Happy Monday!

Here are my picks this week.


Cat Footwear – Boots

This new footwear collection is great – reminds me of my younger years wearing colored construction boots. Time to revisit that! Its kind of difficult to pick a favorite color too. Maybe blue and red..or all!

Price: $130

Essentiel Elements – Shower Gel

Tried this twice, the smell is great! Its a strong rosemary/mint scent. I have to say that it does not lather up well at all, so that was a no for me. If you don’t mind a product that does not lather by all means please use it as a shower gel. However I thought to myself, it would make a great hand soap. I sat it on my bathroom counter and I have been using it as hand soap ever since. For a price of $19 I think that would be the last time I purchase it for ‘hand soap’.

Price: $19

Plant Brooklyn – Face Oil

Face Oil? OA? What the?! Its actually the same as moisturizer or serum. All you need is about 3 drops of this, rub it in and it absorbs super fast and doesn’t leave your face feeling sticky/oily. Plant Brooklyn says that this oil fights acne and reduces inflammation. I can say that reduces inflammation I saw that within the first hours of using it.

Here are some ingredients worth knowing about:
Sweet Almond Oil; Macadamia Nut Oil; Grapeseed Oil; Jojoba Oil, Sea Buckthorn Oil, Pomegranate Seed Oil; Essential Oils of Rosemary, Sweet Orange and Ginger; Vitamin E.

Price: $40

Mr. Natty – Famous Beard Elixir (beard oil)

No beard here but I still love using this beard oil on my stubble. One reason is because of the woodsy smell but the main reason is because it helps big time with ingrown hair. This product is in heavy rotation and I use it mostly for my neck, that where I get most ingrown hairs at. If you get ingrown hair you should check this out. I assume that you are using after shave products for that anyway but this is a little extra. Mens beard care 101!

Price: $14

Nick Graham – Tie

Perfect for back to school or the prep at heart. What I love about this tie is the striped tail. Cant really see here, but check it out on the site. I wore it once and showed both parts, took a break from the normal look. If there is an interesting detail..I like to show it.

Price: $55
