Gift Guide: First Time for Everything

40-year-old-virginOne of the best parts about being in a relationship other than having someone to keep your feet warm is the level of intimacy that can be reached.  I’m not sure all guys understand that the longer you’re with a woman and the more she trusts you, the hotter things can (and will) get.  While I’m a firm believer that things should be steamy year round, even in the chilly winter months, it’s nice to have a day especially dedicated to pure romance.  So, have some fun with it and be thankful that you’ve got somebody to share your hopes, dreams, and dirty little secrets with.

Why Did You Wear That: Cocktail Hour

By |December 31st, 2013|Why Did You Wear That?|

nail art ringsThe one garnish certain to undoubtedly make a drink that much more chic with each clink of the glass is one that you bring to the party yourself.  No, you aren’t going to tote a jar of bleu cheese stuffed olives in your Prada to the next party.  This garnish is right at your fingertips… well, really just your fingers.  The fastest way to add extra bling is by slipping on a cocktail ring while sipping on a cocktail or two.  Originally made popular during the prohibition era as a kind of flamboyant “eff you”, the cocktail ring later became popular with single ladies who wore giant jewels on their right ring fingers as a sign of independence.  Being a woman looking forward to planting a kiss on no one other than her pooch this year, I like the idea of a cocktail ring in that context.  But whether you’re single or attached, there’s nothing wrong with adding an extra rock for cocktail hour.

Setting the Mood: Baby, There’s a Shark in the Water

By |August 13th, 2012|Setting the Mood|

skarksSo apparently it’s everyone’s (except for me) favorite week.  What week is that you may ask?  Oh, just Shark Week.  Why sharks are so intriguing to the general population, I will never completely understand.  I don’t see why we don’t have something like “Koala Bear Week” instead.  Full disclosure:  I have no interest in sharks.  They scare me  and you aren’t going to find me in a shark cage anytime this century.  I’m not even going to lie- just looking up these pictures of sharks made me nervous.  But, I aim to please so strap on your scuba tank, churn up the chum, and keep your eyes peeled for Jaws… ’cause I’m getting involved in Shark Week the only way I know how: with some “shark-cessories.”  (I just made that up).
