Hello and a happy day to you all!
How’s everybody’s week going so far? Yesterday was crazy windy here. We were actually in a high wind watch. Nothing says spring in Minnesota like 40 mph winds! 😉
Since it’s early in the week I think we should talk about coffee, don’t you? Let’s talk about how coffee keeps us going. It keeps our eyes open. It keeps us from wanting to take a little nap at 3 in the afternoon like we did when we were four. Basically, ala Gilmore Girls, it is the substance that keeps us going.
I adore coffee. I love drinking plain, black coffee. I love mochas and lattes. I like coffee beverages that look suspiciously more like milkshakes than anything else (although I don’t eat them as often). And I love coffee deserts. LOVE.
I mean a towering chocolate and coffee cake? What could be better?
So I decided that since I’m drinking it and eating it, I might as well slather it on my face too. Who’s with me? 😀
If you’re in need of some lovely exfoliating magic, look no further than this wonderful scrub. The coconut oil is so soothing on your skin. You feel so nice and pampered after you’re done. And it smells like you’re in a coffee shop. Yum.
So now that I’ve eaten coffee, sipped coffee, and spread it all over my face, I wonder how else I could use it? If there’s such a thing as mud baths and chocolate baths, why not submerge yourself in a nice coffee bath? 🙂
And hey, I’m sure there has to be some kind of recipe for putting coffee in your hair as a way to make it more silky and soft. I mean, there has to be, right? 🙂 If not, we’ll find a way! 😉
What are your favorite ways to cram coffee into your every waking moment? In cookies? In smoothies? As lotion? As confetti? 🙂
- ¼ cup coffee ground
- ¼ cup coconut oil
- ¼ cup packed brown sugar
- Mix together in a both and store in an airtight container. To use, wet down your face, rub the scrub all over, and rinse.
