Since I’m Jewish I always get major FOMO during the holiday season. When I tell people I love Christmas, they always get confused and say, “wait, but you don’t celebrate it…”. True, but that doesn’t mean I can’t love the music and the lights, and pretty much everything else about the holiday (don’t get me wrong, I love Hanukkah too, but since Christmas is so in your face everywhere you go, it’s kinda hard to ignore it).
Anyways, I’ve always gotten jealous that I never got one of those cute advent calendars that count down the days until Christmas with chocolate. Not sure what this has to do with the actual holiday itself, but it’s such a gimmicky thing that I would totally be down for. Well my friends, 2017 is my year.
The Body Shop was kind enough to send me their 24 Days of Beauty advent calendar (C$69, with a value of C$154) to help me prepare for all the holiday parties. There are a few different advent calendars that The Body Shop is offering up this year, but this one contains winter skincare, seasonal scents, makeup, and more.
Each day opens up to a different Body Shop mini product, whether that be one of their body butters, an eyeliner, a bar of soap, or a lip balm (plus other surprises!). Even better, each panel contains a challenge for the day, and the proceeds from each advent calendar goes towards International Alert, a London-based non-profit charity that focuses on peace-building activities.
Now I don’t want to completely show you what’s in the calendar, since one lucky reader will be winning one for themselves (don’t want to ruin the surprise!). To enter, you must be Canadian and over the age of majority in your province or territory. Contest closes on November 29, 2017! Enter via the Rafflecopter below. Good luck!
