Here we go finally with the first day of my trip in London.
I want invited to make a citytrip thanks to Neckermann, and I chose London. To me it was so obvious, London is just a city that represents me so well. I love the vibe, the people, their style, how cool they are, how fashion forward the city feels. Clearly the best option. And I was right, I discovered, or rediscovered some great places, that I just can’t wait to share with you.
To help me make this trip event better, I also had a Fujifilm XP70 camera, easy to carry around for a great result, and Bose headphones, which definitely helped make my walks around the city a lot easier. And let me tell you, I HAVE WALKED!
In the Eurostar with the awesome Bose headphones
Just arrived in London St Pancras. Wearing: Thakoon for Target tee – H&M skirt – Zara perfecto – Sam Edelman bag – Vagabond shoes – Samsonite suitcase
After dropping my luggage at my friend’s work, I went to Liberty…for the first time. Yes I know, once I’ve entered the shop, I did realise it was crazy I had never stepped a foot inside this amazing place before. Anyway, I’ve snapped some of my favourite items, here they are
I want this!
Manolo Blahnik craziness
Cute little bunnies spotted in the Home department
After an afternoon of shopping (mostly spent at Primark) I went for dinner with my friend Alice at the lovely Sketch restaurant
The awesome bathrooms from the Sketch restaurant
And they have the best marshmallows on earth!
This is it for day 1, more tomorrow!
Before sharing my complete trip in London with you, I’ll share a few shots from the Primark Press Days that took place there. It was actually a surprise, since I didn’t even know the Press Days would take place at the same time as I was there. A good surprise, let’s be honest.
I don’t know if you remember but I already had been to the Primark Press days last december, but on purpose last time.
Anyway, it was a real pleasure to be able to come again this time, so now, here are my favourite items for next season.
Now, just FYI, they had a lot more cool stuff, other than little jackets and coats. But they didn’t look as good in pictures as they did in real life. So I prefered not sharing it, and just keep the ones I thought looked the best. It just happens to be only jackets
I’m very sorry for the lack of posting, the past weeks have been pretty hectic… I’m doing my best…
Plus, this weather isn’t really inspiring to take outfit photos, sadly. (for the ones not living in Belgium, we’re living the rainiest fall weather of all times).
Anyway, today I want to share with you an outfit I wore for a party a few weeks back. This outfit must be one of my favourite not only from the past week, but probably ever. It’s so me, so pink but at the same time with these ridiculous touches (I mean, look at those nails), it just screams Lulu from head to toe. Since the theme of the birthday party was wonderland, it felt perfect. What I had maybe a hard time to admit is that I’d wear that any time, and to me it wasn’t really a costume
Part of it was made from things I’ve found in the back of my wardrobe, and the other part with some great stuff I found in London a few days before. BY THE WAY, I still have to talk you through my stay there. And it’s coming!
Wearing: TOPSHOP top – Tulle pink skirt found in a professional dance shop – STRADIVARIUS necklace – NEW LOOK shoes – ASOS hair bow – PRIMARK fake nails
Thanks again Severine for such a beautiful party, and HAPPY BDAY!
Sorry for my long absence lately, but I’ve been working like crazyyy!!! I’ve also tried to catch up on some sleep, and have had some troubles with my internet (typical).
Anyway, today I want to share a new outfit post with you, an outfit I wore last week for Dinner in the Sky (I’ll tell you more about that later).
I was wearing my brand new jumpsuit found at Primark, and to be completely honest, I’m madly in love with it.
I’m so sorry for the bad quality of pictures, but it seems that my friend Leila needs some more practicing with taking blog photos (Je t’adore anyway).
By the way, this outfit features lots of my new purchases made in London, and my new addiction, the Bose headphones!
Wearing: PRIMARK jumpsuit – PRIMARK tank top – FOREVER21 blazer – ASOS sunglasses – &OTHER STORIES purse – ZORA BY L necklace – MANOUSH shoes – BOSE headphones
I’m leaving today for London, so I thought I’d make a little recap of the essentials I’m taking with me for a 3 days citytrip.
1. Sam Edelman Bag: A good purse that I can carry around easily, and that can fit everything I need during the day.
2. Iphone: do I need to say why!?
3. Ipod: Can’t live without it, especially if I spend my day walking around the city
4. New Look Sunglasses: Always in need of sunglasses
5. Ipad mini: Perfect for travels, especially when I don’t want to bring my laptop. A must for watching movies/series in the eurostar
6. Fujifilm XP camera: Love it for it size, and I definitely must have a camera to carry around with me for this citytrip
7. Bose headphones: A small for the day, easy to have with me at all times. The bigger one will be super perfect for the eurostar
8. Women’s Secret Pijamas: It’s just super cute, especially when it’s in this little bag
9. Cute shoes BUT confortable enough to walk around all day
And all of this will be travelled in my super Samsonite suitcase that I can’t get tired of.
I know what you’re thinking: what a big suitcase for only 3 days. Then think again.
London=lots of awesome shops=shopping. Get it? GET IT?
If you have any great places to recommend, I’m just gonna say: GO AHEAD!
xxBig thanks to Neckermann without whom this trip wouldn’t have been possible
To be more correct, I should say PJ thursday, but somehow, it doesn’t sound as good.
So here’s what I wore yesterday, to enjoy a beautiful sunny day in the city. As you can see, I have finally done my hair, and it feels amazing! All blond again.
As for the outfit, something very me, very comfy, very androgynous… I love it! Plus I’m wearing my beloved Acne shorts, which are not the easiest to wear, I admit, but so amazing!
Sorry for the bad quality of the pictures, as I said, I lost the charger of my camera #lame
Wearing: ZARA shirt – ACNE shorts – VAGABOND shoes
Have an amazing weekend!
Last night I finally tried the website restolastminute.com, and I’ve been wanting to for weeks!
It’s a concept that allows you to enjoy some great restaurant, with a discount!
Every day the selection of restaurant is different, and so are the number of seats available, and the percentage of the discount.
I chose to go yesterday to la Quincaillerie. It’s just next to my place, and the restaurant always looked so impressive, I thought it was time to try it out!
It’s super easy to book, as you just go to restolastminute.com, click on « book » once you found the restaurant you want to eat at, you give a few informations, such as your name, your phone number, what time you want to come and how many you’ll be. Once that done, you’ll quickly receive a text and an email saying it’s confirmed with all the details necessary.
The menu is various, and everything looks super delicious… the choice was hard to make!
I ended up choosing a seabream ceviche, and then a lobster.
Look how pretty was my ceviche
And super yummy! So was my lobster. Sadly I was so excited to eat it, that I didn’t even get a picture of it!
I figured this one would do just fine.
We didn’t get desserts, but we did enjoy some delicious cocktails throughout the entire meal. And let me tell you, they were amazing!
At the end of the meal, we got the check with a 20% reduction on our dishes (it never works for the drinks), thanks to restolastminute.com!
Sorry for the long time without posting but as I said yesterday on my FB page, my camera ran out of battery and I can’t seem to find the charger… I hope I’ll find a solution soon!
Today I’ll introduce to you a new pop up bar, that will stay open until july 5th.
That bar is all about Gin&Tonic, and more especially Bombay Saphire Gin. The bar is even decorated in the colors of the bottle.
Even though the entire concept is made around 1 drink, you can enjoy various kinds of Gin&Tonic. They let infuse different kinds of ingredients in your drinks, which will change the taste of it.
My favourite is definitely the one with raspberry and basil (see the picture below)
Finish with the talking, now enter the universe of le Jardin Secret….
Imagin Pop Up Bar
17 Rue du Berger – Bruxelles
Open Thursday through Saturday as from 5PM
To make reservation (which you should do): 0473 72 96 92
I’ve always loved Hair Accessories, and I’m wearing them since as long as I can remember.
I actually recall my fashion début as a kid in middle school. I was doing hairdos with scarves. It was probably questionable, but it was my first try with playing with my hair.
Since then, I evolved a lot (or at least I enjoy believing it), and it can go in any direction. From headbands, to big bow, to cat ears, to scarves worn many different ways, scrunchies, and much more.
I decided to share this and to make this article today, because there is actually a quite amazing selection on Asos right now.
Limited Edition Spot Mesh Hair Veil – 6$
ASOS Pastel Flower Hair Garland – 10$
ASOS Oversized Rose Hair Clip or Corsage – 25$
Limited Edition Bow Veil Headband – 12$
ASOS XL Hair Bow – 6$
ASOS Large Velvet Hair Bow – 8$
Limited Edition XL Mesh Bow Hair Clip – 15$
ASOS Garden Veil Headpiece – 12$
Which one would you go for?
I wanted to share my last FLY outfit with you!
As you know, it’s a party when I usually dress really eccentric, and enjoy wearing crazy outfit because it feels like I’m aloud to do so.
And here comes my tutu again…
Wearing: UNKNOWN BRAND tutu – FOREVER21 tee – CONVERSE sneakers – PRIMARK necklace – URBAN OUTFITTERS denim jacket
