A NIGHT OUT WITH LA ROCHE-POSAY

I recently had the pleasure of teaming up with one of my favorite skin care lines La Roche Posay.  Ive' worked with them a few times in the past and even had the opportunity to fly to New York as an ambassador of their Be Clear Boot Camp Campaign. This year the brand came to LA to host their Acne Derm Class along with Derm Store for a chance to "Get The Facts About Getting CLear Skin". The evening event took place at the Cabanas at the Mondrian Hotel and West Hollywood, and was filled with great cocktails, hors d'oeuvres, and some of LA's leading beauty and skincare influencers and media publications. The most exciting and informative part of the evening was...

NYFW MEN’S FW18

So NYFW was a hit! I'm finally getting back into the swing of things back here in LA after an entire week in New York. Yup, I faced the cold and I did it in style! I somehow managed to travel with a weeks worth of looks, including two heavy fur coats that I managed to fit all in 1 suitcase and 1 carry on bag. I landed in NYC on Superbowl Sunday for a little bit of fun before all the craziness of NYFW:Men's started. Monday rolled around and just like that I was ripping and running from show to show starting with Suit Supply FW18 with barely anytime to eat lunch. The thrill! Monday was probably the busiest day with...

ASOS X Darren Wears It Well “The Look Book”

I'm super excited to finally reveal "The Look Book", a culmination of five looks in collaboration with one of my favorite brands- Asos.com. I discovered Asos years ago, after being bored with mall stores and tired of wearing the same clothes as other people. It immedietly became my 'go to' place for statement pieces that I knew no one else would have. I was also able to bring just about any outfit idea in my head to life because of their vast selection of merchandise. I can't begin to tell you how many times people will stop me and say ' I love that- where did you get it?", and majority of the time my response is Asos.com. Fast forward...

Celebrating Fall with Zappos x Steve Madden

I recently teamed up with my friends at Zappos in celebration of Fall footwear, and their latest collaboration with Steve Madden! One of the reasons I personally love Fall is because it's the official welcome of BOOT SEASON! My all time favorite shoe to wear during the Fall is the classic Chelsea Boot. It's timeless, effortless, and classy all in one, and definitely a conversation starter when paired with a stylish jacket. Speaking of Chelsea boots, I had to get my hands on the new 'Bryson' boot by Steve Madden. I decided to go with the sleek black colorway in suede, perfect to pair with my favorite slim fit denim jeans. Ordering my Chelsea's from Zappos was super easy with...

NOT SO SLEEPLESS IN SEATTLE- WEEKEND AT HOTEL ANDRA

So I recently did something that Iv'e wanted to do for a very long time! I took a weekend trip to the beautiful city of Seattle! It's nothing like hopping on a plane and skipping town with some friends for a weekend of good times. For me, Seattle offers the perfect contrast to the hustle and bustle of Los Angeles and it was just what I needed at the perfect time. I partnered with the amazing Hotel Andra located in the heart of downtown Seattle and enjoyed a weekend of relaxation and luxury. The hotel was beyond beautiful and the location is walking distance to Pike Place Market, and all of the delicious restaurants located downtown. I arrived to Hotel Andra...

GOOGLE’S DRESS CODE EVENT

I recently had the pleasure of speaking as a panelist at Google's Dress Code event at the Google headquarters in Venice beach! The purpose of the event was to celebrate the connection between computer science and fashion with local high school teens . It's time to shatter the stereotype that computer science is only for "the nerdy guy with glasses" and let the next generation know that computer science is involved in nearly all aspects of life, even fashion. I was given the opportunity to speak on the fashion influencer panel with four other amazing influencers. We were able to share from our own personal experiences as influencers, just how greatly intertwined computer science and fashion are for us. As an...

LEADING A LIFE OF INFLUENCE

People always ask me, "What do you do?" I'd love to tell people that I just get clothes sent to me, take dope pictures on Instagram, and live the life of an LA socialite. Although this is true, it takes a lot of behind the scenes hard work to pull it all off. I started off my adult life following what I thought was the blueprint to living a successful life. I went to school, earned my Doctorate degree in Pharmacy (yes I'm a doctor), and dove straight into that good ole' 9-5 lifestyle. Then I realized I hated it. I also realized that I could live a successful life on my own terms. Fast forward to this very moment...

STYLECATION- CARTAGENA, COLOMBIA

So I celebrated my birthday this year in South America. That's right, I hopped on a flight for an extended weekend in sunny Cartagena, Colombia! Anyone who knows me knows that I love to bring in every birthday in a new country. There's nothing like waking up on your special day in a new destination, with new energy, and an amazing hotel of course. While in Cartagena I stayed at the amazing Intercontinental Hotel with an amazing view of the Old City. My first day in Cartagena was spent recuperating and relaxing poolside with mojitos. Nothing like a care free day laying by the pool with a good book and a cocktail. Next was dinner, and I must say that one...
