LINK-END ROUND-UP: February 24, 2017

link-end round-up february 24, 2017

Ready for this week’s Link-End Round-Up? Well, it’s here and I just realized that this is the last Link-End Round-Up for February.

The weather this week has been, for the most part, beautiful. Although I know it’s not a good thing for us to be experience late spring and early summer weather, I’m loving it! Seriously, yesterday, it was sunny and got up into the low 80s. It’s still February, people!

Despite the pleasant weather this week, the temperatures are going to dip a little this weekend. Therefore, I think this is going to be a perfect time to start in spring cleaning and getting rid of some stuff. I was watching this documentary, Happiness, on Netflix that’s all about living a minimalist life. You might recall that I’ve tried living a minimalist life before and I still do, in a way. However, I realized that I have some things in my life that I no longer need or use. So, it’s time to assess my possessions and decide what to keep or delete from my life. Wish me luck!

Hopefully, next week I will get back to posting consistently. I’m working on training myself to stick to a time each morning to blog. Up until a couple of months ago, I was working on blogs while at work. However, now I have readjust how I use my time. Deciding when and where to work on blogging is at the top of my list. I’m getting there.

I’ll see you next week and enjoy these reads that interested me this past week.

REVIEW: Cantu Dry Co-Wash Shampoo

cantu dry co-wash shampoo

Personally, I love dry shampoo, because it has helped me prolong hairstyles, tie me over until I can wash my hair, and added volume to dull hair. For those reason, dry shampoo is an ultimate lazy girl beauty product. However, it’s been hard finding a dry shampoo to use to refresh and revive my thick, naturally curly hair. Therefore, when stoked when I saw this Cantu Dry Co-Wash Shampoo.

As someone who switches between wearing my hair straightened and naturally curly, I’ve acquired multiple products for each style. I wish I could have a streamlined list of products I can use and enjoy no matter how I wear my hair. Unfortunately, those mythical products are hard to come across, but that doesn’t stop me from looking. This wishful looking is what led me to buy and try Cantu Dry Co-Wash Shampoo.

Lace-Up Ballet Flats

It’s almost ballet flats season. Well, ballet flats work all year and in different styles. Last year, it was all about ballet flats with laser design cutouts and thin lace-up. However, this season, it’s all about the look of traditional ballet flats with solid flat shoes and wide ribbons to lace-up up your ankle.

Ballet flats are shoe staples, because they are cute and comfortable. Other than being super comfortable, another great thing about ballet flats is that they are very versatile.You can pair them with dresses, short, or add a feminine look to your favorite well-worn boyfriend style jeans.

Although the lace-up ballet flats have the traditional style and design of ballet flats, they are available in different colors, fabrics, and textures. Personally, I’m crushing a pair of velvet ones, myself.

If you would like to get in on the lace-up ballet flats fun, check out these options I found that are not only cute and comfortable, but also very affordable.

LINK-END ROUND-UP: February 17, 2017

link-end round-up

After a semi-quick week, I’m bringing you another late edition of Link-End Round-Up. I must admit that I’m a little off, because I took yesterday and today off. All day, I kept thing that today was Saturday instead of Friday, which caused me to be super lazy. Actually, I was supposed to get my hair done this afternoon, but my stylist/friend got sick. So, we’ve rescheduled it for Saturday morning. The grey strands in my hair have to go.

After my appointment, we have a pizza lunch date our other friend. I’ve been trying decrease my intake of caffeine and dairy. I’ve been pretty good on the caffeine part, but I’ve had a lot of cheese the past couple of days. Now that I think about it, these might be the reason my skin has broken out. After today, I might go cold turkey on cheese, again.

In the meantime, I hope you all have a great weekend and I’ll catch you next week. 🙂

Holographic Bags for Spring

holographic bags

One of the things that I’ve always been mesmerized by is holographic bags. I’m not sure, but my love of holographic bags might stem from my childhood addiction to Gem and the Holograms. I’m talking about the cartoon NOT that horrific real life movie they put out last year, which I’m still salty about.

Anyway, holographic accessories are my favorite way to add some to my adult wardrobe without it being to teen bop or faux futuristic. While doing my usual daily online window shopping, I noticed that there are some pretty amazing holographic purse and bags out there. Is holographic going to be in for spring? If so, I’m in!

Let’s get into these fabulous holographic bags I spotted.
