GADGET: Canon camera lens mug! How rad is this mug?! This has to be one of coolest repurposed items I have ever seen. This brilliant mug is made from a 24 – 105mm canon lens. It’s totally legit and totally perfect for your “James Bond” loving fella. Wait, is that a camera lens on your desk? No. It’s a coffee mug disguised as a camera lens. Totally 007!

It’s as simple as downloading the app (.99 cents), selecting the kiss graphic, and sending it off to your love’s phone. Caution! Now is not the time to send random kissing messages to your secret crush. You will need to have your crush’s  phone number in order to send the message. And if it is a secret crush. You wouldn’t have her digits. Right? If you do have her digits. One has to ask how you got them. Stalker…..much!

18 Oct

FASHION:  Derek Lam’s leopard printed-smoking slippers and skate board. This high fashion combo is part of  the Target & Neiman Marcus Christmas Collection. I know some of you fell-loves are little shy when it comes to sporting leopard. Its a trendy print that can be quite timeless when worn as a shoe. Step out of your comfort zone and try something a bit different. If you ever get the urge to wear leopard print anywhere else on your body we will need to talk. Just sayin’……

FOOD: Roli Roti Porchetta Sandwich – this here sandwich is a “MAN” sandwich! Pork loin, wrapped in Pork Belly, and slow roasted with herbs until the skin is oh so crispy. The wonder sandwich is then topped with sweet onion marmalade, peppery arugula, and sprinkled with a bit of lavender salt. It’s insane! The men in my office adored this sandwich but us ladies were happy to nosh on it as well.

So, if any of you beautiful men ever find yourself at the San Francisco Ferry Building, be sure to cart your lady over to the Roli Roti Food Truck. I’m positive she will describe you as budding “Food Genius” once again!

TECH: I just got all James Bond on you! That’s right USB cufflinks! Are you dreaming about yourself as James Bond yet? No? Allow me to set the stage. You’re cruising along in your Aston Martin Vanquish (because you got it like that), a beautiful lady is in the passenger seat, and the sun is just about to set. Your destination – a broadway. Suddenly you realize you’ve forgotten the tickets. Your stunning date begins to panic and you smile at her and say, “not to worry, I got this”.  You remove one of your cufflinks (which doubles as a USB). You inset it into your dash-board, and voila the ticket information pops up on the screen. You download the tickets and print them out. Hello! You’re James Bond! Of course you have a printer in your car. Duh! You arrive at the show in record time and your gorgeous date is completely smitten with you! Winning!

Five Famous Wearers of the Bow Tie

26 Sep

With London fashion week taking place last week and the distinct lack of bow-ties that were on show there, we thought that this was the perfect reason to shout the house down about them and take a look at some of the coolest people in history to wear the symmetrical neck tie! You never know, available from companies such as S Buckinghams, we might just convince you to go out there and wear one!

BILL NYE (the Science Guy)

Children throughout the world have grown up learning their basic science from one of the coolest guys on the planet, Bill Nye. Never seen in public without his trademark bow tie, the scientist has gained a new world wide appreciation with the advances of the internet and has a regular fan base throughout many social sites.

Interestingly, Nye is a keen Baseball fan and enjoys experimenting with the physics of the game.

WINSTON CHURCHILL

One of the most memorable British Prime Ministers in history, Churchill has left an ever stretching shadow across history, not only for his wartime victories, but too for his bow-tie attire and top hat.

Though you may not think of Mr. Churchill as much of a fashion icon, he has indeed left an everlasting mark on British culture with his famous V sign, glamorization of the Union Jack, postage stamps and use in insurance advertisements.

FRED ASTAIRE

One of the most famous Broadway singers, actors and musicians ever to hit the stage, Astaire’s career spanned a total of 76 long happy years.

With Astaire still influencing the generations of today, it is to no surprise that in his day, he was also one of the most sought heart throbs in Hollywood and acted alongside many Hollywood beauties including Rita Hayworth, Joan Leslie and Joan Caulfied; picking up a large assortment of awards along the way including two three Golden Globes and one Academy Award.

FRANK SINATRA

The largest name in popular music over the last seventy years, Frank Sinatra was rarely seen without a bow tie, but with thirteen Grammy awards, four Golden Globes and three Academy awards to his name, who could blame him?

Before his death in 1998, Ol’ Blue Eyes had over thirty studio albums under his belt with many of them reaching and gold certificates by the RIAA.

JAMES  BOND

The last but not least of these famous bow tie wearers may well indeed be fictional but James Bond may very well be the most recognised bow tie wearer of the lot.

With the new film, Skyfall coming out this Autumn, get ready to brace yourself for some more bow-tie wearing action flashness!

Though Bond’s favourite drink is not actually the martini (he drank more champagne in the novels than vodka martini), we can rest assured that he is indeed our favourite bow tie wearer!

3 Thing For Him

19 Sep

FASHION: Cole Haan LunarGrand Wingtip Shoes! I love these shoes for men, they’re so RAD!  These wingtip shoes are the perfect balance between polished and edgy. The pop of the neon yellow soles really brings a modern vibe to your outfit. Ladies will think you’re doing it like BOSS when they see you rocking these handsome shoes.

FOOD:  Tom Yum Noodle Soup! With the colder weather fasting approaching indulging in soup is a MUST! Don’t be boring and eat chicken noodle soup. Step out of your comfort zone and try some Tom Yum Noodle Soup. This bowl of sweet n’ spicy deliciousness is sure to warm you up and fill your belly. Tom Yum is a staple soup in Thailand and has some awesome healing benefits. All the fresh garlic, lime juice, peppers, and special broth produces immune-boosting powers to help fight colds and flu virus. The next time you find yourself dining at a Thai restaurant with a date  –  why not order a big, piping hot, bowl of Tom Yum Noodle Soup. Careful sharing the noodles. Having a “Lady and The Tramp” moment isn’t cute when you’re adults. Nope, not cute!

TV SHOW: Copper on BBC America. Ok my sweet fell-loves! I realize some of you work really hard and need sometime to unwind in front of the Telly. Check out COPPER on BBC America, its brilliant!  The show is set in 1864 in New York City and follows the life of Detective Corcoran…….an Irishman who’s lost his wife and daughter. One of my favorite characters is Matthew Freeman the Forensic Scientist who assists Corcoran in solving his crimes. The costumes are pretty ballin’ too. The show does have some frisky scenes, so it’s probably not a great idea to watch the show on a first date. Unless you’re channeling “Rico Suave“.

FASHION: The TOPMAN collection launched at Nordstrom on Monday. This shawl collar cardigan is my pick for the fell-loves! It’s multi-color print is the perfect knitwear to sport this fall. I know some of you Menz might be a little shy when it comes to color but I promise your lady will welcome the change. Plus, if your lady gets cold you can offer her your beautiful cozy cardy. What a gentlemen!

FOOD: Alright…Alright…Alriiiight, you gonna learn today (said in my Kevin Hart voice) about chicken n’ waffles. Okay boys, these aren’t your standard run of the mill chicken n waffles. Nope! This here cornmeal waffle is light and fluffy like a pastry cloud. It’s served with brown sugar honey butter and buttermilk fried chicken. It’s the most delicious waffle that will EVER touch your lips. For those of you NorCal fell-loves, make sure to bring your next brunch date to Brown Sugar Kitchen in Oakland. Your date will think you’re some kind of food genius! 

TECH:  Try the Adidas miCoach Speed Cell and Heart Rate Monitor. It tracks your performance by the second. You can connect the device to your iPhone. How rad is that! The miCoach will set you back $70 for the device and another $70 for Speed Cell. Check it out at adidas.com.

However, I have several friends (whom I trust) that rave about this place! For my non-based NYC readers why not whip up your own batch of fish n’ chips in honor of the 2012 London Olympics!

FASHION: Socks, T-shirts, & Boxers! Fell-loves let’s be honest most of you are notorious for sporty holey socks, t-shirts and, well other unmentionables.
