Saint Martin travel diary, part 1
Travel

Traveling-wise 2015 has been an absolute dream for me: next to a few regularly visited places I traveled to no less than 3 brand new destinations so far. Next to Berlin and Ibiza, which had been on my travel wishlist since forever, I also got introduced to a destination less obvious. The tourism office of Saint…

Flying fashionably

You could follow my plane journey to the beautiful island of Saint Martin pretty intensely via Snapchat, but I totally forgot to show you what I wore! Dressing for traveling is always a challenge: an early morning train ride, a freezing plane, a tropically hot destination… You get confronted with totally different kinds of situations and…

Postcard from Saint-Martin

Bon matin, mes amis! Straight from Saint-Martin and its horrible wifi connection: finally a little postcard! This week is all about discovering the well-known treasures and hidden gems of the Caribbean island, which has quickly won over my heart with its stunning sky-blue sea views, finger licking food and extremely friendly inhabitants. This afternoon I’m…

Sunshine after the rain

Woah, these gloomy pics seem so unreal in comparison with my current views! If you have been following me on Snapchat and Instagram, you must have noticed that I’m in a way sunnier place right now… Still, this outfit seemed like the appropriate thing to post now that October has kicked off. By now you should…

The blooper edition
Personal

The photos you usually see on this blog are carefully selected, edited and curated in a certain way that pleases my personal aesthetic. The photo’s that you don’t see on this blog are usually pretty hilarious. It takes about 80 failed photos to have 6 pretty ones, so why hold back all of the good…

Wellness moments with Relaxy.be

When life gives you bubble baths, you better take advantage of it. And when allround wellness platform Relaxy.be asks you to review a spa, you immediately say YES. After a wonderful morning drive through the idyllic area called Kempen (don’t judge, I was born there), my friend Lisa and I arrived at Instituut Elise in Herentals, close to Antwerp.…

A Sunday off

Sundays are for chilling and since we’re blessed with this wonderful sunny Autumn weather, my boyfriend and I spent our day off soaking up the sun and exploring new corners in town. Last Sunday we headed to the North of Antwerp, which, despite of its modern architecture, feels a lot like Paris during this time of the year.…

Easily translate the boho summer trend to Autumn

Temperatures dropping lower doesn’t equal compromising in style; we all know that. But it also doesn’t mean compromising in trends! Why would you stop wearing a favourite trend of yours just because the timing is not “right”? Today I wanted to show you how I translate the boho trend, which is usually something strongly associated with…

The cape

My office outfits are getting better and better every week, and this one was definitely one of the highlights of the last few days! A cape seems like something difficult to style, but apart from the fact that is it hard to properly move my body in it, it is one of the easier pieces in my…

Why I’m looking forward to Autumn

Although I can really enjoy a good tanning session on the beach, a late night bonfire with friends or dancing around at music festivals, I secretly don’t mind summer coming to an end because… My favourite season is about to start! Why do I love Autumn so much? Time for this Autumn Lovers Anonymous member to…

#TheJourneyJacket

When a few months ago my friend Ruth confided the secret that she would design a jacket for Goosecraft to me, I instantly knew I was going to LOVE it. And then last week, after months and months of discussing, designing and debating, there it was! The result is a slightly longer biker jacket in a super…

Zara shopping haul!

Upon receiving my very first paycheck as a working woman (don’t mind that I have worked as a model for years, this somehow feels very different) I decided that I needed to spend it on something really nice. I headed to the Acne store in Berlin last week to try on some cardigans and knits,…

Stripes, braids & something pretty practical

On the first day of Lollapalooza festival I noticed a few girls sporting two braids in their hair, which looked both really epic and convenient to me. Wearing my hair down really is a huge task for me, since I’m constantly aware of those annoying loose locks in my neck and on my clothes. The next…

LOLLAPALOOZA FESTIVAL WITH ZALANDO

A 300 second Snapchat story? I wouldn’t want to waste so many seconds of your life unless I have something REAL cool to share. No disappointments there: last weekend Zalando invited me to the very FIRST European Lollapalooza festival in its hometown Berlin! If talking festival stereotypes, I’m that friend who always listens to the festival’s Spotify playlists…

My 5-step unwind manual for busy bees
Beauty

Starting a new job the day after I finished my last exam wasn’t exactly what I had in mind for this final summer as a student. One second I’m losing sleep over finishing that last difficult chapter about postmodernism, and the next I’m worrying about paying taxes and rent! My two days a week that are reserved…

3x office wear winners

Working at an office has drastically influenced my morning dressing routine. When crawling out of bed, I usually only want to put on comfy things. Distressed boyfriend jeans? Nope, no longer possible. A short leather skirt on the other hand? Maybe not. Crop top? Yeah um, no. Although the (fashion) environment at work definitely encourages outfit…

COCKTAILS & CULOTTES

Making delicious cocktails with some close friends on your birthday; there are only a handful things in the world that make me happier! To celebrate my 24th birthday my girlfriends and I were invited by Miraeus, an Antwerp-based cocktail loving company specialized in workshops, tastings and catering. We gathered at the stunning Lindner hotel in Antwerp, where…

Very last bits of my Ibiza Summer
Travel

After observing people rushing through the streets with umbrellas, biker boots and rain coats from my window earlier today, I unfortunately had to admit to myself that Summer is now officially over. We usually still have an indian summer later on in September, but it’s not quite the same to face bare legs after you’ve put…

Ibiza beach tip: Cala D’en Serra
Travel

When doing my last-minute research for Ibiza in the two days before leaving, I ended up at Yayzine, where my friend Nathalie generously shared her rural Ibiza guide. Right up my alley! One of her tips was Cala D’en Serra, a pretty tiny but exotic bay located at the North of Ibiza that is on The Guardian’s…

Las Salinas, Ibiza

Our trip to Ibiza only lasted for a few short days, but we made the most out of them by visiting about 3 or 4 beaches with our little scooter. Our first stop was Las Salinas, an area in the south of Ibiza with large fields of salt. The beaches are quite pretty but very busy,…

Ibiza Old Town

Hola amigos! Back in July I found out that I would start my new job in a few weeks already, and I realized that I hadn’t planned any holidays yet! The boyfriend and I were discussing this topic over breakfast in one of our favourite coffee bars, when he suddenly came up with the crazy idea to…

My first day at work

Last week was wonderful in so many ways: I ended my final exams, celebrated my birthday (thanks for the wishes!) and started my first days at my new job. A new career also means new style choices, and I’m super excited to be sharing my working gear with you in the future! As a social…

It’s my birthday!

Oh wowzers, I’m turning 24 today! Yesterday was quite the party, so today I’m taking things VERY slow. Brunching with the girlfriends, editing some photos and dinner with the boyfriend. Sounds like the perfect birthday, right?

Friday Favourite: weird white shirt

There’s nothing like a good white crisp shirt, right? They are however hard to find! I have collected a few precious shirts throughout the years, but it seems like there’s always a better one, a whiter one, a crispier one to discover. Today’s shirt-wishlist material consists of this pretty weird white wrap shirt with awkward-length sleeves.…
