The Marks & Spencer Advent Calendar is one of the more underrated calendars in my opinion. I think a lot of us forget that they stock some gorgeous products, so their calendar is a great way to showcase this. Now a normal blogger would have written this post before December – I did film a video – but I’m not normal. The calendar has sold out online but you can still grab one inshore at Marks & Spencer.
The calendar is worth over £250 and costs £35.00 to buy after you’ve already spent £35.00, so in effect it’s £70.00 to buy, and it takes you all the way up to Christmas Day.

In general, this was a good calendar. I do wish that Marks & Spencer had varied the contents a little as there seems to be a few similar items. However, I do like the contents and there’s a few that I can’t wait to try.
You can still get the Marks & Spencer Advent Calendar in-store, but you need to be quick.
