    February 13th marks the beginning of fashion week in NYC! The tents are just about complete at Bryant Park, a dwelling place that holds several runway shows. Most importantly, this biannual occasion attracts the who’s who of the industry…fashion editors, buyers, stylists, photographers, writers and some big names anxious to get a first look at the collection to come… In this case, Fall ’09.

    This is probably one of the coldest months in NYC… temperatures reaching a high of about 20 and if you’re lucky 40 degrees. Nevertheless, as you pound the pavement in your boots, warmest threads, wrapped under your scarf and hat, all while carrying your daily survivals, you must remember… DO IT WITH STYLE, and grace, naturally.

    ‘WHERE YA BOSS AT??’ VALENTINE’S DAY is less than a week away…don’t act brand new!

    Here are some tips to turn your V-Day morning into a sexy affair that can be done together.


    Get Steamy – Take a hot shower, the heat will open pores and soften stubble, making it easier to shave.

    Heat things up – After you dry off, leave his face damp and massage shaving oil into his skin.

    Ready, Set, Shave! – Once your man is ready to be shaved, start with his cheeks and slowly work your way down, leaving the chin area (where the beard is toughest) for last so it is properly softened. Remember to shave in the direction of hair growth to minimize irritation and guarantees smoothest results.

    Be Gentle with Him – Rinse the razor often to clean the blade. Do not press the razor down too hard.

    Cool Off – Finish the shave by rinsing his face with cool water to close pores. Pat, don’t rub, to dry the face.

    Rub Down – Give him a soft, soothing face and shoulder massage using an oil-free moisturizer.

    Just in case he doesn’t have any…You can hit up your local pharmacy for shaving oil. It leaves the skin feeling smoother, as oppose to a shaving gel.

    Warning: Providing your man with a personalized babershop shave can lead to physical activity.

    WOW (Word Of the Week)

    Pontificate (v) – express one’s opinions in a way considered annoyingly pompous and dogmatic.

    (Needless to say, Kanye comes come to mind.)

    Mr. West is certainly known for pontificating on why he’s the better artist.
