Tourists

Traveling is one of the greatest privileges a person can have. It's stepping out of your world to enter a different one, with new people, new traditions, new ways of living. I've been fortunate enough to do a bit of traveling; I've been to the Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Sacramento, Tokyo, Seoul... Every city has left an imprint on my heart, on my brain. 

For me, traveling requires courage, because being a tourist isn't easy. I like to try my hardest and blend in, live like a local, soak in all the life lessons these new cities have to give. I can tell you, so far, it works. I've been able to feel like a part of that new world, like I'm no intruder. Based on that, I teamed up with a couple other bloggers for this editorial, inspired on being a tourist. I hope you guys like it.

YouTube monthly recap: August

Hey guys! It's that time of the month again where I'm recapping all the videos that went online on my YouTube channel during the month of August. This has been a really good month for me and creating those videos was heaps of fun. Videos are way different from what I usually do here but, you know, I'm always up for a challenge.

Hope you guys like this and, if you do, come on board and subscribe to my channel for more useful or silly or fun stuff. I'll be waiting for you over there, okay? Thanks very much for all the support and I'll see you next month, when it's time to recap September.

// ¡Hey amigos! Otra vez es ese momento del mes donde hago una recapitulación de todos los videos que subieron a mi canal de YouTube durante el mes de agosto. Éste ha sido un muy buen mes para mí y crear estos videos fue muy divertido. Hacer videos es muy diferente a lo que usualmente muestro aquí pero, ya saben, siempre estoy dispuesto a un nuevo reto.

Espero que les guste esto y, si es así, se sumen al proyecto y se subscriban a mi canal para más cosas útiles, mensas o divertidas. Los espero por allá ¿sí? Gracias por todo el apoyo y nos vemos el siguiente mes, cuando sea hora de recapitular septiembre. 
Love always,
Henry.

Pop collab with Tommy Hilfiger 7 DiegoPopFridaPop Hey guys! A really cool thing happened this month: I was chosen to be an ambassador for Tommy Hilfiger for a couple of projects this year. That makes me feel very special. I can be very sleek and dark when it comes to the clothes I wear but I have a soft-spot for preppy items. Guess I always wanted the varsity jacket in high school or the family crest and stuff like that. That's where Tommy Hilfiger comes in.

I remember when they started with a campaign called "The Hilfigers", that was all about taking the brand to all ages and races and making all the people a family. As an advertiser, I loved it but; as a person, it resonated with me. Now, a couple of years later, I'm starting to feel as part of that family, as a Hilfiger.

The brand is currently sponsoring a really cool art exhibition called "#DiegoPopFridaPop" in Mexico City, it's all about Frida Kahlo and her husband (Diego Rivera) when they had to move to the States and how that transformed their lives and artistic style. Moving to a different country, even if it is for a short period of time, can change the way you look at life. All of the sudden, something inside you pops and you become a different version of yourself. I like that; I like those stories...

// ¡Hey amigos! Una cosa muy padre pasó este mes: me eligieron para ser embajador de Tommy Hilfiger para un par de proyectos este año. Eso me hace sentir muy especial. Puedo ser muy obscuro y raro cuando se trata de la ropa que uso pero tengo una debilidad por todo lo preppy. Creo que siempre quise esa chamarra varstity en la preparatoria o la cresta de la familia y cosas así. Ahí es donde entra Tommy Hilfiger.

Me acuerdo cuando empezaron con una campaña llamada "The Hilfigers", que se trataba de llevar la marca a todas las edades y razas y hacer, de toda la gente, una familia. Como publicista, me encantó pero; como una persona, hizo click conmigo. Ahora, un par de años más tarde, comienzo a sentirme como parte de esa familia, como un Hilfiger.

La marca está patrocinando una exposición de arte muy buena onda llamada "DiegoPopFridaPop" en la ciudad de México, se trata de Frida Kahlo y su esposo (Diego Rivera) cuando tuvieron que mudarse a Estados Unidos y cómo eso transformó su vida y estilo artístico. Mudarte a otro país, así sea por poco tiempo, puede cambiar la forma en que ves la vida. De repente, algo en ti hace pop y te conviertes en una versión diferente de ti mismo. Me gusta eso, me gustan esas historias... 

La exposición estará abierta al público hasta el 7 de septiembre y se localiza en la Galería Torre del Reloj, en el Parque Lincoln, Polanco.
