Pinch punch it’s the first of the month! And it’s not the first of any old month, it’s the first of December – which means it’s the first day of Advent! You all know how much I love Christmas, and also how much I love you all (aww) so this year I have decided that I will blog every day leading to the big day, and share a little Christmas nugget to you all – thereby creating an advent calendar of sorts. It’s my gift to you, my lovely readers – a melange of tid bits I love about Christmas and festive things to share with you all. So here goes (drum roll…..) presenting:
To kick us off I wanted to share with you my advent calendar of choice for this year, which sadly is just a lusting. As a child I was allergic to chocolate and so didn’t ever have a chocolate calendar. My Mum prefered us to have religious calendars anyway, but since becoming an adult I hadn’t really gone for advent calendars at all. That was until a few years ago when I discovered Hotel Chocolat’s beautiful dark chocolate calendars. Just amazing they were. But last year I realised I was going days without opening my chocolate door and I think I even might have thrown the thing out without finishing it all…… shock horror! So this year I was delighted to find an advent calendar that was almost certainly made with me in mind.
The Ciate advent calendar gives you a mini nail polish for every day of advent, including some of their pretty caviar beads and a funnel to use them. It’s a thing of beauty but alas at £42 a tad expensive. I can dream though can’t I?
Do you normally have an advent calendar, and if so what have you gone for this year?
