Over the last month I’ve prioritised weight loss in advance of our wedding and I’m determined that I’m not going to fall off the bandwagon now. Unfortunately just a taste of chocolate can throw me off track, so with Christmas on the horizon I’ve been investigating alternative advent calendars.
It’s no secret that I’m a huge fan of scented candles, so a Yankee advent would be the perfect start to the festive season. Featuring their seasonal tea lights and votives the frangrances are the perfect addition to a cosy night in. Spiced Orange and Berry Trifle sound simply delicious, helping your home to smell heavenly.
Filled with fabulous brands the Marks & Spencer’s Beauty Advent Calendar can simply be viewed as an investment purchase. Available from November I’m predicting a stampede for this festive treat! With 24 products worth over £200 this calendar retails for £25 when you spend £25 on M&S Beauty. Including amazing brands such as Rodial, Neal’s Yard, REN, Stila and Cowshed, each and every product will be a welcome addition to any make-up bag. My tip… start heavily hinting now for a very happy holiday!
Last but not least I was really excited to hear about the Bomb Cosmetics advent calendar. It’s no secret that wedding planning is stressful, and a relaxing bath is the perfect way for any bride to be to unwind. Including 12 mini bath blasters and 12 mini soap slices, behind each door is a stunningly scented surprise to ensure you remain squeaky clean in the run up to Christmas.
Our big day is on the 12th of December and I’m wondering if I can have special dispensation to start my countdown mid-November? The question is will Father Christmas still visit if I open those little doors in an advance of advent…
