    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!

    The Dream Sequel

    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.

  • Restore your body with Detox Water

    Thinking about ways to restore your body? You have came to the right place. Trust me just because you do not know where to start does not mean that you should give up. Attempting to stay fit is not the easiest thing to do. There are so many ways you could attain that. In this post, I am going to talk about one of the ways to restore your body by using Detox Water.

    By the time you are done with your workout, you lose a lot of vitamins and electrolytes in your body. Therefore, it is important to hydrate afterwards and during your workout. What’s a better way to do it than consuming a natural and organic aloe vera water by Detox Water. You could equally drink water to hydrate, but Detox Water does more than that.

    Detox Water powered by ACTIValoe® aloe gel flakes and that contains electrolytes and vitamins like a pure aloe juice. It contains no artificial colors, flavors, and preservatives. It’s 15 calories per serving, so no need to worry about counting your calories!

    It’s a great way to end your intense workout on a good note. For me the best part is the flavor. Original is delicious, but Pinamint and Mangaloe are just heaven. When the water tastes this good, who would’t want to go to gym?

    Enough said, head over to Detox Water to add a new twist to your workout routine. Don’t forget to use my code ‘DSGNBYMA‘ for 25% of your order!

  • Spring Outlook

    Spring is ahead of us and thanks to global warming it looks like it’s coming sooner than we expected. In order to help you out, I put together a casual look for you to try after gym or any casual activity that you might be doing during this spring.

    The Windbreaker jacket I picked out is from Urban Outfitters. It’s super comfy and light. You won’t even feel like you are wearing a jacket. It’s definitely a spring material and a good after attire to keep you cool.

    Tank top is from Old Navy and it comes in various different colors. Recently just got on sale and now is only 7 dollars. Don’t miss out!

    Sweats are from H&M and they come in grey and white. If you want to brighten up your day, I would say go with white!

    The last, but not least are the shoes. They are from Urban Outfitters just like the Windbreaker jacket. They come in black and white. Depending on which color you choose for your sweats, I would suggest go the opposite so it won’t clash.

    Check them out below and get your favorites before spring hits here 😉

    There are just certain things in life that sometimes we underestimate or don’t think about it at all. Undergarment is one of them. Just because not everyone sees it does not mean that it needs to be left out. Its not exactly an outfit that it needs to be the main focus, but it would be a worthwhile to look over and make good choices.

    Speaking of choices, for this post I am going to give you a few different choices of underwear for various occasions or activities. Stick with the basics is totally fine, but there is nothing wrong with exploring other options. My first selection is mainly for gym and everyday activity. These boxers are generally super tight, stretchable, yet very comfy and soft.

    PERFORMANCE BOXERS


    This selection on the other hand is good for just casual days and times that one would mainly spend at home or in the office. There is no need to get super picky with these ones, but main thing that needs to be taken to consideration is the quality. If it’s comfortable and fits great, you hit the jackpot!

    TRUNKS & BRIEFS

    The last, but not least is for you to feel good about yourself. Doesn’t matter how bad is your bad or what’s going on in your life sometimes you just need to add some color into your life. In order to spice things up, I picked out a few colorful and patterned boxers below. Even just looking at them might make you happy 🙂

  • Valentine’s Day Gift Guide

For some it’s just another day when they get gifts or buy gifts and for others it’s the time of the year to celebrate the strong relationship that they have with someone special. That special someone could be anyone. For me, it’s my sister who has always been there for me and it does not matter if I am single or in a relationship she will always be my valentine.

    Who’s your valentine?

    FOR HER

    As much as I love getting gifts, I always wait for the last minute. If you are like me, don’t worry I got your back. Here is some ideas for you to pull last minute gift for her. I wanted to keep it classy, yet special because does not matter who is this girl in your life, she deserves to feel special at least for one day!

     

    FOR HIM

    This part is for guys. Just like girls they also deserve to feel appreciated and loved and what’s the better to show them some love than getting them a gift? Okay you could definitely show them how much you love them in other ways, but here is my advice. Check them out!

    Last, but not least don’t forget to tell them how much you love them. Don’t just assume that they know or they will understand when they get your gift. Make sure to tell them how much they mean to you. Don’t just tell them today, but all year around. Everyone deserves to feel appreciated and loved!

  • Men Care

    Back here with another post and this time I am focusing on men care. It is super important to feel refreshed and clean underneath your most stylish clothes that you are wearing. Don’t go overboard and spend too much money though, but it would be super helpful if you pay attention enough that you won’t ever need to worry about how you smell. You want to feel fully confident with your outfit and yourself!

    Thanks to Influenster, I got to test Dove Men+Care Invisible Fresh Dry Spray and I have to admit it is working. It dries your sweat really fast and the flowery smell last for a very long time. Even if you go to gym and work out, your shirt still smells like lavender.

    However, there is one downside of this product. Unlike other deodorants, Dove’s Dry Spray actually dries your sweat completely instead of mixing with it. Therefore it is slightly unhealthy, but if you are looking for deodorant that will help you feel refreshed and smell nice at all times, this certainly is the one!

  • Denim on denim

    Introducing you denim on denim in this post. I am very excited because I am showing you this style with my shorts. Yes, in the middle of January. Thanks to global warming this Thursday I got a chance to take off everything I was wearing. I meant most of the things I hated wearing like my coat, boots and stuff. Instead I wore my sneakers, light denim jacket and shorts.

    I linked everything I am wearing down below. Check them out and shop your favorite. My all time favorite is ‘Happy Socks‘ which is why I paired them with Lacoste sneakers to add some color to this look.
