Beauty advent calendars

Warning, this post contains spoilers!

Christmas is two months away, and maybe it’s a little early to start thinking about it already. But if you want to have an advent calendar this Christmas you’ll have to get one soon before they’re all gone.

Today I’m showing you some beauty calendars that I’m interested in, because who says advent calendars are just for kids?

Rituals – The Ritual of Advent contains mini sizes of their most popular products. Rituals is one of my favorite body care brands, so I really want to get this one!

Kicks – Christmas calendar is filled with products mostly from their own brand, but it also contains products from a few other popular brands.

Last year I had two advent calendars, one from Kicks and one from Skincity and I was very happy with both of them. The year before that my boyfriend had made me an advent calendar himself, and it contained nail polish! Isn’t he just the best!? 💕
I have also had the advent calendar from Ciaté. I got it during the Christmas sale two years ago, so that was a bargain.

Are you getting an advent calendar this Christmas?

London shopping part 2

This weekend I was in London (again) with my boyfriend. It’s like the third time in six months… oops. We went to see The Last Shadow Puppets, but of course we had time for some shopping too. I actually found a lot of things (mostly polish), much more than I was planning on. I’m guessing you want to see what I bought!?

Of course we went to Lush to buy some more bath bombs and bubble bars! I love taking baths, so they will be used up pretty quick I think. I even got my boyfriend to pick out some stuff! The hotel room smelled like a mini Lush after our shopping there.

I found some really cheap China Glaze polishes, six full size bottles for £15 and six minis bottles for £5.

I think I went in to every Boots we passed to look for Starry starry night from Essie, but it was sold out everywhere. So when I found a mini pack with four of the polishes from the Retro revival collection (including Starry starry night) I knew I had to have it! I also found a mini pack with four of the Virgin snow winter collection polishes that I bought. They were both £10 each. I bought a duo pack with Bikini so teeny and the Gel setter top coat for £10 too. I have been wanting to try this top coat for a while, so I thought I’d give it a try now when I found it at such a good price. At the airport, right before we were going to our gate we walked by a Boots, so I went in one last time too look for Starry starry night. And I found it! Just this one bottle! They had ‘buy one, get one half price’ so I bought Haute tub from the winter collection as well. Total for these two polishes were £12, pretty ok.

I bought five OPI polishes for my mom. Polka.com, Baroque… but still shopping!, OPI with a nice Finn-ish, Primarily yellow  and Glitter off base coat. They were all £3 each.

I found most of the polishes at TK Maxx (OPI, China Glaze and Essie) and a few at Boots (Essie).

I almost forgot, but I went to Kiko where bought three polishes. 533, 261 and 271. And they were only £2,5 each.

I did not just buy polish, I found a Ciaté x Olivia Palermo Smoked out eyeliner for only £5. And I bought 2XU compression tights at Runners need. They were expensive though, but still cheaper than if I would have bought them in Sweden.

Then I got something for a friend, but she hasn’t got it yet. And I think she reads my blog so I’m not going to tell you what it is to ruin the surprise!

Ps. I also bought something that I’m planning on doing a giveaway with! I’m not gonna tell you what it is yet, but keep your eyes open on my Instagram page for a chance to win this amazing giveaway!
