So I’ve been wanting to do something with my hair for a while. I wanted change. I’ve mentionned it to you a few times but never know exactly what to do. I’ve been blond for many years now, and it seemes like there was not a lot of options. Darker hair don’t look as good, it kind of saddens my face. Other colors were not really an option so far. I just kept on doing my highlights.
A different cut wasn’t an option either since I like my hair long. Shorter hair don’t really fit the shape of my face. Bangs don’t really work out with curly hair. And then again, I was stuck.
Since it definitely wasn’t a major problem in my life, I just let things go, and left my hair the way they were.
Then, a few weeks back, the manager of the new Toni&Guy (sablon) contacted me. We met up, and it was really great to see who was being the Toni&Guy window. You could expect crazy londonien with blue hair. But no! Here we’re just talking to a hairdresser, who’s just
a little a lot more up to date about what’s going on out there.
Since I had a really good first impression, I decided to go further with them and make an appointment.
It was last wednesday. We first talked about what I liked, what I wanted, what I was eventually afraid of. I had a long talk with Andy, who’s the colorist, and who’s a pure genius (and cute, and adorable, and funny, and much more). I told him I didn’t want to go darker, so we then decided to go A LOT lighter. Just like Marilyn.
The change is big but I love the contrast of my blond hair with my eyerbrows. And I just love it when my hair are blond, it just lights up my face.
Now a few pictures of the different steps
At the end we had also agreed on doing an hairdo since I wasn’t cutting my hair. We got inspired by what was being done at the London Fashion Week a few days before. I really liked what they did with my hair, it looked really chic yet really up to date and trendy.
Here is how my hair look now
What do you think of it?
Big big thanks again to the Toni&Guy team, and especially to Andy and Badra, for doing something so cool to my hair, I absolutely LOVE IT! <3

What’s best than starting the week with an outfit post, right?
Here is what I wore on friday, very simple, very casual, and comfy. Friday marks the first day of my weekend, which means my working days. And on these days I usually am very relaxed, chill and casual.
Here is a typical weekend outfit
Notice something new? My hair you say? Well, wait until tomorrow to know more about it

I’ve been wanting to write something about the show Girls for a while now.
Every episode I watch makes me think about myself, my life, my situation, my relationships, all and all, everything.
This is a show you can actually relate to. When most of the shows you watch makes you dream, or transport you in an imaginary world. With Girls though, it’s more of the everyday life we all live, we all the shitty parts.
They are or about to be 25, have no idea on which direction to go, completely lost. They’re also lost in their love stories. It’s just a big mess. And, at least on a personnal basis (and as sad as it seems to say) I so fucking relate to that. The only big advantage they have is New York City.
But honestly, who can relate to, I don’t know, Carrie Bradshaw? Blair Waldorf? Zoe Hart? Amanda Clarke?
I surely can’t!
So today I wanted to recap some Girls fun facts, some funny or really true quotes, and all in all, why I love Girls so much
For Anna’s outfits choices. Sometimes pretty cool, sometimes sooo horribly bad. Which makes it so GOOD
Definitely love how Hannah is confident in herself, and how she wears such pieces as this crop top, I would never dare to wear.

(in case you haven’t noticed, she does not weat a bra underneath her top)
When Hannah walks around a small town, for almost an entire afternoon, only wearing her bikinis
To watch the life of the weirdest fictional human being, Adam
For the kind of thing they say, that I tell myself everyday
To watch Jessa living on another planet
« Okay, so you look, like, totally gorgeous, as always. Umm. And, like, very current. I’m just wondering if it’s maybe, like, a little bit threatening… for babysitting.
I can see your belly button. »
And at the end of the day, enjoying the story of a group of girlfriends who love each other, hate other, scream, laugh, dance, party, drink, get married, get crazy…. and you kinda feel like you’re a part of it
Last week I’ve been to the event for the release of the capsule collection between Eleonora Carisi and Zalando.
I’ve known Eleonora for many years for her amazing outfit, and strong presence on the streetstyle blogs. When I heard she had made a capsule collection for Zalando, I was just eager to discover the final result.
I have to say I’m really pleased with the result. It really represents her, in the shapes and in the print. It is fun, joyful, colorful, trendy,… And it definitely fits my aesthetics as well.
The event itself took place in Antwerp, and started at non other that 9AM. Coming all the way from Brussels, let me tell you it was an early wake up call, and it definitely shows on my face. Though, it was really fun to do a breakfast event, and the food was just plane deliciousness. Thank you nomad for having us!

…World of the Fashion Weeks.
As usual, the Fashion Week madness is happening with its wave of street style photos. As usual, I love to have a look at them, pick my favourite looks and get inspired. Here we go
Have a great weekend loves!
Hey guys! What’s up?
I have to say, I think I NEVER dressed so lightly during winter. I’m not going to complain though, I don’t really like to dress for cold weather. I’m not so good with tights, layers, etc…
Today I’m wearing a little colors, which feels great. I’ve been wearing a lot of black lately because that’s what inspired me even though I find it a little depressing… But since a few days, the sun has made a come back, and the days are longer… It all helps to get my mood up, and then here we are with more colorful outfits!
Today I’m going comfy but classical with some funky touches such as my earrings, my nailpolish and my shoes
Wearing: ZARA coat & shoes – ABBIE&ROSE boyfriend shirt – ESSENTIEL jumper – CITIZENS OF HUMANITY jeans – NEW LOOK earrings – URBAN OUTFITTERS nailpolish
Have a wonderful wednesday! xx
Today I’m posting something I should have posted like 10 years ago. Or more like 3 months.
Anyway, it’s about an experience I had with Turkish Airlines, on a cold wednesday night. That evening I was transported to Istanbul, and then right back to Brussels (leaving the Cospaia where the event was taking place, we had what I believe was our only slow flakes of the season).
Turkish Airlines is known for serving the best food, over any other airlines IN THE WORLD. Yes, that sounds exciting, right? When you think of what you often get in airplaines (I mean crap).
Now, I will stop with the talking, and let the pictures speak for themselves
See how many forks and knives I have? Right there, I was SOLD!
These fake candle lights make the experience even more magical.
Selection of Turkish Mezze
Traditional lentils soup
Wrapped Sea Bass
Rosted tomatoes Rigatoni with parmesan
Spring Veal with Eggplant Caviar
The best desserts from Turkisk Do&Co
Now what’s my take on it you ask? I’ll tell you 1 thing: it is true what they say! It is one of the best meal I’ve ever had, and from far, the best airline food EVER! (I even adored the veal, even though I’m not such a big fan of meat…)
I know you have one last question, and here’s your answer: I did eat it all!
Thanks again Turkish Airlines for such a great experience, and I can’t wait to travel with you to be able to taste that again.
I wasn’t able to take lots of outfit photos lately, but I took a few of my daily life so that’s what today’s all about.
In other words: an overload of selfies, food and parties (Is that what my life is really all about!?)
Meet my colleagues
Ready for work!
