Ahh, Sunday… I can’t even enjoy you for a second. I’m about to go to work and as of tomorrow, I’ll be enjoying a 10 day break. Ironic, because it’s my last month at the airport. But oh well, it’ll give me time to enjoy other stuff. Like my new pair of Zign shoes, for example. They were quite the eyecatcher when I visited the big SNITT sale last week and although I usually don’t wear flats, I’m loving them too. Maybe it’s the pointy toe, the zipper trimmed sole or the lacqué material… whatever it is, it works! Granted, it’s a tad too cold in Belgium for these babies but I’ll be sporting them as soon as I can!

In love too? They’re available in black and red at Zalando!

Make me your Aphrodite. Make me your one and only but don’t make me your enemy

I’ve never been one to hide I have roots outside of Belgium but before I can even spell ‘I’m Greek‘, my name gives it away already. Having a name like this, has made various scenarios come to life. Questions like ‘Isn’t that a Goddess?‘, ‘Is Zeus your dad?‘ or ‘With an F or PH?’ have been asked repeatedly. But let me tell you this: I love my name! Jokes or no jokes, I honestly couldn’t care less. I can’t imagine my life without this name. And yes, as most girls, I have wondered about how I would name my children and I definitely would want them to have a Greek name. I even got two names in mind!

Besides having Afrodite as my name, I now get to sport it around in everyday life… on a sweater! This pretty cool piece is O’Rèn, a Belgian brand by two talented fellas from my neighbourhood. I was so excited about the whole Olympus collection and I freaked out when I saw that my name was used too! Thank you boys, I can’t wait for the Jeux de Mots collection!

Shirkers are red, Workers are blue. I’m loving this Lee sweater and so will you!

Last season, I was contemplating buying the famous Filles à Papa Courage sweater but I ended up not to. Too expensive? Too mainstream? Too lazy to go to the store? Whatever it was, I stopped thinking about it and thus stopped the wanting it. But then out of the blue – pun intendedLee turns 125 and Filles à Papa gets to make a capsule collection for the jeans brand. Helloooo indigo sweater, wanna come to mama!? That one, I couldn’t get off my mind. Not too pricy! Totally my colour! And above all: very eager to find this beauty. The search started bumpy but all of a sudden I remembered this Lee pop-up in Brussels! Called up my girl T and headed over as soon as we could. I’ve been workin’ this beauty ever since ;-)
