Would You Help Me Make My Wish List for the First Friends & Family Sale in Belgium?

Hey everyone!

Happy Saturday! I hope your weekend is treating you well. I’m going to a friend’s tonight for a girls’ night in, but other than that with this weather not much else has been planned.

I was overexcited this week when the mail lady gave me a letter with the invitation to the ICI PARIS XL Friends & Family sale! ICI PARIS XL and I go way back. The first time I came to Belgium (for a month in 2006), I spent SO much time there gawking at perfumes (I think I went home with three). When I came back to live it is also where I get most of my high-end makeup/perfumes.

I know that Freidns & Family sales are common in the US, but in Belgium this is virtually the first ever I’ve heard of! The coupons give customers 21% off the member price (which is already lower than the regular price), and I get giddy thinking about what I can get!

So now, dear readers, would you be so kind as to contributing some ideas to my wish list?

I already know I have to get a new bottle of Clinique Take the Day off because I ran out of it a couple of days ago (before I can do that, I’ll just have to live without liquid eyeliner and waterproof mascara). I know I want to try a Guerlain Rouge G, but I don’t know which color. I would also love to lay my hands on the Dior Diorshow Maximizer Lash Plumping Serum. Has anyone tried this? Does it work for you? I’m open to all other suggestions!

For those of you who don’t live here, ICI PARIS XL carries brands such as Dior, Guerlain, Givenchy, Chanel, YSL, Clinique, Estee Lauder, Lancome, Shiseido, and so on. The sale is on from the 20th till the 26th, and I’d really appreciate any ideas you might have!

Would you help?

Goodbye Dullness, Hello Baby Skin! Philosophy The Microdelivery Peel Review

Exfoliating is an important step in skincare regimen. However, up until not so long ago, my weekly exfoliation was very basic. I chose something with fine grain, gently massaged it over my face for about a minute, rinsed it off, felt some kind of improvement in the texture of my skin, and then I called it a day. Then along came Philosophy The Microdelivery Peel, and I have never looked back!

Philosophy The Microdelivery Peel is an at-home version of medical microdermabrasion. It is supposed to smooth and resurface rough texture, help minimize the look of fine lines, and help brighten and even skin tone.
