My 2015 Advent Calendar Picks

Once again it's coming up to the time of year where it is acceptable to eat chocolate before breakfast, but if like me you're not a massive chocolate fiend what else is out there for you? Well that's a very good question and one I may actually be able to answer...

Beauty Calendars really hit the scenes a few years ago now and have gone from strength-to-strength in terms of content and design. This year there seems to be more of the 12 day versions than ever before which is great because you can give them as gifts at Christmas and then the recipient can enjoy them over the traditional 12 days of Christmas... Just don't go expecting two Turtle Doves or five Gold Rings behind the doors!

There are so many options out there this year and of course many sell out the moment they hit the shelves but here are a few I've managed to find online and that I think most girlies would be happy to receive under the tree this Christmas.

The Ciate Mini Mani Calendar is the only full month option in my selection and I think it will always be in my top 5 options each year. Ciate nail products are second to none and behind each door you will find yourself a nail treat.

Another full month selection that is always at the top of my list is the annual Yankee Candle offering. The Reindeer Carousel is my favourite of this years and features a mixture of tealight and votive versions of the Christmas scents in store. 

One that is bound to be a firm favourite with beauty bloggers is the Lush 12 Days of Christmas calendar. I love that this is designed to look like a, albeit huge, book and it has some wonderful detailing on the box. Inside you will find year round favourites such as The Comforter and their Yuzu & Cocoa Shower Creams alongside some of their seasonal treats. I don't want to give too much away but you might even find Five Gold rings in here!

I have finally embraced the world of Charlotte Tilbury and as a result I am majorly lusting after her Book of Make-up Magic selection. Over the course of 12 days you will learn some her beauty secrets and find eleven products you will currently find in stores and exclusively receive her new product due for launch in January. The most expensive of my picks, but worth every penny!

FeelUnique.com is one of my favourite sites when it comes to stocking up on my makeup, with its fantastic selection of low, mid & high-end products just a click away at all times, so it is unsurprisingly one of my picks this year. The 12 Days of Unique Beauty calendar houses products for skin and hair as well as makeup making this the most varied calendar in my selection this year.

Finally, the bloggers choice. All hail queen Tanya. Tanya Burr is an inspiration to many, including me, her never say never attitude, her hard work and her achievements to date have won her a place in the hearts of many. I love her new range (her Aphrodite Lip Gloss is definitely an everyday favourite of mine) and so when I saw she was doing a calendar too I just had to have a look. Deck the Hauls is another mini calendar version which houses twelve Tanya Burr Cosmetics products and it looks the cutest on the shelf!

So there you have it! What calendar will you have on the mantlepiece this year? Let me know below and I'll catch up with you again soon. Until then though x
