Finding the Right High Speed Internet for Blogging (and to Stay Connected)

Dell-XPS-13-Laptop-travel

While having a reliable service on the go and while traveling is a necessity, it’s just as important to having a strong Internet connection at home. I recently partnered with Frontier Communications for a series of blog posts each on there services, and after getting a taste of what they offer, my favorite is the High Speed Internet service. A fast and strong connection is very important for what I do as both a blogger and a freelancer, and let’s face it, in this digitally driven time we live in, a fast Internet connection is important to almost every facet of life.

Once Upon a Time at Manchester Pride 2016: PHOTOS

machester-pride-festival-weekend-2016-1-canal-street

After years of traveling to the England, I’ve finally got the chance to explore a city beyond London, and I decided to make it Manchester for its annual Pride weekend (known as The Big Weekend – and boy was it a big one!). Unsure what to expect when I arrived, I boarded my train from London after spending a week there (more to come on that), and arrived into the Manchester Piccadilly station. I followed the gaggle of gays that were on my two-hour train ride to make sure I was headed out the right direction, and my instinct proved me right. I was literally welcomed by a sea of rainbows flags at the station and in the city center.

A short walk down from the station (and really close to the Holiday Inn Manchester City Centre), was one of the entrances to the four-day Pride festival at the famous Canal Street (the heart of the gay village in the city). The Village is both party central for the festival weekend (and year-round for the community). Hundreds of the LGBT community were outside celebrating almost nonstop all weekend long. Check out photos from the festival below, as well as the parade (which had 150 participating in the parade and thousands of spectators):

Amsterdam Photo Diary (Plus How To Layer For Cool Summer Travel)

Earlier this summer I got to venture back to Amsterdam, and it was like a whole different place compared to my cold, rainy first time in the fall.

Check out the adventure below, plus see how you can layer for crisp summer mornings or destinations such as Amsterdam that can have cool air in the summer:

The Relaxed City Commuter Look (and the Performance Dress Pants)

relaxed-city-commuter-look-1

Can’t believe it’s already been a week since New York Fashion Week: Men’s wrapped up! Selecting looks for my days of actively moving around taking photos of the various presentations and models backstage is never something I can’t just do quickly. I need to think about how much moving around I’m going to do, how flexible the clothes are and, naturally, how well the overall look was for me.
