3 Places in Barcelona

A while back, I went to Barcelona with Junes ( the fianceé) for a couple of days. That’s the great thing about living in Europe, some of the best cities are just a 2 hour flight away. Whenever I go on a vacation or a city trip, I usually don’t prepare anything. I do basically zero research, don’t know where I want to go, what...

My KOMONO Story

A couple of years ago I visited a small shop in Leuven, with quite an ‘urban’ vibe to it. They had, or better yet have, more alternative brands for shoes, clothing and accessories alongside some very hipster cameras. You know what I’m talking about, those cameras that seem to be part of an outfit and make you wonder if they actually take pictures, but the...

Rituals perfumes

I hate to admit it, but I’m usually a snob when it comes to perfume. I always used to buy the high end brands such as Dior, Guerlain or Chanel, because I thought they were better than the ‘home fragrances’ such as from Zara or Rituals. Don’t get me wrong, Miss Dior is still my all-time favorite fragrance, but recently I’ve had a big change...

Kurdistan

First of all, I apologize for being M.I.A. since August. After graduation -oh I forgot to mention I graduated!- I went to visit my home country for a month. It’s something I do every year, or better yet, I have to do. I still have a very strong connection to Iraq (Kurdistan more precisely) and my relatives there. Whenever I skip a year, I feel...

Life Lately turned into Life Evaluation

Whenever I’m occupied with exams or deadlines, I suddenly think of so many great ideas and things I should accomplish in life. Learning how to sew, play the piano, master a new language, become an expert at drawing, are just a few examples of my ambitious plans. All theoretically speaking of course. I always tell myself ‘I will definitely do that after my exams since...

E-Polette glasses

As an architecture student, I’m used to spending hours and hours in front of a computer screen. But I notice that my eyes can’t handle it as well as they used to. After a couple of hours, I feel a lot of pressure behind my eyes, which sometimes results in a headache. As you might also know, I do binge watch tv-shows every once in...

Summer essentials and homemade iced tea

In Belgium, you’re either freezing your bones off or sweating your ass off. I’d prefer the latter any day. So there was a heat wave last week that made it impossible to do anything really. All I did was lie on the couch and read a book or play Pokémon all day. Who said it’s for kids? Being a grownup is overrated anyway, don’t let them...

Schoolgirl out of school

    The schoolgirl is finally out of school, or at least I hope to be. I had my last exam yesterday so my vacation has officially begun. Right know I’m just waiting anxiously until I get my results in a week. But it also means I can get back to practicing taking pictures and working on my blog in the meantime. I wore this...

Life Lately

First of all, let me state the obvious: I’m a terrible liar. In my previous blogpost about henna (read it here) I said I would be posting again regularly, and I did quite the opposite. At the time I thought it would be possible, but life decided otherwise. As you might know, I’m in my last year of my studies and I hope to graduate...

Hairtalk: Henna

Let me share a secret with you today. The most asked question I get about my looks, is probably about my hair. Is it natural or is it dyed? Well, actually it’s a thing everyone probably has heard of but didn’t know the details of. I’m talking about Henna. What is it Henna is best known as a natural skin and hair dye. It has...
