Many of you don’t know this, but I was born in Georgia and raised in a suburb in Augusta until I was about 7 years old. I don’t remember much about growing up there, except for one thing: grits. I used to eat grits with cheese all day long. It was one of my favorite foods – my Southern […]

DIY Face Wash - Facial Cleanser for All Skin Types #DIY #naturalclean #essentialoils - DontMesswithMama.com

This is embarrassing to admit. I used to think high-quality facial cleansers HAD to cost money.
