1.STOP BITING YOUR NAILS

Screen Shot 2018-03-29 at 6.25.49 PM.png

First off, this is just disgusting. Secondly, it completely kills your nail buds and makes your fingers look hideous. Let me tell you how many girls want to grab your hand if you bite your nails….ZERO.

2. DON’T IGNORE HER

Screen Shot 2018-03-29 at 11.24.54 PM.png

Especially with this new Instagram update, girls can see when was the last time you were active. So if you intentionally ignore her, she’ll know and your chances with her go out the door. Although it might not mean a lot to you, it goes a long way.

3. GET RID OF ALL THAT PLAQUE

Screen Shot 2018-03-29 at 11.31.29 PM.png

Yellow teeth are ugly, yellow teeth with plaque build-up around your teeth is a woman repellant. Want to know why this happens? You’re just careless with your oral routine. Guys..it’s 2018, it’s the year to get rid of all of that nasty plaque. It’s time to invest in a quality toothbrush, specifically an electric toothbrush. It’s 10X more effective for removing plaque than any other manual brush.

Screen Shot 2018-03-29 at 11.32.28 PM.png

I only use the best of the best and that’s the Elements Electric Sonic by DazzlePro. I literally went to the dentist a month ago and after he said “Wow, your teeth are well kept”, he went on and asked me if I used an electric toothbrush. Manual brushes just don’t compare anymore. For example, this Elements toothbrush gives you 40,000 strokes a minute. I dare you to try to match that with a manual toothbrush, you’d be lucky even if you got 300. As always, I wouldn’t recommend something that I don’t use and enjoy, so when I say that it’s a quality product, I mean it. On top of everything, it comes with a UV sanitation station. So, once you’re done, just pop the top off and put it into the station and the UV light will kill 99.99% of all bacteria.

Now, the hard part, this brush retails at $125. However, if you’ve been following me for a while, you know I give the best deal so if you apply code “TMFelements” at checkout, you’ll get 45% off! Click “here” to check it out.

4.TAKE CARE OF YOUR EYEBROWS (BUT DON’T OVER DO IT)

Screen Shot 2018-03-29 at 11.45.55 PM.png

You’ve heard me say it before, you guys need to take care of your eyebrows. You don’t want a bush above your eyes. However, there are certain guys that take this too far. When your eyebrows are way too thin, trust me when I say this but you’re not going to have any woman fall for you.

5.THE “FILTER” GUY

Screen Shot 2018-03-29 at 11.48.24 PM.png

Guys, that flower crown and doggie filter wasn’t meant for you. I’m pretty sure when snapchat came up with these, they weren’t thinking about us men. In other words, don’t use these filters.

6. EXCESSIVELY TIGHT DENIM

Screen Shot 2018-03-29 at 11.51.01 PM.png

Don’t make girls uncomfortable, they don’t want to see your crotch bulging out of your pants. Do you see the common thread in some of these? When you look too feminine, woman are going to start pushing themselves away from you. They want to date a masculine guy.

7. WHEN YOU DON’T INTRODUCE YOUR GIRLFRIEND

Screen Shot 2018-03-30 at 12.05.26 AM.png

I’m going to tell you know before it starts a fight, every time you meet new people and you’re with your girl. You better introduce her. A huge pet peeve more most girls is when you’re not proud enough to introduce her to your friends/colleagues/family.

8. A GUY WITH NO ASPIRATIONS

Screen Shot 2018-03-30 at 12.04.43 AM.png

Again, you’re part of the TMF squad so this probably doesn’t pertain to you. Let me tell you right now, if you’re just chillin’ on your couch with no motivation but to play Fortnite all day, kiss the girl of your dreams away.

 

With all the cash you have to pay with tuition, textbooks, food, transportation, and housing, the last thing that’s on your mind is your style. I get that, so that’s why today I wanted to show you how you can dress for under $100.

1.RAW PAIR OF DENIM

Screen Shot 2018-03-27 at 12.57.20 AM.png

This goes for every student, raw denim is a must in every closet. It’s durable, stylish and will literally last you a long time. Honestly, the more you wear it, the better it looks. As the CEO of Levi’s said, “You don’t have to wash these….ever.” Even better, you can get a pair of these from UNIQLO for like $40.

2.GET A BUNCH OF WHITE AND BLACK T-SHIRTS

Screen Shot 2018-03-27 at 12.58.05 AM.png

T-shirts are a must for any guys, however for a young guy, if you pair a t-shirt with a nice pair of denim and you’ll look more stylish than the rest of campus.

3.A GOOD WATCH

Screen Shot 2018-03-27 at 12.35.31 PM.png

You need at least one, and if you’re young and looking for quality watch, I highly recommend Original Grain. I say this because first of all, they’re affordable. When you’re young, you don’t want to spend $300-$500 on just one timepiece. Most of their watches are in the $100 range, and a little secret for you guys is always go to their sale tab, they have one piece that’s around $80 and if you apply our special “TMF” discount code.

Secondly, it’s a unique design. Go ahead and check out their website, and look at their variety of watches that they offer. I can tell you right now, it’s like nothing you have ever seen. Original Grain does push the envelope when it comes to unique design.

Lastly, they give back to the environment, that’s always a win-win situation to me. A company that gives back is a company I want to support. You’re not only getting a good product but you’re also planting a tree in Africa, if you want to check out their story, I highly recommend you do, click here and pick yourself a quality watch.

4.A JACKET

Screen Shot 2018-03-27 at 1.33.06 PM.png

It can be any jacket, whether it be a biker, denim or bomber, whatever suits you best. If you ask me, I’d go to H&M, they have a wide variety of jackets that start out from $50 and they’re pretty decent quality for the amount of money your paying. In addition, they have any type of style you can think of.

5.A GOOD HOODIE

Screen Shot 2018-03-27 at 1.36.58 PM.png

As a young guy, this will be the most versatile sweater you will own. It will keep you warm in cold classrooms, and if it fits right, it’s going to give extra style points.

6.SNEAKERS

Screen Shot 2018-03-27 at 1.43.24 PM.png

You need a pair of sneakers that you can wear day in and day out. A pair of beaters like some Vans Old Skool that look good when get dirty as well. Stan Smith’s are also a great everyday shoes. Depending on your preference, you can’t go wrong on either ones.

7.A PAIR OF CHINOS

Screen Shot 2018-03-27 at 1.51.55 PM.png

Sometimes, streetwear isn’t the best option in some situations. Being able to switch styles and still look good shows that you know how to dress. Therefore, buying a quality and well-fitting pair of chinos is an essential in every guy’s wardrobe.

8. A NICE BACKPACK

Screen Shot 2018-03-27 at 2.03.30 PM.png

I’ve said this before, backpacks will literally make or break your outfit. You can have killer style, but if you throw on a nerdy backpack, you ruined the whole fit. I always recommend buying either a canvas or leather backpack.

9. FLANNELS

Screen Shot 2018-03-27 at 2.09.40 PM

I don’t know if you guys noticed but flannels were extremely popular last year and it just as popular this year. However, if you live somewhere hot like Florida, wearing a flannel is unbearable, so I recommend you get yourself some casual plaid button downs.

10.HEADPHONES

Screen Shot 2018-03-27 at 2.14.50 PM.png

As you guys know, a good pair of headphones is an essential for every man. As of right now, my favorite earbuds are the Apple Airpods. They’re stylish, compact and they sound amazing. I’ve tried so many bluetooth headphones and these are the best.

 

1.INVEST IN SUMMER FABRICS

Screen Shot 2018-03-23 at 1.48.41 PM.png

If you want to be a summer connoisseur, you need to pay attention to the fabrics you’re wearing. Instead of the heavy cashmere sweater you wore this past winter, get some linens, seersuckers, and breathable cottons. Just by wearing those particular fabrics, it immediately makes your summer style untouchable. In addition, it adds functionality, these fabrics will keep you cool during the hot summer days.

2. MAKE YOURSELF STAND OUT

Screen Shot 2018-03-23 at 2.08.58 PM.png

I always talked about layering in the Winter, that’s what really separates you from the rest. Obviously, you can’t do this in the Summer so what can you do to make your outfit unique? Accessories! Luckily for you, RoseGold&Black has you covered. They have stylish accessories that keep you looking handsome during the Summer months.

Right now is the time to invest in some of their jewelry because they just dropped some new heat! They got new necklaces and bracelets that I’m absolutely in love with.

Screen Shot 2018-03-23 at 2.39.47 PM.png

One of my favorite accessories for the Summer is this white beaded bracelet, it’s stylish, fits well, but it also suits the season. If you’re in the market for some jewelry, the RoseGold&Black is the site for you, as always just because you’re in the TMF Family you get a special discount if you click this link.

3.DITCH YOUR SOCKS

Screen Shot 2018-03-23 at 2.44.09 PM.png

I know it’s a hard move for a lot of the old-timers, but ditching your socks adds a cool swagger to your look and not many things can emulate this. Although you’re giving the look of no-socks, you still need to wear no-show socks. This guarantees comfort throughout the day and it’s something that absorbs the sweat.

4.A GOOD PAIR OF SHADES BEATS EVERYTHING

Screen Shot 2018-03-23 at 2.46.54 PM.png

The sun is blazing during the Summer, a pair of quality sunglasses protect you from the sun and it’s harmful rays. Of course, it will hide any imperfections and will upgrade your outfit without any effort.

5. IT’S ALL ABOUT FOOTWEAR

Screen Shot 2018-03-23 at 2.57.17 PM.png

For your footwear, you want to keep everything light and breathable. So, for dressy options, loafers are your best bet. You got penny loafers, monk-straps, and even tassel loafers, within that category of shoes there are a lot of variations of fabrics that fit the season. For sneakers, prime-knits are your best option, both Nike and Adidas have various styles, something out there for almost anyone. For casual situations, my personal favorite are canvas, you can never go wrong with those.

 

Boys! If you got a girlfriend, don’t screw it up and push her into the hands of another man. Not on my watch, today I’m going to be showing you 5 ways you could be doing that could breaking you two lovebirds apart.

1.YOU COULD BE A DICK

Screen Shot 2018-03-23 at 12.42.50 AM.png

In case you didn’t know this already, women want to be showered in compliments and want to feel sexy. However, if you never tell her she’s pretty, you’re always fighting and angry, your road-rage is out of control. You just have a bad personality. No one wants to live the rest of their life with a psycho. Just make sure you have your basic manners in check and make her feel special.

2.YOU’RE A SLOB

Screen Shot 2018-03-23 at 12.43.43 AM.png

It’s proven scientifically that if you’re a slob, your girl won’t want to be with you. Let me give you an example, you do all this work to impress your girl, you dress up and smell nice. A couple months go by and you stop caring. You get comfortable and let go of yourself. All of a sudden, you become an un-groomed slob. She’s going to immediately notice your dis-interest and fall into the arms of another guy.

Let me help you, pick up the Roam so you’re ready for all emergencies and situations.

Screen Shot 2018-03-22 at 11.48.05 PM.png

As always, the price plays a huge part. The Roam retails for $50 and I know that seems expensive, but you know the TMF “fam” gets the best deal. With code “jose50” you get this whole set of essentials for only $25. This kit comes with everything, so with that price, that’s a steal. Most of the hardware is high quality stainless steel and everything feels like quality. In total, you’re going to get:

You’re getting 15 essential grooming tools for only $25. It would be a sin not to get it at that price.

3.YOU’RE NOT PAYING ATTENTION TO HER

Screen Shot 2018-03-23 at 12.44.18 AM.png

Women are funny, when you start dating you can’t be so clingy and give her all the attention in the world.  You don’t want to give her everything. Most get turned off by that and see you as a desperate guy. However, when you’re in a committed relationship, all of that changes. Now, she wants all of you and your attention. Well, us guys are still in the mindset of “Eh, let me do me”.

If you spend more time with the boys, ignore her texts, don’t give her any love or affection, that leaves her vulnerable to another guy that gives her that attention.

4.SHE’S HAVING DOUBTS

Screen Shot 2018-03-23 at 12.38.21 AM.png

This is usually a result due to lack of trust. Maybe she caught you checking another girl out, maybe she caught you saying a couple of white lies or you said something really messed up to her that rubbed her off the wrong way. All in all, she’s filled with resentment,  insecurities and anger. That’s the time when she goes to another guy to escape those feelings. Make sure you never give your girl a reason to doubt you.

5. THE OTHER GUY IS JUST MORE ATTRACTIVE

Screen Shot 2018-03-23 at 12.45.19 AM.png

This is the worst one…she could leave you for a stud. BUT, I purposely left this one for last becuase who are we kiddin’ here. If you read these articles regularly, you are the stud. You’re gonna be the guy that girls leave their boyfriend for.

What are your chances of success? Wouldn’t you want to know what they are? I know I would! That’s why today I wanted to show you 6 simple things you can implement into your life to make sure you become successful.

1.BUILD A ROUTINE

Screen Shot 2018-03-22 at 2.06.36 PM.png

You want to streamline your day and be as effective as possible. When you have a daily routine, you add structure to your life. After all, we’re creatures of habit, there routines will help you become more successful.

2.WAKE UP EARLY

Screen Shot 2018-03-22 at 2.07.35 PM.png

I’ve mentioned this before, this world made for early-risers. Some great examples of this is someone like Richard Branson from the Virgin Group or Disney CEO Robert Iger. They have the same 24 hours to the days that we have, your goal is to maximize your day just like they did. Set an alarm and wake up at the time everyday.

3.WEAR THE SAME THING EVERYDAY

Screen Shot 2018-03-21 at 8.41.47 PM.png

All the greatest minds in the world, found outfits that worked with them and worn the same thing all the time. That’s one last thing they have to think about and more time to invest and lead them to be more successful. But, let’s be honest here, you and I are stylish, we can’t wear them same thing every day. We’d go insane!

I’m guessing you’re the type of guy who likes to conserve time, wants to be successful, but doesn’t want to waste time to go to stores and shop for clothes. If that’s you, then I highly recommend you check out Menlo Club. I’ve been getting their clothes for a while now and let me tell you, it does not disappoint.

Screen Shot 2018-03-21 at 9.02.43 PM

Let me give you an example, you’re a hard working college student, you don’t have time to look for clothes. Menlo Club will take care of that for you. Every month they send you a stylishly composed outfit, so you look handsome without the effort! You get all that delivered to your door for only $60. But, you guys already know you don’t pay full retail with me, first time users get the first two months, for only $30 each with code “TMF“, that’s a 50% discount!

4.SPEAK YOUR MIND

Screen Shot 2018-03-22 at 2.08.24 PM.png

No matter what, you always have to be honest with your thoughts. Remember, your actions follow what you say, when you don’t speak your mind, your actions are going to mimic that. When you speak up, it can potentially spark up a business idea or it can lead to changing something at work, that eventually gets you a raise.

5.ALWAYS COMPLIMENT OTHERS

Screen Shot 2018-03-22 at 2.09.14 PM.png

Successful people how hard the grind it and they give props to people that are trying and doing their best. On the other hand, unsuccessful people always try to bring others down to their level, they spend most of their time criticizing others.

6.DON’T BE A COUCH POTATO

Screen Shot 2018-03-22 at 2.11.17 PM.png

Think about this, successful people have money for the liposuctions, the plastic surgery and all that comes with that lifestyle. But a lot of them don’t do it. Why? Because a lot of smart and wealthy people take some time out of their day to do some sort of physical exercise, not only will this keep your brain healthy, it will minimize stress and make you fit.

Today, I wanted to show you guys some of the most iconic shoes/sneakers that have been an iconic for decades and won’t die any time soon.

1.TIMBERLAND 6″ BOOT

Screen Shot 2018-03-20 at 12.40.17 AM.png

I would go as far to say that it’s the pioneer to the rugged aesthetic with boots. The original yellow boot was created in 1973 to be a waterproof and functional shoe for the hardworking people of New England. Now, as you can probably see this is more of a fashion statement than a work boot. Celebrities like Pharell, Kanye West and Rihanna are always seen rocking “timbs” and I can tell you right now, this fad is here to stay.

2.DOUBLE MONK STRAP

Screen Shot 2018-03-21 at 12.25.39 PM.png

This is a dressier shoe and something that I love in my collection. I have several pairs of these, all my mens-wear enthusiasts out there, they know it’s a must. According to history, these were worn centuries ago by monks, except it was more of a sandal version. It ended up evolving into a closed toe shoe for practical reasons. Think about it, you have the benefits of a slip-on loafer with the formality of an oxford.

These specifics one pictured above are from a great company called Ace Marks and I can vouch for their quality and craftsmanship. That’s exactly what you want when it comes to dress shoes. Just to prove it to you, these shoes are made in the same factory as other companies that charge up to $600 for a pair of shoes. Ace Marks cuts out the middle man and is able to give you a high-end luxury shoe for a reasonable price. If you guys want to check them out, I highly recommend you check you their kick-starter.

3.AIR JORDAN 1

Screen Shot 2018-03-21 at 1.47.06 PM.png

Some might argue that this is the most iconic shoe of any collection. If you think about, this is what propelled the sneaker culture with collecting and the hype around it. If that’s not iconic, I don’t know what is.

4.ADIDAS STAN SMITH

Screen Shot 2018-03-21 at 1.54.37 PM.png

I would say this is the originator of the simple white leather sneaker. It was originally created for a French tennis player in the 1960s. When the French player decided to step down, Stan Smith decided to be the face of the shoe in 1978. Now, the rest is history, these shoes are iconic in both casual and streetwear and will always be a staple piece in a shoe collection.

5.PENNY LOAFER

Screen Shot 2018-03-21 at 2.14.41 PM.png

This is another iconic shoe in American menswear. It’s designed was inspired by Norwegian fisherman that were wearing a moccasin style loafer. They brought that design to the USA and the brand G.H. Bass made it popular.

Personally, I’m a fan of the more refined and modern penny loafer compared to the stumpier version.

Screen Shot 2018-03-21 at 2.49.15 PM.png

I believe this looks better with suits and denim. What do you guys think?

6.CONVERSE “CHUCK TAYLOR”

Screen Shot 2018-03-21 at 2.54.17 PM.png

This is one of the oldest shoes on this list. The first shoe was designed in 1917 for basketball players becuase of its special grip on the bottom. In 1934, they were given the name, Chuck Taylor. However, the most impressing part is 101 years later, the same aesthetic of the shoe exists and people are still rockin’ them.

1.COLLAR STAYS ARE A MUST

Screen Shot 2018-03-19 at 1.08.47 PM.png

There’s two ways you can go about this. Magnetic collar stays are a good option or you can wear something tacky like fashion anchors. All in all, these are a must, you want your collars to stay in place when you throw on a suit jacket, so you always look on point.

2.SHIRT STAYS

Screen Shot 2018-03-19 at 1.19.27 PM.png

This is something most men won’t know unless they’re an actual connoisseur. One of the most annoying things is when you’re all dressed up and as the day goes on, you’re shirt slowly get untucked. Well, I have a solution to your problem and it’s shirt stays. The one that I personally use is from a company called KK&J. I know the feeling, first thing in the morning you tuck your shirt in and you feel amazing, luckily with shirt stays you get to keep that feeling all day long.

Screen Shot 2018-03-19 at 1.24.40 PM.png

A new feature that KK&J just released is a shirt stays that doesn’t require socks. Traditionally, shirt stays would connect with your sock, however now you can rock loafers with no-show socks and still have your shirt tucked in all day. If you guys want to check these out, which I highly recommend you do, click on this link and type in “TMF20” for a special discount.

3.APPLY COLOGNE BEFORE PUTTING ON CLOTHES

Screen Shot 2018-03-19 at 1.33.17 PM.png

This reason behind this, is when you put on a jacket or something that you don’t wash as often, you most likely applied cologne to it before. Unless you only wear ONE cologne, it probably has some residue from the last cologne you had on. At that point, you’re going to have a mixture of different colognes that probably doesn’t smell as attractive.

When you apply to the skin, you’re cologne won’t be as potent, so you won’t give people a headache. Secondly, it won’t infuse your jacket and create a collection of colognes on it. I also have noticed, that when you wear your cologne closer to your body, it sort of draws people in and when you’re talking to females, that’s exactly what you want.

4.YOU NEED A STEAMER

Screen Shot 2018-03-19 at 1.36.31 PM.png

Let’s be honest, you don’t want a wrinkly shirt and ironing it would be a such a hassle. Just pick yourself up a steamer and whenevr you’re getting ready in the morning, quickly steam your clothing to get rid of any sort of wrinkle.

5.CUFF YOUR JEANS

Screen Shot 2018-03-19 at 1.40.29 PM.png

If you look through my Instagram or lookbooks, I’m usually always cuffing my jeans, it instantly tapers your jeans nicely and it removes any type of scrunching that can happen at the bottom. It also really highlights any shoe or sneaker that you’re wearing.

6.TIE YOUR SHOES CORRECTLY

Screen Shot 2018-03-19 at 1.44.20 PM.png

Most of the times, you tie your shoes tightly in the morning and by the end of the day, they feel lose. That’s because you’ve been tying them wrong. Instead of going over with you laces, go under with the bunny ears, if you tie your shoes vertically, the knot will become tighter and tighter when go about your day.

 

 

 

1.PLUCK YOUR EYEBROWS

Screen Shot 2018-03-18 at 4.21.47 PM.png

I’m not telling you to shape your eyebrows to the point that it looks feminine. However, pluck out any excessive hair around the natural shape of your eyebrow. Make sure you get rid of the unibrow. If you want to take it to the next level, take some scissors and cut off any long hairs. If you do this every 2-3 weeks, this will ensure that your eyebrows are always on point.

2.LINE UP YOUR BEARD

Screen Shot 2018-03-18 at 7.29.18 PM.png

It’s 2018, you don’t need to be clean shaven to be professional or good looking. However, this doesn’t mean you don’t have to keep your stubble and beard in check. I personally prefer to line by beard every 4-5 days with my Dollar Shave Club razor. After trimming down your beard, a line-up is crucial to make sure that your beard looks precise. The best way to do this is with a razor from Dollar Shave Club.

Screen Shot 2018-03-18 at 7.23.50 PM.png

When I line-up my beard, I typically grab a hair trimmer and I’ll line up the general shape of my beard. I follow my neck-line and cut a little under my jawline. I also like to clean the area above my cheekbone, mustache and chin. Doing this, will make the hair short and close to the skin, so when you come in with a razor, there won’t be any pulling or tugging.

Once you’re done with that step, grab some clear butter from the Dollar Shave Club, this is perfect for this task because it will make the hair smooth, allowing the razor to glide. Secondly, it’s clear, a lot of shaving cremes are not see-through and you don’t see where you’re cutting. You can see exactly where your lining up your beard, so you won’t make any mistakes.

If you use the Executive Package from Dollar Shave Club, it comes with a precision blade on the back to ensure a crispy line-up all the time. If you never tried them out, there’s an  amazing deal going on right now. For all new members, they’re offering a starter kit so you have the ability to try out all of their products. For only $5, including Free-Shipping, this is what you’re going to get.

Screen Shot 2018-03-18 at 7.43.54 PM.png

If you want to be a part of the club, click on this link, so you can get your hands on the starter kit.

3.LEARN HOW TO MANSCAPE

Screen Shot 2018-03-18 at 7.46.44 PM.png

Manscaping is a form of art. Some areas require a certain tool and others call for a different tool. If you want to find out how to manscape properly, I wrote an article, so I suggest you check it out.

4.SCRUB YOUR FACE AT LEAST ONCE A WEEK

Screen Shot 2018-03-18 at 8.00.12 PM

A facial scrub compared to a facial wash is more abrasive and sandy. When you rub that in, it lift all the dead skin cells, it also promotes collagen production and bring forth a brighter, more beautiful skin. Keep in mind, you always want to do this once a week, because too much facial scrub can end up hurting your skin.

5.BE A REGULAR AT THE BARBERSHOP

Screen Shot 2018-03-18 at 8.25.53 PM.png

You should visit the barbershop every 2-3 weeks, even if you’re letting your hair grow out, it’s good to visit the shop to trim your hair and make sure you stay good looking. You already know the feeling, when you get a fresh cut, you feel like the hottest guy in the world. Don’t you want that feeling more often?

School is hard as it is, but thankfully you got me, a dear friend, to make it as easy as possible. Today, I’m going to do just that, whether you’re in Middle School, High School or College, I’m going to make your life easier.

1.SAVING MONEY WHEN SHOPPING ONLINE

Screen Shot 2018-03-16 at 11.02.44 PM.png

Let’s be honest, when you’re in school, you have time or money to go on shopping sprees. Most of your shopping is going to happen online, and if it isn’t already, Amazon is your best friend. Anything from grooming supplies to stylish clothing can be found on there. However, if you’re on a tight budget, you have to download Honey.

This is a web browser extension with just two clicks, will get you the best deal on millions of products online. The great thing about Honey is that it’s unobtrusive, it won’t spam you and it does all of it’s work on the back end. So, next time you’re online shopping, it will look through tons of discount codes so when you get to checkout, you’ll be surprised with a coupon! In conclusion, if you don’t have Honey yet, you NEED to check it out and thank me later.

2.ALWAYS CARRY A SMALL BOTTLE OF COLOGNE

Don’t be that kid always carrying that cheap bottle AXE, that doesn’t do anything but make you smell tacky. What I would do, is always carry a small bottle of Scentbird.  You can easily throw it in your bag, it’s lightweight, small and perfect for traveling. If you’re ever caught in a situation where you need to smell good immediately, just pull out your handy Scentbird. You’re a spray away from having people adore your scent.

One of the biggest reasons I love Scentbird is because if you’re a student, you probably don’t have $80-$100 to buy a full bottle of cologne. On the other hand, for only $15 a month, Scentbird sends you a substantial amount of cologne to last you a while with your scent of choice. I was in college too, I understand how it is. So I reached out and made sure you guys got the best deal and I did! $15 is cheap as is, however if you use code “TEACH30“, you’ll get 30% off your first month of cologne! If that’s not a deal, I don’t know what is.

3.LEARNING FAST

Let’s set aside all the lies, computers don’t help you write notes. Go old school, start using pen and paper. When you take notes with pen and paper, you are actively listening better and identifying important concepts. Not to mention, when you’re writing notes on a laptop, you have tons of distractions from messages to social media, the list goes on.

4.WAKE UP EARLY AND EXCITED

Early risers have the greatest advantage in this world, they get the most out of their day. Morning risers are usually more aware, better problem solvers and more productive. If you want to wake up earlier, make it a routine, go to bed at around 10PM-11PM and go to sleep at that time every night.

Afterwords, set an alarm on your phone or clock, I personally wake up at 5:30AM every morning, if I sleep in any longer, I feel out of wack and my whole day is messed up.

5.MAKE NEW FRIENDS

One of the struggles of going to school is meeting new friends, a quick hack you can do is whenever you walk into a classroom, do it with confidence and assume that everyone already likes you. This works like a charm, it’s going to make it so much easier to strike up a conversation with anyone in the room.

 

Sneakers have so many different designs and color-ways that it’s somewhat difficult to mix and match a variety of outfits. Today, I’m going to make that easy for you, so matching your sneakers to your outfit wouldn’t be a problem.

1.DON’T BE SO “MATCHY-MATCHY”

You’re trying to be stylish, not  team mascot. Some of the most stylish fits I’ve ever seen is when they’re kept simple and balanced. For example, if you’re shoes have a lot of color, balance it with a simple outfit and vice versa.

2.CAREFULLY MATCH YOUR ACCESSORIES

Don’t wear a luxury watch or a fine metal bracelet with casual running shoes. Everything has a time and a place. Instead, wear a beaded bracelet and an everyday watch, it will do a better job of matching the aesthetic of the outfit. This is a big reason why I love wearing RoseGold&Black when it comes to accessories.

They have a range of diverse jewelry for men, it gives you enough options when it comes to matching your sneakers to your outfit. If you’re into accessories or streetwear, this is a company you’re absolutely going to love.

They have a line of necklaces that absolutely kill it when it comes to casual or streetwear. I previously wore their grenade pendants but they recently came out with the angel wing and I’m lovin’ it! These do look like they would cost a lot of money but in reality, they’re not. However, if you do have money to spend, they do offer a gold plated option.

On top of that, they have a wide variety of fashionable bracelets like I mentioned before with their beaded collection. So when it comes to accessorizing sneakers, this is the way to go. In addition, they are all adjustable so they fit all wrists. If you guy want to check them out, I highly suggest you do and click on this “link”  to get a hefty discount.

3.IT’S ALL ‘BOUT THE PANTS

If your focal point are the sneakers, you’re going to minimize the loose fabric from your pants around your ankles. It’s basically going to swallow up the shoe and defeat the purpose. Finding pants that highlight your shoe shouldn’t be a problem, most brands with a modern cut are usually tight around the ankles. Some even come with zippers to remove the most fabric as it tapers down.

If you don’t want to go out and buy new pants, that’s fine! Simply just pin-roll them and give them a temporary taper, this works just as good. Adding on, the type of pants matter too, make sure you don’t wear khakis with running shoes, match your shoes to the right type of pants.

4.USING THE RIGHT SNEAKER FOR THE OCCASION

Depending where you are, you want to match that sneaker to that occasion. There are so many designs you have a range of formality, from dressy to super casual. To make it easier for you, here’s 5 sneakers categories that I rated 1-5 (5 being the most dressy and 1 being the most casual)

  1. ATHLETIC TRAINERS (Flyknits, Ultraboosts)
  2. RETROS (Reeboks, New Balance, PowerPhase)
  3. SLIP-ONS (Vans, etc.)
  4.  CLASSICS (Vans, Converse, Stan Smith)
  5. MINIMALIST (Common Projects)

 

KEEP IN MIND:

Most rules are meant to be broken, I’ve seen many people break the norm and still look stylish. However this article is a good place to start if your a beginner. If you follow these rules, you’ll never go wrong and look out of place.

Remember: Always keep it simple and balanced!
