It’s finally here y’all…. It’s finally here!! WINTER IN LA!! hahaha. Well, it’s finally starting to feel like winter in LA with cool winds and even rain. Of course, that gives Angelenos (and myself) any excuse to break out some winter layering. Now, I’ve been eyeing this “teddy bear coat” trend for a minute and… consider me on board! It’s such a good balance of warmth and comfort and yet stylishly cool and effortless. Continue Reading
One of my favorite times of the year is the holiday season. It’s not for the gifts and the presents…. ok, ok, those are nice… but to be able to get my friends together, relax and share in each other’s company. One of my ongoing traditions is the annual “beer, pizza and holiday movie” night and this year was a complete success … especially since we had plenty of Stella Artois. Continue Reading
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
One of my goals at the beginning of this year was to travel more and travel often! Well, I have definitely been achieving that and, luckily, I have been traveling in style with my durable aluminum carry-on and luggage from Ricardo Beverly Hills. It seriously has made traveling easier, efficient and oh so stylish with its sleek and classic silver look. Continue Reading
Well, the sun is out and its starting to feel a lot more like summer than spring in LA. I took a small hiatus from my playlist but IM BACK!! Here is a mix of jams (old and new, of course) that are feeling real good this week. Continue Reading
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
