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.
Here’s what I wore Thursday June 27. I’m loving the Maleficent T-shirt, and the neon green skirt matched it perfectly.

Here’s what I wore Tuesday June 25. My youngest sister graduated from upper secondary school/high school that day, so I thought it was the perfect opportunity to wear a pretty dress. The last time I wore this dress was at my own graduation party last year (when I got my master’s degree).

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.
Here’s what I wore Monday June 24. There’s nothing like a bright coloured outfit to brighten up a Monday.

Here’s the make-up I wore with this outfit. The black and white outfit needed a pop of colour, so I decided to wear a red make-up look. I think I might have found the perfect matte red eyeshadow in Cherry Soda from the Jeffree Star Cosmetics Blood Sugar palette.

Here’s what I wore Friday June 21. When I wear black and white outfits, I always make sure to mix different patterns and prints. For this outfit I decided to wear double gingham paired with my Pluto jeans.
