Candace Rose: With Valentines day just a few days away what can we do to get ourselves ready for the big day?
Jeannine Morris: "Well, one thing I think every single woman wants all year round actually is sexy, smooth legs. So I recommend using the Schick Quattro for Women: Bikini Trim Style. It's a cool gadget; have you ever heard of it?"
Candace Rose: I haven't.
Jeannine Morris: "Well, it's a 2-in-1, so on one side it's a four blade razor with conditioning strips, and the other side is a bikini trimmer. It has three adjustable lengths, it's waterproof and battery operated, so you get everything done with the one gadget. And it's pink for Valentines day which I think is super cute, they changed it just for the holiday. And then with the razor, I use the Skintimate Cream Shave. Now this is loaded with moisturizing ingredients like soy and vitamin E, but what I like about it is it's not just like regular shaving creams it's actually more like a lotion, so you just need a very thin layer, and then you'll get those silky smooth legs that are perfect for Valentines day or any date night or any day just for yourself, actually. But Schick is running something on their Facebook page under 'Quattro for Women' where you can take a dating quiz, and if you take the quiz and share it with your friends to find out your dating style, you get a coupon off of the razor which is also a big help.
Next K-Y brand made these date night packs that actually include a $10 off Moviefone.com gift certificate in them. Now we can also go to Walgreens and spend $25 on any KY brand product and get $10 off of Moviefone at the register. So they kind of plan a little date night for you with a gift certificate to the movies which is great.
I don't know about you, but do you find that it's harder to shop for a guy on Valentines day, because I do. I think guys have it easy- flowers, chocolates and they're done."
Candace Rose: Oh, they have it so easy.
Jeannine Morris: "So easy! It's kind of cliche to say 'oh, just send her roses she's done, whatever'. But for guys I love getting guys, fragrance. I think it's personal and I think it's sweet because at the end of the day you win, you know what you want your guy to smell like. So I recommend going to get Viktor & Rolf's fragrance that is called SPICEBOMB. Now this is exclusive to Nordstrom or you can get it at Nordstrom.com. But Nordstrom has these beauty stylists which are kind of like personal shoppers, so they'll take you around and walk you through to sample all these different fragrances, and then you can pick one out that's specific to your man and something you want him to smell like too. So I think that's a great Valentines day gift idea."

Candace Rose: How can we spice up our look for Valentines day?
Jeannine Morris: "Spicing up your look, now here's a piece of advice I'll give to all women out there, people think 'oh it's Valentines day, I want to wear red- maybe a red dress, a red lip'. You know, you don't have to. For guys, they don't really care for the red lip. I hate to break it to you but when women put a red lip on, they do it more for the women out there, right? You want to show off your red lipstick trend because you want to look good for the women. So, remember when it's Valentines day and you have a date, you want to look good for the man. Men like a very natural look, so keep your makeup simple. Make sure you're looking like yourself and keep your accessories and everything simple, kind of go with the natural beauty."
