Christmas haul: clothes

It’s finally December 1, so it’s time for my annual Christmas clothing haul. I’m going to split it up into two parts; clothes (jumpers and T-shirts) and accessories (socks and jewellery etc.). Let’s start with clothes.

Rød sweater m. rensdyr, sne og musik - VRSRød sweater m. snemand og sne - VRS

Once again, some of the Danish chain supermarkets nailed their Christmas jumpers this year. I couldn’t choose between the reindeer and the snowman so I purchased both. The reindeer one plays Jingle Bells when you press it’s nose, and it’s just so cute. The snowman one has pom poms on it, and on the back of the jumper the snowman has melted and the whole text says ‘You are worth melting for’. I can’t wait to wear these!

Mørkeblå sweatshirt m. pallietguilander og julepynt - Only

If the two previous jumpers are a bit much for your taste, this navy sweatshirt with sequins from Only is a more toned down option. I love a bit of sparkle, and the details on this top are so nice.

Rød sweater m. julemænd, pakker, snemænd m.m. - H&M

H&M usually has a good selection of Christmas jumpers, and my favourite this year is this super festive red jumper. It has a lot of details, and I love the colours.

Grå sweater m. julemandshaj - H&M

I found this grey jumper at the boys’ section at H&M. I love the film ‘Jaws’, and I thought this jumper was a bit of fun.

Grå T-shirt m. rød metallic jinglebells - H&MHvid T-shirt m. Wham Last Christmas print - H&M

I told myself not to buy any Christmas T-shirts this year, because it’ll be to cold to wear a T-shirt on it’s own, but then I thought that I’d have to wear something underneath my jumpers, and it might as well be festive. Both of these T-shirts are from H&M. The first one is quite simple, but I liked the red metallic writing. Of course I had to have the Wham! one, because I love a graphic T-shirt (especially one with a pop culture reference), and I love ‘Last Christmas’ (but who doesn’t)! Stay tuned for the second part of my Christmas haul.

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 – September

Another month has flown by, and we’re now another month closer to December:) The weather has become more autumnal, and I really don’t mind it. I love dressing in autumn, because you can start to layer. There’s also a lot of great textures and colours in autumn fashion, so I’m feeling very inspired when it comes to putting together outfits these days. I do also have a couple of fashion related favourites this month though the might not be particularly autumnal.

Hvide chunky sneakers m. lyserøde, grå og karrygule detaljer - Topshop

Chunky sneakers: Sneakers are my go-to kind of shoes, and these chunky ones from Topshop has been my favourite pair this past month. They’re super comfortable, and I love the slightly odd colour combination.

Trollbeads forandringsring

Trollbeads ring of change: I bought this ring with some money I got as a graduation present (when I got my master’s degree), and I’ve been wearing it a ton. I love that you can costumise it to match your outfit by changing the bead.

DSC_6084

Half updo with big hair clip: I featured big hair clips in my July favourites, and I still love them and wear them all the time. This past month, I’ve mainly worn them in this half updo fashion. It’s just such an easy and quick way to do your hair, and it looks cute.

null

Coco (film): I finally got to watch Disney’s Coco, and I absolutely loved it! I loved the story, the music, and the scenery and colours of the film are gorgeous. I don’t know how Disney does it, but they sure make the best animated films.

DSC_5949

Record player: I’d been wanting a record player for a while, and I was very lucky to get one for my birthday last month. I’ve been buying old records at second hand stores, and I’ve been listening to them almost every day, since I got the recond player.

5 favourites – August

August has come to and end, and tomorrow it’ll officially be autumn, which means that we’ll be one month closer to December. Yay! The weather has turned cooler, and I’m starting to feel the autumn vibes. So let’s say goodbye to the summer with some favourites from August.

Sølv øreringe fra loppemarked

Second hand silver earrings: I found these pretty, silver earrings at a flea market this summer, and I’ve worn them so much throughout August. I love the simple, sleek design, and they’re a great addition to my jewellery collection.

Maybelline Instant Anti Age Eraser concealer

Maybelline Instant Anti Age Eraser concealer: I’d heard so many good things about this concealer, so I finally decided to try it out, and I love it. I still love the Maybelline Fit Me concealer as well, but lately I’ve been grapping this one over the Fit Me.

DSC_5668

Jeffree Star Cosmetics Thirsty eye shadow palette: This is pretty much the perfect summer palette; it contains all the neutrals you’ll need + some beautiful pops of colour. I’m looking forward to create even more looks with this palette.

Physicians Formula Butter bronzer

Physicians Formula Butter bronzer: This is another product, I’ve heard such good things about, and I rarely buy new bronzers, because I love my Benefit Hoola bronzer so much, but this one is so good. I have the light version, and the colour is perfect for my skintone. It blends like a dream too.

goodwillhunting

Good Will Hunting (film): In my summer holiday, I bought a lot of DVD’s, one of them being Good Will Hunting. I’ve been wanting to watch this film for a while, and I loved it. I loved the story, and Matt Damon and Robin Williams played their characters so well.

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.

DSC_5595

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.

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.

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.

DSC_5118

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.
