My dear and best friend Crisa is an event planner and organizing the wedding of Karen & Luis. I was lucky to be asked to do their wedding invitations.  Their colors are navy and gold.  I put together 5 options in both white/gold and navy/gold for the couple. Which one do you like best?

backstage at Rodarte

Rodarte 2016

The word for the look of the Rodarte 2016 Fall Fashion collection is ethereal.  I personally think the backstage scene is more interesting than the Runway show. I love that these backstage photos show you the fashion behind-the-scenes in a cool and edgy way.  Fashion, Hair, makeup…everything was on point. Here is a glimpse of the 2016 Fall Rodarte collection…

Year of the Monkey

Year of the Monkey

Gong Hey Fat Choy. This means Happy New Year (Cantonese).  Chinese New Year officially starts on February 8, 2016 and ends January 27, 2017. The monkey is the 9th animal of  the 12 animals in the Chinese zodiac cycle.

If you are a monkey?

You are characterized as lively, quick-witted, curious, innovative and mischievous, but it is also believed to be one of the most unlucky years in the Chinese calendar.  The general image of people in this zodiac sign is of always being smart, clever and intelligent, especially in their career and wealth.

In addition, their gentleness and honesty bring them an everlasting love life. Although they were born with enviable skills, they still have several shortcomings, such as an impetuous temper and a tendency to look down upon others.

Lucky signs for Monkeys…

  • Lucky numbers: 1, 7, 8
  • Lucky colours: white, gold, blue
  • Lucky flowers: chrysanthemum, alliums
  • Lucky directions: north, northwest, west
