Best Beauty Advent Calenders 2014


Hello Lovelies!

Fall is here in full bloom, the air crisp and nights chilly. We love lighting scented candles up in the evening for that extra cosy feeling and coffee is always a delight. While we enjoy trees turning their leaves to majestic colors of rust, yellow, brilliant red and all kinds of shades of brown one thing is for sure, it is time to start thinking about Christmas! While the tradition of advent calenders and countdown to anticipate Christmas is not new, from paper calenders to chocolate to winter magic, all of these wonderful counters make the Christmas festivities even more enchanting. We all need to start somewhere so I thought, being a beauty and lifestyle blogger that I would start by shortlisting the best Beauty Advent Calenders for this year. I really cannot decide which one is the best as all of the below are such a treat but maybe I would go for the Selfridges Enchanted Christmas one. Almost all of these brands released advent calenders last season which were a massive hits with all being sold out hence the competition.
