I have mentioned Wise Men’s natural hair products before, but with Father’s Day this week, seems like a good time for an update.  He had tried a small sample of the Red Maple Cream Pomade in our previous post, but I recently got a full size to fully test it and compare to the Clay Pomade reviewed earlier. Not mentioned here, but they have a great shampoo that leaves your hair feeling ultra clean.  It contains White Birch Bark, a sustainable[Read more]

Look at me saving purple til last.  Impressive as it is usually the first one on my nails!  This is the final of the five polish Alter Ego Velocirapture collection.  Nice Boy by Alter Ego is a foil like lavender.  It has a chrome base that helps give a smooth glowy finish.  But if you are going to get brush strokes with any of the collection, it is this one.  A little less opaque than the others in the collection[Read more]
