As probably a lot of you have seen already, I cutted my hair really short, about 2 weeks ago.
Now people wonder, how did I get there? Why would I cut my long, beautiful hair, that I’ve had long all my life, and go super short? Well here’s the story…
It started about then years ago, with this
Agyness Deyn for Jean Paul Gaultier. I believe that’s how I discovered Agyness, and I directly fell in love with her hair (and her style, later on). I thought the haircut was just fucking amazing, and wished for many years to have the same… but always thought it wouldn’t look good on me. However, I always had it somewhere in my mind, never forgot about it.
Then, lately, a few « celebrities » started to have the same haircut, people with different shapes of faces (I always thought I didn’t have a good shape for short hair…go figure!)
There was Miley of course
But then, there was also Garance Doré, which was a big shock. She’s always had long hair too, and her hair are super curly, just like me, and she had the guts to do it anyway!
And I thought it looked amazing on her.
The following step is that I met Alain Spaens, who owns the hairsalon by Joseph, a few months ago. And we started talking about doing a collaboration. I didn’t want to change my color, but for once, I was ready to change my haircut.
When I first asked him what he thought, he said « super short »! At first I was scared and said no. It was such a big change! But with time the idea grew in my mind, and I couldn’t stop thinking about it.
Since I know that he’s really talented, if I had to do it at some point in my life, it had to be with him! So I went for it! We first had a little meeting at his salon to talk about it, the place is just super cosy…
And then, the day after…. IT HAPPENED!
And then… VOILA!
I have to say I couldn’t be happier with the result! It’s exactly what I wanted, and it stays really me. People seem to really like it too, since I’ve got so many compliments.
So if you’re in need for a change, I would deeply advise you to pay a visit to my friend Alain at his hairsalon, his hands are magical!

Today I take you, once again, back to my trip in Bali. I want to tell you about my trekking with Agus (Tikus), the guide of Authentik Bali.
We met each other on my second day in Bali, through other people. He told me about his trekking experience, and how it was. It interested me right away, especially since a trekking was already on my to do list.
And I have to say, it was one of my best memories from this entire month. I ended up booking a second trekking at the end of my stay, since I had loved the first one so much. All in all he has around 15 different treks, so I know I’ll probably do another one next time I go to Bali.
The trekking usually last the entire day, and Agus (Balinese for Augustin) will take you in the real Bali. Be carefull, there is no definite path, it’s the nature. You walk through rice fields, you climb, sometimes you fall, you walk/swim through a river. It’s the adventure! And it’s so much fun!
You also get to see the real Bali, which is truly amazing. You meet Balinese people that are far away from touristic places and that are really authentik. They are the nicest!
Another really good point is that Agus is french so I can do the trek either in french or english. And during the entire day, he will tell you all about Balinese culture and stories, which makes it even more interesting.
Enough talking, have a look at the pictures!

Sessun, a french brand I deeply love since I first came across it, many years ago, just launched their first bridal collection.
The collection really represents the spirit and the style of the brand. It’s really french, simple, with cute details. It has that androgynous vibe that I love.
The really good news is that it’s really affordable as well since the prices go from 120€ to 350€.
Available as from march 25th, in Brussels in their flagship store 59, Rue Marché au Charbon (1000 Bruxelles)
Oh, and by the way, the collection is called « OUI », I just love it!
I think I could wear any of these outfit for my wedding… Or for any other days!
Today I keep on going with Nusa Lembongan, and will introduce Nusa Ceningan, which is an even smaller island just next to it. Both islands are related by a bridge, a small bridge…
The bridge from Lembongan to Ceningan
The Pirate Beach Club, one of the prettiest and coolest place to check out in Nusa Ceningan
While in Lembongan I also had the chance to go swim with manta ray
It was super impressive but really fun. Sadly I don’t have any pictures… But they were a bunch of them, swiming right by me! A really great memory
On my little « private » beach where was my bungalow… I miss it!

Another end of day at The Deck…
With Chantal Thomas!
I’ve always loved her campaigns and photo shoots, but maybe this one even more than the others.
It always feels like the girls in the pictures are having some kind of chic afternoon tea (but actually drinking vodka), while being half naked.
Can I go to one of those tea parties?
I WANT THIS (surprising much?)
