November Favorites

Hello, everyone! I know I haven’t been posting a lot lately, it’s just that I haven’t been in the best mood. For the third time since March, I feel trapped and helpless being in the confines of our house, but I don’t have a choice but to stay indoors because that virus is still out there and it hasn’t been getting any better in my country.

I haven’t bought any books until the last week of November because I was saving money for the online Manila International Book Fair only to be disappointed because most of the books are already out of stock, so I just bought three books from one of the Facebook book shops that I’ve transacted with a couple of months ago. I also bought other stuff during the 11.11 sale on Shopee and Lazada! And this post is about that. Today, I am going to share my favorite non-bookish purchases in this month:image

  • Zara dress
  • The Stitchery stitched scrunchies
  • Celeste Cardcaptor Sakura-inspired necklace
  • Celeste Key Heart necklace
  • Happeee Thoughts Currently Reading plate
  • Happeee Thoughts customized plate (dustypromises)

The name plate, Cardcaptor Sakura pin, and chibi pin are freebies!

I am so happy with these purchases because they are absolutely adorable! I also can’t wait to get out of the house and be able to go places so I can wear my necklaces and dress. I am positive that next year everything will ease out and slowly go back to normal.

How about you? What is your favorite November purchase?

I’ve been meaning to write something here, it’s just that I can’t find the time and I haven’t been in a “writing mood” lately. But I have some free time right now, so here it is! ♡

Honestly, I can’t even believe it’s been that long since I started this little corner of mine in the internet. I was young — 15 years old! — and all I wanted was for someone to listen to me and a place where I could vent out all of my teenage angst. I found out about blogging, did a couple of research, registered for so many platforms until I settled down on Tumblr where I met so many people who share the same sentiments as me. There I talked about daily life, my thoughts on random things, etc. Dustypromises have been a place where I find comfort throughout the years. Continue reading
