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!

Travel, West Palm Beach

West Palm Beach

christian thompson | christian confidentialchristian thompson | christian confidentialWest Palm Beach, where do I begin? Let’s just say that it’s getting super cold in Toronto and if anyone even mentions to me that we should “go on a trip” to somewhere warm, I’m pretty much in! My best friend had a few days off of work and I happened to be free so we booked an impromptu trip to West Palm Beach. We had no idea what to expect, other than warm weather + a beach and to be honest that was good enough for me. West Palm is located in Florida and happens to be one of the healthiest places within the United States – crazy right?! We stayed at The Kimpton Tideline Ocean Resort which is located right off the beach and neighbours to the Four Seasons.

 If you’re looking for a place to go and really have some quality time to yourself or with a special someone, West Palm Beach is a great option. Our day schedule consisted of working out, lounging by the beach and sipping on prosecco. At night we ventured out and socialized with the locals. One of the restaurants I fell in love with was Bucaan - their Sweet Corn Agnolotti pasta is a must try, so good! If you’re looking for nightlife action, everyone pretty much hangs out downtown in Delray Beach. This area is filled with restaurants and bars, one that I really liked was El Camino.

As always, I took a few pictures during my stay for you guys to check out – I hope you guys like them!

Vintage Feels In Vegas

christian confidential | christian thompson

If you’re following me on social media, you know that I’m currently in Las Vegas having the craziest time with Expedia.CA! I honestly can’t stress to you guys how important it is to travel and see as many places as you can! Vegas was never a high priority for me to visit but after playing around with the new Vegas You landing page and being here for the last three days, I’m really happy that the universe brought me here. Now back to this style post, this look came together as a complete accident but I’m totally feeling it! The whole look is vintage (minus the sneakers)  and giving off a complete west coast vibe – which is so appropriate! As much as I love my casual look, can we take a moment to discuss the background… so clutch!  I hope you guys are well and I’ll be back to share more of my discoveries later!

Band Tees in Paris

christian confidential So… I’m back from Paris with a bunch of style content that I’m excited to share with you guys! I shot this super casual yet LA inspired outfit – one afternoon while exploring the 5th arrondissement. I love this look as it’s literally what you would find me wearing on a hot day in Toronto. It’s casual, it’s light and gives off an effortless vibe all in one! I’ve always really liked graphic/band tees but this year more than ever they’ve become a staple in my wardrobe. I threw on my favourite ripped denim shorts, a pair of Huaraches and a new flannel I scored on sale at Urban Outfitters!

“The only rule is don’t be boring and dress cute wherever you go. Life is too short to blend in” – Paris Hilton

Usually I don’t find myself agreeing with Paris on anything to be honest but in this case she just may be right. Fashion is an amazing outlet to really share with the world how you’re feeling and in this style post I feel like I can take on anything. I’m not sure if its the shoes.. actually it’s definitely the shoes that have given me that extra confidence boost to pull off this look. There’s just something about a vibrant red that just instantly takes your look to another level. – and in return making it the focal point of your outfit.Throwing in an eye catching colour like red into your outfit can make the world of a difference, for women it can be as easy as applying some red lipstick or rocking a pair of Louboutin’s. – for men a red fitted cap or a pair of sneakers like the Yeezy’s or these new bad boys called ‘The Broadwick’ from Lacoste’s upcoming SS 15 line. I can’t wait to share more with you guys what the brand has in store for next season!The Transition | Christian Confidential The Transition | Christian Confidential The Transition | Christian Confidential The Transition | Christian Confidential

Summer Street Edge | Live In Levi’s

Summer Nights | Christian Confidential

When it comes to fashion there’s two things that I can never get enough of: 1. ripped denim & 2. a good leather jacket. I’ve featured my leather jacket from Diesel a few times before on the blog so you already know how much I love it. – I paired it with these ripped denim shorts from Levi’s that I got at a dope vintage shop & a mesh tank Zara. Those three items along with my leather snapback have been serious staples for my summer wardrobe. I hope I did them justice in this style post that I like to call Summer Street Edge.

Some highlights of my trip included the Picasso Museum & the Museum of Modern Art both located in the Gothic Quarter. The W Hotel provided amazing customer service, the beach was also steps away from the hotel which was a great add on & the famous La Sagrada Familia lived up to  all of it’s hype and more.
