The Best Gift For A Best Friend

@christianconfidential

The holiday season is officially in full swing which means the countdown to picking up something special for your loved ones is on. For me, I take shopping for presents very seriously. I always try to find ways to not only give my friends gifts that they want but that also puts a huge smile on their faces. This year I’ve teamed up with Best Buy Canada to find the best gift for one of  my best friends, Shayna.

Shayna and I have been friends for as long as I can remember and have shared many memories together. This year I wanted to get her a gift that she’d not only love but something that also highlighted significant moments in our friendship. After spending some time in Best Buy, I came across this cool portable photo printer called the HP Sprocket, that I knew she’d love!

The HP Sprocket is a portable photo printer that’s super easy to use, prints images and stickers instantly and has a clean minimal design. It’s also super light in weight and allows you to print via bluetooth directly from your iPhone.

One of the things that Shayna and I love to do together is travel.  I decided to print a bunch of our favourite photos from our past trips (New York, Miami, West Palm Beach, Paris) and create a photo album for her to have with the Sprocket.

The thing that I love about Best Buy , especially when it comes to holiday shopping is that you can go in looking to find a gift for one person and end up leaving with something for everyone on your list (like the new Fitbit Ionic Watch for your athletic friend)!  Best Buy makes it super easy by having knowledgeable staff in each department and carrying a wide variety of electronics and premium tech gadgets!

If you’ve still got a few people to check off your list, I’d suggest making  a stop at your local Best Buy store or even better you can shop online here.

Good luck guys and happy holidays!

Dressing Up For The Holidays

rwco | christian confidentialIt’s kind of hard for me to believe it but 2015 is shortly coming to an end. I honestly don’t know where the time has gone, I swear to you that it was summer yesterday. That being said, I know that the last few months of the year are going to fly by even quicker due to the holidays and the millions of celebrations occurring at the same time. You guys know, for the most part this year I’ve been opting for more street style looks but when it comes to the holidays as much as I think ripped denim and bomber jackets are always a good idea, it’s probably better to dress up a little more.

I’ve teamed up with my good friends at RW&CO to showcase a look that I would wear to an event or party over the holidays. I opted to dress up their two-tone twill blazer with a collared shirt and a pair of slim fit dress pants. For me, I always try and find a subtle way to differentiate my look from the other men that may be in attendance. Something that’ll give me a little edge over the others or let people know that I didn’t just pick up the first items that I saw at a boutique. I think the two-tone blazer really helps me do that with this look. The material, the colour and the fit let others know that you’re comfortable being different in a room of guys wearing tuxes or following a black and white colour scheme but at the same time is subtle enough to not come off as  if you’re trying too hard. – It’s all about a balance!rwco | christian confidentialIf you’re in the market for a new blazer for the holidays or some dressy options, keep scrolling to the bottom for my “What I’m Wearing” section to get pieces from my look!

Holiday Juicing: A Recipe for Recovery

 

Hangover Helper

The Holidays are a time of indulgence – if you’re like me (and I know you are), you’re gearing up for a couple of busy weeks that will include a lot of champagne drinking, wine sipping, and the occasional celebratory shot or two…  That said, as much as we may love our long nights out, they definitely do take a toll on our bodies.  Symptom number one – the hangover.  Consider the following recipe an early holiday gift from yours truly – this juice is filled with all kinds of healthy deliciousness and always leaves me feeling energized and reinvigorated after a night filled with (a little too much) festive cheer.

Hangover HelperWhat You Need

Spinach – helps the body’s circulatory system | Kale – full of antioxidants |Broccoli – the nutrients in broccoli help get rid of headaches | Parsley – helps cleanse the liver, kidneys, and urinary tract | Celery – helps calm down the nervous system | Cucumber – they taste great! | Green Apples – help remove toxins from the body | Lemon – helps continue the removal of toxins | Grapefruit – really good for cleansing the digestive system |

*and… a Juicer!

Hangover HelperA Few Pointers

Thoroughly wash all vegetables and fruits! | Juice in the order that you feel best works for your machine – every one is different. | Don’t be afraid to use the stalks as well as the leaves, but separate the two first for the most juice! | I serve myself a glass and bottle the rest, with a good shake it’s good for a few days in the fridge.
