Collective Asos haul

Over the past few months, I’ve been collecting a bunch of things from Asos, and I thought I would share them with you.

Grøn og hvid stribet T-shirt m. paillet juletræ - Brave SoulRød oversized T-shirt m. julemandsprint - Reclaimed Vintage

I know, I know. Christmas is six months away, but I found these two cute Christmas T-shirt super cheap on sale, and I couldn’t resist. The green and white stripy one is from Brave Soul and the oversized red one is from Reclaimed Vintage.

Hvid top m. blomstrede organzaærmer - New Look

How adorable is this white top with organza daisy printed sleeves? It’s from New Look, and I thought it might be the perfect summer top.

Orange crop top m. bindebånd - Boohoo

I was one the lookout for an orange top to go with my pink shorts suit, and this smock one from Boohoo is just what I had been looking for.

Turkis og hvide stribede cropped jeans m. vide - Asos

These stripy kick flare jeans are from Asos’ own brand. I found them in the sale section, and thought they were really cute. These would look great with the orange top as well.

Hvide spidse mules m. røde hjerter og gennemsigtig hæl - Asos

I first saw these heart print mules from Asos’ own brand in a picture for an ankle bracelet, and I knew I wanted them, but several weeks past before they went on the website, but as soon as they did, I purchased them. I’m not sure why, but I was just drawn to them.

Sorte mules m. hvide margueritter - Monki

These daisy mules from Monki is just so cute, and I’m sure they’ll go with so many of my summer outfits.

Hvid krave

I’ve been seeing these types of collars around lately, and I thought I would get one and try styling it. It’s from Asos’ own brand.

Kravekæde m. påfuglefjer

Lastly, I found this collar chain (from Asos’ own brand) in the men’s section and thought it was such a fun piece. It’ll definitely add a little something extra to an outfit.

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.

DSC_1700

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.

A big collective haul

Over the past month or maybe a little longer, I’ve been collecting a bunch of different clothing items, shoes, and accessories, and I thought it was time to haul them all. So that’s what this post is; a big collective haul.

Pink oversized blazer - MonkiPink shorts - Monki

In my latest “Film style icon” post about Vivian Ward in Pretty Woman, I talked about shorts suits and mentioned that I had purchased one. When I found this hot pink shorts suit from Monki, I knew it was just what I had been looking for. I’ve already worn it twice, and I can’t wait to style it again.

Periwinkle og grå mønstret skjorte - second hand

I recently went second hand shopping for the first time since before the lock down, but I didn’t find much. I was a little disappointed by the selection to be honest. However, I did find this periwinkle and grey shirt; I have a weakness when it comes to these kinds of shirts, and I really liked the colour scheme of this one.

Sort midi nederdel m. beige mælkebøttemønster - Topshop

I love wearing skirts in the summer, and I prefer midi skirts. This Topshop skirt is something between a midi and a maxi skirt, but I just loved the silhouette and the dandelion print.

Røde sneakers m. Anders And - Call It Spring

I have three pairs of shoes to share with you in this haul. First up are these cute Donald Duck sneakers from a brand called Call It Spring. You probably know that I’m a sucker for anything Disney related, and I’ve been wanting a pair of red sneakers for a long time, so I had to have these.

Sorte læder mules m. træhæl - Asos

These black leather mules are from Asos, and I’d had them in my saved items for so long, so when I saw that they were on sale, I finally decided to get them. I love the fun wooden heel, and they’re just so versatile.

Orange quilted mules - Topshop

Another pair of shoes that I’ve been lusting over for so long are these tangerine coloured quilted mules from Topshop. They are really comfortable, and I love the colour; they’re so summery.

Lilac håndtaske - Mango

How cute is the little lilac hand bag from Mango! As soon as I saw it, I bought it.

PerlekædeOrange halskæde

Next up, necklaces. The pearl necklace is from a brand called sweet deluxe. I love pearl jewellery and this necklace gives my Carrie Bradshaw vibes, and I’m all about that. The orange necklace is another second hand find. I really love orange at the moment, and I thought this necklace was so fun.

DSC_1045

I’ve bought three more pairs of big earrings (they’re one of my obsessions at the moment). These first two pairs were purchased at the same time, and as you can see they are a similar style. The pink ones are from Topshop, and the yellowy ones are from Pieces.

Lilac øreringe (Topshop)

I bought these lilac earrings from Topshop at the same time as the lilac Mango bag, and I thought the two would make a great pairing.

T-Rex hoops

This last pair of earrings I didn’t buy myself. These cute T-Rex hoops from Lisa Angel was an anniversary present from my boyfriend, and I love them!

Darling hårspænde fra SkinnydipHårspænde m. kirsebær

Lastly, I’ve purchased these two cute hair clips. The one that says “Darling” in multicoloured rhinestones is from Skinnydip, and the pink glitter one with the cherry is from Flying Tiger. Both will be great with cute summer outfits.

Summery H&M haul

It’s time for another H&M haul (it’s been alomst 4 months since my last H&M haul), and this one is a pretty summery one.

Hvid T-shirt m. Mickey og Minnie Mouse print - H&M

My soft spot for Disney clothing will probably never go away. This cute Mickey and Minne Mouse T-shirt has a slightly oversized fit, and I love the pop of lilac (it goes very well with a pair of trousers you’ll see further down in the haul).

Mørkegul tanktop - H&M

I don’t remember the last time I bought and wore a tank top/vest, but there’s something about this dark yellow colour and the shape that has a retro vibe to it, so I decided to give a go. I’ve already worn it a couple of times, and I really like it.

Hvid crop top m. citronprint - H&MHvid midi nederdel m. citronprint - H&M

How cute is this lemon set! As soon as I saw the skirt, I knew I had to have it. It’s the same style as my black and white polka dot skirt that I love so much. And I love that you could get a matching top; when worn together they almost look like a dress. I haven’t actually worn it yet, but I’m planning on wearing it for a special occation next week.

Lavendel bukser m. vide - H&M

And on to the trousers that go so well with the Mickey and Minnie T-shirt. I’ve been wanting these wide leg lilac trousers since I first saw them, and when they went on sale, I finally puchased them. The sizing is on the bigger size, so I bought them one size smaller than I usually would, and that was a good choice. They are also a little sheer, so I’ve worn them with white cycle shorts underneath.

Citron øreringeSimilihoops (3 pk)Øreringe og earcuffs fra H&M

And now on to accessories. I obviously had to have the cute lemon earrings to go with the lemon set. I’ve also been wanting some rhinestone hoops, and the pack with three different sizes is pretty much exactly what I’d been looking for. Lastly (in terms of ear jewellery), I thought it would be fun to play with earcuffs, since I only have hole in each ear lobe, so I bought this pack of a bunch of different earrings and earcuffs.

Armbånd (2 pk) fra H&MAnkelkæde fra H&M

I also bought some golden bracelets and a golden ankle bracelet/anklet (what’s the right term?), because I wanted some more golden jewellery options.

Sort flettet hårbøjle

The last accessory I bought is this black braided headband. I didn’t have a simple black headband, and I thought this one was cute.

H&M neglelakker

An last but not least, I purchased three nail polishes. H&M nail polishes are actually really good, and I love these three colours. The first one which looks a bit like an oil slick in the bottle (though it’s more golden in real life) is called Precious, the green metallic one is called Persephone, and the yellow one it called Cream Saffron. I thought these were really nice summery colours.

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.

Another Zalando haul

I’ve picked up a few different pieces from Zalando recently that I thought I would share with you.

Lyseblå T-shirt m. Hercules print - Bershka

Hercules is my favourite Disney film, so I just had to have this T-shirt from Bershka.

Sort T-shirt m. Mulan print - Cotton On

And here’s another Disney T-shirt I just had to buy. This awesome Mulan T-shirt is from a brand called Cotton On.

Hvide sneakers m. sort Mickey Mouse print - Bershka

We’re not done with Disney themed items yet. These chunky sneakers are also from Bershka, and I think that they’re so cute.

Gennemsigtige plast pumps m. spænde og trekantet hæl - BEBO

These clear BEBO heels are the closest Amina Muaddi dupe that I’ve found. They’re very similar to her Begum style, but these are obviously way more affordable.

Sort skuldertaske m. Mickey Mouse print - Kidzroom

The black H&M belt bag that I featured in my february favourites was actually too small for everyday use, so when I saw this Mickey Mouse bag from a brand called Kidzroom, I thought it would be perfect for a new everyday bag, and so far it is.

Topshop øreringe m. sten

This last item (or items) in this haul is this pretty set of six earrings from Topshop. I love that they’re miss-matched, so you can wear them in all different kinds of combinations.

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.

Spring/summer shoes and more

I’m longing for spring and summer so badly, so I’ve purchased some spring and summer shoes that I can hopefully wear soon (meaning when it gets warmer and the current state of the world is better). I’ve also purchased a couple of accessories. I bought everything on Asos.

Lilac læderpumps m. gennemsigtig hæl - Asos

I love everything purple, and I thought these lilac leather heels from Asos’ own brand would be the perfect spring shoes.

Limegrønne pumps m. stropper og trekantet hæl - Asos

I haven’t had an obsession with a designer shoe brand in a very long time, but for the past couple of months I’ve been absolutely obsessed with Amina Muaddi shoes. Her designs are absolutely stunning, and I’m especially obsessed with the heels that look similar to the heels on this lime green pair of shoes from Asos. When you can’t afford expensive designer shoes, you’ll have to look for more affordable alternatives, and I think these are so fun.

Blå åbne mules m. firkantet sål - Public Desire

Another popular shoes designer right now is Bottega Veneta with their square designs and quilted designs (see next picture).  Once again, I went on the hunt for cheaper alternatives and found these cute bright blue heels from Public Desire. I’m so excited to style these.

Sorte quiltede mules - Boohoo

And speaking of quilted designs, I just loved these Boohoo sandals. They even have a fun heel, which makes them a bit different. I think these could turn out to be a go-to spring/summer shoe.

Bordeauxrød krokodilleprint taske m. multifarvet spænde - AsosStore røde øreringe fra South Beach

And lastly, a couple of accessories. The bag is from Asos own brand, and I just loved the deep burgundy color and the fun buckle. And my obsession with big earrings continues, so I thought these red marble like ones from South Beach would be fun to style.

Collective Zalando haul

Here’s some things I’ve ordered from Zalando recently.

Sort sweater m. pailletjuletræ af julekugler og stjerner - Dorothy Perkins

I know, I know. It was just Christmas a few months ago, but I’ve been wanting this Christmas jumper since the holiday season, and when I saw that it was on sale, I had to get it. It’s a more simple and sophisticated Christmas jumper, which I felt like I needed in my Christmas jumper collection. It’s from Dorothy Perkins btw.

Grå T-shirt m. Andersine print - Bershka

As you might know, I’m a sucker for anything Disney related, so I had to get the cute Daisy Duck T-shirt from Bershka.

Teal krokodilleprint støvler - Topshop

I’ve been wanting these gorgeous teal boots from Topshop for quite a while, and when I found them on sale, I snatched them right up. Isn’t the teal colour just stunning?

Bordeaux spidse mules - Topshop

This is another pair of Topshop shoes. I don’t think I have any other shoes in this colour, and I really like the style of the shoes.

Brune loafers m. chunky hæl og plateau - Mango

The last pait of shoes in the haul is this pair of brown loafers from Mango. I’m really excited about styling these. Especially with wide leg trousers and midi skirts.

Sort boxy croc taske m. sølvkæde detalje - Topshop

I felt like I needed a plain black bag, and I loved this boxy croc one with the silver chain detail from Topshop.

Sheer strømper fra Monki - regnbuefarvede hjerter + margueritter

I love cute socks, and these sheer ones from Monki are indeed very cute.

Lyserøde, hvide og teal hoops (Monki)Pastelfarvede hoops (Topshop)

My obsession with big earrings is still going strong, and I’ve added some more pairs to my growing collection. The first three pairs are from Monki, and I love the ’80s plastic vibes. The last pair is from Topshop, and they’re these cute two-toned pastel hoops.

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).
