With December just three days away, the countdown to Christmas is about to begin. And even at the ripe-old age of twenty-five, I must admit there's nothing quite so satisfying as the daily opening of one's advent calender. However this year, having eaten my way through my body weight in chocolate, I'm on a pre-party season diet and the usual Cadbury's Calender will do nothing to help my chances of fitting into my planned work-do outfit. Not wanting to go without, I decided to look further afield, so imagine my delight when I came across the Selfridges' Beauty Advent Calender.
Following last year's success, Selfridges decided to follow suit this year with their exclusive Beauty Advent Calender - the perfect way to treat yourself to something extra special this season. The ultimate in the height of luxury, behind each window lies minature versions of the beauty industry's most coveted products.
From the seductive Diamonds Eau De Parfum by Emporio Armani to Yves Saint Laurent's Khol Pencil and Victor & Rolf's Flowerbomb, with additional treats from Shu Uemura, Lancome and Kiehls, it really is the perfect treat for any beauty fanatic this Christmas.
