Oh my God! I never thought I’d get it, but I finally received my Birchbox July and August 2018 on the last day of August. In fact, I was thinking of contacting Birchbox when by surprise I found it waiting for me in my mailbox. You see, we moved to a new apartment and I honestly forgot until the last minute about the change of address. I changed it online, but I knew that there was a big chance that they had probably sent it already to my old address. Honestly, I don’t know what happened. I don’t know if Birchbox went out their way for me to get my box or perhaps the new owners of my old apartment did. My bet is on Birchbox though. Anyways, I’m just glad that I finally got my box – plus this one is special, it’s the July and August combined!
After shopping for myself (click here for the post), it is time to shop for my 10-year school daughter who is going back to school on the 3rd of September. Actually, she’s sorta going back this week, but half-day only. The school calls it « stage de remise à niveau ». When the director asked me if it was something I was interested in for Baby Girl, I instantly agreed. After a 2-month break, I thought it would help her get back to the rhythm of waking up early, working on school stuff, eating at the proper time, and sleeping early. She can also work on the lessons she has difficulties in, particularly French. She’s doing well, but it’s always a bit tough to juggle several languages. We generally speak only English at home, Baby Girl speaks French at school but is also taking English and German classes, and the Husband and I speak in Filipino to each other at home.
I can’t believe the month of August is almost coming to an end! These past 2 months have been great. Baby Girl was off school and stayed at home. I tried to work less to spend as much time as possible with her. The Husband had a week off and we spent that together. Ahhhh … what fun that was! I simply cannot believe this is coming to an end! In a week, Baby Girl will be back to school and I’ll be back to working full-time. For this, we need to prepare ourselves accordingly, starting with new additions to our wardrobe. This post is for me, a selection of plus-size items, and the next post will be for Baby Girl.
I don’t know if you noticed, but I didn’t go shopping last week. 😱 My wallet was still recovering from Baby Girl’s communion. Haha. But you know me, I quickly went back to old habits. A little bit each time but regularly – that’s how I like it!
I swore that because I was off from work for most of the week, I would also be off from shopping. But nahhh, it just doesn’t work that way. But I was pretty reasonable, I think.
I finally got the perfume I had my eyes on for the longest time. Yay, happiness! I was going back and forth for a while because I’ve also been eyeing another one, but I finally bought it. The other one will be for the summer. Hihihi 🤭🤭 Plus, there was an ongoing sale, Les French Days, and I got 30% off. Perfection.
Another week. Another week of shopping. Surprise, surprise … I didn’t even really want to go shopping this week. But Baby Girl asked nicely if we could go to Primark in Metz, France. And so we did – I shopped in the name of love. 🤣🤣
