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
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!
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
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
Even though it totally feels just like a normal tomorrow with the only difference being the year, it’s a new year! 2016 was a year of challenges and emotions both good and bad. I spent a lot of time thinking more than doing but I believe those times were much needed. While I’m a bit anxious and afraid of what’s to come, I’m also excited for this new year–the new challenges, the new activities, the new things I’ll learn. I’m challenged, encouraged, and empowered to make this new year different.
For the first time, I will not be having resolutions, just 2 goals. But today, I’m here to share this outfit with you. This Hmong inspired dress was made by my grandmother a few years ago. I wanted to feature it here. I layered the dress over a white turtleneck and black tights. The embroidered pieces on the dress was actually hand embroidered. How cool is that?
