• 2018 Travel Year In Review

    I’ve always had a travel bucket list, but 2018 was the first year I shared it on the blog! You can read it here. I thought it’d be fun to review last year’s travel bucket list before I share what destinations made it on my list for 2019. Let’s see how I did, shall we? Berlin Berlin was a city that never appealed to me, but since so many of my friends raved about it I decided to put it on top of my list for 2018. It didn’t take long for me to set foot on German grounds. My…

    AD | Dress Code Loungewear

    Confession: It takes exactly 0.5 seconds for me to change into my comfiest loungewear after I get home from work. I can do it even faster if I skip the “Honey, I’m Home!”. It’s reality that my boyfriend rarely sees me in anything other than my casual wear on weekdays. I’m lucky that he values the cuddle-factor of my outfits more than their general appeal, haha. We’ve both been big fans of my newest set, that was kindly given to me by Hunkemoller just before Christmas. There’s nothing better than coming home from work on a cold and snowy winters…

    A Pop of Green

    When I was still in school H&M was my go-to for knitwear. They did and still do the best sweaters, jumpers and cardigans in the €20-40 price category. The secret with H&M is to hit the shop early. Their earliest fall pieces are their absolute best and by shopping my sweaters while it wasn’t exactly sweater weather just yet, I always managed to find the ones I wanted still available in my my size. Every summer I’d set aside some money so I’d be ready when they dropped their fall collection. And I was never disappointed. It’s been three years…

    Wide Leg Cropped Pants

    Guys, these must be my favorite blog photos everrrrr. And that says something, considering that I’ve been doing this since 2009 (how has it been 9 years!?). My friend Melissa has recently started doing hair & make-up. As she’s new on the mua scene she’s working a lot to create her portfolio and asked me to model for her!  Now, you all know that I don’t wear make-up and the fanciest thing I’ve ever done with my hair on the blog was this. If that doesn’t prove enough that God wasn’t handing out the ability to be a hair magician on…

    Apple Picking in Haspengouw

    According to Statbel, the Belgian statistical office, there are currently 11.376.070 people living on the 30.528 KM² piece of land known as Belgium. Said little piece of land is divided into 10 provinces. And today I am taking you on a day trip to my favorite one: Limburg! Or as we Antwerpians like to call it “The Limburg”. I am imagining the Limburgers reading this collectively clicking away from my blog now. More specifically I’m taking you along on a field trip to the beautiful region of Haspengouw. Haspengouw is best known for its fruit farms, country roads and castles. While…

    Pop It, Lock It, …

    … polka dot it! Ah, Miley Cyrus songs are my favorites to reference to in blog post. Hers and Justin Biebers. If you doubt my level of adulthood now, you’re right to do so. On to what I really want to write today! There was no trend I loved as much as the polka dot trend this past summer. I’m always a bit hesitant to jump on a new trend and usually like to dip my toes in first. But this time things were different. If a piece of clothing had dots, I wanted it.  It started with polka dot…
