Gentlemen's Odyssey

The Christmas Molada

The snowfall over the weekend certainly set the Christmas ambience in my house, the tree is up and the house is decorated – Fa-la-la-la-la, la-la-la-laaa.

I love all things Christmas, besides the cold. I ventured out in the snow yesterday and everywhere was so much more picturesque, I was annoyed I didn’t bring my camera with me but there’s always next time 😉

Decorating the house took a lot of effort so I treated myself to a drink afterwards. I created, drumroll please, ………’The Christmas Molada’. I’ve dubbed it the ‘molada’ as it’s a mix-up between a mojito and a pina colada, with a pinch of Christmas. With the mix-up you can probably guess that it’s a sweet drink but there’s no better time to indulge in a sweet beverage than during the festive season.

13 Gentlemen Traits Associated with a Modern Gentleman

With that been said, I think it’s only fair for me to provide you with 13 traits and characteristics that I think a gentleman should possess or portray in today’s modern society. It’s also important to understand that I’m not trying to define what or who a ‘classic’ or ‘traditional’ gentleman is but to simply provide you with the character that I associate with modern gentlemen.

A Visit To The Past

Right… where do I begin? First and foremost happy Sunday everyone, it has been a while since I last posted on here. I’m currently in a transitionary phase in my personal life and with that comes quiet a few changes and challenges, which I had to take some time out to focus on. As humans we should always strive to evolve, learn and ultimately grow. I’m back in the blogosphere and boy do I have content for all you gentlemen and fashionistas out there.

Fashion Choices; Past V’s Present

Have you ever wondered why humans wear clothes? It’s pretty simple; clothes protect us against weather and environmental elements as well providing comfort. Believe it or not humans resembled hairy mammals back in the day and clothes were introduced as a result of humans losing excess body hair prior to the ice age (bad timing right?)
