    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!

    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 😉

  • Men’s Essential: Underwear

    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 🙂
