Did I mention before how much I love travelling to France? Admittedly, it’s far from an exotic destination for us Belgies, but having this broad variety of holiday scenes and delights just a road trip away is part of its charm, if you ask me. (Someone once told me that the tendency to drive over 10 hours to a holiday destination, rather than just hopping on a plain is SO Belgian. Wondering if that is in fact the case…). We… Read more »

I’ve packed my share of bags over the years. Boarding school, student life and the weekly move between parents have required me to master the art of efficient packing. It’s a skill I’m kinda proud of, to be honest :). I can take pleasure in going through the routine of mental checklists and swift selection. But of course, nothing like filling your suitcase for a holiday! Especially a summer holiday :). Imagining yourself strolling beneath a sunny southern sky wearing… Read more »

Those final rays of light before the end of the day. Warmer colors, softer contrasts, a fairy like atmosphere. Perfect for dreamy pictures and even dreamier thoughts. It’s probably my favorite time of day. Especially in summer. Coming home and having a glass of wine on my terrace. Clearing my head after a day of brain exercise. (Yes, I like to tell myself I do at least one kind of exercise…) But I’m drifting off. (Which is an obvious side-effect… Read more »

Another week gone by. Some pretty busy days behind and ahead of me! We’re putting in the final prep work for a BEAUTYful event next week (for those of you who know what I’m talking about, this might look familiar :) ), which is always stressy but exciting. You know, that typical love-hate relationship one can have with an awesome yet time devouring job :). In the meantime I handed in the final assignment for my photography-for-noobs course. And in… Read more »

As you might have suspected while reading this little spot I call a blog: I’m somewhat of a fashion victim :). And as those among you suffering from the same condition can probably confirm: one of its most annoying symptoms is its need for space. Lots of it. Obviously, if you’re not blessed with a Carrie-sized closet (which I can sadly confirm I am not), this can cause quite a problem. Through years of shopping and inheriting pretty pieces from… Read more »

  Zara scarf – 2nd hand jumper (bought at Clean Closet!) – Topshop skirt ) – Zign shoes – Pilgrim necklace – H&M bracelet Gotta love Belgian Spring. Pretty yellow narcissi, singing birds, … and lots of rain! The last few weeks, we’ve been seeing some exceptionally cold & grey days, even for our little country. So even though my wardrobe was screaming: “DRESSES, SKIRTS, PASTELS, PLEAEASE!” I had to cave and get some of my winter sweaters back from… Read more »

My god, was this free Monday a dreary one, or what?  Sweet spring, where have you gone? Luckily I didn’t need to go far to find shelter from all this greyness, as the second edition of the colorful Ghentmade craft market took place right around my corner! At Café La Lys (Meibloemstraat, Ghent), this neat little fair presented a sea of hand crafted jewelry, clothes, home decorations, …  Nothing like a gathering of creative minds to brighten a dull day :)  And boy… Read more »

Friday again! Can’t believe how this week has flown by… Lots of work and an awesome midweek interlude going to the Beyoncé concert with my lovely PN colleagues (She BLEW me away. There are just no words for it. Except maybe for this one:  MAJOR girl crush!).  With all this going on, I hadn’t even shared any of my Paris pics with you yet!  Our two day getaway to the city of light was simply delightful. :) It’s always hard to summarize… Read more »

As some of you might know, I hold a special place in my heart for my hometown Ghent. The perfect mix of hipness & history, there’s no place in our rainy little country I’d rather live. Today I’m sharing a very specific part of this precious city that I thought you might appreciate: some of my favorite vintage hotspots! Who knows, you might get some inspiration for a shopping trip over the upcoming long weekend :) Myriam Wulffaert Vintage (St.-Jacobsnieuwstraat… Read more »
