I am so excited for it to be 1st December tomorrow! I have got two beautiful, beauty advent calendars to begin opening and I can’t wait! 

There were so many different and alternative advent calendars available this year, it was hard to decide which one to get. Some of the more premium ones were mega expensive and it was hard trying to pick ones that were good value for money, that also enclosed products that I would like and use. 

The first calendar I opted for is Tanya Burr’s 12 Days of Christmas advent calendar, which admittedly isn’t really an advent calendar as it only has twelve doors. But I thought it looked so cute and I have been wanting to try some of Tanya’s range of beauty products for such a long time now. It was also on offer when I bought it, only costing me £15 which was an absolute steal! I can’t wait to see what’s inside and I will be sure to give you a breakdown of each product when I have opened all of the doors.

This year I also picked up the No7 Advent Calendar. I had this calendar last year and it was filled with a lovely range of nail varnishes, skincare, eye shadows and lip glosses, as well as some beauty accessories like eyelash curlers and make up brushes. I hadn’t made my mind up as to whether or not I was going to get it again this year, but my lovely mum treated me (and herself) to one which was so lovely! 

I also wanted to give you a little update and let you know, in case you didn’t see my Harry Potter Tag video, that I will be partaking in Vlogmas this year. Last year I took part in Blogmas which meant that I posted a new blog post every day in December, all of which had a Christmas theme. I plan on doing this again this year, however, I will only be posting blog posts on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays. 

On A Wednesday and Sunday, I will be posting Vlogmas videos. I know that the general idea of Vlogmas is to vlog and publish every day in December, but with me still working a Monday – Friday 9 – 5 job I won’t have enough time to achieve that. Therefore, I will be vlogging every day, but only publishing videos on a Wednesday and a Sunday which will be made up of a couple of days’ worth of vlogging. 

Have you got any beauty or alternative advent calendars this year?
Are you partaking in Vloggmas or Blogmas?
