A Day in Venice

A Day in Venice

    Three years ago I was a senior year and the school I went to organized a ten day trip to Italy during spring break. We visited Venice on the last day of that trip and it was a bit of a bad day for me. I was exhausted, it was really hot, very crowded and we were free to roam the streets…. without a map, so we got lost and spend the majority of our time searching our way back to the San&…

A day in Florence

A day in Florence

I took a little break from the blog the last week to enjoy a weekend away with friends. Unexpectedly, we decided to stay in the Belgian Ardennes a day longer. I came home late on Monday and I still had to shoot and edit new outfit photos. Not something I was into after the three hour drive home. To make up for it, I have an overload of photos from our day trip to Florence to share with you today! On the third day of&…

A weekend in Bologna

A weekend in Bologna

Oh Italy! Country of wine and cheese, prosciutto and salt-free bread. Never eat bread in Italy. Never. On the 22nd of June K and I boarded a plane for a last-minute getaway to the sun. With a temperatures up to 30°C all day every day, we enjoyed ice creams while walking through the tiny streets of Bologna, the massive crowds in Firenze and over the cutest little bridges in Venice. Today I’m sharing my pictures from Bologna. Located in central northern Italy, this city …

Beautiful Haspengouw

Beautiful Haspengouw

    Imagine a land, with nothing but blooming trees and little lambs frolicking through immense fields of dandelions and grass. Imagine sunshine and happy faces. Kids with ice cream on the tips of their nose, running around you while you’re trying to keep your balance so you don’t drop your camera. Imagine Belgium. Last week I was watching the weather forecast, a rarity, when the weatherman mentioned Haspengouw, the fruit region in the east of Belgium. He had me glued to the …

Antwerp botanical garden

Antwerp botanical garden

          I’ve been secretly coming to Antwerp since I was about 14. I took the bus to school and on Wednesdays we always had half the day off. The bus to the city left right across from my bus home. I always lied that a friend was with me, but in reality I was often taking the one hour bus ride on my own. My mom would kill me if she knew. In the beginning I’d wander around the shopping …

The London Diaries: A walk by the Thames & Harrods

The London Diaries: A walk by the Thames & Harrods

    After visiting Covent Garden we made D-tour to greet Londons main tourist attractions The London Eye and Westminster Abbey. It was pretty cold and windy that afternoon, so I consider this long walk not our best idea of that day. It felt a as bit of a reward to spot a cute, almost hidden bakery from behind my wild windswept locks. Seriously, that’s the reason there’s no pictures of me really. Terrible hair. From Westminster we took the tube down to …

The London Diaries: Soho & Covent Garden

The London Diaries: Soho & Covent Garden

      I’m typing this post with one hand while the other is pressing a cold water compress to my badly twisted right ankle ankle, my two knee braces are supporting my swollen knees and I have a big bruise on my left shoulder. Did I fall of my bike, you ask? No, I spend three days in the wonderful city in London. Remember that awesome but stupid thing I did in early December? K and I spontaneously booked a trip to London. …

A day in Düsseldorf, Germany

A day in Düsseldorf, Germany

Cold, mist, rain and wind could ruin our Christmas spirit last Thursday. We’re hardcore. Mom, grandma and I drove down to Düsseldorf in Germany on a grey morning to enjoy a day full of lights, gifts, funny Christmas mugs, mulled wine, hot cocoa, reibekuchen and lots and lots of shopping. Grandma bought me the prettiest hat and mom got me a new winter coat after dad shrunk my old one. I have no idea how he managed to do that! I can’t …

New York: Finest moments

Sorry for the cloverfield effect in the video. Walking and filming don’t go that well together. So… you might want to hear a few fun things that went down in the big ole’ city of New York, don’t you? Besides drinking more coffee daily than I would on a weekly basis and spending my yearly shopping budget in two weeks, here’s some fun stories! First of all, we ended up in an elevator with a bunch of friendly hyperactive Asian kids who …
