Monday Favorites: #MCM

A lot of the time I post about style and makeup, and products I’m loving. That’s the point of a Style Blog after all, right? But I find a lot of you all really love when I post about more personal topics. I know I have mentioned my boyfriend in my Valentine’s Day post, and by popular demand I decided to incorporate him in another post, and seeing that it’s Man Crush Monday, it just seems like the perfect opportunity!

Here’s an obligatory selfie from this past weekend. Isn’t he just the cutest?

In the spirit of spring cleaning (I posted about my own here), I wanted to share some things I’m loving that he’s incorporating to update his spring wardrobe.

1.) Graphic Tees

My Valentine’s post also mentioned this sweatshirt I got him for Christmas, and it is a running wardrobe favorite. He’s been loving graphic tees lately, but I mean, he may have learned from the best

Case in point. You can find my oversized Wildfox pullover (on major sale) here. I do have all the feels for the pizza shirt though, and have linked a similar one for your man here. I’m telling you that you can never go wrong with a graphic tee. They work for everyone!

2.) New Undies 

While it might not be the most glamorous topic of conversation, lets be honest that cleaning out that underwear drawer is almost always a necessity when it comes to spring cleaning!

How great are these UFM underwear? They’re comfortable, adjustable and the fabric is so super soft. Do these come in a ladies version? Asking for a friend.

Anyway, they come in many different color, style and size options (I was loving the camo and the red), so I definitely suggest checking these out if you know the man in your life is looking for a little bit of an update in the underwear department!

3.) Manly Candles

Honestly, I don’t think there’s many guys out there who want their space smelling like cupcakes and fresh cut flowers, so that’s why you must opt for a great masculine scented candle. My boyfriend just also moved into a new apartment, so some great candles are a must have in my opinion.

My favorite candles in general as of late have been the Candelles brand. I got my boyfriend Sweet Tobacco (pictured above with my Fred and Far pinky ring) and another scent that has since sold out. I am also currently loving the Cozy Nights candle from Target (it’s also less than $10 right now), and Mahogany Teakwood from Bath and Body Works has always been my all time fave.

4. Cologne

Cologne can be a hit or miss item for me. A good fragrance however, is the perfect way to add some variety going into a new season. There have been two samples I received that I gave to my boyfriend that I am absolutely in love with. The first is the Maison Margiela At the Barber’s cologne. Guys, this one is so good.  It is honestly just the perfect manly scent and that is the best way I can possibly describe it.

The second one I’m loving is the Viktor and Rolf Spicebomb. I’ve always been a personal fan of Flowerbomb, and this is like its sexy, spicy, manly counterpart.

I hope you enjoyed this spin on my usual Monday Favorites! Now get to helping your man get a head start on his spring cleaning.
