A Little More Action

He Had Me At Slip-ons

It’s my personal opinion that a guy in a great pair of shoes is much more likely to get some action, than a guy who doesn’t care about his shoes. Am I right or wrong? Picture your guy (or any cute guy you know) in a pair of beat-up tennis shoes…..ok. Now, picture him in a better pair of shoes…….how was that? Did anything change for you? Amen!

When I saw these Rivieras, I thought to myself, ‘well that’s a nice upgrade from a pair of flip-flops’ and they’re only $69. It’s the kind of thing that could take a pair of khakis and linen shirt to the next level. Plus, they’re lined in terry cloth and doesn’t that just sound heavenly! Saw them at Mr. Porter, which is a drool-worthy, online retailer of designer menswear and offshoot of Net-a-porter.com.

Spring Cleaning

I’ve been posting a bit less lately, but I haven’t been lazy. I got the spring cleaning bug about three weeks ago and got my rear in gear with Spring Cleaning Short-cuts from RealSimple. It’s got everything from windows, to carpet, to curtains, to mattresses and definitely worth a look if you’re contemplating putting on the rubber gloves on this weekend.

I also spruced up the blog with a new theme, an updated Reading section, reformatted Fashion Bookshelf and even added a section for Eating. A girl’s got to eat and I love to cook, so I shared my first recipe of Rustic Potato and Greens Pie, which also happens to be vegetarian. Hope you’ll click-through and check out what I’ve been up to.

Good Clicking:

  1. Energetic, fun blog! The recipe looks fantastic! Thanks. Couldn’t get with the 70 year old styling but it was a smile waiting to happen. Guess I’ll have to join the reading challenge!

    • Hi Pierre,
      It’s always lovely to hear a guy’s perspective on fashion. I’m glad you like the Rivieras — I bet they’d be comfortable for shooting photos all day long.
