April '18 Haul

I haven't been posting anything lately, even my book reviews had to be stopped due to the hectic uni schedules. I'm actually supposed to be completing more essays today, but as a Queen of Procrastinating, here I am, dusting away the virtual dusts from my beloved blog instead of doing what I am actually meant to do.

Anyway, I'm bringing back my haul posts because I probably won't be able to do much haul post in the future. I'm already broke, guys. Kids at home, don't be like me :) Save money for future use!

In the mean time, please note the few changes I made for the blog: new header, new editing styles and also new watermark! Not sure how long I'll be using this watermark since the previous one did not even last for more than two posts, so I'm hoping this one will be my permanent watermark. What do you think of it?

1. PUMA X BTS Turin Shoes

First in the list: Puma x BTS Turin shoes! It has always been a dream of mine to purchase (at least) a pair of shoes from Puma, and I finally did it. Thanks to a good supplier, I managed to get it for a cheaper price, because let's admit it, Puma shoes can be quite expensive. 

This pair of shoes is also the result of a collab between Puma and BTS, which made it mean a lot more to me to own it! If I have to be honest, I preferred their previous collab design, Court Star, more than Turin, but the special plates at the front part of the shoes hooked me in. The fact that Bangtan's debut date is on it, and it is also designed by them means so much. 

As expected, it is very comfortable to be worn. The only problem I have with it is the colour; white is something that is very difficult to take care of. But everything else is top-notch. Till now, I have only worn it outside once. I'm too scared to let even a speck of dirt land on it ;-))))))

2. Inecto Naturals Coconut Moisture Cream

I don't actually eat or drink coconut drinks, but somehow I always end up liking products based off of coconuts. This moisture cream is one of it! I initially bought it to use on my face after running out of moisturiser, but my pharmacist-to-be older sister mentioned that coconut creams are not suitable to be used on the face as they have thick particles that may clog the pores. So, I'm currently using it as body lotion.

The texture is very thick, but it didn't really feel sticky when used on my body. Absolutely loving the scent of it, very sweet coconut-y smell but not overwhelming at all. This whole tub only costs RM30 in local Guardian stores, which is quite a bargain to me. Other than this moisture cream, this brand also have other products like shampoo, soap, oil, etc. I'm positive they all smell delicious, so I might check them out too in the future!

3. A pair of orange Socks 

I think by now, you guys know how much socks I have already bought: A LOT. Several months ago, I thought I managed to curb my socks buying addiction, but I guess not. Found this little one in Daiso, and I immediately loved it. The tassels at the side, combined with its bright orange colour made it looked fun! A must buy for me :)

4. Zebra Mildliner Double-Sided Highlighters

After watching other journalers and studygrams on Instagram using these, I finally have a set of my own! I am so in love with the colours, especially the yellow and red one. My journals have been looking great while using these. Being oblivious with a lot of things, I only recently found out that these babies are actually two-sided, one side highlighter and another side like a pen. All this time I thought they are just highlighters, shame on me for not realising this!

5. Bio-Essence Miracle Bio Water

By far, this is one of the best face mists I have ever tried. I'm a sucker for moisturisers and face mists, so I have tried a lot of brands before. There were great ones, but the price are way too high for my student-life budget. 

Bio-essence Miracle Bio Water is very affordable though! Only RM7 for this small bottle (other brands cost RM20+ for this amount). It can be used not only for the face, but for the body and hair too. Since the size is small, it can be carried anywhere inside your purse easily. I'd recommend this for everyone, especially since the weather nowadays are very hot and we always need to moisturise our face.

6. An Ocean of Grey by Kamalia Hasni

My favourite bookstagrammer finally made her debut with a poetry book: An Ocean of Grey! I was absolutely ecstatic when Malie (Kamalia Hasni) announced that she was going to release a book, and I felt so happy when receiving it. The book is beautiful and wonderful, the words flowing inside it speaking volumes of emotions. I love every single bit of it!

It's a collection of poems inspired by the author's past of breaking up with a loved one, and I can feel the strength of emotions inside the words; sadness, sorrow, misery. I may have not been in any relationship, but I've experienced enough broken friendships to understand the words. I'll be writing a full review of it soon when I complete reading the whole book.

7. Dear You,   Love,

I wouldn't call this a poetry book, it's more of a collection of short letters from random people. The letters are very fun to read, some of them were outrageous, but some of them felt so close to me. Some people may think it's a waste for me to have this book, but to me, it's actually quite meaningful to me. 

I've always loved the idea of writing letters to someone that we cared of (I wrote to my childhood crush once and it ended being a huge embarrassment to me hahaha). Writing letters and maybe having penpals are always something that I'd love to do, but I don't know where to start. I'm planning to actually start writing letters and have penpals during my next semester break, so if you're interested in exchanging mails with me, don't be afraid to contact me! I'd love to write to any of you ;)

Just as I mentioned earlier, I'm already broke now. Not actually really broke, but almost. So I'm going to start to save money from now on, but knowing how I am, I'll be posting haul posts too in the future. But hauls will be less frequent than now, and probably in a smaller scale.

Again, save money kids! Your future is at stake :')

Till next time ♡ Love, Humaira
