Fortunately for your blog host, he has remained a bachelor all of his life. (Having represented men in some 400 divorces in New York during his law career might have something to do with that).

BACHELOR PAD FULL COVERAGE

BACHELORS:

The Write Stuff Adds to Your Professional Image

Out there in the business world, as you VIP Bachelors know, perceptions count, first impressions count, and you want to present a total package of success and class when you are doing deals, making sales, creating capital for your corporate employer, or your own enterprise.

Of course you dress for success, but beyond that, the accessories you carry into the boardroom or at the contract signing can send the message that you have the right stuff.  So, when you’re at a meeting, at a closing, on a sales call, instead of whipping out the laptop, go old school, go conference room first class write stuff–use a leather padfolio.

Picture the difference. 

The rest of the business bozos are going clickety-clack on their computer, looking at their screens, doing what every other drone does.  You, on the other hand, are looking respectfully and intently at the speaker,  or the customer, and with your first class pen, you are taking first class handwritten notes, in your first class leather padfolio like the one seen above.

                          amazon affiliate

Think of the message that sends.  Here’s what it looks like on its grand opening at right.  Space for papers, your business cards, and of course a writing pad, which by the way should be class too.  Not just any old yellow legal pad will do.  

So class up your act, click on the images and explore the alternatives to prove you have the right stuff when it comes to the write stuff.  The image you enhance will be your own.                              

STICK YOUR NECK OUT

BACHELORS:

ROCK YOUR TURTLENECK

As long as you aren’t carrying too much avoirdupois, you are going to be one sexy VIP Bachelor in a turtleneck sweater. 

It’s a classic that’s been around since dinosaurs first learned to dress up, and it can give you that appearance and air of intelligence and mystery that will make you a hit with women of the opposite sex. (Some women of the same sex might like it too, if that’s your thing).

You’ll have those women shaking and stirring when you wear one of these.

James Bond often rocked a turtleneck in the movies, and here’s a picture  at left of Pierce looking molto suave in a black number.  So if you want to be as cool looking as 007, there’s only one thing to do.  Get your own turtleneck by giving a click to  the image above.

BACHELOR CHECK UP

BACHELORS:

PIMP UP YOUR BILL PAYING DAYS

Who out there likes to pay the monthly bills?  Raise your hands. (Don’t see any up…hmmmm.)

Well, okay, so nobody likes to pay the bills, but you can “pimp up” the procedure of writing checks so that you get pizzazz in your payment duties.  You can write those checks in VIP Bachelor style with the right accoutrements.

First stop, let’s take a look at your checkbook.  Is it that pathetic flimsy piece of vinyl that is included with your check order?  Dump it now. (I’ll wait).  Is it in the garbage where it belongs?  Good.  Now try this baby on for size at right instead; it’s eel skin and besides being beautiful, it’s durable as all heck.  Takes some of the sting out of writing checks.

Next, you should be writing out your checks at your command desk, which if you don’t know what I mean by that, you can check out the link to that blog posting at the end of this post.  On that desk, should be a classy pen stand, like the one pictured right.  Wood and leather go together.

Put these two babies together and you won’t feel like a victim every time you pay your bills, you’ll feel like a magnate, a tried and true VIP Bachelor.

Another suggestion: when you write out your checks, use cursive handwriting, you know, the kind that nobody uses anymore. Here’s an idea of what I’m talking about:Image result for public domain image of john adams signature

It makes your check more difficult to alter by some miscreant, and you should also use a full signature like the example above, and not just some quick scrawl that can easily be forged.

You also are going to want a shredder to dispose of the extra crap that comes with your bills in the interest of your own identity protection.  For more on that, go to my post The Command Desk.

Follow this advice, and bill payin’ day will not only be less of a bill pain day, but you’ll make your creditors happy while you do it with VIP Bachelor flair!

BACHELOR YOUTUBE RECOMMENDATIONS

You’ll be glad you did.  Now, don’t forget to regularly come back to me, because otherwise I’ll miss you. 🙂

For the best advice for VIP Bachelors, I heartily recommend this blog…would I lie to you?  So check out all of my postings; several new ones every week.

MAGIC LAMP

BACHELORS:

BRASS DESK LAMP WITH CHARGING PORT

Gentlemen: Way back when, I did a posting on what I referred to as the VIP Bachelor “Command Desk.”   (See link at end of this post).

This is the designation and the design of your home office desk, or your den desk as the command center for your living space.  It is where you want to place the items you need to communicate, compute, plan, and eventually, of course, conquer various Eastern European countries. (That last use is optional).

One of the items I have, and useful it is, is the brass desk lamp with a charging port.  The lamp uses an everywhere available 60 Watt bulb, and the USB port enables you to charge your cell phone right on your desk.

Appliances that can efficiently multi-task can make your life easier, and this “magic lamp” certainly qualifies.

Click on the image above right, and explore the enlightening possibilities.

RESOLUTION REVOLUTION

BACHELORS:

START WORKING ON YOUR 2019 RESOLUTIONS IN DECEMBER 2018

     Gentlemen, we are all familiar with the conditions of Planet Reality, where New Year’s resolutions have about a three week lifespan, dying in the latter part of January of the New Year.

     You’re going to lose weight, you’re going to take a college course, you’re going to find a new insignificant other, you’re going to get a better job, blah, blah blah.

     So what happens?  You hit the gym, hit the books, hit your old girlfriend, (don’t do that) for a couple of times, focusing on your new YOU, but then the old you comes back from vacation and clearly shows you that nope, sorry, it’s gonna be the same old thing, just like last year.

    Well, here’s a different approach to the problem: start working on your New Year’s resolution solutions in the beginning of December.  That gives you a thirty-one day start before the New Year even arrives.

   What you want to do, what you say you are going to do for the New Year, is really all about developing  new habits.  So how long does it take the smart VIP Bachelor to develop a new habit, and make it his own?

     The research is all over the place for that answer.  Maxwell Maltz, the Plastic Surgeon who wrote PSYCHO-CYBERNETICS a million years ago, (1960), opined it took 21 days.  Much newer research came up with 66 days.  But it all depends on the individual.

   Whatever the answer is for you, if you give yourself a thirty one day head start (December) on your New Year’s resolutions, you will know by January 1, whether or not you were kidding yourself, or you have a good shot at accomplishing in the New Year what you said you were going to do.

     What gets measured gets managed, so it’s a good idea to get yourself a special journal to write down your daily progress to your New Year’s goals.  It can help hold you accountable to you.

     Make writing in it a daily ritual (which in itself is a new and useful habit).  If you screw up one day on your way to a better you, don’t sweat it, but record it.  Write down what you did or didn’t do, why, and resolve in writing to get back on track.   

     By doing this is it guaranteed you’ll accomplish all of your resolutions?  Of course not, but it is more likely that you will.  Even if you don’t, even if you fuck it all up, by January 1, you will know that, and get back to being the same old you you have been, without making any further effort.  🙂

   So below is a suggestion for a journal that is refillable, for your journey to a new and better you. Click on the image, check it out and the other offerings on amazon, and select the one that resonates with you.   It’s exciting to be writing about a new and better you.

NOW THAT’S A KNIFE

BACHELORS:

A Simple Useful Swiss Army Knife

No, you aren’t going to be carving the turkey on Thanksgiving with this, but it has a variety of every day uses that are going to make you want this as part of your Every Day Carry, EDC, because you are, of course, one clever VIP Bachelor.

How many times in the office do you need to open an envelope, cut the string of a package your received, or clip a hard copy article from a publication?  Well, you can do all of that with this little knife.

On the personal grooming and first aid side of things, how many times could you use a toothpick after a business lunch (used discreetly of course) or pick out a splinter or a stray hair from your handsome face and body, or do a quick manicure of your nails? (Again discreetly please).

The answer to the above questions is of course, a shitload of times.

Now this little gem is small enough to easily fit into a shirt pocket, and not likely to get you into any trouble with law enforcement authorities.

Very reasonably priced too.

Give it to yourself as a Christmas present by clicking on the image above.

RAIN MAN

BACHELORS:

A WINDPROOF COMPACT UMBRELLA

While the song says “Let a smile be your umbrella on a rainy day,” that’s just a bunch of bullshit.  When you are traipsing around in a torrent, you need something that’s not only compact, but strong as a mother.  

How many times were you out and about on that rainy day when that cheap shit umbrella you bought from some street stand disintegrated, and your brand new sharkskin suit became wetter than a shark?

I know the answer to that one, “Too Fuckin’ many!”

Well, gentlemen, as always here at VIP Bachelor, we have a solution for your situation.  Submitted for your consideration is the Balios Prestige Travel Umbrella, with its real wood handle, high grade black hardened steel shaft and unique thickened premium fiberglass wind-resistant frame system, offering great durability.

Automatic opening and closing of course, and at a very reasonable price for such a high quality item.  Click on the image and get to know what keeping dry is all about.

SEX AND SCENT

BACHELORS:

A NIGHT OUT ON THE NOSE

Gentlemen, when you are out in the clubs prowling and growling for two legged deer, you not only want to look your best, you want to smell your best, because scent can be a super powerful aphrodisiac.

Now, the crisp clean citrus type stuff you wear to the office is not what you want for a night out on the town.  You want something more exotic, something that is not overpowering in its message, but still gets the point across: “let’s get it on!”

Sure, there is a truckload of brands to try, and you should definitely experiment.  But in this post I am going to touch on just two of the old time classics that will definitely capture the attention of those fancy frauleins you are going to run into at the club (and hopefully leave with).

When you’re talking night time scents, you want some of the must have ingredients to be patchouli and/or sandalwood.

Recco #1  DRAKKAR NOIR  

This black bottle of seduction has been around since 1982 and it contains in its base notes both sandalwood and patchouli. (“Base notes” are the heavier oils that hang around in the mixture.  They release over time, they slow the evaporation of the other constituent parts of the fragrance, and these are the things that can help get you laid.) You should definitely try this, so Click the image above.

Recco#2 ZIZANIE 

This classic has been around fifty years longer than Drakkar Noir.  It was a favorite of Frank Sinatra, who knew a thing or two about romancing the ladies.  Of course, it also contains the important potent base notes of patchouli and sandalwood, and it can help you quick to get the chicks (as Sinatra might have said.) Click the image above and do it your way.

VETERAN’S DAY THANK YOU

BACHELORS:

Buy a Veteran a Drink

In the US these days, everybody loves a soldier.  Everyone mouths the words “Thank you for your service.”  (A special shout out to any readers of my generation who served, when we weren’t exactly thanked for our service during the Vietnam era.)Silhouette Of Soldier Image

Now, I happen to know that some of my regular readers come from “Mother Russia,” a country which we weren’t exactly friendly with during the Cold War.

Well guys, no hard feelings for all of those freezing nights I spent listening in on your Warsaw Pact conversations. (In my case it was your former allies, the Czechs.  Here’s a secret:  they really didn’t like you guys, something about the ’68 invasion of their country.  Their on our side now in NATO, so nyah, nyah.)

Enough of that shit.  What follows is some useful stuff for US Veterans:
