Summer cravings

Here I am again with some seasonal cravings. This time I’m not just focusing on fashion related items, but I’m also sharing some beauty things. 😀 First up, some striped or gingham trousers. I’ve been loving my black trousers so much at the moment that I want another pair, but a pair that looks a bit different. I’m not really someone who keeps up with all the trends, but I do like a bit of gingham – or just stripes, going for stripes is always a good idea. Next up, some sun protection for my face. I wanted to go for 50 spf, but since I my skintype doesn’t burn very easily I opted for the 30 spf. I’ve already tested the sun protection from Louis Widmer and I will definitely go for this one. More about this one later 😉 Beside protection my face from the sun I am also changing my beauty routine. My daycream has became quite heavy with the warm weather lately so I wanted something light and the Moisture Surge …

Castle Hex & their roses

A few weeks ago my mom, our neighbour and I made a little trip to the countryside. We visited Castle Hex which held a annual rose exposition. You could gaze at the amazing roses of the castle’s garden or buy some roses for yourself. Unfortunatly the weather has been to good lately, even though it had been raining all morning, so the roses in the garden didn’t all look so well, but those you could buy were perfection. Apart from the roses you could also buy some other flowers, herbs, honey, jam and loads of other things. This garden day was very international since there weren’t only exhibitors from every corner of Belgium, but also some people from France, Germany and even from England. Of course I had to bring my camera along to capture all this beauty. It was all looking very English to me. Just an English day in Belgium. Enkele weken maakten gingen mijn mama, onze buurvrouw en ik een kleine trip naar het platteland. We bezochten er Kasteel Hex, wat bijna letterlijk in the …

Casual attire

A few weeks ago I pulled some random items out of my closet and created one of my new favorite spring looks. One going to work, I like to dress super comfy – the main reason I rarely wear heels to work. I bought the pastel pink sneakers one of the last days of summer, so I can finally wear them again. This look is a bit grey-ish so they are definitely welcome for the extra colour. The cardigan from Ichi was one of those random finds. I was just look around at a store my mom loves – not me though – and stumbled upon this. I’m glad I did because it’s so easy to wear and – surprise surprise – super comfy. 😉 What do you think of this look? Enkele weken geleden haalde ik enkele willekeurige items uit mijn kast en vond op die manier één van mijn favorite lente outfits. Wanneer ik ga werken, draag ik het liefst zo comfortabel mogelijke kledij – dé reden waarom je me zelden met hakken zal zien, want …

5 apps I can’t live without

I know the title is a bit dramatic, but either I use these apps almost everyday or they simple make my life a bit easier. But this post isn’t just about the apps in the inside of my phone, but also a bit about the case on the outside! I got this case from Paradise Amsterdam. They make the most gorgeous cases for your phone: palm leafs, marble, abstract.. I already have my eye on two other cases 😀 Did I mention they feel extremely soft and luxurious? Check there website here. 1. Spendee. An app to keep a close eye on your financials. You can make different categories, a pie chart shows to percentage of all your expenses, you can make a budget and so much more. I tried different kinds of apps like this one, but haven’t found one I love more. The only thing I hate about it? If you want more wallets – which can be very usefull if you use various accounts – you’ll need to get a subscription. What happened with the one …

The ultimate black blazer

The black blazer is a crucial piece in your wardrobe. You can style it any way you want and it’s appropriate for any occasion. I do know however how though it can be to find the exact right one. It took me over two years – I kid you not – to find the ultimate blazer. There was always something wrong with it, but this one from Zara seems to be just what I was looking for. The combination of a blue jeans with anything black always never appealed to me. I always thought it looked so weird, even though I saw some many amazing examples. Thankfully I was in a big whatever-mood and that’s how I put together this outfit. I do love this outfit, even though I might not wear it that often. Easy guess that I would often wear this blazer with black trousers – I mean.. I love wearing black! 😀 I’ll definitely show you that look later, but first tell me what you think of this look. Do you like it …
