A day in Lille, France

A day in Lille, France

On Thursday we drove down to Lille for some shopping! Well, actually my sister shopped, my mom paid and I was just beeing annoying and snapping a million photos of them. I had a pretty exhausting two days in the city. So much shops to do in so little time! I’ve found a perfect replacement for my trusty old levis and I may or may not have bought another striped tee. On arrive sur le sixième étage! This would make a lovely backdrop for outfit photos, no?   Rue de Béthune, home to …

Friends who are good photographers

Friends who are good photographers

As you are reading this I’m enjoying a hot cuppa coffee in a sweet little café in Lille, France with my mom and sister. We’re here for the day to shop the new collections and enjoy some time away from our hectic home. If I have to believe my mom, living with 4 teenagers can be hard… Wait, what does she mean by that?  Since the boyfriend doesn’t really like to be my photographer all the time, and I’m still not used to the whole tripod thing I asked my …

Comfy knits

Comfy knits

I bought this cosy sweaterdress long before winter hit. I fell in love with the big cowl and pretty tan colour. I meant to wear it during those horribly cold days when the temperatures would not even reach -10°C, but honstely, I had totally forgotten about it! I rediscovered it at the bottom of my closet a few days ago and decided to style it up and give it a chance on the blog. I sweat my ass off that morning.  Wearing: H&M sweaterdress, F21 Ring, Footwork Boots Oh look, It’s my face! …

I’m spending this evening watching episodes of The Daily Show and enjoying the box of chocolates the boyfriend gave me as a late Valentines day gift. He sure knows how to make this girl happy! Enjoy your weekends!  XO Nikki

Spring Favorites

I skipped the (almost) obligated Valentines day post yesterday. I didn’t do anything romantic anyway, so you missed nothing! I spent the day alone in my study trying to figure out how those 4 big books about our Belgian social security system should be used. I also tried to find a place to stock siad books, but no luck on that. They’re on the floor as you read this. These books came in a big, heavy box and so I wasn’t able to go visit the boyfriend at his college yesterday. We’ll see …

Friends who know about them places

Friends who know about them places

 I’m talking about my friend Susan here, who knows about all the places to be in Antwerp. We went shopping on Saturday (outfit post coming asap) and then we went for a walk around town to find a good spot for a quick photoshoot. It was freeeeeeeeezing and so Susan took us to Bartilia for a cup of hot chocolate to warm up. The bar was decorated with the most tacky 70s decorations you’ll ever see but I loved it. And the whipped cream.. devine! How was your weekend?  Bartilia Falconplein 43 Antwerp …
