5 favourites – March

I can’t believe that today is the last day of March! March has been a really busy month for me with a lot of uni work, but I also went on two amazing day trips (Cardiff of March 1 and Brighton on March 29), my dad paid me a visit, I hung out with great people and did A LOT of shopping (I still have a bunch of stuff to show you guys). Of course I also had some favourite items this month that I’m going to show you right now:)

Sort nederdel m. leopardmønster - H&M

Black skirt with velvety leopard print from H&M: As I told you in this post I’ve developed a growing love for this skirt which is not a type of skirt that I normally buy. As it turns out, this skirt has so many styling opportunities and I’ve been wearing it quite a lot the past month (e.g. here and here).


Real Techniques deluxe crease brush: If you are looking for affordable good quality make-up brushes I would definitely recommend Real Techniques. I’ve been loving this particular brush this month. It’s soft and fluffy and great for blending, especially in the crease which the name suggests. It does collect a lot of pigment from the eye shadow, so you might have to layer eye shadow if you want a darker look. I’m not a brush expert so this might be common for this type of brush, but this particular one sure is great for blending and I love it:)

Girls season 1

Girls – season 1: My mum gave me this when she was visiting me in February, but I didn’t watch it until the beginning of March. I’d heard about ‘Girls’ before, but didn’t really know what it was about, but I got hooked. It’s kind of a mix of Sex and the City and Bridget Jones’ Diary, but for twenty-something girls. At least I find it very entertaining, and I would love to watch the following seasons as well.

Comforting liquorice 3

Twinings Comforting Liquorice tea: I LOVE tea. Especially fruit tea and liquorice tea. Back in Denmark I always have a couple of boxes of Pickwick’s liquorice tea, so I was really happy to find this liquorice tea from Twinings. It tastes pretty much the same as the Pickwick one, but this one is supposedly comforting as well. I don’t know if that’s a fact, but I sure enjoy drinking this delicious liquorice tea.

Winter Hymns – Charlie Simpson: Over a year ago I linked you to a couple lovely songs by my favourite singer and songwriter Charlie Simpson, and oh my god he has done it again. You know that feeling you get when you listen to a song for the first time and just instantly love it; that’s the feeling I had the first time I listened to ‘Winter Hymns’. It doesn’t happen to me that often (and I listen to a lot of music), but Charlie has given me that feeling a couple of times before which just shows how amazingly talented he is. I can’t wait for him to release his next album.

Practice makes perfect


Here’s a closer look at the make-up I wore with this outfit. I’m still practising the whole liquid eyeliner thing and it looks far from perfect, but as the title says ‘practice makes perfect’, so I guess I just have to keep practising:)

Here’s what I wore Monday March 17. I love how a blazer can make a simple jeans and T-shirt outfit look a bit more put-together.

Feather effect


This is what the feather nail polish looks like on the nails. I kind of like it, but I will definitely wear another nail polish underneath in the future, because of the fact that it’s transparent. I think this one lasted a bit longer than the leather one, but maybe it’s just because it’s harder to see the chips when wearing this one compared to the black leather one.

Warm browns


Here’s another make-up look from a day (March 15) where I didn’t take any outfit pictures. I felt like playing around with brown shades that day and I think it turned out very well. It’s quite a warm look which I don’t wear very often, but I quite like it, so I’ll probably experiment with warmer browns some more in the future:)

(Eye make-up: eye shadows – The Body Shop Eye Colour 07 + e.l.f. Eye Manual palette, mascara – Maybelline New York The Falsies Volum’ Express. Lip tint: Rimmel London Lasting Finish 1000 Kisses 720 Forever Walnut)

Brown and nude


I wore this make-up Friday March 14. I don’t have any outfit pictures from that day, I just liked how my make-up turned out and I wanted to share it with you:)

Real Techniques


If you haven’t already heard of Real Techniques brushes it’s about time. It’s a range of really good and affordable make-up brushes made by the make-up artists and sisters Sam and Nic Chapman who you might (or might not) know from their Youtube-channel pixiwoo. I bought this starter set (for the eye area) about a month ago. The set contains (from left to right): Deluxe crease brush, Base shadow brush, Accent brush, Pixel-point eyeliner brush, and Brow brush. As you can see the brushes come in a multifunctional case which is very handy. So far I’ve only used the first three brushes, and I really love them. I believe the Pixel-point eyeliner brush is meant for gel liner, but I’m sure you can use it for other purposes as well. The same goes for the Brow brush. I don’t fill in my eyebrows, but I’m sure I’ll get use out of that brush at some point anyways. You can check out the Real Techniques webpage for more details about the different brushes.

Princessy pink

Here’s a closer look at the make-up that I wore with this outfit. I love a really girly (almost princessy) make-up and I think this look turned out very pretty. A little shimmer and glitter can make everything a bit more glamourous:)

(Eye make-up: eye shadows – Rimmel London Glam’eyes eye shadow palette 740 Fever + W7 Rock ‘N’ Roll eye shadow shimmer Rosie + black eye shadow from e.l.f. Eye Manual palette, mascara – Maybelline New York The Falsies Volum’ Express, eyeliner – The Body Shop 05 Eye Definer shade White. Lipstick – Rimmel London Moisture Renew Lipstick 320 Funtime Fuchsia)

High up


Here’s what I wore Thursday March 13. Casual and girly which is one of my favourite outfit combinations (you have probably noticed that by now). Btw, does anybody elses hair hurt at the end of the day when having it up in a high ponytail, or is it just me?
