I seriously can not believe that it is the first of December today! This year has absolutely zoomed by and I can't get over the fact that it will be 2016 in just a few weeks time! Before the new year however we obviously have the count down till Christmas Day! I really do love this time of year, getting all excited for the big day, doing lots of Christmas shopping and of course, opening my advent calendar each day! 

Normally I opt for a Chocolate one but this year I decided to treat myself and I forked out for the No.7 25 Days Of Beauty Wonders calendar. I have been wanting a beauty calendar for a few years now, ever since I saw the one created by Benefit Cosmetics, but they have always seemed so expensive. This one by No.7 however was £38 which I understand isn't amazingly cheap but it promises to be worth the price tag. It contains quite a few full sized items as well as skincare, makeup and eyelash curlers. I am so excited to open each of the little doors and find out what is inside!

Another ritual I will be doing daily on the count down to Christmas is blogging. That's right, this year I have decided to opt into Blogmas. For those of you unfamiliar with the term it is the idea that bloggers will post new content daily on the build up to Christmas. I am so excited and have some great content lined up which I can't wait to publish.

So without further a do, here's to a great December filled with mulled wine, Christmas parties, mince pies, hazelnut lattes, wooly hats, knee high boots, red lips, polished nails, winter walks, Christmas cards, candles galore, Christmas films, blankets, shopping, Christmas markets and much much more!

Are you taking part in Blogmas? Did you get yourself a beauty advent calendar?
