Winter Haul

Yesterday, I shared some items I bought from Romwe. It dawned on me that I’ve bought quite a few things recently, so I wanted to combine them all to make a seasonal haul post.

Here we go!


I bought two sweaters from a thrift shop recently. I love layering, and every year I always buy more jumpers/sweaters. They’re so comfy and you can never have enough. This ‘P’ one is my favourite. It reminds me of my letterman jacket, and I really like the colours. I also like this black crop knit sweater. It’s super warm! I also got these unicorn slippers which I mentioned in an earlier post.



I don’t often wear jewellery, or buy it for that matter. But one afternoon, I impulsively bought these. Two pairs of earrings and five rings. I picked gold items, and I do love looking at them. It’s very rare for me to remember to wear any though.

Skincare and Makeup

beauty products

I haven’t been buying makeup much lately. Partly because I’m wanting to save, and also cause nothing has been jumping out at me. I have used up two travel sizes of the UD All-Nighter Setting Spray, so I bought the full size one as I really like it. I also wanted to try a new primer, and decided to give the UD Quick Fix one a go. Recently, I also picked up this little face mask from Lush. It smells nice and calming. I’ve yet to use it, and I hear that the product can sometimes be hard to work with, but I’m keen to try it.

Cross Stitch

cross stitch kit

I’ve mentioned my love of cross stitches a few times, so I ended up buying one. This was before I found my big bag filled with cross stitch kits waiting to be done. Still, this bunny picture was too cute, and I’m definitely going to complete it!


scented candles

We have been into scented candles more and more. It’s nice to have them fill up the house. I’ve been really loving the coconut one lately.

We also bought this piece of canvas art to go above our bed. We’ve been wanting to fill up the empty space for a while but we couldn’t find one we liked enough. Rory found this oil painting (Sunrise Sakura it’s called) on Amazon and we really liked it. It reminds us of our Japan trip and it’s also just pretty.

That’s all for this wintry haul! What have you bought recently?


Hello internet! My name is Angela. I write daily about my travels, life, thoughts, and ramblings. I live down in New Zealand with my lovely husband, Rory. Thanks for stopping by!
  1. The bunny!!! 😍I have two rabbits ( and would love to do that one!

    1. It’s so sweet! When I saw the kit, I knew I wanted to do it πŸ™‚

  2. I was SO confused as to why you would be doing a winter haul in the middle of summer and then I realised you must live on the other side of the world (oops) now you’ve got me all in the mood for autumn. What a great haul of things, especially all that jewellery! I love it <3

    1. Thanks! Haha, it’s something that comes up often! We often forget about how the seasons are opposite on the other side of the world πŸ˜€ I hope you’re enjoying summer!

      1. It really does mess with my head! I’m not normally a summer person so I’d much rather be enjoying your winter right now haha! :’)

  3. So funny reading this when it’s boiling hot here!

    1. Haha, it’s funny to think that you guys are having such hot weather while we’re stuck in winter πŸ™‚

  4. The jewelry is beautiful (:

    1. I think so too! I’m quite into minimalist pieces πŸ™‚

  5. I’ve had a sample of the primer and I absolutely loved it! Also I really love the jewelry!

    1. I haven’t used it yet, but I’m hearing good things!

  6. Wow! Everything looks good. I want to try the vanilla and jasmine candles!! <3

    1. Thanks Thea! It has such a pleasant scent!

      1. Do you like vanilla scents? I”m addicted to them. It’s my favorite scent haha πŸ™‚

        1. I do! It’s a nice, classic scent. Not too overpowering πŸ™‚

  7. The slippers are soooo cute! The jewellery is pretty too πŸ˜€

    1. They’re so comfy! I wear them on a daily basis haha!

      1. Are they warm? I imagine they’d keep your feet nice and snuggly 😊

        1. They are warm! I do wish the sole was a little softer, but that’s only a minor complaint. With socks on, they’re perfect πŸ˜€

          1. Do they have the little grippy dots on the bottom?

          2. Yep πŸ™‚

  8. On first I thought those are cow slippers, but then I saw glittery horn. They are super cute, perfect for winter definitely. xx

    1. Haha, it’s the colours of the slippers too, you could easily confuse them for cows until you notice the horn! They’re definitely handy in this cold season πŸ™‚

  9. I love your little picture above the bed! πŸ™‚ Also those unicorn slippers!

    1. Thank you! We’ve been wanting to hang something above the bed but couldn’t settle on anything for a while. We liked the sunrise sakura one, cause it reminds us of Japan πŸ™‚

  10. I love scented candles when it’s cold. Those slippers are cute and I like the jewellery – despite also not really buying it.

    1. It just makes the room seem more cozy. I’ve really been enjoying using the candles lately.
      I’ve never been into jewellery too much, but I do love looking at them! Especially the more minimalistic pieces πŸ™‚
