Bathing in beauty


The last couple of days have been filled with DIY. No lying around in the sunshine for me, I still had to revamp my bathroom and decided it was time. So we fitted a lower ceiling to hide the ugly water heater unit and layed my new blackish cork floor. Then I had to varnish the floor a gazillion times, so blogging wasn't exactly a priority...
Anyway, I'm into the final stretch now. I'll be painting ceiling and walls this weekend, if only I could decide on the colour. Maybe a minty green (like in the colour scheme below)? Somehow I find the bathroom the most difficult room in the house to decorate... Stay tuned for the result!

Style crush: Hanne Gaby Odiele


Miss Hanne Gaby Odiele, catwalk queen extraordinaire, is Belgian like me. Helas, that's the only thing we have in common. She has endless legs and is not afraid to mix 'n match different prints, textures and colours. Known for her eclectic fashion taste, she's a regular on streetstyle blogs.
In 2006 she was hit by a car which left her in tatters, but after months of intensive physical therapy she reappeared on the runway for SS 2008. And she's been succesfull ever since...



Throughout the weekend I've been daydreaming about the outfit on the right. Those white jeans combined with the soft pink and touches of black, seems like the perfect transitional outfit towards Spring. White jeans, do or don't?
I found this picture on the People section of the Zara website. Dress up in your latest Zara purchases, take a nice picture and if the photo gets published you receive a gift certificate to buy - more - Zara designs. Now where did I leave my camera....

Sunday blues


Spending my Sunday at home with a stack of homemade pancakes for breakfast, the new issue of The Gentlewoman for company and a new dvd to end a perfect lazy day. See you on Monday!

Jean jean


Can't decide if it's the pink hair or the lovely denim clothes, but I really like this fashion editorial from Elle France. I'm a denim lover myself, so the washed out shirt and cute shorts-flower jacket combo would fit perfectly in my wardrobe.
