Three Tips for DIY Makeover

Three Tips for DIY Makeover

You have never been much good at DIY, have you? You’ve never been any good with your hands, and you’ve never really liked getting your clothes dirty, which has meant you’ve not made any home improvements in the past ten years. Y ou’ve always been more of a ‘sit back and let nature take it’s course’ kind of guy, which is why that shelf still isn’t up, three years after the missus asked you to do it. If you sit back any further, you’ll be vertical and then you won’t even be able to partake in your favourite pass time: watching the daytime and evening gameshows. And if you let nature take it’s course anymore, you’re going to look like a lumberjack by the end of the month, what with the way your hair has been allowed to grow as of late. But fear not, there are in fact ways in which you can sort your own makeover out, without even needing to leave the house. DIY makeovers may sound like a lot of work, but it beats having to go out to the barbers and spending money, right? Firstly, you are going to have to deal with that hair: it’s become out of control and needs to go. You could invest in the Wall Professional 5-Star Magic Clip, found in the Manly Matters’ selection, and before you know it you’ll be trimming your own hair to a professional standard, in your own bathroom. And while you’re at it, you can get rid of the beard and moustache that you have been meaning to trim for the past two...

Casual and Stylish: Vital Tips for Casual Dressers

Even though it seems pretty simple, a lot of men still seem to get casual clothing wrong. Of course, maybe they’re happy with how they look. If it works out for you, great! But if you’re feeling a bit stuck about your own casual wear? Then check out this essential guide. Don’t be afraid to experiment People often have a very strict image in their head when they think about casual clothing. This seems odd, considering the clothing is supposed to be quite, y’know, casual. Still, people often think about simple shirts and blue jeans. Simple is effective, of course. But there’s a difference between simple and bland! A graphic t-shirt underneath a flannel shirt is a great example of experimentation. Get the colors right and you’ll have a great mix of simple and fun. Speaking of color… Color makes a great focal point Don’t be tempted to banish bright colors from your casual wardrobe once and for all. Sure, you may think that going too bright in too many places is a disaster. And you may be right. But a nice, bold color can complement the more subtle elements of your outfit really well. One bright color among more neutral hues makes for a great focal point for your wardrobe. See what color suits your look best! It needs to fit! If you wear something that’s way too big for you, then it’s going to look like you want to look too casual. Going for the overly baggy look rarely works. It tends to make you look oddly-shaped!

Are You A Man’s Man? Let’s Find Out

Are You A Man’s Man? Let’s Find Out

Okay before we get into this, let’s make sure you know what a man’s man is. A man’s man is essentially a guy that all the other males look up to. He’s the alpha male if you will, the leader of the pack and that certainly comes with a lot of advantages. Studies have shown that most women are naturally attracted to this alpha male for a variety of reasons. Evolutionary tendencies play a part here. Don’t forget that in the past women were looking for a man who could protect them and produce strong offspring. That’s obviously not what all women are looking for today, but those needs are still present as ghosts of their desires. So, let’s look at the traits of the man’s man and see if you fit the bill. The Ultimate Specimen It’s not a requirement for a man’s man to be the perfect physical specimen but it is more likely. For instance, you may not need to have a full head of hair to be a man’s man. After all Jason Statham, boyfriend of fashion model Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and all around action star is certainly a man’s man. He’s also quickly losing all his hair. T herefore, you can afford to have one or two physical flaws. You just need to make sure that the rest of your physique is virtually perfect. Money To Burn If you constantly worry and fret about money and finances, we’re afraid you’re not a man’s man. These guys have money to burn because they earn massive amounts through their career or however they earn it. Either way,...

First Impressions From A Trio of Ladies – What Can You Learn About Approaching Women?

When it comes to meeting women, first impressions count. You’ve probably heard the phrase “you don’t get a second chance to make a first impression”, and with dating, it’s never been so appropriate. You do it as well, of course. Most of us know very quickly whether or not we are attracted to someone, though we couldn’t say why it is. If you’re struggling to get past the initial stages with the object of your affection, it’s worth examining what’s happening. Of course, there is no easy answer, no perfect guide. Every woman is different and has varying things they consider important. This further complicates the matter, meaning you can never quite be sure what she’s noticing - so is there any way to get an idea? I asked three women about their first impressions of the most recent guy they continued a relationship (however brief) with. You should begin to see a pattern emerge. Aesthetics - Did You Notice What He Was Wearing? Sophia, 28: “Yes, but only vaguely. It was a band shirt, jeans and a pair of Jordan 11s. I thought he looked relaxed and confident in his appearance, without looking scruffy.” Alexandria, 31: “He was wearing a standard business suit and looked smart and fashionable.” Maria, 23: “I think it’s good that I didn’t really! I would have noticed if he looked bad I think, but I was too focused on him as a person to notice much. I did once meet someone who tried it on with me, and his shirt was clearly dirty - I declined that date.” What You Can Take From...
