Ask MISSter Simms - My Boyfriend’s Hygiene Stinks!

bad hygiene

If your boyfriend has bad hygiene, it might be time for a talk…at safe distance.

Dear MISSter Simms,

I have detected a problem with my boyfriend’s hygiene.  I have talked to him about it before, and I don’t know how to bring it up to him again.  The scent is getting worse. It’s his mouth.  It has a bad odor. I have noticed some horrendous plaque build up around his bottom teeth gum area, and it smells strong and yucky. I see the build up and I am sure anyone he is talking to at close proximity can, too. I would be embarrassed. He’s such a sweet guy and a good boyfriend, and I don’t know why he hasn’t done anything about it. I must be getting older because I am not known to stick around when something like this surfaces. At the present time he is not working; living off of unemployment. What the heck do I do because it has come to a point that I don’t want to kiss him, and when he talks I turn my head so that my nose is spared from the force of the odor somewhat. Sometimes when he’s talking, his breath is so overwhelming I feel like the entire room is going to smell like his breath. Something needs to be said, because this is not something I am going to overlook much longer if he doesn’t find a way to cure it. Do you honestly think he cannot smell his own breath? I am dead serious when I ask what do you suggest I do?

Breathe Easy

You know, I ran into a similar situation with my girlfriend this evening.  It went a little something like this…

Me: Hi, girlfriend!

Girlfriend: Ew.  What’s the smell?

Me: …your upper lip…

Girlfriend: No.  I’m pretty sure it’s your butt.  It stinks.

Me: Noooooo waaaaay!

Girlfriend: Totally.

I had just come off a 16 hour flight.  When I got home and stripped off my clothes, sure enough, I realized my butt did stink.

While my girlfriend telling me that my butt stank wasn’t the first thing I wanted to hear upon arriving back home, I’d rather hear it from her than say…a stranger on the bus.  Or a waiter at a restaurant.  Or my boss.  Or one of those annoying children at the mall that don’t know when to shut their mouths.  It shows that she cares about both my own well being (her telling me saves me the embarrassment of having to hear it from someone else) and that of her fellow human beings (they won’t be subjected to my stench).  And that is what you must do!  You must repeatedly tell your boo, for the benefit of himself and the rest of mankind, that his breath is horrible and that he needs to handle it ASAP.  You don’t need to “be nice” or beat around the bushes.  Just tell him straight to his face.  You could be like, “Hey, boyfriend.  I love you and all, but your breath offends me and you have crazy plaque build up that you need to addressed right now.”  Good and sweet people can handle the truth, and it’s better he hears it from you than from someone else who would probably hurt his feelings.  While you’re at it, go out there and buy him some quality tooth paste and one of those fancy electric tooth brushes.  You say he’s living off unemployment, so maybe he just can’t afford to keep his breath smelling fresh.

She’s Got Sole: adidas Consortium Women’s Pack

Looks like the ladies are getting a little more love from adidas Originals‘ top-tier line of sneakers. The Consortium Women’s Pack is the first of its kind from the three-stripe brand. The pack features three sneaker silhouettes. The ZX 700, a Sneakerstuff collaboration, features a blacked out upper constructed with faux snakeskin and suede quarter panels. A Gazelle Vintage has a deconstructed suede upper and a cork footbed with Wood Wood branding. A mid-height Basket Profi rounds out the collection. Its cracked leather upper and polka dot add just enough texture. There is no release date yet, but SGS will keep you ladies posted.

Miss Wax Dust to Dust Collection

miss wax dust to dust

We’ve been a fan of the Miss Wax jewelry line for years and we learned about the new Miss Wax line “Dust to Dust” which embodies celestial and playful blends of leather accessories, laser-cut classics & colorful graphics. I’m loving the use of new materials to the roster especially the leather pieces. With an array of new products, affordable price points & a strong commitment to quality, the new Miss Wax has never been better. The Miss Wax line “Dust to Dust” releases in March 2013 and you’ll be able to find the collection on & on I know it’s a bit early, but now you have something to look forward to - and to save up for.

Jeremy Scott for smart Car

We’ve all seen the Jeremy Scott x adidas wing shoes but a car?  The LA Auto show is now officially under way and last night smart USA unveiled the world premiere of a customized showcar titled smart for jeremy.  The smart for Jeremy vehicle has Jeremy’s signature wings extending to the back of the car.  You’ll look like you’re going fast even when you’re parked!  For those interested in a car like this for themselves, this car is an electric vehicle that will be available to consumers in 2013 - though I’m not sure you can get the wings.

Adding to the event experience was a performance by M.I.A. who lit up the stage next to the car with her energy. Some fans in the audience included Perez Hilton, Liberty Ross, Cameron Silver and ASAP Rocky.
