Royal Stamps of Mine

Yiippiieeyy!! I'm happy! I'm happy!! I got a mail from UK. Okay, I'm sorry that I was and am so excited because a mail! But this is not JUST an ordinary mail, but this is a royal mail, I mean, royal stamps. hoho..

Thanks to my friend and my English tutor, Charles for this mail. He's so kind. When he went back to London he was kindly asking me that I want something from his mother country. He knew that I love magazine, so he offered to give me some magazines (and he did!). But then he asked me again about what I would love to have from overseas, then I said that I always collected stamps back then and I would love to have UK's stamps. Fortunately, the timing was just perfect. Britains were crazy about The Royal Wedding, and of course its souvenir: Prince William and Miss Kate Middleton's limited stamps.








I think to get these stamps, ppl have to pre-order them at Benham? I don't know, I just assumed it when I read the envelope.


Along with the stamps, the package came with few magazines. One UK BAZAAR (March issue) and three YOU (27 March, 3 April, 17 April issue). I've never have UK's mags before, I'm so excited!
Do you know about YOU magazine? never heard of. But it's pretty good to read(:

It seems that Paltrow has became so famous these months because of her move to the UK.


Gwyneth Paltrow in BAZZAR.
At the top pic, I feel that at that angle, Gwyneth is a little bit looks like Blake Lively..Do you agree with me? or is it just me who thought that? xD

Gwyneth Paltrow in YOU

  9. Aaah so sweet of your tutor to send you all these British goodies! And you were indeed lucky, with the royal wedding going on ^^ Foreign magazines (even if they're written in English) are fascinating. I'm always amazed at how different and, at the same time, how identical the content can be :P

  13. WHOA! This is neat-o! I'm jealous. I was creepishly obsessed with the royal wedding and William and Kate. They're just perfect, to me. And her dress made me crazy all over.

  18. Hi there!!! Im finally back to the blogging world, I was in studying-like-crazy-world for over a week! T_T I totally agree that Blake Lively does look like Paltrow in that angle! Wow these stamps seem expensive!!! They must be an extensive collectors item, especially if you collect stamps! =D how sweet of your tutor to have sent you these!

    Oh tinted moisturizer is just like bbcream but without all the nice goodies like whitening affects and anti-aging etc. It's basically moisturizer with a bit of foundation on it, the coverage is VERY minimal though and people who are used to wearing foundations usually do not like tinted moisturizer too much because of their minimal coverage. hahaha after I watch a scary movie I always need something to come to the bathroom with me, usually it's my dog hahahaha I feel bad for him sometimes =P
