Up to this point, brushing her hair and clipping her nails has been your thing.
Now it’s time for your tinkerbell to learn how good grooming happens in the real world.
Initiate her with a mobile spa party by Lorena Cedeño. Cedeño (who also owns the children’s shop Benini Bug) brings everything you need to indulge ten little Avon ladies in two hours of yogurt facials, nontoxic manis and pedis, hair styling, and minimalist makeup.
Dress-up necessities like tutus, petticoats, and tiaras are provided for souvenir photo ops.
Which will forever remain the domain of the mama-razzi.
