LINK-END ROUND-UP: September 21, 2018 | STAINED COUTURE

Oh…hey, Friday! I’m so glad to see you!

My week has been a bag full of mixed emotions that included sadness, stress, but some bouts of happiness. I’ve rapidly approached crunch time in regards to needing to get the ball rolling on me moving within in the next month or so. Ugh…I hate having things in the air, because I don’t know what to catch first.

My birthday is next week, Wednesday to be exact, and I haven’t the vaguest idea of how I’m going to spend it. First of all, I’m probably not going to work, but that’s all I know for now. I might treat myself to a nice breakfast, a new skincare product, or fun accessory. Whatever, I’ll play it by ear, as usual.

As for this weekend? Oh, just another smorgasbord of random things I have to do on Saturday. Tomorrow is also the first day of fall and I’m so giddy. Although it’s supposed to be warm and rainy, it’s still going to officially be fall. However, on Sunday, I plan to be in a vegetative state on my sofa watching football and Hallmark channel movies. Jealous? I know.

I hope we all have a great and prosperous weekend and share more stuff next week.

TIPSY THURSDAY: Punta Cana

Tipsy Thursday is dedicated to sharing a cocktail recipe for all of us 21+ to enjoy. This week cocktail is Punta Cana

TIPSY THURSDAY: Punta Cana Cocktail | STAINED COUTURE

Although the first day of Fall is this weekend, I’m not sure if I’m ready to give up all the great stuff from summer. One thing I’m still leaning on are fruity, tropical drinks that remind me of  a tropical getaway. One drink that screams “You should be on a beach sipping me!” is the Punta Cana cocktail. Punta Cana is named after a popular resort town in the Dominican Republic.  Made with rum, passion fruit juice, and lemon juice; the Punta Cana is the tropical getaway we all deserve in the form of a drink. All I want to do is lay on a beach, curly hair in the breeze, and sipping on this drink right about now.

Keep reading to see how to makes this easy drink and enjoy it while welcoming in fall on Saturday.

Before I delve into the steps I use and suggest when transitioning skincare to fall from summer, I need to get something off my chest *clears throat* Where is the fall weather?! Mother Nature, sis, why are you so late with the consistently cool temps and ground full of leaves?

I ready for the weather to match my desires to wear booties, oversized plaid shirts, and cardigans. I’m over this balls hot weather!! Now, back to our scheduled post.

Link-End Round-Up: September 14, 2018 | STAINED COUTURE

Happy Friday! Well, this weekend crept up on your girl. I spent most of the week being a emotional wreck thanks to “Aunt Flo” being in town. However, homegirl has left and it’s back to business. The business for this weekend is to take my sister to go a car seat, because my upcoming nephew might be making an early arrival. So, I did say that I would buy a car seat as a baby shower gift and I’m already not looking forward to it. I don’t mind buying cute little outfits and some diapers, but when it comes to the cribs, strollers, and car seats? Oh, I’m not in the mood, but I will have to be this weekend. #Pray4Me

Another thing I want to start this weekend is decorating for fall. Many people don’t know this about me, but I love decorating my home for fall. I don’t even enjoy decorating for Christmas as much as I enjoy decorating for Fall. The main reason I enjoy it so much is because it mainly involves me creating cozy nooks and warm scented candles. I just love it so much!

Here’s to a lovely weekend in preparation for amazing week! Let’s chat some more next week.

All The Jelly Makeup I Want To Try for Fall

Despite the heat this summer, I spent some time playing around with all the makeup that’s been cluttered on my desk. It was fun to break out from my comfort of foundation, liquid liner, and nuetral lip. It also made me want to experiment more with makeup. However, not with just different products and color, but also textures like jelly makeup.
