Look Fantastic Advent Calendar Days 1-5

Christmas tree, flamingo, beauty, feminine style design for advent calendar

Avoiding spoilers for beauty advent calendars is particularly tricky when you are so into watching Youtube videos and reading other people’s blogs but somehow I managed to avoid finding out the contents of anything in the box until it came to actually opening the first few days.
