Zalando Blogger Awards 2014 (video)

Last week fashion loving Flanders got to enjoy the first ever edition of the Belgian Zalando Blogger Awards. After the Dutch version, us Belgian bloggers had the chance to win 3 awards: the Newcomer, People’s choice & Jury award. Paris, Texas welcomed us for drinks and yummy bites and some ex-schoolmates of mine were waiting for us in the darkroom to get our picture taken. Before the nominees were announced and the winners were given their pretty awesome award (+ shopping voucher!), we got a blog class by the lovely Yara & trends class by Belgian journalist Veerle Windels.

Then it was time to announce which pretty ladies got to go home with a rose gold coathanger + one year free Zalando shopping. Svea behind Les Folies des XX won the Newcomer Award. People’s choice went straight to An-Katrien of Teacups & Dresses. And last but certainly not least: my babe Paulien – a.k.a Polienne – snatched away the biggest price of them all: the JURY award! Handed over by Yara herself. Congrats girls!

Mmmm, what a lovely weekend it has been! Mostly because of the oddly warm weather for an October weekend but also because it was the perfect end to a fun week! Besides attending the Zalando Blogger Awards and catch up with my blogger babes again after what seemed to be a while, I got featured in the newspaperTWICE! First off was Het Nieuwsblad, who talked about how bloggers – including myself – were the new designers. A lovely surprise that made my day! That same day I got a call from Het Laatste Nieuws who interviewed me and sent a photographer immediately after. On top of that, I also received M-Magazine in my mailbox which featured me and my shoes as well. So this week, I had multiple choices regarding features which made me think, I have certain items in large quantities

  1. Essie nailpolish ➵ Hands down the best nailpolish on the planet… And I’m not saying this because I’ve met the actual Essie. No, the brush, the texture and the multiple choice of colors… Essie has got it all. And me too! I bought 6 polishes this month alone and I loooove them. My mom & sis steal them from time to time but I can’t blame them. I, for one, can’t go a day without Essie on my nails.
  2. Yves Rocher lipsticks ➵ I got 15 of these babies to test out and I put a few on Instagram already. I’m hooked!!! My favourite colours are Rose Vif, Tangerine & Cerise Noir.
  3. &Other Stories items ➵ I mostly buy cosmetics there but I caught myself buying some accessories (necklace & phonecase) and a gorgeous dress too. Some of you might have seen me wear it on the #TheFashionFolioxSacha launch party.
  4. Perfumes ➵ Life’s too short to have only one perfume [at a time]. So, I have about five… These three are my favourites: D&G n°14 La Tempérance, Diesel Loverdose & Zadig&Voltaire La Pureté.

My Boohoo Favourites

It finally hit me: Boohoo is what your wallet is thinking/feeling/screaming after an online shopping spree… A jumpsuit here, a pair of shorts and a few cropped tops there. Add some jewelry, two pair of shoes and an it-bag. AHMAGAAAA, your wallet should be happy. You can shop online and justify each and every penny spent because you’ll get the biggest delivery of your life. I love me a shopping trip on UK’s 24/7 online shop heaven. Here I am, in my favourite Boohoo pieces. I’m mostly in love with those shorts and the embroided details. But don’t get me wrong, that jumpsuit is an eyecatcher as well. Too bad, all these pieces aren’t very Belgian weather proof -.-” Oh ooohh, that means a new shopping trip is around the corner?
