1. Being your authentic self
Over the years I’ve met many people who feel compelled to portray themselves as something they are not. They indulge in numerous mind games, lay claim to passions they do not have and pretend they are someone else entirely, all to gain acceptance from others. But what these people have yet to figure out is that there is nothing more beautiful than allowing your authentic self to shine; inclusive of any faults, flaws and idiosyncracies.

Forget your Italian, Irish, Spanish or Flemish, there is no accent in the world more intoxicating, more powerful, more loin stirring than the Scottish accent.
I’ve never been able to work out why or when my fascination with dungarees began, but for as long as I can remember I’ve held the humble denim dungaree (or overall) in the highest possible regard.

After three months it was into the triple figures, making it unequivocably the dungaree capital of the world!
