Seven Days, Seven Ways
This week’s #E7
Bringing Sexy Back- Coconut Oil
Nothing has been talked about more by ladies who lunch since Fifty Shades of Grey rolled onto the scene. Coconut Oil is the new magic exilir. Oh, you haven’t heard? Yeah, if you’re “in the know” a jar of this is stored in your nightstand drawer along with whatever else suits your fancy. Natural, non-allergenic, and smelling amazing- it’s suited for every inch of your body (read between the lines, people). I’ve actually replaced my regular body lotion for coconut oil, so I can smell like a vacation every day.
Guilty Pleasure- Savage Love App
Advice Columnists revere other advice columnists. And there is no other columnist I love to love more than Dan Savage’s Savage Love. In 1991, Dan Savage got his start pretty much like I did. He thought the advice that was being given out there was missing his market and he wanted to change that. His market, of course, is the gay and lesbian community. But don’t think for a second that Savage’s advice doesn’t apply to you if you are straight. He tells it like it is. Whether you’re a teen struggling with sexuality or a heterosexual man who wants more adventure in the bedroom, Dan gives sound advice. Loading this app on your phone and viewing the question of the day, is more enjoyable than a mid-day coffee run with a shot of rum. The best part? You realized there are people out there waaaayyyy more twisted than you…and yes, even me.
Fashion Staple- Ray Band Aviators
Classics never go out of style. Yes, I wear my sunglasses at night, indoors,and I’d probably wear them in the shower if I could manage to shave my legs without nicking an artery. I love my Aviators. Don’t tell me Gucci or YSL has a sick pair of oversized lenses that will make me look like a movie star, I don’t care. I’ll be rocking gold-rimmed Aviators ’til the end.
Beat of the Week- Can’t Hold Us by Macklemore
You love “Thrift Shop”, but “Can’t Hold Us” is the jam you’ll want on repeat. The beat is tight and this fast paced rap message is solid. Want something bad enough? Nothing can hold you back from getting it. Signed to no record label, Macklemore is the I-N-D-E-P-E-N-D-E-N-T Hustler through and through. I dig. You will too.
Beauty Steals and Deals- Dr. Lewinn Skin Tone Perfecting Serum
When you fall in love, you never forget how you met the first time. For me, it was while I was on location filming for MTV. I had run out of the high-priced serum I found on a trip to Montreal. I was convinced this stuff changed my face and my life. Knowing it would take at least two weeks to procure more, I needed a new serum fix asap. I walked into a Walgreens in Tampa, Florida, and there he was, Dr. Lewinn’s perfection in a bottle. Living in Florida for the past 17 years I have fallen victim to the damages of too much sun. The perfecting serum has done brilliant work and evened out my skin tone and eliminated some of the dark spots caused by sun exposure. At less than $35 a bottle, it’s realistically priced and in my opinion, better than the expensive stuff my friend’s rave about.
Current Crush- Anderson Cooper
Yeah, I know he’s gay, but he’s a super hot homosexual. The kind you’d have a few too many Chardonnay with at happy hour and try to persuade to feel your boobs just to see if he got a “rise” out of it. (For research purposes, of course.) This Yale educated, CNN anchor, and daytime talk show host has earned his nickname, Silver Fox.
Date of the Week- Sunday Brunch
Be lazy. Linger in bed longer than usual. Skip your workout (or create an alternate one ) and then head out for early afternoon brunch. Mimosas, waffles, Bloody Marys, homefries…you better burn some calories first with that “creative” workout. Or even better, head back to the bedroom for round two…
Make your week amazing!
