    Morning vs. Evening

    I used to shave mornings, but lately I've been shaving evenings, before bed so that like many others describe, I can enjoy the shave without needing to watch the clock. Still enjoy a Saturday/Sunday morning shave before going out though.

    Manicures and Pedicures

    My only pedicure was from a friend of a former girlfriend who happened to have her own nail studio and genoursly shouted us both pedi's. It involved a soak, pedi, scrub, Chinese foot massage and was just amazing. I had show worthy toe nails for a good four months after that !

    Optimum days growth between shaves

    I seem to get better results with 2-3 days growth. But I love shaving every day...Sometimes I'll skip shaving Thursday/Friday just to enjoy a leisurely Saturday morning shave with a new rotation.

    Proraso or Musgo Real?

    Musgo Real is fantastic during winter. I find it leaves a slight protective coating of something once it has dried. May not be for everyone but I love that as protection against the wind and the scent doesn't really interfere with any cologne.

    Olympics 2016. Who's watching?

    I'll be watching, and always enjoy the Olympics. Swimming is my favourite but a friend is competing for Australia in the Marathon, so the that's a must watch too.

    Welcome aboard Robi. Sounds like a nice set up you've started. TOBS is just delightful - I enjoy Jermyn, Eton College and St James the most. You might try your luck in antique stores, I've found a few Slims that way and even bought one for $20AUD cased. I sold it and now wish I didn't!

    What Pen are you waiting for?

    Jinhao 159 in 'gold trim'. It was $5AUD and since it will be a while before I can afford the Meisterstück 149 it is based off I thought 'why not!'

    Sink clogging after starting wet shaving

    I'm currently having the same problem. I live with my landlord, who thinks it's my shaving soap and whiskers. I took a look in the p-trap and it's squeaky clean. Vinegar and baking soda didn't do much to help, nor has a plunger. FWIW I've never had this problem before. I suspect it might be my...

    Sounds like a great store! What a range. :thumbup: let the AD's begin :lol: - it's nice to have a 'home store' to check products out in, we don't have too many in Perth.

    Another +1 for TOBS Jermyn, it is my go to TOBS cream, and I just love the scent (even bought the deodorant!). My other TOBS favourites are Eaton College and St James. Out of interest, what state was this in?

    Can't get a close shave with Astras

    I loved Astra's when I started wet shaving 7 or so years ago, they're real smooth and forgiving. I tried them again recently and found them so so, I now prefer a more aggressive blade. That said, I'll happily use Astras any time, especially in an aggressive razor, where I still find they are...
