    I can’t wait! I’m still using products from my 2017 calendar. They’re such a great way to discover the brands .
    Will you be making a YouTube video this year to show us what’s inside?

        Thanks for updating Paula! So many good ones! I think I’m particularly excited for the new ones like Debenhams, Space NK and La Mer (this one is super expensive for 12 days, but a good way to try their products). Also Fenwick and John Lewis look great, I got them last year and really enjoyed them! And M&S, No 7 and Look Fantastic seem the best value for money. What about you?

    Hi Paula.

    I love watching your Beauty Advent Calendar unboxing. I’m a little, well a lot if brutally honest 🙂 obsessed with these Advent Calendar haha. I like buying several as I can never just pick one. The samples last all year so it’s money well spent in my eyes.

    Do you know if QVC & Amazon are bring out a Beauty Advent Calendar out this year?

    Will you by any chance be unboxing the Harrods Calendar?

    Keep up the great work 🙂

      Hi Annette! So glad to hear you enjoy them, I love doing them! The calendars are so fun though, so why not!? hehe

      Amazon are doing one, just don’t have the details yet and QVC have told me they aren’t (probably after last years fiasco lol!)

      I would LOVE to unbox the Harrods calendar, let’s see if I can get my hands on it!

    Hi Paula!

    The Feel Unique calendar is available now, they decided to release it very early for some reason. Just FYI. LOVE your calendar guide by the way, keep up the good work. I’m a advent calendar junkie and could never find all these calendars by myself. Some of them don’t ship to Sweden but that’s probably just as well 🙂

        Hi Paula!

        Yes it’s strange, what if some people miss the early release and the calendar sells out before the release date that they have communicated ? Well hope they have enough of them. Either way it looks like it might be worth buying 🙂

    Very interesting, thanks! I really like John Lewis, Look Fantastic and Next- there’s a surprise! They did have one last year, it was about £25 and had all their own fragrances, lip balms etc in it. This year though, they’ve really turned up! I’m not sure about M and S, their summer beauty box was a bit of a disappointment to me. It was quite good, just a bit meh for them. Cohorted told their subscribers they’re releasing one this year. On not seeing it here, or with other info that’s been released I asked them again and they confirmed that they are! All I know is that you don’t need to be a subscriber, so it’s intriguing! Will be looking out for any unboxings you do Paula, always very good.

    Cant wait to see what design M&S have this time and hopefully Tili’s comments the other day mean they are going to do one again. There’s still so many I can think of that haven’t announced yet so I’m going to wait a bit to decide just in case there’s something amazing coming!

    I think Til at QVC are doing one in the US- I saw a 2019 vlog about it on YouTube. Don’t know if they are doing one here.That was the Advent calendar flop of 2017- not that I had one, just heard about it- unusual for Tili. They would really want to get it right if they release it again here, so I reckon if they do it, it will be great.

    John Lewis one is supposed to be out today- 9th Sept. It’s 11am and where is it? This is one I’m really interested in, or I wouldn’t be so hyper. I went to pre-order Look Fantastic, just after midnight on 5th Sept (their release date) and it was already on there, think it had been there on the 4th. Not 100% sure I’m getting John Lewis, as this can get pricey, but it’s really on my radar, where is it??!!! Not expecting you to answer that Paula.Someone at John Lewis is probably running round like a headless chicken, in a flap cos they haven’t released it yetis
