Earlier this afternoon, I headed around the corner to the Shops at Columbus Circle to Keep it Smooth Shaven by Gillette and Scope Mouthwash! Brooklyn Decker and Baltimore Raven Super Bowl winner Ray Rice were on hand to host this event which aimed to break two Guiness World Records - World's Largest Shaving Lesson AND the most kisses between a couple within a minute. They actually had members from the GWR on hand with their blazers and official clipboards!
Ray kicked it off by shaving in front of everyone and we also learned that 85% of women that were polled agree that a clean shaven man is preferred when kissing as opposed to a man with stubble. Over 330 stations were set up where men signed up to shave and of course, when it came time for the kissing moment, it was all about Scope Mouthwash to keep the moment fresh and magical! I had to pass along some interesting notes whether you're going out with your significant other, heading out for a first date or just hanging out with friends - in terms of being socially courageous, 29% of men say that asking for the first date takes the most courage while 32% of women note that saying "I Love You" takes some serious courage! Flirting online with someone that you want to date is easier according to 18% of people that were asked and 34% of people asked consider themselves outgoing in social situations! When you know that your personal grooming essentials are on point - it makes it that much easier and I do suggest that although you gargle to get ready, for those of us that have bags or even in your pocket, get a little travel bottle that you can put your Scope in to ensure that your kiss is magical and fresh!
Last night I attended an amazing event with a very good friend of mine, Jeannine Morris from Beauty Sweet Spot. As I headed into Curve which is known for carrying amazing designers that are always on the latest trend. Last night, I was officially introduced to the world of Pucca which is the cutest anime Korean character that is all about love of friends, family and all that is good. After speaking with the creator of this character, I found that Pucca means to kiss and since Valentine’s Day is around the corner, this was a fabulous tie in. The store was decked out in hearts and the Pucca dolls – I’m so obsessed they were the cutest thing and some of them had large earrings which for an accessories stylist, it’s quite a dream!
The DJ kept us dancing and one of the favorite things that came out of the night was receiving my very own Pucca tee! So since it’s a snow day all over the east coast, I wanted to show how this is the perfect look to wear when you’re hanging out at home or your local coffee/tee shop while you get some work done. Yes it’s cold but you don’t have to look like the abdominal snowman – besides love could strike you while you work!
