Mixed Zalando haul

A little while ago I purchased a mix of things from Zalando, and I’m finally getting around to share them with you.

Gul og blå ternet slip kjole m. sorte blonder og slids - Even&Odd

I bought this slip dress in a Clueless-ish print from Even&Odd. I don’t usually go for this type of dress, but I thought it would be fun to style.

Brun og cremefarvet argyle cropped sweater - PULL&BEARHvid T-shirt m. Fantasia Mickey Mouse - PULL&BEAR

I purchased to pieces from PULL&BEAR, which is a brand I haven’t tried before. When you live in a country that has cold weather most of the year, you can never have to many jumpers, and I really liked this argyle one. And you might have noticed that I have a serious weakness for everything Disney, which explains why I got the Mickey Mouse T-shirt.

Hvid Jaws T-shirt - New Look

I’ve been wanting a Jaws T-shirt for so long, and when I saw this one from New Look, I didn’t hesitate to buy it. I love Jaws if you haven’t guessed.

Sort fake læder baker boy hat - TopshopSort faux fur taske med tortoise shell hank - TopshopHvide 'flettede' pumps - Topshop

Lastly, I bought a hat, a bag, and a pair of shoes from Topshop, which are some of the things Topshop does best in my opinion. These are all items I’d had in my saved items for quite a while, and when I saw that they were all on sale, I finally purchased them. I’m so excited to style these items.

Collective drugstore haul: Essence, Wet n Wild, Revolution and more

DSC_7089DSC_7088

I’ve been buying a few drugstore products here and there lately, so I thought I would do a collective drugstore haul. I’ve heard such good things about the Wet n Wild Photofocus foundation and the Revolution Conceal & Define Full Coverage concealer, so I thought I would try those out. I’ll been doing first impressions posts on both products. I bought the Maybelline Face Studio Pore Minimizing primer hoping it would be a dupe for the Benefit Porefessional primer. I did a comparison of the two, which I’ll do a post on very soon. As you might have noticed, I don’t ususally fill in my brows, but I thought I would give the e.l.f. Brow Pencil a try. This doesn’t necessarily mean that I’m going to fill in my brows on a daily basis, I just wanted to try it out. Lastly, I’ve purchased three products from Essence. I really like a lot of Essence products, so I’m excited to try these out. I bought the Essence Matt Touch blush (shade: 10 Peach Me Up!), the Essence Camoflage+ Matt concealer (shade: 10 Light Rose), and then I was very intrigued by three new eyeshadow palettes. I loved the colour scheme of all three of them, but I decided to try out one first, and if I like it, I might get the other ones. The palette I chose is called G’Day Sydney, and it’s a neutral palette with some pops of green. I’ve tested out an Essence eyeshadow palette before, which I wasn’t impressed by (check out my first impressions here), but the shades in this palette swatched beautifully, so I’m excited to see if they’re any better.

Huge second hand haul: clothes

I’ve been doing a lot of second hand shopping lately, and I thought I would share my finds with you. I’m going to do a two part haul; this one is all about the clothes, and then I’m going to do a separate post on the accessories.

Brun, navy og grøn ternet oversized blazer - second hand

I’ve been looking for an oversized blazer, and this one is perfect! I love the colours and pattern, and the quality is great.

Sort velour jakke med blomstermønster i rød, lilla, grøn og guldglimmer - second hand

This jacket is a mix of things I love; velvet, beautiful colours, and shoulder pads.

Hvid og sort zebraprint fleece jakke - second hand

This is one of those very tacky items that I’m not quite sure if I love or not, but I buy them anyways, because I love a styling challenge, and I often end up really liking those items.

Rød argyle sweater m. navy og gråt mønster - second hand

This red argyle jumper is so nice. It looks like it’s never been worn, and I love the colours.

Khakigrøn sweater m. beige mønster - second hand

I found this khaki green jumper the same day as I found the red argyle one, and I just loved the pattern.

Sort og beige sweater m. guld detaljer - second hand

And I’ve found more great jumpers recently. How nice is this one! Once again I love the pattern, and I also love the button detail. And the quality seems really nice too.

Navy og cremefarvet sweater m. turkis detaljer - second hand

This jumper is from the same brand as the previous one, and how incredible is the colour combination on this one! I’m really excited about all these jumpers.

Beige og cremefarvet rullekravetrøje - second hand

I also found this beige roll neck number, which looks like something a guy would wear in the early to mid 2000s, and I really don’t mind that.

Hvid kortærmet skjorte m. lyserødt, blåt og grønt mønster - second hand

I’ve also bought two button up blouses/shirts which are probably more appropriate for warmer weather, but I just couldn’t leave them behind, so I’ll save them in my closet and wear them in a few months. I love the colours and pattern of this one, and it has shoulder pads as well, which is always a plus in my book.

Navy kortærmet skjorte m. hvide og røde blomster - second hand

The other button up blouse I’ve purchased recently is the navy one with the cutest daisy print.

Lyseblå højtaljet denim nederdal - second hand

I more often find tops than I find bottoms at second hand stores, but this time around I did find a skirt and a pair of trousers/jeans. I’m always looking for the perfect denim skirt, and this one comes very close. It’s high waisted, it’s pretty much the perfect length, and the light wash gives it a strong ’80s vibe which I’m all about.

Beige slangeprint bukser - second hand

The pair of trousers (or I guess they’re jeans) that I’ve purchased and the last item in this part of the haul are these snake print ones. I’m really into animal print at the moment and these fit me perfectly, so I had to buy them. I guess they’re slightly tacky, but they remind me of Coyote Ugly and I love that film, so I might take some inspiration from there when styling these trousers.

Asos accessories + shoes haul

Here’s another January sales haul, I haven’t posted yet. It consists of accessories and one pair of shoes all from Asos.

I love berets, and I would love to have them in all colours, so I added these three to my collection; a navy one, a pink and blue checked one, and a lilac one.

DSC_6774

I’m really looking forward to spring. So much that I’ve already bought some new sunglasses. How fun and colourful are these three pairs! I have a feeling that the pink ones might become my favourites.

DSC_6781

Everyone, including me, are obsessed with hair clips, and I love these two pairs. I’ve already posted looks featuring both of these pairs of hair clips, and I’m not going to stop wearing them any time soon.

Lilla, lyserød, neutral slangeprint loafers - Asos

I’d had these snake print heeled loafers in my saved items for quite a while, and I’m so glad that I finally decided to get them. They feel a bit ’70s, which I obviously love, and I can’t wait to style these in a bunch of different ways.

MAC + Urban Decay haul

DSC_6722

I thought I would just do a quick little MAC and Urban Decay haul. I bought all of these products in the January sales apart from the MAC Cream Colour Base. The MAC Cream Colour Base in the shade Pearl was a Christmas present, and it’s a very nice cream highlighter. From MAC I also bought a travel size Strobe Cream (in the original shade Pinklite). It’s my first time trying MAC Strobe Cream, and I really like it. I’ve been using it together with primer, and it gives the skin a really nice glow. I also picked up a travel size MAC Fix+, a travel size Urban Decay All Nighter setting spray + a full size one; these are my favourite setting sprays. Lastly, I picked up the Urban Decay Naked Skin concealer (in the shade Fair Neutral), which I’ve been wanting to try out for ages, and so far I really like it.

5 favourites – January

The first month of 2019 is now over, and I can sum it up in two words: work and freezing. Yes, pretty much all I did this month was work (and get a lot of use out of a couple of my Christmas presents which is featured in this favourites post), and it’s been freezing cold outside in Denmark (it actually snowed quite a bit today). I only have six more work days and then I have a week off, so I’m really looking forward to that. But anyways, let’s talk about some favourites.

DSC_6420

Jeffree Star Cosmetics Androgyny eye shadow palette: It’s no secret that I love Jeffree Star Cosmetics, and even though this was Jeffree’s second palette release, I didn’t buy it until recently. I’m so glad I finally did though, because I love this palette. The colours are stunning, and the pigmentation is fantastic. I can’t wait to create more gorgeous eye looks with this palette.

dsc_6740

Milani Strobe Light Instant Glow Powder (shade: Afterglow): I have another make-up favourite this month, and it’s this gorgeous highlighter. The shade is perfect, and the pigmentation is perfect. It has been my go-to highlighter the past couple of weeks, and I’ll definitely continue to use this.

natkingcole

A Portrait of Nat King Cole (album): I love Nat King Cole. He’s my favourite jazz musician/crooner. My favourite record is a Nat King Cole one, and this CD which I found at a second hand store between Christmas and New Year’s is also a favourite of mine. I’ve been listening to this CD on repeat this past month, and I’ll probably continue to do so.

thesims4seasons

The Sims 4 Seasons (computer game): I finally got this expansion pack (I got it for Christmas), so I’ve been playing The Sims 4 whenever I had the time. I’ve been playing The Sims games for the past 15 years or so, and I still absolutely love it.

chromecast

Google Chromecast: I don’t have any TV channels, so until this month I’ve been watching Netflix on my iPad, which is fine, but it’s nice to finally be able to watch TV series and films on a slightly bigger screen. I’ve also enjoyed watching YouTube videos on my TV though I still mostly watch those on my iPad (my iPad is my portable TV).

BeautyBay sale haul

dsc_6731

In the beginning of January, BeautyBay had a sale, so I purchased a few things; mainly eyeshadows and a single highlighter.

dsc_6758

I purchased two Juvia’s Place eyeshadow palettes, the first one being The Magic Mini palette. It’s the same as The Magic palette, the eyeshadow pans are just smaller, which I don’t mind at all. I haven’t played with this palette yet, but look how gorgeous the colours are! I’ve had The Saharan palette by Juvia’s Place for a while, and it’s so good, so I expect this palette to be just as good.

dsc_6750

I also picked up The Douce palette by Juvia’s Place. This one I have used once, and I have to say that I was a little disappointed in the pigmentation of the matte peachy pink shade called Créme, but the other shades I tried were very nice though.

dsc_6744

I’ve been wanting to try out the newer formulated eyeshadows from Wet n Wild for a while, so I purchased the Rosé in the Air palette. I’ve used this one twice so far, and I’m impressed! The pigmentation is great and they blend out very nicely. This is going to be the perfect travelling palette if I’m going away for a weekend or a few days in general.

dsc_6734

I absolutely love the Stila Magnificant Metals Glitter & Glow liquid eyeshadows, but they are quite expensive, so I only want to buy them on sale. Lucky for me, they were in the BeautyBay sale, so I purchased the shades Diamond Dust and Rose Gold Retro, and they are so pretty!

dsc_6740

The highlighter, I bought, is the Milani Strobe Light Instant Glow Powder in the shade Afterglow. I just thought it looked really pretty, and it is. I’m loving it so far.
