Year of the Dragon + a Temple Fair
Happy Tuesday all!
As you probably already know, 2012 is the Year of the Dragon according to the Chinese zodiac calendar – so today I want to show you the photos we shot at Ditan Park’s Temple Fair last week. Temple fairs are a Chinese tradition, particularly around Chinese New Year. For a week they are held in different temples or parks around the country, where you can watch traditional performances, try local snacks and delicacies, play games or buy cute little toys and souvenirs, and push your way through lots and lots of people! Ditan Park has one of the biggest temple fairs in Beijing, and we decided to check it out. I decided to bringing some of that New Year spirit into my outfit with these red stripes
How is your week going? I’m off to have Japanese ramen for dinner – this place near our apartment does the best ramen I’ve EVER had. Mmm!
On the rocks
My Monday got off to a chilly start – dodging snowflakes on my scooter as I made my way to work! The good thing about riding a scooter in the freezing winter – rather than jumping in a cosy taxi - is I’m always alert and wide awake by the time I reach the office, haha.
Here is today’s Look for you – featuring this H&M hoodie and gray boots that were a present from my brother almost 6 years ago. Call me sentimental, but as a present from my brother they are probably the item I’ve had in my wardrobe the longest! I love them – and they’ve served me well. I’m a big fan of casual dressing and hoodies, but to dress up this look a little I added the striped jacket and gold jewellery. What do you think?
Hey beautiful people, happy Sunday!
Spent my day up at Nanshan snowboarding, escaping the city for some fresh air – so good to be out in the sunshine! What did you guys get up to?
