Pics of April days

aprilshots

Easter eggs, COCONUTT parties, raspberries, friends and crunches… That’s pretty much what April has been about up until now. Some shots have already been uploaded to Instagram, others are part of the Room for Thought app, otherwise known as Pic of the day. Quite a cool photo diary app, with a few filters and more “privacy” than Instagram. Your iPhone asks you to take pictures at random moments. And although randomness is key here, I wait for the right moment to snap something fun because after a year of everyday pics, you can make a cool photo diary with the help of Hema. I started taking pics back in September so I’ve got a few months left to fill my photo diary.

Pic your moment right… do it now!

&Other Stories: Secret Haven

If there is magic in the world, it’s contained in water. For water can wash away your worries, sins and make you come to peace again. But water alone won’t do the trick anymore, once you’ve had Secret Haven touch your skin. I can not tell you enough how happy I am &Other Stories is coming to Belgium. Granted, their clothes & shoes are amazing… but I think I’m more of a cosmetics fan, although I’m not a beauty blogger. I bought this Bath & Body wash and Scrub in London, back in February. The scent gave me a special feeling, an instant safe feeling, as if I’m being held in a haven, away from reality and all its bad things. Ah, how I love my Secret Haven showers these days! On top of the scent, I’m in love with the packaging and the fact that you can recycle the bottles in stores.

Sweet wishes, A.

A war inside my core

When it sings, when it lies, when it cheats, when it bribes. There is a war inside my core. I hear it fight, I hear it roar

Working, working out. You’ve probably read all about the #changeforthebetter campaign a few days ago. Well, working out isn’t the only thing I’ve been up to. I’ve been drawn to dark clothing lately and I tend to buy and put together darker outfits. Either I go totally Dark Knight on everybody, or I combine my colourless outfit with my new cream coloured H&M trenchcoat (it’s absolutely gorgeous!). This outfit is quite on the dark side though, ready to fight the war inside my core (just some sore muscles)! This coat was a gift by friend J for my birthday. I’ve been carrying it ever since, even though I wasn’t always sure if long coats would fit my height. I threw on my fav pair of ankle boots and the problem was fixed, with a chique cherry on top, I might add.
