So, it’s getting towards that festive time of year again… wish lists are growing and I am already salivating at the thought of stuffing my face with Turkey and roast potatoes.
But before we get to the big day, there’s advent – traditionally counted down with a candle, or a paper calendar with windows that open. Or of course, my old favourite – the chocolate advent calendar.
That was, until I received an email about this little beauty. A present in itself, this advent calendar doesn’t contain small chocolate treats – but each window reveals a new beauty treat. Including a mini Giorgio Armani Eyes To Kill Mascara, a 30ml Kiehl’s Creme De Corps and a mini YSL Rouge Pure Shine Lipstick…amongst many other goodies.
Ok, so it costs a few more pennies than the normal advent calendar (at £60) but I *really really* want one!
The calendar is available now at http://www.selfridges.com/ (do you reckon I have a hope if I send this link to the boyfriend…?!)
