I'm so excited to kick off the "Man of the Moment" feature by introducing you to my boyfriend. You may recall the feature "Man of the Week" that I retired, but due to popular demand, I'm bringing it back with "Man of the Moment," giving you a peek into the medicine cabinets and minds of real men a few times a month. Of course, what a better way to begin than to start with my boyfriend, Joe. I thought it's about time you heard about him, especially since I tweet about him regularly and he so generously agrees to test out some of the men's products I feature. (Yes, that's what you get for dating a beauty editor)! Many of the men's posts I write are thanks to Joe. He inspires them. Have you ever heard of collar stays? You will soon!
Joe's 30, from my hometown in Jersey, and ladies let me tell you, much, much more than a "Man of the Moment" (wink) so I'm going to give you a little more detail. He's in real estate and loves to work out, watch sports (Giants...ew, Yankees...score), looks amazingly handsome in a crisp suit, always has to match his socks, has a talent for cooking (especially Italian dishes) and is very family oriented. His guiltiest pleasures... red wine, Neapolitan pizza, running, me (ha!), martinis, nice dinners and romantic comedies (for real)!
Meet my boyfriend:
What’s in your medicine cabinet?
Axe, Gillette, Cetaphil, Dove for men soap, GNC men's multivitamins
How would you describe your grooming habits?
Wash my hair, shave, rinse, wash my face... in that order. I have a fogless mirror in my shower so I don't have to shave when I get out. It's my favorite thing. I like to be fresh.
Now be honest, how would a woman describe your grooming habits?
Jeannine thinks I'm neat and loves the smell of AXE so she prefers... that to cologne. She also hates that it takes me a total of ten minutes to get ready so I have to wait for her to finish.
When prepping to go out on a date what are the three things you make sure you do?
shower, make sure my clothes are nicely pressed and take a shot of tequila
What’s the first thing you notice about a woman?
The way she walks says a lot. There's nothing sexier than a confident walk.
When it comes to a woman’s beauty what’s your sweet spot?
Well kept feet. If a girl takes care of her feet she takes care of everything else.
