Aviate, Navigate, Communicate

It could always be worse.   Those 5 words are often part of my day to day thoughts and feelings. However, I've also been known to say that if it wasn't for bad luck, I would have no luck at all. I guess this sums up March 21st very well.   I was away at work and sleeping when my phone rang at 4:30 am.  I've always told my family that they can call me (no matter the time) because I want them to always feel like I'm within easy reach...even when great distances and time zones separate us.  I figured one of my sons didn't realize the time change.  Imagine my shock and surprise when they informed me (more like yelling) that our...

It's Time to Shave!

It's March 17th (Happy St. Patrick's Day) and I'm staring out the window at a mountain of snow in my backyard.  The melt is very slow and this morning, with coffee in hand, I can still see a few snowflakes falling from the sky.  This year we celebrated 5 years of being online and it's been a wild journey.  The website and store have really changed a lot from those humble beginnings.  Our first few sales happened via FaceBook and 99% of them were to friends and family.  Despite all the changes and despite the growth (my store....not my beard) it's always worth it to take a look back and celebrate the achievements big and small. When it comes to...

What's in store for 2022

Alright, I'll admit it- I was going to title this blog post 2021- "A Year in Review", or perhaps "A Year to Remember....and Forget".  Needless to say we all very much find ourselves in peculiar times and so perhaps I write this blog to end off 2021 with some reflection and then think about all of the possibilities in 2022.   In the last part of 2021, I was talking to a couple of artisans and I remarked that I thought the market was saturated more than ever.  I honestly thought it was all doom and gloom and we would see significant changes.  So despite all this negativity, and while there's no shortage of quality shave soaps out there, I think...

Fall in Love with Fall all Over Again

My kids are back to school and Mother Nature has once again flipped the switch.  Isn't it amazing how we have Summer one day and Fall the next?  This past week we saw temperatures hovering around 3 degrees in the morning here in Winnipeg.  Leaves are changing colour and that can only mean one thing.  It's time to welcome back some great Fall Scents.  Fall is a beautiful season and I can tell, just by talking to customers and watching social media posts, that people are once again turning towards Fall or Autumn scents.  What is a Fall scent?  Fall scents often comprise of warmer scents like amber or sandalwood or with notes of tobacco or maybe even bourbon to...

The Perfect Summer Shave

Summer is in full swing and things are hotter than ever.  There's nothing like a summer shave.  Maybe you're still staying at home but relaxing with a cup of coffee (or something stronger).  Perhaps you are at the cabin enjoying a shave with the outdoors as your background.  (see our home page).  Regardless, Summer is a great time to shave! This is probably my first year where I've been more drawn to unique summer scents or perhaps more fruity and citrus scents compared to previous years.  I don't know why that is but perhaps I'm opening my eyes and my mind to trying new things.  I recently tried Shannon's Soaps- Iced Watermelon- and I am really hooked!  It's a scent that...
