10 travel tips.

1. Hang your jacket when seated -- If driving, you should take a couple hangers with you and utilize the hooks in the back so your jacket(s) won’t be pressed and wrinkled when seated.  On a plane – I usually wear my jacket to my seat and then take it off and fold it / store it right before sitting.

2. fold, then roll -- folding your clothing means you're probably going to end up with wrinkles and creases. Wrinkles and creases mean you're either going to havr to iron your shuff, or look like a giant fool. bundle 2-3 items of clothing together, fold them into a rectangle and roll them up. This will cut down on wrinkling and creasing, and actually save space in your luggage. 

3. Shoe Storage -- Underwear, socks, and belts can be rolled up and placed inside your shoes to save space and prevent the tops of your shoes from caving in and losing their shape. I also recommend putting your shoes into bags within your bag, to prevent the soles from dirtying your clothing -- shower caps work perfectly for this purpose.


4. Pack light -- If you're telling yourself, “I want to make sure I have some options,” you’re really just being indecisive and convincing yourself it's okay to bring 3 extra shirts, 4 pairs of jeans, and both of your "good" running shoes which means you should probably just bring another bag. Translation: you're being ridiculous. Traveling in style means being able to move around unencumbered just as much as it means looking good while you do it. At most, you should be bringing a duffel and a backpack.


5. stay healthy -- as a traveler, your propensity to get sick isn’t just linked to hygiene; you’re also changing your diet, breathing in new air, and, most likely, ditching your exercise routine. Pack vitamins to keep your immune system on track, and running shoes so you can still go for that morning jog. Ask the flight attendant for a full bottle of water, rather than having to beg for refills in that tiny plastic cup. 

6. playlists -- make sure you've got some killer jams to pass the time while you fly or drive. If you're going to be driving through nature, make that playlist cater to the scenery like a soundtrack. Not only will you enjoy the music, but the music will make you enjoy the scenery and experience even more. If you need help with this, ask us and we'll make sure you're covered. 

7. Be Flexible -- give yourself some cushion between planned activities instead of trying to cram a millon things into one day. Don't underestimate how tired you may be, and don't force it. This is a vacation, so give yourself some time to take it all in, relax, and enjoy it. If you see something incredible that you just can't pass up, allow yourself the flexibility to move things around and explore. This will cut down on stress, and allow you to really enjoy your trip(s). 

8. Sunglasses, breathmints, and wet wipes -- just trust me on this one.

9. Dress well -- "Opportunity awaits the traveling man who dresses in style." Seriously, they don’t offer that unexpected opening in first class to a man who looks like a bum. Unless you're traveling to Sportstown, USA, where they wear running shoes and mesh shorts all day everyday, you should look good, and dress appropriately to your surroundings. 

 10. Travel Often. Travel with the right people. Have fun. Make it memorable.

dripcult x hillandsyd

the extremely talented and fashionable babes from came to visit me in San Francisco. Naturally, I had to show them san francisco from a new perspective. Did we eat delicious foods? of course we did. did we see some touristy stuff? of course we did. did i have to say "I wouldn't touch that if i were you" frequently? of course i did. but did we go on adventures to find hidden gems? you better believe it.

the north face - fuseform.

the north face began selling specialized gear to backpackers and climbers in 1968. They've come a long long way and have branched out from making backpacks (where their reputation began) to manufacturing all kinds of gear for the outdoors. 

Their latest release, and what is probably the most unique design in years, is the fuseform rainjacket.

This thing is no joke. It's crazy light--weighing only 11.46 ounces--and still holds up to tough conditions. the name FuseForm comes from the the process innovated by the north face of fusing strong nylon yarns at the shoulders and breathable polyester yarns through the torso for targeted abrasion resistance.

Rain is no longer an excuse to stay indoors. Stop by the north face's website to learn more about the shells and scoop one up. treat yo' self

The Orange Balloon.



I cannot tell you how many times I have tried to go on this. It has been failed attempt after failed attempt. All I wanted to do was take my girlfriend on a cute date, but it never seemed to work out. Let me first tell you what this is. Besides the obvious of it being a big orange balloon, this is a ride at the Great Park in Irvine. If you've driven down the 5 freeway in southern California, you've probably seen this thing in the air or on the ground. It's a pretty simple ride. It goes up, you gawk in the amazement of what Orange County looks like at night and then you come back down. Don't let that description fool you. It's actually a really fun, calming experience. If you're afraid of heights you have no business going on this. Going at night is really nice, but I can imagine going during the day would be good as well. If you've ever been on supreme scream at Knott's, the view is kinda like that. You don't get to free fall though, sorry. That would be fun though. So if you're ever in the Irvine area I highly suggest this. Make sure to get there early. Registration for the ride fills up fast.

Kinfolk Magazine. 

Guess what arrived yesterday? If you guessed volume two of Kinfolk you are right. What's Kinfolk you ask? Well I'm glad you asked because I'm about to tell you. Kinfolk is a guide to small gatherings. There are multiple unique contributors that offer everything from writing, photography, culinary skills, adventure and friends getting together; you can find just about anything to peak your interests in this magazine. From the moment you pick it up the magazine demands respect. By the look and feel of Kinfolk you can tell that a lot of time, effort and love went into making this. Upon opening the magazine you find yourself lost within its beautiful pictures. It takes a few flip-throughs to realize you haven't actually read a word, you're just looking at the pictures. When you finally step out of the photography trance that the visuals have created, you finally start reading the words and begin to the rabbit hole that is Kinfolk. They have done an amazing job of both capturing and keeping your attention. At last, you have read every word and scanned every photo multiple times. Now what? You do it all over again because you're left wanting more. If you do want more, go to Kinfolk's website.
