Another dreary day is on tap for the tristate area! It’s time to spice it up on Tune Tuesday by throwing a little LMFAO in the spotlight. This song will get your day jump started in the right direction, even before the first sip of coffee with it’s explosive amount of energy to have you pushing the pedal to the medal! Just remember to apologize to your neighbors in the cubicles for… Read More


As a bachelor, I don’t spend a lot of time at home. I’m on the go nearly every waking minute. In fact, you can pretty much consider my home nothing more than a mere rest stop, though even that may be giving it too much credit! So, what does a single guy like me do for food exactly? Well, I could tell you honestly it’s not rotting away in the fridge or… Read More

Monday. It’s the most hated day of the week. For many, it’s the return to work or school, or even worse, both! Whatever is so daunting about Monday, there’s a video that has recently gone viral on YouTube of a man who transformed his life and embraced the positives rather than the negatives. It’s a video that’s sure to make your Monday a whole lot brighter! (Sadly, it’s still Monday though.)


Am I too old to have a “Bieber Fever”? Probably, but Justin Bieber has come out with this hot new track that’s totally addictive and gets your heart pumping. It’s one of those songs that you listen to at a club. A whole new kind of Bieber, and with his newly released video, we can now see just how grown up he has become. Take a listen!


As a guy who is always on the go, it’s of vital importance to have everything I need with me at all times. There’s the iPad to blog and catch up on emails and school assignments, then of course is all the accessories that a guy will ever need for any last minute dates like cologne and face products. Of course, those are just a handful of items that I carry around,… Read More

In case you haven’t noticed, or have been living under a rock, it’s been very gloomy here in the northeast this past week. I haven’t found even a hint of sunshine. I’m now beginning to wonder if I should get the supplies ready to build an ark. If this is what Seattle is like, I don’t think I want to go there anytime soon! So, what is one to do with so… Read More

Most guys could go weeks without getting a haircut. In fact, I know plenty who go months before a clipper even comes close to their head. As a self proclaimed metrosexual, I like to keep up on appearances, so every 2 weeks I am faithfully at my favorite salon in the Farmington Valley, Zinc. Zinc offers an incredible atmosphere. It’s sophisticated, yes, but calm and inviting at the same time. It’s one… Read More

Ever hear a good song that just makes you want to get up out of the drivers seat of the car and just start dancing? I know I’m not the only one with such a passion! Today, I heard this song called Cinema on the David Guetta station on my Pandora. I wish I could have put it on repeat for the entire duration I was in the car! I had this… Read More

Every so often, we come across a rewards program that is so innovative and cool that we just have to share it with our friends. One of my favorite stores to shop, Express, has come out with a rewards program that does just that. It’s called Express NEXT. While the NEXT program isn’t new to the company as they have always offered it for their credit card holders, it is new for… Read More


I make a lot of trips down to New York City. Living within a close proximity to it here in Connecticut, we’re often referred to as one big suburb of the Big Apple. All it takes is a look around at how we drive to see just how true that is! When it comes to the road, we’re maniacs, and we get our behavior directly from the city that never sleeps. It’s… Read More
