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

New Year’s Eve and a Dealer on the Maldives

Posted on April 18, 2015

Finally I can show the lower half of this gorgeous dress on the blog. This was my outfit for New Year’s Eve on the Maldives and has been my go-to outfit for any fancier occasion during my trip. But first I want to tell you the story about my New Year’s Eve experience on the Maldives because it’s a story worth telling, if only for the entertainment value. Next to being a stunning country with the most beautiful colors of water (upon arrival the first thought is: Does this really exist?!), kind people and the best dive sites in the world, the Maldives is also a Muslim state. This means that they do not serve alcohol, not a drop, nor are you allowed to bring it across the border, at least not onto the local islands. The country is divided between resort islands and local islands, which also has different laws in place. The resorts basically buy an entire island and run their hotel like any retreat worldwide. A local island is different in the sense that it abides by local muslim laws, which means no bikinis on the beach and no alcohol. A bit different from what you expect when you’re first planning a trip to the Maldives, right? The reason why you should visit only local islands anyway? It’s the only way to experience the local culture and also … budget. Resorts are not just pricey, they are very very expensive. But more on that in a different post. Continue Reading

Imagine, you’re planning your next trip abroad. What should you to take? A bikini or two for sure, a pretty dress for at night and … make-up? Of course!

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
