Crafty Lady: DIY Edible Blood

Crafty Lady: DIY Edible Blood

This blood will dry sticky and stay relatively in place. It is completely edible and actually kinda yummy (well its basically chocolate syrup lol). It will stain clothing, however if you get to the stain quickly with some stain remover you should be okay.

Quick & Easy Natural DIY Solution to Inner Thigh Darkness

Embarrassing confession here – I have inner thigh darkness. For those who don’t know what it is a dark discoloration that can occur on your upper inner thighs, armpits, or any place where skin rubs together. It is an extremely common issue that women and men of all sizes can have, though larger women are more prone. Quite often it is only a very small, almost unnoticeable patch at the top of the thigh (the way I know this is from the 6 million+ pole dancer crotches I have seen LOL).There are several causes of inner thigh darkness: Friction aka Chub Rub – If your thighs meet you can be prone to inner thigh abrasions and darkness especially if you are active and sweat a lot. Pole Burn – Laybacks and pole sits can cause abrasions that add to inner thigh darkness. Sun Exposure – The inner thigh skin is very delicate and can react poorly to too much sun. Hormonal Imbalance – Specifically around your menstrual cycle your thighs can become darker. Medications – Several medications can cause inner thigh darkness, but oral contraceptives are a common one. You will want to talk to your doctor about a solution. Acanthosis Nigricans – This condition makes dark patches and discoloration occur on your skin. Again talk to your doctor for a remedy. In my case I have thighs that definitely meet, I wear dresses basically always, work out quite a bit, have stretch marks, and am ridiculously pale to set off the whole thing – YAY!  None of it would really be an issue except that I pole dance...

Pole Geek + Pole Friends: Easy DIY Personalized Pole Dancer Holiday Mug

*disclaimer* Pole Friends has partnered up with Pole Geek for this and a second post. While this mug was gifted to me by Pole Friends, this post and its contents (including the type of post, words, photos, etc) are wholly my own. I have been following Pole Friends on facebook and instagram for awhile now and am in absolute love with the Erica’s ADORABLE illustrative style and joyful pole art. If you follow Pole Geek on FB you’ve probably seen me repost her images all the time, so I was super excited when she contacted me to partner up! I was able to select the items of my choice and felt this “Fun & Fitness” mug was perfect for my fitness fanatic followers. Not only is Erica’s design too cute, but it’s a really well made item, these pieces are done through Society6 so if you have purchased through them before you know they have great quality. Those we pole with are more than friends, they are family, and with the holiday season upon us I wanted to find a unique way to show our pole friends how much we care.  This pole dancer holiday mug DIY is not only SUPER easy, but perfect to give to each of your pole buddies and should be personalized with their image!  I can’t tell you how excited I was when I came up with this crafty gift and hope you all love it as much as I do!  What You Need: Adorable PoleFriends Mug (check out all of PoleFriends products HERE) pic of your pole friend on the pole Santa shaped...
