The M&S Beauty Advent Calendar is back with a bang and this year I can truly say it's bigger and better than ever. It has some A M A Z I N G brands featured and to celebrate myself and some other lovely bloggers got to attend a fun evening at Biscuiteers in Notting Hill to decorate our very own gingerbread houses. 

*Major disclaimer - it was much much harder than it looked, so I don't think I'll be having a career change any time soon. The Biscuiteers team were so lovely and patient, thankfully my gingerbread house made it home in one piece! 

The time has finally arrived! When you spend £35 in Marks and Spencers you'll be able to purchase this year's fabulous beauty advent calendar for just £35 and it's available NOW (Hurry, they're sold out online so get yourself to a store). It includes 25 amazing products and will definitely be the best £35 you spend this Christmas, whether it's for yourself or as a gift if you're feeling generous.

 All of the products in the calendar are incredible with several that I have been dying to try from leading brands such as Emma Hardie, Ameliorate, Stila, Pixi and Alpha H -  which is going to go down so well with beauty lovers. I have a few favourites that I pictured below (as you can see I struggled to narrow them down): 
 Alpha H Liquid Gold has been on my wishlist for sometime and now I have the perfect opportunity to try it out. This 50ml bottle is so cute and will definitely last a good few weeks. Industry experts such as Ruth Crilly and my favourite, Caroline Hirons always rave about it.
 Being an avid fan of Beauty Director, Alessandra Steinherr, I've been wanting to try out the Ameliorate Transforming Body Lotion as she highly recommends it for dry, winter skin. Since body care is something I always neglect, I haven't invested in the full size but I can't wait to see if it lives up to my expectations.
 Two brands I've heard so many positive things about are Stila Cosmetics and Pixi by Petra. They're definitely two of my favourite products in the calendar. The formula for Stila Liquid Lipsticks is meant to be one of the best and the Pixi lip shade is so stunning and shimmery - it'll be perfect for the Christmas season.
 Without ruining the big surprise, number 25 has the cutest makeup bag to hold all of your favourite products inside. If you're thinking about heading to M&S this season, make sure you get there fast - these advent calendars won't be around much longer. 
A huge thank you to M&S for having me at the launch and being lucky enough to try the calendar out for myself.
