I have just received a special gift from Henry London, and I cannot be more excited about their launch here in the Philippines.
If you’re not yet a watch enthusiast and haven’t heard of Henry London, here’s what you need to know:
- Henry London is definitely vintage inspired. It began when two designers found a 1960s vintage timepiece at the famous Portobello Road Market (in London’s vintage district.)
- Who is Henry? The piece had the words ‘Henry, August 1965’ engraved on the case back. The designers then took it upon themselves to carry on Henry’s name in a line that exemplifies British design and heritage.
- Cutting-edge technology. Henry London’s collection is created with front line technology, but not skipping it’s mid-century style.
- Modern Day Vintage. Their collection is all about the essence of 1960s design, but with the dozens of colors for straps brings out the modern taste.
- Keeping it personal. Henry London is bringing back the tradition of engraving. Pens, notebooks, lockets…when it’s engraved it makes it so much more special. Henry London gives you that opportunity, with their contemporary precision and reliability in high quality stainless steel.
I don’t have a large collection, as I’m still learning, but watches are an essential accessory to anyone’s wardrobe. When I got this piece it was exactly my taste. Adding this next to my only other watch, a 1969 Cartier Tank Quartz which was a gift for my 25th birthday, is helping me find my way to a girls own watch collection.
I’ll be featuring the Henry London watch in a series of post, so watch out!

It was perfection! The costumes, the choreography, the dancers, the MUSIC. Filled my hear with ultimate joy. My previous post on Cinderella (2015) AND this year’s performance by Ballet Manila, has made Cinderella my ultimate favorite princess. This was Ballet Manila’s first take on the production, with original choreography from no other than Lisa Macuja-Elizade (she also played the Fairy Godmother!) Click here for behind the scenes!
I brought along my mom and dad for the first time, and they LOVED it! My brother also enjoyed the detailed set designs, pointing out the moving hand on the clock about to stroke midnight! This production is by far my favorite, and I am so proud of Ballet Manila. They bring the best of ballet to Filipinos!
I had a Cinderella inspired outfit. Basically, I realized I had a dress that matched the Cinderella shade. Added pearls and a black ribbon and my favorite black coat.
Have a look at my video of the show:
I’m not going to lie, recreating vintage hairstyles is very difficult. It takes time and lots of patience. But, that’s what gives the glamour to the entire look, taking the time to perfect the hair and giving it the best potential. It’s not just a brush and go, it’s really about sculpting and styling. Finding the right technique can take years and I decided to check out the beautiful Vintage Vandalizm’s routine. I have to say that I am completely satisfied! Of course, I still need to practice and I am adding in a few of my own touches. Once I perfect it, I promise to share so keep a look out for my tutorial!
The BenCab Museum near Baguio City was so much fun. Aside from the vast collection of Ben, our guide Ryan gave us a unique experience through the museum. He himself is very artistic, taking our smart phones and incorporate the art into our photos.
My photos are taken in the erotica section, where there are interesting works of art on the…well art of sex. It’s a very popular feature in this museum.
Obsessed with mermaids, finding this bag was a dream. Abby Jocson has numerous quirky designs from pineapples to hearts. My belt is from Pattye’s Closet, a vintage boutique in Glendale. It was a score (at just $10). The swallows are classic. Something from Sailor Jerry, or any flash tattoo design.
