This summer me, my sister and my dad spent a weekend in Copenhagen. Such a lovely city with so much life – and oh, how I love the Danish people. The trip mainly consisted of sightseeing, eating and SHOPPING. I didn’t spend too much money, considering I was on the edge of being broke that month. But Copenhagen has so many shops that we don’t have here in Norway, so I had to splurge just a little bit.
Firstly, I had some make up items on the top of my list:
The Urban Decay NAKED SKIN concealer had been on my wish-list for a long time, as my previous concealer had run out and I wanted to try a new brand. And I have to say, this is worth all the rage. It has very good coverage and does not end up creasing, which I find is often a struggle with concealers.
Secondly, I had to get myself a new mascara. This is the IsaDora Big Bold Mascara, which I personally think is really good, especially based on the fact that it is not pricy at all! When it comes to mascara I usually always buy either this one or the Smashbox Full Exposure Mascara.
Then, being at Sephora(which we don’t have at home!!), I had to get my hands on two Sleek pallettes. Firstly, I just love the simplistic black packaging and secondly, they are also quite cheap!
This is the Sleek Cream Contour Kit in the shade Light. Been wanting to buy a Contour Kit for so long, so I just had to buy this one. Kinda wish I had bought a powder one though.
Secondly, I bought the i-Divine Au Naturel Eyeshadow Palette. And aren’t these colors just gorgeous? I especially fell in love with the two glittery shades Conker and Taupe.
Tried to do a swatch of the two. Taking a picture of my own arm turned out harder than it seemed, though. Really looking forward to putting this palette to the test this fall, and try to create some cool smoky looks. Btw, all the makeup items above are cruelty free, meaning they have not been tested on animals. Buying cruelty free makeup is very easy and there are a lot of good CF brands out there. Just a small, but important sidetrack from my side.
Next up: Clothing. As I had already bought a lot of new clothes for summer, I only bought two pieces of clothing in Copenhagen, but my oh my, do I love them both!
When I walked into TopShop this skirt instantly screamed for my attention. It basically felt like it was calling on me from heaven. I mean, look at it!! The flower prints reminds me of primary school when we used to iron different prints(flowers, teddys etc) onto our denim and feel like the coolest kids in town, anyone else??
I’d been wanting a denim skirt for so long and this was just beyond everything i wished for. It was a bit pricy, being from TopShop and all, but seriously worth it!
A new obsession for me when it comes to clothing shops is New Yorker, so guess who found the perfect dress the second she walked into this shop? Me, me, me.
A very simple, yet super pretty dress, that I’ve worn a lot this summer.
Last, but not least, we went into Urban Outfitters, the store I’m probably the most upset about not existing here in Norway. (I mean, come on, we deserve all these beautiful things too??) Since I was trying to save my money I did resist from emptying the shop completely, I actually did quite well and came out with only a daily journal + some galaxy fairy lights(that were on sale!!).
Isn’t this notebook the cutest? I just couldn’t resist.
These are the galaxy fairylights that I bought. There is something so calming about having these kind of lights turned on in the evening, especially now in fall, while reading a book or just relaxing. I’m happy I bought these on sale though, as they were reduced from 110DKK(ca. £ 13) to 30DKK(ca. £ 3), and I actually would have been disappointed if I payed full price only to see that there weren’t that many lights in the package.
As you can probably understand, I am most satisfied with everything that I bought. It’s often easier to go shopping when you are trying to save money because it makes you prioritize a bit and only buy the things you want the most.
Hope you enjoyed this kind of ‘haul blog post’, there will most definitely be more. Let me know what items you liked the most in the comments!
