My Goals for 2017 – The Prep Guy’s Journals

February 2, 2017 0 comments

Hey Prepsters,

Goal setting can seem like it is an overwhelming thing to do, especially when you reflect on everything that happened (or didn’t happen) in the year before. I honestly feel so blessed to be able to do what I love, which is blogging, and my resolutions for last year were mostly met. One of the goals, that I unfortunately didn’t meet, was to lose a large sum of weight. But I realized this year, that my approach was incorrect. Instead of aiming for a healthier and more active lifestyle, I was hoping that the pounds would shed off magically. Instead of dwelling on what I could have done better, I thought it would be more productive to do better this year. However, a lot of amazing things did happen for me; from gracing my first print commercial for Nautica in Sharp Magazine – to getting to work with brands that I’ve only dreamt of working with, and being represented by FFM/Rock it Promo which is a dream come true. Additionally, my school grades are better than ever, and I found myself being able to juggle more things by being more organized.

1 ITEM, 3 LOOKS – NAVY FLANNEL TROUSERS

January 26, 2017 1 Comment

Hey Prepsters,

Great style isn’t about having a million things that cost a million dollars, it is about what you able to do with what you have. For this post, I am sharing how I styled a pair of flannel trousers from Banana Republic, three different ways.

I tried to keep each look with a good combination of high-low pieces, as that’s pretty much a good representation of how I actually dress on a regular basis… and too be honest, I feel like the most of us dress like that as well. Additionally, I always think of three different looks that I can wear an item with before buying it, which is a great general rule of thumb. Without further ado, here my 3 looks!

January 11, 2017 0 comments

Hey Prepsters,

This is the year of improving your style in more ways the one. The obvious decision would be to dress better in your everyday life. However, style entails more than just what you are wearing. It is also about the tools of the trade that help you look & feel your best. For this post, I will be focusing on gadgets/tools that you can use for skin, body and clothing from our friends at Conair.

Conair is one of those brands that everyone is familiar with and owns at least one product that we all love. However, there is more to Conair than just hair-styling tools. Although they are pretty much the masters of the hair tool gadgets, I wanted to also bring light to items that I have tested and approved of from the brand.

My Favourite Skincare Products for Men & Personal Regimen

January 11, 2017 0 comments

Hey Prepsters,

Since it is the top of the New Year, I understand that much like myself, many of you will be working towards meeting your goals. Especially when it comes to fitness and appearance, but often times, men forget to work on skincare. Here’s my list of skincare products that I 100% stand by, and no, this is in no way shape or form sponsored. These are really skincare products that I have used that I simply can’t live without. I also understand that some of these products are at a premium price point, but I think that these are all products that justify the price point with results and quality. I also have a few drugstore items that I love as well.

The Worst Menswear Trends of 2016

January 5, 2017 1 Comment

Hey Prepsters,

2016 was a really interesting year, but what I really realized in the menswear scope, was that menswear finally started breaking out of its mould on a larger scale. Since it has been making headlines that chokers for men are to be “a thing” this year, which is a major NO, I found it to be an appropriate time to share a few things that we don’t need to carry on into the new year. No longer was menswear just about wearing suiting, blazers, cardigans, and pretty much everything else that I loved. Technically speaking, it is a great thing for menswear to become more experimental, however, we faced a multitude of horrible menswear trends… that should just be left behind….and die *dramatic voice*. So here’s my list of the worst menswear trends of 2016
