LINK-END ROUND-UP: June 10, 2022

LINK-END ROUND-UP: June 10, 2022 { STAINED COUTURE

Happy Friday, friends! What a week this has been for your girl, but I survived it. All my plans and intentions for the week belly flopped out the window and I’ve been feeling a little disappointed. However, I’m not one to dwell too much on the past and instead choose to keep pushing forward.

My new position at work has been doing the most to me this week. However, I’m finally learning and dealing with the tasks that I’ve been wanting to learn. So, I’m not mad about it all!

As for this weekend, I’ve decided that I’m going to take some time to rest and recharge by myself. Doing this will help me get back on path for next week, which will include me doing an extensive skincare routine. I might also throw in a true crime marathon for a little razzle dazzle. Also, today is my childhood BFF’s birthday and I’ve been summoned to come visit her in Texas soon. So, at some point this weekend, I will be looking at my schedule to plan a trip down there next month. Actually, I’ve been talking about going back down there for the past few weeks, which means it’s time for me to get on it.

As usual, I hope you have a great weekend and check out this week’s Link-End Round-Up.

LUST-HAVE LIST: June 2022

LUST-HAVE LIST: June 2022

LUST-HAVE LIST: June 2022 | STAINED COUTURE

Hey, June! The great thing about June is start it officially is the last month of the first half of the year. Also, it officially welcomes Summer on June 22nd. June is a low-key great month filled with holidays (i.e. Father’s Day and Juneteenth) and lazy summer days. I’m ready for Summer and trying to enjoy my life as much as possible.

If you take a glace at this month’s Lust-Have List, you will see a number of items that scream that I’m ready to be outside – at my place or not. That reminds me, I need to stop by leasing office to get my pool pass. Trust me, I’m planning to be poolside as much as possible this summer. Please check out this month’s Lust-Have List and the items I’m wanting this month and summer.

LUST-HAVE LIST: June 2022

  • 3-Piece Patio Set – I still haven’t bought a patio set for my balcony, but this one is perfect and in my price range. I’m confident that I’m going to purchase it on my next payday.
  • Colorblock Tie-front Bathing Suit – I’ve been excited about this Tabitha Brown collection with Target ever since they announced it. Although I want practically everything, this colorblock bathing suit is at the top. Once my skin gets tanned, it’s going to look amazing! 🙂
  • Hyaluronic Hydrating Body Cream – Obviously, if I’m trying to get my body tanned this summer, it also needs to be hydrated. So, I want to treat it to this Peter Roth Thomas body cream. I’ve loved PRT products in the past and feel this will not be an exception.
  • Brown Espadrille Sandals – Sometimes it can be hard for me to find the perfect brown sandal in the perfect style. This espadrille I spotted over on DSW fits all the things I’ve been looking for in a brown sandal for summer. The price is nice, too!
  • Woven Clare V Satchel – Speaking of perfect brown accessories – this woven satchel from Clare V is perfection! Although I’m not a fan of the open bag look, I can’t help but to love this for me.

LUST-HAVE LIST: May 2022

LUST-HAVE LIST: May 2022

LUST-HAVE LIST: May 2022 | STAINED COUTURE

It feels so wild that it’s already May, but January feels like 10 months ago. Anyhow, I’m actually looking forward to this month, because I’m starting to actually make plans for the summer. I’ve already started to plan a couple of road trips and finally ready to start finding some furniture for my balcony. I want to lay out there and tan in peace. Actually, I need to look for a new swimsuit that actually fits my body.

Recently, I learned that I’ve been suffering from body dysmorphia for the past few years. This caused me to buy and wear clothes that are too big for me since I’ve lost some weight over the years. Not to mention, I know longer care what people think about how I look. If I feel good and comfortable, I don’t care what others think. Hopefully, everyone will reach this level of peace and big IDGAF energy. I love it here!

As for my wants this month, it’s screaming that summer is coming and I’m trying to be ready. So, here is my wishlist for May 2022 and I feel like I’m actually going to buy all these items this month.

LUST-HAVE LIST: May 2022

  • Yitty Midi Shaping Bra – When Lizzo announced that she was going to drop a shapewear I knew there were going to be some items that I wanted. This midi shaping bra is at the top of the list. It not only helps smooth that diabolical back fat, but it comes in an array of colors. That will allow you to wear it as a tank or under a button up. That yellow one, tho?! *chef’s kiss*
  • Animal Old Skool Leopard Print Vans – I was looking for some lace-up leopard print Vans, but I saw these first and that orange detail made me feel like these were the better choice.
  • Le Mini Macaron Party Babe Gel Polish – Recently picked up a bright cherry version of this polish over the weekend and I love it. This neon yellow one needs to be mine ASAP. I love neon yellow polish!
  • Distressed Denim Mom Shorts – Like I said, I don’t care what anyone thinks about me this summer and that includes my big legs. They need sun these shorts will help that happen.
  • Oversized All Black Sunglasses – My oversized black sunglasses broke a couple of months ago. I miss then, which means I need to replace them.

LINK-END ROUND-UP: April 29, 2022 | STAINED COUTURE

Happy Friday! We survived another week and month, because today is the last business day of the month. April felt long, bruh! Actually, today is already feeling a little long, but it’s Friday. So, that’s a highlight. Also, I have a long awaited a hair appointment today, which I’m so excited about it. My best friend is also my hair stylist, which also makes it an impromptu.

As for this weekend, I want to try to finally make it to the farmers market. I haven’t in few years, thanks to COVID, but the weather is too nice to not go tomorrow. Plus, my fridge needs the fresh produce and I want to check out some local vendors. Actually, I can’t wait now that I think about it.

This past week, I went to IKEA to see a table I’ve been eyeing person, but it was sold out. It wasn’t just sold out my IKEA, but practically every IKEA in the country. So, I guess I’m back to the drawing board trying to find a circle dining table that doesn’t break the bank. le sigh

Anyway, I hope you have a great weekend and get as much fresh air as possible. Also, please check out the links in this week’s Link-End Round-Up.
