The countdown to Christmas has officially begun! My social media feeds have been littered this week with snaps of advent calendar treats, Christmas decorations and of course Christmas jumpers!

I kicked December off in true Xmas style yesterday… in one of my many Christmas jumpers 🙊 If there was such thing as a Christmas jumper hoarder, it would be me 🙈 #Addict

It seems like most retailers are getting behind the Advent Calendars these days, with some of my favourites being the M&S advent calendar which is packed full of £250 worth of beauty products and priced at £35, when you spend £35 or more with them on clothing, beauty or home. It’s sold out for this year, but it looks like they’re planning to do another one next year.  The Yankee calendar one is always a great present for any candle lovers; they have a few variations, with some still in stock on their website.  Even River Island have their own calendar this year so we’re really spoilt for choice amongst all of the beauty calendars which are available.

So, behind door No.2 of the #LFAdventCalendar today is….

 *drum roll*

You know the drill by now, if you’ve not opened yours yet, then stop scrolling.


Rituals Magic Touch Body Cream

I’ve never tried this product before, so I’m going to give it a whirl and i’ll keep you posted if it changes my life! It’s really reasonably priced at £6.00 for a 70ml tube.

Rumour has it that it also features in the M&S advent calendar this year, so it must be popular!

Usually I use Patisserie De Bain body lotion because it smells delish, like strawberries 🍓 goes on smooth & light and keeps my skin really hydrated all day, without leaving that sticky feeling like some body moisturisers can. It also RRPs at £4.99 for 200ml, so really reasonably priced.

Hope you’re all enjoying the countdown to Christmas!

I’ll be rocking’ a Christmas jumper every working day this month (it’s a bit on an ongoing challenge I have with my team 🙈)if you’re getting involved with all of the festivities, then drop me a tweet @KatieHorsefield

#PeaceOut fellow beauty pals 💋🦄
