A few weeks ago, my skin and I were going through it bad! I was going through some career drama, which lead to stress and my skin showing the signs. So, I did what I usually do when my skin acts up; go back to the basics. I broke out my simple skincare routine and strayed away from strong ingredients. However, all of my night time moisturizers were too heavy and/or strong to use. Plus, since it’s starting to warm up, I know I didn’t want nor need anything to heavy. Enter, skin essences! Skin essences are low key a must-have for every skincare products collection, no matter your skin type. Plus the right skin essence can bring out the best in other skincare products you use.
Skin essences have become my favorite product to use and I need more. I’ve tried a couple, but have many others I want ASAP! Keep reading to see why I’m a firm believer in an essence for you skin and the ones I personally love.

This summer, like every summer, I have so many plans for my hair. However, like every summer, I fail to accomplish them. For the past couple of years, I’ve want to get everything from braids, fake dreads, to bundles to cankles. Despite me continuing to fail to get all the cute, protective styles, I do properly prepare my hair in case I do come through, one day. The main way I protect and prepare my hair is deep condition my hair weekly. My favorite deep conditioner masque that I’ve been using and loving is Eden Body Works Split End Repair Masque.

This is where I will share some of the beauty products I’m currently wanting, which will only happen a few times a year.
Now, to see what beauty products I’m wanting and that are resting in my online shopping carts, keep reading.
ITEM OF THE WEEK is a weekly series on Stained Couture that highlights a product we’re currently loving. This week: L’Oreal Sublime Bronze Gel Self-Tanner.
Every year, during the rainy days of spring, I reach a point when I want to grace the world with my chunky legs. However, due to my legs hibernating in leggings all winter, my legs look pale and pasty. Therefore, I always have to break out a self-tanner to tie me over until the sun and my legs are out consistently. This year, I decided to try a new self-tanner that I didn’t have super high hope for, but I was wrong. Like, really wrong and I had to make this self-tanner my Item of the Week. Keep reading to find out why.
Here we are, smack dab in the middle of sandal season, which lasts from mid-March to late-August or early September. Of course, this is debatable depending on your location and personal level of IDGAF attitude. Another thing that’s debatable is what nail polish color should be worn with sandals. Personally, I think you can and should wear any color you want or no polish at all. However, I tend to only switch between 3-4 different polish option.
