OK, so I promised you a post about Antwerp museums, but that will have to wait for another week I suppose… because today I want to tell you about an outing I had last Saturday! I went to Utrecht for an entire day of lectures about Jane Austen…

The week ahead

week ahead 17

Sorry guys I had to keep you waiting for this ‘week ahead’ post… but all those parties I’ve been having lately makes one a very tired girl 🙂 and also a very unprepared girl!!

I am still working on Saturday’s fashionpost, so that is still a bit of a mystery to you… as to me 😀 but the rest of the posts are lined up…

Tomorrow a beautypost in which I will tell you step by step how I made my make-up for my sister’s wedding last week. Tuesday I will give you tips on how to take in less calories whilst eating out and Thursday there’s a travelpost about museums in Antwerp (the first of three).

And the fashionpost on Saturday… oh well… we’ll see 😀

Enjoy your Sunday and let it be a FUNday!!

Love, Kathleen
