Advent Calendars | Blogmas [Day 7] ❄️

I have a confession to make – I’ve never had an advent calendar. I know, I know! Impossible!

The reason being that they don’t sell those over here, in Narnia.

However, I still, without any exception, browse to see which advent calendars are trending. I also tend to jot down the ones I really love, so I can cry silently over them. This year, I thought I’d share that list with you, so here are some of my favourute advent calendars of 2015. 😊


1) The Body Shop

TBS always has an amazing advent calendar in store (which I know through other people’s Vlogmas videos or blog posts) and this year seems to be no exeption.

To my understanding, there’s a green and red version of this advent, probably depending on the country selling it.

PRICE: $129.00

2) Charlotte Tilbury

Okay, this is such a beautiful advent calendar, I was trully in awe. However, when I looked at the price, you could say that I was… shocked?

But then, I looked at the contents of it. Yeah, that pretty much explained everything.

PRICE: £150.00

3) LUSH

I actually had no idea LUSH even had an advent calendar out, but apparently they do! I actually think it’s such a great idea on LUSH’s behalf that they’re doing this, as their products are a hit anyways, so getting smaller versions of 24 different products seems like a wonderful deal. 🙂

4) Ciarte London

This is the only advent calendar that I’ve actually seen in stores, but I couldn’t take any photos, as the lovely security goons wouldn’t let me…

So, stock photos it is!

This seems like such a lovely item for all the nailpolish lovers out there and if I were one, I deffinitely wouldn’t hesitate when it comes to getting this.

5) Yankee Candle

This. Might. Just. Be. My. Favourite. One.

(I’ve most likely said/thought that about every single one of these so… yeah…)

But seriousley. I love candles. Like, you don’t understand – I don’t just like them, I love them. And if I had it my way, I’d have at least 3 in every single room. But, that is not really realistic, as my family hates those and won’t even let me burn a single one when they’re home. So I just live in the store, smelling away, wishing I could have one of those…

[I’ve literally created a list of ‘Candles To Buy’… yes, I am that lame…]

So, my story of candle-loving aside, I think this is such a cool thing and am super glad Yankee Candle does this. (We don’t have Yankee nor Bath and Bodyworks over here… we don’t even have a Primark to buy candles from their ‘Home’ section… So the options are pretty scarce over here)

6) Benefit Cosmetics (Party Poppers)

Okay, since I am pre-writing this, I’ll just say this. I was searching for this year’s advent calendars and, obviously, I thought of Benefit. (as their latest advent calendar was a hit) I got this link that lead me to their website and what did I see there?

Out. Of. Stock.

It was early November. What?!

Well, obviously it wouldn’t be available when you’re reading this, but still… Wow!

Set Worth: £79.17

  4. I love this post! I’ve never had an advent calendar either, but I’ve been on the hunt. Besides all of the lovely beauty related advents, I would love a chocolate one just the same!
