ThatIsBeyond…Supporting your tackle with HOM

With all of the trials and tribulations of Marathon training I had to take some time to explore the right underwear to protect my tackle on the big day!

ThatIsBeyond…The @boxmenswear internet trolls

This post is a kneejerk reaction. No doubt it will generate its own comment feed of hate, but I have OFFICIALLY had enough.

ThatIsBeyond… Empty bottles from the man about the house!

In my house I am responsible for the majority of products adorning the shelves in our bathroom!

ThatIsBeyond… Dads, It’s A Beard Thang!

Along with my bouncing baby boy, came a quite distinguished beard (on my face that is, not his!). I think it was a combination of having no time to run out and get a razor, and no energy to tackle the ever-growing beast!  Long gone were the itchy days of beard growth! The worst was […]

ThatIsBeyond… What the Pecksniffs is that?!.
