The Black Eyed Peas
We love a good dance record that gives us something we can groove to. We especially love it when there are a few cool samples thrown in for good measure and take us back with fond memories. Case in point is this new album from the Black Eyed Peas. A solid effort with many great songs destined to burn up the charts and the dancefloor now and well into 2011.
The Black Eyed Peas are a hit machine, and it’s leader will.i.am has the midas touch in and out of the group. The Beginning entrenches them deeper into club culture with hip hop slick beats, hard candy pop, and rhythmic repetition.
The lead off single is an electro smasher called “The Time (Dirty Bit)” that samples the 1987 Dirty Dancing soundtrack hit (I’ve Had) The Time of My Life.
Other gems includes “Love You Long Time”, “The Best One Yet (The Boy)”, “Someday”, “The Situation”, “Whenever”, and “Fashion Beats”
British brand Bulldog skincare products was born out of frustration that there were no options available for eco-conscious men who wanted to reduce the number of man-made chemicals in their bathrooms.
As a pioneer of natural grooming for men in the UK, all Bulldog products are body friendly and don’t contain controversial chemicals like parabens, sodium laureth sulfate, artificial colors, or synthetic fragrances. Instead, all Bulldog products are loaded with beneficial botanicals, essential oils and other amazing natural actives to deliver excellent results.
Now available in the U.S. at Whole Foods markets nationwide, it’s easy to pick up natural, skin essentials like their Face Wash, Face Scrub, and Face Moisturizer (also available in their five-piece US brand is Shave Gel, and a post-Shave balm).
Last but certainly not least, during the cold months why not give your guy not just any plaid shirt, but the original, a classic, the iconic Pendleton wool plaid shirt like the Umatilla, the Vintage Fit Board Shirt or the Sir Pendleton.
As a kid and young man, I always had a Pendleton to keep me warm (instead of a heavy and bulky coat), layered over a t-shirt it was sometimes all I needed! Their designs are classic and timeless.
Pendleton utilizes the combination of expert dying, the highest quality wools and the soft water of the Pacific Northwest help give their shirt fabrics vivid, lustrous colors that do not fade. They stand the test of time and celebrate a tradition of 100 years.
Pendleton can also make a room merry with their distinctive blankets of bold buffalo plaid, jacquards, and Native American prints.
Pendleton is available at Pendleton stores, Urban Outfitters, and at Bloomindale’s.
