5 favourites – November

Yes! December is finally here. Well, by tomorrow it is. November just flew by, which I don’t mind, because I’m just waiting for December to arrive anyways. So let’s just jump right to it and talk about some favourites from the month of November.

Black Crocs sandals w. Christmas Jibbitz: I never thought that I would get myself a pair of Crocs, and I still don’t think that I would get a pair of original Crocs, but I really like this sandal version. This black pair which is now decorated with Christmas themed Jibbitz I wear as indoors slippers, and I think they’re adorable, super festive, and really comfortable.

Wet n Wild Prime & Set Prime Focus The Impossible Primer: I haven’t hauled most of the things in this haul including this primer from Wet n Wild. However, I really like this primer, so I had to feature it. It has the texture of a silicone based primer, but it’s silicone free. It feels cooling and soft on the skin and creates a great base for your foundation.

Catrice True Skin Hydrating foundation (shade: 004 Neutral Porcelain): Speaking of foundation, this Catrice foundation has been one of my go-to foundations lately. I first purchased it in another shade, but it was a little too light actually (I can make it work though), but this shade is perfect. I love the finish and coverage too. It’s just such a good and affordable foundation.

Wishful Honey Whip Peptide moisturizer: I also have a skincare favourite this month. I’ve heard great things about this moisturiser from Wishful, and I don’t know if it’s only due to this product, but my skin has looked a lot better lately; better than it has in a very long time. This is a mini, but I might get the full size at some point.

Dead Poets Society (film): I know, how can I not have watched this film until now? Trust me, I’ve been wanting to watch this classic for years. Now I finally have, and I loved it. Being a teacher myself, this film really got to me. It’s such an inspiring story and a beautiful film.

5 favourites – October

Happy Halloween! I can’t believe that we’ll be in November by toworrow. Time really flies. But at this time of the year, I don’t mind, because it only means that we’re getting closer and closer to December and Christmas time, which you might have noticed is my favourite time of the year. But first, I’ll be celebrating Halloween tonight by watching “The Nightmare Before Christmas” while eating Halloween sweets, and I’m pretty excited about that as well. But before I get to that I’m going to share a few favourites from the month of October with you.

Converse Run Star Hike pride sneakers: These have been my go-to sneakers this past month. They’re the most comfortable Converse I’ve ever owned, and I love that they’re a plain white with all the rainbow details. They just go with so many outfits.

Laura Mercier Translucent Loose setting powder: I’m still way behind on hauls, so I haven’t posted anything about this powder yet. However, I get why people love this powder, because so do I. It just looks and feels so smooth on the skin all day. I’m so glad that I finally decided to try it out.

Catrice HD Active Performance Freezing spray: I don’t often steer away from Urban Decay All Nighter when it comes to setting sprays, but I have to say that I’ve really been enjoying this spray from Catrice. As it says on the lid, it’s very cooling and refreshing, and I also think it makes a difference when it comes to keeping the make-up in place all day.

Celestial Seasonings Sleepytime Vanilla tea: This tea has actually been a favourite for over a year, maybe almost two years, and I can’t believe that I haven’t featured it in a favourites post until now. It doesn’t contain caffeine, so it’s the perfect evening tea, and I drink a cup most evenings. And if you like vanilla, you would like this.

About Time (film): I’d heard and read that this was supposed to be a really good film, but for some reason I wasn’t intrigued by the time travelling premise, but when I visited my parents last week my mum had it on DVD and we decided to watch it, and I’m glad we did. Even though the time travelling is a bit strange, it’s a great romantic story, and it you like those, you would probably like this film.

Zalando haul (June)

Today I have a Zalando haul to share with you. It’s a mix of clothes, shoes, accessories, and make-up. I purchased these items in June.

I have this style of skirt from Monki in quite a few colour ways and patterns, but I had to add this cute, floral one to my wardrobe as well. It’s just the perfect summer skirt in my opinion.

I really like this style of vest/tank top, so I purchased this two pack from Monki on sale with an orange and a black one.

Monki makes really cute shoes, and these two pairs of strappy block heel sandals are no exception. I loved wearing both pairs this past summer.

I also purchased another pair of strappy sandals. These are from Mango, and they’re really cute as well.

The last pair of shoes in this haul I featured in my June favourites, and they’re one of my best summer purchases. They’re from Teva, and they are so comfortable, and I’ve worn them so much.

I’d been eyeing these multicoloured rhinestone earrings from Topshop for so long, and when I found them on sale, I had to get them. I’m so glad that I did, because I’ve worn them quite a bit.

In my last haul, I featured the I Heart Revolution x Disney Fairytale Books Ariel/The Little Mermaid collection, and I also mentioned that there would be more Disney make-up in future hauls. This is one of those hauls, because I purchased more I Heart Revolution x Disney Fairytale Books palettes and heart highlighters. First off, we have the Belle/Beauty and the Beast palette and highlighter.

I also purchased the Cinderella palette and highlighter.

And lastly, I purchased the Tiana/The Princess and the Frog palette (the highlighter was too deep for me).

These are the rest of the make-up products. I purchased the Maybelline Fit Me Primer Luminous & Smooth primer, the MAC Studio Fix Sculpt And Shape Contour palette in Light/Medium, the MAC Prep + Prime Transparent finishing powder, and the Pixi On-The-Glow blush in the shade Juicy.

Here’s a closer look at the contour palette. I’ve not been contouring in years, but this palette has gotten me back in to it a little bit. I still don’t contour every day, but I do it sometimes, and I really enjoy using this palette. I really like the setting/finishing powders as well as the contour shades.

Asos haul – shoes, accessories, and make-up

It’s time for another Asos haul. This haul is a mix of shoes, accessories, and make-up.

I’ve purchased two pairs of Converse. These ones are the Chuck Taylor Lift Sunshine sneakers, and I just love the colours. They’re so perfect for ’70s inspired looks.

The other pair that I got are the Run Star Hike pride sneakers. I’ve been wanting a pair of Run Star Hike sneakers, and this rainbow version seemed perfect. They’re so fun and comfortable.

Let’s move on to accessories. I picked up these gold coloured bracelets from Asos’ own brand, because I always seem to miss gold coloured bracelets in my jewellery collection. I’ve worn all of these, and I really like them.

These are the rest of the accessories – all from Asos own brand. My favourites are the lime earrings and the dinosaur key ring (which I’ve been using as a bag charm).

For make-up I’ve got two I Heart Revolution x Disney collections to share with you. The first one is the I Heart Revolution x Disney Fairytale Books palette, heart highlighter, and lipgloss in Ariel/The Little Mermaid.

The palette looks like and opens like a book, and on the left side you get three blushers and three highlighters, and on the right side you get 18 eyeshadows.

And here’s a closer look at the heart highlighter; so pretty.

The second I Heart Revolution x Disney collection that I got is the The Aristocats Marie collection. I picked up the eyeshadow palette and two highlighters.

This is what the palette looks like on the inside. It’s so cute with the little paw prints in the matte eyeshadows.

The two highlighters are called Duchess (a light gold) and Beloved (a light pink). They’re both very pretty. There will be more Disney make-up in upcoming hauls:)

Collective clothing haul: H&M, Zara, Asos, second hand

It’s been a while since the last time I did a clothing haul, so I guess it was about time. This is a collective clothing haul with items from H&M, Zara and Asos, and I also have a few second hand pieces to share with you.

Let’s start with the pieces I purchased from H&M. You’ve already seen the H&M x Lee denim jacket, because I featured it in my 5 favourites post from June. It is still my go to jacket these days. I also purchased the matching jeans. They are described as loose fit mom jeans.

From H&M I also picked up this grey-black oversized T-shirt w. a neon Coca Cola print.

Let’s move on to the Zara pieces now. I purchased another Disney T-shirt dress, because they’re just so cute.

And it was not the only Disney item that I purchased from Zara. I also got this cute Mickey and Pluto T-shirt.

The last few things I bought from Zara were a bucket hat and some letter brooches. You might guess that these letters are significant to me.

In this Asos haul, I featured a pair of pastel patchwork joggers from Daisy street, but they didn’t have the matching sweatshirt at the time. They eventually got the sweatshirt, so I had to purchase, so I would have another matching sweatsuit.

And speaking of matching sweatsuits, in that same haul I featured a New Girl Order x Hello Kitty sweashirt, and now I’ve purchased the matching joggers for that sweatshirt, so I actually have two matching pastel sweatsuits.

*NSYNC is my favourite boyband, so I had to have this T-shirt from Reclaimed Vintage.

The last item I bought from Asos is a pair of sandals. These rhinestone sandals are from Asos’ own brand, and I really like them, however my Tevas have stolen the spotlight when it comes to sandals, so I haven’t worn these as much as I thought I would.

Lastly, I have a few second hand pieces to show you. These are the first pieces I purchased after the country slowly started to open up again. One of the pieces is this dusty blue blazer. The fabric is quite interesting, and I love the embroidery.

I also bought this burgundy leather jacket. I’ve never been a leather jacket kind of person, but there was something I liked about this one.

And last but not least, I found these black, white, and red loafers in a second hand store and thought they were kind of fun. And I’ve been seeing loafers everywhere lately, so I guess they’re in style.

5 favourites – June

I can’t believe that the first summer month has already gone by, but at least we’ve had some lovely summer weather lately. My summer holiday officially begins in a few days, and I so excited to get some time off. Other than being a great month weatherwise, June was also a great month when it comes to favourites. I have so many favourites this month, and it was really difficult to narrow them down to just five, but these are my picks.

H&M x Lee denim jacket: I don’t think I’ve hauled this denim jacket yet (and there are more items in this post that I haven’t hauled yet, because I’m so behind on hauls), but this has been my go-to jacket this past month. I’ve worn is several days a week, and it’s just such a good length/fit and wash.

Multicoloured Teva sandals: I haven’t hauled these sandals yet either, but they’re a more recent purchase. I needed a pair of comfortable flat sandals that I could actually walk in, and I’d heard that Teva sandals were really comfortable, and they are. I’ve worn these almost daily since I got them a couple of weeks ago, and they might not be the prettiest sandals, but I don’t care. Comfort wins in this case. And I do think that they’re kind of cute with the different coloured straps.

Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Freeze: And here’s yet another product I haven’t hauled yet, but which I enjoy so much that I had to feature it. In my May favourites, I featured a soapy brow styler from Essence, and I do still really like that product, but the ABH Brow Freeze is better. It might be a pretty pricey product, but a little product goes a long way, and it’s so convenient and easy to use, and it makes the brows look great, so I think it’s worth it.

Luca (film): I watched two new Disney films this month; Raya and the Last Dragon and Luca. Even though I liked Raya and the Last Dragon, Luca is the one that stole my heart. I didn’t really have any expectations to the film, but I was very pleasantly surprised by how good it actually was. It’s the perfect summer animated film.

Zitti E Buoni – Måneskin (song): I’ve expressed my love for Eurovision several times, so I was excited to watch the contest this year after the break last year do to the pandemic. There were more than one entry I would be happy to see win the contest (Iceland and Switzerland were among my favourites), but Måneskin from Italy were the perfect winners. I love their winning song and their sound and look in general, so much so that I purchased their album Teatro d’ira: Vol. I, which is great too. As a Dane, I also enjoy that their band name is the danish word for moonlight.

Rather large collective Monki haul

It’s time for a rather large collective Monki haul. There are a lot of great pieces in this haul that I’m really excited about.

First off, I have a couple of co-ords to show you. I love a good co-ord or matching set, and this blue and white checked denim one is so cute. The jeans are wide leg and slightly cropped, which I love, and the jacket is cropped, which is not my go-to style of jacket, but it’s perfect with the jeans.

I think my heart skipped a beat, when I first saw this amazing floral co-ord. The floral pattern is so beautiful and bold, and I love the colours! I’ve worn this co-ord a couple of times already, and I loved wearing it.

I’ve purchased two more blazers (as if I don’t have enough blazers already). I’d been looking at the pink corduroy blazer for a while and decided to get it, when I found it on sale. The beige checked blazer is one of my newest purchases in this haul, and it was also on sale.

The last two tops in this haul are a white balloon sleeve button up shirt and a plain green T-shirt. A white button up shirt is a classic piece, and I really liked the subtle details on this one. And I already have a few other solid coloured plain T-shirts from Monki that I really like, so I decided to add this green one to my collection. These T-shirts are so soft.

The last pair of trousers in this haul are these purple stretchy corduroy/velvet cropped trousers. I’ve just been wearing these at home as loungewear, and they’re really comfy.

I’ve purchased four summer dresses, and I’ve already worn three of them. The dress I haven’t worn yet is the first one, which is in the same print as the floral co-ord set, as you can see. It’s so pretty, and I think I’m going to wear it for a special occasion in August. The blue floral dress is similar style wise to the first dress, and I wore the blue one to a graduation celebration two days ago. The white floral dress which is a button up shirt style of dress is the dress I’ve gotten the most wear out of so far. It’s the most comfy, flowy summer dress. The only drawback about this dress is that it shrunk after being washed. I can still wear it, because it’s a loose fitting dress, but I did like it better when it was a bit longer and less fitted. The last dress is a different style to the others, but I really like that one as well. The fabric is a little sheer, but I’ve just worn a white bra and white biker shorts underneath.

Monki makes very cute socks, and these are the two newest pairs in my wardrobe; a light green and white pair with flowers and a lilac pair with ruffles.

And last, but not least, I have purchased three pairs of shoes from Monki, and I love all of them. In a March Zalando haul, I featured a pair of denim boots from Monki, which I also featured in my May 5 favourites, and I love those denim boots so much that I decided to get a pair of denim mules for summer. I also got a pair of cow print mules, which are so cute and comfortable. And the last pair of shoes is a recent purchase. When Monki started showing these black chunky Mary Janes on the models on their website, I started keeping an eye out for them. When they initially went up on the website they were immediatly sold out in my size, but I kept checking the website the following days, and a couple of days later they were back in my size, and I was one happy girl.

5 favourites – May

The last month of spring is coming to an end and by tomorrow it’ll officially be summer (if you ask the calendar). We are finally getting some warmer weather in Denmark as well, so it’s great timing. Anyways, let’s just get to it. Let’s talk about some favourites from the month of May.

Denim lace up boots: I was not sure how I would feel about these denim lace up (with a zipper on the side) boots from Monki when I first purchased them, but I love them. Denim is a neutral to me, so these boots are perfect for when you feel that neither black, white, or brown shoes go with your outfit.

NYX The Marshmellow primer: I’m sure that I’m not the only one who’s been enjoying this sweet-smelling primer from NYX. It’s popular for a reason; it feels nice and smooth on the skin and it smells great too. It hasn’t only been a favourite of mine for the past month, but for several months now, so I thought it was time to feature it in a favourites post.

Essence Lash Princess false lash effect mascara: I’ve been discovering so many great mascaras lately, this Essence mascara being another one. I’d heard great things about this mascara for years, and I’m so glad that I finally decided to try it. I’ll be posting my first impressions on it at some point where I’ll get in to more details about it.

Essence #pinkandproud Strong soapy brow styler (01 Stronger Than Yesterday!): It’ll still be a while before I get around to posting the haul that includes this soapy brow styler, but I had to include it in this post, because I’ve been loving it. It’s the first soap brow product I’ve tried, and there are probably better ones out there, but I’m still so impressed by the brow look I can create with this, and you can’t beat the price tag!

Kingsman: The Secret Service (film): I’d heard the name of this film, but hadn’t really any idea of what it was really about other than being a spy film, but I was pleasantly surprised by the over the top comedy sequences, and the cast is incredible. I also watched the sequel, and I really liked that one too, but the first one is my favourite. If you like action and comedy together, give this film a go. You won’t regret it.

H&M haul: Lee collab and more

It’s time for a collective H&M haul. It consists of a bit of everything.

Let’s start with the pieces I purchased from the Lee collaboration. I puchased the ’90s wide ultra high waist jeans, the lilac T-shirt, the white T-shirt, and the denim bucket hat. These items are my kind of basics.

I’ve also purchased another pair of jeans. These are a pair of mom jeans with the cutest Mickey Mouse print on them.

I’m really longing for spring and summer, but I’ve only purchased a few spring/summer pieces so far. One of the more summery pieces that I’ve bought is this brown tank top. I puchased a dark yellow tank top and a lilac tank top from H&M last year, and I loved wearing those throughout spring and summer, so I wanted to add this brown one to my spring/summer wardrobe this year.

I’ve purchased two pairs of shoes. I’ve been wanting a pair of white heeled sandals since last summer, and I love this pair from H&M. I found the beige boots in the sale, and even though they’re very simple, they’re very flattering.

Besides the Lee denim bucket hat, I’ve also bought these three hats. I love the black pork pie hat; it’s just such a fun style. The beige wide brim hat is fun too, and the white bucket hat is super cute and summery.

Last, but not least, I got some more pastel coloured socks, because you can never have too many of those:)

5 favourites – March

Another month in lock down has gone by. However, the country has started to slowly open up again, and I went physically to work twice last week, which was great. Working from home isn’t all that fun, but right now I’m in the middle of my easter holiday which I’ve been looking forward to the whole month. Anyways, I had many favourites in March, and it was difficult to narrow them down to five, but here are my picks.

Black chunky boots: The only times I’ve been leaving my apartment these past four months have been to go for a walk, to pick up a parcel, or to go grocery shopping, and for all those occasions my shoes of choice has been these black chunky boots from PULL&BEAR. I really miss wearing all of my shoes, but I have enjoyed wearing these boots a lot.

Essence Brighten Up! Banana powder in 10 Bababanana: I haven’t gotten around to hauling this product yet, but I wanted to feature it anyways, because I’ve been loving this powder to set my under eyes. My favourite undereye setting powder from e.l.f. has been discontinued I think (at least I can’t find it anywhere), so I’ve been on the hunt for alternatives, and this is a great alternative + it’s super affordable too.

BH Cosmetics Blueberry Muffin eyeshadow palette: I know, another product I haven’t hauled yet, but this palette is amazing, so I had to feature it. I’ll show you the inside another time, but the shades are a mix of blues and neutrals, and it is stunning. BH Cosmetics has definitely been on my radar since they released the Naughty palette for holiday 2020.

EOS Toasted Marshmellow lip balm: I love the EOS lip balms, and I’ve had the Toasted Marshmellow one lying around for ages, so when I used up my Vanilla Bean one (which might still be my favourite scent), I started using the Toasted Marshmellow one, and it smells so good. Do I need to say that I love the colour of the packaging as well?

Ear Bisquits (podcast): I had never been listening to podcasts before this month, and I’m really enjoying it. My favourite so far is Ear Bisquits by Rhett and Link, and I knew that I would enjoy this one, because Good Mythical Morning is my favourite Youtube channel. I’m really excited to be listening to more podcasts in the future.
