It’s the final day of April and a very rainy one. April has propably been the busiest month for me this year so far. I’ve been working a lot, and I also moved. I still managed to collect a lot of favourites, and here’s 5 of them.
Rainbow hair pins: I’ve had this colourful hair pins for ages, and I’ve always used them a lot, but I’ve started to use them even more. I’m wearing them here, and it’s one of my go-to hair styles.
Pringles – Paprika: I definitely prefer sweets/candy over crisps, but I do like crisps, and I have found my favourite flavour in these Pringles. They are so good!
iPhone SE: I really needed to get a new phone for ages, and two weeks ago, I finally got a new one. I decided to get my first iPhone, and I didn’t need the newest one, so I went with the SE, and so far I’m very happy with my choice. I’ve always wanted a phone with a cute cover, and I found this awesome dinosaur one on Etsy (if you didn’t know already, I’m obsessed with dinosaurs).
Wonder Woman (film): I finally got to watch Wonder Woman in the beginning of the month, and I loved it. I’m always up for a good super hero film, and it’s so nice to see a strong, female super hero as the main character.
My new apartment: My last favourite of this month is my new apartment. I’ve only lived here for two weeks, but I love it! It’s nice to be out of the dorm and finally have a proper home. The picture is just a small part of my living room, and it’s one of my favourite spaces.
It’s been quite a while since I last made a film style icon post. So far, I’ve only featured stylish film women (apart from the honorable mention of Duckie Dale), but I thought it was time to talk about a super stylish male film character. You might have noticed my love for ’70s fashion, and no one is more stylish than John Travolta’s Tony Manero in Saturday Night Fever (1977).
The iconic opening scene of the film features Tony Manero strutting down the street in an awesome black and red outfit. I love the huge shirt collars of the ’70s and of course the flared trousers.
This pink outfit is my absolute favourite! I want those pink trousers so bad! The silky shirt is beautiful too, and I love that he’s wearing a dark red leather jacket with the look.
And of course, I had to feature Tony’s iconic white suit. I would love a suit similar to this one. I don’t know if I could pull off the white, but Tony sure does.
The first month of spring (though the weather wasn’t spring-like at all) has come to an end. At the moment, I’m enjoying my easter holiday, but most of March was all about work for me. I’m super excited about April, because I’m moving into a new apartment in two weeks! I can’t wait to get more space and to decorate my new home. But before welcoming April, let’s say goodbye to March with some favourites.
Flared corduroy trousers vol. 2: My corduroy obsession is still going strong. These trousers that I found in the men’s section at a second hand store are just perfect, and I’ve worn them so much.
Faux fur beret: My beret collection is also growing, and the newest addition has been my go-to hat this past month. I love the plum colour and the fact that it’s fluffy. It’s such a nice accessory.
Troll Beads bangle: When I got my master’s degree in late January, my parents gave me this beautiful Troll Beads bangle + the two black glass beads. My sister and her boyfriend gave me the silver bead (+ another glass bead). I love the ability to costumise your jewellery, and I’m really looking forward to extending my Troll Beads collection.
Moana (film): I finally got to watch Moana, and I loved it. I find it to be a very aesthetically pleasing film, and the songs are great!
White Collar (Tv series): I can’t believe it took me so long to finally start watching this TV series. I was hooked from pilot episode; I love the characters and especially the relationship between Neal and Peter, and I can’t wait to watch the rest of the series.
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.
