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.

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.

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.

Back-ups + tools haul

Cocopanda haul April 2020

I don’t always buy fun, new make-up products that I haven’t tried before; sometimes I buy back-ups of my go-to products, and I buy make-up tools as well. I recently purchased the following back-ups; one of my new favourite foundations is the Maybelline Dream Urban Cover foundation, and I’ve almost used up my first one. The Rimmel Stay Matte pressed powder in 001 Transparent is not actually a back-up, but I used to love this powder years ago, so I thought I would try it out again. I love EOS lip balms so I purchased a Whipped Vanilla Frosting scented one (I haven’t tried this particular scent before). The Real Techniques brush cleansing gel is another stable. And the L’Oréal Paradise Extactic mascara is my go-to mascara, and this one is in limited edition packaging, which I thought was cute. The L’Oréal Infaillable More Than Concealer concealer in the shade 322 Ivory is my favourite concealer, so I needed a back-up of that. And lastly, I bought a back-up of my favourite nail polish top coat from Rimmel. It’s the Nail Nurse Base & Top Coat.

Essence børsteholder + børste

In addition to the back-ups, I also came across the It’s Brush Hour brush holder from Essence and thought I would give it a try. I also purchased an eyeshadow brush from Essence.

Mixed beauty haul

DSC_9971

This is a mixed bag of beauty products that I’ve purchased recently, and I thought I would put them together in a haul. I’ve heard so much about the e.l.f. Poreless Putty Primer, so when I found it at my local super market, I decided to give it a go. When I purchased the Jeffree Star Cosmetics Blood Lust palette I also got the Velour liquid lipstick in the shade Dominatrix, which has been on my wishlist for so long. The MAC Fix+ is from the new Petal Power collection, and I had to have it, because it’s in the cherry blossom scent, which is my favourite. I’ve been wanting to try the Maybelline Dream Urban Cover foundation for a while as well, so I picked it up recently, and I’ve already tried it out. I’ll be posting a ‘First impressions’ post on it soon. I love the Essence Shine Last & Go! nail polishes and picked up two more shades; 06 Frosted Kiss and 60 Crazy in Love.

DSC_0015DSC_0022

When I went grocery shopping today and saw that Essence had a new limited edition collection called Crystal Dreams, and I decided to pick up two products from the collection; the Crystal Dreams luminizer (shade: 01 Frozen Shine) and the Crystal Dreams highlighter (shade: 01 Love at First Light). All the products in the collection seems to be glowy and iridescent, so I’m excited to try these out.

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.

Essence haul

Essence is such an affordable brand, and they have so many great products. I’m really impressed by all the products in this haul, so I thought I would share them with you.

DSC_8927

I love Essence nail polishes, and they recently created a line of neutral nail polishes and matching lip products called This Is Me. I purchased three of the nail polishes and the shades are (from left to right) 01 Freaky, 03 Bold, and 05 Legendary.

DSC_8929DSC_8933

I also purchased four of the This Is Me lipsticks; 03 Bold, 04 Crazy, 05 Legendary, and 07 Enough. These lipsticks are creamy, really pigmented and has great staying power.

DSC_8939DSC_8943DSC_8948

Essence has also launched some new blushes, highlighters and single eyeshadows, and I love all three products. The blush is called The Blush and I’ve got the shade 10 Befitting. The highlighter is called The Highlighter and I’ve got the shade 10 Heroic. And the eyeshadow is a matte cream colour called 05 Granny Pants, and I use it to set my base/primer.

DSC_9117

Lastly, I’ve purchased some more nail polishes from their permanent line. The shades are 16 Fame Fatal and 52 Shine On Me, and I thought they would be perfect for the holiday season.

5 favourites – October

It’s halloween today, which means that October will be over by tomorrow, which means that there’s only one more month left before December! But who I’m a kidding, I’ve been christmassing since the beginning of September. I even have a Christmas favourite this month, so let’s talk about those favourites.

Hvide sneakers m. Anders And - MOA (Master of Arts)

MOA Donald Duck sneakers: I’ve had these sneakers for a while now, and I’ve worn them the other months too, but for some reason they have been my go-to sneakers this past month. I guess they have just been working well with a lot of my outfits from October.

DSC_7264

Maybelline City bronzer (shade: 100 Light Cool): I wasn’t sure I liked this bronzer at first, but the more I use the more I like it. It has a yellow undertone, which suprisingly looks great with a lot of make-up looks.

DSC_5346

Jeffree Star Velour liquid lipstick in Celebrity Skin: I’ve had this lipstick for a long time, and it’s been my favourite nude lipstick ever since I bought it, but I’ve reached for it so many times this past month that I had to mention it. It’s the perfect nude in my opinion.

DSC_9044

Essence This Is Me gel nail polish (shade: 03 Bold): I have an Essence haul coming up, but I couldn’t wait to share this nail polish with you. I love Essence’s nail polishes in general, and this is the most beautiful dark nude shade.

Christmas Songs – Frank Sinatra (album): I couldn’t choose just one Christmas song that has been my favourite this past month, but my favourite Christmas album has been this Frank Sinatra one. I’m a huge fan of old, classic Christmas songs, so it’s no wonder that I enjoy these Sinatra songs. I decided to feature the song ‘Christmas Dreaming’, which pretty much sums up my life right now:)

5 favourites – May

Tomorrow, it’ll officially be summer, but weather-wise the summer started four weeks ago. I don’t think we’ve ever had weather this beautiful for four weeks in a row in Denmark; at least not in my lifetime. And it appears to continue for a while. Anyways, enough about the weather for now. Let’s talk about my 5 favourites from the month of May.

Hvidt sløjfespænde

White bow: When the weather is hot, I wan’t my hair out of my face, and this bow (which used to be my mum’s) has been one of my go-to hair accessories.

Hvide smalle cat-eye solbriller

White cat-eye sunglasses: I featured these sunglasses in my most recent haul, and they’ve pretty much been the only sunglasses I’ve worn since a bought them. I love the cat-eye shape and the white frame, and they look great with any outfit.

DSC_5118

Jeffree Star Velour lip scrub (Mojito): When you wear lipstick everyday like I do, exfoliating your lips is essential. This Mojito-flavoured lip scrub from one of my favourite make-up brands does the job, and it smells and taste incredible.

Maybelline nude neglelak

Maybelline Super Stay 7 Days gel nail colour (shade: Second Skin): My nails have been in a really bad condition lately, so I’ve had to cut them very short. When I have short, broken nails, I don’t like to wear bright nail colours, and instead I opt for a nude, and this is the perfect nude nail colour for my skin tone.

gotg2

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 (film): I’m featuring another super hero film this month, but man, this is a great one. I really like the first Guardians of the Galaxy, but Vol. 2 is even better! I can’t get over how cute Baby Groot is.

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.

Pink nail love

DSC_3323DSC_3325

I’ve been loving pink nails lately, and this is what my nails looked like last week. I love an accent nail, and this glitter is so pretty, though very difficult to remove.
