Proud to be called a fashion diva…

Posted on Updated on


This week the lovely Stella from ‘Fashion and Style Police‘ contacted me and asked if she could use some of my outfit photos to make a post on her blog. I gladly gave permission… and the result can now be seen on her blog. I must say that I am a bit proud to be called a fashion diva 😀 The outfit with my seventies dress is her favorite, but check out to see what her followers think…

If you’ve got a bit of time, you should definitely browse on her blog… Stella is from Cheshire, England and is a fashion, beauty and lifestyle blogger. She also writes for the Huffington Post, where she shares her stories on motherhood… being a mum of the adorable twins Naomi and Nathan she certainly can tell a tale or two!

So check out her fab blog and thank you again Stella for making a ‘fashion diva’ post about me.

Love, Kathleen

Fashion: Flamingo’s on my dress

Posted on Updated on


A day after my 50-day challenge I went shopping with my sister Cindy. We went to Antwerp, the capital of Belgian fashion! When in Antwerp, I like to take a look in the & Other Stories shop in the Korte Gasthuisstraat. They have beautiful, trendy clothes, good quality and at a great price. This time I immediately fell for a flamingo-printed dress I saw in the shop window. I tried it on and what do you know… perfect fit! Read more about this flamingo-printed dress!

Stretching is obligatory after a run ! Even when it is raining... Love Kathleen #blog #thegoodthefabandthelovely #blogger #fitness #jogging #running #morning #morningrun #sunday #sundaymorning #stretching
Stretching after my morning run… now that’s something you’ll see me doing quite often in October  !

It’s been a while since I had my first challenge (you could read all about it here) so it’s time for a new one, don’t you think?!

For the month of October I set myself a physical challenge. I like jogging (as some of you who follow me on Instagram already may have noticed) but the past years I have discovered that the month of October is crucial… I tend to stop running and start my winter break extremely early… That is of course due to the changing of the weather and the shortening of the days. But to avoid that this year, I set myself a challenge… and to make it even harder I share this challenge on my blog! I took my first challenge to a good end, so why not this one ?  Let me tell you all about it!

Holland: Amersfoort

Koppelpoort : the beautiful 15th century entrance gate in Amersfoort.

A couple of weeks ago my husband and I went on a weekend break to our beloved neighbouring country… Holland. We love the hospitality and friendliness of the Dutch so when choosing a destination for a weekend getaway, Holland nearly always wins!

This time we stayed in Hotel Postillion in Putten at the Veluwemeer, but before going to our hotel, we made a stop in Amersfoort. Read the rest of this entry »
