I feel like it is so appropriate at this moment to talk about expectations and assumptions. Everyone has them but not everyone voices them. When we add in social media of any sort, we finally have a place to put these down and say our piece on things. What I guess has been bothering me a lot lately is the constant assumptions by people because they have no idea of a situation. I honestly believe that there are three sides to every story and the facts become nothing but a screwed view of what they believe happened on their end. The assumption that everyone should be completely perfect. It is “ok” for others to make mistakes until it has to do with yourself and then everyone should just be perfect. The guilty comments start flooding in like the “How could you” one which I have hear people say frequently. I am guilty of this one myself. It is only “ok” for others to make a mistake when you can easily walk away from a situation and have no guilt or shame yourself. The real kicker is when people chime in with their two cents. Every situation is different… every reason is different… how can we possibly give “advice” or comments on a situation that you can’t possibly understand unless you are present yourself? This is something I have struggled with, because its very natural to give an opinion. That is what it is right? Then… if that is true let’s turn the situation around and make the person you’re talking about be your best friend. Then it is a different situation right? You may have the same opinion, but because there are some extra things you now know or you didn’t know then the opinion will come out as some kind of support for the person you care for. The take from? Stop assuming everything and just ask someone or be direct and let us all stop talking about others behind their backs. If you have something to say then just say it! I am going to say that I would rather go shopping at some of these great places than worry about what your assumptions are of me. Shopping therapy at its best! TOOTLES

I haven’t had too many men pose with me in my blog and when they have, it has been brief and not many details. I have had male bloggers before as well, but that never worked out long term either. I am happy to say that my friend Doriel will be helping me on a more permanent basis here and I am thrilled! The men in SL really lack that extra something when it comes to fashion, and I hope we can help with that.

The Menswear Fashion Week has something for every man, that’s what is so great about it!It caters to every type of guy out there. It is to be expected that the quality of clothing created by these designers. They are the top of the top when it comes to male clothes and they are all in the same place right now. Heaven for the person who hates running around the grid. Makes me feel like a little kid in a candy store. One of the goodies that caught my eye was this amazing drape shirt from ::GB::. I didn’t even have tot try the demo, which is something I never do. I usually always check before buying but not this time. I knew I had to have it no matter how it fit. Even more walking around this candy store and I came across the Dynasty store. I know they always produce fantastic clothes so this was a no brainier. I decided on these amazing jeans with suspenders which are now my new favorite jeans. I have been wearing them with everything. Also, I picked up this nifty drivers cap from Dynasty which is not something I normally would buy. I had to talk myself into it but I am glad I did. For more amazing clothes head down to Menswear Fashion Week, just watch your Lindens… easy to spend there.
Trying to be a good guy in SL can sometimes have it’s downsides! For example, people walk right over you sometimes because in SL there might not be any consensuses compared to RL… making it hard for us good guys to get noticed. Most women want a confident man who will treat them right and know where to plant his two feet, but just sometimes a girl comes along and she falls in love with your charm and your stupid jokes and doesn’t care how confident you are just who you are. If your happy with yourself and the way you are then she will be as well. Fella’s, you don’t find many of these rare gems out there so grab hold and never let go because she’s the one. You have to look good to get this amazing women so check out Menswear Fashion Week 2014. It’s in full swing and all the best Male fashion designers out there are getting together and giving you want you need. You will surely stand out as your own individual self in a sea of men that are kind of starting to blend in. One of the designer at MWFW is Blvck Anchor and their amazing suit adds that little bit of class to your wardrobe. The biggest issue I had was picking a colour that I liked the most. How do you end up picking the colours for you? Sometimes I think about what I already have and other times I consider which one actually looks the best. Also, make sure you stop by MR.c for some great new hairstyles. Changing up your hair is always a great way to spruce up any look.
Sometimes I think you just have to sit alone and let your thoughts catch up to you. We all lead busy lives, 1000’s of thoughts rushing through our head but no time to think about them. Taking that well needed 10-15mins to just sit outside in the sunshine and focus on what really matters can do you a world of good. Let it clear your mind and open it to different outcomes and possibilities. Once you but your mind to it, hard work and dedication, you can achieve anything and don’t let anyone tell you otherwise. That’s what I feel Image factory has done with this fantastic hoodie and jeans. They have put hard work and dedication into them and it really does show. They are beautiful to look at from every angle. Just one of those days where you need to relax and think about what you have done and what your going to do. Pick these amazing clothes up at the Menswear Fashion Week 2014 don’t miss out!
Don’t you just love when Designers make full outfits and sell them as a whole? It makes our lives easier instead of searching through so many items in our inventory’s trying to find that perfect pair of jeans or shorts or whatever to match the top. When a designer gives you a full outfit, everything already matches like clockwork so there is no hassle needed. That’s what TS has done with this outfit “Brad-Sky blue” it flows all the way through the outfit. Nothing seems off about it… It’s a perfect match really. You have got your stylish, smart button down shirt with the nice rolled up cuffs. This is something that I am a huge fan of because it brings a little bit of my RL into my SL. Then you have the casual black cargo shorts that look great. They even have little clips on the pockets. I love designers that go to extra lengths to add little extras to their clothes. Lastly, you have the Shoes which are some nice canvas sneakers. You can’t go wrong with canvas sneakers with whatever you wear. The designer put all these together for you but the best part is you can mix and match if you would prefer to wear something a little different. Say I wanted different shorts or shoes or a different colored shirt. Easy to mix and match with other things. This outfit from TS can be picked up at the Menswear Fashion Week 2014 till the 3rd of May. Hurry while you can, don’t want to miss out on all the amazing menswear. You would be bonkers if you did!
Nothing is better than a fresh, crisp well fitting suit. It certainly separates the men from the boys. It shows that you have style and class which is hard to find in men these days. If you make an effort in how you dress it’s sure to make a good impression. I’m making an effort than this suit from “Just because”. This suit to me says that you can be elegant but still simple while not being too flashy. Just screams plain old fashioned class. Personally, I only own two suits, which is not enough if I’m being honest. The more variety of suits the better it is. Most of us have enough outfits that we don’t have to look the same all the time, but what about suits? When you put a suit on is it the same one that you put on the last time you needed it? Why not be different each time? You would think you could wear a suit like this just on special occasions, but no that’s the great thing about SL, you can wear what ever you want anywhere you want, and no one cares. Like today, I was wearing my suit while going shopping for beachwear. Who cares what people think of you as long as your happy doing it and not hurting anyone all is fine. Menswear Fashion Week 2014 is soon upon us! Head down there on the 25th April until the 3rd May. While there, try out this suit plus so many more amazing designs that you will find to add some variety to your wardrobe.
When I was walking around Cosmopolitan Sales Room today checking out what they have to offer, I came across this little gem from Gojo, these wonderful pair of hitops. As far as i know, they only come in one design and one colour but the best part is they are FREE! All you have to do is join the Cosmopolitan Sales Room group and you can have these shoes for free plus many more group gifts put out every new round, which is every 2 weeks. It’s nice to have an extra set of shoes to add to your collection. I’m sure I’ll be fitting them into some of the outfits I wear. Hope you enjoy!
Being a male blogger in SL can have it’s challenges, but it can be very rewarding as well. People also say male fashion does not get half as much attention as women here and yes that may be true, but the thing you need to look at is quality over quantity. Women have tons and tons of options to choose from. I am personally glad that I don’t have so many options because I have a hard time choosing in the first place. You still need to be very careful when looking. Not all clothing is created equal so it helps that The Menswear Fashion Week is approaching. You will be able to check out all the best Men’s fashion has to offer at the up coming event. One designer that is going to be there is “Just because”. I am showing off there amazing Dash shorts and Jordan shirt, both of these beautiful creations are perfect for them warm days out at the beach. Both come in many different colours, this even makes me feel spoiled for choice. I’m going to have no lindens left but so many amazing designs 🙂 every man needs to check out this event, emphasis on NEEDS!!
There are so many amazing designs at Cosmopolitan Sales Room this round that I had to get help showing them all… On Liz, we have the cute soo soo cute Kaithleens Kawai Dress. It’s so beautiful and yes I’m still talking about the dress here. This is a must have for any women, hell if they had it in a Man’s version I’d even buy it it’s that good. On me I’m wearing another one of gods creations, I mean the brilliant ::JesyDream:: Jean jacket. So much detail and effort has gone into making this jacket, as all their clothes, so no surprise there the jacket comes in two different colours making the choice for you just that little bit easier. I’m also wearing another new favorite designer of mine Etham. I’m wearing their Track pants they have quickly become my go to relaxing clothes. I love the fact you can have them rolled down or up. Also, ladies they are unisex, so buy a pair for you and your man at the same time. Same goes for you fellas too, nothing say I love you more than a matching track suit and maybe a fine dinner afterwards to say sorry for the terrible joke I just made… All these super amazing clothes can be picked up from Cosmopolitan sales room. One great mall for all your shopping needs.
