Groom Prep

Who gets ready at the last minute? Last Friday, a client of mine asks me to help a friend of his out of a jam. An hour later, I find out his friend is getting married on Saturday and forgets his shirt and bowtie back home in Virginia. Needless to say, I found the right fitting shirt and bowtie and he’s a happy camper.

And you thought all the groom had to do was show up! This situation reminded me of how I prepped for my day. Unless I woke up thinking I was Denzel, I couldn’t just roll out of bed and go get married. When your big day rolls around, be smart, and use a checklist. My list was not too complicated.

1. Pack your clothes early

2. Pack grooming products in Dopp kit

3. Get shirt pressed day of event

4. Make sure you have the rings

5. Your “best man” is your backup reminder

Books aren’t Dead

When was the last time you read a good book? With the popularity of the Nook & Kindle, have people forgotten what it feels like to turn a page, or use a highlighter on their favorite sentence. Bookstores aren’t on every corner like Starbucks, but they do serve a purpose when utilized. 

I paid a visit to the new concept store that Barnes & Noble opened in Scarsdale, NY. A smartly curated floor plan, with every genre you would expect. As consumers are getting excited for albums, I was glad to see a dedicated section with albums and CD’s. 


 Scouring this labyrinth of a store will work up an appetite. With a restaurant that has a combination indoor / outdoor space, this is the perfect place to grab a cup of “Joe” or wine and get lost in a book or two.

Thanks for reading, now it’s time you picked up a book.

Miami getaway

                

There’s nothing like getting on a plane, and flying the friendly skies. With a much needed break from NYC, Miami was the first place on the list. The Fontainebleau Hotel became my residence for three days, and it lived up to the hype. Whether you play by the pool or play on the beach, the opulence of this area is sure to recharge your batteries. Travelling to Miami, keep it comfortable on the plane, but don’t forget to pack your swimming trunks, sunglasses, and sunscreen.  I can’t tell you what to pack for those South Beach nights, but a nice pair of shoes is a must.
