Asos haul – including Black Friday

I have an Asos haul to share with you today. It’s a collective haul including things I purchased in the Black Friday sale.

The only clothing item I purchased was this pair of purple velvet joggers from Topshop. I wore them earlier this week, and they’re so comfortable; perfect to wear at home, when you’re on maternity leave.

I picked up two pairs of shoes. The blue boots are from Topshop as well, and I love them. I’ve already worn them several times, and they’re really comfy. They’re pretty much the perfect everyday boots. The pink metallic chunky Mary Janes are from Asos Design, and they’re so cute. I love a fun, chunky, yet comfy pair of shoes.

I also bought some earrings. All of these are from Asos design, and I just thought they were cute.

Let’s move on the make-up. These first four products are all from NYX. I picked up another Ultimate eye paint. This one is in the shade Calling All Allies, and it’s a pretty periwinkle shade. I also got two more Ultimate Glow Shots liquid eyeshadows. They’re in the shades 01 Blueberry Baller and 02 Kiwi Killa. The last NYX product I decided to try is the Smooth Whip matte lip cream in the shade Pillow Fight.

I’ve been wanting to try the e.l.f Cosmetics Power Grip primer for quite a while, and when I saw that it was back in stock on Asos’ website, I immediately put it in my basket. It’s a very effective gripping primer, and I do really like it so far.

Speaking of primers, I’m so glad I picked up the Huda Beauty Glowish Blur Jam silicone-free smoothing primer, because it’s been one of my go-to primers ever since I tried it for the first time. It’s has a very unique, smooth texture, and I love that it feels cooling on the skin.

For once, I purchased a couple of Benefit holiday sets/products. This is the Benefit Blush ‘n Brush Delivery set, which comes with a mini blush in the shade Terra Spark and a brush. How cute is that blush with the little reindeer ‘stamp’.

I also got the other holiday cheek palette from Benefit (I included the other one in this haul). This one is called the Cheek Party Package palette, and it includes two blushes, Shellie and Dandelion, and the Dandelion Twinkle highlighter. It’s just so pretty and super wearable.

The last few products in this haul are from Charlotte Tilbury. This is the Superstar Glow Mini Beauty Light Wand Duo, which comes with the Spotlight highlighter and the Pinkgasm blush. I’m really excited to try these.

And last, but most certainly not least, the Charlotte Tilbury Hypnotising Pop Shots eyeshadow in Cosmic Rocks. This is an expensive eyeshadow, but it’s oh so stunning, and I’m glad to have it in my collection.

5 favourites – December

Happy New Year! Another year has come to an end, and what a year! My biggest dream came true this year, when I became a mother in October, so it’s safe to say that 2022 was my favourite year so far. I’m super excited about 2023; I’m sure it’s going to be a great year as well with many exciting things to come. But before we jump into the new year, let’s say goodbye to the old one with some December favourites.

Black velvet trousers (H&M): I haven’t hauled these trousers yet, but I have already featured them in a couple of outfit posts. They’re just super comfy, and you can easily dress them both up and down.

Silver glitter chunky heels (Monki): When I saw these heels from Monki, I just had to have them. They’re the perfect pair of party shoes, and I’ve worn them for all the festive occasions this holiday season.

Huda Beauty Glowish Blur Jam silicone-free smoothing primer: Here’s another item I haven’t hauled yet, but I’ve already worn this primer a lot. It has a very unique texture and it’s cooling on the skin, which I really like. And it really is smoothing as the name suggests.

e.l.f. Cosmetics Halo Glow Liquid Filter (shade: 1 Fair): I’ve been wanting to try this product since I first saw it. I love the Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood Flawless Filter, and this is a great dupe for it. It actually has a little more coverage than the Charlotte Tilbury one, and it just looks stunning on the skin.

Urban Decay Hydromaniac Tinted Glow Hydrator (shade: 20 Fair): I purchased this foundation a couple of months ago, but I didn’t get into using it until recently, and I’m really enjoying it. It has the perfect amount of coverage and I really like the finish.

Collective haul – clothes, shoes, and make-up (October) + Christmas clothes

I have a collective haul to share with you today. It’s a mix of clothes, shoes, and make-up, and most of the items were purchased in the October, but I’m also going to include the few Christmas clothing pieces I bought this year. Let’s begin with those.

I purchased three Christmas jumpers this year. This first one is from my local supermarket’s brand VRS. I thought the sequin snowman was cute.

I’ve already posted an outfit with this cardigan. It’s from Pieces.

I’ve also already posted a look with this Grinch sweatshirt. It’s from H&M, and I love the Grinch green colour of it.

Last Christmas clothing item I picked up this year are these leggings. They’re from a brand called JDY, and they’re super comfy.

Now let’s move on to the stuff I bought back in October. I got two cardigans from H&M. I don’t own a lot of cardigans, but I thought they would be practical to wear when breastfeeding.

I also purchased two shirts from H&M; a navy corduroy one and a denim one.

I also picked up two more nursing tops from H&M MAMA. I really like these nursing tops from H&M MAMA, and I got them in quite a few colours now.

When I saw these chunky silver platform heels from Monki, I knew I had to have them. They’re perfect for the party season, and I’ve already worn them to a family Christmas party.

I recently picked up these two pairs of bauble earrings from my local supermarket. I love festive earrings.

And now let’s talk make-up. I picked up four items from the Essence Pumpkins Pretty Please! autumn collection. I got the Pumpkins Pretty Please! eyeshadow palette in 01 Impressed, Blessed & Pumpkin Obsessed, the Pumpkins Pretty Please! colour-changing lip oil in 01 Pumpkin Kisses & Autumn Wishes, the Pumpkins Pretty Please! matte lipstick in 01 Sweeter Than Pumpkin Pie (which I wore here), and the Pumpkins Pretty Please! matte nail polish in 02 Autumn Leaves & Pumpkins, Please?.

How fun is this Shrek X I Heart Revolution collection? I picked up the Transformation lip balm in Transformation and two lipsticks in Donkey and Gingy. I wore Gingy earlier this month, and I really liked it.

I also got the Shrek X I Heart Revolution Gingy highlighter even though it’ll be two dark on me. But just look how cute it is!

Lastly, I have four indie eyeshadow palettes to share with you that I’m super excited about. I made my first ever purchase from GlossGods Cosmetics. I picked up two of their newer palettes; the Vintage Glam Remixed palette, which is a stunning purple palette, and the Look For Rainbows palette, which is a beautiful all shimmer palette. I’m so excited to play with these.

And the very last two palettes (and items) in this haul are the Oden’s Eye Christmas Eve palette and Merry Christmas palette, which I featured in my latest 5 favourites post, because they’re that good. I’ve falling in love with Oden’s Eye eyeshadows this year, and the colour stories of these particular two palettes really speak to me. They’re absolutely gorgeous, and the quality is amazing!

5 favourites – October

Happy Halloween! I can’t believe that October has already come to an end. It’s the month I’d been looking forward to almost all year, because it was the month of my due date, and therefore the month that I gave birth to my baby, who turned out to be a gorgeous little girl. I’m so excited for the months to come and to see my daughter grow. I’m also very excited about Christmas coming up soon; I can’t wait to start decorating and to wear my Christmas jumpers again (and to dress my baby girl in cute Christmas clothes). Most of my favourites this month are related to pregnancy and birth, though still fashion related, and even though I have several baby related favourites, I won’t be including those on the blog.

Navy flared leggings (H&M MAMA): I’ve been loving these super comfy flared leggings throughout the last part of my pregnancy, and they’re also what I wore to the hospital the day I gave birth.

Nursing tops (H&M MAMA): For the past two weeks (or just under) I’ve been loving these nursing tops. They just make breastfeeding a lot easier.

Fluffy slippers (Monki): I brought these slippers to the hospital, and I’m so glad I did. I’ve even continued to wear them at home; especially when I get up to breastfeed in the middle of the night.

Pandora necklace w. Disney pendants: I think this is my new favourite necklace. My parents gave it to me as a “new mum” present (the heart shaped Minnie Mouse pendant says “Mum”), and it’s so special to me.

Maybelline Instant Anti Age Perfector 4-in-1 Glow (shade: 00 Fair Light): I do have one make-up favourite this month. I’d been wanting to try this product for quite a while, and I’m not disappointed. It’s a similar product to the Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood Flawless Filter, but slightly more pigmented. It’s really pretty on the skin, and I kind of like the sponge applicator.

Collective haul (September 2022)

It’s time for a collective haul from last month. This haul is a bit of a mix of everything.

I love a roll neck top, so I had to pick up a couple of bump friendly ones. The blue one is from Pieces Maternity, and the purple one is from Vero Moda Maternity. I prefer the fit and look of the blue one, but I love the colours of both.

I’m impatiently waiting for my baby to arrive, and when it does, I really hope that I’ll be able to breastfeed it. So I need some nursing friendly clothes and picked up this two pack of nursing tops from Anna Field MAMA. They’re not my usually style of top, but I have to dress a little more practical, when the baby comes.

These navy joggers are also from Anna Field MAMA, and they’re so comfortable. They’re ready and packed in my hospital bag.

This pair of stretchy navy flared leggings from H&M MAMA has been a favourite of mine lately. They’re super comfy as well.

The last maternity clothes I’ve bought is a two pack of black tights from H&M MAMA. They became kind of necessary when the weather got colder.

I purchased these pink, fluffy slippers from Monki purely to add to my hospital bag, so I would have something cosy to wear on my feet. And that’s enough maternity and hospital talk for now. Let’s move on to make-up.

I haven’t really heard anything about the Maybelline Green Edition Balmy Lip Blush lipsticks, but I was still interested in trying them. I picked up the shades Bonfire and Dusk, a red and a rosy pink, but because I’ve purchased so many new lip products recently, I haven’t gotten around to wearing them yet.

And speaking of lip products, I picked up these two from MAC. I love the packaging of the new MAC Maker lipsticks, so I purchased the @MANUELEMAMELI one, which is a very pretty matte nude shade. I also picked up the yellow lipglass from the MAC X Stranger Things collection. It’s called Marvelous Max, and I thought it would be great to make a lip colour warmer.

I got this Prepped & Ready Lip Prep Kit as a free gift with purchase. It includes a Lipglass Clear, a Lip Scrubtious in Sweet Vanilla, and a Prep + Prime Lip. I didn’t own the Lipglass Clear, but I know a lot of people love it. I have another scent of the Lip Scrubtious, so I know I love that product, and I love everything vanilla scented. And I use Prep + Prime Lip everytime I do my make-up, so it’s nice to have another back-up.

Lastly, and a bit randomly, I got the Glisten Cosmetics Chroma Flakes in Nebula. It’s a stunning iridescent purple glitter, and as you know, I’m really into these kinds of products these days.

Asos haul (20% or 25% off everything)

This is an Asos haul from August. I got everything either 20% off or 25% off. It’s a mix of everything; clothes, shoes, accessories, and make-up.

I only have two clothing pieces to show you, and you’ve already seen me wear them in outfit posts. Both of these beautiful dresses are from COLLUSION.

I also purchased two pairs of shoes both from Asos Design. I’m really excited about the floral loafers; I think they’re so cute and perfect for autumn. The mule wedges are more summery, but I just loved the colours.

Let’s move on to accessories. I love a bucket hat, however I haven’t really worn them this past summer. I still thought this multicoloured one from Asos Design was cute. The sunglasses are also from Asos Design and so are three out of the four pairs of earrings as well. The last pair of earrings are from Vintage Supply. I just love fun sunglasses and earrings.

And now on to make-up. I haven’t heard or seen anything about the Rimmel Lasting Finish compact foundation, but I thought I would give it a try. I picked mine up in the shade 01 Fair Porcelain, and so far I really like this product. I also decided to get the I Heart Revolution x Disney Fairytale Jelly Eye Shimmer in Pua (from Moana) to try another formula of eyeshadow, however, I haven’t worn it on my eyes yet.

These last make-up products are probably the most interesting to me. I haven’t tried it yet, but I’m really excited to try the MAC Fix+ Stay Over setting spray. I picked up the mini size. I’ve also been wanting to try the new MAC Powder Kiss Velvet Blur Slim Sticks and picked up the shade Devoted To Danger. I’m wearing it in my next make-up post, and I loved it. In my 5 favourites post that I posted yesterday, I featured the Huda Beauty #FAUXFILTER Luminous Matte liquid concealer, so you now how much I enjoy that product. And lastly, I picked up a couple more shades of the e.l.f. Cosmetics No Budge shadow sticks. They’re called Rich Amethyst and Copper Chic.

5 favourites – August

August was some month. The weather was so hot throughout most of the month, I had a birthday and Covid (at the same time might I add – not very fun), and I definitely started to feel the weight and tiredness of being in the third trimester of pregnancy. But thankfully, I only have two more work days left before my maternity leave begins, and I can’t wait! I’m really looking forward to slowing down in September, and I’m going to try to enjoy the last bit of my pregnancy. Even though August was tough in many ways, it also had some good moments, and I discovered a lot of favourites as well. As always, I did manage to narrow them down to five, so let’s talk about them.

Pastel coloured tie dye Teva sandals: I love my multicoloured Teva sandals that I purchased last year, so I decided to get another pair this summer, and I’ve loved these ones as well. Teva just makes such comfortable sandals!

Oden’s Eye SolmÃ¥ne II eyeshadow palette: I posted my first look using this palette yesterday, but there’ll be more looks to come, because I’ve really enjoyed using this palette. The colour story is so pretty, and the quality is great. I’m going to keep an eye on Oden’s Eye from now on.

Pat McGrath Labs Dark Star mascara: I’ve received a lot of mascara samples as free gifts with purchases, and it’s a great way of trying out new mascaras and especially more expensive ones. For the past couple of weeks I’ve been using this Pat McGrath one, and I love it! It’s too bad that it’s so darn expensive.

This Is Us (TV series): The one good thing that came out of me having Covid earlier this month was that I finally had time to start watching ‘This Is Us’, which is a series I’ve been wanting to watch for a while. I was intrigued from the very first episode, and I’m almost done with season two now. I’m really happy that there are six seasons in total, because I’m not done learning about the Pearsons.

Apple AirPods: I wasn’t sure if I was ever going to be and AirPods person, but I got a pair for my birthday, and I’ve already used them a lot. I also think they’ll come in handy when the baby comes; wires and babies are probably not a great match.

Collective haul (May)

It’s time for my collective haul from May. This haul consists of clothes, shoes, and make-up. Let’s begin with the clothes.

I purchased four dresses from Monki, and I’ve already posted outfits with all four. Monki has been my go-to non-maternity brand throughout my pregnancy, because they make a lot of loose and/or oversized clothes especially dresses. Also, Monki is one of my favourite brands in general; they have the best prints and colour combos.

The only other piece of clothing in this haul is this pair of pleated trousers, which is also from Monki, and I’ve also posted an outfit with these already.

I featured these violet Crocs in my last 5 favourites post with a mix of different Jibbitz. I purchased some of the Jibbitz (the bottom two sets) at the same time as the Crocs, and some of them I already had. I also purchased two sets of Disney Jibbitz, which are now decorating my black Crocs sandals that I use indoors.

Let’s move on to make-up. The main reason why I keep buying the I Heart Revolution X Disney Fairytale palettes is the packaging. However, this Tangled one is actually not bad. I really liked the look I created with this palette.

Next up is a mix of different products. I got the Essence Fix & Last Make-up Gripping Jelly Primer and the MAC Wild Cherry Pro Palette Eye Shadow X 2. I thought the little MAC palette would be nice for travelling. I also picked up two highlighters; the Catrice Glow Lover Oil-Infused highlighter in 010 Glowing Peony and the Pixi + Hello Kitty Glow-y Powder in Sweet Glow.

Here’s a closer look at two highlighters. They are both pinky shades and very pretty.

Essence recently launched a bunch of new gel nail colours, so I picked up a lot of shades; 17 I Lilac You, 23 Tangerine Ahead, 27 Hey Sand Tropez, 34 Love U So Mocha, 41 Violet Voltage, 45 Lavender Vibes Only, 48 Squeeze The Day, and 49 Save Water drink Lime.

Lastly, I picked up a few things from Beauty Bay.

I picked up the new By BEAUTY BAY Bright 2.0 16 Colour Palette. There are also 42 and 9 colour versions, but I liked the 16 colour one the best.

I also purchased another e.l.f. Cosmetics Putty blush. This is in the shade Fiji, and it’s a beautiful red shade.

And then I got my first two products from About-Face. I picked up the Light Lock Highlight Fluid in Fight Or Flight and the About-Face Light Lock Stick in Frenzy. It was love at first application with the liquid highlighter; it’s so stunning! I also like the highlighter stick, however, it’s very glittery, so I don’t think it goes with all make-up looks. But it is pretty nonetheless.

5 favourites – July

Today is the last day of July, which is also the last day of my summer holiday. I had such a nice, relaxing and long summer holiday this year, which was perfect considered my current state:) And I only have to work for a month before my maternity leave begins. This month I have a mixed bag of favourites, so let’s talk about them.

Maternity denim shorts: At some point I’ll be posting a H&M MAMA haul, but I had to feature these denim shorts in this 5 favourites post. These are really comfy, and they’re the perfect length. I’ve worn these a lot on hot summer days.

Violet classic Crocs: I never thought that I would actually purchase and wear a pair of classic Crocs, but I love the sandal version, and now that I’m pregnant, they’re just so easy to slip in to when taking down the garbage or when going grocery shipping. And I love that you can customise them with all different kinds of Jibbitz. This pair is decked out with all different kinds of fun and colourful ones of course, and I think it looks so cute!

Tarte Lights, Camera, Lashes mascara: This is not a new product in the beauty world, and I remember people talking about it years ago, but I hadn’t tried it until early this month, and I really like it. It’s not the most volumising mascara, but it doesn’t transfer or smudge, which is such a big plus for me. I also think it looks really nice on the lashes.

Thor: Love and Thunder (film): My boyfriend and I are big MCU fans, so we went to watch the newest Thor film last week, and we both really enjoyed it. I think Christian Bale’s Gorr is one of the creepiest Marvel villains so far.

Floor fan: This last favourite might be a bit strange, but this floor fan has been a life saver on the hot summer days, we’ve had in Denmark in July. I’m not a huge fan of super warm weather anyways, but now that I’ve tried being pregnant in super warm weather, a floor fan is a necessity!

Collective haul October part 1

Today’s haul is part 1 of a collective haul from October last year. This part includes clothes, shoes, and accessories.

The clothes part consists of two pairs of trousers. The brown corduroy trousers are from H&M, and the pink, orange and brown patterned ones are from PULL&BEAR. I recently posted an outfit featuring the PULL&BEAR pair.

I featured these black Crocs sandals in my 2021 November favourites post though at that time they were decorated with Christmas Jibbits. However, I actually purchased these 90’s inspired Jibbits at the same time as I purchased the Crocs, and these are living on them right now. I wear these indoors daily.

The rest of this haul are accessories and I purchased all of them from Asos. This bag is from Asos Design, and I just loved the colours and the shape.

These sage green tights are also from Asos Design, and I really like these, but I like all coloured tights.

Next up – jewellery. The first two pc of earrings are from Reclaimed Vintage, and I especially like the green ones. The rhinestone ones and the gold hoops are both from Asos Design, and the ring is from Big Metal London. I’ve worn the ring quite a bit.

Last item in part 1 of this collective haul is this pretty hair clip. It’s also from Asos Design.
