Welcome to this week’s Link-End Round-Up! I hope you had a great week. Mine’s was pretty ‘bleh’, mainly due to me being anxious. Anxiety is one of the worst emotions to deal with, because you know you’re dealing with and know why. However, you can’t easily snap out of it and you have to just ride it out. For me, I tapped on Wednesday night after the debate. So, before I went to bed, I meditated for 15 minutes and followed it with 10 minutes of stretching. I instantly felt better and my mind was cleared and I slept like a fat drunk baby. I had wine while I watched the debate.
This is going to be one of the first chilly weekends of the season and I’m going to enjoy it from the comforts of my sofa. I love chilly weekends, but the allure of lounging on my sofa, watching horror movies, and eating fun size pieces of Halloween candy sounds amazing.
However, I might also do some closet purging, because I want to minimize my clothing options. There are some more pieces I would like to add to my wardrobe, but I already have so many things that I don’t wear taking up space. So, before I add anything I want, I need to get of the things I don’t want. Just being practical and making mindful decisions.
In the meantime, have a great fall weekend and enjoy this week’s Link-End Round!
One of my hobbies is beauty stalking make-up, skincare, and other beauty products online. I typically fill my cart up, online and in-store, with different items I want to buy until I; remove them from my cart, buy them, or they expire in my online cart. Luckily, there are some online stores that let you keep items in your cart until they run of inventory and Sephora is one of those stores. Other than Amazon, I keep most products in my Sephora online cart than any other online store. However, I do end up buying most of them eventually. This process has helped me cut back on buying so much unnecessary stuff and learn to make more mindful buying decisions.
However, I decided to share the items that are currently sitting in my online Sephora cart. Also, you might notice that I’m currently into serums and primers. Keep reading to see what items are currently sitting in my Sephora online cart.
Let’s chat about pleated midi skirts for a minute to day, because they are probably the one thing that your closet is missing (mine, too). They are flirty due to the desire to twirl in them all day, but sophisticated thanks to the below the knee and timeless silhouette. However, I’m obsessed with the look of metallic pleated midi skirts. Metallic pleated midi skirts add an unexpected vibe to your wardrobe. Plus, they would make a great alternative to your favorite LBD during any upcoming holiday gatherings or parties. Just putting it out there.
In the meantime, get into these metallic pleated midi skirts.
Since I got my ends trimmed and hair dyed to my natural dark brown a couple of months ago, I have been embracing and wearing my natural curls more. This also caused me to look into trying more products for curly hair, which lead me to stumble back into some of the products I used when I first went natural many years. One of the first products I tried that made me love my natural curls was Carol’s Daughter’s Hair Milk. Since I haven’t used it in years, I decided that I would revisit it while I’m all in love with my curls again.
Last year, I went through a phase of trying to simplify and mainstream some areas of my everyday life. One of the areas that needed some trimming was my wallet. I had this tri-fold very fly and fashionable MCM wallet, but it was too roomy and kinda of bulky. It wasn’t that easy to grab and go, which was my vibe and lifestyle, at that time. So, I sold it on eBay and replaced it with a simple key wallet. Key wallets are great because they allow you carry all your basic necessities of keys, cash, and ID in one quick grab. However, I’ve now outgrown that lowkey lazy life and I’m in the market for a bigger grown-up womens wallets. Man, I’m annoyed that I sold my MCM one. Moving on!
You might be wondering “What’s a grown up wallet, anyway?” Well, my definition is a wallet that has allotted slots for cash, card, coins, and maybe a checkbook holder. Are there people that still carry their checkbook? Hmm? Anyway, some call them continental wallets or trifolds, but they tend to be longer, roomier, and have a compartment for all of your monetary and identification items.
Although you can find affordable and simple wallet anywhere, I would like my next wallet to have some character and personality to it. Fun colors, interesting textures, and functional details are just some of the things I want from my wallet. Luckily, I have found some options that are calling my name and my credit card number.
