Be Smart About Your Watch, Get a Polar M400 at Le Luxury

Currently, smartwatches are all the rage in the technology industry. The release of the Apple Watch earlier this year marked the official beginning of the next frontier in mobile communication. But wait, the bugs and difficulties associated with the Apple Watch are well documented. Although understandable, the hefty price tag in excess of $500 simply is not worth it, so Le Lexury says “Forget about it!” Be smart about your smartwatch and invest in Polar M400.


The Polar M400 model smartwatch is a sleek and versatile device that is perfect for active people. Everyday that you wear it the GPS-enabled Polar M400 tracks your steps, distance traveled and calories burned. Also, an onboard heart-rate monitor means that this watch will even keep track of the hours of quality sleep you get at night. And because Le Lexury sells it, you know that the Polar M400 is just as fashionable as it is useful.

Tips From HITCHED! Bridal Hong Kong: Why Brides Should Consider Wearing A Wedding Veil

February 9, 2015


It’s a universal fact that brides want to look and feel their most beautiful on their very special day. They want to walk the aisle towards the man of their dreams with extra confidence and grace. They want to wear the most beautiful wedding gown, the classiest pair of shoes, the cleanest and most skillfully done makeup. However, there’s one aspect that perhaps not all brides can agree upon – to wear or not to wear a wedding veil. Some brides may deem it imperative to wear a bridal headpiece. Some might forego it. At the end of the day, while it’s still the bride’s prerogative that would matter, here are a few reasons, from HITCHED! Bridal Hong Kong, as to why brides should consider wearing a bridal veil.



  1. Wedding veils quickly and easily add that touch of elegance to the bridal look. Nothing else spells simple yet sophisticated elegance than a tulle birdcage veil with eye-catching Swarovski crystals. The Alice Headband by Sara Gabriel Veils is a perfect example. When worn, it doesn’t overwhelm.


  1. Brides who wear bridal headpieces tend to look fresher and brighter. Headpieces are, after all, accessories that help amp up the look.


  1. Historically, wedding veils just simply add more sense of occasion. This reason may be the game changer especially for brides who value tradition. Wearing a bridal veil has just simply been the practice.


As a final push to convince brides to wear a veil, HITCHED! Bridal Hong Kong has an offer: visit their shop to see their collection of world-class Sara Gabriel Veils and headpieces. Once brides see the quality, softness and elegance of the Sara Gabriel wedding veils, they would surely say yes in a heartbeat.

HITCHED! Bridal Hong Kong Introduces Beautiful Sara Gabriel Veils and Headpieces

September 9, 2012

While many brides focus on finding the most beautiful wedding gown of their dreams, the wedding veil or wedding headpiece is often overlooked. Wedding veils and headpieces receive just as much attention from attendees as the gown because of its position on the bride’s face.  When looking for a veil, one of the most important things to focus on is the fabric whether it is sheer enough.  We have seen countless brides walking down the aisle with a blusher over their face that is so opaque that you are barely see the bride’s face.  The bride’s entrance on the arm of her father is such an important moment that you really don’t want to not see the bride’s beautiful face.  Thankfully, HITCHED! Bridal Hong Kong now carries handmade wedding veils designed by Sara Gabriel. Sara Gabriel produces only the most beautiful veils and headpieces that every bride would be excited to wear.

Just take this Siren veil below. With delicate Swarovski rhinestones generously sprinkled on each side of this wedding veil, this will elegantly and subtly cover a bride’s face. You can get this veil in pale ivory, black, and diamond white. Ask HITCHED! Bridal for options.

Another Sara Gabriel masterpiece is this Fifi veil below. This wedding veil boasts of Swiss Dot fabric – a not-so-common choice among brides. This bridal veil is a great choice for those who want to make a statement during their wedding! The length of this Fifi Veil by Sara Gabriel is up to 30 inches.

Which of these two bridal veils would you love to wear? Let us know through the HITCHED! Bridal Facebook Page.

In the meantime, why don’t you see these gorgeous babies up close and personal? Set an appointment with HITCHED! Bridal Hong Kong today and get the veil of your dreams.
