Online Only The Best of Advent Calendar ($75)


Petite Treats 12 Days of Tarte ($37)

I love Beauty Advent Calendar (see my calendar from last year) and here are the best ones I found for this year (my choices are all cruelty free in case you miss one famous one ;-)

The Body Shop calendar really intrigues me - $75 means basically $3 for each item in here.

I don´t know why the Tarte calendar only has 12 doors to open? Does anybody know?

Are you gonna get one this year?

Old Factory Candle Gift Set Review + Giveaway

Today I am reviewing candles from Old Factory- perfect for the holidays I chose the "Happy Holidays" theme for these 3 candles: one smells like Gingerbread, one smells like Candy Cane and one smells like Christmas tree.

Here are the claims:

These candle gift sets each contain 3 different scented candles. Each candle burns clean and even for 20 hours. Hand-poured in the USA with natural soy wax, self-trimming wicks, and premium fragrance oils. Each gift set is themed around a group of related fragrances. So everyone is sure to find something perfect for every occasion, every room in the house, and all the special someones in your life.

I must admit that I was a little surprised, how small these candles actually are! For some reason I expected them to be a bit bigger. I like how the label makes them look very "old fashioned".

The individual scents are super realistic and smell wonderful: the Gingerbread smells really like freshly baked Gingerbread cookies- I can smell Vanilla, Cinnamon and dough! The Candy Cane smells like fresh peppermint and I was really curious how "Christmas tree" smells: turns out it smells exactly like a pine tree ! ;-)

Now this really brings the right christmas spirit in to my home!

When burning the candles they give a nice- never overwhelming scent off. I really enjoy them and they do come in lot´s of different scents as well! To name only a few (with intriguing titles and scents imo):

Winter Wonderland
Hot Cocoa
Roasted Chestnut
First Snow

Coffee Shop
Coffee Bean
Chai Tea

50 Shades
Vanilla ***
Jasmine Bubbles

Get these candles on Amazon!
