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…

Dressing up like a 6 year old

When I was just a mini-P, I absolutely adored Barbie. I wanted her to have her fabulous long hair, her cool gadgets and especially her impressive outfits! Most dresses were sugar coated pink, super puffy and very glittery, which had absolutely nothing to do with what I used to wear as a kiddo climbing trees with my…

WEARING THE SQUARE

Meet my favourite dress of the moment! I call it The Square. When browsing through clothing racks at a store lately I’m really drawn to huge, shapeless pieces of fabric that appear to be dresses. The bigger, the better! The award of favourite piece of fabric now goes to this super affordable H&M Trend dress. I’ve…

OH HEY, I’M BACK

Nope, I didn’t die in the heatwave last week! My reasons for being MIA are far more obvious: I needed a break. After two extremely intense months of working on my thesis (I passed with a glorious result!) and studying for my final exams, topped off with an exhausting weekend at Rock Werchter, I gave…

A mini insider’s guide to Antwerp

Holla! Since many of you regularly contact me asking for secret hotspots in Antwerp, I’m taking you on a mini trip through my city today!

Knots, dots and hotspots

Playing a tourist in your own city is the perfect way to spend a bank holiday, don’t you think? Lisa and I were wandering through the sunny streets of Antwerp and bumped into the Vlaeykensgang, the oldest medieval street of the entire city! Since we were captivated by the old, super cozy, almost South-French vibe (and…

The view from the afternoon

Woah, although I was super thrilled to show you these pictures when we had just shot them, I somehow completely forgot to post them! Marijs and I were about to stop by a press event when we passed by this beautiful green corner with beautiful light embracing the trees. This is definitely a spot where I should…

There is a first time for everything and since I have been a regular gym-visitor for months now, I thought it was time to finally shoot some sportswear!
