December is well underway and we are steadily marching towards Christmas. Advent calendars weren't part of my childhood which might explain my undying fascination with them. Imagine having a surprise to open up every single day for 24 days, culminating in the BIG DAY? Of course, brands have caught on that Advent calendars aren't just for children anymore and every year brings forth a slew of them ranging from the affordable to the money-no-object showstoppers. The packaging is usually uniformly so pretty it seems a shame to consign them to the recycling bin. So, I thought how fun it would be to have an Advent calendar that isn't disposable, becomes a family heirloom that gets brought out every year and which can be customized. Here is a wooden one from Target.
The first few days revealed a mulled wine infused macaron from Daniel et Daniel, a Smashbox lipstick and a L'Occitane shea butter lip balm.
I have been vlogging the Advent Calendar reveals over on Instagram so click the blue button on the right to see me in action! Follow me @lheurebleuewithchloe and say "Hi!"
