I hope you all have been having fabulous holiday mini-vacations like me! I love waking up after 9a.m., not having a care in the world, and being able to do absolutely whatever I'd like. I also like being able to spend time with family and just time to be able to do the things that I never have time to be during the work week.
On the meat of this post, though: BLACK FRIDAYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY!!!!
So, my Black Friday story is a good one:
My blacklisted stores were Wal-Mart (bought SO much stuff) and Best Buy. I want to purchase a LeapFrog LeapPad for my 5 year-old son.
During the past week, I had been able to find the pink versions EVERYWHERE, but seemingly, the greens ones have been sold out all within a 300mi radius -_-. So...I knew that this Best Buy will have them due to them being displayed in their Black Friday Ad, so I knew I had to be there. I get there around 10pm and stand in line for 2 HOURS. After being about the 100th person inside the store, I inquire to the first sales person I see about where the LeapPad is located. "Gaming". Not there. Ask someone else. "Behind the land line phones". I round the corner....see the advertisement.....along with a man...grabbing the last one...in green. *Sigh*
Alas, the search continues.
Anywhoo, in terms of natural hair, I had been debating on what I wanted to try most in combination to what sort of deals were available. I was eyeing Bear Fruit Hair conditioner (hadn't decided which one), Bee Mine Bee Hold Curly Butter and Bee Loved Hair & Scalp Moisturizer, Karen's Body Beautiful Sweet Ambrosia (and some type of hair oil), and Anita Grant Rhassoul Deep Condish Cubes.
Well, I decided to go against the Anita Grant due to shipping costs and risks with lost/damaged items (which she warns against before purchasing). As for the rest, why when I was preparing to enter my credit card information, I just got a sudden impulsed and hurriedly closed out ALL of the windows. I don't need to buy ANYTHING.
That is....until OYIN HANDMADE ran through my mind. LOL! "Hey, they have a sale going on too!" Oh yeah! So I headed on over, and luckily, their discount applied to EVERYTHING - including sample sizes. *Does the shuffle*
I ended up purchasing the following:
|1 ea.||grand poo bar - succulent solid shampoo||$5.60|
|1 ea.||2oz Mini: Honey Wash||$2.80|
|1 ea.||2oz Mini: Hair Dew||$2.80|
|1 ea.||2oz Mini: Honey Hemp Conditioner||$2.80|
United States Postal Service (Priority Mail):
For a total of $20.20!!!!!!!!!!!!
YES! I'm excited to finally try these infamous products out and give you guys a review. Stay tuned!
