An Exciting Christmas Affair

The Sassy Advent Calendar


I don’t know about you but when I was a little girl, I was completely consumed by the desire to have the perfect advent calendar. It was usually full of chocolates and featured a Wintery scene. I’m still as obsessed. So I’m creating my own Advent Calendar – online!

From 1st December, I’ll be unveiling a treat each day on Instagram during the countdown to Christmas. In addition, there’s a new ‘Advent Calendar’ channel coming to the blog (see here) so you can see in detail which brands I’m coveting this Christmas and why. There will be 24 brands in total starting 1st Dec for the countdown. There will be some discount codes and competitions too so keep your eyes peeled for some good deals! Don’t forget to tag your friends and leave your comments for those “nudge nudge, hint hint” gifting ideas. I hope you love reading as much as I enjoy creating!


It’s not unusual to spend ages drooling over the most ornate calendars – from beauty to food to hand made treats. These days nearly all brands and retailers have them but only a few are stand out.

This year, Estée Lauder launches its first ever Christmas Advent Calendar. Containing 24 of Estée Lauder’s best selling products across Skincare, Makeup and Fragrance (including 4 full size products) this is the perfect gift for that beauty junkie this Christmas. It’s £205 and well worth the investment.

If you’re more in to jewellery, then the Johnny Loves Rosie Advent Calendar (below) may be more up your street. It’s now half price too, (£27.50)! The intention is to enjoy a beautiful new piece of jewellery each day and build up your own keepsake collection to treasure forever. And trust me, if you’ve ever had anything from Johnny Loves Rosie, you’ll want to.

For those of you after something a little more quirky, try the Oh K 12 day beauty calendar below, (£15). Brimming with goodies like mini nail files, lip balms and more, it’s a calendar that’ll surprise you everyday.

Really excited to share with you all which bits I’m completely obsessing over this December! Xx
