Blogmas Day 1; Christmas Advent Calendar Reviews

Welcome to my first EVER blogmas with El Unico!! I am so excited to get involved with blogmas this year, it's going to be hard due to so many restrictions but I want to make this year an amazing Christmas and just celebrate and be as festive as I possibly can, so thought why not join me on my Christmas adventure this December? I absolutely love Christmas and as I've gotten older I haven't really had advent calendars however this year I thought after the stuff we have missed out on, especially this month, I am going all in and treating myself to more than one advent calendar. I have got four that I have bought and one that I made up myself. I begin by opening them today but I will update on my social media and on upcoming blogs. Here's to a blinking good blogmas!!

The first is a movie advent calendar that I have created myself. I have seen a few of these but there was a few films that I wanted to add or change so I decide to create my own. I will be posting this on my socials aswell as the film a day. Please follow my socials and tag me in your advent calendar posts!

So here it is, this is my Christmas movie advent calendar, 24 days of full on Christmas classics and a few new ones that I discovered last year and absolutely love to watch. I'd love to know some of your favourite Christmas films. Mine are Home Alone and Scrooge.

This year I have bought myself a @PukkaTea calendar. I love tea so this is a perfect one for me. I now get to try 24 new teas everyday which is also great because then I know which ones I love to buy boxes of. I will be keeping you posted on my socials of what tea I have had and will be doing an update blog within the upcoming week. You can get this calendar from quite a few places such as Boots, Holland & Barrett, Lloyds Pharmacy and Amazon. I bought mine from Amazon. So in my day 1 I got the 'feel new tea' which is 'full of herbs to make you feel like new. The morning after the night before.' and this tea is seriously yummy!

The second calendar is one from @PopcornShed I wanted to do something different to chocolate so though why not popcorn. I had also seen a similar calendar being reviewed by youtuber @SaffronBarker last year and the popcorn flavours sounded amazing so I just needed to try. There are a few different Popcorn Shed calendars but you can get them from the original website, Amazon, John Lewis, Harvey Nichols, Not On The Highstreet, Prezzybox and Wowcher. I managed to get an awesome bargain from Wowcher for mine. In the calendar there are six gourmet flavours of popcorn to try which are salted caramel, say cheese, berry-licious, butterly nuts, pop 'n' choc and pecan pie. One word, YUM - In my day 1 I got the salted caramel flavoured popcorn and OMG it was so delicious. Now I'm just too tempted to open tomorrow's door aswell.

The third one I got is the pink gin calendar. This one is chocolate but you then receive a pink gin on the last day. There are a few different options such as vodka and baileys for these. I had seen these online everywhere but whilst on recent trip to B&M my mum and I noticed this one and it was only £4 so we got it as online they were a lot more expensive for the same one. Grabbing all the bargains this year I am! This calendar is a chocolate one with a mini bottle at the end so ofcourse my day 1 is chocolate. No suprise there haha.

The fourth is a bath bomb advent calendar by @BathtimeBoutique and I am so excited to see what bath bombs I have upcoming however this calendar is a 12 day one so I will have to wait before opening this one. So keep an eye out on m social media for the opening of this beauty but ifta you miss it don't worry I will also be keeping you updated throughout Blogmas wih El Unico.

Until Next Time You Filthy Animals! X
