All The Jelly Makeup I Want To Try for Fall

Despite the heat this summer, I spent some time playing around with all the makeup that’s been cluttered on my desk. It was fun to break out from my comfort of foundation, liquid liner, and nuetral lip. It also made me want to experiment more with makeup. However, not with just different products and color, but also textures like jelly makeup.

ITEM OF THE WEEK: Coconut & Monoi Deep Moisture Balm | STAINED COUTURE

A few weeks, during one of Walgreens BOGO half off hair products sales, I picked up 2 products from Design Essentials. Both products are from the Design Essentails Natural Coconut & Monoi line, which my colored, natural hair seems to enjoy. I picked up 2 products from the line that I haven’t tried before for my hair. Although both products were for my hair, one of the products has been helping more than just my hair. The Coconut & Monoi Deep Moisture Balm is a moisturizing balm for hair AND skin. After using this balm for a couple of weeks, I feel like I use it more on my skin than my hair.

Beauty Products I Buy In Bulk

I’m a bit of a creature of habit, but I’m just now honing some the characteristics. Part of being a creature of habit is finding something that works for you and keep it going. For instance, I recently decided that I would now only buy black under garments. I came to this conclusion, because I realize that black goes with everything. Not to mention, I can’t think of many reasons to own frilly baby undies, except for show. Anyway, most habits are created to make your life easier and/or happier, which can also include items. So, when I find an item that I love, I have a tendency to buy it in multiples. For instance, there are plenty of beauty products that I buy in bulk – at least 3 at a time.

Either way, the purchases are not a waste of money and give me one less thing to worry about. To see what beauty products I buy in bulk, keep reading.

IOTW: Revlon Kiss Exfoliating Lip Balm | STAINED COUTURE

Although I’m a blogger and like to share products that I think you might enjoy, I can be skeptical when other people recommend products. On social media, especially, I can be a little skeptical when an “influencer” shares and recommend a product. Unfortunately, it can be hard to decipher if they really like it and/or they really like the money they got paid to share it. However, there are some bloggers and/or influencers that I really trust, because they are authentic and trustworthy.

If it wasn’t for a fellow blogger that I trust and following for sharing this product, I wouldn’t have thought to buy it. Not only did I buy it, but I fell so in love with it that it’s this week’s Item of the Week! Keep reading to see why.

Creating an Extra AF Shower Routine

I love taking a nice, perfectly warm shower, no matter the time of day. In the morning, I  use my shower time to refresh and clear my mind for the upcoming day. However, when I take a shower at night, I use it rest my mind and body and to help me slip into slumber easier. For most people, taking a shower is just a daily routine to clean their body. However, for me, I use my shower routine to elevate and transform a daily activity to an extra AF experience.
