    Finally back after Master Program hiatus

    I can finally start perusing the forums again after almost 2 years. This Masters degree kicked my tail, so I had to log out of forums and get my school done. It paid off, I am still married and managed a 4.0. Now I have time for forums and the internet again! Looking forward to catching up and...

    Finding a fragrance

    Well I am new to the cologne realm. I personally like Burberry, the original with the notes of Bergamot. It is what I use right now, but it isn't SWMBO's favorite. However, I just discovered Dr. Jon's Razwar aftershave and the scent is wonderful. A blending sandalwood, allspice, black pepper...

    Brush Advice for Wife Gift

    I am thinking of looking into a brush for my wife for Christmas. She has used mine a couple of times and likes it. I figure this is a good road to start down to potentially get her using a safety razor, but baby steps. I am not sure of my budget, but pretty sure it would be max of $100. As...

    Reviews: pilot varsity/schaeffer viewpoint

    These are my first 2 fountain pens to own. I have had the varsity for a little over a month and the viewpoint just a few days. As for the varsity, it's greatest asset is the price and ease of use. It always has ink whenever you want it and when it runs out, you can just trash it; very...

    New AE on the way!

    Finally convinced the SWMBO that a new pair of shoes was a great idea. Went into the AE factory store in Charleston, SC and tried a few pair on. Ended up going with a pair of light brown neumoks! They are in the mail since they didn't have my size in the store. I am excited to get these and...

    First time with MdC!

    Ok, I was a little skeptical seeing all the talk and wondering if it was actually true. Then I saw Garry had organized a way to get samples, and I had to try. I got both the regular and fougere. Well tonight I tried the fougere. And all I have to say is wow. So easy to lather. About 10...

    Yeti Snot Rocket to the eye!

    Just as a word of warning, be very careful when applying yeti snot to the face. The heavily mentholated snot isn't as cold when it hits your eye. Just a word of caution. Carry on with your day.

    Ok so I used the Snot for the 2nd time today. This time I tried a super lather with some CO Bigelow. I still didn't get the cushion I was looking for. It was better lather than the first time, but not there. Anyone have tips for lathering the Snot? The lather I get is a little thin. I am not...

    Yeti Snot review

    First off, holy crap this soap is cold! I don't mean, oh there's some menthol in here. I mean, holy crap my eyes are watering and my neighbor knows there is menthol in there! The cold was great. I kind of had to squint my eyes while shaving due to the menthol, but loved it. 2nd and 3rd pass...
