I know that I have been missing in action, you all, but here I am.

I took a break from thrift shopping for a while to truly wear most of the things that I have purchased over the years.  Been seeing a lot of thrift hauls and they really inspire me to see what is available all over the country.

It is amazing to see the great buys and the beautiful clothes that you all have scored. These videos feed my thrift shopping addiction.

U Hair Styling Gel

I purchased this hair gel from my local dollar store and it says that it has a strong hold but it doesn't hold very well but I use it on my natural hair after I wash and condition it and it keeps my hair in place.

I love it because you get a good amount of gel for a dollar and it smells like strawberry Jello.

Lusti Oil Moisturizer Hair Lotion

This was my first time trying this hair moisturizer and it made my hair soft, manageable, and very easy to comb.  I purchased this product from Dollar Tree and it made my hair less dry without feeling greasy.

This moisturizing lotion comes in an 8 fl oz bottle.

Salon Selectives Argan Oil Hair Treatment.

This hair treatment is one of my favorites.  When I first saw this product at Dollar Tree I thought the jar was too small because it is only 5 oz but let me tell you, this product is very rich and you only have to use a little bit and it really conditions your hair really well and it smells so good.

This is a top of the line product that is only a dollar from Dollar Tree and if you see it, you should grab three jars or more.

Don't be afraid to buy hair products from your dollar store because if you buy it and you don't like it, it is only one dollar so you haven't wasted much money.

Sporty Clothes Can Be For Both Men And Women.

I saw these outfits in my local store and I just love these outfits for men and women.  I can remember the days when women loved to wear these kinds of suits many years ago and it was a breath of fresh air.

The nineties and early 2000's are back in fashion and I am seeing a lot of outfits that I used to wear are back with a vengeance.

So glad that a lot of the cookie cutter fashions are out the door!

Gorilla Snot Gel Review.

Gorilla Snot Gel Review.

Hello, Ladies and Gentlemen, I have seen so many reviews on the Gorilla Snot Gel and I didn't like the name of the product at all but saw that a lot of you liked this gel and had good things to say about the way it made your hair look and the way it holds.

This was my first time buying this particular brand and when I opened the cap I was actually glad that it was a blue colored gel, not the gel that comes out of your nose. lol. 

I smelled the gel and it had a very strong minty smell and it had the exact smell of toothpaste.  I didn't care for the fragrance at all.

It was a nice size container so what the heck, I was going to try it out and see what this gel was about.

I squeezed some out and rubbed my hands together before I put it on my hair and it was very sticky, I said: " this is not going to well." Don't like products that are overly sticky.

Put it on my hair and my hair didn't feel good but when I looked in the mirror this product worked just like the reviewers said all curls were defined and it held very well.

It made my hair look so pretty but I did see a little build up in the front of my head.  Maybe I should have dampened my hair a little before I applied it.

There were some things that I didn't like about this gel as previously stated but I am going to continue to use the rest of the Gorilla Snot Gel because I do like the way my hair looks and it only cost $2.99 and you are getting 340 grams and I think that is a lot of product for that price.

It made my hair feel hard to the touch once it dried.

I think that they should keep the gel blue but make the gel with no fragrance because it felt like I was putting toothpaste on my hair (Yuck, Yuck)!

Many retailers sell this product and you can also look online to order.

If You Are A Minority Business Do You Expect Only Minorities To Support Your Business.

If You Are A Minority Business Do You Expect Only Minorities To Support Your Business?

Let's talk business for a minute, a lot of people think if you are a minority business owner, only minorities should patronize your business.

I think if you are of this thinking you are headed for a downhill spiral.   Walmart doesn't just cater to a certain race of people and all kinds of people shop there.

This is what makes a great business because money is coming from all communities and it is the perfect way to have a successful business.

You will continue to stifle yourself if you want to put pressure on one race to fully support your business because it isn't no one's responsibility to make your business great.  if you sell the right products, you will be able to grow in more successful markets.

Take pride in your business and treat all people fairly, don't take shortcuts because bad reviews will kill your business.

Stop shortchanging your customers and expect them to pay more for an item that they can get somewhere else cheaper.

Update your business to keep it looking new and attractive so people will continue to support your business because they will see that you take pride in it.

Example: I went to a restaurant and the workers were very rude and they served my food on chipped plates. Needless to say, I haven't been back because that is just wrong, wrong, wrong!

Be friendly and inviting when someone visits your business and you will notice that people will feel good about patronizing your place of business.

Bottom line, go to your favorite business and see what makes them popular and successful and follow suit and you will be successful as well.

Today Is World AIDS Day And ( Blind Item)

Today is World AIDS Day And (Blind Item)

Aids, World Aids Day, Date, Time

Today is World AIDS Day and can you believe this deadly disease has been with us in the United States Of America since June 5, 1981, although there are reports that there is a possibility that AIDS crossed from monkeys to humans as early as the 1920's.

AIDS was known as a primarily homosexual disease in the early eighties and when heterosexuals started getting infected with AIDS it brought a new face to this disease.

There are also people who got this disease from blood transfusions. A lot of babies were born with AIDS and died but some were saved due to treatments after birth and they are living with AIDS.

So many people died from this disease because there is no cure for this disease but now there are many treatments that are prolonging lives.

AIDS had a negative stigma attached to it and it still does to a degree.  Many families have lost family members to this disease and still hope for a cure.

(Blind Item)

There is an entertainer who is very popular and he is well known.  He is also known for having wild parties and orgies.

He doesn't appear to be sick but I saw a lady many years ago and she was really sick and she told someone in my presence, that she was married to this entertainer at one time and he infected her with AIDS.

All these people who are bragging about having an orgy with this entertainer have put themselves at risk and some know it but there may be others who don't know about it.

This entertainer looks like the picture of health and looks better than ever.

What I want you all to understand, it is your duty to protect yourself from AIDS and other diseases, you cannot trust anyone to tell you whether they are ill or not and some people appear like they don't have this disease.

I do feel sorry for wives who have been exposed to this disease from a cheating spouse because married women are not expected to ask their husbands to wear a condom but if you have any knowledge of your spouse cheating you better ask your husband to wear one or get a female condom for yourself.

Do not put your life into someone's hand.  It is your responsibility!

Today we pray for anyone who has been affected by this disease that one day soon a cure will come and you are not forgotten.
