LINK-END ROUND-UP: September 25, 2020

Happy Friday! Although it’s Friday, it’s also my birthday eve. Yep, tomorrow is your girl’s birthday and I’m having so many mixed feelings. Despite me not really caring about my birthday in the past, this year is going to be different. Well, it was supposed to be different when I saw that my birthday actually fell on a Saturday this year. When I realized that at the beginning of the year, I took it as a sign that I should do the most for my birthday. I was even thinking of becoming one of those people that celebrate their birthday all month.

However, coronavirus came and blew out the excitement that I had, but it’s okay. Actually, I’m still excited for my birthday being on a Saturday, because I can easily go drive around the city collecting my free birthday rewards from different places without worrying about being late for work.

Other than the round up of free goods and inhaling a potential deadly amount of cake – no big birthday plans for me. After this year, I’m just grateful that I was able to make it to see my birthday. I hope you enjoy the reads in this week’s Link-End Round-Up.

Benefits of Peptides in Skincare

Last summer,  was an adventurous one for me – good and bad. However, one of the good things was discovering peptides. The benefits of peptides in skincare products have been one of my latest obsessions for the past year. I was first introduced via a moisturizer and I haven’t looked back since. If it has “peptides” on the package, I’m going to pick it up and probably buy it, too.

eSTYLIST: Fall 2020 Look | STAINED COUTURE

Fall is finally here and I’m over the moon about it! I had a real bad case of the “Mondays” on Monday and felt irritable for most of day. However, I feel so much better yesterday and didn’t realize why, but I like to think it’s because my favorite season is here.

Fall encompasses everything I live for in a season; cool weather, cozy looks, and the beginning of the holiday seasons. Not to mention, my birthday falls in Fall, too. Here in Memphis, the fall weather ran up on us to quick that I didn’t have the chance to finalize my Fall 2020 vibes. Still, I’m ready for sweaters, textures, chunky boots, and fitted trousers. That’s the aesthetic that I’m learning toward this fall.

So, check out my vision in my Fall 2020 eSTYLIST look:

eSTYLIST: Fall 2020 Look

  • Burgundy Crew Neck Cardigan – One of my favorite colors for fall and winter is burgundy. However, I don’t have a burgundy cardigan, which is one of the fall things I don’t own. Time to change that this year.
  • Plus Size Fitted Plaid Ankle Pants – This year, I’m all about straight leg and skinny printed trousers. These from Forever 21 are perfect.
  • Snake-embossed Combat Boots – How insanely good are these combats?! Personally, I don’t think i have enough cute combat boots and these snake-embossed ones are definitely good.
  • Animal Print Leather Crossbody – A brown faux animal print leather purse is the only person you need to add to your fall wardrobe. I stand 10 toes down to that statement.

LINK-END ROUND-UP: September 4, 2020 | STAINED COUTURE

Happy Friday, folks! Also, it’s a 3-day weekend for most of us here in the US. Monday is Labor Day, FYI. I really don’t have in set plans this weekend except to rest my tired muscles. Recently, I decided to commit to doing more strength training, but too much. I did challenge and commit myself to do a something everyday. Sometimes I’ll do about 15 minutes in the morning and/or evening, but I do it everyday.

Since September is my birthday month, the main gift I wanted to give myself is to treat myself better. However, this is not just physically, but also mentally and emotionally. I will say, for the most part, I have a good emotion and mental relationship with myself. Still, I need to be more mindful of the things and people that are in my life. So, that’s what I’m doing now.

Thankfully, I have an amazing, supportive, and small group of friends and family. So, I want to make sure I continue to tend and nurture those relationships. Doing great with those by the way.

I hope everyone has a great extended weekend. Also, I know it’s a holiday weekend and people like to gather. However, remember that we are still in the middle of a pandemic – keep your distance and wear your mask. Also, don’t forget your sanitizer and favorite SPF.
