A beautiful Sunday afternoon in Antwerp.

About  a month ago I spent a beautiful Sunday afternoon with my youngest daughter Elizabeth. We went to Antwerp as there was an event Water-rAnt which I wanted to go to. My daughter went with me with the promise of an icecream… (a little blackmail now and then can’t hurt now can it 🙂 ). Read more about our trip to Antwerp!

Fashion: How to wear… woollen pants

Posted on Updated on

Woollen pants : with booties

In Paris I wore my comfortable woollen pants. You could see the photos in last Saturday’s post I wore these pants with my comfortable boots as I had to stroll around Paris all day long… Here are three different types of shoes you can wear with woolen pants : booties, sneakers and pumps. Which style do you prefer ? You can vote in the poll below the images… I am, as always, curious to see which style is the winner!
Love, Kathleen

My collection of Maeve Binchy books…

I always look forward to the end of October… then the book fair in Antwerp sets up its tents in Antwerp Expo and every year I count the days until I can visit it… a day of strolling through 4 halls of book stands, browsing here, sniffing there (oh yes I sniff my books !!),… At the end of the day I look at the books I wrote down on my list and then I start buying those that I really want. This has been my routine for more than 25 years now I’ve come to think of it !

In several beauty posts I already mentioned Mylène, a Belgian beauty and skincare brand, which sells through homeparties. Every couple of months, some friends and I come together at someone’s home, we gather around the table with some wine, tapas… and Mylène products! One of these products is an absolute classic : mink oil.

Lazy Sunday

Posted on Updated on

I wish you all a very lazy Sunday… on my blog this week you could read a review on the Garnier Miracle Skin Cream. In the how-to you could see three more styles on how to wear a polkadot A-line skirt. In the tips ‘n trips you could read part II of our weekend break to Holland and the new outfit of the week brought to you a classic… the grey woollen pants… with photos taken by my good friend Katrien on our daytrip in beautiful Paris!

But the most important post this week, you could read on Tuesday. I shared with you a very personal, life-changing story, telling you about my husband’s kidney failure, his time on dialysis and finally the kidney transplant which saved his life… Read this story as I really want to make people aware of the importance of organ donation! Do not hesitate to share our story… the more people that read this, the better!

Love, Kathleen
