Eternity Summer by Calvin Klein

Eternity_Summer_-_Calvin_Klein

 

It’s not everyday I walk through a store and the smell catches my attention. Make no mistake, I still am in love with my Abercrombie Fierce cologne I talk about, (link). However, Calvin Klein is one of the other cologne brand that I am fascinated with too.

Eternity Summer by Calvin Klein is elegant in my opinion and it brings along a hint of Summer along with it’s signature Eternity by Calvin Klein. Price at USD32.99 (RM105) for 100ml, which is very affordable and worth it. I don’t always recommend to change your signature smell when you already have one, but why not spice things up for the Summer?

Outfit of the Day – Dance All Night to the Best Song Ever

Mind my title. Was feeling the vibe of it, as well as One Direction released a new song.

I finally had the chance to wear the shirt I bought a few days ago. It was perfect for a full day of chilling at the mall and dinner occasion with my friends. I really loved the polka dots on the shirt and the colour is so nice! Not a single regret spending money on this!

Shirt

I matched it up with a grey jeans from Levi’s. Levi’s Skinny fit jeans 511 and my Timberland shoes. I did not feel like mixing too many colours into my outfit as I want my shirt to stand out which it did very well. 

Watch

The accessories were the same as my usual, a Calvin Klein watch because I love it so much and Up by Jawbone accessory to track my daily steps which I talked about it from my earlier post.

For the shoes though, I never had much chance and items to go with it, so rather than the regular blue or black dress shoes, I chose something more striking and mature with this outfit.Shoe

Comments on what do you think of my outfit? Cheers.

Outfit of the day is back, haven’t gotten the time to photograph this. Life has been hectic, therefore so sorry for the late post.

This outfit is inspired by the staff and models of my favourite brand Abercrombie and Fitch. Their signature checkered shirt with a ripped jeans and a flip-flops is what most of the Abercrombie stores associate wears. I actually add a beg and a watch to suit our everyday life. This fashion is consider casual because of the flops, but you can change it into a semi-formal wear by wearing shoes.

Should You Wear Deodorant?

DSC_0012

 

See what I got a few days ago? Thanks dad for the deodorant! First, he did not get me because I stink! I actually use lots of perfume daily, haha! He had some extra laying around, therefore he gave me. Now I have a dilemma on whether which to use, Gucci Guilty or Escape by Calvin Klein.

Deodorant

I might as well take this opportunity to talk about deodorant. Should guys wear deodorant? I know the answer seemed obvious, but I know people who don’t wear it. Let me tell you my personal opinion on this topic.

Male often have a strong body odour which could be a NO for most female. The hair under the armpits also trap sweats and the smell would repel anyone away! I am sure that was why the deodorant was invented. Deodorant basically is to remove the smell to keep you smelling fresh throughout the day.

However, one of the main reason people would not want to use deodorant is that it block pores which would bring harm to the skin. I would say this is also a factor that got me hesitant in using it.

Source from theStir.

Deodorants are safe, according to the FDA:

  • The FDA issued a final rule in June 2003 establishing conditions under which over-the-counter (OTC) antiperspirants are generally recognized as safe and effective, and are not misbranded. The final rule establishes allowable ingredients and labeling for the products. (Translation: The mainstream stuff at CVS is FDA-approved.)

But some experts say deodorants are not safe at all:

  • Christine Harlow, a.k.a. “The Ingredients Investigator,” who has been researching the safety of the ingredients in common personal care products since 1991, says most deodorant isn’t safe and is loaded with toxic chemicals.

You guys be the judge!

Since we are in this topic, why don’t I talk about the difference in both spray and stick deodorant. Pros and cons on both this deodorant: (from my perspective)

Stick deodorant:

Pros:

  • No need for ventilation. You can use a stick deodorant anywhere and needn’t worry about inhaling the fumes.
  • No streaks. Back in the day, this stuff left marks on your clothing. Nowadays it doesn’t.

Cons:

It’s thick. It may not seem that way right now, but if you switch to light and airy spray, you will think stick deodorant is downright archaic and dense.

Spray deodorant:

Pros:

  • This stuff feels nice and silky on your skin! Won’t make you feel like you’ve smeared lard all over yourself.
  • The mist isn’t nearly as bad as it used to be and makes you feel quite fresh. (Although, obviously, you should still use it in a ventilated area and be sure pets and children aren’t underfoot at the time.)

Cons:

Depending on brand, some spray doesn’t make you feel like there’s an effect on you and it actually finish quite fast!

For me, I use deodorant and perfume depends on the occasion. Most time, I just put quite a huge amount of perfume because I am using Fierce by Abercrombie and Fitch and I love the smell. I actually scare that deodorant might be harmful therefore the seldom usage of it. What do you guys think? All info here are base on my opinion, drop your opinion and let me know!

Night Out 1

Ever question what to wear for a night out drinking with your friends? I find guys won’t usually give much thought into dressing for a night out. Usually it’s just a jeans and t-shirt or polo. For me, I would definitely consider what I wear especially for night activities. It won’t hurt putting a little bit more effort dressing to bars and clubs.

I suggest putting on a pair of chinos for a night. I admit it’s not easy to match and most of the time I’m figuring what shirt to match my colour chinos, but a black shirt or t-shirt seldom would go wrong.

Shoe: Thrift Shop

Watch: Calvin Klein

It’s amazing sometimes what thrift shop are able to offer. I was glad I went Bangkok earlier this year and got a look at some of the stuff in thrift shops. Surprisingly, it’s design are not bad at all and it’s cheap, therefore more quantity to get! I definitely recommend guys to check out thrift shop for cheap clothing once in a while. Hope I inspired you to wear something rather than t-shirt and jeans on nights out. What’s your opinion on it? There’s definitely more to come on these topics.
