The €25 blazer I’m Obsessed With

Me and my blazers, it’s a never-ending love story. I have about ten. I think. Maybe more. And I wear them with love. This season I really wanted to join in on the Prince of Wales trend, but didn’t want to drop the cash for a large winter coat in the check print. I like the classic style, but I wasn’t sure if the trend was just another Instagram-one-day-wonder and would feel very “October 2017” soon. Instead I searched and found a jacket that I…

Sothys Skincare Review

Sothys Skincare Review

A beauty post on The Ginger Diaries. What a wonder that you get to live to see this great day! I have another wonder I’d like to talk about: Sothys skincare. Sothywho? Sothys truly is a hidden gem among the skin care brands of this world. Let me prove my point. Everyone, Raise your hand if you’ve ever heard about Babor Skincare. Now raise your hand if you’ve ever heard about Sothys before. I imagine a lot less hands are raised. And …

Tips For Buying The Perfect Bag For Hand Luggage Travelling

Tips For Buying The Perfect Bag For Hand Luggage Travelling

On almost all of my city trips I travel with hand luggage only. Check-in luggage usually means extra costs, more waiting time at the airport, extra weight to carry,… . Just a whole lot of hassle that I can’t be bothered with! I’m currently using a very old Converse Bowling Bag as my carry-on bag. It’s big enough to keep an outfit or three, my camera gear and basic necessities. The back pocket of the bag is useful to store my passport and …

Men’s Shirts and Short Skirts

Men’s Shirts and Short Skirts

From a young age on I’ve loved crime series such as the overly suspenseful CSI Miami and the quintessential British show Midsomer Murders. On Netflix, I devoured the first two seasons of How To Get Away With Murder (which may or may not have had something to do with Jack Falahee) and watched pretty much all crime documentaries within a few weeks after signing up. I know, I’m weird. Since I’m still waiting for Netflix to release S3 of HTGAWM I was …

A Four Day Itenerary For Copenhagen

A Four Day Itenerary For Copenhagen

Copenhagen happened by accident. I know, I know. How do you accidentally board an airplane to Denmark? But you have to believe me. One moment I was in rainy ole Belgium, the next I was in freezing ole Denmark. It all started when my friend B, who I went to elementary school with, asked for advice for her solo city trip. I think she was doubting between Dublin, Barcelona and Copenhagen and needed help deciding. I shared what I knew, but didn’t have much …

Rocking Levis 501 Mom Jeans

Rocking Levis 501 Mom Jeans

I never thought dressing like my mom in the eighties was going to feel this good. Dang it, these high-waisted straight-legged jeans are awesome. In the past year or so I really became a jeans wearer and I expanded my collection from one sad pair of blue jeans to about five. I love how much more wear I get out of my tops, blouses and sweaters now! Most of my jeans are a skinny fit and I have grown tired of wearing the same style&…

The Bernadette Cardigan

The Bernadette Cardigan

dress: Scapa | cardigan: Street One | shoes:Aldo | bag: Michael Kors Sutton I used to be obsessed with dresses. A few years ago, I had more dresses than there are days in a month and I was playing with the idea of doing a ’30 days of dresses’ kind of thing here on my blog. I never got my boyfriend so far to take outfit pictures every single day for 30 days and by now most of those dresses are gone too. However, I…

The Best White Lace Tops & Blouses Of The Moment

The Best White Lace Tops & Blouses Of The Moment

top: Vila | jeans: Mango | shoes: Aldo | bag: Hilfiger (c/o SKM) I have this thing with white lace, crochet and embroidery. Currently I have three white laces dresses and one white lace blouse hanging in my wardrobe and there’s a – hopefully – gorgeous crochet top on its way to my doorstep. It’s safe to say I have an addiction, haha. Finding that perfect lace design in a good quality fabric was not easy, though. I’ve been wanting and searching for pretty lace…

A Pop Of Pink

A Pop Of Pink

top: & Other Stories | jeans: Levis | sneakers: Vans Old Skool I love the shift in nature between summer and fall. That moment in time where the lush green leaves gently fade to yellow, the sunlight gets less bright and the air gets crispier. One of my favorite places to go at the end of summer is the heath, because while the flowers are withering and the greens go brown, the purple bushes on the heath go into full bloom. It’s a truly magnificent…

The Striped Skirt I Can’t Get Enough Of

The Striped Skirt I Can’t Get Enough Of

skirt: Comptoirs des Cotonniers | silk shirt: Comptoirs des Cotonniers | shoes: Aldo | bag: Michael Kors Okay, okay. One more slightly summer-y outfit, because I can’t seem to let go of my summer wardrobe entirely just yet. This skirt was one of my favorite buys this summer, but thanks to the Belgian weather I couldn’t wear it as much I wanted to. Mother Nature is currently blessing us with a gorgeous Indian summer (*knocks on wood*) and that gave me the opportunity to pull…

Say It With With A Slogan Tee

Say It With With A Slogan Tee

T-shirt: Brownie | jeans: Levis | shoes: Vans Hello, Baby! I admit I flash this T-shirt at my boyfriend sometimes, haha. Or at my friends. Oops. “Say it with a slogan tee” has been everyone’s motto the past few months or at least it seems so when I look at my Instagram feed. As always I’m a laggard. I love the idea of slogan tees, but never really felt like they fit with my everyday style. I’m Plain Jane when it comes to clothing …
