Dear February || Who What Wear

Hello Hello,

February is more than half way through. There is still room for snow, but I’ve been grateful for the warm weather. The warm weekend prompt me to spend the day outside in this beautiful dress from the who what wear collection with Target.

I love the light chiffon material and the contrast floral print. I love the long sleeves and the high neck. It has a 70’s vibe. It makes me want to stand on a hilltop with the breeze against my face.

And though February is the shortest month of the year, it marks the start of longer days. I can’t wait READ MORE

5 Reasons to Try Sheet Masks

Hello Hello

I love skin care. Though there are days when I dread washing my face and going through the application routine, I’m always on the lookout for something new and for something that my skin loves. While I’ve gone through different cleansers, toners, moisturizers, serums, and creams throughout the years, there’s something I use that is consistent. Can you guess? Yup, sheet masks. Though I do try different brands, I tend to go for ones I know works for me.


And here are 5 reasons why you NEED to try sheet masks too:

1) Hydration/Moisture: One HUGE reason I love sheet masks, they bring hydration and moisture back to my skin. In the winter months, my dry skin sucks all that moisture up, helping my skin stay hydrated. In the summer months, my skin absorbs the moisture, helping my skin stay healthy and bright. READ MORE

Where Winter Was || Button Skirt & Turtleneck

Hello Hello,

looks by mc, button skirt

Most days I can’t get my hair together (as you can see from the photos). Even so, I’m excited about an upcoming project that I am starting. Yes, it has to do with writing right here and now. Being a writer, I read, I find stories, I create. I can’t wait to share it with you!

In the meantime, January is already soaring by. I can’t believe we’re already into the last full week of January!

looks by mc, skirt, turtleneck This past weekend was in the 50’s. I know colder days are coming (February is always cold), so I took advantage of the warm weather. This outfit is simple. I went with a striped turtleneck for extra coverage and warmth, the stripes add an extra “pop” to a rather minimal look. READ MORE

Black & Blue || Sweater & Turtleneck

Hello Hello,

looks by mc-new year winter outfit

It’s January. Well, 9 days into January. Like I mentioned in my previous post, this new year I am not making new year resolutions. I only have roll-over goals: things I want to keep going and improving on. I’m excited for this year though! A lot more excited than I was for last year. Though the days have been cold, January didn’t start off too shabby. I’ve already done something I’ve never done before. Plus, I know spring is coming. (The sun has been setting later than in December).

To embrace this cold January, I thought it’ll be appropriate to pair up black and blue. I especially love this chunky blue sweater (similar here). It helps to bring a pop of color into a rather simple and dark look. I layered a black turtleneck underneath, then finished with black pants and booties (similar here). READ MORE
