MAC Starring You

MAC has done it again. Another year, another stunning holiday collection. These are the items I’ve purchased from the Starring You collection.

I love the Extra Dimension face compacts that MAC put out in their holiday collections. This year it’s called the Star-Dipped Face Compact and I’ve got the light version. It contains two Extra Dimension blushes in the shades Dipped in Stars and Sippin’ on Stars. It also contains two Extra Dimension skinfinishes in the shades Show Gold (permanent shade) and Hi-Sequincy. This face compact is great and the packaging is absolutely stunning.

I’ve also got the Opalescent powder in the shade Shooting Star, which is a beautiful pink highlighter/blush topper. The packaging on this is stunning too.

And of course I had to get some of the Kiss of Stars lipsticks. The outer packaging is obviously gorgeous, but look at the actual product! These lipsticks are very glittery and has stars all over them. So pretty! I’ve got the shades Walk of Flame and Starstruck.

Collective clothing haul (mostly Monki)

About a month ago when my youngest sister was visiting me, we went shopping, and here’s what I bought.

Sort langærmet kjole m. smykkeprint - Monki

Most of the stuff I purchased on this shopping trip are from Monki including this dress. I don’t wear short dresses very often, but I thought this one was so festive and cute, so I decided to try it on, and I really liked it. I’m planning on wearing it on Christmas Eve.

Multifarvet stribet rullekravetrøje - Monki

I love roll neck tops, and I found this fun striped one on sale at the Monki store.

Blå rullekravetrøje - VRSBordeaux rullekravetrøje - VRS

I’ve also purchased two solid coloured roll neck tops from my local supermarket. They’re such great layering pieces.

Grøn, lyserøde, sort, karrygul blomstret kortærmet skjorte - Monki

Here’s another Monki item I found on sale. I’ve been loving loose fitted “dad on vacay” type shirts (at least that’s what I call them), and I loved the colours and fun floral pattern on this one.

Røde fløjlsbukser - Monki

Last Monki sale item that I purchased is this pair of red corduroy trousers. I’ve been wanting a pair of red corduroy trousers for a while, so I was really happy to find these.

Pink midi nedeldel i fløjl - & Other Stories

And speaking of corduroy, how great is this hot pink pencil skirt from & Other Stories! This skirt was also on sale, and I can’t wait to style it.

Monki ternede strømpebukser + blondestrømper

Lately, I’ve been on the hunt for colourful and printed tights, and I loved these two checked pairs from Monki. I also thought that the white socks with the lace trim was really cute.

Fløjl- og velourscrunchie

Lastly, I’ve added two more scrunchies to my scrunchie collection (which is quite extensive). Both are from H&M, and they’re great little details to add to an outfit.

Big Christmas clothing haul

It’s time for this year’s Christmas clothing haul, which is probably my favourite haul of the year. I have a bunch of jumpers, a sweater vest, a lot of socks, and a couple of accessories to share with you, so let’s get to it.

Sort sweater m. tinsoldat og ballerina i pailletter - Topshop

Let’s start with the prettiest (and most expensive) jumper. This beauty is from Topshop, and it was love at first sight. I love everything that sparkles, and the sequin work on this jumper is stunning. This jumper is not too in your face, so it’ll be perfect for holiday parties.

Navy + mulitfarvet oversized sweater m. sne og bjerge - Monki

This Monki jumper is probably more of a winter jumper than a Christmas jumper (in my opinion), but that just means that it can be worn in November as well (which I obviously did). It’s long and oversized and so cosy, and I love the bright colours. I will definitely wear this every year from now on.

Rød og blå stribet sweater m. snemænd og juletræer - Vila

And from an oversized jumper to a more fitted one. This one is from Vila, and I just loved the colours and design.

Rød rullekravetrøje m. slikstokke - Asos

I always look at men’s Christmas jumpers as well, because I often find some really great ones like this roll neck, candy cane goodness from Asos.

Sort sweater m. guirlander af julepynt inkl. bjælder og pompommer - VRS

This one is ugly and over the top, but in a great way. It’s from my local supermarket’s brand VRS, and it has pom poms and bells, and I love that.

Cremefarvet sweater m. slikstok i pailletter - H&M

This jumper is way more subtle, and I’ve actually already worn it. It’s from H&M, and it also have some stunning sequin work on it. I really love the fit and shape of it too.

Grå sweatervest m. julemotiver - H&M

When I saw this sweater vest in the men’s section of H&M, I had to have it. How adorable is this! I can’t wait to style it.

And now on to the socks. H&M has a lot of cute Christmas socks this year. They have a 3 for 2 deal on socks and tights so I got these three pairs.

DSC_9089

I also got this 5 pack from H&M with slightly more subtle, but still cute Christmas socks.

DSC_9005

From my local supermarket, I got these three pairs of glitter socks. So cute!

DSC_9149

I’ve purchased two chrismassy accessories. You might have noticed that I really like candy canes, so I couldn’t resist getting this candy cany striped scrunchie from Asos.

DSC_8543

Lastly, I also purchased this Christmas tree necklace on Asos’ website, and I’ve already worn it a couple of times.

5 favourites – November

Finally! December is only one day away, and I’m so excited. November was a really tough month for me, but I’ve decorated my apartment and I’ve already worn festive jumpers for a week now, so the next month can only get better. But first, let’s talk about some November favourites.

Brun ruskindsfrakke m. faux fur for - second hand

Brown second hand coat: This coat was a part of my latest second hand haul. I wrote then that it was probably my favourite piece in the haul, and it sure is my most worn piece. It’s got ’70s vibes and it’s warm, and that’s all I want in a coat.

Essence The Highlighter (shade: 10 Heroic): I posted an Essence haul recently, and I love all the products in that haul, but this highlighter has been my favourite product. It’s such a beautiful highlighter, and I can’t believe how affordable it is.

DSC_8975

The Body Shop Peppermint Candy Cane body butter: Last year in my December favourites, I featured the Peppermint Candy Cane shower gel from The Body Shop. I loved that scent so much, and I was really lucky to get my hands on the body butter in the same scent recently. It’s too bad that it’s not a permanent scent, because it smells incredible (if you like the scent of peppermint and candy canes).

thesims4getfamous

The Sims 4 Get Famous (computer game): I got this The Sims 4 expansion pack for my birthday in August, but I hadn’t played the Sims in months, because I needed a new computer. But now that I’ve finally purchased a new computer, I’ve been playing the Sims again, and I’ve really enjoyed it in general, but I’ve especially enjoyed exploring this expansion pack.

Home for Christmas – ‘NSYNC (album): Last month I featured a old, classic Christmas album, and I’m still listening to that, but this month I’ve really been loving the ‘NSYNC Christmas album, which is actually not that new either now that I think about it. There are so many great songs on this album; ‘NSYNC does the best version of O Holy Night, but some of my most recent favourites include Home for Christmas and The Only Gift.

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.

H&M sale haul + socks and headband

Grøn og hvid slangeprint bikini

I know it’s winter, but why not buy swimwear on sale. This snakeprint bikini is so cute and flattering, and I’m really excited to wear it even though it won’t be for a while.

Hvid T-shirt m. Titanic print - H&M

I can’t say no to a film related T-shirt, and I’ve been wanting a Titanic one for a while.

Gul, sort og cremefarvet mønstret plisséret maxi nederdel - H&M x Richard AllanStøvet grøn midi nederdel m. mønster - H&M x Richard Allan

The Richard Allan collab is probably my favourite H&M collab, so I was really excited to find these two beautiful skirts in the sale. I can’t wait to style them.

Sort og cremefarvet mønstret tørklæde - H&M x Richard Allan

This scarf is also from the Richard Allan collab, and it was also in the sale. I love the pattern and it’s so versatile.

Efterårsfarvede strømper

I love matching my socks to my outfit, so I thought these autumnal ones would be a perfect addition to my wardrobe.

Sort pandebånd

I lost my black headband that was very similar to this one on a bus last year, so I had to get myself a new one.

Collective second hand haul

I haven’t done a second hand haul since August, so it’s about time. I’ve collected a good amount of pieces over the past few months, and I thought I would put them together in one collective second hand haul.

Brun ruskindsfrakke m. faux fur for - second hand

This coat is probably my favourite piece in this haul. I think it’s got ’70s vibes, which I obviously love, and I’ve already worn it a ton.

Grøb, lilla, blå, pink og sort oversized cardigan - second hand

This is the first cardigan I’ve bought in years. I know cardigans have been very trendy lately, but I’m just not a cardigan fan. However, this one was just so fun and ’80s looking, so I decided to give it a go, and so far I really like it.

Grøn sweater m. sorte streger - second handRød sweater - second hand

It’s jumper season, and I love jumpers. The green one instantly caught my eye for obvious reasons, and the red one was just so nice and festive.

Rød satin skjorte - second handTeal skjorte - second hand

I’ve also bought two button up shirts. The red satin one is just beautiful, and the teal one is actually a men’s shirt, but I just loved the colour and it fits me so well.

Lilla strikket beret - second hand

My youngest sister found this hat for me, and I thought it was really cute. It’s like a knitted beret; perfect for winter.

Rød second hand halskæde

I don’t wear a lot of different necklaces, but I thought this big, red one would be a fun touch to an outfit.

Røde og sorte koprint støvler - second hand

Lastly, I’ve found the most insane shoes. I might never wear these because of the hight of the heel, but they were too crazy and fun to leave behind.
