5 favourites – May

May has come to an end, and the first month of summer starts tomorrow, also known as the month of exams (at least in my case) or simply June. Even though I’m not looking forward to my exams, I’m at least going to study in some nice and improved surroundings. I didn’t move, but it feels a bit like it; I got a new kitchen this week, moved some stuff around and I’m getting rid of some stuff that made my place look and feel crouded. I even got myself a little vanity type space. Anyhow, before we jump into June, here’s some of my favourite things from the month of May.


MAC lipstick in Steam Heat: I almost didn’t buy this lipstick, because I’m trying to save some money for my summer holiday, but I couldn’t resist the pretty packaging. Luckily, not only the packaging is pretty, so is the actual lipstick. It’s such a gorgeous red shade, and I’ve been wearing it a lot this past month.

Tangleteezer 1

Tangle Teezer: My hair brush broke a while back, so my mum told me to get a Tangle Teezer. I’d obviously heard about them before and that they’re supposed to be really good, so I tried my mum’s, and I’ve never brushed out my hair so easily before. If you have difficulties brushing out your hair, and you don’t already own one of these, go get one!


Stegosaurus necklace: This is actual not only a monthly favourite; this is my absolute favourite necklace. My mum bought the pendant for me at the American Museum of Natural History in New York in October 2013, and then I went and bought a necklace for it. This has been one of my most worn necklaces ever since I got it, and this past month I haven’t worn many other necklaces.


Pride and Prejudice (TV mini-series): When I was ill earlier this month I watched the whole Pride and Prejudice BBC mini-series in one day. It wasn’t my first time watching it, and even though I find some of the scenes a bit lengthy, I still enjoyed it a lot. I just think it’s a lovely story. Btw, I definitely prefer this mini-series over the film with Keira Knightly as Elizabeth Bennet.

Heroes – Måns Zelmerlöw: First of all, I have to mention that I’m a huge Eurovision Song Contest fan, and even though Denmark didn’t make it through to the finals this year, I still enjoyed watching both semi-finals and of course the big final. Second of all, I know people are saying that the Scandinavian countries are always voting for each other, but this year Sweden just had the best song, so I had to vote for them:) Måns Zelmerlöw performed this amazing song to perfection, and if you haven’t watched his performance already, you can watch right here.

Pink rhinestone


This is what my nails looked like last week. I used to wear this nail polish (it’s an old Max Factor one) all the time, but I hadn’t worn it in a while. I decided to add a little rhinestone on the nails on my middle fingers for a little extra something. Btw, sorry for the messy application; I tried to clean up afterwards.

A pop of turquoise


Here’s the make-up I wore with this outfit. I went for a bronzy eye with a pop of turquoise on the water line (to match the sweatshirt) and a nude lip.

(Eye make-up: base – Maybelline Color Tattoo in On and on Bronze (35), eye shadows – Too Faced Chocolate Bar Eye Shadow Collection (shades: Milk Chocolate + White Chocolate), mascara – Maybelline The Falsies Volum’ Express, eyeliner – Mua Intense Glitter eyeliner in Turquoise. Lips: MAC Oxblood lipstick)

Spring greys


Here’s what I wore Wednesday April 22. The day I wore this outfit was another sunny day. I really like how this outfit turned out. I might have mentioned it before, but I love grey and I think these different grey items and patterns look great together.

(Trousers + shirt – H&M, sweatshirt – Monki – sneakers – Converse)

Wash & Dry


When MAC came out with this years summer collection I just had to get my hands on one of the lipsticks. The collection is called Wash & Dry, and I bought one of the limited edition lipstick shades. It’s called Steam Heat and is a gorgeous yellow based red with a satin finish, and I absolutely love it! It has become my new favourite red lipstick, and it’s the perfect red for spring and summer.

Dino make-up


Here’s the make-up I wore with this outfit. A simple look, but with a touch of colour on the lips and on the water line.

(Eye make-up: base – MAC Pro Longwear Paint Pot in Painterly, eye shadows – MUA Ever After matte eye shadow palette (shade: Bare + Fade) + Sleek Storm eye shadow palette (shade: Snow Storm) + MAC Mineralize Skin Finish in Lightscapade on browbone, mascara – Maybelline The Falsies Volum’ Express, eyeliner – MUA Intense Glitter eyeliner in Jade Jewel. Lips: Rimmel Provocalips Lip Colour in 200 I’ll Call You)

Dino Tuesday


Here’s what I wore Tuesday April 21. The Danish weather has been fluctuating a lot lately, but the day I wore this outfit was a lovely, sunny day. I loved wearing my boyfriend jeans again, and I think they look great paired with this cute dino sweatshirt.

(Jeans – Topshop, sweatshirt – H&M, shoes – Shoe Biz Copenhagen)

Soft brown and hot pink


Here’s the make-up I wore Thursday April 16. I didn’t have time to take outfit pictures that day, but I snapped a quick picture of my make-up. I think it’s a very pretty and wearable look.

(Eye make-up: base – MAC Pro Longwear Paint Pot in Painterly, eye shadows – MUA Ever After matte eye shadow palette (shade: Bare) + Too Faced Chocolate Bar Eye Shadow Collection (shades: Milk Chocolate + Semi-Sweet + White Chocolate + Champagne Truffle), mascara – Maybelline The Falsies Volum’ Express, eyeliner – MUA Intense Colour eyeliner in Snow White. Lips: MAC No Faux Pas lipstick)

Cherry cheese cake


My youngest sister gave me this NYX Butter Gloss when she came home from a school trip to Berlin. It’s my first NYX product, and I’ve been wanting to try a Butter Gloss for a long time. It’s in the colour Cherry Cheese Cake, and it’s a very pretty peachy orange shade. I’m wearing it for the first time today, and so far I’m really happy with this product. It has a nice pigmentation, and I think it’s very comfortable on the lips. For a gloss it lasts a very decent amount of time as well. The only thing I don’t like about this gloss is the scent which is too sweet for my taste, but luckily it goes away almost instantly after you’ve applied it to your lips.
