I Don't Pop Molly I Rock Tom Ford - Igor Stepanov by Hyuna Shin

The funny thing about the whole three hour difference from New York to here in San Francisco, I don't get to sleep in on weekends. I wake up bright and early for my Saturday Skype session with the Bubs. No matter how late early I get in when I go out with my people the night before. But one thing I can never get over is seeing my poor shoes the next day. I guess that's one sign that it's a fun night . . . or I just got trampled by a human stampede on the dance floor. The life of the young and care free. We only live once.

BTWs I'm totally obsessing with Jay Z's new album, Magna Carta . . .  Holy Grail. Oh yeah he was in town with Justin Timberlake last night.

Have a great weekend my fashionistos and fashionistas!

We close the week with an editorial that appears on the latest issue of Arena Homme Korea. Hyuna Shin photographs Re:Quest model Igor Stepanov with this Punk inspired shoot styled by Fredo Montes. Living for that black and white picture with the leather hat. We need more editorials like this in the US.

Semi Charmed Life - Emilio Flores by Esmeralda Martin

It wont be the first time that someone tells me that I live a semi-charmed kinda life. Sure that can be true, but overall I just lucked out from being born in a great family, really. So far, and I mean today I have all I need or want. Scratch that I want a new pair of Loubis and maybe that new Volvo C30. Just Kidding. I'm not that spoiled, eventhough I just received my first Hermes Birkin as an early Birthday gift from my parents. The bubs' saying that I have everything. "So what do you get someone who has everything?"he asks, Not everything. I responded with grace and such pedigree, "Nothing, babe, I already got you." I swear even the Unicorns puked rainbow.

It's been a weird week for me, coming from a high last week seeing the Bubs even for  just one night, receiving my gift from the parents, to a fun weekend. Only to start of this week finding out another grandparent dies, that leading to a stressful work week. Honestly, I feel like I need another vacation with the Bubs is in order.  

We have an editorial that appears on the pages of Stealer magazine featuring Soul Artist Management talent, Emilio Flores. Esmeralda Martin lenses the project and Jesus Cicero styles Flores in vibrant pieces by Diesel, Burberry Prorsum, Z Zegna, and Salvatore Ferragamo to name a few.

American Gothic - Lukas Katinas, Travis Bland, Lucas Pacheco, Bohdan Stupak & Ludovico Vasquez by Giovanni Squatriti

W.O.W. This is probably the longest that I have not posted anything on here. I apologize for that. Between everything that's going on with married ack! life, social life, work and wrapped with being sick. I barely have time to sit down. Not that I'm actually complaining because last week went by because I'm having fun. It's always good to be busy.

I'm sleep deprived, exhausted, a little bit dehydrated and wired with coffee and sugar-free low calorie energy drinks. I would say a typical young, active professional's life living his casual city life. It's alright, really. We only live once.

Happy Hump Day my fashionistos and fashionistas!

Today's editorial piece appears on Essential Homme's newest issue featuring the work of another favorite photographer, Giovanni Squatriti. Giuseppe Ceccarelli styles the boys with pieces by Dsquared2, Maison Martin Margiela, Prada, and Salvatore Ferragamo to name a few. Lukas Katinas, Travis Bland, Lucas Pacheco, Bohdan Stupak and Ludovico Vasquez rounds up the cast for the fashion story, American Gothic.

Never Enough - Evandro Soldati by Giampaolo Sgura

You know that feeling when you wanted something so bad that once you got it, you don't know what to do next. I think it's just human nature for not being content. That, or just my type A personality. Is it really wrong to have cake and eat it too? I don't think so. Why can't you have both.

Hopefully all my American fashionistos and fashionistas had a fun and safe fourth of July. I know I did.  Now if people would stop lighting up fireworks so I could not suddenly wake up at the middle of the night thinking that the Zombie apocalypse had started. 

Another fun weekend awaits. I could really get used to this short work weeks. Have a great weekend everyone.

We close of the week with an editorial that appeared on the pages of GQ Spain's latest issue. It featured Brazilian male top model Evandro Soldati as photographed by one of my favorite photographers of all time, Giampaolo Sgura. The vibrant swim fashion story was styled by Miguel Arnau.

I Look To You - Ricardo Figueiredo by Daniel Rodrigues

I think a part of being independent was that I tend to do everything by myself. Emotionally guarded as they say. I mean I could ask my friends or the Bubs to listen to everything that bothers me but I think in the end I, alone, had to process those emotions. I think, to my sincerest opinion would be one of my biggest strengths and yet my biggest flaw. 

The last couple of weeks had been an emotional roller coaster for me and I had been so busy with everything that I don't think I had actually stopped and process it all out. I supposed that I couldn't quite box it out forever. I don't remember what the Bubs and I were talking over the phone last night that I just felt really sad. It was a weird emotion, almost foreign. Especially coming from a high ecstatic weekend that was the Pride festivities on top of the legalization of a certain marriage. 

At the end of the night, I consider myself lucky for having a person such as the Bubs in my life. I can't wait to start my whole life with you. If I could also add, It's July. W.O.W.

We open the week with an editorial that appeared on the pages of Fashionisto Magazine. It featured Idependent Men model, Ricardo Figueiredo as photographed by Daniel Rodrigues. Stefano Roncato styled Ricardo with fall/winter offerings by Riccardo Tisci for Givenchy. Love.
