Santas Coming! 8 of the Best Christmas Jumpers

I am normally anti anything Christmas before December, but the phrase ‘if you can’t beat em, join em’ comes to mind.  It’s just EVERYWHERE already.

So yes, rather than fight it, I will just join in with the holiday cheer, that little bit too early.

Christmas jumpers

Last year I decided I wanted a Christmas jumper a few days before Christmas day, when you couldn’t get one anywhere.  So this year I’ve been on the look out early to ensure I get my Christmas jumper!

I thought I would share my favourites with you below.  Please let me know if you find any other good ones!

My Ultimate Beauty Advent Calendar

I love the idea of the beauty advent calendars that I keep hearing about, like the Benefit, Selfridges and Boots ones.  They are quite pricey, but if you don’t like chocolate and fancy a treat, great!

I remember a friend telling me about her parents at Christmas.  Every year her father buys her mother a charm bracelet, and fills 24 boxes with charms for her to open every day. Wow! What a romantic guy!

If I could create the ultimate beauty advent calendar for you, with a treat for 24 days, here’s what would be hidden behind those doors:
