It was engineered to be an effective alternative to coffee and other stimulants by boosting focus.

Living It Up

everyday carry items for living it up

Here we see the Ledlenser MT18 ‘Brighter Than A Car Headlight’ Flashlight. This incredibly powerful flashlight weighs only 21.9 oz (620 grams) and measures 6.74-inches which means you can easily tuck it into your backpack or center console. This flashlight pumps out 3,000 lumens and stretches nearly 1,800 feet. If you want to treat yourself to something spectacular this flashlight isn’t cheap ($199) but you’ll be buying one of the best EDC products on the planet.

And we’ve got the Ledlenser Flex7 Powerbank ($79), a tool you should quite literally never leave home without. This genius little device is protected by water-resistant housing and packs six functions: powerbank, battery charger with charge level indicator, secure battery storage, display for capacity check, double protection against short circuits, and fast battery replacement. It boasts up to 30% faster charging time which is EXACTLY what you need on the go!

Costa ‘Ferg’ Sunglasses

Costa del Mar Ferg Sunglasses


It’s that time of year when I start thinking about picking up new shades. The change of seasons brings a change in the type of fishing and other outdoor adventures I’m getting into.

The all-new Ferg Polarized Sunglasses from Costa comes in an array of frames and lens options to fit your needs. The ‘Ferg’ is named for Ray Ferguson who founded Costa Sunglasses with incredibly high standards and this new model is meant to embody that bar he set for the company.


First Light Dark Roast Coffee Whiskey

First Light Coffee Whiskey


This is a spirit that blends two of my favorite flavors in harmony, Coffee and Whiskey. The First Light Dark Roast Coffee Whiskey carries subtle notes of caramel and chocolate with a smooth mouthfeel that coats your palate without overpowering itself. It received the ‘Innovation Award’ and a ‘Platinum Award’ at the 2020 Sip Awards so it’s already turning heads.

This is a perfect whiskey for winding down after dinner. It retails for an affordable $27.99 on SipWhiskey and you can learn more about this whiskey over on their website if you’re curious.

tempo hungover af review


Here we have one of the most exciting products to hit the market this Summer, something I’m extremely blown away by. The Tempo ‘Hungover AF’ Natural Hangover Remedy is the #1 hangover cure product available, hands down.

You just pop three capsules before bed and the Tempo ‘Hungover AF’ Natural Hangover Remedy goes to work with a blend of herbs, vitamins, electrolytes, and minerals to have you feeling like new when you wake up. If you’ve suffered any extreme hangovers at any point in your life then this one’s for you. Trust it!


Little Book Chapter 4: ‘Lessons Honored’

Little Book Chapter 4 Lessons Honored


Eighth generation Beam distiller Freddie Noe just debuted the fourth installment of his Little Book limited series of blends and I could not be more excited for this one. This isn’t the slightest bit of hyperbole when I say the previous three chapters/releases have ranked in my top 10 all-time favorite whiskey releases which gives me complete confidence that Chapter 4: Lessons Honored will be equally as divine.

‘Lessons Honored’ is a blend of three whiskeys: (1) 4-year-old Kentucky Straight Brown Rice Bourbon, (2) 8-year-old Kentucky Straight “high rye” Rye Whiskey, and (3) 7-year-old Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey and it’s bottled at 122.8-proof. It can be sipped neat if you’ve got the constitution for that strength or you can drink it over a large ice ball or with some water dropped in. It’s available nationwide starting now with a suggested retail price of $124.99 but this one will sell out fast!

Little Book ‘Chapter 4: Lessons Honored’ is Freddie’s ode to his father, 7th Generation Beam Master Distiller Fred Noe, and all of the lessons about life and bourbon his dad passed down to him, lessons he hopes to pass down to his children one day. I’ll be sampling this at some point in the very near future and will have more to share with you gentlemen but I wanted to get this news on your radar so you could try and track down a bottle before they’re gone!


Everglades Fishing Co. Apparel

Everglades Fishing Co. Fishing Apparel


Everglades Fishing Co. is based out of Everglades City which sits at the barrier between modern civilization and unbridled wilderness. Fishing in the Florida Everglades is like stepping back in time to an era and land that’s been untouched by humankind. You can target pretty much every fish species under the sun and spend the entire day reeling in fish.

Capt. Jimmy is the owner of Everglades Fishing Co. and I’ve been out fishing with him a few times. I mean this when I say you won’t find a better guide to spend the day with. He also has some of the best fishing apparel in the game right now so I wanted to put together some of my favorites here. You can also click here to check out the charter fishing trip rates.
