Dilemma


Last week I saw a picture of Olivia Wilde with bangs. 
I used to have bangs as well but then I got tired of them and I let them grow out.  But every time I see a nice picture of someone with bangs, I start to doubt. 
Did I make the right decision, do I want to cut my bangs again, …ah there comes the dilemma!
Now I always turn to my husband and friends for advice on these matters but I know that when something has crossed my mind, I can’t get it out of my head.  Normally it then takes a few days, sometimes weeks, of me harassing them (especially my husband) with questions about what I should do. 
It drives Thomas absolutely insane.
Luckily for me and him, this time I took the decision in a heartbeat.





Let me know what you think!

Pleated skirt
















Outfit: Skirt: H&M / Jacket: Zara / Shirt: Esprit / Boots: Miss Sixty / Bag: Nathan

If there is one item in my closet I absolutely like, it’s my pleated skirt.
I feel so feminine every time I wear it.  I got mine at H&M, it’s from the summer collection, but I know I will be wearing it in winter as well with tights and high heels.
This time I decided to add my leather jacket, a checked shirt and knee high boots all in the blue/brown combination.  One of the most beautiful colour combinations for clothes, in my opinion. 
What do you think?

So glad it's finally weekend!  I have so many things I wanna do in a weekend that it will probably be over before I know it, but for now I am just going to enjoy it.
Here's a little sneak peak of where I am going on Saturday evening.  I am so excited!
Can you guess?



Hope you will have a freaking nice weekend as well!

These boots are made for walking…


The last couple of days have been crazy busy at work so I did not have a lot of time to blog.
But I still wanted to show you what I bought last weekend when we were in Knokke.
Can you guess what is in the bag?










These are my new boots I got at the New Paris Londres store.
I am so happy that I finally found brown short boots.  They are so perfect.
I especially like the special heel and the fact that they are really comfortable.
I can wear them with skinny jeans, underneath flared jeans, with a skirt, … so many options.
Just what I needed, or at least that is what I tell myself because you know:

“Every once in awhile, a girl has to indulge herself”

Have a great Friday!

Just the perfect Sunday!

Shades of brown














Jacket, Pants & Shoes: Zara / Scarf: H&M / Blouse: Only / Bag: Nathan


I am really into brown and dark neutral colours at the moment.  I think they look really classy and stylish.  
I bought this leather jacket at Zara this weekend and I love it so much I have been wearing it non stop.  It has the perfect colour and the perfect fit.  Leather jackets have always been my thing and the search for the perfect brown jacket has been going on for years.  So I am really happy I stumbled on to this beauty. 
Let me know what you think

Just one more day and …it’s weekend!

Have a nice Thursday

Brunette







I am back to being a brunette! 
This weekend I decided that is was time to give up the blonde hair and change back to my natural colour.  I am so happy I took that decision.
I have been a blonde since June and although everybody said it looked nice, and it did, it wasn’t really my thing. Also my hair got really damaged from the bleaching and I was afraid I would make it even worse by staying blonde. 
So I dyed my hair again to what is almost my natural colour.

I used the L’Oreal Sublime Mousse in the shade 60 which is pure light brown.

This is the first time I used this product and I am really satisfied.
For those who know me, you will know that I have dyed my hair about a million times and I have used almost every product there is.  But this is definitely one of my favourites.  It is so easy to use, it does not drip and the colour is really amazing.  And I only needed one bottle when normally I need two.

So let me know what you think of my new hair and don’t forget:

Happy Wednesday

Monthly favourites

Today I want to talk about my monthly favourites.
Since I just started blogging I cannot really say that these were my favourite products of September only because I have been using them for a couple of months now. 
But I want to include this topic every month so here we go.

The first product I want to talk about is the Gliss Kur Hair Repair Oil Nutritive by Schwarzkopf. 


I have been loving this product so much.  My hair is really thick and tends to be dry so this is just perfect for me.  You just spray it on to your damp hair after it has been washed and then you style it as usual. This product makes sure that your hair does not tangle, that is stays soft and that you get almost no frizz.  Sometimes I even use it on dry hair just to make it softer.


The second product is the Advanced Night Repair by Estee Lauder.


I have been using this for 8 months now and I can really see the difference on my skin.  Normally I am not a fan of night care products but this is really good and works wonders.  I try to use it every evening, and I really should, because when I do my skin looks so much better in the morning.

My third favourite is the shimmer cubes eye shadow palette 21 by the Body Shop.


In this palette you get 4 shimmery eye shadows: velvet pink, soft pink, pearly white and stardust grey. They are really pigmented so you don’t need to use a lot of them and they don’t fade or crease during the day.  And the colours are so pretty. The pearly white is perfect for highlighting the brow bone to give you a wide awake look.  The soft pink and velvet pink are such pretty and soft pink colours to use on the eye lid and in the crease. To finish to look, I use the stardust grey in the outer v of my eye to give it more definition.

And then the last but not the least favourite product is a perfume, D&G Anthology L’ImpĂ©ratrice 3 by Dolce & Gabbana.


This has been my favourite perfume throughout the whole summer and I am still using it now. 
It is advertised by Naomi Campbell and features aromas of watermelon, kiwi, pink cyclamen and musk.  I just love it!

So these were my monthly favourites, I hope you like them and just let me know what you think.
