2015 year end review It’s that time of year again, well ,I’m a little late doing my annual review, as I was overworked trying to get a few things out of the way before year end, so here it is, my 2015 year end review. New Job 2015 was an eventful year for me, at least professionally speaking.  I changed jobs at the end of the summer.  There are many reasons why, but the principal reason, there was no longer a work life balance that was maintainable for me.  I prefer not to dwell on it… Read Article →

2014, year in review Happy New Year everyone. It is again that time of the year, when we look back on our accomplishments, failures, dreams and hopes. site down check Well this is my 2014, year in review. This time last year, I had a certain set of goals, and things that I hoped to achieve in 2014. I wanted 2014 to be a year that included some firsts, and some changes. If nothing else, 2014 taught me a lot about myself, both good and bad. First lets recap some of the goals I had… Read Article →

2013 in review: taking a moment Well its the new year, so Happy New Year everyone. I try to do this every year, not always on this blog, but at least in general to review how things went in the previous year, what happens and such. Social/community involvement This past year has seen a few milestones, I changed companies, leaving a fantastic organisation that was SidLee Technologies, and joined a new startup with some old friends.  I will write in the coming months about the startup, but this isn’t the time for it. Like this?… Read Article →

On August 25th, my wife and I decided to try a new restaurant for our date night.  We typically go to the same restaurants, and felt like we wanted something new. There is a new Rouge Boeuf that opened near our house a couple months ago, and it is usually pretty packed ( typical sign of a good restaurant, lots of people want to go ).  One of the reasons we opted for this restaurant, was the “bring your own wine”.  We typically have some decent bottles of wine at home, and getting wine at… Read Article →

So as some of you know, this year I converted to a more traditional wet shaving routing. This includes using a brush, traditional soaps/cream, a Double-Edge (DE) safety razor, and even a straight razor on occasions. I’ve been meaning to try and use a shaving oil. It is exactly what it sounds like, an oil that you rub onto your beard, and use as a lubricant to shave with. This is the first shaving oil that I have tried, and to be honest, I can’t say i’m impressed. Now this may have nothing to do… Read Article →

About the product: This is the second RealShaving Co. product that I am reviewing.  It is still part of the “Step 1” range that makes up the “Pre-Shave” routine, preparing your bread, and skin for the actual shave.  This product is designed to soften the hair about to be shaved by warming the hair, and moistening the whiskers.  This is also the second product of this “type”, the other being Gillette’s Thermal Face Scrub.  I could not get a decent picture of the sample bottle( being a small bottle and me not having a decent… Read Article →

This is the first of my product reviews for Real Shaving Company’s product line that was sent to me by their PR division.  One of the very attractive selling points to me is the availability of this product.  It is priced right and locally available to me.  I love shopping online as much as the next guy, but what I don’t like is running out of something, and then having to wait 2 weeks to get a replacement for it, I am after only human, with the attention span of an adult caring for three… Read Article →

This is the follow up to the post is wrote about 2 months ago when I first received my tub of bluebeard’s revenge shaving cream. The reason for waiting so long was to give it a proper run through, and to properly test their beard reduction claim. They claim that after prolonged ( 30 to 60 days ) of continuous usage of their Bluebeard’s revenge shaving cream you will see a noticeable reduction in density, coarseness and length of your beard follicles. I am a every other day shaver, more that I can tolerate it… Read Article →

About 2 weeks ago Real Shaving company ( @realshavingUK @realshavingUS ) sent out a request for bloggers willing to test out and then write about their products.  This seems to be a trending theme  for companies trying to reduce their marketing costs and get their brands known around social media(maybe more on that subject later). I volunterred since i’ve seen these products around ( they are available at our local version of shopper’s drugmart’s, Pharmaprix ) in Montreal, and i’ve been looking at them for a while wanting to try them, the prices are really… Read Article →

BlueBeards revenge shaving cream

This is a follow up to a post from a couple weeks back regarding a product review for BlueBeard’s Revenge.  We my parcel arrived this week ( thanks to the long delays in the Canadian’s postal system due to the strike and subsequent lockout, topic of a previous post as well ). So far I have used it twice,  each with a different brush.  The first one was with the Doubloon brush that they so kindly sent to me as well ( thanks again ), the second, my goto brush, a pure badger Vulvix brush….
