Hope you’re well. How has been your weekend? Mine is always too short! I feel that every Sunday just has twelve hours instead of the normal twenty-four! I wake up with a lot of expectations on about what I’m going to do and then at night I didn’t do half of the things I have to do!
This week, Joana and I decided that today was the perfect sunday to do this post, a little bit different. So, instead of showing you new beauty products on the market (don’t worry, next week we will have more to catch up!), we are going to to talk about Advent Calendars.
First, because we are in the ending of November, so in a few days, you can start opening your advent calendar. Second, we want to buy one, but we still couldn’t dedice which one. Third and last but not least, it’s almost Christmas, so it’s time for you to start entering in the holiday spirit – this week I read an article that people who make the Christmas tree earlier are happier. Is it true?
If you are like me, you probably already have your Christmas tree for weeks and you’ll probably open your entire advent calendar in one day (the one you get the calendar on your hand).
So before you buy another standart Chocolate Advent Calendar, give your taste buds some rest (and maybe because someone here is allergic to chocolate). Take a good glass of wine (or tea) and read our this post.
With no more delays, here are our choices for your perfect advent calendar. Some are expensive, but we had the attencion to choose a few more affordable. And sometimes affordable doesn’t mean worst! We already had big surprises!
Prepare yourself and don’t hyperventilate when you see the prices. If you already have one (or two) of these, please share with us your opinion.
(Disclaimed- this is not an ad, sponsored and does not contain any affiliate links. all products were chosen by us and we didn’t try them, so we can’t give our opinion on the efficiency. These are products that we want to try).
