About Us

What if you are a man in your 50th year, kicking against getting older, but enjoying what comes with having lived life and having got to a settled point in your journey. What if you are looking forward to the next 50 years worth of new experiences!? What if you’re a man in his 50th year who loves cooking and baking, pamper sessions, soft furnishings, tea and coffee sampling, as well as keeping fit, reading, thinking and exploring? Well…. That man is me! And, I suspect it is many of you. Us modern men are all over this stuff and love to talk about it…. But often in secret! Well! No more. Let us embrace Laura Ashley cushions, cuticle soaks, face scrubs and all manner of other products while not forgetting we still love our gadgets and manly ales. Come with me on a journey into herbal teas, jojoba, pistachio paint, and floral prints. Let’s not forget all manner of high tech gear. And let’s get fit, look good, eat well, and basically seize the day, live life and embrace its rich tapestry.

I’m Stephen Mordue dad, partner, son, lecturer, and musician. Living at the intersection of mind, soul, and body. The world around me is of constant fascination. Whether it’s stimulating my mind with books, connecting with ‘the inside’ through meditation, or pushing my body through running it’s all about creating well being through a positive productive lifestyle.

I live on the outskirts of the city of Durham, overlooking rolling countryside in a converted barn with my partner. I have two teenage sons. We are all trying to make the most of every moment and every experience – and sometimes even succeeding! I love trying different things always seeking out quality, whether it’s coffee, gadgets, food, books, or face scrub…. I’m into it all. And I always have an opinion! Just ask my friends!

Come with me. I’ll tell you what I think of all manner of stuff from products, to lifestyle ideas, to being organised to get the most out of each day. Agree with me. Disagree with me. Tell me what you think! Let’s engage! Let’s get mind, spirit, and body in harmony, working together to create the best version of us that we can be…. Now there’s something to work on!
