Christmas List for 2010

Not what you think - amidst all the retail madness, advertising, I am glad to say that I don't need anything this year. There are several things I can do without and have had to really test myself this year with the want vs. need argument constantly. I want things, but I don't need things. I used to shop every week. Now I feel guilty when it comes down to spending $2 more on drugstore shampoo/conditioner because I didn't get it on sale the prior week. My indulgences have been on food, because at the table is where I spend most of my valued time with my family/friends/sistahs/kasamas. I'm hoping that my friends and family will consider donating to these charities and organizations. Not only during the holidays, but year round. If not with $, with your time. These are just a few of the orgs I work with and have taken interest in within the Seattle area. =)

YouthCare (ending youth homelessness) -

Skincare Routine

Cheap and steep. Just the way I like it. If I could, I would be slathering my face and body with La Mer, but that would require a deeper pocketbook. I am 31. I don't look it and nor do I feel it. I would like to prolong my youthful appearance as long as I can and use items that aren't going to make me broke. I'm always on the lookout for prods that people swear by or call their HG (holy grail) so let me know what your recoms are.

Here is my mix of products that I use on the daily/weekly.

-Cleanse 2x with Olay Foaming Face Wash for Sensitive Skin.
-Moisturize with up&up daily facial moisturizing lotion for sensitive skin.
-Hope In A Tube around the eyes.

Once a week
-Exfoliate with Clean & Clear Oxygenating Facial Scrub.
-MAC Volcanic Ash Thermal Mask.
