MY BALI RETREAT AT THE SANTAI BY LIFESTYLERETREATS

Anson Low one comments

The Santai is an exclusive retreat by Lifestyleretreat, nestled in a quiet neighbourhood close to picturesque rice fields and local village temples but also just a short 15-minute drive from the shops, restaurants and buzzing nightlife of Seminyak.

villaoutdoor2I was super impressed when I arrived at The Santai due to the architecture of the entire place. It seemed like every piece of furniture or building material has been carefully selected in order to give the guests a peaceful and unique Balinese experience. We were greeted by the friendly staff upon arrival and we were served with some delicious light bites too, which I thought was a nice touch to welcome us to the villa.

pool1instaI have been dying for this retreat since like forever due to my hectic lifestyle. I woke up every morning with my very own pool view plus the breakfast choice of my own! My favourite was the Japanese bento box! 🙂 Yes, the staff would bring in the food to you anytime you want, I felt so pampered!

thesantai6aThis retreat trip at The Santai has given me a chance to calm my soul and relax my mind. I didn’t check my business/work emails for my entire stay and I finally got the time to appreciate my beautiful surroundings. I got to do some yoga in the morning by the pool surrounded by tropical greenery. And I enjoyed some in-villa massages too! Totally the life I dreamt for.

 


 

The pool at The Santai is massive. I enjoyed the pool so much with my holiday squad as you can see! After some pool times, I always go for a quick shower outdoor in my master bedroom after my swim or sunbathing.

A very cool feature in my opinion as I would brush my teeth in the morning and go straight into the pool for a quick swim before my breakfast.

thesantai7There are plenty of beautiful spots within the villa itself that you can explore and enjoy. This pool villa is perfect for family and friends where you can spend some precious time together and relax at the same time. Or you can also have the entire villa all by yourself! Why not hey!

Anson Low No Comments

Braun seamlessly combines design and fusion for products that are intuitive and satisfying to use. The new Braun Beard, Hair and Body Styling Range allows unparalleled styling possibilities for precision styling from head to toe.

As a fashionista and a gentleman myself, I pay a lot of attention to the design of all the products that I use. The design is equally as important as the function in my perspective. The new range from Braun has definitely achieved it with its versatile function and the masculine aesthetic.

HOW TO STEAM WITH THE STEAMERY?

Anson Low No Comments

Let me introduce you the Travel Steamer Cirrus by The Steamery! Portable, easy to use, and most importantly – it is effective!

I hate ironing my clothes ever since I remember. I hate the hassle of getting out the ironing board, get out the heavy iron from my cupboard, arrange my clothes on the ironing board to make sure it’s flat and ready, the entire process seems to be so long-winded. Finally I was introduced to this Tarvel Steamer Cirrus by The Steamery, I considered myself very lucky! This is one of the best product I’ve ever came across with. It actually does make me feel that this chore is much easier now.

The fact that it is portable and I can take it with me for a business trip/weekend getaway, it is just a perfect way to keep my clothes wrinkles free wherever I go! It starts up in 20-25 seconds. High temperature, pressurized steam delivered on the press of a button. 6 min of on demand steam per refill. And it also comes with a travel pouch that can be used as the ‘ironing board’! I just love it so much!

If you are worried about sensitive fabrics as light silk, fine fibre blends and wool, you can clip on the included fabric brush. That gives you a little extra space between the steamer and the fabric and its also good for removing hair, dust and minor stains.

WHAT IS MYFLAVOUR?

Anson Low No Comments

MyFlavour water carafe from Eva Solo boasts a removable skewer in the lid, which means that all kinds of aromas can easily, and also for decorative effect, be added to the water we serve – and it is just as easy to remove the fruit and greenery from the carafe again.

The skewer in the MyFlavour carafe is detachable, and the carafe can also be used without its lid; however, it is a good idea to keep the lid on when the carafe is stored in the fridge so that the water does not absorb unwanted flavours.

MULBERRY – MARTY

Anson Low No Comments

Marty, oh Marty. This is definitely one of my favourite bag ever! I’ve been a fan of Mulberry for years now (since I got the Piccadilly travel bag). I always wanted a versatile backpack that is smart enough for both casual and formal occasion. Hence, I found this gorgeous Mulberry Small Marty. It has a clean and structured look that for me personally, great for dressed up as well as street style.

GALET: THE FRENCH LOAFER

Anson Low No Comments

Galet is an unmistakably classic and playful French luxury brand that designs handmade loafers for men. Galet has woven these two philosophies together to create an original and iconic shoe. Galet loafers are made in an atelier outside Paris, France and our craftsmen use traditional and time-honoured techniques. The shoes feature flexible rubber soles and are available in a variety of materials, including canvas, leather, suede and pony hair.

#GALEYMYWAY

maisonglet4full

These brown cow loafers from GALET are the part of the cowboy collection. These calf hair loafers are chic and durable alternative to the traditional leather loafer. They may be wild but you can always tone down the look by matching them with a smart and minimal outfit.

maisongalet5

maisongalet7

My key to this look is keeping the outfit with the same colour tone. Blue is my favourite colour and I always think that it matches well with tan/brown. Instead of overshadowing the brown cow loafers, I chose to keep my garments as clean as possible in order to allow my brown cows to shine!

maisongalet3

HEAD TO TOE: Topman Navy Jersey Duster Coat, Topman Chinos, Topman Navy Turtle Neck Jumper, Galet Loafers.

maisongalet6

Galet shoes are handmade in France with the highest quality materials and a Blake-stitched rubber sole, creating a structured loafer that offers supreme comfort and flexibility. Without a doubt, they are super comfy and you will know what I mean once you tried them! Thumbs up for making luxury shoes comfortable!

maisongalet9

These loafers are easy to clean and only require being wiped along the grain with a lukewarm cloth. For best results, treat Galet shoes with water repellent spray regularly. Always care for your shoes! Check out Galet website for more french loafers and use promo code “thevisionist” for 15% off!

TOUCHES OF B&O PLAY H7 – THE PREMIUM WIRELESS HEADPHONES

Anson Low one comments

As you all may have known or for those who didn’t, I am like the biggest fan of B&O products, with two great reasons – designs and sounds. The sophisticated design and amazing sound of these headphones give me goosebumps!

beoplayh7f

No matter if BeoPlay H7 is placed on your head or around your neck, it will feel as good as it looks. They must be the most comfortable premium headphones I’ve ever owned. And this time B&O Play brings you the Bang & Olufsen signature sound WITHOUT THE CORD! YES, THEY ARE NOW WIRELESS!

beoplayh7c beoplayh7e

The coolest new feature of these wireless headphones is the magic touches for me. Even the slightest touch puts you in full control of BeoPlay H7. You can use the touch interface to answer a call, change song or adjust the volume! The touch interface even works if you are wearing gloves, like seriously?!

Not only that, BeoPlay H7 features advanced battery technology with up to 20 hours of wireless playtime. The battery can be swapped in a snap or charged via USB. If the headphone runs out of power and you still want to use them, simply plug in the cord to keep enjoying your music. 🙂

beoplayh7d

Overall, BeoPlay H7 is just highly recommended. The sound clarity is superb, the bass response is not too heavy and therefore you can hear all instruments and vocals clearly. Try it out from their stores and you will experience the luxurious sounds!
