Depending on your profession, you may be restricted to conservative, professional type wardrobe choices for the workday. When you experience those days when your professional attire doesn’t flatter your figure, you’ll probably feel a little disgruntled throughout the day. Looking good and feeling good go hand in hand. You may find it helpful to rely on a variety of body shapewear products to help you look stunning at work and during your leisure time.
When you’re not at work, you can let your personality shine with your wardrobe choices. Artistic, colorful, whimsical, quirky and bizarre leggings, socks, tights and leg warmers can make you look like art in motion. Any of these products can wake up the most mundane outfit you have in your closet. There’s no need to spend a lot of money on new clothes when leg wear can elevate your wardrobe items to a more interesting, personalized level.
Leg warmers and boot toppers should be a part of your accessory collection. These items alone can demonstrate your flair for style and the attention to detail you give to your wardrobe choices. An assortment of socks or furry, chenille or sherpa shoes would be great items to put on your gift wishlist.
Men no longer have to settle for uninteresting black or brown socks or socks with subtle boring designs. For those leisure days when fun is the word of the day, brilliantly colored socks in creative patterns would be an ideal accessory.
A good old-fashioned traditional shave can be accomplished with exceptional wet shaving supplies that will provide the most satisfying shaves of your life. You will notice a dramatic difference when you use a good brush, a high quality thick rich shaving cream or gel brought to a lather, remove the lather with a straight edge razor or a double-edge safety razor, and finish off with an aftershave splash or balm.
Wool Fat Shaving Soap
A unique product is this soap handmade on Florida’s Gulf Coast, which gives the benefit of lanolin and creates a rich and silky lather that your razor will glide across. The soap, which makes a nice gift, comes in six scents: Amaretto for sensitive skin, Arabian Spice, Black Lavender with its sensual aroma; Mountain Spice with an earthy lingering scent of bay rum and amber, Tea Tree with an herbal scent and a hint of fresh mint, and Winter Grapefruit.
Horsehair or badger shaving brushes
Badger hair is the most popular because of its density and capacity to hold the lather and water. Horsehair brushes have become popular, especially with the way the hair is collected by painlessly brushing it from the mane or tail of the horse.
The Silver Bullet Travel Shaving Brush
Another unusual gift item for the man who constantly travels is this economical and handy brush that comes in a vented tube for storage between shaves.
These products are quickly being rediscovered by men dissatisfied with the usual shaving creams in a can and modern razors. Your shaving experience will feel like a luxury instead of a chore ritual that you need to perform about 13,000 times in your lifetime. You’ll also receive compliments that will make all the extra efforts worthwhile.
For the kids, Halloween – and all holidays really – are a thing of magic. Children love to explore fantastical worlds of their own creations, and roleplay as their favourite characters from movies, TV and books. Dressing up in costumes and acting out games as a character help children to learn how to deal with difficult situations and how to be empathetic – by thinking about how the character might react, instead of their own feelings.
There are certain characters and types of characters that are timeless: they are an essential part of what it means to be a child. It’s my belief that at some point, every child should experiment with dressing up as and acting out these types of characters – and since Halloween is coming up, it’s a great time to pick up some inexpensive children’s costumes you kids can enjoy again and again.
What are these timeless charactes every child should dress up as? Here are my choices:
Regardless of age or gender, it’s pretty safe to say all children dream of being a superhero at some stage. Many of us still do! So it’s only right that your son or daughter gets to dress-up as their favourite superhero this Halloween; Superman, Spiderman, Wonder Woman … I can almost guarantee they have a definite favourite, so do your homework and make this the most super Halloween costume yet!
Every child should release their inner animal at least once! Be it an elephant, lion or a creepy insect: animal costumes are always a great bet! Most animal costumes being made for Halloween are part of a set of onesies, or footed pajamas, so will keep your children warm on a cool Halloween night. Perfect for Trick or Treating!
They’ll be the coolest kids this Halloween when they are dressed as their favourite celebrity! Get them dressed up in style this year by drawing inspiration from their favourite singer or Disney star. You can often find many celebrity children’s costumes for sale in online stores. It’s a great opportunity to get creative in putting together a look your son or daughter will love!
A classic childrens costume, and great on both boys and girls! Because who doesn’t love bandanas, eye-patches, parrots and swords? Sounds to me like the key ingredients to the greatest costume for your kid ever. All you need is a sword and Arrrr Me Hearties!
Every little girl dreams of being a princess – so this Halloween make her dream come true! Choose a pink princess dress made of brocade and satin, add some gold trim and a petticoat, headpiece and veil. It’s a costume fit for a (little) queen!
Have you asked your child who they want to dress as for halloween? Do they have a favourite celebrity, superhero or book character? Is there a character in their life who they show a lot of empathy for? Let your child lead the way in choosing the best children’s costume for their personality.
