LINK-END ROUND-UP: September 13, 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: September 13, 2019 | STAINED COUTURE

Happy Friday – Friday the 13th! When I was child, this day used to scare me – based solely off the movie. Oh, and the urban myths. LOL at the times I avoided stepping on a crack while walking to school. As an adult, Friday the 13th involves be laying in bed watching Friday the 13th movie while drinking wine. It’s definitely a vibe.

Tomorrow, I plan to stay at home all morning to do some deep cleaning; hair and home. Also, most Saturdays, I go to my sister house in the morning – I bring breakfast and we catch up on Big Brother. However, this weekend is Southern Heritage Classic, which causes the traffic to be an absolute headache – ALL DAY! So, I already told her not to expect to see me. *Kanye Shrug*

Not to mention, it’s too hot to be outside for long, which is why I’m not going to the Cooper-Young Festival. I really wanted to go, but again there’s horrible traffic. Bad traffic is an automatic cancel for me – most of the time.

Although I plan to have a lazy weekend, I hope you all have an enjoyable one, too. Also, I hope you enjoy this week’s Link-End Round-Up, too.

LINK-END ROUND-UP: September 6, 2019

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

Happy Friday, friends!

So, am I the only one that feels like this didn’t feel like a short week? Since I had a long and busy holiday weekend, I was so exhausted when I went to work on Tuesday. Plus, I was welcomed back with over 3,000 emails – most were spam. Nonetheless, I’m so happy to see Friday again. Yes, Lord!

I’m craving a weekend in with no plans, but this ain’t the weekend. Tomorrow afternoon, I have a meeting then church that evening. Sunday, church in the morning and a baby shower in the afternoon. So, another long, but fulfilling weekend.

Oh, I forgot to acknowledge that it’s September – one of my favorite months. September brings my birthday, my nephew’s (1st) birthday, and the beginning of Fall. Although summer heat isn’t letting up, I’m still ready for fall. *whispers*I’ve even had some pumpkin spice pumps in my iced coffee. Shhh.

Not to mention, I’m so ready to start adding some fall vibes to my living space. However, I’ll wait to break out the fall colors and pumpkin smells until the weather cools down. I can’t enjoy fall smells while wiping sweat off my upper lip.

In the meantime, I hope you check out some of my favorite things I read online this week.

LUST-HAVE LIST: September 2019

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

LUST-HAVE LIST: September 2019 | STAINED COUTURE

It’s September, which is also my birthday month! September is one of my favorite months – not just because of my birthday. I love September, because it’s when the weather starts to coll down and when Fall officially starts (September 22nd).

After such a hectic and stressful summer, I spent August slowly getting back on track. Now, in September, I’m back to consistency and sticking to schedules. I thrive when I have a usual schedule, but also room for self-care appointments. I already have a hair and nail appointment scheduled in a couple of weeks – before my birthday. Excited.

Unfortunately, as much as I wanted and hoped that cool weather would’ve showed up last month, it didn’t. However, I feel that it will show up this month and I will be ready. Most of the things that I want are fall-friendly and great transitional pieces.

LUST-HAVE LIST: September 2019

  • Rose Gold Huggie Earrings – I’m always torn on if I should let the second hole in my ears closed or not. Now, I’m thinking the latter and would love to fill them with these adorable huggie earrings. I wanted a simple pair last month, but I guess I want an extra pop with rose gold this month.
  • Glow Stick Sunscreen – Me and sunscreen are BFFs for as long as I live – it’s helped the overall look of my skin. This sunscreen also act as a highlighter, which is intriguing.
  • Plus Size Destructed Ankle Jeans – Some of my favorite jeans I’ve been wearing are destructed skinny jeans, including the ankle. However, I love this pair of Levis that only have destructed ankle.
  • Navy Suede Crossbody Tote – I love all Madewell leather bags – I carry one everyday. However, I always fancy navy suede accessories and I definitely fancy this bag.
  • Black Patent Leather Heeled Loafers – Every other Fall, I want a pair of penny loafer. This year, I want a pair, but a heeled pair. These look so classic and could break these out every year.

LINK-END ROUND-UP: August 23, 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: August 23, 2019 | STAINED COUTURE

Yay – Link-End Round-Up is back!

I hope you all had a great week. Personally, I spent most of the week trying to heal my skin from last week. For months, I haven’t been eating much dairy, sweets, nor soda. Last weekend, I did them all! So, as soon as I woke up on Monday morning, I knew I made a huge mistake. I had a couple of painful cystic acne spot and a few regular above the skin pimples. Needless to say, I was not happy.

Thankfully, my benzoyl peroxide face wash helped clear up the cystic acne pretty fast. After that, I spent the rest of the week slather my face with Vitamin E oil and scar cream, to avoid future acne marks. Needless to say, I’ve learned my lesson and will not consume that much dairy and sugar in 2 days.

I’m so excite for this weekend, because I don’t have any plans – other church. So, I’m so excited to have no obligations and it feels good.

Here’s to an amazingly chill weekend and please enjoy the reads in this week’s Link-End Round-Up.
