LINK-END ROUND-UP: September 23, 2016

link-end round-up 9-23-2016

It’s the first Friday of fall and the first Link-End Round-Up for Fall 2016. Can you tell that I love the first day of things? Well, I do! Actually, I’m more happy for it finally being Friday. This week was very emotionally overwhelming. The main reason is because I finally came to terms with a lot of things that make me happy and productive due to me working on my discipline. So, in the process, I had to learn to stop doing some things that were holding me back while learning to embrace things that I needed to nurture more. It might sound a little confusing to explain, but in the end, I feel so rejuvenated and enlightened. It’s definitely been a process, but I have already felt and seen the positive effects it has made in my life for the better.

In other pressing news, the season of some of my favorite shows has returned and I finally had my first Soy Pumpkin Spice Latte of the season and it was great! However, I’m still in hot tea mode, because I still feel a cold trying to get into my life and I’m not having that with my birthday just a few days away.

So, my birthday is on Monday and I will be happily turning 35 years old. Some people dread getting older, but not me. I embrace it and enjoy it. Actually, I’m going to share more about my feelings about my birthday on Monday’s post. So, be sure to check back in on Monday to celebrate with me!

See you Monday and enjoy this week’s edition of Link-End Round-Up.

eSTYLIST: Hey Fall 2016

eStylist Hey Fall 2016

 

Yes, fall is finally here!  I love this day, even though it’s still too hot to break out my combat boots and thicker cardigans. I did have my first pumpkin spice latte of the season to commemorate this day, because I refuse to enjoy a PSL in the summer. Very appropriate, might I say. I also decided to welcome it with an estylist Hey Fall look.

My style in the fall is a mixture of layered classic colors and textures with touches of fun prints and accessories, which is featured in this edition of eStylist. Please enjoy!

Fall Morning Routine 2016

fall morning routine

It’s hard to believe that the first day of fall is tomorrow. Maybe it’s hard to believe because the weather has been very stubborn about giving us any type of cool weather. However, my yard is slowly getting filled with fallen leaves and my car has condensation on it every morning, which are clear indications that fall is here. When every season changes, my morning routine seems to follow suit and I’ve already adapted to a fall morning routine. So, thought I would share it with you this morning.

Velvet for Fall 2016

velvet for fall

It’s been a minute since I’ve bought anything velvet to wear, especially anything velvet for fall. Most people think of velvet as a winter fabric, because it’s a little heavier than most fabrics. However, not all velvet is the same and sometimes can be worn all year round. You can find some velvet pieces that are not only lighter in weight, but designed to be fall-weather friendly. Yes, even crushed velvet, my friends!

Currently, Velvet chokers are one of the hottest accessories of the moment. It’s a simple and stylish way to add some velvet to your look. However, there are countless of other easy ways to add some touches of velvet to your fall wardrobe without you  looking like you are preparing to take Christmas pictures. Trust me.

So, if are open to the idea of adding some velvet to your blossoming fall wardrobe, I found some pieces that you can easily add to your closet. Not only are these items great for fall, but you can properly layer them to make them work in the colder days of winter.

REVISITING: Revlon Colorstay Foundation

I’m in the middle of declutter some spaces in my home, including my make-up area, which has gotten overwhelming. During the process, I decided to throw away all the foundations I haven’t and don’t plan to ever use again. Unfortunately, that only left me with an almost empty bottle of a foundation that is beginning to look a little too dark on me, because my summer tan is slowly leaving me. Therefore, I did decide to take this time to revisit a foundation from my past that I used and loved, but hadn’t used in years. I decided to revisit Revlon’s Colorstay Foundation in Combination/Oily, because you know, I have oily skin. After using this foundation for a couple of weeks now, I’ve noticed a couple of new things compared to when I originally used this as my everyday foundation years ago and decided to share. Gather around!
