5 favourites – August

I just realised in this moment that by tomorrow summer will be officially over. It’s a bit sad, but on the other hand I might be okay for me to start looking forward to Christmas then. August has been quite an eventful month for me, but I did have time to enjoy the last bits of my summer holiday. Uni started again this week, and even though I’ve enjoyed having some time off, it’s nice to be back. Anyways, here are my last favourites from this summer.

Lyseblå herre bomber jakke - second hand

Light blue bomber jacket: This second hand bomber has been my favourite piece of clothing this past month. I’m wearing it today, I wore it yesterday, I think I’ve worn it every week since I bought it. It’s just such an effortless piece and I’ve styled it in so many different ways.

Anastasia Beverly Hills Clear Brow Gel: I got this sample with my last Beautybay order and it’s probably the best brow gel I’ve tried. When you set your eyebrows with this, they stay in place all day.

NYX Strobe Of Genius illuminating palette: I haven’t gotten around to haul this palette yet (I will soon though), but I had to include it in my August favourites. These highlight shades are so beautiful and pigmented, and there’s a shade for every kind of make-up look.

Drake – Controlla (Old School R&B Medley) by Conor Maynard: I remember listening to some of Conor Maynard’s covers on Youtube many years ago, and about a month or so ago I rediscovered him. This cover/medley of songs is amazing. I don’t remember the last time I listened to a song on repeat like I did with this song in the beginning of August, and I’ve kept listening to it throughout the month. It’s so catchy!

Phillips Bluetooth højtaler 2

Philips wireless portable speaker: My youngest sister’s got one of these speakers, and I thought it was very handy, so I put it on my birthday wish list and was lucky enough to get it. I just connect it to my iPad via bluetooth, and the sound is really good. This past month I’ve been listening to even more music than I usually do because of this little guy.

Something different

Outdoors birthday party

Here’s what I wore Saturday July 2. I went to a family birthday party and I knew we were going to be outdoors a lot, so this is what I decided to wear, but it was actually quite cold, so I had to change my shoes and put on some more layers at some point.

First impressions: Urban Decay All Nighter setting spray

DSC_0138DSC_0141

After only hearing and reading good things about the Urban Decay All Nighter setting spray, I finally purchased it. My first impressions of this product are that it feels really nice on the skin, smells nice and dries quickly. It claims to make your make-up last up to 16 hours, and I believe that to be true. The first time I wore it I had my make-up on for 12 hours. It was a warm day and I’d been biking (and therefore sweating) and my make-up still looked good at the end of the day. To sum up I’m for sure a fan of this product and would definitely recommend it.

Great colour combo

Here’s the make-up I wore with this outfit. I love how this eye make-up turned out. I think the dark reddish-brown on the eyelids looks great with the pop of blue on the lower lashes.

Comfy night out

Here’s what I wore Thursday June 30. I went to a party and then out dancing and I had a great time. When I was younger I used to dress up way more when I went out, but when I know I’ll be dancing I prefer wearing flats and something comfortable in general.
