OOTD: I'm an apple

Now I hope you all know this variety of apples called 'Pink Lady', also known as Cripps Pink, otherwise nobody will understand why I've got these apple-ish feelings :p I've been wearing this pink (hence the title (; ) dress non-stop lately. I just love how it's warm and still gives a hint of summer due to the colours :D

Clothes & Dreams: I'm an apple outfit

This is how I went eating out with friends this evening. Some friends are in your life to stay, and even though we don't see each other that often, I feel this group will last a while. Quite sentimental, uh? :p

NOTD: arty-farty Mondriaan-ish

I've went to art classes between the ages of 8 and 18. 3 hours a week I sat there, doing the arty stuff my teacher told me to do, and I liked it a lot. At university I had a class about art history, and it was so incredibly boring. If you imagine a really boring art history class, well then, double the boringness. I didn't take that exam. Twice. The following year we had a new professor and wow, what a difference! He was AWESOME! Everything he told was so interesting and told in an enthusiastic way. I don't get the few people that didn't like his class. ¬¬
When deciding on what I was gonna paint this time, I got a little arty again. Ever heard of the Dutch artist Piet Mondriaan? Abstract paintings in a neoplasticistic style, with multiple colours and divisions in sections. I loved those paintings. And they were also the inspiration for my nail art.
I used the following equipment:

Clothes & Dreams: Arty-farty Mondriaan-ish nail polishes that I used
Ciaté, Catrice 360 Raspberry Fields Forever, Barry M's Nail art pen and Ana Hickmann's Maré

I'm missing yellow to copy his style a little more, but you can see this as a free interpretation (;

Funny moments

You know that feeling when you're so tired you have to laugh with every single stupid thing you see or hear or say? Well, after seeing this video I just couldn't stop laughing. I just couldn't! :'D

Hope you had a good laugh too (;

NOTD: Summer feelings in Autumn

Last week I finally found the nail polish I've been looking for for ages: the frosted gold nail lacquer from Gosh :D People really were puzzled how I made this, especcially when I said "It's sand....effect" :p The polish is just awesome, so weird and wonderful :D

Dreams: October so far, part 2

Since yesterday I was too tired to realize I had to give an update about my goals, I'm telling you all about it today :D

Friday, 18 October 2013

I'm absent again, sorry.

The last two days I was unable to publish anything due to an incredible amount of school work, and for the following two days I'll also be absent because I'm gone for the weekend with some friends :D
See ya later, alligator!

Hot chocolate and fluffy jumpers

I don't think I will survive this Winter... I mean: I'm cold 24/24 and it's not even freezing... That's why I'm staying at home the whole day, working for school while drinking hot chocolate and wearing fluffy jumpers. Aaaah fluffy jumpers, I love them! My favourite? This Asos model:

But I've got some other favourites too! (Including a dress... WHAOW!)

It's cold outside!

Since last week the weather has changed completely: cold, rain and wind have arrived in Belgium and I'm not liking it! Besides that, I always wear the wrong clothes. Mostly I'm dressed too warm, which is so annoying when you have to ride your bicycle on a very steep hill so I'm always sweating like craaazy when I arrive at school! But you actually never know what weather it is outside until you're outside for half an hour and by then it's too late to change. Jeans and tee are by far the most safe choice, but there's the risk that it gets too boring too. I wish I could live in a country that has only Summer, so much easier, and warmer :p
This are some collages with clothes I would wear in this cold weather if they would be in my closet.

NOTD: I've got my hands full with experiments

Yesterday I had a lot of fun with my nails: I decided to do an experiment, which turned out to be more difficult than I thought, so I decided to make some other experiments on my nails.
These are the colours I've used:

OOTD: Croatian throwback

September was a rather weird month, as I felt all kind of feelings: stress, because of the exams, joy, because of the holidays, happiness, because of a trip to Croatia with my boyfriend, and cold, because it was colder at home when I got back after the trip :p
We really had a wonderful time at Croatia, but as you could already read here we couldn't pack that many clothes. This was a dress I had bought in Rome two years ago, and I really wanted to wear it on this trip, so this was one of the two dresses that went into my suitcase.

Wonderful sunset, right? :D

Trend: Satchel love

When looking at my bags-list on my Shopcade, I noticed I had recently loved a lot of satchels. This is how my own satchel looks like, which I bought in London:
This Topshop satchel is just perfect for me: I can put quite a lot of stuff in it and I love how there's no pockets underneath the closing buttons :p Besides the colour is blue, which is my favourite colour :D
I'll show you now some other favourites under £50 which you can also find HERE on my Shopcade list.

How did the nail polish contract end?

Remember this post? I told you about how I wasn't allowed to buy nail polish for 365 days. I did it! I didn't buy a single drip of nail polish! (Except top coats, which was allowed, luckily!) And how am I behaving right now, a full week after the contract ended?

OOTD: Celebration!

Saturday evening was celebration time! My boyfriend graduated in his master three months ago, and we finally had the time to celebrate it. Together with his family we went to a nice restaurant in Ghent, where we both study. (Both, yes: boyfriend is still studying, but still: celebration time! :D )
Wondering what I was wearing? Just a little hint:

Clothes & Dreams: Celebration!: watch and bracelet

NOTD : Two-toned nails

As you could read in my dreams of October, I want to get funky with my nail arts again :D This weekend I browsed a little on the internet and found a nice, two-toned nail art. 
It turned out to be a little harder than I expected, since I didn't read any instructions on other blogs or even thought about the nail art before putting him on my nails, but I learned some things to keep in mind when doing similar nail arts.

New brand crush

During the last exams I spent some time visiting blogs. And on one blog, which I unfortunately don't remember the name anymore, I saw a collage with a very, very pretty piece of clothing in it, this one:
 Pretty, isn't it? :D Brand crush mode: ON!

Primark shoplog

Yesterday I spent one hell of an joyful day in the Primark shop in Luik/Liège, Belgium. Well, make two hours out of that, the other four hours of the day we spent trying to get there with trains and busses and the other hour of the day we spent waiting on trains or busses :p
But we had a wonderful day and these are some things I've bought:

Croatian accessories

What I like the most about travelling is coming home with rather unique clothes and accessories. This time I didn't succeed in buying a nice dress, but I did buy a shirt showing a cat with the text "F*ck YOLO, cats have 7 lifes" which is just hilarious! Oh and I also bought a ruffled top in light pink and a white, knitted pullover :D
You will certainly see this later on, but now I'll show you the accessories I've bought.
Just a hint of what I've bought and wore in Croatia:
Clothes & Dreams: Ring pula

Dreams of October

As Dolores O'Riordan sings it so nice: "October, October, The summer is over". Summer might be over, but my dreams aren't! (Even though I've been quite lazy in setting them, blame the exams and holidays! :p ) But after all here I am again with my dreams :D
