What’s that perfume that you wear?

So… I’ve been browsing for new perfumes and I visited Penha to try and purchase a few for the upcoming season.  Here the top 3 that caught my attention and nose. Dylan blue by Versace. Here’s to hoping this whole outfit ends up on the floor wearing the new fragrance Dylan Blue from Versace. The scent has a fresh Citrus vibe that is both masculine and versatile, and most importantly it blends with your natural scent and isn’t obnoxious by any means. If you want a cologne that will make a statement- Dylan Blue is for you. L’Envol Eau de Toilette by Cartier Last year I had an opportunity to try and wear L’Envol by Cartier, an elegant and woody cologne that is sweet, masculine, nocturnal and proper for the dapper gentleman. L’Envol Eau de Toillete is a little fresher and vibrant, however, still maintains a few characteristics of the original. This is a fragrance you don’t wear to the office, but an important cocktail reception or gala, or even a special date. The cologne …

BACK IN BERMUDA | Louis Vuitton

And…we’re back in Bermuda for the 35th America’s Cup Presented by Louis Vuitton. Yes… I’m back, only after three short weeks, and I say this without any complaints. This time I had the opportunity to visit the beautiful Island of Bermuda with Louis Vuitton to check out the semi-finals of the America’s Cup. We checked out the races boat-side On board of the gorgeous Spirit of Bermuda. Joining me and the LV team were some of my dear friends, in addition to new ones. We sipped on some champagne while enjoying the oldest race in history and one of the most prestigious events in the world. For the event, I wore some pieces wearing some of my favorite picks from the newest Louis Vuitton America’s Cup collection. Of course, there was some downtime between the races to enjoy the Bermuda beaches. We were fortunate to stay at one of the top-rated hotels on the Island, The Hamilton Princess, which is filled with iconic art pieces and possibly the best restaurant on the island, Marcus. Huge …

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 …

ORLEBAR BROWN’s 10

Orlebar Brown is celebrating their 10 year anniversary this year. I have been a loyal fan since the very beginning, If you have been following me since day one, then you have seen me sporting the brand on many of my Instagram posts. I must say I have more Orlebar Brown shorts in my closet than any other brand. My first pair ever is a Gray Malin collaboration. This pair alone has traveled with me all around the Caribbean. I would say that I really consider it to be a personal treasure and a family heirloom, my first born son will inherit these swim trunks. I was fortunate enough to be invited by Orlebar Brown for their celebration in Bermuda. The invitation came from the man himself, Adam Brown. After so many years admiring his work. It was truly such a thrill to meet the man person. He is a true innovator when it comes to designing swimwear for men. While in Bermuda we stayed at the Hamilton Princess, which is one of the best …

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 …

RIMINI SLIP ONS | BRUNO MAGLI

New York City is always a good Idea. There’s no place like it, especially during the spring season. During my recent trip to the Big Apple, I test drove the Rimini slip-on sneaker from Bruno Magli’s latest collection.  This summer staple is made up of a foil weave calf leather upper and a rubber cup outsole— so no need to worry about comfort or style since both are present.  Bruno Magli is a synonym of elegant design and impeccable craftsmanship, they’re made in Italy after all. The woven leather sneakers are super comfortable and are the right choice, especially if you’re planning on walking all over downtown, across the Brooklyn Bridge, and around Dumbo too.  They’re super versatile too– and can transition beautifully from a  city look to a resort ensemble while on vacation— plus they can be paired with denim, bermuda shorts, or chinos.  Summer style can be a bit bland when wearing solid linen tops and bermuda shorts on the daily. To spice up your look I would throw on an accessory that has texture, like these guys, and would …
