LUST-HAVE LIST: January 2020 | STAINED COUTUREew

Welcome to “Roaring ’20s” and this year is all about 20/20 vision! Are ya’ll tired of the 2020 cliches as much as me? I hope so.

This year’s January Lust-Have List is filled with items I wish I had asked one of my Santas to get for me. Maybe, every year’s January LHL is just a list of things I wish someone had bought for me for Christmas. *face palm*

Keep reading to see the list of my December regrets – I guess.

LUST-HAVE LIST: January 2020

  • Algenist GENIUS Liquid Collagen – I need more collagen in my life, because my skin is starting to shift down. After spending an insane amount of time researching products, Algenist Liquid Collagen seems the be the best collagen product on the market. I wish I knew this when I was able to get it for 20% off during the Sephora sale. Hopefully, I’ll bite the bullet this month.
  • Black Faux Croc Buckle Boots – Another I need more of in my life are shoes with texture. Faux croc is one of my favorite textures, which is why I’m feeling these boots. Plus, they come in wide width. Cute wide with boots still exist, ladies.
  • Gold and Diamond Libra Necklace – If there is something that says “Libra”, I want it and every color. Although this zodiac necklace doesn’t say Libra, it’s gold and diamonds, so I’ll be okay. Plus, the price is affordable for the quality and materials. I want to collect real gold jewelry from now on.
  • 2020 Create & Cultivate Planner – Over the past few days, people on my IG feed have been on a mad hunt for the Create & Cultivate journals. The journals are only available at Target and sold out online. Some people have been able to find them in select stores. I know of one in my area, which I’m planning to hit this weekend. Wish me luck.
  • Heavenly Luxe Complexion Brush – This past weekend, I rediscovered my love of dual-end makeup brushes. Courtney Kerr of Kerrently.com uses this IT Cosmetics double-ended brush, which she praises highly every time. I have a couple of It Cosmetics brushes and the quality is amazing. So, I know I won’t regret this purchase.

LUST-HAVE LIST: December 2019

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

LUST-HAVE LIST: December 2019 | STAINED COUTURE

Hey, December! Ya’ll? Can you believe that 2019 is almost over, as well as the decade?! I’m shook.

My lust-have list for December is usually a Christmas wishlist. However, I’ve been telling everyone that I don’t really want anything for Christmas, because I feel content. It’s a good feeling to feel like you have everything you need, even if you don’t. Still, I was able to find a few things that caught my eye and I may send to couple of people as gift options. *insert devilish grin*

LUST-HAVE LIST: December 2019

  • Bluetooth Earmuffs – For the past couple of years, I’ve been wanting a new pair of earmuffs that don’t look like huge balls of fur on the side of my  head. These earmuffs from Pottery Barn look simply perfect and they also have bluetooth and microphone. So, you can look warm and be discreetly connected.
  • Faux Leather Plus-size Biker Jacket – I’ve been craving a simple and affordable biker jacket. Although I would prefer a real leather biker jacket, this ASOS one looks pretty good for a fake leather one.
  • Fresh Life Body Oil – I’m addicted to body oil, especially in the winter and I prefer to have a few options. I had a whiff of Fresh Beauty’s Life Body Oil recently and I can’t stop thinking about it. It has a light, but fragrant scent that I must have in my life.
  • Nail Art Brush Set – As a hobby, I recently started to do my own nail art in between my nail appointments. Not only does it help to relax me, but it’s been helping my nails stay strong and grow. Since this is just a hobby, this set of nail art brushes is the bare minimum I need and they cost less than $6.
  • Faux Fur Lace-Up Boots – While doing some Black Friday shopping, I spotted these furry lace-up boots at Target and it was love at first sight. They look so good in person – in black and brown. Initially, I wanted the black ones, but the brown ones spoke louder to me. Not buying these boots is my only regret of the weekend. However, I’m hoping to catch them on sale, before the month ends.

LUST-HAVE LIST: November 2019

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

LUST-HAVE LIST: November 2019 | STAINED COUTURE

Hey, November! How’s your November been going so far? Mine has been hectic, but good. This weekend was amazing, which caused me to not get much done. I haven’t washed my hair in over a week, which I’m going to do as soon as I publish this post. Also, I didn’t get to finish all my laundry or wash my makeup brushes, but I will tackle all these things before I go to bed. Not to mention, the daylight savings has thrown me off. Some people got an extra hour of sleep, but the rest of us got up and hour earlier than usual.

This month, I’m trying to cut back on my spending in order to save for holiday spending and next year. So, I’m still working on not spending too much and being mindful with my spending. Keep reading to get the details on what items I’m lusting after this month.

LUST-HAVE LIST: November 2019

  • Tinted Face Oil Foundation – The weather is getting colder and drier. My skin is usually more normal/combination in the colder months, but not this year. My skin, especially when using mineral foundation powder, has been looking might dry. I’ve heard nothing but great things about this tinted face oil from Kosas from people with dry skin. So, I really want to give this a whirl around my face.
  • Black Block-Heel Booties – My ankles and weak leg muscles are so glad that block heels are still going strong. I realize that I still haven’t gotten a simple, all black pair of ankle boots for fall and winter. I love this pair, because they will go with everything AND they are currently on sale.
  • Convertible Hobo Bag – I ready to venture off from my daily black or brown tote or satchel. I love the cool factor this Botkier bag – from the slate grey color to the interesting design. You can convert it to a shoulder bag, but I love the satchel look.
  • Warm Cotton Fragrance – This past weekend, I picked up the travel version of this scent and I’m in love! It smells like fresh laundry that was washed in Gain – I love the scent of Gain. So, I need the larger bottle.
  • Engravable Lock Pendant – Although I’m trying to collect minimalist gold jewelry, I love the look of this lock pendant from Bauble Bar. It’s the perfect mixture of minimalist jewelry with a little edge. PLUS, you can get it engraved.

LUST-HAVE LIST: October 2019

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

LUST-HAVE LIST: October 2019

It’s October and I’m ready for all the fall things! Despite summer being the “lazy” season, I feel more comfortable in the fall. The weather is cooler and the weekends feel way more casual and relaxing. I definitely hit my stride in the fall.

This month, I’m into neutral tones, interesting designs, and simple silhouettes. So, keep reading to see what I’m wanting this month. Plus, this is the last month, before it’s no longer about what we want. *insert jingle bells*

LUST-HAVE LIST: October 2019

  • Pattern Beauty On-the-Go-Kit – I’m so mad at myself that I still haven’t tried anything from Tracee Ellis Ross’ Pattern Beauty. I’ve been stalking their travel kit for weeks – on their site and Ulta.com. It’s sold out at all the Ulta’s in my area and I’m on all the waiting lists.
  • Pearl Hoop Earrings – Hoop earrings are my daily jewelry jam. Although they can be worn with anything, they can be a little too casual. These hoops with pearls all over add a subtle elegance to any look.
  • Snakeskin Print Sneakers – I’ve been wanting some casual, but fun looking sneakers. These sneakers from Steve Madden are just the sneakers I need for fall.
  • Nude Crossbody Chain Wallet – I need to downsize my daily purse again, which is mostly filled with things I don’t use. I’ve never used a chain wallet as a daily bag, but I could. I was able to use a super small purse everyday for months. So, this may be light work.
  • Long Sleeve V-Neck Plus Size Printed Mini Dress – For real, I need all the cute, printed flowing dresses for fall. Plus, I prefer if they are above the knee and in a fall color. I’m so into this dress from Target. It fits perfectly into my ideal look for fall.

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.
