The Journal by TWC is exactly that, a Journal of a life, of sorts, a collection of articles about things many of us love and enjoy. From fashion to cocktails, to travel, wine and some of the simple things in life, with some literature and film thrown in. 

My name is Thomas W Coombs esq. and am the writer and curator of this website. With so many things in this world wanting our attention, I hope I have created a place and aesthetic that you find as calming and as entertaining as I do.  With an idea to educate and advise and maybe just help you realx with the reading of my collection of articles.  Every other month a selection of articles will be posted, you can follow my daily life via Instagram @coombstw and also contact me via Instagram or by email at

Please head back the front page as and when the feeling takes you, all that I ask is that you comment and share as much as your time will manage.
