You might be thinking that I'm completely nuts to already talk about Advent calendars when we've all only just accepted the fact that summer is over. But I'm not the only fanatic as my search results are showing me that some of you started having a look at my past beauty Advent calendar posts already. Also some of the best examples have already been released or will be available quite shorty and we all know that the most popular beauty Advent calendars are sold out in no time. My favourite this year has got to be the L'Occitane Advent calendar as it has been designed by the talented Kanako, illustrator at My Little Paris, and it's even one of the cheapest examples this year. So here I'm sharing all of the good beauty Advent calendars I'll be coming across during the next weeks which means that this post will regularly be updated with prices, release dates and availability, too!
