Manly Manicure Monday with Sorbet MAN

Listen up gents – Sorbet don’t only favour the fairer sex, they think you deserve some grooming too and because of this they have launched their male-only grooming emporium. Think beards, think musky smells, think all things manly – they’ve got you covered.

Sorbet launched their very first man-porium in September 2014 in Sandton City and are now following suit with opening the next in the chain line – a store in Bedfordview at Village View Shopping Centre. Sorbet Man

They understand looking good is not always as easy as the woke-up-like-this that you guys pull off so well and sometimes need some added grooming. Don’t think of it as a salon, think of it as a way to accentuate your manly ways with an added touch of polished perfection. They do not want the treatments to be seen as flash but they want their guests to feel relaxed, not intimidated and invited in a discerning manner.

The treatments on offer range from facials for tip-top skin care, to hair colour treatments, massages and “Man Plan” packages including the flagship, The 19th Hole: haircut, hot towel shave and a manicure. All of their treatments include complimentary whiskey, espresso and WIFI.

Sorbet MAN stocks internationally renown brands like Dermalogica, Blue Beards, Redken and KST.

If Sorbet is good enough to keep the ladies in your life looking on point there is no reason why Sorbet cannot make you feel good about your skin, hair and overall well being.

For more information on Sorbet MAN, check out Sorbet’s website.

Ladies, you are welcome to spoil the men in your life easily; and no worries, you’re welcome gentleman! 😉

#HANDS DOWN – THIS IS THE BEST MAKEUP ARTIST IN THE WORLD 💋💄

Good Morning Pouter!

As you may or may not know, I love contouring and highlighting. Well, not so much highlighting, but definitely contouring.

I often share photos on our Facebook page showing how I look before and after.

There is one makeup artist and yes only ONE that perfects the whole contouring application. He inspires me with his before and after photos on a daily basis. One can only dream of being as good as he is, when it comes to drawing lines on women’s faces, transforming their “canvases” into works of living and breathing gorgeous art!

He is:

He is touring the world where people can attend his workshops. So if you’re lucky enough to go…. GO!

MY WEDDING DAY – SERVICE PROVIDERS – part 2, THE PHOTOGRAPHER

Hey there! So I hope you enjoyed my previous post on my wedding day about my wedding dress and where I got it. If not, please check it out wedding dress

Post 2, is all about the photographer. Christopher Munton. Actually, he isn’t a photographer, think of him as an artist.

I personally can’t stand cheesy wedding photos one sees these days. And sometimes it is the photographers that just are inexperienced. If you’re planning a wedding, I suggest you pay for a good photographer. Photos are what you end up with to remember the day forever. Not the shoes, not your perfume, or the amount of people you invited. So if you’re going to settle for a cheap photographer with a cliche portfolio, then that is what you’ll end up with…

The venue I chose sent me a list of suggested suppliers of photographers, musicians, makeup artists etc. Scrolling through the lists, Christopher’s work definitely stood out! It wasn’t normal wedding photos. It was art!

FAQS

So if you’re planning your own wedding and you’re in need of the best photographer, please contact Emily and or Christopher. You will not be disappointed! I must say, he is also such a great person! You feel totally comfortable with him. He captures the most wonderful moments without being all up in your face. Chilled and relaxed is how I felt. I feel that the mood of the photographer can set the mood of the bride as he is there while she is getting ready. So if he can relax you, you’ll be way more calm walking into the chapel. So this is a thank you to Christopher. Thank you for bring a brilliant artist.

Beaucience for Men – Product Review

Good Morning Poutlings,

I trust that you are doing well, staying warm and taking vitamins 🙂

Today i’ll be doing a little product review on some skincare products for men.

Let me start off by informing you that I am in no shape or form affiliated with the brand or it’s products.

I received two products from this brand to review and of course I’m not a Man so I had my better half play guinea pig for me. He has been using the products for a week more or less now and being half ginger and only 3/4 human I could immediately see a difference. But before i get into that let me tell you a bit more about the brand.

Logo

“Beaucience (pronounced bo-ci-ons) is a proudly South African professional skincare brand specifically focusing on using natural formulations and organic ingredients where possible. With the combination of the unique peptide ingredients proteasyl (derived from pea plants) and essential oils, the results is a kind yet direct approach to ageing for men and woman. Beaucience has been designed for the more environmental conscious user making sure that our carbon footprint is low by using where possible South African ingredients, environmental friendly packaging, recyclable glass and bio-degradable plastic.

What makes Beacuience unique?

  • Essential oils are used to lightly fragrance the product
  • No parabens – we use natural preservatives
  • Environmentally friendly
  • Manufactured in a Soil Association certified manufacturing
  • Not tested on Animals
  • Trials with the products done in South Africa on human subjects over a period of 6-8 weeks
  • Proudly South African brand
  • An exclusive male and female anti-ageing and hydrating home care range is available
  • An amenities range is available
  • A professional range for beauty salons are available
  • A retail range is available from pharmacies and health stores

So as I mentioned before I had my ginger viking make use of the products for a little over a week (aftershave balm and face wash) With him being a ginger and having VERY pale skin he has very sensitive skin and always ends up with a shaving rash I also forgot to mention that he has a very heavy metal beard (yes this too is red :P) With it being winter at the moment and the air being extremely dry we all tend to suffer from dry skin and he specifically has a really dry patch or rather rash within his beard, firstly because it does not get all the moisture and “air” it needs.

After using the products for two days we immediately noticed a difference in his skin texture and its elasticity (I would just like to add that both of us have a regular skin care routine with other products) Having a oily skin he generally has excessive oiliness and a shine but after making use of the products not only did he’s shine appear less apparent but the oil content in his skin also got more under control which also helped ease on the forming of papules and pastules. The rash within his beard has also become less of an irritation and more bearable, dry patches formed due to his facial hair has since vanished and become more moisturized leaving his skin softer and “younger” all over.

I would definitely recommend Beaucience to all men especially those with facial hair after seeing what it’s done for my viking with his.

Ridiculous Price Tag on a Stupid T-Shirt

Hi Pouters

Did you read about this custom t-shirt, the worlds “most expensive” t-shirt, made of crocodile skin? Take a deep breath, or many, because this is actually happening in the world.

stupid hermes t-shirt in question...

stupid hermes t-shirt in question…

How much would you spend on a t-shirt, realistically? I am talking about a t-shirt, something you pair with your jeans, or what you work out in, wear on casual day, wear for a walk, you know, a t-shirt…. Depending on the t-shirt itself and if it would guarantee that I would look completely drop dead gorgeous in it, at a push, I would probably spend up to R500… and that is even a lot. I’d much more likely to actually spend about 20% of that above mentioned price.

Now, think of how much money any of the men in your life would realistically spend on a tshirt? R350 maximum? Well, I can only speak for the men that I know in my life and well, R350 is pushing the boundary ever so slightly, but you know, desperate times call for desperate measures.

Hermes is already known for carrying a plain white t-shirt for $345, roughly R3,277.50, but the latest item in its invetory is simply just cold blooded, according to most opinions on the social media. I tend to agree.

Hermes have designed a croc-leather look t-shirt for menswear Spring/Summer that is retailing at a staggering price of $91,500, roughly R869,20.00 and it is now considered to be the most expensive t-shirt in the world. That price is apparently also missing retail tax of approximately $8,000, so the approximate price of this garment is: R950,000!!! price tag on stupid hermes shirt

The picture of the price tag clearly shows the $91,500 number. Made of crocodile this t-shirt looks absolutely horrendous!! Who wants a leather-y like freaking t-shirt??? Imagine how a man would sweat in that. Actually, any man who wanted to and/or elected to wear this deserves to actually sweat their balls off….

It’s not the first time that Hermes has stunned the world with a whopping price tag. Last year the brand presented a $2 million, roughly R19,000,000, Kelly bag version encrusted with diamonds although too small to hold anything and even earlier there was a red croc leather Birkin bag with white gold and diamond hardware was acutioned at $203,150, roughly, R1,929,925.

Despite the fact that a living creature had to die in vain in order for this t-shirt to be made, which is a whole different debate entirely, with less money I think I could buy my own crocodile and get a high end tailor to make a shirt of a similar nature.

This “fashion” is absolutely ridiculous. I shudder to think what is going to be the next thing to “top” this…

What do you think about this shirt, and its price tag?
