LINK-END ROUND-UP: January 12, 2018

Stained Couture’s weekly series, Link-End Round-Up, features interesting reads I read from around the internet this week.

Link-End Round-Up January 12, 2018

I’m so over this week. This week wasn’t bad or stressful, but it wasn’t very productive. I did a lot of talking and collaborating, but everything fell flat in the end. Not to mention, the weather has been very gloomy and unseasonable warm. Well, up until today, which is 30 degrees colder than yesterday. We even got some slight winter weather, which should be gone by the end of the day. *fingers crossed*

My plans for this weekend are very chill; literally and figuratively. Since the cold weather is back for awhile, I plan to get back into hibernation mode on the weekends. I’m telling you, streaming my life away in my warm bed with thermos of hot coffee or chai tea latte has been my go-to vibe this winter.

Hopefully, next week I will feel and be a little more productive, because it wasn’t popping this week. Still, I hope you all have an awesome weekend and check back next week to see if I get it together.

Gazing at Starry Styles

Last summer, I scored a cream peplum top covered in gold stars, which is one of my favorite tops. Ever since then, I’ve been obsessed with anything emblazoned with stars. Not to mention, there are a lot of star covered items out there. Starry styles are whimsical, my new favorite print, and I need more. One of the good things about all over prints like this is that you can keep everything else minimal. However, you can also go star crazy and I won’t judge.

Starry Styles

Since my only star covered item is a thin peplum top, think I should I should get a warmer item that I can wear in the colder months. I found a lot of cute star covered items and even though I want them all, I cant’. However, if you think a star covered anything should be in your life and closet, keep reading.

Bar Soaps For Your Face

One of the first things you are told to never do to your skin is to use a bar soap. The main reason why is because bar soaps made your skin look and feel dry. This can be very true, but only depends on the type of soap you used.
