Life has been a whirling roller coaster these past two weeks and I am feeling completely drained. In the mess that is my schedule these days I completely forgot to get this blog post ready for Monday. So, here we are, on Wednesday and without much inspiration to write. Last weekend Eline and I took time to go shooting for our blogs. After one shoot we got distracted by ice cream and just let it be. The week before we had also taken an attempt at…

Don’t sugarcoat it

Don’t sugarcoat it

While I had been shopping my wish-listed items for the upcoming fall season to my hearts content, Mother Nature decided it was time for a heat wave. Heat waves only mean two things to me: sunburns and sweat. Those two things happen to not look good in outfit photos, so that explains my absence from my blog and social media last week. I was also feeling a little under the weather (that’s punny) due to a little sickness, nervousness about new tasks at work …

Fragrance combining with Jo Malone

Fragrance combining with Jo Malone

I’ve always been fine without perfume. While all of my friends were obsessing over Marc Jacob’s Daisy or Chanel’s Coco Mademoiselle, I was completely lost about how and why high school girls could drop €50 and more on a bottle of scented water. That was, my friends, until I walked into Senteurs D’Ailleurs in Brussels and got acquainted with Jo Malone. Jo  Malone is different. The British brand is well-known for bringing out scents that no one else would think of. Their …

6 Topshop dresses you need in your wardrobe

6 Topshop dresses you need in your wardrobe

01 Plisse tank dress (€46) / 02 Slouchy 90s dress (€50) / 03 Pleated lace dress (€117) / 04 Mini wrap dress (€50) / 05 Dotted Wrap Playsuit (€68) / 06 Asymmetric drape dress (€40) Topshop, I have a love-hate affair with it. Generally I’m not a fan of the price-quality ratio, but they still manage to draw me in with their always up-to-date collections. This time their collection of dresses seriously got me excited! Number 6 is my favorite from the bunch. I wish…

The accidental capsule wardrobe

The accidental capsule wardrobe

8:30 PM and I’m standing on the Roosevelt square with some good old Volbeat songs zooming in my ears, waiting for my bus to come. I think this is the first time I’m writing a blog post on the go! We went out to diner with work tonight and that means typing my blog post on my phone tonight. And I suck at typing on this thing. I’ve been talking about my wardrobe purge for weeks on end now, but I’m really …

A Zara Affair

A Zara Affair

Zara trousers have a tendency to break my heart. It all started with a floral pair two years ago and now I find myself heartbroken again over these navy trousers. Our story started out well, with these pants and I being inseparable when I bought them in May. I never knew I was missing elegant, office-prove navy trousers in my life. They quickly became best wardrobe friends with my Sperry tops-siders and looked mighty fine with most of my shirts and sweaters. I had tens&…

Date night at the Tall Ships Race 2016

Date night at the Tall Ships Race 2016

A few weeks ago the Tall Ships Race took place in Antwerp and while the boats are well on their way to Lisbon by now, I still wanted to share a few of the snaps I took. My boyfriend and I met up with friends for dinner at Balls’n’Glory and took a detour to visit the TSR along the way. We saw the Tall Ships prepare for sail for the first time in 2010 and they left a might impression on us. This edition …

Easy weekend look

Easy weekend look

I’m writing this post quickly between dinner and laundry. I think my washing machine will only be a few more minutes so I’m going to keep this short and sweet. The days have been long and busy lately, with little time to sit down quietly and read blogs, keep up with YouTube or write my own blog posts. I feel like I’m losing my head in the disorderly mess that my life is right now. Fingers crossed I feel sturdy ground under …

My Rotterdam hotspots

My Rotterdam hotspots

I pinky swear that I am not a food blogger, yet this post is 99% food and coffee. My food photography is not on a high enough level to compete with the real food bloggers out there, but I wanted to share the places we visited during our two-day stay in Rotterdam last week. I always dive into my plate without checking if my shots are kind of blog-worthy, so forgive me for the blurry coffee cups and such. I didn’t want my lattes to …

Postcards from Rotterdam

Postcards from Rotterdam

Man, I think I fell in love again. Rotterdam, or as I like to call it “New York by De Nieuwe Maas”, had been on top of my travel list for a long time. I don’t know why I’ve never went there before, because the city has SO much to offer and is super easy to reach. Being only 70 kilometers from my home town, we can drive to Rotterdam in less than an hour! That’s closer than Brussels, not that I’ve …
