LINK-END ROUND-UP: May 31, 2019 | STAINED COUTURE

Happy Friday, friends!

Not only is it the last day of the work week, but also the last day of the month. This month has been a rollercoaster for me, but it’s definitely been a learning experience. Personally, I feel like I’ve experienced every emotion, other than grief, this month. However, in hindsight, I feel that this month set me up to experience some really good things. Unfortunately, the not knowing is stressing me out, but it’s part of the process.

So, this weekend is my 20th high school reunion, but I’m not sure how much I’m going to participate. The festivities kick off tonight, but it’s at a club and I don’t do clubs. I’m really trying to urge me to go to picnic tomorrow, but I really don’t want to go. So, I’m going to have to find someone to convince me to go. I’m pretty sure my sister will get me to go.

To be honest, I think I need a day to sit in peace and to myself. It’s one of the things I do to strengthen my mental health. Unfortunately, I don’t think I’ll be able get a day off for a few more days.

To end this on a positive note, I hope you all get some rest this weekend and enjoy this week’s Link-End Round-Up.

LINK-END ROUND-UP: May 24, 2019

Hey, Friday! You feel very hot today and I’m not happy about it. However, it’s the beginning of a long weekend and I’m willing to call us even.

I can’t wait to leave work tonight, because I need to hit my leasing office to secure my pool pass. Yes, the pool opens this weekend and I’m sure it’s going to be packed like a can of sardines. However, I plan to be one of those sardines, because the temperatures have been in the high 90s. It’s been miserable and I deserve to float in a pool for a couple hours a day this weekend.

Other than floating in a pool, my plans for this weekend is to avoid being outside at all costs. This means I’m not going to anyone’s BBQ, because it’s this heat is not to be played with this weekend. However, I’m accepting plates if you deliver them.

Anyway, I hope you all enjoy this long weekend and get some smoked ribs for me. In the meantime, enjoy this week’s edition of Link-End Round-Up.

eSTYLIST: Memorial Day Weekend 2019

This week has been long and I can’t express how thrilled I am that this is long weekend. Yes, it’s Memorial Day Weekend. For me, it’s going to be a lazy weekend and I will dress as such. This edition of eStylist is definitely lazy, but cute.

eSTYLIST: Memorial Day Weekend 2019

I know that most people spend this extended weekend by going out of town or hitting up BBQs. I’m not mad at those options, but I want to be left alone this weekend. This weekend also marks the beginning of Summer, but it’s been feeling like summer all week. Girl, I’m talking about consecutive days in the high 90s, which feels miserable.

Thankfully, the pools in my apartment open this weekend, which gives you an idea of where I plan to be this weekend. Also, I need to break out all my shorts and summer dresses, because it’s that time. We had a light winter, which means we’re probably going to have a sweltering summer. Ugh, I’m going to have to stock up on sunscreen and ingredients to make my fav lemon mint water. Hydration is key!

The look I’m feeling this weekend is throwback to pieces I owned back in the 80s; acid wash. Never saw this coming back, but I think I want to test it out this summer.

IOTW: Dermablend Illuminating Banana Powder

ITEM OF THE WEEK is a weekly series on Stained Couture that highlights a product I’m currently loving. This week: Dermablend Illuminating Banana Powder.

ITEM OF THE WEEK: Dermablend Illuminating Banana Powder | STAINED COUTURE

One of my favorite things to do is find something that makes me realize I’ve been wrong. For instance, one thing that I never thought existed was a banana powder that I could use under my eyes that would make my already yellow undertone skin look more yellow. I know, it might sound like I should want that, but it doesn’t look as good as it sounds. Well, it didn’t use to, but I now I know that a there is a magical banana powder out there that works perfectly for me and most skin tones. Ladies and gents, Dermablend’s Banana Powder is that magical powder. If you haven’t heard and/or tried this powder, but need a amazing banana powder; keep reading.

TGIF!

Hopefully, this is the last week of me not having a “planned” schedule. As a person of habit, I can adapt to small changes in my schedule here and there. However, to spend most of the week in the dark about what days I’m in the office or not has been difficult. Thankfully, I now know what I days I need to be in the office, which allow to confidently plan other meetings and appointments. My poor daily planner has been look less scheduled and more scattered. It irks me so bad when I have to scratch out a plan and scribble a little note next to it to explain why I did it. Also, I love a clean schedule, too.

Today, I don’t have to go into the office, but I do have a meeting this afternoon. Until then, I plan to stay in my cool apartment until it’s time for me to leave, because is was super hot yesterday. I think the temps today are supposed to be hot, too, and I’m not ready to deal with that. I looked so miserable yesterday, because it was so hot.

As for this weekend, I have a lot of work to catch up on, which includes some rest. I’m just craving for consistency and looking for anyway I can get it.

In the meantime, I hope you all have a great weekend and enjoy the links in this week’s Link-End Round-Up.
