To Make:

Mix ingredients together well. If mixture feels watery, add a teaspoon of white flour. This mask can keep in the refrigerator for up to two weeks.

To Use:

Brush the mixture all over face and neck. Leave on for 5 minutes and rinse with warm water.

The Hippie Chick

There’s nothing fussy or frilly about this all-natural flower power hairstyle, so of course Cozy calls this look The Hippie Chick. Do this fun and trendy hairstyle this Mother’s Day with your little one!

What you’ll need:

  • Mini elastics
  • Feather accessories
  • Comb

Step 1: Part combed hair in the center.

Step 2: On one side of the part near the hairline, pick up a 1-inch section of hair and braid it. Secure with a small ponytail holder.
