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 »

Borrowed from the Boys: Skinny Scarf

F*** the patriarchy, am I right? This week’s feature makes sure you can be the boss lady you are, minus a skirt or a dress; I’m talking about menswear. I love how a sharp black blazer can dress anything up, from slacks and an oxford shirt to ripped boyfriend jeans and an oversized tee. I… 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 »

Island Life

So I’ve been back in Brussels for about a week now, and the rainy days aren’t really helping my Madeira-withdrawals. I’ve finally sorted through the hundreds (not even exaggerating) of photos from my trip last week, and was oohing and ahhing so much that I had to share some with you guys. From the rainforest-like park in the… Read more »

Paisley Print

One of the best things The best thing about having sisters is the “what’s mine is yours” attitude we adopt when it comes to raiding each other’s closets; and I have two, which means double the outfit ops. On our last day in Lisbon, Danie and I played musical chairs with our clothes and now I’m sort… Read more »

back to basics | back to black

I love clothes; I love dresses and skirts, high heeled boots and mules and oversized bags and blazers. However, dressing way way up isn’t the most practical way to enjoy travelling as much as I do. This is where compromise comes in; I can wear my LBD, but it has to be casual, not fancy. I… Read more »

Kyoto

Who doesn’t love sushi? Okay lots of people don’t, but those guys are missing out – hey, more for me! Of course when in Portugal we stuck to the classic Mediterranean diet of octopus in vinaigrette sauce, grilled sea bass and were spoilt with traditional Madeira wine and Poncha (a deadly, what-happened-last-night kind of drink),… Read more »
