Fashion: Fitting room fits – Fall 2015

Posted on Updated on

IMG_3832

I did some some research on what’s trendy for the next fall season. While I was on my 50-day challenge of not buying any clothes, accessories or shoes, I thought it would be really hard trying on all these new styles, but actually I was quite ok with it. I’ve been having fun trying on stuff, trying on things that I would normally not even lay my hands on. Seeing myself in outfits I would otherwise never try, has opened my eyes.  I want to see more about these fitting room fits for fall!!

Belgium: Knokke – Optima open and La Terrasse du Zoute

Some of you who follow me on Instagram, may have seen some photos of a tennis event I went to a month ago. I hadn’t come around yet to do a blog post, but well… with some delay : here it is !

I have always been a tennisfan. I have scarcely played the game myself, but I always enjoyed watching a good game on television ever since I was a teenager. Back in the eighties Ivan Lendl, Bjorn Borg and Mats Wilander were my favorite tennis players. And once Belgium produced top players like Kim Clijsters, Justine Henin and Xavier Malisse, I watched their games as often as I could, even setting my alarm clock in the middle of the night to watch an important game !

My husband also enjoys the game (he was more a McEnroe and Connors fan) and so we were quite happy to have won some tickets for the Optima Open in Knokke (mid August), an event where former tennis players show what they still have in store.  Read more about our date to Knokke!

Quote of the day : summertime

Posted on Updated on

“I love summertime more than anything else in the world. That is the only thing that gets me through winter, knowing that summer is going to be there” – Jack McBrayer

Level 1… accomplished !

I seriously think there should be a support group for people who are having problems with facing the fact that summer doesn’t last forever… I would soooo definitely be a member !!! Summer is my favorite season and every year, when summer is nearing its end, I get a bit melancholic… I simply don’t like the days shortening and the mornings getting chillier. I just want to hold on to the summer season for as long as possible… which isn’t always easy as from mid August, you are confronted with it everywhere, whether you like it or not. In magazines, in shops, in the papers, on the internet, everywhere you look you there it is… “summer is coming to its end”, “back to school”, “what to wear next fall”. I try to ignore this for as long as possible and I am simply denying the fact that summer comes to an end. Read how I try to adapt to fall and winter!

Beauty : Mac – Eyebrow set

My first beauty post, now 3 months ago, I wrote about a MAC make-up tutorial I did.

One of the many tips I got from the make-up artist, was to emphasize my eyebrows as apparently that gives my face more depth and definition. So after the tutorial, on wich I saw the result of the eye brow set, I decided to buy it. Read more about this Mac eyebrow set!

Lazy Sunday

Posted on Updated on

This first week of September was quite busy on the blog. It brought us a bit of everything : a beauty post on micellar water, a quote on memories, a how-to-wear blue chino pants tutorial, a fashion trip to Brussels and an outfit of the week.

But what I am most proud of is that I succeeded in my 50-day challenge !! Those who follow me on Instagram, could see how I immediately hit the shops after finishing this challenge. The outfits I bought will be on the blog, no doubt about that ! But first let’s enjoy the last weeks of summer… and this fantastic lazy Sunday !

Love, Kathleen

At the beginning of the summer my husband and I went to Jardim, a pop-up garden in Antwerp to have some cocktails ‘n wine at Jardim. It is closed now, but hopefully will be open again next summer…
