The colorful walls and detailing of Buenos Aires provided the perfect backdrop for the technicolor dream world I was living in.  The buildings told stories of personalities instead of era with pinks walls, purple railings and turquoise shutters. The skies were the limit especially in my favorite neighborhood, El Caminito, which was like a Solange video IRL.

I've said it once, I'll say it again. My trip to South America was a themed one, one large editorial if you will. The inspiration? Days of travel past to the newly re-opened, to Americans, Cuba with a side of 70s porno to boot. 

Mesh tanks, little polos and even smaller shorts paired with a mustache, aviators and a bit of print- can't get much better.

Winter's can be tough, especially on your skin.  Check out some of my favorites for fighting the Arctic chill and keeping your face and hair in check.

For the mustache I'm currently sporting, The Art of Shaving's Movember mustache kit is essential to my routine as of late. For moisture, Lab Series makes a 'water-charged' cream that is instantly hydrating and Mt. Sapola's lemongrass body lotion is a heaven-sent. And my go-to grooming guys, Baxter of California make the best deodorant that keeps you fresh, even with all these layers.

These past few weeks getting ready for Christmas and New Years and my travels to South America have been a dazed. Next stop- RIO! Bye topcoats and layers, hello mesh and the shortest shorts imaginable. See you on the other side!
