This year, I planned to do Blogmas! But, I ended up being away on the weekend and missing the 1st December, and then putting together two blog posts on the 2nd December. Does that count? It does, right? Ah I’m sure you can all let me off!
Anyway, today’s blog post on December 3rd is a perfect one for Blogmas, as I’m sharing with you my favourite advent calendar. And this year it’s totally different from my usual chocolate, beauty or gin type of advent calendar.
As you might have guessed from the photos and the blog title, my advent calendar is the Bloom Collection 25 Days of Christmas Candle Calendar, available at Superdrug. It’s perfect for me as I’m obsessed with candles, and plus it’s healthier than your gin, liqueur chocolate or just plain old Dairy Milk versions!
In a nutshell, this beautiful festive tree design calendar holds a glass tealight behind door 1, and a scented tealight behind each following door for 24 days, allowing your home to smell beautiful every day until Christmas.
Each door reveals one of 6 scented tealights to light up your home this Christmas, all in pretty pastel and Christmas-esque colours.
You get such a lovely collection of Christmas style scents, including Manadrin and Lime, Sugar and Spice, and Vanilla Chai. MMMMM delicious!
Each candle burns for approximately 5 hours, so they aren’t massively long lasting, but act perfectly to fill in that ‘candle of the day’ glow for the home.
Well done to Superdrug for homing some beautiful advent calender’s this year. You can check out their full range here. This one is truly my favourite up to now, and it’s actually a brilliant gift idea for Mum’s, sisters, best friends and colleagues!
The packaging of this Bloom calendar is also so so pretty, I’ve got it propped up nicely on my side table, where I light the candle each day in front of it in my living room.
What advent calendar are you opening this year?
