Oh, hey weekend and hey new Link-End Round-Up! I hope you had a good week, because mine was fairly decent. Luckily, nothing traumatic happened that made me contemplate my life/sanity. However, my brain has been churning with some ideas and luckily a friend of mine had the same churning going on in her brain. So, we decided to join forces and see what happens. So far, everything is going great and on track! *fingers crossed*
My plans for this weekend is all about enjoying life and doing some pampering and self improvement. First stop is getting my nails done. My natural nails have finally grown to a length that I can start getting gel overlay again. I just can’t deal with nail tips anymore. I used to be addicted to getting a full set when I was in high school on up to just a few years ago. However, once I learned to stop biting my nails and taking care of my real nails properly, it’s so much better to get a overlay. It’s so much easier on your nails. Now, I just need to decide on which shade. Hmm…
On Sunday, my sister, one of our friends, and I are going to take a quick overnight trip to the casino. Just to get a little breather from the city and hopefully make a few bucks, but the main reason is to get a quick bout of relaxation and fun wrapped into one quick 45 minute trip. It’s needed at this point, because we haven’t had a girl’s excursion since earlier this year. Also, we might be hoping to find some Pokemon…might. Yeah, my sister and I have become Pokemon Go fans, but yet fanatics. However, it could still happen.
In the meantime, I hope you have a great weekend, avoid the heat as much as possible while out playing Pokemon Go!, and don’t forget to stop by next week!

Although I’m in my 30s, I’ve experienced quite a few first this year, including completing fast. However, having to wear glasses for my vision has been the biggest thing on the list. Considering that intense vision problems run in my family, I’m very happy that I was able to prolong it this long. When it comes to adding new and important things into your life, you have to learn how to take care of them and taking care of your glasses is a very important thing that you need to learn to do.

Other than focusing on having a clear complexion, I’m borderline obsessed with making sure my skin is naturally glowing and bright. I recently tried Ole Henriksen’s POWER Bright treatment for bright skin and was amazed by the almost instant results.
If you follow me on Instagram, you might’ve seen my picture featuring some products that I recently received from Ole Henriksen. One of said products was the POWER bright three step brightening treatment. The treatment contains an unprecedented 25% vitamin C concentrate, which explains the instant gratification of brighter and clearer skin after one use. Intriguing and interest peaked.

It’s Friday and time for this week’s Link-End Round-Up. After the uneasiness I had with current state of my country last week, I’m glad that that uneasiness is slowly turning into optimism. Even though I know it’s going to be a long battle, at least the battle is happening.
In good news, my skin has been popping and glowing like crazy recently. It’s probably a combination of me cutting out dairy (again), drinking more water, and some new skincare products that I recently introduced into my regimen. It’s still a little too early in the process to divulge, but I will fill you in very soon. I’m obsessed with skincare products and tips. If you have any, please pass them along int the comment section.
In the meantime, please have a safe weekend by controlling your happiness and helping others embrace their happiness, too! Have a great weekend and see you next week!

Have you ever ran pass a brand and instantly become obsessed with every single item they have and decided that you need (at least) one of everything they make? Well, that’s how I felt when I saw Grafea bags. Seriously, I want one of each. Not only that, but I feel like I’ve come down with a serious case of FOMO (fear of missing out), because it seems like everyone knew about this brand, but me!
In case you are like me and hadn’t heard about Grafea handbags, here’s a little 411….
