First off, I’m currently battling a allergies-induced head cold. Out of the ways to be sick, nasal congestion is the worst one. The feeling of not being about to breathe out of your nose is horrible. Not to mention, I’ve been sick these past 3 days that I’ve been off. Fortunately, I felt it coming and went into instant combat mode. So, this head cold could be a lot worst than this.

No plans for the weekend, as of now. I might finally venture out to find a pot for the new plant in my bedroom. I’m love it, FYI. Anyway, I hope you all have a good weekend and prevent any allergies sickness yourself.

See you next week and enjoy this week’s Link-End Round-Up.

Refresh Your Bedroom For Spring

For the past couple of months, I’ve been experiencing some lower back pain. This was the ultimate tell-tale sign that I need to buy a new mattress. Other than car shopping, I hate mattress shopping. I don’t care if everyone else is doing it, bouncing around on various mattresses in a soft lit showroom is awkward. Yet, for the sake of my health, I have to buy a new mattress. Luckily, thanks to online mattress companies like Leesa, mattress shopping is not as stressful as it used to be for me. Since I’m buying a new mattress, I decided to also look into ways to refresh my whole bedroom. I’ve been pondering and pinning some ideas on how I’m looking to refresh my bedroom. If you’re also looking to refresh your bedroom for spring, this post is for you.

Lazy Ways to Remove Makeup

We all have those moments when we feel too exhausted to wash our face to remove our makeup. I’ve been in that position far too many times that I would like. However, I recently found some lazy ways to remove makeup after a long day and decided to share.

Please note, if possible, please thoroughly wash your face every night. This will help prevent breakouts, spread bacteria from your face to sleeping areas, and way more other reasons. However, these lazy beauty techniques are easy to do from the comfort of your bed or in front of your TV, which is where I tend to do this. Plus, they do a pretty good job or removing your makeup and cleansing your face.

I don’t know about you, but I’m so glad this weekend is finally here. This week has been a busy blur for me. Work has been so hectic that I’ve barely had enough time to just plop on my sofa to veg and binge watch shows that have been accumulating on my DVR. However, one thing I started watching on Wednesday was Netflix’s 13 Reasons Why. I’ve only watched the first 2 episodes, but I’m hooked. So, my plan is to that tomorrow.

This weekend, it’s also Easter Sunday. I’m trying to decide if I should buy me a new outfit to wear to church on Sunday. I don’t need to, but I always try to embrace moments that can justify buying new clothes. If I do, I would love to find a 2-piece outfit in pretty pastel color.

In the meantime, I hope you all have a wonderful Easter weekend!

Nightstand Books #1

Books have always been a love of mine, even when I stopped reading as much as I used to read. However, I always have a book within reach. For example, I usually have between 4-5 different books on my nightstand. Some of these books are books I’m currently reading, next in line to read, and books that I read for moments of motivation. So, I decided to share my current nightstand books.

The book I’m currently reading and almost done with is the Anti 9-5 Guide: Practical Career Advice for Women Who Think Out The Cube. That’s such a long title for a small book.  I’ve been slowly reading this book for the past few months. However, don’t let that deter you from thinking that this book sucks, because it’s pretty good. It gives straight the point tips and ideas on how you can break away from you everyday 9-5 job. This book is loaded with advice from different women who have been able to break out away from the cubicle life. I only have a couple of chapters left, but I think I’m actually going to try to finish this up by this weekend.
