Black Friday Get this Not That- Part 1

Here is my Black Friday must buy list so far.

Some of these older posts are from my relaxed days but I have used them on my natural hair and I still love them, which is why they remain on my Black Friday list.

Darcy's Botanicals

My Honey Child

I have never used the following products, but I am interested in trying them from My Honey Child:

She Scent It ( I may or may not make the following purchases)
Soultanicals ( I discussed this in part 1 of my BF get this not that video shown above)


Miss Jessies
  • Super Slip Sudsy Shampoo ( they used to have a bogo sale but now on the site I see a 40% off message on the site, let's see if that changes by BF)
Earth's Nectar
I am new to this brand but so far I am interested in this item -coconut curls.
I may want to check out Lime Crime cosmetics and Melt Cosmetics.
There are other items on my list, but they are not confirmed in my mind, so we shall see what happens with that. So my list this year looks like it will be pretty boring since I am mainly restocking, but you never know what will happen come BF.
In one of my other BF videos you will see a makeup item that I will definitely purchase.....stay tuned.
What are you picking up for tell :-)
Thanks for watching and reading.

I know you from....

Hello All

I saw a woman in a store and I knew she looked familiar, but I just couldn't remember where I had seen her. Had we met through a mutual friend? Was she an old school mate? Where did this woman make an appearance in my life? And then it hit me, "I knew her from Instagram." I struggled with what I should do with my new found information. Should I approach her, introduce myself and thank her for following me, or would that just be too weird. Perhaps I was wrong, maybe she only resembled the woman on Instagram. What added to my apprehension in approaching her is that I recognized her while she was at her place of employment, a place never mentioned in any of her posts. I didn't want her to feel as if I was invading a part of her life which she had not made public. So there I stood, motionless, as I grappled with how to address this situation.
Social networking is so often used as a tool to bring people together to share information, but it's also a means of escape for others. Some use social networking sites like Twitter, Instagram and Facebook merely to vent, seek encouragement or catch a glimpse into the lives of others. Despite our varied uses of social networking platforms, I think many of us can agree that social networking has in some ways altered interactions between humans. In years past had I come across someone who seemed familiar it's likely that I would have asked that person a direct question, hoping they remembered me too.
In the end,  I didn't say hello to her and I believe my opportunity was missed, because I haven't seen her since. Have you every introduced yourself to someone you only knew online? Do tell :-)
P.S. If you see me, do say hello, unless I look a mess then please wash that image out of your head and continue to watch my Youtube Kidding....kind of.
