It was a special night for Dean and I, so I needed to look my best. Done all my grooming stuff, and then I looked down at my nails. Danggg I forgot about them.
Booked a mani pedi and literally had to BEG them to squeeze me in at such short notice. Called three places and finally one gave me a spot. I had time in between meetings and I thought this was the perfect opportunity to do up my nails for Dean. I had to prepare for this next meeting so the whole 45 minutes I was on my laptop in between cuticle cleaning and nail buffing. Also was sending voice notes to my colleague. I was on work mode, but I needed to do this for my husband.
That night, I laid out the food nicely and kind of lingered my nails longer and sort of trailed them on the table. He hasn’t said a word about my nails. I kept running my fingers through my hair and coughing. He still didn’t say a word.
So I asked the question men shiver at.
“Notice anything different about me, baby?”
Dean, being no exception, shifted nervously. He pointed out all the things; new hair colour (haven’t been to the salon in months), new clothes (well duh), lost weight (-___-“), better skin (had 2 pimples that day)…
Let’s just get to the conclusion.
LADIES, CANCEL ALL MANICURE SESSIONS. MEN DON’T GIVE TWO HOOTS ABOUT OUR NAILS. NO NEED WASTE MONEY.
Unless you’re dating, of course. Oh those dating days… I could have split ends all over my head and Dean will say nice new haircut. He’d even remember what I said at that restaurant he brought me to 3 months ago. He’d notice everything. Now, he can’t even remember what I wore yesterday.
So when I saw this, I went Hmmm….
Itchy hands, I just had to take the poll.
Go on, humour yourself. Go and take the poll too.
In my efforts of waking up my husband and getting him to notice me, I’m going to start with my scent. Because ok fine maybe he doesn’t notice visual things when he’s really busy like the colour of my top or my shiny nails… but surely all men will remember your scent. When you walk past and there’s a whiff of yummy enchanting scent in the air, he will stop and well… smell the roses!
Downy’s come up with this really unique product that has the ability to “switch” scent with every rub. Each bottle of Downy’s Parfum fabric softener (Mystique, Passion, Attraction, Innocence) has this technology that leaves on fabrics tiny scent particles which stays on fabrics and releases different luxurious scent that changes with the movement of clothes.
Best part is that it switches scent with every rub!
That’s definitely a first for me! A pretty cool invention, I must say.
Gotta get me one of those and see if Dean takes notice! Let me know how it goes with your man too!
Exclusively sold at Giant.
Downy, I mean.
Not your man.
