An Alternative To The Beauty Advent Calender & Giveaway

Beauty advent calenders a rife this year, but not everyone is a fan of them. Whilst they are a great idea for discovering new products, you do get left with your stash being cluttered up with a tonne of samples, some of which you may never end up using. I was having a little wander around my local New Look store recently. when I came across an ideal solution for those of you who are not fans of lots of mini beauty products, but want something a little more than just a tiny piece of chocolate in your advent calenders this year.

Inside the calender is a gold charm bracelet, which you take out on day 1, and 24 little windows, each with a different cute & festive charm behind for you to add onto the bracelet as the big day approaches, and for you to mix and match as you wish. I think this is a great idea as, not only do you get a little bit of excitement with each day of December, but you've also got something you can keep and wear for many festive seasons to come. New Look also do a necklace version of this calender, with different pendants behind each door, but I personally think the bracelet idea is much better, as you could wear more charms at one time. If you fancied picking one up for yourself, they retail at £19.99 each.

As a pre-Christmas treat for my followers, I will be giving away one of these advent calenders to one lucky winner. All you need to do is fill in the Rafflecopter widget below for a chance to win. Here are the T's & C's:
