  1. Amazon is worth including – a really good one from them, nice selection of decent brands for £50, still available at the time of writing.

    Looking forward to hearing about the Space NK advent calendar. They seem to have left the release of their Christmas range really late this year, and are keeping the details firmly under wraps.

  2. Hi, just wanted to let you know the Jo Malone Advent Calendar and their whole Christmas range is available now on their website! I’ve just purchased mine 🙂

  3. Hi! This is a great post, I love this time of year awaiting the advent calendar season. I have pre ordered the Elle calendar and couldn’t see this in the list. It’s available to buy from tomorrow. I hope this helps. X

  4. I just saw that NARS are doing one this year. It is available in the US for the moment, will launch in UK in November.

  5. I spoke to an assistant in the beauty department at a large branch of M&S at the weekend. Apparently the production run on their calendars was 690,000 this year. This was actually a reduction on the previous year as M&S want them to sell out quickly to increase their desirability and keep a degree of exclusivity. They were completely sold out nationally over a week ago.
