The time has come again, it is the time of the year where we can talk advent calendars!
Advent calendars have always been one of my favourite things about Christmas, you get a new surprise every day.
Growing up I have had homemade advent calendars from my parents & of course chocolate calendars.
I must admit that I haven’t outgrown the whole chocolate advent calendar thing & this year is no exception! I got two!
The last couple of years I have treated myself with different advent calendars, I try to get new ones each year, & they can be everything from beauty, to make up, jewellery, candles & more.
This year I bought two different Christmas advent calendars, one I haven’t had before & one I had last year.
So I have already broken my own pattern, by buying one I tried before. I just loved it so much last year, that I need to have it again this Christmas.
Yankee Candle Christmas Advent Calendar (20,99£)
As I said I bought a Christmas advent calendar I also had last year, which is the advent calendar from Yankee Candle.
It contains 20 scented tea lights & 4 scented votive candles. I don’t think it is a surprise, cause I have mentioned a lot before, I LOVE scented candles! I also love Christmas so that is why Christmas & scented candles mixed together couldn’t be more perfect.
The Yankee Advent Calendar doesn’t contain 24 different scented candles, but 5 different tea light scents & 4 different votive candles.
Last year the scents were very Christmassy & wintery & I expect them to be the same this year. I can’t wait to see what scents they have come up with this year.
NYX Makeup Advent Calendar (60£)
The second advent calendar I got this year is a new one, I don’t think I have had a makeup advent calendar before.
So I thought that this year I would get a makeup calendar, just to try something new! I chose a makeup advent calendar from NYX Cosmetics.
I have seen & heard a little about NYX Cosmetics’s makeup, but I have never tried it myself.
Therefore I thought that the advent calendar would be the perfect opportunity to try their products.
The NYX advent calendar contains 12 lip-glosses & 12 eye shadows & I can’t wait to see & try them out.
December has officially begun & so has all the Christmassy cosiness, & one of those things is opening your advent calendar.
Take Care & Merry Christmas
