If you're following along on Instagram [@trendstyled] then you've seen it's been a whirlwind of a month traveling featuring some amazing destinations, properties, and hospitality groups. Now that I've had a second to reflect on my travels, I'm finally getting to share with you some of my favorite moments from my experience with Celebrity Cruises aboard the beautiful Equinox!

I've been on a cruise before years ago but have never experienced a boat quite like the Equinox! With just about fourteen restaurants and lounges to dine in, fourteen bars, lounges, and clubs, and an endless amount of activities aboard the Celebrity Equinox, trust me when I say... you will not be left with an empty schedule! Below are just a few of my favorite spots that I loved and hope you will too if you decide to experience a Celebrity Cruise for yourself!

TO SLEEP
I had the pleasure of getting a Veranda Stateroom which includes a large bed, a sitting area with a couch and desk, as well as a beautiful balcony to experience the world going by each day. This easily accommodates a couple with plenty of room. Truth be told though, you won't be spending much time in your room so if you are more budget conscious, I suggest going for an Inside Stateroom and enjoy the rest of the boat!

TO EAT
LuminaeWith a wide ranges of dishes like steak, fresh fish specials, and pastas, this has something for just about everyone. Make sure you ask about their extensive wine list! This restaurant exclusive to suite guests only.

Tuscan Grille • Celebrity's Italian-inspired restaurant which offers dry aged beef, some delicious pastas, and some unique Italian inspired cocktails. You won't leave hungry after a dinner here. Make sure you order a range of appetizers to share for the table!

Murano • World class cuisine in a very intimate setting. This was by far my favorite restaurant on the ship and managed to try just about everything on the menu. For larger groups, request the wine cellar for a super unique experience. The service at this restaurant was by far the most attention to details I've ever seen a restaurant execute. Sip champagne, eat well, and leave happy!

TO DRINK
Martini Bar and Crush • I mean, who doesn't like a good martini?! This ice-topped bar is the center of the ships entertainment scene. It's the perfect beginning and end to each night with some hand crafted martinis, up-tempo tunes, and some very attractive bartenders! 

Quasar • The ships largest club with nightly DJs, you'll spend plenty of time dancing the night away and completely forget you're on a boat!

Pool Bar • This is where you'll spend your day sipping cocktails poolside. I suggest getting to the pool early to grab a good sun drenched spot and just enjoy the sea breeze!

These are just a few of my favorites but the entire list of bars can be found HERE!

TO DO ABOARD
The Theater • With a wide range of shows including dancing, singing, magic, and comedy, the main theater is the hub of evening entertainment. Just be sure to check your daily schedule to see who's performing each night and make sure you arrive early to grab a good seat!

The Spa • Either getting a haircut, a facial, or a massage [just to name a few of the many treatments available] this is where relaxation meets ultra-relaxation. Escape to the spa open daily for an amazing experience and recharge for the next day. Spa access is available to enjoy some quiet spaces as well.

The Casino • I may have spent one too many late nights doing some blackjack and slot machines but it was time well spent. Bet big and cash out before you depart the ship! Good luck!

Pool and Jacuzzi Deck • Enjoy a full day of endless un and unblocked views while on the ships pool deck. Order cocktails, lunch, and even join in on the daily activities offered around the pool. 

These are just a few of the endless amounts of activities offered aboard the Celebrity Equinox! You will received a schedule daily in your stateroom so you won't miss any of the action if you decide to stay on the ship for a day at port or at sea!

If you're wanting to really experience something one of a kind then just click through HERE for an exclusive offer just for you guys. Hope to see you guys on a Celebrity Cruise soon!

This season, I've partnered with MR PORTER to bring an exciting one stop shop gift guide for those men in your life. No matter his style, I've got something for just about anyone and it's all brought to you by one of the best resources for upgrading that style just in time for the New Year! This is just the tip of the iceberg when choosing some of my favorite gear from MR PORTER so definitely make sure you get to their site and find those last minute gifts... or that last minute 'treat yo self' shopping! 😉

FOR THE GROOMER

MR PORTER has one of the best grooming kits I've seen this holiday. Made up of some of my favorites in the grooming game like Malin and Goetz, Oribe, Bumble and Bumble, and Lab Series, the MR PORTER Grooming Kit has everything you need to up your guy's grooming routines. It's got him covered for just about any grooming needs - hair, body, moisturizer, repair, and so much more! - and best of all, it's less than $100. Not to mention just about the easiest gift you can give any guy. Just add a ribbon and you're good to gift!

FOR THE ATHLETE

One of my favorite sections of MR PORTER is the 'Sport' section which houses all things for the athlete in your life. From sneakers to gym bags to every accessory you need to be the best athlete you can be, this section has it all! Shown here are some of my favorites that go into my daily workouts, but I've also included everything you need to buy the athlete in your life. No matter the workout of choice, we still gotta look good while we sweat!






FOR THE TRAVELER

Is traveling on your list of New Year's resolutions?!... Then travel in style with some MR PORTER essentials to look the part while traveling to your bucket list destinations. One of my big investments this year was a great piece of hard case luggage from Fabbrica Pelletterie Milano I've learned the hard way that those discount cases just won't do the trick when you're traveling often. Invest in one great piece and use it forever! Just like your luggage, a great pair of headphones is an essential. If you're looking for amazing sound, comfort on your ears, and complete silence of outside noise, then go for some Master and Dynamic Headphones for your wish list this holiday. They are worth every penny! Still need some ideas for your shopping / wish list for your travel like minded? Shop through below.




FOR THE HOMEBODY

Last, but certainly not least, the 'homebody' because there really is no place like home! As much as I love to travel, socialize with friends, and staying active, nothing beats being cozy in your own space or entertaining your friends in your home. For those looking to give the gift of home upgrade or even those shopping for those perfect pieces to showcase while entertaining friends this holiday season, this list of homewares from MR PORTER will not only update your home but also reflect your personal style no matter what it might be! 



I hope some of my gift guide could be some help for you last minute shoppers! No matter wether your shopping for the guy in your life, for your own 'treat yo self' holiday list, or just in need of a major style upgrade any other time of the year, MR PORTER is that one stop shop you'll be addicted to. I use it daily for style inspiration and for those moments in need of some of the newest in menswear, grooming, and accessories. Happy shopping friends!

I’ve always been obsessed with finding new scents to match my mood, the season, or even the time of day. My collection of fragrances has grown to an almost stockpile of bottles that I can’t ever seem to let go of. I tell myself that I’ll re-gift them but when it comes down to it, I always talk myself into keeping each and every bottle. Like your style, your cologne should be an evolving scent matching your state of mind, so I never know when I might need a certain scent.

This holiday season, I’ve partnered with Jimmy Choo Man Intense and honestly could not have come at a better time. Not one to make New Year’s resolutions, I’m an avid believe of upping your style for the New Year and it all begins with a great scent. A slight hint of lavender is balanced with masculine punches of almond, black pepper, and tobacco, which instantly warms you to the core. Your scent should compliment your natural pheromones and Jimmy Choo Man Intense does just that… just try to walk past someone without them noticing you. Start with this scent and the rest of your New Year’s style goals will fall right into place!

One of the most popular questions I get from you guys is, “What is your skincare regimen?!” While I’m always on the go and travel as often as I can, the one thing I never skimp on is my skincare routine. By now, I have a great process that works for my skin the keeps it looking its’ best no matter where my travels might take me. 

One of my best secrets – sheet masks! My skin is super prone to dryness [especially from being on a plane every month] so moisturizing is a must to keep my skin balanced and glowing. While there are so many on the market to choose from, it was hard to find one that fits a man’s face which focuses on our thicker skin. Thankfully, I was recently introduced to Dekke Hud.



If you have fifteen minutes to spare - and really who doesn’t?! – then you definitely have to get into a Dekke Hud mask. I like to do my mask at night, especially the night before boarding any kind of flight. It’s simple and easy. Just peel the mask from the sheet and place on your face making sure to smooth out any bubbles so you skin is fully covered by the moisturizing goodness. Let sit for fifteen minutes, peel off, and you’re done!



The benefits: A sheet mask is a boost in your daily routine. By using regularly, a sheet mask can balance and moisturize your skin with much deeper penetration than your daily topical moisturizer. This means, glowing skin but my favorite – a lot less irritation from stress, workout sweats, and shaving! It’s spa like results without having to drag yourself to a spa or pay out the steep costs. Just try it out for yourself and let me know how it goes! In fact, use code STYLE30 for 30% off your purchase through the end of February! Now there's no excuse! :]

I've been loving the pressure of staying active while living in Los Angeles. With sunshine always in full force, there's really no excuse to have any days or seasons off. No matter if I'm going out for a jog, a hike, or taking a fitness class, I'm always focused on looking the part with some great workout gear. This week, I'm collaboration with JCPenney and sporting some of the latest from their MSX by Michael Strahan collection.

I've been so excited to share this weeks partnership with lululemon! Especially ever since moving to Los Angeles - AKA the land of the healthy and active - I've always loved workin on my fitness so getting into '#TheSweatLife' was a no brainer! With everything you need for a great workout, lululemon has been my go-to when dressing for a sweat session. No matter your workout of choice, this is a one stop shop for all things looking good and feeling better! 

While it may always be sunny in L.A., it went for some lighter gear to get me through my morning run. While lululemon offers different short lengths, I went for these 5" Surge Shorts that are perfect for my high intensity runs. Plus with a small zip pocket on the bum, it makes it easy to carry the necessities like keys and some cash for those very L.A. breakfasts - an açaí bowl! Just shop through some of my favorites below that you'll definitely spot me wearing.

It's that time of year again - ya know, when you tell yourself you're going to start Christmas shopping this week so you aren't scrambling on Christmas Eve to get that last minute shopping done but just know you won't! - which means it's time to start making that list and checking it twice! While my family is pretty small, it can still be hard to find gifts for everyone. If your friends and family are as picky as mine, just shop by my rule... accessories for all!

Luckily, my friends at Triwa just restocked my wristwear just in time for my Christmas list researching. I've been a fan of the brand for years. It's one of those reliable brands you know won't be too flashy but will still have people asking where you got it. I've been obsessed with their new metal bracelets [brass color shown on my wrist] and this Pine Falken watch model has been living on my wrist since I got him a week ago. Made with Swedish leather, champagne gold metal, and a deep green face, it's a classic piece that goes with just about every style. Make sure you hit these guys up this weekend [Nov. 26th - 28th] for their Black Friday / Cyber Monday weekend sale where everything is 25% off... And if you're catching this post after those dates, then use my personal discount code 'trendstyled15' for 15% off! 






It's not that hard to fall in love with Los Angeles with winter weather like this. As much as I do miss NYC at times, being able to wear a tee out in the middle of November is pretty damn amazing. Even my hometown of Dallas, Texas is colder than what SoCal calls 'winter' weather... and I'm not mad about it one bit!

When originally moving here, I thought it would just be for a few months to complete a project I came here for. I was so wrong! Besides the weather being amazing, the laid-back lifestyle is exactly what I needed after a busy six years in New York. Never one to go too dapper, a great pair of pants can definitely kick some style into your daily outfits no matter how laid-back your esthetic is. These from Scotch and Soda are my current fall favorites. With a monochrome check print, they can easily be dressed up or down depending on the occasion. 

Since I'll be running around finishing up those last minute Thanksgiving errands today, I went a bit more casual with a lightweight tee, some suede Soludos espadrilles, and my current go-to watch brand Triwa for the wristwear. Not a bad hump day when you're dressed like this! Scroll and click through my style below to get into some for yourself!
