• Spring Fever: The Perfect Coat For Changing Seasons

    For a few days it seemed like Spring had sprung here in Belgium. The sun was all out and for the first time in the new year I could go to work wearing a single layer and one of my trusty blazers. Oh how I had looked forward to wearing my blazers again! But when I returned from Copenhagen (blog post coming soon!) all I found was grey skies and drizzling rain. I put my blazers back on the hook and grabbed my newest wardrobe…

    Hipster guide to Cozumel, Mexico

    Hipster guide to Cozumel, Mexico

    Mexico, land of taco’s and Tequila, was the very last stop before our ship returned to Miami. I hadn’t read up on the city and from what I knew it was a shopping place for tourists. Playa del Carmen and Tulum aren’t far off, so I was expecting Cozumel to be buzzing with people. In reality, Cozumel was the most peaceful and calm place we visited and quite possibly the most colorful too. Let’s take a tour! The cruise terminal was …

    La Pura Vida in Puerto Limòn, Costa Rica

    La Pura Vida in Puerto Limòn, Costa Rica

    Puerto Limòn was one of my favorite stops during our MSC Cruise. Known as the land of Sloths, bananas and coffee I should have know even before docking into the port that this day was going to be a good one! “First things first!” we thought and we went off to explore the city center. It’s a very small town that you can easily cover on foot in just a few short hours. First we walked through the busy shopping streets and then …

    Monkey business on the Panama Canal

    Monkey business on the Panama Canal

    After our visit to colorful Cartagena our ship made way for the port of Cristóbal, Panama. Cristóbal seems to have a bad reputation. We were adviced by our agency to book an excursion for the day and there was talk about holdups and armed robberies on the ship. Once we arrived there was police all around our cruise ship. We had docked in the port itself, next to a line of container ships. After breakfast we got on board of an excursion bus. …

    Get on your Dr. Martens boots!

    Get on your Dr. Martens boots!

    Boy, oh boy. I’m trying to collect all of my thoughts and stories about Dr. Martens and put them into one coherent story, but nothing I write tonight feels good. It’s not because I have nothing to say about my 1460’s. There are plenty of story lines I could go for! I could tell you about how I always thought that most people look like Tom Thumb in the Ogre’s seven-league boots. Or I could let you in on the very profound …

    The Colors of Cartagena, Colombia

    The Colors of Cartagena, Colombia

    Arrrr, welcome to Cartagena! When leaving the cruise terminal we were greeted by a rather feathery welcome committee. Apart from a dozen Ara’s there were a flock of flamingo’s and some devilishly looking predatory birds in what seemed to be a mini zoo. It was a little strange, but a lot of fun to be welcomed into the city this way! As colorful as the animals were, so was the city! We walked from the terminal to the Old Town so we could …

    A Day At Dunn’s River Falls in Ochos Rios

    A Day At Dunn’s River Falls in Ochos Rios

    Jamaica was the first of the 5 stops of our cruise through the Caribbean sea. I knew little about the country, but rumors were that it’s one of the world’s top destinations for beach weddings. I’m not the beach-y type, but I must admit that I was curious to learn why everybody seems to love the white sands, clear blue waters, palmtrees and dolphins so much. Yes my friends, there were dolphins! As the ship came sailing in, everyone stood out on the …

    Bienvenido A Miami

    Bienvenido A Miami

    I’ve always wanted to go to Miami. I don’t exactly remember where my dream originated from, but my best guess would be CSI. Horatio Cane and his team looked so fly rolling over overseas highways in their Hummers, with Ray-Bans on and Blackberries in hand. In the early 2000s that was probably the coolest things could get. I grew up. I reached the age where I was allowed a cellphone only to discover that Blackberry was so 2000 and late and that the classic …

    Starstruck

    Starstruck

    One of the oldest memories I have about shopping is from the day my parents gave me a little pink bottle of Zodiac perfume at Pimkie in the Wijnegem shopping center. I must have been around 9 or 10, but I can still perfectly imagine the Taurus scent today. This little pink bottle was the only thing I ever bought at Pimkie until recently. 15 years wiser and with Jo Malone’s Wood Sage & Sea Salt as my mature signature scent, I stepped inside the…

    The It-sweater Of The Season

    The It-sweater Of The Season

    Oversized? Check! off-white? Check! Cable knit? Check! Say hello to this years most wanted knit sweater! The best part? It’s only €40! There’s so much I could say about this sweater, but really social media has done all the talking for me. I’ve seen this sweater on Pinterest and Instagram more than avocado’s and colorful vegan breakfast bowls combined (and that means something). The combinations people have come up with are also endless. I personally love to wear it most with leggings …

    My outfit for New Years Eve

    My outfit for New Years Eve

    Before we really kick off a month full of travel posts, I wanted to share one of my Holiday outfits with you. I know… I know… I am late as always. Blogging + renovating + full time job + my planning skills = disaster. This was supposed to be my NYE outfit, but eventually I swapped for comfy trousers and a loose cardigan that night. Comfort above all as we had a real food fest with friends and hung on the couch for hours afterwards!…
