Time for a Haul

Happy New Year, everyone! Hope you’ve all come off to a good start of 2017! As the title implies: New Year, New Me, New Clothes. Well, not really. I’m actually quite happy with where I am as a person now and for the new year I will try to embrace that and develop even more as a person. Clothingwise I haven’t really found much of any interest in the sales this season, but there are a few pieces that I just couldn’t resist(some of them weren’t even on sale, I just had to have them)!

BikBok Billy Pullover in Pastel Pink.

I feel like this is the type of sweather that you don’t even need to touch to know that it’s soft, you can just see it. And it’s so soft. I’m also loving this pastel pink color as it really brightens up any outfit for winter.

BikBok Will t-shirt with Roses.

I just thought this t-shirt was so cool and unique, and at the same time very simple. Perfect to spice up an all black outfit. I later found out that there’s another version of this t-shirt with little birds on it and it’s so pretty. Perfect to combine with light denim in the summer. I will go back to get it. (Find it here).

BikBok Mia Sweater, Furry Black.

I used to own a sweater like this and I loved it so much, but somehow it just disappeared and I’ve never found it again. So when I found this (almost) replica of it I got really happy. It’s super fluffy and cosy and also really warm.

The next one isn’t clothing, but this beautiful notebook. If you didn’t know I am a great Harry Potter fan and this classic black book caught my eye instantly. Not to mention, I have an obsession for pretty stationairy. The only problem is that it’s so pretty that I don’t want to waste the use of it. I want to use it for something really nice. Any ideas?

Lastly I bought this white lace bralette from Lindex tha I just found so delicate and pretty. It made me think that I need to find a way to combine lace more in my outfits, it can be so beautiful if worn the right way.

Thank you so much for reading. As you may see, I’ve done some small changes to my design. I’m really working on keeping my blog top quality and well written for the new year so that I can be proud of everything I post. I’m thinking about doing a Q&A post some time in the near future as well, so if you have any questions you’re dying to get answered, please include them in your comment, that would mean a lot! Hope you’re all having a great day. You’re all amazing.

Wednesday’s Shopping Trip

So, as I mentioned in my previous blog post, me and my friend, Elise, had a little shopping trip on Wednesday. As I also mentioned, I wasn’t really supposed to buy anything. I guess you all probably see how well that plan went… Shopping ban on you from now on, Ingrid.

Anyways, I thought I’d run you through what I bought as I am truly pleased with everything and will without doubt be wearing them a lot. All of the pieces, especially the two jackets, are things I’ve been thinking about buying for a long time. Justifyes spending money on them a little more, right?….

1. MONKI Bomber Jacket.

img_3405img_3404

As some of you may recall I did a blog post a long time ago along the lines of “Fall Essentials” where I raged about the bomber jackets and how much I wanted one. Thing is, every time I’ve tried one on in the store I’ve just felt like it didn’t suit me at all or just made me look puffy and weird, so when I finally came across one that suited me I just had to purchase it, even though it’s a little bit cold for one now. A bomber jacket is a great transition jacket for both Fall and Spring, so I will definitely get a lot of use out of this one. (Will probably wear it in Winter as well, yolo)

2. MONKI Coat.

Next up, this very cute black coat which I think will be perfect for the more dressed up occations. I’ve figured that a coat will never go off trend and is therefore always the perfect Fall/Winter jacket. This one can also be worn in many different ways, opened or closed, depending on what style you are going for.

3. MONKI Burgundy Scarf.

Can you tell we spend a lot of time in Monki? Hahah.
Monki is actually one of my favorite clothing stores, and even though I only went for basic clothing this time, they have so many unique and colorful pieces. Especially their sock collection, loving it, haha. Anyways, a huge blanket scarf always comes in handy in these cold months and as I only have a grey one I thought I needed one with some color as well. I also really want to get a scarf in mustard, but this time I went for burgundy.

4. BikBok Burgundy Headband.

I’m actually really about the headbands these days as they serve both the purpose of looking pretty as well as keeping your ears warm. I spotted this perfect velvet headband near the cashier desk at BikBok and I knew I had to pick it up. It is so soft and comfy, and at the same time makes me look oh so, Blair Waldorf-y(in a good way).

5. BikBok Beige Pants.

I spotted these pants at BikBok and I told my friend that “I really want a pair of pants like these, but I never know when I could wear them as I feel they are so formal!”
We then came to the agreement that I could wear the pants whenever I wanted to and when I saw how well they fitted me, especially in the waist, I was sold. These pants are literally so comfortable as well. It’s like wearing PJ’s to a party, yayy. Definitely hope to get a lot of use outta these.

Hope you are all having a wonderful Friday and heading in for a wonderful weekend as well! I will hopefully get a fun outfit post up on Sunday/Monday!

PS: I passed 200 followers on here the other day! Thank you soo much to everyone for all your support and being so lovely all the time. It means the world. x

PPS: I have an Instagram and it’s @ingsepingsen and it’s kinda cool.

What I bought in Copenhagen

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:

img_1824

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!

img_1838

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.

img_1842

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.

img_1854

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!
