Crayon Lipstick!

The darling daughter and I were surfing the interwebs and eventually came across a video on  how to make your own lipstick using crayons and coconut. That’s it. How cool is that? Since darling daughter is Lexi Darling-in training, it’s important that she is able to create vibrant lipstick colors and this method is amazing and super simple! Because they are crayons, the lipstick is non-toxic. I do recommend using Crayola crayons for best results.  (I’ll post the video we watched at the end.) Click on the first image and click through for directions:


*****ETA (5/11/14) Use 1 tsp coconut oil and 3/4 tsp shea butter to get an even better result!! (Melt coconut oil and she butter together, add crayons, etc) You can find shea butter at amazon.*****

I do recommend watching the video for more information:


Lexi Darling in training

My darling daughter has fallen in love with the character of Lexi Darling from Siren Song (cleaned-up version, of course) and enjoys playing with her wigs and make up and crazy outfits. Today’s outfit is a combination from last year’s dance recital and this year’s recital so it isn’t too crazy. However, she put on false eyelashes for the first time ever and I’m a little bit jealous at how well she did. She’s also experimenting with glitter on the lips and the result is pretty impressive and sparkly.

FOT21A5Darling daughter has once again made the dance team for the 2014-2015 season at her studio and she is pretty excited, especially now that she knows what to expect. We love the studio and all of the teachers there!!
