They are everywhere! The beards, of course; no matter where you look, you’ll catch at least two guys playing hipster and growing that face bush with pride. And it’s cute, it really is.
We won’t even go into trying to deny how manly scruffy can look, not to mention how hot. However, have you ever thought about whether that face bush is actually doing you any good, in terms of health? You haven’t, obviously.

Deny it all you want, but all men secretly care about looking polished and staying super groomed; with that in mind, we’re giving you a few tips on how to step up your beard game, look great and stay healthy.

Wash Your Hair Man

Just because you’ve got short hair doesn’t mean you shouldn’t take good care of it. But there’s no dandruff you say? Pish posh, use a shampoo, conditioner, and to ensure your scalp is shiny and dandruff free (you have to take some preventative measures, anyhow). Ladies love hair that’s clean and well taken care of, so don’t let things get greasy, okay?

Tend to Your Beard

We get it, you have a magnificent beard. However, do you take care of it? Remember to trim and shave after a shower so that your beard-hair is the easiest to handle. Afterwards, make sure you apply the right conditioner to make it strong and long-lasting. Mind what you use in the bathroom, though – can come in all sizes and shapes, and unless you’re careful about the brand you’re using, i.e. its quality – you may be facing a problem soon enough. Unless you find what suits your glorious beard the best, you’re gonna have a rough time.

Keep Your Sweaty Pits Dry

Whether you like it or not, you will perspire and if you’re not taking care of yourself, it’s going to reek. Gross! Sure, you can force the manly look but manly doesn’t mean smelly! Good news is that, besides all the fancy deodorants, your best choice may be to . It’s great for keeping the nether regions dry and making sure nothing smells.

Polish Your Teeth

If you like to have an extra cup of Joe in the morning or if you enjoying smoking, perhaps you should consider investing more time in taking care of your pearly whites. Nothing beats a pretty smile, and unless you have the teeth for it, you won’t be smiling anytime soon. Learn how to use that toothbrush because going up and down savagely won’t do you any phentermine good. Oh, don’t forget about mouthwash either, as it’ll help eliminate any kind of aftertaste there might be left. For the guys who want to get that extra sparkle, teeth whitening is the thing. No, it won’t make you look like a douchebag or anything – simply, you’ll have gorgeous pearly whites to show off under that bushy thing dangling on your pretty face!

Clip Rogue Hairs

Just because we’re hairy all over doesn’t mean we have to pull a Caveman look on everyone now, do we? Pick up a pair of tweezers once in a while and take care of hairs gone bad. Nose hair, , and especially stray beard hairs can be awful to look at (and kind of itchy). Unless you like it when people ignore you all the time, take your time and pluck those hairs out.

We do hope this advice helped and that you’ll take them seriously; a groomed, healthy look should be your starting point – everything else comes after.

Everything You Need For A Chilled Night In

Posted in Lifestyle by

Sometimes a little bit of chill time is just what you need to recharge after a long week at work. I must admit it’s been a pretty hectic one for me this week, our working hours were extended from 8 a day to 12 a day (without any extra pay! yay!) so for me the previous statement could not be more true. I am, most certainly, going to have a chilled weekend, one where flat jobs get thrown out the window along with any kind of blasphemous Saturday morning alarm. One where you don’t get out of your comfy clothes till you really, really have to. One where you order pizza ‘cause you cba cooking. Herein, then, lies my recipe for a chilled night in.

Comfy Clothes

As I alluded to just now, something that is absolutely 100% vital for any kind of chill time is a set of comfortable clothes – be they pyjamas, joggers, or anything else you find remotely loose, free and comfy. It’s not unheard of for me to whack the PJs on at half 5 as soon as I get back from work, coz why not?! If you’re looking to buy some comfies, take a look at these men’s skinny joggers by Jack Wills.

Multiple hot beverages

Breakfast tea, green tea, peppermint tea, coffee, whatever. Hot beverages are an absolute necessity for any kind of evening, if you ask me. It’s the first thing I do when I get home from work. Pop the kettle on and make a brew. Milk and one sugar please. Bring the biccies out too why not.

Some quality time with your favourite hobby

For me, I have so many hobbies it’s hard to keep up with them all, and often one has to take priority over others. Right now the one I’m most enjoying is playing guitar. Which is dangerous because playing guitar equals wanting more guitar gear, and guitar gear is v. expensive and v. addictive when you start buying, soooo… Yeah. Slippery slope ‘n all that.

Be you an avid reader of the latest thrillers, a blogger, a baker, an artist, or anything in between, spend some quality time with your favourite hobby, and more importantly, enjoy it.

Scented candles

Always a frequent visitor to our coffee table is two or three scented candles. They just give off major chill vibes. Cheap ones, expensive ones, whatever. Most of ‘em smell good, some last longer than others. I’d say get the best you can afford ‘cause they’ll last weeks. It’s a bit generic but I love Yankee candles, and this time of year they’re always in a sale somewhere.

A new TV series

If you have not got a hobby you can get on with, put your feet up and enjoy a new TV series. And with Netflix, Now TV, Amazon Prime TV and all the other on-demand services offered by Sky and Virgin, there’s really SO many to choose from, its hard to pick – but here’s some recommendations from me: The Man in the High Castle (Amazon Prime), Prison Break (Netflix), Sherlock (BBC), Breaking Bad (Netflix), Narcos (Netflix), Homeland (Netflix), The Walking Dead (HBO), House of Cards (Netflix), Black Sails (Amazon Prime) and Peaky Blinders (Netflix).

A throw

Perfect for these winter nights when it’s a little chilly indoors and you’re settling down for a lil’ cheeky lay on the settee. Coupled with a new TV series and the aroma of your candles, you really can’t go wrong. Comfort/chill levels maxed.

Optional: Treat your skin

If your favourite thing to do is a lil’ self pampering, everyone’s loves a good Lush bath bomb and bubble bar (shower gel is a great cheap alternative, btw). Get the tap running, a relaxing Spotify playlist ready, bring in a few scented candles, switch off the lights and… relax. You’ve earned it.

Is there anything I’ve missed that you think should be in there? Make sure you let me know in the comments 🙂

6 Winter Fashion Essentials for Men

Posted in Style by

Happy New Year! I’ve not been around here much lately much due to the fact that I have had approx. zero motivation to do anything but sit around eating chocolate and drinking whiskey, and I really didn’t want to force myself to write when it didn’t feel right. However here we are, it’s now January, it’s just past my birthday (ew, 23, how old is that) and I feel ready to jump back into blogging.

I think it’s safe to say Winter has come. No more pretty Autumn insta photos, oh no. Pretty snow pictures, though? Perhaps – and as January brings some of the coldest weather of the year, there are some essentials that I think every guy should own to get through it in style. Although I may not feel v. stylish right now, sat in my pyjamas covered in a throw, don’t let that fool you…

BikerJacket2<img class="alignnone size-medium wp-image-1151" src="http://i0.wp.com/marcandrew.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2017/01/BikerJacket.jpg?resize=650%2C488" alt="BikerJacket" srcset="http://i0.wp.com/marcandrew.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2017/01/BikerJacket.jpg?resize=1000%2C750 1000w, http://i0.wp.com/marcandrew.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2017/01/BikerJacket.jpg?resize=1024%2C768 1024w, http://i0.wp Check This Out.com/marcandrew.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2017/01/BikerJacket.jpg?resize=950%2C713 950w, http://i0.wp.com/marcandrew.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2017/01/BikerJacket.jpg?resize=726%2C545 726w, http://i0.wp.com/marcandrew.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2017/01/BikerJacket.jpg?resize=100%2C76 100w, http://i0.wp.com/marcandrew.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2017/01/BikerJacket.jpg?w=1300 1300w, http://i0.wp.com/marcandrew.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2017/01/BikerJacket.jpg?w=1950 1950w” sizes=”(max-width: 650px) 100vw, 650px” data-recalc-dims=”1″ />A Biker Jacket

Biker Jackets have become one of my new loves. They’re thick, look great and this one from River Island that Kate bought me for Christmas has a beautiful fluffy cosy lining that’s comfortable as well as warm. Great for those days where it’s not quite below freezing. As an added feature, should you feel inclined, you can zip them all the way to the top if you get too chilly. A biker jacket would make a great addition to your closet for mild January trips out.

A Bomber Jacket

I’ve mentioned it before on the blog: bomber jackets are awesome. A great alternative to the above mentioned biker jacket, it gives your wardrobe fab versatility – you don’t want to be wearing the same kind of jacket all the time, do you? Although not particularly thick, worn above a nice cosy jumper and scarf they provide adequate protection from the Winter chills. Help yourself keep stylish this January with this black bomber jacket from Maniere Devoir.

Some Chelsea Boots

Who’s got time for laces? For me, a pair (or three) of Chelsea boots is an absolute 100% necessity for any man’s wardrobe. I’ve been alternating my pairs for all occasions except smart events, and even then the right pair can work. The ease of use and warmth they offer puts these bad boys right in my January Essentials. I love these ones from Topman.

A Peacoat

When Winter throws the harshest of conditions at you, you better be prepared to face them head on. My wool pea coat is the warmest of all my outerwear (and really, could even be worn over the bomber jacket) and it’s this time of year that really makes it worth it’s price tag. Pea coats can often be quite expensive items, however if you buy one now it’ll last you for years to come. And right now a lot are in the sales, so what are you waiting for? Turn your collar up for added protection. I really like this one from Asos, and at £50, it’s a steal.

An Under Armour Thermal T-Shirt

For an added layer of protection from the cold, consider a thermal T-shirt from a brand such as Under Armour. Although they can feel quite uncomfortable at first if you’re not used to wearing them, they offer great heat retention to keep your body warm under your clothes. I have a couple which you can’t even see when I’m wearing them, so they’re very inconspicuous if you’re worried it might ruin your look.

A Dressing Gown

Can nightwear be considered ‘fashion’? I’m not sure but in this case I’ve included it. Central heating is all well and good but some of us are on budgets. I for one know how this feels! A lovely, thick dressing gown not only feels cosy but also keeps your warm and saves on the heating bill. Of course this isn’t as much of a worry to those of you who don’t pay bills, in which case enjoy it while it lasts! Debenhams have some great dressing gowns on offer, I have one much like this one here.

There you have it – 6 must-have items to get you through the Winter months. I hope you’re all having a fab beginning to 2017 and I’m sure I’ll be seeing you all very soon!
