EASTPOINTE, Mich. - A 12-year-old girl is celebrating the release of her new fragrant beauty line for girls, "Fruitti Tutti Beauty," with a launch party Saturday afternoon.

Adonai Alexander started the business from home and has wanted to be an entrepreneur for a few years. She began planning her business with help from her parents, Gabriel and Evelyn Alexander.

"She's been dreaming of (this for) a long time, since she was four years old, to have her own company," Evelyn said.

Her beauty line currently offers eight flavored and scented lip glosses including the flavors Sweet Smacking Strawberry, Mellow Melon, Bubble Pop, Tangy Tangerine, Bippity Boppity Blue, You're so Grape, Cheers to Cherry and Aloha.

"We started off with lip glosses, and soon it'll be bath bombs, and it's just so exciting," Adonai said.

The launch party will start at 4:30 p.m. at the Better Life Fellowship Hall in Eastpointe, located on Stephens Road. The party will include activities for girls ages 5-13, and a portion of the proceeds from each sale will go to The Congo Project for Girls.

"The little girls will enter and come down the pink carpet, and we're going to have photo opps and paparazzi," Evelyn said.

Adonai hopes to inspire other little girls to follow their dreams.

"I'm so excited for the launch of Fruitti Tutti Beauty," Adonai said. "I hope to be a true inspiration and motivation to little girls everywhere. No matter how young you are, you are capable of great things. I am here to set an example to young girls everywhere."
