New Pieces In My Closet

When summer was still hanging around in Belgium -it really feels like autumn is already here- my mom, my sister and I had a lovely shoppingday in Antwerp. I can't think of a better way to spend my vacation days!

Lately I'm really into pink, if I see something pink I have to buy it. Weird, especially if you know that most of the items in my closet used to be black. I guess it's just a fase, but I'm loving it.
So when I found these 2 cardigans I brought them home with me. The left one is from H&M and the cardigan with the cute little hearts is from New Look.
These comfortable loafers are from Zara. I was looking for these for ages, well at least it feels like it was that long. I saw them in Louvain, of course no more sizes 38 left. No luck in Hasselt either! Luckily I found a last pair in Antwerp.
It seems that when I want a pair of shoes by Zara I have to go trough a lot of trouble to find them, just like with my wedge booties! What can I say, I'm a shoe addict!
A girl can never have to much accessories! So I added a bracelet with wings and an owl necklace (both from H&M) to my collection.

Look at these beautiful cards I bought at Dille&Kamille a while ago. Don't you just love them? I know I do!
I love cards with vintage prints, I would buy them all if I had a place to put them.
I'm sorry for all these short posts. I hate the fact that I don't have time to blog and visit your blog. Just 3 more days and I'm free again!

Want It!

Meet my new love: The Paloma Leather Satchel by MiuMiu! I fell in love with this bag the first second I saw it. I'm hoping to win the lotery, so I can get my hands on this beauty!

Le Top

Last week I got a comment that made me really really happy. Afrodite, the owner of The Fashion Folio Blog said that she found my blog in the top of Belgian bloggers list on the website. How great is that!
That comment just made my day, well my week actually!
Have a lovely evening!

I finally took the time to take another outfitshot!
Today's outfit isn't anything special. Since I'm studying for 2 exams, the keyword is easy! Just a comfortable and simple outfit that doesn't bother me, because the studying bothers me enough. So that explains the tired face to.
Can't wait for it to be the 28th of August, I'll have my last exam that day and I'll finally have some more time for this blog again.

Ile d'Oléron Part 2

For today I'll be showing you guys all the things I bought during my 2 week stay in France. I bought several things, they were all too cute to resist!

This green perfect green blouse is from H&M in Bordeaux. I know I can buy it here in Belgium aswell, but it's always nice to remember that I bought this blouse in beautiful Bordeaux instead of Brussels. (Sorry for the bad quality picture!)
Earrings I just couldn't resist! The pair on the left is from a little shop in La Cotinière and the wings are from Six in Bordeaux.
A lovely postcard that gives an idea of how the houses are on the island. Don't you just love the romantic look of the house? If I ever own a house, that's how I want mine to look.
Those flowers are typical for the island to. We brought home lots of seeds to plant them in my parents' garden, so we could have a little bit of the island at home.
We found lots of cute shops on the island with many beautiful pieces for decorating your house. Too bad we couldn't bring home most of the stuff... I got myself this retro plate for our bathroom.
Nuxe Huile Prodigieuse: I can't live without this stuff!!! I've been using this oil for some time now and because it's so cheap in France I got myself a big bottle. I'll be posting a review about this product later.
Of course we shopped at l'Occitane en Provence in La Rochelle. The guy who runned to shop was so extremely friendly, wish all the sales people were like that. He complimented me on my French (blush!) and he gave us a few products for free. I got a recharger for my conditioner and a olive mask (ECOCERT), the tonic and facial mouse I got for free. The guy also gave a second mask for free, but my sister has that one.
These products will be reviewed to.
Some very cheap eyeshadow from the local market, for only 3 euros! I love the colors and the quality isn't too bad either.
This new blush brush is from Galeries Lafayette and is very eco-friendly. I'll tell you guys more about this one in another post.
As you probably noticed in the other post about my trip, I discovered a lovely macaronshop in Bordeaux. Of course I had to check out the macarons! I bought a tube with 5 macarons. It was a bit more expensive than the macarons alone, but the tube is so cute. Check out the website!
The macaron in the center is coffee, on the left you have honey & chocolate and pistache and on the right you have chocolate and lemon. And they were delicious!
Potteries are so beautiful to visit and I bought this bottle (or how do you call this?) for olive-oil. The colors make me think of The Provence. I love having a little bit of France in my kitchen.
These 2 are from E. Leclerc, but could come right out of a potterie aswell. A little mustard jar (I'm using mine for sugar) and a bottle for vinegar.
This was the first year we tried the 'caramel au beurre salé', something typical for the region where we stayed. I was sad we didn't try it sooner, because it's really delicious. I brought home this jar filled with caramels for my boyfriend. And it looks great in my kitchen to (a win-win situation!).
Edit: I added the website for the macaronshop in Bordeaux. Forgot to post it!

Ile d'Oléron Part 1

I finally managed to select a "few" pictures to give you guys an idea of the beautiful place where I spended my holidays this year. The lovely Ile d'Oléron at the Atlantic Ocean. I used to spent every summer there untill the year I turned 16. I was so happy to be back there and I'm so going back in a few years.
We did so many fun things: go to the beach, walk around in our village (Le Chateau), visited some other villages on the Island and the mainland, we went to La Rochelle and to Bordeaux (I fell in love with Bordeaux!!!), did some shopping, I ate so many macarons that I lost count :p, I discoverd the Caramel au beurre salé (it's delicious), .... Really just to much to tell!
We took over 400 pictures, so I made a small selection for you guys to maybe fall in love with this wonderful place to.

Well, I hope you guys enjoyed looking at our pictures! Part 2 will be online in a few days. I'll be showing you guys what I bought during my vacation.
Have a lovely weekend!
