Chocolate and Beauty Lovers unite!

During Winter, there’s nothing like warming yourself up with a big, cozy mug of rich hot chocolate. But what I just discovered, is that hot chocolate isn’t just for rosy cheeks when you’re cold. With some added flour, it’s also for rosy cheeks in need of soothing and plumping!

Press Play and get this easy, super fun recipe for your newest skin obsession – the Hot Chocolate Face Mask.

This mask also makes for the cutest homemade gifts – just skip the milk, mold into cubes, and individually wrap! Then when ready to use, mix each cube with 3 tablespoons of milk.

Here’s to spreading the joy of great skin! Be sure to use organic ingredients, of course. X

Since we spend most of our winters inside our homes, it only makes sense that we put some effort into bringing joy to our surroundings as we hibernate. This means surrounding yourself with things that make you feel cozy and warm like hot tea, pillows, candles, and family. Here are some DIY ways to bring hygee into your home.
