    The closest Target is 45 minutes away so I used my gift card online. Ordered at noon one day and it was delivered to me at lunch the next! Wow, that's fast!  I had fun picking out lots of goodies. Thanks again!

    @ellaj ; I already have so much hair stuff to use up, so I only bought one hair item (a flavor of Suave that I never saw around here). I love Sally Hansen Insta Dri so I got some new colors!

    @jeepcurlygurl, I am going to pick up a bottle of the Mixed Chicks leave in conditioner from Target along with some Burt's Bees lip balm. 

    I am SO appreciative of the amazing gift box of goodies that I received, so yes, many many thanks! :)

    I am so grateful for the generous prize I have already received! So many things to try! Thank you so much! :)

    I'm also so excited about finally getting to try the things I have been rec'ing as on my list of things to try :D and so many things I've been secretly eyeing for so long: Definitely Kinky Curly Come Clean, Camille Rose Naturals Algae Treatment, and As I Am Leave-in. Also, KC Control Custard, CRN Style Milk, UFD Curly Magic, Herbal Essences Set Me Up, Aussie Instant Freeze, Suave Essentials Ocean Breeze...

    Also, last week I drove to Seattle for my haircut, and my phone wasn't pairing with my speaker on the drive up, and I was able to pick up an audio aux cable for the drive back.

    I realized I needed to pace myself a little. So I ended up ordering KC Come Clean, CRN Algae Treatment, CRN Coconut Water Leave-in, As I Am Leave-in, and UFD Curly Magic. I think these are going to keep me busy experimenting for a while. I feel like it's Christmas. :)

    However, I guess Target thinks I live in the boonies because they are splitting the order, and I won't get everything until Thursday.
