Emma got this brooch with cute candy canes and a sparkly crystal bow. Yep, that's right this is no ordinary advent calendar. There are no pictures of drummer boys or sickly sweet Santa-shaped chocolates, just pretty jewellery. Oh how I wish I had an advent calendar like that ;)
This brooch is from ebuni.com (price £29.75)
*so it's not technically the first day of Advent, that was Sunday the 28th of November, but this is the first day you get to open your advent calendar ... but that's a little longer to say so let's just go with it okay?
