I’m finally back with the next, and last step from my Bali trip: Canggu (pronounced « tchangou »).
I picture Canggu more like an area than a village, because even there’s a small village, everything else is spreaded. It’s very close to Seminyak, about a 15min motorbike drive.
I ended up there because the friends I met at the beginning of my trip lived around there, and it sounded more quiet than Seminyak. I quickly found a guesthouse that looked pretty cool… and I met two germans coming back from Nusa Lembongan as well, and they were going to that place so… I gave it a go! And dammn what a good decision!
The Serenity Eco Guest House is exactly what I needed. Calm, a great location (5min walk from the beach), it has Yoga, Meditation, a restaurant that serves fresh, healthy and alkalin food. It’s not over expensive, rooms are cute and clean. And last but not least… it has a pool!
My second hotspot for Canggu is the Watercress cafe.
It’s actually located in between Canggu and Seminyak. It’s a little cafe that serves delicious and healthy food, a bunch of different salads and yummy fresh juices. Everything looks really incredible.
The place is also pretty cool, a part of the café is actually open.
The street where it’s located is also pretty cool, there’s a bunch of cool restaurant and shops!
Next stop is the Old Man’s bar, facing the beach.
There’s probably way too many Australian to my taste (even though it’s really enjoyable to look at), but the view and the atmosphere is pretty cool, lay low. You’re facing the sea, and the surfers hitting the waves. At sunset it gives one of the most amazing view.
Since I have a lot more to show you, it’s coming in my next post!
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!
