I know I am, but I really really really really want it

Would it make any difference if I told you I was 46 and have never had an advent calender?

I love the way it says "It's at the top of every woman's wish list this Christmas"

Errrr no it's not grin

Well that only works out at £1.73 a year! YANBU.

But YABVVU to share the link on here because now I want one too.

GeeinItLaldy Sat 01-Oct-11 13:14:28

OMG! I want. I want. I want.

YADDDDNBU!

The same one was £70 last year and £50 the year before which is why i've always baulked at paying that much money. - In any case, they sell out really really quickly.

I want it so badly sad

squeakytoy Sat 01-Oct-11 13:16:34

I want!!!

And each item works out at £3.33 too, so its a bargain when you look at it that way!

YANBU to spend your money on whatever your little heart desires

YABU to post about advent calendars in EARLY OCTOBER grin

Lancome stuff is brilliant.

Thanks for the link <gets out debit card>

nickschick Sat 01-Oct-11 13:23:32

allhailtheaubergine Sat 01-Oct-11 13:48:54

Oh I SO want to be snotty and sneer about this... but ... <whispers> I need it too.

aldiwhore Sat 01-Oct-11 13:50:46

Get it. Notmy cup of tea, but get it. x

Lancome is my single biggest ethical dilema as it's owned by nestle and I'm a nestle boycotter. Which is actually very easy apart from lancome stuff which is the only stuff that suits my skin.

That advent calender is waaaaaay too tempting!

trixymalixy Sat 01-Oct-11 13:55:16

Oh my! I neeeeeeed!!

nbee84 Sat 01-Oct-11 13:56:58

I need one too!

LyingWitchInTheWardrobe Sat 01-Oct-11 13:57:11

Great... thanks, OP. I want it too. angry

<<< off to check pennies...

TidyDancer Sat 01-Oct-11 13:57:14

Ooh that's the best advent calendar ever! I think I might leave the page open so DP can just 'accidentally' see it!

sunnydelight Sat 01-Oct-11 13:58:17

That looks fab - I wonder if they deliver to Oz?!

YADDDNBU. And if anyone says you are, then I am also going to BU as will be treating myself to one too.

purplepidjinawoollytangle Sat 01-Oct-11 13:59:37

How ridiculously sexist - every woman wants make up and perfume? WTAF??

From a practical point of view, if you would normally buy those products at a much higher price then look upon it as saving money. If it's full of crap you'll never use, spend a fiver on a nice Fairtrade chocolate one grin

LadyBeagleEyes Sat 01-Oct-11 13:59:59

Oh YANBU at all. I want it too. It's a bargain really.
Just imagine opening your advent calendar every day...
I love it.

LeBOF Sat 01-Oct-11 14:00:22

Yes, because the baybee Jesus really wanted us to look and smell divine for His arrival, didn't He? grin

Thumbwitch Sat 01-Oct-11 14:00:38

YABU IMO - because you might not like half the products wink.

Get one from Hotel Chocolat instead (if they even do them) - that would be more my style! grin

SnapesOnAPlane Sat 01-Oct-11 14:01:21

I've just ordered mine, I'm so excited grin I don't think I'll be able to wait for the actual days to open it.

Of course you should get it and hurry before it sells out.
