I’ve purchased a few pieces in different sales recently, and I thought I would share them with you.
I’ve talked about the clothing brand VRS at several occations. It’s a brand carried by a Danish chain of supermarkets. Somestimes you can find some really nice pieces. I had actually tried on the green dress before and didn’t buy it initially, but when all clothing at my local supermarket was on sale last week, I decided to buy it. I think it’ll be the perfect dress to wear on Christmas Eve (in Denmark we celebrate Christmas on Christmas Eve). I also found the red dress and thought it would be a great holiday party dress. Lastly, I bought a stripy roll neck top, because you can never have too many roll neck tops or stripy tops for that matter.
I’ve also purchased a few pieces from Asos. The rainbow jacket is from Daisy Street, and the rainbow scarf is from Brave Soul (can you tell that I like all things rainbow). And obviously I couldn’t resist the adorable T-Rex socks.
Lastly, I ordered two pairs of shoes from Zalando. I’ve been craving both of these pairs for a while, and when both pairs were on sale, I had to get them. I’ve been wanting a pair of white boots for a long time, and I just loved these ones from Topshop. I love the elongated shape and the wooden heel. I absolutely love my classic white Nike Cortez, and I thought these lilac ones were really nice. There was only one pair left at the time I bought these, and they were in my size. It was meant to be.
Leading up to Black Friday, Beauty Bay had a ‘bragging rights’ sale, and I bought a few things.
I finally decided to buy the Jeffree Star Androgyny eye shadow palette. Jeffree Star eye shadows are some of my favourites, and the shades in this palette are gorgeous. I’m really looking forward to create lots of different eye looks using this palette.
I already have one of these Milani blushers, and it’s one of my favourite blushers, so I decided to get a second shade. I chose the shade Blossomtime Rose, which is a warm peachy colour with a nice sheen to it.
Lastly, I bought one of the Jouer Long-Wear Lip Toppers in the shade Funfetti. I’m not into lipgloss, but this just looked so pretty with all the different colours of glitter, so I thought I would give it a go.
It’s time for part two of my Christmas haul.
I’ve bought three pairs of festive socks this year. The dark grey ones with Santa and snowflakes are from my local supermarket, the green ones with candy canes are from a Danish store called Normal, and the light grey ones with reindeer are form H&M.
How cute are these Christmas hair clips. I especially like the Christmas trees; I believe that I will get the most wear out of those. The Santas are cute too though. They are from Normal.
I love festive earrings, and these glittery Santa ones are adorable. I found these at my local supermarket.
These pretty earrings are from the UK webshop Lisa Angel, and they’re made of sterling silver. They’re really cute and dainty and the quality is great, and I know I’ll get a lot of wear out of these. The candy canes are my favourites so far.
It’s finally December 1, so it’s time for my annual Christmas clothing haul. I’m going to split it up into two parts; clothes (jumpers and T-shirts) and accessories (socks and jewellery etc.). Let’s start with clothes.
Once again, some of the Danish chain supermarkets nailed their Christmas jumpers this year. I couldn’t choose between the reindeer and the snowman so I purchased both. The reindeer one plays Jingle Bells when you press it’s nose, and it’s just so cute. The snowman one has pom poms on it, and on the back of the jumper the snowman has melted and the whole text says ‘You are worth melting for’. I can’t wait to wear these!
If the two previous jumpers are a bit much for your taste, this navy sweatshirt with sequins from Only is a more toned down option. I love a bit of sparkle, and the details on this top are so nice.
H&M usually has a good selection of Christmas jumpers, and my favourite this year is this super festive red jumper. It has a lot of details, and I love the colours.
I found this grey jumper at the boys’ section at H&M. I love the film ‘Jaws’, and I thought this jumper was a bit of fun.
I told myself not to buy any Christmas T-shirts this year, because it’ll be to cold to wear a T-shirt on it’s own, but then I thought that I’d have to wear something underneath my jumpers, and it might as well be festive. Both of these T-shirts are from H&M. The first one is quite simple, but I liked the red metallic writing. Of course I had to have the Wham! one, because I love a graphic T-shirt (especially one with a pop culture reference), and I love ‘Last Christmas’ (but who doesn’t)! Stay tuned for the second part of my Christmas haul.
Jeffree Star released his 2018 holiday collection two weeks ago, and of course I picked up a handful of products from the collection. I purchased three of the Velour liquid lipsticks and one Velour lip scrub. The white iridescent packaging is stunning and the glitter is the icing on the cake. The lipstick shades that I picked up are Karma (warm khaki green), Hi, How are Ya? (red w. glitter), and Triggered (dark plum brown w. glitter). So far I’ve only worn Triggered and it was so pigmented and absolutely gorgeous. The lip scrub that I picked up is the salted caramel flavoured one, and I love everything salted caramel. I think Jeffree Star created another gorgeous holiday collection this year.
Today I want to share my latest second hand finds with you.
I’m always on the hunt for a new ‘party’ top, and I couldn’t leave this glitter top behind. I love the pattern in the glitter, and I think it’ll look great on top of a black long-sleeve roll neck top for the colder season.
I always look for blazers when I’m second hand shopping, because all of my favourite blazers are second hand. My latest blazer find is this blue one, and I can’t wait to style it.
Another thing I’m always looking for at second hand stores are roll neck tops. This one has stripes which is just a big plus.
How cute is this home-knitted jumper. I love the colours and the fact that it’s stripy.
And now for skirts. I bought three skirts, the first one being this simple black midi skirt. I thought it would be nice to have a black skirt to wear for any occasion.
This skirt has a tiny, little Mickey Mouse on the pocket, and you probably know how I feel about Mickey Mouse or anything Disney related. I think this skirt would look really cute with a lot of my Christmas jumpers.
The third and last skirt is this brown floral maxi skirt. It’s very different from anything I own, but I thought it would be fun to style.
Lastly, I found this grey leopard print scarf, which I’ve worn several times already. Animal print has obviously been a huge trend for a while now, so I thought a scarf was a good piece for trying out the trend.
Since 2014 I’ve been purchasing a couple of products from the MAC holiday collections, and this year is no exception. The collection this year is called Shiny Pretty Things, and it has shiny silver packaging. I bought two products; a face palette and a lipstick.
The Nutcracker Sweet peach face compact from the 2016 holiday collection is one of my favourite MAC products of all time. Therefore, I decided to get one of the face compacts from this year’s collection. I got the one in Fair (it also comes in Medium/Deep), and it consists of an Extra Dimension Skinfinish in the shade String Lights, an Extra Dimension blush in the shade Sweater Weather, and an Extra Dimension bronzer in the shade Five-Alarm Kiss. The Nutcracker Sweet compact didn’t include a bronzer, so I’m really happy that MAC included one in this year’s face compacts. I love the Extra Dimension formulas, and I’m really enjoying this product so far. I think it’ll be great for traveling as well.
I always get one of the lipsticks, and from this collection I chose the shade Straight Fire. It’s in a matte metallic finish, which I hadn’t tried from MAC before, but I absolutely love this lipstick. I love the finish and I love the colour. It’s a beautiful deep metallic red; perfect for the holiday season (and autumn and winter in general).
