The 30-day Ab Challenge has been the talk of the office this past week, so much so that it’s made its way all the way up to the 5th floor of our office where JustFab resides, and to the ears of our greatly talented videographer, Aaron. As a recent addition to the lunchtime gym crew, [...]

About Me: From the City of Churches to the City of Angels! I have recently made the big move over to LA after far too many years of study in what now seems like the tiny town of Adelaide. I’m a keen writer and researcher, interested in everything from fashion, to sport, pop culture, entertainment and of course my manly “Facial Fuel” and “Urban Camouflage”.

So a challenge has been laid down to the men of the office to work on our physiques, specifically the abdominal region. Normally I wouldn’t be open to being objectified and treated like some kind of experiment, but seeing as summer is fast approaching it’s a damn good idea. This is no April fools [...]
I take it as my responsibility on this blog to speak to my fellow men and open their eyes to the world of grooming in a way that won’t spook them like a kangaroo in the headlights. For instance, we’re not seeing many male products out there that speak of probiotic serums and vegetable cleaners [...]
Now I know my last post concerning the trends I question caused a few raised eyebrows (Jenna Kulp, will we see the TOMS wedges this summer?). But with every fashion faux pas, there are always the timeless few that we can never get enough of. Like the ever-impressive Kristie Brinkley, here are my 5 trends [...]
Over the last few seasons we’ve seen a number of styles and trends that can only be summed up as fashion faux pas. 2012 itself came with a number of instant trends that may have seemed reputable at first, but it must be remembered that this is a new year and we will no longer [...]
It seems as though every few weeks I’m posting about the latest—not necessarily greatest—treatments and procedures in that quest for eternal youth. Well I haven’t let you down, better said salons across China haven’t let you down, as the flame facial has recently hit the mediasphere. They say that stress can induce fine lines and [...]
I’ll be the first to admit that I’ve got a little problem when it comes to grooming products. It’s just one of those perks of the job, plus being drastically outnumbered in the office I seem to be the first point of call when it comes to new male products, so who am I to [...]
When my old man first taught me to shave, one of the biggest highlights was being able to use a shaving brush. There was just something about it that screamed I’m a man and I need to lather correctly to shave my bristles. You watch any movie back in the 40′s and 50′s, especially westerns, [...]
I have no idea why it’s been happening to me lately, but I have gotten terribly sick at least three times in the last 2 months. I understand that pushing the limits at New Years and a long weekend trip to Vegas is always going to test the body, but without fail, whenever I’ve had [...]
Last week, I was lucky enough to receive an invite to a brunch kicking off The Oscars weekend, thanks to the The Art of Shaving. Enviably located in the heart of Beverly Hills, The Art of Shaving is like no other barbershop, grooming parlor or salon I've ever seen. Granted, I did come with a [...]
