Collective Asos haul

Over the past few months, I’ve been collecting a bunch of things from Asos, and I thought I would share them with you.

Grøn og hvid stribet T-shirt m. paillet juletræ - Brave SoulRød oversized T-shirt m. julemandsprint - Reclaimed Vintage

I know, I know. Christmas is six months away, but I found these two cute Christmas T-shirt super cheap on sale, and I couldn’t resist. The green and white stripy one is from Brave Soul and the oversized red one is from Reclaimed Vintage.

Hvid top m. blomstrede organzaærmer - New Look

How adorable is this white top with organza daisy printed sleeves? It’s from New Look, and I thought it might be the perfect summer top.

Orange crop top m. bindebånd - Boohoo

I was one the lookout for an orange top to go with my pink shorts suit, and this smock one from Boohoo is just what I had been looking for.

Turkis og hvide stribede cropped jeans m. vide - Asos

These stripy kick flare jeans are from Asos’ own brand. I found them in the sale section, and thought they were really cute. These would look great with the orange top as well.

Hvide spidse mules m. røde hjerter og gennemsigtig hæl - Asos

I first saw these heart print mules from Asos’ own brand in a picture for an ankle bracelet, and I knew I wanted them, but several weeks past before they went on the website, but as soon as they did, I purchased them. I’m not sure why, but I was just drawn to them.

Sorte mules m. hvide margueritter - Monki

These daisy mules from Monki is just so cute, and I’m sure they’ll go with so many of my summer outfits.

Hvid krave

I’ve been seeing these types of collars around lately, and I thought I would get one and try styling it. It’s from Asos’ own brand.

Kravekæde m. påfuglefjer

Lastly, I found this collar chain (from Asos’ own brand) in the men’s section and thought it was such a fun piece. It’ll definitely add a little something extra to an outfit.

Essence Bloom Baby, Bloom! collection

DSC_0825

About 1,5 months ago I stumpled apon a new limited edition collection from Essence. Essence always makes the cutest limited edition collections and the Bloom Baby, Bloom! collection is no exception. I picked up the eyeshadow palette, the primer oil, the two baked highlighters, and the blushlighter.

DSC_0832

I was very intrigued by the colour story of this eyeshadow palette. I’ve only used it once so far, and I wasn’t impressed. Essence eyeshadows varies a lot in pigmentation and quality, and the three shades I’ve used from this palette (the coral, the light peach and the light yellow) were not great. The light yellow and light peach were pretty much invisible, and the coral was just okay. I’m hoping that some of the other shades are better.

DSC_0851

The collection includes this Healthy Glow Primer Oil (01 Violet in Bloom). It contains rice oil and vitamin E, and it’s supposed to be caring and skin conditioning. I’ve used it a few times, and so far I like it. It smells really good too.

DSC_0838DSC_0869DSC_0878

The products that initially caught my eye were the baked highlighters. They come in two shades; 01 Daisy Me Glowing and 02 Rose & Shine! They are very glittery and shiny. I’ve only worn the light shade (02 Rose & Shine!) so far, which has a really pretty pink duochrome shift to it.

DSC_0862

The last product I purchased from the collection is the blushlighter in the shade 01 I Lilac You! I’ve been seeing these blushlighter type products different places lately, and I think it’s an interesting idea. I’ve worn this product once so far, and I actually thought it looked really pretty, so I’m excited to wear it again.

DSC_0857

This very last product was not a part of the Bloom Baby, Bloom! collection, but since it’s from Essence I thought I would feature it in this haul. I love Essence blushes; they are some of my favourites. I already have one of the The Blush blushes, which I love, so I thought I would get the other available shade in 20 Bespoke. It’s quite an interesting blush shade since it’s a very bronzy colour, and I thought it would be a perfect addition to my blush collection.

A big collective haul

Over the past month or maybe a little longer, I’ve been collecting a bunch of different clothing items, shoes, and accessories, and I thought it was time to haul them all. So that’s what this post is; a big collective haul.

Pink oversized blazer - MonkiPink shorts - Monki

In my latest “Film style icon” post about Vivian Ward in Pretty Woman, I talked about shorts suits and mentioned that I had purchased one. When I found this hot pink shorts suit from Monki, I knew it was just what I had been looking for. I’ve already worn it twice, and I can’t wait to style it again.

Periwinkle og grå mønstret skjorte - second hand

I recently went second hand shopping for the first time since before the lock down, but I didn’t find much. I was a little disappointed by the selection to be honest. However, I did find this periwinkle and grey shirt; I have a weakness when it comes to these kinds of shirts, and I really liked the colour scheme of this one.

Sort midi nederdel m. beige mælkebøttemønster - Topshop

I love wearing skirts in the summer, and I prefer midi skirts. This Topshop skirt is something between a midi and a maxi skirt, but I just loved the silhouette and the dandelion print.

Røde sneakers m. Anders And - Call It Spring

I have three pairs of shoes to share with you in this haul. First up are these cute Donald Duck sneakers from a brand called Call It Spring. You probably know that I’m a sucker for anything Disney related, and I’ve been wanting a pair of red sneakers for a long time, so I had to have these.

Sorte læder mules m. træhæl - Asos

These black leather mules are from Asos, and I’d had them in my saved items for so long, so when I saw that they were on sale, I finally decided to get them. I love the fun wooden heel, and they’re just so versatile.

Orange quilted mules - Topshop

Another pair of shoes that I’ve been lusting over for so long are these tangerine coloured quilted mules from Topshop. They are really comfortable, and I love the colour; they’re so summery.

Lilac håndtaske - Mango

How cute is the little lilac hand bag from Mango! As soon as I saw it, I bought it.

PerlekædeOrange halskæde

Next up, necklaces. The pearl necklace is from a brand called sweet deluxe. I love pearl jewellery and this necklace gives my Carrie Bradshaw vibes, and I’m all about that. The orange necklace is another second hand find. I really love orange at the moment, and I thought this necklace was so fun.

DSC_1045

I’ve bought three more pairs of big earrings (they’re one of my obsessions at the moment). These first two pairs were purchased at the same time, and as you can see they are a similar style. The pink ones are from Topshop, and the yellowy ones are from Pieces.

Lilac øreringe (Topshop)

I bought these lilac earrings from Topshop at the same time as the lilac Mango bag, and I thought the two would make a great pairing.

T-Rex hoops

This last pair of earrings I didn’t buy myself. These cute T-Rex hoops from Lisa Angel was an anniversary present from my boyfriend, and I love them!

Darling hårspænde fra SkinnydipHårspænde m. kirsebær

Lastly, I’ve purchased these two cute hair clips. The one that says “Darling” in multicoloured rhinestones is from Skinnydip, and the pink glitter one with the cherry is from Flying Tiger. Both will be great with cute summer outfits.

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.

Citron øreringeSimilihoops (3 pk)Øreringe og earcuffs fra H&M

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.

Armbånd (2 pk) fra H&MAnkelkæde fra H&M

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.

Collective haul: drugstore + MAC

I’ve been doing quite a bit of make-up shopping lately, so for this haul you get two hauls in one; a small drugstore haul and a MAC lip product haul.

DSC_0815

Here are a few drugtstore pieces, I’ve picked up recently. I love EOS lip balms, and I’ve been wanted to try out the sticks and found this set of two lip balm sticks in the vanilla bean scent. I love vanilla scented things, and the scent of these lip balms is one of my favourite vanilla scents in a product. They smell like vanilla ice cream, which is so delicious! I’d never heard of the Rimmel Clear Complexion Clarifying Powder before. It claims to minimize breakouts (!), control shine, and mattify the skin. I actually haven’t tried it out yet, but if it actually minimizes breakouts, it’s a winner. I thought it was time to try out a new eyebrow pencil, and I’ve heard good things about the Maybelline Brow Ultra Slim pencil, so I picked it up in the shade 04 Medium Brown. I’m going to try it for the first time tomorrow. The last thing I purchased in the drugstore section is the Wet n Wild Prime Focus Primer Serum. I’ve already used it a couple of times, and so far I like it.

DSC_0981

MAC lipticks are some of my absolute favourites, so I purchased a few more recently. I also purchased a lipglass, which is very unlike me, since I rarely wear a glossy lip, but all of a sudden, I’m kind of into it.

DSC_0912

So the lipglass I picked up is the classic red shade Ruby Woo. This one is from the limited edition collection Luna Illusions from earlier this year, so obviously the packaging is really pretty. It was on sale too, which is why I decided to get it. Red is my go-to lip colour, so I thought it would be nice to be able to make a red lip glossy. I’ve worn this once so far, and I loved the way it looked. I found it quite comfortable to wear too.

DSC_0924

I’ve been wanting a very warm, yellow-based nude brown lipstick for a long time, and I finally found it in the lipstick called Kinkster. The picture doesn’t do the colour justice, but you’ll see it in action soon. This lipstick is apparently from some nude lipstick collection I didn’t know about, but I’m really glad I found it.

DSC_0990

I decided to get another shade from the Bronzing collection. This is the shade A La Plage and it’s a lustre finish lipstick, which I haven’t owned from MAC before. It’s quite sheer and glossy, which is the complete opposite of what I usually go for when it comes to lipstick, but as I wrote earlier on I’m kind of into a glossy lip these days, and this shade is really pretty.

DSC_0921

Last, but not least, I had to have the MAC Maker Barbie collaboration lipstick. I loved Barbies as a child, and this is the perfect Barbie pink lipstick. This is not a colour I usually wear, but I like it a lot more than I thought I would.

NYX haul (mainly eyeliners)

DSC_0996

I don’t why, but I’ve been purchasing a lot of eyeliners lately (there are more to come), and in all different kinds of colours. I guess, I just love a coloured eyeliner in the waterline, and I want one to match every single eye look that I can imagine. I love NYX lip liners (a bought another one of those too; the Suede Matte lip liner in the shade Clinger), so I thought I would try out some of the different eyeliner formulas as well. I got two of the Faux Whites eyeliners, which I’ve been wanting to try for so long. I got the shades Seashell (pale pink) and Lavender Blush (pale lavender). I also purchased three of the slim eyeliners; I got the shades Light Brown, Lavender Glitter, and Sapphire. The shade names kind of speaks for themselves. And the last set of eyeliner that I bought, are the Vivid Brights eyeliners. I think they might be new, and they were made in relation to Pride. I chose the shades Love (sky blue shimmer), Snatched (red shimmer), She Bang (orange shimmer), and Hot Dang (chartreuse shimmer). The only non-liner product that I purchased this time around is another Sweet Cheeks matte creamy powder blush. I really like the yellow one I bought recently, and even though it might not look like it in the picture, this shade called Summer Breeze is a very pretty terracotta orangy colour.

5 favourites – May

By tomorrow it’ll officially be summer (calendar-wise), and I’m really excited about that. Especially because the weather has gotten warmer and sunnier. Things are also looking up when it comes to the lock down; lots of things are opening up again, and I might be going in to work again soon. I actually went to work last Monday, but I wasn’t teaching, but hopefully soon I will. I had so many favourites this month, but I managed to narrow them down to just five, so here they are.

DSC_4220

RCMA No-Color powder: I bought this powder about two years ago, and I did a first impressions post on it. I liked it back then, but I didn’t find it to be anything particularly special, and I kind of forgot about it. However, I recently dug out forgotten products from my make-up collection with the intent of using them to find out whether I wanted to keep them or not, and I definitely found some duds, but I also rediscovered really good products e.g. this powder. I don’t know what have changed, but I’m suddenly really loving this powder.

DSC_0712

MAC Rose-gilded eyeshadow palette: I briefly mentioned this palette in my latest haul, and I wrote that I would be talking more about it soon. The time has come. This palette has two fantastic eyeshadow formulas that are different to the regular MAC eyeshadow formulas. The formulas are called creamy matte and molten foil and both are super pigmented and very blendable. The shades are stunning too, and I think I’ve created some beautiful looks with this palette (which I’ll be posting soon).

DSC_0245

Fenty Beauty Sun Stalk’r – Instant Warmth bronzer (shade: Inda Sun): I had a feeling that this bronzer would become a favourite. There’s not much to say about this product other than the formula is great; it blends out beautifully and looks stunning on the skin.

DSC_1137

Earring holder: I bought this earring holder from Flying Tiger earlier this month, and it holds up to 48 pairs of earrings. I love having most of my earrings in one place (except for the really big ones), and it spins so it’s easy to get to every single pair.

Unlock

Unlock (game): I love board games and card games (I guess this is a hybrid), and I tried Unlock for the first time at a board game café in February and thought it was a lot of fun. It’s an escape room kind of game, so if you like those, you’ll most definitely like Unlock. There are 7 different versions and this is the newest version (Epic Adventures). I bought it for a casual at-home date night with my boyfriend, and we both really enjoyed playing this game.

Small collective Zalando haul

I purchased a few things from Zalando over the past month or so that I thought I would share with you in this little collective haul.

Beige flettede kitten heel sandaler - Stradivarius

I’d been wanting these cute heels from Stradivarius since I first saw them, but they kept selling out in this beige colour (they also came in light green and light blue, but I’m not sure if they’re still available). Suddenly they were back in stock and I managed to get them. I can imagine wearing them with so many cute summer outfits.

Hvide Air Force 1 m. regnbuefarvet + lilla og neongule detaljer - Nike

And on to another pair of shoes, and it was love at first sight with these. These Nike Air Force 1’s has my name written all over them; they have rainbow details and purple details, so they were pretty much made for me.

Beige stråtaske formet som muslingeskal - Topshop

I’ve been wanting a straw bag since last summer, and I finally found the one for me; this adorable shell shaped one for Topshop. I’m sure it’s going to be the perfect summer bag.

DSC_0700DSC_0712

And lastly, I purchased the MAC Rose-Gilded eyeshadow palette. I hadn’t really heard anything about this palette, but I don’t think it was available in Scandinavia (maybe not anywhere else in Europe either) when it launched. I’ll be talking more about this palette in an upcoming post, but I can reveal that it is incredible.

New MAC LE collections; Bronzing & Mosaic Masterpiece

DSC_0600

MAC recently launched two new limited edition collections, and I purchased a few items from each collection (obviously). The collections are the Bronzing collection (bronze packaging) and the Mosaic Masterpiece collection (blue packaging).

DSC_0608

The first product I got from the Bronzing collection is the Stobe Face Glaze in the shade Let’s Make Waves. I don’t know if MAC has come out with this product before this collection, but I hadn’t seen it before. I actually wore it for the first time today, and it is such a unique product. It looks wet on the skin, but at the same time it’s super glowy, and it’s absolutely stunning! I’m really excited about this product, and I think it should become a part of MAC’s permanent collection.

DSC_0619

I also got one of the bronzers from the collection. It’s called a Radiant Matte bronzing powder, and I got the lightest shade in Beige-ing Beauty. It’s a very pigmented powder, so a little goes a long way. The shade is really pretty, and I think it looks very nice on the skin.

DSC_0633

And of course I had to get one of the lipsticks. I chose the shade Cote D’Amour which is a bright fuchsia shade in the amplified finish.

DSC_0645

From the Mosaic Masterpiece collection I had to get the Extra Dimension skinfinish. I mean, look at the packaging and the pattern in the actual powder. Gorgeous! The shade is Whisper of Gilt which is a cult favourite that I didn’t already own.

DSC_0654

And of course I had to get a lipstick from this collection as well. This is in the shade Tendercotta and it has a matte finish. I have already worn this, and I love it. It’s pretty much the perfect shade of brown for a lipstick in my opinion.

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.
