Beauty : Mac – Eyebrow set

Posted on Updated on


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…

The 50-day challenge : finally…

Posted on Updated on

In July I had the crazy idea to do a challenge… a 50-day challenge of not buying any clothes, accessories or shoes… Now normally I regularly buy something… a T-shirt here, a pair of earrings there so 50 days were really challenging for me !

The first half went rather smoothly (as you could read here)… but how about the second half ?! With stores stocking up on fab fall fashion ?!

Well, my dearest followers, I am quite proud to say that I made it without buying anything at all ! I survived these 50 days really well thank you very much 🙂

What I did buy was some magazines like Elle, Feeling, Marie-Claire to do some research. Browsing through these magazines gave me inspiration for fall outfits. Instead of buying stuff, I made notes on which styles will be trending the coming season.

Did the research…

I even went to various stores to try heaps of new stuff for my fitting room fits (which will be posted really soon!) and no… I did not buy one single thing!

… did the fittings… now let’s have some action !

A bit earlier than other years I went through my fall and winter stuff. I really think that I will buy stuff more thoughtfully now as I did the research. This 50 day sabbatical made me think more about the things that are still missing in my wardrobe.

I did have some tough times of course with all those August day trips I did… Knokke, Antwerp, Brussels and then there was this fab boutique in my town that was selling out and those fantastic end of sale bargains that are now nowhere to be seen anymore… But I managed to avert all temptations !

Anyway… I’m off now… time to finally do some shopping !

Love, Kathleen

Fashion: Patterned coat

Posted on Updated on


At the beginning of spring I bought this rather eccentric coat at H&M. It’s not something I would usually buy as it’s quite special. You either love it or hate it. Some people don’t get this coat… especially men are not that wild of this coat (it might be the storks…) but frankly I couldn’t care less. The fact that it was at a 50% discount persuaded me to make the purchase though ! Read more about this outfit!

Outfit of the week : sneak peek

Mmm… interesting combination don’t you think ?! If you want to see more, you’ll have to wait just one more day ! I’m sure you’ll be back tomorrow…

Love, Kathleen

Belgium may be a small country, but it certainly is great in fashion ! Raf Simons, Dries Van Noten, Martin Margiela, AF Vandevorst, Diane von Furstenberg and so many other designers have put Belgium on the map of fashion… Fashion with a capital F that is… Ever since the eighties, Belgian fashion designers have been hugely important in the international fashion world.

Bozar and MAD Brussels now present an exposition which can still be visited until September 13th in Bozar, Brussels : The Belgians. An unexpected fashion story. Read more about our trip to this exposition!
