Advent Calendar Wishlist

Monday, 12 October 2015

Christmas is well on the way, and the stores and websites are filling up with festive goodies!
After seeing the gorgeous Hayley's advent calendar wishlist on her blog, I just couldn't wait to make my own - there are so many out there and some might even surprise you!

Ciate Mini Mani Month advent calendar, £49, Selfridges
I love to have pretty nails during party season, and this gorgeous Ciate advent calendar can guarantee you'll have a fresh paint every day! It contains 18 different coloured polishes as well as nail treatments and a nail file. This calendar is kind of pricey but I love the Ciate polishes - the are hardwearing and the colour range is fantastic.
Available now.

Benefit Party Poppers Advent Calendar £34.50
Benefit always do brilliant calendars - not that I've ever owned one, they just always look so fun! This contains 12 windows each filled with a mini Benefit bestseller goody; from 'They're Real' Mascara to 'Watts Up' highlighter! I did kind of expect to see a mini 'Roller Lash' mascara in here but nevertheless the mini sizes are great for trialing products you haven't used before and to keep in your purse at all those festive parties
Available from 15 October.

Body Shop Advent Calendar, £60/£80
The Body Shop is offering 2 different calendars this year to suit all 'budgets' .. although I don't think either of them are really in my price range its nice to dream!
The standard version will be green and include lots of mini products while the Luxury version will set you back £80 but will also include some full size goodies.
Each calendar will have offerings from the Body Shops Skincare, Bath and Body, Makeup & Fragrance ranges so you are bound to get something you like or discover old favourites!
Available 28 September.

Yankee Candle Advent Calendar, £27.99 
Probably the calendar that I am wishing for the most! The 2015 Yankee Candle Calendar comes in this darling little house design and includes seven seasonal scents in tealight candle form - 'Bundle Up', 'Candy Cane Lane','Icicles', ' Spiced Orange', 'Snowflake Cookie', 'Winter Glow' and 'Christmas Eve'. There is even a special treat on Christmas eve included too!
I am addicted to Yankee Candle and I think this would be a great way to get into the festive spirit!
Available now.

I haven't used lots of MakeUp Revolution products but the ones I have, have really impressed me so I think this calendar is a great way to try out more of their range - and each window contains a full size product so you really do get a lot for your money, plus you even get a special gift on Christmas day! How exciting! I'm not sure I like the the packaging all that much as its not overly festive, but it is in keeping with the Makeup Revolution product packaging so I suppose it is well thought out really!
Available now on Superdrug website.

This is more for Dan than for me! I usually buy him a box of the Hotel Chocolat milk chocolate penguins at Christmas but now I know that they do advent calendars I think I will get this for him instead!You can choose between a milk, white or dark chocolate calendar and each one includes 24 Christmas shaped chocolates including reindeer, snowman and penguins amongst others!
Available 12 October.
