Take A Microadventure to Dinant

Posted on November 7, 2016

When my Sunday afternoon plans fell through, I looked at one of my best mates and we decided to jump in the car and take a microadventure to Dinant.

The term microadventure was first invented/claimed by adventurer Alastair Humphreys and can be defined as a “short, simple, local, cheap adventure”. It means that you can jump in the car or on the train and you don’t have to spend half a fortune on a plane ticket across the world. For me, these micro adventures are a way of life. There is nothing I love to do more than to inject a little bit of adventure into daily life. That is certainly the reason I love traveling so much. Every day is an adventure! Continue Reading

Seeing Clear with Polette

Posted on August 14, 2015

I can’t believe how nice it is to actually see clear. See the thing is, I actually need prescription glasses or lenses and I never made the time to get them. This means that I’ve mist quite a few beautiful things in my life. As I was planning my long-term travel, being able to see was quite important (go figure, right!?). A little while ago I found the perfect prescription glasses but there was still a problem on sunny days. Therefore, I jumped at the opportunity when Polette approached me with the option of testing one of their prescription sunglasses. Continue Reading

Vietnam Meets Antwerp

Posted on June 22, 2015

Most of the time, the favorite pieces of my wardrobe are pieces I picked up from abroad. This blog post is a beautiful example of Vietnam meets Antwerp. This kimono is another one the pieces I had made in Hoi An and I am in love with it. As you can read in my post of the time, I wanted a powder pink blazer and a long kimono, but I just decided to combine the two instead of making separates. The fabrics for kimonos were not right and the fit for the blazers were not modern enough. That being said, it is not the easiest piece to combine. Might be because it has the tendency to look like a giant powder pink bathrobe. But as it is a powder pink kimono, all combinations are possible. For this day I went for ripped denim to counterbalance the soft color of the kimono. Continue Reading

Back In The City

Posted on May 6, 2015

I can hardly believe it but I’m back in the city of Antwerp. For a week already! It has been busy, very busy. I ran from one press office to the other, saw all my blogger friends again, reunited with another precious group of friends at the most emotional wedding I’ve been to so far (it was soooo beautiful) and I’ve moved into the beautiful Antwerp apartment of one of my generous friends. Meanwhile I’ve had the worst cold and have finally overcome the battle with jetlag. These photos were taken during the Antwerp press days. It’s another basic outfit but I do like the contrast between the mint green coat and the leather bikerjacket underneath. These jeans were also one of the first items I collected from the boxes when I got back home. Continue Reading

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

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

My First Michelin Star Dinner

Posted on October 31, 2014

Considering myself a bit of a foodie it’s quite strange that I have never had a fine dining experience. You know, I just love eating! In a streetfood setting, a hip new bar in London or at home with friends. But a geniun Michelin star dinner I hadn’t yet had the chance to cross that off my list. And then I found out about this great iniative called Young KitchenRebels (aka Jong KeukenGeweld). Continue Reading
