Weekend Blog Awards (video)

Whoa, November has been busy up until now. Last week we had the press days in Antwerp, the H&M x Alexander Wang launch and most importantly the Weekend Blog Awards, hosted by Knack Weekend. I was nominated in the Fashion Category but I had some strong competitors so I knew my chances weren’t that high. Thank you for the votes nonetheless but I think the actual winners really deserved this one. Both Ruth and Nathaliegorgeous and above all hilarious bloggers behind The Merrymakers – have been managing a busy PR life and maintaining this cool blog, it was about time they got some credit for it!

My video accomplice Winny Man was there to capture every moment and yet again… she did an amazing job! THANK YOU WINNY <3

Work hard in silence. Let succes be your noise – Frank Ocean

I’ve never been one to brag about things I’ve achieved, I hardly dare to talk about it. Luckily, I have some friends and my parents that do that for me. They’re a real life conversation starter when it comes to my blog and I thank them for that. Normally, I’m very outgoing but I’m quite the opposite blogwise. Maybe it’s because people still don’t understand the blogosphere up to this day?

So I work hard in silence and I get a pat on the back from time to time. For example, a sweet colleague pinned a recent article about my Sacha collaboration up on the corkboard at work. I was surprised & quite happy to see that even my colleagues, who have nothing to do with the fashion part of my life, were proud of what I’d achieved up to this day. At least, most of them. Sadly, I stumbled upon the same article that had been ‘vandalized‘. Okay, quite the strong vocabulary… I ended up being a mix between Frida Kahlo, Salvador Dalí and Jack Sparrow. Very mature, indeed. Shall I print out every feature and let them sweat a bit? ;-)

Minimalist is the new diamond

They say diamonds are a girl’s best friend but I prefer to keep it simple: minimalist jewelry is what it’s all about!

Ever since I pierced my ear for the 6th time, I’ve been on the hunt for small earrings to decorate both of my ears with. I love to play around with gold and silver and different earrings on the same ear. I bought the shark teeth at Brussels Vintage Market last Sunday. The LoboGato stand caught my attention immediately. Not only because of our previous collab but they had exactly what I was looking for, including a reasonable price tag.

For those of you who saw the Lille video, saw me trying out a necklace at Le Dressing de Charlize. Well, this little fella was the one I ended up buying. I hate cloudy and rainy weather but somehow this cloud reminded me of dreams. I’m one to chase them and since 2014 has been all about that, I thought it should be part of my jewelry collection. As for the silver earrings, they’re a real eyecatcher! I scored them at Urban Outfitters for only a few euros and can’t stop wearing them ever since.

What’s your favourite?
