What to do with your grooming products?

Hi All,

Still sleep yet or you already on your way for long weekend holiday? Anyway, if you just stay at home and plan to watch Game of Thrones or The Real housewives of Atlanta marathon (I don’t judge), why don’t you add little activity to make your holiday more usefull? Clean up your grooming products?

I’m Gemini. So if you like me, then you know we all bit lazy (in very creative way). Our things all over the place and we need one special time (like today) to clean up our mess and to make ourselves feel better.

Even most man don’t have many grooming (beauty) products like woman do, but still if you look closely, you have many things in your bathroom or drawer, things that you didn’t know you have or even use. The shampoo that’s not working to clean your dandruff, the sample face cream that you have not use since last year, or the face cleanser that gives you acne and more blackheads? You see? You think you and I don’t have a lot in common, but think again.

So what to do with those products? Well, if you can’t use it anymore, then threw away, I hear you scream. Well, here’s another idea of how to maximize those products before you simply treat it as trash. Use it. Not on your hair or your face, but here’s idea of what to do:

  • Shampoo: Use it to as detergent to wash your underwear or socks.
  • Face cleanser: Use it as scrubs to clean your dirty feet.
  • Face cream: use it as body lotion.

Just make sure the expire date is still far away. After you do that, trust me as Gemini, you will feel better about yourself and your long weekend holiday.

Coach Bleecker Backpack Review

Coach Bleecker Backpack Review

Hi All,

This would be my biggest fashion purchase this year so far. A Coach Bleecker Backpack in leather. I bought it on my last day while holiday in Seoul.

I knew I had to have this back pack for many different reason, but if you must know, I had this particular back pack picture on my iPad for more than 3 years. So when I saw it on Lotte Shopping Mall, it was a dream come true for me. But it came with not so cheap price (at least for me). With $698 price tag, I have to eat instant noodle and missed the room rental for view months, but it’s worth it.

Just look at the product itself. The shape, the material, and the color are just so classic. You can totally wear it forever and even pass down to your family. This is the kind of product that you will only wish to have one for the rest of your life, just like my Timex watch, because you know you will satisfy for a long time.

Now I just need to put my initial name on the tag.

How To Upgrade Your Styling Game in Easiest Way

wpid-2015-08-15_22.26.40.jpg

Pick up the free store magazine to exercise your styling skill.

I think I have shared about this to you already, but anyway, let me explain again. Styling is sometime a confusing activity. But alll you have to do, in my opinion is exercise your styling sense on routine bases. I hear you asking, is there easy way? Yes, there is.

Simply read the fashion magazine or even more specific, the free magazine that you can get from fashion store like Padini or H&M. Every now and then, usually when there’s new collection, they also will publish magazine, full of fashion spread and styling tips.

And you what’s great about the store magazine? Since they will promote their latest collection, then they will style same items for different occasions. That’s the tips you can apply to your items.

Kaizen Indonesia: A modern barbershop which offers you quick but right hair cut in less than 10 minutes.

Hi All,

I really have busy schedule lately, so on the weekend, it’s my time to run errands, including time to maintain my hair. Since I also want to enjoy my weekend, it’s really important for me to get my hair done quick but right.

Enter Kaizen Indonesia. It’s a modern barbershop, which offers you quick cut in just 10 minutes. What I like about Kaizen is that it has around 40 outlets that really strategically so it’s really convenience for us, busy people. They even have outlet inside Seven Eleven store. For example, I got my haircut in Setiabudi One. It’s perfect place to get your hair cut on the weekend, but also, during working hours, because again, only 10 minutes. I got my hair cut in less than 9 minutes.

The place is clean, hygiene, and affordable.

Oh, have I mention that they sterilize all of the tools (scissor, hair comb, etc) for every customer? It’s hygienic and affordable (I only pay around IDR.45k) as well. Plus, in the end, they will give your free hair comb as souvenir. How cool is that? And if you have to wait, no worries, they also provide newspaper, magazine, even free wifi to entertain you. Not only it’s perfect hair cut for busy people for, but for children as well.

Rolling Clothes Racks

I think it’s a common sense that you should able to learn to be better from anywhere. For me, closet organizing skill is something that every man (count me in) still struggling with. But just like Vogue for woman, thank God there’s GQ for men as well. It’s like style reference for us to improve our fashion game, including our skill to organize the closet.

So I read this GQ article on how to improve our style resolution and it hit me. I can use one trick from the article. The rolling clothes racks. It’s simple yet effective trick for my situation. I live in one tiny room in Jakarta and I don’t have proper closet, so with this tool, I can really show my shirts and jackets just like what I see on the store. And guess what, I also can put my shoes down below the racks.

If you live in Indonesia or around Jakarta’s area, you can get this single rolling clothing racks (different brand, but more or less the same) at Carrefour for less than $15. How about that? So, thank you GQ.

Sharing is caring,

Sunscreen Lotion For Your Face

wpid-img_20150210_063244.jpg

Erhalogy sunscreen lotion

If you reading this, then you might have to find me on field, whether it’s on corn field or tomatoes field, mind my own business. But let me tell you this, there’s nothing better way to protect your face but sunscreen lotion while working directly under the sun. Because if you are single and getting old, doesn’t matter whether you are girl or boy, you need to keep it together.

As per my doctor’s suggestion, I use this Erhalogy sunscreen lotion for daily activities. It really helps if you are working outdoor most of the time. Plus, it also has antioxidant with Vitamin E & Pro Vit.B5.

If only I can be at the beach, It would be a perfect job.
