5 favourites – June

The first summer month has come to an end, and all in all it was actually a really good month. I got to go back to work several times, great things happened both in my private life and on the work front, and the weather has been great. And now my summer holiday starts. Things are really starting to look up. But before I start my holiday for real, let’s talk about some June favourites.

Similihoops (3 pk)

Rhinestone hoops: I’m obsessed with earrings at the moment, especially big ones, and I’ve been loving these rhinestone hoops from H&M this month. I love that they come in three different sizes; there’s a pair for every outfit.

Homemade pearl necklace: I made this necklace some time last year, and even though I’ve worn it throughout the year, I’ve been wearing it more frequently this past month. I guess the bright colours and white pearls gives off a more summery vibe.

DSC_1696

EOS Vanilla Bean lip balm: I’m in love with the scent of this lip balm, and I’ve been wearing it constantly when not wearing lipstick.

DSC_0395

MAC Studio Chromagraphic pencil in NC15/NW20: I’d been looking for a nude eyeliner to replace my beloved Sephora one, which has been discontinued, and I found it in this pencil from MAC. I think it’s supposed to be a multi use product, but I’m going to used it exclusively as an eyeliner.

DSC_0821

Maybelline Brow Ultra Slim pencil in Medium Brown: This brow pencil is so good. It’s ultra slim (as the name suggests), and it makes it super easy to fill in your brows. I’ve been doing a slightly more natural brow, since I started using this pencil, and I love the look.

Film style icon: Vivian Ward

It’s been over two years since I last did a post on a film style icon, but rewatching Pretty Woman (1990) gave me a lot of style inspiration, and I thought I would share that inspiration with you. Julia Roberts’ character Vivian Ward is obviously a prostitute in the film, but she’s going through the most incredible style transformation, and it’s that transformation and her new style which I find extremely inspiring.

Red opera dress

One of her signature looks is of course the red dress she wears to the opera. This dress is absolutely stunning, and the long white gloves is a nice contrast to the red, and they make the outfit pop even more.

Pretty Woman - 1990Brown polka dot dress 2

I love this look! Polka dots have been very trendy lately, and I’m really into polka dots. I love brown too, and I would love to find a dress similar to this one. The accessories for this outfit are on point too; the big brown waist belt (another trend), and the hat with the matching polka dot detail; so good!

White dress 1White dress 2

This is another look that would be fun to recreate. I love the botton detail on the dress and the shoulder pads; I love me some shoulder pads. The big hat, clutch, gloves and pearl earrings perfectly finishes off the look.

Shorts suit 1Shorts suit 2

This is probably my favourite outfit from the film and also the easiest to recreate. I’ve been wanting a shorts suit for a while, and I have already purchased one, which will be featured in my next haul. I love the styling here with the botton up blouse and waist belt. Julia Roberts just looks so good in this outfit! Well, actually she looks stunning in all these outfits. She’s one of my biggest girl crushes, and rewatching Pretty Woman reminded me how much I adore her.

5 favourites – May

By tomorrow it’ll officially be summer (calendar-wise), and I’m really excited about that. Especially because the weather has gotten warmer and sunnier. Things are also looking up when it comes to the lock down; lots of things are opening up again, and I might be going in to work again soon. I actually went to work last Monday, but I wasn’t teaching, but hopefully soon I will. I had so many favourites this month, but I managed to narrow them down to just five, so here they are.

DSC_4220

RCMA No-Color powder: I bought this powder about two years ago, and I did a first impressions post on it. I liked it back then, but I didn’t find it to be anything particularly special, and I kind of forgot about it. However, I recently dug out forgotten products from my make-up collection with the intent of using them to find out whether I wanted to keep them or not, and I definitely found some duds, but I also rediscovered really good products e.g. this powder. I don’t know what have changed, but I’m suddenly really loving this powder.

DSC_0712

MAC Rose-gilded eyeshadow palette: I briefly mentioned this palette in my latest haul, and I wrote that I would be talking more about it soon. The time has come. This palette has two fantastic eyeshadow formulas that are different to the regular MAC eyeshadow formulas. The formulas are called creamy matte and molten foil and both are super pigmented and very blendable. The shades are stunning too, and I think I’ve created some beautiful looks with this palette (which I’ll be posting soon).

DSC_0245

Fenty Beauty Sun Stalk’r – Instant Warmth bronzer (shade: Inda Sun): I had a feeling that this bronzer would become a favourite. There’s not much to say about this product other than the formula is great; it blends out beautifully and looks stunning on the skin.

DSC_1137

Earring holder: I bought this earring holder from Flying Tiger earlier this month, and it holds up to 48 pairs of earrings. I love having most of my earrings in one place (except for the really big ones), and it spins so it’s easy to get to every single pair.

Unlock

Unlock (game): I love board games and card games (I guess this is a hybrid), and I tried Unlock for the first time at a board game café in February and thought it was a lot of fun. It’s an escape room kind of game, so if you like those, you’ll most definitely like Unlock. There are 7 different versions and this is the newest version (Epic Adventures). I bought it for a casual at-home date night with my boyfriend, and we both really enjoyed playing this game.

5 favourites – April

Another strange month has passed. I’m still staying home and working from home (like so many other people are right now), and even though I’ve sort of gotten used to it, I miss actually going to work and seeing my friends. But luckily my boyfriend is keeping me company, and I’ve actually not been bored yet. I watch films as usual, and I play a lot of The Sims 4, but I’ve also taking up a new hobby (keep reading to find out what it is). I guess that’s enough rambling for now. Let’s get to my April favourites.

Sort skuldertaske m. Mickey Mouse print - Kidzroom

Black Mickey Mouse shoulder bag: In my February favourites, I featured a new black belt bag which had become my new everyday bag, but I found that it was actually too small for all the stuff I’m carrying around. Then I purchased this black shoulder bag with Mickey Mouse on it, and other than being really cute it’s also the perfect size for an everyday bag.

Blinding highlighter duo

Layering highlighters: My make-up discovery this month is not a single product, but a mix of two products, and not necessarily the same two products every time. I’ve layered highlighters before, but not very often. However, I’ve loved layering highlighters this past month to make them even more blinding. My favourite combo that I’ve found so far is the Milani Afterglow highlighter with one of the MAC Extra Dimension Skin Finishes (Show Gold or Hi-Sequincy) from the Star-Dipped Face Compact from the last holiday collection on top. It’s such a stunning look.

DSC_0530

Colouring: My new hobby that I teased about in the beginning of this post is colouring. I remember when this was a trend a few years ago, and people talked about it being calming and relaxing, so I thought now was the perfect time to get in to it, and I really enjoy it.

Pulp Fiction

Pulp Fiction (film): I have two film favourites this month. The first one is this Tarantino classic. I watched Pulp Fiction for the first time about 7-8 years ago, and it was obviously a very confusing though good experience. Watching it again all these years later was an even better experience. I got to appreciate the unchronological plot and the great dialogue.

Howl's Moving Castle 2

Howl’s Moving Castle (film): My boyfriend loves Studio Ghibli, and I promised him that I would watch Howl’s Moving Castle with him, because it’s his favourite. I was a bit sceptical to be honest, because the animation style isn’t my favourite, and it still isn’t, but the story and the soundtrack of this film was really good; so good that I could look past the amination style.

5 favourites – March

This has been a very strange, very different month. For the whole world sadly. I’ve been working from home for the past 2,5 weeks, and let me tell you, I really miss going to work. I’m a teacher and I love teaching, but virtual teaching is not to be preferred in my opinion. But it’s better than no teaching at all. I haven’t written much about the current situation at all, and I’m not going to, but I have mentioned that I still get properly dressed and do my make-up every day to stay sane. In fact, I’ve actually been very inspired when it comes to outfits and make-up looks, and I have discovered some new favourites in those departments. So here goes; March favourites.

Topshop hoops

Flat hoop earrings: These flat hoops (I guess you can call them that) from Topshop has without a doubt been my most worn earrings this past month. I always love a good hoop, but there’s something I really like about these ones that makes me wear them all the time.

DSC_9961

Maybelline Dream Urban Cover foundation (shade: 100 Warm Ivory): I very rarely find new foundations that I like as much as my favourite Maybelline Fit Me Matte + Poreless foundation, but I think I like this one (also by Maybelline) almost as much as the Fit Me one. It’s the only foundation I’ve been wearing since I did my first impressions one it, and that says a lot.

DSC_9877

Jeffree Star Cosmetics Blood Lust palette: Another Jeffree Star palette, another winner. It’s really hard to beat the JS eyeshadow formula in my opinion, and purple is my favourite colour (and I’m loving purple eyeshadows at the moment), so this is just what I needed in my eyeshadow palette collection.

DSC_9648

MAC Glow Play blush (shade: Grand): This new blush formula from MAC feels like a mix between a powder blush and a cream blush. I’m usually not into cream blushes, but I love this one. The texture, colour, and finish are all stunning.

Luther tv show

Luther (TV series): Now that I’ve had more time on my hands, I’ve also had time to start watching a new TV series, so my boyfriend and I have started watching Luther, and we’re really into it (at least I know I am). We are at season 3 now, and it just gets more and more intense. If you like crime series, this is a good one.

5 favourites – February

For the first time ever since I started my ‘5 favourites’-series in 2014, I forgot to make the post on the last day of the month. So even though it says that this post was publiced on February 29, I actually made it on March 1. I guess that’s what happens when it’s leap year (or maybe that’s just a bad excuse). Anyways, here are my 5 favourites from February.

Sorte støvler m. firkantede snuder - Topshop

Black block heel boots: I’d been without a pair of black ankle boots with a block heel for quite a while, but then I bought these Topshop ones, and I quickly found out how much I’d missed having a pair of all black ankle boots like these. They go with everything, and they’re really comfortable.

Sort bæltetaske - H&M

Black belt bag: I was in desperate need of a new everyday belt bag, because my old leather one was fallen apart, and this one from H&M is a really nice alternative.

DSC_9585

Silver pinky ring: I’ve been adding a few new rings to my collection of everyday go-to rings, and this little hexagon pinky ring from Asos is one of them. It’s really simple and cute, and it pairs well with my other rings.

DSC_9445

MAC Extra Dimension Skinfinish (shade: Double Gleam): This is not only the most detailed and beautiful powder from MAC, the shade is also stunning, and I’ve worn it so much this past month. I’m really trying not to ruin the beautiful dragon design.

Iron Man 3

Iron Man 3 (film): I thought I had watched this before, but I really don’t think I had. If I had I would have remembered stuff from this film. Anyways, I was very pleasantly surprised by how great it was; I had watched the first two films a few nights earlier, and I think this one was better than the second one (it’s hard to compete with the original).

5 favourites – January

The first month of the new decade will be over by tomorrow, which means that it’s time for the first favourites post of the year/decade. In contrast to many other people, I’ve not had the January blues. I’ve mainly been working, but I’m not as busy as I was in the autumn. All in all, I’m very happy and inspired. I’ve loved lots of things this past month, but I’ve narrowed it down to the following 5 favourites.

Hvide Air Force 1 Sage m. blå, orange og mint detaljer - Nike

Nike Air Force 1 Sage sneakers: I hauled these in the beginning of October last year, but I never got to wear them much until this month. I think they’re really cool and super comfortable, and I’ve had a lot of fun styling them.

DSC_9385

Mickey Mouse ring: This little Mickey Mouse ring was a Christmas present from my parents, and I’ve worn it almost every day since Christmas. It’s definitely become one of my go-to rings.

H&M neglelak (Space Jam)

Pink/bronze glitter nail polish: This is one of the prettiest nail colours I’ve ever seen. It’s from H&M and it’s called Space Jam, and I’m pretty sure my sister has one as well that I borrowed from her last summer. I remember loving the colour, so I’m really happy that I found it in a H&M store, and it was even on sale.

Rocketman

Rocketman (film): I’ve been wanting to watch this film since it released, and man, it was good! The music and costumes were obviously incredible, and Taron Egerton did an amazing job playing Elton John. This is a must-watch film.

Half Way There – Busted (album): This is another Christmas present favourite. I’m a huge Busted fan, and this album is just plain great. I think I like this album better than the previous one, Night Driver (even though I do love a lot of the songs on that album too). It sounds like a mix of the old and the new Busted sounds, and I love that! The song that probably stands out the most from the rest on the album is All My friends, which also happens to be one of my favourites. You can check it out above.

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.

DSC_8943

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.

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.

DSC_8948

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.

DSC_8975

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.

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.

DSC_7264

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.

DSC_9044

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:)
