DIY Facial Cleansing Gel

A little over a year ago, I began using essential oil face cleanser and I haven’t looked back since! I began by using a face wash I purchased from a company, and I really liked it.

Mocha Chocolate Chip Cookies

I posted this recipe on my first blog site, but when I transferred my posts over to this website, this recipe did not come along.  But it is too good to pass up, so I thought I would write a second post about it! I love the combination of coffee and chocolate.  Mocha drinks are delicious, and so are cookies,…
