Relaxing in Jardin des Tuileries, enjoying the warmth of the autumn sun.

Today’s outfit is all about a classic piece… the grey woollen pants. I wore them at the beginning of the month on my daytrip to Paris and my friend Katrien took some photos there which I am now using for this post. Read more about this outfit I wore to Paris!

Holland: Zwolle and Kampen

Posted on Updated on

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.

Recently I bought this Miracle Skin Cream from Garnier. I thought it was an ordinary daycream, but actually it is more like the CC crème from Erborian I bought and of which I am quite delighted !  Read more about this Garnier Miracle skin cream!

Lazy Sunday

Posted on Updated on

And it’s Sunday again… I’ll make it a lazy one if you don’t mind 🙂

Why don’t you do the same and take a look at what my blog brought to you this week… a beauty post about a trip to a wellness resort (heaven!), a quote about goals and dreams (because you’re never too old to have them!), a post on how to wear ‘en rouge et noir’ (you can still vote for your favorite style), a tips ‘n trips post about beautiful Paris (because Paris is always a good idea!), an update on my October-challenge (will I make it??) and a new outfit of the week (now who wouldn’t fall in love with these polkadots?!).

I wish you a good, fab and lovely time on my blog and enjoy your Sunday!

Love, Kathleen
