[gallery size="full" columns="1" ids="2291,2278,2284,2282,2283"]

I found myself tonight during the VMAS alone sadly as some of you know I’m usually with my squad of friends documenting everything single details of my life and sharing every precious moment with each and one of you… during all the performance a beautiful girl came up to me and asked me where my shoes and jacket was from I said the jacket got it as a gift because my dear friend knew was going through some hard times awhile back and she gave something the resembles those “Profound” moments like the jacket and the shoes are a collab made by one of my ultimate favorite brands to work with @heelysworldwide and Dj @hi_mija they’re def. The new improve version and I love them so much.

Everyone the knows me.. 100% knows how much I love working with brands such @heelysworldwide the have message behind their concept and I can’t get enough of those smiles and happiness you see in people's faces every time you mentioned the brand. For those of you who were asking me about the brand you can check them out: @heelysworldwide on social media and you can also check the following page https://heelys.com/vma  to get a closer look at the shoes you might want or desire..   ahead and shop until you can’t anymore.

I share the best moment that made my life wonderful. Some of these experiences might inspire you too for saying life is beautiful” stay true to yourself always.

My Golden Trip Part I x Vienna Austria

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]

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. Where you can find those golden HEELYS? easy feel free to check them out in the following link https://heelys.com/ and don't forget to give them follow or checkout their social media at @heelysworldwide

East Miami

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 columns="1" size="full" ids="2171"]

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.

[gallery size="full" columns="1" ids="2145,2170,2146"]

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

Heelys Does Coachella

What’s more liberating than hitting the open road with your friends? looking for adventure as you race along a remote stretch of tarmac in the name of adventure?, the Coachella music festival has inspired a new generation of cross-country bohemian odysseys across the desert to conquer style, music and all of the above the includes the word  FUN in it.... that's why I team up with @heelysworldwide to take you behind the scenes to see what myself and a bunch of other content creators were up too during the first weekend of #Coachella2017.

Day 1 Friday x Palm Springs 

[gallery size="full" columns="1" ids="1989,2007,1990"] [gallery size="full" columns="1" ids="2009,1991"]

Nylon Midnight Garden  

Kicking off our night the right way with  #HeelysDoesCoachella at the @NylonMag Midnight Garden Party. Cheers to an amazing weekend! @HeelysWorldWide #WhyWalk

Day 2 x Saturday 

Ready to take over the #Coachella2017 Celebrations with @HeelysWorldWide

For today’s young bohemians the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival  experience or any Coachella experience would be remiss without some exciting highlights and memories, right? No matter if you go on weekend one or two (why is there such competition between the two?!), there’s bound to be something that stands out. You never know who will show up or what surprises are in store each year.

[gallery size="full" columns="1" ids="1985,2027,2026,1915,1997,1993,1992"]

Day 3 x Sunday 

#HeelysDoesCoachella x Revolve Festival 

[gallery size="full" columns="1" ids="2005,1932,2006,1996,1995,2004,2000,1999,1998,2029,2028,2031,2030"]

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!! Can’t thank you enough for the feedback each one of you gave us on our socials and  don’t hesitate to show some massive love to @HeelysWorldWide heelys.com for allowing us to bring you along and show you through our digital space all the fun creative activations the happened during the festival.

Music of The Week

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]

Music moves us, and soothes us. It stimulates. It makes us want to dance or sing. It makes us feel happy or sad, inspired or uplifted. It affects our mood in all kinds of infinite ways. It can be exquisitely subtle or wildly raucous: from a lullaby, to a war cry for revolution.

That’s why I wanted to share with you guys the following playlist I’m completely taken by all these tracks they allow me to get me through the week.

On the road with Brooks Heritage

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.

You know me can’t get through my day without a good coffee especially if you’re driving through Venice Beach.

[gallery size="full" columns="1" ids="1798,1799,1800,1801"]  

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
