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. 

I enjoy looking at the value aspect of an advent calendar, I want to see a decent saving. But as I looked through them in this post, I realised sometimes the saving really isn't the best... 

So last year I made my own. You can view the contents here.  I really loved doing it, so I thought I would do it again this year.
