Today’s quote : organ donation

Posted on Updated on

“Don’t think of organ donation as giving up part of yourself to keep a total stranger alive… It is really a total stranger giving up almost all of themselves to keep part of you alive” – author unknown

My husband has a transplant kidney. At the age of thirty-one (in 1999) he was diagnosed with chronic kidney failure, which means that his kidneys were slowly, but very surely, failing to work. When we heard this diagnosis, we immediately knew that our lives would never be the same again, as this meant that sooner or later my husband would have to rely on dialysis and sooner or later he would need a transplant kidney.

Beauty : Garnier – Miracle Skin Cream

Recently I bought this Miracle Skin Cream from Garnier. I thought it was an ordinary daycream, but actually it is more like the CC crème from Erborian I bought and of which I am quite delighted !  Read more about this Garnier Miracle skin cream!

Lazy Sunday

Posted on Updated on

And it’s Sunday again… I’ll make it a lazy one if you don’t mind 🙂

Why don’t you do the same and take a look at what my blog brought to you this week… a beauty post about a trip to a wellness resort (heaven!), a quote about goals and dreams (because you’re never too old to have them!), a post on how to wear ‘en rouge et noir’ (you can still vote for your favorite style), a tips ‘n trips post about beautiful Paris (because Paris is always a good idea!), an update on my October-challenge (will I make it??) and a new outfit of the week (now who wouldn’t fall in love with these polkadots?!).

I wish you a good, fab and lovely time on my blog and enjoy your Sunday!

Love, Kathleen


Fashion: Polkadot skirt

A couple of weeks ago I went to Antwerp with my youngest daughter Elizabeth. A post on this trip will be on the blog in a couple of weeks. It was a fab Sunday afternoon at the end of September, so the perfect time to take some photos of my polka dot skirt…  Read more about this outfit!

October challenge : halfway there

Posted on Updated on


The first of October I started a new challenge. You may remember my first challenge, where I banned myself from shopping. Well this time I set myself a physical challenge : in October I want to reach the 50k mark. Oh yes, I want to run 50k in 31 days! To some this may seem peanuts, and actually it is… but as I have a bad back (as you could read in the first post about this challenge) to me 50k is quite a lot! Read how I’ve been doing so far…
