Same Same But Different

Posted on February 26, 2015

Hey! I’m so happy today because I can welcome you with a brand new blog design. I’ve been working on this design for a while now with the talented Julie Wijckmans and have completely fallen in love with it (did you notice the little plane on the side?). As you might have noticed the blog is evolving from fashion focused to a combination of both my loves, travel and fashion. Since I’ve traded my job in fashion for a life of travel, I’m excited to share with you this new side of my life. A new start accompanied by a new design, same same but different! Those of you who have traveled in Asia will know exactly what it means. For those of you who haven’t made your way down here (I’m currently in Vietnam), it means that it’s still the same fashion blog but there will be much more travel, amazing tips, hotspots all over the world and definitely more adventure!

Marble Palace

Posted on February 6, 2015

Getting up at 5 am to watch the sunrise is not something you do when you’re not traveling. When you are traveling however, it is so often worth it. Don’t get me wrong it still hurts but watching the world come to life had a certain magic to it, more than the sunrise will ever have. Continue Reading

Why You Should Do The Touristy Thing

Posted on February 4, 2015

Contrary to what the title of this article might suggest I’m the last one to encourage you to behave like a stereotypical tourist or backpacker but stay with me here. I actually like to see us more as visitors of a country, observers of a new culture or just passers-by. I believe in having respect for the culture that you are visiting and for nature in which the country resides. Even if the locals don’t have that same respect. Continue Reading

It’s Been A While

Posted on February 2, 2015

Wow, I never expected to leave the blog behind for so long. It started with one bad WIFI connection and then another and another (not that I have been able to locate excellent wifi since) and then came the preparations for a new design for the blog. That new design looks amazing and will come really soon but I didn’t want to leave the blog alone for much longer than I already have so here it is, finally a new post! I created so much content already traveling through India, Maldives, Laos and Cambodia already that I didn’t really know which post to start with first. I decided to go for one of the outfit shoots that I did right at the beginning. These photos were taken on the houseboat that we took to travel through the Kerala backwaters around Alleppey. This was truly a beautiful start to get to know India and I’ll show you more about this soon. Continue Reading

Hello From India

Posted on December 14, 2014

Traveling on the ‘superfast’ train (hint: it’s not fast at all) from Kottayam to Kovalam I wanted to put a quick post online. India so far has been fascinating and beautiful. I should actually say Kerala has been fascinating and beautiful because the provinces of India are quite different from each other. Internet connection however has been difficult to find. I’ve been hoping for hotels with WiFi but that is not a given here (me, an internet addict?). Apart from my internet connection it has become quite clear that India takes control over a lot more. Time is one of the main things, India is going to decide what your life is going to look like. It’s no longer in your control, so lay back and enjoy. Continue Reading

Pressday with Weekday

Posted on November 27, 2014

During our Antwerp pressday marathon I decided to wear one of my favorite outfits. Predictably it consists out of my completely worn out Steve Madden boots and customized ripped denim combined with my brand new WEEKDAY top and this amazing Selected Femme Becca Wrap coat. While spending the week in Amsterdam a little while back I couldn’t miss out on paying a visit to the WEEKDAY store. With pieces from other brands such as Cheap Monday, Whyred, Rodebjer and their own brand, the store is an ideal mix between expensive and very affordable pieces. If you’re around, put it on your to-do list. Back to the coat, it has been hanging in my closet waiting for colder weather and since the temperature has dropped it hasn’t come off. It literally goes with any outfit as it perfectly cinches in my waist. Continue Reading

A Little Dot Jewelry

Posted on November 19, 2014

I would love to tell you a little story today, as you know my first solo trip was to Thailand. I absolutely fell in love with the country and I was very happy that I had chosen Thailand as my first solo destination. One of the spots that I remember most fondly is the island of Koh Tao, a diver’s paradise (even though I didn’t go diving) and it has the most mellow atmosphere. It’s also here that I discovered the cutest little shop Nuchi who carries a jewelry brand that I have come to love dearly, A Little Dot. Cosmic coincidence, or as I like to call it, social media, connected the designer of the brand, Suparat and myself once again as we started mailing each other from across the globe. Continue Reading
