This is the first of what looks set to be a lot of Christmas content on That's Peachy this year. I don't know why, but I feel so much more excited and surprisingly prepared for it this year, much more so than usual, so I thought I'd embrace it and share my excitement with you all on here. 

One thing I love about the festive season and the lead up to the big day, is advent calendars, be it of the chocolate or beauty variety. Today I'm introducing you all to one of the latter, and one of the very best of it's kind that I have seen this year.
It seems like every year the selection of calendars available gets bigger and bigger, but I really do think that I have found the pick of the bunch with this one!
The Marks & Spencer beauty advent calendar is finally here, with 25 doors containing mini and full size beauty items including makeup, skincare, nail and hair products, to open every day throughout December.

Boxed in a Christmas themed house with individually decorated boxes for each day, the calendar will look beautiful as an extra decoration in the house. It's really strong and sturdy too, and could easily be reused next year to create your own advent.

I have got one to give away to one of you lucky lot, so if you don't mind a few spoilers about what's inside the calendar, and if you'd like to know how you can win one,  then read on...
I love how each box has a little Christmassy quote in the lid, all relevant to the product inside too... It's the little extra touches like this that really help it to stand out from the rest.

It's only just come into stores and is selling out quickly everywhere, so you have to be fast! Priced at £35 when you spend £35 or more on home or clothing, it's a real bargain.

The gifts in each box are really generous, and there's a great selection of products to suit everyone's personal tastes, skin type and colouring. 
The entire contents of the calendar are worth over £250 altogether, which is pretty impressive, especially as the calendar only costs £35 to buy. 

I've photographed some of my favourite items from the box below, but I have also kept some of the items a secret, as I don't want to spoil the surprises too much. If you do want to know what is inside every door, there are a few other reviews online which reveal all!
Products in the calendar come from M&S own brands such as Autograph and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley's range as well as well known and loved brands including Ren, Leighton Denny, Alpha H, Emma Hardie, Stila, Percy & Reed and Eyeko to name a few. A real mixture of luxury and high end brands and some true cult products that have been on my own wishlist for quite some time!

Advent calendars like this are the perfect way to discover new brands, new products and try new things which you otherwise wouldn't be able to.
I have one of these calendars to give away over on my Instagram account, so head on over if you'd like to have your very own to open throughout December! 
It's really easy to enter, and I will be picking the winner towards the end of this month so that it will arrive to you before the 1st.
Good Luck!
