How Pokémon Go Is Saving My Blog

How Pokémon Go Is Saving My Blog

Since the launch of Pokémon Go it has been easier than ever to convince my boyfriend to visit different locations and do shoots for the blog. They should have released the app five years ago! These photos were taken near the canal that runs through our town and that apparently houses water Pokémons and Weedles. The water tower a bit further down the road has turned into a Gym and someone placed a “Lure” on the local church so …

A Love For Pink and Grey

A Love For Pink and Grey

If you thought my new job had gotten the best of me, well, you’re pretty right. I’m not in for much activity after coming home and am usually fast asleep by 8:30pm. It’s not hard to choose between active thinking/writing or mindlessly watching OITNB in such a state. Blogging has been a bit of a task lately, but I have kept working hard behind the scenes. Exciting, but mostly long overdue changes are coming up and I can&…

Let Loose

Let Loose

Since starting my new job I’ve donated two garbage bags full of clothes and got rid of four pairs of worn out shoes. It’s fair to say that I was holding on to pieces of clothing that didn’t really fit me right anymore or that I had gotten tired of just for the sake of having something to wear. With no income for almost a year, my shopping sprees were limited and I only really bought things I really …

AD | My Skechers Performance Go Step Sneakers

In my post about the Skechers store opening in Wijnegem I gave away that I didn’t leave the shop empty handed. It took me a while, but I finally found a moment to shoot my favorite outfit with my new Skechers Go Step sneakers! My sneakers are a lovely beige-white print on a lightweight mesh fabric, making them perfect for the warmer times ahead. I can wear them under dresses and skirts and add a cool-factor to my looks, without having sweaty feet …

A New Chapter

A New Chapter

This blog and its readers have been with me through many life changes. No less than 6 anniversaries with my boyfriend have been celebrated on The Ginger Diaries and our seventh is in just a few days. I’ve written about when we moved into our first apartment last July and recently shared an update on how things looked after nine months. My academic career has been well documented with posts about graduating high school, my first day in college, starting and ending my internships, …

Under The Blooming Trees

Under The Blooming Trees

Among the bluebells, under the blooming trees, … . It should be clear by now that I am not the most creative blogger when it comes to my post titles. I do however believe that my locations have been rather on point lately, haha. I’ve been wearing lots of soft grey this Spring and am pulling out my black blazer – that I have a love-hate relationship with – on most days too. My new New Balance sneakers are the pride of my feet, …

Among the Blooming Bluebells

Among the Blooming Bluebells

Some people have a travel bucket list, but I have a shoot location bucket list too (and, well, one with coffee bars). Am I weird for that? On the location list for Spring are the blossoms in Haspengouw (see an old shoot we did there here), the blossoms in Zeeland, the yellow flower fields in the Liereman reservate, the Keukenhof Tulip Gardens and the Hallerbos near Brussels. My friend K, who will be very pleased to read she has been included in yet another blog&…

Hello There, Sunshine!

Hello There, Sunshine!

The mid-day sun is far from ideal for taking outfit photo’s, but when the boyfriend is in a good mood I have to jump at the chance! We just came back from Ikea with the last bits and pieces for our apartment when I remembered the beguinage in Hoogstraten would be a perfect location to shoot my outfit of the day. Spring had beautifully sprung as the daffodils were in full bloom, making a pretty backdrop for my basic look. Simple jeans, white …

The Odd One Out

The Odd One Out

The rain is clattering against the windows and I have the lights on inside because it’s almost too dark to see without. We might have felt the first signs of Spring this weekend, the April Showers haven’t been too long in coming. My friend S came by our apartment for the first time on Friday and brought me gorgeous Spring Snowflakes (Leucojum) in a fine white flower pot. On our windowsill sit two more pots with daffodils, who’s beauty …

Jeans + Blazer

Howdy mates! K has been playing Irish shanty’s all morning so please excuse me if I write like a pirate today. I should not have dug up Assassin’s Creed during our Spring clean this weekend. After living together for little over half a year, we decided to go through every drawer and every closet to see which items we haven’t used in all this time. We collected a lot of random bits to donate to our local second hand …
