Blue skies, skyscrapers, palmtrees, art… Ah, my lovely Melbourne. Hi there, by the way! It’s been a while, I know. I’ve been keeping busy and never got around to blogging, I guess. I wish I just had Google Glass, it would be so much easier to soak things up and show you guys! I try to take as many pics as possible but there’s only so much I can post on Instagram without driving you guys crazy!

So, here’s an update: I’ve been doing a lot since I’ve arrived down under. Beach days, a day at the Werribee zoo, wandering around the city, drinking coffee (very important!) and of course SCHOOL! I’m very excited and keen on doing all the homework!!! I’m such a nerd, aren’t I? Well, I’ll try to post some more in the near future. I’m actually thinking of changing things around here. Stay tuned!

12 hours in Brussels

You’d think having half a month of jobless days, gives you more time to blog. Well, if that month is the last one before leaving for the other side of the world (read: Australia), forget it. Granted, I’ve had a few hours of doing absolutely nothing but I have had a lot of busy days too. When I wasn’t running from my doctor’s appointments to the bank and back to the health care office… I also met up with a few friends I wouldn’t be seeing at my goodbye party. One of those friends is my dear Renee.

Renee and I met back in 2013 when we were both doing our internship at Marie Claire Netherlands. I was always jealous of here because she was in the Graphic Design team, whereas I was responsible for the online articles, which I loved doing as well. Renee and I met up again that same year, when she came to Brussels to attend the Robbie Williams concert. From that day on, we had some sort of arrangement to meet each other every half year. Well, the arrangement somewhat happened and we kept doing everything to make it happen. As we did now. After I visited Renee in Rotterdam back in August, she took the train to visit me.

She made a vlog about the whole trip and I’m really amazed by her skills! She’s not only an awesome Graphic Designer, she also makes the best vlogs, will be an amazing photographer and she’s the best of friends you can wish for! Thank you for this awesome gift bae <3

The Fashion Folio is moving…

The secret’s out: the BIG move is about to happen… I’m moving to Australia in exactly one month! I decided some time ago that I still wanted to study something and preferably abroad, when my dad came with this ridiculously good idea of moving to Aussie. At first, I thought he was kidding… And I actually think he was up until the moment that I decided I was actually going for it. I’m a real goal digger, for that matter. I’ll be studying Graphic Design (letters, typography, yay!) at Shillington College and I’ll also work here and there… But most importantly: I’m going to live the Melbourne life and I’m going to enjoy every single minute of it.

I’ll also be travelling around whenever I can and I’ll definitely keep you updated of my every move in the land Down Under. I can’t wait to add more sun to my Instagram and to share all of my discoveries with you, here on the blog.

Now, let’s pack my bags… the most difficult of all tasks, if you ask me!
