5 favourites – December

Christmas is over, tonight it’s New Year’s Eve, and at midnight a new year begins. 2019. How time flies! 2018 was a very eventful year for me. I got my master’s degree, I got my first ‘adult’ job (in only three days it’ll be my one year work anniversary), and I also moved into my first apartment. All in all, 2018 was a good year, and I’m excited to see what 2019 has to offer. But first I want to wish you all a happy and safe new year, and then let’s say goodbye to 2018 with some December favourites.

Candy cane earrings: Based on my recent outfit posts, you have probably noticed that I’m very serious about festive dressing. I love my Christmas jumpers, and I love christmassy accessories to go with them. My favourite festive earrings have been these cute candy cane ones from the UK wepshop Lisa Angel.

Rød velour scrunchie

Red velvet scrunchie: I also like my hair to be festive, and this schruncie has been my go-to hair accessory. I’ll definitely continue to wear this in the new year as well.

The Body Shop Peppermint Candy Cane shower gel

The Body Shop Peppermint Candy Cane shower gel: I love the scent of peppermint and candy canes, and this shower gel smells incredible in my opinion. I’ve been using it nonstop throughout December, and it’s another favourite that I’ll continue to use in the new year.

Suits

Suits (TV series): Suits has been on the top of my ‘must watch’ list for a long time, and when I was ill with the flu in the beginning of December, I decided to finally start watching it. I’m almost done with season 3, and I can’t wait to watch more. It’s such a great show with handsome male leads:)

My first Christmas tree: I got my very first Christmas tree this year, and you have no idea how much I’ve enjoyed decorating it and looking at it. I got some decorations from my grandfather and I’ve also bought some at different second hand stores, so I had a quite old fashioned Christmas tree, which is right up my alley.

Glittery goodness

Here’s the make-up I wore with this outfit. This is my go-to neutral but glittery eye make-up look. It’s super simple and quick to do, and it looks great with any lip colour.

Christmas family get-together

Here’s what I wore Wednesday December 26. My parents hosted a Christmas family get-together, so I decided to wear something christmassy but still dressy, and I love how this outfit turned out. I bought the skirt second hand a little while ago, and I got the feeling that I’m going to get a lot of wear out of it.

Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas! I hope you’re all having a lovely Christmas or whatever you may be celebrating. In Denmark we celebrate Christmas on Christmas Eve, and this is what I wore last night. I thought this green dress was perfect for the occation, but sadly I tore a hole in it (without noticing it until late in the evening), so it’ll be my first and last time wearing this dress.
