Advent Calendar Picks


Fast becoming the alternative to the traditional chocolate advent calendar, the beauty advent calendar is huge this year! So many brands are doing this now and I’m sure we are only going to see even more next year. So what’s on offer and are they value for money?
I have to say that I am really excited about this and am still a bit unsure which one to go for as they really are all very impressive and there is quite a bit of variation in them all too! Here’s a list of the best i’v found and they range from quite reasonable in price to uber luxurious and amazingly expensive! I’v also included some jewellery advent calendars.
1. Ciaté 
This is great if you are a nail lover! 23 mini Ciaté nail polishes and 1 full size bottle. Perfect to keep you stocked up on the latest colours and nail trends! £49

So which one was your favourite? There were a few others like the Liberty advent calendar and the Jo Malone version but they sold out so quickly that you’ll have to wait until next years calendars come out to sample how great they are!
