AD | The Sony Music Gift of Giving

On the first day of Christmas a friend send to me, an album by a singer I love to hear. And on The second day of Christmas I send to a friend, an album by a singer I hope she loves to hear. And on The twentieth day of Christmas there we will form a circle of friends listening to good music, and reading each others blog posts about this special musical project. When I first started blogging, I never thought it would affect my offline life as much as it has. Throughout the years the offline side of it&…

The Next Chapter

I’m listening to Bon Jovi and writing a blog post. Not much seems to have changed, but the truth is that something has. You know it. I know it. I know that you know it. Darling, we need to talk. I am a firm believer of the saying that a blogger and her blog should be like husband and wife. A relationship where one invests time and effort, but above all: a lot of love. Unfortunately, the love is gone. I still do the little blog-chores we all know, but much like in a love affair gone cold …

My Soliloquy: Why My Blog Isn’t The Best It Can Be

My Soliloquy: Why My Blog Isn’t The Best It Can Be

“To be or not to be, that is the question…” – Shakespeare in Hamlet The rain is softly clattering on the glass roofing of our porch. Our Jack Russel is looking at my zooming laptop with confusion from across the room. It’s the first time I ever sit here to write a blog post, but now that I’m here, I think I should do it more often. It has been raining since the beginning of the week, so I’ve locked myself inside and am working away a few projects around the …

The Nikkor 35mm f/1.8 lens

The Nikkor 35mm f/1.8 lens

  Pure bokeh power. And everyone knows that bokeh is a magical word. Photographers love it, bloggers love it and I just can’t get enough of it. For my 22nd birthday, my boyfriend and his parents bought me the Nikkor 35mm F/1.8 lens and a Rocketfish filter to keep the lens clean. I have to be truly honest with you guys: I already received my gift in March, and the photos from above stem from the day that I opened my present. In early Spring, the backyard of my boyfriends parents house turns into a gorgeous place full …

We celebrated in Paris this weekend! Last week, a few good friends and I went to a cocktail bar for a last good night out before our exam stress sets in. You probably known them: that group of young teenage boys occupying more seats than there are group members, while other people in the venue are standing. They were teasing a group of young girls when I tried my own luck getting a chair. Their reaction made me feel a little unsure about myself. One of them immediately jumped up, apologised and handed me an empty chair while saying “…

Pre-Opening of the Julia June Concept Store

Pre-Opening of the Julia June Concept Store

Women who love to dress feminine, colorful and on-trend absolutely need to know about fashion revelation Julia June. The fashion brand, born and raised in Belgium since 2005, is soon opening their concept store in Ghent. They had a festive pre-opening for press and bloggers two weeks ago, where we could discover the fall-winter ’14 collection while enjoying plates full of the most delicious pastries. And those pastries were not a random catering choice. Until the day before the event, the location of the concept store was well-known patisserie Fevery. Hence the beautiful setting of the concept store, which still…
