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.

LUST-HAVE LIST: February 2019

How has your February been going so far? Mine has been pretty productive, considering this is just day 4. Still productive none the less.

This month’s Lust-Have list features simple and chic accessories, a pair of statement shoes, and some beauty products that I’m pretty positive that I need. Let’s be honest, there were so many other things that I wanted to add. I’m still trying to be very mindful of things I buy and have a need for them. However, I’m still a work in progress, because I don’t need a pair of red sneakers with animal print trim. Or do I?

So, please keep reading to see what I want to throw my hard earned money at this month.

LUST-HAVE LIST: February 2019

  • Peter Thomas Roth FIRMx Peeling Gel – I’ve really been into skin exfoliates that don’t include abrasive beads. This new PTR peeling gel sounds promising to help exfoliate my skin. Plus, it also helps to clean out pore. Oh, all this sweet talking is making me blush!
  • Thick Hoop Earrings – My usual hoop of choice are big, thin, complete circle hoops. However, I think a chunkier style is going to be my new go-to for spring and summer. This set of three is perfect.
  • Quay Zeus Sunglasses – I still can’t believe that I don’t own a pair of nude sunglasses. Maybe it was fate holding out for me stumble across these beauts. FYI, the mirrored lenses are gold. Love ’em. Need em!
  • Nike Air Max 97 Red, Black, and Leopard Print – I want a pair of dope red sneakers and these 97 Air Max are doopppeee! The leopard print trim is what did it for me! *Insert all the flame emojis*
  • Kush Lip Glaze – Slathering thick, hydrating creams on my lips before bedtime has been so gratifying to me over the past couple of week. So, I’ve been eyeing MILK Makeup’s cannabis oil infused lip glaze, which is hydrating and conditioning. Sounds like a winner!

LUST-HAVE LIST: December 2018

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

LUST-HAVE LIST: December 2018 | STAINED COUTURE

Here we go! The final Lust-Have list of 2018!

Some people tend to feel a little pressured at the beginning of December. Usually, because there’s a mad dash feeling of having to deal with final touched of holiday stuff, meeting goals, and getting prepared for a new year. I’m usually that person, but not this year. Although I’ve barely touched my shopping list and still haven’t found a new place to move, I feel very calm. I guess because I know that I will finish my Christmas shopping on time and find the right place for me at the right time. There’s no need to stress. At some point, you have realize that everything works itself out in the end. You just have to keep doing what you’re doing for the good of the fight.

Well, that was quick Word that I wasn’t planning on sharing, but I guess someone needed to hear that at this moment.

Back to what I want this month. I’ve been walking this tightrope of wanting to step my game up and getting out of my comfort level. However, I also love being cozy and comfortable. So, the things I want this month are a mixture of both. Keep reading to see the things I want to keep straddling the fence.

LUST-HAVE LIST: December 2018

  • Face Halo Makeup Remover Pads – I occasionally get suckered into wanting something I saw on Instagram. The latest thing that sucker punched me while scrolling are these Face Halo makeup remover wipes. I recently stopped using face wipes, but I miss the ease of using wipes and being done. For these, all you have to do is add water to the pad and use it to wipe the makeup off your face. I’ve watched a few videos of these bad boys in action and they seem to do a better job than most wipes. You still need to double cleanse your face, though.
  • Glitter Poppy Moc Slippers – Moccasin slippers are my favorite form of slippers, because they don’t look too much like slippers when you run to the corner store to pick up a candy bar when “Aunt Flo” is in town. Why glitter? Why not glitter?! Plus, they look cozy AF!
  • Fluffy Red Cardigan – Speaking of looking cozy, doesn’t this fluffy cardigan look like a soft blanket with sleeves? Well, maybe not considering that’s what a Snuggie is, but this cardigan is a lot cuter.
  • Black Wide Fit Knee High Boots – It can be hard to find cute over-the-knee boots when you have legs like a oak tree. However, the back of these boots are all elastic. I think this are a winner!
  • Joyful: The Surprising Power of Ordinary Things to Create Extraordinary Happiness – I’m a legit happy person for the most part. Being happy is one of my favorite characteristics and you can never have too much happiness. I’ve read some great reviews about this book and it sounds like a book I would write. So, I need to read this. Right?!

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

LUST-HAVE LIST: November 2018 | STAINED COUTURE

Oh hey, November!

We’re speed racing to the end of 2018, aren’t we! Well, I’m so ready for the holiday season to come! A couple of weeks ago, while noticing some stores sneaking in Christmas items, I was all ready over Christmas. However, now that Halloween is over, I’m all about the holiday gift sets and winter garb. I’M READY!!!

I’ve been very good with my spending and saving the past couple of months. *pats self on back* Hopefully, I will keep this savings train going strong, but I know I’m going to have to fall off a little while Christmas shopping. Unlike most years, I’m giving myself a spending budget by choice – not by case of only having a certain amount to spend. I’m actually looking forward to this challenge.

The November 2018 Lust-Have List features items that I know I will get my money’s worth. Keep reading to see what’s on this months’ Lust-Have List.

LUST-HAVE LIST: November 2018

  • I-Waken Eye Serum – I’m a total skincare junkie and have a product for practically any skincare concern and then some. However, I rarely buy products for my eye area, but I’m changing that with this eye serum from Indie Lee. The reviews I’ve read make me feel like this might be a winner.
  • Jute Die Cut Bucket Bag – I low-key love anything with laser cut details. This bucket bag is simple, but also unique.
  • Oversize Neon V Neck Sweater – I’ve been lusting for an oversize, relaxed fit neon sweater for a couple years and then I stumbled upon this gem from ASOS. Unfortunately, it’s selling out pretty fast and my size was gone. However, I’m praying this gets restocked or find something similar and soon.
  • Steve Madden Reece Sock Bootie – Another stumble thing I stumbled on were beautiful blush sock booties. These would look so cute to break up any all black casual look and many other looks.
  • Round CZ Stud Earrings – You can never have too many “diamond” stud earrings and CZ pair are just as good. A big pair are great to have during the holidays. Trust me!
  • The Complete Ketogenic Diet for Beginners – For the past month, I’ve been trying out keto and it’s been interesting. I haven’t been consistent, but I will in due time. So, this book is right at the top of my Amazon shopping cart. This might be a Christmas gift to myself.
