Happy Friday, Friends! Hope you had a great week. I was very much M.I.A. this week, because I had a lot going on since we last spoke. Over the last few years, September has become a hectic month for me. When I was growing up, the only thing that was going on in September was Labor Day and my birthday. Now, I share my birthday month with the anniversay of my mom’s death (17th) and 3 of 4 my nephews have birthdays this month – 16th, 21st, and 22nd. So, as you can see, I had a lot going on over the past week. Honorable Mention: I took a mini road trip with my sister and her BFF on Friday.

Despite all these new notable dates in September, the best is still saved for last – my birthday! Yes, my birthday is on Monday (September 26) and I don’t have anything planned, as usual. I’m not one of those people that make a big to- do about their birthday. That’s probably a good thing, because I would be upset having to share my month. lol Although I’m not one to make a big commotion about my birthday, I do try to grab all the freebies I can. I already got my Ulta birthday gift, but I forgot to get my Sephora birthday gift on this past Monday. I guess another Sephora trip is happening next week, because I did forget a couple of things.

This weekend will be chill, but I do plan to hit up Krispy Kreme to get my free dozen of donuts. As usual, I’ll eat just 2 and leave the rest at my sister’s house for her and her family to devour on my behalf. In the meantime, please try to read as many of the reads in this week’s Link-End Round-Up. There are some good ones in here!

What’s In My Sephora Cart

September is my birthday month! Yes, I am one of those people that live for collecting all my free birthday gifts from stores that offer. One store’s birthday gift that I’m always looking forward to is Sephora. I love that they have deluxe samples of best sellers and options! I love options! Although I’m not which Sephora birthday gift 2022 I want, there are some items in my Sephora Cart waiting on me.

Happy Friday, peeps! What a week it has been for me. In case you didn’t know, I’m a born and raised Memphian and my city has been hurting for the past couple of weeks. This week in particular has been extremely rough and broadcast across the country and even globally. We, as a city and community, need prayers and healing. With everything going on added to the daily stresses of life, my anxiety and stress was at a peak this week. I’m going to be honest, I was scared for me on Wednesday, because my heart rate was insane. Although, I know it was mostly due to a very stressful workday, it was scary.

Thankfully, I was able to get it back to normal before I got home and the city had to go on lockdown. This was supposed to be my meatless week, but I caved for some comfort food in the form of tacos. Was it the best health decision? Of course not, but did it make me feel a smidge better? Yep. I can always start over when needed, which is what I did.

Honestly, I’m just super grateful for everything and everyone in my life! Another thing I’m grateful for is the football season kicking off last night. I seriously can’t wait to spend Sunday loafing on my sofa watching football. I’m so excited because it just helps remind me that is almost here!

Have a great weekend and enjoy this week’s Link-End Round-Up reads!
