MoMu Antwerp: Birds of Paradise

MoMu Antwerp: Birds of Paradise

The past two weeks have been very, very hectic for me. I feel like I’ve been running around like a headless chicken and I really had to catch my breath. What better way to relax, than by writing a new blog post, drinking a smoothie and looking back on my photos of the amazing Birds of Paradise collection, currently on display in the Antwerp Fashion Museum? There is no better way I’d say! On this particular warm evening in March, I met my beloved blogging friend Sven for food and drinks before the event. I …

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. But the next morning, there was not a single clue that it had snowed and through December, January and February no more snow came. Today is the first day of Spring, and I decided …

10 Questions & Answers (Liebster Award)

10 Questions & Answers (Liebster Award)

I’ve met a fair share of fellow ginger-haired bloggers since my first days on the blogging block. But other Nikkis? Not so much! When Nikki from Dream In Neon happened upon my space here on the web, she promptly nominated me for the Liebster award, because us Nikkis have to stick together. She asked me 10 questions, that I very willingly will answer below.  Which blogger do you admire the most? It’s always hard to pick just one, but I’ve loved Chronicles Of A Country Girl since …

Six years of blogging, three years The Ginger Diaries

Six years of blogging, three years The Ginger Diaries

The first outfit photo back in 2011, and the last one in 2014. Both are, coincidentally, taken at the Warandeberg in Brussels. The 2014 photos are to appear on the blog next week! 🙂 Six years ago the  online platform I used for blogging decided to stop before the new year, and that decision forced me to move my space on the web to Blogger. You might remember how you first felt after leaving MySpace and moving to Facebook? Or after every update Facebook has done since (hello Timeline!)? That feeling is exactly the feeling I had about Blogger. It was…

Happy 2014!

Happy 2014!

This morning I was awoken by the happy voices of young carolers going door to door collecting candy and change. An immediate reminder that 2013 is ending, and 2014 is slowly taking over the time zones. The Australian fireworks on TV brought me in the mood for tonights celebrations.  We picked up our dinner at the local caterer, the boyfriends wine is in the cooler and my outfit is is, well… in the making. I hope all of you are going to have a blast tonight and enjoy watching the fireworks as much as I will.  Happy New Year!

Merry Christmas To You!

Merry Christmas To You!

Hi guys! I’m just popping it real quick to wish you all a merry Christmas.  It’s my mom’s birthday today and so we’re celebrating at our home. I should be preparing for finals, but instead I’m running around and annoying my younger brother with my camera. Mom also put me in charge of the dishes. You might remember the post I wrote two weeks ago about how much I hate doing the dishes. But I’ll let you in on a little secret: on Christmas eve it’…
