Such a good box this month!

Seaweed Wrap, Hot Stone Massage, Dry Flotation, Hydrotherapy, Mud Room, Sauna, Aromatherapy Room. . . we might need to make this weekly.ย  ๐Ÿ™‚

*A break from the Lisbon posts

The box arrived early this morning while I was packing for Valencia- good timing and another great box!

. . . and a healthy dose of trip planning. Now confirmed for Valencia, Lisbon & Formentera. Plans are never set in stone until the Amex gets involved.ย  ๐Ÿ™‚

New beauty box time!ย  ๐Ÿ˜€

When we moved from Australia to France, our alcohol allowance was very small, so Scott grabbed a few Aussie & NZ beers to bring, and that was that.ย  This time however, our wine allowance is 90 litres with 110 for beer, and our removals agent specifically said, “have fun shopping.”ย  And so, we have.

wines- small

So far there’s a heavy emphasis on Bandol reds and Belgian beers with more Champagne and all the liqueurs to come tomorrow.

I also started working on my parapharmacie list, so I was super chuffed when I went to pick up some Caudalie Vinoperfect Radiance Serum this morning, and I found this pale mofo bargain of the week:

serum- small

The full sized serum plus a full sized 50 face sunscreen for 39 Euros.ย  Considering the serum alone retails for $79 in the States, I am a happy bunny today.ย  ๐Ÿ™‚

. . . with an entire French parapharmacie.

beach products- small

That’s the thing about hopping around rather remote islands: if you’re going to need it, you better take it.ย  Who knows when you’ll stumble upon a decent shop?ย  #firstworldproblems ย  ๐Ÿ˜‰

This post is mostly for Diana.

I recently did a beauty swap with a friend in the States, and I managed to use 7 (!) of the products she sent in one sitting. ย This is the anti #allnatural #nomakeup selfie. ย This the #expensiveandhighmaintenance selfie.


I used Tata Harper moisturiser, Bobbi Brown concealer, au Naturale highlighter, Bobbi Brown creme blush, Well People brightening stick, Follain lip balm & Sappho lip gloss.


Thanks again, Diana! ย ๐Ÿ™‚
