Chinese New Year: happy nibbling to all VivaBellas

Chinese New Year Chinese New Year: happy nibbling to all VivaBellas

If you’re a Chinese, you must be celebrating Chinese New Year like me here, which is marked by new clothes, reunion dinners, lo hei, mandarin oranges and red packets. Because I was working till Tuesday, and I’ve been rather busy, I didn’t really have time to buy new clothes this year. But I do have some new pieces and one of them is a cheongsam that you see here. I’ve tried it on once and my hubby said it made me look older. I think the reason he said that is because it reminded me of my sister-in-laws who are always dressed in cheongsams during this festival. Well, I’ll be taking some pictures and I’ll post them up some time later and you tell me okay?

A new year is upon us soon and have you got your goals all set? Well, one of my beauty goals in 2011 is to move on to use more natural and organic makeup as I’ve not been able to do so this year.

So let me leave you with three of my favorite entries this year to enjoy:

Anyone wearing a polka red dot dress tied with a red grosgrain ribbon for X’mas? Well, I’m not but I found this Origami folded dress version in card version from Maranda, an online store that makes one-of-a-kind handmade paper creations. I thought it’s such a cutie and a nice way to wish all my readers a Merry Christmas here!

Before I go, just wanted to share a modified X’mas joke with you.
