I don't have a lot of "fun" stuff in my house but what I have I love.  They can take my TV before my laptop and camera. Ya know? I even started taking these free online classes at coursera.org to see if I wanted to go back to school.

All day yesterday I kept wishing it was a dream. . They pushed through my patio door, and the first night I couldn't get it back on the track so I had to leave my house wide open.   I almost had a panic attack thinking about it. I still don't feel comfortable staying there.  Thank God for good friends.

yes it def it was a good thing you weren't home, material things can be replaced but i def know it sucks to get like things taken that have meaning like your pics, and stuff. I send you a big feel better hug. th_cheerup.gif

Lip Tars are wonderful! I'm definitely a fan. They require what I consider to be extra work since I need to use a lip brush to apply them, but I still love them. They're not sticky and the colors are vibrant. They feel comfortable on my lips and the peppermint oil in them doesn't bother me. I like to wear them alone and to also use them as bases for lipsticks to make the color last even longer. It's mentioned everywhere that you need the tiniest amount and it's very true. One tube should last you forever.

I wasn't tickled with the lip tar I purchased.

Didn't like the way it felt on my lips.

Returned it to Sephora.

I do like the Lancome Mat and Hourglass Liquid lipsticks, though.

That's too bad about the Lip Tar. I haven't tried those Lancome products. At least those work better for you.

^Yup!

 

The Hourglass Liquid Lipstick is da bomb!

It will be going into heavy rotation next week!

BTW with some coupon stalking I was able to get a pair of YSL Tributes in black suede from BlueFly for only $350 so keep hope alive. (Well, if you're gifting yourself LOL) Another little site I found that I like is Farfetch.com b/c they give you access to international boutiques that sell YSL, CL, Dior, etc. Free shipping and returns + I find markdowns on stuff from this year - not huge, but it's a sale. And who doesn't want to get their shoes directly from Italy or France or some other fun place? Makes them more special. 

-stalk Folica.com sales for your GHD

-stalk the Clairisonic thread in Deals & Steals on tPF. I just got a Mia for around $76. Not the color I wanted, but I was more interested in $$$.

I am just putting this out there just in case any of you speak to my husband. On my makeup wish list is the Makeup Forever Be Your Own Artist Makeup Table. It is has all of the founders favorite items from the line. It is some crazy price so I know it is just a dream. Dreams do come true, right?
Lol

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.

 

Wow 12 years! I've only been natural for a year. I don't wear it out though still waiting till I get the desired length.

post #104 of 129

WOW! 12 years is an accomplishment @ Cartoon Chic! I just made it 1 year post relaxer last weekend. Its getting harder and harder to blend the 2 textures, but I love the thickness. My hair has never been this thick (That I can remember)

Thanks! I should have hair dragging on the ground behind me after all of that time, but I don't. I wasn't as knowledgeable back then as I am now. I didn't know what I was doing until 2 years ago. The thing that single-handedly made the life altering difference in my hair is ---> WATER! I don't know about you all, but I was raised to avoid water at all costs with my hair unless I was washing it. My hair was always under-moisturized as a result, and that led to drying, split ends and breakage. My length would barely make it past my collar bone as a natural and my ends would be scraggly. Then 2 years ago I started moisturizing with water and sealing with oil on a regular bases. Sealing with oil made the second biggest difference to my hair.

 

I've slacked off in the last year, so there hasn't been any significant progress. I'm going to become more dedicated again. Maybe I should add the steamer to my list after all.

You must share your moisturizing technique, CartoonChic. Or we should start a new thread. LOL

I wish my technique was more glamorous, but it's really, really basic. I just fill a spray bottle with water, spray it over my hair to dampen, apply a pH balanced leave-in conditioner, then apply oil to seal in all of the moisture. I don't like a lot of fuss or muss. I need things to be as simple and easy as possible. Maybe we should start a new thread. Didn't mean to hijack this one with hair talk, presstoblend!

OK, what should we call the thread? I don't know if it should be natural hair focused or not. I think good hair techniques will work on both natural and relaxed hair.

post #111 of 129

I started a new thread here: http://www.specktra.net/t/181664/woc-the-hair-thread. I just called it The Hair Thread because I was drawing a blank on the name. I can change it to something else later.

post #115 of 129
My hair was in desperate need of some serious tlc and my Christmas wish was to get products to fix that so I finally picked up some MoroccanOil products last week.... I couldn't be happier, it's helped with my dryness and heat damage and made my tangles disappear smiles.gif

I went to the Taste Temptation Black Friday preview, so that's another thing off my list. Hmm, I may end up gifting myself a third of this list when all is said and done.

More things off my list. I picked up Lilium, Frenzy and Frisson with a 15% off coupon at Saks.com. But Mimosa is a real gift. A lovely Specktrette is sending it to me!  heart2.gif yahoo.gif

post #119 of 129
Ooh, I'm glad you got Lilium. It's my second favorite Chanel quad. I love Prelude, also.

I have Louise Young brushes on my X-mas list. I'm thinking of pulling the trigger now, but I might wait another week or so. I'm also thinking of those Clinique chubby pencils. They have new, opaque ones and there's a coral that's just my style. That's really it for me as far as beauty products. Oh, there's a MUFE powder foundation on the Sephora site that's not in stock yet. I check everyday to see if it's available. Getting impatient over here. nonono.gif

Cartoon how is your green Anthro dress working out? I was able to pick it up on popback Friday, but I'm afraid an XS will be too small for my curves.
