Happy Lunar New Year - Year of the Goat!

Friday, February 20, 2015 Simone Foster 29 Comments

Happy Lunar New Year everyone!

As we enter the Year of the Goat with much festivities,lion dances, eating and drinking... here's some pics I managed to shoot whilst out with the family for a beautiful New Year's eve dinner.

Whilst red is the chosen colour by many for this auspicious period, I decided to go for a much pleasant shade of pastel pink for a change this year. This Whistles dress was a gift and I love the flowing silhouette of this outfit - very giving, especially when one needs to hide that tummy after a big dinner.



So, traditionally for Chinese / Lunar New Year, most of us would seek out some form of zodiac reading to determine what lies ahead for us for 2015 ( Year of the Goat). For those of you who are not as familiar with the Chinese Zodiac calendar, we have 12 Zodiac signs named after certain animals and there is a folklore behind why only these animals are represented in the chinese zodiac of 12 year cycles. They are namely: Rat, Ox, Tiger, Rabbit, Dragon, Snake, Horse, Goat, Monkey, Rooster, Dog & Pig. You can find your zodiac sign based on your year of birth HERE.



Often with your zodiac signs, you will learn what you should or should not do for the year e.g career wise, luck in love and even simple things like what colours you should be using for the year to bring the most out of the year for your star sign. Compatibility signs with your partners are often indicated giving some direction to those die hard believers.


So, what are your wishes for the Year of the Goat? Personally for me, good health is always the most important followed by happiness, love and finally success in all I do.




So to add a little trivia to chinese superstition, I had great laughs with my friends over this topic recently and figured it would be fun to share with you. Do you know what your moles on your body signify for you and if it can tell your fortune?

Check out the significances here in this article by The Daily Mail - Click Here!  Hope you find some interesting facts about the moles on your body! 

Wishing one and all a year of blessings and good health!!

  5. Also, we are going to go see the Lion Dances at the huge Viet Hoa shopping center here in Houston. We have a very large Asian culture here, it's really cool and easy to share their lifestyles.

  9. Thanks so much for the Terrific Review on Happy Lunar New Year - Year of the Goat! I really enjoyed reading your review! The dress and accessories were extremely nice! They really looked wonderful on you! I don't know too much about the Lunar New Year, it's something that I never followed. I think it's terrific to hold on to certain beliefs and traditions! Like right now we're are in Lent. Lent will last up until Easter Sunday! I'm not overly religious, however, I do follow the tradition of no meat on Friday's during Lent. Plus we celebrate Easter as well! Thanks so much for sharing the Lunar New Year with all of us, the pictures of your outfit and the information you have shared with all of us! I honestly do appreciate it! Thanks again, Michele :)

  18. Beautiful dress. It can be hard to find a pale pink dress but it's a gorgeous color, and not extremely "girly." I also love that yellow chair thingy you were sitting on!
