DIY: cinnamon honey masque

I am so in love and so about love that sometimes I forget that there was ever a life before now.

And then when my love leaves for the weekend I fall back in love with myself because I rock.

I have been experimenting with total girl projects all weekend and though I miss my much more attractive half, I have to say I am having so much fun revisiting my sexy mama self. This was just too much fun not to share ...

Honey-Cinnamon Masque
1 T raw honey
1 T ground cinnamon
1 t nutmeg

Mix everything together until it is well incorporated then slather and spread on your face. Leave on for 15-20 minutes. Cover face with warm washcloth and slowly wipe away (do NOT get into your eyes, cinnamon burns in a scary way when it's where it's not supposed to be). This could also serve as a gentle exfoliation if you gently rub in circles.

My skin was so smooth and glowing afterward, unlike any other homemade masque I've ever made!

It's delectable and totally fabulous ... xo
