Haven’t used my blog in ages but back for now with hopefully some new upcoming posts. For today’s post I will be talking about the Bluxbox which I have recently tried. Let me first explain a little more about it.
BLUX is a beautybox company in The Netherlands. Each month they deliver a box between 8 to 10 products for 29,95 euro. The products inside always add up to around 100 euro. If you are interested and would like to check out the website.
Here is the link to it -> bluxbox.nl
The BLUX box is only available to be sent in The Netherlands and Belgium.
I have been sent a box to test and was very happy with the outcome and with the products that were inside the box. Each month you can order a box with different products and brands inside of your beauty box.
Give it a try and order a box yourself, you are always able to cancel the subscription of your box.

On the 16th of April 2017, after going up the Arc de Triomphe. We went for some dinner at Miss Ko. I recommend to book or reserve as it gets very busy and just to make sure you have a table I would book online which is very simple and easy to do, only its in french so make sure you are able to understand with what you are doing. we came in at 7:45PM and it was absolutely packed. We were given a table near the entrance which was very nice as you could watch people go by and walking in and out. The staff were very friendly and helpful explaining everything. The interior was fascinating and different to what you would see in a restaurant because they made it look like you were in Tokyo with having all these symbols and bright light colours. I am a massive fan of Asian food so this was really good and tasted like good quality. The atmosphere was pleasant and not too noisy with background music playing which I liked. I have been here 3x now and never have had a bad meal or bad experience. As starter I shared some dishes with my family and we had some sushi (which I absolutely love) also we had some edamame, Gyzos and a seaweed salad. As main course we had are own dishes and I had a noodle salad with chicken which tasted really good. Then as last as a dessert I took a funny and different type of thing which were mini doughnuts with 3 special surprise chocolate sauces. I didn’t expect it to be that good and loved the white sauces which was given. If you want a fun night definitely come here. I will always come back here when I am over in Paris. It’s also in a very good location as its just round the corner from the Champs-Élyseés and next to the Louis Vuitton store. I would rate this a 5 out of 5

On the 16th of April 2017, after a day of looking around the Louvre. We decided to go and have something sweet to eat at Ladurée as a late afternoon snack. When we got there, there was a pretty long line but some how we only waited for 10 minutes until we got a table and the table we had been given was pretty nice as we could watch people walk and stand by. The atmosphere was very pleasant and not too noisy. The place at Ladurée on the Champs-Élysées is huge theres around 3 floors where you can sit and eat and also there is a take out, which means you can buy chocolate or macaroons to take out with you. While we were there I ordered an ice coffee but it was quite strong so I kindly asked for some extra cold milk, also I ordered 4 mini macaroons to go with the ice coffee which was very nice as you can choose a variety of your own flavours which you want. It was really good and I recommend if you want something sweet or typical french to try to definitely come to this place as the service is very good even when they are absolutely full in the whole building. They don’t only serve sweet dishes here but also breakfast and lunch if you are interested. I would rate this a 5 out of 5
Ladurée – 75 Av. des Champs-Élysées, 75008 Paris, France
On the 16th April 2017, We had an early breakfast around 10:30AM and because we had a reservation booked we were able to get a table, there was actually no need for a reservation because there was barely anyone there but normally this place is busier in the summer and for lunch as you have an amazing view of facing the Louvre while eating. I am sure they also serve dinner which is nice to see in the dark and having a nice atmosphere of people constantly walking by from different corners and areas. The waiters and staff were friendly and some could speak better english than others. Because we had the Louvre booked at 11:20AM and we thought we were going to be late because we had to be there 20 minutes before hand. We told one of the waiters if the food could come a bit quicker and they were very polite and sorted this out for us. I ordered Toast with 2 different types of jams and a pot of honey, this was very nice and I enjoyed a lot. Along with the food I ordered a Iced Coffee which was really good and I wanted another one but didn’t have time for it. I would come again but the choice for breakfast was very small and I didn’t have much to pick from. Maybe for lunch it might be a different story. I would rate this a 4 out of 5 because of the lack of choice there was on the menu for breakfast.
Le Café Marly – 93 Rue de Rivoli, 75001 Paris, France
On the 15th of April 2017, after a whole day of looking around Paris and the Catacombs. We went to have dinner at L’avenue, which is a very popular and well known restaurant to go to because of all the celebrities that have been and you can spot now and then like Kim Kardashian and Kanye West also the rest of the Kardashian family and Jenners, Rihanna, Justin Bieber, Selena Gomez, and many other celebrities, most of them you might spot during Paris Fashion Week. Luckily I had reserved a table and we got in because while walking through to eat on the second floor, the restaurant was completely full when we arrived around 8PM. I suggest to book if you want to eat here for Lunch or Dinner. The staff were very efficient and friendly when bringing you to your table. The food is really good and a big range of choices for Starters and Main Courses. I ordered sliced avocado as starter and a steak with french fries as main course. Only I wouldn’t touch the candles or move them as they go off with moving it the slightest, which happened twice to our table. I would definitely come back again when around in Paris. The location is perfect as it’s not too far from Champs-Élysées and it’s between a lot of expensive brands shopping street. I would rate this a 5 out of 5
L’avenue – 41 Avenue Montaigne, 75008 Paris, France
On the 15th of April 2017, we went to Galeries Lafayette which is a massive department store with food, clothes and drinks. You could basically spend a whole 2 days in there. After looking around a bit we went to the 7th floor and found a place to eat called ”YOOM Dim Sum”. It wasn’t that busy but that was because we arrived around 12PM which for most people is not lunch time yet and so there was only a few people. We were able to choose our own table and so we chose the only table that was near the window and had a stunning view over Paris with the Opera and Eiffel Tower which we were able to see. The staff were friendly and didn’t take long for our food and drinks to come. We had ordered a few dim sums to share and to drink I ordered a Jasmine Tea. The food tasted really good, while we were sitting there it was getting very busy and by the time we left the place was completely full. As dessert a dish which caught my eye was a famous french inspired dumpling which was a chocolate steamed dumpling and it tasted amazing!!! as chocolate liquid poured out. I would definitely recommend this place if you are in or near Galaries Lafayette. I would rate this a 5 out of 5

On the 13th of April 2017, After we visited the Palace of Versailles, we drove back to Paris and it was already almost dinner time, We decided to go and eat near Trocadero which is where you can get the best view and best pictures to take of the Tour Le Eiffel (Eiffel Tower). We ate at a place called Le Coq which was on the corner near the roundabout, we ate here last time we came to Paris in the Summer for lunch and remembered the food was pretty good so this time we decided to go and eat here for dinner. We decided to sit outside because it wasn’t that cold and if you were cold there were heaters above. The only problem you will have if you are a non smoker is that most people who sit outside are smokers and if you don’t like eating while having someone smoking next to you then maybe this wouldn’t be a great idea. The staff are friendly and speak good english. We got some free bread and butter to eat and I had ordered as a started the Shrimp Dumplings which were very good as I am obsessed with Dumplings, as main course I ordered a Caesar Salad which was good but too big and I could barely finish it. But of course I had to have a dessert because one of them caught my eye which I have never seen before. It was called ”Notre Paris-Brest” meaning ”Our Paris-Brest”. I was not sure what it was but I wanted to try it and it was a sort of sugar bread with cream in it, I also ordered a Fresh mint tea but when they brought it, there was only a tea bag which I do not call fresh mint tea but then I opened the silver cup which the water was in and realised there was fresh mint tea in it, but still was not sure why they had brought a tea bag. Overall It was a good meal and I would come again and the atmosphere was nice, also when you sit outside you see people walking by which is nice to see. I would rate it a 5 out of 5
