Paint The Town Red...

If my friends would read this post, they would think: "Jezus, is she ever gonna stop?"
Yes I am... after this post ;)
Red... Since August, I was waiting for October 22nd... the day Taylor Swift released her new album...
I'm not going to say too much about it.. Just listen to these songs... ;)

Ok I bet that's quit enough for now ;)
Just one more thing...
The beautiful cover of the album of course!

Diamonds are... Oh No! Shoes are a girl's best friend!

Every now and then, my mom is complaining that I own way to many shoes! I can't help it, mom! Shoes are ... like diamonds! They've got a certain magic!

A girl once said to me: "Your shoes define you!" And it's true. They can tell you what kind of person you are.
It can also ruin a whole outfit, if you're not wearing the right ones!

I actually don't wanna know how many pairs I have in my closet... One thing I do know for sure, is that I need a few more before summer starts! ;)

Like for example these ones:

How many pairs do you have and what kind of shoes are on your wishlist?

Taylor Swift - Safe And Sound (The Hunger Games Soundtrack)

They say that 'The Hunger Games' will be the next new Twilight! To be very honest with you, I never heard of the books before... And when I saw the trailer, I was a little confused what the movie is about?
Taylor Swift produced the soundtrack for this movie. I like the song, but I think I can get bored with it very quickly... She released the video for this song last night. I love the video... In a way, it reminds me of Birdy's 'Skinny Love'.

'The Hunger Games' will be in theaters 21th March.

Have you read the books? And what do you think about the soundtrack?

Where Do Broken Hearts Go, Whitney?

I bet you've read a thousand articles already about the tragic death of Whitney Houston... And here's another one, a tribute to her... Because she was a legende! And I'm not saying that because everyone else is, but I just really think she is... I was a fan since I was a little girl!

I think I was 10 years old, when I saw the Prince Of Egypt in theaters. When Whitney and Mariah released the soundtrack for this movie, I just had to have it... I had a little piggy bank and took all the money that I had just to buy the CD!

When I was little, my dad took me to the library a lot ... He always wanted me to loan books to read, instead I always took Whitney's CD's! I was addicted to this CD you can see on the picture...

Last night when I heard the news, I was really in shock, like so many other people...

You will be missed dear Whitney... I hope you'll be happy on the other side...

There are so many wonderful songs, but these are a few of my favorite...

And the list goes on and on...

Take Care, Whitney... I'll miss you...

The Help


And the Oscar goes to.... The Help! I hope so, because this movie was só good! I went to see it with Krizia, but I didn't know what to expect. I considered buying the book, but I still had a lot of unread books left on my bookshelf...
The movie is about a young author during the civil rights movement of the 1960s who decides to write a book detailing the African-American maid's point of view on the white families for which they work. It's a funny movie, but still very emotional at the same time! You just have to see it!

Emma Stone's got the leading role in this movie. I knew who she was because of her style, but not as an actress. The girl can act!
Another thing I like about this movie is the clothing style of the 1960s. So many cute dresses! I want them all!

Have you seen the movie, or are you planning to see it?

Crystall..ICED by Essence

I was doing some shopping last week at our local shop with beauty products... I can't help passing the Essence section without stopping for a quick look! Something caught my eye immediately... the new CrystallIced line! It was hard for me not to buy everything... but I left the store with two new nail polishes! Check it out!


Left: 01 - It's a Snow-Woman's World
Right: 02 - Ice Crystals On My Window

I think their names are just so funny! But the colors... just amazing! Too bad it's a limited edition!
The colors are very vibrant, but still simple and soft at the same time! You can put it on for any occasion: to go school, a party, at work,...
As you can see on the picture below, I also got the nail art stickers... Totally my thing!

Florence & The Machine - No Light, No Light

Ohhh there's something about this girl: Florence Welch! The red hair, her style ... and of course the music!
There's a lot of controversy about this next video. Many people debated on the band's YouTube Channel, claiming the video references the Illuminati and Satan worship. I must say it's different, but not shocking! :) And it's all about the music, not the video...

L'Occitane: Cherry Blossom Eau De Toilette

Last year they opened a l'Occitane store at Maasmechelen Village. To be very honest with you, I never heard about the brand... Shame on me! In every big city and in most American malls you can find a l'Occitane store! I know their products can be a little expensive but I guess they're pretty good...

A couple of months ago I tried a frangrance at the store: Cherry Blossom. It's very hard for me to find the right fragrance, because most of the time the smell is way too strong.... But this one was just perfect! Light and sweet! For some reason I didn't buy it... until last weekend!

The smell of blossom makes me long for spring! Mmmm...

Look-alike: YSL Arty Ring

Owning one of these babies is every fashionista's dream! One little problem... the pricetag! Thank God that some websites offer look-alike rings! Like for example my new ring! It's on sale now for $18 at Coal N Terry Vintage...  I already received my package after 4 days!
Would consider to order one or buy the original YSL ring?

Sales Part II

So as I said earlier, I went shopping in Hasselt last Wednesday. A very short trip, because it was way to crowded for me! I just went into the shops I usually visit: Bershka, Zara, America Today ... and that's it! So it's no surprise that I didn't spend a lot of money! I only bought these two items:

I love this native style T-shirt! It makes me long for summer!

Just a simple shirt to wear with a jeans!

Need... to ... buy ... SALES!

What's the first thing that pops into your mind when you hear the word "sale"? SHOPPING TIME! Sales started today in Belgium ... I had to work today, but after I was done, I just had to go and shop! I went to some local shops like H&M, Vero Moda, Pimkie, Avance, ... I think I might go to Hasselt tomorrow to even do some more shopping! ;)

This is what I bought today!

I bought this bag at Avance. I paid € 39,95. It got 20% discount!

These T-shirts are on sale at Pimkie. Just a few basic shirt that I can wear during summer and winter!
The beige dress is a Alexa Chung for Vero Moda! I only paid € 13!

Bye bye 2011... Hello 2012!

First of all, happy new year everyone! I wish you a fabulous 2012!
I bet you've seen a thousand different reports the last couple of days about things that happened in 2011... And here's another one! What are the most memorable things to you that happened in the past year?

For me, the year has gone by so fast... I started this blog in April. I'm very pleased that I did because I got to meet some very nice people and got the chance to do some wonderful things! Like for example these events:

Elizabeth Hurley at Maasmechelen Village...

Bloggers day at Antwerp

Forever 21 at Brussels

These are just a few of so many lovely events!

Next are holidays! My New Year's resolution of 2011 was to go on as many citytrips as possible! ;) I went to London, Paris, Barcelona ... and two little cities in Greece, Rethymnon and Chania...

Krizia and me at Paris

Krizia and I at Chania

We had so much fun on both holidays!

You might have noticed that I like going to concert and discover all kind of new music!
I've been to a few concerts this year: Taylor Swift, Katy Perry, Bruno Mars, Rihanna...
I think my favorite was definitely Taylor, although Rihanna really surprised me too!

So many songs, so hard to choose which one is the best of 2011 to me... Skyscraper by Demi Lovato, Shake it off by Florence and the Machine, Last Friday Night by Katy Perry, Monster by Paramore... It goes on and on....
The best movie? My top 3 is The Hangover, Water For Elephants and Red Riding Hood!

Some other memorable things that happened and got to me...
- The death of Amy Winehouse, Steve Jobs, Elizabeth Taylor -
- The disaster at Pukkelpop in Belgium. There was a huge storm during a big festival, 5 people died that day... A lot of my friends were at the festival -
- Norwegian attacks where 69 got killed -
- Crises in Greece and all over the world -

I know the last list isn't happy news... Unfortunatley it happened!

Well I hope I can write a lot of good news next year! ;)
