During my vacation to Puerto Vallarta, Mexico I was on the hunt for some new swimwear to feature. I came across Bather, a Men's Surf & Swimwear company which fit naturally with my personal style. 

While learning Bather is manufactured and designed in Toronto, Canada, I liked the idea of supporting local and economic talent. Styled perfectly for the chillin' at the beach as well as wandering the sunny soaked streets, my Bather shorts quickly became my favourite thing to wear on my vacation. 

My favourite challenge about vacation fashion is finding a way to style swimwear with an everyday outfit when exploring the city.

If you want to shop these looks I'm wearing the multi coral swim trunk, and solid back swim trunk.

Check out @bathertrucks on instagram for more awesome beach lifestyle inspiration.

When it comes to shoes I can be quite particular while trying to find the perfect pair, but after discovering SKYE Footwear they became my favourite kicks for many reasons. 

It's the balance between style and comfort which makes their design exceptionally sleek and practical. The style that I am wearing in these photos is The Powll EL modern desert boot. Olive Khaki pairs well with my wardrobe palette as well as my everyday lifestyle. 

The material is coated with a winterized glazing that helps protect against all wet environments. They are also made to stretch for a perfect fit using the enhanced 4 way stretch material. Since these shoes are so comfy and versatile, I am also able to wear them to the gym

Another practical aspect of these shoes is that you can easily slip them on with the Loop-Lok feature. If you are someone that is always on their feet and traveling these are the perfect brand of shoes for you. 

For more information on how these shoes are perfectly engineered, check out the SKYE Footwear website. Thanks for stopping by and have an adventurous weekend!

I've been on the hunt for the perfect pair jeans while being unique, affordable and made with quality construction. What I found impressed me the most about Stitch's Jeans was the details on the moto taper jeans. Made in a printed camo twill darkened to the perfect degree for a very settle effect that can be paired with many different outfits. Check out Stitch's Jeans for more rustic styled jeans stitched to perfection.

 As Christmas is around the corner I've been looking for the perfect gift that can me shared with all of my friends and family during this holiday break. Last weekend Grey Goose had taken over the LCBO Pop-Up on 600 King street for some exclusive holiday gifts, tasting experiences and complimentary drinks. As my friend Kat had just gotten back from a trip I wanted to surprise her with a luxurious Grey Goose holiday tube as we will be spending the festivities together. I've been getting some drink inspiration from the Grey Goose cocktail recipe library so I'll be ready for the upcoming holiday parties. Grey Goose is made with the finest French ingredients and created extraordinary cocktails for the ultimate holiday soiree. From classic to contemporary which one is your favourite Grey Goose cocktail?

I don't normally make a Christmas list but I thought why not do a few cliché things this year considering most else is muted and untraditional.

Let's get real- I simply wanted to share some of the things that have been in my radar in a non-sponsored post.  because if you like my taste then maybe you can get some of these for yourself or for some other handsome fella in your life. 

Even though I've been a really good boy this year, I most likely won't be getting any of these for Christmas because I've got some bills to pay which unfortunately should come first. So on that very positive note let's get started!!! 

Numero Uno:

Every time I go into the Bay or Nordstrom I desperately spay myself with Tom Ford's Tobacco Vanille because it's the most attractive scent imaginable. Even though that bottle would look really sophisticated on my dresser, let's face it! A sample is all I'm taking home with me.


If you know me well then you know I'm NOT a shoe person, but I can't help but go weak in the knees for these. JF London creates some of the most unique and daring shoes but I especially enjoy the Ross 99 and 44. These shoes scream "I like balls and I want the world to know."



I've been longing for the perfect adventurous looking duffle to brave the dreaded walk to the gym.
I also could see myself wearing this bag for a weekend getaway or if I ever go back to the Sahara Desert. Made with high quality full grain cow leather these bags are way cheaper than high street prices. What makes this a great Christmas gift is that you can add personalized embroidery to make it a special one of a kind bag. -and for every bag sold this company also donates $1.50 to the Frank Water Charity.

HP just created this sprocket that could easily fit in your pocket. Wouldn't it be nice to print off some of those cheeky snapchat screenshots? We often capture the most candid and memorable times on our phones, and having a portable printer at your fingertips is a brilliant idea to keep them vivid for our friends and family to see.

Why is it that I live in Canada and I've never prioritized myself to buy an actual winter jacket? oh that's right because I went to fashion school where rolling into class with sweatpants was a crime.
I have a jacket that looks warm  but it's a lie and I'm miserably cold. Wouldn't it be nice to finally be warm while waiting in the biting harsh snowstorms. A Canada Goose Jacket is built for extreme weather conditions -well, what we call normal weather conditions here.


The game of path
A board game that I don't actually suck at! Northings worse than going to a house party and forcefully having to play cards against humanity (the most basic of all games) with a bunch of strangers to find out that you're really not that funny! You can play Tsuro brainlessly or strategically and it becomes appropriate when some people are more socially distracted like at parties. What I find fascinating about this game is that all the pieces somehow always connect. How beautiful is that?
I wanted to put something realistic on my Christmas list that I actually might end up buying myself.
I can be quite particular with what shampoo that works with my thick hair. I find this one strips all gunky hair product and leaves a very fresh scent. Even though this is a men's shampoo, my sister mentioned how much she loves the smell of it and couldn't resit to help use it all up. I'll probably end up buying one for her as a gift so she doesn't steal mine again. Good thing she doesn't read my blog.

Wouldn't it be nice to see this year? I think giving vision is always the most concerning and loving gift you could give. Getting a trendy pair from Warby Parker would be pretty cool. They've got some new colours and semi-rimless frames which would look pretty damn sophisticated rolling into the Near Year. 

9. A Drone
If you haven't caught on... "It's the year of the done!!" and the saddest part is even children and dogs might own one before I do. Aerial photography is making it's way into the market and wouldn't it also be nice to find a new way to spy on your neighbours?

Who else thinks the ultimate Christmas gift to wrap a box to find out you're going on a flight to ______(fill in the blank)!! I really do think it would be the best Christmas surprise and also sorta romantic. Now you know all the top 10 ways to win me over this Christmas. Something out there that you really like and want to share? Drop it in the comments below and I'll be sure to check it out! Happy Holidays everyone and stay warm!! -Bobby

If you're looking for the perfect holiday getaway the Four Seasons hotel in Toronto is the perfect relaxing retreat. 

When I first walked into the premiere room I was instantly impressed by the spacious and relaxing design. The settle decor and matching artwork creates a soft dreamy feel to the room. As someone who I really admires interior design, I found myself fascinated by the selected artwork and wall accents. One of my favourite features of the room would have to be the crescent-shaped sofa that's ideally designed for intimate conversation. 

When it comes to hotels, having a nice bathroom with the perfect lighting is something I find at the top of my priority list.  -and what more could you ask for than having a TV hidden in the mirror?
The Dream bathroom with spacious counters and granite interior is really luxury at it's finest.

The floor-to-ceiling windows showing the view of downtown Toronto really makes a site to see especially during the night. Since these rooms are located high up on the 10th to 21st floors the downtown noise wasn't a disturbance in the slightest -even on a Friday night when the city becomes more lively. 

A night wouldn't be more complete without a quick visit to the spa where a sunlit indoor relaxation pool and hot tub adjoins to an outdoor terrance overlooking the city of Toronto.

Lastly, I must mention that the concierge team was very professional and welcoming upon our arrival and offered to help us with transportation later in the night. Below are more photos from my relaxing getaway and breakfast at Café Bouloud. Thanks for stopping by and hope everyone is having a lovely weekend!~

It's been a while since I've made a blog post but I wanted to share my experience from one the events that I recently attended on October 21st. The Grand Opening event for LOT42 Global Flex Campus was a night full of great live performances and really cool art displays. "A space for creators, developers, changers and movers to come alive."  The warehouse was transformed into a exhibit of eye catching art by muralists Bruno Smoky and Jerry Rugg. Headlining at this event was Tyler Shaw, Skratch Bastid along with some other amazing performers and it was so wonderful to see them all live. I look forward to more awesome events held at this revolutionary event space in the future. Photo credit: Nick Lee, Best of Toronto for capturing some of these amazing photos included in this blog post.

Today I'm sharing my newest pair of trainers that I got from JD Sports. These Nike Air Force 1 in triple white are light and extremely comfortable and I'm really pleased with the feel of them. They also arrived really fast in the mail and I was quick to break them in. It also makes it really easy to style as most of my active clothing is also black and white. Check out the JD Sports website for more Nike Air Force 1 shoes. Thanks for stopping by! Have a great weekend!
