Object of my affection

Zara coat | Paris Blanco top + zodiac bracelet | H&M jeans | Object gray leather vest | Scapino boots
H&M  choker necklace | Charmin's stack rings | Primark neon bracelets 
Catrice nailpolish in color 240 'Sold Out For Ever'

It's that type of weather where we're all doubting outfit choices (is this gonna be to warm? Should I wear more layers or no? It's probably handy to take a scarf in my bag just in case...).Oh well, the regular drama's when slowly converting yr wardrobe from winter to spring!
Today I met up with my friend Balda from Vegan Delis for a 30 min shopping trip to Primark and dinner (check out my new finds later this week!). This outfit is comfortable with a little edge. LOVE the leather vest and of course my Zara coat... almost time to zip that baby up and put it away till next winter! (or fall... or a chilly evening in spring....)

Brix & Nature

Found this cool hot-spot in downtown Amsterdam (9 streets) with international allure and live Jazz music every Sunday: Cafe Brix. The place looks like a cool nyc lower east side hang out, with brick walls and amazing art (that you can buy if interested). Something I particularly appreciate are the free art magazines and other interesting reading material they have lying around. A relaxing place to rest the bones after searching for deer at the Dutch country side! (I found a big herd but was so stunned by their beauty that I totally forgot to take pictures.. epic fail). Hope you had a great weekend! xx

Thrifting away

Amazing chess pieces
Finished result: a pretty corner in my bathroom

Give me 20 euro's and a couple of thrift stores and I'm one happy bargain hunter. 
Adding vintage stuff to my humble dwelling feels like I'm transforming my little house into a home with a big hart.

Happy V-day!!

Sweetest and Dearest by John Hay

Vain are all names
To express what thou art,
Gem, rose, or morning-star,
Joy of my heart.
Still do the fond old words
Ring best and clearest
Thou art my love, my own,
Sweetest and dearest.

Every warm heart-beat chimes
These words to me;
Needless all others
Between me and thee.
In the deep silences
One voice thou hearest
'T is my heart calling thee
Sweetest and dearest.

A glimpse of Antwerp


The wonderful thing about living in Europe is that we have all these cool city's surrounding us that are so easily accessible and relatively inexpensive to get to. Antwerp is a great example. So romantic and full of  history. And the food... (sigh)
