Presents: clothes, make-up, and jewellery

I thought I would share some of my advent calendar presents and Christmas presents with you. These are some clothes, make-up, and jewellery presents I got throughout December.

Grå sweater m. skiløber og sne - H&M

My mum makes an advent calender of 24 presents for me every year, and most of the items in this post are from this year’s advent calendar. Among other things, I got this cute Christmas/winter jumper from H&M.

My mum most know how much I love Christmas socks, because she got me these ones also from H&M.

I think this is my first ever Clinique product, and what’s more perfect than a red lipstick. It’s the Clinique High Impact lip colour in 12 Red-y to Wear, it’s really pretty, and I’m actually wearing it here.

I also got this pink nail polish from the Danish brand Nilens Jord on my advent calendar.

Lancome gaveæske

The last present on my advent calendar was this Lancôme gift set. It contains a La Vie est Belle purse spray, a Hypnôse Drama mascara, and a mini L’Absolu Rouge Cream lipstick in the shade 123 Caprice.

And now on to the jewellery. One of my favourite advent calendar presents are the snowflake earrings that I also featured in my latest 5 favourites post. I also got the matching brooch.

Trollbeads - Julebuk + Højhælet sko

I also got two silver Trollbeads; a Love Goat and a High Heel.

The last two pieces of jewellery were Christmas presents. I got another Trollbead; this beautiful red and blue facet bead called Sahara Jewel. It’s so stunning!

Lastly, I got this Mickey Mouse ring from Pandora, and it’s the cutest thing ever. I’m sure it’s going to be one of my new go-to pieces of jewellery.

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.

Big Christmas clothing haul

It’s time for this year’s Christmas clothing haul, which is probably my favourite haul of the year. I have a bunch of jumpers, a sweater vest, a lot of socks, and a couple of accessories to share with you, so let’s get to it.

Sort sweater m. tinsoldat og ballerina i pailletter - Topshop

Let’s start with the prettiest (and most expensive) jumper. This beauty is from Topshop, and it was love at first sight. I love everything that sparkles, and the sequin work on this jumper is stunning. This jumper is not too in your face, so it’ll be perfect for holiday parties.

Navy + mulitfarvet oversized sweater m. sne og bjerge - Monki

This Monki jumper is probably more of a winter jumper than a Christmas jumper (in my opinion), but that just means that it can be worn in November as well (which I obviously did). It’s long and oversized and so cosy, and I love the bright colours. I will definitely wear this every year from now on.

Rød og blå stribet sweater m. snemænd og juletræer - Vila

And from an oversized jumper to a more fitted one. This one is from Vila, and I just loved the colours and design.

Rød rullekravetrøje m. slikstokke - Asos

I always look at men’s Christmas jumpers as well, because I often find some really great ones like this roll neck, candy cane goodness from Asos.

Sort sweater m. guirlander af julepynt inkl. bjælder og pompommer - VRS

This one is ugly and over the top, but in a great way. It’s from my local supermarket’s brand VRS, and it has pom poms and bells, and I love that.

Cremefarvet sweater m. slikstok i pailletter - H&M

This jumper is way more subtle, and I’ve actually already worn it. It’s from H&M, and it also have some stunning sequin work on it. I really love the fit and shape of it too.

Grå sweatervest m. julemotiver - H&M

When I saw this sweater vest in the men’s section of H&M, I had to have it. How adorable is this! I can’t wait to style it.

And now on to the socks. H&M has a lot of cute Christmas socks this year. They have a 3 for 2 deal on socks and tights so I got these three pairs.

I also got this 5 pack from H&M with slightly more subtle, but still cute Christmas socks.

DSC_9005

From my local supermarket, I got these three pairs of glitter socks. So cute!

DSC_9149

I’ve purchased two chrismassy accessories. You might have noticed that I really like candy canes, so I couldn’t resist getting this candy cany striped scrunchie from Asos.

Lastly, I also purchased this Christmas tree necklace on Asos’ website, and I’ve already worn it a couple of times.

Collective second hand haul

I haven’t done a second hand haul since August, so it’s about time. I’ve collected a good amount of pieces over the past few months, and I thought I would put them together in one collective second hand haul.

Brun ruskindsfrakke m. faux fur for - second hand

This coat is probably my favourite piece in this haul. I think it’s got ’70s vibes, which I obviously love, and I’ve already worn it a ton.

Grøb, lilla, blå, pink og sort oversized cardigan - second hand

This is the first cardigan I’ve bought in years. I know cardigans have been very trendy lately, but I’m just not a cardigan fan. However, this one was just so fun and ’80s looking, so I decided to give it a go, and so far I really like it.

Grøn sweater m. sorte streger - second handRød sweater - second hand

It’s jumper season, and I love jumpers. The green one instantly caught my eye for obvious reasons, and the red one was just so nice and festive.

Rød satin skjorte - second handTeal skjorte - second hand

I’ve also bought two button up shirts. The red satin one is just beautiful, and the teal one is actually a men’s shirt, but I just loved the colour and it fits me so well.

Lilla strikket beret - second hand

My youngest sister found this hat for me, and I thought it was really cute. It’s like a knitted beret; perfect for winter.

Rød second hand halskæde

I don’t wear a lot of different necklaces, but I thought this big, red one would be a fun touch to an outfit.

Røde og sorte koprint støvler - second hand

Lastly, I’ve found the most insane shoes. I might never wear these because of the hight of the heel, but they were too crazy and fun to leave behind.

Very random haul

I have a small, very random haul to share with you. It consists of a couple of things that I’ve bought online and a few birthday presents.

Sort T-shirt m. Lady og Vagabonden print - New Look

I can’t resist clothing with Disney print. I’ve always loved Lady and the Tramp, so I had to have this T-shirt from New Look.

Mørkeblå Cortez m. bærfarvede detaljer - Nike

Something else I can’t resist is a new pair of Nike Cortez sneakers. This is my fourth pair and probably not my last pair.

Sorte pumps m. farvet ternet mønster - second hand

One of my sisters gave me these cute second hand shoes for my birthday. I love the colourful check print and the sheer fabric.

Troldekugler (fødselsdag 2019)

I love my Trollbeads bangle and ring, so I love getting new beads. My parents gave me these three for my birthday, and they’re so pretty.

Flea market haul

Over the summer holidays, I went to several flea markets, and here’s a few things that I found.

Loppemarked fund 2019

Big hair clips was all the rage last summer, but I’m still not over them, so I added this fun tortoise shell like one to my rather large collection of hair clips. I’ve already shown you the cuff link ring, but I also found a cactus pendant and the cutest Revlon nail varnish pin.

Orange 70'er-kjole m. brun og lilla mønster - second hand

My mum found this amazing dress from the ’70s. She bought it from an older lady who told her that she had found the fabric and then had someone make a dress out of it for her. It’s so nice when clothes have a story, and I love that this dress is one of a kind.

5 favourites – July

July has come to an end which means that my summer holiday is now over. I spent the last three weeks relaxing with my family, which is why I haven’t blogged much this past month, but now I’m back home, I start working again tomorrow, and I’ll also be blogging regularly again. I love summer holidays, but I’m also the type of person who’s excited to get back to work. But before that happens, here’s my July favourites.

Sølvring af manchetknap

Cufflink ring: I went to several flea markets and second hand stores this summer and hauls will be coming up. One of my favourite flea market finds is this silver ring made of a cufflink. The woman who sold it to me made it herself, and there’s only two of them in world, since cufflinks come in sets of two:)

Hjemmelavede perlesmykker

Homemade jewellery: My sisters and I went crazy with jewellery making this summer, and these are the bracelets and ankle bracelets I made. I’ve worn different combinations of these almost everyday these past three weeks, and I’ll probably continue to do so for the rest of the summer.

DSC_8068

Jeffree Star Cosmetics Jawbreaker palette: I don’t think I’ve ever been as excited about an eyeshadow palette than I was for this one. 2019 has been the year of colourful eyeshadows for me, and this palette is absolutely stunning. It was one of the palettes I brought with me on summer holiday, and even though I’ve used it a lot, I still haven’t tried out half of the shades. I can’t wait to play even more with this palette.

DSC_7874

Ofra Cosmetics x Nikkietutorials Glazed Donut highlighter: This highlighter is just gorgeous! The colour is perfect and it looks stunning on the skin. Definitely my most used highlighter in July.

Vintage sko

Vintage Shoes – Caroline Cox: I started reading this book years ago, and now I finally had time to finish it. I’ve been obsessed with shoes since my early teenage years, and this book tells you all you need to know about shoes from the 20. century. It was such an inspiring read.
