Seeing as though I enjoyed writing up this post so much last year, I had to come back with a 2017 edition of my picks of the Beauty Advent Calendars on offer this Christmas. When I say Christmas and I’m typing this in November, it may seem a little bit premature. But shockingly, the majority of the best calendars out there are already sold out. So I’m making sure this post isn’t a waste of a read by including the ones that you can still get your hands on.

I stumbled upon That Grace Girl a few months ago after browsing the #bbloggers feed on Twitter, and found myself still perusing her posts an hour later. After that, I was hooked on a daily basis. Not only do I enjoy her beauty reviews and fashion updates, I particularly love reading her lifestyle posts. Finding out what she’s getting up to (er, stalker alert!) is one of my guilty obsessions (along with most bloggers that I follow), and Grace, 21, has a familiar life to mine. In her final year at university, she blogs alongside her degree.

“Hello October started out as a productive outlet for the copious amounts of shopping I got involved in after getting my first full time job. I’m happy to say that after almost three years, although the jobs have changed, not much else has…”

I came across Suzie’s blog just over a year ago and she’s kept me reading ever since. I love her neutral makeup looks and her skin always looks perfect, so I pay good attention to what she likes to use. She has also been featured in a magazine I pick up every month; the ‘blogger’ influenced Company, which makes me like her just that little bit more.
