When someone usually mentions something to me about solo traveling the first thing i usually think of….. feeling vulnerable and finding myself helpless in places where I don’t speak the language or I simply know nothing about the country or culture within that community. So when the @viennatouristboard & @AustrianAirlines invited to come and support the Life Ball I was honor to take on the challenge of going somewhere completely new to me and get know more about this beautiful country and the beauty behind such an amazing cause where people from all over the world and all ages come together for one night to raise money for those affected by aids.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text] [gallery columns="1" size="full" ids="2217,2222,2213"] [/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]
So here I found myself…. A brand new country and completely solo “Wow” I know right? everything around me involves museums, architecture and beautiful people from around the world getting in town for the same event.
That very first day in Vienna not sure why but for some odd reason I felt so inspired and decided to tell the board of tourist of Vienna I was going to stay an extra 20 days and explore everything I could around Austria… now you might ask yourself why am I????? calling my journey “The Golden Trip” well funny enough my ultimate favorite brand who I been working side by side creating beautiful memories throughout the year... They were kind enough to provide me with a beautiful pair of Gold Heelys to wear for the Life Ball Gala and let me tell you I was not surprised to see how many people smile and came up to me to take pictures with me because the Heelys brought them memories of their childhood and nothing but happy flashbacks of their lives.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text] [gallery columns="1" size="full" ids="2212,2216,2215,2219,2220,2209,2208,2205"] [/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]
Because of that exact reason I decided to take the Heelys with me everywhere throughout europe and can’t wait to share with you guys the rest of my journey… Life is beautiful no matter what corner of it you find yourself in. And it’s a short journey. You can’t hold it forever. Just appreciate the moment you find yourself existing.
In the words of Heelys why walk? Life is not made up of just what you know. There is an infinite amount of life available. You’ll never experience it all, but the more open you are to it the more you will experience.

Lately some of you have asked me which city in the United States I most recommend to visit during the summer? I always say: MIAMI
One of the many reasons why Miami it’s the perfect hot spot to be at during the summer it’s “The Beach”….. Miami is geographically right by the Bahamas, Cuba, Cancun, the Dominican Republic, and most everywhere in the Caribbean that you associate with gorgeous beaches, palm trees, and clear, azure blue water that’s bathtub warm. What this means is that Miami has all those beautiful traits, too!
[gallery size="full" columns="1" ids="2145,2170,2146"]
Part of what makes Miami so entertaining and economical is that whenever you want something free and fun to do, just go down to the miles and miles of white sand beach and get instantly happy. Another thing why Miami it’s famous for because of the beauty of their amazing architecture you can stroll the streets and feast on the creamy yellow, pink, blue, and purple walls around you, walls flowing into the fancy shapes of art deco style.
Now where should you stay? That’s pretty simple = East Hotel Miami, but why? The answer to that it’s pretty simple... everything about the hotel speaks beauty and hospitality 10/10.
From the moment you get to the East Miami you’re greeted with professionalism by the staff. The rooms have amazing views. The pool it’s super relaxing and who doesn’t love to just layout by the pool and have a moment to relax?... the architecture + design within the hotel gives you the perfect aesthetic we all look for when it comes to taking the perfect photo to share with the world among our peers through social media.
Hope that helped some of you with your questions on what destination you guys should add to your list of travels adventures this summer.. Don’t hesitate to shoot me a message through twitter or instagram love you all and stay cool. - xoxo
Sometimes we all need to experience new things and that's exactly what me and some of my closest friends who I worked and get to collaborate from time did in Vegas we had the honor to kick off with Tao their newly launch V.I.We experience you might ask yourself what exactly am I talking about??
When you're purchasing a ticket for V.I.We they give you access to an area of the club with several shared tables that have open seating. The area will come complete with bottles of Vodka, Tequila and champagne which will be replenished as needed throughout the night. Drinks are made for you by their cocktail staff, and security is in the area as well, just like regular bottle service. In V.I.We , you share the tables and the bottle service with your fellow partygoers so everyone can enjoy being a VIP in Vegas for a fraction of the cost. Pricing starts at $50 plus tax and gratuity for females and $100 plus tax and gratuity for males, pricing is subject to change based on special events and holiday weekends.
Honestly at first didn't know what to expect.. now let me tell each one of you if you ever in Vegas by the best possible decision you can make it's to join and you don't have to worry about spending absurd amounts of cash for a bottle services... you can focus on having fun and get your drink on through the night with your closest friends plus enjoy Vegas the right way.
Can't thanks enough Tao Group in Vegas for making the experience one to remember for a lifetime and I look forward to going back very soon.
In the mean time if you have any questions feel free to ask me anything or make sure to check out their socials below to stay up to the date with what's going on within their creative happenings.

Much love to each one of you and stay tune for more adventures.

#HeelysDoesCoachella x Revolve Festival
Embarking on a journey with your friends can be quite challenging but I believe it’s something that every person should experience at least once in his or her life. Exploring, conquering fears together and discovering new things about each other makes the road trip and experience ten times better, even when we return from the trip we took with friends, we will always keep those memories and share them for the rest of our lives.
As our trip to Coachella 2017 weekend 1 came to an end I couldn’t help to feel overjoyed throughout the entire festival + all the creative happenings thanks to @HeelysWorldWide our overall experience was beyond fun and yet super creative hope to keep partnering with brands such as Heelys who are all about creating moments that will stay with you for the rest of your life!!

I love the comparison between dressing well and speaking a foreign language. Because the great thing about having a great sense of style is this: It’s not something you need to be born with. It’s a skill like any other, that can be learned like any other. All it takes is a little practice.
Getting out of your comfort zone and defining your own personal style and building your wardrobe around it can be hard task especially If you are a fashion newbie. How are you supposed to know whether you prefer bright colours or neutrals or feel best in the right Jacket??? Here’s how: You try it out.
Not all of us are models or a celebrity, and that's okay. You don't need that to have style. To have style, you need to know how to tell when clothes fit you, and what kind of clothes and styles you can use to flatter your body type regardless if you are boy or girl.
One of the key essentials every guy should have in their closet it's the right leather jacket that's why I chose for my personal wardrobe @coach their menswear spring collection it's so beautiful and fits right with anyone style.[gallery size="full" columns="1" ids="1792,1785,1789"]
The number one thing you can do to improve your sense of style and train your eye is this: look at how other people are doing it! What types of pieces are they wearing, what colours do they mix, what shoes do they pair with their outfits, how do they accessorise and so on, my favorite thing to do is people watching it allows me to stay on top of what’s trending and I learned a lot over the past few years on what’s the right thing to wear.
Hope my quick two cents in the matter of having the right style help some of you in anyway to sorta out what's right for you the idea behind my upcoming content and re-branding my blog it's to help each one of you to growth with me and stay on point with our style game.
The Jacket you can get it from @coach latest menswear spring collection.

much love to each one of you and thanks for the support. xo
On saturday afternoon because of a job I had to shoot in San Diego decided on my way back to make the most of my day and document what I can of my short day trip.Lately my life it’s been a bit to crazy with my recent move to Los Angeles, CA not an easy task for such spread out City but I can’t really complain the amount of support been getting from a lot of you it’s tremendous and I’m very thankful for it. My first stop was to stare and appreciate the sunrise as I enter Los Angeles can’t help it but to think about the following quote:
Dean’s California–wild, sweaty, important, the land of lonely and exiled and eccentric lovers come to forgather like birds, and the land where everybody somehow looked like broken-down, handsome, decadent movie actors. – Jack Kerouac, On the Road
The more I think about that quote by Jack Kerouac, brings me to the million dollar question ‘How do I stay true to my Style? Well not all of us are models or a celebrity, and that's okay. You don't need that to have style. To have style, you need to know how to tell when clothes fit you, and what kind of clothes and styles you can use to flatter your body type regardless if you are boy or girl that right there it’s my motto and why I always choose to wear what makes happy.
The number one thing you can do to improve your sense of style and train your eye is this: look at how other people are doing it! What types of pieces are they wearing, what colours do they mix, what shoes do they pair with their outfits, how do they accessorise and so on.
As you can see I chose to wear something that will allow me to stay stylish at the same time still feel comfortable it was long day for me already driving all the from San Diego to make it to Los Angeles for a day full of activities.
Can’t get enough of my Retro Lifestyle Sneakers by Brooke Heritage they’re casual, lifestyle footwear line that celebrates the history, heritage and spirit of the run. This style is from the Imperial collection which is inspired by the opulence of historical monarchies with a regal aesthetic The Regent (name of the shoe) feature a suede and velvet upper and metallic detailing for a touch of elegance.
They’re indeed my ultimate favorite shoes at the moment. A lot of you know how passionate I am about finding the right shoes the will make me look and feel like million bucks and this pair make me felt beyond amazing throughout my entire day trip.
Because the great thing about having a great sense of style is this: It’s not something you need to be born with. It’s a skill like any other, that can be learned like any other. All it takes is a little practice.
[gallery size="full" columns="1" ids="1798,1799,1800,1801"]
You know me can’t get through my day without a good coffee especially if you’re driving through Venice Beach.
On that note always remember to smile freely and I appreciate the gifts that life offers to us and doesn’t matter how busy you might be do and wear what makes you happy.
Because I know some of you already tweeted me and message on instagram in regards of where to get the shoes you can do so at Brooks Heritage and don’t forget to give them some love on social media too @BrooksHeritage xoxo
Thanks for your support always - DB
