Happy Sunday babes! I hope you're having a good one. After an emotionally turbulent week, I'm taking some time to unwind and enjoy the good things in life. Yesterday we spent our afternoon cuddling in front of a movie and making tiramisu, and afterwards we cooked up an amazing bolognese together. Today we're probably popping by the Gentse Feesten, and we've got tickets to see Dunkirk on the Kinepolis Brussels Imax screen, which I'm very excited about. Everyone I know who's seen Dunkirk is raving about it, and I love both war movies and basically all the actors in it, so I'm sure I won't be disappointed!

About the outfit: I totally love this. It's what I wore on a particularly smoldering day at the office, and the oversized tee was surprisingly cool and airy considering I generally go for spaghetti straps during heatwaves. The skirt is a really cute new addition to my wardrobe, I'm scared to death of getting dirt on its crisp white fabric, but white is always worth it. And if I mess up, there's always vanish, right? The skirt is from Zan.style, a brand that recently contacted me to see if I wanted to check out their collection. I was enamored with their clean, modern, young yet elegant aesthetic. Lots of pieces that felt relaxed but still chic enough to wear to the office. The quality is also really nice, sheer pieces have great linings, fabrics are nice and the cuts of the garments are flattering. Be sure to check out the individual garment size guides as they are really accurate and differ from piece to piece.

Hope you like the look!

This outfit is totally seasonally inappropriate right now - I mean maybe on a chilly morning if I ditched the coat, but it's full on summer right now and this look dates back from one of those chilly spring days. But it's way too cute to just let it sit in my unused folders. The yellow wall plus that bright blue door is everything, man.

I wore this to my sister's housewarming party, where she also introduced us to the new guy in her life. He's a sweetheart and they're still going strong, but my sister has since had to move out and find a new place to live - just goes to show how much can change in a few short months. Life can throw you the weirdest curveballs. She's a boss who always comes out on top, though. Which is why I got her this Hercules necklace from Onecklace, btw, inspired by the badass that is Hercules Mulligan (Hamilton). I ordered myself a Captain one. 


Name necklaces really are my fav kind of personalized gift to give anyone. Just be sure not to get one in Comic Sans for a font snob.

I have been on a sunglasses-buying-binge lately. I don't know why, but this season there seem to be so many cute pairs of shades out there, and since I wear sunglasses 90% of the time during summer, they are the easiest way to lift an outfit to that next level. Whether it is by adding interest, by making you seem cooler than you are, or by hiding bags under your eyes (my favourite tip to not look undead after 24h of travel) - sunnies do the trick. I've gathered up some of my favourite on-trend options that won't break the bank, but will make you look like an insta-model.

My number one fav this season is the coloured lense aviator. This pair is just $7.99 and available in yellow, blue and pink. I have a pink pair as well as a yellow pair - one pair short of an obsession. But you can call it an infatuation. If aviators don't suit your face (I don't look good in most types of aviators either), here are two other options for that retro tinted lense look. These red cat eye shape tinted shades are super cute, only $9, and also available in 5 other colours. The red is my fav though. Would look hella cute with red lipstick. 

The other option is of course the round John Lennon type frames! Pink always has my heart, but if you want to keep things more mysterious, go for the brown lenses - both just $6. Best option to hide tired eyes (or a resting bitchface). Finally, the $8 round, white frames with black lenses. Very retro, very on trend, and surprisingly hard to pull off. I ordered a pair off Forever21 and looked like a bug eyed alien, but I'm determined to keep looking until I find a shape that works for me. Maybe slightly elongated into a cat-eye like shape. If you have any tips, send em my way!

Are you still lusting after a particular type of sunglasses?

Beauty: shiny locks with Redken Diamond Oil Glowdry

Beauty: shiny locks with Redken Diamond Oil Glowdry

Let me just come out and say it: bleaching your hair does not make it shinier, healthier or easier to style. And yet, most of us go through with it at some point in our lives, whether it is to try a bright colour, to hide our grays or to go blonde. I'm currently going through a blonde period and I'm absolutely loving most parts of it. I love how I look better in warm based colours now (give me all the rose gold jewelry), and the beachy vibe is perfect for summer. 

However, while I used to be able to let my hair airdry and have it look, well, pretty good, this is not the case anymore. My locks look the best by far if I either blowdry for a sleek look, or if I want a more casual look: if I let my ends dry naturally while my hair is up in a bun (great way to get those pretty, beachy waves). I particularly need to baby my ends. Even though they have benefited greatly from the Smartbond treatment I got during my third round of highlights - my hair actually feels and looks healthier than it did before those highlights - I still try to limit heat damage to a minimum by using the right protecting and smoothing products. Hair oil has become my best bud.

I was recently sent the new Redken Diamond Oil Glowdry range to test, and when I saw the results I knew I had to tell you guys about it. Let's take a look!
