Entering the Unknown! #Mashion & #Meauty

New Series of Blog Posts about Fashion and Beauty from a Man's Perspective! #Mashion & #Meauty. A Comic look at what trends and products in the female market!



I wrote a blog a few months back saying that Women are controlling the Internet, and I was being totally serious. I wasn't patronising them, pandering to them nor simply taking taking the piss. I was being 100% genuine. Even recently a friend of mine asked me if actually belived it and I responded with

"Yes! You can't go anywhere on the Internet without seeing the traces of Female domination"

Which sounded like I was talking about dodgy sites! BUT I wasn't, Lets clear this up, PORN aside, Women have grasped the concept of Internet Blogging very well and created such an enormous community online. I have seen this grow and become something very impressive indeed. I mean for example when I'm on twitter and I tweet out soemthing in the realms of

Latest Podcast is out! Hear us talk about Football and Beer #IamManHearMeRoar

I don't get much response from people who aren't podcast fans of mine.

Thats an example, I have never tweeted that, It would make me look stupid and chauvinistic ( even though I do record podcasts that can sometimes be about guys drinking and chatting shit ) but anyway what I'm trying to say is I don't get much response unless it is aimed at my listeners.

Now, When I started this blog collective and started to find followings and readers I realised whenever people posted about Fashion or Beauty products with the simple hash tags #bbloggers #flbloggers or #lbloggers it opened up a brand new world of Bloggers who wanted to read about beauty and fashion! I realised that most Bloggers are simply female. 

This gave me an idea. Why don't I do some posts on this blog where A Male has his views on the Female world of fashion and Beauty. I have read so many blogs from girls when they discuss latest fashion trends and Beauty products and I always enjoy seeing how enthusiastic they are and how creative they become with them.



I put out a few tweets to the #bbloggers about what sort of things they would like me to discuss and I had heaps of responses from female Bloggers who would like a Males perspective on their world.

Maybe I'm butting in on a world where I am not welcome, but heck if we are suppose to live in a world where we are all equal then surely I can air my views.

So on a regualr basis I shall take a post and dedicate it to some kind of Fashion/beauty product where I shall give my thoughts, views and opinions on. Obviously those that know me well enough will know it will all be written with my tongue firmly in my cheek. 

So, Let me throw my blogging hat into the female dominated arena.....

If you have any topics, Questions or Ideas for this Blog Post Let me know.

  3. Good Idea! I particularly would like to hear your view on contouring, fake tan and possibly a statement lip! Do men think we just look stripy, orange and swollen around the mouth? I often ask my BF what he thinks and he runs away screaming "I DON'T KNOW" True also about the beauty blogging community. My BF has a blog and doesn't do nearly as mine does through interaction on twitter.

    1. OOOOh great Question. That shall be noted and added to list of things to attempt to talk about it. Thank you

      And yeah, I've been noticing the whole Bloggers community for a while being very female orientated. Glad i can attempt to get involved and have a laugh.

  4. I seriously can't wait on your posts. Not only because you're a man who's going to take a look at women's stuff, but because I love the way you write! It's as if you're really talking to me. And I like the humour in your writing!

    And you're right, women do dominate the internet. Especially the blogs on blogger.com. I have another blog on wordpress as well and I have to say that the majority over there is male. Or it's just a coincidence that the blogs I read/find are from males. But in general: many men over there.

    Anyway, welcome to the world of fashion and beauty. I'm excited to read your posts :)

  5. You are absolutely right. It is a woman's world and I, for one, am on the hunt for more male bloggers.

    You are offering something different, a male insight into the world of fashion and beauty and I'm excited to head off and read your posts right now. xx
