Along with the 1st December comes all of my favourite things in life; It’s finally acceptable to have Christmas CD’s blaring out on repeat, snuggling with my boyfriend watching all of the best films ever (Elf is of course my favourite), and thats not even to mention the Christmas shopping, parties, adverts, baking, buying and receiving presents, Greggs festive bakes, winter wonderland, decorations and everyone just generally being in great loving moods! But there’s one symbolic thing that particularly marks the 1st and that’s opening the first window of an advert calendar!
Although I’m just as happy unveiling a cute christmassy Cadburys chocolate each morning, I can’t help but notice all of these incredible fashion and beauty advent calendars being released! An accessory/ beauty product a day- who wouldn’t want that?!

How amazing do they all look?! My favourite has definitely got to be the Yankee Candle calendar as I’m such a huge fan of their candles and I think a scent a day is such a cute idea! It’s also really reasonable too, and is a great way to have a taster of all of their scents! Just think how delicious your house would smell by the 25th...
Second up would have to be the beauty calendar from Boots. Again, I think it’s really reasonable for what you get; featuring a variety of high street and higher end brands. Soap and glory, Juicy couture, Nails inc, Rimmel and Paco Rabanne are just a few of the well loved brands you can unveil each morning!
Obviously if you’re looking to splash out for an extra special month of December, no girl would turn down the Selfridges calendar.. although I could see myself loving every single one of the sample sizes and wanting to purchase the full sized products after! That could be rather dangerous and expensive territory!
What do you think of accessory/beauty advents? Do you have a favourite?
