Another ReTurn

Almost a month has passed since my last outfit post. Time both flies and drags by painfully slow.
So well, here I am again. Just ending the last days of my internship over here. May will be marked as a writing month, my thesis is due on May 29, D-day. The reason for the lack of posts has been the usual: 'no time + bad weather' combo. Spring has been fooling with us once again and I'm really one of those people who get really moody when all you see is rain. So I've been hit by another wave of melancholia the last few weeks.
Luckily it didn't rain today during my lunch brake and I've had a chance to take some pictures.
I really wanted to show off my new coat. The sweet girls of Black Balloon let us choose a piece from their collection yesterday. Although they have a lot of nice pieces I had to choose by far the most exquisite piece, the Sweetie Silk Coat. It's minimal, but still shiny and oh, so perfect! Sweet, sweet, sweet! 
I also bought their trade mark 'Urban African Queen' earrings and a necklace (will snap that one soonish).
Actually working there was quite dangerous, now my wishlist is even longer than it was before.

Wearing: Black Balloon coat and earrings, H&M dress, Zara bag & gloves.

Right now three free days await me. The longest weekend since January. I'm looking forward to it, I need my rest. Tomorrow I'll be (FINALLY) cutting and dyeing my hair. It's been about seven months since I last dyed my hair, must be my record so far. Lately I've been using my actual hair color just to cover my grey hair. Planning on doing something crazy again, though, a bit bored with mu current hairdo.
Monday and Tuesday me and the boyfriend are gonna work on cleaning our new house and just spend some quality time together. I can't wait until we're going to start decorating, too exiting! 
Hope all of you have a nice weekend out there, thanks for stopping by, bye! x

Coachella and some other dreams

Here I am again, at last. Not much has changed except the fact that I've been working my ass off the last few weeks. The weather is horrible and I'm sick again, the usual. The last week of my internship is kicking in tomorrow. It was an intense, but a pleasant ride which'll stay with me for a long time.
But back to blogging here, I'm not gonna lie, I didn't have the time to snap new pictures and the weather wasn't much helpful too. Hoping to post some new stuff next weekend. 

For now a dose of escapism. Daydreaming is an inexpensive, but a frustrating hobby at times.
I'm sunny person, even if you can't tell at first, I love warm temperatures, the summer with ice cream and it's warm nights. Summer also means festivals. Luckily we have some great festivals in Belgium that combine a lot of different genres for every music lover. But in festival land there's something known as Coachella.
Over the years it has become more than a festival, but the place to spot some of the biggest celebrities (I'm screaming DITA here) or being spotted yourself. Not a lot of festivals around here are as trendy (/hipster like) as Coachella. A desert as a setting is pretty neat too, you don't have to fear you'll be hit by pouring rain and pools of mud as a result.
The most important thing is still music, though! What I like about Coachella is that it combines a lot of different artists and genres. Perfect for musical omnivores such as myself. 
There's only one minor detail here, it's located on another continent, but nothing that a plane and a fat bank account can't cross these days. So while I wait for a winning ticket or an inheritance from a distant millionaire relative, I go through this celebrities snap shots and dream away once more.
Dreaming about the sun burning on my skin, the smell of grass and some great music blazing from every corner. That's what freedom looks like to me.

My beloved Dita, 39 and stunning!

Best hair ever!!

We'd be total besties, I can feel it!


Peace and swag and studs and Chanel!

Kitty goes Crafting

New steps

Look who's back again! After a seven day workweek I finally had two days to rest a bit.
Lately I haven't had much time to just sit back and relax, but I've been enjoying every second of it.
There's so much going on in my life at this moment, but that's how it should be.
I, or better to say we have a lot of work to do here with the summer in sight. Because (insert epic drum roll here) me and my boyfriend recently bought a house! Yesterday we actually went window shopping, literally :)
I am at a turning point in my life, with graduation and moving in together in sight, I couldn't be happier!
At last I can channel my shopping habit into a different direction, decorating our future home. Off course a lot of storage space is needed to keep all of my clothes. But I'm going to sort through all the stuff and get rid of at least half of it. I know it won't be easy to part with all of it, but it's really necessary and I don't wear all my stuff anyway. But who am I telling all of this?! Most of you girls know exactly what I'm talking about ;)
I promise to keep you updated on the progress of the house, but right now there're still a million things to be done.

In the meantime a new outfit post of what I wore yesterday while shopping for windows and doors.
The weather was on our side once more, so I decided to dress up a little.

Wearing: Mango Blazer, 3 Suisses cashmere sweater, Zara skirt, H&M shoes, Tiany Kirilove for Vero Moda clutch, Butler & Wilson skull bracelet, Michael Kors watch, Vivienne Westwood orb brooch, Twice As Nice silver rings, Dyrberg/Kern earrings.

Also don't forget about my Black Balloon giveaway!
