Bye Bye Raccoon Eyes

You wake up, wash your face and stare at that mirror at those deep dark circles around your eyes. They bring you down and ruin your day before it even started. You feel like you’ve tried it all and are ready to give up. Well, don’t! There’s a solution for it! Some of us suffer from this condition due to genetics, while others get these dark circles after a long day of work, having a bad night of sleep, or just simply because you’re partying too hard at Gusto (AKA ME!) These dark circles or how I prefer to call it the raccoon eyes is a common condition that doesn’t discriminate gender, age or social status. Meaning, anyone can get them. The solution to avoid these dark circles is the Kiehl’s Age Defender Eye Repair. This cream will work wonders. It is a lifting, anti-wrinkle, dark circle reducing eye cream for men. How does it work? You apply it every day, and that is the only way it will work! This is not considered makeup to …

LOOK YOUR BEST | BJORN BORG

This year I’ve set out resolutions and goals that I wanted to achieve, and for or all of you following my journey on social media you may have take notice, like jumping from a coconut tree to walking a runway in Milan. But one of the biggest accomplishments, also my biggest challenge, is my body. Unfortunately I don’t have any before photos to show you, but I can assure I’ve come a long way. Now. I’m no Mr. Universe, but I’m at a point where I feel great about my body and really happy with the progress I’ve made. Currently my workout regime entails hitting the gym every single day, with a focus of cardio twice a week. Once you start training, and see results, you’ll always return back.  One of my partners that has and continues to help me with my journey is Bjorn Borg. You train hard to look your best, so, why not wear the best in sportswear while breaking a sweat? Once you make the switch from your cotton t-shirts to your first dry-fit …

Creating Memories at The Ritz-Carlton Aruba

I recently had the opportunity to have a staycation at The Ritz-Carlton here in Aruba. The four-day stay was one of the most relaxing and fun breaks I’ve had in a while. The Ritz-Carlton Aruba is located on Palm Beach in Aruba, which is such a beautiful place to be on the Island. The hotel features two beautiful swimming pools with Cabanas, One for adults and the other for families with children. We all love kids, but sometimes we just want a little peace and quiet.  The rooms in the hotel are super spacious, nicely decorated and comfortable with wonderful views of the Caribbean sea. The hotel has many restaurants such as BLT Steak & Solanio with tasty menus. Overall it’s a dream hotel for obvious reasons, but what makes The Ritz-Carlton Aruba stand out from the rest is the staff. From the bell-boys to the waitress at the Cabana by the pool, the staff is the most attentive, considerate and kind workforce I have ever came across in Aruba. You truly feel like a king while staying at The Ritz-Carlton …

BEARD OIL | KIEHL’S

If I had a penny for every time my friends or strangers ask me what I do to groom my beard… I always recommend beard oil, is the best and the only thing you need. Finally a well-known brand like Kiehl’s put on the market a beard oil. I tried it for a couple of weeks, I used 3 times a week, sometimes more, depending how many times I go to the beach. It is very lightweight which is important, you don’t wanna feel oily, it softens the facial hair to keep it looking nice and groomed. It is very important to use beard oil also to help the skin, some of the itchiness, when you are starting to grow your beard, is because it gets dry. Kiehl’s oil has an earthy blend of fresh Sandalwood, Cedarwood, and Eucalyptus essential oils. The Pradaxa oil softens and smooths coarse facial hair and nourishes the skin underneath while gentle exfoliating actives smooth dry, itchy skin.Blend of Cedarwood, Sandalwood, and Eucalyptus essential oils provides a fresh, earthy aromatic experience. …

CREED FRAGRANCES | PENHA

So… I like distinctive perfumes, I like to wear fragrances that are not very common, you know? smells can stick to your brain forever so I have this idea that if I am wearing a great and unusual perfume, well… That scent will stick in the brain of the person right next to me forever, you know what I mean? So in my quest for the perfect Island perfume I stumbled upon Creed a few years ago, I met Virgin Island Water which is one of my signature scents. Since that day Creed has become one of my favorites brands not only for the exclusivity but the quality and trajectory , they have over 250 years designing perfumes for royalty in Europe. Penha in Aruba is carrying Creed and I didn’t know, what a surprise! This House of perfumes started in 1760 creating fragrances for Kings and Queens, the very first one was inspired by King George III , and named Royal English Leather, then Fleurs of Bulgarie was offered to Queen Victoria. Napoleon and his …

GYM CHALLENGE – EVL NUTRITION

So, I was approached by EVL Nutrition to collaborate and feature them, I decided to do something more than just post a picture with my new products, I had the bright idea of doing a 2-month experiment. I asked EVL Nutrition to send me products for me to take during the next 8 weeks and see how good they work on me. I usually take my protein shake and that’s it but for this blog post we went all the way and added a Pre-Workout engine, a Recovery product, the Lean BCAA, and Stacked Protein. So… here a few pictures of how I look now, not my best pictures, but you can see my body. I started taking these products a week ago and I am training 4 days a week. I am taking the Lean BCAA early in the morning when I wake up, then I take the pre workout 30min before I go to the gym, then right after my dumbbell sets, I take two scoops of the protein and before I go to …
