Chanel Bleu ~ Spicy, Sexy, Sensual

bleu-chanel

Over the holidays The Mr. received the lovely gift of luxy cologne and since then, all us ladies of the house follow him around like dogs smelling him up!

Honestly, in 20 years I think he’s owned only a handful of bottles of cologne and most have not been anything of this quality.  it really has been telling how much more depth of fragrance you get from a fine cologne.  So if you’re in the market for a good quality men’s cologne, I highly recommend Chanel Bleu.

It has lovely, warm subtle notes of sandalwood, ginger and nutmeg, spicy pepper and faint citrus.  Absolutely, divine!

Average 60.-100.

Where Have All The Vests Gone?

I am not sure why I am all of a sudden smitten with men’s vests.  But, I find them while worn casually, to be a really enticing adornment to a mans attire.  I think it’s one of the most underused, yet BEST accessories that a dude can wear in a dressed down sitch or a dressed up one as well!

Wonderful Wellies

I have always had a thing for Wellington boots on guys and gals.  It’s sorta strange, I know.  It’s probably not a common thing for a gal to fancy a dude wearing big rubber rain boots and honestly, I’ve never seen it in my lifetime for real, with the exception of the men at the fish market.  But, I like it.

I think it hearkens back to my love of Ireland, Scotland and England and the shepherds and lads wearing them with their woolen pants tucked in and their big heavy work coats, the little kids splashing through puddles with their Wellies on and pretty lasses in skirts with their big green boots.  I’m such an incurable romantic.

Wellies, or Wellingtons as they are truly called are making quite the impact in men’s and women’s fashion it seems and while I’ll probably always have a fondness for the simple, traditional black or green Wellies, there are some wicked cute ones coming out.

 

Long Live the Man Holster!

The Mr. always seems to have his cargo shorts, jacket pockets and jeans stuffed with wank.  Lots of wank.  I keep threatening to get him a man purse.

I really don’t have an issue with guys carrying bags, I actually kinda like the whole messenger bag trend and it’s better than looking like a kangaroo!

This is another alternative to the man purse and I’d say it way, way hotter!  OK, so you can’t carry your laptop, but it could hold your iPhone and some cash.
