Last month we received our first look at Beyonce’s collaboration with H&M. Today, the Swedish retailer revealed more visuals from their summer ad campaign. Even Lana Del Rey fans who were upset she was replaced with Bey have to admit, the 31-year-old singer is nothing but fierce in these new visuals. There’s nothing to do but “Bow Down.” Side note: I wonder if it was planned that in every picture, one hand had to be over her head. Every shot has her showing her pits ;)

As with the previously released image, Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin snapped Mrs. Carter on location in the Bahamas. Whether reclining on a beach chair or posing against a colorful wall, she’s modeling from head to toe. Tyra Banks would be so proud. Check out more pics below.

Just when I thought Gregg Homme’s marketing couldn’t get any hotter, they hire Philip Fusco to front their new ad campaign. The fitness model is too much sexy for one man to have. Life’s just not fair ;)

The underwear brand just unveiled a new video featuring Fusco promoting their new Target collection. It shows Fusco coming home at 4am to his gorgeous apartment. Thinking he’s all settled in for the night, he makes himself a cocktail and undresses to just his Gregg Homme brief. All of a sudden he gets a call from an unknown caller (dirty, dirty, dirty boy). We all know what this means… booty call. Fusco then rushes to get the apartment and himself all tidied up for his one night stand. Check out the clip below.

“Who Gregg Homme is, is left up to the imagination. He is filled with mystery, desire and an exuberant amount of seduction. He exists to trick you, tease you and bring out your innermost fantasies. This creates an intoxicating hunger leaving our customers craving more.“ – Eric Boisvert (Owner & Head Designer)

A shirtless lifeguard, an adorable puppy and tequila… sounds like the perfect recipe for a fantastic commercial. In the past, Sauza Tequila has graciously given us tasty drink recipes to share with you. This time around, they’ve provided us with something even tastier to sink our teeth into.

Meet the Sauza Lifeguard, played by the deliciously hot male model, Anderson Davis. This buff lifeguard isn’t just about water safety. He’s all about making one mean margarita. “My favorite S.O.S? You and me, Sipping Our Sauza-ritas,” says Davis. Watch him spread sunblock on his chiseled body, make a Frozen Cherry Lime Sauza®-rita and get wet in Sauza Tequila’s new commercial, “Make it With A Lifeguard.”

A couple weeks ago, I met the awesome guys behind Vanwolff swim and underwear (Marc & Andrew) when they were here in Vancouver visiting. Then last weekend, I spent some time with them at White Party in Palms Springs and they were gracious enough to give me a pair of swim briefs from their “Prey” collection and I simply love them!

Vanwolff has been around less than a year and have already received a lot of press for their high quality swimwear and unique designs. Their premium “Prey” line includes fourteen unique aquatic animal designs that are engineered and embedded into the fabric. They also have a more basic “Essentials” line that features four vibrant colors using the same innovative style. The swimwear is available in briefs and trunks.

One of the things I love about their designs is all of the detail that goes into it. Every garment features Vanwolff’s signature “woven-in-cording,” meaning each suit comes adorned with an original clever quote (i.e. “I Promise To Behave This Summer,” “Looking for Trouble,” etc.) expertly woven into the drawstring cording. Love that idea – definitely a great way to get a conversation going ;)

Our post featuring St. Patrick’s Day drink recipes proved so popular, I thought I’d share some more. If you pay attention to your caloric intake, then these cocktails are up your alley. Praised for having approximately 1/3 fewer calories than other vodkas, Voli Light Vodkas proves you can still make healthy decisions when having a cocktail. Remember the more calories and sugar you consume, the more you’ll be hung over the next day! Can I get an “amen”? Plus, if it’s good enough for Fergie and Pitbull– two of the brand’s celebrity endorsers- it’s good enough for me. As always, drink responsibly.

  • 1 ½ oz Voli Lemon
  • ¾ oz Apple Pucker
  • 2 fresh lemon squeezes
  • Top with soda

Glass: Martini

Okay, This Is Nifty: 3D Pen

In: Charge It, Matt, Random Reads

There’s been some recent innovation in printers and some prototype 3D printers have come out, nothing over impressive and most take forever to create anything worth mentioning, but this… this is cool.

Currently a Kickstarter project, the 3Doodler is a pen that extrudes plastic that instantly hardens, creating a 3d sculpture of whatever you draw. You can draw on a surface and peel off a 2D object of literally draw in the air. Even though they’ve already reached way more than their goal, you can still preorder one pen with a bag of plastic for 75 bucks.

If anyone is wondering what to get me for St. Patrick’s Day, I would like a 3Doodler. In return I promise to draw you something really inappropriate and naturally 3 dimensional as a symbol of my gratitude. In all seriousness though, I’ll probably be buying one of these. Just to whip out and show people how I can sign cheques in 3D. Watch the video about the pen below.

Happy National Margarita Day

In: Charge It, Donovan

If it’s before noon and you’re craving a margarita today, clearly your body knows it’s National Margarita Day. Who knew there was a day specifically dedicated to celebrating the Mexican cocktail. I certainly didn’t. You’d think it would be closer to Cinco do Mayo than some random day in February. Oh well, at least there’s a good excuse to enjoy the cocktail without looking like an alcoholic.

Since our drink recipes posts do well, I reached out to our friends over at Sauza Tequila for some tasty cocktail suggestions. After all, the company is located in Tequila, a municipality of the state of Jalisco, Mexico. Who better to ask? Check out a few of them below.

SAUZA®-RITA

  • 1 can Sauza® Blue Silver 100% Agave Tequila
  • 1 can Frozen Limeade
  • 1 can Water
  • 1 bottle Light Beer

Directions
Pour limeade and beer into a pitcher with ice. Fill limeade can with Sauza® Blue Silver and pour into pitcher. Finally, add a can of water, stir and enjoy. (Serves 9)
