Prints charming

My love for designer Dries Van Noten is not a secret. The SS2013 collection and its plaid shirts in different fabrics combined with floral prints, made me want it all. Give me some Dries, please! For now, I'll combine the plaids and polkadots hanging in my closet. And maybe I can buy some great Dries-fabrics at his stocksale in a couple of months. To be continued...

Winter blues

This week a serious case of winter blues got the better of me. I felt uninspired, tired and bored with my everyday routine. Never one to dwell long on negative feelings, I decided to shake things up a bit. Instead of hitting the snooze button, I now start my days with a short meditation to clear my mind. Followed by a healthy breakfast and some time behind my computer getting inspired - I even set up a Pinterest account. After my 9-to-5, a long walk through the city helps me relax before going home. I filled my apartment with spring flowers, cooked some delicious new dishes and splurged on new grey bedlinen - oh so soft. The extra R&R already made a huge difference - I feel energized and ready for Spring.

No more bad hair days. And that's that.

What I loved... in January


The first month of the year is kind of a transitional month. Party season isn't over yet, but work comes already knocking at your door again. I finally had the chance to go see my all-time favourite: James Bond. The new movie didn't disappoint me, neither did Daniel Craig. Scored some beautiful clothes in the sale, like this wool dress from COS. Booked a spring trip to Paris, with a stay in this cute hotel near the Eiffel tower. Ate a giant burger and a whole lot of fries at De Burgerij. And had parties with family and some Antwerp hipsters. New year's resolution no. 2: let's party at least once a month!
