SOME LOST PARIS PICTURES

_MG_8519-2

These lost photos from Paris suddenly turned up on my computer, and now that I am in France (SKI HOLIDAYS WOO) it seemed appropriate to drop them on the blog today. Let me tell you why I hadn't posted them before! Sometimes photos just don't turn out as you would have wanted: we only had about 5 minutes to shoot them, and in the end I wasn't sure about my looks + the evening light was a total mess. Back in September my Lightroom skills weren't as developed as now, so I never managed to fix them until recently!

Plus, now that I have just unleashed a super long ramble about insecurities and how to get over them, I thought I'd make a fool out of myself for not posting them. SO, because I do really love the outfit and because I have now finally found a way to fix that damn overexposed sky I present to you... my outfit from September 30! Liking it?

POSTCARD FROM BELLE-PLAGNE



Bonjour bonjour, comment ça va? Yesterday evening my family and I arrived at Belle-Plagne, France, for an intensive week of skiing, eating and relaxing. Although it's pretty cloudy today and we're expecting some heavy snowfall later on, we're all very much looking forward to hit the slopes and fill our lungs with fresh mountain air.

About the blog: I unfortunately had no time to schedule any new posts except for tomorrow morning, but I will try to keep you updated as long as the wifi co-operates with me. In the mean time you can follow me on Instagram (@pielaun) or Snapchat (@pielaunio) for more regular updates. Off to breakfast now!

ONLINE BA&SH ALERT!


Yeehaa! I've got some good news for all of us, my friends. Last week I went to Maasmechelen Village for the Denim Festival with Belmodo and of course we did some good shopping. My readers and I attacked the Ba&sh outlet store, where I caved for a beautiful, chic and sexy jumpsuit. I have never owned a decent jumpsuit before and I felt that the time was finally right to invest in this classic piece. After trying on different sizes I eventually went home with a size 3, creating a very casual, loose effect. Love at first sight, guys! <3

After visiting the Ba&sh outlet I really wanted to check out the new collection as well! The good thing here is that we do not even have to get out of our couch to actually see all of the goodness! That is riiiiiight: the Ba&sh website/webshop has just opened its cyber doors! The E-shop is ready to serve us in French, English and Dutch and offers a special personal shopper tool! More advantages of the new website are that we receive early sale notices, can check the availability of the pieces in shops (nice if you want to try something on after all), get free shipping to a store and can settle returns and exchanges in relay points or by appointment. Sounds good right?

To close off this post, I have selected three beautiful alternatives to my own jumpsuit, which is unfortunately from last season. How tempting is that drop-dead gorgeous longsleeve one with v-neck and open back? Agree? Have you shopped at Ba&sh before, by the way? If you're loving the brand too, stay tuned for a cool collaboration in a few weeks in which I'll share my favourite pieces and more! See you guys laterrrrr!

NOT A MORNING PERSON

_MG_7817

This greasy-haired, tired-faced and utterly busy Sméagol barely survived the weekend, as the time unfortunately has come to, on top of every other day of the week, sacrifice my Saturdays as well to work for university. Oh, hello bachelor paper! I'm still doing all of my research but some of my classmates have already started writing, which scares the fuck out of me. Let's say I'm keeping up on my own pace and will hopefully have some magic moments of inspiration when I start putting things down in words. How wonderful life iiiiissss.... Sorry for that Elton John-thingie there.

Pop it, pop it real good! I have been doubting about purchasing a pair of Adidas Superstar sneakers for some time now and the decision just got A LOT more difficult. Why? My favourite urban hiphop dude Pharrell Williams is about to launch an incredible new Superstar collection with my favourite urban shoe brand! The reissued version of this iconic sneaker is available in a dazzling 50 (!) different colours, which you can all see below.
