A few month ago I received a Bose SoundLink Color to try out. It’s a small speaker that you have to recharge and that you can than take anywhere. I took it mostly everywhere in my apartment, never a chance to take it outside, but it’s definitely an option!
Anyway it took me a while to use it because all of my music is all in my iPod… and you need bluetooth to put music on (I think it’s possible with an iPod if you buy an extra cable). None of my music is on my phone so I felt stuck. Until the day a friend of mine told me just to use Spotify and play it on the Bose SoundLink Color. The perfect idea! (I guess I’m too old school sometimes to think about this kind of things)
Anyway, since then, I never stop using it around my apartment, you’ll see it in the following pictures. It also give you the chance to have a sneak peek at my lovely apartment that I love more and more.
This little speaker has been especially useful in the bathroom while I take my shower, in the kitchen when I cook around in my living room when I clean my apartment. I have to mention, even it’s seems obvious to me (since it’s Bose and to me they make the best products EVER) the quality of the sound is really amazing – and can go really loud (sorry dear neighbors haha).

The SoundLink Color exist in different shades but I definitely think this one looks really good with the colors of my little cocoon.
If you follow my instagram you may have seen that I went to Barcelona last week, for two days.
I did the trip with a bunch of crazy party people from Brussels, to discover the famous Nasty Mondays parties of Barcelona. The concept is originally from there but has travel in many different places around the globe, before making a stop in Brussels in may.
It has a real concept that I’ve never seen before in Brussels. It’s all about Rock’n'Roll and crazy attitude. I’ve never been the biggest fan of Rock’n'Roll musique, but this parties take the rock to another level. People go crazy and the atmosphere in the club is really insane. Part of it definitely thanks to both organisator and DJ’s Mad Max, and Sören.
I can’t wait to see what it will be like in Brussels, but I can tell you I’m already super excited. The party will be at Bloody Louis, on may 13th. Mad Max and Sören took their tattoos, leather jackets and vinyl all the way from Barcelona, and Ozzy Mozzy will do a come back from hell just for a night. Excited much?

And now, some show off photos from my two days in Barca!
I’m so sorry it’s been forever! I just really wanted to let you know that I do not forget about the blog, but the past weeks have been crazy!
While still looking for a job, I’ve been taking extras here and there (a girl’s got to eat, ya know), and somehow, with events popping every other day, and a very big lack of sleep (or an health issue, don’t know yet) whenever I have some free time I just spend it sleeping. I guess it explains why I haven’t had a second to myself to either take an outfit picture OR actually take the time to write a little something.
With a 5 minutes window in my crazy schedule, I finally decided to do so. Since I haven’t shown you any outfits in like, forever, here are a few pictures taken lately, at parties, of by myself!

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!
Selfie with Agus Tikus in front of the waterfall!

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!
Sunset on the cliff in Ceningan
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?)

We enter now what became one of my best memories from my month in Bali: Nusa Lembongan, or how I like to call it « Paradise Nusa Lembongan ».
It’s very tiny island located next to Bali, only 30min by speed boat. Just the view you get arriving on the island is already beautiful
The Island is a lot more preserved and isolated from the crazy tourism of Bali. I was advised to go to LOA Beach, on the north of the island. So was so nicely welcomed by the adorable Adis and his wife. They were the most perfect host I’ve had during my entire stay in Bali. I had booked 2 nights, but directly booked a third one the first day I got there. The place was so magical.
I had my own little bungalow ON THE BEACH. What’s not to love about this?
My first two days I mostly spent time on the beach or driving around the Island, have a drink by sunset at « The Deck » or walking around the center Nusa Lembongan.
There will be a second post about Nusa Lembongan, I just have too many photos… In which I’ll also introduce to you Nusa Ceningan!
Thanks again to Adis and Seb without whom those days wouldn’t have happened or wouldn’t have been the same…. It was amazing!
Today I’m sharing with you the look I wore last weekend on saturday to hang around in Sablon, Brussels.
I felt inspired to dress up (even though it was just a random saturday), and I put on my Tibi dress I love sooo deeply. For it not to be too dressy or girly, I wore flat men looking shoes and socks. I love the final look, what do you think?
Wearing: TIBI dress – SANDRO sweater – ZARA coat – MONKI hat - WEEJUNS GH BASS & CO loafers – clutch from Bali
