How are we already one month into 2018? I’ve been very busy starting my new job this month, and I just got the grade for my master’s thesis today, so now I have a master’s degree. I still can’t believe it. I hope you had a good start to the new year. I had a lot of favourites this month, but I’ve managed to narrow it down to five.
Flared corduroy trousers: I’ve been obsessed with these amazing trousers this past month. The styling options are endless, and they’re really warm and comfortable too.
Black leather belt bag: I’d been wanting a simple belt bag like this one for a while, and I love it. It’s my new everyday bag. I wear it crossbody, and it’s not heavy, but it still fits a lot of stuff.
Silver plait ring by Jane Kønig: I’ve worn this ring almost everyday since I got it for Christmas. I love the simple, plaited design.
MAC eye shadow in Ricepaper: I’ve mostly worn very simple, neutral eye make-up this past month, and this eye shadow is what I’ve worn all over my eyelids. It’s very close to my skin colour, and it has a nice sheen to it (which is difficult to see in the picture).
The Greatest Showman (film): A couple of weeks ago I went to the cinema with my sisters to watch The Greatest Showman, and I loved it. The cast is great, and the music is incredible. Watch it if you haven’t already.
I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas or whatever you celebrate and happy New Year! Another year has come to an end, and for me it’s the end of an era. I handed in my master’s thesis a few days ago which means that I’m saying goodbye to the university after 5,5 years. Even though it will be a month before I actually get my master’s degree, I have already gotten a job, and I start working in just a few days. 2018 is going to be challeging and filled with new experiences which I’m really looking forward to. Let’s say goodbye to 2017 with some December favouites.
Fluffy Christmas socks: Throughout the month I have expressed my love for Christmas clothing, and I’ve loved wearing all my different jumpers and T-shirts. I’ve also loved wearing these fluffy Christmas penguin socks. They’re extremely soft and comfortable and so cute.
Red boots by Raid: I’ve been obsessed with these red boots in December, and I have a feeling that the obsession will continue. They went so well with most of my christmassy outfits, and they’re a perfect pop of colour.
Maybelline Fit Me Luminous + Smooth foundation (shade: 110 Porcelain): My favourite foundation for the past year or so has been the Maybelline Fit Me Matte + Poreless foundation, but because I had a rash underneath my eyes, I’ve had to stay away from matte make-up, so I decided to try the Luminous + Smooth version of the foundation, and I’ve loved it.
Jeffree Star Velour liquid lipstick in Poinsettia: I’ve mainly worn red lipsticks in December, and this metallic dream has been my favourite. Even though it’s metallic, it’s very wearable, and I’ll continue to wear it all year round.
Finding Dory (film): I finally got to watch Finding Dory, and I was suprised by how great it is. I think it’s even better than Finding Nemo, and I’ll definitely rewatch this film another time.
Finally! It’s the last day of November which means that December starts tomorrow. I’ve expressed my love for Christmas at more than one occasion, so I’m very excited indeed. That is also why most of my November favourites are related to Christmas.
Urban Decay eye shadow in Relish: I’m obsessed with red eye shadow and this one is stunning! It’s so pigmented and blendable, and it complements my Juvia’s Place The Saharan palette perfectly.
Gingerbread: Gingerbread is one of my favourite Christmas treats. In Denmark we call it ‘honningkage’ (directly translated: honey cake), and it usually comes in the shape of a heart. I’ve already eaten quite a few ‘honningkager’, or ‘honninghjerter’ (honey hearts), this past month.
Arthur Christmas (film): I’ve watched a lot of Christmas films in November, and Arthur Christmas was my favourite. I hadn’t watch it before, and loved it! If you love Christmas and you love cartoons this is a must-watch film.
The Lake House (film): I’ve also watched other films that are not Christmas films this past month. I hadn’t heard about The Lake House before, but it was so good! One of the best romantic films I’ve watched in a long time.
The Christmas Song – Nat King Cole: The song I’ve listened to the most this past month is without a doubt this Christmas classic. The old, classic Christmas songs are my favourites in general, and this one is just so beautiful and festive!
October has come to an end which means that in only one month it’ll finally be December. October was a very busy month for me; I’ve been working hard on my master’s thesis and I also went on a choir trip to Helsinki. In November my main focus will definitely be my thesis, and I’m pretty sure that December will be here in no time then. But first, here are some of my favourite things from the month of October.
Burgundy Oxford style shoes by Duffy: I bought these shoes years ago, but I hadn’t really worn them much. I started wearing them more this year, and this past month I’ve been wearing them a lot. I love the dark burgundy colour and the chunky soles.
Warm beige shoulder bag by Belsac: I bought this bag at a second hand store in July, and I decided to bring it with my to Helsinki earlier this month. It was the perfect sized bag for a 5 day trip, and as I’ve mentioned before I love the colour and shape of it.
Juvia’s Place The Saharan eye shadow palette: I expressed my love for this palette in my last post. It’s so gorgeous, and I’m really looking forward to play around with it even more.
Funny Girl (film): I’d been wanting to watch this film for ages, and I finally got to this month. I started watching it in Helsinki with one of the girls from the choir, and then we watched the rest in Helsinki and Riga airport respectively on our way back home. I already new and loved the music, and Barbra Streissand and Omar Sharif did such an amazing job portraying Fanny Brice and Nick Arnstein.
A. C. Perch Afternoon blend tea: When my mum visisted me in the beginning of October, we went to a beautiful tea house and had delicious tea, scones, and petit fours. We tried two different types of tea and our favourite was the Afternoon blend which we purchased a bag of each to take home, so I’ve been drinking a lot of it since.
Last week I rewatched Legally Blonde (2001) for the 100th time and if you love pink like I do, you don’t have to look any further for inspiration. Elle Woods played by Reese Witherspoon is the number one inspiration when it comes to dressing in pink. I’d decided to do this post a long time ago, but it was very nice to rewatched all of Elle’s amazing outfits. I rewatched Legally Blonde 2: Red, White & Blonde last week as well, but I’ve decided to only feature looks from the first film.
Elle’s signature colour is obviously pink; hot pink to be exact. This matching hot pink leather outfit is probably difficult to pull off for most people, but we can still take inspiration from it. I sure wouldn’t mind owning a pink leather jacket.
This look is quite different from Elle’s other looks. The shirt and tie with the cardigan that looks a bit like a dressing gown is a very unique look, and I love it!
This outfit, on the other hand, is so Elle. I want that pink faux fur so bad!
Let’s not forget about the iconic bend and snap. This outfit is so cute, and I’m obsessed with the cropped kick flare jeans.
And of course Elle nails her first lawsuit wearing a beautiful hot pink dress with matching heels. She really brightens up that dull courtroom.
September has come to an end, which means that there are only two more months before it’s December! I’m already super excited about December and Christmas. I really can’t wait! September definitely brought some colder weather with it, but that just means that it’s time for cosy jumpers and cute socks. Here are my 5 favourites from September.
Mickey Mouse pyjamas: These are my new favourite pyjamas. I’m always cold at night, and this long sweatshirt and leggings combo is perfect for keeping me warm + I love a good Mickey print.
Glitter socks: Speaking of cute socks, I’ve been loving glitter socks lately. They add a perfect final touch to an outfit. I haven’t posted any outfits featuring glitter socks yet, but I will soon-ish.
EOS Visibly Soft lip balm in Vanilla Mint: I’ve been using EOS lip balms for years, but I just started using this one in September, and I love the scent. Vanilla and mint might sound like a strange combo, but it works. It smells so good.
Finding Nemo (film): Until a few weeks ago, I had only watch Finding Nemo once and it was so many years ago, so I didn’t remember much of it. Therefore, I was really excited to rewatch it, and it was so good!
Bones (TV series): My absolute favourite this past month has been Bones. I’ve been watching it almost every day since one of the last days of August, and I’m almost done watching season 6. I’d watched a few episodes on TV a long time ago, but I’m really enjoying watching it from the beginning and in chronological order. You really get to know the characters and their development through the series which I love.
One of the biggest film style icons from the ’90s is without a doubt Cher Horowitz from Clueless (1995). Cher is the queen of plaid; most of the outfits I have chosen involves plaid. She wears a lot of bold colours, but she also looks great in a more neutral colour scheme. If you’re all about that ’90s fashion, Cher is the one to look to for inspiration.
Cher’s yellow plaid outfit is probably the most iconic look from the film. I personally can’t pull-off yellow, but I still think this outfit is fantastic. Cher’s best friend Dionne is also a style icon, and Cher and Dionne look great in their matching plaid outfits.
I think I like Cher’s red plaid outfit even more than her yellow one. I love the oversized coat and the beret.
Another oversized jacket and mini skirt combo. Even when she goes shopping she’s put-together.
The bottoms of the sleeves on this cardigan are incredible! The colour scheme of this look is very muted, which gives it a more girly vibe compared to the previous outfits.
This all red look is amazing! The simple red dress paired with the fabulous jacket/coat is perfect. A little too much maybe, but it’s so Cher.
