New from head to toe

Ghent is such a beautiful city! I love strolling around, especially in September when everything feels extra festive with all the lights and the Christmas market. For our Saturday out with my boyfriend I wore new things from head to toe. Curious which? :D

Essence Advents Calendar (part 2)

Last week you could read about the first six presents from my Essence's advents calendar. This week's polishes were just as pretty!

First one is a brownish colour with a nice shimmering. Besides that, the quote is SO totally me! :D

What to give your boyf for Christmas?!

Less than a month and it's Christmas! :D Getting presents is always fun, but what to give your boyfriend? I noticed I wasn't the only one wondering so here are some ideas.

A watch
Ever since I bought my first watch, I can't live without it around my wrist any more! You don't have to take your phone when you're trying to catch your train to check if you're going to make it. Besides that, they are an awesome outfit upgrader! Yep, I love my watches. This Fossil watch is one I would definitely buy my boyfriend.

Dreams: Road trip!

Update on one of my dreams! Remember when I told you about my dreams for 2015 how I wanted to make a road trip? In September I finally made one! :D We spent a week in France, where we stayed three days in Arles and four days in the Ardèche region. Being able to drive around in a car made our trip so much easier!
At the Autoroute du Soleil! :D

Double triangles

Last week I showed Ghent around to an Austrian friend of mine (whom I met while I was in Brazil, super international and everything). While we were walking towards our next sightseeing spot we had to enter some shops to warm up again because it was so incredibly cold. I wasn't planning on buying anything but in the end I bought four pairs of earrings.. Oops! This is the fourth pair I bought that day:

The last three months have been crazy busy! In between writing a thesis and going on holidays I caught up with my friends and had to work. Right now I'm looking for a job, but I'm finally feeling like getting back in my blog writing rhythm! But first I'll show you my latest instagram posts.

Gotta love clothing that reminds you of something. I bought this ruffled top during a holiday in Croatia two years ago. After a day at the Krka waterfalls, where we could swim in a waterfall, we went to a shopping mall we had noticed when we left Zadar in the morning. Every time I wear this top, I remember that day and that holiday, which never fails to make me happy. Just one of the reasons I love wearing this top.

Travels: Leuven loving

This weekend I went to Leuven with the boyfriend. We actually had some kind of plan to visit Paris, but because of the boyf's exams we didn't have that much time to plan everything by last weekend, so instead we visited a Belgian city. Even though I had studied for a year in that city, I hadn't really visited the touristic sites so we changed that! I had planned several things to do on Saturday and both my boyfriend and I loved what we had done!

Life lately

Let's have a recap of my busy Summer. I've spent a lot of time on my Master's thesis, which I've finished two weeks ago. It was an awful lot of work, but I've finished it and now I just hope I'll pass. Then I've had two extremely busy weeks filled with friends and doing nothing because I finally had holidays! Next week won't be as lazy as this week because I'll start looking for a job, work at my dad's and write some blog posts again. In the weekend my boyfriend and I will spend the weekend at Leuven, where I studied this year. Yep looking forward to that! :D

And that's how I've spent my last two months. I'm looking forward to the rest of my holidays, even though my most relaxed weeks are already behind me. Enjoy your Sunday!

Newly striped

After wearing my nails bare or painted with a single colour for a few months now, I've done some small nail arting again! :D I used my newly bought Rimmel polishes to create a fun but simple design.

Swing by

Last week I've had a super fun BBQ with some friends. We've had a lot of fun, the food was delicious, the donuts were cute and there was a swing in the garden. :D

Summer definitely is my favorite season. I just love the long days, staying out late, chatting the evenings away with friends … This week the weather is totally not belgian with temperatures around 30°C! It also stays warm during the evening, so we can just stay outside the whole evening. :D On evenings like this I love playing Kubb, especially when I'm the winner! (;

Garden party

On Saturday I had a very fun garden party with some friends. It stayed warm up till late so we sat outside chatting for quite a while. It had been a while since I’d seen some of my friends, so I was really happy to see them again! :D

Yes, another Instadiary! :D The last month was a hectic one with school and thesis and exams and everything, but I managed to take some Insta-pics in between. Enjoy!

Food! Of course there was food! Here I'd made a salad with tomatoes and avocado. - One of the first sunny Spring days in Belgium. Since then the weather has been good; last week temperatures rose over 30 degrees Celsius! Yay! :D

OOTD: Celebration Time!

Yesterday my boyf and I were together for 6 years, which called for a celebration! We went to an Italian restaurant right across my former university faculty and for the occasion I wore a dress I'd bought for my cousin's marriage last summer.Since then it feels like a festive dress to me, so it was perfect for last night! :D

Life Lately

It's been very busy weeks since my latest Life Lately post. The past four months I've had my internship to work for, my internship report and thesis to write (both due this Friday!) and tasks for classes to make. It's been crazy! Writing blog posts wasn't exactly on top of my to do-list because of this and unfortunately that busy schedule won't get less busy until halfway June. BUT the good news is: less than a month and I'll be less busy, yay! :D Gotta keep positive in these hard, lonely, locked-up-in-my-room times.

For now you can follow me on my Instagram page, where you can see what I'm doing when I'm not writing my thesis or my internship report, besides an occasional Ryan Gosling meme. (;

NOTD: American Flag nails!

Last week I had a goodbye party for a friend who is going to live in the US. Theme was blue, red and white, so I decided to translate that on my nails too. :D It took me some time to finish these because I did them in my thesis writing breaks, but this nail art is no hard at all. If you have striping tape, that is.

Instadiary #1

The last 10 days I've been posting a LOT on Instagram. Let's have a look what I've been up to lately. :D

It all started when I had a day off from writing my thesis and I decided to FINALLY make my travel boxes. I've been collecting all sorts of stuff from my travels: coins (too little to return them to the bank so I'll keep them for next time), restaurant receipts (so I can tell others where to go when they go there), metro tickets (just the memory), etc. Take a video box, put a map of the city/country where you went on the outside, put everything else on the inside ET VOILA, your very own travel box! :D

Guess my age!

Today I learned about Microsoft's new program How Old Do I Look? and tbh it's hilarious! It's a face detecting program where you have to upload your picture and then they'll predict your age and gender. I think the program still needs some adjustments, let me show you by means of some test pics of mine. (;

I was wearing my suuuuper fluffy Bershka cardigan. H&M jeans and River Woods boots. The day before this outfit, on Sunday, I had to wait for the train for 15min and I was so incredibly cold I decided to wear this fluffy cardigan the next day. I haven't regret it at all! This cardigan definitely beat 5 degrees Celsius!

NOTD: Beach House and Nails

Whoow I'm back! Took me quite a while to post anything again. Combining an internship with writing a thesis is a hell of a combination! But now I've got time to paint my nails again (I left them bare most of my internship... The horror!), I'm not leaving them in one colour! I used a super cute Ciaté mini nail polish from their Beach House collection and a Barry M Nail Art Pen. That's it!

OOTD: Shirt-Jeans-New Shoes Combo

Finally a real OOTD again! I'll keep posting my internship outfits on my Instagram @clothes_and_dreams, but whenever I can I'll post a 'real' OOTD too. This weekend, in between two rain showers and a small hailstorm we could take some pics of my outfit. This is actually also a kind of internship outfit because I wore this outfit on Friday at my internship.

Outfit #1
I wore a Zara pullover, which is two or three years old. It's a nice beige colour, perfect with a white shirt or top underneath. I paired it with my Levi's jeans, which I've been wearing a lot lately. I've had this jeans for only half a year now, but I wear it at least once every week! The boots are from River Woods, as seen in my These boots are made for walking shoplog.

Life Lately

Hi there!
Missed me?

I haven't been blogging decently for over a month now and I feel terrible about it!

Exams made me stay inside for a month, except when I had an exam or had to get food.
Internship (which I am loving at this moment!) makes me get up at 7am, go outside and get back home at 7.30pm.
School makes me work on internship blog posts or thesis when I get home from my internship and during the weekend. Well, school is actually the reason for my first two reasons too, but you get what I mean (;

So... I've figured out that I would show my outfits on Instagram and then make a weekly update on it here. I will also try to paint my nails again, as soon as I get some quick drying top coat. I.e. this weekend, hopefully (;

I'll keep you posted!

Nail care Winter protection

I believe your nails are an important part of your image. Clean, polished nails leave a better impression than nails with dirt underneath them, right? That's why I wanted nail art to be part of my blog too: I believe they can make an outfit help to stand out even more or simply stand out because of the nail art. That's why I treat my nails the best I can. In Winter this is even more important because the cold makes me put on the central heating, which leaves the air in my room drier and thus makes my nails need more hydration. Let's have a look at which products I then use!

Study Break Collages

Sorry for my lack of posting, but because of the exams I don't go shopping, not even online, nor do I have time to take outfit pics. It's been a busy semester and the exams reflect that perfectly. My favourite passtime during the exams is making collages of what I would wear if I would go outside. This is an example of how that would look like:

Dreaming again...

Happy New Year everyone! A new year calls for new resolutions. Last year I had good intentions, but I couldn't keep up with them. This year I'm more motivated to fulfil these dreams, so let's hope I'll fulfil them by the end of 2015!
