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.

5 favourites – October

We are approaching the last official month of autumn, and the Danish weather has definitely been autumnal lately. Even wintery as it snowed last weekend. We sure are getting closer to December and Christmas, and Christmassy things have started to show up at most stores. You can probably imagine how excited I am! I have already started to collect some bits for my upcoming Christmas clothing haul. But we still have one month to go, and before November begins, let’s talk about some October favourites.

Beige og brun ternede støvler m. chunky hæl - Monki

Checked boots: I’m so happy that I bought these checked boots from Monki. They are so comfortable, and they’re are in the perfect autumn colours. I’ve already worn them quite a bit, but I know that I’ll get a lot more use out of them.

L’Oréal Paradise Extatic mascara: When I did my first impressions post on this mascara, I mentioned how this is the best mascara I’ve tried other than my favourite one, Maybelline The Falsies. I’ve worn this mascara all month, and I still really enjoy using it.

Laura Geller highlighter duo 1

Laura Geller baked highlighter in French Vanilla (the shade on the left): I’ve heard lots of Youtubers talk about this highlighter. I usually go for a more intense highlighter, but French Vanilla is such a gorgeous more natural highlighter that still gives your skin the most beautiful glow.

elf

Elf (film): I’ve watched so many films this past month, and a lot of them I hadn’t watched before. I loved most of the films I watched, but I couldn’t feature all them in this post, so I narrowed them down to my two favourites. The first one is a classic Christmas film; Elf. Considered how much I love Christmas, it’s strange that I hadn’t watched this one until earlier this month. I guess I hadn’t watched it because I don’t particularly like Will Ferrell, but there’s a reason why Elf is a classic. I loved it, and I’ll definitely rewatch it.

diehard

Die Hard (film): My other favourite film I’ve watched this past month is another (Christmas) classic. And again, I see why this is a classic. It’s simply a great action film. I also watched the second one, and I’m really looking forward to watch the rest of this film series.

5 favourites – June

Another month has come to an end and for me it was the last month of work before the summer holidays. The warm summer weather has returned, and the timing is perfect. I’ll be spending most of July with my family in my parents’ summer house/cottage, so I won’t be blogging everyday, but I’ll still try to blog as much as possible. Anyways, I had a lot of favourites in June, but I managed to pick five, so here they are.

Sort oversized denimjakke m. Pluto-mønster - H&M

Oversized denim jacket with Pluto print: I’m sure, I’ve expressed my love for everything Disney more than once, and this denim jacket is no exception. Denim jackets are my go-to outerwear in the summer, and this one is so cute and it makes every outfit a little more fun and quirky.

DSC_5345

Jeffree Star Velour liquid lipstick in Anna Nicole: I rarely feature lip products in my favourites posts, because I wear and love so many different ones, but I had to mention this gorgeous bright orangy-red shade from my favourite liquid lipstick brand. It’s the perfect summer red.

jurassic-world-fallen-kingdom_r9ur2r

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom (film): Having a huge dinosaur obsession, I was very excited about the newest addition to the Jurassic series, and I was not disappointed. It was a bit darker and creepier than the previous films, but I really liked that. Oh, and the dinosaurs were awesome.

That-70s-show-800x400

That ’70s Show (TV series): My dad has talked about this TV series for years, and when I discovered that all 8 season were on Netflix, I decided to give it a go. I’m very inspired by ’70s fashion and home decor, so I knew I would love those parts of the series, but as it turns out, I love everything else as well.

Excuse Me – Salvador Sobral (album): I’ve featured two Salvador Sobral songs in previous 5 favourites posts, and I finally bought his debut album from 2016. I’ve been listening to this album on repeat throughout the entire month of June; it’s so beautiful! The song above is one of my favourites from the album, and I would recommend that you give it a listen.

Film style icon: Tony Manero

It’s been quite a while since I last made a film style icon post. So far, I’ve only featured stylish film women (apart from the honorable mention of Duckie Dale), but I thought it was time to talk about a super stylish male film character. You might have noticed my love for ’70s fashion, and no one is more stylish than John Travolta’s Tony Manero in Saturday Night Fever (1977).

The iconic opening scene of the film features Tony Manero strutting down the street in an awesome black and red outfit. I love the huge shirt collars of the ’70s and of course the flared trousers.

snf_tonys-red-jacketSaturday-Night-Fever_John-Travolta_disco-shirt_pants-zip_bmp11367_2

This pink outfit is my absolute favourite! I want those pink trousers so bad! The silky shirt is beautiful too, and I love that he’s wearing a dark red leather jacket with the look.

And of course, I had to feature Tony’s iconic white suit. I would love a suit similar to this one. I don’t know if I could pull off the white, but Tony sure does.

5 favourites – March

The first month of spring (though the weather wasn’t spring-like at all) has come to an end. At the moment, I’m enjoying my easter holiday, but most of March was all about work for me. I’m super excited about April, because I’m moving into a new apartment in two weeks! I can’t wait to get more space and to decorate my new home. But before welcoming April, let’s say goodbye to March with some favourites.

Støvet khakigrønne fløjlsbukser m. vide - second hand

Flared corduroy trousers vol. 2: My corduroy obsession is still going strong. These trousers that I found in the men’s section at a second hand store are just perfect, and I’ve worn them so much.

Blommefarvet pelset beret

Faux fur beret: My beret collection is also growing, and the newest addition has been my go-to hat this past month. I love the plum colour and the fact that it’s fluffy. It’s such a nice accessory.

Troll Beads armbånd

Troll Beads bangle: When I got my master’s degree in late January, my parents gave me this beautiful Troll Beads bangle + the two black glass beads. My sister and her boyfriend gave me the silver bead (+ another glass bead). I love the ability to costumise your jewellery, and I’m really looking forward to extending my Troll Beads collection.

moana-intro

Moana (film): I finally got to watch Moana, and I loved it. I find it to be a very aesthetically pleasing film, and the songs are great!

CHCHdotcom_Sliders_WhiteCollar

White Collar (Tv series): I can’t believe it took me so long to finally start watching this TV series. I was hooked from pilot episode; I love the characters and especially the relationship between Neal and Peter, and I can’t wait to watch the rest of the series.

5 favourites – October

October has come to an end which means that in only one month it’ll finally be December. October was a very busy month for me; I’ve been working hard on my master’s thesis and I also went on a choir trip to Helsinki. In November my main focus will definitely be my thesis, and I’m pretty sure that December will be here in no time then. But first, here are some of my favourite things from the month of October.

Bordeauxrøde 'herre'sko - Duffy

Burgundy Oxford style shoes by Duffy: I bought these shoes years ago, but I hadn’t really worn them much. I started wearing them more this year, and this past month I’ve been wearing them a lot. I love the dark burgundy colour and the chunky soles.

Belsac taske (second hand)

Warm beige shoulder bag by Belsac: I bought this bag at a second hand store in July, and I decided to bring it with my to Helsinki earlier this month. It was the perfect sized bag for a 5 day trip, and as I’ve mentioned before I love the colour and shape of it.

DSC_3702

Juvia’s Place The Saharan eye shadow palette: I expressed my love for this palette in my last post. It’s so gorgeous, and I’m really looking forward to play around with it even more.

FunnyGirl-W

Funny Girl (film): I’d been wanting to watch this film for ages, and I finally got to this month. I started watching it in Helsinki with one of the girls from the choir, and then we watched the rest in Helsinki and Riga airport respectively on our way back home. I already new and loved the music, and Barbra Streissand and Omar Sharif did such an amazing job portraying Fanny Brice and Nick Arnstein.

A.C. Perch Afternoon te

A. C. Perch Afternoon blend tea: When my mum visisted me in the beginning of October, we went to a beautiful tea house and had delicious tea, scones, and petit fours. We tried two different types of tea and our favourite was the Afternoon blend which we purchased a bag of each to take home, so I’ve been drinking a lot of it since.

5 favourites – August

I can’t believe that the last summer month will be over by tomorrow. We have had varied weather in Denmark this past month, but with a nice summer day here and there. I don’t mind that autumn is approaching though; that just means that we are getting closer to December and Christmas! But we still have a couple of autumn months to go through, and also a couple more favourites posts, so let’s start with some August favourites.

Lyseblå oversized denim jakke - H&M

Denim jacket: I’ve been loving this denim jacket since I started wearing it in the end of July. It goes with pretty much any outfit, and it’s been the perfect jacket for the warmer days we’ve had this past month.

Gosh neglelak i Sweet Rose

Gosh nail varnish (shade: 589 Sweet Rose): In the beginning of the month I wore this pink nail varnish two weeks in a row, and I absolutely loved it. I also wore pink nails another week this month, so I guess I’ve just been really into pink nails.

Bodum Travel Mug

Bodum travel mug: My birthday was in August and one of the things I got for my birthday was this travel mug. I had done some research on travel mugs (I knew I was going to spend a lot of time at uni writing my thesis), and this one was supposed to be one of the best ones, and it really is. It’s not leaking the slightest and it keeps the coffee warm for ages.

Newgirl

New Girl (TV series): I had thought about watching New Girl for a while, and I finally decided to give it a go in the beginning of the month, and I got hooked instantly. I finished the fifth season yesterday, and I’m really sad that there are no more seasons on Netflix at the moment. I don’t even know how to begin describing this show, but it’s so sweet and funny, and I absolutely love the characters. Every single one of them. So if you haven’t watched New Girl and you love sit coms, you should definitely give it shot.

It’s Time – Michael Bublé (album): Another birthday present I’ve been loving this month is this Michael Bublé album. I’ve been listening to it countless times, and it just makes me happy. I love all the songs on the album, and here’s just one of my favourites.
