THE POWER OF MEDITATION

I’d like to share with you a secret that will bring you peace, focus and stillness. It is something that I try practice daily and when I miss the opportunity to do so, I can feel the difference in my mood and mindset. I’m talking about meditation and while I’m certainly not the first person to preach its benefits, I am a strong believer in its power. Meditation is often mistakenly associated with people on the fringes of society, practiced by men with shaved heads in hemp trousers but the truth is that it’s a secret natural mood enhancer enjoyed by people from all walks of life.

My personal favourite mediation is led by Sri Sri Ravi Shankar, the leader of the Art of Living movement. I came across his teachings through a friend of mine and I can honestly say that his messages and approach to life has changed my understanding of happiness and peace. The below mediation is simple to follow, short in length yet extremely powerful. Try this every morning for a week and enjoy the changes that it will bring to your life.

MODERN GAY STYLE: YVES AND KARL

yves saint laurent karl largerfeld gay

A few years ago I was recommended a book entitled The Beautiful Fall, a true story about the fabulous Parisian fashion world of the 1970’s and two of its most influential characters, Yves Saint Laurent and Karl Lagerfeld. The book is a captivating look into the interwoven lives of Yves and Karl during that time and recounts tales of parties, drugs, sex, exotic travels, infedelities and feuds between the two designers. Yves and Karl shared similar friends and even gay lovers, albeit not willingly, and were surrounded by the most beautiful and famous people in the world. Each designer created his own mesmerizing universe, so vivid and seductive that people were drawn to the power, charisma and fame, but in the end it was to make them bitter rivals. Their stories created a yearning within me for a time gone by when the fashion world was simultaneously bohemian and excessive, where celebrities and fashionistas weren’t overexposed through continuously updated media channels and where careless youthfulness was embraced and exploited. The author of the book, Alicia Drake eloquently takes the reader from Paris to Marrakech, from the beds of Yves and Karl to the restaurants of Saint-Germain-des-Prés, while respectably and affectionately sharing with us the lives of two of the world’s most famous fashion designers.

Now a new biopic called Saint Laurent has been made about Yves’s life during the period of 1967 to 1976 when the designer was at the height of his career. Nominated for the Palme d’Or at Cannes Film Festival and directed by Bertrand Bernello, the film is scheduled for release on May 8th.

MODERN GAY STYLE: MASK IT

Gay Face Mask Montagne Jeunesse

It’s been a manic week. As the year winds down, the party season winds up and all those late nights and boozy parties begin to take their toll. You’re tired and worn down but you keep pushing on, knowing that 2014 has almost come to a close. You tell yourself that if you can just make it through to December 31st then come the new year, you’ll be much kinder to yourself. Perhaps you’ll give up sugar or maybe it’s alcohol that is your vice and you’ll definitely aim to have more than five hours sleep a night. Until the clock strikes 12 in less than two weeks, you have free rein to do as you wish. Drink, eat and be merry but if you’re starting to look a little worse for wear (as I was this morning) then you might want to take a couple of minutes to yourself to indulge in some in-home pampering.

My idea of pampering is running a bath filled with Radox, making myself a soothing green tea, trimming my facial hear and putting on a Montagne Jeunesse face mask. There really is something luxurious about sitting in the bathtub, face masked, sipping tea and reflecting on the week that’s past. Today I used the Dirt and Grime Clean Face Masque that Montagne Jeunesse sent me from their men’s range and then tried the Blackhead Blitzer, which may have made me look like a fabulous Hannibal Lecter but left my face feeling wonderfully rejuvenated. I finished off with the Eye Rescue patches which use mineral rich sea algae to reduce puffiness and at £1.99 a pair are much more affordable than having to travel to a spa at an algae-rich tropical island resort for the same treatment. Thirty minutes later I was out of the bath, body feeling pruney but face as a fresh as an angel, ready to tackle the last days before Christmas and the inevitable food coma that awaits me on the 25th.

MODERN GAY STYLE: TIE ME UP

TED BAKER GAY STYLE TIE

If you instantly want to look like a sophisticated gay man with style and panache then put on a tie. If you instantly want to look like a dishevelled gay man who has no fashion sense then put on a tie wrong. Adorning a tie with a suitable outfit will up your fashion credibility and distinguish you from all those other gay men who still insist on dressing like teenagers. However, for many of us, it’s been years since we last tied a tie and it was most probably for high school or another formal occasion that we were reluctantly forced to attend. Back then the tie felt more like a noose than a fashion accessory, restricting breathing and cutting off circulation to one’s brain by strangling one’s neck like a bower constrictor. Now that you’re a grown man it’s time to learn how to fasten a tie properly.

Although it may seem as if you need an engineering degree to effectively adorn this elongated piece of material, it’s actually a lot simpler than you think. Elegant London establishment, Draycott Hotel has made it easy for you to do so with this 6 step infographic on how to tie a tie. Now there is no excuse for you not to look like a gay gentleman who has stepped out of the Ted Baker Autumn/Winter 2014 catalogue.

MODERN GAY STYLE: UNDERWEAR WITH BALLS

Zayn Campaign 4

They say that you can tell a lot about a guy by the underwear he wears. Well if that’s the case then you want to be a man who wears Zayn. The brainchild of 24 year-old Melburnian Jarryd Haefele, Zayn underwear was launched in August this year to raise awareness of male depression in Australia. A percentage from every sale of underwear is donated to beyondblue, an organisation that works “to reduce the impact of depression and anxiety in the community by raising awareness and understanding, empowering people to seek help, and supporting recovery, management and resilience”.

As a victim of depression for over 6 years, Jarryd uses his underwear line to create a national rsponse to mental health disorders. “Depression and anxiety affects over 3 million Australians every year, many of whom are men,” said Jarryd. “As a sufferer, I wanted to create a product that supported more than just bums and Zayn does that.”

Available in a colourful range of men’s briefs, hipsters and trunks, the Zayn underwear collection is made from cotton and spandex materials and retails from $11.95 AUD (internationally shipping is available).
