Under the Umbrella

I’m surprised I haven’t invested yet in several umbrellas that are funny, sweet or pretty to go with different outfits. Surprised because it’s basically the number one accessory to have here in Belgium. Yet I have none (this one’s borrowed from a friend), guess I prefer to get all soaked and get frizzy hair. Maybe I don’t have one because I always forgot them on the bus, train or at people’s home. Anyway, here are some more gray, foggy shots from beautiful Belgium :) Since we don’t have perpetual sunshine and lovely palm trees in the background, maybe you’ll enjoy this castle as a picturesque setting.

I’m a bit excited today, I’m about to take off and go to my first magazine shoot today. A bit scary but mostly fun! This was another part of the news I’ve been waiting to share :) I will keep you updated and give more details when the magazine comes out. Have a great Monday!



Event/ Filippa K

25 02 2011 / BY Brunette Blogging

If you follow me on Twitter, you already know that I attended the opening of the Filippa K store in Leuven last night. This new shop (on the corner of the Brusselsestraat and Grote Markt), carries the collection for women and men. I had a great time, there were a lot of other bloggers and press, it’s always so nice to meet these people in real life. Here’s a selection of my best shots from the store (not easy with my little camera!) and some fun pieces from the collection.

It’s a good thing to have some friends around who can take your picture whilst you’re taking pictures :) In the second picture below there’s me, sipping on (very strong) Cosmopolitan, the fabulous fashion folks Elspeth (Glam*it) and MichaĆ«l (Belmodo.tv). The YSL rings are mine & Elspeth’s. Great minds think alike!

Partay! Thanks UPR for the wonderful event, free drinks & food and oh yes, the goodiebag!

I’ve included some pictures that were taken by the professional photographers, in case you want to get a better idea of what the store really looks like. All pictures below are by Filip De Smet.

Blogging ladies: Stylelab, Imelda & myself.

I’ll post some extra pictures on my Facebook page! Have a lovely weekend, I hope I can finally catch some sleep, ’cause I’m having so much trouble sleeping these days. See you on Monday :)
