TBT; The Calvin Klein Campaigns

Do you remember when Mark Wahlberg was still one of the Funky Bunch and Kate Moss was a dream couple with Johnny Depp? Back in ’92, Calvin Klein boosted their careers in a Herb Ritts campaign where Mark was holding his funky bunch and Kate was wearing nothing buth her Calvins.

22 years later, Mark is one of Hollywood’s best actors, Kate is Queen Mom of supermodels, her half-sis Lottie Moss is the new face of the CK campaign and a Calvin Klein Jeans sweater is on everybody’s wishlist this Fall.

Hello Summer, ByeBye Hipster Beards

men1

This may come as a shock to you, but it’s time to ditch those Viking beards and Magnum moustaches guys. According to the Guardian “hipster” beards are over and I couldn’t agree more. So go to your barber and get a shave, you’re not Roald Dahl’s Mr. Twit. On the fashion part, you can keep your fixed gear bike, your florals, your skinnies, your denim jacket, your Ray Ban, your slimfit shirts and your Vans. And as I love tattoos, inked sleeves are always a good idea.

Intolerant Foodie; Coconut Drinks

Unfortunately coconut water is not the magic elixer for a Giselle body, but it does bring great health benefits and contains no sugar or lactose, which is perfect for us food intolerant foodies. Drink it on hot Summer days, as it keeps the blood sugar, electrolytes, minerals and hydration levels in your body sky high.

To keep the morning-caffeine and evening-alcohol levels just as high, I found two yummy recipes for a coconut coffee shake and coconut mojitos.
Speaking of coconuts, do you have a sunburn after a lazy beach day? Forget expensive aftersun creams and treat your skin to virgin coconut oil to keep it soft and hydrated. Let’s go coconuts this Summer!

Please note that intolerances may vary, always adjust recipes to your personal needs.
