Vlogget: How to Sneak A Bulldog Into A 4 Star Hotel

ever wondered if you could sneak a 50lb bulldog into a 4 star hotel?  well now you know!  this is the first vlogget covering the “Ooby Reunion Mission” trip from Iowa to Florida.

we had spent hours going from shady to shadier motels in st. louis trying to find a place to sleep for the night.  finally, around 11 at night, we find a decent hotel.  but alas, they are not pet friendly.

so my travel companion renee sweet-talks the check-in girl, who says we can bring our “small” dog in under a blanket thorugh the side door.

And here is the resulting madness.

How to Make Your Own Vegan Chapstick or Lip Balm: Fast, Easy, & Cruelty-Free

i’ve made my own chapstick for quite some time now.  today i share with you how to make your very own in this quick tutorial, with ooby the bulldog as my most helpful assistant!

it’s really simple and takes only 3 ingredients, though you can choose to add any essential oil(s) for your desired scent.

here are the instructions:

Ingredients:

2 Tablespoons candelilla wax(about 1 oz)
2 Tablespoons coconut oil
2 Tablespoons shea butter

*optional: any essential oil(s) for scent

Supplies:
12 lip balm containers (or more/less, just edit the recipe)
glass medicinal dropper

Pot w/double boiler OR

Metal or glass bowl (if no double boiler)

 Directions:

1. Get your water boiling then place wax in the top of the double boiler or your makeshift bowl over the boiling water.

2. Once was is FULLY melted, add in coconut oil and shea butter and stir now and then until all ingredients are melted.

3. (Optional) If desired, add a few drops essential oil if desired. (I personally love the natural smell)

3. Using a small medicinal dropper, transfer the liquid into the lip balm containers. Add a few extra drops to the top after filling each container as the ingredients will shrink as they cool.
3. Cool completely to harden. Cover with cap and decorate or label as desired!
