The countdown is on: 24 Days till Christmas! When I was a kid the first day of December meant a new Advent calendar filled with my favourite thing at the time: chocolate. I’m thrilled that there’s now Advent Calendars made for my other love: makeup and beauty. This year, the calendar that caught my attention is the Body Shop Advent Calendar: 24 Days of Joy*.
How can you not feel happy when you see a box like this?
I am not good with surprises, and when I first got this, I was immediately tempted to open all the windows to see what was inside. I was a good beauty blogger and patiently waited till December 1st. And that my friends is today. Woot woot!
Behind window #1 is….
Strawberry Shower Gel, a long-time favourite of mine. Yay! The calendar features 24 of the Body Shop’s most popular products so I’m pumped about the next 23 days.
Priced at $75 in Canada (with a value of approx. $135), the Advent Calendars can be found in store only. I have a feeling that if they are not sold out already, they will be. I heard they sold like hotcakes in the UK. And, if you want to know what’s in rest of the windows, check out British Beauty Blogger’s post here. I won’t be looking…well, at least that’s the plan.
How is it the Christmas season already? Where did the year go?
