I spend a lot of time traveling to get content for my Instagram and blog. I put more miles on my Jeep in two years than my grandfather put on his car in 10!(No joke… i'm out of control lol) When I spend a day taking pictures or even when I go away on a short trip there are some essential products I can't do without. Because it takes more than an iPhone camera and an outfit to do what I do, I put together a list of all the items that are a necessity in order for me to run my blog and instagram on the road. I hope this helps!
I have had a love affair with jewelry ever since I was a young gay chap. I went to private school all my life wearing a dreadful uniform that made me feel bored with my appearance. I wasn’t able to express myself with my clothing and still needed to find a way to feel less drab and a bit more stylish. This is where my bracelets and watch collection enters the picture.
Last Saturday my friends and I spent the day dressed to the nines watching polo. We definitely were the best dressed there in our Brooks Brothers outfits! This is my second year going to The Victory Cup and I couldn't believe how fast the year went that polo-time was here already!
This past Sunday my friends and I spent a few hours in Montauk. After the crazy busy week, we all wanted to just go by the water and enjoy the beautiful weather. It was a pretty quick trip all in all but it was much needed and totally recharged all our batteries!
This past Memorial Day my friends and I spent our weekend in East Hampton. Our house was beautiful, the weather was fantastic, and the memories are endless! Check out some pics from the weekend and read on to see how we spent our days and what I wore!
If you were to pick up my dry cleaning, you would think I was a lumberjack. During the colder months all I wear is plaid and flannel. I love how effortless it is to put on an L.L. Bean button up, step into a pair of jeans and go about my day. Besides these shirts being warm and cozy, they fit me perfectly.
For those who aren't aware, I took over an empty desk at my families' office. I run my business from there and besides having a creative space of my own, its grand that I can "work" in the same environment with my mom, aunt, and cousin.
For the past year I have immersed myself into the culture of Instagram. I watched youtube videos on how to grow a following, read books written by successful bloggers, and learned the most by trying (and failing at times) with my own account, @culleyco .
I live only 45 minutes from Manhattan but because I prefer Netflix to night clubs I seem to never make it into the city. I met up with my friend Emily (@empirestyleofmind) downtown and we had a day!
I have discovered my new favorite accessory. I always carry around a notebook in my bag so I can be ready whenever inspiration hits! It’s suprsingly hard to find a stylish, classic looking journal and it’s depressing just writing in a boring black book all day. God has clearly forgiven me for the whole “being gay” thing and decided to show me he loves me again by bringing Barrington Gifts into my life! This brand is preppy in a very non-traditional way (which I love) and all of their products are amazing quality that you can recognize just by looking at them. This notebook inspires me to work even harder because I love looking at it while writing in it! Shop this notebook jacket below and check out the many amazing products from Barrington Gifts!
