Michael Kors: Watches that make women break their NECKS!

A lot of women love designer Michael Kors; he’s a judge on Project Runway, and one of the best designers known to man!  I think more women wear his fashions than men; and yes, his clothes are expensive!  Just recently, I took a trip to Lord and Taylor and noticed a whole collection of Michael Kors men’s watches. There’s nothing more timeless than a good time-piece! Check out some of my favorites for men.

Men’s Cologne: Strong, Fresh and Sweet- how every girl likes her man to be, and how she likes her man to smell

Picking a cologne can be very difficult and can take a long time.  When buying a new fragrance every man should keep two thoughts in mind, one: how do I like this smell, and two: how will my girlfriend like this smell on me? Some women like strong scents, some like fresh scents, and some like sweet.  If you’re going cologne browsing by yourself and don’t know where to start, use these fragrances to help navagate your way around the cologne counter; especially if you’re looking for something new for Valentines Day.

Strong

Drakkar Noir is a cologne that has been around for a long time.  This is a classic fragrance, one that you might have seen on your dads dresser when you were growing up.  It is very warm; reminds me of cigars.  It Smells like Egyptian musk with hints of licorice and spice.  Just be sure to apply this one sparingly because it has a very strong scent.

Aramis Is also one of the classics too, it’s been around since the 70’s and isn’t going anywhere anytime soon.  This one is sweet, but very strong, manly, and robust.  I have to admit  I’m not a big fan of strong colognes, but I love to hug guys who wear this fragrance. The smell of it makes me feel relaxed and safe; the way a girl should feel when she’s in a man’s arms.  This one  smells like leather with hints of floral and vanilla.

Cool

Nautica Voyage is one of my favorite cool scents for men.  It starts off smelling like the ocean and sea-breeze  but as it develops, you start to smell different spices    lingering underneath the cool ocean scents.  This one is great for guys who are really into water sports because the smell of it really captures a part of the ocean.

Calvin Klein’s Eternity: Agua is also a great fragrance for men.  This one differs from Nautica Voyage in that the oceanic-cool smell lasts longer and the scent is less spicy  and has a truer ocean-breeze quality.  Both of these are really sporty and great for guys who like colognes that reflect what things they like to do in real life.

Sweet

Prada Amber is a beautiful smell.  It starts off very sweet, smelling like vanilla and cedar wood, then as the fragrance develops. It turns into a very warm, fresh-out-the-shower-soapy smell.  This one is great for the guy who’s girlfriend  likes sweet scents on him, but want’s something more than your average vanilla/chocolate axe spray.  This one reminds me of leather, vanilla and soap; sounds like a weird combination, but it all smells so sexy together.

Angel Men.  You may have seen a fragrance called, “Angel” on your girlfriends dresser top at some point, but don’t worry because the  Angel fragrance for men comes in a completely different bottle (so you guys won’t be matching).  This cologne is as sweet as it gets when it comes to men’s cologne.  It smells like vanilla and caramel   If you are looking for a fragrance that will make your girlfriend want to “eat” you, this is the one.

Men’s style: John Varvatos, a designer that knows what the American man looks like

John Varvatos is one designer that men of all ages look really sexy wearing.  His clothes are like 19th century English gent meets 2012  Brooklyn hustla’.

All his looks provide a clean and classy silhouette  with enough edginess to make them stand out amongst a sea of mediocre  designs and more of the  same ol’ same ol’.  I love the fact that he is an American designer and you can see how being “made in America,” has deeply influenced his style perspective.

His designs have a comfortable  fit and are cut to give an almost-tailored look.  My favorite parts of his collection are the accessories.  Bags, sunglasses, belts, cuff links and even fragrances, give Varvato’s line a very unique identity.

These are some of my favorite pieces from Varvatos, I even bought my boyfriend a couple of his things for Christmas.

Men’s Skin Care: the top 3 ways to protect your skin from wrinkling, the younger you start, the better

When it comes it comes to stopping your skin from aging, the secret is to be proactive and start before the wrinkling starts.  The truth of the matter is that once you get wrinkly, the only way to make yourself look better is plastic surgery; but research shows that if you change a few things while your young (or wrinkle free, usually around 35-40), then the better your chances are preserving your skin.  Although many wrinkle lotions are made for women, no one wants to watch their body and facial features rot  right in front of their eyes, and as a man, you don’t have to watch the favorite parts of your face sag, decapitate, and fade away, as long as you do something to stop it early enough.

Antioxidants

When you ingest vitamins, the antioxidants and  minerals usually are not used to nourish the  skin, but when applied topically the skin does a really good job at directly absorbing the nutrients. Antioxidants aide the skin in its ability to protect itself from pollutants, which results in the skins enhanced ability to moisturize, to prevent breakouts, and to fade and prevent age spots and dark spots ( that frequently pose as freckles).  Vitamins A, E and C are a combination of antioxidants and vitamins that have anti-wrinkling properties. These vitamins assist the skin in moisture absorption,  prevent the formation of liver spots and dark spots, and  aide the skin in pollution protection.  Unfortunately, most really good antioxidant lotions can cost up to $100 or more, but you can find a good one for around $30.  If you only use it on your face, hands and neck, it will last a really long time.

This is a Vitamin C lotion from the Signature A club brand.  It's only about $30.  VitaminC helps tighten the skin, and hlps fade age spots, or dark spots, like pimple bruises, or bruises left behind from ingrown hairs.  This cream doesn't feel greasy on the face, and doesn't smell girly.

Omega Fatty Acids and Collagen

The last layer of your skin is made of fatty tissue that over the years, looses moisture and begins to sag.  Collagen creams can help fill these fat deposits if they are already sagging.  If they aren’t sagging yet, creams with Omega fatty acids (like omega 3, or 6) are great at assisting the skin in maintaining a healthy fat deposit, in order to stop wrinkling.  lotions that  have flaxseed oil or almond oil will have Omega 3 and 6 fatty acids, which is good for your skin. Just be sure to use these every other day (not daily) if you have oily skin, in order to prevent clogged pores( clogged pores =pimples).

Exfoliate

using a face scrub will allow your skin to shed the outer layer of dead skin that accumulates on the skin’s surface, which is virtually impossible to get rid of without exfoliating.  Sometimes, even after your first time exfoliating you’ll see a big difference in your skin.  Exfoliating prevents pimples, and prevents dead skin from accumulating on the skins surface. This means that the healthier layer of skin will be able to receive better nourishment (from the lotions you use, the sun and so forth). Just remember to exfoliate your hands, neck and face at the same time.

This honey and oat scrub is perfect for all types off skin and won't get stuck in  your beard. The best thing about it is that it won't make you breakout, and that you can buy it  at any drugstore.  it usually costs no more than $5.

Through-Back Thursdays: Wonerwall by Oasis- are we all waiting for the savior, that is always on a cigarette break?

G

Movies, books, songs, even poems, tell people what men need and what women need.  I’ve known my boyfriend for nine years now, but it wasn’t until maybe the fifth year, that I found out what I really meant to him.  It wasn’t until I sat down and really looked at our relationship, that I realized ( in the fifth year) that I had abandoned him every time he really needed me, I mean, REALLY needed me.  He had helped me through  the hardest parts of my life-step by step, day by day, tear after tear. But every time he got thrown out of his house, I wasn’t there, even when he got in his car accident, I wasn’t there. When he was at his worst, I wasn’t there. That’s when it dawned on me that partly, because he was a man, I didn’t realize (at the time) that he needed me to be their.  I think men spend a lot of time waiting for women to find out that their not the only ones locked in a tower, waiting for a savior to find them and break the magic curse; that guys need to be rescued sometimes too.  Wonderwall, by Oasis, released in 1995 made me think of the waiting; for that person who you would catch a bullet for, to  understand that you’re made  flesh, and that so far your ass has been getting shot up.  I’m glad I understood that I needed to save him sometimes, but some girls just don’t ever figure it out.

 

Anyway, that’s why Wonderwall is our thro’ back. wutcha think about this one guys?

Men’s Style 2013: Top ways to becoming the sexiest man at the New Year’s Eve party

Men’s fashion can seem so simplistic sometimes; the regular, run of the mill pants and a shirt can be boring.  As a result, guys end up all looking the same, especially at the club or at parties.  This New Year‘s, you can definitely stand out amungst your peers just by changing a few things.

First of all, being  extremely stylish and well groomed doesn’t make you any less of a man.  Think of it like this, putting your own special flair into your daily fashion shows what’s special and unique about you. Sometimes your fashion speaks louder than your words, so when you go out this New Year’s Eve to celebrate 2013, let your fashion speak for you so you don’t have to worry so much about what your words are saying. Got it? Good.

A great blazer is a great place to start.  Don’t wear a sweater, and try to avoid bulky long-sleeve shirts (like those make of wool or tweed). It’s a good chance that you’ll be having a few drinks on New Year’s; whether you are going to a club or to a get together with friends, the drinks and the people are going to make you pretty warm.  Wear layers so that if you need to strip, you can.  For example, a great top ensemble might be a blazer and a graphic tee, or a blazer, a button-up shirt, and a tee-shirt underneath (depending on where you’re going).

This ensemble is also from Hugo Boss. Take a look at the movement and flow of the pants.  They are sexy, and are loose enough around the crotch and legs; making them very comfortable and easy to wear.

This New Year”s Eve, you want to be as comfortable as possible.  While your drinking and having fun, you don’t want to be worried about what your clothes look like.  For that reason, I’d stay away from tight pants.  Although they can be sexy, loose pants are sexy too.

Tight clothes make you at least twice as much self-conscious than you need to be. Trust me, I’m a girl. Tight-ass pants and alcohol will just make you look fatter than usual at the end of the night.

New Year’s Eve is the perfect holiday to add fun, dorky objects of curio to your outfit.  These kind of things  could be New Year’s themed glasses, cups, pins, hats, glow ropes, and an array of other goofy products that are available that I just haven’t seen yet. These types of things are great for stirring up conversation, and they make you look like the fun guy in the group.

Overall, make sure what you wear this New Year’s is something that you feel comfortable in, and is something that lets your personality through.  Don’t be the boring guy in 2013!

Have you ever been out with a girl and wanted to do something sexy, but didn’t want it to be something that was obvious to everyone else around? There are many super sensitive places on a woman’s body that are in plain sight even when she’s fully dressed, and every loves a little PDA sometimes.

1. The infamous neck.

The neck is a hot spot for men and women, all the time. A great way to get a woman aroused in plain sight is to whisper in her ear a secret.  You can whisper whatever you want in her ear, but make sure your lips touch her neck at some point, and say some words with the H sound in them so a bit of your breathe can tickle her neck.  If she’s into you, her eyes will sort of roll, in a “feel’s good” sort of way, or she might grab her neck when your done, as if she’s bracing herself for what’s next.  If she’s not into you, she won’t even let you get close enough to feel her neck. Give it a shot and let me know how it goes.

2. The ears.

The ears are really sensitive and can easily get a woman aroused, but there are some rules to follow when activating the ears in public.  A moderate level of comfort and attraction has to already be established before you can use the ears in public, otherwise it will just seem too creepy. Basically, If  you’ve had sex with the girl already, then it’s safe to use the ears in  public. The back of the ear is the most sensitive part of the ear itself and the best way to reach it in public is to actually touch it, more like, caress it.  If the two of you are sitting side by side, put your arm around her shoulder and sort of pull her into your chest, then lightly grab her ear, fingers in the front and your thumb behind the ear.  Once your hand is in place, rub your thumb up and down in a natural motion.  If she’s into you, she’ll sort of close her eyes in pleasure and she take a deep breathe when your done. If she’s not into you, she won’t even let you feel her ear.

Other places that were good, but didn’t make the list:

cheeks (the one’s on the face)

The #1 easiest way to get rid of man acne!

DISGUSTING!

Does your face look like this?  If you have bad skin, you know how hard it can be to find something that works.  A lot of guys that I know who pick regular drugstore acne treatments quit using them in a matter of weeks, or are constantly complaining about the burning and irritation the treatments cause.

Everyone at some point has went to sleep with toothpaste on their skin. The reason why toothpaste works so well is because of the baking soda inside.  Baking soda helps remove oil, dirt and bacteria from the pores, which is why it’s so good at getting rid of acne breakouts.

Before you invest in a pricey acne treatment, see if a daily baking soda mask will work for you. Give this treatment at least a month before calling it quits.  If you don’t have chronic acne and are using it for just a few pimples, you’ll be able to see a difference after the first usage.

What you will need:

  • tbsp of baking soda
  • pure water

Mix the two until the mixture looks and feels like a paste.  If it’s too watery, it will be too messy when you put it on.  You can either apply it all over your face, or directly onto the pimple.  Leave it on for at least three minutes.  Ff the pimple is really big, you might want to leave it on over night.

Things to add to make the baking soda mask even stronger:

  1. pure lemon extract (not imitation)
  2. pure almond extract (not imitation)
  3. apple cider vinegar
  4. a crushed vitamin A tablet

All of these extra ingredients naturally draw dead skin, bacteria, oil and dirt out of the skin, however, they all will burn when using them to get rid of acne. If your skin is really bad, I would not HESITATE to grab any one of these to  make the baking soda mask even stronger! Cry now, celebrate later 🙂
