A Bit of Belgium

back in March I went on a little holiday trip to Belgium. even though I had know I would be going to Brussels at the end of March for a while, the whole trip was a very last minute thing and we had actually considered cancelling the whole thing (because of the fact that the Brussels attacks happened only a couple a days before we were meant to go on our trip). but in the end, I am so glad we went through with it because we had an amazing time and Belgium in general was more than lovely. so without further ado, here is a small photo diary of my trip.

obviously one of the main points of interest in Brussels is the Grand Place (Grote Markt). it is such a gorgeous square and the architecture is super beautiful. the centre of Brussels is actually quite small so everything is within a walkable distance from the Grand Place. you could spend hours just walking around.

as I mentioned before, the architecture in Brussels is absolutely stunning. Galeries Royales Saint-Hubert in the above photo is a wonderful example of that. 

as you can see, we indulged quite a lot while in Brussels. before the trip, we were told we definitely need to try the Belgian beer, waffles and fries. we took that very seriously and I was loving every minute of it.

we also decided to visit Antwerp as it's such a short train ride away from Brussels. I got the feeling that it's a cool and laid-back city with a calm vibe to it, the old town centre was super beautiful and the city has got some really nice art galleries. Antwerp is a little bit of everything and I absolutely loved it!

Brighton Baby










although I've been living in London for more than a year, I hadn't made it down to Brighton until last week. my mum had come to visit me, I took some days off work and we decided to go on a nice lil day trip to the beach. Brighton was even lovelier than I expected. I mean, look at my stupid grin in the photos - can you see that I was loving every minute of the trip?! 

the sun meant that I could finally show off my new sunnies from Firmoo. I always struggle with finding sunglasses that actually suit my odd face but these are absolutely great, I love the cat eye shape and the tortoise print. definitely a must-have for summer. check them out here.

here's some long overdue photos of me, my camel coat and my pink backpack from a trip to Brussels back in March. I promise I will do a post on that trip in the nearest future - I've got loads of photos and there's so much I want to share with you guys because Brussels was quite a surreal experience. in the mean time, look at them shadows in the first photos. so cooooooool.

I never used to be one of those "girly girls" but here I am obsessing over literally everything that is pink. I've got these baby pink hues stuck in my heart - give me everything!!

I feel like I owe too many pairs of trainers (I am even trying to make a conscious effort to stop buying them) but when I saw these pink ones on my obligatory, once-a-month shopping trip to Westfield, I fell in love. so trainers it is.

the older I get, the more I seem to like the colour pink. all my recent wardrobe additions have been pink and I'm not ashamed at all. at least my outfit is screaming "spring spring spring!!!" even though the weather certainly isn't cooperating.

at the moment there's nothing I love more than my new pair of Adidas Stan Smiths, they mean more to me than all my work colleagues combined. I might be slightly exaggerating but you get my point, right?

life-wise, everything is falling apart and I could not be more excited for my upcoming holidays. plus, I can't wait for spring to come - I have a feeling London will turn slightly magical when it finally arrives.

Dreaming of Princess Locks

a very, very long time ago (7 years ago) I used to have long and healthy brown hair... but then I got stupid and cut it all off. for the past couple of years I've had medium length hair and as much as I've tried growing it back, it's taking a lot of time, plus I'm constantly straightening and bleaching my hair. so when Irresistible Me contacted me to try their clip-in hair extensions, I jumped at the chance.

I went for the Silky Touch 20 inch hair extensions in Platinum Blonde and I am sooooo in love. the set came with 10 clips and in my opinion, for long and luscious locks you don't even need to use all of them. I wanted hair that would be longer and more voluminous than mine (you can have a look at my older blog posts to see my natural hair, like here and here), and I think the result is amazing. the only small downside is that I had to slightly tone the extensions with purple shampoo since my hair is a bit more grey-ish but now they match my hair perfectly!

honestly, I am super impressed with the quality of these hair extensions, they're so soft and silky, and all my friends have commented on how natural my hair looks. if you've always dreamed of having princess locks then look no further because Irresistible Me have got you covered!
