6 Advent Calendars and destination for Do It Yourself ideas

Have you already your advent calendar? No!? Well me too, so here what are in my opinion the most craved and particular advent calendars for my dear beauty fanatics, and friends.
Don’t worry, you can always open more days at a time, if you’re late or just curious.

1 For your inner diva, the Eylure Advent Calendar (£50) is the latest lash wardrobe: 12 pairs of falsies in different styles among “Lengthening”, “Volume” and “Naturals” with a full size of eyelash glue. More than 12 or 24 days of fabulous lashes!
2 December is here but it’s already freezing cold, here some hot teas to enjoy: 24 different selections like Japanese sencha green, jasmine green tea, duchess earl grey, the traditional breakfast blend, rooibos and flavours like gingerbread chai, lemon, verbena and peppermint.
Each tea is contained in lovely brown pockets, enough for 2 or 3 cups.
Included are an spherical infuser, washi tapes and treads to make your advent calendar. This is the “Advent Calendar of Tea” by Post Teas (59€).
3 Cold drinks that make you feel instantly warmer? Rum!
The “Rum Advent Calendar - Master of Malt 2015 edition” by “Drink by the Dram” will bring you 24 exotic rum, tiny little bottles of high quality rums each labels and sealed with was. £149.95 for a Caribbean postcard-styled box of joy and warmth.

4 Lush for Christmas has “12 Days of Christmas” Advent Calendar: a “book box” with 12 great holiday products.
They aren’t a surprise but they are all spicy, sweet and hydrating bath and body items such as soaps (Yog Nog), bath bombs (Butterbear and Golden Wonder), bubble bars (Holly Golightly, Cinders), body lotion (Celebrate), shower creams (Yozu and Cocoa), bath melt (Snow Angel) and others... Prices vary depending on your country (49,95£/80€)
5 L’Occitane en Province has some flowers for you, this advent calendar is sold out online, you can search it in the boutique... a beautiful box with a nice Christmassy and parisienne scene illustrated by Kanaco, from the magazine My Little Paris, with 17 different beauty products like 5ml Pivoine Flora eau de toilette, 10 ml hand creams (Delightful Rose, Cherry Blossom and Almond Delicious – my favourite), 10 ml Shea Butter foot cream, Verbena shower gel and body lotion and more...
It deserves some extra pics!
6 Ciaté Mini Mani Month (49£) means 24 days, 24 products: 17x Mini Paint Pot (5ml), 3x Mini Treatments, 2x Mini Glitter Topper,1x Mini Crystal Nail File and 1x Full Size Glitter (13.5ml).
A beauty like this one, with a very glamorous London-inspired package, has been sold out for a while and now it’s back in stock!

Loads of make-up brands have their own beauty calendar (Sephora, The Body Shop, Makeup Revolution, Benefit to say a few), as well as other beverages and, of course, chocolate companies but these ones are what I’d love to open each day.
I would jump from my bed in order to open a little window for a little goodie.

    1. Me too, Rajshree!
      I'd love to live in the UK just for the sake of buying great things for a couple of pounds! In Italy Lush products' prices can be very high, despite some goodies deserve to be bought! ;-)
      Thanks for stopping by and lots of love!

  2. Troppo carine mia cara queste proposte :-)
    Un bacione
