Last Sunday it was date time with my husband ! We went to Antwerp, just a 15 minute drive from where we live. We go to Anwerp often and mostly to the historic part of town. But this time we headed to Het Eilandje.

Het Eilandje is the name of the part of town built around the two oldest harbor docks in Antwerp : Bonaparte Dock and Willem Dock. Old buildings are demolished or renovated, new buildings are built, roads are renewed,…  This neighbourhood is completely being restyled and has lots on offer !

Today’s quote : smile

Posted on Updated on

“I’ve got nothing to do today but smile” – Paul Simon

Comedy artist at Covent Garden, Londen.

Today’s quote is about something I couldn’t live without… a grin, a chuckle, a smile, bursting into tears from laughter (and sometimes even peeing your pants…). Laughing instantly releases tension and lets you forget about life and problems for a while. I would be really depressed if I should have to spend a day without laughter. Read more about this quote!

Coconut oil, the best beauty budget buy ever !

Recently I have discovered a few wonders and miracles of pure coconut oil. I stumbled upon a jar of coconut oil in my local beauty supermarket… it was hidden near hair colour and care for afro hair. I suddenly remembered some celebrity (whose name I forgot) stating,  that she was really taken with the wonders of coconut oil and revealing it as her beauty secret. I couldn’t remember what the hell she did with the coconut oil, but hey…  4,49 EUR for a jar of wonders… it couldn’t possibly be a rip off ?! Read more about the wonders of coconut oil!

Fashion: Maxi floral dress

2015-06-27 maxi dress4

One of the recurring trends each summer is the maxi floral dress. Every woman should have one ! Of course you can get a pricey, top-designer dress (and if your wallet stretches that far I can only encourage you to do so !!), but perhaps you’d rather spend your cash on basics then on a frivolous dress. As I don’t have the opportunity to wear a maxi floral dress that often, the one I bought at New Look last summer (at a 30% discount) will still do this year.

Fashion: LBD – Strapless

Posted on Updated on


Every last Friday of the month I will put a little black dress in the picture. As it’s the end of June and high summer is getting closer and closer, the LBD to start with is my strapless one.

I bought it several years ago at H&M for only 20 EUR and I do not regret this purchase at all ! I don’t wear the dress often, it being strapless. But it is such a basic dress which never goes out of style, so who cares that it is I don’t know how many years old ! Read more about this LBD!
