I’ve been wanting a nice black top (or two) to wear on nights out, when I don’t feel like dressing up too much. I found these two at H&M the other day, and I love how simple they are, but still nicer and prettier than a basic black top.
Here’s the make-up I wore Wednesday September 16. I don’t wear blue eye shadow very often, but I really felt like it that day. I usually don’t wear nude lips that often either, but I’m in love with this lip combo.

September will be gone by tomorrow, and I can’t believe that the first month of autumn is already gone. I’ve been busy with uni the past month and it’ll continue in October; I have exams in a couple of weeks. I’m also going on an exciting trip in about a week and a half, but more about that later. And now let’s talk about some of my favourite things from September.
Anastasia Beverly Hills Contour Kit (light to medium): I wrote here that I loved the three shades I’d tried at that point, and since then I’ve tried the other shades as well, and they’re just as good. This contour kit is really nice, and I’ve used it every day since I received it.
MAC eye shadow in Satin Taupe: I’d been craving this eye shadow for over a year I think, when I got it for my birthday in August, and I’ve worn it countless times since. It’s so beautiful, and I love how it can be worn both in a very subtle way and in a more intense way.
Silver earrings with hearts: I love rediscovering clothes, or make-up, or in this case jewellery. I got these earrings for my 12th birthday, right after I got my ears pierced, but I’ve never worn them much until this month. I’ve probably worn them 3-4 times a week the past month, and I love how simple and cute they are.
Inside Out (film): As I’ve mentioned before, I absolutely love Disney films, and I’d heard so many good things about this new Pixar one. I went to see it with a friend of mine in the beginning of September, and it was so good! One of the best Pixar films in my opinion.
Black Magic – Little Mix: I’ve never listened to any other Little Mix songs, and I don’t really listen to new pop music in general, but this song is just so damn catchy. Maybe it’s because it has kind of an 80’s vibe to it?:)
I rarely make ‘inspiration’ posts anymore, mainly because that’s what my tumblr is for, but I thought I would start posting people or things that I find beautiful and inspiring on the blog again sometimes. I’ve made a post about the gorgeous Swedish blogger Angelica Blick before, but she’s still my favourite fashion blogger, so I thought I would share some of her newer outfits with you. She always looks great, and I love how her style is very versatile.
Here’s the make-up I wore with this outfit. One of the things I love most about autumn is that it’s very appropriate to wear dark lip colours, and this burgundy one is one of my favourites.

Here’s what I wore Tuesday September 15. As I wrote here, I love this top, and I think it looks just as good paired with a skirt than with trousers.
