Sustainable fashion & lifestyle at De Nieuwe Natie

Sustainable fashion is the next big thing in fashion world. I prefer to support local shops instead of large chain stores and I’m really into Belgian and sustainable fashion. Although I must say a lot of people think sustainable fashion is boring. This week I attended a bloggers night at De Nieuwe Natie. For those who don’t know this concept, I’ll quickly explain what it’s about. De Nieuwe Natie gives creative entrepreneurs a chance to showcase their work. It’s a pop-up store, all the brands have their own corner for a certain period. This evening was all about sustainable fashion and lifestyle. If you’re one…

How to take lifestyle photography to the …

[dropcap]I[/dropcap] remember that moment when my parents gave me my first camera. I was 13 years old or something like that and really liked photography. Every little detail matters, so I’ve been experimenting with photography for hours: adjusting the lighting, using different backgrounds, etc. And 9 years later, I’m doing exactly what I love: making product photos for my clients. It’s such a fun thing to do, you can be creative and experiment with a lot of different things. I’m also doing streetstyle photoshoots for clients. But what’s the secret behind a good product photo? And how do you edit photos? There’s no…

Shop online & save money I Discount codes

The weather in Belgium isn’t great at this moment. On rainy days like this one I like to stay inside and do some online shopping in the evening. Crawling under a blanket, a cup of tea and my favourite online shops. Yes, that’s what I’m going do to this evening! I love online shopping, but I’m actually not quite a big spender. But I’m very happy if my favourite items are discounted. The only problem is that I always forget to check if there are any discounts available and suddenly the item is sold out…. The struggle is real. Luckily there are sites…

Pretty Pandora @ Brandfield

I remember that moment I discovered Pandora. I was a little younger -14 years old or something like that- and I told my mom that I really liked these Pandora charms. A year ago my mom and dad gave me a bracelet en 2 charms as a gift for Christmas. I couldn’t be more happy! Since that moment I’ve been collecting charms. Every charm has a special meaning to me. I have the ‘family tree’ that my mom and dad gave me, 2 beautiful charms of my boyfriend (he really knows what I like) and 2 of my boyfriend’s parents. A week ago…
