Introducing “3 thing for him” on my blog every Wednesday. I’ve put together a list of three things for him for no particular reason. Just a simple list of 3 things I think my darling Fell-loves would enjoy.
3 Things For Him
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“.
3 Things For Him
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!
3 Things For Him
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.
3 Things for Him (2012 London Olympics)
FASHION: Olympic Flag Tees for the fell-loves! I’m sure many of you, exquisite male creatures are glued to the TV watching the Olympics. I would also bet that some of you are comparing your “epic” high school swimming records to that of Micheal Phelps history making records. Go figure! Here’s a great way to show some Olympic love by sporting your countrymen’s t-shirt. Find a plethora of flag-inspired t-shirts at Yahoo Sports Shop. Prices range from $17.00 – $23.95.
FOOD: Oh the famous Chip Shop in Brooklyn. My taste buds have yet to experience the legendary fish n’ chips or mac n’ cheese at the Chip Shop. 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!
TECH: NBC Olympics Live Extra. I think I just made your day! Here’s a sweet iPhone/iPad app that will ensure you stay connected with all your Olympic obsessed needs. Stats, schedules, athletes, you name it this app has it! Once you download the NBC Olympic Live Extra app, you will be able to watch all the sporting events in “Live Action!” The app is FREE….”getcha some” (as the turtle man would say) not bad eh!
3 Things For Him
IPhone Cases: How RAD are these iPhone cases?! I discovered these little tech wonders on Redbubble. Redbubble is an exceptionally cool website that sells the most unusual iPhone cases and t-shirts. One of the draws to the website is……..local artist can submit their artwork, design an iphone case, and sell it online via Redbubble. Now, that’s pretty exceptional of you to support a local artist!
Food: Breakfast it is the most important meal of the day! These delicious breakfast nachos are sure to make your tummy smile. Plus there’s loads of veggies on them to give your work day that extra energy.
Activity: If it’s Batman you want, then you’re in luck! The last installment in the Batman trilogy will be released Friday, July 20th. The tickets are already selling out. One tip to the single Fell-loves, please DO NOT dress up like batman at the movies theater. I understand your love for the super hero. However, most women would find it a bit creepy if you step to her wearing a cape and mask. Just thought I’d save you the embarrassment in case you were thinking about it.
