The Holiday Spirit


Today we are having our bureau Christmas party with some white elephant. I made home made sugar scrub for my gift. I always find it hard to pin down a recipe with specific measurements because I always try to go for consistency and feel rather than precision. But, here’s what’s in it:

  • Cane Sugar (usually I use organic raw sugar but it was cheaper)
  • Coconut Oil (love Trader Joe’s)
  • Honey
  • Flaxseed oil (I know it’s good internally, but when I read that it helps rosacea and eczema, which I have both, I thought I’d throw some in)
  • Peppermint essential oil — added enough for scent, but not enough to make you feel mentholated.

I even put on lipstick and eyeliner for this one.

Still haven’t figured out Christmas. Besty and boyfriend invited me to see Rogue One with them on Monday.

They invited me for dinner last night and we had a lovely German dinner complete with roasted taters, kraut, sausage, and green beans.

And we watched Love Actually, which is now my favorite Christmas movie — mostly because swearing and tits. But is pretty darn cute

And all I really want for Christmas is my bills paid.

And a bottle of Macallan’s 20 year scotch.
