A Letter To My First Love,

To Brussels, I won’t even waste my words on the hateful people that have tried to take on the magical, eclectic little corner of the world that you are, because their mission to destroy everything that embodies beauty, love and light is in vain. Some are so entangled in their own darkness that they try to… Read more »

Inspired by: Jackson Pollock

This isn’t the first time I’ve splurged on an artsy item, and it probably won’t be the last. From home decor to accessories, I love owning unique, art-inspired conversation pieces that really up the ante of my wardrobe, and this Zadig & Voltaire XS Pollock bag is my latest purchase.  I was minding my business… Read more »

Denim, duh

You know those days where you’re in love with the top you’ve picked out but can’t find the bottoms to go with it? The trumpet sleeves on your chiffon blouse are too flouncy for loose silk slacks, and the hemline on your tunic is so long when you pair it with shorts or a mini… Read more »

Dazzle me in gold | Brussels

One of my favourite places in the world, and probably the most magical little corner of Europe, is the Grand Place of Brussels. The central square of downtown Brussels is a hub for international tourists, storybook cafés, luxurious chocolate boutiques and is a downright dazzling must-see location by day. However, when you have the privilege of living here,… Read more »

Festival-Friendly

It’s that magical time of year again! Rock Werchter kicked it off with a bang, Tomorrowland is coming to a close, Osheaga is happening and everyone is stocking up on floral headbands and bejewelling their bodies; it’s festival season babes! In about a week I head to Vancouver to visit my boyfriend, and he got us tickets to… Read more »

Get Socialized

Ah, social media. Whether you crave it, despise it or are disablingly addicted to it, (and according to Odd Mom Out TA, Technology Addiction, is alive and well in the Upper East Side), you can’t escape it. I’ll be the first to admit that I spend a good amount of time on social media, but lately… Read more »

birthday appreciations

Well it’s official; I am no longer a teenager people! To be totally honest I don’t feel very different, except a little happier to have passed another milestone, this one into legitimate adulthood. Not that I think I’m a real adult (yet), but yesterday I went to my Belgian dentist for an annual checkup and she opened a… Read more »

Graduation Celebrations

It’s that time of year again; pre-proms, proms, graduations and of course, the famous Skeppner Graduation Party. Last year was Lisa’s celebration and I’m so happy I got to fly in from Montreal to party with her. This year was just as special, because both of our younger sisters were graduating (#proudmoment) and Ella kept with the… Read more »

70’s Revival: Flower Power

Disclaimer: I have worn this dress before, as you have probably recognized since it’s pretty hard to forget (read: very loud print.) I really try to limit recycling outfits on my blog, but some are just so nice I’ll wear ’em twice. And it is worth mentioning that according to Marie Claire, “cartoon florals are key for… Read more »

precious

Nope, not the fantastic 2009 film Precious…think more Gollum from Lord of the Rings; “my precious, my precious.” Give up yet? Precious stones. More like boulders, actually. Boulder bling? Whatever you want to call it, I have been experiencing a mild obsession with rock jewellery, rings in particular. The key with this trend is to keep it minimalistic, meaning… Read more »
