Yeah,

 

He used to pluck the heads off of our Barbies if we didn't play fair!

 

Don't forget the TONKA truck.

I've never heard of this line before. Can you tell me a little about the brushes?

Girl you should ask for an AMEX gift card because this is some list! I love it !


Lol, you're right. A gift card would be better. Plus you're in luck if you still want Peridot. They must've relaunched the color or something because you can get it at Chanel.com and other department stores. I got mine from Nordstrom. It's gorgeous!

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


This one! I've been waiting for it to go on sale. There's another dress I like, but I missed the sale and it already sold out.

From what I understand, this is the company that used to make MAC brushes and other brands brushes as well. Their brushes are supposed to be beyond soft. They have other great quality brushes, but the S100 Series Vermilion brushes are their top of the line. The ferrules are 24-karat gold plated brass and the brush hair is hand cut. I also read somewhere that the company founder originally made this line of brushes for his wife. I thought that was a very sweet story. You can find videos about them on YouTube.

 

They also have two sets you can get.

5 Brush Set: http://www.hakuhodousa.com/shop/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=1_9&products_id=241

8 Brush Set: http://www.hakuhodousa.com/shop/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=1_9&products_id=242

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.

Same here, I've been natural since 96.  I transitioned too, but kinda wish I did hte big chop.  I refuse to cut my hair now. I have a big head. LOL  When I started we had naturallycurly, blackhairclub (?),  and then napturality was created.  But like you said, it wasn't a "movement".  I tried to convert sooo many ppl back then, it is funny for me to watch them convert now, and they LOVE it.

Let me know what size you need in dress #2 via PM and I'll see if I can locate it for you. It was popular when it got marked down though so it may be a challenge. Are you familiar with chasing down Anthro sale items? LOL. I do it pretty much every week. They do inventory every Sunday so Monday will give us a good chance to get it. I was in love with dress #1 when it came out, but you should read the reviews. The fabric is thin to the point where it's a bit see-through and pills. I believe the pattern placement isn't the same as the photograph. That said if I saw it on 2nd cut I'd probably go for it. I've also seen it on eBay cheaper so you may want to go that route.

 

I was natural for 3-5 years (can't recall), but I didn't do a chop. I just wore wigs the whole time. When I finally got a relaxer again my hair was bra strap length and beautiful. I wish it was like that now. I ended up having my hair fall out up to my ears in some places due to a medication and relaxer interaction so then I finally did a chop. Now my hair is shoulder length, healthy, thicker and relaxed.

 

Ok, back to topic. I know my family would never buy me the wallet I wanted above. So sad. I would LOVE to have my car detailed. It's filthy lol.

1. iMAC desktop!

2. Sephora or MAC giftcard

3. A new car would be nice considering my baby is old!

 

That's really it because everything else I want I can get for myself like I'm treating myself to an new iPad and camera for Christmas. I'll probably get the giftcards but I doubt anything else lol. I was telling my dad about a macbook and he was I guess thats what you want for Christmas huh, but I don't know if he'll get it for sure. It would be lovely to have a new car but I must be dreaming if I think I'm getting another car! A girl can dream.

I'll PM you! I think it may still be in a few stores. I was going to call to find out. I should've gotten it wen they had that 20% off promotion, but I think I was buying something else. Probably makeup. I read those reviews for dress #1, but still wanted to try it for myself. I figure I would just return it if it's too bad to deal with.

Same thing. Went straight to the Barbie Dream House. The JC Penny one was always nicer and bigger than the Toys R Us one.

I known what you mean. I BC'd 3 years ago after 5 months of transitioning. As my hair has gotten longer I don't like too many steps in my routine. I bought a heutiful steamer about a year ago and have only used it 3 times. I think it is well worth the money ...I just need to stop being lazy and use it.

OMG!!!! I was out at the mall tonight getting my fix. I was in Nordies but looked at shoes and then went down to the Lush store. How apprpriately named that place is. I was like a lush/junkie in there fiending for bath bombs and such! Geez...I need to have my head examined. I'll stop by Nordies when I get off from work tomorrow. Thanks luvie for that tidbit!

Pretty packages I never saw the JC Penney one! It was Sears and Toys R Us. I feel like there was another place but I'm drawing a blank.

I went into Nordies this evening and was in my element. There were so many beauty stations set up around the lower level with all the fragrance and beauty gift sets. You know what I felt like? Have you ever gone in an all you can eat buffet and just got a sald? That's how I felt! Although I do want some Viktor and Rolf Flowerbomb! Whew! I'm tired!

No problem! I'll probably have to end up gifting them to myself.

For those wanting the Clarisonic, get it! I have the Mia2 and a few different brush heads and love it! It's one gadget I'm not too lazy to use.

I really like the steamer. I could tell a difference in my hair the times that I used it. My hair felt softer and stayed moisturized a lot longer when I used it. I think I ill pull it out today and use it!!!

I have the original Mia and love it! I was so selfish with my Mia I didn't want  anyone to use it so I bought 2 more for my  husband and my daughter to keep them away from mine. Do you use the different speeds on yours? I'm trying to justify upgrading to the new one....lol.
