After years and years of being an anti-television-in-the-bedroom person, I finally gave in. The Hubby convinced me to move the television and although I was a little iffy about it at first — now … I love it! I’ve been a big fan of Netflix ever since it first arrived in France, but now I gotta be more careful. If not, I could just spend all day watching series and movies! I can’t wait for the time when it’s too cold to go outside and my lazy and cold self just wants me to stay lying down in bed with my comfortable pillows and warm covers. *insert joy and happiness*
After my previous post on Picard products (click here for the post), several people asked me how I use them. As much as I love cooking, sometimes I just don’t have the time to do so (especially after a long day of work). I could order take-out but that’s not so good for my monthly budget. I could also reheat store-bought ready-to-eat dishes, but that’s not my cup of tea. Again, question of budget and well, taste too.
Today, I’m going to share my secret / not-so-secret with you – PicardSurgeles. As much as I love shopping for fresh vegetables and fruits, I’ve also developed a fondness for frozen products particularly from Picard Surgeles and Thiriet. Since we moved to our new apartment, we’ve been going to Picard Surgeles because it’s more convenient location-wise. But there are products you can find in one and not in another, so I guess it would be ideal to go to both once a month.
Second Emma & Chloé box and I’m not disappointed. This time around, I received a beautiful ring. I was a little worried about receiving a ring because of several factors including the size of my finger. I don’t have small fingers – my wedding band is size 60 I believe 😅. Thankfully, it is an adjustable ring. It’s not the most comfortable kind, but it’s wearable. Second is the color of the stone – a pretty blue-green. It’s gorgeous, but well, doesn’t really go with every outfit in my wardrobe. Thankfully, as many know – when there’s a will, there’s a way.
I’ve been eyeing the Prescription Lab beauty box for a while now, but I never took the final step to ordering it. I saw it a lot of times on Instagram and I always told myself I would try it someday. I really like the fact that some of the products in the box were full size and really useful which are actually the reasons why I was disappointed and stopped my subscription with Glossy Box and My Little Box (click here, here, and here for the posts).
This month’s Birchbox is just crazy. For only 13 Euros, you receive a box with a Mac Cosmetics lipstick worth 19.50 Euros, a 15 Euros gift certificate, and +++. That’s a least 35 Euros. I don’t even know how much the box is worth exactly – all I know is that it is a very good deal!
Baby Girl has been back to school for 2 weeks now. This is the first time in a while where she isn’t the new girl anymore. Although she has never really showed us any signs of stress, I could tell that this year she was a little bit more relieved than in the past. She’s 10 years old and started CM2 (grade 5) this year. This also means this is her last first day in elementary school. Eeekk – where did time go??? 😱 I guess that’s how it feels like when you become a mom at a young age. I’m 32, so technically not-too-old (don’t you dare say anything about that. yes you!), but when I look at my ten-year old I kinda do feel old. Harhar.
Hey guys! I’ve been craving so many dishes lately (no I’m not pregnant! 🤣 🤣 ). I wanted pizza, so I went to Pizza Carissimi (click here for the post). I was craving Spaghetti with Mussels and well, I went to get the ingredients. This recipe is super easy to make and ridiculously delicious!
I finally did it!! After months and months of talking about this, I finally ordered my Emma & Chloé jewelry box. It’s been more than a year that I’ve subscribed to beauty products and I thought it was the time to try something new. Click here, here, here and here for some of the posts. The concept of the jewelry box, Emma et Chloé, is pretty simple. Each month discover and receive a jewelry designer masterpiece. The month of August featured a bangle – the Jonc Solly.
I’ve been craving a lot of things lately – Spaghetti with Mussels, Pizza, … Oh, come to think of it, I’ve been missing good Italian dishes I guess. Anyways, Baby Girl and I made plans of hanging out in the city center today. Getting my eyebrows done, lunch at a restaurant, meeting up with a friend for coffee, picking my new glasses, a little shopping, and just happily walking in the streets of Metz center.
