Recently I had the pleasure of traveling to Budapest for the first time, and it was an incredible experience. I traveled with Corinthia Hotels and wrote an article for AskMen.com on their five-star hotel there which has stood for over a century and is Europe’s first grand dame hotel. I spent four days in Budapest after flying in from London with British Airways—which was just over a two hour flight—and got to experience a little bit of everything.
I toured the historical and iconic sites such as Buda Castle (the city view from it is the photo at top), the Szechenyi Thermal Baths and Heroes Square (above), shopped along the famed Andrássy Avenue and at the Great Market Hall, ate at restaurants such as Gundel and Reteshaz, and checked out the city street art and the popular ruin bar Szimpla kert. Get a taste of Budapest below with some more of my snaps, with more posts soon!
Since film and TV take part in a traveler’s lifestyle as much as music, and since I cover entertainment overall from time to time as a journalist, I’m going to occasionally start sharing posts on favorite film and TV moments of mine as they pop up. For a quick post to start and since I am comic book fan, Marvel has just released it’s first official teaser trailer for Avengers: Age of Ultron. Watch it below:
(2)XIST Fashion Show SS 2015: André Ziehe, Saville Dorfman, Emilio Flores, Thor Bülow and More Male Models
While I sadly didn’t get a chance to make it to the annual (2)XIST fashion show this year due to having to catch up on projects, I did stalk/follow along on social media. As I wait for the official photos to be released to see the whole spring/summer 2015 collection, I couldn’t help both notice all the eye candy. Read the rest of this entry

Haven’t done a new song select in a while, but as soon as I heard Gwen Stefani’s new solo single, “Baby Don’t Lie”, had to share it! Check it out below: Read the rest of this entry
As a travel freelance writer and blogger, time zone changes can get annoying. I’m often good a changing my watch and phone when readying to take off, but I sometimes do forget and can get worried if I’m catching another flight in a new time zone and I forget about the time change. It happens when there’s just an hour difference, and while it usually gets worked out within 10 minutes or so, there’s really no need for the worrying to occur. Now with the Seiko Astron GPS Solar Watch, wearers don’t ever have to worry about remembering any time zone changes. Trust me, it came in handy for me when I was recently in Vancouver coming from Budapest. Read the rest of this entry
Sunny and warm, you only need a handful of accessories for a trio out to Vegas if you’ll be spending your days being pampered in one of its dozen spas, hanging out in your hotel or resort, or catching rays out by the pool. Shot in the new Delano Las Vegas and by the Mandalay Bay pool, my accessory picks below: Read the rest of this entry
Fall is a great time to layer, and a simple way to do for a casual look is with a denim jacket and statement accessories. This fall has already been such a crazy time for me that I haven’t been posting as much as I usually do–sorry! Just got back from traveling Europe (so excited to share about that soon) and am now in Vancouver. Have had to keep styles rather casual so thought would be a good time to post about that.
For Details I chatted with Lacoste’s creative director Felipe Oliveira Baptista during fashion week to get the designer’s tips on wearing the brand’s signature and iconic style, the polo. From our conversation, these are the polo styling tips I gathered that are easy to remember and to keep in when dressing or shopping for your next polo. Read the rest of this entry
While in Vancouver this summer, instead of running the lululemon SeaWheeze half marathon I went for a bike ride with others who were also sitting out the run. We rode along the runner’s route to cheer and see the run, which brought throughout the city over across one of the several bridges over to Kitsilano Beach (also known as “Kits” Beach). There with the picturesque background (though almost everywhere in Vancouver – at least where I was – seemed to be picture qorthy) I decided to do an importune outfit shoot. More below:
