What a beauty & food filled party! 🧨🧧🐇

Chinese New Year is here and I have been enjoying celebrating. Food, family and time to reflect on our lives. It is also a time to open our hearts and spirit to attract and welcome good health, prosperity, happiness and overall year round good luck.

Did you know for the Asian people its not just about a one night NYE 🎊 🥂 🍾 celebration it’s a 15 day affair. They really know how to party and so much more! Family is the core of the festive and food filled celebration.

I am happy to be a part of the culture!

Red lanterns and lots of gold decor are abound.

Since I am an all American girl who happens to be of Chinese AND Polish descent. I celebrate it in my own way too! I love spreading the word and supporting small mom and pop businesses too. Eating, sipping or fun shopping Chinatown’s in USA and beyond are my happy place.

I love to explore

Now in beauty there are a few points of interest you might like to know.

No hair cutting or washing on New Year’s Day. Some prefer not to take a bath or shower as they don’t want to wash prosperity and luck away. The Chinese character for hair is the same as the first character in the word prosper. That is why they do this still to this day.

This festival time RED 💋 lipstick 💄 is a must especially if they wear lipstick. As you may know some Asian women prefer no lipstick. It just depends on their style. Red is a fire color. Sure to bring in your good luck and prosperity.

Bold colored fashions or hues of red (solo) in their outfits are worn to celebrate too!

My favorite part of celebrating is eating. Chinese Dumplings 🥟 are eaten and devoured with glee. The more the merrier! As they believe the luckier and more prosperous you’ll be in the new year. Fingers crossed🤞

The shape of these dumplings 🥟 resemble pieces of gold. Symbolizing wealth.

I hope you enjoyed these small bites of interest, food plus beauty on Chinese New Year. 🧨🧧🐇

Time to celebrate…the Lunar New Year way!

It has been a busy few days getting ready for Chinese New Year 🧧 in my personal life and in my beauty business. I love celebrating the beauty of every single day!

Yesterday I did and featured a fun segment on TV 📺 chatting it up on all things lunar new year.

Chinese New year is a 15 day celebration I didn’t want another day to go by without sharing one of my beauty secrets… Asian Rice Powder.

It is a fierce and fabulous multi-tasking beauty product!

Looks like a square chocolate brownie only it’s white in color. It reduces shine on your T-zone and makes your makeup last longer. It also makes keeps your makeup shades from turning orange. You know what I mean? Sometimes people have issues with that from their body chemistry. Very frustrating! Their foundation colors, powder or blush turns a not so pretty darker and orange like hue.

It is an iconic beauty powder that is centuries old. Not a powder from Japan theater 🎭 or used by geisha’s. It’s light and lovely. In fact people love the delicate floral scent.

Years ago I turned my clients on to this! Especially brides-to-be, brides and bridal parties.
