Collective Non-Cosmetic Haul!

Well, almost everything… I have a couple more things I’ve bought since taking these original pictures… so I’ll stick those down at the end.
Bleach Keychain:
I believe I mentioned in my Anime post a little while ago that I had started reading Bleach. I’m maybe one-third to one-half of the way through it now, and I’m kinda getting into it. This keychain happens to be one of the coolest things ever, basically because I really really love how this hollow mask looks! It was a but pricy, I think almost $8, for a keychain, but I really liked it, so now I have it!
Cafe Au Lait Candle (Bath and Body Works):
Some of the three wick candles were 75% off at B&BW during their sale, and I’ve loved this scent for a while (coffee, duh!) so I had to pick one up. For less than $, as opposed to almost $23, this was a great deal!
Cotton Blossom body splash (Bath and Body Works):
During the B&BW sale, this body spray was $4, and at first, it smelled like the Clean Cotton perfume that Sephora sells, which literally smells like a fresh load of laundry. This one does have a fairly nice scent, but its much stronger and a little harsh if you use more than a single spritz. The orange flower might be what does it, but it’s hard to say. I’ll still use it up, but it might take a bit longer.
An Abundance of Katherines by John Green:
I almost got a book by Elle and Blair Fowler, two YouTubers that I follow, but I know I love John Green, and I don’t i know how well they can write! Books were on 4-for-3 at Chapters a couple weeks ago, so my BFF, BF, and I all got a book (or two mangas, in my BF’s case) for a bit of a discount. I’ve already read The Fault in Our Stars, and Looking for Alaska, but I haven’t got around to this one yet, so now I have it whenever I want to start!
Targaryen House Touque:
Some of the Game of Thrones stuff was on a pretty hardcore sale at Chapters, with this hat being 75% off… so less than $4! I love the Targaryen’s and Game of Thrones in general. I hope I will wear the hat, but for $4, it really won’t be the end of the world if I never do!
Bandalettes (two pairs):
Alright, these are pretty brilliant. I’ve worn them once on Father’s Day, when my family took a walk instead of driving to the restaurant for dinner. These stop chaffing, or when your thighs rub together. Not everyone gets this, but I do, and the internet has lead me to believe that lots of other girls do too. Instead of trying to smear yourself with deodorant or baby powder, or where a pair of shorts under your skirts, these thin, cute bands of lace sit around your upper thigh and protect them without adding bulk. Plus, if they show, its just a cute bit of lace.  I spent just over $30 for two pairs including shipping to Canada. If you suffer from the same issues, I would strongly suggest trying these out:
Lots of tea:
As you can see from the picture, I did indeed buy a lot of different teas.
I got the Matcha from DavidsTea, because I have been obsessed with matcha flavoured candies lately, and I thought I should try the actual sourse. This was pretty expensive, but since matcha is a powdered tea, not a steeped tea, its super versatile. You can make it hot, cold, straight in milk. The next thing I want to try is matcha in chocolate milk, though I’m guessing the colour would be horrible!
I bought the Stash Chamomile tea because a) I love chamomile tea, b) there wasn’t any in my house, and c) sometimes I just can’t sleep, and this has worked for me in the past, whereas warm milk never really has. Tis very tasty!
Four O’Cloc Peppermint tea: basically, I just love peppermint tea, and it’s fantastic for hotter weather, since it’s cooling whether you brew it normally and drink it hot or make it strong and drink it over ice.
Yama Moto Yama Genmai-cha: there are some Japanese and Chinese restaurants that serve this really weird green tea for free in their restaurants, and I’ve become so accustomed to it that I actually really like it and even get cravings for it sometimes. I finally asked what it was one day, and it was basically this, which is a green tea which is mixed with roasted brown rice.  (Interesting fact: thjs tea came about because some Japanese people were too poor for pure tea, so they mixed it with rice to make it last longer. Later, this became very popular for it’s odd and yummy flavour!)
The Book of Me: A Do-It-Yourself Memoir:
I’ve pretty much always loved stuff like surveys and tags where you fill in information about yourself, and so this book is such a cool idea to me. Basically, it tries to cover your whole life and gets your to write about everything from facts like when and where you were born, to random information you can find about your earliest childhood, through to your adult life, love, and marriage, and stuff I haven’t got anywhere near yet. It should be fun to fill out for a long time. Because I’m kinda a dork like that.
Bright Pink and Black platform Sandals:
You might recognize these as the platforms from my last post. Obviously, I chose these ones! I went back a couple days later to try them on, and they seemed comfy and cute, and my boyfriend offered to pay about 2/3 of the price, so I was pretty sold… And they’re so cute!! I’ve word them once since just to the library and around the mall for an hour or so. In the first 15 min, I almost fell off the platform twice, but after that, I was perfectly fine. My feet slide forward a little too much, but the heel is practically not there, and the chunky platform wasn’t noticeably heavy. One of the straps bit into my big toes a bit, but beyond that I’m still pretty happy with them!
Thanks for reading! Don’t forget to follow and leave me your comments! =)
