VILLINO FLORIO

VILLINO FLORIO “Beneath the shadow of Villino Florio sprout colors in opaque, sophisticated shades. These are the precious hues od the noble gardens of Palermo, which, combined with the sinuous grace of Liberty style create enchanting blossoms and bring exclusive garments to life. The sparkling avant-garde atmosphere of the Sicilian Belle Epoque thus lives on in the refined elegance of the floral prints, whose soft arboreal lines evoke the splendor and charm of the Art Nouveau period and the great industrialist families of Palermo.” It was love at first sight when I saw this botanical print, it is very masculine, I saw these two pieces and could not help myself and I had to try them on. I think you saw my snaps and insta-stories about my trip to the store located at the Renaissance mall in the beautiful Aruba. I went for a beach stroll and did some amazing pictures. I accessorized the look with a few gold rose bracelets and black Dolce Gabbana sunnies. Jacket, shorts and sunnies by Dolce Gabbana, bracelets by …

VAMONOS | EAST DANE

A few months ago I bought this beautiful Michael Kors back on EAST DANE, I felt it deserved a proper feature. When I bought it I was looking for a full leather bag, I like nylon bags or those made of canvas, but there’s nothing like the smell of leather. If I were you I will suggest you do the same, get a full leather backpack if you don’t have one and then maybe you can get another in a different fabric and style. EAST DANE has a large variety of bags on their website, some are on SALE, some are from the newest collection. Click here and take your time browsing for the perfect backpack. These three backpacks are among my favorites on their website, click on the picture for more details. URI MINKOFF A slouchy Uri Minkoff backpack in sophisticated pebbled leather.

FIRST INSTINCT GIVEWAY | PENHA & ABERCROMBIE&FITCH FOR MEN

So… Penha and I have decided to partner to give away the newest fragrance from Abercrombie & Fitch, this brand new perfume was designed by Phillippe Romano; he said: “I wanted to create a modern fragrance that balances both the fresh elements of fougère with oriental warmth. All the notes together, create a scent with worldwide appeal for the Abercrombie & Fitch man and beyond.” First Instinct, an oriental fougère, is intended for “the confident man who is not afraid to express his feelings.” The top notes include an aromatic gin & tonic accord combined with Kiwano melon, so it makes it perfect for a night out in my opinion but I used it in the mornings also. If you have been following me on snapchat, you have seen me spray it after the gym. Middle notes offer spicy Szechuan pepper, airy violet leaves and tangy citrusand.These ingridients will get the attention from everybody. Now, the basenotes are comprised of sueded musk with raw amber. The beautiful bottle has the appearance of undulating water. The silver …

BEARD OIL | KIEHL’S

If I had a penny for every time my friends or strangers ask me what I do to groom my beard… I always recommend beard oil, is the best and the only thing you need. Finally a well-known brand like Kiehl’s put on the market a beard oil. I tried it for a couple of weeks, I used 3 times a week, sometimes more, depending how many times I go to the beach. It is very lightweight which is important, you don’t wanna feel oily, it softens the facial hair to keep it looking nice and groomed. It is very important to use beard oil also to help the skin, some of the itchiness, when you are starting to grow your beard, is because it gets dry. Kiehl’s oil has an earthy blend of fresh Sandalwood, Cedarwood, and Eucalyptus essential oils. The Pradaxa oil softens and smooths coarse facial hair and nourishes the skin underneath while gentle exfoliating actives smooth dry, itchy skin.Blend of Cedarwood, Sandalwood, and Eucalyptus essential oils provides a fresh, earthy aromatic experience. …

So in my quest for the perfect Island perfume I stumbled upon Creed a few years ago, I met Virgin Island Water which is one of my signature scents. Since that day Creed has become one of my favorites brands not only for the exclusivity but the quality and trajectory , they have over 250 years designing perfumes for royalty in Europe. Penha in Aruba is carrying Creed and I didn’t know, what a surprise!
