Chinese New Year & Links À La Mode

February 22, 2015
Chinese New Year Traditions

On our way home from the temple on New Year's Day, we happened upon a Lion dance performance in Chinatown. This traditional dance is an integral element to Lunar New Year celebrations around the world. There are usually two lions that dance along the streets to the sounds of a rhythmic drum beat and clashing cymbals. They will go around to visit local businesses to bless them with good luck and good fortune for the year.

My post on How To Celebrate Chinese New Year was selected for IFB's Links à la Mode. 


Wardrobe Refresh

There's nothing like Fashion Week to get you thinking about your wardrobe. Getting that preview of everything that will hit the streets in six months feels like a little trip to the future. Your present wardrobe? How can you refresh it so it's future proofed? That's where paying attention to fashion month comes in handy. This week we look at what's been happening, and how to give yourself that little treat to keep you from the winter blues.
