How to Apply Beard Oil – For Beginners

Still in 2020 not all men feel comfortable to talk about grooming regimes and even worse they don’t know what products are available to them or how to use them. I spent years selling mens grooming products and one particular question kept cropping up…  “How exactly do you use beard oil?”

I understand not all men are as confident as others when it comes to buying new grooming products, more often than not its due to a misunderstanding and overcomplicated directions for use, so here is my simple step-by-step guide to help you understand how to apply beard oil.

At Home With Burton Menswear | Fashion

Ok, we’re all at home right now trying to think of things to do to keep ourselves occupied and fill a day’s schedule. If you’re anything like me you’ll probably have been doing that in pyjamas, gym clothes or loungewear. Now, there’s absolutely nothing wrong with that and lets be fair, this is the time for us to relax and not take the days for granted, but have you found yourself leaning towards online shopping… and updating an already full wardrobe? I bet you have!

We might not be able to wear new clothes anywhere nice (for now) but we can at least try to look good sometimes at home too. You might have a zoom call with your friends & family and want to look the part, or you might just want to buy new clothes and dress up for the sake of your sanity and why not? if it makes you feel good, do it!

Well I was kindly asked to try some of Burton Menswear superb spring/summer collection and I’d like to talk you through a couple of smart-casual summer looks I put together and then put on hold for the day’s we can socialise on city rooftops with a DJ, sunshine, friends and a glass (or two) of Aperol!! – So here goes;

Burton Menswear 1904 Collection
Burton Menswear 1904 Collection

How else can I put this? – Burton Menswear have created possibly one of the most stunning ranges, the 1904 Collection. This collection is made up of classic styled three-piece suits, Sharp blazers, prints, chinos and T-shirts. They are an invention of modern favourites but with eye catching attention to detail which is sure to turn heads this season. The quality is incredible and the fit superb. In my opinion the style and classic look to some of the pieces rival a collection from Reiss, but without the hefty price tag.

Don’t believe me? – Then just look at this absolutely drop dead blumming amazing three-piece Suit that I was kindly given.

It doesn’t matter the season when you’re wearing stripes. Whatever the weather, wherever your location Burton Menswear will have you covered.

I was never the biggest fan of a striped or patterned shirt a year ago… I always thought they were a bit too much, too busy, to much colour, but you know what… that was last year! Now i’m obsessed and have a wardrobe that resembles a painter’s palette.

Rudding Park Luxury Hotel & Spa|Travel|Harrogate

Ok so let me start of by saying I have been lucky enough to visit a number of spas in the last few years. However, i’ve never experienced anywhere quite like this…

Rudding Park Spa soars high above all expectations, so much so that even the 5 star reviews I was reading through before I arrived (I have a habit of doing that) didn’t actually do it justice. This place is a pure delight. In short, it’s gorgeous, the staff are world-class, it’s ridiculously clean and the facilities they have are the best I’ve ever , EVER, experienced!

“It’s easy being a Social Influencer”, ” I could do that”, “Anybody can just take a picture and upload it to instagram”, “Influencers are just freeloaders!”.

Ok, so some of that it true. Yes, you could do it yourself and yes anybody can take a photo and upload it to Instagram. The thing is, that isn’t the point, and it’s not why i’m writing this either. Time and time again I am hearing the same things from people who just don’t understand what it takes to create worthwhile content and the commitment that is needed to become a successful influencer. This isn’t really a how to guide, but it’s something I’d like to discuss honestly delving into some of what goes on behind the camera.
