HOW BLOGGERS BOYFRIEND SPENDS A WORK DAY AND HOW YOU CAN TRY IT OUT

January 26, 2017

Every office has one – the girl who does it all, does it well and looks good at the same time. How does she do it?

It’s a new year which means you need to step up your game if you want to keep up with the pack. Your body is like an iPhone and your brain is just the Apple ISO system, is it the new you version 3.12 today? Have you realised some new things in the last few days? Do you feel a new you grow on you? If no, you should because all it takes is some simple changes and new frame of mind to be as successful as Steve Jobs in your own criteria.

If you have an iPhone 4 in your purse or pocket, it doesn’t matter which ISO system you try to upgrade to, your phone isn’t going to reach its full potential. That is because the physical body doesn’t support the newer software or simply can’t hand the “speed” -exactly like our body. You have all your own brainstorming going on, trying to catchup with all the important work during the work-hours and prepare for the 7:30 am CEO meeting after dinner, but CAN YOUR BODY HANDLE IT? CAN YOUR BRAIN HANDLE IT?

I am going to reveal one of my biggest secrets to how I spend a successful work day. I have taken MACA ROOT PILLS daily for the past 3 years, I haven’t missed a day.  Here’s why and my story.

HOW TO SELECT MEN’S JEANS FOR YOUR BOYFRIEND

January 19, 2017

How comfortable can mens’ jeans be?

What is the right fit for your boyfriend’s body type?

What is the right cut for your man?

Can masculine legs really look good in skinny jeans?

How to wear jeans to look sharp, clean and sexy or to create the illusion of longer legs?

They are the fundamental research questions which the multi-billion global jeans industry is based on and the ethos behind the perfect pair of jeans. The classic denim pant has come a long way from its debut in the 1990s but the art of finding the perfect pair is still a challenge contemporary audiences are battling.

HOW TO WEAR MILITARY GREEN FOR MEN (2017 EDITION)

January 11, 2017

The key to a truly versatile wardrobe is stocking key staples in neutral hues – traditionally earthy colours, sand tones, camel, black, white and grey – no wonder the monochrome movement has been so indomitable for 2015 and 2016. So it might seem almost sacrilegious for Jiawa Liu and I to be endorsing a colour for the coming autumn, let alone green. But military green is not just any green. Its ever so specific desaturated earthy personality makes it the perfect new neutral to change up your wardrobe for the new season.

How to wear it? Trust me on this, the military green will camouflage right into your everyday wardrobe (pun intended). However, for an effortlessly put together look, keep the whole outfit to no more than two or three key colours. Reference these dark and muted green badass military roots with oversized utility pockets, then inject a modern touch with a sexy wrap skirt (for her) or a pair of powerful loafer with silver buckles (for him).

THE DO’S AND DON’TS FOR MEN WEARING FLORALS

December 27, 2016

After seeing all the stylish men during Paris & New York Fashion Week, I can’t blame you for wanting to master your florals. Some men might be wary of wearing floral prints, as it’s not traditionally seen as a masculine style. However, just remember that wearing floral fearlessly also denotes a man who is a lover of summer and the sun, and is confident and strong enough to wear just what he wants. That said, incorporating floral prints into your everyday look can be tricky. Below are tip from Bloggers Boyfriend for men who wants to invest in the right florals and wear it to perfection.

HOW TO DECORATE A MINIMAL AND INDUSTRIAL SPACE FOR CHRISTMAS – IN COLLABORATION WITH WEST ELM AUSTRALIA

December 17, 2016

To prepare for an onslaught of festive guests, we needed to liven up this sleek-yet-sombre Bloggers Boyfriend HQ. Instead of trees and tinsel, we opted for a glamorous, masculine update.

Probably similar to many Manhattan residents, we Melbourne bachelors tend to gravitate towards minimalist, industrial-inspired decor in our inner-city apartments and work spaces. And while we love our grey concrete, chrome accents, desaturated hues and neutral accessories, the overall effect doesn’t always scream ‘warm, welcoming + festive’ to visiting family and friends.

I came up with a few simple ideas to instantly help my home become more holiday-friendly. Read below for the rest of the story.  Continue Reading…

HOW TO WEAR AND STYLE TRIPLE DENIM

November 22, 2016

Today on the street, I am wearing triple denim! A very easy way to balance a dramatic triple or double denim outfit for men is to dress it down. Pick basic, masculine and classic pieces: bomber or military jacket, casual jeans and classic tortoise shades and brown boots.

Here, I am wearing denim bomber jacket with oversized look and loose fit sleeves.

HOW TO BUILD A LIFESTYLE AND WARDROBE — MY ENTIRE UNIQLO MEN’S COLLECTION —

October 29, 2016

Recently I had a friend in his 30s came to me for wardrobe advise. He’s one of these gents who dress expensive but does not lose bit fun in their outfits, always buy smart casual and classic pieces when shopping for their clothes. Like he’d dare to try some fresh trends and colours such as floral, pastel, pink, bright maroon and mustard; but he’s still very much into polo and cable knit kinda person. I recommended him a pair of Uniqlo camel trousers, he looks at me confused: “Really? looks plain and boring”.

We need to understand, for brands like Uniqlo Australia, it is not a designer brand would bring you runway statement pieces, but it is the brand helps you to pull off runway statement pieces and build up a lifestyle, it is a brand about low-profile, back-to-basics entertaining. Every garment mirrors the way a minimalist feels a great life should be: comfortable, slow, sensitive and engaging.
