Beautiful Box au Feminin – Janvier 2019

 

Another month, another beauty box. I’m still as happy as ever to receive beauty boxes. However, I do have to find a way to filter, segregate, and give away the products I don’t use. There’s no point to accumulate so much if I’m not going to use them.

Surprisingly, at first glance one would think that the January box was the February one. It’s so pink! Hihihi ūüėł ūüėł

Que 2019 pétille de bonheur РJanvier 2019 РBeautiful Box by Au Feminin

  • Contour Yeux Eclat Lissant ¬ę¬†Musalight¬†¬Ľ by Kadalys
  • Fard √† Paupi√®res Liquide ¬ę¬†Scandalous Glitter Eyeshadow¬†¬Ľ by AWA Make Up
  • Poudre Visage Perl√©e ¬ę¬†Bubble Pearls¬†¬Ľ by Tabatha
  • Soin Capillaire Hydratant ¬ę¬†Tea Time¬†¬Ľ by Bubble Therapy
  • Crayon Jumbo √† L√®vres by ModelCo
  • Pink plastic pouch

Personally, I thought it was a very good product selection. I use the eye contour in my daily morning routine for my sensitive eye area. The Bubble Therapy hair care leaves my hair smooth. I use it right after I towel-dry my hair and before blow-drying. It doesn’t leave my hair greasy at all. I am also very satisfied with the lipstick. I love its color and its creamy texture.

If you’re interested in subscribing to this box, send me your first name, last name, and email address.

Emma & Chloé x M.A. Stone РJanvier 2019

 

Wow, wow, wow, wow, wow!!! I just LOVE the ring I just received with my Emma & Chlo√© jewelry box of January. I love all the jewelry pieces I’ve received so far, but this one specifically is a personal favorite. It’s the one I’m wearing on my middle finger, the other one is the ring I received last September (click here for the post), which I also like.

Prescription Lab Janvier 2019

 

Ughh! I’m afraid I might be coming down with something. Baby Girl was a bit ill these past few days and I’ve been taking care of her. Every time she’s ill, I silently pray that she gets better quickly and let me get ill instead. An exchange of hostage / prisoner of some sort. Problem is, it works each and every single time. So today, she’s running around and feeling fine and I’m starting to feel like crap.

Thankfully, one good thing did happen today. My Prescription Lab package arrived!

La Galette des Rois

 

If you think you can go on a diet right after the Christmas / New Year break, think again. The first weekend of the year celebrates Epiphany, which marks the day the 3 Kings – Gaspar, Melchior, and Balthasar – came to visit Baby Jesus and in France we eat the famous Galette des Rois or the French King’s Cake.¬†The Galette des Rois is traditionally made of flaky buttery puff pastry and filled with a Frangipane, a creamy almond mixture. Nowadays, you will notice that a lot of Boulangerie / Patisserie like to mix and match new flavors for their Galette des Rois. I like to stick strictly to tradition because I love frangipane!

La Winstub in Metz, France

Since Christmas, Baby Girl has been staying with my niece in the countryside. I can’t wait for her to come back this weekend, but I also enjoy this time where it’s just the Husband and I. Well, not really just us because there’s also work, but you know what I mean. I don’t have to worry about picking Baby Girl up from school, or prepare our meals at the proper time, and think of activities to occupy her. I might be criticized for saying this, but as much as I love my daughter, I do feel the need to take a break for myself and for my couple. I’m aware that I’m super lucky because my family is not too far away and they love having her with them and vice versa. When Baby Girl comes back home, I feel like I’ve been given a breath of fresh air and I feel ready to be a productive mother again.
