What's a celebration without food? We've all been guilty of sharing photos of our meals at one point or another, so why not do the same when there are tons of festive snacks around to be photographed? To bring good luck to different aspects of life for the New Year, the Chinese eat different kinds of foods. So don't hesitate to spread the luck and well wishes when you post a photo of the festive snack you're having.

Shades of Red

In Chinese culture, red is an auspicious colour. Get prepped for success by greeting the New Year with an image that has a pop of red in it. It could be anything, but beauty products are always good subjects. The SK-II Facial Treatment Essence now comes in a multi-coloured Phoenix limited edition design – inspired by Suminagashi art – just in time for CNY. Looking for your pop of red? This bottle of miracle water will definitely stand out in any feed – not to mention that it works wonders for the skin.

Celebrating Chinese New Year means another bout of festive gatherings, and that also means putting your best face forward. Be confident in your skin by making sure that you stick to a good routine and use products that are tried and tested to bring outstanding results, like the SK-II Facial Treatment Essence. It isn't the brand's signature product for nothing. The famed Facial Treatment Essence makes skin radiantly beautiful by reducing the appearance of wrinkles, making spots less visible, refining skin texture, improving skin's firmness and giving you a covetable glow. Once you're confident in your look – good lighting or not – snap away.

Something New

The Chinese believe that donning new clothes from head to toe symbolises a fresh start for the New Year. Whether it’s a new dress you just bought, or the shoes you plan on wearing on your new adventures, strut your stuff in your new gear and share an image of something new on you.

The Chinese New Year, just like any other holiday, is best celebrated with family. It's a time to gather and look back on the year that was and look ahead at all the wonderful things to come. Gather the people you hold dear, freeze the moment via a photo, and share it for the world to see.

Whether you're a man or a woman, your hair is your crowning glory. Before anyone lays eyes on your killer brows, mesmerising eyes, and flawless feline flicks, your locks are the first thing they see. Which is why there’s no shame in not wanting to drastically change your hair look  if you’re currently sporting a style that suits you well, you may be wondering why you should change something that isn’t broken.

But if an urge to suddenly have a new hair style hits, you won’t have to worry about completely altering your tresses as these five looks will instantly give your hair a 2017 upgrade.


Layered Lob

Everyone loved the lob in 2016 and the fondness for it shows no signs of stopping. So to update it for the Year of the Rooster, add in more layers for extra movement. The result? A fun, textured hairstyle that is perfect for both casual and formal ensembles.

The Shag

Perfectly undone with shiny layers, a cut like 'The Shag' will give you a 'woke-up-like-this' vibe everyday because it styles itself. Not only will you save time in the morning, but you’ll also have that 'cool girl' look 24/7.


Flipped Hair

Afraid to change the way you part your hair for fear it might alter how your face shape looks? Not to worry because flipped hair is in  no cuts needed! Just choose which side you want your hair to fall on, flip it over, and you’re done. But in order to maximise the full potential of this look, make sure you spritz on a little volumising or texturising spray to give your tresses body and fullness.

High Ponytail

Messy buns in 2017? No, thank you. It’s all about clean high ponytails now. As a guaranteed face lifter (hello, firmer skin!), whether it’s wavy, curly, or straight, a high pony will add elegance and ease to any outfit you wear.


Sleek Strands

If last year was all about beachy hair, this year is all about sleek and straight strands. So bust out your flatiron and straighten your hair to perfection for a look that is universally flattering and screams 'high fashion.'
