"On the Go" Essentials

I've come to realize that I have a traveler's spirit.  Whether the destination is right around the corner, in my own mind or a trip to visit family in San Francisco, I've learned that there are things that I must have with me or I would feel incomplete.  I'm always on the go from Downtown coffee shops to local art shows and book stores.  You know how you can tell a lot about a woman by what's in her purse?  Well, you can tell a lot about a man by what's in his bag. Skreetstyle and life has been an adventure so far,  let's take a look at what's inside my bag.

My 5 Favorite Pieces

Rosin Rucksack Backpack 

I bought a new backpack this summer because my Herschel bag was falling a part!  The functionality of my last bag was on point though so my new one had some big shoes to fill.  The Teal Rosin Rucksack Backpack has just enough pockets to bring what you REALLY need.  The drawstring and Double buckle clip closure has a traveler aesthetic that fits me as a person.

The Tao of Wu by The RZA

I've always been fascinated with the Wu-Tang Clan and the RZA.  As a kid, I remember playing their fighting game on the Playstation which ignited my interest in their music.  This book is about the "founder of the Wu-Tang Clan and hip-hop's most exalted wise man, imparts the lessons he's learned on his way from the Staten Island projects to international superstardom.  An inspiring spiritual memoir as the world has never seen before--and will never see again-- The Tao of Wu is a surprising, brilliant blend of Eastern spirituality, pop culture reverence, and hard-earned street knowledge, all delivered in RZA's unmistakable voice."  I just started this book but I'm already enjoying the rawness and intelligence of the RZA's writing.

The Notebooks by Jean-Michel Basquiat

This book is inspiring.  It also reminds me of my trip to San Francisco when my brother and I went to the De Young Art Museum where I found this book.

"Brooklyn-born Jean-Michel Basquiat (1960-88) was one of the most important artists of the 1980s. A key figure in the New York art scene, he inventively explored the interplay between words and images throughout his career, first as a member of SAMO, a graffiti group active on the Lower East Side in the late 1970s, and then as a painter acclaimed for his unmistakable Neoexpressionist style. From 1980 to 1987, he filled numerous working notebooks with drawings and handwritten texts. This facsimile edition reproduces the pages of eight of these fascinating and rarely seen notebooks for the first time."

Clear Eyes Maximum Redness Relief

...because clear eyes.

Starbucks Coffee Mug

I used to be such a crack addict for Starbucks Coffee.  The Venti iced upside down Caramel Macchiato with extra caramel was my daily poison.  Now a days I've been using this mug more for home brewed green tea.
