Manscaping is important.  If you take care of yourself down there, your lady friends will appreciate it.  If you don’t, you need to head over to Manscaped.com now and pick up their $99 “Perfect Package” and get to work.  I had the opportunity to trial one myself, and found it an essential kit every man should have.

QUICK REVIEW:

Quality: B+
Utility: A
Value: B
Overall: B+
The Manscaping.com Perfect Package comes with everything you need to groom yourself properly.  With the Perfect Package, you receive:
THE PLOW safety razor
LAWN MOWER electric hair trimmer
CROP CLEANSER moisturizing hair and body wash
CROP PRESERVER all-in-one deodorant, antiperspirant and moisturizer
CROP REVIVER body toner and refresher
MAGIC MAT to catch trimmings and easy disposal
THE SHED travel bag
THE SHEARS nail kit
Aside from some floss, a toothbrush, and some toothpaste, this kit comes with everything you need as a man to get yourself together in the morning.  I was impressed with the quality of “The Plow” and the “Lawn Mower”.  These grooming tools are made from high quality materials and will last a long time.  “The Shears” nail kit was also solid.  The “Crop Cleanser” hair and body wash smelled great, as did the “Crop Preserver” and “Crop Reviver”.  My only knock on the Perfect Package was the bag it came it.  It had a cheap feel and look to it.  I would have prefered a bag with less sheen and maybe a more flat leather look and feel as opposed to the texture this one had.  It felt like a weird deflated football.  Tom Brady would love it.
At $99 you’re making a commitment to bettering your grooming habits.  It may seem pricey, but if you parted the bag out and bought each item individually, you’re going to end up paying more.  So if you want to get yourself right and make your woman (or man, TSB doesn’t discriminate) happy, head over to Manscaped.com and pick up one for yourself.  They even offer just the “Nuts & Bolts” if you only want the Lawn Mower and Crop Preserver.

Thanks to Kellogg’s I had the chance to speak with NBA All-Star and Chicago Bulls player Jimmy Butler the other day.  Jimmy is participating in the Buckets for Breakfast campaign, where Kellogg’s is encouraging everyone to show off their trick shots to fight childhood hunger.  I asked Jimmy some hard-hitting questions, and he didn’t pull any punches.   Read the rest of this entry »

Top 10 Jordan Releases of 2016

December 29, 2016 by
Air Jordan 11 Low Navy Gum

The Jordan XI Low Navy Gum was one of my personal favorites, but doesn’t make this list

As I alluded to in my last post, I’m a sneakerhead.  I’m not big-time like the professional athletes and celebrities, but my collection fluctuates anywhere from 50-75 pairs of shoes at a time.  I buy, collect, and resell sneakers as a hobby.  My wife hates it, but it’s nothing new.  I’ve been doing this for years.

2016 was a great year for sneakerheads.  Just about every week (more like every other day) there was a hot release, whether it be Nike, Jordan, Adidas, Reebok, or Under Armour (OK, so maybe not the last two so much, but they made an effort).  While going through my daily sneaker blog routine, I came across a 2016 Top 10 Jordan Releases article from another site and threw up in my mouth a little.  Half the list was trash, and the other half seemed to be out of order.  I won’t throw them under the bus (or give them free advertising by dropping their name), but if you follow me on Twitter you know who I’m talking about.  So I decided to make my own list.  Those Navy/Gum 11 lows get an honorable mention.  Without further ado, here’s my Top 10 Jordan Releases of 2016: Read the rest of this entry »

Selling on eBay is a hassle.  Type in “eBay sucks” on Google and 953,000 results will pop up. In early 2008, eBay changed their feedback policy to prohibit sellers from leaving negative feedback for buyers. Since the overhaul, eBay has become a free-for-all where there is little to no recourse for deadbeat buyers. It’s like the Wild West, except I can’t challenge the deadbeat to a duel in Town Square at dawn. If an eBay user wins an item and doesn’t want to pay for it, no problem. They can request to cancel an order or simply ghost the seller. Sellers have to wait 2 days before filing an unpaid item claim in order to get their fees reimbursed when a buyer does not pay. Ebay offers an automatic unpaid item assistant, but the earliest that kicks in is 4 days after the auction end. More often than not, I’m left with my dick in my hand item, no cash, and precious time wasted. Read the rest of this entry »

Sign up for Ebates here and receive $10 free

Now that I’ve got my shameless referral link plug out of the way, let’s get down to business.  If you’ve watched TV at all recently, there’s a good chance you’ve seen one or several Ebates commercials like the video above.  Ebates promises to pay you money for shopping online.  Sounds too good to be true, right? Well, it isn’t.  I was once a skeptic like the people in the video.  I figured there had to be a catch, or Ebates was a scam altogether.  Turns out there isn’t, and it’s not.  Ebates is legit.  They’ll send you a check for basically adding one step to your online shopping process.
