HOLIDAY | The Body Shop's 24 Days of Beauty Advent Calendar + GIVEAWAY!

This post is a collaboration with The Body Shop.

Oh God, oh God, it's my first holiday post of the year and I don't know how many of you are like me where you have an incredible love/hate relationship with Christmas. I LOVED it as a kid and though I never grew up with Santa (my parents were very pragmatic and told my sister and I right away who was doing the gift-giving!) my sister and I would sleep in front of the tree in sleeping bags and wake up at the crack of dawn to open gifts with our parents.

One thing that I always loved growing up were the chocolate advent calendars. I could never wait to eat just one chocolate each day and often reached Dec. 25th by Dec.10th, but honestly telling a kid to eat just one tiny piece of chocolate a day is ludicrous! The same rules apply when telling grown women to wait to open each day of the now popular beauty-themed advent calendars! This year The Body Shop is all about games so many of their holiday gift sets have little daily challenges in addition to the products themselves. The real bonus is that every gift set purchased goes towards helping the charity International Alert, which helps create a safe place for refugee children to play with the Peace Play Project.

Now, I find the season all a bit stressful mainly because there is so much energy and focus on this time of year when it comes to socializing (I am a true introvert that needs to recharge) and of course I work in world where Q3 is EVERYTHING. I feel like my brain is buzzing non-stop from here and out and so this year I have made a point of making sure that I pamper myself weekly whether it'd be with a chocolate treat or a spa night in with my Body Shop friends. I also have been making sure that I balance out the decadence of the season with fruit and veggies because I remember feeling kind of ill almost all the time from over-eating.

Without spoiling the surprise too much, the 24 Days of Beauty Advent Calendar* ($69.00 CDN with $154 worth of goodies!) is filled with all of the classic Body Shop bath and body products in both full and deluxe travel sizes. I may have cheated and opened a few doors JUST for blog purposes and already I can tell that this is a fantastic gift for anyone!

This advent calendar is currently sold out online, BUT lucky for one of you, one lucky Cosmetic Proof winner will be receiving a calendar of their own! It'll be a few days into December, but then you can have the satisfaction of just tearing into multiple days!
