Next to that is a tube of Amande Delicious Hands hand cream from my L’Occitane calendar

At the top is a heart shape cookie cutter from the Sanctuary calendar

Advent Calendars – Day 19

First I have to say Happy Birthday to D, hope you enjoy your day sweetheart xx

day-19

On the left is D’s lindor of the day and today is another red one

Next to that is a tube of Percy & Reed’s Perfectly Perfecting Wonder Balm from my M&S calendar. It sounds interesting 🙂

In the middle today is a bottle of Green lemon & orange blossom body wash from my Sanctuary calendar. This is one of my favourite products of theirs so it’s a nice one to have today.

To the right of that is a tube of dry skin hand cream from my L’Occitane calendar, this one is really rich and works wonders on my dry hands so it’s really great to have a nice handbag sized tube.

Finally, on the right is a set of stickers for planners and journals from my Mrs Brimbles calendar. As I’m planning on keeping a planner/journal type thing next year, I guess these are really going to come in handy and those donut stickers look really fun anyway 😀

Advent Calendars – Day 18

day-18

On the left is a bottle of Jasmin & Bergamote shower gel from my L’Occitane calendar and it smells really nice 🙂

Next to that is an orange stick from the Sanctuary calendar

In the middle is a tube of Rituals, The Ritual of Sakura, magic touch body cream from my M&S calendar and this smells amazingly good!

To the right of that is D’s lindor of the day, today he has a coconut one 🙂

Finally, on the right is a rubber (eraser) lollypop from my Mrs Brimbles calendar. I really love this one as I used to collect novelty rubbers when I was a kid, I remember my favourite one being this gold shiny rock which smelt really strongly of pineapples 🙂

Advent Calendars – Day 17

day-17

On the left is a bottle of Amande shower oil from my L’Occitane calendar. I’ve been curious about this product since I first heard about it so I was really pleased to find a sample of it to try, now I have to hope it doesn’t leave an oil slick in the bottom of the shower that becomes dangerous :-S

Next to that is D’s lindor of the day which today is the hazelnut one again

In the middle is an elephant shaped magnetic bookmark ballpen from my Mrs Brimbles calendar. I love magnetic bookmarks, with how clumsy I am I find them amazing for when I drop my books as normal bookmarks can fly out of where they are and I lose my place. With magnetic ones they grip the page I’m on and I’ve never had one fall out yet no matter how many times I drop them!

To the right of that is a tube of REN evercalm global protection day cream from my M&S calendar. It sounds interesting but there is no obvious mention of SPF so that’s something I’ll need to research on this one.

Finally on the right is a tube of Radiance exfoliator from my Sanctuary calendar, it smells lovely 🙂

Advent Calendars – Day 16

day-16

Underneath everything at the top is a useful wash mitt from my Sanctuary calendar today

On the left is D’s lindor of the day and he got a Strawberry & cream one today

Next to that is a tube of Philip Kingsley Elasticizer from my M&S calendar. I had a tube of this from last years calendar, it smells lovely and makes my hair feel good so that’s another winner 🙂

Next to that is a bottle of Cherry Blossom shimmering lotion from my L’Occitane calendar, and it really does shimmer, there seems to be some really fine glitter in it so it’s perfect for this time of year! I also love this scent, I even think I might prefer it to verbena which has always been my favourite, I guess getting this calendar and forcing myself to try their other varieties has been really good for me!

Finally on the right we have some paperclips from my Mrs Brimbles calendar, being half heart shapes, very useful and potentially a lot of fun too and in a lovely little bag which will get used for something else too 🙂

Advent Calendars – Day 15

day-15

First up on the left we have my favourite shower gel, Verbena from L’Occitane. It smells so fresh it’s just the best to help me wake up in the morning!

Next to that we have a bottle of cleansing burst body wash from my Sanctuary calendar

Top right is another red lindor for D from his advent, he’s hoping for a hazelnut one again soon he says!

Below that is a Rosie for Autograph lip glossy in super model smile. It’s a gorgeous colour inside that fabulous copper outer and doesn’t feel heavy nor greasy on which is great for me.

Finally, bottom left is a green ‘Lucky color’ highlighter from my Mrs Brimbles calendar, here’s hoping that it brings me some luck if I use it on some postcard comps 😉

Advent Calendars – Day 14

day-14

On the left is another super cute pack of sticky notes from my Mrs Brimbles calendar. I’m so pleased to keep getting these as I firmly believe that you can never have enough of them. The motto on today’s pack is very appropriate for the season as well, it says “Peace be with you”

Next to that is a bottle of Nuxe Huile Prodigieuse which came from my M&S calendar. I’ve not tried this but have heard good things about it and with it being such a good size I’m sure I will get to give it a good trial and see how it works for me!

Today, as you can see, is another red lindor day for D

Top right is a bar of amande delicious soap from my L’Occitane calendar. It really does live up to it’s name as it smells good enough to eat through the packaging so another thing to look forward to trying out from this calendar 🙂

Finally from the Sanctuary calendar I received some toe separators.
