London is calling!!! And Guess what??? John Lewis is here in Manila!
I was so excited when I got the invitation to go to the event that I was the first guest to arrive. Literally!!!
And you know what they say: “The early bird catches the worm” but in my case, the early bird gets the best photos, undisrupted on the vignettes and sofa. Haha!
For those who are unfamiliar with the brand, John Lewis is the famous department store in the UK that holds 3 Royal warrants. YEEES – you heard me right! John Lewis is a retailer that has been selected by the royal family to supply their drapery, furnishing and household goods to no less than Her Majesty the Queen of England, HRH The Prince of Wales and HRH The Duke of Edinburgh. WOW!
And now, we have the honor, luxury and great pleasure of having John Lewis in the Philippines. I’m so happy that SM Home at The SM Store brought in a brand that can actually bring a taste of royalty into our homes. Who wouldn’t want a little royal treatment every now and then?
Look at this trendy selection from John Lewis?! So fab! My daugter Danielle will looove THAT. I must say that SM Home has really taken their brand selection to a whole new level – good quality products with prices that are very reasonable AND affordable. And like a always say: I like shopping as much as I can get value for my hard earned money. That’s a MUST!
LOOK AT THIS! I simply cannot get over these fabulous prints. It’s definitely my personal favorite! Just looking at it makes a loud statement: The Brits are here and seriously, LONDON IS CALLING. I love it!

Oh and I just want to give you a little perspective of how BIG (size and popularity) John Lewis actually is – check out their store in York! Massive right?
I took the liberty to show you the things that caught my eye and tickles my fancy. Gosh! Aren’t John Lewis products understated yet amazing. It’s so tasteful and excudes its own class.
