From Brussels to Istanbul, and back

Hey guys!

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

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.

Garcia kicking F/W 2014

Hey guys!

What’s up with ya’ll??? Feeling the cold much? I can barely stand outside for a few minutes, that my hands start to freeze and are aboud to fall off (nop, I am not exagerating!)

I’ve talked to you about Garcia Jeans and my trip to Amsterdam (here and here), but I wasn’t able to show you the actual reason of my travel: the F/W 2014 collection. Which is awesome. I love it.

Surprisingly enough, I LOVED the men’s collection. To be completely honest, I usually don’t pay much attention to the men’s collection, even if I always have a quick look at it. But this time, the models made it IMPOSSIBLE not to look at them. They were like greek gods coming out of nowhere! On the last pictures with the male models, you should be able to spot my super happy face, on the left of the runway.

Anyway, back to business. I found the men’s collection super interesting with their layering. The women’s was feminine but not too much, with the right amount of edge to it. My favorite pieces was probably the outerwear, the blazers, and their jeans of course.

I have to say also that the styling was just perfect! Like better than perfect. And that hairstyle, seriously, can I have the same one? Thanks

Amsterdam part 2

Hey guys!

Today I want to share with you some snapshots from Amsterdam. As I told you yesterday, I had a lot of fun. Here’s the recap of 2 days in pictures

After some (a lot) of walking around, I made a little stop at « La Place ». It’s pretty awesome! They have lots of fresh produce, all the different kind of food you dream of, big, delicious and fresh smoothies, and all of that for a very unexpensive price. Plus, they have wifi!

Outfit for the fashion show & the party: Forever21 top, H&M skirt, Primark jacket, Zara shoes

The place where the event took place was decorated like a Italian fresh market. It looked awesome and tasted great!

Amsterdam

Hey guys!

I found internet at the café on the corner of my street YAY! Life without internet is SO hard, but at the same time, it makes me unpack my boxes a lot quicker!

The apartment is slowly (like very slowly) starting to look like something, it’s exciting. Though, I’m still missing half of my furnitures, but hey, at this point, any progress makes me so happy! I’m excited like a kiddo! Did you also feel that way when you moved into your first own place for the first time? Or am I just plain crazy?

Anyway, today I’m sharing with you the outfit I wore last friday in Amsterdam. I didn’t get to tell you much about it yet, but it was SO MUCH FUN! The evening, the show, the people, the party,… just plain perfection, but I’ll tell you more about it later.

On friday, even though I was kind of hangover and didn’t have much sleep, I spent the day with Dorothydancing walking around the city. It was all about enjoying the nice weather and of course do some shopping. I ended up buying mostly decoration stuff for my apartment (which never happened before), but when you’re in Amsterdam, and you find yourself at H&M Home, you want to buy EVERYTHING!

Back to the outfit: All about practicality and easy going for a day of walking and undressing/dressing up. Thankfully the weather was pretty good and not too cold.

Wearing my PJ’s to dinner

Hey guys!

As I promised you yesterday, here is the outfit I wore to dinner last wednesday night in London.

Like I told you yesterday, it’s quite unexpected from me but I still like the look. It definitly looks (and felt) like I was wearing my silky pijamas, but I like that style.

I didn’t go crazy with my jewelries or make up, I wanted to stay minimal (for once).

London Calling

How freaking obvious is that title!?

Hey guys!
What’s up? Did you have a good weekend?

As you probably know, I went to London last wednesday, until thursday, for 24hours of fun. And for Primark. But it was SO MUCH FUN.

First of all, we were a great bunch of people, some that I knew, some that I didn’t, but somehow the magic happened between all of us.
Second of all: the organisation was super great (big big thanks to Bérénice and Primark)
Third of all: what could go wrong when you’re in AWESOME LONDON?
And last but not least: It’s Primark we’re talking about, of course the trip is so DAMN COOL

On the night we arrived, after dropping our bags in the more than awesome Great Nothern Hotel (just accross the streat from St Pancras – smart move Primark, SMART MOVE) we went for dinner at Oscar.

Just by putting Malin+Goetz products, you can tell the GNH has great taste

Oscar is a really nice and chic restaurant located in Charlotte street. What I will definitly remember of it is how nice the staff was, how freaking good the food was… and yes, how amazing their cocktail menu – and their cocktails – were.

Potato pancakes, wild mushrooms, gorgonzola and rucola

And more cocktails

It was a really fun night getting to know everyone. What did I wear you’re wondering? Well, I had a really hard time packing for London. I hate dressing up for winter. And I didn’t have much inspiration. Then an idea popped into my head. It felt right, even though it’s not the kind of outfit I usually wear. It was all about black and white… but you’ll have to wait until tomorrow to discover the complete outfit!

We headed back to the hotel for a great night of sleep, in one of the most exquisite bed I had the chance to sleep in, in my entire life. Thursday morning, late wake up thanks to smart organisation, I could take my time in the morning before heading for breakfast. Breakfast was served in a beautiful room, and was oh soo yummy.

Next step was going to the Primark Press Days, the actual purpose of this trip (nop, it wasn’t trying out most of the cocktails at Oscar’s). I was blown away by how cool was the collection, and how cheap (money wise) it is. I want to be next summer already! I’ll show you my favourite parts of the collection, later on this week.

Getting ready for summer 2014 thanks to Primark

After the excitement of seeing next summer’s collection, we headed ran to the closest Primark store to do some mean shopping. The closest shop was actually the new one, located at Tottenham Court, and it’s HUGE. I ran up and down, in between the different floors and aisle. I narrowed it down to two HUGE bags of closing and accessories, for a few pennies (alright, a little more than that). If you want I could show you what I got? You wanna??

After that, and a quickly devoured burger + obligatory onions rings at Burger King (thank god they’re right next door to Primark), Dorothée and I walked to Oxford street to have a look at River Island and Topshop. River Island was better than expected, and I found an amazing dress, which I can’t wait to wear.

And then, it was time to go already. Quick pick up of our luggages at the hotel, then headed to St Pancras.

Thank you Primark for such an amazing time, thank you Bérénice for such an amazing organisation/smile/being the funny and kind person that you are, and last but not least, thank you London for still being yourself – that’s how I love you.

Let’s meet tomorrow right here to see what I was wearing to dinner my dears!

My second day in New York was all about walking around, again, the Empire State Building, and then moving into the second hotel in the Meatpacking District.

We first started with breakfast in some café close to 5th ave

Hi guys!

Sorry for not posting for like… FOREVER!

New York City was INSANE (as usual), and when I got back to DC, I just had so much to do and so little time left… So here I am, back and (finally) ready to post again.

Today I’ll share with you my first day in New York: we walked forever (kinda obvious for NYC, especially when you’re with a first timer). We went all the way up on Fifth Ave, then walked down through Central Park, then back on the street and took Madison.

After some walking around, we headed to Times Square, which my sister was DREAMING to see. It was kind of hell on earth for me because I definitly hate touristic places (and to be more precise, during the holidays Uptown and Midtown is just awful), but when it’s your first time, it’s a must see in the city!

Then we went back to our hotel which was pretty great, the Hudson Hotel, located at Columbus Circle.

Next days will be up next week!

Have a great weekend guys!

Walk Around

Hey guys!

Today I’ll share with you some picture from my weekend.

On saturday we celebrated the 70th birthday of my american dad, it was a lot of fun (meaning lots of food and booze), and it felt really great to have my american family reunited again!

After the Zoo, it was all about the Washington Mall and the monuments, and of course the White House

American Style

Or just my style. Belgian style? Maybe.

This is what I wore on wednesday to walk around downtown DC and show my sister around the city.

American style - LFC

We went first to Cute Nails, to get my nails done (how obvious was that?). Mani-Pedi is always one of my first stop when coming to the States, it’s so nice, feels amazing and looks great. So here I am, happy face and all

American style - LFC

Next stop was my favourite shop, Mustard Seed, where I scored some great items: an insane Carmen Marc Valvo pants, a Broadway&Broome silk top, a Topshop skirt and an Ann Taylor Loft jeans (weird I know but they fit PERFECTLY). And all that for 75$, crazy uh!?

After that we went to Chinatown, and walked around then went to metro center. Here is my sister, tourist style in Chinatown
