September '16 Haul: Part 2 🌵

It's already almost the end of October, yet I only managed to post the second part of my September haul. This month had been so hectic, I rarely even have time to calm down and relax. This weekend is probably the only rest time I'll have before everything turns bizarre again.

So, let's take a look at what else I bought!

13th item: Queen of Hearts by Colleen Oakes

I spend most of my money on books (novels, photobooks, notebooks, etc.), I can never help it whenever I find any books with gorgeous covers. Queen of Hearts captured my attention ever since I saw it in one of the bookstagram accounts that I followed on Instagram. The cover is absolutely gorgeous and the synopsis is quite intriguing too. It's a story about the Red Queen, who is the villain in Alice in Wonderland. I really like to know stories from the villains' point of views; they could become evil because of reasons. That's what made this book a must have for me, and I also did get it with a very cheap price!

Bought from: alyssa1986 @ carousell

14th item: Mini cactuses

Don't you just think cactuses (cactuses or cacti?) are cute? I've always wanted to have a cactus because I adore them so much and it reminds me slightly of hedgehogs I've always wanted a hedgehog too but mom says no, but I'm pretty scared the cactus is going to die. When I was small, me and my sisters all got a cactus each to take care of: all of them died. But this time, I braved myself to take care of this little baby, I hope it'll live for a long time.

I actually only ordered one cactus, the one on the right. But because the shipping was delayed, the seller gave me another cactus for free. I'm happy that my cactuses are not alone.

15th item: White blouse

White is really something that I hope I will be able to pull off confidently one day. The colour risks making me look fat, so I always avoid it. But I'm so happy I found this long blouse, the cutting actually didn't make me look fat. Or at least I can walk leisurely while wearing it without fearing looking huge. The picture is a bit blurry though since the lack of lighting...

16th item: White diamond printed shawl

Bought this because I wanted more printed shawls, and this one matches my white blouse just now.

17th item: Mermaid hand drawn tote bag

I love love love tote bags; there is no such thing as having too much tote bags. This one is hand drawn personally by one of my best friends (wafahusenn @ instagram), and it is officially my favourite tote bag ♥ Mermaid is lahv.

18th item: Poop plushie

I've had too much plushie, to be honest. This one is not for me though, I bought it for my little sister, because she loves the poop emoji a lot and she really adores poop emoji plushies. I couldn't afford to buy a big one for her, so I bought this guy for her. She'll totally love it (I hope!)

19th item: Aloe Vera Gel

My skin is quite dry, so I constantly need to moisturise my face, and this Aloe Vera Gel had been one of the best option. I've tried a lot of products, and it's safe for me to say this one is the best. It helps to prevent my skin from being dry, and it's good as a make up base too, I think.

Update: Yes, I'm aware this one is not the original one from Nature Republic. Refer to the comments as to why I'm currently using this.

Well, that's the end of my September haul. Do look forward for my October haul!

Till next time ♡ Love, Maira


  1. Do you think Nature Republic aloe vera gel 98% is original? Sebab Nature Republic keluar yg 92% je hehehe☺

    1. Haha I know that, I used to use the one from Nature Republic. This one was given to me by someone, and since I pretty much have loads more things on my to-buy-list, I just use this one for the time being.

  2. Sorry if I am a bit of a noob. But, how to use that Aloe Vera Gel?

    1. Hi there! Nawh, don't say that. It's never too late to learn, and there's really no "correct" way to use it. As for me, I basically use it on my face and neck because I have dry skin. It helps to keep my skin hydrated. Sometimes I even use it on my hands when I'm in a rush and couldn't find my lotion. I heard that some people also use it on their hair to make them stronger.

      Basically, you can use it anywhere on your body! Oh I also use it to prevent my lips from getting chapped. Hope this helps ♡
