Every year Alex and I toy around with the idea of getting an advent calendar for Fat Cat… Look, we don’t have children, so someone’s got to get the gifts to compensate! We’ve actually never gone as far as purchasing one, but it’s the thought that counts and Fat Cat loves us for that alone I’m sure!
Over the years, calendars seem to have become more and more extravagant, with people spending as much on the calendar itself as I would usually budget for a family Christmas gift. It’s all gone a bit mad! I can often see what all the fuss is about, when it comes to some of the tempting calendars that are around, but with so many to choose from how do you pick just one, and should we actually stray from the traditional and splurge when money is so tight?! Tempting. Very tempting.
Just take a look at my advent calendar lusts …
As with all beauty must haves, these calendars are pretty hard to find and a lot have now sold out. If you are in total lust then I wish you luck on your purchasing mission!
