10 Man Cave Ideas For Real Men | Home Decor Tips

Looking for some ways to spice up your man cave? These man cave ideas will have you inspired to re-decorate your “cave” into the cool, refined, and rugged zone it was meant to be. Remember, you can still have a very masculine room without it resembling the dive-bar next door (no neon beer signs, no ripped vinyl seats). What you do need is some raw material here and there, some cleverly curated corners, and a few solid punches. The devil is in the details.

Black walls contrasted with good lighting in your men's office with exposed cement ceilings and floors make for sophisticated and elegant design for the bold man. | 10 Man Cave Ideas For Real Men

INSTA-FAMOUS!

Ok, I’m not instagram famous. Or anywhere near being instagram famous… BUT, recently a few of my posts WERE FEATURED on other sites! For example…

ON BUZZFEED!!!!

This Buzzfeed article: 28 Drool-Worthy Junk Food Treats to Eat in L.A. featured my #onthetable shot from Wurstkuche. Buzzfeed gets most of their photos from instagram, so it’s not like mine was anything special. But hey, I’m still flattered. 🙂

ON SURF CITY USA

My childhood hometown of Huntington Beach, aka Surf City, has an Instagram Account, (of course… #tourists). So sometimes they reblog photos taken in the city with the tag #SURFCITYUSA. Well they regrammed MY PHOTO, and it received over 700 likes!! That is more likes than the quantity of followers I have, so that’s cool, right? Showing here: (originally here)

ON DIYREADY

DiyReady is just my employer, no big deal, and I have given them the liberty of regramming any of my work related photos. However, I am particularly proud of this one. (originally found here). I took this shot from our “meet the team” photoshoot, and added the headline with the OVER app. We don’t have a notable amount of followers yet, but hey, it’s still nice to see my work reposted!

Meet the @diyreadyofficial team! Quite the attractive bunch, aren't they?

Anyways…

It’s not like these photos were life-altering moments. I don’t even think their being featured got me any more followers, maybe some more likes… but that’s not what I’m here for anyways. 😛 I just like to use Instagram because it’s a way to artfully express what you’re all about to like-minded individuals.

With all that being said, this is also a boast-post to document a step on my stairway to stardom. #follow4follow just kidding. #sorrynotsorry

LOVE YOU! XOXO

Indefinite Permanence – To Making it Count

Today I start my next big journey. I’m finally moving somewhere where there is no end in sight. For the first time in my life I will have no plans and no future obligations. Instead I will have permanence.

All I know is I have 1 job and 1 apartment; this could last months, years, or just a few days. Hey, you never know. What I do know is what I am doing at this very moment. For that matter, as this post goes live, I should be in a U-Haul transporting all of my earthly belongings, including my scooter, to my new apartment in Downtown LA, with the help of some dear friends.

Whatever happens next is yet to be written.

This spot of time in my life parallels one of my favorite moments in cinema. A moment performed by none other than the great Di Caprio as the young Jack Dawson in Titanic, of course.

His toast:

Well, right now my address is the RMS Titanic. After that, I’m on God’s good humor.  . . . I mean, I got everything I need right here with me. I got air in my lungs, a few blank sheets of paper. I mean, I love waking up in the morning not knowing what’s gonna happen or, who I’m gonna meet, where I’m gonna wind up. Just the other night I was sleeping under a bridge and now here I am on the grandest ship in the world having champagne with you fine people. I figure life’s a gift and I don’t intend on wasting it. You don’t know what hand you’re gonna get dealt next. You learn to take life as it comes at you… to make each day count.

I couldn’t have said it better myself. So I won’t. Cheers!

Everybody loves scarves. They make the perfect accessories for, well, anything. Here are three tricks you might not have thought for using your scarves to their fullest potential.
