NEW IN: Sandro Jeans

During Easter Weekend I went on a short citytrip to Paris with my BFF. In spite of the cold and our sore feet & muscles, we had a BLAST! It was my fifth time in the city of blinding lights. Of course I had seen most of the touristic spots on my previous trips, so this one was all about what Charlotte (the BFF) really wanted to see (it was her second time in the city), some spots I had yet to discover and stores, stores, stores!

You may be surprised that after one day only, having seen cultural highlights such as Montmartre (Moulin Rouge, Place du Tertre and Sacre Coeur) and all kinds of stores (Galeries Lafayette, Chanel, la Rue Saint-Honoré (Colette!)), we (Charlotte) only shopped 1 thing: an egg shaper! We had been very good girls! Until the second day at least…

Photo report: Washington DC

Can’t seem to avoid this Brussels Airlines advertisement? Well, me neither. But there’s a good thing about it! Seeing the ad reminded me of the fact that I still didn’t tell you about the final stop of my September roadtrip: Washington DC!

I’ve been postponing this post for quite some time now. The reason? I didn’t know how to put my ‘Washington enjoyment’ into words. I just liked it that much! Some of you may think Washington is boring and only fun for American politicians, well then you’re wrong. The capital of the USA has a lot to offer: gorgeous views, space, ease, excitement, museums, memorials (which make you’re eyes get teary), architecture, universities, some shopping, afterwork drinks (a word that is probably invented for Washington!), … It has something for everyone.

Well it seems to me that I’m still not able to tell you about what this city is all about, therefore: here’s a photo report!

Ski essentials
1. Ski jacket – Roxy / Sweater – Kenzo / 2. Thermal underwear – Roxy / 3. Scarf – Abercrombie & Fitch /

Now my exams are finally over, I can start counting down the days to my annual skiing trip next week. Ever since I was 4 years old, I went skiing at least once a year. It’s always such a fun holiday! Our destination, this year, is the world’s largest (and my favorite) ski area: Les trois vallées!

Unfortunately skiing isn’t the most fashionable sport. The clothing is often shapeless, snow boots are unelegant, and let us not forget the hideous thermals you’re wearing to prevent yourself from getting cold. But with these skiing essentials all of those problems are in the past!

Roadtrip Week 2: Las Vegas!*

After having spent 4 days at the (rainy and windy) Belgian Sea side and 2 days in a sports center in the small town called Hazewinkel, there is nothing I long more for than Las Vegas.

On our roadtrip we visited a lot of national parks, so the city of Las Vegas brought a welcome change. We stayed at the gorgeous and very modern Vdara Hotel. It didn’t have a casino, nor a club, but since Las Vegas has plenty of them , this wasn’t a problem. It actually brought a certain serenity to the Las Vegas liveliness. Our hotel wasn’t situated on the famous strip, but it was connected with the Aria Hotel and the Bellagio, which made it very easy to access Las Vegas Boulevard.

Roadtrip Souvenirs..*

The Roadtrip Souvenirs

Though not all of my roadtrip stories are published (yet), I couldn’t wait any longer to share my USA purchases with you!

Before my departure I had made myself a list with things I still desperately needed and wanted (of course..). And for the first time my list was completed at my arrival, back in Brussels.

Roadtrip Week 1: Monterey – Yosemity – Death Valley

Though I promised to write during my time in the USA, I was only capable of writing one post (here). In the mean time I’m (unfortunately) back in rainy, grey, little Belgium and I’ve only now found the time to tell you more about my roadtrip. After having spent two days (three nights) in San Francisco, our roadtrip officially started. The following days of my first week at the Westcoast, I’d visit Monterey, Yosemity National Park and Death Valley. Something I looked forward to!

It takes a little over two hours to drive from San Francisco to Monterey. This small town is known as the start (or arrival) of one of the most gorgeous drives along the Pacific Ocean. When driving South, towards Carmel, take the ’17 mile drive’. This scenic route takes you through Pacific Grove & Pebble Beach and passes by mansions (some of them worth over $24,000,000!) & several golf courses. There are plenty of stops where you can enjoy the magnificent and enormous ocean, the nature and wildlife and the white beaches of Carmel Beach.
