What She Says ... Advice for a Stellar V-Day

Posted by Leighton "Lee" T. on

This month is February. And that means V-Day. It's a week away. Yup. That one day of the year all about her. Mess it up and we're in the dog house. But get it right ...  And to that end, I asked Christina to write some advice from a woman's perspective ... -Lee

It's Christina and I am here with a few Valentine's Day tips for those of you who may need a little reminding of how this should go. Valentine's day is so easy, yet so many guys screw it up. I am here to help make sure that doesn't happen to you. I know what you are already thinking. Why the hell should I listen to you? My woman said she doesn't want a gift. Dude-that is code for, "You know that pair of shoes I showed you that I thought were cute? I like them. You should get them for me."  Here is my best Valentine's Day advice ...                                        

  1. Make a reservation. Don't be the guy that just shows up to a restaurant with your gal the night of Valentine's Day without a reservation. Because you will have a four hour wait. Make a reservation...like right now. 

  2. Hire a babysitter. If you have kids, no they are not coming to dinner with you. Call Grandma to come babysit or ask your neighbor or a friend for a trusted babysitter recommendation.

  3. Buy a gift. Not just any gift, a GREAT gift. This doesn't mean spend a lot. It means be thoughtful. Lingerie is not thoughtful. Trust me.

  4. Be present. Put your damn phone away. Record the game. Open the door for her, hold her hand. Kiss her cheek, tell her you love her. Tell her she's beautiful. At dinner talk about anything other than work or the kids.

  5. Dress to impress. It's Valentine's Day. Be like JT and put on a Suit and Tie. Be well groomed. You want bonus points? Smell good too. Has she ever dropped a little hint and told you when you wear Gaelic Tweed that it smells good? Wear it.      

Treat yourself and get DOUBLE POINTS on select items. Get what you really want this Valentine’s Day: Aftershave Balm, Hand Balm, Lip Balm, Hair Balm or Mustache Wax. Look great, smell great, and get DOUBLE POINTS until February 15th, 2018

Don’t Get Yourself in a Lather. As you know, our goal is to make the best possible shaving soaps. Our handmade artisan Rustic Shaving Soaps are created in small batches, using only six vegan friendly ingredients in the base formula. We set out to craft the easiest lathering, creamiest, & slickest shave soap possible. By making it in small batches by hand, we're able to provide you with an amazing shave soap in amazing smells. And now is the time to stock up - prices are going up March 1st.

Do you like it subtle and spicy or sweet and tangy? Our two latest products have you covered on both counts. [Left] Limited Edition Rustic Shave Soap in Black Pepper is spicy and sophisticated, inspired by the Molton Brown fragrance of the same name. Top notes of black pepper and lemon lead to a spicy-floral middle of cumin, coriander, ginger, jasmine, and violet leaf, all atop a sweet, deep, long-lasting base of oakmoss, musk, amber, and patchouli. Also available in aftershave, aftershave balm, EdP (Cologne), and any other made to order item. [Right] Oud Citron Solid Cologne is perfect for throwing in suitcases, briefcases, gym bags, desk drawers, or the tool belt. Compared to spray cologne, solid cologne lasts longer with less fragrance pollution. It's like a slow burn rather than an explosion of scent. A blast of sharp & tangy citrus greets you — so bright, you can taste it. After the initial citrus blast, the fragrance will meld into a heart of Oud, wood notes, and a hint of lavender.
