Love, Nina D.

So yesterday was pretty crazy. Besides Belgium winning against Russia (who cares anyway???), some other magical thing happened in our little country. For reasons yet to be discovered, The Vampire Diaries‘ very own Nina Dobrev was in town! I was ending my shift at the airport when a colleague told me she passed by the check-in desk as if he was talking about the weather outside!!! Little me freaked out, to say the least. I ran like I needed to catch five flights!!! After 5 minutes of looking for air to breathe, there she was… I’ll spare you the whole story, to keep it a bit more magical and mysterious (hihi). But I can tell you this: she took this selfie, she was gorgeous and above all super friendly!

I MET NINA DOBREV OH MY FREAKING GOD

Slowly, and then all at once

“I fell in love the way you fall asleep: slowly, and then all at once.”

Friday, yay! Some misunderstandings made me look for a new partner in crime for the Miley concert tonight but I’ve found one, so I’m at ease again. Other things happening this morning: the postman delivering my package, with his big blue eyes and handsome face… and me, in my Hello Kitty shorts, my messy out of bed hair and freaking tooth paste to cover my zit! On the bright side: he delivered what I ordered merely 12 hours ago. First up there’s Rens Kroes’ Power Food book. Kroes, as in, Doutzen‘s sister. Another natural beauty with a passion for healthy food. Second: the book I’ve been looking all over the place for: The Fault in Our Stars. I’ve been meaning to see the movie but I wanted to read the book first and see if it’s as good as everyone says it is. I’ve never cried because of a book before but this one ought to do the trick. I’ll definitely keep you posted. Speaking of books… TASCHEN is having a sale (up to 50%) next week! Looking for a cool gift or just another gorgeous coffee table book, then #TASCHENsale is the way to go!

On another note: I’m wearing some of my favourite pieces in this post. I got the honour to select some BOOHOO items and I’ve been in love with this cropped top ever since it was delivered to me! I haven’t worn the skirt as much as I want but Summertimes ask for fashionable measures, so I’ll be ready for y’all! And what’s that on my feet? Oops, a little something something I bought at the &Other Stories opening party in Antwerp. Come on, they’re gorgeous! Who could refuse such a pair (at 20% off!!!)? Nobody, I tell ya!

Happy Friday everyone ^^

New Acquaintances

Miracles happen in Brussels, which was proven again last Sunday. Mont des Arts was once again the place to be. The team and I were wandering around, enjoying an ice cream and shooting for the blog, when we bumped into these two guys. They asked us if we wanted to pose for their camera. Suspicious and shy, we stood against the wall and struck a pose. Little did we know, this would be the result. Let me introduce you to Ahmed Caliskan, Pharmacy student with Turkish roots that studied in Paris and is currently working in our little Belgium country. It’s always a pleasure to enlarge my network of talented people, so this new acquaintance was more than welcome. Who knows, you might see more of his work on the blog soon!
