So, I leave it up to you…who wore it best?? (more…)

Thanks to my cousin in my 20s I started to develop this sickness that I couldn’t stop from spreading…The Prep Flu. I started desiring colored pants, polos and oxfords like I had never had an itch for before. I wanted to summer on the shore. I wanted to play preppy games. I wanted to dress in pastels and go to the horse races!!!

I’ve been slowly trying to make up for my lost childhood of not being a prep by hanging out on boats and buying more J.Crew. This year I turned another corner, put on my bowtie and grabbed my gorgeous girlfriend, and we went to play the ponies in our Sunday’s best… (more…)

Watch Me Now


We all have our obsessions. A lot of guys start their obsessions early in life. Cars, football, clothes, books…women. My obsession with watches started a bit later, but I’m gladly catching up here in my 30s and growing a collection that would make pops proud.

Let me share my obsession with you… (more…)

You only turn 25 once, so you better do the damn thing while in your moment, right? Unlike me, my boo is a little bit less turnt up. My 25th year on Earth was marked by a 5-day Bacchanal festival of raging held in Chicago.  Knowing that my lady is a bit more classic, a bit more…refined I dare say…than me at 25 lead to a completely different type of adventure…  (more…)

I only just (re)started blogging a couple weeks ago and I’m already getting a ton of questions about all the adventures Steph and I have been going on, and more importantly, what to pack! Here is what it takes to get me out the door…

Vortexs, energy crystals, mystic talismans…ain’t nobody got time for that! What I did love about road-tripping with my Style Queen, Steph of, is that we got a blast of how incredible Mother Nature can unexpectedly be. I never cease to be amazed, and be grateful, for how much beauty is at our finger tips. (more…)

Wear. Stay. Drink. Eat. BRNV14 Roadtrip Part 3


Bucket list – CHECK. Saw my favorite group of all time perform live on day 3 of our Bottlerock Napa Valley road trip…and it was everything we could have hoped and dreamed. Or at least for me it was fulfilling hopes and dreams, for Steph, maybe it was more about filling her tummy, haha!  (more…)
