The List: Mid-Summer Essentials for Men

July 19, 2017

Recently I switched up my style and daily grooming routine so I have put together a male must have list that will instantly transform the average Joe to a dapper dude. These brands are not only suave and sexy they also are healthy and strategically crafted to make any man appear to be the perfect gentleman. Every man loves a good pair of sunnies, undies, sex, and effective grooming products. After my research these are the best I have personally tried thus far and I highly recommend you go out and get them immediately to impress that special someone or just to better yourself. Since every man loves sex the first product I want to turn you on to (pun intended) is Sex Dust by Moon Juice. This is a lusty blend of adaptogenic superherbs that help combat the effects of stress to ignite your creative and sexual energy, in and out of the bedroom. I prefer adding to a protein shake with a nut butter but you can add this product to your morning coffee, water or pretty much anything you drink excluding alcohol. The special blend consists of Ho Shou Wu, Organic Cacao, Shilajit, Maca, Organic Schisandra, Cistanche, Epimedium and Organic Stevia leaf.

Every male loves a fresh pair of undies and Related Garments invented the perfect pair of boxer briefs that come with two pairs of matching socks, one being long and the other being footies that are not seen when wearing shoes. Honestly, these are probably the comfiest underwear I have ever worn even beating out the usual go-to Calvin Klein collection. Related Garments states they were built on the principle that every detail counts, even if it goes (mostly) unseen. Men deserve better when it comes to the basics. No longer should we be subjected to dingy, hole-ridden, stretched-out waistband underwear and socks. Considering the fact that your underwear is hugging your most precious package we think your goods deserve what is good. Related has a dual meaning and message, besides the obvious about the founders being brothers, it only seemed logical that socks and underwear should be sold in pairs. Stylish and luxurious sets of socks and underwear make prep work in the morning simple–and leave a lasting impression.

Another thing no man should leave the house without are a nice pair of sunnies. These effortlessly chic and affordable sunglasses are made by Chimi Eyewear  I have the Kiwi colored – out of the nine different colors in three classical models- and wear them every single day. I get compliments on them everywhere I go from the grocery store to running at the park. Chimi Eyewear is based in Stockholm, Sweden but ships worldwide free of charge – that deal is hard to beat. Chimi Eyewear’s colorful shades are made for colorful people. CHIMIs are designed to match every mood and style of colorful peoples lives.

I strongly believe in the importance of a distinguished and diligently dapper gentleman always being consistent with grooming. Three brands I absolutely love and incorporate into my daily regimen are Kiehl’sSonage and Herbivore.  I use the Sonage Patagonia Berry Stem Cell mask which is one of the best face masks on the market and doesn’t burn like most masks while fully hydrating my skin; Herbivore’s gorgeous orange Phoenix facial oil that gives you that sexy confident wrinkle-less glow every man needs and the entire Kiehl’s Age Defender moisturizing line as well as the Kiehl’s Grooming Solutions Texturizing Clay for the perfectly flexible hold with an aroma of Cedarwood, Sandalwood and Eucalyptus essential oils.

Almost all of the rope used for their sandals, handbags, yoga mat carrier, and water bottle carrier is all from recycled and reused rope, which is an important step for material conservation as well as job creation and keeping debris out of our landfills.

Nomadic State of Mind has over a dozen of different styles for men, women and children – there is a style for everyone.  They are ideal for the beach, lake, pool, walking around the city, or a backyard BBQ; pair them with shorts, skirts, maxi dresses, boyfriend jeans or your favorite bathing suite too!  Beyond comfortable (and no you don’t get rope burn!), Nomadic State of Mind will be your go-to sandal that will last for years and never lose it’s shape!

Boody Eco Wear

June 10, 2017

I have a real underwear issue. I never find comfy undies that breath and don’t feel like I have something up my butt. I am not into g-strings or thongs or that feeling of feeling uncovered. Yes, I like granny pants. Or, what would be considered granny pants in this day and age. A basic brief. I tried ordering cotton ones on Amazon but they quickly fell apart and the color (black) faded. They are hideous. When I heard about the Boody Eco Wear line organic collection of natural fibers undies, tanks and tops, I perked up. 

I know about Bamboo fabric – that it is naturally temperature regulating, meaning if you are cold, it keeps you warm and if you are hot it cools you down. It’s also naturally sweat wicking – an incredible alternative to synthetic fabrics. Better for the body and the environment. I could not wait to try them.

Let’s just say, I’m obsessed. I have not had them long so I need to see how they wash, wear and hold up over time, but they felt like heaven from the moment I put them on. I did not get the real granny waist high ones but the Hipster Bikini, a mid-brief and they are absolutely perfect.

They are only 9.95 so you can stock the heck up. I am!

Silky Soft

Never has ecowear been so luxurious. Boody is as soft as your favorite pajamas, but performs as high quality activewear.

Boody makes tops, leggings, tanks, socks and a line for men and babies – overall the pieces are perfect for stretching, easy hiking/walking or yoga and of course – just wearing. 

Thermo-Regulating

Stay cool in the summer and warm in winter, without bulk. Bamboo fiber is lighter and softer than cotton and perfect for layering.

Anti-Static

No one likes being clingy. Unlike traditional cotton basics, Boody will keep its distance as bamboo fibers prevent static build-up.

The story begins with the bamboo. Made from organic toxic free bamboo plants, Boody bamboo is sustainable and requires much less water than cotton plants. Even the box is recycled and printed with vegetable-based ink!

BODY VIBES Smart Stickers

May 28, 2017

“The universe doesn’t speak English, Chinese, or Spanish;
it speaks frequencies.”

Body Vibes are smart stickers programmed to deliver natural bio-frequencies through energy resonant exchange to optimize brain and body functions, restore missing cell communication, and accelerate the body’s natural ability to heal itself.

Body Vibes work by targeting the Central Nervous System, a hub of energy powered by a network of electrical signals that vibrate along our nerves. It controls everything we do, including our responses to pleasure and pain. The bio-frequencies programmed into Body Vibes mimic the same frequencies that are already found in our body. For this reason, they are able to travel across our electrical pathways, replenishing any deficiencies and raising our vibration to the perfect frequency. We recommend wearing Body Vibes daily for at least one month to experience a positive energy shift that sparks the body’s amazing ability to heal from within.

MEET THE FOUNDERS:

Leslie was introduced to bio-frequency technology through her husband, who was suffering from Rheumatoid Arthritis. He was a given non-chemical frequency patch to manage his pain, an application that provided tremendous relief without the side effects. As fortune would have it, the technology covered a wide range of health concerns that included anxiety, which Leslie had been living with since childhood.

“It was such a blessing to find something that controlled my anxiety and brought my system back into balance,” said Leslie. “I was prescribed Ativan for my anxiety, and although it helped, it carried many side effects. The frequency stickers slowly rebooted my nervous system, giving me the space to regain my perspective and equilibrium.”

She introduced the frequency technology to her business partner, Madison, who had been dealing with shoulder pain for years. She tried the pain relief frequency, and was amazed at how much better she felt afterward. Madison then shared the technology with her sister, who, at the time, was taking anti-anxiety medication to manage her severe anxiety. She now uses several of the stickers regularly as an alternative to her prescription medication.

Leslie and Madison knew they had to share this technology with their clientele, but wanted to do so in a way that connected more with today’s culture. They partnered with Bio-Energy Synthesis Technology developer Richard Eaton of AlphaBio Centrix to create a line of fashionable, wearable smart stickers. Thus Body Vibes was born.

With all the positive feedback and heartfelt testimonials received since its inception, Leslie and Madison are excited to finally share Body Vibes with the rest of the world. Their collective dream is to have everyone vibing at the perfect frequency.

   YES ! Energy frequency stickers.   

The color blue is blue, because it has the specific frequency that makes it blue. We are able to hear sounds because our bodies have the ability to translate frequencies into sounds that make sense to us. It’s the same way we form visual images. Our bodies are natural energy sources; we absorb and generate energy.

All of our bodies operate at an optimal internal frequency – a sweet spot in the neighborhood of 62-72Hz. Studies have shown that when your frequency slips, your immune system is compromised, which opens the door to getting sick. In fact, scientists have discovered a frequency for virtually every known illness. Can’t shake that cold or flu? You’re down in the 57-60Hz range, a danger zone where you’re also more vulnerable to disease.

And, in collaboration with celebrity holistic nutritionist, Elissa Goodman, Body Vibes just launched the Elissa Goodman Detox 10-Pack (5 Detox and 5 Hydrate) | Retail $68 https://www.shopbodyvibes.com/variety-packs/elissa-goodmans-detox-10-pack 

Hydrate: Bio-frequencies stabilize negative ions, balances PH, hydrates and aids absorption. Water helps circulates electrolytes which in turn transports glucose and amino acids in and out of cells.  Feel refreshed!  ‘

Detox: Detoxification frequencies help with reducing toxic substances in the body.  Natural frequencies of lemon, apple cider vinegar, cucumbers and watermelon.  Clean living!
