Posted on Updated on

Cathedral from Antwerp, seen from the Groenplaats.

Antwerp has a lot of events, especially in summer. At the end of August you can enjoy the ‘Bollekesfeest‘ which is a series of activities throughout the town : music, dancing, markets, walks and cycle tours and of course eating and drinking (it wouldn’t be Belgium otherwise) !  Read about our trip to the Bollekesfeest in Antwerp!

Today’s quote : my body

Posted on Updated on

I like my body because it’s not just mine, but me – Ruby Tandoh

2015-08-26 quote

I like my body now (ish…). it was a ride with ups and downs though…  I’ve already made my jo jo-confession (in this post), so you know that the scales aren’t exactly what you call my best friends. Every time I got them down to a weight I was ok with, I managed to get them back up again. Read more about the struggles I had with my body and weight!

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!
