Postcards From Rotterdam

Postcards From Rotterdam

Man, I think I fell in love again. Rotterdam, or as I like to call it “New York by De Nieuwe Maas”, had been on top of my travel list for a long time. I don’t know why I’ve never went there before, because the city has SO much to offer and is super easy to reach. Being only 70 kilometers from my home town, we can drive to Rotterdam in less than an hour! That’s closer than Brussels, not that I’ve been in Brussels that much… . Our original …

Little White Lace Dress

Little White Lace Dress

As much as I love a good (little) black dress or LBD, in summer it’s all about little white dresses. I have a love/hate relationship with them. I love the way my hair looks against white, but I hate how it accentuates the blue and purple tones in my fair skin. My brother always makes fun of me when I’m wearing a white dress and even my mom makes one or two jokes about ghosts when she sees me coming. This white lace number was my birthday gift from my parents a few years ago …

Teva Original Universal Sandals Review

Teva Original Universal Sandals Review

Longtime readers of The Ginger Diaries will know that I have a thing for Teva. As well-known as they are for their comfort, as infamous they are for their looks. For many Teva Original Universal sandals are a horrid childhood fashion disaster they were forced to live through by their parents. And they still seem to blame them. When Teva launched their Original Summer campaign in honor of the Original sandal last year I was utterly excited to be a part of the Belgian league of Teva musketeers. I wore my grey pair with pride, no matter the commentary. During&…

How Pokémon Go Is Saving My Blog

How Pokémon Go Is Saving My Blog

Since the launch of Pokémon Go it has been easier than ever to convince my boyfriend to visit different locations and do shoots for the blog. They should have released the app five years ago! These photos were taken near the canal that runs through our town and that apparently houses water Pokémons and Weedles. The water tower a bit further down the road has turned into a Gym and someone placed a “Lure” on the local church so now K’s out of the house catch extra Pokémons while I …

My Furla Julia Mini Bag

My Furla Julia Mini Bag

I am the kind of girl that lusts after pretty things for a long time before I decide to make a purchase. Want proof? I had been looking at Kate Spade and Michael Kors handbags for several years before I chose to treat myself to the Kate Spade “Little Minka” and Michael Kors “Sutton” bags. Do not let the name “Little Minka” fool you. My Kate Spade bag is humongous! Because I was studying at uni at the time, I wanted my handbags to be big enough to fit my entire class survival kit. …

The Ginger Diaries 2.0

The Ginger Diaries 2.0

After 7 years of blogging it was about time I gave The Ginger Diaries the web space it deserves. Ever since I was little – we’re talking elementary school age – I wanted to have my own independent website. Today I present you The Ginger Diaries 2.0. Guys, I am the happiest redhead in all of the blogosphere. Satuday was the big day! After about thirteen years of dreaming, I hauled my custom domain and all 564 posts over to a self-hosted WordPress. All in all the transfer went pretty smooth. There was a minor hick-up when the official Blogger …
