LINK-END ROUND-UP: March 22, 2019

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

 

Happy Friday, fam! Despite some little “hiccups” here and there, this week was pretty good. First of all, Spring finally graced us with her appearance and the weather has been beautiful. I spent most of this week doing some upkeep, which included getting an oil change, a facial, and long overdue pedicure.

Today, I have a hair appointment that I’m looking forward to, but also a little sad about. Despite the extra attention I’ve been giving my lighten hair over the past year, I need to go back darker. The breakage hasn’t been too bad, but it could’ve been better. Plus, the process of going blonde has been slowly destroying my natural curl pattern. I’d rather have a head full of thick and dark healthy curly hair than a head of thinning and breaking limp curly light hair. #Adulting

My plans for this weekend include finally getting back to blogging more. I’m really annoyed with the lack of content I’ve been sharing on here and on my Twitter and IG account. So, I’m going dedicate some much needed time to work on some posts that I’ve been meaning to share. Actually, I’m getting a little excited about it all.

As usual, here’s to a great weekend hopefully filled with warm, sunny weather. Enjoy this week’s Link-End Round-Up!

eSTYLIST: Hey, Spring 2019

eSTYLIST post to welcome Spring 2019!

eSTYLIST: Hey Spring 2019 | STAINED COUTURE

Spring is here…finally! Not only is Spring here, but I also think that Spring weather is here, too. Well, there it was about 30 degree yesterday, but it eventually warmed up into a warm, sunny day in the mid-60s. It was beautiful!

When Spring finally hits, I usually break out all the floral prints and pastel colors. However, the other style I break out is neutral and natural colors and textures, which is what I’m into this season. I’ve buying a lot of natural colors and textures such as olive, tans, and raffia straw accessories. Therefore, this eStylist post for Spring 2019 contains all the styles and details that I’ve loving for spring.

LINK-END ROUND-UP: March 15, 2019

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

 

Happy Friday, class! I hope you all had a great week. Oh, my week? Well, it was interesting, to say the least. However, I divulge more about that in a later post, which will probably be next week. Or, by the time you’re reading this, I might’ve shared it on IG Stories or something. Eh, you never know…unless you follow me on IG.

Today, weather permitting, my sister and I may take my nephew to the zoo. I mean, he’s only 6 months and is very reserved around new people, places, and things. Therefore, this trip will solely be for us, but only if it doesn’t feel that cold outside. Spring begins next week and the weather yesterday was unexpectedly warmer than expected. So, that’s what we’re hoping for today, as well

My main plan for this weekend is to lay low, as much as possible. I have some little things to do here and there, but the for the most part; nothing. I’m planning to use this time to meditate and reflect on my past while planning my future. Life can be one crazy ride, but it’s not too bad as long as you remember.

Let’s raise a glass of wine to you and your weekend. Also, please enjoy the articles in this week’s Link-End Round-Up!

IOTW: Weleda Skin Food

ITEM OF THE WEEK is a weekly series on Stained Couture that highlights a product we’re currently loving. This week: Weleda Skin Food

ITEM OF THE WEEK: Weleda Skin Food | STAINED COUTURE

I just realizes that I’ve been doing Item of the Week for a little over a year. Kind of mind-blowing, because it doesn’t feel like I’ve been doing this for that long. Can you remember the first item I included? Here’s a hint!

So, this week’s Item of the Week is long overdue for a couple of reasons. One reason is because it’s been a minute since I’ve shared an item of the week. The other reason is because I’ve been using, abusing, and loving Weleda’s Skin Food for far too long to not have given it the spotlight it deserves. So, keep reading to see all the reasons this product has been rocking my world.

LUST-HAVE LIST: March 2019

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

LUST-HAVE LIST: March 2019 | STAINED COUTURE

It took a lot for me not to fill up this month’s Lust-have List with sofas, chairs, and coffee tables since those are the main things I’ve been looking to buy. Whew, chile, shopping to fill up a 2 bedroom apartment can be tiring and expensive. However, I diverted from that and instead focused on the little things I want and low-key need.

The first day of spring begins on the 20th of this month. So, most of these items are spring forward. Therefore, keep reading to see what items I’m wanting this month.

LUST-HAVE LIST: March 2019

  • Baltic Necklace, $62, Shashi – I’m still in love with my Shashi shell necklace and think this all gold one from Shashi would compliment it perfectly.
  • Linea Paolo Anya Bow Mules, $99, Nordstrom – For the past couple of months, I’ve been going through a baby pink/ blush phase. So, this bow mules in this perfect shade of blush is right up my alley.
  • Satin Scrunchie, $9, Slip – I’m addicted to scrunchies and prefer all of them in satin.
  • Hooded Windbreaker, $52.99, Old Navy – I haven’t had or wanted a windbreaker in decades. This one from Old Navy looks cool and classic. However, I’m hoping to catch it on sale. 😛
  • Stunna Lip Paint in Unlocked, $24, Fenty Beauty – One of my favorite red lip products in Fenty Stunna in Uncensored. This new Stunna lip paint is the perfect hot pink lip for spring.
