It was reported a few days ago by various online news venues that Captain, a German Shepherd in Argentina, has refused to leave the site of his master’s grave, even after six years following his death.
Talk about loyalty and love! His owner, Miguel Guzman, died in 2006, and he still sits guarding over his grave after all these years. Captain originally ran away from home shortly after Miguel’s death and the family did not know where he ran off to. They assumed he was struck by a car or completely lost in the world. Turns out, he made his way to Miguel’s grave, even though he’s never been there before.
As it turns out, little loyal Captain, could somehow sense the exact location of Miguel’s grave. He was taken home by the family, but again he returned in the evening to keep watch over the grave.
Everyone should experience such love and loyalty. And remember dear readers, DOG is GOD spelled backwards. Enjoy this beautiful fall day!
Words cannot describe McQueen’s new Fall 2012 Collection. Just watch…
Straight from the mouth of GQ magazine contributor Matthew Sebra: “Sarah Burton’s Fall 2012 collection for the house of McQueen celebrated one of the brand’s hallmarks, razor sharp tailoring, and to let guys experience the roped shouldered goods beyond a traditional lookbook the brand put together the above clip. It’s traditional Savile Row menswear meets signature McQueen plays on proportion and pattern and loaded with natty rigs a stylish (and loaded) man could use.”

Things to try this season: Fashion Stripes with something not striped (i.e. a striped blue and white shirt with solid bright pants/capris, or with another type of print that stands out.) No socks and loafers.
Why not try a pair of green funky glasses for spring?
Funky sunglasses. Let’s face it, you can always take them off. That’s one of the best things about subglasses as a spring fashion accessory. It’s cool to look cool for a bit, and then switch to the “normal” you in a matter of seconds. Why not try a new color/shape/style? If aviators are your norm, try a pair of larger plastic frames, maybe in a light shade of green. Love Experiment, but not too much. Dating tip for men: dinner/coffee/cocktail/anything on the water is good for a date.
Money It’s okay to splurge a little on new clothes and accessories at the beginning of every season. Just make sure you keep it basic. You have the rest of the season to get the more expensive, ultra-trendy stuff—so for now just keep it simple: plain tees, light fabrics, basic colors, shorts, sandals/loafers/spring shoes. Sex Hands are important. They don’t get enough credit in the romance world. Touch is one of the five senses, so don’t forget to use it every way.
Are you a Prince or a Frog? Kiss him and find out.
If it’s not in the kiss, it won’t be anywhere else either. That’s all. To Do Go running on a spring day. If your not a big runner, just try it. You may get to really like it, especially if you have a river close by.
Get gelato. Like tomorrow for lunch, maybe. Pay for the person behind you in line. At a drive thru? Pay for the person behind you’s meal. Make it a pay it forward kind of day. Make a smoothie for breakfast. It’s yummy, you can carry it on the go, and it will make you happy. end of story.
GQ.com recently featured a collection of must-have bags for fall 2012. But we’re thinking in terms of a more transitional fashion sense, like from winter to spring. Taking inspiration from GQ writer Matthew Sebra, we’re proud to feature the coolest, most functional bags this season (and next). The best part is, the all seem to be made impeccably, and many are classics, ensuring your purchase won’t be short lived.
Here are the Best Bags from New York Fashion Week:
Nothing is better than a beat-up, vintage inspired rucksack (nothing beside, let’s say, cufflinks of course…) This season we’ll be seeing a lot of canvas/wool blends mixed with leather accents. The great thing about this is it keeps the weight of the bag on the lower scale.
Fun, playful, and still latching onto Spring and Summer, these no-hassle, yet elegant, totes from John Bartlett are perfect for the seasonal transition. It came go to the office, as well as the beach, and we love the little details consisting of red and white stripes. Reminds us of our own fun accessory we like to call the Red Mint Cufflink…
As we reported in our earlier blog, entitled “Three Designers We Adore,” Joseph’s Abboud’s fall collection is stunning. He may even take the prize for NYC Fashion Week’s Best Runway show (in our book anyways). And as always, pair Abboud’s collection with anything from Aymara this fall season. The juxtaposition of light airy Butterfly Cufflinks and sturdy canvas bags will fit the aesthetic season.
Bastian’s collection also made our blog pages last fall, featuring orange James Dean inspired looks. Remember our “Fall Trend Report 2011: Numero Dos”? Now we couldn’t help feature his 70s meets French Decadence inspired bag for this year’s new Fall collection. And pair this decadent bag with these Chainsaw cufflinks:
