Advent Calendars for Grown Ups (No Chocolate included!!)
With the Christmas season approaching like the speed of light, its time for us to turn in to deranged women! Arranging gifts, parties and the dreaded Christmas outfit (something that will look great on the day but at the same time stretch nicely round the Christmas dinner baby!) so we all need to step back and pamper ourselves, its only fair!
So before it all sets in why not treat yourself to your own unique advent calendar? This is not for the kids, you will not find miniature chocolate bars or Rudolf shaped choccies in these! These are for you and only YOU! I'm talking about Advent Calendars that will not add pounds to your hips, no, these wonderfully wrapped gems are full of make up, skin care, nail polish and even candles to get you party ready and feeling fabulous!
