September Favourites

September has always been my favourite month when I was younger. Mainly because it’s the month of my birthday. But as I grow older, September is not really an anticipation anymore (cries). Nevertheless, I still love September. Because September is when autumn rotates itself and makes an appearance yet again. Now if people ask me for my favourite season, I’d easily tell them it’s autumn! I think autumn is perfect – it’s not too hot and not too cold. It makes you want to get cosy under the duvet but not lazy enough to make you get out of the bed. Also, the surrounding is much more picturesque and just oh-so-lovely.

Anyway, these were the things that I’ve liked and fond of last month:

  • Cadbury’s Dairy Milk Whole Nut. I’ve been having an emotional time early last month, and this chocolate bar was the only thing that managed to give me a little boost of happiness. Once upon a time ago, I was depressed because I thought I was severely allergic to this.ย  Turned out that I am not severely allergic to it, but I still have to control myself over this goodness – well, if I don’t want nasty spots on my face that is. Thankfully sometimes, I minded more about my feelings rather than how I look.

  • I love mints, but this Leone mints that I bought from Caffรจ Nero was not like any other mints that I’ve tried. I think it’s the texture (sort of reminds me of macarons). Also, I’ve shared it with a lot of people and still, this little box lasted longer than I thought it would.

  • I think I’ve applied this NYX lip matte (in Rome) almost everyday in the last month. I love how creamy and easily to apply it is! Anyone else is in love with NYX lip matte?

  • Stripes, stripes and more stripes clothing. I don’t think I have enough in my wardrobe! I even had to stop taking OOTD pictures if I worn any of these stripes clothing – because of how often I recycled them as my casual outfit in the past month.


  • Malay novels. I just wanted to say that the two in the picture above were written byย Ania Malna, whom I haven’t known for a long time but a dear friend (we’ve been talking on Twitter and I didn’t know she’s an author until I added her on Instagram). I’m quite proud to say that I could still understand everything even though there were words that I couldn’t remember the meaning of them, but reading Malay novels mean it’s my chance to sharpen my mother tongue.

Thank you for reading this post.
May you have happy thoughts always,

    Chocolate is always a good thing though I like the marvelous creations with the jelly and popping candy in! Definitely reccomend that one. I haven’t actually tried NYX lipstricks before but I think I may have to now go and check them out! Great post x

      Yes, you should and I hope you’d like them as much as I do ๐Ÿ™‚ xx

    Love the vintage-esque packaging of the Leone mints! Gives me all the nostalgic feelings… ๐Ÿ˜‰ That NYX lipcolour looks gorgeous and very September/autumnal appropiate. And no one can go wrong with some stripes!

      Yes, I think that’s the reason why I bought it really! I’m a sucker for retro looking things too ๐Ÿ˜‰
      Rome (the shade) really is gorgeous for this autumn season indeed.
      And no, one can go wrong with more stripes! Hehe xx

    Dairy Milk will forever be my favourite thing, the caramel one is my weakness!

    • captaineverland October 12, 2017 / 5:34 pm

      I’m not a big fan of caramel in chocolate but if you like it, then so be it! ๐Ÿ™‚ x

      Exactly! Thank you for your comment ๐Ÿ™‚ x
