Get Ready For Chinese New Year With Cindy

We embark on a CNY festive shopping spree

What’s Chinese New Year without more festive shopping? In light of the most celebrated holiday amongst the Chinese community, we followed Clozette Ambassador and digital beauty influencer Cindy on her CNY festive shopping spree.

“If I had to pick three words to describe what Chinese New Year means to me, they would be ‘family’, ‘reunion’ and ‘tradition’.” Read on as the new mum of four month-old Chriselle shares her festive picks with us – and walks us through how she prepares for CNY with those three words in mind.


Add a touch of warmth with decorations

“I’ve always treasured our annual family get-together! Even during my flying days (as a former air stewardess), I always found myself longing to be home to spend the holidays with my family. This appreciation for family reunions was instilled in me from a very young age. I believe it was our parents’ way of reminding us to spend quality time loving and appreciating our family.

My first order of business will be to de-clutter and get rid of the old. Then, it’s on to setting our cosy abode up for the celebration and adding a touch of festive vibes with CNY decorations.”
Ensure snacks are well stocked

“Making sure that there are appropriate CNY goodies and that these snacks are well stocked for the family and relatives visiting are a must during the Lunar New Year celebrations. Food is something to enjoy the festive joy with for the young and elderly.”

Glam up with new clothes

“Glam up with new clothes, such as a classic cheongsam, to stay in sync with tradition. This year’s extra special as I get to shop for Chriselle too! She will be twinning with her mum for her first Chinese New Year.”
Refresh with an efficient beauty regimen

“As I am currently a full time stay-home mum, a complex beauty regimen takes away too much time from BabyC. A simple yet efficient regimen with the SK-II Facial Treatment Essence is what I need to start the day right with well-nourished skin. 2017 shall be a year of simplicity at its best.

With the FTE, I noticed my skin is supple to the touch, well moisturised and nourished. It allows my serums and moisturisers to absorb well thereafter. I’ve been using the FTE for years!”

Prepare red packets for good luck

“Collecting ang baos, or red packets, during CNY was one of the highlights for me as I was growing up. It’s now my turn to pack and bless the next generation during this festive period.”
