Beauty : My favourite fragrances… part II

Posted on Updated on


Last week I did part 1 of this post. There I told you that I am loyal to 6 favorite fragrances. In part 1 I told you about my summer fragrances : Parfum d’été by Kenzo and Fragonard by Fragonard.

This time, I post about 2 favorites that, in my opinion, can be worn throughout the year : Pure Poison by Dior and White Linen by Estée Lauder. Read more about these 2 fragrances!

Fashion: White jegging

Posted on Updated on


I’ve been to Primark in Brussels recently… I know… Primark… Boy was it crowded over there ! To be honest with you, I didn’t think it was a shop for a 40+ woman… but I actually bought some things there and I must confess… they will be seeing me again !

I have been searching for a white skinny jeans for quite some time now, but there was always something wrong : too shiny, too sheer, not elastic enough,… so when I tried on a white jegging at Primark, I didn’t put my hopes up. But was I in for a surprise !! Read more about this outfit!

Today I start a 50-day-challenge… I am already loathing myself for putting myself through this ordeal.

The challenge I wil set myself for the next 50 days (so up until and including September 4th), is not buying any clothes, accessories or shoes… so… no new season shopping, no shoe shopping spree, no hunt for the perfect bling ! Oh my God… the more I write about it, the more I think about it and the more I think about it, the more excuses I’m already making up to NOT make this challenge work !

I’ve already told my husband about this challenge a few weeks ago (that way I thought I couldn’t back down anymore…) and he actually got a twinkle in his eyes… “Will this be a challenge for just 50 days ? If I were you, I’d challenge myself even harder and do it for a couple of months”. I emphasized that it was just a challenge and that I cannot make any promises whatsoever of me taking this challenge to a good end ! And that he can not hate me for failing… but of course if I should succeed… he will never hear the end of it !!

I have absolutely no idea how this challenge will end… I will most certainly tell you about it after these 50 days ! If, like me, you are dying to know whether I’ll make it or not, keep following my blog !

Love, Kathleen
