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.

Damn do I love Saint Laurent Paris, if you guys need one style icon, Hedi Slimane should be it. Take inspiration from the Fall 14 campaign, shot by Hedi and modeled by White Room lead singer Jake Smallwood and guitarist Jack Dalby and rock those slim suits, oversized coats, biker jackets and James Dean hair.
