Santa Claus is a Black Man

By January 27th, 202191 Comments
Santa Claus is a Black Man“That’s beautiful. What is that, velvet?”Coming to America
So I convinced my dad to dress as Santa in order to avoid the ridiculous lines and overpriced but somehow average pics with an anorexic, or worse, mullet wearing mall Santa.

Remember him? Absolutely ridic. Almost made me cuss.

Plus, I thought ‘Grandpa Santa’ would make for one of them ‘kodak moments’ that somehow eluded me at the Pumpkin Patch.

Although an excellent plan in theory, my child- who has somewhat outgrown her earlier and hilariously random phobias- was absolutely petrified. Despite my best attempts at a proper introduction, Boog went krraaaayyyy!

While Gia and I were in the other room, my mother paraded my velvet and faux fur wearing dad into the living room. I then walked in real casual like and eased onto his lap trying to keep Gia from knowing the goings on.

  • Brit says:

    i'm so late, but that series of photos is hilarious! po baby couldn't get right. been hearing good things about this lipstick; i just found a really nice bold red at sephora. it's like a deep berry color with the slightest hint of orange to it. it's my first red and i love it!

  • Nhraif says:

    That was sooo funny. Now I know not to feel bad when my little one screams at the thought of Santa. Well, it's not that you didn't try.. A mom's work is never done πŸ™‚

    Gia is smarter than a 5th grader. You can't pull nothing over on her. Glad she settled down so you could get your picture!! OBTW the lipstick looks very nice!!

    You should also try MAC Red….NARS and Chanel also have some nice red shades. Any woman can wear red,you just have to know your undertone…..are you cool( you have red undertones, you look better in silver) or are you warm(you have a yellow undertone and you look good in gold)? Check out Michelle Phan she spoke about this. I have a warm undertone and MAC Red works well for me. My sister is cool and she uses the same color and it looks nice on her as well.

  • Sophie says:

    Wow your hair is so long and looking great! And wow, these Boogie stories always have me cracking up! She's so beautiful and so hilarious at the same time! Your captions just slay me

    OMG, Nikki– you look so much like your sister in that last picture! Gia is too cute! She wasn't having ANY of that ish. Other than dealin' with the terror of Black Santa, I hope you had a great Christmas!

  • Anonymous says:

    LOL awwww poor Boogs, she looks terrified!! haha Well you look like you had a wonderful Christmas, God Bless you and your fam πŸ™‚

  • Anonymous says:

    May I just say:

    a) The black Santa Claus is genius! Love it and I plan to do that w/ my children and
    b) LOVE the Mac Ruby Woo ! I have it and it's the best matte lipstick I've ever encountered! Also, the MAC Rebel lipstick is very pretty. It's a satin lip stick but it has amazing shine and you almost never have to re-apply it.

  • Hershe_82 says:

    Beautiful pictures! Merry Christmas to you and yours! I pray that your was day was a Blessed one filled with lots of joy!

  • Maria says:

    OMG the 5th pic of her crying had me rolling!!! Hysterical! Love the lipstick on you. I think it looks amazing and I might just run to the MAC store tomorrow and buy one for myself.

  • Erika says:

    Love the hair and the mac ruby woo lipstick, it's perfect for us chocolate girls!

  • Anonymous says:

    Nikk, you had me rollin' with laughter with your captions for what baby Gia would be saying if she could talk. The pictures are a treasure, just adorable. Your hair was "the whip" girl. You looked good and YEP the lipstick was working for you. Did I say your hair was gorgeous? Okay, just checking. (LOL) Have a wonderful New Year.

    OMG those pictures are too cute! I used to be terrified of santa too so I know how the little one feels…..Glad you got at least a couple shots…..

    And the lip color and hair are beautiful!!


  • Anonymous says:

    Funny pics! Your hair looks different and cute. I definitely think the bold lip is stepping up your sexy, but I don't Ruby Woo is YOUR shade. I suggest looking for a shade of red that's a little darker and warmer (like Chili, Dare You To, or Russian Red in the MAC brand).

  • Nichole says:

    I'm liking the lipstick and hair. Very nice. Your dad definitely makes a better Santa.

    Am I wrong for not taking my 1 year old to see Santa this year because I knew she would probably kick Santa in the man parts and run in terror?! I love your family pics!

    Thanks ladies and I hope your tomorrow is full of joy, love and things of that nature πŸ™‚

    So excited about the Ruby Woo… I was a little self conscious while rocking it at the mall, but after a while it grew on me. Plus, it got hubby's stamp of approval ;0)

    By the bye–

    hair- twist-out (8 of them) on a dirty 2.5 week old blow-out (twisted with a little Dax)

    Sweater- Gap

    Jeggings- PacSun (of course!)

    Boots- Steve Madden… I wear them EVERYDAY!

  • Finn says:

    Boogs' screaming pic definitely had me rofl! She's grown so much!

  • Hairscapades says:

    Nik, you are trying to kill 'em!!! You look amazing!! What did you do differently with your hair? You're showing length!!

    And, OMGawh, Gia and Santa Daddy is hilarious!!! I almost cried laughing!!

  • Rhonda C says:

    First, I love your look. I've been sporting Ruby Woo for a few years now (recommended by Mop Top Maven). She was on point and so are you with your appropriately-red pout! Me likey!

    As for Gia and the pic with Paw-Paw-Santa, a freakin' riot! Who can blame the poor child? Wasn't it obvious that some man in an oversized red velour suit ate her beloved paw-paw? Where's the outrage? Where's the urgency? Someone call 9-1-1 stat? And……..get me the hell outta here!

    Your family shenanigans are hilarious! Wish I were there!

  • MsFarrah says:

    I am laughing while trying not to let tears drop at Gia and mall Santa(WTH?!!)
