6 Secrets to Looking Sharp for the Ladies

6 Secrets to Looking Sharp for the Ladies

Many guys are clueless when it comes to impressing the ladies.

Of course, women tend to be more drawn to personality and maturity than looks (one of the many things that set the genders apart). However, a lot of women also care a lot about a man’s physical appearance. Here are some tips if you want to look sharp the next time you hit the club or want to approach that cute girl at the local coffee shop.

1. Only Grow a Beard if You Are Going to Do it Right

Women tend to have mixed feelings about beards. Part of the problem is that many men just don’t grow their beards out right.

Girls tend to be attracted to men with beards. It is a sign of manliness. However, they want to see that your beard is tidy. If your hair tends to jut out a lot, then you will need to be more diligent about trimming it. This is the biggest secret of all  good looking beard styles.

Buzzfeed’s Peggy Wang says that beards are great for some guys, but others should just keep their face clean-shaven.

“Patchy facial hair will always end up looking prickly and slovenly. Time to stop experimenting with the facial hair and start adhering to your clean-shaven regimen.”

2. Get a Workout Before Going Out

Anyone reading this post is probably already working out (or at least thinking about it). Getting exercise keeps you thin and builds muscle, which is a pleasure for the ladies.

However, working out isn’t enough. You also need to know when to work out. There are a couple reasons you may want to hit the treadmill or curl your biceps several hours right before going out:

  • It bulks up your muscle for three to four hours. You will look extra buff, which will turn more women’s heads.
  • Mild perspiration will release some pheromones, which subtly makes you more interesting.

Of course, you don’t want to be drenched in sweat either. Get a light workout without perspiring too much.

3. Make Sure Your Haircut Matches Your Face

Ryan Jackson, a grooming expert, states that too many people get haircuts that just aren’t right for them. A buzz cut or cropped hair may look great on someone else, but that doesn’t mean it will work for you.

“I used to think I looked fine with buzzcuts, little did I know my face shape/features weren’t suitable for really short hair,” Jackson says. “I realized this after getting feedback from others who told me, ‘It looks bad, you need more hair on the top of your head.’”

4. Start Wearing Slimmer Jeans

You probably never even really thought much about your jeans before. They are just jeans, right?

No. Your jeans play a major role in your physical appearance. Putting on a slimmer pair of jeans can make you look thinner and taller, which are both pluses with the ladies.

5. Dress Sharp

You will feel a lot more confident if you dress nicely. You don’t need to put on a tuxedo every time you go out. In fact, you don’t want to. It looks stupid, as we saw in Step Brothers.

So what should you wear? Here are a couple timeless pieces to include in your wardrobe:

  • Denim shirt
  • White or blue dress shirts
  • Blue blazer
  • Loafers or alligator boots
  • Gray, white or light blue cardigans

Think carefully every time you dress to go out. Women will probably notice your style before your face or hair.

6. Trim Your Hair Carefully

Remove any unwanted body hair. Having a three o clock shadow may look good when you hit the club on Friday, but other hair should be removed. Here are a couple things to keep in mind:

  • Pluck out any stray hairs from your face.
  • Remove all nose hairs. It’s a good idea to purchase a nose trimmer because it does a more thorough job.
  • Trim your chest and back if necessary. Most women don’t like to see it when they end up at your place.
  • If you are very nearly bald, then just shave your hair off. Don’t try to hide it with a combover.

Women like to see some hair on a man, but they want to see it in moderation.

8 Smart Home Gadgets You Need in Your House

8 Smart Home Gadgets You Need in Your House

We’ve all done it. We’ve gone out and bought useless gadgets that we don’t really need, just because they seemed really cool at the time. Then, we are stuck with a bunch of junk, and end up tossing it or trying to sell it on Ebay.

On the other hand, there are some pretty awesome tech inventions that are actually useful. For instance, many of the latest home gadgets do some of your work for you, from adjusting the home thermostat to locking your front door. And, if used as designed, these tools should really help to make your life a lot easier—and that’s not just a claim from some infomercial trying to sell you yet another useless gadget.

Take a look at some of the most popular “smart gadgets” on the market:

1. Smart Door Locks

A smart lock lets you lock and unlock your doors by using your smartphone, a special key fob, or biometrics. These locks are keyless, and much more difficult for intruders to break into, making your home a lot safer. You can even use a special app to let people into your home if you are not there to greet them.

2. Smart Kitchen Tools

Wouldn’t you just love to have a pot of coffee waiting for you when you get home from work? What about a “smart pan” that tells you exactly when you need to flip that omelet? From meat thermometers to kitchen scales, you’ll find a variety of “smart” gadgets designed to make culinary geeks salivate.

3. Mini Home Speaker Play:1

If you love big sound, but hate how much space big speakers take up, and if you want a stereo system that is no bigger than your fist, check out the Play:1 mini speaker. All you have to do is plug it in, connect, and then you can stream without worrying about any interruptions or interface. You can even add onto it, and have different music playing in different rooms.

4. Wi-Fi Security Cameras

These are the latest in home security, and they connect to the Wi-Fi in your home. You can use your mobile devices to monitor what is going on in your home at all times, no matter where you are. Options include motion sensors, two-way audio, and different recording options.

5. Nest Thermostat

This is a thermostat that lives with you. It can sense seasonal changes, temperature changes, etc., and it will adjust itself automatically. You will never have to fiddle with a thermostat dial or keypad again, because this one basically does all of the work for you. It can also help you to save as much as 12% on heating bills, and 15% on cooling bills.

6. Smart Lighting

Control your home lighting from your remote device. This is great if you are out and want to make sure that there are some lights on. It is designed to be energy efficient, so it will pay for itself over time because you won’t have to spend so much on your monthly energy bills.

7. Google Chromecast Ultra

Whether you love movies, television shows, music, etc., you can stream it all using Google Chromecast Ultra. Stream all of the entertainment you love in up to 4K UHD and HDR, for just $69 monthly.

8. Canary

This home security system will automatically contact emergency services when they are needed. This system offers both video and audio surveillance, so there will be evidence if there are any break-ins on your property. You can also use it to check up on what’s happening at home when you are not there, including to make sure the kids are doing their homework.
