Coming Back From Your Extended Home Vacation

I don’t like leaving the house very often. It’s not like I’m a recluse or afraid of the outdoors or anything like that just in case you were imagining something like a basement dweller for your mental image of me. I enjoy meeting new people and experiencing new things. I guess the more appropriate statement to make isn’t that “I dislike leaving the house” it’s more accurate to state that “I prefer the comfort of my own home.” Given that we live in the 21st century my specific preferences are in luck.

I sometimes will have a couple of days where I have the luxury of not having to leave the house and the internet allows for all my needs to be taken care of. I’ll entertain myself by watching a few shows on the internet maybe play a game or two online and when I get hungry I’ve got the cuisine of different countries at my fingertips (though pizza seems to win more often than not). This is all well and good but the issue that tends to come up is when I have to deal with the aftermath of my little exit from society. Now the single biggest issue I would come across was the whole lost in the wilderness look that I tend to start sporting by the end of everything. Now for me this all comes down to a bit of a trim and a good long washing of the hair and the beard but for a lot of you this probably comes down to using a razor and being done with it. I want more guys to try out the bearded look but I know that a lot of you out there are either afraid the bearded look isn’t for you or you’re afraid of the responsibility that keeping a beard might entail.


So if you’re being turned away by latter issue I mentioned you might be wanting to include another purchase for your re-entry into society. Beard stuff is a bit more complicated than your average bottle of shampoo and some soap that I know we’re all (hopefully) familiar with so I understand the hesitation. What do I buy? What do I need? Is there a difference if I buy from a bunch of different brands and all I can say about those questions is that you’d be better off just going out and buying the best beard grooming kit, and I know that best is a matter of opinion but hey this is my blog and so my opinion gets to be featured.

How technology is affecting the men’s grooming industry

Millenials are probably the generation that gets the most criticism as of now for a multitude of reasons some valid and some invalid. Whatever your opinion on millennials may be you have to admit they are the most influential generation so far in terms of industries. They are at the age where majority of them are capable and do the majority of their shopping themselves. Understanding this fact means that if you want to succeed with your business ventures you’ll need to take their existence into account.

In the modern world understanding of the importance of technology is not something to be underestimated. In just a few short decades the men’s grooming industry has grown exponentially in size thanks in no small part to the social media generation. The idea of paying attention to your looks is nothing new for the most part but as an industry the drive to look good has never greater on men than it is now. With the readily available means of sharing your everyday life on social media it means having to look your best. Now the definition of what makes a guy attractive is also expanding. The thought of buying beauty products such as moisturizers and the like might have caused people to second guess their decision back in the day but now it’s something that no one would even bat an eyelash at. It’s not limited to one type of look as mentioned earlier you could go for the pretty boy look or you could go for the rugged sexy lumberjack vibe or some hybrid combination of the two, it all really comes down to personal preference.

Different products and different treatments exist for people going for different looks and that means that with the increase in demand there is an increase in opportunities. A simple google search for premium beard oil will probably yield you dozens of results of products available in your general area. And those products could be at your local store or online shopping exclusives, the range is vast. With this coming wave of generation Z perhaps we can look to millenials and the effect they’ve had on the marketplace and find that revolutionary idea that sends men’s grooming or any other market you can think of into its next stage. And isn’t it funny that when that idea is found a decade or so from then it will seem to the people at that time as though it made perfect sense and they’ll wonder why no one thought of it sooner.

Cooking up a storm

Feedback for the blog thus far has been fantastic.

I’ve been constantly beaming over the past few weeks. I want to keep the good momentum going so more will be posted shortly.

I’ve been trying to decide what to write about recently – hopefully I’ll figure it out before too long and the next post will be up.

Taking Advantage of Technological Advancements

Technology is constantly moving in a forward direction and so many aspects of life are affected by this. One of them being media – there’s no question about that. We are directly experiencing this growth and expansion in our daily lives, just like those who lived few decades ago. They witnessed how DVD’s arrived replacing video cassettes. In fact, nowadays this technology is also outdated – Most people tend to stream media on their phones, tablets or laptops!

Technology has brought advancement to the health industry, cosmetic industries and others –  they are too many to mention. Better and improved technology has provided us with various ways to learn, work and relate to each other.

In many aspects, it’s hard to argue that technology hasn’t had a massive impact and affected so many people and places in a positive way. Despite this there are still some saying that technology decreases the need for manpower in many industries, which may be the reason why the number of unemployed people is increasing in some countries.

Personally, I don’t think technological advancement is the root cause of the high unemployment rate in some countries. In many ways it helps us create new jobs, especially through the use of the internet. Online jobs are widely available and remote workers are in high demand nowadays.

For me, It is just a matter of how you deal with technology and how you choose to use it for your own good. I believe we should be grateful we have it in our time. We should take advantage of it in a positive way. Try to think “what would be the use of advanced technology if we cannot even use it for our own advancement or self-improvement?” Agree?

Cosmetics is one specific area that is highly affected by breakthroughs in technology. I tend to take advantage of this by using a plethora of new and high-quality products to pamper my skin and look good.

Actually, I even ended up taking advantage of advanced cosmetics by purchasing a gift for my brother. I gave him a high-quality balm for his beard, and he really liked it.

All I am saying is that, we just have to embrace these advancements and make good use of them. Stop blaming technology for what you are right now. We are humans, we survived before technology, but it’s also not going away – technology still exists now without the brilliant minds that discovered and developed it.

Still thinking about new topics!

Hi readers!

Quickly I wanted to remind you that I posted something new last week. If you’ve read it already, I really hope you enjoyed doing so!

If you haven’t read it yet i’d be really appreciative if you took a moment to check it out.

In terms of my next post, I’m still trying to decide what to write about!

Hoping I will be able post it up this week!

Technological Advancements and their effects on humanity

Technological advancement is an incredible ongoing phenomenon that affects not only people but also every living and non-living thing on the planet.

They say Technology is destroying humanity. Do you really agree with this? Do you think as technology gets better, our society gets worse? Well, I strongly disagree with this.

I think technology is not destroying us; it exists to let us experience the highest possible quality of life available to us right now – one which is forever getting better and better. It simplifies the things we do like communicating with each other, makes our jobs easier, saves time and increases our productivity to boot.  It helps improve our healthcare industry and education, and many other positive effects can be seen in our modern generation. Despite the fact that it helps us so much, there are still people saying that it is destroying us.

In my opinion, the problem is the people who control it/are involved in it, and not the technology itself. Unfortunately, some people rely too much on technology that they become incredibly lazy. Sadly for them, this prevents them from learning new things and growing as a person.

Let’s take the example of computer games. Even the first generation games that were released around 30 years ago, were so highly addictive that often the people who played them lost the time they needed to take good care of their appearance. This is still the case today, but the difference is nowadays there are many more products available to us that we can use quickly and easily that greatly help us with our general appearance.

One such product is called mustache wax. For those that have mustaches, this the perfect little item that helps you quickly get yours in check with incredible ease. I’ve personally used the one mentioned and can tell you now that it’s great!

Technology never ceases to fascinate me.

Technology really is fascinating isn’t it? It’s advancement affects so many different areas of our life. When any mentions technology, people seem to instantly think about computers and smartphones. What a lot of people don’t realise is that it affects so many other industries too, like the food and beauty industries just to name a few.

I want to spend the next few posts exploring some of these different areas. I hope you like my work!

How this fast-paced world is affecting our skin

The western world certainly is changing isn’t it. Do you remember what is was like 20-30 years ago. Where every 3-5 years there would be some sort of technological advancement or eureka moment.

Going back earlier than that it would be once every 10 years. Nowadays though it seems like every month there is something new to get excited about.

One key advancement is the internet. Over the past 5 years especially I’ve noticed that we’ve all become a lot more connected and addicted to our smartphones, laptops and iPads.

This addiction has naturally led us to staying up later and later each night, promising ourselves that we’ll only watch one more episode on Netflix before we go to bed. 3 hours later you finally turn out the light!

Sadly this is the case with so many people nowadays. This lack of sleep is leading to some serious health problems, especially in the youth of today. Who would have guessed that advancing technology could actually have a negative effect on our health and livelihood.

It’s not only the younger generation that are being affected. People like myself often fall into this trap too. As well as losing sleep, I’ve also found myself looking much more wrinkly and old than I think I should be.

staying up late is bad for your skin

If you’re anything like me, you’ve probably tried your best to kick your about and turn in earlier each night. But like me, you’ll probably know that this is easier said than done.

I’ve decided to take a different course of action to solving this problem. Knowing that actively fighting back against my ever increasing wrinkles and bags under my eyes would be no easy task, I decided to enlist the help of a good friend who has gone through similar problems in the past.

Her recommendation was to try some different under treatment products. One such suggestion was an aloe vera eye gel. She told me it had a really cooling effect (especially if you kept it in the fridge) and really helped combat all the nastiness under her eyes.

Her advice was sound to say the least. My eyes have had a wonderful transformation since using the product. Now I can have the best of both worlds – I can stay up late and not have my face pay the price. Win!

Incipient Human Technology

The world is changing at such a rapid rate. I really feel as if we’re at key moment in our technological advancement. That point in an exponential graph where things really start to get out of hand!

I want to use my new blog to unleash my thoughts on how the human race is moving with the times – documenting it’s successes and it’s failures. I hope you’ll join on this exciting journey!
