‘TIs The Season To Be Tanned: Christmas in Australia

Posted on December 22, 2015

You’re getting ready to warm up with some hot chocolate as the temperatures are lowering and the nights are becoming longer. As that first layer of snow falls, you’re planning secret Santa with your family and getting into the Christmas spirit. This is what I love. But oh wait, that’s not my reality this year (even though I heard it’s not cold in Belgium either). I’m traveling in Australia and will have to go a second year without my family this Christmas. Last year I still had a bit of cold in the mountains of Darjeeling, India, but this year I’m in full summer mode. That means water slides, barbecues, cold salads, air conditioning and walking around in flip flops and shorts all day, every day. This leaves me with the feeling of a shoe that doesn’t quite fit. Even though it is a reality for everybody living in the southern hemisphere, summer and Christmas do not seem like the most obvious match to me. Continue Reading

Organize Your Jewelry

Posted on September 1, 2014

Ever since I wrote this popular post about how to personalize your closet, I vowed to oganize and declutter my own jewelry collection. Happily a little later Ezis Living was so kind to send me a beautiful three-story clear box by Nomess Copenhagen. Continue Reading

My Dream Mansion

Posted on May 21, 2014

Hold the phone, I have found my dream mansion. I came across photos of this mystery house in Bellengin, South Wales Australia, a little while ago but have been simply obsessed with it. I would love to find out which house it is in if I can rent a room in it. But seriously, how much does this look like paradise? Continue Reading

Amsterdam // Stout & Co.

Posted on May 2, 2014

Details are what separate luxury from the rest. While visiting the Amsterdam Bed & Breakfast Stout & Co. this is what was most eye-catching for us. Every corner you turn, window you look through or magazine you pick up, you find ingenious little details which come together in a perfect concept. In the bedroom for example you will find these little accessories referencing the West-Flemish heritage of one of the owners or the way the name “Stout” refers to the past of the building as a former brewery. It’s very exciting for the senses and made me feel like a very lucky blogger. Continue Reading

Eigenzinnig // Inspirational Quotes For Your Interior

Posted on March 31, 2014

Today I would like to tell you about something special. As you know I have been working hard to “change for the better”. When turning 26 last year, I wanted to work towards my future and to see how my goals and hopes would fit in that plan. While doing this, I’ve had the pleasure to work with Rhea Lizen, founder of Eigenzinnig. Since I’ve had many inspiring and interesting conversations with Rhea, I like to think of her as somewhat of a like minded spirit, often talking way longer that we should. Continue Reading

The Amsterdam Hotspot Guide

Posted on March 13, 2014

While spending time in Amsterdam for business and pleasure, I had the opportunity to really discover the city. During the new year I’ve been back for about three times. When I had the opportunity to stay for a longer period of time, I got the chance to get a proper feel of the city. It’s difficult to do that when you’re just visiting. Spending a couple of week at least gives you a little bit the feeling of living abroad for a short time. Continue Reading
