Lucy Luxe does Viva Las Vegas! Part 11: Car Show Cruisin and Forget Me Not Goodies!

Updated: Jan 2

It’s car show day and boy, am I excited?! I have some cute little goodies I am SO excited to share around today!

Given my career background, I thought long and hard about what kind of cute little things I would like to make and bring with me to gift to my fellow finalists and also when chatting to other festival goers at the one and only VLV20 car show. I wanted a little forget me not that was a little unique and encompassed who I am as a pinup.

After lots of researching, I decided on a couple of different pieces for both the ladies and gents!

Every lady needs to keep her pout pretty and what better a way than with some LUXE LIPS Lip Balm! I did my research on how to go about making my own natural lip balm, the container options I could choose from and the kind of branding I’d like on the little lip pots!

Actually making the lip balms wouldn’t have been possible without the efforts of my man David Gatt and my good friend Diamond Dubbellyou who spent the best part of a Saturday preparing and creating the lip balms with me! It was great fun (they may dispute this comment) and I got a good arm workout from grating the beeswax! Naturally given my love for sweets, the balms are Cotton Candy scented.

I will note, I’m all for any guys who want to beat the chap and have some Luxe Lips of their own or any ladies who want a Little Lucy on their ride. Gifts for all! ❤

I’m super lucky to have had a little Aussie Posse along with me on this once in a lifetime trip and we thought we should ensure we all looked the part! My amazing David brought my daydreams to life in the form of “Lucy’s Ladies and Lucy’s Lads” T-shirts! Sadly David didn’t get on board with wearing a “Lucy’s Lover” T-shirt as Diamond had suggested. Hehe! Special mention needs to be made for David who spent many hours with me designing ALL of the things. Hopefully I wasn’t a troublesome client!

Though the t-shirts we originally only designed just for us to wear at the actual event in Vegas, I was surprised when chatting about it with friends that some of crew back in Australia were interested in wearing them in support of me also.

To my further surprise, I ended up having enough demand to order over 30 of my shirts for both ladies and lads back home! Talk about chuffed! I was genuinely blown away by the people in my life, their genuine interest and desire to support me in this venture! A couple of people even asked if I would sign their shirts for them! This is the first time I’ve done this and considering I am very much a plain-Jane, just your average girl it certainly made me feel quite special and loved!

Finished off with a handful of flyers each, we are ready to hit the car show and get chatting. I’ve learned from my mother and could definitely talk under water so I’m really keen for the opportunity to get out and get mingling! It’s really nice to be able to meet new people and give them a little token from this little ol’ pinup all the way from Oz! Let’s do this!!!
