Fashioneyesta’s Glam Advent Calendar 2014 Top Picks: The Countdown Begins!

Greetings Readers!
Welcome back to and thank you all for joining me today.

Well its November and now all of a sudden supermarkets and stores are stocking decorations, garlands, selection boxes of treats and luxury gift ideas. Our adverts our flooded with adverts full of Winter scenery, bright colours and idyllic music. It can only mean one thing, the countdown to Christmas has begun!

Now I’m not usually one to ride the coattails of a trending topic, however Christmas is a time that I can and will make an acceptation to this rule.

From childhood I have always loved Christmas and everything it brings, from the delicious baking to adorning the tree with lights and beautiful decorations that I have collected over the years. But, one thing I do love is Advent Calendars!

For over a century now Advent Calendars have played a dominant role in christmas festivities and some of the earliest ones that were made in Germany during the 19th Century included chocolates. Whilst others just have pictures in them, but day I am going to be showcasing some of the most luxurious advent careeners on the market.

Forget supermarket echolocate ones and think pure indulgence as we look at one of the newest crazes!

One of the latest and rapidly growing trends for Christmas is cosmetics and high end brand producing advent careeners for their customers. And today i am going to be showing you a few of my top picks here on the blog. So, if your tired of that advent calendar rut and want to start the indulgence for yourself a bit earlier than christmas day read on and prepare to be dazzled.

Please Note: All the calendars are at different price points to ensure that there is something to fit everyones budget this year.
