OUTFIT | Getting ready

I already started to get ready for tonight a few hours ago so I don't have to rush and I can enjoy the last day/night of the year.
Daan and I are going to have dinner and a little party with some of his friends. We decided to dress up a bit but nothing too fancy, hence the black & silver and not the usual party dress. 
I wish you all a great New Year's Eve and an amazing start of 2015!


LIFE | Instagram #12

It's been a really long time since I gave you guys an Instagram update but there are a few reasons for : I've been in bed a couple of weeks with the flu and 2 sore throats -you could already read that here-, I forgot to take some and sometimes I just wasn't in the mood.. Winter blues starting early? I don't know. What I do know is that I'm going to try to keep you guys more updated. 
I'm already wishing you a nice, cozy time with your loved ones! 
Happy holidays! 


FASHION | Olivia Wilde for H&M Conscious Exlusive Collection

H&M's new Conscious Exlusive Collection is in the making and guess who they chose to be the face of this collection? Olivia Wilde, the beautiful American actress. 
Olivia is more than just a pretty face who acts, she's also a fighter for the environment so this collaboration between H&M and Wilde isn't a surprise. 
The different touches from all over the world have to give the collection that 'universal theme'. The collection exists out of hand drawn graphics, snake/nature prints, earth tones and simple lines -underneath you can see a preview. I think it looks really good, what's your opinion?
The launch date is only on April 16th so we still got to wait a bit but for a beautiful, fashionable and ecological collection we're willing to wait, no? 
"Sustainability is one of my biggest passions. I'm proud to be the face of H&M Conscious Exclusive, a collection which shows the stylishness of sustainability." - Olivia Wilde


OUTFIT | Sneak peek : Homiés

Here is a little peek of an outfit I wore lately. 
I have more photos but there is something wrong with the focus of my camera. Guess I'll have to shoot this outfit again. 
In the meantime, any guesses on what I wore with this jumper?

jumper : Modemusthaves // ring : Asos // 


LIFE | 21

Today is my 21st birthday, woop woop! I can now say that I am a "twenty-something".
Knowing myself and being completely honest, I am a pretty difficult person to make really happy, also on my birthday.. Not my best and most beautiful quality but it all starts with acknowledging it, right? While we're being honest, let's continue. This 'quality' of mine isn't easy for the people around me but it isn't easy for me as well. Always those expectations.. 
On a positive note, I think I'm not only older on paper but also wiser in real life : I haven't got the most presents (yet) neither have I done anything special yet but I'm pretty happy already :) -of course this didn't happened overnight, just me developing I guess.
To a happy year! 


BEAUTY | Meet the new face of Estée Lauder

If you're a bit into fashion, you've definitely already seen her. She walked in multiple big fashion shows since her debut on the Marc Jacobs fall 2014 runway show, you see her in almost every fashion magazine and she's a much wanted target by the paparazzi : Kendall Jenner, the new face of Estée Lauder. 
Tip : on the official website of the beauty brand you can find and shop Kendall her favorites.


CRAVING | 10 x birthday mix and match

A mix and match of presents I'd like to get : 
Baublebar Third Eye Ear Jackets (sold out at the moment)
Ladurée Macarons (doesn't have to be Ladurée but it would be nice since I've never ate those)
Zara Gift Card
H&M Gift Card 

LIFE | The past 3 weeks

The past three weeks there wasn't much activity on the blog and here is why.. 
I started the last week of October on a good note with a streetstyle post of PFW and I had planned the rest of the week with different kinda posts, even an outfit (or maybe two). But it was too good to be true - what was I even thinking?! I got really sick Tuesday evening; sore throat, headache/migraine, fever, coughing, pain everywhere,.. Long story short : I looked and felt like crap. I've barely been out of bed for 7 days and didn't even touch my PC once.  
I also had to miss out on a few blogger events and I was quite upset about it to be honest. I know I know, there will be plenty events in the future but still..it just sucked. 
I finally started to feel better so I went out of the house for the first time in 10 days. Not such a good idea since I got a sore throat again.. I got antibiotics again and am starting to feel better but I'm not leaving the house yet, just to be sure.. 
Anyway, I wanted to let you know why I wasn't really around. 
Hopefully your weeks were better than mine! Try to prevent as much as possible and if you still catch something, listen to your body! 


FASHION | Cara Delevingne for Topshop

Mix a Britain shop with a Britain model and you get an amazing campaign! 
Don't believe me? Watch these photos of Cara Delevingne for this year's Christmas campaign from Topshop. 
The collection is very festive, think glitters sparkles fur etcetera. 
If you want to spread your sparkles on a party, I'd definitely recommend you to take a look at the collection
Go ahead, steal the show! 



Let's continue with things I wouldn't mind getting for my birthday. 
This time I made a selection of books that I would love to read. You may know this or not but I'm a true bookworm! I can't count how many books I have, I've got all different types of books : thrillers, romans, tragedies, educatives that aren't for school, fashion, lifestyle, etcetera. 
Most of the books on my wishlist now are fashion related, with a few exceptions. 
Any books that you want? Suggestions are always welcome :) 


FASHION | PFW SS15 streetstyle

Here I am with the last part of my fashion week SS15 streetstyle series. 
Paris is always the city that closes fashion month so here are some of my favorite streetstyle photos shot in the city of love. 
I must admit that I'm already a bit excited for February.. Anyone else?



It's now 2,5 months ago that I moved and I still don't have a proper closet -oops! 
Yes, I have a closet but it's way too small so I'm living out of this closet, a big suitcase, some clothing racks and another part of my clothes is hanging in my mum her closet. Wow, this sounds like I have TONS of clothes and I still feel like I've got nothing to wear.. 
Truth is that I didn't really mind having my clothing in different places but now I'm getting tired of it since most of the time I can't find what I want to wear. Pretty frustrating. 
The plan is that I'm going to keep my 'old closet' for my coats and shoes and that I'll buy a new Ikea PAX closet for the rest. I'm pretty sure you've seen/heard of the PAX system before but a bit of inspiration never hurt anyone! 
PS : If you have a PAX closet, or something that looks a like, and you've got some tips, don't forget to leave a comment ;) 
PPS : The head image of this post is the closet of Aimee Song from the blog Song of Style, it isn't the PAX system but she also used things from Ikea and let's be honest, how could I leave such an amazing closet out of this post?! 


Let's talk about what every fashionista is talking about : the Alexander Wang collection for H&M. The past months there were speculations and we got some teasers from celebs like RiRi but a few days ago the actual collection has been released. It's a quite sporty and edgy collection that only exists out of three colors : white, grey and black. I am not such a fan of this style so that's why there is only one 'real' clothing piece between my favorites. My two fav's out of these six ones are the bikini and the towel, here comes my love for summer again ;) 
What do you think of the collection? Is it your style? 

Since you've probably already read about this collection somewhere on the internet and it isn't exlusive anymore (not that I ever get scoops or something but you know what I mean), there will be another post on the blog later today so don't forget to come back! 



FASHION | MFW SS15 streetstyle

Time for some inspiration from the past Milan fashion week. Every year I notice the same thing over and over again : I always have the least streetstyle photos I like from in Milan. Why? I have no idea. 
What I do know is that this skirt above is an amazing piece! Look at those patterns, look at those colours, ..


CRAVING | Only two more months..

In exactly two months I will turn 21, YAY! 
I don't know how you feel about this age but to me it feels like a pretty special birthday. I can't really explain why but I guess I associate it with being a 'real adult'. 
Until it's my bday, I will share some wishlists with things I wouldn't mind having from all price ranges.


FASHION | Chanel makes a statement

Showing your new collection to the fashionpeople in Paris a big deal? Yes, but not enough for mister Lagerfeld. After he showed the SS15 collection, Karl and his models started a protest on the runway.
We all know that the king of fashion has an opinion on, well pretty much everything and that he isn't afraid to share his thoughts with the world but this.. This is what I call a statement! 


LIFE | Because I'm happy

Hello sweets, how are you? As you can probably tell from the title of this post and the picture above -which is an old one by the way and yes I am wearing clothes, strapless ;) - I am pretty happy today. 
There are multiple reasons for my happiness : I'm really glad September is over hence it is the month I like the least, like I already told you, for personal reasons. Anyways on to the next reason, fall still hasn't really hit Belgium yet which I reaaaally like - I love the sun and heat just way too much. And last but not least, I finally found two new beautiful bras today! Us girls like some beautiful lingerie, don't we? 
All I can say is that I hope you had a great day as well and that I hope October will continue like this..


FASHION | LFW SS15 streetstyle

Here I am again with fashion week street style. This time it is from London. 
I know we're already coming to an end of the whole fashion week month craziness but the photographers don't always have the time to put the images online immediately so I'm also running a bit later. 
I opted for this photo of Olivia Palermo as the head image of this post simply because I am in loooove with this dress coat by Matthew Williamson. Oh, and those mirrored glasses really finish the look.


FASHION | NYFW SS15 streetstyle

New York Fashion Week is over and this means that I'm going to do a recap of the best, most beautiful streetstyle photos. After the jump there is a ton of inspiration waiting for you!
London Fashion Week has also come to an end so stay tuned for some British fashion!


OUTFIT | Boho maxi dress

After the amount of rain we had in August it's even more nice that the sun is shining and the fact that the temperatures are enjoyable -although it might be a bit warmer for me, but no complaining. 
Seems like we're having an Indian summer! What better way to celebrate this and wear my new boho maxi dress, which I got from my grandma and grandpa by the way, 
I can imagine that this dress isn't everyone's cup of tea, incluiding the boyfriend, but according to the weather forcast we still have some sunny days to come which means I can shoot other outfits.
In the meanwhile you can check previous posts and follow me on different social media channels : 

dress : Modemusthaves // sunglasses : Asos // bag : Modemusthaves // sandals : Asos //


LIFE | Instagram #11

No words today. I'm going to take a break of my Monday-words-posts and will just write one when I feel like it. That doesn't mean I've got no post for you, I think it is time for a new update from my favorite social media platform, Instagram. I guess you could say I'm an insta-addict; scrolling through my feed, pressing the like button, leaving comments, watch closely what my favorite bloggers/instagrammers are posting, etc. 
Let's take a look at my recent Instagram photos, and don't forget to follow me @lyndesloovere ;) 


CRAVING | Jewelry

I'm craving lots of jewelry lately. Here are some of the pieces I wouldn't mind having and that are affordable. Actually, two pieces you see in this collage are already on it's way to me, I couldn't help it. And to be honest, there are four more pieces that I really really want.. 
First row : 
Second row : 
Third row : 


WORDS | Demons past midnight

You know those nights you can't sleep because your brain starts to think and it just won't stop? Yeah, me too.. 
I've already told you not too long ago that I am a real overthinker. I'm pretty much an overthinker 24/7 but when I go to bed and it is time to sleep, it's like these demons get even more awake! 
To me, there are different kind of demons : the ones who go away pretty quickly but you also got the ones that are stuck into your brain and almost go lead a life by themselves and eat up bits and pieces of your happiness. Gosh, how I hate them. 
I mostly try to abandon them by reading a book -quite a bookwurm over here- and writing down what I'm thinking about but sometimes nothing seems to work. So..that's why I am asking you if you have any other tips? 
PS : I'm not the only one dealing with this, right? 


FASHION | Olivia Palermo x Aquazzura

“Olivia and I have a very similar vision of shoes. She is a real style icon and has amazing knowledge about shoes and accessories. We wanted to create a capsule collection of the styles every woman needs in her closet, interpreted with the Aquazzura aesthetic and seen through the eyes of Olivia.”  - Edgardo Osorio

If you're a bit of a fan of Olivia Palermo, then you've probably already heared about her collaboration with the Florence-based brand Aquazurra. If not and you love shoes I suggest you keep on reading!
There are multiple reasons why Olivia teamed up with this brand : OP has been a supporter and wearer of Aquazurra since the start of the brand and since that moment on she is also friends with the designer and founder, Egardo Osorio. 
As the friendship also turned into a partership, Palermo and Osorio got ideas from Edgardo's archives and Olivia's closet with as result a six piece collection. 
You can buy the shoes in only 12 stores around the world but you can also buy them exclusively online at Net-A-Porter -thank god for online shopping! You should definitely take a look -you can find an overview of the shoes after the jump plus a video- and if you want to buy a pair, don't wait too long because some are already sold out!
I honestly love every single pair, too bad it isn't really my budget.. What's your opinion on Olivia's latest designer collaboration? 


BLOG | Three years

Three balloons, representing the three years that I'm blogging right now. The exact birthday was actually a few days ago but I didn't find the time nor the feeling to blog about it. A celebration should be all about fun but since life isn't just fun I couldn't post about it, it would have felt wrong, so I decided to wait a bit. 
Maybe you've noticed that it's been quiet around here, especially regarding personal outfits. Sometimes you don't feel like dressing up and posing in front of the camera, days in a pj can feel as good and sometimes even better. 
We're September now and it is my least favorite month to be honest but I think I can say that I'm back. Back to blogging, from personal outfits to beauty reviews to inspirational posts. 
I really hope I'm back -can't say it for sure, emotions can be like a rollercoaster..- and that's why I decided to hold pink balloons in the air; pink for that girly touch, balloons to make it festive, and looking up to represent that I want Blonde Butterflies to go 'up' and grow.
Thanks to each and everyone of you who reads the blog, is following me via one of the many social media platforms and/or leaves a comment. Thank you, the blog wouldn't be the same without you! 


FASHION | Isabel Marant Etoile leopard booties for fall 2014

Isabel Marant, a well-known designer that pretty much creates a hype every season.
These amazing looking booties -they're in leopard print so there is no doubt about it that I love them- are in the new Isabel Marant Etoile collection for this fall. 
I'm not going to buy these beauties since I already have leo ankle boots -with quite a story behind them, read it here. 
I can totally recommend buying boots like this, they spice up every outfit and are a statement on it's own. 
Interested in buying them? The more specific name is 'Dewar Leopard-Print Calf Hair Ankle Boots'. 


WORDS | I think

I don't really know where to start.. 
You probably may have noticed that I'm not posting frequently since a few months although I set myself a schedule. I don't know what's wrong with me; I have ideas but on the other hand I feel like I have no inspiration whatsoever. Plus, the many ideas that I have (and have written down) don't seem to actually make it into a published blogpost. But I guess that's because of the move and other personal, energytaking stuff. 
I feel like a really bad blogger at the moment, even more when you know that the third anniversary of Blonde Butterflies is coming up, and the more I think about it the more I stress about it and nothing changes. 
I'm going to try my best to think as little as possible about it and maybe everything will fall into place again? Tips for stress/a writersblock/inspirationblock/..whatever you want to call it, are more than welcome! 


INSPIRATION | Bright outfits

Some bright outfits for inspiration! Why? Because I dress myself way too dark, almost always in simple colors like black grey and white, and I really want to spice up my outfits and wardrobe. Plus, we're still in the summertime people, let's enjoy it as much as we can in every single way! 
Maybe you can use the inspiration as well?! Click on 'read more' 


CRAVING | 4 designer bags

If you know me a little bit, you know that I'm a true bag girl! I just love bags, they are the perfect accessory and you can never have too many in my eyes. 
There are four designer bags that I really really want so I often check Ebay and Vestiaire etc. to see if they got one of my list that is still in a very good condition and that I'm willing to pay to price for -because let's not forget that they would be second hand and so used. 
No luck so far unfortunately.. If you sell any of these, leave a comment or send me an e-mail :) 
Any bags you're really craving? Here is my list : 
- Balenciaga Giant 21 "Work" in papyrus with silver hardware
- Chanel 2.55 in black with gold
- Givenchy medium Antigona in black crocodile
- Stella McCartney Falabella bag in gray faux python with three chains


BEAUTY | Colored hair

We all know people who color/highlight their hair -maybe even you- but not everybody knows someone with a "strange", special, unique haircolor. I know nobody, except for my hairdresser who changes her hair every five seconds. I guess she already had every possible color. 
I don't like it on everyone but I absolutely adore Nicole Richie with her purple/blue hair! When she's wearing an all black or white outfit or just a jeans with a simple white tee, her hair is always the finishing touch. 
I wouldn't color my hair in purple or something, I'm just too scared I won't get back to blonde again. 
Would you risk it and take the jump? Plus I'm very curious on your opinion about special haircolors! 
PS : I didn't forget about the review of five beauty products, some have asked me months ago (oops), but I have never done this before so I'm trying to figure out how to take the best photos, so you can see at as real as possible. 


WORDS | Daniell Koepke about life

I'll just leave you with these words since they are so beautiful and enough to think about. 
Have a great week. xo 


LIFE | Update

So.. It's been quite silent here on the blog but that's because of some different reasons : 
- I moved a week ago so had no time to blog
- I'm EXHAUSTED from moving (packing, cleaning, packing, cleaning, sleeping, packing, moving, unpacking, ...)
- the blog isn't working out as I want it to; I don't like the lay-out etc. and I'm definitely not an expert with HTML and stuff so I really need help with that but everybody is living their own lives so it's pretty difficult to find someone you know who can help you as well. But I really need a change from blog. 

Tomorrow I'm leaving with my boyfriend and his family on a vacation so I'll have a break from blogging, all the moving stuff, etc. I think it will be good for me. 
If I have internet, I'll definitely be active on Instagram @lyndesloovere


CRAVING | Red lipstick

Long time no see! A lot has happened in the meanwhile but that's for another post, right now I'm just too tired and too much craving of a beautiful warm red lipstick. 
I made this collage of Poppy Delevingne, Elien from the blog Dogs and Dresses and an unknown girl (the right). Three beauties spicing up their look with red lips. 
I really want a lipstick like the girl on the right but since I'm absolutely no make-up expert I need help. If you have a tip for me, regarding brands or colors, please let me know! Oh and if you know who this gorgeous girl is, don't forget to let me know. 
Enjoy your weekend!

WORDS | Chaos

Two days later than usual, read further to know the reason.. 
Lately, there is chaos everywhere : in my own life but also in the world. I'd like to take a moment to explain it to you and dig a bit deeper. 
The chaos in my own life is for obvious reason : the big move I told you last week about. I forgot how intense, hard and chaotic moving is. Packing, cleaning, what to keep, what to give or throw away, etcetera. I am completely exhausted from all this and the real move still has to happen! Luckily we know some strong men who are handy as well ;) By Tuesday I should be completely moved so still one more week of chaos to go. Afterwards I'm going to give myself the time to pack everything out and to decorate it the way I want to. 
About the chaos in the world.. I know that there is always a war/fight going on somewhere but last week all this mess hit me in the face again by the rampage of the MH17 plane, immediately followed by chaos in the Gaza area. It was a smack in the face, like I needed to be reminded about it. It's almost a week ago but I'm still shocked. I don't know anyone of the victims but my heart truly goes out to all the people who lost someone they loved because of the chaos/mess in this world, last week and every single other day. Like I wrote on my Instagram "Spread love, not hate." 
Hopefully, one day people will find peace in chaos.


WORDS | Move on

Like I said in yesterday's post, I've got some quite big news to announce. 
In about 10 days I'll live somewhere else; another house, a new space for myself, a different neighborhood,.. Pretty much everything will be different so I will move on from the house I live in right now. It's been a chapter of 7 years and very soon I'll turn the page. 
There are lots of feelings when it comes to moving (on) : happy, sad, relieved, stressed, excited,.. 
But all in all I am a Sagittarius and they are known as people who like changes from time to time. I'll let you know if it's true to my belief.
Let me know if you want to stay updated on the move! Plus tips are always welcome :)


LIFE | Instagram #10

Here I am again with an Instagram update. The photos are from May, June and half of July. 
You can follow me on Instagram at @lyndesloovere. 
More photos after the jump! 
PS : Got some big news tomorrow so make sure to check out the blog! 


FASHION | Kate Moss in all white?!

If you've seen some photos of her, no editorial or campaign photos but her daily life looks, you can't deny that she loves black. Most of her outfits are rather dark. That's why I was so 'shocked' when I stumbled upon this picture of her on Tumblr. 
Moss in a completely white look? I had never seen that before! (except on her wedding day) 
I must admit that I like it but I'm still more a fan of her usual black looks. 
Which outfits do you prefer on Kate, the black or the white ones? 


OUTFIT | Striped bodycon

Hi lovelies, another outfit from my holiday in Tunesia! I can't believe it's exactly one month ago that I left. Like I wrote last week, time can be/feel so different. I'm having this right now as well : I feel like I was just enjoying my holiday but on the other hand it's feels like months ago! 
Unfortunately I'm writing this from rainy Belgium, which sucks to say the least. But looking at these photos also makes me happy because this is an outfit I really like. Quite simple but I think it is because I've been looking for a black and white striped bodycon dress for so long and 3 days before I took off, I finally found it! Plus I could wear my beloved fringe sandals again. 


WORDS | Forgetfulness

Forgetfulness is a form of freedom, a quote by Kahlil Gibran. 
I have to say that I completely agree with him. I am one of the worst people I know in forgetting things, which can be a blessing or not. Often it isn't. It really isn't nice when you still know the reason of a fight when it's already a few years ago. Imagine that you're in the now and you're having an argument about something and your brain makes connections so that you remember the things from all these years ago. Automatically all the feelings that were there in the past, come above again -sometimes in other proportions, sometimes still as mad/angry/sad/disappointed/.. 
I really wish I could forget things more easily, my mind wouldn't be such a chaos and I would be more relaxed. 
Am I the only one dealing with this problem? If you know something that could help me with this, please let me know. It doesn't matter if you're also dealing with this or not, if you think you might know something, please leave a comment or send me an e-mail.
P.S. : This quote is meant for people like me, who don't suffer from an illness like Alzheimer, dementia, Parkinson, etc. My grandma has all three of them so I know how worse it is. Lots of strength and courage to everyone who has to deal with an illness like this and also to their beloved ones. 


INSPIRATION | Happy 4th!

Happy fourth of July to all my American readers! 
I hope you had a great day and I wish you a very nice weekend, enjoy the independence! 


OUTFIT | Peacock print

First of all : happy July everyone! June wasn't such a good month on different levels, incluiding the blog so let's hope that this month will be better. 
Over to the outfit right now. This is what I wore on the first day in Tunesia, when my mum and I decided to go take a look at the promenade. It was actually really nice to have a promenade at our hotel, it reminded me a bit of the Côte d'Azur with the only difference being in Tunesia instead of France. 
We were just taking some photos and suddenly a man came to us with a little turtle and a chameleon, no kidding! Since I am scared of almost all animals, I didn't touch them or something but I just quickly posed for  a photo with them, to run away pretty fast after we got the pic haha. 
And oh, I loved the benches on the promenade! The printed tiles are so beautiful, they reminded me a little bit of Barcelona :)
I think I'll leave you with this text because we already have Tunesia, France and Spain in this post. Plus I am watching the WorldCup game Belgium - USA right now and it's getting too much with all these countries from different continents ;) 


WORDS | Time

Today I woke up, looked at my phone and saw that it is the last day of June. Can you believe it?! 
Tomorrow we're the first of July and half of 2014 has already passed! I seriously can't believe it. 
When I think about it, it feels like a lot happened the past half year but at the same time I feel like nothing happened. Do you know that opposing feeling? 


OUTFIT | Printed trousers

Two weeks ago I was in Tunesia -I haven't told you guys this- and this is one of the outfits I wore for dinner. 
I don't think you've ever seen me with trousers like these before but these are so comfortable! Seriously, if I find a similar pair with the same fit in a nice color or print I will definitely buy one, or more. 
More holiday-outfits to come so stay updated via one of my social media channels :)


WORDS | Summer

Summer has officially started. Time to celebrate and enjoy my favorite season of the year! 


FASHION | Olivia Palermo for Westward Leaning

Olivia Palermo has been wearing Westward Leaning sunglasses since the start in 2012 so it's no surprise that Westward Leaning is very happy with this collaboration. They say they couldn't have asked for a more loyal or stylish informal brand ambassador. 
What OP says about the collab? " Westward Leaning sunglasses are effortlessly chic and flattering to just about any ensemble, which has made this collaboration a dream.". 
The collection exists out of eight pairs of sunglasses in WL's classic Wayfarer shape, all with the iconic "muted gold" reflective lenses. They all feature one of three distinct side materials, each laid at the temple : blackened red wood, teal sea glass or gold pieces. Westward Leaning their sunglasses, specifically the materials are always telling a story and this time it's no different. These three unique materials are inspired by Olivia's extensive travels and unique aesthetic perspective. 
All eight pairs cost $210, where every $10 is donated to ADCAM's Masaai Project, a charity near to OP her heart. 
Enough talking, let's take a look and perhaps buy a pair? You can never have too many plus they offer free worldwide shipping!
Oh, let me know which one has your preference! My favorite is the Saint Germain.

INSPIRATION | #mycalvins

A few months ago, I couldn't scroll trough my Instagram-feed without seeing a photo with the hashtag #mycalvins : a new hype was born. 
The first one I saw was from Kendall Jenner and since that moment on, more and more people -models, it-girls, fashionbloggers- showed off their CK underwear. 
These sets are pretty different from my usual underwear but I must say that I'm sold on the grey one! 
Whether you like it or not, you have to admit that this is a pretty good PR-stunt from Calvin Klein, no?


WORDS | Karl Lagerfeld about photographs

I really like the way mister Lagerfeld thinks about photographs. I actually completely agree with him. You can always try to retake a photo but there will always be something different. 
I'm so happy that I live in the time of all these different sorts of cameras so I can take a picture like I want and, very important, also a lot. To be honest, I couldn't live without my cameras anymore. But I have to admit that I love looking into photo albums with snapshots from the past. Some sort of nostalgia I guess.. Doesn't everyone likes a bit of nostalgia?


WORDS | Be kind

I don't know if I told you this but last year I followed a mindfulness 'course' of 8 weeks. I can not specifically say why I did this because it had multiple reasons. 
One of the things that always came back was "to be kind". Not only to others but also to yourself. 
Why am I writing this now? Last week my blogplanning didn't go as I had in mind and this week will probably also not go as I want. 
Being completely honest with you, it bothers me, a lot. When I think about it, I can get so angry at myself, while most of you probably didn't even realise it. So I need to keep saying to myself "Lyn, be kind to yourself.". 
And you should also be (more) kind to yourself (and others). 
PS : I already want to apologize if the blog won't be updated as planned this week.
