A DOLCE BIRTHDAY

So… I turned 21 last weekend, and I can’t  be more happy about it. I like birthdays, like New Years, I feel like they give you a new opportunity to start fresh with new goals and taking new changes. You feel more hopeful, I remember my dad always being more optimistic and energetic right after his birthday.  The best part of birthdays, minus feeling special and doing what I please, cake and treats…..THE GIFTS. This past weekend I wandered the streets of  New York and went to a few cool places downtown to celebrate. Here is my (Dolce) Birthday Suit and all the Dolce & Gabbana pieces I wore this weekend. Let me know your favorite pieces in a comment below. Also, you are still on time to wish me a  happy belated birthday :)!

CLINIQUE FOR MEN

My face tends to look shiny, and the heat in Aruba doesn’t really help. I recently tried the Oil Control mattifying moisturizer by Clinique For Men which I really love for two beneficial reasons, moisturize my skin and keeping my face from looking oily and give it a more matte finish. You can wash your face multiple times and no matter how clean it is it will get shiny throughout the day, it’s only natural. However, you can control that with the new cream from Clinique. Some guys use some grooming products and make up applications, I typically use some products for photo-shoots and such, however, as far as a daily routine goes– I usually apply this Clinique moisturizer after the shower in the morning. I picked up this product at Penha a while back and have been using it religiously since. So, kids, if you’re looking for a cream that will help with the shine and keep you looking proper at all times, look no further. All those photos and selfies that you will …

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 …

Golfing with Ted Baker

This weekend I took a break from my natural habitat AKA the pool and beach to hit the course in my favorite golf resort on the island, The Links by Divi. For the golfing trip, I got to test drive the new Ted Baker Golf Collection. The sporty-yet-sophisticated collection consists of ombre prints, bold colors and ton of functional elements. The collection parts way from what golfing gear use to be, ill-fitting and prints and patterns that were outdated. The new TB collection is giving golf attire a new and more modern definition. These garments are smart with a modern fit and will improve your game. For my golfing adventure, I went with the Birdy Polo in blue and the PLAYGO polo in red. Both polos are made of stretch cotton for ease of movement, so, not only are you ready to play, but your style game is in check too. I paired my tops with The UNPAR trousers, which are full of innovative details. For starters they’re water-repellent, so in case there is an …

VERSACE SWIMWEAR

Swim Briefs, Swim Shorts, Pajama Shirt by Versace _________________________________________________________________ Speedo season, or swimwear in general, is never over in the Caribbean. Here I am sporting my new favorite pair of swim briefs, yes, I know, I call speedos all my briefs, but is the force of habit. Burgundy is a fall color, in my opinion, if you wanna keep a little seasonal tone in your swimwear also this is the perfect piece. I always wear shorts to the beach and brief under, I like to sunbath in speedos, tan lines are very sexy in my opinion. Both pieces are from the newest collection and they’re available online . You can also visit a Versace boutique or Saks to get any of these pieces.    

YES, YOU CAN |BJORN BORG

Once you are determined to look better, to work out hard many aspects of your life change, including the way you dress. If you are here redirected by a link on my instagram, snapchat, twitter, facebook it means you have been following my transformation via social media; half my snaps are at the gym,working out since very early in the morning. Once you get the motivation and the will power to change you can’t be stopped. I have changed my diet, the way I train, I have to admit my PT has been a lot of help, you have to get some guidance, specially when you start this journey later in life, I wasn’t the sporty spice I am now. I have always liked fashion and dressing accordingly for every occasion, why not make your training a special occasion, not only because you look good but these clothes actually help you perform better, now the idea of running wearing clothes made of cotton makes me cringe. Why? it slows you down, you are all wet, it …
