When SEPHORA dumped me

When SEPHORA came to the Netherlands in 2008, I knew that it would be love at first sight. And my gut feeling was spot on. When we first met, I just felt that awesome connection you know? When you just feel like everything is right and every time you see each other you get butterflies in your stomach. That’s how my relationship with SEPHORA was like. We had a wonderful time together and it was like nothing could stop us.There was not a shopping day that went by without me paying a visit to SEPHORA. And we had some pretty amazing times together. Sephora was the only store that could fulfill my Benefit, Makeup Forever, Urban Decay and Too Faced needs. It was just what I needed at the time.

Then 2 years ago, when I was surfing on some blogs, I read the most dreadful thing I had ever come across in my entire  life. "SEPHORA will leave the Netherlands!" No, no no this can´t be happening! Why? How could they do this to me? I thought we had something special, and I couldn’t think of anything I had done to screw this up. (I am not kidding, I was actually heart crushed and my eyes were watering you guys…) Reading on I saw it had something to do with: ‘the Dutch market not being ready for a store such as SEPHORA’. That’s what really hit me the hardest. What we had was about money all along..  and I got so infuriated with SEPHORA. 

Thinking about this still makes my heart ache, and to be honest, I still feel resentment towards SEPHORA. Though I can’t really act on it because every time I go to another country the first thing I do is check to see if there is a SEPHORA store nearby. And whenever there is a SEPHORA store nearby, I HAVE to visit it. When I see SEPHORA I just feel so excited and filled with joy.

It’s still my number one love when it comes to shopping and if it would ever decide to come back to me, I would accept SEPHORA back in my life with open arms. Until then, I guess I just have to wait until SEPHORA realizes that life without me sucks….

  1. I guess it's better to have loved and lost? :(
    We've not got one over in the UK yet and it's so frustrating as their stuff all looks fantastic!

    1. That's definitely true! I've had the chance to buy some amazing products, and sephora ships to the Netherlands now as well so at least that's something! But yes it sucks not to have one in your country!

      Oh Yes I saw your blog just this afternoon I've followed you ^^
