It all started with Cocoa Butter Body Butter and it all ended with Brownies. Butter and Cocoa, cocoa and butter, cocoa butter became my theme for the week.
I shopped. I picked up some Cocoa Butter Body Butter and the Cocoa Butter Body Scrub (with a pretty aqua exfoliator) from The Body Shop, some Cocoa Butter Vaseline for lips at Boots and raided the cupboard and supermarkets for anything Cocoa and Butter related – dark chocolate, Banoffee hot cocoa and ingredients for Jamie Oliver’s Chocolate Brownies.
I think I must have spent the whole week smelling like Chocolate – being surrounded by it and covered in it – so it’s lucky for me that the smell and taste of chocolate makes you feel happy. All those endorphins boosting your mood, helping you feel less sad and a lot more relaxed.
I think that totally justifies having a left over brownie for breakfast. Just to end off a tough challenge and a hard, hard week.
This week’s challenge: Cover your entire body in cocoa butter & fall asleep.
I don’t know about you but I’m not sure if this week’s challenge is too much of a challenge. I mean, sure it will require a trip to The Body Shop to buy my favourite Cocoa Butter Body Butter (I might even splash out on the Cocoa Butter Body Scrub while I’m there) but that’s a small sacrifice that I’m willing to make in order to complete this week’s challenge.
And sleep, well, there is absolutely no question about it that it’s one of my favourite things to do. Eight hours a night and I’m so, so happy.
Maybe I’ll top this week off by seeing what other Cocoa related things I can incorporate and I’m not just saying that because all I can think of right now is a nice, hot cup of Cocoa.
Next week’s challenge: Drink 2 litres of fizzy drink (pop, soda, you know) & stay up until sunrise.
