• A Little Black Dress For Spring

    I don’t buy items on a whim very often. Usually when I see something I like, I will check back on it a few times before I actually make a purchase. My modus operandi doens’t always prevent bad buys, but it has kept me from buying things that I often really seem to want at first, but would probably forget about within a week. This dress, however, was purchased within 60 seconds. And I would have been even faster if I hadn’t secured my online banking app so well, haha. It truly was love at first sight! The 3/4 length…

    London Photo Diaries

    Now that the Royal Wedding is still hot and happening, I thought it was a good time to finally share my photos from London! You might spot the pretty fall foliage, which gives away that I visited London some months ago now. It was a glorious weekend in October, so we enjoyed nice long walks through South Kensington and the Kensington Gardens. We discovered some lovely breakfast and lunch spots and tried some of the best coffee bars around the Aldgate area. I spend about half a day in Victoria’s Secret trying to discourage my friend from spending a monthly…

    A Daytrip to Sopot

    However beautiful the city of Gdańsk may be, after three days we had seen most of it and decided to escape the big city and head for the coast. The maritime resort of Sopot is a popular day trip from Gdańsk because it is close by and easy to reach by train. Sopot lies by the Baltic sea and is well known for its many luxurious hotels, spas and restaurants as well as the long wooden pier that stretches far into the salty water. This seaside town is refined, with many beautiful old buildings that date back more than one…

    Pretty Periwinkle

    If you look closely at the photos you will see that the trees behind me are still bare. We made these photos on one of the very first warmer days of this year. I believe it was the first time I left the house without my winter coat in ages and it felt SO good. I wore my new sweater and white sneakers to celebrate the coming of the new season. You might remember the sweater from the Spring shopping wish list that I shared on my blog a few months ago. It was love at first sight with this…

    A Visit to The Zwin, Belgium

    On a cold morning in February, my boyfriend an I decided to drive to the Belgian sea side for a day. We never go to the sea side. There’s nothing to do when it rains and it’s bustling with tourists as soon as the sun decides to peek from behind the clouds. Add to that the infamous Belgian traffic and you get a recipe for “nah, let’s just go somewhere else”. However, there’s a nature reserve near Knokke that I had been wanting to visit for many years. Following the Cabin Trail The Zwin was spans 150 hectares and has…

    The Prettiest Mules Under €50

    Strange things have happened this weekend. I, master skeptic of all nineties trends, have bought a pair of culottes. Before you all go and think I bought a cutesy pastel colored pair with floral print: hold your horses. I have my limits. Like one would expect of a basic chick like myself, I chose basic black culottes avec front pleat (from H&M, only €45!). After shopping a bright pink blazer, candy pink sweater and even pastel things last month I thought it was about time I pulled myself back together and bought more closet workhorses to help combine my new spring-summer…
