Coffee+Cosmetics (And A Coffee-Themed Playlist Too!)

I’m talkin’ to the shadows
One o’clock ‘til four
And Lord, how slow the moments go
When all I do is pour
Black coffee
Since the blues caught my eye
I’m hangin’ out on Monday
My Sunday dreams to dry
— "Black Coffee"-Peggy Lee

Coffee is a drink that kind of has the world divided; either you love it or you hate it. I have a few recipes utilizing coffee here on the blog including Cacao Coffee Kombucha and Choco Coffee Nice Cream. I even did an event with She Forks Phoenix called Kindness+Caffeine where after a fun-filled yoga session, we enjoyed sponsored cold-brewed coffee from Mama’s Cold Brew. That being said, I would say that I’m probably somewhere in the middle on the coffee-lovin’ spectrum.

I know that all of that coffee-ness would lead you to believe that I am, in fact, a coffee addict. But the thing is, I don’t love coffee as much as I love the idea of coffee and coffee culture. (I can’t drink it after around 2pm or I am up all night with the jitters and anxiety!) My parents, on the other hand, are undeniably hardcore coffee drinkers; especially my mother who actually drinks a cup to go to bed! So I have fond memories of the house being filled with the unmistakable scent of coffee brewing throughout the day.

I love the smell of coffee and all it represents; the memories it invokes, the conversations people have over a cup of it and the way it brings people together. I’ve curated a list of clean coffee beauty products and a short coffee-themed playlist to go along with it.

The benefits of coffee have long been touted in the beauty world-the caffeine in it can de-puff the eyes and reduce dark circles, it contains antioxidants and is said to work wonders on cellulite and stretch marks.

So whether you’re having “one more cup of coffee for the road…” or you “need a little sugar in your bowl…” you will enjoy this post in all it’s caffeinated glory. But don’t just take my word for it, check out the products below and weigh in if you have a song or item that you think should be added to my lists.
