All I Want for Christmahanakwanzaa 2012 Is...

post #1 of 129
Thread Starter 

Hey luvs!!! I'm sitting here poring over beauty sites and catalogs compiling my Christmas list and was wondering what 's on everyone's gift list this year. At the top of my list is a Huetiful Hair Steamer and a Clarisonic Plus. What about you?

Excellent question!  I have no idea what I want yet.  girlhaha.gif

That's top of my list this year! My hair used to go crazy around this time of year when it was relaxed, so now that it's fully natural I'm almost afraid to see what will happen.

 

I want a GameStop gift card and free reign at B&BW during one of their 2 for $20 3-wick candle sales. It's ridiculous how much time I spend in there poring over candles.

All I want is my 2 front teeth (hehehe) and 2 Classic Coach bags:

 

The Field Bag and The Classic Duffle - not the Legacy one.

 

I also want the 4th gen ipad or ipad mini.

 

An iphone 5 would be nice but that's pushing it.

Nuclearteeth all I have to say is...Like minds!!! I've been natural for 13 months and I've been wanting one for awhile. I  have read reviews and everyone loves it and raves about how soft and hydrated their hair is.

I've been natural for 12 years now, I think. Lol, long before it became a journey or movement. It wasn't anything groundbreaking. Relaxers were just damaging my hair at the time and I got tired and frustrated with the whole process, so I just stopped getting them. I guess I unknowingly transitioned. There was no info back then like there is now. I love YouTube. Even though I've been natural for years, I didn't really know what I was doing with my hair until only a couple of years ago. Ironically, I kept my daughter's hair natural since birth.

 

I thought about getting the Huetiful Hair Steamer, but I honestly think it will end up as a gadget I won't really use. I'm also very lazy with my hair. I don't like a bunch of extra steps or a fussy process. I've had my eye on this super fast hair dryer for quite some time now. It's costs a lot more than the steamer, but it's more multipurpose. I want it for when I roller set/twist/style my hair, and I will also use it for deep conditioning.

I've developed my own oil concoction for hair and skin. I've recently added Moroccan oil to the mix. I like my oils to be as 100% pure and unrefined as possible. I've tried Zinn Moroccan Argan Oil that I picked up from Ulta. I'm also going to try another brand of Moroccan oil to compare and see which one I like best. I can't remember the other one at the moment. I do like the Zinn one so far.

CartoonChic I totally get where you're coming from. I never transitioned. I went to the barbershop and told the barber that I wanted to go natural and starting cutting my hair. He bust out laughing and said "You're already natural 'cause there ain't no perm in your hair!!!" Alrighty then...he chopped it off and I've been good to go ever since. Besides, I'd rather spend more time on my face! I'm like you, I don't really have a bunch of steps, it's usually water, oil and out the door. I'll check out the super fast hair dryer but girl I really want that steamer!yes.gif

The jury is still out on it. I've been using it for a week on dry hair. I haven't tried it as an after or pre-poo treatment which I'll probably do this weekend. For the most part it does hydrate there's just something about the feel of it that I can't wrap my brain around yet. I was planning on blogging a review next week so I'll keep ypu posted!

I've tried One 'n Only products and the're pretty good. I've never tried Zinn.

I got the Lush Holiday catalog in the mail a few days ago and I had to laugh. I've been poring over it and circling like crazy the things that I want. It reminds me of when I was a little kid with the Toys R' Us big toy catalog!! Sad...

LOL! You brought back some major memories with that one! I always, always, always would circle the Barbie Dream House every single year when I was a kid. Never got it though. I ended up getting it for my daughter.

Circling like a mad woman!

 

She's been talking my ear off about the Lush catalog.

 

PUT IT DOWN AND GET TO WERK!!!

I love Chanel polishes. I could kick myself for not getting last years hot buy, Peridot. It was gorgeous but sold out everywhere that I went to purchase. I found a Maybelline dupe but it being Maybelline doesn't have the staying power like Chanel. I love Chanel color but not their skincare. Leaves a little to be desired. Girl you should ask for an AMEX gift card because this is some list! I love it !

post #30 of 129

Ha ha, presstoblend, I didn't have any Kens so GI Joe and Mr. T would often be kicking down the door to my Barbie house.

 

CartoonChic, which Anthro dress do you want? I shop there weekly and can watch for sales for you.
