I'm A Good Student

Yes, I am! This is the first time in all those years that I'm a student that I started studying so early in my vacation. Well, only because it's really necessary! I only have 3 exams this January, but they placed them all in 1 week. So stupid, because we have a whole month of exams. I try to look at it in a positive way and think of the long vacation (3 weeks) I have after that week of exams.
Here are some pictures of my outfit and a little peek of our apartment (just a very little peek). And now I'm heading back to my books!

Snow Part 2

As said in my previous post, I just love snow! The world turns into this beautiful and magical place with it's white snowcarpet! I took some pictures yesterday evening and this morning. So here is the view we have from one of our bedroom windows!
In the back you can see the Sint-Michielskerk (Saint Michael's Church) and the church right behind the tree is the Sint-Antoniuskapel (Saint Anthony's Chapel) where Father Damien is buried. I just love looking outside of my windows at night and stare at the beautiful Saint Michael's Church.

I'm sorry that this post turned out the be a little history lesson about Leuven, but I'm just really happy to live in a city with so much interesting history facts.
And about the snow, it's not so much fun when the snow turns into ice and walking turns into ice-skating :)

We finally had the time to take some outfitshots on our way to the supermarket. It started snowing this afternoon, what makes me really happy! I'm not wearing anything special, just trying to keep myself warm.
My holidays have officially started today, but I need to start studying for my exams that start in January. This means that I'll have more time to blog, because it's a good way of relaxing!

Sonia Rykiel pour H&M

I've finally bought the 2 dresses that I wanted from this first collection. I went by H&M here in Leuven saturday, but they only had the striped lingerie which isn't something that I wear. So this morning I made a quick trip to Brussels and found my 2 dresses!
I'm so happy with these. They're a bit see-true, but they can be easily combined with some pants or 100 den tights. That's what I really like about this collection, it's lingerie but you can wear it all the time.
What did you guys get from the 'Sonia Rykiel pour H&M' collection?

Our Trip To Budapest

As promised here are the photos we took in Budapest in September. I know it's already been 3 months since we were there, but I still wanted to share my favorite photos. We were there for 5 days and took is easy. Normally we have a hectic schedule to see everything, but we decided to take it slow. We spent an entire day at the Szechenyi Furdo (it's paradise), we spended lots of time at the historic castle district (fisherman's bastion, Mathias church, ...) and we took lots of time to shop. We wandered around the streets which was a lot of fun and we even ended up at ikea (were the ludde sheepskin I like so much was very cheap, so that was nice). Budapest is a very nice city and the weather was lovely when we were there. I'm so looking forward to the next vacation with my boyfriend, but I don't know yet when it will be and were we'll end up.

The start of our trip in the historic castle district.

I've finally made some outfitshots again, it's been way too long! We were on our way to the car for a quick trip to Ikea. The only thing I bought there was a book about home-decoration. I love to 'read' books like this. I'll post some of my favourite interiors once I've found the time to catch up with my schoolwork.
I've come up with a new sort of post for this blog aswell, expect the first one to be posted around the weekend. Our photos from the trip to Budapest in septembre will be posted this friday, I promise.

Paris entre Chats!

I've been away from this blog again, I know. I tried to take outfitshots, but it's too dark when I get home from school. I'll try to make some pictures tomorrow, I promise.
I finally got my new book which I ordered a few weeks ago: Paris entre Chats. It's a photography book with pictures from cats in Paris (the title says it all). I wanted to buy it when I was in Paris last time, but I didn't. I couldn't get the book out of my head so I ordered it at Fnac. And it's really beautiful and nice to look in. It's a book for cat- and photographylovers, I can recommed it to everybody!
This is the cover of the book, I didn't have the chance yet to take some other pictures. So you must believe me that this is a wonderful book!
Buy it:

I Have Some New Things

Hello you guys, I had so much things to blog about this week. Unfortunately I became sick, my boyfriend gave me an infection on my lungs. So I spended this week in bed feeling awefull and coughing my lungs out. Right now I'm still feeling the same, but I hope things will be better soon.
Right now I have some things that I want to show you guys that I bought last week when I was in Antwerp with my sister. Still have some new pieces of clothing, but I'll show them in another post.
These beautiful black/pink pumps are from New Look. I love them! Can't wait to wear these to a party or I might save these for my New Years outfit, I'm not sure yet.
This beautiful brown leather bag is from Vero Moda. It's so soft and even big enough to take to school. The color is just the perfect shade of brown.
This cute necklace is from Claire's. I usually never stop at this shop, but my sister was searching a costume for Halloween. You guys know that I love cats. The necklace also came with a pair of cat-earrings.

Beautiful Happiness

You guys already know that I'm a real beauty-addict. Over the past two weeks I bought some really great new products.
My new addictions are Nuxe-products. Nuxe is already on the market since 1957 and nature plays a very important role in their products. Things to remember: all products are free from animal ingredients, almost 80% of the ingredients are of natural origin, everything is dermatilogical tested and last but not least all products smell great and just are the best in my opinion.
I bought the Aroma-Perfection Gel Nettoyant Purifiant to use from time to time, because it's actually for oily skin; the Lait Démaquillant aux 3 Roses which smells great and feels so soft on your skin and the Rêve de Miel crème Mains et Ongles. I also got lots of little testers from different Nuxe products. My favorite amongst them is the Huile Prodigieuse which you can use on your body, face and hair. I must say, this one is the best of all Nuxe products!
To be honest, I want almost everything they have on their site. So take a visit if you're not afraid to end up broke! :)
I finally bought myself a serum to wear under my day cream. I choose the Aqualia Thermal Serum from Vichy, because it hydrates and that's just what I need.
When I went to the Label.Fashion Focus party in may I received a coupon for a free Kiehl's lip balm and I finally had the time to pass by the store. I'm glad I did, because it's perfect to use in this colder weather.
What's your beauty-addiction or which products do you really like? I'm curious to read your comments :)


I know I've been away for 2 weeks, but this time it's not because I was too busy with other stuff. I had some problems with blogger, I couldn't log myself in... I'm glad everything works now!
Still I'm sad, because I didn't even had the chance to post anything the day that my blog turned 2 years old! So a happy belated birthday to my blog!

My Favorite Model

I took these pictures of Toulouse last week and I think they're too cute to not post them on my blog. Isn't he the cutest cat in the world?

I'm sorting out our Budapest pictures, so expect the Budapest-post at the at of this week. I don't have much time right now because I'm making my delicious lasagne and I still have lots of work :)

Edit: Thank you guys for the ever so sweet comments on this post. I really appreciate this!
BTW Toulouse even scored a blogpost on the Catherine Ashley Talks Fashion blog. Thank you Catherine Ashley! That's really sweet of you!
