8 SALES PIECES THAT YOU'LL BE WEARING IN 2017

Sure, in between getting rid of your X-mas tree (i.e. the most depressing activity ever) and the ice cold temperatures, January is no joke. BUT! The Winter sales have arrived, and they're pretty damn good at keeping our spirits high! And shopping smart is actually a lot easier than you'd think: just ask yourself...

SCORE A SERIOUSLY SPARKLY NYE OUTFIT

It's a given: no matter how early I start planning (= scrolling through endless outfit options on my phone, while watching SATC re-runs with one eye) my NYE outfit, I always end up in a slight state of panic the week before the big countdown... 

MY (AFFORDABLE!) HOLIDAY WISHLIST

Anybody else freaking out about how ridiculously fast December flew by?? With these super dark days you'd think it wouldn't feel like that, right? But no matter how excited I am for the approaching Holidays...

MY SANUI KEYCHAINS COLLECTION!

I'm so excited to finally share my SANUI keychains collection with you all!! :) I honestly can't even begin to explain what it means to me to be expanding our line with these beauties...

HANSEL & GRETEL

Growing up, all I wanted to do around the Holidays was curl up on the sofa with my mama, and listen to her telling me fairy tales. I have such vivid memories of those afternoons, when the adventures of Little Red Riding Hood (kind of obsessed with her :)), Rapunzel and Cinderella made me feel like a princess myself...

CELEBRATE THANKSGIVING YOUR WAY

I know that Thanksgiving isn't exactly a European Holiday, but hey, in November any excuse to stuff your face with pumpkin spiced/ginger/apple everything is a good one. And since it never hurt to make a little list of delightfully pretty things you're thankful for, here goes...

TO LOVE AND PROTECT

Something I try to do every year (but never succeed in) is to start shopping for X-mas presents before the streets get filled with crazy crowds of angry last-minute shoppers.

4 FUN THINGS TO DO ON YOUR OWN

Here's a confession: ever since I was a teenager, I kind of have a love/hate relationship with this time of year. Because with the Holiday season approaching, so does the pressure of coming up with super duper cool X-mas and New Year's Eve plans.

OUT WITH THE OLD, IN WITH THE NEW

Whenever a designer brand decides to do a collaboration that involves more affordable pieces, I'm completely over the moon, because you know it's gonna be good. So you get my excitement when I heard about Marni teaming up with Zalando to reinterpret the iconic footwear of Dr. Martens, Reebok, Timberland, and Vans.

SPACE OUT FOR A LITTLE WHILE

Sometimes this earthly life can be a little bit disappointing...

BE A MERMAID FOR ONE DAY

Look me in the eye and tell me honestly that you haven't been secretly admiring cutie North West's recent mermaid obsession!

3 BRIGHT WEDDING PARTY LOOKS

It's still wedding season and that means - aside from the sheer joy that comes with celebrating eternal love - a whole lotta outfit stress.

TASSEL TOYS

Since they're the most eyecatching addition to my own SANUI jewelry, it's probably no surprise that I'm a big fan of the current tassel trend.

MY SANUI JEWELRY COLLECTION

Words can't describe how excited I am to finally reveal my SANUI pop-up jewelry collection to you all!

BALLERINA TOUGH

When the ballet inspired stuff (think layers and layers of tulle, soft pink satin and pimped out ballerina flats) started to hit the runways I was very excited.

HOW TO DRESS FOR WORK DURING A HEAT WAVE

When it’s sticky and hot out, it can be a bit tricky to come up with outfits that defy the heat (hotpants! bikinis!) but also make you feel comfortable to sit through a meeting (no hotpants! no bikinis!)

ELEPHANT KING

This might sound a bit strange, but I've always had this huge fascination for elephants.

MY SUMMER SALES MUST-BUYS

Summer sales are here, and since the weather's finally getting better here in Belgium, there's no better time to stock up on breezy white dresses, big sunnies, bright footwear, and tiny bikinis
