Personal Rules for Makeup Wipes

Like most makeup wears, I worshiped makeup wipe removers. So much so, being able to buy them in bulk made me renew my Sam’s Club card one year. However, my love for them faded the more I learned about the cons to using them. Like with most bad habits, I started to use them again, but with rules. Yes, I created some rules for makeup wipes.

LINK-END ROUND-UP: February 15, 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: February 15, 2019 | STAINED COUTURE

Hey Friday! I hope you all had a great week and Valentine’s Day, if that’s your thing.

I had a very productive week, but the main thing I did was finally finding a new apartment. The location, price, and amenities worked perfectly for me and my life. I’m excited to have a new place for me to decorate, which I’m super excited about. Not to mention, I plan to buy all new furniture; first thing being a new bed. So, my main goal this weekend is to buy a bed and get it delivered this week.

Aside from furniture shopping, I have a pizza date with 2 of my fav friends tonight for a belated Galentine’s Day dinner. So, I plan to be spending more money that I would like this weekend, but it’s to do things I happily want to spend money.

This week was productive, but next week is going to be hectic. I know I’m going to be in and out of the office next week to meet deliveries, internet set-ups, and other things that come with moving. Wish me luck, ya’ll! However, I will still find the time to post over here on the blog, while getting my new space together.

eSTYLIST: Galentine’s Day 2019

Even if I’m single or in a relationship, I don’t really care about Valentine’s Day. The only thing I really like about the day is that all the left over candy is 50% off. Other than that, there’ s nothing to make a big deal out of, in my opinion. Although the BF will probably get a gift for Valentine’s Day, I could less. However, one thing I have been loving is the celebrating Galentine’s Day, which is using the holiday to spend with your girlfriends. The great thing about Galentine’s Day is that you don’t have to celebrate it on Valentine’s Day, but either the day before or day after. Since V-Day falls on a Thursday this year, y0u can even stretch it out to the weekend.

I’m celebrating Galentine’s Day with 2 of my favorite GFs this Friday, but we’re not sure where, yet. Sushi is usually or go-to dinner move, but we might do something different for G-Day. Although I’m not sure where we’re going, I’m pretty sure I know what I’m wearing. Well, I think I do and it will be comfortable enough to make room for carbs and wine. Looking for a cute and casual look that will for a night out with your girls? Well, keep reading to get the details on the look inspo.

LINK-END ROUND-UP: February 8, 2019 | STAINED COUTURE

Hey, Friday. *insert tired face emoji* This week? UGH!

I’ve might’ve mentioned this over here and/or one of my social media accounts, but I’m really trying live an abundantly grateful life. I know I’m grateful for a lot of things, but I don’t show it as much as I would like. This week was a true test to my gratefulness. Actually, the last couple of weeks have been, because I found myself giving more of my energy to the “bad” things instead of the everyday good. I was a little taken back, because that is so NOT me.

I’m the person that always look for the silver-lining in every “bad” situation and have faith that everything will work out in the end. However, the past couple of weeks, I was casually acknowledging the good (i.e. confirmation of job security), but giving all my emotions to the bad (i.e. minor relationship issues). It wasn’t until this past Wednesday that I realized what I was doing, which stopped me right in my tracks. Not even buying the MILK Cosmetics lip balm off my February Lust-Have List made me feel better.

Now, it might’ve taken me a glass of wine and catching up on How To Get Away With Murder to do, but I was able to reverse this temporary mindset. Now, I’m all about yelling about all the good going on in my life to drown out the not so good, because I know it will all work itself out in the end. I’m so grateful!

Here’s to fulfilling weekend and let’s chat some more next week!
