Over the years, the idea of cleansing your face has changed drastically. The tools we use and technology play such a huge part—this goes for women and men. Yes, men too! A few weeks ago, my good friend Jeshua and I were invited out to Baxter Finley Barber & Shop in L.A. to check out the new Clarisonic Alpha Fit for men. It’s a new cleansing system designed specifically for a man’s face.
I’ve always believed in investing in the basics and accessorizing or layering with stand out pieces. This is the same train of thought I use when I’m shopping for my hubby. It only makes sense. So, as I was looking around online, I came across the Old Navy Big & Tall section. I was impressed with some of the designs for men that they’re offering right now.
After rummaging through the hubby’s closet, I realized he needs a few things for fall. Of course, he hates shopping, so that gives me the opportunity to have a little fun. So, I went online and found some things I think he’ll like. And that’s how I came up with these fall essentials for men. Now, these are items that are great for pairing with other existing pieces in their wardrobe and perfect for layering.
Is there a science when it comes to men’s underwear? I’ve never really given it much thought. Whenever I go shopping for my hubby, I just grab the ones that look the most comfortable. Usually they’re cotton, tagless, and in the shape of a boxer brief. That’s about it. I’ve especially never given any thought to men’s big and tall underwear. That is until now—and I can thank Parker & Pine for that.

When it comes to grooming products for my hubby, I make sure that I do the shopping. If it was up to him, he’d buy the cheap and generic stuff. That’s fine for some, but I know that these products don’t work for his oily skin. They actually do more harm than good. That’s why I’m really happy for him to give the Neutrogena Men’s line a try.
When it comes to shopping for big and tall clothing for the hubby, it can be a challenge. I know I’m not alone in this and I’ve said it before. Everyone knows how hard it is to find stylish clothing for men—that’s not too trendy. Especially, in the stores. That’s why I went online and found 10 favorites that would be perfect for late spring and summer.
Let’s be honest. You’re going to run across countless posts on “Father’s Day Gift Ideas.” They will either be products you’ll love or hate. I’m hoping the Dollar Shave Club is one you’ll love, because this is pretty cool. Especially, for the dad’s out there that have to shave pretty much every day.
I’m going to try really hard to not cry while writing this post. I love my papa. I care about him more than I think he knows. He might joke around about me being his “other mother” whenever we go (or when I force him to go) to his doctor’s appointments. I can’t help it, I love the guy. No, we didn’t have the perfect relationship as I was growing up, but he worked his hands to the bone to provide for us. This Father’s Day, let’s celebrate the dad’s in our lives and show them they are appreciated. How about we start with a Lubriderm giveaway?
It seems like every day I hear the complaints about not being able to find the right clothes for our big and tall guys. Believe me, I know your pain! But, I want you to know it’s out there. We just have to look. Like today, I discovered Cubavera carries Big & Tall up to a size 4X!
I’m going to be completely honest here. I have no control over the skin care products my hubby uses. As much as I want him to use certain brands, his face is in his hands (literally). He really doesn’t like trying new things…that is until I was sent the Aveeno Men’s skin care line to review.
I really wish the hubby would wear everything I picked out for him. But, it’s not a perfect world and he doesn’t. How dare he have his own personal style. On a serious note, finding clothes for him is a challenge. He’s super picky and let’s not even get started on the lack of Big and Tall sizes in our local department stores. Then I remembered JCPenney (a.k.a JCP) carries a decent selection online.
When it comes to classic American fashion, you can’t help but think of Ralph Lauren. Whenever I do a search online for Big&Tall clothing, his line always pops up. Yet, I don’t know many guys actually wearing it. Why not? This line carries essential pieces that can be worked into your wardrobe. This is great for you guys who hate shopping. This means less shopping, because you already have what you need!
