Astonished by Advent Calendars



Advent calender

Well into October and officially summer being over, the festive season is quickly approaching guys.

After years of being in the habit of leaving my decisions to the last minute and having to exist vicariously through YouTube videos, I was determined to get an order in for a beauty advent calendar so I could relive the daily excitement I experienced as a child (Dispute not being that into chocolate).

If you follow my social media, the intention to purchase was always there, but I would struggle to decide what one and then before you knew it they would all sell out.

So while it may seem nuts to be researching advent calendars which you can count down to Christmas 2019 in October, the early bird catches the worm or, the best beauty advent calendar. Unfortunately in doing my research I have had to expose myself to spoilers which is a not good, because to me being surprised is a big part of the fund, however with prices starting from £50 I would like a good idea of what I am getting, but hopefully everyone will not have the exact products under the same days.

If you like me are in the process of researching advent calendars before committing your hard-earned coins, let me take some of the leg work out of your research process, so that the only thing left for you to decide is if you will stick to tradition and open each door daily or binge open all the goodies on the first day.
