Wickedly Good

fullsizeoutput_478If you are looking for a DIY present this year, a home-made lip sugar scrub might be just what you need. Most store-bought scrubs may taste sweet, but they contain ingredients that should not be ingested. This scrub combines simple ingredients that are entirely edible.
IMG_0410I first thought of this scrub when I read the ingredients on the Wickedly Prime Salted Cocoa Truffle Spread.  Sunflower Oil, Coconut Oil, Cocoa Powder–these ingredients appear in a lot of high-end makeup. The fact that it does not contain palm oil is also a benefit.
This spread can be purchased on Amazon.com. It tastes delicious–like the inside of a chocolate truffle–and can be used in a variety of recipes. (I topped my holiday scones with this spread.)
The other ingredients can probably be found in your kitchen–brown sugar and honey. I used  Manuka Honey because that is what I had on hand. But any type of honey will work.
IMG_0406Ingredients:
3 heaping tablespoons of Salted Cocoa Truffle Spread
3/4 cup of Brown Sugar
3 tablespoons of honey
Materials:
Measuring Spoon
Large Spoon for stirring
Bowl
2 Four Ounce Ball Jars with lids
Directions:
Mix the ingredients in the bowl and stir until smooth. You may need to add a few drops of water if the brown sugar is hard or clumpy. Pour into the jars and cover with the lids.
This does not need to be refrigerated and makes a perfect gift for a person who has dry, flaked lips due to the cold weather.

I hope you have enjoyed my gift countdown. Next week because of the holiday I will be re-running some of my favorite posts of the year. I hope that you will enjoy them, and continue to enjoy my blog in 2018.

What will the new year bring us? Only time will tell!

Note: This is not a sponsored post. I purchased all of the products myself.

COMP

When hydrologists inscribe the consciousness of a human mind onto a single drop of water, a Revelation sweeps the land. The wealthy race to upload their minds into self-contained virtual realities nicknamed Aquariums. In these containers people achieve every hope, dream, and desire. But governments wage war for control of the technology. Terrorist attacks cause massive destruction. The Aquariums fail. Inscribed human minds leech into the water cycle, wreaking havoc.

Street gangs rule the cities in the three years since the fall of civilization. Sixteen-year-old Cami and her younger sister Alby struggle to survive. Every drop of untreated water puts their lives in peril. Caught and imprisoned by soldiers who plan to sell them into slavery, Cami will do anything to escape and rescue her sister. Even if it means leaving the real word for a life in the realms, a new game-like reality created by the hydrologists for the chosen few.

But life in the realms isn’t as simple as it seems. Magic, combat, gear scores, quests, and dungeons are all puzzles to be solved as the sisters navigate their new surroundings. And they encounter more dangerous enemies than any they faced in the real world.

Time to play the game.
