I was working from the office in the morning and although I was ultra-productive, I felt like I wasn’t checking things off my to-do list fast enough. When I was done with one thing, two others were added to the list. A never-ending dance of one step forward, two steps back.
I love my kid, but man do I hate it when she’s ill! Not that she’s annoying (ok so maybe a little) or anything, but I get this huge feeling of frustration. When I am ill, I know exactly what to do. But when Baby Girl is ill, I don’t know what the hell I’m supposed to do!
I don’t know when I started to think I was Superwoman. But what the hell, what is one more thing on my to-do list, right? Except that it’s getting longer and longer and days are getting shorter and shorter. There are still 24 hours in a day, right?
My Emma & Chloé jewelry box has finally finally arrived! Is anyone here also subscribed to it? Tell me – do you also get disappointed that the box gets delivered so late in the month?? It’s perhaps a logistics issue, but how come some beauty boxes, like Birchbox, get delivered in the beginning of the month?!
Hello! It’s that time of the month again. Here’s what the Birchbox France looks like this month. 5 items in all, 1 item for 1 purpose (face, make-up, body, hair, and accessory). I will only comment the products I actually used.
It’s amazing how you can pass by the same monument almost every single day and not realize what it really is.
Monument aux Morts. Located in the city center of Metz, France – not too far from the Porte Serpenoise. A monument to represent the war of 1914-1918. You see a woman, perhaps a wife, a widow, or a mother, holding a dead naked soldier in her arms. We don’t know if he was a French or a German soldier. All we know is that he gave his life for the war.
After receiving a bangle (click here for the post) and a ring (click here for the post), it was time to receive earrings. For the month of October, Emma et Chloé partnered up with Les Tatillonnes to give us the earrings Cosmos. Originally valued at 72 Euros, these are sold at only 25 Euros (delivery fees not included) with the box.
Another month, another Prescription Lab box. Unlike last month’s box, I was a little disappointed this time around. Click here for the post. Was it because there was no jewelry included? Maybe. Was it because they added a dietary supplement instead of a beauty product? I think so. But I’ve spoken to quite a few number of friends who has told me that it’s a great products …. so we’ll see!
Hey guys! I received this month’s Birchbox about a week ago and well … In all honesty, it’s difficult to fully appreciate this month’s box especially after the awesomeness of last month’s. Click here for the post.
When Baby Girl was born, the Husband and I decided to move to France. The obvious reasons were first financially, of course. Why else do so many Filipinos move to other countries, right?! Second, I’m half-French and so is Baby Girl. I wanted her to grow up and know the French culture first-hand. Kinda like I did many years ago. As far as I can remember, my childhood years in France were some of the best years of my life. But that might also be because my mom wasn’t sick yet. My dad used to work a lot, so it was just me and her. I’ll always be thankful for those years because that’s how I like to remember my mom.
