Sexy Shoes For Every Guy On Your List From Lugz

 

With Christmas just around the corner, I can’t think of a better gift to give the guys on your list than a fresh pair of kicks.  Lugz has lots of new arrivals with tons of styles for every man, so no matter what his style is, you can find the pair that are just right.  I’m sure you all know by now how much I love Lugz, so it should come as no surprise I’ve chosen a fashionable pair of their sneakers for my husband to sport around town.  The fabulous designs Lugz has for the whole family combined with durability and style makes it easy to find shoes for the whole family in one convenient spot.

 

 

My husband can be pretty rough on his shoes, but Lugz have held up to all of the abuse he puts shoes through, and then some.  I have come to fall in love with the durability, style, and price, while my husband has fallen in love with the comfort as well.  Although we live in Arizona, winter around here is pretty rough.  We live in a higher elevation where we get 115 degree days easily in the summer, and drop to single digits with snow in the winter.  While looking through the new selections available at Lugz.com, I found these Pine Ridge WR boots that my husband absolutely HAD to have.

 

 

Aren’t these some of the most awesome boots you’ve ever seen?  My husband immediately fell in love with the shoes online, but once he got them in his hands he loved them so much more.  The material feels AMAZING and they’re lightweight to boot so they’re great to where anywhere, whether you’ll be out for a little while or an extended period.  The comfort is what you’d expect from Lugz, like walking on a cloud, and Lugz will settle for no less.  Inspired by the traditional alpine boot, the Pine Ridge WR is a rugged and functional boot that’s packed full of features every guy will love.

PRODUCT DETAILS:

  • Water resistant permahide upper
  • Padded tongue & collar
  • “Flexastride” molded memory foam insole
  • ASTM-F1677, Mark II tested slip resistant rubber sole

 

Whether you’re shopping for children, teens, men, or women, Lugz has a fabulous selection for everyone on your holiday shopping list.  Pick up a pair today and surprise that special someone with a gift they’ll truly love.

Start Every Day With A Victory…Victory Shampoo #Review

20160902_112836.jpg

Every guy needs a great way to start the day…why not start the day with a victory?  VICTORY anti-dandruff shampoo, that is.  VICTORY is a bold, contemporary, and irreverent anti-dandruff shampoo that gives guys a confident new choice in therapeutic hair care.  With a husband and 2 sons in the house, I couldn’t wait to get some VICTORY in the house for them to try out.

VictoryCollage.jpg

VICTORY was created to take your hair game to the next level with the powerful dandruff formula you need in a shampoo you actually want. With VICTORY, you start each day with a win. A complete domination of dandruff. And when you put up a “W’ before breakfast, that winning feeling carries over into the rest of your day. 

The dark blue bottle pictured is the Superior Clean formula.  It not only gets rid of dandruff, but also prevents recurrence of flaking and itchiness associated with dandruff.  Hydrate & Recover (aqua colored bottled) is sort of like a sports drink for your scalp.  Hydrate & Recover contains a special moisture balancing formula with added almond oil for optimal scalp hydration and recovery to relieve dryness. It will moisturize your dry scalp while reducing oiliness.  Legendary (silver bottle)  provides a rich lather that deep cleans both hair and scalp PLUS conditioner gives your hair epic softness.  Triple Threat (orange bottle) will prevent dandruff, clean your hair and scalp, and has a fresh mango scent. It’s the ultimate trifecta with 1% Pyrithione Zinc to help relieve and prevent scalp dryness,itchiness, flakes and irritation associated with dandruff.  Triple Threat was the favorite of both of my sons due to the fresh, light mango scent.  

After having VICTORY in our household, there’s no way that we’re ever running out.  My husband and my sons have been using VICTORY for just about a week now and they all have loved the way their hair feels, smells, and most of all that it’s flake free!  One of my local Wal-Mart’s is one of the top 10 sellers of VICTORY and it’s easy to see why.  It’s affordable, effective, and great for men (or teens) of all ages.

Stay Cool And Dry With Chill Boys Boxers #Review

cropped-chill-boys-logo-1950-x-500-1.png

If you haven’t heard of Chill Boys yet, they are the world’s best high performance boxers for high performance guys.  Chill Boys boxers are made from ultra cooling micro-mesh fabric that have a uniquely flexible design for the most comfortable fit.  These boxers are lightweight and can stretch and move with your body no matter what it is that you’re doing.  Chill Boys are breathable and will keep your boys dry all day long!  Chill Boys offer the utmost comfort where so many other companies have failed.

ChillBoys.jpg

I was really eager to get my hands on a pair of Chill Boys for my husband.  If you look up high performance man, a picture of my husband will pop up (not literally, but it should!).  We live in Arizona, and my husband works outside all year round.  This summer has been BRUTAL and we’ve been averaging over 110 degrees every day.  Because of the nature of work my husband does (under houses much of the day installing utilities and plumbling), he wears jeans all year round and comes home soaking wet every day.  The life of a man who splits apart, transports, and installs manufactured homes in Arizona is pretty rough, and Chill Boys have made a huge difference for my husband in the short time he’s had them.

The moisture wicking properties of these boxers are unbelievable!  My husband came home after his first day of using these, gave me a kiss, and thanked me over and over for them.  He said staying dry helped him stay cooler, and as you can imagine in this heat, feeling cooler can mean the difference between miserable and comfortable.  The flexible design is another feature that my husband really loves.  He has a generous behind for a man, and his cotton boxers ride up, bunch, and end up disappearing in his behind (I know, not pretty, but let’s be honest here!).  The Chill Boys boxers stay comfortably in place all day, no ridding up which means no bunching and no chafing.  The waistband adds another level of comfort with no itchy tag, and a nice wide band to hold the boxers where they should be.

Give the man in your life the gift of comfort with Chill Boys boxers.

Chill Boys has provided a 10% off code for all of my followers!  Enter: TKU6ZOJE at checkout, the coupon will be active through 9-30-16

Mission Belt Is Changing The Belt Game And The World One Belt At A Time #Review

logo.png

Mission Belt may be a brand many of you have already heard of.  I first saw Mission Belt on the television show Shark Tank.  Ever since my husband and I saw the Mission Belts, my husband has wanted to try one and see if it could fill the gap where all the other belts he has tried have failed.  When you buy a Mission Belt, a dollar from every belt goes to fight hunger and poverty worldwide through micro-lending. These micro-loans range from $25-$500 dollars per loan. These small loans make HUGE differences in the lives of those who receive them. There are millions of industrious, motivated people striving and fighting for a better life and sometimes the only thing holding them back is a little capital to get started. It’s a hand up, not a hand out.

MissionBelt.jpg

When Mission Belt agreed to send me a belt to review I couldn’t wait to pick one out for my husband and surprise him.  I chose the Stealth Belt in Swat Black, and I have to say I think I made the perfect choice.  The nylon webbing outside is rugged enough to hold up to my husbands particularly tough job (moving houses, literally).  The matte finish belt buckle holds the belt in place really well and allows my husband to be more comfortable while working because his pants stay where they’re supposed to.  There are no holes, so your belt won’t stretch and wear, and you don’t have to worry about those worn out buckle holes.  The belts and buckles are interchangeable so you can create your own custom look based on what you’re wearing that day.

I think I opened a can of worms…my husband wants to keep adding to his collection until he has every Mission Belt…heaven help me (HAHA!).  If you’re ready for a step up in comfort and style, try Mission Belts and see for yourself what all the fuss is about.

Spend Your Summer In Ultimate Comfort With OOFOS #Review

logo

If you’ve never heard of OOFOS before, they’re the best thing you’ve been missing you’re entire life!  OOFOS are so much more than just a sandal…they are the most comfortable pair of recovery footwear you will ever put on your feet.  Sure, there are other foam footwear options available out there, but when compared none of them stack up the the performance and comfortability of OOFOS.  Mos athletic shoe foams are designed to “rebound” and propel you forward. Revolutionary OOfoam does the opposite, absorbing 37% more shock with every step than traditional footwear foam.  Unlike flip-flops, the OOFOS patented footbed is designed with really great arch support to take the pressure off of ankles, knees and hips, as well as your lower back.  I have high arches and comfortable footwear has been impossible to find until OOFOS came into my life.

WomensOofos.jpg

OOFOS was generous enough to send me a couple pairs to try out and I couldn’t wait to slip them on!  I picked out the OOriginal womens in Periwinkle…aren’t they totally adorable?!  They are the perfect thing to keep my feet comfy this summer, and I absolutely love the color.  My feet have never felt more cradled and supported, and I have noticed a great reduction in foot and joint pain.

MensOofos.jpg

My husband is a hard working man so I figured what better person to spoil with a pair of OOFOS as well?  I ordered my husband the OOriginal mens in Steel so that it will match pretty much all of his wardrobe.  As soon as he tried them on he let out a sigh of relief and couldn’t believe how comfortable they are.  As soon as he gets from work and takes his shower he puts on his OOFOS to wear around the house or wherever he may need to go.  He has also noticed a reduction in foot, back, and joint pain which isn’t surprising considering how OOFOS had helped me.

The OOfoam is so durable that it will hold it’s cushion for it’s entire lifespan.  They resist moisture and bacteria, and are so light that they can float!  So go ahead, wear your OOFOS anywhwere, anytime.  Go ahead, your feet earned this.

Spoil Dad With The Hammacher Schlemmer High Definition Camera Drone #Review

ninco-air-quad-drone-max-avec-camera-hd

When you hear the name Hammacher Schlemmer, you should automatically know great things are to follow.  With Father’s Day just around the corner I figured what better time to try out a high-tech toy that any man would love?  It seems like drones are at the top of every man’s list, so I couldn’t wait to try out the High Definition Camer Drone available from Hammacher.

DroneCollage.jpg

I love the visual appeal this sleek drone offers.  The colors are really attractive, it is designed well, and is lightweight to boot.  The controls are easy to operate so even a novice like myself can have fun.

DroneCollage2.jpg

The drone responds quickly to the remote control commands, and it is A LOT of fun to fly!  You can control forward, backward, up, and down.  You can also make the drone do flips mid-air which are always an attention grabber to even a non-drone-enthusiast.  It can be pretty windy where I live, and I thought it would make it a little bit hard to take the drone up outdoors, but it handles really well and has a lot of power to be able to fight off the wind.

DroneCollage3.jpg

As if everything else great about this drone weren’t enough, I was really impressed with the HD camera equipped on it.  It takes video and pictures at 1280×720 HD which allows for crystal clear images.  This awesome drone is equipped with gyro stabilization so your video is always clear, never shaky.  Matter of fact…two of those three images in the collage above are screenshots from video, and one is a still image.  Can you tell which is which?  I bet you can’t, because the video is just THAT good.

I hoped to be impressed by the High Definition Camera Drone, but I got so much more than I expected.  There is really nothing left to desire and is great for a beginner, or someone experienced.

See How Jabra Changed The Ear Bud Game With The Sport Pulse #Review

jabra_logo_yellow.jpg

The next generation in ear bud technology is here. Jabra has introduced the Sport Pulse ear buds and they are fabulous!

JabraCollage.jpg

My husband and I have tried many brands and styles of ear bud to no avail. We were never able to find something (no matter what price range) that ended up lasting more than just a week. Between my fitness training and my husbands demanding, hard job we’ve gone through a small fortune in ear buds.  I was really eager to see how well the Jabra Sport Pulse performed, so I let my husband try them out since he would put them through much more abuse than me.

Jabra.jpg

My husband literally moves houses for a living. This involves him being under houses all day long, and if that weren’t enough, we live in Arizona. It’s hot, sweaty, dusty, dirty, and downright miserable. Listening to music while he’s working helps his day pass much smoother but so far nothing has worked for him. Jabra Sport Pulse ear buds are built towards US Military rain, shock, sand, and dust standards so I figured if anything would withstand my hubbys abuse, these would.

His first day using the Jabra Sport Pulse ear buds he came home in a great mood. He was able to listen to his favorite music all day long and was able to leave his phone in the truck so he didn’t have one extra thing in his way. Two weeks later and these things are STILL holding true to their promise to perform.

A really nice feature is also the ability to monitor your heart rate and analyze your physical activity. The Jabra Sport Life app is easy to install and use, making the whole experience very pleasant. You can even plan your workout right from the app!

Jabra really thought of everything when designing the Sport Pulse ear buds and leaves nothing to be desired. Now…I just need to get a pair for myself so I don’t regret letting my husband have them.  (You can also purchase a pair for yourself here.)
