6 Life Skills All Men Should Master

Having life skills is an important part of succeeding as an adult, and there are a few we feel all men should have once they’re grown up. From knowing how to cook a delicious meal to learning when to prioritize your mental health, check out 6 life skills all men should master. 

How To Fix a Drink

We all know how to pour a beer or a glass or wine, but knowing how to make a cocktail (even a basic one) is a surefire way to impress your guests. You don’t need to know every cocktail under the sun, but having a handle on one or two will definitely serve you well (think a Moscow Mule, a Martini, or an Old Fashioned). Plus, being able to fix a drink isn’t solely about following a recipe, it also speaks to your ability to play the role of host. 

How To Invest Your Money Wisely 

Knowing how to invest your money is another skill all men should master, especially if they want to get the most out of their savings. Do some research into financial management to ensure you’re making the smartest decisions for your wallet. You may consider hiring a financial planner to help you. Having a good handle on your finances and understanding the basics of investing will only serve to grow your savings in the long run. 

How To Properly Care For Your Underwear

This should go without saying, but unfortunately many men do not understand how to properly care for their underwear (or know when to throw it away). Ideally, men should purchase new underwear once a year and aim to have between 15 and 20 pairs in their underwear drawer at any given time. If underwear starts to sag, stretch, pill, or develop a hole, it should be tossed out. Further, when it comes to washing your undergarments, the most important consideration is the fabric. Cotton underwear can be washed and dried regularly, but those made of microfibre or delicate materials like lace or mesh should be washed in cold water and hung to dry. 

How To Cook A Delicious Meal

You don’t need to be Jamie Oliver in the kitchen, but knowing how to cook at least a few meals well is an important skill that will take you far in life. Not only will it ensure you don’t rely solely on takeout, but it is a skill that will surely impress your partner, friends, and family. If you don’t know where to begin, invest in a decent cookbook (or find an online blog you like) and experiment. You’ll only improve your cooking skills with practice. 

How To Prioritize Your Mental Health 

The final life skill all men should master is prioritizing your mental health. Your mental health is just as important as your physical health, and should be treated as such. Just as you  might go for a run or hit the gym a few times a week, you should incorporate positive mental health habits into your weekly routine. Whether it’s as simple as carving out some “me time” to read a book, take a bath, or watch television, or as involved as attending a therapy session, yoga class, or meditating. There are plenty of ways to de-stress and re-centre, just make sure you’re taking the time to engage in activities that bring you joy. 


7 Essentials Every Man Should Have in Their Home 

Just like what you wear, your home says a lot about you. The furniture you choose, the art on the walls, the utensils in the kitchen, they are all a testament to who you are. That is why it’s important to think carefully about what you put in your home. Below, we’ve compiled a list of 7 essential items every man should have in their home.


Every man should have a quality set of glassware in their apartment. And no, we’re not talking about a set of mismatched coffee mugs. Instead, you should have a matching set of at least four wine glasses, old fashioned glasses, and beer glasses. 

A Houseplant

A touch of greenery can liven up any pad. Look for big, statement plants and place them in a sun-filled corner of your home. Easy-to-care-for plants include succulents, ZZ plants, pothos, and cacti. However, if you’re adamant you have a true black thumb, then look for a realistic-looking fake plant. Even faux flora will brighten a room.

Soft Towels

Soft towels are another essential every man should have in their home. Terry cloth or organic cotton towels are a good place to start. And remember to buy a matching set that contains a mix of sizes – bath towels, hand towels, and face towels. 

A Bed Frame

If you’re no longer in college, then there’s no excuse for you to be sleeping on a mattress on the floor. A bed frame (and ideally a box spring too) is a must for any man living in their own home. While we’re talking about beds, we also recommend investing in a quality mattress. Sure, they might cost a little more up front, but they’ll last longer than their cheap counterparts. Think of it as a decade-long investment in a good night’s sleep.

Wall Art 

No one likes staring at blank walls. Wall art is an easy way for you to give your place a little personality. And there are so many different directions you can go in. From paintings to drawings to photographs, gallery walls to one large statement piece, express yourself however you like. But whatever you do, get something up on your wall and make sure to frame it. 

Cooking Utensils

Every man’s kitchen should be stocked with at least a basic set of cooking utensils. Even if cooking isn’t your favourite activity, you should still be equipped with the most essential of kitchen items. We’re talking about a chef’s knife, a paring knife, a serrated knife, tongs, a whisk, a metal or silicone spatula, measuring spoons, measuring cups, a casserole dish, and of course, a set of pots and pans. 

A Well-Stocked Underwear Drawer

Finally, no man should live without a well-stocked underwear drawer. A man’s underwear drawer should include everyday essentials, like cotton boxers or briefs, as well as microfibre underwear for working out and perhaps a few pairs for sexy nights in. In essence, your top drawer should be filled with quality underwear for every occasion.


The charming Italy

What can you buy for 1 €? Or if you are not in Europe, think of the same question, but adapted to your currency. I bet that just a couple of silly things come to your mind: toothpaste, umbrellas, junky food… But what would you do if I tell you that you can buy a house for 1 €?

Mind-blowing, isn’t it?! And the best is that it is true. Can you imagine yourself living in the lovely country of Italy? Old houses that need to be rebuilt are being sold for this affordable price with the idea of attracting new residents and tourists to these almost unoccupied towns.

Exactly as in the films. This is how 1€ houses look like.

I have to be honest, these towns are not located in the big cities, but are still an amazing alternative for those looking for summer houses, are retired or enjoy a simple and quiet life.

All these towns have something in common: the most beautiful landscapes and views. They all are located near volcanoes and islands with stunning views of the Mediterranean Sea.

Peace is what you will get in exchange, so be prepared for silence. These pretty towns are in Sicilia, Piamonte, Marche, Campania, Toscana, Lazio, Cerdeña, and Abruzzo.

What do you need to get yours?

 It changes from town to town, but in general, you just need to invest at least € 15,000 in the property during the next 3 years after getting it. An advance deposit of €5,000 will be required from you too, but with the possibility of claiming the money back after you have rebuilt the house.

This ambitious project has been out for people since 2008, but seems to have a bigger impact after Covid-19, as this country was highly affected by the pandemic. However, many of these towns are virus-free, so you can be sure that everything is gonna be fine!






The best morning ritual

We all want the secret to be full of energy in the mornings. Sometimes we wake up in a very good mood, feeling that the world is ours, but there are other times when we don’t even want to get up from bed, but don’t worry! We have a really nice natural remedy for you to improve your health and mood.

Your best option when it comes to the improvement of your health

Is there a real morning ritual that we should follow in order to feel better with ourselves? The answer is YES! Apple cider vinegar. I know it must sound crazy for you, but this is something that even the science has managed to prove.

One of its best benefits is its ability to reduce the sugar levels in your blood. We know that we should avoid sugary foods, but sometimes it can be hard, so this can be amazingly helpful after those cheat meals. If you suffer from type 2 diabetes we highly recommend you to try it. Apple cider vinegar taken as first thing in the morning can reduce your sugar levels in 4%.

If you are looking for your bikini body, this morning ritual will be one of your favourites. Did you know that it can help you to lose the belly fat and with the weight loss in general? This powerful beverage will make you feel full and so, you will intake less calories.

But also, this kind of magical remedy can aid you in the prevention of cardiovascular diseases and to keep down your cholesterol and triglyceride levels.

I know you might be wondering how you should take it. It is very easy. Just 2 tablespoons first thing in the morning with a glass of water. For better results, we recommend you to also have a healthy lifestyle. Remember to practice exercise at least 3 times a week and consume good quality food.



Manicure and men?

Rough hands are part of the past. Yes! That’s a big statement all men should know and worry about. The same as bears -that used to be careless-, bitten and tousled nails are not trendy anymore. Please get a manicure!

Bitten and tousled nails are not trendy anymore

Specialized places for men are not necessarily expensive and luxurious nowadays. I am sure today is very normal to even go to a nail’s spa place full of girls where you are the only guy. Today there is almost nothing that can be considered as made for one gender only.

We are good at creating excuses, but did you know how much your nails and hands talk about your personality? Nails you can tell that has never been done before -because they are not trimmed or dirty- can communicate just one thing: you don’t care about your own grooming!

For sure, guys who work in customer service or dealing with people, in general, are more likely to get a manicure. I really understand the fact that we all have busy lives, but to be fair it doesn’t take long. It takes about 45 minutes and can be adjusted into your routine. This is just a matter of willing to do it.

As all the things that have been losing the feature of “one-gender only”, manicure for men is way different to the one that girls need. Both are expected to make you look great, but girls focused more on the nail polish color and style and you, should focus more on the hydration of your hands.

How often should you do it?

At least twice a month you should get your nails trimmed and even though is very common for men to pay to someone to do this for them, you can also do it yourself, for sure on YouTube you can find many tutorials for it.

Little details are always what counts the most. It doesn’t matter if you look after your hair, bear and the way you dress. Without trimmed nails, you will never make a good impression.



Why should you travel more often?

Nothing excites more a person that the idea of going on holidays. Your mind is tasks-free and the only worry is to enjoy the moment, but could you picture yourself living in an endless holiday? Nowadays we get to see more and more people on social media that spend their lives travelling and sharing pictures exploring great places.

Travelling is not as expensive as you think, or maybe what I should tell you instead is that it doesn’t need to be. You can find lots of alternatives, but to be honest, the most important thing is to find your “why”.

Travelling is not as expensive as you think

Main reasons…

If you think that the only reason for travelling is to have nice shots on your Instagram feed, let me tell you that you are missing out on the whole experience. When you travel you have to be open to different stuff. You find that things are better or worse from what you are used to, but is a good opportunity to reflect and be grateful on little things.

On our normal busy lives we are too used to routines and stuff that we do like robots -without thinking- that we don’t even know how to react when something goes out of the plan. Travel to go out of your comfort zone. At the end of the trip, you will realise that you have hidden talents and you are able to do more things than you thought.

Learn from every little thing that you find: people, food and culture. This modern world has made us selfish. We often think that we are above anyone else when it is not true. We are all the same. What we all want is to be recognised and accepted.

When we travel we live in the present moment. We understand that here and now is all we have. The longer the trip, the bigger the knowledge that we take with us. Collect memories, not possessions.

Backpacking as a way of life?

Wherever you go you find backpackers. They are everywhere and have few characteristics in common: are very laid back, open to changes, and enjoy socialization. However, this is just a short and general description of them. But why is backpacking so attractive?

Let’s be honest, share a room at a hostel with strangers is not the coolest thing in the world. Every single person has been raised in different environments and has different backgrounds, so for sure not everyone will be as organized and clean as you. And you also have to be aware that some people snore and others, travel with their partner, so can be noisy and uncomfortable at times, nevertheless, for backpackers, these are just experiences.

The aim is just to travel

For them, people are just very interesting and they don’t see this as a problem. The aim is just to travel and discover as many places as possible and to do it money is key, so hostels are probably the best option.

Backpacking is something that real backpackers do for a minimum of 3 months, but to be honest, nowadays, there are plenty of people staying at hostels just because they cannot afford all the money to pay expensive hotels and instead of spending their savings in accommodation, they prefer to do it in food, tours and adventures in general.

The idea of backpacking is to take just the essentials with you in a backpack and go somewhere without the pressure of having to return on a certain date. You also start your trip in a specific place, but you never know where you will end up.

The reasons for going through journeys like this are multiple, but in general, people are looking for “life”. There is such a big difference between living and just existing, and many people are desperate to change their lives for something meaningful and full of fun.

Best LGBT destinations

There were “pet friendly” places at first and now we are talking about “gay friendly” spots too! How great is it!?  We are so glad to know that nowadays we can go on holidays without fearing rejection and even better… every year people from our community are choosing the  best LGBT destinations  for us to put in our bucket list.

We all want to make the most of our time off, so we have decided to tell you our favourites and we hope you can visit them soon!

Our top 5

  1. Amsterdam:

Did you know Holland was the first country to legalise the homosexual marriage? It Happened in the 2000 and this might be one of the reasons why their Pride Gay Parade is one of the most attended around Europe.

They are also popular when it comes to nightlife and sex shops, but one of the facts that we like the most is the education type that people receive at school. They get to study very well sexuality and reproduction.

  1. Buenos Aires:

Is the most famous in Latin American and its story started in 1990, when the restaurant “Filo” opened its doors welcoming gay people. After it, they have become model to other places around the world. In 2006 and 2008 they were chosen as the best international gay destination.

  1.  Puerto Vallarta:

The weather and beaches are one of the greatest attractions for sure, but something very special and innovative are their hotels. Can you believe that they offer special plans for lesbians and gays? Definitely something that you cannot miss out!

  1. San Francisco:

A gay friendly place since forever! They have fought for our rights for many years and have honoured our existence from the Second War World! The most popular neighbourhood there is Castro.

  1. Mykonos:

Such a lovely place! with its beautiful colours blue and white, this greek island has become in one of the most visited. You can really feel free and be who you are. No doubt about the amazing clubes and beaches to spend your weekend.
