OOTD – Dark & stormy

Og ja, her er det altså mit outfit jeg snakker om, og ikke vejret der er “dark and stormy”, da disse billeder blev taget på en fin solskinsdag i sidste uge. Mere af det, tak! En ting jeg elsker ved efteråret, er mørk makeup og især mørke læber. Jeg har netop købt en ny, mat læbestift fra Maybelline, som hedder “Divine Wine”, og den er simpelthen så smuk! Det er den, som I kan se her på billederne, og den kan klart anbefales, hvis I leder efter en ny, mørkerød læbestift til samlingen. Det er desuden første gang at jeg viser min nyeste Michael Kors taske in action. Hvad synes I om den? Jeg er så vild med, at man kan tage de røde items med ind i efteråret, for jeg kommer helt sikkert til at bruge den en del denne sæson! 😉

English: Yes, it’s my outfit that’s “dark and stormy” and not the weather, even though the weather has been crazy the last couple of weeks here in Denmark. One of the things I love about fall is the dark makeup, and especially dark lips. I just bought a Maybelline lipstick in “Divine Wine”, which is the one that you can see in these pictures. It is so beautiful, and I can definitely recommend it, if you need a new, dark lipstick. Besides that, this is the first time I’m showing you my newest Michael Kors bag in action, and I love the fact that you can bring the red color in to the fall, cause I’ll definitely wear this non stop for the next couple of months! 🙂

Dress up your bag!

Hvis der er noget, som jeg er blevet vild med på det seneste, så er det taskepynt! I sidste uge var jeg til et event hos DAY Birger et Mikkelsen, og her fik jeg mulighed for at få trykt mine initialer på en taske. Min søde farmor ville gerne sponsere en ny DAY taske til mig, og det blev altså til den klassiske Gweneth i en lækker rød/brun/orange farve.. Helt perfekt til efteråret! Jeg kunne altså ikke nøjes med initialerne, så da jeg kom hjem måtte jeg klipse min mink charm på, og det er simpelthen så fint! Det er faktisk min mor der har lavet hjertet, men hvis I gerne selv vil have fingrene i sådan et vedhæng, så har jeg samlet et par stykker her.. Hvis min pung tillod det, havde jeg for længst klikket Fendis “jordbær” hjem! Hvilket charm ville I pynte jeres taske med? 🙂

English: If there’s something I have been loving lately, it’s bag charms! I recently got my initials printed on a DAY Birger et Mikkelsen bag, that my sweet grandmother purchased for me. I also added a heart charm to the bag, and I think it looks so cute! My mother made the charm for me, but if you want something similar, you can check out the collage that I made. If my wallet allowed it, I would have purchased the Fendi “strawberry” charm a long time ago! What charm would you like to decorate your bag with? 🙂

OOTD – DIY shirt!

Jeg har på det seneste været vild med DIY projekter, så da jeg forleden fandt en pose med sølvperler i Tiger, fik jeg en idé. Jeg gik i H&M og købte en sort t-shirt til 50,- og så kunne jeg ellers tage hjem og begynde på mit lille projekt. I starten var jeg lidt i tvivl, om jeg skulle sy perler på udskæringen, på ærmerne eller på tilfældige steder. Jeg valgte, at gå med ærmerne, og jeg synes, at resultatet er blevet super fint! Det tog ikke lang tid at lave, og så var det nemt at sy perlerne på, så alle kan være med. De havde flere forskellige perler i Tiger, så det er bare om at komme afsted, hvis man vil rekreere looket! Hvad synes I for øvrigt om det? Jeg synes, at outfittet passer perfekt til mine nye støvler, som jeg også er helt vilde med! 🙂

English recap: Lately I have been loving DIY projects, so when I found a bag of pearls the other day, I got an idea. I bought a black t-shirt at H&M and then I went home to begin my little project. I didn’t know if I wanted to sew on the pearls near the neckline, the sleeves or all over the shirt, but I decided to go with the sleeves. It was super easy to do, and I think the outcome is really cool. If you need something to do this Sunday, you should definitely make your own beaded shirt! 😉

Review – ABH liquid lipstick!

Hej allesammen! Som I ved, plejer jeg at lave mine reviews på engelsk, så jeg håber, at I også vil følge med i dag 🙂

Hey everyone! It’s time for another beauty review, and today I’m testing the Anastasia Beverly Hills liquid lipsticks. I have heard so many different things about these, so I thought that I would make my own review to let you know what my opinion is. I really wanted a nude liquid lipstick, so the first one I decided to purchase is called “Pure Hollywood”. It was really difficult to choose one since they have 35 colors to choose from. They are quite expensive here in Denmark (220 DKK / $35), so I actually got one of my friends to buy it for me in New York.

dsc_1271“Spicy” and “Pure Hollywood”

I was so excited to try it when I got it, but I was also scared that it wouldn’t be as good as I expected it to be. I had tried NYX’s “Lingerie” liquid lipstick, and it was awfully dry and patchy. Luckily, the ABH liquid lipstick applied so much better! The color was very opaque, and the product wasn’t drying for my lips at all. The color stayed on the entire day, but of course I had to do some touch ups after eating or drinking a lot. I was actually so pleased with the lipstick that I went out and bought another one, called “Spicy”. dsc_12366666Pure Hollywood” on bare lips with no liner.

This one is much more colorful, and I absolutely love the orange/red color of it. I had to do some more touch ups with this one, and I would also recommend wearing a lip liner with colors like this. NYX’s “Summer tease” is a good match with “Spicy”. You could also wear a lip liner with “Pure Hollywood”, but I don’t find it necessary. Another thing I love about this product, is the wand. It is short and has a flat side, which is perfect for applying the product. Also, this product doesn’t have a lot of scent to it. It smells makeup-ish (you know what I mean, haha) but it doesn’t smell like something have been added to it, to give it a strong scent. Now, let’s look at the good and bad things about this product.

dsc_1276

+: Big shade range, good application/wand, lots of pigmentation, the smell isn’t too bad, good lasting power, they aren’t too drying, and last but not least the beautiful packaging.

-: You need to wear a liner with the non-nude colors, the price.

✮✮✮✮✮✩

Overall I have to give the ABH liquid lipstick 5/6 stars. They are the best liquid lipsticks I have ever tried, and the only problem I have with them, is that you have to go out and find a lip liner that matches the lipstick, since ABH don’t make their own lip liners. Also, they are a bit expensive, but they are definitely worth it!

 

OOTD – End of summer

Sommeren er officielt slut, og det kan mærkes på vejret! Selvom jeg elsker de varme sommerdage, glæder jeg mig til at hive alle mine støvler, frakker og lækre halstørklæder frem. Jeg fik skudt disse fine outfit billeder på en af sommerens sidste dage, og dem skal I ikke snydes for, selvom kalenderen siger efterår. Den røde farve fortsætter jo ind i efteråret, så I får måske kjolen at se igen om et par måneder, når den er stylet med en varm jakke og høje støvler 😉

English: Summer’s officially over, and the Danish weather must be aware of this, since it has been raining for the past few days. These pictures were taken on one of the last summer days of the year, and even though I love the warm weather, I can’t wait to pull out my fall accessories! The red color is a trend that continues in to the next season, so perhaps you will get to see the dress again in a few months, styled with a warm coat and some boots 😉

Som I ved, elsker jeg stamping, og for et par uger siden købte jeg et nyt sæt fra MoYou, med en gennemsigtig stamper. Jeg var bange for at det ville floppe helt, ligesom da jeg købte en lignende stamper på eBay, som var langt billigere. Heldigvis gik det meget bedre denne gang, og jeg er super tilfreds med resultatet! Jeg havde også bestilt en 50’er inspireret stamping plate, som jeg har brugt til dette design, og selvom dette mest var en tester, kunne jeg godt tænke mig at lave en gradient manicure med stamping på alle neglene. Hvad tænker I om det? Er det noget I har lyst til at se? 🙂

English recap: As you guys know, I absolutely love stamping, and a few weeks ago I ordered a new stamping set from MoYou. The set is much better than what I have tried from eBay, so if you like stamping too, you should definitely check them out! This is actually just a test design, but I would love to do a gradient manicure with 1950’s design on all of the nails. Would you like to see that as well? 🙂

Loving him was red

Hvis der er en trend jeg elsker lige nu, så er det den røde farve! Jeg har over de seneste par måneder fået anskaffet mig røde øreringe, en rød taske og forskellige nuancer af rød læbestift. Heldigvis fortsætter trenden ind i efteråret, og hvis du ikke er hoppet med på vognen endnu, kan du få lidt inspiration her. Jeg kunne sagtens finde på at hoppe i de røde støvler, men som I så i sidste indlæg, har jeg lige købt et andet par, så de røde må vente 😉 Hvilke items er i mest vilde med?

English: If there’s a trend that I’m loving right now, it’s the color red! Over the past couple of months I have accumulated red earrings, a red bag and different shades of red lipstick. Luckily, the trend is here to stay for fall, and if you haven’t jumped on the bandwagon yet, here’s some inspiration for you. I would love to wear the red boots, but as you saw in my last post, I just got a new pair of boots, so the red ones will have to wait 😉 Which items do you like the most?

New in: Boots!

Der er lang tid til studiestart og køb af bøger, når man står med et par lækre støvler i hånden.. Sådan havde jeg det i hvert fald for et par dage siden, da jeg helt tilfældigvis (not) befandt mig i Zara. Jeg havde set støvlerne på Instagram, og jeg måtte altså lige ind og prøve dem, selvom månedens budget ikke inkluderer nye sko. De passede mig desværre helt perfekt, og så kan man jo ikke bare efterlade dem i butikken.. Vel? 😉

English: I feels like the new semester and expensive books are very far away when you’re standing with a pair of great boots in your hand.. At least that’s how I felt when I coincidentally (not) found myself in the Zara store the other day. I saw the boots on Instagram a few weeks ago, and I just had to try them on. Unfortunately, they looked amazing on me, so I couldn’t just leave them behind.. Right? 😉

Last minute fashion week outfit!

Jeg prøver altid at planlægge mine outfits i god tid, og det er især vigtigt for mig, når det kommer til modeugen. Da jeg forleden var på vej ud af døren, opdagede jeg, at min skjorte var lidt for krøllet, og der var altså ikke tid til at stryge den. Jeg hev derfor alt ud af mit klædeskab, og endte med at tage min fine Marc Jacobs kjole på, som kan redde enhver tøjkrise. For at det ikke skulle blive alt for sort og hvidt, farvede jeg mine læber med den fedeste orange/rødlige liquid lipstick, og jeg er vild med det! Hvad synes I om looket? 🙂

English recap: I always love to plan my outfit before an event, but last week at fashion week, it went wrong. The shirt I had planned to wear was way too wrinkled, so I had to pull out everything from my closet in a rush. I ended up going with my Marc Jacobs dress, which can save any fashion emergency. I added red lips to make sure the look wasn’t too boring, and I really like it! What do you think? 🙂

Fashion Week Moments!

Jeg har stadigvæk et par ugers sommerferie tilbage, så jeg var glad for at kunne tilbringe et par dage i modeugens tegn i denne uge. Dagene stod på fede events og cool shows – alt i alt en super god omgang! Nedenfor finder i nogle billeder af mine yndlingsøjeblikke fra ugen der gik. Deltog I selv i modeugen, eller har I fulgt med på de sociale medier? 🙂

English: I’ve still got a few weeks left of my vacation before I go back to school, which meant that I had plenty of time to participate in Copenhagen Fashion Week. I went to some great evens and some cool shows, and I had a really nice couple of days. I want to show you some pictures from my favorite moments this past week. Do you have a favorite fashion week moment? 🙂
