Film style icon: Holly Golightly

I’d like to start a series of posts about style icons from films. Watching films is one of my favourite pastimes, and I love being inspired by film fashion. I’ll start this series with the leading lady from one of my absolute favourite films; Holly Golightly (played by my favourite actress Audrey Hepburn) from Breakfast at Tiffany’s (1961).

The most iconic Holly Golightly outfit is of course her little black dress paired with pearls, gloves, and big sun glasses. She made the LBD a wardrobe stable for most women, and I myself have been inspired by this look and worn a similar outfit at numerous costumes parties (here’s some pictures from the last time I dressed up as Miss Golightly).

One of my favourite Holly looks is this amazing all pink one. Even though we see Holly in a lot of neutral colours, she wears a couple of colourful outfits that are just stunning. This outfit speaks to me for several reasons, but the main reason why I love it is because of the colour (you probably know by now that I love pink).

Another colourful Holly Golighty outfit consists of this amazing orange coat paired with black and dark brown accessories. This look is very simple, but incredibly stylish.

Holly Golightly is not only inspiring when she’s all dressed up; this casual polo neck and black trousers combo is timeless.

The little black dress is not the only classic clothing item displayed in Breakfast at Tiffany’s; Holly Golightly rocked the beige trenchcoat as well. I used to wear my beige trenchcoat a lot, and now I really want to start wearing again.

First impressions: L’Oréal False Lash Superstar Red Carpet Black

DSC_2070

Last month I hauled some drugstore products including the L’Oréal False Lash Superstar Red Carpet Black mascara. I’ve been testing it, and here are my first impressions.

Step 1 + step 2

It’s a double-ended mascara with two steps. First, I applied step 1, which is a primer. It’s a white product, but it turns almost clear. It made my lashes look long and curled. After it had dried, I applied step 2; a regular black mascara. The mascara that got on to my eyelids during application was fairly easy to remove without ruining my eye shadow. The mascara looked nice, but I don’t think it was anything special. It transferred a bit to the top of my eyelids during the day, which seems to be a general problem for me (only few mascaras don’t transfer on me, e.g. my favourite Maybelline The Falsies). It held the curled very nicely (the primer might have something to do with that), and it was easy to remove with regular eye make-up remover. To be completely honest, I’m not the biggest fan of the mascara. I’ve tried ones that are much better.

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.

Urban Decay Heavy Metal glitter eyeliner

When you are doing your make-up for a night out, it’s nice to do a little extra, and glitter is a great way of doing that. The thing about loose glitter is that it goes everywhere, and as much as I love glitter, I don’t want it all over my face. I had seen several youtubers use the Urban Decay Heavy Metal glitter eyeliners on their eyelids, and it looked so quick and easy, so I decided to try it out. I bought the silver one which is called Glam Rock, and it works perfectly. I really want the rest of the colours now!

5 favourites – April

We are rapidly moving into the last month of spring, and I really wish the weather would get a lot warmer very soon. Anyways, April was another very busy month for me, and my exams start in May, so I have yet another busy month ahead of me. But let’s say goodbye to April by talking about some favourites.

Silver sneakers by Missguided: I’m so glad I bought these silver sneakers back in December. They add a little extra something to any outfit, and I don’t think I’ve ever gotten so many complements on a pair of shoes before.

Jeffree Star Beauty Killer eye shadow palette: Jeffree Star Cosmetics is one of my favourite make-up brands, and I finally bought the Beauty Killer palette a couple of months ago. The shadows are so pigmented, and I love the colours; I’ve actually worn more colourful eye looks this month partly because of this palette.

Wet n Wild MegaGlo contouring palette in Dulce De Leche: This little highlight and contour duo is very handy. It’s great for travelling, and the powders are matte and very pigmented.

MONSTERS, INC. 3D

Monsters, Inc. (film): On the film front, my 2017 has been amazing so far. One of the best films, I’ve watched this past month, is Monsters, Inc. I’ve watched it once before, but that was years ago, so I didn’t remember much of it. It was so good though, but as the Disney lover that I am, I find it hard to dislike anything Disney.

glee

Glee (TV series): I’ve watched Glee before, but this month I just felt like rewatching it. So I watched the first two seasons and about half of the third season again, and I still love it. I was in my gymnasium’s (high school) choir, which I loved, but I wish it would have been more like glee club.

MAC Colour Rocker + lip pencil

DSC_2159DSC_2153

I’m always excited about lipsticks in fun and unusual colours, so obviously I had to get my hands of some of the MAC Colour Rocker lipsticks. I know they’re been out for a while, but I’m on my busiest semester so far, so I don’t have time to blog as regularly as I used to. I’ll try to blog as much as I can though. Anyways, back to lipsticks. I decided to buy three shades from the collection (even though I could have bought pretty much every shade); Show and Teal, Night Mint, and Cold Hard Cash. At the time I bought the lipsticks there was a deal on the webside where you would get 20 % off if the bought a lipstick and a lip pencil, so I saw that as an opportunity to buy the lip pencil in Stone as well. I’ll post looks with all of these lip products eventually, but I have a look wearing one of them coming up soon.

Bad nail habits

DSC_2292DSC_2293DSC_2291

I haven’t done a nail post in ages, and it’s because my nails were in a really bad condition for a long time, but a few weeks back they got a bit better (the pictures) and now they’re a bit bad again. By bad I mean that they break all the time. My nails are very fragile, and I think it might have something to do with the fact that I used to bite my nails; I started biting them in kindergarten and didn’t stop until I was 16. I still have the tendency to fiddle with my nails when they’re starting to break which doesn’t make it better. Do you know any good products for making your nails stronger?
