Gina Tricot x Emili Sindlev

I have a cute little haul to share with you today. These are four items I purchased from the Gina Tricot x Emili Sindlev collection, and I love them all.

Let’s start with these show-stopping Marina starfish earrings. I wore these with the last outfit I posted, and here’s a closer look, and I think they’re so fun and so pretty.

The Jennifer necklace is definitely my most worn piece from the collection. It’s such a pretty pearl necklace, and I love the one big pearl on one side of the necklace.

I also picked up the Emili satin scarf, which is right up my alley with colourful design.

And last, but not least, I purchased the green Cara belt. It’s obviously a statement belt, and I actually wore it to a wedding in August, and it looked so good with my dress.

Zalando haul (June)

Today I have a Zalando haul to share with you. It’s a mix of clothes, shoes, accessories, and make-up. I purchased these items in June.

I have this style of skirt from Monki in quite a few colour ways and patterns, but I had to add this cute, floral one to my wardrobe as well. It’s just the perfect summer skirt in my opinion.

I really like this style of vest/tank top, so I purchased this two pack from Monki on sale with an orange and a black one.

Monki makes really cute shoes, and these two pairs of strappy block heel sandals are no exception. I loved wearing both pairs this past summer.

I also purchased another pair of strappy sandals. These are from Mango, and they’re really cute as well.

The last pair of shoes in this haul I featured in my June favourites, and they’re one of my best summer purchases. They’re from Teva, and they are so comfortable, and I’ve worn them so much.

I’d been eyeing these multicoloured rhinestone earrings from Topshop for so long, and when I found them on sale, I had to get them. I’m so glad that I did, because I’ve worn them quite a bit.

In my last haul, I featured the I Heart Revolution x Disney Fairytale Books Ariel/The Little Mermaid collection, and I also mentioned that there would be more Disney make-up in future hauls. This is one of those hauls, because I purchased more I Heart Revolution x Disney Fairytale Books palettes and heart highlighters. First off, we have the Belle/Beauty and the Beast palette and highlighter.

I also purchased the Cinderella palette and highlighter.

And lastly, I purchased the Tiana/The Princess and the Frog palette (the highlighter was too deep for me).

These are the rest of the make-up products. I purchased the Maybelline Fit Me Primer Luminous & Smooth primer, the MAC Studio Fix Sculpt And Shape Contour palette in Light/Medium, the MAC Prep + Prime Transparent finishing powder, and the Pixi On-The-Glow blush in the shade Juicy.

Here’s a closer look at the contour palette. I’ve not been contouring in years, but this palette has gotten me back in to it a little bit. I still don’t contour every day, but I do it sometimes, and I really enjoy using this palette. I really like the setting/finishing powders as well as the contour shades.

Asos haul – shoes, accessories, and make-up

It’s time for another Asos haul. This haul is a mix of shoes, accessories, and make-up.

I’ve purchased two pairs of Converse. These ones are the Chuck Taylor Lift Sunshine sneakers, and I just love the colours. They’re so perfect for ’70s inspired looks.

The other pair that I got are the Run Star Hike pride sneakers. I’ve been wanting a pair of Run Star Hike sneakers, and this rainbow version seemed perfect. They’re so fun and comfortable.

Let’s move on to accessories. I picked up these gold coloured bracelets from Asos’ own brand, because I always seem to miss gold coloured bracelets in my jewellery collection. I’ve worn all of these, and I really like them.

These are the rest of the accessories – all from Asos own brand. My favourites are the lime earrings and the dinosaur key ring (which I’ve been using as a bag charm).

For make-up I’ve got two I Heart Revolution x Disney collections to share with you. The first one is the I Heart Revolution x Disney Fairytale Books palette, heart highlighter, and lipgloss in Ariel/The Little Mermaid.

The palette looks like and opens like a book, and on the left side you get three blushers and three highlighters, and on the right side you get 18 eyeshadows.

And here’s a closer look at the heart highlighter; so pretty.

The second I Heart Revolution x Disney collection that I got is the The Aristocats Marie collection. I picked up the eyeshadow palette and two highlighters.

This is what the palette looks like on the inside. It’s so cute with the little paw prints in the matte eyeshadows.

The two highlighters are called Duchess (a light gold) and Beloved (a light pink). They’re both very pretty. There will be more Disney make-up in upcoming hauls:)

Collective clothing haul: H&M, Zara, Asos, second hand

It’s been a while since the last time I did a clothing haul, so I guess it was about time. This is a collective clothing haul with items from H&M, Zara and Asos, and I also have a few second hand pieces to share with you.

Let’s start with the pieces I purchased from H&M. You’ve already seen the H&M x Lee denim jacket, because I featured it in my 5 favourites post from June. It is still my go to jacket these days. I also purchased the matching jeans. They are described as loose fit mom jeans.

From H&M I also picked up this grey-black oversized T-shirt w. a neon Coca Cola print.

Let’s move on to the Zara pieces now. I purchased another Disney T-shirt dress, because they’re just so cute.

And it was not the only Disney item that I purchased from Zara. I also got this cute Mickey and Pluto T-shirt.

The last few things I bought from Zara were a bucket hat and some letter brooches. You might guess that these letters are significant to me.

In this Asos haul, I featured a pair of pastel patchwork joggers from Daisy street, but they didn’t have the matching sweatshirt at the time. They eventually got the sweatshirt, so I had to purchase, so I would have another matching sweatsuit.

And speaking of matching sweatsuits, in that same haul I featured a New Girl Order x Hello Kitty sweashirt, and now I’ve purchased the matching joggers for that sweatshirt, so I actually have two matching pastel sweatsuits.

*NSYNC is my favourite boyband, so I had to have this T-shirt from Reclaimed Vintage.

The last item I bought from Asos is a pair of sandals. These rhinestone sandals are from Asos’ own brand, and I really like them, however my Tevas have stolen the spotlight when it comes to sandals, so I haven’t worn these as much as I thought I would.

Lastly, I have a few second hand pieces to show you. These are the first pieces I purchased after the country slowly started to open up again. One of the pieces is this dusty blue blazer. The fabric is quite interesting, and I love the embroidery.

I also bought this burgundy leather jacket. I’ve never been a leather jacket kind of person, but there was something I liked about this one.

And last but not least, I found these black, white, and red loafers in a second hand store and thought they were kind of fun. And I’ve been seeing loafers everywhere lately, so I guess they’re in style.

20% off everything Asos haul

I haven’t posted an Asos haul since February, so I thought it was about time to post another one. I got everything in this haul 20% off, which is always nice:)

Let’s start with a couple of sweatshirts. I’m actually not sure if the brand of this sweatshirt is just Disney, but it’s all it says on the label. Anyways, you know how I feel about Disney clothing and this sweatshirt was just so cute with the embroidered Lady, and the colour of it is really unique, and I love that too.

The other sweatshirt I purchased is this oversized pastel dream from New Girl Order x Hello Kitty. As I mentioned here, I’m really liking pastels at the moment, and this sweatshirt is just the cutest. I mean, just look at the back.

I also purchased this pastel piece, which is from Asos’ own brand. Lilac and light yellow is such a pretty colour combo.

I’m still not over sweater vests, and this one from Daisy Street has been on my wishlist for a while. It’s so vibrant and fun.

I have of course also bought a pair of pastel coloured joggers. These are also from Daisy Street, and they combine two of my new found loves – pastels and loungewear.

I’m always excited to find colourful and/or printed tights, and these lilac ones from Asos’ own brand are so cute.

I’ve seen a lot of these scrunchie style bags, and I couldn’t resist getting this purple one from Asos’ own brand, since purple is my favourite colour, and I didn’t have a bag this colour purple.

I’ve been wanting a pair of big ’70s style sunglasses, and these are just what I’d been looking for (they’re from Asos’ own brand).

I’ve added yet another of these types of hair clips to my collection, but it’s lilac (and also from Asos’ own brand). I had too.

The last three pieces in this haul are jewellery. The earrings are from Kingsley Ryan, and they’re very simple and pretty little multicoloured rhinestone earrings. Both the gold coloured dinosaur necklace and the purple ring are from Asos’ own brand. I love dinosaurs, and I didn’t already have a gold coloured dinsaosaur necklace, so that was a no brainer purchase. And those fun, plastic rings are so popular right now, and I thought I would buy one to see if they really are that cute.

Non-sale collective haul

After several sale hauls, I have a non-sale collective haul to share with you. This haul is a mix of clothes, shoes, and accessories.

I’ve been wanting a long, red coat for a while, and I’ve finally purchased one from H&M. I didn’t wear it out until last Saturday (because I’ve been going nowhere), but it looked great.

Yes, I’ve purchased another matching sweatsuit from H&M, and it’s so comfy, and I’ve already worn it a ton.

And sticking with matching sets, how cute is this lilac, yellow, brown, and white checked suit set? It’s from Monki, and I’ve also already worn this several times, and I’ve loved the looks I’ve created with it.

I don’t feel like I buy new jeans very often, but I love a good flare, and this dark blue wash is so nice. These are also from H&M.

When I saw these two indigo pieces on Monki website, I just couldn’t resist buying them. I definitely want to wear them together and do an all indigo look.

And I have more vests to share with you. This is another Monki vest, however not a sweater vest. I obviously love the colour, and I also really like the rhinestone buttons.

The next two vests are sweater vests, and they’re both from Zara and both are so cute. I wore the cream coloured one with pearls yesterday, and I think I’ll wear the blue one with the clouds tomorrow.

I have one more Zara piece to show you. There was just something about this idyllic nature print and the pastel colours that drew me to this jumper, and so far I’ve had a lot of fun styling it.

I have two pairs of boots to share with you. I’ve been wanting a pair of grey boots for a while, and these calf lengh kitten heel boots from H&M were just it. And look at those lilac knee high croc boots! They’re from Asos, and they are beautiful.

And last, but most certainly not least, I’ve purchased some jewellery. And not any jewellery. Mickey Mouse jewellery. When I saw all of these Mickey Mouse jewellery at H&M website a little while back, my heart skipped a beat. They are all so cute, and I’ve loved wearing them.

5 favourites – January

The first month of the new year has come to an end. January is always so long, and dark, and cold, and it’s happening during a lockdown as well. A lock down that is extending for at least one more month. But hey, we only have one month of winter left, and then spring will come, right? As you may be able to tell, I’m tired of the current situation in Denmark and in the world in general, however, there are still things that I’ve enjoyed over the past month, and here are some of them.

Dark purple Coca Cola sweatsuit (H&M): In my November favourites, I also featured a matching sweatsuit, and I’ve only gotten more into them since. This month I’ve been loving this dark purple one with Coca Cola print (Coca Cola is my favourite fizzy drink btw). It’s so comfy, but also really cute actually. I’ve even styled it for work (working from home that is), and that outfit will be posted at some point.

Charm bracelets: I might have been wearing lots of comfy clothing, but I’ve also been wearing lots of pretty jewellery. I feel naked without jewellery on. This month I’ve been loving charm bracelets, and I couldn’t choose one, so here are the three I’ve been wearing the most; my Trollbeads bracelet that I purchased on Black Friday (I change the charms to go with my outfit), my Pandora x Disney bracelet that I got for Christmas, and a Mickey Mouse one from H&M that will be in a future haul.

Rimmel Clear Complexion Clarifying Powder: I purchased this powder in late spring last year, and I did use it throughout the rest of the year, but for the past couple of months (and especially in January), it has been one of my go-to powders. It has a similar texture to the Rimmel Stay Matte powder (which is also a favourite of mine), but it’s supposed to clarify skin and minimise breakouts. I’m not sure how true that claim is, but either way I really like the look and feel of this powder.

Milani Silky Matte Bronzing powder in Sun Light: The drugstore is killing it when it comes to bronzers. Some of my absolute favourite bronzers are the Physicians Formula Butter bronzer and the Maybelline City Bronzer, and now this Milani bronzer has become a favourite as well.

L’Oréal Air Volume Mega Mascara: I did a first impressions post on this mascara recently, and as I wrote in that post, this has become one of my new favourite mascaras. It makes your lashes look super long and voluminous.

Earring focus

Here’s the make-up I wore with this outfit. I just couldn’t get my camera to focus on my eyeshadow. It only wanted to focus on the rainbow earrings, but I see why, because they are really pretty.

(Base: primer – Essence Wanna Bee My Honey? luminizing primer in 01 You’re Bee-autiful!, foundation – Maybelline Dream Urban Cover foundation (shade: 100 Warm Ivory), concealer – L’Oréal Infaillible More Than Concealer (shade: 322 Ivory), powders – e.l.f. HD Undereye setting powder in Sheer + Jeffree Star Magic Star Setting Powder in Fair. Face make-up: bronzer – Maybelline City Bronzer in 100 Light Cool, blusher – MAC Peaches powder blush, highlighter – MAC Star-Dipped Face Compact light Extra Dimension Skinfinish in Show Gold. Eye make-up: base – MAC Pro Longwear Paint Pot in Painterly, eyeshadows – Huda Beauty Mercury Retrograde eyeshadow palette (shades: Momentum + Utopia + Supernova) + MAC Nylon eye shadow, mascara – L’Oréal Paradise Extatic mascara, eyeliner – MAC Studio Chromagraphic pencil in NC15/NW20. Eyebrows: Maybelline Brow Ultra Slim pencil in Medium Brown + e.l.f. Clear Brow & Lash Mascara. Lips: Jeffree Star Velour liquid lipstick in Jeffree, What the Fuck?)

Advent calendar + Christmas presents

December is (sadly) long over, so it’s about time that I get around to showing you some of my advent calendar presents from my mum and some jewellery Christmas presents.

Let’s start with the few christmassy things. On December 1 actually, I got the cute reindeer/christmas tree jumper from Julesweaters that you’ve already seen me wear. And another day I got some cute and fuzzy christmas socks from H&M.

And now on to some beauty bits. I got two Real Techniques Bold Metals Collection brushes. The top one is the 200 Oval Shadow brush, and the bottom one is the 300 Tapered brush.

I also got these two lipsticks on my advent calendar. The MAC lipstick is the Pretty Punk lipstick in the shade Glamour Of Punk. It’s not a shade I would typically wear, but I’ll give it a try. The other lipstick is the Urban Decay Vice lipstick in the shade Cherry. It was released along side the Naked Cherry eyeshadow palette. I wore this lipstick the other day, and I really liked it.

And now; jewellery. I got this Turquoise Stripe Trollbeads glass bead as my last advent calendar present on Christmas Eve. The rest of the jewellery were Christmas presents.

I got two more Trollbeads for Christmas. I got the Pink Diamond bead from my grandfather, and the Holly Bushes bead from my parents.

I also got this beautiful gold ring with multicoloured zircons by Sif Jacobs from my parents. The picture doesn’t do it justice.

This might be my favourite Christmas present. I’d been talking about putting a Pandora x Disney charm bracelet on my wishlist several times, but I ended up not doing it and I regretted it. However, my sweet boyfriend bought one for me anyways and chose the snake chain bracelet with the sparkling Mickey Mouse lock, which was my favourite! He also got me the Minnie Mouse & Mickey Mouse Kiss charm, which couldn’t be more perfect.

Collective Black Friday haul: clothes, shoes, and accessories

It’s time for another Black Friday haul. These are the clothes, shoes, and accessories I puchased from various places on Black Friday.

The only clothes I bought was this Coca Cola sweatsuit from H&M, and I’m obsessed! I was never into wearing joggers, not even at home on the weekends, but that changed towards the end of 2020.

I only purchased one pair of shoes around Black Friday as well, and it was these purple boots from Asos that I’d had in my saved items for such a long time. You know how obsessed I am with everything purple, so I thought it was the time to get these.

And now on the accessories. I bought these sunglasses from Asos too, and I just loved the shape and the brown and beige colours. I can’t wait to wear these in a few months.

I also bought another big hair clip (in purple of course) to add to my rather extensive hair accessories collection. This one is from Asos as well.

How adorable is the Mickey Mouse watch! It’s from H&M, and I obviously had to have it.

A little while back I puchased a pair of golden T-Rex earrings from Topshop, and when I found the matching bracelet on Asos’ website, I added it to my cart immediately. I’m really into charm bracelets at the moment.

And speaking of charm bracelets, Trollbeads had such a great Black Friday sale, so I decided to buy the My Sweet Stories bracelet that came with the My Sweet Stories lock, the My Sweet Stories heart (a silver bead), and the My Sweet Stories glass bead (the two on the far right). I also puchased two more glass beads (Zebra and Red/Purple Armadillo) and two more silver beads (Crystal Heart and Singing in the Snow). I know that I’ll get so much wear out of this bracelet.
