Gift Ideas for Guys

No clue what to get your guy for Christmas this year?  Well...I don’t know either.  Hands down I think shopping for guys I think is quite difficult.  Mostly because when you think you understand them, they will turn around and tell you they want to be a photographer and next week they want to be a singer but last week they wanted to be a cop.  So anyway ladies, let’s accept the fact that we will never fully understand them and surprising them is probably out of the question.  So let’s just buy them whatever the hell we want.

Before we continue just want you to know that I’m obsessed with Pinterest, so you can follow my “Gift Ideas for Guys” Pinterest board here.

Also, with Black Friday and Cyber Monday you can also sign up with Ebates and get cash back on your online purchases here.  Because I know none of ya’ll are really trying to stand up in them crazy lines right.  But if you are…more power to you

So here are some gift ideas I found.  Enjoy.  Oh and you’re welcome. –Ms. D

1-Tech Gift Ideas

Media Stream Player- So most of us have Netflix of Hulu anyway and the most basics of cable.  So to be able to stream movies from the internet is pretty cool.  This isn’t really a new concept but for those who it is new to…WWOOOOWWWW!!!  AMAAAZZZINNGGG!!!

A Smart Watch- The internet on your wrist…enough said

A Game Console- I won’t even pretend to know the difference between the two, but if you feel like adding to his addiction this holiday, go ahead.

A Phone- This is always a good idea, especially if he is eligible for an upgrade

Smart Gloves- For the Social Media fiends, he can check up your Instagram posts in the freezing cold without getting frost bite

2- Fresh and Clean Ideas

Signature Scents- Why wouldn’t you want a man whosmells like money?

Skin Care Items- Who said guys don’t need to take care of their skin, hook him up with something to help maintain his sexy.

3- Apparel and Accessories

A Coat- I mean it is winter

Bag- A bag for travel or for work

Socks- A man can never have enough socks, especially if he works out or plays sports

Belt- A nice belt to hold up is probably sagging jeans

PS You can have your Black Friday, I’m here for Cyber Monday.  Catch me doing all my Christmas shopping right behind my laptop @4everYoungMsd

A Place to Go

Yesterday was my father’s birthday and to celebrate we went out to eat.  We decided we wanted Jamaican food, well because we’re Jamaican…I’m Jamaican by the way if I’ve never mentioned that.  So anyway, I’ve already been to a few popular NYC Caribbean restaurants such as Negril Village, Sugar Cane and Footprints.  I loved them all but I wanted to find another Caribbean restaurant that was not so far from where I lived…I’m from the Bronx if I’ve never mentioned that either.  (Look at us getting to know each other and stuff)  Anyway, I used my favorite search engine Yelp and found A Place to Go.  No, literally that’s the name.  So cute I love it.  The meal was absolutely delicious.  If I had to choose a favorite it was the jerk chicken spring rolls.  If you’re ever in New Rochelle, NY check this place out.  They also have live RnB music on Thursday nights and live reggae music on Friday nights.  Oh and it’s not that expensive, so guys…date night.

So check out some of my pictures below, and I’ll talk to ya later- Ms. D

DatingDionne101 #5 Faux Worry, Be Happy

Hi young loves, I’m here after a mini hiatus (which isn’t over by the way) but I just wanted to share a few thoughts because there was some foolishness all over my timeline this week. 
Hmmmm ok, so the ballpark of $40,000-$50,000 a year is an average salary right?  A good salary, but still average.  Therefore, it doesn’t not put you in the “gold-digger” category, sorry I don’t know how else to put it.  So why are some men really worried about gold-diggers anyway?  These fears are baseless and irrational.

But before I go any further,  first and foremost if you’re a guy and you meet a girl, and you find her attractive, like her, and you ask her on a 1st date, pay for the damn date.  PERIOD.  Point blank, I don’t care.  I don’t care, I don’t care, and I said I don’t care what nobody gotta say.  Do not bring up later that she ordered a steak and you spent 80$ so now it means she should do something for you or to you. (Rolls eyes)  If you don’t want to spend that much or you don’t really have it, then go find a nice happy hour spot or a coffee shop or something.  If you don’t want to spend anything at all, then don’t ask her to go.  Yes, women can be independent, and we can vote, and we own businesses, and we’re CEO’s, lawyers and doctors etc. etc., but we are still women!  So we wanna to be treated like ladies n’ shit geez.

Uhm what was it my girl Lauryn Hill said?

Okay back to my point… If you have your own car and you rent you a nice place?  Great! That’s awesome and they’re things that you should want as a grown-up.  You have things going for you, you have a cool personality and a woman shows interest in you, then uhm maybe she just might be into you.  Every woman you meet is not trying to “get you” for a few bucks.  Why do you think so many women have time to just go out with you for a free meal?  Like seriously, stop trying to “prove” a girl doesn’t want you for your money (that you don’t really have) by being stingy or not spending any money on a date or asking her to spend money on you as a way of buying your affection.  Now if she chooses to do it on her own, that’s different, but do not ask.  That’s just…ugh…kinda lame. 

Like honestly, unless you’re making over $100,000 a year or something, have zero debt, own property, you’re not so uhmmmmmm “attractive” and your personality SUCKS, then maybe, just maybe you should be on the lookout for these type of gold-digging “women.”  But if you’re so fly, then why wouldn’t she be feeling you?

Oh and stop saying thing like “oh I want to feel special too.”  Sir, you will feel special.  But make her feel special first!  Trust me once a woman knows you’re into her, she is going to go HARD for you?

Peep this lil’ meme right here

Just my 2 cents, but don’t listen to me anyway, I don’t even know what I’m talking about –Ms. D
