LUST-HAVE LIST: May 2021 | STAINED COUTURE

May is here and it actually feels like summer will be here in no time. Am I the only one that has lost a complete sense of the seasons? Out of nowhere, I started seeing prom pictures and ads for graduation gifts – all indications that summer is coming.

After last year’s lack of summer activities, I can actually say that I’m looking forward. Ya girl is trying to be outside – untoned, jiggly legs and all. I’m on the “vaxxed and waxed” vibes! Honestly, we all deserve to celebrate (still) surviving a pandemic. So, let’s all meet up outside, preferably on a patio with drinks all around.

For May, I’m in planning mode; for summer, personal goals, and overall joy. The items on this month’s Lust-Have List aren’t for everyone, but they definitely are for me. Check them out!

LIST-HAVE LIST: May 2021

  • Weighted Bangles – I wanted these Bala weighted bangles last summer, but completely forgot about them. However, now that I’m starting to try to lift weights again, these will be perfect to wear throughout the day. Plus, you can weigh them on your ankles, too. A legit need.
  • Neon Yellow Anklet – Speaking of ankles, I’ve pondering adding an anklet into my life after almost a decade. I want a real gold bracelet for my fat ankle, but want to test the waters before I buy one. The fabric ones from Pura Vida come in an array of colors and designs, including metal. However, I think starting simple with fabric is smart, plus this neon yellow will look sick when my legs finally catch a tan.
  • Technical Fabric Shopper Bag – No words; I’m just obsessed with bright yellow shopped bag from Zara. Great tote for summer.
  • Scented Candle in Holder – I think I want to start collecting unique looking candles and holders. I have a couple already and would love to add this gem from H&M Home. FYI, H&M Home as some nice and affordable home décor.
  • Tied Flat Sandals – I’m so glad that there isn’t a Zara in my city, because I would go broke in their shoe section alone. I have to but these, because these would make great everyday sandals for work. Plus, they look kinda comfy.

LINK-END ROUND-UP: April 23, 2021 | STAINED COUTURE

Happy Friday! It is Friday, right? This week was kind of a blur for me and a smidge emotional. Actually, it was emotional on Monday, because Aunt Flo was ending up her monthly visit. Also, as soon as I opened my eyes up on Monday morning, I decided to wake up and be in my feelings. I seriously spent the first half of Monday morning – while at work – feeling stressed and deep in thought. Luckily, those feelings and tears dried up by mid-day and I was back to normal.

Speaking of normal, the weather here in Memphis was not. A couple of mornings we woke up to temperatures in the 30s. WTF, Mother Nature?! I guess we should be glad that all we had were a couple of chilly days, because some parts of the country had snow. If it would have snowed, I probably would’ve drove to the nearest beach and gather my thoughts.

The weather today is supposed to be warm and cloudy with rain tomorrow. Therefore, I think it’s going to be the perfect weather for me to perch in my apartment and do some organizing. I’ve been in my new apartment for 2 months and I still have some things to do. However, the main thing that I need to do is organize my closet. My last place was 2-bedroom apartment with a large walk-in closet. My current closet is massively smaller walk-in closet and it’s been taking some time to get used to. However, once I organize it and make it more functional, I will learn to love it. Well, I hope so.

So, here’s to a chill weekend and please find a minute to read the links in the week’s Link-End Round-Up.

The Best Sunscreens According to Me

I hope y’all know that you’re supposed to wear sunscreen everyday. Please say you know that even if hot or cold and sunny or rainy – you need sunscreen. I still get annoyed that I spent the first half of my life overlooking sunscreen. I seriously used to spend hours on hours outside with no sunscreen. The fact that I still have skin and no skin cancer is proof that my God is an awesome God.However, now that I know better, I’m a huge advocate for sunscreen. There have been times when I forgot to apply sunscreen and went a bought a new one. I have at least 3 different sunscreens at home. Not to mention, I keep that thang in my car  next to my hand sanitizer. When it comes to sunscreen, I don’t play! Now look at me,  I have a list of my personal best sunscreens.

Sephora VIB Sale Spring 2021: In My Cart

A few days ago, the Sephora VIB sale started where Rouge members can get up to 20% off their order. Unfortunately, I’m not a Rouge member, but I am a VIB. So, I had to wait until yesterday to start filling up my cart to get 15% things I’ve been eyeing. Although I’m pretty confident that I won’t be getting all the items currently in there, but I feel like I need everything in there.
