Hi guys, it’s been a while now since I’ve written something here but these past few months have been crazy! A lot has changed – moved to a different appartment, switched jobs, a lot of travel,…won Hunkemöller blogger awards in category Sport!! Still so proud of that title and so grate-full that I’m a part of the family now! One of the rewards was to visit München and meet the amazing and inspiring Doutzen Kroes during the press launch of her new collection.
First we had a beautiful and healthy lunch with a lot of Hunkemöller ambassadors from all over the world. Meeting young, creative and ambitious people is one of the perks of being a blogger. It’s so nice meeting the people you’ve looked up to for a while and really getting to know them.
After lunch we got a chance to do a fun but hard ballet-workout. Unfortunately for me the event was too soon after my surgery and I wasn’t fully recovered so I couldn’t participate yet. Next time I’ll be there right next to Doutzen for sure! She’s even more stunning in real life, it’s crazy!
After our meet-and-greet I wanted to treat myself and went shopping in the Hunkemöller store in Kaufingerstrasse. I think I tried on everything and I also went home with almost the entire collection. I think some new sports-gear can really be an extra motivation to get your ass back in the gym! It definitely worked for me. After surgery I wasn’t able to workout for a couple of months but now I’m getting better and I’m able to do some boxing again. Finally!!
It was a short visit but I’m definitely going back to München someday! Thanks to Hunkemöller for making this trip happen!
What does your desert dream look like? Wecandance took on a whole other level this year and fulfilled my desert dreams with the perfect combination of music, food, fashion and art. The place looked more magical than ever and had this entire Arabian vibe over it. Everywhere you looked there were cosy corners, goregous colorful carpets and fabrics moving around in the wind, the perfect set-up for a photo shoot. There were also women painting henna, braid your hair and put on all kinds of beautiful make-up. I had the opportunity to work with Zalando and found this gorgeous Mango dress for my first look. I wore it with a Marco Polo Bandana finished with a gold jewelry detail on top.
My second look was less Princess and more Aladdin. I was wearing the classy Kiomi Pants with a sexy Miss Selfridge embroidered body and Topshop Earrings. I had an amazing night and can’t wait what they’ll do next year!
I was so thrilled when Alpro invited me for one of the best festival in the World – Tomorrowland! I’m always trying to eat healthy and Alpro is my perfect partner in crime for that breakfast-wise! The Coconut milk is my absolute favorite. I had loads of their coconut cappuccino at their breakfast bar in Dreamville. So first things first, after arriving at Dreamville and dropping off our stuff we went straight to the Alpro breakfast bar where they served the most delicious pancakes and soy bowls ever! I had the one with chocolate and strawberries and it was to die for. To be honest, when I got home on monday, post-TML – I was missing my Alpro breakfast, I’m definitely hooked for their soy bowls!
Put everything in place for the perfect Alpro Breakfast picture…
After breakfast we had an appointment with M.A.C for our make-up. I chose the gold look and asked if they wanted to add some blue mascara. I’m not a fan of blue eyeshadow but the blue mascara is a great finishing touch if you ask me!
Ready for day 2! Elke and I started by running in between the rain drops on our way to another perfect Alpro breakfast. We were so hungry and determined for those pancakes and we made it!
Hi guys, it’s been a while! I’m back though writing about fashion and what I know/love most! This look is the perfect example of what I’d love the wear everyday, comfy but eye catching. It’s also the perfect get-away look after a night of partying (and maybe not getting home). Four things you should always have with you when you go out and you don’t know how crazy the night will turn out to be.
- Sunglasses. Even if the sun isn’t shining, you’d still want to cover up that mascara gone wrong…
- Some kind of hair peace to cover up that bad hairday. This Scarf will distract them from noticing your almost-dreadlocks.
- A big smile (and maybe some mints). If you wear your biggest smile no-one will notice.
- His white shirt if he has one… Otherwise run!

This year Delvaux taps into the sporty look of prep school chic by launching the limited edition bag called The Hero
. Still keeping track of innovation and heritage, the brand renewed the iconic Brillant design into a dark green vinyl bag with their unique Emblem : 1829
stamped on the front. Once again Delvaux succeeds in meeting technical challenges with the spirit of innovation. La maison’s research and development teams used intricate techniques and the latest tools of the trade to craft this ingenious new design. Ever since I knew what ‘designer bag’ meant, I’ve looked up the certain brands and Delvaux was definitely one of them so you can imagine my euphoria when I got the call! Delvaux, it was a true honor and I’m so looking forward to my trip to the atelier next month. Being able to see how these classics are made from scratch is one step closer to real fashion!

What to wear when you go to a Museum? I always imagine a fancy outfit because I compare it with going to the Opera, not that I’ve ever been… The timing of this blogpost is perfect because the holidays are just around the corner so that makes this jacket the perfect eye catching Item in my closet. The main piece of this outfit is the blingbling jacket from the Gigi Holiday Collection by Tommy Hilfiger! You can also dress it down with like a light jeans but I thought this was the perfect occasion to take it up a notch and wear my over the knee boots and little black dress. How would you wear this jacket? y
Last saturday M.A.C Cosmetics took it to the next level with their new Holiday collection in theme of the Nutcracker. It was a full house in the M.A.C Cosmetics store in Brussels and I could really feel the Christmas vibe. The sight of these beautiful packaged products and bright colors were amazing. What makes this collection so special is that there are different kits available like for example the eye shadow palette I chose, a handy brush kit or the perfect shades of festive lipsticks. The ideal Christmas gift if you ask me! I had an amazing time with the wonderful Emma Gelaude meeting new people and getting our faces dolled up with the new collection! What’s your favourite product? Check out the candy coated gift guide here.
These are my favorite items : The nutcracker Eye shadow palette called ‘sweet smokey eye compac‘ in bronze colors because I think it matches best with my skin tone and it’s ideal for my everyday make-up look. Next in line is the highlighter because I love to highlight all the good things in life, including my cheekbones.
So as I already mentioned in previous posts, I finally graduated. I have my master in Product development so I’m ready for the next step. To start this new chapter in my life I have to make some hard decisions and that scares me a little. I’m not sure what I have to do because I have more than one dream. Fashion is one of them, that’s no surprise. I feel like I want to travel the world, I haven’t seen much and there’s no better time than the present to go discover it all. I also have to think about my future and my ambitions to build a good career. That’s what I’m still figuring out these days, how to combine all the things that I love. I’m also going to expand my subjects I write&blog about. Next to fashion I’m also adding beauty and travel!

A full white look with some heavy black boots underneath. When you say it like that it sounds so wrong but I think you determine your own rules and a white look in the autumn/winter is perfectly possible. In fact I’m still buying (off-) white clothes but in different fabrics than during the summer, we don’t want to freeze to death right. These DMsLITE boots by Dr. Martens are super light and easy to wear. A shoe is the first thing I decide on when picking my outfit and these are always on top of my list. What do you think of the combination between a light white outfit and these heavy boots?
