I Stopped Drinking Coffee for 3 weeks and Here’s What Happened…

I’m currently on a detox at the moment, not because I feel like I need to lose weight, but because I made a smashing tiramisu the other day and my body needs to breathe (no, NOT the juice cleanse). I’m not one for a buffet of sweets, but being stuck in a town where there’s …
