Seattle Gents x Art Of Shaving

Thanks to The Art of Shaving and Teavana for collaborating with the Seattle Gents. During this exclusive event we received a thorough demonstration on shaving techniques, and information on special holiday deals on grooming products. If you’re looking for stocking stuffer ideas, I would recommend checking the Art of Shaving. During the demonstration we sampled Teavana’s limited edition White Chocolate Peppermint Rooibos tea to sip on. The tea was a perfect choice to warm our spirit during this chilly Seattle weather.

Goldfinch Tavern’s Weekend Brunch

Some of Seattle’s best style enthusiasts were invited to experience Goldfinch Tavern’s weekend brunch at the luxury Four Season Hotel Seattle and oh man, what a meal!. The brunch buffet is packed full of sweet and savory delights that will give you life. I would highly recommend this brunch because of it’s beautiful waterfront backdrop, unlimited mimosas and central location of downtown Seattle. Search for the hashtag #SeattleGents on Twitter, Instagram or Facebook for more details.

Fall Style

Fall weather is coming Seattle. I’m not ready! As the weather get colder, I’ve been switching my style to leather jackets and wool hats. Some of these pieces are from the GAP x GQ collection. I’ve also been playing around with different color socks too. What do you think?

Random pictures of Stockholm

I’m really falling for this city! I can’t remember the last time travel to a city abroad and the people made me feel so at comfortable. I especially enjoy how the city is made small islands. These small walk-able islands, are home to city Parks, museums, old towns and other historic sights. I hope you enjoy my random pictures of Stockholm. My plan is to go back some day.

5 Stockholm travel tips

July 20, 2016
5 Stockholm tips

5 Stockholm travel tips

1. Purchase a Stockholm Pass

Stockholm passes will give you free entry into some of Stockholm’s fantastic attractions. It also allows you to ride free boat and bus tours that take you all around the city. The Stockholm Pass can be purchased before you arrive, at Arlanda airport or Åhlens department store in the city.

2. Walk around the city

I’ve found Stockholm streets to be very walkable, clean and safe. The weather in Stockholm is very mild so it’s perfect for a Summer evening stroll.

3. Be prepared to spend money.

Stockholm is kinda pricey. You’ll pay for convince, so I would stay away from tourist areas. Newbies can be some what overwhelmed by the end of the trip and they realize they’ve spent more money than expected. Meals can cost close to $20 without beverages.

4. Be prepared to search for Swedish food in Stockholm.

I’ve found Swedish food is not the most popular cuisine in Stockholm. You’ll be more likely to see other European restaurants during your time in city. If you want to find traditional Swedish foods you’ll have to specifically look for them.

5. learn simple Swedish

Even though most Swedes know english, I feel like words like “Hej”/hey (hello) or ‘Tak’/tack (thanks) will get you a long way.

What is Fika?

What is Fika?

When you travel to Stockholm you’re going to see the word ‘Fika’ pasted on coffee shops and cafes all around the city, but what does it mean? Fika, is slang for coffee break. The act of Fika generally includes a cup of coffee, possibly conversation and a snack; which includes sandwiches or pastries. You may might not believe this, but Sweden is ranked 3rd in coffee consumption per capita. Coffee choices can be found virtually anywhere around the city, so after a bit of research, I settled on Fabrique Stenugnsbageri, as my first place to have Fika. This place has excellent pastries. I would recommend ordering the cinnamon bun and latte for your first go.
