Lifestyle, Toronto

Views // Lavelle

christian confidential | christian thompsonEarlier this week, I took some much needed ‘social time’ to catch up with my friend Jaime over lunch at Toronto’s hot spot, Lavelle. I find it crazy how even though I’m not able to meet up with my friends as often as I’d like, whenever I do, it’s like nothing changed – I love that! Jaime and I fully caught up on life over a few glasses of rosé (obsessed with anything rosé  at the moment), delicious food (the agnolotti pasta is a must try) and one of the best views of Toronto, in my opinion. I snapped a few pics as always for you guys below!

The Key To Confidence

Recently, I was having a conversation with a good friend of mine about confidence. He was asking me for a few tips on how he could build his own and where I get mine from. After discussing it with him for a while, I really took in how significant of a role confidence plays in our lives. There are numerous ways to build confidence but for me, I’m the most confident when I feel and look my best. I teamed up with Philips on a cool project to showcase what a’ Day In My Life’ looks like and how having a  Multigroom 5000 contributes to the confidence that I need to pursue my passions.

I’ve always lived my life with the optimism that everything can change in a moment – it’s literally been the driving factor that has kept me somewhat sane haha! When I’ve been in a bad place in my life, I’d remind myself that it’ll pass and when everything is going really well it also reminds to appreciate the moment. That being said, you never know what might happen, or who you’ll meet on any given day so it’s important to try and put your best self out there as consistently as possible.

You’ll rarely (and I mean rarely) catch me with a clean shaven face or a full blown beard, I’m the guy that likes scruff but not too much scruff (I’m picky, I know haha). It’s important to have a  good shaver in your arsenal to clean up those random hairs and trim your beard when it’s getting too long (or your barber isn’t available) . That’s what I like about the Multigroom 5000, it provides you with good trimming level options, it has turbo power boost (cuts down shaving time) and makes you feel like you’re in total control.

A good chunk of my work involves being in front of the camera and interacting with people, so having a well groomed face is pretty important for me. It might sound trivial to some people but it’s one less thing that I have to worry about and one more thing that makes me feel better about myself.

We shot this lifestyle video over the course of two days to give you guys a glimpse into what a regular day can consist of for me. Check it out below and I hope that you guys like it!
