Happy Chinese New Year! Leave it to me to find another holiday to celebrate. Oh well, life is about being festive and celebrating it as much as possible, isn’t it?

I have always admired the ambiance of this restaurant where we took these pictures. I thought it was a perfect place to take pictures, it being the Chinese New Year and all.

Quick Tip: If you find yourself in a conundrum with what to do with your hair- braid it! Braids are full proof, they are sleek, sexy, and timeless. I see myself having different styles of braids in the near future.

What about you? Do you like braids, is there a particular style you like or dislike? Let me know in the comments.

Don’t feel like leaving the house for Valentines day? Here is my how to guide to spending the night (or day) in with your special someone for Valentines day.

-Pick out the girliest dress in your closet
-Grab your sexiest lingerie
-Pull out a pair of sheer pantyhose
-Slip your fresh pedicured feet in your favorite heels
-Have a lot of candy, cakes, and candles
-Bring out the candle holders and candy dishes
-Your preferred choice of beverage
-Pandora’s 90’s R&B station
-Enjoy the company of your special someone
-Maybe an impromptu photo shoot
-Have fun (try not to take yourself or others too seriously)

If you don’t have these things on hand, head to the store to pick up a few things, or be creative and make do with what you have. Everything I am wearing are items that have been in my closet. I picked up a few bags of candy, and Little Debbie Valentine cakes from the store. I baked a few cupcakes and asked my honey to pick up a few roses. Although, if this is Valentines day I will hope the prompting of flowers isn’t needed. But you never know, sometimes they need prompting.

Do you celebrate Valentines Day? If so, what are your plans?
