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.

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 – January

How are we already one month into 2018? I’ve been very busy starting my new job this month, and I just got the grade for my master’s thesis today, so now I have a master’s degree. I still can’t believe it. I hope you had a good start to the new year. I had a lot of favourites this month, but I’ve managed to narrow it down to five.

Vinrøde fløjlsbukser m. vide - H&M

Flared corduroy trousers: I’ve been obsessed with these amazing trousers this past month. The styling options are endless, and they’re really warm and comfortable too.

Sort bæltetaske

Black leather belt bag: I’d been wanting a simple belt bag like this one for a while, and I love it. It’s my new everyday bag. I wear it crossbody, and it’s not heavy, but it still fits a lot of stuff.

Silver plait ring by Jane Kønig: I’ve worn this ring almost everyday since I got it for Christmas. I love the simple, plaited design.

MAC Ricepaper 3

MAC eye shadow in Ricepaper: I’ve mostly worn very simple, neutral eye make-up this past month, and this eye shadow is what I’ve worn all over my eyelids. It’s very close to my skin colour, and it has a nice sheen to it (which is difficult to see in the picture).

greatest_showman_cover

The Greatest Showman (film): A couple of weeks ago I went to the cinema with my sisters to watch The Greatest Showman, and I loved it. The cast is great, and the music is incredible. Watch it if you haven’t already.

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.

Film style icon: Elle Woods

Last week I rewatched Legally Blonde (2001) for the 100th time and if you love pink like I do, you don’t have to look any further for inspiration. Elle Woods played by Reese Witherspoon is the number one inspiration when it comes to dressing in pink. I’d decided to do this post a long time ago, but it was very nice to rewatched all of Elle’s amazing outfits. I rewatched Legally Blonde 2: Red, White & Blonde last week as well, but I’ve decided to only feature looks from the first film.

Elle’s signature colour is obviously pink; hot pink to be exact. This matching hot pink leather outfit is probably difficult to pull off for most people, but we can still take inspiration from it. I sure wouldn’t mind owning a pink leather jacket.

This look is quite different from Elle’s other looks. The shirt and tie with the cardigan that looks a bit like a dressing gown is a very unique look, and I love it!

This outfit, on the other hand, is so Elle. I want that pink faux fur so bad!

00-holding-still1bend-and-snap

Let’s not forget about the iconic bend and snap. This outfit is so cute, and I’m obsessed with the cropped kick flare jeans.

And of course Elle nails her first lawsuit wearing a beautiful hot pink dress with matching heels. She really brightens up that dull courtroom.
