This weekend will be focused on good clothes, nice art and great skin. I plan to take advantage of my down time by reading books that inspire me. A while back I was given a nice book that displays an incredible collection of art which includes pieces by Gerhard Richter, Cy Twombly and Yves Klein who are amongst my favourite artists. I just received some great pieces from Only & Son’s and I couldn’t be happier with the selection, great denim and cool t-shirts. Lisa Eldridge got me onto the skincare brand Paula’s Choice and I plan to test drive some products from the PC4 men’s range which I will feature in more detail very soon.
Have a great weekend!
The summer is drawing to an end, I can tell because the first few leaves are starting to fall. It’s still pretty hot and I’m making the most of it. Today I’m wearing a simple back t-shirt with rolled up jeans and sandals. I mean, what did we do before we started rolling up the hems of our jeans or chino’s, it seems strange not to now.
My friends at Niche-Men enlightened me on the wondrous elixir that is FOUNTAIN Food Supplements. In a nut shell this is a range of beauty supplements aimed at improving the quality and appearance of our skin. There are ten varieties offering numerous benefits from anti-ageing to elevated happiness or better hair. I’m currently giving the Energy Molecule a whirl which contains Creatine, Vitamin B12 & Hyaluronic Acid. First of all I’m a fan of anything containing Hyaluronic Acid so I was instantly sold on the concept of taking this skin boosting molecule orally. Hyaluronic Acid is a natural structural component of the skin and is known for it’s ability to retain moisture. I can never have enough energy and I appreciate the extra boost. For the last week I have been taking a teaspoon daily, either on it’s own or mixed with a juice or smoothie. The team at Deciem were kind enough to send me a bottle of the Green Molecule which I will feature in more detail later on. You can discover Fountain for yourself at Niche-Men.
I’ve hit the ground running this week so I’m feeling super inspired and energised. Yesterday I traveled to Munich for appointments and today I’m keeping it casual as I will be mostly in front of my computer. Black is the colour of choice!
Shades – Saint Laurent
T-Shirt – UNIQLO
Jeans – The Kooples
Grown Alchemist has been on my radar for a while and after reaching out to them via their website I was lucky enough to receive samples from Niche-Men in Hamburg. There has been much hype around this brand as their packaging is incredibly popular with minimalistic style bloggers and instagrammers. I’ll admit, this is what initially drew me to the brand and I was further intrigued after discovering they formulate using a wealth of natural, plant based ingredients. This got me to second base, all that was left was the performance and overall experience. The samples were sent to me along with some other products from different brands. When I opened the box I immediately smelled something really good but I didn’t know what it was. This turned out to be the Geranium Leaf, Bergamot & Patchouli Body Cleansing Bar. So good. Second up I had the Matte Balancing Moisturiser with Acai-Berry & Borago followed lastly by the Age-Repair Eye Cream with Tetra-Peptide & Centella. I’m so happy with this brand it’s not even funny. Like the packaging, the fragrance of each product is gender neutral, everything smells natural, yet super luxurious. A little goes a long way with these products, a bit more than a pea size is enough to moisturise my entire face. If you haven’t tried this brand then I urge you to visit Niche-Men or Niche-Beauty and get yourself some. It’s so worth it!
