It has been a while since I last posted but I had taken a break from blogging and focused on getting my life in order; sorting out work life, private life but now that is all in order I can now get back to stuff that has peaked my interest. A couple of months my huge 30 gallon tank water heater was on the blink – meaning it was just about done. This is when I took it upon my self to go out shopping online to find a replacement that would match my needs. I’m very fussy when it comes to expensive purchases online so here are my thoughts regarding a purchase of a water heater and hope it helps someone in the same position.

 Electric Water Heater

My house is a medium sized building with 3 bedrooms and two bathrooms. I had the previous 30 gallon tank when I moved in 5 years ago. It looked pretty worn out then so you can imagine what it was like just before it finished up on me. It was a big, old ugly thing that took up the majority of my cupboard, where I struggled to store anything else but this big, ugly water heater. A couple of months ago I switched my tap on to wash the dishes and there was no hot water. After phoning a technician they said it was finished and that I needed a new one. I was pretty gutted when I was given this news because I knew I was going to have to fork out quite a lot of cash for a replacement. But I bit the bullet and started investigating for a replacement.

After doing quite a bit of research I worked out I was spending far too much on my energy bills as this was an inefficient tank water heater. So basically throughput the day the heater would heat up water just in case in needed the hot water which of course was costing me money so decided to go with a tankless water heater. These systems only heat up water when requested ie when you turn the tap on or the shower, the tankless immediately heats up water. This I worked out would save not only energy but also money which of course impressed me. I didn’t buy any tankless but an electric water heater. Research has shown these new electric tankless water heaters can save up to 80% in energy. So even though this was costing quite a lot up front, I worked out this new system was actually saving me money every year. After 5 years I would make my money back. I was delighted when I worked this out.

So basically if you have an old hot water heater costing you a lot of money each year on your heating bills, you should consider changing over to a new, efficient tankless electric water heater which may seem costly at first but will save you money in the long run.

As it is approaching summer I have decided to post my ideal outfit for this season. After looking through various brands, I decided to go with Reiss as their new SS10 collection is pretty cool. I think this outfit not only looks great but also looks really comfortable. Sometimes comfort is sacrificed for style but not this time. I’ve gone for a casual look but there still remains a level of sophistication that i like. I don’t usually wear hats but I think once again hats will be huge this summer and I’m really digging this one. The casual jacket will be ideal for protection against the chill of the summer nights.

As we approach Summer and the temperatures increase I feel that I have nowhere near enough Polo Shirts – my preference for this weather. As I was scouring the internet looking to refresh my wardrobe, I came across the Gant online store – one of my favourite brands. The Gant premium lifestyle brand combines American casualness with European elegance that launched all the way back in 1949. So they must know a thing or two. Their range of Men’s Polo Shirts is really exciting, consisting of vibrant colours that are perfect for the Summer. No one wants to wear blacks and greys at this time of year, so here are a couple of Gant polo shirts for men to brighten up your day.

The Cannes Film Festival is one of the oldest, most prestigious film events in the world. The Festival which first started in 1946 is held in May of every year in the small town of Cannes in the south of France. The annual event’s main programme is the competition where twenty films compete for the prestigious Palme d’Or award decided by a panel of judges, joined this year by Tim Burton. With such a prize up for grabs, it is no wonder that movie star royalty have flown from around the world to take it the summer’s main film event. An event with so much history and class, it is small wonder that these celebrities have turned up in their best outfits. The women stick to the classy dresses, whilst the men go with the tried and trusted suit and silk tie look. Photographs from the Cannes Film Festival will make their way around the globe to fronts of the most popular fashion magazines. With so much focus on attire, these celebrities must look their best. There is a general consensus that Kate Beckinsale stole the show with this beautiful dress.

I went to see the new Robin Hood film with Russell Crowe last night. In my opinion it just wasn’t for me. I didn’t enjoy it, nor did the film immerse me into the world of Robin Hood. The film was around 2h 30 mins long. I don’t mind long films but when you’re rather bored then time sort of drags. I was very aware that Russell Crowe was basically playing his Maximus role in this film, although not quite as cool. The Sheriff of Nottingham was reduced to a bumbling fool in this film – how I longed for Alan Rickman to make an appearance!  The ever watchable Mark Strong who plays the main villian was probably the best thing. The ever dependable Cate Blanchett as reliable as ever. The movie looks great under the direction of Ridley Scott, however the story line was just boring. Discovering the origins of Robin Hood could have been such an exciting experience, however it was reduced to cheesy jokes and cringing “rousing” speeches that seem to turn a whole country around in 40 seconds. It was at the end of the movie, that it starts getting exciting, however for me it was too little too late. To be honest I prefer the Kevin Costner version – Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves. But this is just my opinion, i’m sure others will disagree.

World Cup Fever!

May 6, 2010

The four year wait is nearly over; the 2010 FIFA World Cup held in South Africa will soon be underway. ONLY 35 DAYS TO GO! The world’s greatest players along with hundreds of thousands of fans will descend upon the south coast of Africa to take in what is arguably the greatest sporting event in the world. Various countries around the globe will come to a standstill to watch their team try to become the best Football nation on the planet. Pubs will be packed to the rafters, partners will be forgotten about and pets will go hungry as all attention shifts to South Africa. This is the first time the Football World Cup has been held in Africa and consequently the major sporting brands are queuing up to get involved in all things African. Newly designed t-shirts, jeans, sweaters and jeggings have been created with an African flavour. Many clothing brands are starting to jump on the Football bandwagon as World Cup fever takes over. Some of the best examples include Gio Goi’s own brand of Football Tees. These are t-shirts specifically designed for the World Cup. Some of these Football Tees are clad in the tri colours of Italy and the colurs of Brazil; allowing the wearer to both support their country and look trendy. My home country of Scotland may not be involved but i’m still going to try and take in every single game, a tall order I know but one i am willing to make sacrifices for.
