It happens to the best of us and almost to all of us. This is a topic everyone has an opinion on and advice to give. Today I’m talking about heartbreak. No matter the reason you and your partner broke… Continue Reading
Where are you right now? Which country did you just see again? These are questions I get quite a lot and it doesn’t surprise me as I do tend to fall off the planet every now and again. I was a bit shocked to discover how long it had been since my last blog post. How did that even happen? I guess I was too busy traveling, A LOT. Sharing images of my travels through Instagram seems so much easier when you’re spending not more than two or three nights at the same location. Time for a personal update! Continue Reading
I’m writing this blogpost from the airplane that will bring me to Bangkok. The capital of Thailand, the first place I ever saw in Asia (or outside Europe for that matter) and the start of my South-East Asian trip back in January. I’m writing this post on the third time I take this journey and I am writing this because I’m flying solo (again).
The question I get asked the most about traveling by yourself is, “Doesn’t it get lonely?”. To answer this question I would have to say yes and no… Continue Reading
Lately I’ve been feeling a bit jaded with the cookie-cutter fashion found in high street retail stores and I have been craving unique pieces. Expensive but gorgeous pieces of the high fashion industry, however, are far beyond my budget. Not when you’re traveling through Asia though. A couple of months ago I wrote a post about the shopping heaven that Hoi An in Vietnam is. I had several pieces custom made but I haven’t had the chance to show you these yet. This pair of shorts is the first item on to appear on the blog and it is one of a kind. Not only because I had it custom made but also because this fabric is actually meant for traditional Laos skirts (known as a sinh). I picked it up on the mainland next to Don Det and was carrying it around until I arrived in Hoi An. Continue Reading
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!

I know, I have been teasing you all a bit with the news I have been wanting to share. I gave away quite a few clues on my birthday and I’m so excited to tell all. When I turned 26, I wrote an article about what I wanted to achieve before I turned 30. It was scary to write but I felt like it resonated with a lot of you guys. I wanted clear goals, steps and a direction to follow in the hopes that all will go according to plan. A year later, I still want those steps and goals but it turns out that life just isn’t that simple and that, sometimes, you have to discover it along the way. But then again, if life would be predictable, what would be the fun in it anyway? Continue Reading
As the date of my take-off to India is getting closer, I’m diving into all things fashionable and travel-friendly. I’m a strong believer that traveling can go hand in hand with looking amazing. Alright, it might take a little more research and effort but I would love to do that work for you. You might have noticed that the blog is going more and more into a wanderlust direction and that is just the way I like it. Fashionable Wanderlust, as I call it, is something you can expect a whole lot more off in the future. That does bring me to a certain announcement that I’m super excited to share with you. I’ll be sharing my secret on the 10th of November. Keep a close eye on the blog! Continue Reading
