056. Last week's (book) haul + those H&M snowflake earrings.

I don't always go out to the mall, but whenever I do, I feel like a little girl let loose in a candy store. While I do like shopping, one would likely find me in the bookshop than in the beauty counter--although I do like makeup, I still have plenty and could go without a new item of beautifying gunk, save for the primer--which is something I couldn't do without. And skincare stuff too. ;)

Sometimes, the best things happen when they unfold unexpectedly. Like the Jojo Moyes book. I was supposed to get the sequel to Me Before You, but sadly, it went out of stock. Instead, I bought The Ship of Brides--another book from the same author that I wanted to read. That book was really something--Jojo Moyes really knows how to make you feel like you were one of the brides in the ship--and see things happen. Maybe one of these days, I'll write how I felt about that book. And probably with Me Before You too!

The white book on top was one bought out of sheer curiosity. Besties is a book that is full of surprises. I never knew how I could relate with the authors in some way--until I read this book! It covers everything from finances, food, friendship and being bullied. 

And finally, the book that I've always wanted to buy! Well, one of. My interest in lettering, calligraphy, and typography is growing tenfold, and I really want to do more. And practice more. This book is more than just a practice pad--it shows different styles that you can learn. Can't wait for the weekend so I can get started! 

After purchasing the books, I went to H&M for a while to look at clothes. Not that I could afford to buy them at the moment, but it's nice looking at them. Apart from clothes-ogling, I was there to buy their nautical-themed earrings, but alas, sadly, they weren't there anymore. So, instead, I bought this little beauty--a set of three snowflake earrings. It's a little too late for Christmas--and winter, for one--but I found that I couldn't resist. So there you go. 

My favourite is the third pair. Very delicate-looking, in spite of it being the biggest of the three. 

That would be all for the time being. Have you had a "haul" for the week, day, or month--and what was your favourite item? Please don't be shy to comment! :)

Till then! :)
