Fades are cool when done correctly, but when they aren’t “faded” they can look more like a bowl cut. Anyone can shave your head, but there is a fine art to a proper fade, one that your friends won’t text your other buddies about when your poorly cut head is turned. Here, that art is explored in step by step fashion. Don’t be the guy waltzing around this summer thinking your “self-fade” looks good; it doesn’t.
Let’s get back to the basics here, fellas. Sure you’re a man; you pay a mortgage, have an unrelenting job and perhaps an equally unrelenting wife. With all that going on who doesn’t forget a few “deets” every once in a while? You’ve been shaving for years but how about a little video refresher course in the art of shaving?
We’ve got another big “How To” from Bullz-Eye that is definitely worth sharing: how to plan a romantic weekend. Buying gifts for a woman can be tough, but you also don’t want holidays, birthdays, or other special events to become a monotonous string of gifts, no matter how thoughtful. Planning a weekend away shows your significant other that you care enough to plan ahead for her pleasure.
Bullz-Eye has put together a guide for planning a great romantic weekend. Here’s a quick look at some of the tips inside:
Usually, you don’t have to plan ahead for breakfasts when you’re out of town, because most hotels now have free or convenient breakfast, or if you’re at a bed and breakfast, it’s one of the perks that they enjoy serving for guests. But you should figure out where you’re having dinner. Assuming you are doing a Friday night to Sunday morning thing, you might want to make dinner reservations for both nights, or at least for Saturday night. Fridays are sometimes fun to explore and find something together. And it doesn’t have to be fancy to be romantic. When we celebrated our first anniversary, we were living in Nashville at the time, and we went to Memphis for the weekend and stumbled upon Rendezvous, the renowned rib joint. We had some ribs, then walked up and down Beale St. drinking what were basically alcoholic slurpees and listening to great live music. In both the Niagara Falls and Memphis trips, I found really nice restaurants and made reservations ahead of time.

Reebok has been on a roll lately with recent entries into the sportingwear market like the huge hits of EasyTone and ZigTech shoe lines. While most companies would sit back and enjoy these successes Reebok chose to expand their formidible lines even further with the RealFlex footwear.
The RealFlex technology is inspired by the barefoot/natural/minimalist running movement that is recognized nationally and is becoming the hottest technology in the running world. Our test pair were the RealFlex Run edition that weigh in at 9.2 ounces sporting 76 “sensors” underfoot that give you an incredibly “natural” feel when running.
“Barefoot or natural running makes a lot of sense from a biomechanics standpoint because all the shock absorption happens in your muscles, not your joints,” said Reebok’s Head of Advanced Innovation, Bill McInnis. “The problem is that natural running works best in the natural world, not on man-made surfaces. In creating RealFlex technology, we took everything that works with natural running and made it work in today’s world. Simply put, RealFlex is natural movement perfected.”
Bullz-Eye took the Audi Q5 out for some review time recently, testing the crossover up against the rest of its very crowded segment. Audi has one thing going for it above other carmakers though – a history of making high quality sedans. Crossovers are all about providing the handling and finesse of a great sports sedan with the utility and extra space of an SUV. It’s a delicate balance, and one Audi was able to strike perfectly.
Here’s and excerpt from the 2011 Audi Q5 review:
The interior of the 2011 Audi Q5 3.2 quattro Tiptronic is one of the top of its class, serving as a reminder of how well Audi knows her customer. The upscale black leather and sliding rear seats make it obvious that interior quality was a top priority for the Audi design team. Our test model sported three zone climate control, heated 12-way power front seats with driver memory, decorative wood inlays, tilt and telescopic adjusted steering column and privacy glass. Other notable features included the 60/40 split folding rear seats with passthrough adjustment and power tailgate. The dash was smart and efficient with an Audi MMI navigation plus package and included Audi’s parking system plus rearview camera, CD/DVD player, HD radio, color driver information system and HDD navigation with voice control. The stand out for us was the Bang & Olufsen sound system. It was off the charts fantastic and we had to struggle not to crank up every song we liked on the included Sirius radio. The seating was roomy enough for five adults and the ride was quiet and smooth. The panoramic sunroof was enormous and enhanced the lighting in the cabin of the Q5. We also found the cargo space behind the rear seats to be larger than expected with more than enough space for those with an active lifestyle.
