LUST-HAVE LIST: June 2019

It’s June and I’m so anxious for this month, because I have a feeling some major things are going to happen in my life this month. Well, I’m praying for some big BIG things to move in my life this month. Even they don’t, the reason won’t be have anything to do with my grind.

Other than working my butt off, I really want to become more mindful of my feelings. Since I try to avoid conflict as much as possible, sometimes I suppress my feelings just to remove myself from any possible. Unfortunately, those feelings and thoughts can linger with me days after the conversation has ended. So, yeah, being more verbal with how people make me feel is something I’m working on for June.

Another thing I’m working on is trying to perfect my cool, relax looks for the summer. This is going to be one super hot summer and I’m just trying to look as cute as I can fighting a stream of sweat from rolling my face. Keep reading to see what items I’m coveting this month.

LUST-HAVE LIST: June 2019

  • Inst-Grip Jelly Makeup Primer – Since I’ve realized that Dermablend makeup is pretty amazing, I’ve been wanting to try more from them. Theire new primer is at the top of the list. What has interested me is that it’s a jelly primer and I love the pump applicator.
  • Mamonde Deep Pore Cleanser Stick – A couple of years ago, I was obsessed with face cleansing sticks, but it’s been a while since I used. I’ve been having some congestion on my cheeks, which is caused from make-up setting up shop in my large pores. So, I’m itching to try this deep cleansing stick from the K-Beauty brand, Mamonde.
  • Melissa Papete + Rider Sandals – Ever since I saw Derria of What Would Derria Wear these sandals in yellow and neon orange, I’ve been obsessed with them. Unfortunately, I can’t find them in my size in that color combo. I’m still looking, but I do fancy them in the white and clear vinyl colorways, too. Plus, it has a gentle trim of yellow, which I love.
  • Vinyl Shopper – I feel like I’ve been eyeing cute vinyl bags for years, but I still haven’t bought one. Maybe this vinyl shopper from Zara will break the curse. I the juxtaposition of a clean design paired with a interesting smoky pink vinyl material. Plus, I love how you can remove the strap carry it as a satchel.
  • Beyond The Stars Bun Pin – If you ever run into me on any given day, there’s a 99% chance that my hair will be in some form of a bun. So, since I can’t give up this lazy girl hairstyle, I might as well glam it up a bit. Kitsch, the online mecca of cute hair accessories, have these gorgeous bun pins. You can style that bun on the crown of your head with an accessory that looks like a crown. So adorable.

LUST-HAVE LIST: May 2019

It’s May! Oddly, April felt like it lasted forever, which is weird. However, that’s old news, because we have made it to a new month! I say this all the time, but I love the beginning of anything new, which includes a new month. Personally, May is going to be an important month for me. I set some personal deadlines of things I need to achieve by the end of the month. I’m hopeful and faithful that everything will work itself out.

Back to the fun stuff; all the things I’m wanting this month. Keep reading to get all the details.

  • SUPERGOOP! Unseen Sunscreen SPF 40, $32, Sephora – I wear sunscreen everyday and apply it numerous times when I know I’m going to be outside for an extended time. This SUPERGOOP! is the sunscreen of choice for a lot of estheticians and dermatologists I follow online. So,I feel like I need to try it.
  • Blakely Platform Sandal, $135, Nordstrom – Last year, I noticed that athletic sandals were slowly coming back. However, they are everywhere this year and I want in. Loving this nude pair by JSlides, which are chic for such a sporty look.
  • Felizia Personalized Wrap Bracelet, $42, Bauble Bar – A few years ago, I was hardcore into wearing stacks of thin bracelets, including a few friendship ones. I’m feeling this look again and would love to start with this personalize one, which you can add up 8 letters. However, I love the look of just one letter, too.
  • Net Market Tote, $3, Brandless – Brandless has really taken off since I first learned of them a couple of years ago, especially with the range of products they offer. I love that they now offer net totes, which are my prefer bag of choice for Saturday morning farmer’s market adventures.
  • Stress Less, Accomplish More, $17, Amazon – My stress has been flaring up more than usually, but I’m very good at dealing with it. Still, it doesn’t hurt to learn more ways to stress less and get more things done. This book looks to like it would help.

Happy April! March was definitely a season for me, but I think it was actually the slap in the face that I needed. Therefore, I’m so ready to hit the ground running and I’m super excited. However, I’m still in the building stages of this new chapter and have so many things I need to do. I’m pacing myself, but not waiting to have “everything” in check.

Today is April Fools Day and I’ve always hated this day, because it’s stupid!! Can you tell I’ve fallen for a lot of April Fools pranks in my life? Whatevs.

This month, the first full month of spring, I’m all about simple everyday things, but with a little extraness.

LUST-HAVE LIST: April 2019

  • Sunday Riley A+ High-Dose Retinol Serum, $85, Sephora – I think I’m ready to add retinol back to my skincare routine and I want to start with this new offering from Sunday Riley. Although it’s a high dose, I have plenty of ultra moisturizing moisturizers.

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.

  • 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.

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!
