Ingredients:

8 oz. baking soda
5 oz. citric acid
8 oz. SLSA
.2 oz. white kaolin (cosmetic) clay
.3 oz. xanthan gum powder
2.5 oz. refined shea butter
1 oz. kokum butter
1 oz. vegetable glycerin
.3 oz. safflower oil
.3 oz. Candy Crush fragrance oil

You will need a digital scale to weigh out all of the ingredients for my moon cake bubble bar recipe, minus the mica powder and glitter. You will also need a moon cake mold of your choice.

This sweetly scented moon cake bubble bar recipe yields nine amazing glittery pink bubble bars for a massive bubble filled bath. Sip on a glass of prosecco in the tub while enjoy a relaxing bath that takes you back to those carefree days of your childhood!

Begin by weighing out the shea butter and kokum butter into a small glass Pyrex measuring cup or a glass bowl.

Heat the butters in the microwave at 40% until almost fully melted. Then remove and stir until the rest of the kokum butter melts fully.

Next, weigh out the glycerin and safflower oil and stir into the melted butters. Set aside to cool down.

In a separate large 8-cup glass Pyrex measuring cup or large glass bowl, weigh out the combine the baking soda, citric acid, SLSA, kaolin clay and xanthan gum powder. (I highly recommend wearing a face protection mask for this step.)

Using a teaspoon measuring spoon, measure out one teaspoon of pink mica powder and add to the bowl of dry ingredients. Use a fork to combine the dry ingredients together, mixing well to ensure that all of the dry ingredients are evenly incorporated throughout. Set aside.

Now prepare your workspace for creating your moon cake bubble bars. Lay a piece of parchment paper onto a cutting board or cookie sheet. Choose the pattern you’d like to use for your moon cake mold and insert it into the press. Then add some glitter to a small bowl or plate.

Once your wet ingredients have cooled, but not started to solidify, weigh out the stir in the fragrance oil.

Now slowly pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients, mixing as you go, until the dry ingredients are evenly coated. Dust the inside of your moon cake mold with some of the glitter. Then take a scoop of the bubble bar mix and press one side into the glitter.

Fill the mooncake mold with the bubble bar dough, inserting the glitter side first until it’s filled. Remove any excess dough from the mold, then press out the bubble bar onto your covered work surface.

Working quickly, repeat this process until you’ve made all nine bubble bars. Then pop your bubble bars in the freezer for about 10-15 minutes to quickly cool them off and to help the kokum butter solidify.

Once cool, remove the moon cake bubbles bars from the freezer, then set aside in a cool dry location to dry – about one to two days. Then wrap and label your fairy dusted moon cake bubble bars as desired for personal use or gifting.

If you’d like to make this moon cake bubble bar recipe for products to sell then you’ll need to make sure you label your bubble bars according to FDA guidelines. If you’re unsure about the rules and regulations regarding labeling cosmetics, I highly recommend the book, Soap and Cosmetic Labeling: How to Follow the Rules and Regs Explained in Plain English, by Marie Gale to help get you started.

How to Throw a Unicorn Party!

Whether you’re planning a unicorn party for a child or simply a crazy fun cocktail party for adults, here’s how to throw a unicorn party that everyone will love!

How to Throw a Unicorn Party! Whether you're planning a party for a child or simply a crazy fun cocktail party for adults, here's how to throw a unicorn party that everyone will love!

My friend Cathy and I have birthdays just three days apart. Cathy really wanted to have a birthday party for our 42nd birthdays. So I threw her a unicorn party! While unicorn cakes and other crazy rainbow colored desserts are fab, we got back in touch with our inner child a bit for this birthday and instead painted paper mache unicorns!

How to throw a unicorn party! Pair a paint your own unicorn paint project with fun DIY unicorn party hats and unicorn party favors for a magical event!

Following are some of the photographs from our unicorn birthday party as well as a tutorial on hacking mini party hats into unicorn party hats, what you’ll need to paint your own unicorns, a pitcher margarita recipe (Cathy LOVES margaritas!) and ideas for unicorn party favors.

DIY Unicorn Party Hats

DIY Unicorn Party Hat Hack! These mini pineapple party hats were transformed to dreamy unicorn colors with spray paint and glitter!

To create my DIY unicorn party hats, I hacked some mini pineapple party hats that I found at Target.

DIY Unicorn Party Hat Hack! These mini pineapple party hats were transformed to dreamy unicorn colors with spray paint and glitter!

I used Krylon Short Cuts Spray Paint, a glitter set, and a clear acrylic sealer to transform them.

I placed all of the hats onto cardboard outside and sprayed each one a solid color with the spray paint. I painted four purple hats, four black hats and four blue hats.

After painting each color I threw/tossed/sprinkled different glitters into the wet paint.

I then went back and painted “highlights” of other colors onto each hat in a strip or along one side. So, for example, a black hat got sprayed with purple paint and a purple hat with black and/or blue.

I then threw/tossed/sprinkled additional glitter into the freshly spray wet paint.

Once that paint dried, I sprayed each unicorn party hat with a clear acrylic sealer to reduce glitter fall out.

Then I completed the hats by sticking the “pineapple” green tops into each hat. This step of course is optional.

All in all these unicorn party hats took no time to paint and decorate as there was no glue involved. (This is Cathy! She’s AMAZING!)

Pick your own party hat station and a DIY Unicorn Party Hat Hack! These mini pineapple party hats were transformed to dreamy unicorn colors with spray paint and glitter!

For the unicorn party I set up a “Pick Your Party Hat” station complete with stickers to decorate the hats if desired.

Paint your own unicorns!

How to throw a unicorn party! Pair a paint your own unicorn paint project with fun DIY unicorn party hats and unicorn party favors for a magical event!

When you’re turning 42 your birthday gifts are your friends and the many blessings you’ve accumulated throughout your life rather than physical gifts. So my gift to my friends for celebrating my life with me – and Cathy! – were these fun paper mache unicorns we all got to paint!

I picked up these paper mache unicorns from Target – one for every guest – and an assortment of paints, brushes and 0f course, glitter! I went a little crazy with Target’s Kid Made Modern line.

How to throw a unicorn party! Pair a paint your own unicorn paint project with fun DIY unicorn party hats and unicorn party favors for a magical event!

Supplies you’ll need for you and your guests to paint their own unicorns are: paper mache unicorns, acrylic paints, Krylon Short Cuts Spray Paint, glitter, Mod Podge and/or Elmer’s Craft Bond Fabric and Paper Glue, patterned tissue paper, stickers, small embellishments, Sharpie Paint Markers, foam and bristle paint brushes, small bowls or dishes to mix paint in, water glass with water for rinsing out brushes, and napkins or paper towels for drying brushes.

As my house is small and glitter is crazy messy even without margaritas, we had the painting portion of the unicorn party outside on my patio table. The party started at 8pm so I wrapped weather resistant white string LED lights around the patio railing, lit hand poured citronella outdoor candles, and turned the porch light on. It worked out beautifully!

And everyone painted really creative and amazing unicorns!

The food, of course, was my dog Jasper’s favorite part of the night.

For the pitcher margaritas I used a variation of a recipe I found on Mouth.com as I already had a bottle of Fruitlab Orange Liqueur from a prior purchase.

Pitcher Margarita Recipe

32 oz. Jose Cuervo Especial
12 oz. Fruitlab Orange Liqueur
16 oz. lime juice
4 oz. Tres Agaves Organic Agave Nectar

Instructions:

Combine all ingredients in a gallon sized pitcher. Mix well, then fill the pitcher the rest of the way up with ice.

Create a drink station with your margarita glasses, a bowl of ice, lime wedges and a plate with margarita salt.

Adult guests can make their own drinks as it suits them. If salt is desired on the rim, they simply run a wedge of lime along the rim of the glass, then turn it upside down and press it into the salt!

Because it's emulsified it doesn't feel oily on skin - making it the perfect option for exfoliating skin this summer! It's so easy to create and makes a great homemade gift too!

Why cucumber seed oil?

Cucumber seed oil is a carrier oil rich in vitamins B and C, essential fatty acid and minerals. As such, it is prized for its properties when used in both skin care and hair care applications. This highly moisturizing oil is beneficial for those with troublesome skin conditions such as acne, psoriasis, and eczema. It is also prized as an anti-inflammatory and for it’s anti-aging properties.

Aloe vera oil, which differs from aloe vera gel and is also a key component in my natural baking soda free palmarosa + lime deodorant recipe, is commonly used to treat skin inflammation as well as chapped skin. It’s also beneficial for burns, including sunburns, and can help to reduce the appearance of scars due to its high vitamin E content.

Cucumber Mint Sugar Scrub Recipe

Ingredients:

28.5 oz. white granulated sugar
2 oz. cucumber seed oil
6 oz. aloe vera oil
1 oz. refined shea butter
1 oz. emulsifying wax
.5 oz. cucumber mint fragrance oil
1/2 teaspoon jade green mica powder

Instructions:

You will need a digital scale to weigh out the ingredients for my cucumber mint sugar scrub recipe.

Because it's emulsified it doesn't feel oily on skin - making it the perfect option for exfoliating skin this summer! It's so easy to create and makes a great homemade gift too!

This recipe will yield three 9 oz. jars. I used 9 oz. clear straight sided glass jars with silver metal lug caps for this project. You can find these jars at SKS Bottle & Packaging here.

Begin by weighing out the emulsifying wax and shea butter.

Combine in a large 4 cup Pyrex measuring cup and heat at 50% power in the microwave until melted. Alternately, you may use a double boiler.

Remove from heat.

Weigh out the cucumber seed oil and aloe vera oil and stir into the melted wax and shea butter.

Follow with the fragrance oil, weighing it first, then mix in.

Next, in separate container, weigh out the sugar.

Using a measuring spoon, measure out the mica powder.

Add the mica powder to the sugar and mix well with a fork until the mica is evenly distributed throughout the sugar. (If your tub stains easily I recommend using Polysorbate 80 to help prevent staining and/or using a lesser amount of mica powder.)

Now slowly pour the sugar into the wet ingredients, whisking with a fork until all the sugar has been moistened and the ingredients are evenly distributed.

Spoon the scrub mixture evenly into three 9 oz. clear straight sided glass jars and screw on the lids.

Label as desired for personal use or gifting. (I used clip art I purchased from Mellenes Art on Etsy for my labels.)

It is important to note that as this is an oil based product, I did not include a preservative in my cucumber mint sugar scrub recipe. However, as your completed cucumber mint sugar scrub is likely to come into contact with water during usage, I highly recommend that you include a preservative if you are not using it all at once, are gifting this product or are planning to sell this product. There is a wide array of preservatives available on the market.

The preservative you use is your choice. I recommend choosing a preservative that is best suited for the makeup of this product and that fits your personal lifestyle choices. (One popular preservative is Optiphen Plus which is both paraben and formaldehyde-free.) The usage rate of your preservative will be recommended by the manufacturer at a percentage. Simply total the weight of all the ingredients in your cucumber mint sugar scrub then multiply by that percentage to determine the amount of preservative your product will need. Add at or below recommended temperature. You will want to use a food thermometer for this.

If you are selling your finished cucumber mint sugar scrub, then you will need to label your product according to FDA guidelines. If you are unsure about labeling laws then I highly recommend the book, Soap and Cosmetic Labeling: How to Follow the Rules and Regs Explained in Plain English, by Marie Gale.

.25 oz. emulsifying wax
.75 oz. sunflower oil or sweet almond oil
4.5 oz. white granulated sugar
1/8th teaspoon candy apple red crystal mica powder
.15 oz. sweetened pink lemonade flavor oil

Instructions:

You will begin by using a digital scale to weigh out the cocoa butter and emulsifying wax into a heat safe container.  (I used a 2 cup glass Pyrex measuring cup.) Heat in either a double boiler or in the microwave at 50% power until melted.

Next, weigh out the sunflower (or sweet almond) oil and stir it into the melted butter and wax.

Follow with the pink lemonade flavor oil, weighing it then stirring into the liquid oil, butter and wax.

Now weigh out the sugar into a separate container.

Measure out the candy apple red mica powder (or similar lip safe mica) and mix it into the sugar with a fork until the color is evenly distributed.

Pour the colored sugar into the liquid ingredients and mix thoroughly with a fork.
