Monday Musings Vol. 7

Hello, all!
Sorry for being a bad blogger and MIA for the past week, I got a bit caught up in the craziness of the holidays and visiting with family and friends. But now I'm back with so many things to show you! The backlog of photos in my computer is getting to be quite impressive. I happily spent the majority of yesterday indulging in a Buffy the Vampire Slayer marathon with my sister, which we continued until 2AM. But now it's back to the grind, I have a lot of thesis work to do, as well as preparing for my senior recital. I took the past week off, except for a bit of thesis research.
Now that the holiday gift-giving has passed, I can reveal one of my recent secret (or not so secret anymore) projects!

I've been having a blast playing around with making lipglosses. It's definitely been one of those 'learn as you go' experiences/experiments, with a few minor mishaps. For example, peppermint oil is STRONG and will make your entire apartment smell strongly of peppermint if you're not careful. Just Peachy's lipgloss series, which can be found here along with her other awesome DIY posts, was definitely an inspiration and a large part of why I decided to give making lipgloss a shot.

Hope you all have had a wonderful holiday!

Yay! I hope you share more about your process! Making lipgloss is very much a learn as you go thing. Would love to see what has worked for you! Sounds like you had a great Christmas!

Peach: I'm away from my mad sparkle scientist lab at the moment, but I'll be back to it in about a week :) I'll put something together then.

Lillian: Thanks!

SWEET! I love making my own stuff, but thus far have not tried out any lip products. I'm really liking the look of that purple gloss!
