BUILDING MY OWN BEAUTY ADVENT CALENDAR: WHAT'S INSIDE (2019)


Another year, Another Calendar... 

Those of you who have followed me for a while will know my confusion, indecisiveness and hatred of the beauty advent calendars. Part of me loves them, I want them all. But a much bigger part of me cannot bear to part with £100-£300 on items I wouldn't necessarily buy myself. My usual argument is that I would rather spend £200 on things I actually want. 

My Top 5: Body Moisturisers

It's just SO pretty...

Every year I am sucked in by the Hourglass Limited Edition Palette. Every year I want it, and some of the time I end up making the splurge... but this year, I thought I was free from the lust of it all. This year was a copy from last year, with different packaging. HURRAH. I didn't need or want it. Then BAM, turns out they had launched a quad, a blush quad, a blush quad of dreams that I definitely did not need, but I definitely did want.

It's My BIRTHDAY (Yesterday). 

It was my birthday yesterday, and I've never felt so "MEH" about one before. The count down to the big THREE ZERO has begun. Ick. and I am not looking forward to it. My birthday was uneventful as always, but I did drink wine and eat a shed load of Indian food. It was definitely the highlight - that and cards from friends and loved ones.

The Anti Haul... 

It's been known for a long time I am not the biggest fan of the Beauty Advent Calendars... I did an anti-haul two years ago, and figured I would do a redo... to see if opinions have changed...

Another month over, and it's almost my birthday... 

The end of another month. Hopefully, November won't fly by as quick as October, but I doubt it. This month seems to have just gone in a flash!..
