Hennessey Jeep Grand Cherokee

The Hennessey Jeep Grand Cherokee HPE800 ($235,000) takes Jeep's top-of-the-line SUV and turns it into a veritable speed demon by expanding the factory Hemi V8 from 6.4 to 7.0 L and adding in a twin-turbo forced induction system to achieve 805 hp and a 0-60 time of 3.1 seconds. Of course, all that power isn't useful if you can't harness it, which is why it also boasts an upgraded transmission system, 15.1-inch Brembo brakes in the front and rear, and a lowered, more sporty suspension, and to make sure no one mistakes it for the "regular" version, it also packs lighter alloy wheels, a carbon fiber front end, and a custom leather interior with an Alcantara steering wheel. It'll arrive in 24 well-appointed garages next year.

How Seaweed Can Save Your Skin

Balms and serums containing sea ingredients will last longer if you store them in the fridge.  Side benefit:  They'll feel amazing when you apply them.

"Marine ingredients like algae, moss, and kelp are chock-full of vitamins that help with cell turnover.  They also have moisturizing properties, help skin appear less wrinkly, and feel soothing, especially after shaving," said Amy Wechsler, dermatologist and author of The Mind-Beauty Connection.

Sock It To Me!

Wool. Merino wool. Lambswool. Cashmere. Generally, these cold weather fabrics are associated with luxurious men’s furnishings that include an array of sweaters: v necks, crew necks, turtlenecks, and any other type of neck that a gentleman could think of. Well, it is time to extend the consideration to an unlikely accessory-your socks. Yes, socks. Toes are not magically shielded from winter temperatures. Woolen socks can provide some much needed warmth when walking chilly sidewalks. Time to momentarily set aside your trusty cotton partners and give a stylish woolen pair an equal chance.

How to Throw an Awesome Holiday Party

While throwing parties is often seen as the responsibility of our female counterparts, men—particularly bachelors–have a long history of throwing memorable shindigs. The 1949 edition of Esquire’s Handbook for Hosts says: “Granting that you are a bachelor and not a hermit…you are going to entertain pretty regularly in the apartment and not spend all of your time prowling after a pair of nylon legs.” The book goes on to teach the reader how to cook an impressive meal, mix and serve drinks like a pro, and entertain guests with conversation, games, and even fortune telling.
Unfortunately, this kind of education in being the consummate host, along with the art of hospitality in general, is sorely lacking for the modern man.
So today we'll discuss some of the basics of how to host a great party. Since this is one of the most popular and best times of year to do so, we’ll be focusing on throwing a holiday party, but most of the tips will also apply to throwing a soiree any old time.
