5 favourites – November

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.

DSC_3822

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.

Honninghjerte 1

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

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

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!

5 favourites – August

I can’t believe that the last summer month will be over by tomorrow. We have had varied weather in Denmark this past month, but with a nice summer day here and there. I don’t mind that autumn is approaching though; that just means that we are getting closer to December and Christmas! But we still have a couple of autumn months to go through, and also a couple more favourites posts, so let’s start with some August favourites.

Lyseblå oversized denim jakke - H&M

Denim jacket: I’ve been loving this denim jacket since I started wearing it in the end of July. It goes with pretty much any outfit, and it’s been the perfect jacket for the warmer days we’ve had this past month.

Gosh neglelak i Sweet Rose

Gosh nail varnish (shade: 589 Sweet Rose): In the beginning of the month I wore this pink nail varnish two weeks in a row, and I absolutely loved it. I also wore pink nails another week this month, so I guess I’ve just been really into pink nails.

Bodum Travel Mug

Bodum travel mug: My birthday was in August and one of the things I got for my birthday was this travel mug. I had done some research on travel mugs (I knew I was going to spend a lot of time at uni writing my thesis), and this one was supposed to be one of the best ones, and it really is. It’s not leaking the slightest and it keeps the coffee warm for ages.

Newgirl

New Girl (TV series): I had thought about watching New Girl for a while, and I finally decided to give it a go in the beginning of the month, and I got hooked instantly. I finished the fifth season yesterday, and I’m really sad that there are no more seasons on Netflix at the moment. I don’t even know how to begin describing this show, but it’s so sweet and funny, and I absolutely love the characters. Every single one of them. So if you haven’t watched New Girl and you love sit coms, you should definitely give it shot.

It’s Time – Michael Bublé (album): Another birthday present I’ve been loving this month is this Michael Bublé album. I’ve been listening to it countless times, and it just makes me happy. I love all the songs on the album, and here’s just one of my favourites.

5 favourites – June

June has definitely been the toughest month for me this year so far. I’ve had a lot of exams and some very difficult ones, but they all went well, and now I’m going to enjoy my summer holidays before I start writing my thesis in August. Therefore, my blogging will be inconsistent the next month, but I’ll try to post as often as possible. I wish you all an amazing summer, and here’s some favourites from the month of June.

lysebla-ankel-flare-jeans-hm

Kick flare jeans: When I bought these jeans, I didn’t expect to love them as much as I do. I think they make an outfit look way more interesting, and they remind me a bit of the 70’s, which is awesome. I love that they can be styled in so many different ways. I’m wearing them here and here.

DSC_1827

Silver choker with pendants: This dainty silver choker has been one of my most worn necklaces this past month. I’ve been layering it with my Stegosaurus necklace, and I think they look great together.

Pukka Peppermint and Licorice 1

Pukka peppermint & licorice tea: I love tea, and liquorice is one of my favourites. This is quite an expensive tea brand (my mum gave it to me), but it really is good, and I love the combination of peppermint and liquorice.

how-i-met-your-mother-banner

How I Met Your Mother (TV series): I finally decided to watch HIMYM in the beginning of the month, and I got hooked instantly. I watched all 9 seasons (it was pretty much all I did in the evenings after I was done studying for the day), and I absolutely loved it. I will definitely rewatch this series some time.

Nem Eu – Salvador Sobral: My obsession with Salvador Sobral’s music continued throughout the month of June, and this song is just as beautiful as his Eurovision song. I still don’t understand a single word, but it still manages to move me, and I think it’s incredible when music can do that.

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.

dsc_1422

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.

DSC_2557

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.

DSC_2621

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

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.

5 favourites – March

I can’t believe that it’s already the last day of March. I had a very busy, but eventful month. I was especially busy with uni stuff, but I still spent a lot of time with both family and friends, and all in all March was a great month. The weather has slowly started to get a bit warmer which I really appreciate. I had a lot of favourites this month, so it was a bit difficult to pick just 5, but here they are.

sort-velour-bomber-jakke-cardigan-monki

Black velvet bomber cardigan: You have seen this velvet number quite a bit throughout the past couple of months, and you will definitely see more of it. I think I’ve worn it at least once a week during the past month, and it’s just one of my favourite clothing pieces at the moment. It’s so comfortable, and I’m just obsessed with velvet.

Real Techniques Expert Face Brush

Real Techniques Expert Face brush: I’m a huge fan of Real Techniques make-up brushes and this one was added to my collection in December. I didn’t use it though until this month when I got into contouring again, because this brush is great for blending out your contour.

Spinning hoops

Silver hoop earrings: I’ve had these earrings since I was 18 and I’ve always used them quite a bit, but this month they have been pretty much the only earrings I’ve worn. They go with everything, and they’re good medium sized hoops.

LLL d 29 _5194.NEF

La La Land (film): This year so far, I’ve watched so many amazing films, and in this month’s favourites I had to feature two of them. I had very high expectations to La La Land and I was not disappointed. I teared up so many times during this film, especially when all the amazing music was playing (the first thing I did when I got home from the movie theatre was to listen to the soundtrack on repeat). Through and through this film was just beautiful.

beautyandthebeast

Beauty and the Beast (film): Another film I was extremely excited about was Beauty and the Beast. As you probably already know, I’m a huge Disney fan, and Belle has always been my favourite Disney princess, and Emma Watson did an amazing job portraying her. I teared up whenever a song was playing, and just as La La Land, it was a beautiful film.

5 favourites – January

The first month of 2017 has already come to an end. Times flies by so fast. My January was mainly exam studying, choir rehearsals and performances, and then I had a bit of time off before the new semester started this week. I hope you all had a great start to the new year, and now let’s talk about some favourites.

dsc_1678

MAC Pro Longwear Paint Pot in Groundwork: Because I’ve been studying for my exam most of January my make-up routine has been quick and easy, and this cream eye shadow has been the main thing I’ve worn on my eyes. It’s perfect as a base or on it’s own.

dsc_1290

Jeffree Star Skin Frost in Peach Goddess: This has been my go-to highlighter in January. It’s a beautiful rose gold-ish colour which almost matches my skin and is therefore less intense on the skin, but still glowy and beautiful (it’s difficult to explain) and I’ve been loving that look.

the-sims-4-city-living

The Sims 4 City Living (computer game): I got the newest expansion pack for The Sims 4 for Christmas, and I’ve been playing it pretty much whenever I had the time. I love playing The Sims so much; it’s one of my favourite pastimes.

footloose-movie-still-1984-660x330

Footloose (film): I’ve watched so many good films this month and the one that started it all was Footloose (the original one of course). It’s just one of those classics that I’d been wanting to watch for ages, and I’m so glad I finally got around to it, because it was great.

Night Driver – Busted (album): Another one of my Christmas presents was Busted’s newest album. As I’ve mentioned before I’m a huge Busted fan, so I was extremely excited to listen to this album. Even though it’s very different from the music they used to make I still absolutely love it. Above you can listen to the song with this same title as the album, Night Driver, which is one of my many favourite songs from the album.

5 favourites – December

Another year has come to an end and I really can’t believe it. I had a lovely and relaxing Christmas, and I’m looking forward to see what 2017 will bring me. I hope you all have a wonderful night tonight; be safe and take care of each other. Let’s say proper goodbye to 2016 with some December favourites.

dsc_1391

Christmas jumpers: My favourite clothing items this December has been my Christmas jumpers. I’ve been wearing them 3-4 times a week (and everyday the week leading up to Christmas) and I’ve been feeling very festive.

dsc_1008

MAC powder blush in Desert Rose: During winter I love wearing deeper blushers, because it looks very pretty and fresh on pale skin, and this MAC one has been my go-to.

rimmel-neglelak-when-i-grow-up

Rimmel 60 seconds Super Shine nail polish (shade: 514 When I Grow Up): This past year I’ve worn mainly neutral shades on my nails, and this taupe bronze colour is stunning. I wore it for two weeks straight in the beginning of December.

the-christmasaurus

The Christmasaurus – Tom Fletcher: I had this book on my wishlist for Christmas, but I already got it on my gift advent calendar in the beginning of December. I finished reading it a few days ago and I loved it. Even though it’s a children’s novel it’s such a lovely Christmas story.

The Little Boy That Santa Claus Forgot – Nat King Cole: My favourite Christmas song this year is a new discovery (though it’s an old song). It’s one of the saddest Christmas songs I’ve ever heard, but also one of the most beautiful ones.
