5 favourites – July

July has come to an end, and what a lovely relaxing and hot month. I’m back home from my holiday, and I’m going back to work next week. I’m also back to blogging more regularly, and I have some great hauls and outfits to share with you. But first, here are my 5 favourites from the month of July.

Rød bucket bag - Topshop

Red bucket bag: Topshop did an amazing job with this bag. I love the colour and shape, and it holds so much stuff. I also love that you can wear it as either a hand bag or a shoulder bag.

Stråhat m. hvidt bånd - second hand

Straw hat: This hat has been great for sun protection, and at the same time, it’s a perfect summer accessory.

Hårklemmer

Big hair clips: These types of hair clips are very trendy right now, and I see why. They make doing your hair super easy, and they look cute too.

Morphe x Jaclyn Hill eyeshadow palette: This has been my go-to palette since I got it. You can create endless amounts of looks with it, and the shades are pigmented and really easy to blend. This is definitely a new stable in my make-up collection.

breakfast-club

The Breakfast Club (film): I’ve been wanting to watch this ’80s classic for years, and when I finally got the chance a week or so ago, I was not disappointed. If you like ’80s teen films, this is an absolute must-see. I would say that if you’re a film fan in general, this is a must-see.

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.

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.

5 favourites – May

Tomorrow, it’ll officially be summer, but weather-wise the summer started four weeks ago. I don’t think we’ve ever had weather this beautiful for four weeks in a row in Denmark; at least not in my lifetime. And it appears to continue for a while. Anyways, enough about the weather for now. Let’s talk about my 5 favourites from the month of May.

Hvidt sløjfespænde

White bow: When the weather is hot, I wan’t my hair out of my face, and this bow (which used to be my mum’s) has been one of my go-to hair accessories.

Hvide smalle cat-eye solbriller

White cat-eye sunglasses: I featured these sunglasses in my most recent haul, and they’ve pretty much been the only sunglasses I’ve worn since a bought them. I love the cat-eye shape and the white frame, and they look great with any outfit.

Jeffree Star Velour lip scrub (Mojito): When you wear lipstick everyday like I do, exfoliating your lips is essential. This Mojito-flavoured lip scrub from one of my favourite make-up brands does the job, and it smells and taste incredible.

Maybelline nude neglelak

Maybelline Super Stay 7 Days gel nail colour (shade: Second Skin): My nails have been in a really bad condition lately, so I’ve had to cut them very short. When I have short, broken nails, I don’t like to wear bright nail colours, and instead I opt for a nude, and this is the perfect nude nail colour for my skin tone.

gotg2

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 (film): I’m featuring another super hero film this month, but man, this is a great one. I really like the first Guardians of the Galaxy, but Vol. 2 is even better! I can’t get over how cute Baby Groot is.

First impressions: Stila Magnificent Metals Glitter & Glow liquid eye shadow

DSC_5385

A ton of beauty youtubers have raved about the Stila Magnificent Metals Glitter & Glow liquid eye shadows, and as a glitter lover, I had to try one out. I chose the shade Smoldering Satin, which is a brown/taupe with silver glitter.

First impressions

The eye shadow is really easy to apply. It has a pretty standard liquid eye shadow/lipstick wand/applicator. I used a finger to blend out the edges which worked very well. It dries rather quickly, and it’s really long lasting. It also looks stunning, so if you love an intense glittery look, I would definitely recommend these. I recently bought a second shade, and I would love to add more colours to my (small) collection.

New apartment

Here’s what I wore Monday April 23. These are the first outfit pictures taken in my new apartment. I don’t know if it’s the best place to take outfit pictures, but it has to do for now.

(Bomber jacket + skirt + T-shirt – H&M, sneakers – Bershka)

First impressions: Essence In Love With Rose eyeshadow box

DSC_5123

One of my sisters speaks highly about Essence eye shadows. More specifically the single eye shadows that you can put in a custom palette, and I thought about trying those out, but then I saw some new eye shadow palettes from their Trend Factory collection, and I chose to try out the one called In Love With Rose which is number 02 & Happily Ever After.

First impressions

When you swatch the shadows with your fingers, the pigmentation seems decent, but as you can see that pigmentation doesn’t translate on to the eyelids; at least not with the lighter shades. They do blend out nicely though, and if you like a more subtle eye shadow look, these are very pretty. But be careful with the shimmery shades, because they have some fall out. The lasting power of the shadows were very good; I took the first picture right after applying my make-up and the second picture 12,5 hours later, and the eye shadows hadn’t changed much at all. Because I like pigmented eye shadows, I probably wouldn’t buy any more of these types of palettes from Essence, but I’m still curious about their single eye shadows, and I might try those out to see if the formula is different.

5 favourites – April

It’s the final day of April and a very rainy one. April has propably been the busiest month for me this year so far. I’ve been working a lot, and I also moved. I still managed to collect a lot of favourites, and here’s 5 of them.

Regnbue hårnåle

Rainbow hair pins: I’ve had this colourful hair pins for ages, and I’ve always used them a lot, but I’ve started to use them even more. I’m wearing them here, and it’s one of my go-to hair styles.

Paprika Pringles

Pringles – Paprika: I definitely prefer sweets/candy over crisps, but I do like crisps, and I have found my favourite flavour in these Pringles. They are so good!

DSC_5231

iPhone SE: I really needed to get a new phone for ages, and two weeks ago, I finally got a new one. I decided to get my first iPhone, and I didn’t need the newest one, so I went with the SE, and so far I’m very happy with my choice. I’ve always wanted a phone with a cute cover, and I found this awesome dinosaur one on Etsy (if you didn’t know already, I’m obsessed with dinosaurs).

wonder_woman

Wonder Woman (film): I finally got to watch Wonder Woman in the beginning of the month, and I loved it. I’m always up for a good super hero film, and it’s so nice to see a strong, female super hero as the main character.

My new apartment: My last favourite of this month is my new apartment. I’ve only lived here for two weeks, but I love it! It’s nice to be out of the dorm and finally have a proper home. The picture is just a small part of my living room, and it’s one of my favourite spaces.
