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

Link-End Round-Up October 20, 2017

Happy Friday! My week started off a little rocky, but once I changed my mind frame it got better. Earlier this week, I shared my plans on how to end this year on a high point. One thing I didn’t mention or elaborate on is that I want to work on be more in the moment. I have a tendency to let my mind and energy wander off to work on other things when I should focus on what I’m already working on. I think all of those years being programmed to be have the ability to multi-task has caught up with. However, that’s another conversation for another time.

I’m so excited for this weekend, because The Walking Dead finally returns on Sunday night. So, my sister and I have already planned to spend Sunday nestled on the couch binging last season. This has been out tradition for the past couple of years. We load the coffee table with snack and bottles of water while watching Rick and ’em kill so walkers. It’s almost therapeutic, at this point.

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

Link-End Round-Up October 13, 2017

Happy Friday the 13th! I’m not really into Halloween, except for the candy. However, when Friday the 13th falls in October, I feel obliged to dedicate the day to watching the first 3 Friday the 13th movies. In my opinion, all the versions after 3 are lame, but that’s just my opinion. Actually, I have a bridal shower to go to tonight that completely skipped my mind until this very moment. I guess I’ll have to postpone my Friday the 13th binge-fest until afterwards.

I’m actually looking forward to tonight, because this week has been mad stressful. Everything thing from personal stuff, work stuff, and car stuff has been stressing me out all week. I’m shocked I haven’t had a mild stroke of developed a slight addiction to recreational drugs after this week. However, I took some time to myself yesterday to meditate and do some deep prayer. I can’t lie, for a minute, I felt my faith weaken for a moment. That can happen sometimes when it seems “bad” things are happening back to back. However, like my Instagram bio says, God’s got my back. So, I know everything is going to work out for the best. I mean, things could be a lot worse.

I would love to find the time this weekend to go get a massage. Honestly, I feel I deserve one. If you deserve one, too, go get one. Treat yo’ self, sis! So, have an amazing weekend and see you next week!

eSTYLIST: Chilly Fall Day

I woke up today feeling torn. I couldn’t get some (rare) cute pictures I took this weekend to upload. Something about them being corrupt and other blah. So, I have to retake them. However, I also woke up to a forecast that features cool temperatures with a chance for sun later in the day. Needless to say, the latter helped me get over the previous emotions. Also, it looks like this cool weather is here to stay. *quick office chair twerk* So, I decided to share a chilly fall day eStylist post. Hopefully, I can finally stop dressing like I’m stuck between summer and fall.

LINK-END ROUND-UP: October 6, 2017

Link-End Round-Up Octrober 06, 2017

Finish the first week of October 2017 strong? Check.

One of the things I love about October is that it’s the final quarter of the year and the feeling of “now or never” starts to sink in me. I always feel like I work better under pressure. In college, there were plenty of times that I wrote an A+ paper the day before it was due. Don’t get me wrong, I looked and felt like crap when I turned it in, but those papers looked beautiful. Therefore, I thrive in “back against the wall” moments.

This month, I’ve challenged myself to a couple of things. One thing I challenged myself is to no fast food. I hope to accomplish a few things from this challenge; save more money, eat healthier, and to stop looking for the easy way out of a everyday need. This year, I got real comfortable doing a lot of things that shouldn’t be doing. So, that needs stop.

As for this weekend, I finally have a weekend when I don’t have anything to do, other than go to church. This lazy weekend is much needed, because last month stretched me all over the place. I don’t know when I did what last month, including my birthday. I need a drink, a nap, and to be left alone; in that order. Not to mention, all these horrible situations that have been happening. It’s time to chill and recharge my mind, body, and soul.

In the meantime, I hop you have a great weekend and find some moments to be like the fall weather and chill.

LUST-HAVE LIST: October 2017

Stained Couture’s monthly series, Lust-Have List, features items I’m wanting this month.

Lust-Have List October 2017

Here in Memphis, it sometimes takes a little longer for it to feel and look like fall. However, this weekend, it was fall and I’m here for it. For the past couple of months, I’ve been aspiring to be a little more “out there” and “extra”. I pretty much want to step outside my comfort level, which probably won’t last long. October seems like a perfect month to try something new, before you have to focus on all the annual holidays and festivities.

So, I’m starting my October feeling a little fearful, but optimistic that I’m going to learn some stuff. I love learning new stuff, especially when it’s new stuff about me. Anyway, keep reading to see the list of items I’m currently crushing on for this month.
