A Weekend in Lisbon

A Weekend in Lisbon

The ice cold winds, constant grey skies and rain have pushed me to throw my posting schedule around. Posting a new outfit simply is impossible when you can’t be outside to shoot the photos. But for once, my empty concepts folder didn’t cause a panic. Last Wednesday my boyfriend and I boarded a plane to Portugals’ capital to re-energize after our January exams. I originally planned to share all about our mini-trip on Thursday, but I really didn’t mind editing these photos …

Open garden days at Hex Castle

Open garden days at Hex Castle

      The Flemish province of Limburg is to me, without doubt, the most beautiful of all. Spread unevenly through  the hilly landscape are large estates and castles, such as the beautiful domain of Hex. After exploring the Haspengouw region in May, I subscribed to a newsletter to inform me about other fun events and the first email I received included an invitation to the open garden days. I’m a girl and I love castles, so I knew I had to be there. …

Christmas in Brussels

Christmas in Brussels

Brussels is a city that really had to grow on me. With Antwerp no more than a single bus ride away, I too often left Brussels aside. It was that city we always would always visit on school field trips, but apart our one hour of free play inside the natural history museum we never got to do much exploring. It’s only since the start of this school year that Brussels has become a favorite one-day getaway location for us. Only 40 minutes from Antwerp, …

5 hours in paris

5 hours in paris

                  So yeah, this happened. And I still cannot entirely believe that it did. At first, my weekend wasn’t looking up to be a good one. Lots of PowerPoint presentations to catch up on, tens of papers to read, an extra college to attend, spending all my leftover money on school books and feeling a little sick made me feel pretty stressed at the end of the week.  When K asked me on Saturday if I …

A day in Canterbury: My favorite spots

A day in Canterbury: My favorite spots

Canterbury and I… it could be a love story. On Saturday morning, my alarm clock went off on an hour so painfully early, I can’t even remember what I did the first few hours I was awake. 3:15am is never a good idea. Around 4, my mom brought me to the bus companies main parking, where a few other people were already waiting and a crew of bus drivers was busy to get a coach ready for the long drive. Exactly on time (4:30am) the&…

The Antwerp City Gardens

The Antwerp City Gardens

              You might remember my post about saturation (cleverly called “I can’t get no saturation”) last year, where I posted a pathetic two photos of a small trip we made to the city gardens. Shame on me. So when we were in Antwerp to clean up K’s apartment last week, I decided it was time to get the camera out again and see how my beloved flowers were doing. To say that they were doing great would …

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 …
