Gift Guide for Him | Part 1

With the Holidays just around the corner, I've been doing a lot of searching for Christmas gifts. With all the great products I've stumbled upon, I decided to share some finds with you all. This first part is a guide of what to get a guy in your life. I have to admit, I used to think that shopping for guys was so difficult but after all my searching, I could say otherwise. Here's part 1 of some ideas of what to get him!
1) For the artist: A street art book is something they can open and enjoy from time to time. They can see and read about other artists' works. The World Atlas of Street Art and Graffiti is the definitive survey of international street art, focusing on the world’s most influential urban artists and artworks. Organized geographically by country and city, more than 100 of today’s most important street artists are profiled alongside key examples of their work. Price range: $25

2)For the adventurous:  The most recent GoPro just released last month which is the GoPro HERO3+. The GoPro is a great camera for the adventurer in your life to record their experiences to be able to share them with you or the world. Price range: $299 - $399

3) For the photographer: The Konstruktor DIY Kit lets you have a DIY experience to the extreme and allows you build your own 35mm plastic SLR camera with this kit. You can build your own camera and use it too. Price range: $35

4) For any guy: A magazine subscription! If you have a basketball fan in your life, get him a year subscription to a basketball magazine. If the guy in your life is into fitness and health, get him a yearly subscription to Men's Health. There are a bunch of mens magazines out there for all types of men; you're bound to find the perfect one for yours. Price range: $12 - $25

5) For the sneakerhead: Yes, you can get him shoes! But why not add something else to that? A Visual Compendium of Sneakers maps out 134 of the greatest kicks in the history of footwear for your eyeball pleasure. From the original Chucks back in 1917 to the insane Jeremy Scott and Adidas venture earlier this year, the print has all your staples covered. Besides, getting your hands on this 24″ x 36″ print is a lot easier than rocking half the sneakers depicted in it. Price range: $32

Review: Boscia Luminizing Black Mask

Hi everyone! Today, I will be reviewing the Boscia Luminizing Black Mask which is basically a peel-off mask.
What it is:
A groundbreaking, mineral-rich mask that peels off to deliver powerful detoxifying, purifying, and brightening effects.

What it is formulated to do:
This jet-black, mineral-rich mask creates a unique peel-off effect that delivers powerful detoxifying, purifying, and brightening results. Made with a premier-quality clay, its deep-cleansing properties draw out dirt and oil. Other natural ingredients go to work exfoliating skin and refining pores. Powerful antioxidants shrink pores, firm skin, and reduce inflammation. Once dried, the mask strips away dead skin, impurities and excess oil to reveal immediate and visible results.

What it is formulated WITHOUT:
- Parabens
- Sulfates
- Synthetic Fragrances
- Synthetic Dyes
- Petrochemicals
- Phthalates
- GMOs
- Triclosan

Research results:
After 4 weeks of use:
- 91% reported their skin felt softer
- 91% reported their skin felt less oily
- 82% reported their skin appeared brighter
After every use, I noticed that my skin would feel soft. After using it for a while, my face has been really calm; my face hasn't been breaking out. I can't say that it shrunk my pores or reduced the overall oiliness of my skin in any way. I mean, of course after using this mask, the oiliness on my skin is gone, but in general, I still have oily skin. Overall, this is a fun mask for me since I enjoy peel-off masks, but it's not something I would repurchase especially with the $34 price. I was just expecting a lot more for a mask with that price tag.
