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

Kind of hard to believe that this is the last LERU of the month. For me, April, I did a lot of preparations for things. I did a major closet purge, finished a couple of books that were living on my nightstand for way to long, and I also laid the groundwork for some projects I’ve been putting off too long. So, I feel that I all of these things will help a lot of this flourish for me in May. Well, that’s what I hope will happen.

Since I was sick last week during my vacation days, I have some things to make up for this weekend. Last week, I had a list of activities planned for me to experience, but I will try to do one or two of those this weekend. For the most part, I have some more purging to do while finding other ways to refresh my home for spring. Hopefully, I will run across the perfect big leaf plant for my living room. That room is just begging for a big plant.

Also, I want to finally hit my first farmer’s market of the season. It’s been open for a few weeks now and I’ve yet to go. So, I plan to get up pretty early tomorrow and take my bags in hopes to score some fresh veggies. I want to make a vegetable soup and fresh vegetables make the best soup. It’s a fact!

In the meantime, I hope you have an amazing weekend and let’s chat some more next week!

Shoes From Zara That I Want Right Now

One of the things I do when I’m bored is browse shoes from Zara. Zara shoes are breath-taking for multiple reasons. The main reason I love them is because they are unique, well-designed, and affordable AF! If those aren’t good enough reasons, I don’t know what to tell you.

At most times, there are usually 10-15 different shoes on Zara’s website that I stalk. Unfortunately, when me and my budget decide it’s the perfect time to buy, my size is usually sold out. Once your size is sold out on Zara, it’s safe to assume you won’t be buying that shoe anytime soon. Although I might be shooting myself in the foot, I decided to share the shoes from Zara that I’m currently crushing on that are still available in my size. Ugh.

Powder Face Masks

For the past few days, I’ve been sick with one of those stuffy head, itchy throat, and sip hot tea all day types of colds. It was horrible. Not to mention that it was during my scheduled vacation days from work. Despite some occasional coughing, I’m back to about 90%. So, to help feel better, last night I decided to reward my skin and give it a facial. After browsing the vast collection of face masks, I decided to use the Aztec Secret Indian Clay. I’ve only used this mask once, but can’t remember why. Probably, because powder face masks aren’t as quick as the sheet masks that I’ve been boo-ed up with for the past year or so.

Powder versions of skincare products are still fairly new, including powder face cleansers. However, powder face mask are started to gain traction. No matter your skin type or issues, there is a powder face mask out there for you.

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

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 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.
