You cannot go wrong with this beard wash

Posted on August 10, 2015 By

Hello again my trusty readers. My absence has been far too long and I’m hoping to put it instantly behind me with something new for you to feast your eyes upon. So, just what do I have in store for you?

I’m afraid to say there’s a great deal of you who probably won’t find this article of any use, as its only really targeted at men with beards. If you happen to be a women with a beard then feel free to join the party! But in truth, I highly doubt there are any of you out there.

So, why beards? Beards have become so popular in the last couple of years I simply cannot believe it. We have moved on from a time where they were unanimously considered scruffy and untidy and were associated with laziness, unhealthiness, and homeliness.

What do beards mean now? Beards are now associated with virility, class, fashion and strength. Traits that all men should strive to have. Some people may not view beards in this light, but that’s certainly how I see them, and how I think the media and popular culture are conveying them. Needless to say, despite me delaying it for some time, this has had an effect on me, and three months ago was the turning point.

I suddenly woke up and felt the urge, no the need to have a beard. Why was it so sudden? I have no idea. All I knew then was that I was ready to throw away my razor. Now, three months on, I have a healthy and lustrous beard. I couldn’t be prouder of it. The only problem I’ve found with having a beard is the maintenance. I thought having one would save me time, as it meant I wouldn’t have to shave every other morning, but in truth, I do spend a good deal of time each day applying product and styling it with a comb.

Which is a nice segue into the whole point of this blog post – the product review. I’ve been testing out this beard wash over the past few weeks and I really love the way it makes my face feel after using it. It’s deep cleaning, which means I only have to use it once or twice a week. I apply it just like you’d apply a shampoo in the shower. For me, it does a top-notch job, and isn’t too expensive either. For that reason I give it a 4.5 out of 5.


What Direction Should We Be Moving In?

We’re trying our best to create a website that is applicable and useful to everyone. I have doubts about this though, and think maybe it would be best for us to focus in on one particular area or niche of products. What do you readers think? Am I onto something hear or just being a doubting Thomas?


Up Next – A Bluetooth Shower Speaker That Blew Me Away

Posted on May 26, 2015 By

Hey again faithful readers. I’m not sure about you but I personally love having a good sing song in the shower. So much so it began to become a bit of a problem within my relationship. You see, my girlfriend and I started living together only a few months ago, and until then she had no idea about my shower habits. Because our flat is quite small, she can pretty much hear me singing wherever she is in the house. This is always especially bad in the mornings, as I have to wake up earlier then her, she usually gets to stay in bed and sleep for another half an hour or so. That was until my loud singing kept on waking her up. I hate to say it, but I must sound nothing like this guy.

Sometimes I forget and I literally can’t stop myself from doing it. After she told me I had to stop I began to think about some potential solutions. I think the main reason why I did sing in the shower, wasn’t because it was a compulsion but because I was always amazingly bored in there. The sound of music usually halted this boredom and would always put in me a good mood, which in turn is a great way to start the day.

I told her, what if I replace my singing with some different, more soothing music, and asked her if she thought that would help. We wanted to give it a go, and at first tried using a shower radio. This still kept on waking her up though, as the music kept on changing drastically. I’d heard from a friend that you could buy bluetooth speakers to use in the shower. I’m not sure exactly how the technology works but you connect to any music system in your house and start playing the specific music you want to hear. This was great as it allowed me to play some more ambient music. At the end of the day, I was happy and definitely not bored in the shower, and my girlfriend wasn’t waking up, so everyone was a winner. I couldn’t have done it without a top notch shower bluetooth speaker!


Don’t Go Anywhere

If you’re anything like me then you must spend a lot of time on the internet finding brand new websites, visiting them once and then never returning again. I really don’t want this blog to become one of those websites for you. Because of this I’m vowing to post content regularly, as I want you coming back for more all the time!


First Up – This Is Pretty Darn Cool Nut Milk Bag

Posted on May 23, 2015 By

I’m a bit of a health freak and always a sucker for the latest and hottest health and fitness crazes and fads. I’ve always known about almond milk and good it’s supposed to be for you, but I had never actually go out of my way to make it and try it for myself to see what all the fuss was about.

At first I thought it would be easiest to buy it in a store, but I literally couldn’t find it anywhere, even after scouring all of the markets in my town. I then resolved to making it myself. It was until I’d done a bit of reading online that I realised its actually quite a lengthy and complicated process. I already knew that I’d need to get a blender, as I was completely against the idea of crushing the almonds myself, but I had no idea that you also needed something called a nut milk bag to drain the milk from the almonds after they’d been blended.

This time, I didn’t even risk spending a day out at the shops in town looking for a nut milk bag. I thought to myself, what are the chances of me being able to buy a nut milk bag in the shop if I can’t even buy almond milk! The only other option was finding one online. Luckily I’m quite computer savvy and actually do a lot of shopping online, so I’m not what you might call a newbie. The problem I quickly came across was that there was far too many options. There were so many different bags, that all looked fairly similar, so I had no idea of which one I should go with. I eventually decided to get this Vita Nut Milk Bag because of the good reviews it had got.

It was a fair price and worked well so I was pretty happy with it. If you’re thinking of making your own almond milk soon then I suggest you get your hands on a decent blender, and similarly a good milk bag.


Boston Regional Challenge

Posted on May 15, 2015 By

I’m a pretty ambitious guy and always like a new challenge. Recently, I’ve become addicted to writing product reviews online. I write an insane amount at the moment. I decided to give myself a bit of a challenge and see if I can write 50 extensive reviews throughout the year, and document it here on this site. The first one is coming up in a few days. I’m looking forward to this!
