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

Zwolle, Museum De Fundatie.

A couple of weeks ago you could read about the first day of our weekend break to Holland. On the third day we went to a wellness resort, but I have yet to tell you about our second day! Well, actually we wanted to go to Giethoorn, a delightful little village with heaps of canals, beautiful houses and gardens. Unfortunately the weather didn’t look very promising that morning as it was raining cats and dogs, so we decided to visit two little towns, Zwolle and Kampen, instead.

Today’s quote : organ donation

“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 man 🙂

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.
