Toiletries are all accessable and not that expensive, I stocked up on all my brands before I came here and it cost me 734.00 UK Ponds in excess luggage, only to walk across from my hotel to a wee supermarket and the whole lot were in there Only thing I have found difficult to get is Maybeline mascara the pink and green one, apart from that everything is here, Oh and maybe some cold remedy stuff like day/night nurse as you find that for the 1st 6 months you have a constant sore throat and cold.

Maybe for the lady of the house but not for the man...he can get a wonderful trim for less than two quid and get a free head massage thrown in almost anywhere.

its just a fact... I didnt really make anything up! anyway, on a more serious note, it sounds like a corporate environment. So you're better off doing the whole business woman look (which is quite a turn on too) so either way, win win situation for ya!!

sigh, me and my words of wisdom!!! priceless!! gotta admit!
