Firstly, let's just address how scarily fast this year has gone. It feels like mere weeks ago I was flinging the covers back on December 1st in 2015 and racing to open my advent calendar. It's like Groundhog Day – the film I mean, where the same days happen over and over again. My seemingly rapid ageing aside – it's THE FIRST OF DECEMBER! Woo hoo! Advent time. I couldn't be more excited this year as not only did I get one of the best beauty calendars known to man, I won it. You know those Twitter giveaways that thousands of people enter, and you enter never expecting it to be you? Well, turns out it could be you, though on this occasion it was me (sorry). The lovely folks at Get The Gloss gifted me this stunning Decleor beauty calendar that had sold out really quickly. I'm excited on so many levels – Christmas level, actually winning something level, and also the chance to try more of Decleor, and really get to know the brand with twenty-five mini and deluxe sample items. Day 1 is their Aroma Cleanse, it smells so good. Side note: it's really hard to resist opening all the doors and having a big Decleor party, but I will be strong. Thanks so much to Get The Gloss and Decleor, winning this has been a Christmas miracle.
