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.

My Beauty Blogging Camera + Tips

I'm  doing this post purely as a blogger, just to show you how I click photos for this blog. It's been requested by some other beauty bloggers, but all you non-bloggers might find these tips handy too, you know, when clicking pics of your kid's birthday cake, or your new mani to show-off on Facebook. If you don't have a camera, and never click photos, you can just look at the MAC lippies. I put them in there just for you =)
Since I couldn't use my camera, I used my mobile - Samsung S3. Previously Mr.CZ's, coz I was using Nokia Lumia 820, which I no likey. We swapped, sadly not before he dropped it on a marble floor and cracked the screen. I wanted it anyways, coz that Windows phone was driving me crazy.
My Camera: Sony Cybershot DSC-HX7V. When I'd gone shopping for a new camera (after my Panasonic Lumix got stolen along with my handbag), I picked this over 2 DSLR's - Canon EOS-something & Nikon-something. Reason: It's smaller & lighter than the 2. It's simply more convenient & fits in my small handbag too.
Main Features: 10x Optical Zoom, 16.2 megapixel sensor, 3D images, Full HD Movie. I really don't know the rest.


Beauty Blogging Behind The Scenes & 3rd Anniversary Giveaway Winners

So I was trying to come up with a topic to commemorate my blog's 3rd Anniversary, but just couldn't cook up anything for days! I had something else - something better - in mind, but that'll take a lot more effort & time (which we don't have). So, this is the best I could do in a short time.
