Father’s Day Suggestions from Babbleboxx

June 14, 2017

Father’s Day is always something I’ve struggled with. I’m not really close with my dad and have few father figures in my life. However lots of you do and often seek suggestions for male products from me, so I figured I’d partner with Single Edition Media (Babbleboxx) to showcase some Father’s Day gifts perfect for that dad in your life.

Dads are always tough because they never seem to need anything. A razor, a TV, baseball tickets are all outdated and cliche, so take a look at the below and see if any of these products help spark new ideas. Continue Reading…

Feeling like the 1

March 20, 2017

Last week-ish I had the absolute pleasure of traveling to Miami with three of my closest friends (@ethantodd, @thenathanielmanual, @sinkthesun) to stay at the 1 Hotel South Beach. The entire experience was mind-blowingly amazing and will go down as one of my favorite experiences I’ve ever had.  Continue Reading…

I MOVED TO NEW YORK

February 26, 2017

Some of you may already know this but for those that don’t, I have officially moved to New York. I moved about 5 months ago, but am just now really feeling settled. Let’s back up a bit though… I was living in Los Angeles and having the time of my life; I was working at Forever 21 as their Head of Social Media and although I learned a ton and was doing really well, I simply did not feel challenged. My entire life had been about LA, I grew up there, went to University there and started my career there. I knew the city like the back of my hand, but the one thing you should know about me is I like a challenge. So I decided to look elsewhere. Continue Reading…

Shine Bright Like A Lumee

February 7, 2016

Okay, anyone who visits my Instagram knows I like to take a selfie or two… well, I was at home watching the Kardashians one day (isn’t that like everyday?) and I saw they had this magical phone case that lights up when they were Facetiming or taking photos. It was that second, I knew I had to get one and share with you guys. It’s called a Lumee Case and it’s changed my selfie game forever. Don’t believe me? See for yourself Continue Reading…

MALIBU CAFE

January 25, 2016

Took my mom out (I’m a mama’s boy) to Malibu Cafe this morning. We’re both morning people so we scored a reservation at 10:30 am. To be honest, I didn’t know what to expect as I didn’t do much research – well, what a surprise I was in for! Continue Reading…

Rugged And Dapper

December 27, 2015

I recently teamed up with Rugged & Dapper to try out their men’s facial products. I have to say, I am such a geek when it comes to skincare, it’s really important for me to take care of my skin and I like things that smell good as well.

I loved all of the items in the collection that they sent over (clay mask, facial moisturizer, facial cleanser and hair + beard oil), but I have to say, the clay mask and the hair/beard oil are my favorite. The clay mask starts of with a tingly feeling and dries rather nicely. It leaves your skin feeling soft and refreshed. The beard oil smells amazing and thickens/moisturizes your beard – which is great if you have a beard like mine!

Check out their products here: http://www.ruggedanddapper.com/ (if you shop now, most of their products are on sale for the new year!) #SkinFuelForMen

Decorated In Dior

December 10, 2015

Normally, I am not a sunglasses kind of guy. I think I have an odd shaped face for sunnies. However, when in Paris you never say no to Dior! I treated myself to the new Christian Dior Composit1.0 Summer 2015 glasses.

It was a big purchase for me, but one I don’t regret.

Not only will I look extra chic but I’ll also have something to remember Paris by. Bonne soirée Paree, I’ll miss you! Continue Reading…

Scentbird Perfume Service

October 3, 2015

One of the sexiest things to me is a man that smells good. Whether it is oud, leather, musk or citrus, a good scent leaves a lasting impression. Many times I mix colognes because I love the way the different notes activate various triggers to the nose. It’s a chemistry with your body. It’s a different experience per person.

One of the things though is cologne can be expensive and it’s hard to commit to a specific scent. That’s where Scentbird comes in. Continue Reading…
