Outfit Of the Day, Mini Haul & Some Very Thoughtful Gifts From The Man

One: Posing in that position (maybe 7 times to get it right) will make your thigh muscles very angry at you. Going down the stairs was a pain even after 2 days! >.<
Two: I ended up sitting in most of the pics because the camera kept cutting my head off.
Three: Please excuse the messy background. We always think about tidying it up, but it's always raining & wet. Sheesh, I didn't even notice that stick branch on the ground until I was editing these pics.

Polka Dotted Shorts With Gold Bow Belt: Primark
Sweater: Primark
Tights: Primark
Shoes: Vincci
Gloves: Primark. Gold bows are brooches from another top
Bag: Ben de Lisi
Necklaces: Accessorize
Bow Earrings: Vincci 
Lipstick: MAC Bare Again Sheen Supreme Lipstick (shown here)
Btw, I asked IVC readers in Facebook (here) to help me "quote" the following photo, and I picked the one that suits it best......
I thought it was clever =) Thanks to Priyanka & everyone who took a shot. 



On to the mini haul.....
I grabbed these jewelry pieces from Primark: Bow Ring (£1.50 = Rs.133) & Chartreuse Earrings (on sale for £1= Rs.89). I'm so into chartreuse these days.
Garnier BB Cream Miracle Skin Perfector: There are 4 types of Garnier BB Creams in the UK- Daily All-In-One (Original), Oil-Free version, Sensitive Skin version, Anti-Ageing version. I got the original one in Light (right in pic). Shade Medium is about 2 shades darker than my skin tone. I hear they launched only 1 shade in India. What's it like? 
Thoughtful Gifts! So I told you Mr.CZ had gone to Leeds and I was staying in Newcastle alone for 2 nights, right? He brought me these......
Hotel toiletries! You know I love them. I did a post on some from a vacation here
Mr.CZ: "Here. I stole these for you." 
Hahaha..... yes, he really said that! It was just too funny! =D
See you again soon in a Christmas Makeup Tutorial.

  6. Thank you for the post. I am feeling very vulnerable and deeply upset over recent happenings over the world (you might be knowing). Your post lifted my mood a bit. Specially love the last pic. Listening to some women power songs and that pic is like "I may look delicate, but I've strength of Gods in my soul."

    Thank you.

  21. Ah!~ I can't get enough of your outfit posts! Those bows and polka dots are just killing me!! *sigh*
    AND I LOL'd at the hotel toiletries bit. I do the same and I'm often teased by my Mum when she comes across my collection. ( > v < )
    Oh, and um...I found a lot of bow-related pictures on a certain site that you might like. But I don't wanna be written off as a spammer...Just let me know if you want the link? ( ; w ; )

I ♥ finding little notes in my Vanity Case, so do drop one. I read all of them & I try my best to reply to each & every one of them [check back in 2-3 days =D] but most times it's physically impossible! Either way, I love to hear from you & really appreciate you taking the time out to share your thoughts <3

Thank you for reading! :)
