Hunkemöller – Pretty lingerie

16.10.2017

Hi sweeties,

I’m very proud to announce you that I have been nominated for the Hunkemöller Blogger Awards, category: Lingerie…
Please read my blog post below and if you like it, vote for me on the Hunkemöller site. (in the category LINGERIE #4)
Hunkemöller Blogger Awards

 

All of us ladies, we all like pretty lingerie, don’t we?? My favorite shop for the prettiest lingerie sets is Hunkemöller.
I have a Hunkemöller shop nearby so that’s pretty seductive…

What do you think of this new lingerie set?
I fell in love with the beautiful blue-grey color. It’s perfect for the fall and the upcoming winter. So in love with the fine lace and the pretty details. Did you spot the cute little light blue bow ties??
Hunkemöller has many shops all over Belgium, but they also have a perfect website! You can order your favorite items and they deliver them at home, in a beautiful box, wrapped in lovely silk paper… a present for yourself!!
Because I don’t have such a big bosom, I prefer my bras to have filled cups. That gives me a better feeling and makes me more confident.
And isn’t that something we all want?? For me, the perfect lingerie is the first step towards more self confidence. When I wear a lovely lingerie set like this, I already feel a lot prettier.

I think it’s really important to choose the right lingerie underneath your outfit. It can make your outfit just that little bit better because your bosom and butt will look at their best!
During these fall days I love to wear just the pretty lingerie underneath a big soft knitted sweater, like the pink one in the picture… it really fits so well with the colors of this lingerie set.

Go visit the website of Hunkemöller, and pick out your favorite lingerie set…
Sooo many lovely choices!! I’m curious which color & style you prefer.

Lots of love,

Lena

Items’14: Knitwear made in Antwerp.

04.10.2017

Hi sweeties,

New blogpost… all warm and cozy! 😊
A few weeks ago I had the opportunity to meet the lovely Claudia de Vos from Items’14 Antwerp. What a lovely, inspiring and enthusiastic lady. She sells and distributes the most lovely hand knitted cardigans, scarfs, jumpers, beanies… Really, I fell in love with them immediately… So soft, warm, cozy & classy!! She works with natural materials like mohair, silk and Alpaca.
Between all those lovely cardigans I chose two: a long, very soft, dark blue one, and the Bubble Bubble cardigan.
They’re both very different, but oh so nice. It’s a pleasure wearing those hand made cardigans… Wanna take a look at how I’ve styled them??

I’ve combined the long blue cardigan with a silk blouse, also from Items’14 Antwerp and a ripped jeans.
Underneath, my cool black boots. It gives the look a tough appearance.


The Bubbles Bubbles Cardigan is a true HIT on Instagram… And rightly so!

I’ve combined this one with a black leather pair of trousers, also from Items’14 Antwerp. They actually fit wonderful!!
Underneath a white lace top…


Do you also love these comfy hand knitted cardigans?
Tell me: What’s your favorite one??

Lots of love,

Golden booties – Melvin & Hamilton

29.09.2017

Hi sweeties,

In this new blog post, I want to show you my new GOLDEN booties from Melvin & Hamilton. 💫
Yes, really… Shiny, sparkling, golden booties! It was love at first sight…💛💛💛


Melvin & Hamilton is a German brand, by the brothers Karim and Olivier Choukar, who handcraft footwear with a distinctive character… Every pair is so lovely to see, and finished very beautifully with a keen eye for detail.
Between all the lovely pairs, there was one that immediately caught my eye… these golden ones!!
This pair of shoes demands all your attention, they are the eye-catchers of any look. So when I was wondering how to style them…. I was thinking that the rest of my outfit had to be sober, not too many colors, not too bright…
Let’s take a look at how I styled my Golden Booties…


Can’t take my eyes off of them ;o) They are so awesome, and they fit perfectly!!

As you can see; I styled them with a pair of destroyed jeans & a big comfy, knitted sweater. Perfect for the upcoming fall days.🍂 I love these big oversized sweater-looks.
This way the attention is drawn towards the shoes, and not to the clothes. A little golden belt in my jeans matches fine with the shoes. And my favorite Chanel bag is the finishing touch of this look…


Very curious what you all think of this look… Let me know!!

If you like the boots, or another pair from Melvin & Hamilton, you can order your own pair and get €10 discount using my code: LenaxMelvin (valid on all orders above €75, until November 19, 2017)

Lots of ‘golden’ love,

Wide Open Eyes – Estée Lauder

23.09.2017

Hi sweeties,

Time for a new beauty blogpost!
Let me tell you all about the new Advanced Night Repair Eye Concentrate Matrix by Estee Lauder….

Did you know that the skin around your eyes is about 4 times thinner than the skin on the rest of your body??
Which makes it far more vulnerable. Every day your eyes experience over 10.000 micro movements, which can contribute to the look of ageing around your eyes. If each blink of your eye equals one step, then this means your eyes take an 8 kilometer walk every day!!!! 😱
These continuous movements can lead to increased irritation and damage, that can accelerate the appearance of lines, wrinkles and more…

To help you better understand how your eyes move, Estée Lauder has produced an unique video: “See the World with Wide-Open Eyes – a 360° film”.

I had the opportunity of watching this movie with the VR viewer they provided!

This discovery led to the development of the new Advanced Night Repair Eye Concentrate Matrix, a formula with an innovative 360° Matrix Technology that optimally restores and strengthens the skin around the eyes and reduces visible signs of skin ageing such as fine lines and wrinkles, puffiness and dark circles.

I have been testing the new Advanced Night Repair Eye Concentrate Matrix for two weeks now… and these are my findings…

I LOVE IT!!!!
You all know that I’m not in my twenties anymore ;o)) So yes I have wrinkles and lines… But hey, I’m fine with that.
But what bothers me the most is the puffiness of my eyes in the morning!! It’s like I didn’t get any sleep when I wake up… My eyes are swollen and it takes about an hour before that disappears.
BUT since I’ve been using the new Advanced Night Repair Eye Concentrate Matrix by Estée Lauder it’s gone… Really! I’m not joking! My eyes are looking more awake and fresh in the morning.
I also noticed that the skin around my eyes is not so dry anymore, it’s well hydrated and nourished thanks to the double concentrated infusion of Hyaluronic Acid. And so the little lines and wrinkles are softened. I know they will not disappear, but there’s a huge difference even after 2 weeks. The skin around my eyes is firmer and I have a fresher and healthier look!
The bottle also has the 360 degrees massaging applicator that is so fun to use! It feels great and refreshing!

For me it’s a keeper!
The new Advanced Night Repair Eye Concentrate Matrix  has become the favourite part of my daily evening skincare routine!

Lots of love,

Lena

Soft grey look – Repeat Cashmere

17.09.2017

Hello there sweeties!

So happy to show you this new look for fall! In collaboration with Repeat Cashmere.
I received this oh so soft grey cashmere cardigan… I can’t tell you how happy I was when I found it in my mailbox… Love at first sight!
You know, I’m not a jacket lover in the winter, I’d rather wear a cosy cardigan like this one. It will definitely be my favorite the upcoming fall months!

Let’s take a look at how I styled it…

A few weeks ago I already bought this cute little grey hat at H&M… and it turned out to be a perfect match with the grey cardigan! It’s makes the look a little bit more stylish… I love it!!
A white blouse and black pants complete this look. But I didn’t want it to be too ‘old’ or ‘stiff’… So I added my cool boots… ;o))
And that turned out to be perfect finishing touch!

A little surprise for you: You can get a 15% discount for your first order at www.repeatcashmere.com, just click on this link.

Do you love this look as much as I do?? let me know!!

Lots of love,

Lena

Outfit: These cut open boots…

04.09.2017

Hi sweeties!

It’s September already… Time goes by so fast! School started again, summer is almost over…
And yes, a new season is almost there, FALL🍂

A while ago I fell in love with these cut out boots, you’ve probably seen them on Instagram… And now, I’ve got a pair of my own, from Manfield.

I really LOVE these black cut open boots! They are very comfy!!
You know I like girly dresses but there’s also a cool, tough side to me… ;o))
So let’s take a look at how I’ve styled these boots…

With a black jeans, these boots are awesome! I like to wear some short fishnet stockings in them…
The black combines beautiful with gold, so I added a golden ‘GOLD MINE’ shirt and a gold coloured watch.
A cool, tough look but not too much…

I’m ready for fall, and some nice walks in the forest with my new boots
What do you think of this new look & my new boots??
Let me know sweeties!

Lots of Love,

Fall is just around the corner.

22.08.2017

Hi sweeties!

Did you also enjoy your summer and your summer holiday?? 😎 I had a great time in France…
Although summer is my favourite season, by the end of it I always look forward to the next wonderful season… FALL🍁🍂🌲.
Don’t you love those fall colours, warm woolen cardigans, walks in the forest…
And of course: new collections in all stores! New outfits to wear!
I selected 2 lovely dresses for you at Fashiola!
Gotta love this site: they give you lots of websites in 1 place! So you can create a new look using multiple websites. So handy!!

Let’s have a look…

The first dress is a short black & green one, with flowers. It has lovely ruffled sleeves and a waistbelt. I combined it with my black buckle biker boots, a black bag, also found at Fashiola, and a black hat.
I love this new trend: the combination of a girly dress and cool boots!!
In the fall you can still wear it bare legged, but in winter you could always wear it with a pair of black stockings and a black cardigan or a black leather jacket…

Next look: another flowered dress, but now longer and off-shoulder. I thought the short, studded boots were a better fit with this look. And my new black bag from Fashiola also went perfectly with this look… Let me show you…

Are you ready for the next season?? Take a look at Fashiola.be and create/shop your own Fall-outfits!! 🍁🍂🌳
What do you think of mine? Do you also LOVE the girly dresses in combination with the cool black ankle boots?
Let me know!

Lots of LOVE,

Joy of Matcha

04.08.2017

Hello sweeties,

After a holiday of 4 weeks, I finally found the time for a new blogpost… all about Matcha Tea 🌱💚 from Joy of Matcha.

A long standing tradition of Japanese culture, Matcha Green Tea is the highest quality powdered green tea available.
It’s one of the most powerful super foods on the market today: it’s high in antioxidants, enhances calmness, boosts your concentration, boosts your energy, burns calories, detoxifies the body, …

So you can see it has a lot of healthy benefits… but is it also tasty? I’ve tested this Joy of Matcha 💚
First I made a Matcha green tea:
Add 1 spoon of powder with your special bamboo stick …


A little bit of hot water (not boiling) to dissolve the powder… and then the rest (60-80ml)


Now start whisking with your special bamboo whisker, in a W or M shape to get a soft and silky foam.


Mmmm Matcha Green Tea… I was a little afraid of the taste in the beginning, but I have to say that I like it! It tastes like a strong green tea. You can add a little bit of sugar but that is not necessary.
I also tried to make a Matcha LATTE and I have to admit that it was even better!!


I used the milk creamer of my Nespresso machine to ad some whipped milk.


Really delicious! 😋🌱

Have you ever tasted a Matcha Green Tea or a Matcha Latte??
You can make your own with Joy of Matcha 💚

Lots of Love,

Lena

Opel meets fashion!

05.06.2017

Hi sweeties,

A new blogpost about my wonderful Saturday evening at the Antwerp Fashion show 2017, thanks to OPEL Belgium!

What an evening!! Last Saturday 03/06 OPEL invited me and my friend to the Antwerp fashion show… and they did it in great STYLE 

We were picked up by Opel’s NEW INSIGNIA… and they drove us to the event.
Outside the event, we were introduced to their new car CROSSLAND X….

What a lovely, hip and trendy car!! Love it!
This car is for everybody! But maybe a little more for all modern, independent women who dare to enjoy the good things in LIFE… a nice cup of coffee, taking good care of herself (mentally and physically), taking some time off in nature….

Maybe you’re asking yourself: What’s the link between a car and fashion??
It’s the design process! Designing a car is very similar to creating a fashion collection!
The new CROSSLAND X was co-designed by the Belgian Thibaut Doneux.

I was excited for this event… What was I going to wear???
This was my outfit for that evening….

A midi floral skirt from ZARA!
I combined it with a simple white shirt and a pair af white Adidas sneakers, and my pink FURLA bag… What do you think of it???
(I have gotten many compliments about it that evening… )

We had some VIP tickets for the event… so there was finger food and drinks, and some yummy desert!!
And I also met an Instagram friend Dorien… So nice to finally meet her and her boyfriend!! We had a lovely evening!!

And then the FASHION SHOW…. It was AWESOME!!! So many talented fashion designers of the future!! I really enjoyed every minute of the show!! 
Let’s take a look at some pictures of my lovely night out….

What a great time we had… Thank you OPEL for having us!!

Hope you all enjoyed the pictures of this event, and my outfit of that evening… 

Lots of LOVE,

Lena
