Hey guys! I just love love love this month’s Beautiful Box. It’s the perfect Mother’s Day gift, which will be in a couple of weeks. I love everything part of this month, with no exception. It’s super pretty, it’s pink / rose gold themed, the products are really nice, and I love flamingos! What a relief from last month’s disaster (click here for the link).
La Folie Douce aka Love Crazy – what is it exactly?? It’s so difficult to explain in words!
It’s hard to describe what it is, but the way I see it, it’s like the way I fell in love with my husband. Falling in love – some fall quick and hard, others get struck. The Hubby got struck and according to him, he knew he wanted me to be the mother of his future children. I took my time. I went along the crazy adventure, enjoyed every moment, and found a love I didn’t even think I deserved. When I saw the « Folie Douce » phrase on the shirt, I couldn’t help but think about that.
A friend recently asked me about the beauty boxes I receive monthly – Birchbox, Prescription Lab, and Beautiful Box – and which one I preferred. I tried to find the right words, but honestly it’s hard to choose one. It depends I guess. I’m usually pretty happy with the products I receive. The only times I am disappointed are when I get stuff that are really badly-rated on Yuka (click here on the post). That and when I receive things that don’t correspond to my profile. For example, I have really thick hair, so a volumizing hair product is really really not my cup of tea!
On March 19, we had the pleasure of having our first book club get-together in Metz. As I’ve mentioned in earlier posts (click here, here, and here), I am seriously into organizing English social events in Metz. It’s a great way to meet people, especially foreigners like us!
For the month of March, Emma & Chloé partnered with Audrey Langlois to come up with the Jonc Salomé. I looked online and found out that Audrey Langlois is in fact a jewelry designer based in Paris. Her designs are inspired by her travelling experiences. I checked out her website and there are many beautiful pieces (click here for the site).
What I love best about this bracelet is the fact that it’s so discrete, almost fragile and vulnerable. A nice thin touch of gold on my wrist.
Emma & Chloé x Audrey Langlois – March 2019 Jonc Salomé – worth: 39 Euros Matiere: laiton doré à l’or 750/1000ème Designé en France Price: 28.90 Euros (delivery fees included)

When I opened this month’s Prescription Lab box, I couldn’t help but think of Spring, which is a good sign since this was sort of their theme for this month. Objectif: Eclat, Gommage, et Hydratation après l’hiver (glow, scrub, and hydration after winter). This was huge step up from last month’s box (click here for the post).
Hey guys! Tell me – what do you think of Amazon Prime Video?
I was recently talking to some of my engineering trainees about series and a couple of them expressed how much they loved Netflix. Surprisingly, when I mentioned Prime Video a lot of them weren’t as enthused anymore. Then I suddenly remembered that in fact, I don’t even watch that many movies or series on Prime Video either. I paid the 49 Euros subscription fee to have the 1-day delivery advantage, but truthfully I didn’t even bother to check out the other advantages. Did you know there is also unlimited music and books? Yeah, apparently. 😯
For the month of March, Birchbox partnered with Comptoir des Cotonniers to give us this month’s « beauty box ». I use quotes because in fact, I was pleasantly surprised to find my beauty products in not one, but two beauty pouches!
