The New Icons & Neon

Not so much to say today: I'm drowning in school work (damn you deadlines! Also: I'm the biggest procrastinator EVER) so I won't have much time to blog for the next two months, but I'll try my best! I didn't really buy anything from the New Icons collection apart from this necklace (that my boyfriend at first mistook for a HANDBAG. I mean, how???) since I'm saving up my money (Aren't I always? Or at least, trying to...) I recently booked my second summer trip last week: a few days in Barcelona with my family! Yes, I'm visiting the homeland of Zara & Mango in the middle of summer sales. So prepare for some serious shopping damage...

White wedges

The weather has been great lately, so I've finally been able to wear my new wedges! I did the stupidest thing one can do with new shoes: wear them to go grocery shopping. Result: 3 blisters! I hope they loosen up a bit because I've already planned lots of outfits with these. Oh well, luckily I bought some flats from Zara yesterday to relieve the pain. And I'm eyeing these sandals (not too high, so perfect for on holiday!) but of course, my size is sold out everywere again. Maybe it's the universe telling me I should really stop buying shoes...

She Style Awards

A few weeks ago I got some pretty exciting news: my blog had been nominated for the She Style Awards! I'm competing next to some pretty awesome blogger ladies so I don't know about my chances to win, but if you think I deserve to win the She Style Award, go ahead and vote for me HERE! I can win lots of awesome prizes, including shopping vouchers and I get to write articles on She.be! Pretty cool, if you ask me. So what are you waiting for? Go cast your vote HERE! You can win a Vente-Exclusive voucher of €100 if you vote so there's something in for you too ;)

PS: While you're at it, maybe you could nominate my blog for the Knack Weekend Blog Awards too? ;) I'll be forever grateful!

Afternoon in Ghent

On Saturday my boyfriend and I had planned to spend the day with Hanna and her boyfriend Ali in their favourite city Hasselt. Unfortunately Hanna got sick so we couldn't meet up :( So instead my boyfriend and I decided to go to Ghent. We didn't really do much except for eating cake, drinking coffee and a quick visit to Zara. Thanks to Hanne we discovered this great coffee place called CafĂ© Labath: delicious lattes & cakes in a retro-inspired interior, what's not to like? It's also a nice place to just sit and watch people, cause we all know Ghent is THE hipster capital of Belgium.

Last of the season?

I love this fur coat, but I really hope it's the last time I've had to wear it this year. Like anyone else, I'm so bored with my winter wardrobe, and I'm so longing for some sun! Not much to say today, I'm spending my days behind my computer writing my bachelorpaper and cursing myself for not starting writing it earlier. Procrastination is my middle name.

London report: Notting Hill & Harrods

What better way to end our trip to London with the beautiful Notthing Hill area? We went on Friday so we didn't see the typical Saturday morning antique market, but my travel guide told me it wasn't really worth it: Portobello Road gets supercrowded on Saturdays, and I wasn't going to buy antiques anyway! And let's face it: the real attraction of Portobello Road is the Hummingbird Bakery and its amazing cupcakes. Of course I had to try the red velvet cupcake (cliché but so good!), my boyfriend went for chocolate with cheesecake filling. Mmmmm! So worth it.
