Introducing Guinness Blonde Lager: Discover Series

Guinness invited #BallerStatus to be among the first to try their newest offering earlier this month, Guinness Blonde Lager, the first of a set of beers from Diageo called the “Discovery Series.” During a private dinner, I was able to try the new light-colored beer and learn more about it’s new concept. — a crisp, light and flavorful beer brewed in Guinness’ famous tradition with carefully selected Mosaic and Willamette American hops.

Flying High in Trapeze School with Dove Men+Care

Last week, Dove Men+Care invited us up to NYC for a fun and unique class at The Trapeze School of New York, where we did some flying trapeze and trampoline instruction.

The event was setup to help bring to life their #FaceTorture campaign, which highlight’s Dove Men+Care’s Face Wash, since a gentle cleanser is a must after working up a sweat.

It was a really exhilarating experience, and one that I’d recommend to anyone looking for an adrenaline rush!
