5 favourites – May

By tomorrow it’ll officially be summer. Last week felt like summer in Denmark, but right now it’s windy and rainy outside. May was yet another busy month; the exam period started and I had a big choir concert last week. June will continue to be all about exams, but it is nice to know that this is my last exam period, because I’m going to write my master’s thesis next semester. Even though I’ve been busy this month, I still had a lot of favourites, and here’s five of them.

Adidas Superstar 80s Primeknit sneakers: I bought these sneakers in a Black Friday sale last year, but because of the light knitted material and the cold Danish weather, I haven’t been able to wear until this spring. I’ve especially worn then a lot this past month, and I simply think they are awesome.

Jeffree Star Skin Frost in Eclipse: You probably know by now how much I love the Jeffree Star Skin Frosts, and this limited edition shade made in collaboration with Manny MUA is gorgeous. If Ice Cold and Peach Goddess had a baby, Eclipse would be it.

Homemade iced coffee: As I mentioned, I’m in the middle of the exam period, so I’ve been drinking a lot of coffee. In the beginning of the month, I decided to try to make my own iced coffee, and I’ve been obsessed ever since. It’s really easy to make (it’s just coffee, a bit of sugar, milk, and ice cubes) and it tastes so good.

Riverdale (TV series): I know I’m a little late to the party when it comes to this Netflix Original series, but better late than never. I didn’t really know what to expect (I don’t know much about Archie Comics), but I was extremely pleasantly surprised. I love crime solving series and some high school/love drama. Actually, I enjoyed this series so much that I watched it twice this month. I can’t wait for season 2!

Amar pelos Dois – Salvador Sobral: I love the Eurovision Song Contest, and I’ve watched it every year since I was little. I don’t always like the winning song, but this year my absolute favourite won. This is one of the most beautiful and moving songs, I’ve ever listened to and my favourite Eurovision winner of all time. Even though I don’t understand a single word (it’s in Portuguese) and still feel every single word, and I’ve been listening to this song on repeat ever since it won the contest. Please, take a few minutes and listen to this song if you haven’t already.

Here’s what I wore Saturday April 8. I went out for dinner and drinks with a friend, and I really felt like wearing a suit-inspired look.

Dark neutrals

Here’s the make-up I wore with this outfit. With an outfit of a neutral colour scheme, I could have worn a much more colourful make-up look, but I really felt like wearing some dark neutral shades that day.

Velvet and denim combo

Here’s what I wore Friday April 7. I love combining velvet and denim, because they are two such different fabrics, and therefore I think they really complement each other.

Jeffree Star x Manny MUA

DSC_2560DSC_2551DSC_2553DSC_2557

Jeffree Star and Manny MUA are two of my favourite beauty youtubers, so I was very excited about this limited edition collaboration. I decided to get the Skin Frost and one of the two Velour liquid lipsticks. The Skin Frost is called Eclipse and is a beautiful peachy, champagne colour. The lipstick is called I’m Shook and is a muted corally red (it’s really hard to describe). Both products are absolutely stunning, and the matte black and holographic packaging is amazing!

Matching blue
