Every once in a blue Monday

Every once in a blue Monday

florals pants: Zara • blue shirt: Gap • ballet flats: Scapa  I’m having what seems to be the worst blue Monday of my short lifetime. Yesterday I arrived at our apartment building for my last week of classes before Spring break, in happy-dance party mode of course, and found the hallway flooded. Tiles had been lifted from the concrete floor which had burst, the carpet was stained and the smell was … I’m sure you can imagine somethings when I say “open sewer”. Our landlord came to our rescue and shut down the …

  Jo Malone Peonies & Blush Suede Cologne 35ml • coral nailpolish Kiko #359/22839 • lilac nailpolish Kiko #330/22091   A beauty post? On The Ginger Diaries? Well, waddayaknow, I can still be a little bit surprising! Those who follow me on Instagram may have noticed that I was on a quest to find the perfect perfume, and that my quest eventually ended when I sniffed Jo Malone’s Peonies & Blush Suede. I just love it! When we were in Brussels just after Christmas, my boyfriend and I made a stop at Senteurs D’Ailleurs (Place Stéphanie 1…

Baby Blue Jeans

      top: J.Crew • jeans: Zara • ballet flats: Scapa • earrings: Twice as Nice   I’m slowly getting used to having the wind mess with my hair. Or maybe I should plan my shoot locations better. It was the first time I wore my baby blue jeans with something other than a navy stripe top and must say this refreshing combination is likely to become a new favorite this season! I’m usually not into pastel colors because I’m fair skinned, but putting on this outfit convinced me that it could …

Happy Spring!

Happy Spring!

We didn’t really have a winter this year. I saw snow only one evening, on my walk home from K’s studio apartment. Even though snow always causes many transportation problems in the city, feeling those first snowflakes fall on my cold nose made me feel a little bit happy. In my mind, I was already imagining the white landscapes I could photograph.

How a pair of floral pants broke the bank, my promises and my heart

How a pair of floral pants broke the bank, my promises and my heart

pants: Zara • blazer: Zara • top: Zara • ballet flats: Scapa I am a weak soul. I broke both my shop-stop and my high street shopping diet in one impulsive shopping moment. Since September, I managed to stay on the safe side of the shopping streets, and even on vacation I resisted the gorgeous pieces from the Massimo Dutti Spring collection. I went on a  definitive shop-stop in January to save up for a summer vacation and a new 28mm prime lens to photograph with on said summer vacation. No matter how alluring photographing the South of France …

3 Fun Prints I Want To Wear This Spring

3 Fun Prints I Want To Wear This Spring

When the first rays of Spring sunshine came through the clouds last week, I stood in front of my wardrobe and noticed how plain most of my clothing was. Stripes I have plenty of, but sometimes a girl just feels a need for something new. When my friend Susan came over to my city studio, we decided on an impulsive shopping trip and my oh my, did I have a few “omg I neeeeeed that!” moments. Too bad I’m still on that shopping ban. When the spring-summer packshots from Scotch & Soda came into the mail …
