Road Trip Book with MyPublisher

April 28, 2016

It’s no surprise that my wife and I travel A LOT. And if you follow me on Instagram you’ve probably noticed our travel hashtag #merandtimneverstop. It’s all fine and good to tag all those photos and look at them on a 5 inch screen; but it’s a WHOLE lot better seeing them in beautiful color in a 12×12 album! Thanks to MyPublisher I was able to make a glorious album with some of our favorite travel photos from over the years. Their software was straight forward and easy to work with and my favorite feature of the books is the lay-flat spreads. The seamless panoramas look so great with my epic photos of White Sands, Badlands, and Versailles! And the color rendering of my photos was spot on, which is something that is very important to me. Now we can have something on our coffee table to look at and remind us of great times we’ve had instead of having to look at a 5 inch screen. And it will be so nice to show our son this book when he is older so he can see how cool his parents were are 🙂 Head over to MyPublisher and check out their books.

A Few Days in NYC – Day 3 & 4

April 26, 2016

Day three in NYC I had a shoot all day so I didn’t really wear or do anything of note. Just my chambray shirt from J. Crew Factory, new AE jeans, and Eastland boots. One of my uniforms. And of course I had more pizza and more whiskey. On the fourth day I decided to rent a Breather to shoot these outfit photos since I didn’t want to just do them back in front of the door in San Diego like I always do. Breather is another thing I love about New York. There are awesome spaces all over the city and you can rent them by the hour. You can use them for meetings, sleeping, photo shoots, really anything (legal). We actually did the photo shoot the day before in one and it was such a great deal for a great space. There are also Breathers in Canada, SF, LA, Chicago, Boston and other places, so check it out there too if you are there. After shooting I had some quick Indian food near the hotel I was staying at. Later that night I had another meeting, this one was over a cocktail though, so it was great. It was at the Nomad Bar and I got the Gentlemen’s Exchange and it was so good. Then guess what I did? Yep. I had more pizza. At a place called Marta that I had on my bookmarks. It was quite quite good. Then I tried to go to The 21 Club (where I had the best Manhattan of my life last year) but it was a bust. Then I headed back to Campbell Apartment but decided not to go in. I went to bed early instead.

Blazer: Linen Herringbone – H&M – $69
Shirt: Indigo Japanese Chambray – J. Crew – $88 (factory version)
Pants: Skinny Chinos – H&M – $30
Shoes: Charlie in Glow – J. SHOES
Tie: The 1969 in Forest – Shop Stay Classic – $25
Tie Bar: 1″ Tie Bar – Shop Stay Classic – $10

A Few Days in NYC – Day 2

April 23, 2016

Day two in NYC consisted of lots and lots of walking. Nearly 9 miles, actually. It began with a mini-shoot in Chelsea and then immediately to H&M where, of course, I bought some shit. A suit, pants, and a short sleeve shirt because it was so damn hot. The clothing stores in NYC have a way better selection than anywhere else. And there is no tax on clothing so there’s that too! I hit up the usual places… Uniqlo, Topman, J. Crew, Urban Outfitters, but didn’t get anything (thankfully…. more money for pizza and whiskey). I had a meeting later in the day, but I switched into my new short sleeve shirt and just tucked it in for a cleaner and more streamlined look. It’s crazy how different an outfit can look if you just tuck in your shirt. That day I had vegan pizza, lots of coffee and lots of whiskey. If you live in NYC I highly recommend checking out the app Cups. I used it when I lived there last year and again on this trip. Basically it’s a monthly fee and you get unlimited coffee. So if you drink a lot of coffee it ends up really being worth it, especially if you get some crazy soy mocha latte vanilla brownie weird thing. It’s also available a bit in Philadelphia and San Francisco. And if you use my code you get $10 free. I also checked out my old neighborhood and got all teary eyed. Anyway, heres the outfits. Short sleeve tucked and untucked and a blazer/pant combo I wore to get a cocktail at Raine’s Law Room.
