A younger sister is someone who trusts you to defend her, someone who thinks you know the answers to almost everything…

This is my little sister, Michelle. She is actually my host sister but since she was so little when I met her we’ve been like sisters always. I met her in May ’10 when I moved in with my third host family during my exchange year in Honduras.

She is like a big girl in a little girl’s body. She loves my bags and my make-up, going to the beauty salon for letting them paint our nails, going to the movies together and going to Pizzahut! It’s the coolest 4-year-old kid I know!

I included 2 pictures of her when I stayed with the family and then a picture of every year I visited the family!

Isn’t she adorable?

Since I was done working early today, and because I didn’t post anything on my blog yet, I decided to look for some inspiration on Pinterest. This is my picture of the day. It was taken on the right moment, which is what I love about photography. If the brush would have been a little higher or lower, the photograph would have lost its effect.

As I probably told you in a previous post allready, I’m in love with black and white photography. It makes everything seem so much more elegant!

Skirt: Zara
Pumps: Torfs
Sunglasses: Ray-Ban

I’ve always liked this summer outfit! I like the color of the skirt and I like the fact that it makes me look skinnier too!

The picture was taken by my sister, Margot, in Mexico. We spent the most amazing vacation over there. That trip was like one I will tell my kids about in the future! I hope to go back to Playa del Carmen someday 😉

Update for my fashion & streetstyle followers

From 14 till 16 March, I will go to Madrid with Serafien for taking lots of fashion pictures. I’m so excited! We are going to stay at the house of my Honduran hostsister Jeannette! She just told me today that her roommate’s friends will visit her at the same time, so it’s going to be crowded overthere, but I actually don’t mind! Crowded can be cosy too 😉

I hope everyone had a nice day!

Trip to Béjar

On Saturday I visited Béjar, a little town/city in Spain. It’s only 1h15 from Salamanca, so it was a great opportunity to visit it on my free day. We were a group of 5 people, all from different countries, which was interesting (Japan, England, Korea, Czech Republic & as you know I’m from Belgium). Which is cool about the place is that it’s not that cold in there, but if you look up you can see mountains full of snow around you and you can actually ski overthere.

There was a place, called Camera Oscura, which I recommend to everyone. It’s some kind of touristic attraction, but in an interesting way. We all had to go in a dark room, and one of the towers of the building had the shape of a lens of a camera. From the inside the guide could turn the lens to zoom or to make the image we got to see sharper. Since I’m really interested in film and photography, I really enjoyed this ‘museum’. I paid only € 1,50 so it was really worth its price!

Something else I liked about this town were the ‘murallas’. These were Moorish walls, built in the 11th century. While walking around those walls, we took some really nice pictures.

In that neighborhood I also saw an old fabric, with broken windows and everything. It really seemed to be one of those creepy places they use in thrillers. It fascinates me to see buildings like that, but since I was on the top of a mountain when I saw it, I couldn’t enter to check it out. It wasn’t the only creepy place in Béjar! There were a lot of old houses, that looked like they came straight out of a horror movie.

Last but not least, I loved the restaurant where we ate, called La Antigua Posada Del Peso. For only € 10,00, they offered us a delicious three course meal. There was a lot of choice on the menu, and I honestly didn’t know what to pick. Because we couldn’t chose, the owner brought us his special rice to help us ‘choosing’. When I finally decided I first ate lasagna, after that I shared calamares and some kind of fried ‘tiger’ mussels. After that the owner of the restaurant offered us, instead of 1 dessert, a whole plate with everything that was on his dessert menu. Everything was homemade and it was the most delicious plate I’ve eaten in my life. He also served us a free dessert drink (Caramel vodka), which didn’t taste that bad either. The food, the hospitality and the jokes of the owner which were included, were worth so much more than only € 10,00. I hope that someday I can go back there! 😉

#OOTD: The perfect outfit for a classy party


The perfect outfit for a classy party

I have been posting about various topics now, but I can clearly see on the amount of visitors I receive that if I post Fashion pictures, they are a lot more popular than the other things I post. That’s why I decided to show you another outfit of mine.

I wore this outfit for the baptism party of my cousin Axelle! It’s not the most recent picture (it was taken in April 2012), but a lot of people told me they liked the look, so I decided to post it on my blog.

I have been wearing the skirt a lot since I bought it. If I combine it with a normal tank top, it looks more like a nice summer look, without having the feeling that you’re overdressed.

For me the blouse and the blazer give the outfit a classy touch.

What do you think about it?

Skirt: Zara
