Birth day wish list

zondag 23 februari 2014


Next month my birthday is coming up and deep down there's always a little wish list of goodies I really like. I must admit, I never ever show my wishlist (except share it with you guys) to my beloved ones. The best gifts are the ones that come unexpectedly.
Meanwhile let me point out what I like, seen on the moodboard above :


coat Miu Miu
clutch Tom Ford
watch Qlocktwo
Perfume Absolue pour le matin by Kurkdijan
shirt Isabel Marant
distressed jean For all Mankind
heels Isabel Marant

Last night's oufit

#ootd #styledusoir #outfit 

Last night, we went out to discover this eatery I wanted to check out for the longest time. Finally, we made it and managed to get a table at Meat & Eat in Antwerp. 
The place is small but cosy, super friendly atmosphere and the people serving, they are the sweetest !
On top of that, the food is really, REALLY good. 
If you live in or near Antwerp, this is a place I highly recommend ! 

Meanwhile, let me share what I was wearing
grey jean H&M
blouse Bérénice
jacket Isabel Marant pour H&M
scarf Zara
shoes Zara

#inspiration #gold 


I'm not a big fan of Dries van Noten's current collection but this beautiful top caught my eye in the  window display of the Antwerp flagship store today. 
Gold is a fabulous color to match basics like white and black ; rumour has it it will be here to stay next season too. So, it might be a good investment to add some golden items to your wardrobe !

zucchini tagliatelle

woensdag 19 februari 2014

#healthy #recipe #nocarbs #vegetarian

Imagine this ; you wanna impress somebody you really like, your fridge is almost empty, you don't have (enough) pasta for 2 but and just a giant zucchini to work with. I'm about to save your day.
Slice the zucchini with the help of a julienne peeler into look-a-like tagliatelle wisps and sauté them for a couple of minutes in olive oil. Season them too.
Drop some cherry tomatoes in the pan as well (or sun dried, chopped - might work just as good)
After you're done, twist the 'tagliatelle' in some green or red pesto ; serve on a nice plate and sprinkle some freshly grated parmegiano cheese on top ! 
Enjoy !

#hotpink #isabelmarant

I was lurking and lusting for this scarf for the longest time. Saturday I finally decided I'm a lost case : I'm an official scarf addict. But who can resist such a lovely pink number like this one ?

Shoes for Sebastian

vrijdag 14 februari 2014

Kids are so lucky. They don't need excuses to buy a new pair of shoes. Their feet are still in 
growth modus. My son is growing up so fast ! One size more and he shares the same shoe size as his 16 year old sister ! 
Boy,  pretty soon he will be taller than the rest of us !
Hope he likes my choice for the Golden Goose sneakers I found for him today ..

I am SO excited ! Can't tell much yet but I will by the end of this week. Close friend of mine will get a proposal - and we are going to surprise her - she's going to have a fit ! 
Hopefully I can shower you in pictures pretty soon ; I will give them an engagement photoshoot as a gift .. can't wait to see her face. Meanwhile, I'm showing you my engagement ring made by Anne Zellien. Check out her online shop too ; not only does she design precious jewelry but she also has a lighter collection, very affordable for any budget.

PS her boyfriend just rang me to ask if I wanted to take some pictures of tonights event !! Stressing out here but uber excited !! 

Slow Knit

maandag 10 februari 2014

happy to show you the result of my knitting of these last few days.
Still working on the ajour or lace pattern in blush pink {this particular one will take a bit longer as it requires more counting and silent moments to make it}
Maybe it's a good moment too to tell you about this little webshop I've set up : so many people asked me where to buy these handmade scarfs. My close friends and family know where to find me but often fashionista's all over the globe mail me through my contactform to inform about these beauties and if possible, make one sur mésure .. so here it is, a safe way to order and purchase online (I work with Paypal)

I'll promise to update the shop on a weekly basis ; so bear with me ..
Keep in mind every item is handmade so it might take a while for the next big thing to appear online {meanwhile, you can follow me and the stuff I'm making through my Instagram account}

Saint Amour

zaterdag 8 februari 2014

Loyal readers of my blog will know I'm a fan of bread and Le Pain Quotidien.
Yesterday Mr C and myself got a chance to have breakfast together, so we walked down to LPQ in our hood. Inside all their lighting fixtures were covered in heart shaped post its.
Don't you just love those sweet little notes and messages ?

Cosy pastels

vrijdag 7 februari 2014

On my off school days, I like to work on my knitting and if possible, do this while I'm watching a movie. It has to be a movie that matches perfectly my knitting activity, so no Iron Man or full on action movies. I came across this beautiful motion picture Mr Morgan's last Love ..
Sir Michael Caine and Clémence Poésy, together in a Parisian setting .. need I say more girls ? 

I really loved this touching story, bases on a French novel La Douceur Assassine by Françoise Dorner. 
Of course, Clémence is a style icon for me and this made the film even more enjoyable watching.

Bag Lady

dinsdag 4 februari 2014

I've been saving up for this wonderful piece of leather ; so happy with my Proenza Schouler PS11 bag. I decided to go for the small size ; smaller shaped bags complement me better (I'm only 5'4")
Something to keep in mind next time you buy a new bag or tote and you are similar to my body shape.

I am thrilled about the color too ; glad I did not pick the ever safe black and went for this warmer tone.

Today I'm wearing 
Isabel Marant coat
Isabel Marant étoile sweater
both here and here 
distressed black jean Zara
Saint Laurent sneakers (not seen in these pictures)

The other day when I shopped at Step by Step, it immediately struck me how nice this shop smelled.
Very subtle - almost softly embracing you like a warm Summer wind - I just had to know what caused this. I could've guessed actually ; Diptique is a French based candle and interior perfume brand, known for it's lovely candle holders and designs on it.
It's not a bargon, a Diptique candle but it's worth the price. 
While other candles might smell chemical or synthetic, these smell like heaven on earth.
Specially with Valentine's day in mind, you might consider purchasing one for a romantic evening with the love of your life.
