A Haul of Sorts

Hello again. I’ve been buying stuff lately, and thought it would be fun to do a random haul post. I also keep falling off the blogging wagon, so let me know how you guys are as well!

Anyway, here’s what I got recently.

2019 A5 Planner

I’ve tried keeping diaries in the past, and I always tend to give up a few months in. However, I got this on impulse as I liked it. It’s got monthly and weekly pages, as well as other random bits and pieces. I think I just have a weakness for stationary in general.

Mickey Mouse Earrings

Again, another impulse buy. But they were cute and on sale, so I figured why not.

Watermelon Shaped Charger

This was sort of an impulse buy. I have been wanting a portable charger for a while, as it seems convenient. I like being able to use my phone without having to be near an outlet cause it’s always running out of battery (cause of all the apps and games, so it’s my fault really). Plus, this is shaped like a watermelon, so I was swayed to get it.

Maternity Work Out Clothes

So now to clothes. Most, if not all, clothes I have bought in the last month have been maternity related. I decided to sign up to a pregnancy yoga class, and used that as an excuse to buy maternity work out clothes. They’re basically really comfy leggings and a top, that are super stretchy and accommodating as my bump grows. My previous workout clothes are not as comfortable now.

Maternity Swimsuit


I also am planning to try out some prenatal swimming classes. It’s like low-intensity water aerobics basically. I always love swimming around in water and being weightless. As my bump gets bigger, swimming is even more appealing. So, I wanted to get a maternity swimsuit that will also grow with me.

Hush Puppies Flats


I invested in some comfy flats. I have a weird habit of buying the cheapest ones and going through at least 2 pairs each spring/summer. This was a long time coming.

Mecca Beauty Box

So I didn’t really buy this. But I’m part of a beauty club programme with Mecca Maxima (a makeup store), and I’ve now spent enough money there that I get complimentary boxes with samples and goodies! I haven’t bought much makeup lately, so I was excited to get this email and see what they sent.

mecca box opened

  • Too Faced Melted Liquified Longwear Matte Lipstick in ‘Sell Out’
  • Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner in Intense Black
  • Kate Somerville Cold Cream Moisturizing Cleanser + Makeup Remover
  • Origins Clear Improvement Mask

I’ve only really tried the lipstick so far, and I like the colour.

I also have heard really good things about the liner. The other two, I’ll try out at some point, let me know if you guys have tried any before. I’m really happy with all the samples though, and I can’t wait to get the other boxes throughout the year!


I also didn’t buy this. I was lucky enough to have an old coworker gift us hers. Her own little bub has outgrown it, so she messaged me asking if we would like it. We said yes, and now we have a bassinet! She also gave us sheets and a newborn sleep swaddle too.

That’s all for my haul post. What have you guys bought recently?
