It's Sweet Bee here
I've been at home for christmas 
it's been so nice for a break!

I wanted to show you some of the things that I've made

 These are pots of zingy homemade sugar scrub
I used peppermint, grapefruit and bergamot oils to make it smell delicious

I made some pretty snowflake garlands to hang in the window
they're a bit hard to photo so I hope you can get an idea of how they looked!

because you have to have lots of food at christmas, I made some cookies
one of Nigella's recipes, decorated with white snowflakes and glitter

Mum gave me the job as sous chef on Christmas eve!
making, brownies, pasta salad, mini orange and raspberry jellies and helping with a tart!
Busy Busy!

My christmas was lovely
I hope you all had a lovely christmas too
My days are filled with revision now
back off to Southampton in a few days
Ready for some exams

Bye, maybe see you at easter
Love Sweet Bee
