    This is a sort of following on from the christmas thread.

    I was reading how some of us will miss our chocolate advent calenders and Ill miss mine too, so I decided to start putting an advent box together. I have put in it so far, An intensive hair conditioner, face pack, nice bubble bath, dvds, cinemas vouchers, and some little messages of support and challenges like go for a swim, a long walk....

    Does anyone have any other ideas?

    Ooo what a fab idea, I'll definately be pinching it :p. How about some festive nail varnish etc to get ready for the big day, some daft christmas ear rings (tacky i know but they always make me smile), if you're married or with someone how about getting them to do you some vouchers for pampering or erm bedroom activities :p,

    My OH has gone shopping with my youngest and a big list of things to get, on it is treats for ME!!!! So they can go in the box and I dont think he will complain about the bedroom activity idea! ;)

    Lol it always feels odd when i get things for me, it's all usually for everyone else. Bet you'll be loving december now :).

    I usually get my advent calender from hotel chocolat and it's lovely but I'm happy to say hubby had some stuff from there yesterday and i wasn't even tempted, mind you it was only my first day so not sure how long that will last lol!

    Probably quite useful during this diet!

    Although, I am a REFORMED chocoholic. Before LL I couldn't go a day without at least a bar of chocolate. Now, don't even think about it unless I'm thinking about my poor missing advent calender.
