Michael here! I have been receiving some messages via email and snap asking about gifts for this holiday season. I thought I would put together a quick list to help give you all some gift ideas for the men in your life. I use all of these items on a regular, if not daily, basis. I tried to recommend things that get daily or weekly use, or things that would help the men in your life be more productive. Happy Holidays!
I carry one of these in my briefcase every time I travel or go into the office. I like to keep my crazy ideas and thoughts in here. It’s also therapeutic to write notes in it when I read or need to get something off my chest.
A cheese plate is always a great gift for the friend that likes to cook. They can place it out while they’re cooking dinner for their friends or use it for appetizers. Plus, this one is SO instagrammable. LOVE it.
Susan is BACK ( aka Michael ) on The Skinny Confidential discussing his favorite subject: TRAVEL ITINERARIES.
You know we promised more travel with the new site launch so ta-da: VENICE, Italy. Florence will make an appearance this month too.
We want to make sure that if we’ve traveled somewhere, you guys get the 411 on what to do, where to go, & of course, the eating/drinking details.
So I’ll let Mr. Professional Itinerary Connoisseur take it from here because to be honest, I’m very much absorbed in Game Of Thrones right now:
As some of you know Lauryn & I recently went to Venice, Italy for her surprise birthday trip. If you follow along on Snapchat you have seen that I really took some time to plan out what I thought would be a really special trip to celebrate Lauryn’s birthday.
Before you ask or wonder, yes Lauryn really was VERY surprised & I was even more surprised that she didn’t figure it out! You would think after hearing 7 announcements, passing by 4 screens with the destination, getting on a connecting flight and watching video clips on the location that she would know exactly where we were going. …
So I’m definitely a chick who loves strength training.
But I’m not like, all gnarly about it…where I’m shoving protein powder down my throat, surrounded by an unnecessary amount of weights & wearing weight lifting gloves ( you know those guys that make those super loud ‘grunts’ while they’re lifting? I can’t ).
I really feel as though a lot of girls get off to a rocky start with poor strength training, so hopefully with this post, I can shift any negative views on it? Let’s hope?
Most of my favorite strength training moves can be found in The Skinny Confidential Book. They’re all moves you can do at-home while watching Real Housewives of Beverly Hills ( OMG, I love Lisa V.! )…which is fab because these are no-gym-needed workouts.
Oh, & just to note: strength training is amazing for building muscles in a feminine way too. You simply lift less & use your own body resistance as opposed to 2394372974 pound weights.
Lately my favorite sexy moves have been arm focused ( totally having an arm moment ). Here are some of my go-to moves:
♡ Squat to Overhead Press
Works quadriceps, hamstrings, butt, abs, shoulders.
