The past month has been super busy once again, as you might have noticed on my instagram. I divided my time between working on my thesis and a few photography jobs, but luckily there was time to catch up with friends and time for a few blogging events with pretty clothes and yummy ice cream. Here’s a little recap of what I’ve been up to, featuring instagram shots and a few photos that you haven’t seen yet!
I had to photograph a construction site but I didn’t come prepared… luckily these shoes from pimkie are water resistant and easy to clean! // another shot of my feet (this time in pony hair loafers from h&m) while I was working on a photography job, this time I had to shoot a party venue that still showed some signs of last night’s fun // on my way to the & other stories opening in one of my favorite pairs of pants (I love printed pants! proof: 1 2 3) and pistol boots lookalikes, another favorite in my closet // I added another pair of animal-inspired shoes to my collection (last month I invested in croco texture and pony hair), lovely h&m espadrilles with a flamingo print on the inside // another construction site on that same day (shoes are still dirty), where it seems like I’m walking on clouds! // Yet another new pair of shoes (oops. I have an excuse, since I didn’t buy any new summer shoes last year!), new loafers had been on my wishlist for a while and when sasha offered 20% discount, I had to click these pink suede shoes home.
Working on my thesis means drinking lots and lots of coffee, luckily my new flatmate’s pantone mug looks pretty on my desk // three new albums (I’m one of those people who stubbornly keeps buying cd’s, yes!) to reward myself for all the hard work: Amatorski’s “From clay to figures”, Oscar and the Wolf’s Entity (I’m obsessed with this album at the moment, so good) and Oaktree’s Chapters (by pure coincidence I ended up at this guy’s home party that same night. Great party and great album!) // home made lemonade (recipe here) to motivate me while spending the days behind my computer (flamingo pricker by zak!designs) // taking a break with coffee and dS magazine and coming across Patricia showing the best shops of Antwerp // sneak peek of my room which you might have seen on facebook already. I’ve promised a room tour so many times but there’s still some things I want to change first, which will have to wait until I have a little bit more time on my hands! (photo by Jaka)
I already posted about the architecture I photographed these past months, but here’s a few shots I took with my phone of the Warande in Turnhout (first photo) and party venue Futur in Turnhout. The second one was taken during a library visit in Leuven (campus library Arenberg).
Magnum opened up a pop-up shot at the Stadsfeestzaal in Antwerp and I was very happy to be invited to join for the opening. I was a bit hesitant (as granddaughter of an ice cream vendor for ice cream brand ‘t Ijsboerke, I have to defend my roots with pride!) but I totally recommend these customizable ice creams. Mine was covered with milk chocolate, rose petals, almonds, white chocolate curls and white chocolate drizzle and was absolutely delicious! // My Tomado shelves from Hema, photographed by Marijke. She came by to ask me about my 5 favorites and my camera collection was one of those. You can find the interview here! // Pretty shopping bag from & other stories. I forgot to take photos during the opening (too many people to talke to (fun!) and a horrible headache (not so much fun)) but I’m sure you’ve seen the beautiful shop all over the blogosphere already. // Unwrapping my brand new white silk shirt // Working on photos I shot of Tiany Kiriloff for belmodo and webshop shoescribe. You can find the result on Tiany’s instagram, the shoescribe instagram and the belmodo site. // Absolutely mrs. K hosted a competition and asked what we’d bring to London. For me: a camera, comfy shoes, my casio watch, ray ban sunglasses and muji notebook and pen. But most importantly: my friends Lien and Dorien! Dorien and I became friends during a school trip to London 10 years ago and we visited London and our friend Lien (who was studying in Portsmouth at the time) again 5 years ago. Which means we need another trip to London this year to celebrate!
Last weekend I had three visitors from my time in Lisbon. I took them to the MAS to see Antwerp from above. // Jaka took this shot of the four of us with his gopro on the MAS rooftop // Nuno and Sma // beautiful concert at Leave Us At Dawn // my friends chatting at the party // our delicious brunch in my garden the next morning // Jaka photographed us saying goodbye to him on the train (as you can see I took some photos with my Diana, hopefully they turned out well and I can show them soon!)
