12 Days Left To Shop!!! Rural Glamour Gifting Ideas!! : Stocking Stuffers with Softlips and Scunci...

Wednesday, December 22, 2010

Even beauty addicts need stocking stuffers...like lots of them.:) lol! So I have a couple that any girl would appreciate.

Throw in some Softlips Conditioning Balms in the Holiday Flavors! I really love having lip balms everywhere: the bathroom, my shower caddy, my coat pocket, and of course my purse!


The new Softlips limited edition holiday flavors- Sugar & Spice, Winter Mint, Sugar Cookie, Sugar Plum Berry and Mint with a hint of Vanilla provide a tasty winter treat for your lips!  Each irresistibly delicious flavor  also features SPF 20.sun protection (suggested retail price for the Holidays 5-pack $9.99). 
 Hair accessories are currently on my "to tackle" list, meaning I'm still trying to find grown and sexy accessories that are good for my hair. Scunci has Scunci No Slip Grip Evolution Hair Ties and Scunci UpZing are great for hair junkies like me!

Looking to “do it up” for the holidays?  Look to scunci hair accessories!  The scunci UpZing double combs can create dozens of styles from polished ponies to glam up-dos, and new Evolution hair ties, headbands and claw clips utilize new stay-put technology to hold your style until you take it out!

Check out my up do with the Scunci UpZing!!!

12 Days Left to Shop! Rural Glamour Gifting Ideas!! : Gift for Your Hair Obsessed Friend...Infiniti Pro by Conair....

My natural hair is so tightly coiled, I don't have a curl pattern. I'm constantly trying to "stretch" it...give it length and even some texture, since "curl cremes" don't work. I've seen several times, girls on You Tube do "blow outs" on their natural hair to stretch...so I decided to do one too.


I use the Infiniti Pro by Conair to blow dry my hair. Here's are some great facts about the dryer:

-It has a AC motor for high performance like salon dryers
-3 heat settings 2 speed setting
-A cold "blast" button
-Ionic technology
-Ceramic technology




This is a picture of my dirty, tightly coiled hair ( I'm a 1 year, 1 month natural). I often twist my hair damp or wet to stretch for length...

This is my hair blown out with a heat protecterant applied with the Infiniti Pro. The weight of this dryer is heavy, like an expensive pro dryer which I like. It blew my hair dry pretty quickly. The hot setting was not too hot which I was nervous about since I'm used to a hot dryer, but that was when I was relaxed and I thought the hotter the better.:(

I was most impressed by the cold blast setting that was amazing. I've never owned anything like that. Its cooled my hair, sealed the cuticle and felt amazing at the same time!



Here's the hair "stretched". The Infinti Pro done its job. I highly recommend buying one for your hair obsessed friend and yourself! The retail for this dryer is $29.99 and less ( I saw them at Walgreens and WalMart and Amazon). Plus, it is compared to the T3 Featherweight, Chi Pro GF1505, and FHI Pro 1800.

Fresh Coat: Revlon Beach and Kleancolor Fireworks....

  I love glitter polish , especially during the holidays! Plus, glitter tends to stay on longer, less chipping than a creme or shimmer. I did a two coat base of  Revlon Beach and two coat overlay of Kleancolor Fireworks....

Revlon Beach is one of the scented polish that Revlon did ( it smells like roses), I got it at Big Lots. Kleancolor Fireworks is from my local BSS....
With flash....and cuticle oil:)
