Imelda's Inspiration Pt.4

Finally I've found the time to write another article, it was such a busy week for me. 
Wednesday I went to the Joyce Jonathan concert in Brussels and it was amazing! I got the tickets as a birthday gift from my boyfriend and I couldn't be happier with this gift. She's such a good singer, I had a wonderful time.
Yesterday I went to Antwerp (right after work) to visit a few pr agencies. I couldn't make it to all of them, too bad. I'll be posting my favorites in a while.
This is a great 'how to wear a scarf' picture. Must try this soon.
Beautiful drawing that hangs in my livingroom. I forgot the artist, my apologies!
That electric blue pants is awesome. That's one to go on my wishlist (I'm pretty sure these inspiration posts aren't so good for my wishlist).
 Just a beautiful picture that I wanted to share with you guys.
Animal print shoes and cute socks, a killer combination!

I hope you guys liked this post and I wish you all a great weekend!

Have An Eggsellent Easter With Lush!

When there is a holiday on the calender you can be sure Lush will spoil us with another limited edition holiday collection. That's no different for Easter this year, so today I'll be sharing some of the new goodies Lush has designed to Easter up your bathroom.
Donkey Oaty Bath Ballistic: A cute and sunny ballistic with the fragrance of Lush's Charity Pot. A bright coloured donkey filled with rice paper ribbons, that looks like a pinata. While he's bubbling up you can dream away and enjoy the colorsensation in the water.

Happy Easter Gift: This gift contains a hollow bath ballistic egg- one side with the sweet Candy Fluff perfume and the other side with the refreshing Avobath mix. Inside the egg you'll find a small Hippy Chick Bath Ballistic, ready to be born. All of this is wrapped in a Knot-Wrap scarf.
Bunny Knot Wrap: specially designed for Easter, these Bunny scarves are perfect to wrap Lush goodies you want to give to anyone. A great ecological alternative to avoid paper (that gets thrown away).

In this collection you can also find the Hippy Chick (a cute ballistic in the shape of a chick) and the Candy Fluff Egg (a bright pink ballistic in the shape of an easter egg). I'll be reviewing these 2 products in another post, so stay tuned for more Lush news.

What do you guys think of this collection? Have you tried anything yourself?

Essentiel Flash Collection Summer 2011

2 weeks ago I was invited at Essentiel in Brussels to check out the Flash Collection for summer 2011. A very colorful collection that you must see in real life. I'm talking fluo yellow and pink all over the place and I loved it. Nothing better to spice up your outfit than a splash of color. 
We got spoiled with good music, cocktails and delicious macaroons (yummy!). The event was the last on the planning of that day (press days in Brussels) and although I was tired I did have a great time meeting a lot of interesting people.

 Can I have the whole platter?

 I really want these black shoes!!!
And I want this vase too!!!

The evening we got the opportunity to shop at a 20% discount, but I resisted the temptation (ain't I a good girl?). I got my fix that evening from the beautiful store itself, it's so nicely decorated. You should really go and have a look yourself.
I had a great time and want to thank Oona for inviting me.

What do you guys think of the Flash collection?

Imelda's Inspiration Pt.3

Ever since I started with these inspiration posts it seems that the weeks are going by so much faster. Luckily I get inspired by so many things, so I will always have lots of things to talk about in these posts. That's enough chit chat for today, let's got on with the pictures.
These golden sequined pants are the textbook definition of fabulous. God I wish I had these in my closet!
This beautiful house in La Rochelle has been on my mind since last summer. I love the romantic feeling, I really hope to own a house like this someday!
Food and the YSL ring, a perfect combination. This ring has been on my wishlist ever since I saw it the first time.
My very cute cat Louke. When I see him sleeping like that, I just want to lay next to him and cuddle. What can I say? I'm a cat lady and I'm proud of it!
The perfect blue blazer with fierce shoulderdetails. Unfortunately sold out way too fast!

Have a great weekend!

Press Days @ Brussel Pt. 2

So here's the second part of my Press Days recap. There are fewer pictures in this post, mainly because a lot of my pictures failed (I apologize for that).

Our next stop was the Top Secret Communication showroom. I was really surprised to find out they represent Nuxe, one of my favorite beauty brands! I felt like I was in heaven, especially because of the beautiful presentation of the products. I already had a huge Nuxe wishlist, but it got even bigger after this visit :)
 Bio Beauté by Nuxe
 Beautiful Natan dresses

The last agency we visited that day was Bureau Löffler. I already knew that we could expect luxurious brands and I saw some pretty great pieces.
 Jimmy Choo (OMG!)
 Stella Forest
Isn't this dress the most beautiful you've ever seen?
 Stella Forest
These are so cute and are on the wishlist!

A huge thank you to Top Secret Communication and Bureau Löffler for inviting me, it was great seeing your showrooms.

I really hope you liked these 2 posts filled with beautiful goodies, because next week I'll be attending the Press Days in Antwerp. So stay tuned for even more wishlist material!

Press Days @ Brussel Pt. 1

As you might know already, I attented the Press Days in Brussels 2 weeks ago. I finally found the time to go trough all my pictures (believe me, it took me a while).
It was my first time and I can say that I had a great time. It's so nice to see all the beautiful things that await us for Fall-Winter 2011. Since I have so many pictures I decided to make 2 different posts. In each post you'll see my favorites.

I'll start with Tan-dem. I knew they represent Sonia Rykiel and Sandrina Fasoli (2 of my favorite designers), so I was anxious to see the collections and they didn't let me down. I'll defenitely need to find some sponsors for the next season.

The people from Tan-dem had arranged a little surprise for the visitors, named Achraf Amiri. We all got the change to let him make a sketch of us. He's such a talented artist. What do you guys think of the result?

Our next stop was Sumo, located in a beautiful building in Brussels. There were so much beautiful brands to be discovered, so we got a tour by the lovely ladies at Sumo. We ended our visit in the garden with a delicious lunch.
 Mont-Saint Michel
 Watches by Thomas Sabo
 Hoss Intropia

I'm really curious to know more about these products.
 IKKS shoes
Delicious mini falafel-burgers as lunch

Of course I want to thank Tan-dem and Sumo for inviting me, I had a great time and hope to see you next time. And I can't forget to mention the lovely company I had that day, fellow bloggers Kim, Hanne, Stéphanie and Astrid.

I hope you liked this first post about the Brussel Press Days. Tomorrow the second part will be online.
