Just letting you know that we reached Newcastle safely. It's been crazy since we reached on the 11th- shopping for household necessities & walking A LOT (phew!) It gets really cold in the evenings, but I'm glad there's sun in the mornings. We are really happy with the house, it's cozy & clean, but I get scared to go upstairs or downstairs alone at night. The neighborhood is really quiet. I rarely see people around, but I see one black & white cat with green eyes, a lot. Yesterday, it perched on the fence below and just stared at me through the kitchen window! Creepy, especially since I'm not a cat person.
That's the backyard of our house. I can't wait to mow that lawn. Yes, we have to maintain it too. See that wooden door on the left? That's the garden shed. And no, I have never mowed a lawn in my life hehehe...!
12th Sept '12: Mr.CZ's birthday night. I got this Jane Norman Coral Sequin Lace Peplum dress that same day. I didn't take my nude pumps, so I had to make do with a black pair that night. I love the fit of it a lot! Please excuse the bad lighting. I will do a OOTD with it properly later. For now, you can view it in the website here
Awkward Bus Stop Posing. Those are my only comfy walking boots, so I have to get another pair soon. I'm thinking black knee length, 2" wedge heels.
Huge Sainsbury's Haul: This is the 2nd haul. We had bought bedroom, bathroom & some food items the day we reached.
- Celcus 32" LCD TV: We decided to buy a cheap tv & also get a blu-ray player, instead of buying a more expensive known brand tv. You know what I mean?
- Faux Silk Lamp for the bedroom, towels, kettle, pans, Bed sheets, etc, etc.....
.... and most importantly....
First Beauty Haul: Marc Jacobs Perfume Dot (Too cute for words! I will review it soon.), Sainsbury's Lime & Cranberry Body Washes, Batiste Cherry Dry Shampoo, VO5 Give Me Moisture Shampoo & Conditioner, Vaseline Cocoa Radiant Body Oil (love!), Boots Acetone Free Nail Polish Remover (not nice!).
Though I have been to Boots, I haven't hauled anything yet. I thought, make-up stuff need lots of thinking & calculating time.
Below is my last haul from New Delhi.....
All good shtuff in those bags! Normal blogging - lots & lots of pending reviews, and new products to talk about - will commence from tomorrow. My biological clock is still on Indian time, so.... early to bed & early to rise, and publishing before 5:00 PM IST.
You know, I rarely speak in Hindi in India, but here, I have to. My favorite words are: "Sabse sasta" (The cheapest). I chant those words when we're shopping so much that Mr.CZ is like, "I'm so tired of hearing those words out of you" =D [Boy, I need to get used to the prices here!]
