A ton of beauty youtubers have raved about the Stila Magnificent Metals Glitter & Glow liquid eye shadows, and as a glitter lover, I had to try one out. I chose the shade Smouldering Satin, which is a brown/taupe with silver glitter.
The eye shadow is really easy to apply. It has a pretty standard liquid eye shadow/lipstick wand/applicator. I used a finger to blend out the edges which worked very well. It dries rather quickly, and it’s really long lasting. It also looks stunning, so if you love an intense glittery look, I would definitely recommend these. I recently bought a second shade, and I would love to add more colours to my (small) collection.
Here’s what I wore Monday April 23. These are the first outfit pictures taken in my new apartment. I don’t know if it’s the best place to take outfit pictures, but it has to do for now.

One of my sisters speaks highly about Essence eye shadows. More specifically the single eye shadows that you can put in a custom palette, and I thought about trying those out, but then I saw some new eye shadow palettes from their Trend Factory collection, and I chose to try out the one called In Love With Rose which is number 02 & Happily Ever After.
When you swatch the shadows with your fingers, the pigmentation seems decent, but as you can see that pigmentation doesn’t translate on to the eyelids; at least not with the lighter shades. They do blend out nicely though, and if you like a more subtle eye shadow look, these are very pretty. But be careful with the shimmery shades, because they have some fall out. The lasting power of the shadows were very good; I took the first picture right after applying my make-up and the second picture 12,5 hours later, and the eye shadows hadn’t changed much at all. Because I like pigmented eye shadows, I probably wouldn’t buy any more of these types of palettes from Essence, but I’m still curious about their single eye shadows, and I might try those out to see if the formula is different.
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.
Here’s what I wore Tuesday March 6. It has finally become spring in Denmark, so it’s a bit weird to look back at outfits like this one from just a month ago, when it was super cold outside.
Btw, the reason why I haven’t blogged the past week is because I moved into a new apartment, and I just got an internet connection today.

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.
