  1. These are amazing! I always buy myself an advent calendar alongside the kids but it’s just the usual chocolate type, makes me all nostalgic. My husband has never been bothered but I have should have known something was up when he said he’d ordered his own advent this year. It just arrived. It’s from Virgin Wines. It’s huge! And I’m very jealous! Feel I’ve been missing a trick all these years 😂

      My hubby will feel he’s missing out when I’m opening my beauty one every day in December. So no doubt he’ll probably have a beer one next year!
