’70s goodness

Here’s what I wore Wednesday November 11. This one of a kind ’70s dress is probably one of my favourite vintage finds (well, it was actually my mum who found it), and I had yet to style it with my brown platform knee high boots, so that’s exactly what I did here, and I love it! This whole orange – brown – purple colour combo is just amazing.

Post Christmas/January sale make-up haul

This is the third post Christmas/January sale haul in line, and this one is a collective make-up haul. I still have a couple more clothing sale hauls to share with you, so stay tuned for those. But for now, let’s talk make-up.

The item I was most excited to find on sale in late December (and to find at all to be honest) was this Clinique Jet Set Travel Ready Eyes and Cheeks set. I’ve been wanting to try the Clinique Cheek Pop blush pops for years, but they pretty much disappeared from the Danish market, but then I came across this set containing two blushers and a mascara, and I was a happy girl. I would have paid the full prize for this set, but it was 50% off I think, so it was super affordable, which made things even better. The two blush shades are 08 Melon Pop and 15 Pansy Pop, and they’re super pretty. The mascara is the Lash Power mascara in a travel size.

And my luck didn’t stop there. I also found the Clinique Cheek Pop palette in Warm Up on sale on Asos’ website. This palette contains the shades Nude Pop, Ginger Pop, and Cola Pop. Super pretty shades as well.

Another product I’ve been wanting to try for a while is the Dior Backstage Glow Face Palette in 001 Universal, so I was really happy when I found it on sale in a set that also contained the Dior Addict Lip Glow in 001 Pink. The set also came in a Dior make-up bag. I’ve used all the shades in the palette apart from the pink one, and they’re stunning. The lip glow is lovely too.

I usually don’t really buy from luxury make-up brands, but when they’re on sale, it’s a different story. I mean, how beautiful is this Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Volupté Shine Oil-In-Stick Ready to Care & Shine lip colour! It’s in the shade 12 Corail Dolman, and it’s a collector 2020 lipstick. I don’t care much about that fact; I just loved the shade and the packaging.

Let’s move on to a couple of limited edition MAC lippies. First off, I purchased two more lip products from the Teyana Taylor collection; the lip pencil in Chestnut (dark brown) and the lipglass in 10’s Across the Board (dark red). I also found a lipstick and a lipglass from the Aaliyah collection. The lipstick is called Street Thing and the lipglass is called 1 In A Million. These are colours that I probably won’t wear often, but I didn’t have any products from the Aaliyah collection and I loved the dark red packaging.

Fenty Beauty killed it with the 2020 holiday sets (see which other sets I bought earlier on here). This is the Two Lil Stunnas – Gift Duo which comes with two mini Stunna Lip Paints in limited edition shades; Underrated and Unmatched. Both shades are beautiful.

This is another little lip set that I found interesting. It’s the Huda Beauty Kiss – Gift Set that consists of two mini Silk Balms in the shades Sugar and Spice (both shades are limited edition). They’re super shimmery, which is different for a lip balm, I guess, but I have to say that I really enjoy these. You could probably use them as gloss on top of a lipstick or lip liner, but I just wear them as lip balm on days where I don’t wear make-up.

Okay, we’re almost done. I found these KVD Vegan Beauty Everlasting lip liners on sale (of course), and I liked the unusual colours, so I thought I would give them a try. I puchased the shades (from top to bottom) Lemmy, Coven, and Skully. I’m excited to see if they’re any good.

And last but not least, I purchased this 3 eye brush set from Sephora Collection. The brushes came with a little make-up bag, and they have a very cute print on them, and they’re actually quite nice.

Focus, please

Here’s the make-up I wore with this outfit. I couldn’t get my camera to focus on my eyeshadow properly, but I thought that I would still share the look with you, because I think it turned out really pretty.

All it takes

No such thing as too many Mickeys

Here’s what I wore Friday November 6. I had to wear this jumper and these jeans together, and go all out with the Mickey Mouse theme, and I love it! Btw, Mickey Mouse also appears on my sneakers and on the T-shirt and socks I wore. There’s no such thing as too many Mickeys if you ask me (clearly).

Asos post Christmas/January sale haul

It’s time for the second post Christmas/January sale haul, and these are the items I got from Asos.

Let’s get the Christmas items out of the way. I always like to purchase Christmas clothing on sale, and I bought the following three items from Asos: gingerbread men leggings from Monki (I have the matching T-shirt), blue cropped jumper with Christmas tree print from Asos’ own brand, and a Friends Christmas themed T-shirt also from Asos’ own brand.

I only purchased one more piece of clothing, and it’s this Elton John T-shirt from the brand Vintage Supply. I love Elton John’s music and his style!

And now on to shoes. As you will see, I’ve purchased many pairs of shoes, but this first pair might be my favourite. These shoes are the kind of shoes that you either love or hate, and I love them! They’re from Asos’ own brand (and so are the rest of the items in this haul apart from one pair of shoes), and I love the zipper detail and the chunky soles.

I’ve been seeing different two-toned boots around lately, and I just loved the burgundy and creamy white colour combo on this pair.

I thought these mules were so cute that I had to get them in two versions: satin pink with multicoloured rhinestones, and dark green croc with white rhinestones. When we’ll be able to go to parties again, I want to wear both of these pairs.

And speaking of mules, here are two more summery versions. I love the disco vibes of the silver pair, and I already own and love the turquoise version and the purple version of the Public Desire square sole mules, so I had to get the chocolate brown version as well.

And last, but not least, I’ve purchased two head accessories. You are probably tired of hearing about my obsession with the colour purple, but I mean, just look at that fluffy purple bucket hat. It’s so fun and goes perfectly with all my purple outfits. I also love zebra print and big hair clips, so my last purchase is just that; a big zebra print hair clip.

Intense and stunning

Here’s the make-up I wore with this outfit. That green metallic eyeshadow from The Magic Mini palette by Juvia’s Place is so intense and so stunning! I have to remember to use that palette more often.

(Base: primers – Wet n Wild Photofocus face primer matte + MAC Prep + Prime Natural Radiance Illuminating Base (shade: Radiant Yellow), foundation – Maybelline Dream Urban Cover foundation (shade: 100 Warm Ivory), concealer – L’Oréal Infaillible More Than Concealer (shade: 322 Ivory), powders – e.l.f.

Liquid amethyst
