Black fur

Is it too soon to have a winter jacket on my wish list? I'm loving this leather and fur number from Zara. Will put this one on my birthday wish list. Or is it weird to be asking for fur and black leather in the middle of august? I love it anyway! 
 ps. It's hard to be posting when on holiday with my lovely boyfriend, but I try my best!

Favorite summer snack

My favorite superfresh summer snack? If I'm out of watermelon, I definitely opt for a fresh grapefruit right from the fridge. As a drink I'll have some cold water with lemon and mint leaves in it (and optionally, other fruit like strawberries or peach) or some home made iced tea.

Spain III

So I still owe you some pictures of my second week in Spain, in Javea. I stayed at a friend's house for a week with four other girlfriends and you can maybe imagine how fun that was! Especially because most of us study and live in different countries it was so nice to just talk, watch tv, cook, tan, swim and party together. I definitely want to have another one of these little reunions next summer!

ZARA sale items

What do I love more than shopping at Zara? Shopping at Zara during sales! (that's my materialistic self speaking) As you may know, Zara is considerably cheaper in Spain because it's a Spanish brand, so shopping there during sales (or rebajas) in Spain is very smart. That's also why I had to go to Zara in three different cities. Take a look at the gems I brought home with me..

Spain II

Here's my picture diary of the first week I spent in Spain. It constisted of enjoying the heat, reading all Fifty Shades books, swimming, drinking granizados and claras (beer with lemon), tanning, going for walks with my dog, eating tapas and sleeping. How relaxing can a holiday be?

Credits go to for the tutorial for this collage!

Because it was so relaxing, I don't have many 'human pictures' if you know what I mean, but I'll make up for it in the next Spain post! 

Today (in Belgium) seems to be one of the first days this summer with actual summer weather, so I must go out and enjoy it. I will also try to take picture of my Zara sale buys today. 

What are your favorite things to do on a relaxing holiday?

Spain I

I'm back! I spent the past two week in Spain where half the time I didn't have my laptop so I didn't get a chance to blog. But now I have all these great sunny Spanish pictures I can show you! 

I spent the first half of the holiday in a quiet little town an hour away from Barcelona and the second half I joined a group of 5 crazy girls I call my friends in a - considerably less quiet - town called Javea. I'll make two separate picture diaries of my holiday and show you some of the damage I did at Zara so stay tuned!

When I'm at the beach, I like to have a very bright and summery color on my nails and toenails. I found the perfect beach color - Pink by Sinful Colors - in my sister's nail polish stash and took it with me to Spain. It's perfect and so bright! 
So if you're looking for the brightest, pink/orange/red neon color, try out this one. It looks great also because it makes your hands and feet look tanned.  I'll show you a picture of my nails with this color soon!

DIY tie dye destroyed shorts

A little belated, but here it is: the first DIY on my blog! I started off with a boring pair of straight-leg jeans and ended up with what could become my favorite pair of 'destroyed' shorts. I suggest checking out Weheartit for inspiration, 'destroyed shorts'. The bright side is that it's really really easy. Here's how you do it:

New handbag obsession: the Givenchy Antigona bag. First saw it on Chiara from the Blond Salad, now I want it on me! I love the simple shape and how you can carry it in two different ways. I think it's also quite spacious so I can fit in all the bits and bobs that wander around in a handbag (5 different lip balms, 4 pens, tissues, mints, keys etc.). Definitely something I'll be saving up for, a new designer handbag. So much better than having 20 different H&M bags if you ask me.

Which bag(s) is on your wish list?

ps. it took me a while to get wifi here in Spain, but now that I have internet, I'll be posting every day! Hasta luego ;)

Net a porter

The sales are on at Net-a-Porter! I had a quick look and there are some pretty nice bargains. Including the amazing McQueen curved heels I spotted a few months ago (unfortunately not in my size). There are also many pretty Miu Miu heels on sale. Go check it out!


Sneak preview

Here's a little sneak peek of my DIY'd shorts. I'm really pleased with the result! A full how-to and better pictures will follow soon!


Food diary - Tuscan edition

I still remember I had to show you some pictures of my trip to Italy, but I thought I'd start by showing you the best parts: the food. So here's another food diary, but completely Italian style (proper food porn, if you ask me). And yes, I ate all kinds and forms of pasta all week. When you eat in Italy, you've got to do it right. Get inspired and enjoy!

DIY inspiration

I was feeling a little DIY-inspired yesterday, so when I found an old pair of jeans I hadn't worn for years, I thought it was time for a DIY project. It's actually still in the making, so bear with me while I make the finishing touches! 

Here's some perfect DIY inspiration for the other creative souls ;)
How can you NOT get inspired by these shorts?
