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 – January

The first month of 2019 is now over, and I can sum it up in two words: work and freezing. Yes, pretty much all I did this month was work (and get a lot of use out of a couple of my Christmas presents which is featured in this favourites post), and it’s been freezing cold outside in Denmark (it actually snowed quite a bit today). I only have six more work days and then I have a week off, so I’m really looking forward to that. But anyways, let’s talk about some favourites.

Jeffree Star Cosmetics Androgyny eye shadow palette: It’s no secret that I love Jeffree Star Cosmetics, and even though this was Jeffree’s second palette release, I didn’t buy it until recently. I’m so glad I finally did though, because I love this palette. The colours are stunning, and the pigmentation is fantastic. I can’t wait to create more gorgeous eye looks with this palette.

dsc_6740

Milani Strobe Light Instant Glow Powder (shade: Afterglow): I have another make-up favourite this month, and it’s this gorgeous highlighter. The shade is perfect, and the pigmentation is perfect. It has been my go-to highlighter the past couple of weeks, and I’ll definitely continue to use this.

natkingcole

A Portrait of Nat King Cole (album): I love Nat King Cole. He’s my favourite jazz musician/crooner. My favourite record is a Nat King Cole one, and this CD which I found at a second hand store between Christmas and New Year’s is also a favourite of mine. I’ve been listening to this CD on repeat this past month, and I’ll probably continue to do so.

thesims4seasons

The Sims 4 Seasons (computer game): I finally got this expansion pack (I got it for Christmas), so I’ve been playing The Sims 4 whenever I had the time. I’ve been playing The Sims games for the past 15 years or so, and I still absolutely love it.

chromecast

Google Chromecast: I don’t have any TV channels, so until this month I’ve been watching Netflix on my iPad, which is fine, but it’s nice to finally be able to watch TV series and films on a slightly bigger screen. I’ve also enjoyed watching YouTube videos on my TV though I still mostly watch those on my iPad (my iPad is my portable TV).

5 favourites – September

Another month has flown by, and we’re now another month closer to December:) The weather has become more autumnal, and I really don’t mind it. I love dressing in autumn, because you can start to layer. There’s also a lot of great textures and colours in autumn fashion, so I’m feeling very inspired when it comes to putting together outfits these days. I do also have a couple of fashion related favourites this month though the might not be particularly autumnal.

Hvide chunky sneakers m. lyserøde, grå og karrygule detaljer - Topshop

Chunky sneakers: Sneakers are my go-to kind of shoes, and these chunky ones from Topshop has been my favourite pair this past month. They’re super comfortable, and I love the slightly odd colour combination.

Trollbeads forandringsring

Trollbeads ring of change: I bought this ring with some money I got as a graduation present (when I got my master’s degree), and I’ve been wearing it a ton. I love that you can costumise it to match your outfit by changing the bead.

DSC_6084

Half updo with big hair clip: I featured big hair clips in my July favourites, and I still love them and wear them all the time. This past month, I’ve mainly worn them in this half updo fashion. It’s just such an easy and quick way to do your hair, and it looks cute.

null

Coco (film): I finally got to watch Disney’s Coco, and I absolutely loved it! I loved the story, the music, and the scenery and colours of the film are gorgeous. I don’t know how Disney does it, but they sure make the best animated films.

DSC_5949

Record player: I’d been wanting a record player for a while, and I was very lucky to get one for my birthday last month. I’ve been buying old records at second hand stores, and I’ve been listening to them almost every day, since I got the recond player.

5 favourites – June

Another month has come to an end and for me it was the last month of work before the summer holidays. The warm summer weather has returned, and the timing is perfect. I’ll be spending most of July with my family in my parents’ summer house/cottage, so I won’t be blogging everyday, but I’ll still try to blog as much as possible. Anyways, I had a lot of favourites in June, but I managed to pick five, so here they are.

Sort oversized denimjakke m. Pluto-mønster - H&M

Oversized denim jacket with Pluto print: I’m sure, I’ve expressed my love for everything Disney more than once, and this denim jacket is no exception. Denim jackets are my go-to outerwear in the summer, and this one is so cute and it makes every outfit a little more fun and quirky.

DSC_5345

Jeffree Star Velour liquid lipstick in Anna Nicole: I rarely feature lip products in my favourites posts, because I wear and love so many different ones, but I had to mention this gorgeous bright orangy-red shade from my favourite liquid lipstick brand. It’s the perfect summer red.

jurassic-world-fallen-kingdom_r9ur2r

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom (film): Having a huge dinosaur obsession, I was very excited about the newest addition to the Jurassic series, and I was not disappointed. It was a bit darker and creepier than the previous films, but I really liked that. Oh, and the dinosaurs were awesome.

That-70s-show-800x400

That ’70s Show (TV series): My dad has talked about this TV series for years, and when I discovered that all 8 season were on Netflix, I decided to give it a go. I’m very inspired by ’70s fashion and home decor, so I knew I would love those parts of the series, but as it turns out, I love everything else as well.

Excuse Me – Salvador Sobral (album): I’ve featured two Salvador Sobral songs in previous 5 favourites posts, and I finally bought his debut album from 2016. I’ve been listening to this album on repeat throughout the entire month of June; it’s so beautiful! The song above is one of my favourites from the album, and I would recommend that you give it a listen.

5 favourites – November

Finally! It’s the last day of November which means that December starts tomorrow. I’ve expressed my love for Christmas at more than one occasion, so I’m very excited indeed. That is also why most of my November favourites are related to Christmas.

DSC_3822

Urban Decay eye shadow in Relish: I’m obsessed with red eye shadow and this one is stunning! It’s so pigmented and blendable, and it complements my Juvia’s Place The Saharan palette perfectly.

Honninghjerte 1

Gingerbread: Gingerbread is one of my favourite Christmas treats. In Denmark we call it ‘honningkage’ (directly translated: honey cake), and it usually comes in the shape of a heart. I’ve already eaten quite a few ‘honningkager’, or ‘honninghjerter’ (honey hearts), this past month.

Arthur Christmas

Arthur Christmas (film): I’ve watched a lot of Christmas films in November, and Arthur Christmas was my favourite. I hadn’t watch it before, and loved it! If you love Christmas and you love cartoons this is a must-watch film.

The Lake House

The Lake House (film): I’ve also watched other films that are not Christmas films this past month. I hadn’t heard about The Lake House before, but it was so good! One of the best romantic films I’ve watched in a long time.

The Christmas Song – Nat King Cole: The song I’ve listened to the most this past month is without a doubt this Christmas classic. The old, classic Christmas songs are my favourites in general, and this one is just so beautiful and festive!

5 favourites – August

I can’t believe that the last summer month will be over by tomorrow. We have had varied weather in Denmark this past month, but with a nice summer day here and there. I don’t mind that autumn is approaching though; that just means that we are getting closer to December and Christmas! But we still have a couple of autumn months to go through, and also a couple more favourites posts, so let’s start with some August favourites.

Lyseblå oversized denim jakke - H&M

Denim jacket: I’ve been loving this denim jacket since I started wearing it in the end of July. It goes with pretty much any outfit, and it’s been the perfect jacket for the warmer days we’ve had this past month.

Gosh neglelak i Sweet Rose

Gosh nail varnish (shade: 589 Sweet Rose): In the beginning of the month I wore this pink nail varnish two weeks in a row, and I absolutely loved it. I also wore pink nails another week this month, so I guess I’ve just been really into pink nails.

Bodum Travel Mug

Bodum travel mug: My birthday was in August and one of the things I got for my birthday was this travel mug. I had done some research on travel mugs (I knew I was going to spend a lot of time at uni writing my thesis), and this one was supposed to be one of the best ones, and it really is. It’s not leaking the slightest and it keeps the coffee warm for ages.

Newgirl

New Girl (TV series): I had thought about watching New Girl for a while, and I finally decided to give it a go in the beginning of the month, and I got hooked instantly. I finished the fifth season yesterday, and I’m really sad that there are no more seasons on Netflix at the moment. I don’t even know how to begin describing this show, but it’s so sweet and funny, and I absolutely love the characters. Every single one of them. So if you haven’t watched New Girl and you love sit coms, you should definitely give it shot.

It’s Time – Michael Bublé (album): Another birthday present I’ve been loving this month is this Michael Bublé album. I’ve been listening to it countless times, and it just makes me happy. I love all the songs on the album, and here’s just one of my favourites.

5 favourites – June

June has definitely been the toughest month for me this year so far. I’ve had a lot of exams and some very difficult ones, but they all went well, and now I’m going to enjoy my summer holidays before I start writing my thesis in August. Therefore, my blogging will be inconsistent the next month, but I’ll try to post as often as possible. I wish you all an amazing summer, and here’s some favourites from the month of June.

lysebla-ankel-flare-jeans-hm

Kick flare jeans: When I bought these jeans, I didn’t expect to love them as much as I do. I think they make an outfit look way more interesting, and they remind me a bit of the 70’s, which is awesome. I love that they can be styled in so many different ways. I’m wearing them here and here.

DSC_1827

Silver choker with pendants: This dainty silver choker has been one of my most worn necklaces this past month. I’ve been layering it with my Stegosaurus necklace, and I think they look great together.

Pukka Peppermint and Licorice 1

Pukka peppermint & licorice tea: I love tea, and liquorice is one of my favourites. This is quite an expensive tea brand (my mum gave it to me), but it really is good, and I love the combination of peppermint and liquorice.

how-i-met-your-mother-banner

How I Met Your Mother (TV series): I finally decided to watch HIMYM in the beginning of the month, and I got hooked instantly. I watched all 9 seasons (it was pretty much all I did in the evenings after I was done studying for the day), and I absolutely loved it. I will definitely rewatch this series some time.

Nem Eu – Salvador Sobral: My obsession with Salvador Sobral’s music continued throughout the month of June, and this song is just as beautiful as his Eurovision song. I still don’t understand a single word, but it still manages to move me, and I think it’s incredible when music can do that.
