GIORGIO ARMANI – FILMS OF CITY FRAMES

Anson Low No Comments

armani1

Giorgio Armani  and BFI London Film Festival has gathered 4 talented schools and produced 4 inspiring short films. It was my honour to attend the Films of City Frames global premiere which took place in BFI Southbank with special Ambassador, Dame Helen Mirren and followed by a panel discussion moderated by esteemed journalist Tim Blanks. I was very impressed by students as the standard of the films was as good as professional filmmakers in my opinion. The films have presented laughter, motivation, inspiration and love.

#SEDUCETHERAIN WITH SWIMS

This Autumn I will be seducing the rain with Swims outfit – Fairbanks Parka, Barry Workboot, and the Welded Backpack.

swimsautumn4

Fairbanks Parka is the ‘all in one’ coat for the Autumn/Winter. It is waterproof, windproof, well it’s basically Autumn/Winter-proof for me. The parka has many compartments and therefore it is perfect for outdoor activities such as hiking, fishing, camping, etc. I also think that it is an excellent daily coat for a city gentleman, especially with the weather we get in UK. There’s real lambsfur inside the fully adjustable tube hood that keeps your neck warm and comfortable.

The brand new series of bags and backpacks from Swims combines the advanced fully waterproof welding technique with an easier leisure look than usually associated with these kinds. Now you can leave your bag anywhere wet and do not fear for your contents, or bring ice cubes and refreshments perfectly contained to the nearest retreat. Safe travels!

swimsautumn5 swimsautumnboots

The exterior of Barry Workboot is made of water-proof treated nubuck leather and water-proof mesh. The inner side of the boot is made of soft and moist-absorbing lycra lining. They are super comfortable and stylish at the same time.

THE VISIONIST X FITBIT

Anson Low No Comments

Fitbit designs products and experiences that fit seamlessly into your life so you can achieve your health and fitness goals. After wearing my smart design Fitbit Flex for a week, I can officially say that I am 60% fitter already, or I am 60% more active than before to say to least.

fitbit1

The biggest improvement of my fitness routine is my cardio workout. Truthfully, I have never been a big fan of cardio exercises because I struggle easily with my breathing. I tend to skip it even though I am fully aware of the importance of it to stay healthy. While maintaining my weight training exercises, I managed to force myself to walk more throughout the day as well as hitting treadmill on alternate days.

During the working hours, I sit in front of my computer most of the time. With Fitbit Flex, I get to track my daily steps goal with ease. Fitbit Flex is directly in sync with my phone and it tracks every step that I take. It has five lights that indicates the progress towards your daily target. Double tapping on the wristband will show you the percent daily achievement of your steps goal. Easy huh! fitbitflexlight

Personally, I neglect things that I need to do due to my own laziness. Health is one of my biggest negligence this year as I have been very busy with work, new ventures and my blog. I even rely on my phone to remind me to drink more water! Hence, Fitbit Flex has definitely helped me in fitness side of my lifestyle. Yes, I will have to spend more time to push myself becoming active physically but this has also helped in keeping my mind sharp and fresh. It can also track your sleep activity, however I am not using it currently because I don’t feel like I have the need for it. You will be able to see all the information with Fitbit app.

lush1insta

LUSH fresh handmade cosmetic products are: 100% Vegetarian, 83% Vegan, 60% Unpreserved and 38% Naked (No Packaging Required), and most importantly they DO NOT TEST ON ANIMALS! They believe in making products from fresh organic fruit and vegetables, the finest essential oils and safe synthetics. They also believe in buying ingredients only from companies that do not commission test on animals and in testing products on humans.

lushdirty

Dirty Body Spray is a light spray fragranced with spearmint, sandalwood and herbal essential oils that can be used all over the body and topped up during the day.

Review: I literally fell in love with this body spray. I have never used any body spray before, the fragrances that I used are not applied directly on my skin normally as I don’t fancy having too much of chemical on my skin. Therefore, this natural body spray has been my daily enlightenment since I got it. I would have a few sprays on my body after freshen up and it makes my body feel clean and fresh! It’s 5 out of 5 stars for me!

lushmaskofmagnamint

Mask of Magnaminty is a multi-purpose face and body mask with a mixture of gentle yet effective ingredients to clean, calm and clear the skin.  It contains mineral rich kaolin to nourish, antibacterial honey, and peppermint oil to stimulate the blood cells just under the surface of your skin to leave it looking bright and refreshed.

Review: I have used this mask twice a week in the past 4 weeks. I love it! The minty scent is great, and my skin always felt clean and tight after the regime. I have acne prone skin and due to that I am sensitive with facial products in general. This mask has improved my skin condition without a doubt. It reduced the swelling and redness of acne the next day after the treatment. For anyone who suffers from breakouts, I would definitely recommend this mask! 5 out of 5 stars for this too!

lushteatreewater

Tea tree oil is made up of around 100 substances, including terpenes, mostly considered to be responsible for tea tree oil’s reputation as a remedy. The oil has been scientifically proven to be antibacterial, antifungal and particularly effective against the types of fungi we call yeasts. They make tea tree water by dispersing tea tree oil in water and use it for its clarifying action.

Review: I have been using several types of toners and this is one of my favourite. It has also helped in reducing the swelling of my acne. I haven’t got any side effect from using it so I assume it does its job pretty well. My skin does feel a bit stinging every time I use it, which is the only thing that I dislike. I will give it 4 out of 5 stars.

lushangelsonbareskin

Angels on Bare Skin cleanser comes in a solid form and as you mix the solid cleanser with water to form a paste, the ground almonds create almond milk which helps to tone and brighten the skin. It can be used on both the face and body.

Review: Unfortunately this isn’t my favourite cleanser due to my personal preference. There’s nothing bad about it. This cleanser will leave your skin feeling moist after cleansing, which is not something that I like. I love my skin to feel dry and super clean after using a cleanser. And also this cleanser has some ground almonds that act like a scrub which I do not like too. I don’t mind to scrub my face occasionally but not for my daily routine. Due to my own preference, I would rate it 3 out of 5 stars.

 lushskindrink

Skin Drink is packed with nourishing oils and butters, avocados, aloe vera and a light rose and orange neroli fragrance. Forming a light barrier against the elements, this is ideal for all weathers and is especially good for soothing the skin and helping it feel more supple.

Review: This is similar to the Angel on bare skin cleanser that I tried, which is also not my top choice in my skin care routine. This is simply because it is not oil free. I like my skin to feel dry even after applying the moisturiser, with smooth and matte finish. This moisturiser is basically the contrary of my requirements. However, it did leave my skin moist and smooth after the application. I would still rate it 3 out of 5 stars.

THE VISIONIST X SWIMS

Anson Low No Comments

Last year in the Summer, I found out the brand Swims from Mr Porter site. It was like love at first sight, as I have been searching for a perfect pair of stylish, comfortable and water resistant slip-on/loafers for a long time! I am not a fan of the C***S brand sandals as I find their design is rather hideous, although they may be comfortable. Therefore, I got a pair of Swims last summer, and I fell in love since! This Summer, I am lucky enough to collaborate with Swims so that I get to show you all more styles and designs.

I have been wearing these Swims Lace loafers almost everyday for my casual day out. They are so easy to slip on and off! And they are amazingly comfortable too. Who says stylish shoes can’t be comfortable?

swims1

This pair of classic loafer has multiple ventilation gills ensuring great comfort and breathability. They are perfect for boating but for me personally, they can go with any outfit as long as you are not wearing them with full suit!

swims8

I am also loving their Gavitella Shorts. The design is colourful and neat.  The fabrics are high quality and very comfortable – all of their products are so comfortable indeed! And the shorts also come with draining pockets.

swims7

The Sport Loafer is a breathable boat loafer with a flexible rubber outsole. It is inspired by the classic boat shoe, but with the flexible outer shell. These come in all kinds of colour combination and it is so much fun!

swims2

The colours of this pair of Sport Loafer are so flamboyant and I just can’t get enough of them. I have been wearing them quite frequently in past two weeks and strangers approached me just to ask for the brand!

HEAD TO TOE: Swims Citara T-Shirt Cobalt, Swims Gavitella Shorts Navy, Swims Sport Loafer Navy/Blue, Daniel Wellington Watch, Paul Hewitt Anchor Bracelet, Rayban Sunglasses.

#HowDoYouJacobHolston Vol.2

Anson Low No Comments

This is my second chapter of the Jacob Holston Spring Summer 2015 collection for #HowDoYouJacobHolston. Here I am featuring Adriano Bomber Jacket in navy blue with Timo Button Cuffed Crew T-Shirt in army green.

jacobholston

I love the details of the Adriano Bomber Jacket so much. The jacket is very lightweight and the zippers are edgy. The floral print lining of the jacket also gives it a nice touch.

jacobholston4

To complete the look, I styled it with the uber-cool Luigi Drawstring Jogger Bottom in solid black. It’s edgy and I also love the diversity of it. And it is super comfortable!
