Monday Evening, 24th September '12, Newcastle Upon Tyne: It rained the whole frickin' day, the internet hadn't been activated yet, I was feeling out of sorts. I just wanted to curl up on the couch with some random show on British tv & a cup of Tetley. BUT we had to make a trip to Sainsbury's (supermarket) to buy some necessary groceries. On the way, my right hand was almost frozen, because both Mr.CZ & I had to hold the edges of the umbrella, so the wind wouldn't blow it into a Y shape. If not for Instyle, some cute table mats & a pack of chilli powder (authentically Indian, mind you), it wouldn't have been worth it.
The magazine section is near the entrance, so that's where I ended up first. Hello, Instyle magazine! Olivia Palermo on the cover. A pretty thing, but who is she? I've seen her somewhere. One evidently famous celeb I do not know. Ooh! FREE Clinique products!
Price: £3.80 (Rs.330)
It took me a while to notice that they had a different free product on each issue: Repairwear Laser Focus Serum, High Impact Mascara, Long Last Gloss Wear, Turnaround Overnight Radiance Moisturizer. 'Collect All 4 Amazing Products' they say. Yeah, right. The tactics these people! I picked the moisturizer, coz I really needed one =)
And the FREE gifts for next month- October 2012 - are......
Benefit! Sun Beam, Cha Cha Tint & Benetint. Mini versions, of course.
They lure.....and I will definitely walk right into it.
I just love the free magazine gifts in the UK. Nail polishes & whatnot. Last time I was here, there were Clinique make-up pouches and - goodness gracious - flip flops!
Are you reading this Indian magazines? It doesn't have to be Clinique & fancy brands, I'd be happy with a cute nail buffer.
With September's Cosmopolitan India, I got a sachet of "Silent Valley Neem Tulsi Face Wash Gel" I use it as the mag's bookmark, that's how I remember exactly.
