5 Things to Try This Month – February 2017

I feel like it only has been a couple of weeks since I returned from my holiday vacation in Spain. And it’s hard to believe that the first month of Year 2017 is already over!

Now, it’s time to enjoy the busy month, February. Why do I consider February a busy month? Because many of my dear friends and my brother’s birthdays are in February. And my birthday is in February, too!

Every year, we always celebrate someone’s birthday each week throughout February. And below are some of the things I’d like to try for this February, the month of birthday celebrations!

Drink the Limited-edition Nespresso Coffee

Nespresso just released a  new limited-edition Selection Vintage 2014 coffee capsules (100% Colombian Arabica beans). Usually, Nespresso offeres  different kinds of limited-edition coffee for its two different types of machines: VertuoLine and OriginalLine. But for this Selection Vintage 2014, Nespresso made it available for both machines. I got the Selection Vintage 2014 capsules for both on my VertuoLine and OriginalLine machines from Nespresso boutique last night. I can’t wait to try them today!

Accessory to Master Selfie

I am not an expert in taking selfie pictures, but one of the few times I tried, I found myself in an environment that wasn’t bright enough for selfie. For this birthday celebrating month, I got a selfie accessory, the LuMee. This is designed by a professional photographer to help provide extra light for selfie pictures.

Add a New Red Dress to the Wardrobe

Red is one of my favorite colors, especially when it comes to fashion accessories. Since it’s my birthday month, I have another reason to shop for a red dress! Try Self-portrait Floral Blush Midi Dress.

Create the Rainbow Reflection with Each Step You Take

Although we are still in Winter, it’s never too early to start planning for Spring. Why not treat yourself to a nice pair of crystal flats like the rainbow ones from Christian Louboutin?

Light Up Your Mood with New Candle

Diptyque has always been one of my favorite brands when it comes to perfume and scented candles. For this month, I’d like to try Diptyque’s new limited-edition Rosa Mundi 190g candle.

Sheer Panel Dresses

It seems like a recent trend is the increasing popularity of dresses that have a sheer panel.

Last season I was shopping for a new dress on the Saks web site.  I noticed an interesting Alice + Olivia’s fit and flare long dress with multiple sheer lace panels.  It came only in maroon.

I really liked it and so I bought it.

When I got the dress, to be honest, I wasn’t really sure on what type of occasions I could wear it to.  I was surprised to find that I was able to wear the dress at different events; Sinatra restaurant in Las Vegas and Saison restaurant in San Francisco.

While shopping online recently I noticed that many brands have dresses with sheer panels.  To update your closet wardrobe for Spring, you might want to check out this style!
