Festive emerald

Here’s the make-up I wore with this outfit. I wanted to match my eyeshadow to my green jumper, so I had to break out another new eyeshadow palette (I have many new palettes to haul), because it contained the perfect green shade to match my jumper. It’s of course the new Jeffree Star Blood Money palette, which is a green palette and perfect for this time of year.

Blue magic

Here’s the make-up I wore with this outfit. I wanted to try out another new eyeshadow palette I haven’t hauled yet (I know, I’m way behind on hauls), because it had all these stunning blue shades, which were perfect with the outfit. I’m talking about the By Beauty Bay Book of Magic palette, and I think I’m going to get along very well with this palette.

5 favourites – November

Finally! December starts tomorrow, and I can’t wait. I have an important day at work tomorrow, but when that’s over, I can relax a bit more and do some christmassy things:) I have actually already been doing quite a few cozy, christmassy things in November even though I’ve been busy at work as well, but I only have three more weeks of work before the Christmas holidays, and I’m so excited about that. But before I get ahead of myself, let’s talk about some November favourites.

Grey Mickey and Minnie Mouse sweatsuit (H&M): I never thought I would be the kind of person that would enjoy wearing a sweatsuit, not even on the weekends, but I’ve worn this one so many times this past month.

Christmas onesie: When I haven’t worn the Mickey and Minnie sweatsuit, I’ve worn this Christmas onesie. I bought this last year, and I didn’t get that much use out of it then, but that sure has changed this year. It’s so warm and so comfy!

Fluffy ear warmers (H&M): It’s gotten really cold outside, so these have been lifesavers + I love that I can wear my hair up and still keep my ears warm.

MAC Flashing Ice Extra Dimension Skinfinish trio – Light: So far this have been my favourite product from this year’s holiday collection from MAC. I love the Extra Dimension formula, and so far I haven’t been disappointed in any of the Extra Dimension holiday palettes.

The Body Shop Tea Tree Skin Clearing Facial Wash: I struggle a lot with spots, and I’d heard that Tea Tree oil is great for getting rid of spots, so for over a month now I’ve been using this facial wash from The Body Shop, and I really like it. My skin is not completely clear, but I have fewer spots now compared to before I started using this product, and it’s definitely one of the best products I’ve used to get rid of spots, so I’ll continue to use this for a while.

Annual Christmas clothing/accessories haul pt. 2

It’s time for part 2 of my annual Christmas clothing/accessories haul. This part is all about socks, tights, jewellery, and hair accessories.

Let’s start with socks. I’ve purchased two sets of 5 pcs of Christmas socks. The first five pairs are from H&M and the next five pairs are from Monki, and they are all so cute.

I’ve also bought four single pairs of Christmas socks, and they’re all really cute too.

I’ve also gotten myself some Christmas tights from a supermarket; a pair with mistletoes and a pair with Christmas hats. I’m really excited to wear these.

I found these gloves at my local supermarket a while back, and I just thought they were so nice and festive.

And now on to a bunch of jewellery. The brooch and these first three pairs of earrings are all from Flying Tiger, and I think they’re so much fun and very christmassy.

These pretty Christmas tree earrings are from my local supermarket.

All of these next pieces are from H&M. The ones with the red price stickers on them were on sale, and my guess is that they’re from last year, but that doesn’t matter to me. Just look at how festive these pieces are!

I have of course also purchased a few hair accessories. They are both supermarket finds.

And that was this year’s annual Christmas clothing/accessories haul. I’m so, so, so excited to wear christmassy outfits for the next month!

Naughty or nice

Here’s the make-up I wore with this outfit. I couldn’t wait to try the other BH Cosmetics holiday palette either, so this is my first look using the Nice shadow palette. I like this one too, but based on my first impressions, I prefer the Naughty palette.

Annual Christmas clothing/accessories haul pt. 1

It’s that time of year again. Time for my annual Christmas clothing/accessories haul, and it’s a two-part haul this year. This part is going to be all about the clothes; jumpers, T-shirts etc. Part two is going to be socks, tights, jewellery, and hair accessories. Let’s get to it.

The one type of Christmas jumper which was definitely missing from my rather extensive collection was one with lights. This one is from a Danish brand called Julesweaters (which translates to Christmas sweaters), and I’ve had my eye on this one for a couple of Christmases now I think. It has lights in four of the baubles, and they light up when you hit them. I’m going to feel and look like a Christmas tree when I wear this.

Christmas and Disney are two of my favourite things, and when I saw this on shopDisney, I just knew I had to have it. It has pompoms, a bell and sequins. What’s not to like.

The men’s department of H&M always makes great Christmas jumpers. I mean, just look at these two. They feature two more of my favourite things; Coca Cola and dinosaurs.

And sticking with dinosaurs and men’s jumpers. How great is this one from Asos!

And now on to a couple of red ones both purchased at supermarkets. I really liked the blue details on the first one with the reindeer, and I think the gingerbread men and women on the second one are so cute.

Here are two that you’ve already seen, because I wore these in my last two outfit posts (check them out here and here). Both are from H&M.

I’m so excited to wear this matching sweatshirt and leggings set from Monki. I think it’s going to be so cute and cozy.

And last but not least, the T-shirts. The one with the sloth and the one with the gingerbread men are both from Monki and both adorable. The Love Actually one is from H&M (I love that film), and the Coca Cola one is from my local supermarket.

I cannot wait to wear all of these pieces!

Naughty

Here’s the make-up I wore with this outfit. It’s not only holiday clothing I couldn’t wait to wear, it’s also holiday make-up (stay tuned for a holiday make-up haul). I’m wearing the BH Cosmetics Naughty shadow palette on my eyes, and it’s love at first sight.

(Base: primers – Wet n Wild Photofocus face primer matte + MAC Prep + Prime Natural Radiance Illuminating Base (shade: Radiant Yellow), foundation – Maybelline Fit Me Matte + Poreless foundation (shade: 110 Porcelain), 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 – Essence The Blush in 10 Befitting, highlighter – MAC Extra Dimension Skinfinish in Double Gleam. Eye make-up: base – MAC Pro Longwear Paint Pot in Painterly, eyeshadows – BH Cosmetics Naughty shadow palette (shades: Meringue + Misbehave + Balsam + Very Merry) + MAC Nylon eyeshadow, mascara – L’Oréal Lash Paradise mascara, eyeliner – Jeffree Star Automatic eyeliner in Resting Rich Face. Eyebrows: Maybelline Brow Ultra Slim pencil in Medium Brown + e.l.f. Clear Brow & Lash Mascara. Lips: Urban Decay Gwen Stefani 24/7 Glide On lip pencil in 714 + MAC A Rose In Harlem lipstick)

Big collective H&M haul pt. 2

It’s time for part 2 of my big collective H&M haul; the accessories.

It has definitely gotten colder outside, so I got a new scarf and a neck warmer. The scarf is of course purple or lilac, because as you know I’m obsessed with everything purple.

I’ve been wanting a pair of ear warmers like these ones for such a long time, and I’ve already worn them so many times.

I found this Mickey Mouse Fantasia reversible bucket hat in the men’s section, and I just thought it was really cute.

H&M has this 3 for 2 deal on tights, and I really wanted the Mickey Mouse tights (obviously), so I thought why not get two more pairs of tights. I actually got three more pairs since I got a 2 pack with a navy pair and a beige pair. The third pair of tights that I bought is a black pair with gold dots. I think they’ll be perfect for the holiday season.

I’ve also purchased a couple of festive headbands; a black sequins one and one with a big red velvet bow. I’m excited to wear both of these.

And last but not least, I’ve purchased some different fun earrings; a pair of sparkly snakes, and pair of sparkly eyes (which I actually wore in my last post), and a mix of fun gold hoops and studs (and a single earcuff).
