Beauty : Vichy Idéal Body – serum/milk

Posted on Updated on


A couple of weeks ago I won some products from Vichy. Can you believe how excited I was when the box with goodies was delivered ?! I thought I’d get some samples, so I was really glad with what was actually in the package… these 3 full size products 🙂 :

I haven’t used the sun protection yet as I had just started a new bottle. I will save this bottle for next year as the bottle I just started will last me through the summer.

I have been using the other two products though. Today you can read what my thougths are on the Idéal Body serum/milk. Read more about this Vichy body milk!


Lazy Sunday

Posted on Updated on

Another week has passed so time for a Sunday recap of what has been happening on the blog this week…

In my beauty post you could read all about the Catrice eyeshadow pallettes I have been using these past months… so cheap and I’m ever so satisfied with this product ! On Tuesday, quote-day, you could read a quote on long-distance friendship and I tell you about the 29-year old long-distance friendship I’ve been having with Katelijne. She gave me permission to use a photo of herself looking fab at 40 and I also included a photo of us two when on citytrip in London way back in 1997…

In the ‘how-to-wear‘ you could see 3 styles on how to wear a navy striped pencil skirt. I do like all styles and find it so hard to choose ! Have you already taken part in the poll ?! Why don’t you vote for your favorite outfit like… right now 🙂

In the tips ‘n trips post you could read part II of the ‘In Flanders Fields’ series. And the outfit of this week, well I think it’s so glam… a seventies dress to die for ! Don’t you just love the pictures my husband took in Antwerp (and also one in Caen, Normandy, when on holiday).

And to end this fab week just a picture to make you dream of luxury, sun and sea… enjoy your Lazy Sunday and cheers !

Love, Kathleen

Fashion: Seventies dress

Posted on Updated on


The seventies are trending and as I was born in that era, I must have at least one item that embraces that style. So at the end of June I  bought this überlong dress on sale at H&M. The length of the dress, the flowy fabric, the blue/brown colour scheme, the floral print… this all screams seventies style to me ! Read more about this outfit!

View towards Diksmuide and the river Yser from the roof terrace of the Yser Tower.

Last week you could read part I of my In Flanders Fields trips. This week I tell you more about a short trip I did with my youngest daughter Elizabeth on a windy Saturday at the end of July. As my husband and son went to a football match, Elizabeth and I wanted to spend our time more wisely and we went to Diksmuide.  Read about our trip to Diksmuide!

Fashion: How to wear… navy striped pencil skirt

Posted on Updated on


Navy striped skirt and red

I teamed my navy striped pencil skirt quite casually in last Saturday’s post. I just added a marcel and some comfy sneakers and I was off to go.

Now here you see 3 more dressed up how to’s… which one do you like best ? The one with the cute polka dot blouse, the one with the crispy white bustier or the one with the boxy blue top ? You can vote for your favorite combination in the poll below the images. I must say I find it really hard to choose between these 3… I love them all !!!

Love, Kathleen

See two more styles!

Today’s quote : long distance friendship

Posted on Updated on

There is magic in long distance friendships. They let you relate to other human beings in a way that goes beyond being physically together and is often more profound – Diana Cortes

Make sure you read the full post as below my thoughts on our friendship, Katelijne also wrote  some words ! Read more about my long-distance friendship with Katelijne!
