I think this Summer 2013 is probably the sportiest season of all. From Nike´s, to New Balance´s and the cool Arenas (Balenciaga), you can spot everyone wearing sneakers. 
I´m all for it. Comfy shoes all the way. Today, I decided to wear my trusty Vans, and paired them with some slacks and a chambray shirt, for a casual yet still office appropriated attire.

Giveaway: 2 Pairs of Classic Series Glasses from Firmoo

Want to know a secret? I wear glasses. I don´t think that I can remember not seeing me in them. I actually tried to wear contacts but that didn´t work out very well. It actually didn´t work, really. And the older I get, the more time I find myself in my glasses. I actually don´t care. Frames are great and they can make your look stand out. And if Beckham wears frames, you just know that geeky chic is trending.

So, I was actually quite interested when Firmoo contacted me about doing a giveaway. Probably there´s more like me that could use a free pair. More money for clothes, right? 

And you´re like "What the hell is Firmoo"? Well, Firmoo is an on-line prescription and sunglasses company. They are committed  to offering customers the best quality products at the most affordable prices.  Their glasses run 80 to 90% less than the average glasses store. They also have an awesome program  for new customers to test their products and service for free by paying shipping only (more money for clothes, get it?).

Another great feature of the website is that you can easily upload a photo of yourself and then "try" your glasses choice to see what they'll look like on you. That´s kinda dope! (l´m getting so hipster). It´s so easy that I actually managed to use it. It didn´t even show that funny messages like "Error" or "You´re stupid. Try it again". 

[I'm thinking of getting these.]

But yeah, you probably don´t care. So, let´s see where you enter, shall we?  Firmoo is giving away TWO pairs, I repeat, TWO pairs of frames, selected at http://www.firmoo.com/classic-series.html.
[Two winners in total and each will win a pair] 
Eyeglasses include 1.50 single vision lenses and sunglasses include zero-powered lenses! Prizes DON´T include shipping, so winners have to actually pay something. But really, new glasses for the price of shipping? (i´ll ask my mommy to pay for it)

More good news? If there´s over 50 valid competitors they’ll offer an EXTRA pair of free glasses OR sunglasses including shipping to the luckiest winner! So, 3 prizes if the giveaway gets 50+ valid participants! I´m awesome or what? Well, I´m not, but Firmoo is, so whateves!
Only entries within the Firmoo delivery range will be valid so please double check here: http://www.firmoo.com/help-c-10.shtml

Note: This giveaway will run until Sunday, August 18th.  Winners will be announced via e-mail and here on the Rafflecopter widget.

Gifts for Him | Editor´s Pick

"Hey C., it´s my boyfriend´s birthday and I need your help. I don´t know what to get him and I´m desperate."

"C. I need your help. It´s my dumbass brother´s birthday and I don´t know what to offer him. Please help!"

Questions like those are usually in my email or my tumblr´s message box, so for once and for all, I decided to go all GQ on you and make a post about it.
Buying stuff for your special guy, for your "dumbass" brother or even your father (also include all the other male relatives and friends that you can think off), is not rocket science, but well, I can get it. Sometimes, they just seem to have everything, which leaves you wondering what to get him for his birthday or Christmas or Hanukkah or Children´s day, right
Does the man in your life have a selection of power tools that are collecting dust instead of creating it? 
My selection includes some of the best gifts your dude needs, so let´s just not risk another disappointing gift by perusing the selection we have here, shall we? 


At one time, every well-dressed man needed a good set of cufflinks to complete his outfit. When buttons took over, they seemed to dwindle away for all but the most prolific of wearers. Well, they are back in style now and even better than they were. Cufflinks now come in a dizzying selection from plain to dazzling. Pick out a simple striped cufflink or go all out with a set of Indy race cars. No matter what taste or style your man has, there is sure to be something in the line of cufflinks that will please him. 
[You can also get it custom: http://www.cuffwear.com/en/]

Leather Gloves

No man will resist wearing a sleek, warm pair of finely crafted leather gloves. They keep the hands warm in the winter while brushing the snow off the car, and they allow a good, firm grip on the wheel while driving. Purchase good quality, leather gloves for lasting enjoyment.
[Just show him the pictures below. Trust me]


Not all that fashionable but still a great gift for a guy is an electronic cigarette. They are the latest device to aid a person in quitting smoking. They contain an e-liquid inside a device that looks like a real cigarette. When inhaled, the liquid is heated and converts into a type of “smoke” that a smoker inhales. There are no toxic chemicals in these; only natural ingredients that help the smoker kick the habit. buy electronic cigarettes.
[I´m actually getting this one as a Christmas gift for my father. Find it here: http://www.180smoke.com/]

Designer Scarf

So, he actually can dress himself in a stylish manner with coordinating colors and matching shoes. But can he accessorize? Help him out!
If you know what coat he wears regularly, purchase a stylish, designer scarf to go with that winter coat, or just go with a simple one tone that he can match with everything.


Men like to smell great too ok? They´re into the latest designer fragrances that are on the market now, as much as you do, so just find him something fresh and tasteful, and he´ll love it. If it´s for your "dumbass" brother, try to find it on sale or something. 

Single-Malt Scotch

If you enjoy whiskey, you will know how enjoyable fine, single-malt scotch tastes. The sky is virtually the limit with prices but there are some really good and affordable whiskeys that you can indulge yourself with. Share a drink with your loved one or friends; they are sure to enjoy a nice social gathering while discussing the latest fashion trends or sports teams. Don't forget a set of crystal rock glasses to go with the scotch.

Designer Bags

Make sure that he actually uses one, tho´. Then just go for something simple, that he can use and easily match with different attires. Make sure that the bag suits his needs.
You have articles that go from affordable brands like Zara or Fred Perry, to the ones that will leave you a lot lighter (talking about bank account), like Louis Vuitton, Prorsum or my personal favourite, Bottega Veneta.

Designer Sunglasses

Everyone needs a pair, so just go for the classics. My advice is Ray-Ban (clubsmaster, aviators or wayfarer) or Persol.
Make sure that you take a picture of him, so the sales clerk will help you choosing the best option for his anatomy. 
I actually already have a post with my personal favorites, so don´t be lazy and find it. Just sayin´...

As I´ve stated before, I´m usually not into trends. I find it quite boring when I see everyone sporting the same thing, but (and there´s always a but, right?), the coolest thing, is that you can use it and still keep your individuality, while mixing it with almost everything. 
Oh, by the way, I´m talking about the Nike Free Run.
As usual, it´s for him and for her, so be smart and get a boyfriend or a girlfriend that uses the same number. Just saying...

P.S. Nike´s the new black, my friends.
