24

It’s my 24th birthday today! On my 23rd birthday I was looking forward to graduation, my first job and moving in with my boyfriend. Well, graduation took a little longer than expected and I haven’t found a full-time job, but we did find a beautiful, open and light apartment that is finally starting to feel like a home. We recently…

Flowering bluebells in Hallerbos

Years and years ago I made a bucket list of all the places I wanted to visit in Belgium. To this day, not many items have been scratched off, aside from exploring Brussels (which I’ve been doing lots of lately!). Not too far from Brussels is Halle, well-known for it’s beautiful Hallerbos. The Hallerbos is a forest that turns into…

Skechers Wijnegem Store Opening

Skechers recently opened its first mono-brand store in Wijnegem (Belgium) and I was there to check things out! My dear old friend L was in need of some retail therapy and what better way to fight the wardrobe blues than to go shoe shopping! Not that I needed any more shoes, but *spoiler alert* I found the Skechers pair of…

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…

Sweet Lemon kindly asked me to make a small wishlist from their webshop and later sent me one pair as a surprise to style in future outfits. When the shoe box came I…

ZEB Cocorun Launch

This summer I worked as a shop assistant for ZEB, a large Belgian fashion retailer. That summer job might have assured my daily work out got done (squatting, lifting, fast-walking and overall dancing should be in any shop assistants job description), it was nothing compared to what we did last Saturday at the Cocorun launch event for Bloggers. Together with…

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…

The perfect black ankle boots

My name is Nikki and I’m a shoe-addict. I don’t know what’s gotten into me, but lately I’ve been on a shoe-buying spree and added three new pairs to my wardrobe in just a few weeks. That’s more shoes than I bought in the whole year 2015. Shoes are not my thing (Well, were not my thing) and I’ve always…
