Perfect Wedding Gift – A Box Full Of Happiness

Summer is definitely a wedding season! I have three wedding events on my calendar through the Summer and Fall – two are girl friends’ and one from the family. About the wedding gift, I never want to send a gift card – because everyone will choose the easiest way to buy a gift card. But I am not saying gift card isn’t good, your friends just need something more unique and they can remember your sweetness afterwards.

For June 23rd, my girl friend Miss L’s wedding, I have prepared a great gift for her and I am a hundred percent confident about this lovely gift that she would love love love it. But now, let me talk about Miss L first. She is an American girl grew up in Long Island. She is very beautiful with long blonde hair, she’s tall, skinny… When the first time I met her through our common friend, I made my mind to make friends with her. The most wonderful thing is she speaks perfect Mandarin since she lived in China for work for a couple of years. She knows I come from China and we talked a lot in Mandarin! Not only about the language, she also knows very well about Chinese culture.

So in her wedding, I will surprise her with the perfect gift – A Box Full Of Happiness from RITUALS. This box is from the collection named Happy Buddha.

What is Happy Buddha?

Inspired by the ancient monk whose legendary smile brought happiness wherever he went, The Ritual of Happy Buddha collection was created to boost body and soul with a burst of positivity. Infused with Sweet Orange and Cedar Wood, every product in the relaunched home and body collection puts a radiant smile on your face. Discover this uplifting collection and spread joy wherever you go and whatever you do.

Every Chinese people should have a big influence by Laughing Buddha, at least my generation. I remember when I grew up, every single my family member’s home has a statue or painting of this culture symbol. We believe he can bring the good luck, happiness and healthiness to our lives. We really believe in this and it has been a long history in Eastern culture for thousands of years.

I am so surprise to see RITUALS has this lovely collection and it means a lot to the people who love oriental cultures.

The reason it can be a perfect wedding gift is because the knot on the package is a sign of marriage in China. It combines two same words together to be a new non-existing word. The two words is in Mandarin meaning happiness. So the new word is double happiness. Isn’t it so cute?

Let’s see what are inside the box?

Welcome To The Egg House

This is the last month The Egg House stay in New York. Let us grab the last chance to check this very cool place out!

What is The Egg House?

The world’s beloved breakfast food found a new home in New York City! When his friends ask him why NYC, Ellis replies, “I have a dream that I could be a part of something greater here.” He has opened up his humble home in the Lower East Side, where together we get to interact with his hopes and dreams in a place called The Egg House.

Embark On A Journey with an ambitious egg living in the Lower East Side. As a new eggling arriving to New York City, Ellis hits the concrete jungle and visits the bright lights in Times Square. With little money, Ellis goes window shopping in Soho and visits the Met. On nights and weekends, Ellis works at a modest restaurant to keep the big dream alive of becoming a part of something greater.

New York City is the playground to find yourself but coming to a new place with dreams sometimes can feel lonely. The Egg House is a place where we can come together and celebrate our dreams & aspirations and see what great things New York City has in store.

The Egg House starts when Ellis lays down to rest and the magic begins!

Featuring Yueming Qu’s “Young and Beautiful – Something About New York” Project

The graduates in illustration MFA Program at Fashion Institute of Technology (FIT) will be presenting their works in Gallery FIT located in the Museum at FIT on Seventh Avenue at 27th Street in New York City. The exhibition runs from June 13th to the end of the month. The Museum is open from Tuesday to Friday, 12pm to 8pm, and Saturday, 10am to 5pm.The exhibition is titled “Thirteen Stories”, as there are thirteen students in this class. Fashion artist Yueming Qu will be showing her artworks from her book, titled:” Young and Beautiful – Something About New York”.

“Young and Beautiful – Something About New York” is a guide book of New York City using illustrations from some young girls’ perspectives. They are seventeen girls who live in New York City, whose age range from twenty to early thirties. The girls came from different countries, working in different fields, and looking extremely different, but now, all of them are living in the same city – New York. Yueming gathered these seventeen girls by friends’ introducing, Craigslist, Instagram, and even in the subway. All the girls are young, and beautiful no matter outside and inside. Yueming found the attractive points of these girls and interviewed with them. She asked questions about these girls’ lives in New York, and let them to introduce some good spots in the city, such as their favorite restaurants and the best nightlife places. Then Yueming would go to the spots to check out and illustrate them. At the exhibition, Yueming makes her work an interactive work. She printed her illustrations on nice paper and handcrafted them into magnets which the people attending the exhibit can interact with.

“New York is the most international city in the world. People here are comimg to chase their dreams from every corner of the earth, of course including these young girls. They are young, ambitious, hard working, but sometimes they feel tired of busy New York lives. I interviewed with them and get to know the real lives in this city, what they answered is what I drew on the paper. It is all real.” Yueming stated, “I know there are already thousands of guide books about this city, but the one I make is just from these young female New Yorkers’ perspectives.” Yueming loves doing live location sketches in the city because she thinks New York is the city that keeps changing but at the same time has a timeless beauty. Watercolor, gouache, ink and pen, she uses these materials to illustrate these fashionable girls with their suggestions about the city.

The two things make Yueming’s art style impressive are she originally came from China and majored in Chinese painting. She graduated from the Central Academy of Fine Arts in Beijing and got a Master of Art degree. Three years ago, she came to New York to be a fashion illustrator. Her artwork has been exhibited in museums and galleries internationally and published in many magazines such as Interiors + Sources magazine and Woman’s Day magazine. She was invited to draw live sketches in New York Fashion Week every season.

Yueming still keeps using traditional Asian brushes to draw the color, and she uses pen to make fine lines. She says fashion illustration is not only about pretty girls, and it can go deeper than surface appearance. For more information contact Yueming Qu at quyueminglulu@gmail.com.
