Ladies, Your Gentle Man 2012!!

Okay, sistah friends, this is an FYI for you. See, I find it appalling that some men have no clue on what it takes to be a real gentleman. I believe that a gentleman should truly look good from his head to his shoes. For you women who need the reassurance of what it takes to get your man to that gentlemanly status, read on. And for you men who just have no clue at all, well you definitely need to read on.

1. Grooming ~ A man should always be neat when it comes to his hair, nails and shoes. His hair should be in a tidy, trim fashion. Ponytails won’t do, but should he insist on wearing it long, know that he should keep his hair properly groomed, and it would need to be cut every 2-4 weeks. In my opinion, the best way is for him to wear his hair short; it looks professional and clean. And he shouldn’t have to get it cut as often. His nails should be short enough never to have any dirt underneath them. His shoes should always be shined, and the hair in his nose, ears and between his eyebrows, should always be trimmed.

2. Suit ~ Ah, what can I say about a man in a suit, other than it is an important step towards becoming a gentleman. It should fit him like a charm, be able to be worn everywhere, and make him feel like a million bucks.

3. Shoes ~ Okay Ladies, and wanna be Gents, these are important. Don’t be afraid to spend on a nice pair of wingtips or oxfords. They don’t have to be Ferragamos, but they should look sharp on. Eventually he’ll want a pair of black and brown shoes to go with everything he owns.

4. Watch ~ A classic watch like a Movado or an Armani, can do a lot for his image. Weil watches and Baume & Mercier watches are also classic, timeless timepieces. There’s just something so much more gentlemanly about looking at his wrist to tell the time rather than pulling his cell phone awkwardly out of his jean pocket.

5. Casual ~ The casual look for the weekend is essential. A nice pair of slacks or dark designer jeans like Sean John or Ralph Lauren, with a nice polo or cashmere sweater, pair well together. Loafers with argyle socks never go out of style.

6. Attitude ~ Ladies, and wanna be Gents, this is key, key, key. He can’t play the part without learning some lines. Be polite, chivalrous, and read lots of books. They will improve his vocabulary and make him feel more confident in intellectual circles.

Okay, so that’s it. When he applies these 6 simple steps to his life, it influences him positively in all other ways. He will be generally clean, fit, and even if he is butt-ugly, he will still turn heads. So go out there and start showing the world that the modern gentleman is here to stay. Good luck to you and your man. And to all the wanna be Gents, much success to you as well!!! ~smooches Dah-ling~


Be fab~YOU~lous!!

Why Should You Be fab~YOU~lous?
I am assuming you are already a fab~YOU~lous person anyway. You have accomplished many great things and done a lot for others in your life. However, I feel that if we aren’t striving daily to be a more fab~YOU~lous person, we begin to feel comfortable and complacent.   That’s a no no.  We always have to keep it moving.  I love making everyday different than the last and experience something different as often as possible. With that being said, we should all challenge ourselves to be more fab~YOU~lous, so that we can continue to grow and develop at whatever point we are in our lives.

What are the Benefits of Being fab~YOU~lous?
By attempting to be a more fab~YOU~lous you,  you will be happier, more productive, and at a better place in your life. You will start to see new opportunities that once were never a reality or even possible. You will meet new and exciting people that may give more meaning to your life. These benefits just touch the surface of the positive impact of attempting to be a more fab~YOU~lous you.

Ok, so What Makes You so Knowledgable About Being fab~YOU~lous?
That’s a great question and I am glad you asked. I am not perfect. I have many flaws. However, daily, I try to be a better person because I know that by doing so I am adding value to my existence and hopefully, to others as well. I am bringing more value to the great gift of life. If there is anyone that can strive to be a better person, it is me. So, if I am seeing the positives from trying to be a better person, I know you can gain from attempting this small action too. I am no motivational speaker, but I do know that I have the skills to assist others in a modest way. You don’t have to take any of this advice. But, it never hurts to try something new that may just improve your life. The worst case scenario is that I don’t help you in any way and you go back to your already fab~YOU~lous life.

Stay tuned for the launching of the Be fab~YOU~lous Ebook, coming in 2012!!

It’s Thanksgiving 2011!!! What are you most thankful for??

Well today we will all enjoy celebrating our thankfulness with family and friends. With today being Thanksgiving, it is a good time to reflect on the people we care about, and all we have to be thankful for. Take the time to tell someone how much they mean to you, or that you appreciate what they do. You will make their day!

Reach out to others by remembering to say “thank you,” or by showing a random act of kindness. Pick up the phone to rekindle a relationship with a friend you miss. Don’t let anymore time pass by. You both will be so thankful for making the effort to connect once again. Especially during these tough economic times. Our lives will be richer if we will remember to cherish relationships, and count our many blessings every day. A very Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family!
