“A dress makes no sense unless it inspires men to want to take it off you,” - French novelist, Françoise Sagan.

Thick eyebrows are back!! Yes, and as a proud owner of bold brows I am ecstatic to see models flaunt amazingly thick brows. Ok, Brooke Shields may have been the original flaunter of thick eyebrows, but today we can add a few more top models to the list. Models who make me proud to be a non-plucker. Yes, I listened to my mother when I was a teenager and didn’t touch my eyebrows. Dare I say…my mother was right?! Ok fine. I owe my bold eyebrows to her. Perhaps, these models may have their mom’s to thank as well. So ladies, own those bold brows and let them frame your face. I’m not saying bold is the only way to brow, but I do believe flaunting daring brows deserves a high brow.

Just can’t get enough.

Eventually all the pieces fall into place.until then, laugh at the confusion, live for the moment, and know that everything happens for a reason.

This is not the first time I have written about man-uals. Books teaching boys how to act like men. But after living in NYC for a few years I think it needs to be reiterated. My latest discovery is the “Art of Manliness” reviving the lost art of manliness. WIth tidbits and tricks for boys to become men, this site may help the metro-sexual nyc boys running around. Let’s be serious all men can benefit from learning manly skills.

De Santos, a perfect West Village bar. Perhaps a place to even meet a guy.
Remember how dating back in school was much easier. OK, let me rephrase: meeting people was much easier. To be honest, not sure if dating ever gets easier. Nevertheless, it was much easier to meet people. The possibilities (and places) to meet people were numerous. Butterflies… with the hope that you would run into “him” on campus. You could pass him in the hallway, or run into them in the library. Not to mention, each semester opened up a new pool of possibilities. All were excuses to get dressed up for class or encourage us to go study in the library. They all had the pay-offs of coffee breaks and dates.
Those were the days. But now, with living in NYC, there is no one place meet guys. The butterfly run-ins rarely happen. And you may never see that guy you hit it off with one night. You don’t have an excuse to facilitate a casual run in, unless you met this guy at work (a post for another day). So where do you meet a guy? Well, that is something I am still trying to figure out…
Who says you can’t wear a bra out in public. OK maybe you can’t, but a bra-lette, I think so! And no excuses about not feeling comfortable enough to wear one. Just pair it with a high waisted skirt and a nice tan. Now it depends how sexy you want to go, but I would stay away from lace and opt for one that has nice stitching and thicker fabric. Beads, sparkles, yes please. No low rise jeans though. A high wasted skirt, pants and maybe even some conservative shorts, just hide the belly-button.
