The Blessed Beard

June 4, 2017

Hey guys! Hope everyone has been doing well. So you know that I’ve been covering fashion for a while now, which is why I’m really excited to branch out with my first post on men’s grooming. Many of you have seen through Instagram that I keep a beard pretty consistently (which my mom wishes she could trim off in the middle of the night like the Sour Patch Kid commercial…still love her), which means I’m always open to trying new grooming products. Insert, The Blessed Beard, a family owned business launched in 2016 out of South Carolina by David Pendergrass.…

Sanctuary x TSG

March 27, 2017

Hey folks, I hope everyone has been doing well since the last post! So you guys know how I love watches, which is why I’m super excited to finally share with you a collaboration I’ve been working on with Sanctuary Watches based out of Melbourne, Australia! Created out of the founder’s love for quality timepieces and fine art, inspiration of his birthplace in Melbourne, and the word Sanctuary symbolizing hope and peace, this international brand is on the rise among watch lovers.    A while back I was on the hunt for a classic timepiece, something that could be worn…

Bonobos Style Inspiration: An Urban Affair

January 5, 2017

What’s up guys, I hope everyone is off to a great New Year’s and executing on whatever vision you have set for yourself in 2017! For me, part of that vision is doing more with my blog, growing this audience, and providing content that people will enjoy. I’m really excited to be kicking things off with a project that I’m doing with Bonobos where certain menswear bloggers will be talking about their celebrity style inspiration. I’ve mentioned it before where being a men’s fashion blogger is about creating your own looks but also drawing on inspiration from others. I’m always looking…

Fall Effect

September 22, 2016

Dudes, Ya’ll know what time it is….FALL! Well almost. So this time of year is one of my favorites for a few reasons. One, the weather is spot on, just the right mix of hot and cold. Two, I LOVE to layer clothing. I think you can be so creative with mixing different clothing options and styles during the Fall, and obviously fashion is my creative outlet. And third, it’s the season when I came up with the name for my blog. I was sitting in a coffee shop one Fall, crisp evening when I was thinking to myself how I really…

Dark Knight

September 8, 2016

What’s up guys! So remember how I told you about not doing so great in a workout last week and being bummed about it. Well turns out that shortly after that session I got my first strict muscle up! Some of you may know what that is, for others check it out here. I was pretty pumped event though it’s something a lot of people can do, in some cases multiple at a time. However, it reminded me to be happy with where I am in life, celebrate the small wins while continuing to improve. As a newer blogger in…

Colors of Summer

September 2, 2016

Hey guys, So by now you know that I like to start off each post by talking a little bit about what happened during the week and if there are any lessons that I learned from my experiences. Well, I was at the gym a few days ago, and although it is most definitely my happy place, I left feel super frustrated with myself after this particular session. I didn’t do so well (in my opinion) during the workout and should have gotten a faster time. I was in a bad mood for the rest of the evening even though I…

Old Town

August 26, 2016

Hey guys, Hope everyone is looking forward to the weekend! I sure am. Well, really I’m looking forward to picking up some sweet side tables I ordered earlier in the week for my living room. 🙂 #adulting Currently, my place has a couch, coffee table, a bookshelf, and a TV which was all new when I moved so I have to decorate this place in pieces…because like money doesn’t grow on trees as I thought it did. Also, if any of you have friends who are amazing artists I’d love to hear about them. Having my own place for the…
