2016: The Good. The Bad. The Ugly.

2016….. What a year. I don’t know where to begin, but I will say it most definitely was a whirlwind for me.  Just a heads up, this is gonna be  long post where I speak on some of the highs and lows I faced in 2016, as well as some lessons learned. I’ll start by…

Chicken & Waffles from Preux & Proper

A Taste Of New Orleans, In Los Angeles…

On a Friday evening back in January, the homies and I had a great dinner at a New Orleans themed restaurant called Preux & Proper.  **An aside for my New Oleans peeps, after living in your city for a year back in 2012, I know how defensive you get in regards to your culture.  By…

13th, The Must See Documentary.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V66F3WU2CKk Ava Duvernay’s latest project – 13th – is the one that got me off my blogging sabbatical.  I watched it twice last week and when I say must see, I mean MUST see.  It’d be more effective to show this 90 minute film in schools instead of the watered down, inaccurate African-American history that…

Birthday Vibes.

What up guys, I hope all is well in your world!  Everything’s good on my end, on February 15th I celebrated another year of life on Planet Earth.  Not sure if you guys saw the vlog from last year’s Birthday Shenanigans, but with that in mind I decided to keep it simple this time. Before…

Don’t Sleep On Eugene, Oregon.

Many of you know I’m a HUGE football fan so it’s only right that my bucket list includes attending games at some of our Nation’s top venues.  I remember watching Oregon during the Akili Smith days and as of late, their uniforms are out of this world so Autzen Stadium was a must.  I’m a…

My Barber’s Hypebeast Feature.

The good folks over at Hypebeast produced a DOPE feature on my barber JayR.  In the 7 minute clip JayR narrates his come up from cutting friend’s hair out of his parent’s garage to cutting some of today’s greatest NBA stars.  Be sure to check the video below but first let me tell you how I…

Camo Vest.

I’ve been obsessed with camo since I was a kid.  When I’d go to Lufkin to visit my Dad I’d sneak off on my bike to the Army/Navy Surplus and not come back for hours. (If you’re from East Texas you know the one on Timberland, don’t front haha) I stopped by the store on…

Rust Blazer.

I can’t even begin to believe that it’s August already.  I said August guys.  As in June, July, AUGUST!!!  The good thing is that we’re inching closer to Fall which is my preferred season because you have cooler temps which allows layering for us style junkies.  And of equal importance Fall means it’s FOOTBALL SEASON!!!…

Road Trip To The Grand Canyon.

Candice mentioned riding up to the Grand Canyon months ago, but I honestly didn’t think we’d get around to it this Summer. A few weeks ago she brought it up on a Thursday morning so we ended up renting a car and hotel room and headed out Friday morning. It’s only 7 hours from Los…

Chambray And Linen

Weekends Are Made For Chambray and Linen.

  I went to the Grand Canyon(vlog and pics coming soon) over the weekend so I took off Monday to rest up.  I ended up riding to Glendale to do some pick ups and drop offs at my tailor’s shop.  I also did a little shopping and enjoyed a JNJ Burger when I got back…
