5 favourites – December

Another year has come to an end, and a new year soon begins. A new decade soon begins to be exact. 2019 had it’s ups and downs, though most ups:) New Year’s Eve is not my favourite night of the year; I usually get sad about Christmas being over. However, I am looking forward to be spending the night with people I love. So happy new year, and let’s say goodbye to the old one with some December favourites.

Sort lang uldfrakke - arvestykke

Long black wool coat: I love outerwear, and I have many coats, but I seem to have been gravitating towards this long black wool coat. It used to be my grandmother’s, which is one of the reasons why I love it, but it also goes with every outfit.

Sorte Cortez m. hvide detaljer - Nike

Black and white Nike Cortez sneakers: Nike Cortez is my favourite sneaker style. I have five different pairs, but my most worn ones this past month had been these black and white ones. I love how sleek they are.

Snefnug øreringe

Snowflake earrings: I got these snowflake earrings as a part of my gift advent calendar this year, and I’ve worn them almost every day since I got them. They’re very festive, but still pretty.

Huda Beauty Emerald Obsessions palette

Huda Beauty Emerald Obsessions palette: This green palette has been perfect for the festive season. I’ve loved all the looks I’ve created with it, and I’m excited to create even more looks with this gorgeous palette.

Essence The Blush (shade: 10 Befitting): Last month, I featured The Highlighter from Essence, and this month The Blush has been a favourite of mine. Essence is really killing the drugstore make-up game these days.

Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas everyone! 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 yesterday. This Monki dress is so festive with all the jewels, and I thought I would pair it with burgundy tights, since all black outfits are not my thing.

(Dress – Monki, tights – VRS, headband – Asos, heels – & Other Stories)

I wear this every year… from now on

Here’s what I wore Tuesday November 26. I have many more outfits to share from November, but I thought I would post my christmassy outfits first, because they’re more relevant in December. But back to the outfit. This outfit is actually quite simple, but I love how fun and ’70s inspired it is.

If you’re wondering why the picture quality is different, it’s because I sadly dropped my camera on the floor and broke the lens, so I used my old camera. I’ve ordered a new lens, which I’ll hopefully receive soon.

5 favourites – November

Finally! December is only one day away, and I’m so excited. November was a really tough month for me, but I’ve decorated my apartment and I’ve already worn festive jumpers for a week now, so the next month can only get better. But first, let’s talk about some November favourites.

Brun ruskindsfrakke m. faux fur for - second hand

Brown second hand coat: This coat was a part of my latest second hand haul. I wrote then that it was probably my favourite piece in the haul, and it sure is my most worn piece. It’s got ’70s vibes and it’s warm, and that’s all I want in a coat.

Essence The Highlighter (shade: 10 Heroic): I posted an Essence haul recently, and I love all the products in that haul, but this highlighter has been my favourite product. It’s such a beautiful highlighter, and I can’t believe how affordable it is.

The Body Shop Peppermint Candy Cane body butter: Last year in my December favourites, I featured the Peppermint Candy Cane shower gel from The Body Shop. I loved that scent so much, and I was really lucky to get my hands on the body butter in the same scent recently. It’s too bad that it’s not a permanent scent, because it smells incredible (if you like the scent of peppermint and candy canes).

thesims4getfamous

The Sims 4 Get Famous (computer game): I got this The Sims 4 expansion pack for my birthday in August, but I hadn’t played the Sims in months, because I needed a new computer. But now that I’ve finally purchased a new computer, I’ve been playing the Sims again, and I’ve really enjoyed it in general, but I’ve especially enjoyed exploring this expansion pack.

Home for Christmas – ‘NSYNC (album): Last month I featured a old, classic Christmas album, and I’m still listening to that, but this month I’ve really been loving the ‘NSYNC Christmas album, which is actually not that new either now that I think about it. There are so many great songs on this album; ‘NSYNC does the best version of O Holy Night, but some of my most recent favourites include Home for Christmas and The Only Gift.

First impressions – Maybelline Lasting Fix make-up setting spray

DSC_8368

I swear by the Urban Decay All Nighter setting spray, but it’s not the cheapest option, so I thought I would give the Maybelline Lasting Fix make-up setting spray a try. It has a very fine mist, so you can barely feel it on the skin when you apply it (it’s much lighter and finer than the UD All Nighter). It’s also invisible on the skin. It has a slight make-upy scent, but it’s not too strong. They day I tested the setting spray for the first time, I wore my make-up just over 12 hours and it had held up very well. My skin was only a little bit shiny in the T-zone, but that’s normal for me, and it really wasn’t too bad. All in all, I think this a really good more affordable alternative to the UD All Nighter, even though I think I still like the All Nighter slightly better (that stuff is just so good).

5 favourites – October

It’s halloween today, which means that October will be over by tomorrow, which means that there’s only one more month left before December! But who I’m a kidding, I’ve been christmassing since the beginning of September. I even have a Christmas favourite this month, so let’s talk about those favourites.

Hvide sneakers m. Anders And - MOA (Master of Arts)

MOA Donald Duck sneakers: I’ve had these sneakers for a while now, and I’ve worn them the other months too, but for some reason they have been my go-to sneakers this past month. I guess they have just been working well with a lot of my outfits from October.

Maybelline City bronzer (shade: 100 Light Cool): I wasn’t sure I liked this bronzer at first, but the more I use the more I like it. It has a yellow undertone, which suprisingly looks great with a lot of make-up looks.

DSC_5346

Jeffree Star Velour liquid lipstick in Celebrity Skin: I’ve had this lipstick for a long time, and it’s been my favourite nude lipstick ever since I bought it, but I’ve reached for it so many times this past month that I had to mention it. It’s the perfect nude in my opinion.

Essence This Is Me gel nail polish (shade: 03 Bold): I have an Essence haul coming up, but I couldn’t wait to share this nail polish with you. I love Essence’s nail polishes in general, and this is the most beautiful dark nude shade.

Christmas Songs – Frank Sinatra (album): I couldn’t choose just one Christmas song that has been my favourite this past month, but my favourite Christmas album has been this Frank Sinatra one. I’m a huge fan of old, classic Christmas songs, so it’s no wonder that I enjoy these Sinatra songs. I decided to feature the song ‘Christmas Dreaming’, which pretty much sums up my life right now:)
