ITEM OF THE WEEK: Scar Cream for your Face | STAINED COUTURE

A couple of weeks ago, my skin went to Pimple Fest Summer 2019. I had every type of pimple, including cystic. So, I used a simple skincare routine of oil-free foaming face wash and gentle face toner. However, there was one product that helped my skin in more ways than one and that was Good Skin Corrective Scar Cream.

LINK-END ROUND-UP: September 13, 2019

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

LINK-END ROUND-UP: September 13, 2019 | STAINED COUTURE

Happy Friday – Friday the 13th! When I was child, this day used to scare me – based solely off the movie. Oh, and the urban myths. LOL at the times I avoided stepping on a crack while walking to school. As an adult, Friday the 13th involves be laying in bed watching Friday the 13th movie while drinking wine. It’s definitely a vibe.

Tomorrow, I plan to stay at home all morning to do some deep cleaning; hair and home. Also, most Saturdays, I go to my sister house in the morning – I bring breakfast and we catch up on Big Brother. However, this weekend is Southern Heritage Classic, which causes the traffic to be an absolute headache – ALL DAY! So, I already told her not to expect to see me. *Kanye Shrug*

Not to mention, it’s too hot to be outside for long, which is why I’m not going to the Cooper-Young Festival. I really wanted to go, but again there’s horrible traffic. Bad traffic is an automatic cancel for me – most of the time.

Although I plan to have a lazy weekend, I hope you all have an enjoyable one, too. Also, I hope you enjoy this week’s Link-End Round-Up, too.

Shoes You Need For Fall 2019

So, I’ve been slowly easing myself into fall things, such as adding pumpkin flavors to my coffee. I even pondered buying a pumpkin-scented candle, but that felt too soon. However, I do feel like this is the perfect time to start trying to decide what styles I’m gravitating to this fall. So, let’s start with shoes you need for fall. Well, shoes I need for fall.

LINK-END ROUND-UP: September 6, 2019

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

Happy Friday, friends!

So, am I the only one that feels like this didn’t feel like a short week? Since I had a long and busy holiday weekend, I was so exhausted when I went to work on Tuesday. Plus, I was welcomed back with over 3,000 emails – most were spam. Nonetheless, I’m so happy to see Friday again. Yes, Lord!

I’m craving a weekend in with no plans, but this ain’t the weekend. Tomorrow afternoon, I have a meeting then church that evening. Sunday, church in the morning and a baby shower in the afternoon. So, another long, but fulfilling weekend.

Oh, I forgot to acknowledge that it’s September – one of my favorite months. September brings my birthday, my nephew’s (1st) birthday, and the beginning of Fall. Although summer heat isn’t letting up, I’m still ready for fall. *whispers*I’ve even had some pumpkin spice pumps in my iced coffee. Shhh.

Not to mention, I’m so ready to start adding some fall vibes to my living space. However, I’ll wait to break out the fall colors and pumpkin smells until the weather cools down. I can’t enjoy fall smells while wiping sweat off my upper lip.

In the meantime, I hope you check out some of my favorite things I read online this week.
