HELLO BLOGMAS!


Well hello there December! You've came by so quickly. How the hell am I 21 in ten days.. I still feel (and act) like a 14 year old at heart - I'm petrified! Being a christmas baby I always look forward to this time of the month and I've quite clearly went a bit mental on the advent calendars this year. I thought what better way to introduce Blogmas with a preview of what I got under the 1st of December doors today, I was so tempted to rip open all of the doors on both calendars - I can't contain my excitement. 

Lets be realistic here, I'm not a major blogger. I'm a pretty lazy blogger, I don't stick to schedules and if I tried to blog everyday I would probably have a mental breakdown by the time christmas arrives. That being said, my version of Blogmas is just little old me trying to knock a few more posts out than usual haha - so stay tuned! 

Anyway, my first calendar I received was the Johnny Loves Rosie gingerbread advent - how adorable is this packaging? too cute. Behind the first door was a pair of gorgeous emerald studs, I'm obsessed with dark greens and burgundy shades when it comes to christmas so these are a perfect pair. On the back of the calendar there's a sneaky preview of the jewellery you can receive in the advents and I can't wait to get my hands on it all. If you want to see the earrings up close, follow me on instagram and have a peek at the unboxing on my story today.



Gingerbread Man Advent Calendar - £27.50 - Link here.

This advent in particular is on sale for £27.50 at the mo too. Considering you get a different piece of jewellery behind each door thats basically almost a £1 per item! Go treat yourself girls or pop one on your christmas list and hint on to your boyfriends, for that price you'd be rude not too.

The second advent is the calendar my boyfriend bought me as an early christmas present, 10 boyfriend points for him. I'm obsessed with Nyx soft matte lip creams and this advent holds 13 lip creams and 12 eyeshadows - how exciting! This one was a little pricier, coming in at £60. But for the amount of products you receive I think that's pretty reasonable. Behind the first door today was the gorgeous Monte Carlo shade that I've been lusting after for quite some time so you can imagine how happy I was to open that door this morning.






Nyx Advent Calendar - £60 - Link Here.

As you can see by the swatch, Monte Carlo is the perfect berry shade for winter and I can't wait to have pretty red lips this christmas. I wonder what other shades are in this box, the suspense is slowly going to kill me off. I hope you're all having a perfect start to December today and I can't wait to read some of your Blogmas posts.

Have any of you got any other advent suggestions? I'd love to know!
Thanks for reading, J x
