Bedding- Joseph Abboud

I recently moved into a new place earlier this year in downtown Manhattan. It’s both super exciting and stressful dressing up my apartment, but I’m finally getting close! Here’s a little peak into my bedroom.

I’ve partnered with Sam Salem & Son, a leading manufacturer of branded and private label home-fashion products for major retailers since 1944, to dress up my bedroom with one of their brands, and one of my favorite american designer specializing in tailoring, Joseph Abboud.

I’ve been sleeping on it for about a week now, and I’m obsessed to say the least. The quality is superb and the attention to detail is on point. I’m really digging the brown and gray color scheme, plus the throw pillows complete the bed. The set is super masculine and versatile so it can go well with any kind of bed essentially.

In addition to Joseph Abboud, Sam Salem & Son design and manufacture bedding under the brands, Posh Home, Organic essentials, Kathy Ireland, Vintage Classic and Rampage.

You can shop the Joseph Abboud set directly at Bed Bath & Beyond, in-store or online.

The Forumla E Race with Audi

My love for cars comes from my dad, who’s an auto-engineer and owned a car dealership when I was younger.

This past April, I attended an Audi event in New York City where they introduced their new breed of sports cars including the new Audi R8 GT AKA my future whip (really, really soon).

Last weekend I was invited to go see the Formula E race, which was an all-electric car race, in Brooklyn with Audi. This is my first time ever experiencing anything remotely close to an actual car race.The German-leading car brand had their own car, and their first edition of the electric vehicle, in the race led by Lucas Di Grassi. It’s super awesome that the Audi Sport brand has the performance and technology to make cars for the track (like you see above) and the street.

Since the Formula E  race had all electric cars the noise was quite low, which is surprisingly pleasant, and nothing like what you hear on Need For Speed. When we arrived to the venue we got to see the team assembling and preparing the all-electric vehicle for the race. After that we headed on over to the Emotion Club, which was an air-conditioned VIP Tent filled with booze and food prior to the race.

For the event, I wore a personalized custom bomber which Audi made for us–I can’t wait for the Fall season to wear this bad boy again.

If you missed it this year, don’t worry, the race is scheduled to be back in New York next summer (and again for the next 5 years).
