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!
It's all about maintaining a healthy glow from head to toe! We always think about the winter as a time where you really have to make sure that all that icky skin is exfoliated off your body; however, your skin is a 365 living organism and enjoys being taken care of just like you enjoy showing it off! Today I have a fab roundup that's a must including foot lotions/scrubs from Crabtree & Evelyn, an amazing Acai Sugar Scrub from Fresh, a rum soap bar from Malin+ Goetz and EOS's Summer Fruit Organic Lip Balm which keeps your lips smooth and fabulous!
I may be heading to DR next week but it's for work I swear! I'll be designing my Spring 12 collection for Sebago! But don't think that I'm not thinking of the first vacation that Paul and I will be taking some point soon I hope! Yes we headed out to Austin as our first travel experience as well as to Philly - but once again work! So with that said I'm thinking of warm locales or his beauty bounty when it comes to taking a long weekend in the Hamptons! With that said, he loves beauty as much as I do and so why not have him decked out in some beauty product that would be perfect for him! Now I know that he's all about smelling phenom and I love Ginseng so Molton Brown is the perfect way to spice up some good things! Of course, a clean shaven man is such an important thing so using Schick Hydro is a great way to keep that close shave and combining it with a fab Aloe Vera Shaving Cream tube is perfect!
Everything can be tossed in this fab Vivienne Westwood man tote and of course he can lug a number of things around. Now with it being Spring Break, we had to do a phenomenal giveaway and we can thank the fab people at Schick you can experience the amazing Hydro 5 Blast and Hydro 3 Blast Razors and be travel ready! They are providing us with 3 sets of the below! Whether you're about to jet off or simply care about making sure he stays fabulously smooth, simply tell us where you're honey or guy you care about will be jetting off too! Winners will be selected next Thursday!
When he likes to hang out and have a good day to himself, he has to be comfortable and we're all for that. But sometimes he wants to have a spa day and when he does, nothing says comfy casual like mixing hues of grey, slipping on some Havaianas and making sure that he is only an arms length away from some of his fave products to maintain his skin! Whether you're there to assist him in exfoliating or he does it when you're out with brunch for the girls, this is the perfect look around the house and later on in the spring when the temperatures begin to rise. For now, we're all about keeping him cozy casual but later this week, we'll look at some fab items that he will be sneaking out of your cabinets to ensure that he is sexy smooth now as well as perfect for Valentine's Day, Fashion Week and more!
I've been a fan of the Yes to Carrots line for awhile and have mentioned it on the site various times. I love that the Carrot Body Butter keeps my skin extra moisturized and yet, there are those that love the cooling effects of cucumber or the hydration of tomato. Yesterday, Yes to unveiled a new fruit that will work with age refreshing issues that you may have or want to begin working on from a preventative standpoint. Yes to Blueberries became their answer and this collection has Overnight Hydrating Cream, Intensive Skin Repair Serum, Smoothing Daily Cleanser, Eye Firming Treatment and Daily Repair Treatment. I can only imagine how amazing they smell and although they aren't available until Oct, you can pre-order them now so that you can enjoy these items and get them shipped to you! This is perfect to add to your beauty routine and of course while you're on the site, you can enjoy all of your old favorites!

Clear skin is always in as well as it being smooth! I think that that is probably my biggest beauty MUST. I have been using Palmer's Cocoa Butter since I can remember and I always have the largest tub possible. What I love about it is that when you use it everyday your skin is super soft and has a natural glow about it. I also love having soft feet. Now living on a beach, one of the best natural ways to keep your feet soft is walking on the sand but if you can't get there or want to get some extra softness, I've been a fan of The Body Shop's Foot Scrub for a number of years and love the smell! Great skin is smooth and recently I have fallen in love with Completely Bare Hair Inhibitor which reduces the amount of hair over time which is always a great thing! Finally, the past two weeks I have enjoyed using Garnier Nutritioniste Skin Renew Brusher Cleanser which is a nice way to clean the skin and leaves it smelling fresh and for a lack of a better word - renewed! These are great items to add into your beauty routine to give you that amazing look that you see in magazines!
One weekend my boyfriend and I went out to a really good sushi restaurant in Long Beach and I happened to order a plum wine. I did it because it sounded really good and as much as I love Sake, I wasn't really interested in having it. I loved how sweet and smooth it was! Later on that weekend when we made dinner, we bought Sake and Plum Wine, intending to have it together as a Bonsai. We ended up just drinking the Plum Wine and more specifically, we had selected Fu-Ki Plum. Now I am truly hooked on plum wine and although I have had it with Sake, I prefer to drink it alone. The other weekend we went to Sushi House in Hoboken and I had their Plum Wine - so it is confirmed that this is something that I do enjoy having even when I'm not eating it with sushi or fish. It is absolutely refreshing and I think that it works well with all seasons which is very important as well. I look forward to trying the different kinds and seeing the ways that it can be mixed together.
