Yay! It’s time again for a Spring cleanout! I gathered plenty of pieces to sell, and will do so TOMORROW evening during the WNDR WOMAN afterwork event by Marie Claire in Antwerp.

It’s a hard pug life

As an absolute cat lover, I was a bit sceptic when I found out my brother and his girlfriend got a dog. When I was a kid, a raging, rabid dog in our garden gave me scares for lyfe. Dogs haven’t been my best friends since that day. Although I sort of got over it a few…

A peek into our apartment / now
Home, Personal

Now that you’ve seen our apartment when it was still empty and pure, I of course had to show you how it looks right now, STUFFED with vintage furniture, Furby’s and succulents. My friend Patricia from deco and design blog No Glitter No Glory dropped by as the very first person to photograph our space and I’m thrilled…

A peek into our apartment / before
Home, Personal

You’ve seen bits of my Antwerp apartment on Instagram (#maisonpielaun) and on the blog before, but I’ve never done an actual home tour! The reason being that we were still busy decorating and updating the whole place. Projects like a home never seem to really finish, as it’s an ongoing thing that changes seasonally or even…

Looking back to 2016
Personal

Okay, get ready for a pretty personal post. This period of the year usually stands for reflection, but 2016 definitely deserves some extra attention in my case. 2016 was a difficult year for the world, and for me personally it’s been one of the craziest years of my life. It’s been a rollercoaster of heavy emotions, unexpected…

Epic night out with the ladies

Last weekend was a pretty good one! Robin, Justine and I had a wonderful time going out at one of Antwerp’ finest clubs — including a massive hangover the day after. But hours before that unforgettable epic night out, the ladies and I got together for some gooooood old party prep. Remember when we were in high school and…

Autumn walk

Nope, no Pinterest-worthy Autumn weather happening here, BUT I’m not letting some raindrops ruin one of my favourite seasons. So because I had been looking forward to those cozy Autumn walks for so long, I decided to ignore the weather gods and head to the forest last weekend. The boyfriend and I drove over to his hometown to witness some pretty glorious…

Personal

There we go, another photo diary! This time no special trip or getaway, but just a lovely Sunday well spent. Read along! 10h16 I am SO not a morning person, so setting my alarm clock at 10 in the morning on a Sunday is not something I would easily do. But I had fun plans…

Another episode of Polienne around the clock that takes you to Amsterdam! This time only for a super quick breakfast meeting, which I will tell you all about later in my report.

5.01 o’ clock in Berlin

If there’s one thing that connects my girl squad, it’s probably music and laughter. We’d rather invest our money in concerts and festivals than spending it on 7 new trending outfits every month. And that’s another thing we definitely have in common: we stick to the basics. Last month we traveled to Berlin to attend a concert…

When I heard that blog platform Creators Of Desire, which hosted my blog for the past year, would be shutting down later on this month, I felt a slight excitement by the idea of…

A letter about new beginnings soon!
Personal

Dear friends, readers and random visitors, As Anouk announced a little while ago, she is ending the wonderful chapter called Creators Of Desire later on this month. Truth is that the blog industry is changing rapidly, with quick visual content often being more important than more elaborate, well-written blogposts. Instead of spending all her energy on trying to be…

The last few weeks have been pretty busy and that’s because next to my 3 day job (social media manager and copywriter) and my 4 day job (blogger), I’ve also been catching up on modeling again. After 6 years of modeling I kind of let it rest a bit to focus on my other ambitions,…

Not only am I visually a 3 cm shorter copy of her, I’m also starting to take over my mum’s little habits and customs. The thing is that my mum always set a great example for me and taught me lots of important values in life. In the light of Rituals’ #givefromtheheart campaign I’d like to thank…
