Is it just me or is it so hard to get a Christmas list from your girlfriend, fiancé, and or wife? If your significant other is anything like Meg, she hates giving me a straight answer on what she wants for Christmas! She rather send me links to things she loves when she thinks of it, and say "Heres Future Gift Ideas" If your women is anything like mine you just want a straight answer with a list of things they want you to buy them! So here's a list I've put together of things for your favorite lady!
No Shave No
This November I chose to forgo shaving and grooming all together. Not to my surprise my hair grew out of control, but while it was fun to participate in the NO SHAVING Game, I'm ready to clean up. That's why I'm pulling out my new 'stache trimmer to shave away the scruff. I always shower before shaving to open up all my pores, and minimize the razor burn. This all in one trimmer, shaver, and edger made shaving this mane off so easy. So add it to your cart it's on prime!
Fashion x Function
With Dagne Dover
When function and fashion align the word is YES. Yes to spending the money on a good quality backpack. Dagne Dover is just that brand to design such a flexible bag that goes with any outfit or occasion. It's design is the most ideal for work and leisure moments. With it's neoprene fabric (quick drying) it's perfect to take on the slopes this winter. Time to throw away the old beat up backpack and trade it in for a modern, sleek, and durable one.
No New Trend:
Shallow beanies are here & not going anywhere!
Wearing: Carhart Black Beanie | Black Basic | Cotton Dress Pant | Chestnut Boot
Wearing beanies is by no means a new trend, but it is definitely not showing any signs of fading out anytime soon. The shallow beanie has made an impact on not only menswear but also in women's wear as well. It is without a doubt one of the most stylish ways to keep your head warm in the cool of winter. Neutral colors like black and grey are always popular colors, but this season, maybe consider making your beanie a statement piece and going for a brighter color like red or burnt orange. Some color will really elevate your outfit to the next level.

Exploring Philadelphia is never the same adventure each time around. There's a little something for everybody to enjoy as well as new businesses popping up all the time! With all of the options out there, it can be hard to narrow it down, but we're here with some great suggestions for some new lounges, and bars to check out in the area.
This option is a new destination in Fishtown with nearly 15,000 square feet of space for their cocktail lounge and distilling facilities. It's only open Thursday through Sunday and they offer informative tours of their process, so it's worth making a special trip here. If you're a fan of gin cocktails, this is a must try. It's worth noting that the tour comes with a crafted cocktail as well as samples of all of their spirits for under twenty dollars.
The retractable roof is reason enough to check out this amazing establishment if you haven't had the chance to already.

There are Philadelphia themed cocktails such as the "When In Doubt, It's a Jawn", and the bartenders are known for making each of their craft creations extremely intricate. Outdoors you'll often find local food trucks as well as seating and corn hole games for entertainment.
On any given night out on the town, there are the usual inconveniences of finding directions, dealing with traffic and parking, as well as the quest of getting a trust worthy designated driver so everybody gets home safely. While it's easy to pull out your phone and order an Uber or Lyft, taking the step to organize professional transportation will enhance your experience without breaking the bank. Splitting the cost among a group is the easiest way to make sure your Limo in Philly comes at an affordable per person rate. Plus, you have the option of visiting multiple destinations with ease, and this really opens up the possibilities!
