After binge watching The Vampire Diaries this past weekend and falling in love all over again with the show (and sexy vamps)- I found this week’s Magnificent Man Candy. He’s been featured before but he’s soo nice I had to make him Magnificent Man Candy twice. It’s none other than the dashing Ian Somerhalder who plays Damon Salvatore.
Monday Motivation ladies!!!!

It’s the first Magnificent Man Candy Monday of 2016. My first Man Candy of the year is none other than the guy who wowed us in Adele’s “Hello” video….Tristan Mack Wilds. He also did a great job in VH1’s The Breaks. If you’re like me you can’t wait to see more of his talents in 2016.
Until the next time
It’s been awhile since I’ve posted a Man Candy pic but after watching Creed during the Thanksgiving weekend I got inspired. This Monday’s Magnificent Man Candy is none other than the gorgeous Micheal B. Jordan. He’s a wonderful actor and very easy on the eyes. Enjoy
