And now, a few indispensible tricks from The Gentleman’s Guide to Life – a highly useful and totally hilarious book by Steve Friedman, a former GQ senior editor, award-winning sportswriter and one of the most brilliant, charming and well-shaved guys we know.
Steve adds that if you have money to burn, you should go to The Art of the Shave barber shop in New York. “There’s no closer shave,” he says. “Also, use one of the new, quadruple-head, vibrating razors from Gillette [available at Wal-Mart, Kmart and Drugstore.com]. You’ll never want to use a regular blade again.”

I’m loving this look. Not only does it have an utterly romantic quality, it’s also modern and fresh. Better yet, this type of lush, jewel-like lip stain works as a great counterpoint to all the pale, blush-tone colors around this season. (Note: It looks especially excellent when paired with clear skin, lightly defined eyes and a touch of mauve blush.)
Oh, and did I mention how easy it is?
Here’s the pretty shade that makes it all happen for me:
So: What hot lip color are you craving for spring?
Get your sun kissed look without the skin damage. Protect your skin. No need to lay in the sun for hours, to get the glowing sun tan look, protect with Motives liquid powder mineral foundation and to get that glowing look use Motives by Loren Ridinger Miami Glow.
How are we feeling about men and jewelry? The only thing I find universally acceptable are watches, a ring passed down from a grandfather or a thin silver or gold band, and anything leather and surfer-y. Other than that, no way. And I mean, really no way.
And yet: I take it all back, sort of, in the case of Mickey Rourke: Dog charms! Non-functional belt chains! Sherlock Holmes pocket-watch fobs! Random leather knots! He looks fantastic and it kills me to say it, but all that bling makes his look.
So what kind of jewelry do you like on guys? Guys, what kind of jewelry do you like to wear? Can we chat about this?
