As an LA native, having fun in the sun is engrained in my blood… but something about enjoying it in the summer is uniquely special. From the fun pool parties on a friend’s roof tops to relaxing outside during the warmer nights, being able to gather the gang and hang out is always such a stellar idea. Of course, every great get together requires a cold refreshing beer… and I always go for Stella Artois. It’s the perfect beer to sip on a warm summer’s day. Continue Reading


Working from home can take a minute to get used to… luckily, I have gotten into a good morning routine that makes being a freelance menswear blogger that much easier. I am all about making moves that make life easier and free up mental space to create. Now, as you all know, I am a coffee drinker… better yet, a cold brew coffee drinker. So, when Cuisinart reached out to partner up with them on their GENIUS cold brew maker, it was a no-brainer… of course I was on board. All throughout the day, you will catch me sipping on a cold brew and nine out of ten I am walking around with a cup (as you have seen in several of my pictures!) Excited to share what my mornings are like while getting ready for the day. Continue Reading

Daily cup of cafecito ”El Cafe Del Futuro” Scholarship with Cafe Bustelo

As a first generation Latino and son of immigrant parents, I am also the first one in my family to go to college. With very little knowledge of the college system, my parents always knew that their kids would go to college and they set that precedent while raising us. School was THE most important part of growing up.

Growing up in a first generation household made things much more difficult because my parents didn’t “just know” what the steps to get to college were or the scholarships that were available to them. What they did know was the importance of education and made sure we stayed focus on school.  Continue Reading
