Do you get an advent calendar for yourself?
Which one would you choose?


  1. Oh wow, I didn't realise there was so many advent calendars around!! I'd have the cheese and the wine, they would have to go together, or is that just too greedy ;) I've just bought my older daughter a Body Shop Advent Calendar, I bought the the M&S one last year. We've also had a Smiggle calendar in the past.

    1. There is so many now. I think you can get just about anything in a calendar. lol
      I think if you get the cheese one you would have to get the wine one too. hehehe Thank you!

  2. Hi Kim, I never realised there were so many different advent calendars. I did treat myself to a Yankee candle one last Christmas. I wouldn't turn my nose up at any of those! The Reeses peanut butter one would be more than welcome as would the Pringle one.

    Thank you for linking up with the #MMBC.


    1. They are all fab aren't they. I would have one of each if I had the money. lol x

  3. I didn't know amazon does a beauty calendar. I treated myself to no.7 beauty calendar, as I use most of the items (except nail polish & eyelash curler). Don't think I will buy another M&S calendar, as I haven't used even a half from last year's. Off to check out the amazon one, lol

    1. The Amazon one looks quite good. It seems well worth the money x

  4. It's incredible the amount of advent calendars on offer this year. I don't recall there being so many in past years. #mmbc

  5. Oh I've got quite a few of these on my post that's about to go live! Great minds think alike ;)
    The Pringles one would go down well in our house. I had a Yankee candle one last year and it had some lovely tea lights in it x
