Interior happiness with a touch of design..

Hi all,

Recently I moved in to my new appartement!

Well, it was more camping than living in the beginnning as I was still painting and rearranging everything. I’m a bit of a perfectionist (understatement…) and I wanted to start from scratch! So everything gone, new paint, new floors, new everything. Week in week out my days consisted of working and more working at home.. But now the fun part: The interior :)! New furniture, decorations, etc etc.

Since a couple of days it was the first time my new place started to feel like home. Everything is getting a (new) place, old stuff, new stuff.. The images in my head regarding to what I wanted in my home are starting to fall in place. Okay there are still a lot of things that has to be done. Rearrange my lamps for example, right now I only have one lamp above of the dinnertable, the second one is still in the box. And I’m on the look out for curtains in the living room (curtains are really underrated, now I don’t have them I really miss them!) and my BF and I have to search for a big sideboard. So we can unpack all the tableware etc.

Still a lot to do!
But I’m pretty happy right now when all my stuff is coming together and I see it is just as I imagined :)! Love it when a plan comes together <3!

Enough words! Pictures or it didn't happen as my friend says!

A bit dark this one.. And I’m still looking for a nice flowerpot! Any suggestions?

What do you think?

Cozy sweaters & Knitwear.. <3 Autumn!

Autumn, its my most wonderful season of the year!

I love love love autumn.. I love the cozyness (is that a word?), the changing colours of nature, the feeling of cocooning in your fave knitwear on the couch with a large cup of tea and my favorite girly series on Netflix (New Girl, PLL, Breaking Bad etc etc)… Scented candles in the windowsill. Can you paint the picture?

Right now I can finally relax in my new appartement. The last weeks I was living in a rush! My days and weeks consisted of work, painting, scraping, cleaning and lifting very heavy stuff! So glad I’ve got to the decorating part now. Especially when it is cold and rainy outside I love to stay inside.

Oh and one of the best parts of fall… FALL FASHION! Summer is the dullest fashion season if you ask me.. Fall = cute sweaters, great boots, hats, scarves, layering with my clothes, jackets <3!

What is your favorite season? Do you love fall as much as I do?

Sequin summer


 

I love love love sequins.. But it took some time to express my love.
Bought this top 2 years ago at Forever 21 in Antwerpen. And there it was, in the summer clothes boxes at the attic. The bohemian, see through sequin top, with the cards still on (!!). Perfect festival outfit, so I wanted to wear it at Lakedance festival but when I wanted to go it was too cold for denim shorts and a sequin cropped top. So I changed, but damn I regreted it instantly. When I walked to the entrance the sun came through and it was so HOT! But okay, no worries, I will wear you next time :). So for now, a little selfie with my baby, and see you again soon…Real soon…

Spring is in the air

Spring, I love you.

Everything becomes more beautiful, everything is in bloom, birds are singing, getting up when the sun shines (well.. almost) and coming home when it still isn’t dark, boatcamping in the woods.. And although spring isn’t officially here yet, I’m just as confused as the singing birds and newly grown daffodils and crocuses. Spring is in the air! And how lovely was this weekend! Enjoyed the dunes with my bestie and little Yannick, and a delightful wine on a crowded terrace.. But as we would never be able to get a table there, the back-up plan was a fine visit with my friend Nadia (yes, namesake and friend) in the garden. Doing fine :)!

Buenos dias from Spain!

Het is even stil, maar met een goede reden! Ik ben een weekje de kou ontvlucht naar Spanje.. Toch een voordeel als je tante geƫmigreerd is!
Vanmiddag een shopdag in Murcia, met een geweldige El Corte Ingles (lees ze hebben Nars….) en de Zara is hier way cheaper! Een stad naar mijn hart!

En voor nu, deze prachtige zonsondergang gisteren in La Isla Plana..
Tot volgende week!

Liefs x

Sweet sweet Spain

Al bijna een maand zijn we weer terug van onze short break Spanje en nu pas heb ik de tijd om voor de foto te gaan zitten!
Spanje was heerlijk..Ik heb er familie wonen en het geluk dat ik daar welkom ben om te logeren, dus ben ik er regelmatig te vinden. Zo waren we er afgelopen april voor 8 dagen en afgelopen maand voor 15 dagen. Ik mag niet klagen! En zeker niet als ik zeg dat de grote vakantie voor ons er nog aankomt, namelijk 3 weken Thailand in december! Wat een vooruitzicht is dat?! Maar voor nu mag ik lekker zwijmelen bij de foto’s en terugdenken aan onze fijne vakantie in Mazarron. Een foto album maken brengt me weer even terug naar de Spaanse zon en strand, zwijmel….

Voor nu maar even 1 snelle foto, ik zal er meer plaatsen als ik alle foto’s heb doorgenomen (lees 1 spiegelreflex camera mee, en 2 compacte!)… Dat duurt nog wel even.. Voor nu een hele fijne dag nog! Liefs x
