You may have picked up book after book after book, immersed yourself in fantastical worlds, swooned over poetic language and fell head over heels for the courageous protagonists. Perhaps you felt a kindred spirit with your favorite heroine and thought to yourself, “How can I channel this character?” It’s okay, I’ve done it too. The idea of bringing our favorite fictional characters to life is what makes reading so fun. Of course, what better…

watch-collection-essentials

Ceramic watches have been a fashion mainstay since Chanel introduced the J12 Ceramic Watch Collection for women and men in 2000. Popular for their lustrous, high-gloss appeal as well as hypoallergenic characteristics and virtually scratch-resistant quality, ceramic watches are absolute essentials to consider for your watch collection. Although Chanel started the Ceramic watch fashion trend, the brand is not the first watchmaker to feature high-tech ceramic in its watch cases and bracelets. Rado watches in fact have been featuring high-tech ceramic in their Swiss-made timepieces since 1986 with the introduction of its Integral Watch Series. Founded in 1917 in Lengnau,…

Florence and the Time Machine

Florence-and-the-Machine

I am super excited for the forthcoming weekend of May 14!  Why? I’m going to Orlando, FL to finally see Florence & the Machine in concert for the first time ever.  Before I continue this post, if you haven’t listened to this band before, I highly recommend you go do so right now.  Florence Welch is a vocal goddess and you need to take the time to appreciate that. Back?  OK, good.  So, my friends and I bought tickets for this show a couple of months back and the time is drawing near, which means I need to go shopping for my…

Cuff Love…

Watches Fit For Cuffs

Wearing one of today’s uber-thick wristwatches may pose a problem if you’re like most guys who wear long sleeve shirts with cuffs that button at the wrist. The average width of the cuff of a non-bespoke shirt is anywhere from 8 to 11 inches, even if you use the first button on the sleeve cuff, which will allow you a drop more room. You could opt to wear a dress shirt with French cuffs that do require cuff links to close the sleeves and may offer a bit more room on your wrist. However, French cuff shirts with cuff links have…
