The Impossible Blogosphere

A few days ago I had the pleasure to attend the Impossible Blogosphere event hosted by Smets in Brussels. After a long bus ride, my partner in crime Yasmine and I arrived at the fancy Smets store, where we could discover the S/S2013 collections while enjoying champagne and appetizers. As if seeing all those amazing designer pieces wasn't enough, we could try all of them on (!) and create an entire outfit, in which we got photographed to join the 'best outfit' competition. It took me about two hours to decide what to wear: so many gorgeous pieces! Most of it Everything was wayyyyy out of my budget, so it was a unique experience to be wearing this outfit.

Finally mine

H&M Trend wedges
After a lot of searching, crying (almost...), tweeting, messaging and thanks to two fine ladies (Kira & Loubna, I owe you!) these shoes are finally mine. I know they are not the most sexy shoes in the world, but after seeing Lucy and Danielle wearing them, I was sold. And they match with everything. YES.
Also, I'm definitely on a no-buy now.

Sneakers pt. 2

So yeah, I got myself another pair of wedge sneakers! My other pair is actually completely worn out (the heel got all loose) and Asos was having a sale on again, so I added these white sneakers to my collection. They're so comfy! The pants are new too, from the H&M mid season sale. I love that they look a bit like track pants but not too sporty if you know what I mean. I actually was a bit cold walking around in bare ankles but shhht - I was so tired of my winter wardrobe! Wishing you a happy weekend, my homemade biryani leftovers are waiting for me (YUM) together with way too much school work (BOO). See ya!

After a few days in busy London, we jumped on the bus to visit the wonderful Cambridge. I don't know about you, but I really got a Harry Potter-vibe here! The amazing buildings, perfect courtyards, small passages, big clocks,... We had a great time being showed around the city by my boyfriend's friends who study at Cambridge and were so kind to leave their shitload of school work (seriously, essays every week?! You won't hear me complaining about my occasional translation assignments anymore) and take us around places tourists aren't allowed to visit, such as Trinity College, Saint John's College and their dorms (which are way cooler than those in Leuven btw). My boyfriend and I both got really motivated to get studying after visiting Cambridge (well, at least for a week :D), and who knows, maybe one day I'll be there too, flying my broomstick  studying my ass off? Yeah, not gonna happen. But we can dream, right?

Dagen Zonder Vlees - Days Without Meat

Zucchini, pepper, onion & goat's cheese quiche
Dagen Zonder Vlees (or Days Without Meat in English) has been going on for four weeks now, and of course I am participating: I've told you before that I try to not eat meat very often because of the consequences for the environment and health, and because I don't miss eating meat anyway. I have to admit I was quite pleased that the recent horsemeat scandal drew some attention to the meat industry and how little we know about what's in our food (and especially meat) - I think loads of people would be reluctant or even disgusted to eat meat that often if they knew how it's produced or what is added... But that's another story.

London report: British Museum & Camden

On our 4th day in London we decided to visit the British Museum. It's impossible to see the entire museum in one day, so we decided to focus on the Egyptian (mummies!)and Middle Eastern collection.
