It’s time for another H&M haul, and it’s a bit of a mix of everything.
Swinsuit season might be over (at least in Denmark), but why not stock up on swimsuits to wear next summer now that they’re on sale. I’ve been wanting a bikini with highwaist bottoms for years, and I couldn’t resist this cute red, pink, and white checked one. I’ve had the teal and pink swimsuit in my saved section for a long time, and now I finally decided to get it. It’s so ’80s and I love it!
I don’t wear a lot of black, but I thought it would be nice to own a little black slip dress.
As you might have noticed, I’m a sucker for graphic T-shirts, and how cute is this Pringles one! I love Pringles and I love the colour red, so this was a no brainer purchase for me.
I haven’t played around with the neon trend that much, but I thought this sweatshirt was really fun. I really like the ombré effect and the high neck.
I love everything about this top; it’s has a high neck line, it’s zebra print, and it’s mesh. It’s going to be a great layering piece.
Last thing in this H&M haul are these cream coloured cropped wide leg corduroy trousers. I love everything corduroy, and I believe that I can wear these during all four seasons.
My family and I went on our annual day-long second hand shopping trip during our summer holiday, and here’s what I bought.
Clothes wise I bought one top and two midi skirts. All three pieces are very autumnal/wintry, so I probably won’t be wearing them for a little while.
This belt came with the black skirt, and I love the rose detail on the buckle.
When it comes to shoes, I really hit the jackpot on this trip. All four pairs were unused, and they were all so affordable. So far I’ve only worn the colourful heels, and they were so cute. I’m really excited about wearing the other three pairs as well.
Over the summer holidays, I went to several flea markets, and here’s a few things that I found.
Big hair clips was all the rage last summer, but I’m still not over them, so I added this fun tortoise shell like one to my rather large collection of hair clips. I’ve already shown you the cuff link ring, but I also found a cactus pendant and the cutest Revlon nail varnish pin.
My mum found this amazing dress from the ’70s. She bought it from an older lady who told her that she had found the fabric and then had someone make a dress out of it for her. It’s so nice when clothes have a story, and I love that this dress is one of a kind.
Over the past couple of months, I’ve collected some affordable make-up products from Essence, L.A. Girl, and Revolution.
Essence often come out with limited edition collections, and I thought this Berry on collection looked really pretty. I purchased the two matte liquid lipsticks; they’re in the shades 01 Berry Nice and 02 Berry Beautiful. I also purchased the highlighter which is called 01 Berry on My Mind!, and it’s a pretty pink shade.
I’ve also bought a bunch of products from L.A. Girl and a single product from Revolution. From L.A. Girl I’ve purchased three coloured mascaras; turquoise, bright blue, and purple. The only products from this haul that I’ve tried so far are the Shockwave Neon liners; I’ve worn the yellow one (Screamin’) and the green one (Gotcha), but there’s also a bright teal one (Fresh) and a purple one (Vivid). So far I’m quite impressed by these liners. The last product I’ve got from L.A. Girl is the PRO.Color Foundation Mixing Pigment in White; I want to try to lighten certain foundations. The very last product in this haul is the Revolution Vivid Baked highlighter in Matte Lights. As the name suggests it’s a matte highlighter, which is something I haven’t really tried before, so I’m excited to see what it looks like on the skin.
July has come to an end which means that my summer holiday is now over. I spent the last three weeks relaxing with my family, which is why I haven’t blogged much this past month, but now I’m back home, I start working again tomorrow, and I’ll also be blogging regularly again. I love summer holidays, but I’m also the type of person who’s excited to get back to work. But before that happens, here’s my July favourites.
Cufflink ring: I went to several flea markets and second hand stores this summer and hauls will be coming up. One of my favourite flea market finds is this silver ring made of a cufflink. The woman who sold it to me made it herself, and there’s only two of them in world, since cufflinks come in sets of two:)
Homemade jewellery: My sisters and I went crazy with jewellery making this summer, and these are the bracelets and ankle bracelets I made. I’ve worn different combinations of these almost everyday these past three weeks, and I’ll probably continue to do so for the rest of the summer.
Jeffree Star Cosmetics Jawbreaker palette: I don’t think I’ve ever been as excited about an eyeshadow palette than I was for this one. 2019 has been the year of colourful eyeshadows for me, and this palette is absolutely stunning. It was one of the palettes I brought with me on summer holiday, and even though I’ve used it a lot, I still haven’t tried out half of the shades. I can’t wait to play even more with this palette.
Ofra Cosmetics x Nikkietutorials Glazed Donut highlighter: This highlighter is just gorgeous! The colour is perfect and it looks stunning on the skin. Definitely my most used highlighter in July.
Vintage Shoes – Caroline Cox: I started reading this book years ago, and now I finally had time to finish it. I’ve been obsessed with shoes since my early teenage years, and this book tells you all you need to know about shoes from the 20. century. It was such an inspiring read.
I’ve purchased a few random items recently, and I thought I would put them together in a mini haul.
I’ve added a third pair of Nike Cortez sneakers to my shoe collection. I instantly fell in love with this colour combo, and I can’t wait to style them in a bunch of different ways.
I’ve also purchased another pair of comfy sandals in a dark brown colour.
Ever since I watched Pretty in Pink for the first time, I’ve wanted a bolo tie. Now I finally got one, and I want to wear it Duckie Dale style.
I don’t think I’ve ever been as excited for a Jeffree Star collection than I was for this year’s summer collection.
My jaw literally dropped when I first saw the Jawbreaker palette. Have you ever seen anything this beautiful! I’ve only played with this palette once so far, but I’m already obsessed.
I’ve also purchased the Mini Breaker palette. I love the concept of mini palettes, and the colours in this one are stunning.
I’ve never tried the Supreme Frost highlighters before, but when I saw the shade Diamond Wet swatched, I knew I had to give it a try.
Last, but most certainly not least, I purchased four of the limited edition Velour liquid lipsticks. The shades are (from top to bottom) Fully Nude, Strawberry Crush, Yes Ma’am, and Purple Urkle. The colours are brighter in real life and oh so pretty.
