It might not be the most “manly” thing to discuss moisturizer, but the reality is that most mornings, if you are clean shaven, you will be running a sharp blade across your face that has been lying around in a bathroom, with all sorts of bacteria lurking under the surface… and as a result, us men need to take care of our skin – particularly when shaving.  Nobody likes the appearance caused by a shaving rash or ingrown hairs.  If you suffer from razor burn, also known as a shaving rash, you might want to check out this article: razor burn

 

The good news is that we’ve come leaps and bounds from the archaic view that boys don’t cry and it’s girly to moisturise – indeed, we are now encouraged to take care of our skin, even to the point of applying concealer to cover our tired eyes; but taking care of our skin is nothing new.  Think of the Turkish Shave experience, one of the manliest and original of all male grooming activities; where a lot of care is taken with regard to the skin, from hot towels that open up the pores to the alcohol splattered on your face to close your pores and protect from infection.

 1. USE A GOOD RAZOR

The first thing you need to consider is the razor you’re using.  In part, this comes down to the quality of the razor, and a great recommendation to check out https://luxuryshavingrazors.com/safety-razor/muhle-r89-review/  which is particularly good for sensitive skin.  However, it’s not just about the razor quality, it’s about how well used the razor blade itself is.  You don’t want to be hanging onto your old razor like a long lost love – you want it to glide across the surface of your skin, rather than tug at each follicle, as it grinds across your face.  The top tip, here, is to invest in a decent razor and then replenish the blades before they start tugging due to the bluntness that comes with natural wear and tear.


2. USE A DECENT LUBRICANT

There are many shaving gels, foams and creams out there.  The majority of people simply pick the one that smells the nicest, is on special offer, or in reaction to an aspirational advertising campaign… but just like picking out a meal, you want to check out the ingredients on the back – ideally, you want to find something with mostly natural ingredients.


3. MOISTURIZE

The final step is to moisturize.  Ideally, with a natural anti-inflammatory such as aloe vera, coconut oil or Baldwin.  Again, most people get which one smells the best but look to the ingredients – you want to avoid anything with numbers as this can be a harsh chemical that will actually aggravate the skin, but is full of natural ingredients.  In fact, one of the simplest ways to moisturize is to put some raw organic coconut oil on your face after you’ve shaved (and if you want brownie points before you go to sleep too).

Saturday Night Lights!

Sometimes we work so hard that all we want to do is have a chilled Saturday night at home, have some drinks at your place, watch TV and relax before you go to sleep. But, sometimes Saturday nights alone can be boring, here are a few ways to get your Saturday nights started the right way.

 

Celebrate Yourself

There’s nothing more interesting than having a party at home by yourself. In fact, you know all the people that are attending, and you like them all! So get a few beers, put some good music on, and put your feet up! 

Get Laughing

At times funds may be too low for a comedy club, so why don’t you put on some Comedy Central, or your favorite comedian’s DVD and have a comedy club from the comfort of your home! If that DVD doesn’t do it for you, you can have a good look online for some fantastic sports related pranks, there also some top foosball memes, and even something like Impractical Jokers is funny enough to take your mind off the woes of the week.

 

Cook!

Sometimes there’s nothing more relaxing than buying a few of your favorite ingredients, putting the radio on, opening a bottle of wine and cooking your favorite meal. Some people find the cooking is too much of a stressful task, but if you get it right, and the food is tasty, it’s worth the effort, and if it’s a dish you know very well, you can go at your own pace and most importantly it’s cost effective.

Online Shopping

You’ve had a long week, so treat yourself to some of your favorite clothes you’ve been spying on. There’s nothing quite like doing late night online browsing with a few drinks and some great tunes. And so what if you buy a few things you regret, just send them back!

 

Get Stuck Into A Book

Saturday night doesn’t have to be about going out, or consuming vast quantities of your favorite beverage, why don’t you just sit back, relax, and finally get stuck into that book you meant to read? You might want to think about opening your mind to a new novel or get into something supremely dense like a Don DeLillo tome.

 

Have The Guys Round

If you don’t like the idea of spending Friday night by yourself, then why don’t you have a few other guys around to your place, get a few beers, some snacks and either watch a movie or, god forbid, talk? If you’ve all had a tough week, you can benefit from decompressing and having a good laugh with the guys.

Sleep

Yes, if it’s been a bad week, you may want to just get your head on your pillows and say goodbye to this week. After all, tomorrow is Sunday, and you’ve got a whole day to get yourself in a good mood. Think about what you want to do tomorrow, so you don’t dwell on the fact that you’ve had a bad week. After a good night’s sleep, you’ll feel like a new person.

Upgrade Your Place To Escape

Everyone needs space in their home to escape, relax, and unwind. Your career, relationship, and family will be top of your priority list. However, things can always get hectic, especially around the holidays. Therefore, a room, or structure that’s just for you, is the perfect way to clear your head or focus on something else for an hour or two. A man cave doesn’t need to be and dated concept; you can create an interior that’s full of everything you need to take some time out and give it a stylish and personality-filled edge. If you’ve got any spare time over the festive period; you could take some time and make an effort to plan a space that’s going to make your new year that bit better. Perhaps you already have a room or an outdoor structure; this is the ideal chance to utilize it and change it from somewhere to store old boxes, to somewhere you’ll want to spend time.

It might be a hobby you have that your partner or family have no interest in, a pastime that helps you to refocus and recharge, or you need a place to store and utilize items you use for fun and leisure. Organizing and planning a few things now will ensure that you can head into 2018 feeling like you’ve got somewhere that enhances and enriches your current lifestyle, and you can be the man you want to be. There’ll be the potential to invite your friend over to enjoy hanging out too; nobody is saying you have to be alone the whole time. The following are some tips, inspiration, and ideas for guys who feel like getting their interior design hat on and planning a space that will suit their needs and their style.

A Place To Build And Construct

 

If your interests lie in carpentry, art, and sculpture, or anything that requires manual and technical work (and enough room); your interior can become a studio space. Forget the idea that you have to be cooped up in a tiny shed down the bottom of your garden. You can embrace your indoor or outdoor interior and create a stylish studio, full of all your equipment and tools. With the holidays just around the corner; now would be the perfect time to ask for gifts that will help to fill your place with all you need. If you’re into construction; a new toolbox could be an ideal gift to find under the tree. Make sure that you have all the information you need when choosing a toolbox

And can point your partner, in the right direction. Make sure you have a smooth and sturdy countertop space; you can utilize any walls for storage, and make a feature out of your equipment.

Taking as much pride in the items you use to create things as you do in the creations themselves will ensure that your man space always has a high-end feel. Invest in a comfortable and adjustable stool so that you’re not bent over your worktop for hours. Great lighting is essential if you’re going to spend much of your evening time in there, and utilize the daylight with large windows, or putting your desk or countertop next to your source of sunlight. If you are using an outside structure; you’ll need to figure out how to get a power source out there safely and effectively so that you can light and heat the environment, and utilize any power tools, equipment, and machinery. Add a sound system or T.V so that the mood is set for your time in there; if you’re sawing or sanding for a few hours, you’ll need your music to guide you through.

 

A Space To Play

 

If the last thing that you feel like doing in the evening after a long day at work or during your weekend hours is manual work and construction; your personal space could be focused more on the leisure side of things. You could be into gaming or comic books; if so, it’s time to set up the ultimate room for you to settle down and get stuck into your favorite hobbies and pastimes. Gamers will need a big screen and a comfortable chair. You can add interior style to space with clever storage for your games, decent lighting, and the touches that will ensure you have a great time in there. Mini-fridges can house that cold beer you deserve on a Friday night, and you can have a cupboard containing snacks.

 

If you’re into comics, records, memorabilia, or any other collections; it’s worth looking into bespoke shelving and storage options. You’ll want to display your items so that you can enjoy them as much as possible without the risk of damage. You also need to consider the right lighting for space; research into how to light your shelving and collectibles so that they reach their potential in your room. If you’re into photography and design; create walls with an impact so that your favorite pieces can be the pride of a place, and everyone can see them as you sit and enjoy music, having a beer, or playing cards together. If the room is aimed to create an environment where you can host games night; make sure that you have enough seating and surface space so that everyone remains comfortable. Your interior design touches will make all the difference to how you and your guests feel in the room; making it less man cave and more house goals.

We all enter different stages of development during our lives. The turmoil of one year can lead to the next, and prevent us from truly expressing our goals. If this continues for long enough, you might even forget the reason for your intention in the first place. This can be a dangerous place to occupy because as the years pass on, you can become familiar with losing instead of winning. If you’re to be happy and comfortable with yourself, however, you choose to express that, you might need to go back to the drawing board and develop a more wholesome way of experiencing your life.

 

Life difficulties are nothing new. In fact, they can inform and help your future personality in a big, boosted and positive way. We all must go through trials and tribulations, they help define us. However, the lingering effect of difficulty will only hurt if it leaves us bent out of shape. It’s our job to rectify ourselves because there’s nothing more powerful than a person who is able to overcome their personal challenges and move onto something new.

 

The new year is arriving and with that the potential for a completely new story to be crafted. A common phrase you often hear from people who have experienced difficulty and come out the other side is that ‘it made me who I am.’ This is the power of restoring your initial pride and achievement desires; it retroactively helps you define the struggle you once experienced, and be grateful for the process.

Figure Out What’s Important To You

You need a plan, or you’ll likely end up falling into someone else’s. You should never feel guilty about developing your aims, your goals and your life in a direction you most cherish. In fact, without a plan, life can become wishy-washy and unfulfilled. For this reason, becoming a better you requires discipline in planning. Note down everything important to you, from your wants, your needs, your loves and who you hope to impact with this motivational effort.

 

It could be that you have a son or daughter you wish to provide for more completely. It could be that your business idea you know could be a hit is sat in the cobwebs of your mind, when it should be out there making you and your family money. It could be that your body is weak, frail and flabby from lack of exercise, and you’re simply sick of feeling weak all the time. No matter if your motivation is to be successful in your career, social health or physical well being (preferably it’ll be all three,) defining a goal helps you go for it. Plan realistically, on a day by day and week by week basis exactly how you can utilize your free time to achieve that you truly need to achieve.

Another amazing way to facilitate progress, especially if you haven’t had much success with this in the past, is to use the carrot and punishment method. List everything you hope to achieve, and everything you’d do if you treat yourself as someone you loved. Write your perspective on how great life could be if you kept this up for five years. Then, write down all of your vices, and how life could look if you indulged in them for the next five years. This will generate a ‘heaven’ and ‘hell’ scenario in your mind, something to run to and run away from. This helps progress more than any other because both positive and negative sides of your motivation are contributing to the same goal you are hoping to achieve.

 

Get To The Gym

 

Your gym workouts are important to get right. They help you look good and become healthier yes, but they work on a much deeper level than that too. Working out in the morning a few days a week helps you get over that initial hump of a challenge. This can translate into confidence, sharpness and perspective during your day. The added difficulty of a morning workout can also help your mind focus on something other than your life issues, or achievements you need to perfect.

 

One of the best things about heading to the gym, particular weightlifting, is that you aren’t able to fool it. While you may be able to convince yourself that your plans are flexible because you feel lethargic today, or you have to head to the bar for a good social life, heading to the gym sheds all illusions. A 200lb bar squat will always be a 200lb bar squat, and no amount of negotiation will change the effort it takes to lift it. This helps put you in that ‘no-BS’ mode which is intrinsically important to keep if you’re to achieve anything in this life.

 

The gym is much more than a physical remedy. It can be a spiritual training tool if you focus on it right, and optimize all progress around it. If nothing else, setting yourself in a solid routine aside from your job will help you manage your free time to a much better degree. The energy you receive from getting in shape will fuel all of your exploits from now on, to the point where you’ll question how you lived without it.

Equip Yourself

 

To take care of both of these previous tidbits of advice, you’ll need to equip yourself well. Purchase stationary and a yearly planner. A diary will help you track your progress from all avenues of your goals. Make a ‘tracker wall’ which details your progress, your plans, your appointments and your need to celebrate success.

Purchase more suitable gym attire, ones which help you feel like a powerful beast when working out and placing down the revolutionary effort you are lucky enough to express. If distracting people impede your progress and you no longer need their toxicity, change your phone number, temporarily suspend your Facebook and social media accounts for clarity, and focus on your goals. This ‘cocoon’ mode can help any man with the singular focus it takes to become the person they want to be.

 

Before long, and in a matter of months, you are likely to experience a resurgence in your motivation, happiness, and pride. The best part of it all? It will all be down to you.

Is your hair as important to you as your clothing? Do you want to ensure that you never have another bad hair day again? You need to get serious about looking after your hair. Here are a few things that will help you look like you’ve just stepped out of a hair product commercial at all times (well most of the time)…

 

Get a Good Haircut

 

I can’t tell you exactly what kind of haircut to get because that depends on a lot on personal taste and what will suit your face and style, but having a good haircut is the first step to healthy, great looking hair. That means you should go to the best barber you can afford and get good advice, a great cut, and a fantastic experience.

Pat It

 

The best way to dry your hair, whether you have locks, a high fade or long rocker locks, is by patting it gently. If you rub it harshly with a towel, that will lead to damage, tangles, and breakages, and if you use a hairdryer, then that will also cause damage too.

 

When you get out of the shower, shake your head to get rid of any excess water, then pat your hair slowly (and gently) in the direction of growth. If you have locks, then you’ll want to squeeze the excess moisture out of them before patting. It might not be quite as convenient, taking a bit longer to dry, but it will ensure that your hair looks as good as the rest of you.

Warm Water Only

While we’re talking about washing your hair, it is never a good idea to use really hot water during the process. It might feel fantastic to have a waterfall of hot water falling over your scalp, but it will get rid of too many of your scalp’s essential oils, which could dry your hair out and make it frizzy.

 

Keep Chemicals to a Minimum

 

It can be tempting to put lots of chemicals on your hair, particularly if it is unruly, frizzy and out of control, but the more chemical treatments your hair undergoes, the more dull and damaged your hair will become, not only from the chemicals working on your hair but also due to the residual build-up that gets left behind.

High-Quality Shampoo and Conditioner is Essential

 

If you want a healthy head of hair, then you’re going to have to spring for the better shampoo and conditioner – the kind that really does cleanse your hair and add more moisture to it. That’s the only way to get your hair shiny and healthy looking in the long term.

 

Feed Your Head

 

If you’re sporting dreads, then it’s also important to roll them and feed them with a small amount of lock gel on a regular basis. This will help them to keep their shape and retain more moisture so that they look as healthy as it is possible to look.

 

Brush Less Often

 

When it comes to brushing your hair, less is more. Obviously, you want to brush it often enough to keep it tangle free, and you want to ensure that you don’t go out looking like you’ve slept in a bush all night, but try to brush only when necessary.

On the subject of brushing, you should never brush your hair when wet, because it is more likely to break. You should also ensure that you’re either using a wide-toothed comb or a detangler – both of which are gentler on the hair than other kinds of brushes.

 

Eat a Healthy Diet

In many ways, your hair is only as healthy as the rest of your body, which is why, if you want it to look good, you need to treat your body more like a temple and less like a slum. Try to up your intake of water, fruits, veggies and whole grains. Also try to get your full 8 hours of sleep each night and your hair will improve in appearance as a result.

 

Restrictive Hats are a No-No

 

Hat’s that are very tight around the head can lead to the development of a condition known as traction alopecia, which basically means that the hat pulls the hair out of your head. Unfortunately, when this happens, it can become permanent, and you may well be left with bald patches.

 

Try a Capillus

 

If hair loss is something that you’re suffering from, it might be worth trying the Capillus. This simple device uses a system of lasers to help thicken up thinning hair. It could be just the thing you need if you don’t think that the bald look is for you and a comb-over just won’t fly (it won’t).

 

Use Serum

 

If you’re prone to frizzy hair and that’s not cool with you – some people can pull off frizz just fine – then you might want to consider using a moisturizing serum along with your other hair products. Doing so will help to slick down your hair, make it easier to manage and give it a little more healthy shine too!

 

Look After Your Scalp

 

Your hair grows out of your scalp, which means that looking after your scalp is a vital part of keeping your hair in pristine condition. Massaging, using tea tree oil solutions to treat dandruff, and exfoliating the scalp monthly should be enough to keep things in check.

 

Visit the Barber Regularly

 

Whatever your hairstyle, if you want it to stay looking healthy, then you need to give it some professional attention from time to time. So, set regular appointments for styling your locks, having your split ends trimmed or your sides and you won’t have to worry about a thing.

 

Some say the clothes make the man, others say that it’s the character, but there is no denying that your hair plays an important role in making you who you are and that’s why you should show it some respect.

Gift Ideas For Guys-Gentlemen’s Curb Plus Male Influencer

In Lifestyle On The 'Curb

Why is gift shopping so difficult when you’re trying to buy something for a male friend? You might buy little gifts and presents for Mom or your girlfriend every few weeks, but guys are different. When was the last time you received a gift from a mate? Can’t remember? Chances are you can’t remember what you got either because it didn’t make that much of an impact. If flowers and candies are strictly for the ladies in your life, then why not try some of these options next time you have to pick something up for a friend:

 

Music To His Ears

 

If your male friend loves music, then it’s time you did a little research. You probably already have a good idea what his musical tastes are. Now you need to find that rare release. Vinyl will always feel that little bit special, especially when compared to a digital download. If you get stuck, go with the CD. Look for a signed cover or a limited release artwork. Collectors’ items are always worth the investment. You’re bound to be remembered for this gift choice.

 

Gadgets And Gizmos

 

Most men love their tech, and a gift that looks high-tech could be perfect when you’re stuck for ideas. They can be novelty items, or genuinely useful. What a man doesn’t need is another mini fridge stowed under his desk? Then, of course, is the app-controlled drone, or the fish-eye lens for his phone. If you’re worried about getting the wrong thing, then why not get him something that protects the tech he already has? Ruggedized cases for tablets and phones will always be welcome accessories.

Those Habits

 

Most of us have the odd habit or guilty pleasure. Perhaps you’re looking to get him yet another chillum, or you’ve spotted some customizable shot glasses? If the man loves a particular candy bar, why not get him one of those miniature vending machines that can spew out an endless supply of them? Of course, you could always cook him a meal! Whatever he enjoys, go ahead and celebrate that. That’s what gifts are about, after all.

 

Vouchers? Really?

 

Let’s face it – buying fashion for a friend might not go down too well. But you could hand over some vouchers from the retailer he shops at most. Vouchers are a great way to avoid making mistakes. They don’t have to be impersonal though. Perhaps there is a store he always checks out but never buys. Convince him to make that purchase with a voucher. Don’t forget, niche stores like comic book stores, gadget outlets and instrument retailers all offer gift vouchers. Be thoughtful, and you’re bound to get it right.

Tickets

 

You can’t often go wrong with tickets. And who wants to go to the game alone? Buying tickets to a home game could be the perfect gift, and you get to benefit too. Just make sure you’re both free for that one! Have you ever struggled to get a great gift for a male friend? Make a great impression with one of these choices. And be memorable in the right way!

Healthy Eating for Those Who Aren’t Gifted in The Kitchen

In Lifestyle On The 'Curb

gentlemenscurb, lifestyle, xlinfluencer

Not everyone can cook. But that’s okay. For some reason, so many of us are convinced that you have to be some sort of Nigella Lawson or Gordon Ramsay in the kitchen to be able to maintain a healthy and balanced diet. Fortunately, this isn’t necessarily true. While you might not be able to whip up a five-course meal with ingredients nobody really knows how to pronounce correctly, you can easily ensure that you get all of your necessary vitamins, minerals, and other forms of essential nutrition into your diet. Here are a few simple ways to go about it.

 

Kick Meat to the Curb

 

First things first, it’s a good idea to ditch meat from your diet. Why? Well, believe it or not, various studies have proven that meat (red meat in particular) can have a whole host of detrimental effects on our overall health and wellbeing. What’s more? While you may think that meat is healthy, the majority of us tend to opt for cuts that are fatty or cheaper options such as burgers, nuggets, and meat slices that are often made from reformed meats and the cold cuts that hold little nutritional value. Besides the negative health complications caused by meat consumption, taking on a vegetarian or vegan diet also makes you think a lot more about what you’re putting into your body. Fast food chains and take aways tend to have little to satisfy a veggie’s needs, so you’re more likely to keep them at bay. You will also have to read up a little more on what your body requires to gain sufficient levels of protein. This will expand your knowledge regarding nutrition and healthy living, which you can then implement into every meal you cook up.

 

Try a Different Type of Food Delivery

 

Takeaways are a complete health hazard. Sure, one here and there will be fine. But if you find yourself regularly chowing down on these meal options, you’re likely to experience issues with obesity, bad skin, and nutritional deficiency. So, what’s a person to do if they have little time on their hands for cooking themselves? Well, there’s a healthy alternative: Meal Delivery. Specialist companies use gourmet chefs to cook up high quality, nutritious, and delicious meals that can be brought right to your doorstep. So, no more excuses!

Learn How to Make Soups and Stews

gentlemenscurb, xlinfluencer,

If you’re a novice in the kitchen, try learning how to make a few basic soups and stews. These are some of the simplest culinary ventures out there. They can also be made in bulk and frozen to be eaten later in smaller portions. But the best part? Soups and stews can be absolutely packed with a whole variety of vegetables, making them one of the most filling, hearty, and healthy options that you can get. So, start looking up a few simple recipes. Tomato, butternut squash, and carrot soups have very few ingredients and steps in the cooking process but are greatly rewarding once they’re done.

 

So, no matter how incompetent you may think you are when it comes to cooking, you can still ensure that you get everything you need in your diet.

As a man of size, I am leery when I hear about brands that promote a product specifically for people of size. I am sure that all brawn men, plus size men and big and tall men can relate. I am an XXXL man. I am 6’1, I weigh about 312 pounds and wear a size 15 shoe. I am leery of brands that are trying to take advantage of people of size. Some brands say that their products are cater us, but they don’t cater to us at all. Some brands are just want another quick buck and don’t are of the needs of people of size.

So, when I heard of Big Fig. I was absolutely skeptical about the mattress brand. I am saying to myself  “here we go, another brand that’s trying to exploit us.” I laughed to myself. I had plans to jump on the mattress and test it out. I knew for sure that the bed frame would break. I was prepared to slander the company, because usually I destroy mattresses.  I have gone through mattresses the way most people go through sneakers. But, what grabbed my attention was that Big Fig offers a twenty year guarantee. Any brand that offers a twenty year guarantee, must believe in their product. From that point, Big Fig had my complete attention.

Instead of offering a one shot deal purchase, Big Fig believes in their product so much that they offer a twenty year guarantee. I purchased a Big Fig mattress and I gave them the ultimate test. I invited my four year old nephew to my apartment to “play.” What my nephew didn’t know is that I was going to test out the mattress. So, we jumped on the mattress. I wanted to see if Big Fig’s guarantee of the mattress not being indented was true. I sat on the corner of the bed while my nephew jumped tirelessly. Then I joined him! I jumped, at first with hesitation, because I thought the bed frame would break, but the mattress hardly moved! At all. The mattress absorbed the force. When I saw that mattress hardly gave, I was convinced! I have been regretting getting out of bed since.  The mattress also has some cooling technology, which helps with sleeping comfortably.

I am definitely love my mattress. Big Fig made a product that caters to people of size. At times, its hard to get out of the bed. The bed is so comfortable! I get phone calls and some of friends already know what I am doing, I am laying down! Thanks, Big Fig! If you like what you read, leave a comment.

The ‘Curb’s Essential Phone Review- The Gentlemen’s Curb Plus Male Influencer

In Lifestyle On The 'Curb

Photo Credit: cnet.com

I have been an Android fanatic since the beginning. I was so excited about Google’s first phone called the G-1!  I loved the open source market and how Amazon shopping was once integrated into the Android Market. (It’s also bizarre that the port for charger and headset were the same. I hated it then. Now, it seems to be the standard for the phones.)

The Essential Phone

In the shortage of stock Android phones, a company rose and debuted the Essential PH-1. The company is a new company made by one of the first developers of the Android operating system. No logo, no bizarre designs, just a high-quality phone. I was excited! I didn’t understand the marketing plan, but I gave it a shot! I am an Android fanatic as stated, so I didn’t have much to lose.

The Essential Phone

What I dislike about the phone is that some of the “essentials” weren’t considered.
The camera is could be so much better. There are dual cameras, but the mark is missed. The camera is also lacking a lot of features in my opinion. (I will be using my iPhone for the camera.)

The screen is impressive, but there is a camera in the middle! It’s an eyesore. It throws off the dynamics of the phone. The phone also boasts the worlds first 360 cameras for a smartphone.

Essential Phone

I have an iPhone 7 and comparing the processing speed in recording the fingerprints. There was a significant difference! I was absolutely impressed. The RAM and memory for the phone are impressive! The phone runs smoothly and I am using 21 gigs already. As of yet, I haven’t received one crash report yet. I purposefully leave as many apps as I can running. And the phone’s hardware is able to run all of the apps with ease.

The phone’s speaker is absolutely impressive. It overpowered the iPhone 7 and the Samsung S8 .
The phone is very sturdy. I dropped the phone three times accidentally and there wasn’t a scratch on the phone. The phone is made with some titanium components. (I am a fairly tall man, so my fear with smartphones is dropping them, but not with the essential phone.) I love the design of the device. I love that the Essential phone charges quickly. It helps especially with blogging and always being on the go.

Team Essential can only go forward from here. A very strong first showing. I am very impressed. The phone reminds me of my Motorola Nexus. Now if I can only find a headset and a phone case because that’s an absolute chore! Great work, I am looking forward to more from the essential team in the future.

The Gentlemen’s Curb is a lifestyle blog where fashion meets fitness in a BIG way. We highlight brands and lifestyle options for men of size. As a man of size, you could imagine it’s extremely difficult for us. If I find a store that carries my shoe size, it’s a celebration. There are certain clothing brands that I can not wear and I am sure that there are many that can relate to my experiences.

Cars.com offers to find a car absolutely easy. There are so many options and I can find a car that caters specifically towards me.  Because of my size, I am clearly interested in SUV’s. It would only make sense. I wouldn’t be able to fit comfortably in a lot of cars. Cars offers the price of the SUV, also the miles of the gas to the gallon. Cars also inform you the number of seats in the car.

Cars.com also rounds up all of the top SUV’s, the safety features, the warranties as well. The reviews that left on the site also pay a huge role for me. It gave an honest assessment and will help me consider when it’s time to purchase. Cars.com has stats to make purchasing a car easy for everyone.
