21 Days In Miami

@christianconfidential

Can you believe that it’s the new year already? Like it’s nut! I feel like 2017 came and went by so quickly if it wasn’t for me capturing moments for my blog I don’t think I would’ve been able to remember everything that went down.

That being said, at the end of November my cousin shared a quote that stuck in my head for the rest of the year. “May this last month of 2017 be the plot twist you’ve been waiting for.” and let me tell you that it was!

At the beginning of December my friends and I decided to do a last minute jaunt to Miami for Art Basel. When I say last minute, I mean, L-A-S-T  M-I-N-U-T-E! We literally booked our flights and accommodations the night before, it was so crazy. If you know me, then you know I’m much more of a planner, so this trip was already starting out a lot different.

The plan was to arrive on thursday and leave on sunday. We were all having so much fun, checking out the art installations, having lunches at Soho Beach House, dinners at Komodo and Nusr-Et and partaking in the Miami nightlife (we left E11even on the friday night at 8:30 am to give you guys an idea of how fun it was haha).

When the sunday came around, I was nowhere close to being ready to go back home. Toronto just got their first snow fall and the temperature was plummeting well below zero. My friend Jay and I decided to stay for a few weeks longer and complete the rest of our work for the year in Miami. Honestly, it was the best decision I’ve made in a long time! Everyday I woke up early, got a workout in (Equinox South Beach) then grabbed my laptop and got to work while laying out on the beach in 26+ degree weather!

This was the first time that I wasn’t surrounded by snow for Christmas and to be honest, I wasn’t mad about it! In Miami, they’re very festive with their decorations and you’re still able to feel the Christmas vibe.

I also took this time to really reflect on the direction that my life is going in and what I need to do in the New Year to reach higher heights.

All in all, this was a great experience that I’m really glad that I got the chance to experience and as usual I took a couple pics (maybe more than usual) for you guys to check out!

Believe it or not but I actually shot all of my content with my iPhone 7! I’ve had this phone for about a year now and I’m still blown away by the great quality that it captures. It gets me amped to test out the new iPhone 8plus and the X!  #ShotOnIphone

I hope that 2018 is off to a great start for all of you and that you push through with your resolutions as hard as some of them may be! Remember, you’ve only got one life to life, so whatever it is that you want out of it, go for it and never settle!

Holiday Dress Up + Contest With Forever 21


Holiday Dress Up | Style PostHoliday Dress Up | Style PostThe holiday season is well underway and if you’re anything like me you’re probably rummaging through your closet trying to find things to wear for all of those holiday parties. My friends at Forever 21 asked me to put together what I would consider the perfect “holiday party” outfit, and this is what I came up with. Black denim, an oxford shirt, tie, a velveteen blazer & light brown accessories. Feeling comfortable and on trend are two important factors when I consider what to wear and this look checks off both of those boxes. Opting for black denim instead of dress pants keeps me in my comfort zone and deciding to make the highlight of my outfit the velveteen blazer keeps me on trend with almost every holiday collection out there.

Christian Confidential's Gift Guide For Men | Holiday Shopping Made Easy

For many of us, the holiday season can be one of the most hectic times of the year. With all of the decorating, holiday parties, birthdays and work deadlines, you really don’t have that much time left to do all of your holiday shopping. I’ve decided to try and make your shopping task a little easier (at least when it comes to the special men in your life) by putting together what I consider a pretty dope gift guide!Christian Confidential's Gift Guide For Men | Holiday Shopping Made Easy

1. Nike Air Max 90 Ice – Sneaker Boot $160.00

A great alternative to the standard winter boot that some guys unfortunately still wear. The Air Max 90 sneaker boot is perfect for the young guy living downtown that still wants the style and comfort of his favourite sneaker while being able to stay warm and dry at the same time. They also have great traction and come in four different colorways for you to choose from.

2. Tiffany Somerset Ring $345.00

If he’s a guy that’s into jewellery, you can’t go wrong with this sterling silver ring from Tiffany’s Somerset collection. A great alternative to the classic mens ring that will instantly grab the attention of others making it a conversation piece.Christian Confidential's Gift Guide For Men | Holiday Shopping Made Easy

3. Givenchy Rottweiler Iphone 5(s) Hardcover Case $102.00

If he’s into making a statement with his iphone accessories, he will love the Rottweiler print case from Givenchy. This is a great accessory for the fashion forward guy that likes to keep it simple but stand out at the same time.

4. Rimowa Classic Flight Cabin Trolley IATA $769.00

This item on the gift guide is for the man in your life that’s always on the go. Whether it be for business or pleasure the Classic Flight Cabin Trolley from Rimowa is the perfect piece of luggage for short trips. Beautiful, reputable and built to last – this is a great start to traveling in style.Christian Confidential's Gift Guide For Men | Holiday Shopping Made Easy

5. Noble Leather – Yves Saint Laurent $230.00

Another one of my favourite scents from Yves Saint Laurent is, Noble Leather. Sometimes difficult to find and at a slightly higher price point than your standard cologne. If you’re looking for a scent that’s masculine but not overbearing and will set you apart from the crowd this is a pretty safe bet.

6. Talbot Shearling Leather Coat – All Saints $1448.00

It wouldn’t feel right completing a gift guide without including a leather jacket. This Shearling black leather jacket from All Saints is something worth drooling over. It’s edgy, it will keep you warm and priced pretty reasonably for the quality and material. It’s definitely an item worth looking at for the fashion risk taker on your shopping list.

7. Veuve Clicquot – Champagne $68.00

I see suggestion number 7 as the ‘safe’ yet ‘special’ gift to give not only over the holidays, but anytime of the year. Even if he’s not the biggest champagne enthusiast there will always be an occasion worth celebrating that will only seem complete with a bottle of Veuve.

8. Raf Simons High Top Sneakers $659.00

If he’s a sneakerhead he would love to find these bad boys underneath the tree. Black high top leather sneakers with velcro straps give these kicks a little edge over the competition. Rock these with a pair of joggers and an oversized sweatshirt and you’ve got yourself a dope look.

I hope that this list  provided you with a few cool gift ideas to help check off some of the important men in your life!
