• 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…

    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 bought the last bits and pieces for the living area and once I get K to clean up his messes I&…

    Flowering Bluebells In Hallerbos

    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 a fairy tale-like scene every Spring. Shades of white and yellow slowly turn into shades of purple as daffodils and white …

    Skechers Wijnegem Store Opening

    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 my dreams. 12 years ago… When I was in High School Skechers had its first moment right after the Von Dutch / Scapa / Converse…

    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 …

    AD | Sweet Lemon Mules For Spring

    AD | Sweet Lemon Mules For Spring

    Oh sweet goodness I did it again. This time with a little help from my friends though, as these elegant mules were a gift from Sweet Lemon. 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 had no idea which pair I’d find inside, but to my excitement they were my favorites from the bunch! I already have a …

    AD | ZEB Cocorun Launch Event

    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 a personal trainer a group of bloggers got to put ZEBs very own first sports collection to the test.  The verdict? Well… My …

    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 …

    The Perfect Black Ankle Boots

    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 been pretty much a basic bitch when it comes to footwear: a few pairs …

    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 …

    The Silver Lining

    The Silver Lining

    I believe it was the year 2000. I was eight. Or about to turn eight. ‘Freestyler’ from the Bombfunk MC’s was my favorite song, I knew the first 151 Pokémons by heart and platform shoes were the bomb diggity. I remember that I had a pair. They were baby blue, buffalo-style and horrible, but I loved them. I went to high school in 2004 and quickly learned that platforms had become an absolute no-go when someone a few years older pointed at …
