Burroughs Beard Oil

I recently had to change my skincare regimen since I’ve decided not to shave my beard. Most cleansers would dry the skin beneath my beard and moisturizers are to thick to pass my thick scuff, leaving a chalk like residue… not cool!

 So I did some research and came across Burroughs Beard Oil by Prospector Co.  This fast drying, quick absorbing oil blends argan oil – which has been used to improve the skin of Berber people for hundreds of years- with grapseed oil, a natural astringent.  The oils help moisturize surface skin and condition follicles while other ingredients like Cedarwood and Sandlewood make it smell amazing.  Best of all it can be used on your whole face.  Cheers to a shaveless summer!

Hong Kong-based designer René Chu’s sunglass line “Revé by René” is beyond dreamy, it’s magical!  By taking classic silhouettes and giving them a surrealistic vibe, Chu offers playful high-end quality styles for men and women.  I love the exaggerated reflective aviators (I wear them all the time!) but the fantasy styles like “Beautiful Monster” and “Sweet Suck” with removable fangs are to die for!

July 1st was hand over day in Hong Kong, and while tens of thousands of people marched the streets towards Central, I was returning from a much needed 4-day get-away weekend in Phuket, Thailand.

 We arrived on Friday night to the lovely Point Yamu by COMO resort, located in a secluded part of Phuket overlooking the Andaman Sea and the dramatic limestones of Phang Nga Bay.  The next day was hard to leave the hotel, where we enjoyed R&R time by the pool, a little gym time and a COMO Shambhala massage… ah-mazing!  The rest of the weekend was filled with spicy food, endless amounts of alcohol and a day cruise on the June Bahtra where we visited James Bond islands and took a dip in the warm waters of Phang Nga Bay.

 Surprisingly Antoni managed to take a few pictures for OML! Blog.  It was hot during our stay, and not much fashion was worn, so make sure to come back next week for Swim Suit Week!

 Tattooed British model Stephen James is at the center of photographer Juanjo Molina and stylist Abraham Gutierrez’s new editorial for Spanish magazine Nox.

The “Men vs Machine” themed shoot features fashions by my favorite designers from Givenchy, Calvin Klein, Prada and Dsquared2.  Although most photographers prefer to shoot Stephen semi-nude, I think the styling accentuates his bold tatts… very nice!
