    Don't Look Back

    Don’t look back, you are not going that way. Heard that one before?! I am sure every one of us at one point look back and analyze how things turned out. There are some things that we are extremely proud of and some thing that we just do not want to remember. That’s very common considering we are not perfect and only way to get better is to learn from our mistakes. Here are a few things to remember when you look back at things!

    •  IT’S A TEST.

      It does not matter how many times you blame yourself for what you did or what you should have done, there is no way you could change things. Remember nothing is permanent in life. Everything changes and evolves just like you!

    • IT’S A HISTORY.

      Remember the boring history class you had to take in order to graduate from high school, think of your past like that. It’s there for you to remember and build something from it or just totally forget about it. I personally chose to forget, but everyone has different ways of connecting or disconnecting their past to current and future events.

    • IT’S A LIFE LESSON.

      Yes, you are human and you make mistakes, but that does not mean you can keep making the same mistake over and over. You would be wasting your life. When you are making a decision next time, think about what you did before and what happened. I am going to sound like a lawyer when I say this, but remember that there is always a loophole even when things seem impossible at first!

    •  IT’S A MEMORY.

      Trust me I get it, this is your past and you did things that made you who you are today, but remember its over now. You are not living in that moment anymore. You are in this moment and every single minute you think about past is dragging you down. Not here to tell you to erase your past, but here to tell you to just live in the moment and see what life may bring!

    Just like everything in our lives even our shopping experiences have changed a lot over the years. Before, we actually had to physically be in a store in order to buy something, but nowadays everything is online. We can buy anything we want with just a few clicks and  it would be in our door steps in a couple of days. How cool is that?

    Definitely what I just summarized above is not really anything new, but what I am going to say next is something that most of us will agree on. The thing is shopping online is almost like finding a needle in a haystack. There are just so many options and brands to choose from. Therefore, it could be time consuming and most certainly overwhelming. I partnered with Tophatter to help you guys out with this dilemma!

    There are a lot of things that we pay highly attention to in our lives, but there are also things that we pretty much don’t think about. Grooming is one of those things. We always try to give more attention, but just one thing after another it is left behind along with other things that we said we would do like traveling around the world or cutting sweets from our diet.

    Okay, let’s be serious for a second. What I said in the beginning has some truth to it. Although I am probably the last person to give advice about grooming, I have came across  Anthony’s Skin Care products that completely changed my grooming habits and I am hoping that it would change yours too.

    Their Shave Cream is like pure magic. It cools your skin and very easy to spread around your face. It makes your beard hair super soft, you won’t even know if you are shaving or not. Once you are done, use Ingrown Hair Treatment and After Shave Balm to hydrate and nourish your sensitive skin.

    Try their Blue Sea Kelp Body Scrub and Invigorating Rush Hair and Body Wash if you get a chance. They smell amazing and you will feel like you are taking a stroll in the ocean. Check out some of their grooming items below and let me know what you think!

    Life is not always just cupcakes and rainbows, sometimes it’s just complicated. I wish I could tell you that things are always going to be okay, but I would be lying. So I hope this short animation that I made with Adobe After Effects and Adobe Sketch would cheer you up and hopefully keep you going.

    Remember nothing comes easy and the things that come easy probably not worth your time. Good things just take time. Life is all about timing. Just let your light shine so bright that nothing else comes in your way and stops you from what you are doing. After all it is all about the journey, enjoy every moment of it!

    We all have been there. Every day we want our hair to look as flawless as it was when we got out from the barber shop or salon. Unfortunately, we need to accept the reality that most of the time our hair is not going to look great if we do not take care of it.

    After my swimming practices, my hair always got some type of way due to chlorine. It’s dry most of the time, but chlorine just made it worse. Recently I have discovered a new solution: Finesse Haircare.  It restores the hair and makes it stronger and stronger every use. It is a perfect match for dry, coarse or damaged hair.

    Finesse contains active proteins to make the hair visibly softer, silky smooth and most importantly easy to style for any occasions or for great selfies. Check out the little carousel below to find the perfect match for your hair type!

    There are a lot of things that we have control over in our lives. We can control how we eat, how we dress and how we speak, but when it comes to time we have no control. Sometimes it flies so fast without us realizing it and sometimes it feels like we are living our lives in slow motion.

    We manage our time with our smartphones and watches. Personally, I never realized watch is something that I would use on a daily basis since I am on my phone most of the time. It just never seemed such an important accessory to me until I discovered Jord. I fell in love with this cool watch as soon as I wore it on my wrist.

    It has a very classic feel to it, yet it is very modern. Natural Olive and Acacia wooden band and a sapphire crystal glass complete this unique watch. Clasp with push buttons make it so easy to put it on and the watch looks super elegant from any angle. Does not matter what you are pairing it up with, it is a great accessory to have and a perfect timepiece to wear for any occasions.

    Jord watches are completely automatic. They require no battery and power reserve for 36 hours. Most importantly they are splash proof, so no need to worry when you wash your hands. Check these unique wood watches from this link and don’t forget to sign up for my giveaway worth $100!

    Dreams are the sweetest things in life. For some it’s going to college or getting a new job, but for others it is a lifetime happiness and health. This 10 seconds long clip is precisely trying to portray this concept; a concept of what dreams are made of.

    It portrays the stages of building an idea of a dream. In the first stage the letters come together to portray the structure of the dream. I made the ‘dream’ typography by using Adobe Sketch on my iPhone.

    The following portrays the stages of how one dream grows. First it is just an idea then idea becomes a concept then concept eventually leads to a reality.

    In order to portray these various stages, I added a few effects around the text with Adobe After Effects. First effect I used was a stroke which followed the path I drew on top of the word. In order to make it dreamlike, I kept the colors neon with another effect Colorama. Lastly, I added a card wipe effect to make a smooth transition between the colors.
