Were you born in the year of the monkey? Our very own Rachel was. It is said that if you are born in the year of the Monkey, you are known to be sociable, inteligent, enthusiastic and gentle all very great traits to have but your weeknesses are that you can be jealous, selfish, arrogant, suspicious and bad tempered…..oh boy! We’re sure that’s not all of you 😉

Pop Out Monkey

Unfortunate for those born in this year, It is actually known  as one of the most unlucky years in the Chinese zodiac. We’re strong believers that you make your own luck so don’t let that put a dampner on being born in the year of the mischevious monkey :p


With festivites taking place across the world we’re sure you’ll see some of the many beautiful celebrations where you are. We were treated to mesmerising Chinese Dragons and traditional Chinese Dress on the Royal Mile at the weekend.
