Let’s Get Technicole

Sponsored by Zappos Well, never thought I would say this. But I’m so glad to see some 30 degree days. It’s been down right frigid and in the single digits around here. Which means the temps this week make it seem warm, as odd as they may seem. Even got the chance to head out for a quick walk with a few friends and their super cute pups, Luna and Ruby. Which was the perfect time to break in my newest Kenneth Cole New York kicks from Zappos. Yeah, yeah, I know, I know, another pair of black and white sneakers. BUT these guys are special. Why? Cause they’re part of Kenneth Cole’s newest line: techni-cole. This means they’re equipped with their 37.5 technology, which essentially is a thermostat for your foot. Meaning that even after walking 3 miles yesterday my feet were as cool (and dry) as they were before I started. Don’t believe me? Then now’s the perfect time to try it them out for yourself. Head to Zappos to start shopping. I’ve keeping an eye on a few other pairs. So don’t be surprised if you see another pair on here before too long. Cause they are that…

Tequila Cold Brew

Well, what a year 2017 turned out to be. Full of a crazy amount of ups and down, and easily one of my busiest years to date. Can’t say that I’m sad to say goodbye to 2017 though. Especially seeing as I’ll be ringing in 2018 with the best friends a guy could ask for. Complete with an all you can eat and drink celebration at one of our favorite spots. Followed by a Silent Disco where we’ll be dancing the night away. If it sounds like a long night that’s because it’s definitely going to be, but hey you’re only young once, right? Luckily my second holiday cocktail with Patrón is going to help us power through the night. More and more local bars have gotten on board with the cold brew cocktail trend, and I’m definitely here for it. So much so that I’m putting a holiday spin on one to serve while my friends and I get ready for the night. Best thing about this cocktail though? It’s easy to whip up a big batch and have it chilling in the fridge for your guests before they even arrive. Meaning that you’ll be able to enjoy time…

Grown Up Chocolate Milk

Y’all! Can’t believe that we’re just a few short days away from Christmas. This year has really flown by. Just like last year and the year before that. Who’s with me? I remember being younger and desperately wishing to be older. If I only I knew that it certainly speeds up and never slows down, maybe I wouldn’t have wished for it so hard. But of course there are perks to being able to sit at the big kid table during the Holidays. Like getting to indulge in a few adult beverages. Right? Over the years I’ve grown to be the cousin that brings cookies and a cocktail or two to our Christmas Eve functions. Which is why I’m excited to have teamed up with Patrón to craft two holiday cocktails. One for Christmas Eve and the other for New Years Eve – so stay tuned for that! Not only is Patrón my hands down favorite tequila to use in cocktails this year’s One Liter Limited Edition bottle is quite the showstopper. And I’m already planning on ways to reuse the bottle around my apartment once it’s empty. Making it not only the perfect addition to your bar at home…

Loaded Tecate

This post has been sponsored by Tecate Light. All thoughts and opinions are my own. Must be 21 or older to consume alcohol. Please drink responsibly. They weren’t lying. Time really does fly as you get older. I can’t believe that I’m sitting here writing this post at the beginning of December when it feels like summer was just a few days ago. This past year has been one of my busiest to date, and this Holiday season is proving to be no different. Pizza parties, gift exchanges, trips to Baltimore and Alexandria, ugly sweater AND wigs for a friend’s birthday. The past few weeks have been crazy busy, but I wouldn’t have it any other way. Whenever my friends and I are together it’s a guaranteed good time. Full of laughs, lots of love, and at least one or two funny memories we’ll group text about for weeks to come. A few weeks back we all got together for a build-your-own pizza party, and I was in charge of the liquid refreshments. Well, also in charge of rolling out roughly 20 personal pan pizzas and acting as Pizza Traffic Control. Type A personality, especially in the kitchen, reporting for duty!…

Last Minute Gift Ideas for Him

In typical fashion here I am a few days before Christmas and JUST now getting around to shopping. Literally swung by a local shop to pick up a gift for a white elephant party on the way TO the party.

The beauty and grooming section at Meijer is full of top-notch brands like Cremo, Bulldog, and old favorites like AXE and Old Spice. Meaning they’ve got a little…
