Hey, gidday mates. I’m writing this while sitting on a cushion in the communal dining room at Maderas Village in Nicaragua, and I’m in a lot of pain. Two nights ago I went horse riding with my friends, and Tom Bull and I decided to have a race. When I got back to the hotel, I noticed that my butt was feeling a little worse for wear, so I went to the bathroom, pulled down my pants to take a look, and found that I had given myself genuine second degree burns on both cheeks via that winning combination of leather, denim, and 37 degree heat. Oweewowee. I won the race, though, so it was all worth it. But back to the matter at hand, it’s insanely hot in this country, so white jeans and a patterned short sleeve shirt is about as dressed up as you can get without losing your mind. Perfect for NYC summer, if it ever arrives.Click to Continue!
Anon asks: My boyfriend and I have been together five years. We always have fun together until you throw drinking and beer pong into the mix. If we aren’t on the same team we start this ugly game of competition until one of us gets so pissed off and stops playing the game. I don’t know why things need to be that way over a game. Long story short, last night we crossed a line. It got to the point where we were yelling at the top of our lungs at each other and I started pushing him. How do I avoid/fix this problem?
The obvious way to avoid the problem would be to not drink so heavily and to not play beer pong ever again, but that might not solve the underlying issues. I would imagine that if you’re getting angry with each other when you’re drunk and playing competitive games, you’ve got problems that you’re not addressing when you’re sober. Then, as soon as the alcohol hits your system, your inhibitions drop, and all of a sudden you get to say all the things you’d like to say when you’re sober, but probably never would.Click to Continue!
Hey, gidday mates! Hola! Que tal? I’m coming to you live from Maderas Village in sunny Nicaragua, Central America, where I’m going to be located for the next six days. Operation: Get A Tan is now in session. I’m here with a bunch of my best friends and I will be updating my Instagram with obnoxious regularity so go take a gander if you so desire. This post was clearly not shot in Nicaragua, but in Soho, and features as much tone-on-tone denim as I could fit on my person. More is more, people, more is more.Click to Continue!
Anon asks: My boyfriend of eight months broke up with me a month ago as distance got in the way. Ever since then he texts me most days to let me know that he hopes I have a nice day, and says he wants to catch up and take me for coffee. What’s confusing is that lately I’ve seen that he’s followed heaps of random girls on Instagram and comments on their photos in skimpy underwear etc. He has never done this before. Why might he be doing this? Does he want me back or is he looking for other girls? Help!
Hey, gidday mate. If you’ve broken up with your boyfriend it’s not going to do you or him any good if you’re texting each other every day. If I was you, I’d cut that out immediately. Either stop texting him back or tell him that you guys are broken up and that he needs to respect those boundaries. If you still have feelings for him, an immediate friendship is out of the question.Click to Continue!
Hey, gidday mates! You ever have those weeks where life seems to fly by in a blur? I’m in that zone right now. The entirety of last week was spent assisting the great novelist Alan Kaufman as he organised the benefit for the the victims of the East Village fire — Patti Smith, Dev Hynes, Mothxr and a ton of other local acts performed, and over 50k was donated to the charity GOLES — and this week I’m getting all my loose ends tied up before I fly out to Nicaragua on Sunday for a week at Maderas Village with seven of my best mates. It’ll be my first time ever at a resort, my first time ever on a tropical beach, and possibly my first time ever getting a tan (fingers crossed).Click to Continue!
