Whether you are a die-hard romantic or convinced that each year cupid pulls back his bow in the name of the “capitalist pig”… Valentines Day remains at the epicenter of iconoclastic holidays and one we where we can all get our “heart on” and do so without apology.
While some opt for a homespun gift, a romantic meal or a heartfelt poem, others trip the light fantastic and create a day, a night and a morning after that simply transforms romance taking it to a new level of bling.
Throughout the year, as I travel the globe with my alter ego Celebbuzzz (@celebbuzzz) dishing up the celebrity news over a big ol’ slice of humble pie, I come across some rather remarkable items that can only be described as “uber fab”. Many of them are shared with me by my “famous friends” as there is one good thing about those who have realized celebrity status, they love to uncover new goodies and share their treasures and finds with the masses.
So, much like my “other” – Celebbuzzz, I have a golden rule my momma’ taught me… “If you don’t have anything nice to buzz about, don’t buzz at all…” That being said, I have tried every product I will mention and I have tried hundreds of others I did not mention. If I didn’t like it, I simply don’t mention it as I am one voice and one man. But if I liked it… Bring it! Cause’ I will shout it from to mount without regret!
But what good is another tired ol’ gift guide? I simply could not burden you with such silly fodder. This year, after talking to some of my nearest and dearest lady friends, I have been educated. Yes the “women folk” do like be remembered (TAKE NOTE MEN), but they all agree that a man that looks good, smells good and tastes good will keep cupid busy slinging those arrows.
And away we go!
The biggest turn off for any gal is when her Mr. Man tries to cozy up and make it a threesome. Not that kind of trio you dirty birds, I am referring to you, him and “Hallie Tosus” (aka SBS – Stinky Breath Syndrome). What’s the solution? Simple, check out the Sonicare toothbrush… Not romantic enough? Ok you go right ahead and find the passion beneath his garlic breath.
Ladies how much do you enjoy shaving your legs? Exactly my point. Well here is a little secret, it’s not all that to shave ya’ face every day either. That being said you deserve your man soft as can be when he puckers up for that Valentine smooch and the people at Norelco have made it easy. I have to admit I was never a fan of electric razors as no matter how careful I wash I ended up with what looked like a bad case of diaper rash on my face but the folks at Norelco turned my “butta face” back into a baby face with ease!
I have a very low threshold for personal care products that don’t work. If you state you will take away the puffiness under my eyes… I expect that after a long flight they won’t need to put on the makeup with a spatula before I do an interview. Much the same, If you make the claim that when my hair meets you styling “stuff” it will forever be a match made in heaven… I expect a major Bromance. Some might think I am asking too much, but a big Ol’ “thank you” to my friends at Kevin Murphy… Your Easy Rider took away the frizz and gave me the flexible hold as promised.
And as for playing favorites? I like what I like… So this year, while I was running around catching an interview with the new Miss America and enjoying the show out front Kevin Murphy came to the rescue again with his Night Rider, Matte textured paste. He kept my hair in place and the tiara never slipped even an inch!
