LINK-END ROUND-UP: September 22, 2017

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 22, 2017

Is this seriously the last LERU of September?! Man, September came and is going fast. However, I’m not complaining, because fall is officially here as of today. Ya’ll, fall is may favorite season and I’m so happy it’s back. Unfortunately, the cool, crisp fall weather is running a little behind, but a cool front is on the way. Come on light cardigan, plaid tops, and cute booties weather.

Last night was the first night of my church’s yearly women’s conference, Zoe Conference, which is a 3 day event for women to come together and celebrate each other and all the things God has planned for us. It’s one of the events I look forward to each year, because I always leave feeling empowered and appreciative of everything in my life and what’s to come. Who wouldn’t want that feeling?

Today is night 2, which is usually followed by a super lit (do the kids still say this?) after party that includes DJ-ed music, a dance floor, and food trucks. So, needless to say, I’m looking forward to tonight.

After tonight, my weekend will be back to “pretty chill” with hours spent loafing on the sofa binge watching Game of Thrones. I’m halfway through season 6 and I’m so mad it took me seven seasons to get catch on to this wave (Again, do the kids still say this?). It’s so good!

I hope you have an amazing weekend and let’s chat some more next week.

Kitten Heels Are Back, but Why?

I like trends, because they’re fun and easy to get into. Also fast fashion stores create cheap options at an alarming rate now a days. However, one trend that I’m having the hardest time getting on board with are kitten heels. Yes, kitten heels are back from Lord knows where to give our calf muscles a break from 4 inch heels. Although they look way more comfortable to walk around in than high heels, they can look a little too dated.

However, after looking around the interwebs, I did stumble across some a few shoes with a kitten heel that didn’t make roll my eyes at the notion that these were coming back. Actually, I might buy a pair, to test them out. Keep reading to see the kitten heels I found that I would consider wearing.

Project 62 from Target is Home Goals

This past weekend, I found myself at the last place my wallet wants to go; Target. If you’ve been in a Target recently, you might notice all the new changes they are making, including new lines. Last month, they released some new fashion lines and yesterday they finally released their new home line Project 62. This weekend, I was able to see some of the pieces firsthand, because they were on display. I didn’t see everything, but what I did see was amazing.

Of course, I left the area ASAP with visions of what I want from the line to add to my home and living spaces. Keep reading to see my selections from the new Project 62 line.

Furry Purses I Want To Rub

As much as I love fall and the fall style, it can be a little boring. However, the accessories for fall can be fun and unique. Recently, I’ve been into furry bags. All of these furry purses not only look pretty, but feel soft and sexy.

I mentioned furry bags for fall a couple of years ago, but they are still working for this season, too. Keep reading to see my picks for bags that look super soft and furry.

Link-End Round-Up September 15, 2017

So glad that it’s finally Friday. Last week was an absolute stress fest, because it was super hectic. This week, my productivity had a hard time peaking. I even took a personal day on Wednesday to just chill. Recently, I my daily and weekly schedule got a little shake up, which isn’t bad. However, there were too many shakeups and I finally realized that I one has to give. So, I’m trying to work that out with the other people involved to find a common ground. Hopefully, we will be able to work that out this weekend. *fingers crossed*

Speaking of this weekend, there are so many things happening this weekend around Memphis. All of the fall festivals and fairs are happening, but introvert me is just trying to get in and out of Sephora to test the Fenty Beauty foundations. I hope they have my shade left. I would’ve ordered it online, but I believe in trying new foundations out in person. Unfortunately, I just haven’t had the time to go this week, but I have to do it this weekend. Also, I need to find a new eyelash curler. Well, I need to invest in a better one and leaning towards the Kevyn Aucoin eyelash curler. All the reviews I read online makes me believe this is the one my straight lashes need.

Hopefully, I will get more comfortable with my new schedule by the end of next week. I can’t complain, because I wanted my life to get uncomfortable. Getting uncomfortable stirs up new things in your life. So, this might be a good thing…eventually.

Here’s to an amazing weekend and let’s chat some more next week.
