It's Fun And Excitement With The Body Shop 24 Days Of The Enchanted Advent Calendar



This year the excitement of the holiday season kicks off with The Body Shop's 24 Days Of The Enchanted Advent Calendar, ($70 / $130 value).  Join myself and Olivia The Owl as we journey thru an enchanted winter forest and frolick with our friends who are hiding 24 precious treats from The Body Shop.  How pretty is this?!?!  I gasped when I opened the box because it's so darned cute!!!


Inside you'll find Olivia's friends beckoning you into explore one door each day.


See the friendly furry faces and 24 doors begging to be opened?



A beauty advent calendar such as this can make an excellent gift to someone special or be opened early and broken up into a number of smaller gifts.  There are two additional calendars to choose from on The Body Shop's website and any of these could easily be used for stocking stuffers or to outfit the whole office!!!  Are you ready to look inside?  I know I am!!


On the inside you'll find 24 compartments scattered about for you to discover.  One thing that I really like about this advent calendar is that each door has a tiny tab that you push in helping you to get the  perforated secret compartment open to reveal your treasure without risking breaking a nail.  I can really appreciate that attention to detail!

What do you think of this cool beauty calendar?  Could you see purchasing one for a gift, or perhaps for yourself?  Be sure to take a look at the other two calendars as well.  They're all really fun!!!
