The Men Suit Styles You Need To Know About

November 30, 2020


By Milda Urbonaite


Even though we're spending most of our days in comfortable jeans or sweatpants at the moment, these strange times will pass.

And when that happens will be thrilled to get back to looking sharp and finding ways to refresh our wardrobes.

Whether it's a wedding, business conference, or a day at the office, a suit is a staple in every man's wardrobe.

There are a few main styles that will work on different occasions, and we've got you covered on them all.

Here are the men's suit styles you need to know.
 

Classic suit 


As the name indicates, this is your basic, classic suit for many occasions.

It's not complicated, unprovocative, and great for every day at the office or meetings.

Classic suits are usually comfortable and breathable, and you can easily pair their jackets with something more casual like chinos for a smart-casual look.

If there's one suit you'll buy - this is it.

Slim-fit suit


If you've been to an event where you saw a stylish guy and thought - why does he look different, he was probably wearing a slim fit suit.

These suits are fitting to form, are narrow at the chest and waist, and create a modern look.

Don't get confused. Slim fit doesn't mean you need to be super skinny to wear it. If you feel self-conscious, this style can add sleekness and make you look put together.

Generally, slim fit style suits are worn to more casual events and occasions.

Unstructured suit


According to ManOfMany.com, by removing the interior padding, the unstructured blazer breaks free from conformity and constraint to deliver a soft fit and somewhat laid back aesthetic.

The unstructured suit is made from one layer material and is an excellent option for those who want to look put-together yet comfortable and casual.

The key is finding a high-quality suit made with proper fabrics as there's a risk of looking messy and unkempt! So put in those hours at the mall for the best result!
 

Summer suit


Summer comes with a conundrum when thinking about formal wear. The heat makes it unbearable to wear traditional suits, and men usually avoid them if possible. Or sweat bullets and curse under their breath.

Luckily, today there are some great options for those sunny hot days.

Lightweight suits cut from light and airy fabrics such as silk, linen, fine merino wool, and in neutral pale colors are all the rage. These are a lifesaver for all those summer weddings and holiday dinners at fancy restaurants.

Still, let's be honest: even the most comfortable suit won't be as good as the soft t shirts for men by FreshCleanTees.com. We're just telling it like it is!

Winter suit


Just like you need a summer suit for a hot day, a warm wool suit can save you during those freezing winter months.

Wool is, obviously, warm and comfortable and not as restricting as the classic tweed beloved by university professors.

It's a natural fabric, so it's breathable and eco-friendly. You should skip the synthetic cloth in this case!

A warm suit can also save you from wearing those heavy and puffy overcoats.

Tuxedo


The fanciest among the family is a tuxedo, and it's a must for most black-tie events.

Some men aren't comfortable in a tuxedo, but it's all about practice and confidence. Trust us!

A classic tuxedo comes with a single-breasted jacket with jetted pockets and features peak lapels or shawl collar. TheBlackTux.com recommends avoiding notched lapels and reminds that a bow tie is a must.

If you don't want the "penguin" look, you can thank your lucky stars and celebrities for making different color tuxedos popular. If the event you're attending is not too stiff-lipped, opt for an aubergine, grey, or navy tux

Dianabol Injection Cycle: A Guide for Fitness Enthusiasts


When bodybuilders are trying to improve the effectiveness of their workouts, they can use a variety of anabolic steroids. A dianabol injection is a popular steroid that can really complement your hard work at the gym and the fitness diet that you eat.

But how much do athletes know about the dianabol injection cycle? Many need a well-researched guide especially now that steroids are highly regulated and controlled by the law. Appropriate use will enhance muscle gain, promote recovery, and burn fat while keeping the side effects at bay.

Understanding What a Dianabol Injection Is

Dianabol is an anabolic steroid that also has androgenic effects as well. It is very common among athletes to promote a muscular physique by boosting testosterone hormones in the body. The injection is thought to be better especially for athletes who get nauseated by oral Dbol.

It is easy to inject the steroid yourself if you know the dose. It will keep your body in an anabolic state and reduce the androgenic effects of steroids such as acne and loss of hair.

Since a dianabol injection, just like many other steroids, has side effects, it is recommended for it to be cycled. This gives the user the benefits that we are going to discuss shortly while reducing the side effects for the body and giving the body enough time to recover from any that might have occurred.

Dianabol Injection Cycle

One option athletes have is to take the dianabol injection only for four weeks. They will inject an average of 40 mg every day and make sure that they work out effectively and eat a supportive diet during this period. According to health and fitness experts, they should not exceed a period of 6 weeks since Dbol is toxic to internal organs such as the liver when used for longer.

From another angle, fitness enthusiasts might want to use a dianabol injection together with other steroids in the cycle. For this, it is ideal to reduce the daily intake to about 20 mg that is split during the day to ensure that the blood is well saturated. The duration of the cycle should be maintained.

Benefits of a Dianabol Injection

Dianabol is a testosterone booster with numerous fitness benefits. Generally, these benefits resemble many other legit anabolic steroids on the market. Common ones include but are not limited to the following.

· Muscle growth – Within a few weeks of use, athletes start to gain more muscles and weight. This is caused by increased protein synthesis in the body.

· Fat loss – When the dianabol injection is combined with heavy workouts, the fat in the body starts to disappear. This effect comes together with that of muscle growth.

· More workout strength – It is the dream of every fitness enthusiast to have more strength so that they can achieve their workout goals. And a dianabol injection helps them achieve this when used in the right way.

Conclusion

Those who use a dianabol injection should be very careful to avoid side effects of misuse such as internal organ damage and cardio-related effects among others. When it is cycled, these health effects can be kept at bay. All the best!

The Pros and Cons of a Destination Wedding

November 25, 2020


If you are planning your wedding and are unsure of the location you should choose, you aren’t alone. Every soon-to-be-married couple goes through the same thing; the location and venue of your wedding will offset the rest of the event. Go too big, and you might feel overwhelmed by the size and scale of the place; go too small, and it might not feel like a wedding at all. Deciding on the location of your wedding is one of the most important decisions you will make in the lead up to the big day.

What is a destination wedding?

One increasingly popular option that engaged couples are choosing is a destination wedding. A destination wedding means marrying outside of where you are from, choosing to go abroad to celebrate the big day in an epic way. Some examples of destination weddings include:
  • A beach wedding in warm countries like Barbados or Hawaii
  • A clifftop wedding looking out onto the crashing ocean in Italy
  • A grand wedding in a stunning Scottish castle
  • A Disneyland wedding in Paris or Orlando
  • A rural farm wedding in the south of France
There are definite pros and cons to destination weddings, and in this blog you will find a detailed guide to both sides of the story. Let’s get started: here are the pros and cons of a destination wedding.

The Pros of a Destination Wedding

Let’s start with the positives, shall we? There are many wonderful aspects to celebrating your wedding abroad at an amazing location - and here they are, in a handy list.

1.Your wedding will be extraordinary.

That’s it, right there - when you have a destination wedding, it will be extraordinary. An epic destination means your wedding will be memorable, awe-inspiring and brilliant. Those are facts.

2. Your pictures will be stunning.

One of the crucial aspects to your wedding is the photographs. These photographs will be gazed at on your mantelpiece forever, so you couldn’t be blamed for wanting them to be incredible. If you choose an amazing destination in which to host your big day, the photographs will reflect it. A one-of-a-kind location allows your wedding photographer to work their magic, incorporating the natural beauty of the place into your fabulous photographs. Picture you and your fiancé posing on a white sandy beach at sunset, then picture that photograph on your wall forever. Perfection, right?

3. Your honeymoon starts early!

When you have a destination wedding, it’s essentially like starting your honeymoon early. You get to arrive at the location, spend a few days settling in and welcoming guests while exploring the beautiful place, have your beautiful wedding day and then continue your vacation from there! This is a big plus; you can spend the few days before your wedding relaxing in a gorgeous place and soaking in the moment.

4. You get to visit a once-in-a-lifetime place.

If you’re going all-out on your wedding plans and booking a destination wedding, one of the wonderful things about it is that you get to visit somewhere you’ve always wanted to go. This simply adds more joy to an already joyous day, making the whole wedding experience more exciting and memorable.

5. Your wedding will mark a real change of scene.

Getting married locally is nice, but if you book a destination wedding the whole occasion will feel like more of a landmark. You don’t want to risk feeling underwhelmed on your big day, and with a destination wedding the chance of feeling underwhelmed is pretty much zero! If you want an exciting, all-encompassing, breathtaking day, a destination wedding will deliver on those wishes.

The Cons of a Destination Wedding

Although a destination wedding is a hugely popular choice that many people go for, it does have some downsides. Here are a few of the cons of booking a destination wedding instead of having a traditional local wedding.

1. The price.

All weddings are expensive, but a destination wedding is likely to be far more so than a wedding closer to home. The basic costs of traveling abroad apply, plus the usual wedding expenses that could even be heightened by the destination of your choice. It is likely that hiring a space in a landmark destination will be costly, and might even come with pricey restrictions, licences and more. In addition, you will have to mark more time away from work for the occasion. The cost is something to consider when looking at destination weddings; make sure you budget your big day before deciding on your location.

2. Accessibility for your guests.

Unless you have a big enough budget to pay for flights and accommodation for all of your guests, the chances are this wedding will cost your guests a pretty penny, not just you. Asking friends and family to book time off from work, travel to another country and put themselves up in a hotel for your wedding can cause complications - if they can’t finance this, then they’ll miss the day altogether. This is a tricky conundrum for soon-to-be-married couples who want to share their big day with friends who may not be able to make it.

3. Destination weddings can feel impersonal.

On an emotional level, a destination wedding can feel a little detached from your real life. If you’re from Kansas City, for example, marrying in a venue in Kansas City will fill your day with personal touches. You might pass your favorite restaurant on your way to the venue and think about all the fun times you’ve had there with your fiancé - and while a fancy destination provides excitement and awe, you can’t put a price on memories.

Final Thoughts

Overall, the location of your big day is down to you and you alone. Nobody should make you feel bad about your decision; after all, this is the one day that you get to be totally spoiled! If you have been considering a destination wedding with your fiancé, use this pro and con list to measure out your options and choose the right wedding for you.

NO sugar added; only sweetened with a little stevia. This is preferable to most “chewable” vitamin C products that typically are loaded with lots of sugar.

Zinc Lozenjets + Vitamin C
Zinc is an essential mineral required by more than 300 enzymes for the support of multiple systems and functions in the human body. In addition, studies have indicated that zinc promotes recovery from the common cold and related symptoms.

The Croods: A New Age Hits Theaters November 25th + Giveaway! #RWM #CroodsNewAge

November 20, 2020

This post is in partnership with Review Wire Media
Hey there friends! I have some wonderful news to share with you all! The world's first family is back with an adventure for the Stone Ages! The Croods: A New Age hits theaters on November 25, 2020. 


The Croods have survived their fair share of dangers and disasters, from fanged prehistoric beasts to surviving the end of the world, but now they will face their biggest challenge of all: another family. The Croods need a new place to live. So, the first prehistoric family sets off into the world in search of a safer place to call home. When they discover an idyllic walled-in paradise that meets all their needs, they think their problems are solved … except for one thing. Another family already lives there: the Bettermans. The Bettermans (emphasis on the “better”)—with their elaborate treehouse, amazing inventions, and irrigated acres of fresh produce—are a couple of steps above the Croods on the evolutionary ladder. When they take the Croods in as the world’s first houseguests, it isn’t long before tensions escalate between the cave family and the modern family. Just when all seems lost, a new threat will propel both families on an epic adventure outside the safety of the wall, one that will force them to embrace their differences, draw strength from each other and forge a future together.


CAST/FILMMAKERS: 
You will recognize the voices of stars that reprise their Croods roles. They are, Nicolas Cage as Grug Crood, Catherine Keener as Ugga Crood, Emma Stone as their daughter, Eep; Ryan Reynolds as Eep’s boyfriend, Guy; Clark Duke as Thunk and Cloris Leachman as Gran. The new voices are Peter Dinklage as Phil Betterman, Leslie Mann ( as Hope Betterman, and Kelly Marie Tran (Star Wars: Episode VIII-The Last Jedi) as their daughter, Dawn.


Our family was thrilled to get the chance to watch an advanced screen in your home and also receive a really cool swag movie pack to go along with it! I can not believe the 1st Croods movie was released in 2013! Our family enjoyed it so much and loved The Croods just as much! It really is a movie the whole family can enjoy together!



Remember The Croods: A New Age opens in theaters Wednesday, November 25th and if you click here you can see more showtimes near you. Don’t forget, you can also enter below to win 2 Fandango gift codes redeemable for 2 tickets each.
  • The Fandango codes are good for in-theater showings of the film, not FandangoNow.
  • Tickets are specific for CROODS.
  • Gift cards are valid until 1/31/21 or until CROODS is no longer in theaters, whichever comes first.

Is Pandemic Dating Okay?

November 17, 2020

Long-term couples have had to put a lot of plans on hold during the pandemic. Some couples have preferred postponing their wedding day until it’s safe to throw a big party with relatives and friends. 

Indeed, social distance restrictions have made it tricky to enjoy the sweetness of love life. Yet that doesn’t mean you can’t get married during a pandemic. On the contrary, you can throw a more intimate party. Couples who booked large venues have chosen to downsize their party, planning a small wedding with only a few selected friends and relatives. Others have embraced their romantic sides and decided to elope, making their wedding day as unique as possible. Indeed, the pandemic offers the perfect opportunity for a memorable and remote wedding that feels magical. 


But while couples who already know each other can adjust their plans to the pandemic, those who are getting to know each other need to get creative to establish their relationship. Dating during the pandemic is not impossible. But it goes without saying: Things are different on the dating scene with covid fears. How can you make dating work during a difficult time? You need to make health a priority, both limiting infection and supporting your emotional needs. Here are some tips to make pandemic dating possible.

How do I meet new people?

There’s no denying it. The opportunities to meet new people have changed. If you are more confident meeting people in a face-to-face environment, such as by joining new classes or attending an event at a local bar or venue, chances are you can’t fall back into your dating routine. However, this doesn’t mean you can’t meet new people. Dating apps and sites have become a romantic force during the pandemic, especially as more and more singles reach out to the digital world to make connections. 


It becomes essential to establish a trust baseline on a dating site. Thankfully, you’ll find that a lot of people are cautious about face-to-face interactions. Therefore, you may find updated profiles that mention socially distant behaviors and covid concerns. Most people are upfront about their covid approach, so you can easily post reckless individuals. 


Socially distant meetings are a thing

What’s the next step once you’ve connected on a dating app? The typical progression would be to plan a first date. However, at a time where restaurants are shutting down to avoid health risks, it may not be safe or easy to proceed with an actual meeting. Yet, that doesn’t mean you can’t set up time together to get to know each other better. While the typical dinner or coffee date may not be suitable for now, you can arrange a cyber coffee on a video call. Indeed, tools such as Facetime and Zoom are playing a significant role in day-to-day life. So, why not make them part of your dating scene too? You can get creative with a video chat, using it to join a dance party together from your respective living rooms or to share a cup of coffee across the distance. It can help break the ice and start the conversation flowing.

Is it safe to meet IRL?

Health experts advise against forcing physical meetings. However, you can’t date someone online forever. Ideally, before arranging for a meeting at a safe place, you want to have the covid talk. Has your date been covid-conscious and avoided risks in the past? Have they been self-isolated ahead of the meeting to ensure they’re not carrying the virus? Do they have any suspicious symptoms? Have they been around people who could potentially be carriers of the virus? It does seem like an awkward talk, but it is one you want to have when your health is at stake. 


A brief reminder, though, that being covid-safe doesn’t mean you can avoid all the potential consequences of an intimate encounter. If the date has been great and you’ve ended up spending the night together, do make sure you’re on top of your contraception routine. Indeed, pregnancy rates are increasing during the pandemic, as covid fears are taking over contraception worries. If you don’t have the morning after pill, you can get it online easily. Better safe than sorry, as the saying goes. 


There’s been a lot of positivity for couples during the pandemic. It’s important to remember that while dating can feel a little bit awkward in this tough situation, many happy stories can testify that pandemic dating is a great thing. Take, for instance, this young Briton who connected to an American woman on Facebook and is now engaged to her. For young couples who have been isolated together, many have reported that their relationship improved in quarantine. The bottom line: pandemic dating is not just okay; it could even be the way to find your darling!
