Schnuck Didit Designs, for face, body and bath.

Another amazing product in my “hotbed” of talent from Vancouver, BC, the place I call home.

Mark and Andy of Schnuck Didit Designs are another of the underdogs that deserve a plate at the table and that I truly love! “Producing top quality, Canadian Made artisan soaps and grooming products”, this husband and husband team also make men’s underwear and bathing trunks, that not only look great, but fit like a glove for men of all shapes and sizes.

With the name Schnuck Didit, why wouldn’t I give it a try! A nickname I am told is for one of the guys, a name that aptly fits for their designs, did it, they did!

I’ve been buying their soaps for a number of years now, after trying the minimally scented bars as a way to support the local hard working businesses I love to spend my dollars with.

““They strive to use “Made in Canada” whenever possible and focus on natural ingredients. This is an important consideration for everything they create. Their products are made in small batches from 100% natural ingredients and pure essential oils, without any of the laurel sulphates, dyes or perfumes. Their scents are unique and refreshing combinations that are masculine and never floral or overpowering.””

They make Bath Bombs, Face Scrubs, Massage Gels, Massage Oils, Toners, Reed Diffusers, Votive Candles, and Icy Muscle Rubs

Since both of these guys have long luxurious beards, and trust me I know, I’ve had my hands in those beards, it seemed only fitting that they would make a few conditioners for those facial locks. Beard Oils and Beard Butters, light and not to heavy, but certainly conditioning and controlling. Complimentary scents like, Birch Lime, Coffee Vanilla, Cypress, products they’ve also made available at the Burly Barber Inc

Currently their fabric of choice of their underwear is a soft luxurious flannel, while soft on the goods, fitted at the legs but not too tight and a forgiving waistband that is structured to stay in place without drooping or dropping. Their swim trunks made with a blend of lycra spandex fit the way a good men’s bathing should, by holding everything in place, without sagging, and repel excess moisture when out of the water. Of course I love them, why wouldn’t I, they are sexy and cute, and we all know I love my men to look sexy and cute in great fitting swim trunks that aren’t to the knees!

In my own personal shopping habits I usually buy 5 bars at a time that last me at least 6 months. A little trick I learned to lengthen the life span of a new bar of soap is to dry it out for a week or so before use and sit it on a ridged soap dish so it doesn’t rest in the soapy run off. Of course these bars don’t do that anyway, and prices won’t break the bank.

Yes their products are made with care, and ingredients include;

Coconut oil, Palm oil (ethically sourced) Cocoa butter, Sweet Almond oil, Avocado oil, grape seed oil, Hempseed oil, Sunflower oil, Essential oils, and cosmetic grade pigments.

They make good $# *!

The Pretty Little Leaf

Pretty Red Little Leaf

The Pretty little leaf is what’s sexy this week!

There I was, shit, showered and shaved, dressed and ready for the day, over my morning anxiety with my “kick ass” attitude dialed in at a level ten as I went out the door to face the day. My clothes perfectly coordinated of complimentary colours, matching jewelry, makeup applied with the precision of surgeon, and my hair all neatly hot-rollered and set. I was ready! With chin held high, shoulders back, tits out, and stomach in, I walked to the bus stop to patiently wait with all the other morning riders.

On the bus, I made myself comfortable for the 15 minute ride to the skytrain reading the morning paper as we rode over the bumps and potholes that dotted the downtown streets of beautiful Vancouver; the city I call home. The bus’s arrival at the skytrain always greats me with a certain amount of irony, its the skytrain, but at this juncture it runs underground. It always gives me a brief moment of contemplation as I descend to the train’s platform quietly crop dusting as I make my way deeper into the ground.

FingerNails, Long and Luscious, with Holiday Colours Worth Getting from CND Review

fingernails-long-luscious-cnd-1

My finger nails are something I always have! It’s just one element that goes into being me!

Long luscious fingernails that I feel finish and compliment my hands. Something I know a lot of other women feel the same way, just as they do about their hair. For me its all about the total ook from top to bottom.

Yes I’m high maintenance, but it’s maintenance I look after no one else. I choose it, so I work on it! Starting from my health from the inside out, eat right, trips to the gym, my hair, make-up, clothes and the finer things. 

Again my fingernails are no exception to that rule, and I’ve added them to my schedule of monthly maintenance! It’s a treat I give to myself and I’m very appreciative of that fact, to be able to treat myself to some of these finer things in life I covet. I work hard, and some would say I play hard. Meh!

Art In the Eyes of the Beholder, That’s What Sexy This Week

Beauty truly is in the eyes of the beholder, and art is subject to the same, the interpretations of each and every individual person. The personal tastes of one person are completely different from that of the next, what I like as art, you may not. I try to find beauty in all I see, if not the whole picture, then an element or two of it. I’m busy keeping myself stimulated, inspired, and motivated to keep the dreams alive. Appreciating the creations produced for my enjoyment, art in the eyes of the beholder, that’s what sexy this week.

Sexy This Week: The Beauty of Ages

Carmen Dell'orefice

As time ticks on, so do we and in the words of a David Bowie song

“Pretty soon now you’re gonna get older
Time may change me
But I can’t trace time”

Poetic words to live by and let’s be honest we are all fighting it to some degree, and if not gracefully, then pretty damn ugly. I am no “negative nelly” when it comes to having the services of a cosmetic surgeon attend to my upkeep, hell no! I am all for it, but there are definitely times when going overboard looks as though you’ve been out to sea for months on end, stranded by yourself in a dingy with nothing else but you and your urine. In other words a hot mess!!

Tidbits; Shit, Shower, and a Shave

velvet-1

I’ve been asked the question; “what do you do to keep looking the way you do?” many times, and I’ve gone through the answer at great length many times, so I thought I would share a little bit of that here.

Looking and feeling good takes time and effort, so yes, it does bother me when folks tell me; “it’s easy for you to get up and look they way you do!”, another statement I get a lot of. Well let me tell you, just like everyone else, I have to get up in the morning and do the proverbial shit, shower and shave! I apologize for the crass description, but it’s a saying we’ve all heard many times before and is the perfect way to describe it.

Agreed, good genetics do a play a part, but for me, cosmetically, I’ve also done a few things along the way to look the way I want by improving on what I was given at birth. These are things that I chose to do, not anyone else, I am my own mind and body able to make my own decisions. (more…)
