FBOMB Fall/Winter Press Preview

Today was FBOMB’s Fall Winter 2014 Press Preview in Toronto. I was really excited to be able to check out some of the rad brands they represent including Stance socks (that I posted about yesterday here!) and also Native Shoes (the comfiest pair of shoes I own!! You can check out my post here). The lovely crew from Dela Cruz PR and FBOMB Trading welcomed us with yummy snacks, drinks and gave us a great tour around their different brands.

 Not only was I happy to check out the new lines from some of the brands I already love but I was also really excited to make some new discoveries. One of the things I was most excited about was all the L*Space swimwear on display. It’s really hard for me to find a fashionable yet “functional” bathing suit for surfing and at the press preview tonight, I found just the suit. I absolutely love their new line because you can mix and match all of their pieces, they have great colors and also some “sportier” looks that can be worn when doing more than just taking a dip in the pool or a hot tub! I can totally see myself wearing some of these while surfing this summer!!

I was super curious to see what was new in the world of Etnies and I was happy to see they’ve really updated the brand and now have some more “fitness” style shoes. Loved the different fabrics and colors! I remember owning a pair of Etnies in high school, trying to fit in with all the skater kids… Happy to see the brand has modernized and is still making cool shoes!

Being a big music lover, I was also excited to see Marshall and Urbanears Headphones being represented. I find it hard to find a good pair of headphones that are good for travel, that don’t hurt your ears after listening to music all day and that are also stylish. But I think I found what I was looking for tonight!

Finally, a great line of eyewear from KOMONO were also on display. Love all the different styles, mirrored lenses, and colors! What’s great is that they are all around the $70 price point! Wohoo!

A personal favorite of the press preview – they were serving a cheese platter from The Cheese Boutique! I couldn’t resist!

We Go Hard #DailyOutfit

Thrilled to be representing the rad Brooklyn artist Santigold and her brand new line of socks today. The BK DIY artist has teamed up with Instance Socks (known as Stance in the US) to create these unique, colorful and badass socks that pay homage to her city. I particularly like my pair of “Brooklyn Go Hard” socks, with the the rad print and red, blue and white colors. Instance is a San Clemente based brand, one of my favorite surf towns in Southern California. I’ve been a fan of Santigold‘s music and spirit since she appeared onto the music scene several years ago.

I’m representing Toronto today, a city that inspires me to go hard every day! What inspires you to go hard every day? The people you surround yourself with? Your neighborhood? Let me know! #SantiWeGoHard You can check out my favorite Santigold track here.
