5 favourites – May

The last official month of spring is over by tomorrow, and summer is officially here (hopefully the summer weather will arrive as well). It feels like May went by so fast, and I really can’t believe that it’s already June; a busy month for many teachers out there (myself included). But let’s not talk about that now. Let’s talk about some of my favourite things from the month of May.

Navy quilted jakke m. blomstermønster og fløjlskrave - Monki

Navy quilted jacket: I’d been on the hunt for a great spring jacket, and I definitely found it in this one from Monki. I’ve worn it almost everyday throughout May, and as long as the weather is not getting much warmer, I’ll continue to wear it.

Hvide og sorte zebra print jeans - Asos

Zebra print jeans: I’ve been absolutely loving these zebra print jeans from Asos. They’re the perfect pair of statement trousers, and I’ve worn both at work and on a night out.

MAC Prep + Prime Natural Radiance Illuminating Base (shade: Radiant Yellow): This product has actually been a favourite since December, when I started using a sample size of it. I loved it so much that I had to buy the full size (even though it’s quite expensive), and I wear it most days mixed with my Wet n Wild Coverall primer. It just gives the skin such a pretty, natural glow.

Jeffree Star Cosmetics Blue Blood palette: This one probably doesn’t come as a surprise. I’ve been obsessed with blue eyeshadow these past couple of months, and this palette is all you need to create beautiful blue eyeshadow looks.

aladin-netflix-2019-disney

Aladdin (film): As the huge Disney fan that I am, I was very excited to watch the live action version of Aladdin. There might have been some controversy regarding this film, but I loved it! The colours and scenery was stunning, the actors were great, and the music was beautiful.

5 favourites – April

April has come to an end, and we’ve finally experienced some warmer weather here in Denmark (though it is getting a bit colder again in a few days). I’ve been busy at work in April, but thankfully there was a holiday in the middle of the month. I had a lot of favourites in April, and these are my top 5.

Blå denim overalls - Monki

Denim overalls: I’d been wanting a pair of denim overalls for ages, and these Monki ones are exactly what I’d been looking for. I’ve worn them so much this past month; they’re just so comfy.

Wet n Wild Photofocus foundation (shade: Soft Ivory): I did a first impressions post on this foundation in March, and the more I’ve worn it the more I’ve liked it. The coverage is really good, and the staying power is great.

DSC_6872

Revolution Conceal & Define concealer (shade: C2): I did a first impressions post on this concealer just last week (though I tested it and wrote down my first impressions in the beginning of April), and it has been my most used concealer this past month. I really enjoy the formula and the finish of this product.

avengers endgame

Avengers: Endgame (film): As the MCU fan that I am, I was really excited about this film, and it did not disappoint. It didn’t feel like a three hour long film, which definitely shows that it was entertaining all the way through. I can’t wait to re-watch this one day.

Paris, Lisboa – Salvador Sobral (album): I’ve featured Salvador Sobral’s music in several 5 favourites posts before, and in the end of March he came out with his second studio album. It’s such a beautiful album; I’ve been listening to it on repeat this past month, and I’ll probably continue to do so for quite a while still.

5 favourites – March

The first month of spring will be over by tomorrow, and even though we’ve had a few sunny days in Denmark this past week, I’m still longing for more consistent spring weather. Anyhow, I feel that my appearance has been more springlike, since I’m very into bright colours at the moment (both in clothes and make-up), and that will show through a couple of my favourites from the month of March.

Regnbuestribet dynejakke - Daisy Street

Rainbow stripe puffer jacket: It’s still too cold to wear a light jacket, but at least this puffer jacket feels a bit springlike with the rainbow stripes.

Juvia’s Place The Magic Mini eyeshadow palette: I’m obsessed with this eyeshadow palette! The quality and pigmentation of these eyeshadows are incredible, and the colours are beautiful. If you like colourful eyeshadows this palette is a must have.

Essence Satin Touch blush

Essence Satin Touch blush (shade: 20 Satin Love): I’ve had this blusher for a couple of years now, and I can’t believe that I’ve never featured it in a 5 favourites post. It’s one of my absolute favourite blushers; the nude colour goes with any make-up look, the pigmentation is great, and the satin finish is gorgeous. And it’s extremely affordable!

The Shine Brush by Wet Brush: When I got my hair cut earlier this month, I purchased the original Wet Brush plus the Shine Brush. I’ve loved both of them, but especially the Shine Brush which is perfect for dry hair. If you like me are hard on the your hair when you brush it, try out this brush. It prevents you from damaging your hair from brushing it too hard.

Rugsted & Kreutzfeldt (band): I love listening to a lot of different music, and I have a soft spot for older music. For the past couple of months (but especially the past month), I’ve been listening to this Danish duo who made great music from the late ’70s to the mid ’80s (the have reunited since, but I’ve been listening to their first three records) on repeat. The song above was the first song I ever listened to by Rugsted & Kreutzfeldt, and I’ve been listening to it for years and years. It’s one of my favourites, but to be honest most of their songs are my favourites.

5 favourites – February

It feels like February just flew by, but I don’t mind, because tomorrow the first month of spring begins. The past few days have been very nice weather-wise, and I really hope that sunny, warmer weather will continue. I had a lot of favourites in February, but I managed to pick five, so here they are.

Brune fløjlsbukser m. vide - H&M

Brown corduroy trousers: These trousers have been a favourite of mine ever since I bought them last autumn, and for some reason I hadn’t featured them in a favourites post before, so I thought it was about time. They are the most versatile non-denim pair of trousers I own.

Hvide Cortez m. rød og blå detaljer - Nike

Nike Classic Cortez sneakers: These shoes have also been a favourite of mine ever since I bought them. They’re just so classic, and they add a ’70s touch to any outfit.

DSC_6782

Cherry hair clips: I’m loving the hair clip trend (I love hair accessories in general), and I’ve been loving wearing these cherry ones. I love how they add a little extra something to any outfit.

dsc_6744

Wet n Wild Color Icon Eyeshadow palette in Rose in the Air: Wet n Wild is such a great affordable make-up brand, and their eyeshadow palettes are so good! This one has pretty much been my go-to palette this past month. They colours are stunning and they’re really pigmented and easy to blend.

star7_0

A Star is Born (film): I FINALLY watched this incredible film in the very beginning of the month. It was definitely as great as I hoped it would be; the music is great and both Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga played their roles so well! If you still haven’t watched this, go do it right away.

5 favourites – December

Christmas is over, tonight it’s New Year’s Eve, and at midnight a new year begins. 2019. How time flies! 2018 was a very eventful year for me. I got my master’s degree, I got my first ‘adult’ job (in only three days it’ll be my one year work anniversary), and I also moved into my first apartment. All in all, 2018 was a good year, and I’m excited to see what 2019 has to offer. But first I want to wish you all a happy and safe new year, and then let’s say goodbye to 2018 with some December favourites.

DSC_6615

Candy cane earrings: Based on my recent outfit posts, you have probably noticed that I’m very serious about festive dressing. I love my Christmas jumpers, and I love christmassy accessories to go with them. My favourite festive earrings have been these cute candy cane ones from the UK wepshop Lisa Angel.

Rød velour scrunchie

Red velvet scrunchie: I also like my hair to be festive, and this schruncie has been my go-to hair accessory. I’ll definitely continue to wear this in the new year as well.

The Body Shop Peppermint Candy Cane shower gel

The Body Shop Peppermint Candy Cane shower gel: I love the scent of peppermint and candy canes, and this shower gel smells incredible in my opinion. I’ve been using it nonstop throughout December, and it’s another favourite that I’ll continue to use in the new year.

Suits

Suits (TV series): Suits has been on the top of my ‘must watch’ list for a long time, and when I was ill with the flu in the beginning of December, I decided to finally start watching it. I’m almost done with season 3, and I can’t wait to watch more. It’s such a great show with handsome male leads:)

DSC_6383

My first Christmas tree: I got my very first Christmas tree this year, and you have no idea how much I’ve enjoyed decorating it and looking at it. I got some decorations from my grandfather and I’ve also bought some at different second hand stores, so I had a quite old fashioned Christmas tree, which is right up my alley.

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.

DSC_6024

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.
