All-Black in Summer

All-Black in Summer

I have one simple rule for dressing during a heat wave: Avoid sleeves at all costs. It is no wonder then, that I have been living in this sleeveless top the past few weeks. Or wait, it actually is… . I wore this top more times this summer than I have in total all the years that I’ve owned it, haha. I bought it on a whim at Massimo Dutti a few years back, when mock necks were really ‘in’ and I thought this basic&…

A Little Black Dress For Spring

A Little Black Dress For Spring

I don’t buy items on a whim very often. Usually when I see something I like, I will check back on it a few times before I actually make a purchase. My modus operandi doens’t always prevent bad buys, but it has kept me from buying things that I often really seem to want at first, but would probably forget about within a week. This dress, however, was purchased within 60 seconds. And I would have been even faster if I hadn’t secured …

Men’s Shirts and Short Skirts

Men’s Shirts and Short Skirts

From a young age on I’ve loved crime series such as the overly suspenseful CSI Miami and the quintessential British show Midsomer Murders. On Netflix, I devoured the first two seasons of How To Get Away With Murder (which may or may not have had something to do with Jack Falahee) and watched pretty much all crime documentaries within a few weeks after signing up. I know, I’m weird. Since I’m still waiting for Netflix to release S3 of HTGAWM I was …

Smartphone photography: Black Eye Wide Angle Lens review

Smartphone photography: Black Eye Wide Angle Lens review

Exciting news! Exciting news! One week from today I am travelling to Barcelona! Well, if the announced airport strike doesn’t throw a spanner in the works. I haven’t done much planning yet, but I do know what will be the first thing that I pack: my Black eye wide angle lens. And here are the reasons. On a rather rainy day I decided to get ahead and work on some blog content that I had planned. Our apartment has beautiful light, even in …

Bedroom decoration

Bedroom decoration

With a boyfriend who is quite pleased with the way the apartment looks right now, I have taken it upon me to really get space decorated. The home office/dressing room was a no-brainer and we decided pretty quickly on how we wanted to decorate our living room as well (still a plan in progress though), but the bedroom? No. The bedroom still is just a big room with not much more than a bed. We don’t even have light up in there. Now …

Making a home with Hema

Making a home with Hema

As some of you may know, I transferred to uni this summer to chase a masters degree in Sociology. When I was studying Social Work, I used to commute to school everyday. It took a two hour bus drive to get there, with long stops and two switches in between that I absolutely hated. Since the university of Antwerp was even further away, my parents and I made the decision that it was best for me to look out for a studio in the city&…

Photography: Into sunset

Photography: Into sunset

  Last week Mother Nature spoiled us with beautiful clear blue skies during the day, which gave the best colorful sunsets in the late evening. One of these evenings I met up with a friend of mine to test his new Canon 70-300 mm telezoom lens and to see how it would preform next to my 55-300. We choose a spot on the bikers bridge going over the Canal in Turnhout, Belgium to set up our gear. Because sunsets are low-light situations I figured it&…

I want to ride my Bycicle

      K and I went for one last stroll through the city a warm evening before the beginning of his exam period. I took my camera with me, like always. I don’t really know why, but I was photographing every old bike, Vespa scooter or floral anything we passed along our walk. I shot these photos with free handed, not really looking at what was in focus or minding the composition. I was in a mood to do random things that night. Some&…

Scenes of  winter

Scenes of winter

Forget what I said about winter in a last post. When I opened up my curtains on Wednesday morning, there was a big cover a fluffy white crystals covering the landscape. The snow on my neighbor’s roof almost blinded me, as the sun reflected heavily of the snow surface. A true winter wonderland. The bus to school did not show up as expected. So slightly in panic I ran back to the house and practically commanded my dad to bring me to the city …

Studyin’ Studyin’ Yeah!

Studyin’ Studyin’ Yeah!

It’s that time of year where the Belgian students dive into their books and are glued to their desk and college benches for 3 weeks on end. Some have started already, but I still have until Monday to prepare for my first. My first exam is the biggest bullet to bite. Social Law is no smallie. This year it’s about pensions and special governmental funds for the elderly and low-income families. Thus, A lot of rules to learn! Second is a course of which …
