New PINK Blogging Camera | Hello Kitty Box | Minnie Mouse Socks

15th Nov '13, Friday:
Sometime in November '13, I spotted this camera in one of Shifa's (Get GawjusInstagram photos. In that moment, my life changed. By that, I mean I went CRAZY! You know I love them PINKS. It was like I was meant to see it, coz I'd been thinking about a new camera.
After googling, I found out it's a Special Limited Edition that launched in late 2012. It was sold only by a few sellers online, and they either seemed dodgy or money-hungry. Oh, and one Ebay UK seller stated that it's only "Virtually Used", whatever that means. I wanted Brand New!

16th Nov '13, Saturday:
After hours of googling.... 
Mr.CZ: 'It's okay. You have to let it go now. When it's not available anymore, what can you do?'
Me: 'No. I WILL get it. I don't give up easily on something I really want.', I said patiently & confidently like some kind of tycoon, but in my head: I was lying on the living room floor, pulling my hair, and crying 'Whyyy?!!! Ahhh!!!'
A few hours later that same Saturday evening, I found a seller! Awesome price, brand new + I get 1 extra lens. Pure, unadulterated happiness. Husband was relieved too, I think. ('Okay, now she will stop whining about it, and stop making that wretched face.')

19th Nov, Tuesday:
It was delivered! 3 days after ordering. Now you'd think it's a happy ending. Well, not yet. I had to wait for almost 2 months to see it! It was delivered to Delhi, and I was still in Scotland. Brother-in-law sent a pic of the sealed pink box, and I just had to look at it and count the days.....
18th Jan '14:
 I un-boxed it, and it was just like I imagined. Pretty. Pink. Perfect.
About Nikon 1 J1: It's a mirrorless camera, not a DSLR. But it performs almost the same. Came with D-ZOOM KIT: 10-30mm + 30-110mm. Records Full HD MOVIE 1080/60i. Please go to Nikon website for full specs.
About The PINK: This is a very pink pink. The other pink that was launched later is an icy pink.
 Flash pops up with a click. Uber cute! ♥

Pic above taken with this camera. If you want to check out more photos clicked with Nikon J1, please go HERE & HERE. I still need to get to know it a little bit more, but so far it's quite user-friendly.
Hello Kitty Box is from H&M. Kid's section, of course. I saw it the last weekend in Scotland, and I convinced the husband to let me buy it, even though our luggage space was already limited.
Minnie Mouse Socks are from Primark
Other things in pic: Pink bow false eyelash case, MAC Chatterbox Lipstick.
Primark Minnie Mouse Socks

Even the box is all pink and polka dots _

The bag & accessories are pink too.

You could say I picked this over the Canon Rebel T3i/600D.

I'm happy, and hope you are also happy I went for Pink & Cute, instead of Black & Technical! =D

Happy Weekend, all! Talk to you again Monday.
