The guy with the hair

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Pantene. All thoughts and opinions are my own.  I have been very fortunate to have had a full head of hair since I was a little boy—I feel I was always known as “The Guy with The Hair.” But with great hair comes great responsibility: Taking good care of it to keep it healthy, and of course styling it.  I put a lot of effort behind my hair and therefore I genuinely feel proud when getting compliments on it. One of the most asked questions that I get on social media is “what products do you use for your hair?” That’s a good question but in order to get my hair looking great and picture ready, not only does it depend on styling products, but it also depends on technique, your hairstylist and how often you cut it— all necessary components, but none of them would make a difference if I don’t have a base of healthy hair. Let’s begin with the root of …

LG TV, Play my favorite movie.

It’s no secret that I love watching TV, it’s literally my favorite thing to do at home–especially during the holidays. I like to spend as much time as I can at home since I travel so much throughout the year. I love enjoying my house and just kick back and relax with a classic movie or a new show to binge. During this time of the year, there’s nothing like watching all the holiday classics that I grew up loving. Those feel-good movies, the ones I used to watch with my family at home when I was little… it’s just a comfortable feeling to do that and that’s the reason I have a big couch in my living room and an even bigger TV to feel at home. That’s my holiday tradition, after eating a homecooked meal. My top 5 favorite movies to watch during the holidays are: 1-A Charlie Brown Christmas2- The Family Stone3- The Holiday4- Home Alone5-Elf I try to update my TV every now and then, especially since technology is advancing so …

Is it cowboy-style back in vogue?

I’ve been seeing brands I love joining the western-style bandwagon– for example, Versace and I can’t help but wonder: Do I wanna be a cowboy? I remember years ago doing the double-denim look, I liked it and I rocked it a couple of times while traveling. Back then I used to live in the Caribbean and I was wearing speedos every day. I can’t be a cowboy, I love my hair too much to cover it with a hat but here’s my approach to an urban cowboy in Soho, New York. Breaking down the outfit: The jacket is Coach The jean shirt is Guess The belt is ASOS The jeans are Versace The boots are Ankari-Floruss the rings and necklace are Versace

The St. Regis Snow Polo in Aspen

Even when the temperatures drop below zero you still wanna look cute or at least try. This winter I was invited by The St. Regis to attend the glamorous and exciting World Snow Polo Championship celebrated in Aspen, Colorado. It’s the only Snow Polo event that takes place in the United States so it’s kind of a big deal. I was only in Aspen for 3 nights and I brought 3 pieces of luggage– since it is all about winter jackets, winter boots, chunky knits… and fur.  I can’t picture myself in the city walking around like Kramer with a big fluffy, but chic, coat… I brought my A-game to Aspen… Credits include, but aren’t limited to Ferragamo to Armani, Zegna and Coach, Canada goose and Etro… I prefer to wear outfits and outwear that are more of a conversation starter. Here they are– I hope they inspire your winter looks. Some of them are very casual like the first one, and the others are coming straight from the runway, and although they are on …

The Perry Ellis GT

I spent most of my 2018 wearing Perry Ellis. I love how the brand has evolved and ever since they launched it’s PEA collection I kept noticing myself even more attracted to the brand. I love most how effortless, masculine and fresh the designs are. Perry Ellis is part of America’s Heritage in Fashion and Design and when they approached me with this new watch I knew I wanted a part. Although this is the first time posting about it, if you follow me on Instagram and have bird’s eyes you would know that this isn’t my first, second or tenth time wearing it. I slowly, but surely started collecting timepieces, and I’m so glad to have this one by Perry Ellis a part of my collection. This guy is your everyday watch and extremely versatile so you can dress it up or down depending on your mood.  It’s smart to have this watch in your life. That’s the GT, a celebration of the racing gentlemen of the past, with modern aesthetics that keep outfits looking modern and in style. One of the things I …

Weekend at Gurney’s with Ankari Floruss

Soo, Actually, I had a chance to spend a weekend in one of my favorite places in the world, Gurneys Resort in Montauk, with a group of friends celebrating Ankari Floruss‘s fall collection. I love fall, especially upstate, creating outfits for this trip was definitely my favorite part. I paired them all with Ankari Floruss boots and some of my favorite designers. Also here’s a top 5 list of things to do in Montauk while you are staying at Gurney’s 1- Dinner at Scarpetta Beach. One of my favorite Italian restaurants– be sure to get the spaghetti with tomato sauce– it’s simple, but oh so good! This is one of the most popular restaurants in the area, so make sure you make a reservation. Another option is checking out their other restaurant located at Gurney’s Star Island,  Showfish. I’m not big on seafood, and I still loved the food there. 2- Plan on working out. The hotel offers multiples classes and yoga sessions with Chris. If the weather is great the class takes place on …
