Out with @xcallymagsx this week at @o2cityhallnewcastle watching the hilarious @romeshranga and @littlelostlad c/o @tace.t 😃 • See! I can do posts when I’m not taking photos of cars (that might be the next one 😋)
You may have recently seen a post on my Instagram story asking you to get involved in what you’d like to see more of. Lots of people said more cars, a few said less cars and there were a good amount of you who wanted to see more general content. • I listened and I’m now trialling a few different ideas so I really appreciate it if you got involved. Watch this space! • In other news, the ABSORBmobile got its scheduled Winter Detail Protection from @jbsdetailing_ this week and I can honestly say it looks epic. It’s clean and now protected against the elements, so whatever Mother Nature has to throw at me and my car over the next few months, we’re ready! • I think there’s also something to be said for supporting local independent businesses which I never really talk about. JBS is currently one guy, a young business owner with a huge focus on his customers with lots of great plans for the future. I buy into his ethos of really caring about his customers by way of great communication, his enthusiasm, passion, knowledge, dedication, and transparency when my car is being looked after. • It’s easy to get suckered in to a business charging extortionate prices (mainly because they can, and trust me, I’ve fallen into this trap), but it’s the finer details which customers expect these days that makes you go back again and again. If you’re treated like just another customer, a statistic, people will vote with their feet and go elsewhere. • JBS Detailing though is right on the money, and if you love your car as much as I love mine (especially if you want to leave it in safe hands) I highly recommend getting in contact with him for any detailing, valeting or mechanical work. • Supporting local independent businesses for the win!
💍 Can you believe it? She said yes... • • • • • • • • • • ...to the fact that our bag of Haribo Star Mix has two rings in the bag. Who’d have thought? We love those. I quite like the cola bottles and the fried eggs. Perfect road trip snacks these.
Autumn is here [so I hear]. The ABSORBmobile is looking so moody in this one. Is this one of the best car photos I’ve ever taken?
A big thank you to @bbcnewcastle for having me along today to audition for #BBCNewVoices 👍🎥🎵 • I’ve not really had the opportunity to really flex my musical muscles these last twelve months or so. Sometimes life has a habit of throwing obstacles our way and we’re forced to drop things in order to focus on the here and now and to get through some challenging times. • That said, and this will sound like such a cliché, but a positive mindset will always see you through and there is always light at the end of the tunnel. I’m starting to see some light now after what has been a difficult two or three years which may explain my inconsistency when it comes to music, but my single with @mvngoesmusic and @reiss.harrison (see my Instagram bio) has really reenergised my drive, passion and not least my determination to continue pushing forward. • I found this #BBCNewVoices c/o @bbcnewcastle opportunity through @xcallymagsx (♥️), and I nearly didn’t even go, but I guess sometimes it’s about taking your own advice and seeing what happens because we never know what’s around the next corner. • Note to self: nothing is ever simple but it’s all part of a journey. Ride the wave #PTFAD
Always great times with @xcallymagsx Love you lots ♥️
The perfect Sunday off. I spent some much deserved time with the beautiful @xcallymagsx before getting to work on making the ABSORBmobile look EPIC in the summer sun ☀️ • The @eibach_springs_uk (20mm all around) have bedded themselves down really well, and despite a mildly firmer ride than from stock (to be expected), it’s given my A1 an OEM+ look which is exactly what I was going for. It doesn’t need to be completely slammed to the ground and my car sits really nice on these stunning @japanracingwheels JR15s (as ceramic coated by @jbsdetailing_ ) which take things to a whole new level. I didn’t want anything too shouty but it’s given this mass produced vehicle a totally different look. • Two things would really finish everything off. Firstly, I’m now totally undecided as to whether I should de-chrome the grille and get this and the mirror caps wrapped in a subtle but classy colour just to make it less shiny (maybe it’s time get @jake_wrapper on board 👍). The grille now matches the wheels in a strange sort of way but I’ve never been sold on the stock grille. • The second thing is the addition of a shoutier exhaust. I can’t change this to be honest, owing to the fact that this will go back at some point on a PCP, however, I travel through the @tyne_tunnels every day, and I was stalked by an awesome sounding S3 the other day and it really hit home just how mute (or refined, whichever way you look at it) my car is. Maybe not on this vehicle, but a louder exhaust would be pretty awesome at some point. • Whatever happens though, this car is still UNREAL! Take a look at my photo as it was given a full contact wash today using @bilthamber, @autofinesse and @chemicalguys products.
Throwback Thursday. This was when @xcallymagsx and I attended Newcastle Car Show at @newcastleraces last year. Shout out @newcastlene1! • My amazingly incompetent iCloud told me that was storage was nearing full capacity and so I’ve been on a deleting mission tonight. I then came across this series of photos when I must have been a little trigger happy but it shows what an amazing time we had and what a special woman she really is. • Loves ya! ❤️
If you missed the recent news, the highly talented @mvngoesmusic has released a BRAND NEW single titled ‘CHAPTER & VERSE’ which features the incredible @reiss.harrison along with a guest verse from myself and it’s available to stream and download at your favourite music platforms. • 🔉Get involved by taking a listen 🔉 • We’d love to know what you think 👍
