Saying Goodbye to Christopher

When we see the end,
burning like the embers of paper,
in an engulfing fire,
of sickness, anger, hate and lust,
eyes weaken by the nigh,
that in the days to come,
your spirit will be leaving,
aiming higher through the atmosphere,
to meet angels on star light backs,
of family, friends and faded youth.

You were taken too early,
your body is young,
your mind is aged,
your wisdom out grows the tallest trees,
and the longest rivers,
but still you winded to the end,
with scars of battle,
over your eyes, heart and back,
fighting like mighty historic warriors,
without shame of bended truth.

Devoured by the earth,
taken by the wind,
joining the sands of time,
riding the prayers of happiness,
given by family,
by your bedside,
singing your song,
of hope, lust, faith and dreams,
in hope that your story lives on,
through the endless sunrises

Saying Goodbye to Christopher.

Halloween (1978) | American Horror Story: Freak Show (2014)





So, in the latest American Horror Story episode, there was a lot of mimicking my favourite movie, Halloween and quite honestly, i'm not sure how I feel about it. Most of me loves it, but there's something in me that isn't happy for some reason.

Either way, Michael Myers, my favourite horror character is the height of discussion since the episode aired and that's something I can't dislike!


So, for a while now, Lush have been using the hashtag #LushMen on their social media and has been encouraging guys to do the same, whether you're staff or our devoting customers. At first, I think we all thought it was a lovely way to gather us all up, so we could check out other skincare/beard care regimes. That was until these beauties started showing up.

As you can see above, it's a box. But it's not just an old boring, plain Jane box, it's a beautiful, custom made Lush Men care package, engraved with the glorious Lush logo, slightly changed stating 'Fresh Handmade Grooming Supplies'. I was super excited to see the box in general, that was until I opened it.

Inside is packed full of products i've come to love and devote my time and money towards. Essentially, the #LushMen idea is to promote the use of cosmetics to men and it really is working, from what i've seen. Inside, you get a lovely selection of skin and beard products, ranging from shower gels, hair conditioner and facial moisturiser. In mine, I got Grass Shower Gel, Veganese Hair Conditioner, R&B Hair Moisturiser, Cosmetic Lad facial moisturiser and Squeaky Green shampoo bar. I also got two bonus items, thanks to Michael and Jake; these are Tramp Body Lotion and the eagerly awaited Death and Decay perfume, which is set to hit stores in the New Year, if memory serves me well.

As you can see from the images (which doesn't do it justice, by the way) the box is very fitting for the whole interaction of men into the cosmetics industry. It's a rough and tough box, full of great stuff to protect though tough faces and manly beards.

If you do use Lush products and share your images on social media, please use the #LushMen hashtag and they'll get picked up by other Lush men.

Life and Lunch

Today I had some much needed alone time with this gorgeous guy; he's my best friend and it seems to be pretty difficult to find any time where we can both hang out, without other people being there or having another plan cutting our time short. We met, grabbed a coffee, got some lunch (a tasty chicken burger with the most amazing garlic mayo ever and a Strawberry milkshake and a vanilla soda float for afters) and did some much needed window shopping and I'm really glad we did, it was well overdue.

Michael and I have always had an amazing relationship, whether it's in a social group or just us. We have the most amazing laughs, we catch up on our social lives and share some personal irritations. He's the best person to get it all out to, since we have a very similar view on things. He's someone I can express my true emotions and opinions with and, unlike many, he doesn't shy away from a queer or sexual topics, which is something I'm always talking about, since I have so many thoughts on those matters.

Hopefully it won't be long until we have another one of our little days out, as they're severely missed.
