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.

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.

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.

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.

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).

January sales: Zalando + Asos part 2

This is part 2 of my January sales Zalando + Asos haul. These are the jewellery I’ve purchased in the January sales; they’re all earrings + one ring.

Topshop øreringe

I really want to experiment more with earrings, so I’ve purchased a bunch of different fun pairs. These two pairs are from Topshop, and I really liked the chunky silver styles.

DSC_9596

The rest of the items in this haul are from Asos. This pair is by the brand Reclaimed Vintage, and I liked that the two earrings are different.

DSC_9592DSC_9714

I got two pairs of earrings from the brand Nylon. I’ve worn the marble-like ones already, and I loved them. I’m also really excited about styling the colourful pair.

DSC_9707

This neon orange pair of earrings is from the brand Liars & Lovers, and they’re so fun and bright.

DSC_9593

These little tortoiseshell hearts are from Asos’ own brand. I’ve already worn this pair as well, and they’re so cute.

DSC_9585

Lastly, I’ve purchased this pinky ring from Asos’ own brand, and I’ve worn it almost every day since I received it.

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.

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.

DSC_9269

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

DSC_9274

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.

DSC_9330

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.

Snefnug smykker

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.

DSC_9387

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!

DSC_9385

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.
