Memebox Jackpot Box 2nd Place

After my ranting about the customs declaration and delays, I was pleasantly surprised to find out that I had won the 2nd place Memebox Jackpot Box, which was pretty lucky, as only 14 other people won this box (15 including me!). At least all that trouble wasn’t in vain!

I won’t go into the details of this box — there are just too many products in there, 24 of them actually. Since I haven’t been a long time Memebox customer, I did not get any duplicate products. I noticed that most of these products were featured in other recent Memeboxes and Superboxes. Thankfully none of them were purchased by me.

This box included 3 eye liners, which unfortunately, I very rarely use. Two came in black and one in hot pink. Two of them were randomly selected. I wish I had received other colours besides another black and pink.  There’s also mascara, which I also rarely use because most of them stain or flake off. There were 2 lip products randomly selected as well, and although one of them was a brighter coral than I am used to, I am happy that I didn’t get any orange, bright red or bubblegum pink, since those are my least favourite colours.

Included were 2 eye shadow products, one in pencil form and the other in a tube form. I will have a fun time trying them! The 3 BB/CC creams that I received should work well with my skin tone. I don’t think I’ve ever received one from Memebox that hasn’t matched.

Plenty of skin treatments were in there too, with a handful from IOPE, which is a very expensive brand. A few other random items were included too, like some flavoured water sachets, mascara, eyelashes, toner wipes, peeling pad, collagen and a tube of hair treatment.

jackpotbox_2So yeah, very happy with winning this box out of all the others! I was so worried that I would just get the last place box. I didn’t receive any nail polish or some other lip products, but that’s ok. I am happy with what I received. I will hold off on buying more boxes now, since I have way too much stuff to use. I also think that I need to stop receiving boxes by mid-November. Packing up will commence afterwards.


Letzte Woche hatte ich gar keine Lust einen “Minipost Mittwoch” zu posten. Manchmal ist nichts passiert, deshalb habe ich nichts zu schreiben, dann passiert plötzlich alles.

Ich habe heute neue Memebox-Codes für September bekommen:
TSDR – $7 off on shipping when you buy 2 or more Memeboxes
1PV1 – 15% off on orders above $150
94U8 – 10% off on orders above $100
Hoffentlich werden sie sich sehr nützlich, wenn ihr Memeboxen kaufen möchtet!

Leider kann Spätzli nicht mit uns in die USA ziehen, da sein eigener Flug zu teuer ist. Er darf auch nicht im selben Flugzeug mit uns fliegen. Ich weiss es nicht, was ich tun soll. Ich muss warscheinlich meinen Spätzli verlassen. Das macht mich echt traurig.

Immerhin mache ich noch weiter mit meiner Diät. Ich habe einen Hula-Hoop, der Spass macht. Fittness-Training mache ich auch fast jeden Tag zu Hause. Hoffentlich lohnt es sich nach einigen Monaten.

Ich habe meine dunklen lila Wolle bekommen, und habe schon mit dem Stricken meiner Decke angefangen. Ich habe 25 Knäuel gekauft, und ich benutze ungefähr alle 17 Reihen einen Knäuel. Hoffentlich werden sie genug, um die ganze Decke zu stricken. Ich habe bisher 7 Knäuel benutzt.
Ich habe nun auch viele andere Strick-Ideen. Ich möchte eine Tasche und ein Kissen aus Filzwolle machen. Das wäre wirklich herausfordernd, weil ich noch nicht etwas Nützliches aus Filz gemacht habe. Die Wolle wird teuer, aber… würde das meine Entscheidung ändern? Sicher nicht!

Meiner Meinung nach sind einige Charlie Bears aus England sehr niedlich. Ich habe schon Demi bestellt, und jetzt will ich Jenkins kaufen. Meine Mutter hat auch einen von mir bekommen, und sie findet ihn schön und gut verarbeitet. Vorher möchte ich gar keine Bären in meiner Plüschsammlung.

Last week, I was in no mood to do a “Minipost Mittwoch”. Sometimes absolutely nothing happens, so I have nothing to write, and then suddenly everything happens.

Today, I received new Memebox codes for September:
TSDR – $7 off on shipping when you buy 2 or more Memeboxes
1PV1 – 15% off on orders above $150
94U8 – 10% off on orders above $100
Hopefully they will be really useful when you want to buy yourself some Memeboxes! More offers on my Memebox Deals page.

Unfortunately, Spätzli won’t be moving with us to the US, because his own flight is too expensive and he is not allowed to fly with us on the same plane. I don’t know what to do. I’ll probably be leaving him behind, and that makes me really sad.

Anyway, I’m still continuing with my diet. I have a hoola hoop now, which is really fun to use. I also do some exercise at home almost every day. Not too much, but at least I try to do it regularly. Hopefully it will all be worth it after a few months.

I have received my purple yarn and have already started knitting my Afghan throw. I bought 25 balls of this yarn, and I use roughly one ball every 17 rows. Hopefully it will be enough to knit the entire throw. I’ve used up 7 balls already. 
I now have so many other ideas for other projects. I want to make a bag and a cushion out of felt wool. That will be challenging, since I have not yet made anything useful out of felt wool. The wool will be expensive, but… would that stop me? Certainly not!

A few Charlie Bears from England are really very cute in my opinion. I’ve already ordered one, Demi, and now I want to order Jenkins. My mother has also received a Charlie Bear from me, and she thinks it is really sweet and nicely made. I never really wanted to have any bears in my plush collection until now.
