I Detoxed From Coffee for 2 Weeks… Here’s What Happened

If you read my recent blog post on my favorite Healthy Matcha Latte Recipe, then you know I mentioned how I can’t wrap my head around the fact that there are people who can function during a long work day with zero caffeine in their system. Well… I’m pretty sure I jinxed myself, because just a couple weeks after that I was hit with a horrible stomach infection and had a forced coffee detox. Like we’re talking 15 days of literally NO caffeine of any sort people. 15!!! Keep in mind I had worked my way up to a solid 2-3 cups of coffee per day when this happened (sometimes 4- not proud). So as you can imagine, the detox experience wasn’t the most pleasant experience I’ve ever been through. Considering if you should do a coffee detox yourself? Here’s what you can expect: #1.

I’m not interested in all the b.s. skincare trends that come and go these days. And I couldn’t even keep up with them if I wanted to! I’d have a 600 step skincare routine by now if I bought every new “must-have” product that comes out. What I am interested in are tested products that WORK and are actually going to help me achieve my #skingoals. I posted my skincare routine when I originally launched Ask Abbey back in February- so naturally, my regimen has already changed since then (lol, do we expect anything less?). You know it’s not my style to keep beauty secrets from you guys, so it’s about time I share an updated skincare routine so I can dish on what’s old and what’s new.
