Happy Birthday IVC! I thought about posting this yesterday, but I got busy and by the time I got home and finished cooking dinner, it was after 2 am IST. I decided to just chill and watch new ep of Breaking Bad with the man (Yay! It's back!)
Anyways, I know some of you expect blog anniversary posts every year, so here it is! =)
4 years ago yesterday, I sat down and wrote my first blog post, and I owe a lot of my current happiness to that small decision. I celebrated with a visit to a place called Shoe Heaven. If you follow me on Instagram (@czloves), you would have seen it before.
So I've been in the UK for almost a year now, and I only came to know about New Look's Shoe Heaven 2 weeks ago! Hawww I don't know! Maybe it wasn't there in Newcastle? I saw "Shoe Heaven - 1st floor" one day, I went up the escalator, and when I got off it & saw hundreds of shoes all at once, violins played in my head.
That day, I couldn't find any shoe I liked in my size, which is 3 (but some 3's are still too big.)
Yesterday, I found a pair of nude cutout heels with back zipper that fit. While I stood in the queue to pay for them, my eyes landed on another pair displayed on a nearby shelf. I went to try them on....compared both styles wearing one on each foot....felt my heart tear a little....and finally decided which ones I wanted more.....
Called Light Brown Ankle Strap Court Shoes, but I think they are more taupe. They looked more dainty and womanly on my feet than the other style. Available in black too, but only these had Size 3. I would've picked these instead of black, anyways. Decently priced too - £19.99 | Rs.1895. I imagine shoes like these cost at least Rs.2500 in Delhi, what do you say?
Hope you like them! Meant to be... hehe! Of course I'm still thinking about the 2 styles in the first 2 pics up there. Ah, someday. I'm hoping someday is this weekend! ;)
On to the beauty haul....
Bourjois Color Boost in Red Sunrise. Been thinking about this shade since they were launched. Swatches of these here. | Maybelline Superstay Lip Color in Non-Stop Red | Collection 2000 Perfecting Minerals Powder ~ Powder is nice, but the brush is very scratchy. | In the background are just necessities: Vaseline Cocoa Radiant Body Oil (repurchase), Superdrug Cotton Pads.
I went looking for cute cupcakes, but I don't know the shops that sell them here, since I rarely even eat cakes. So I just went to Millie's Cookies, and got a Red Velvet Cake.....
Just so I can make a wish. If you want, you can do it too ^.^
The people at Superdrug had to chase me out again at 6 pm, for the 4th time, I think.
SA: "Just letting you know we're shutting now."
I should just stop going in the evenings. (Maybe I'll hide somewhere next time. Stay there for one night and come out the next day and blend in with the customers. Nah, they'll turn off the lights.)
THANK YOU for reading, everyone! Then & Now.
