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.



Bamboa Home – Sustaining our lifestyle!

A visit to our boutique in the PMQ building, located in Soho on Hong Kong Island will yield attractive contemporary bamboo products made by local artists. Our goal is to provide high-quality bamboo products, help rural communities and to encourage the use of a sustainable resource.

It also provides a stable source of income for about 1.5 billion people- helping them to overcome poverty and deprivation. Combined with a future of scarce resources and limited energy- Bamboa Home believes rediscovering the beauty of bamboo is integral to our Earth’s future!

For stylish, high-quality protection from the sun- you’ll love our Booshades! We use 100% sustainable bamboo in every pair for the ultimate eco-friendly fashionista.

The wedding dress is the point of much attention for a soon-to-be bride.

HIV Advocates supports AIDS Concern

HIV Advocates would like to urge all male expats to help with a brand new study by AIDS Concern. Your assistance and input can help improve local Hong Kong support services and ultimately prevent the rise and spread of HIV infections.

AIDS Concern will be holding confidential interviews over the next few weeks- they want to hear your opinions!  This study is to determine if male expats are at a higher risk than Chinese males for HIV infection in Hong Kong. It will also assist in assessing the needs of Non-Chinese speakers and visitors to Hong Kong. AIDS Concern would love to get your insight- confidentially of course- over a cup of coffee.

If you are a non-Chinese man interested in having a confidential discussion on HIV risk in your community, we would appreciate your help. Please contact Grace Wayser at AIDS Concern until August 7, 2015, by email to schedule your interview. She would love to meet you at their office in Chai Wan or at your favorite local coffee shop—wherever you’d like.

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.
