Another year has come to an end and I really can’t believe it. I had a lovely and relaxing Christmas, and I’m looking forward to see what 2017 will bring me. I hope you all have a wonderful night tonight; be safe and take care of each other. Let’s say proper goodbye to 2016 with some December favourites.
Christmas jumpers: My favourite clothing items this December has been my Christmas jumpers. I’ve been wearing them 3-4 times a week (and everyday the week leading up to Christmas) and I’ve been feeling very festive.
MAC powder blush in Desert Rose: During winter I love wearing deeper blushers, because it looks very pretty and fresh on pale skin, and this MAC one has been my go-to.
Rimmel 60 seconds Super Shine nail polish (shade: 514 When I Grow Up): This past year I’ve worn mainly neutral shades on my nails, and this taupe bronze colour is stunning. I wore it for two weeks straight in the beginning of December.
The Christmasaurus – Tom Fletcher: I had this book on my wishlist for Christmas, but I already got it on my gift advent calendar in the beginning of December. I finished reading it a few days ago and I loved it. Even though it’s a children’s novel it’s such a lovely Christmas story.
The Little Boy That Santa Claus Forgot – Nat King Cole: My favourite Christmas song this year is a new discovery (though it’s an old song). It’s one of the saddest Christmas songs I’ve ever heard, but also one of the most beautiful ones.
Like many other MAC enthusiasts I was really excited about the MAC Mariah Carey collection, and I decided to get two lipsticks and a blusher. As you can see the packaging is absolutely gorgeous; the silver glitter with the pale gold is just beautiful.
The blusher I picked up is You’ve Got Me Feeling which is a light candy pink. I chose this one because I don’t really have any bright pink blushers.
I picked up two of the lipsticks because look at that packaging! All the shades in this collection are very neutral which is normally not something I go for, but that’s exactly why I thought it would be fun to try out a couple of shades.
The first shade I got is Dahhlinggg which is a light peachy pink shade. I decided to get this shade because I have nothing like it in my collection. It’s my first Cremesheen finish lipstick from MAC, and I haven’t worn it yet, so I’m excited to see how pigmented or sheer it is on the lips.
The second lipstick I got is All I Want which is a champagne shimmer. I got this partly because of the name, but also because I’ve been loving frosty/metallic lips lately. I have worn this lipstick once so far and I actually really liked it. It’s a bit sheer so I wore a lipliner underneath. I think it would be a beautiful lip topper as well.
Here’s the make-up I wore with this outfit on Christmas Eve. Quite simple, but still festive with glowy skin and a deep red lip.

Here’s what I wore Wednesday November 9. The Danish winter weather has been quite warm this year so far, so I’ve only worn my winter boots a few times. They are not the prettiest shoes in the world and they are pretty hard to style, so I decided to go with matching black and beige.
