I will say that this is a really disappointing end to the advent calendar for me. It seems like it is just a regular tea strainer that they put a design on, which is beautiful, but lackluster to me.
In terms of the advent calendar, I think there were some great gifts, but overall it was disappointing. For the price, it was worth it, but does not hold up to other higher end advent calendars. I will not be investing in this in the future, but I think it was worth the experience to see what other options are available.
Woof! This one has a very strong maple smell! If you have been a fan for a while, you probably know that I am a candle junkie, so I am very excited for this one! Keep in mind that this is probably about 6 hours of burn time, but it seems very potent. I have yet to burn it, but keep in mind that burning it diffuses the smell, which means it might lose a lot of that punch during burning.
I have not read the book that this gift is based on, but this is a gorgeous mirror. There is a regular mirror and a magnifying mirror, and I love the design on it. I am personally so happy for this gift and will definitely be putting this in my purse for future use!
I am about to make a lot of people upset, but I have yet to read LOTR (I would like to redeem myself a little bit by saying that it is literally the next item on my TBR). That being said, this seems really nice quality though fragile. I have a friend who is OBSESSED with LOTR, so I will be giving it to him.
I don’t know why, but it feels like a lot of these types of boxes have lip balm for some reason. This one is apple spiced flavor, although I don’t remember anything apple in the Caraval series. I personally am always disappointed by a lip balm, but that is my person preference.
Okay, I love this. I read ACOTAR a few months ago, and I have become a Sarah J Maas fan. P.S. there are going to be posts for both Throne of Glass and ACOTAR in the upcoming year. Anyway, this is already on my keys, and I am so impressed with how pretty it is.
I actually really like this photo album. Unfortunately, I am Gen Z, so we don’t really use albums, that’s what Instagram is for. It does look like a really big album, but it does seem like it has a big gap in it, which I don’t know if that is a common photo album thing or if it is indicative of cheapness.
Hello friends! Sorry I am behind on posts! Today’s gift is a bag of tea. I’m not a huge tea person, but from what I can tell, it should taste like hazelnut, caramel, chocolate, and vanilla which sounds absolutely delicious. I will happily be donating this to a tea-loving friend!
Hey everyone and welcome to day 3! Today’s gift is a beautiful headband. I 100% will be wearing this in the future.
Side note: I have been kinda disappointed with the gifts so far. I liked the gloves, but it has felt like the gifts have felt cheap. Looking into it, this box is only $40 for 12 gifts, which is not a bad price at all, but it does mean that the gifts are probably going to be on the cheaper side. That does not mean that the gifts are bad, they just aren’t going to have as much “ooh”s and “ah”s. Keeping all of that in mind, the gifts are worthwhile for the price, but not what I was expecting to get.
