Armin van Buuren concert

I went to a concert of Armin van Buuren previous weekend and it was cray-cray! :) It was my first trance party, not usually the kind of music i'm listening to, but i had alot of fun with these beautiful people! The concert was 5 hours long, so we litteraly partied all night long. I had a great first timer, on to the next one :)

Editorial love: Joan Smalls styled by Anna Dello Russo for Vogue Japan December 2014

This is my one of my absolute favourite editorial shoots from previous months! The shoot was a cover story from the december issue of Vogue Japan photographed by Giampaolo Sgura and styled by Anna Dello Russo. I love how she styled the different colors and patterns together, i get so much inspiration from them! :)

Blazer & sneakers

Aloha! It's almost weekend again, time flies! I'm really busy at the moment. Mostly working at schoolstuff, we have to brace ourselves, exams are coming! :) So i'm thankfull to be able to get a breather in the weekend. What are you guys planning to do? I'm going to a concert of Armin van Buuren at Antwerp! Trance isn't usually my go to music, but i'm going with a group of friends so i'm pretty sure i'll have a blast! I also really need to go to the hairdresser, i realised it's too long again by watching these pictures. I'm thinking to add some layers to my hair for a change, but i'm not sure yet. Anyways, i hope you have a great weekend! xx, Annelies

How to wear: leather pants

One of my missions to the perfect fall-wardrobe is to find a good pair of well fitted skinny leather pants. Quite easy i thought at first, because they are quite common in the shops. Finds out that it is not that easy for me to find leather pants that fit perfectly and have the texture i have in mind. This week, i tried one at zara that fitted so well, but the texture was so shiney that it reminded me of latex. I really hope i'll find the one someday, it's the perfect wardrobe staple! Any tips where i can spot some?

New in: Sandro green suede bomberjacket

Something unplanned, but my best fall purchase yet by far! I was actually on the hunt for the perfect leather jacket, until i stumbled across this beauty. The pretty green color immediately catched my eye at the store. I tried to made the color on the pictures similar to how it is in real life, but in this case pictures really doesn't do it justice. Can't wait to wear it in a proper outfit!

Off duty

Sometimes i just want to mindlessly throw on something that's comfortable, this is one of those outfits. Just basic, simple and comfy :) It actually really feels like i'm wearing pyjamas, the leggings and oversized knitted sweater truly are lifesavers on my off-duty days! I had a lovely birthday btw! First a cozy dinner with my love, he cooked really delicious wok and bought sushi, my favourite foods! The day after we went to Antwerp to do some shopping. I bought something that wasn't on my list, but i looove it! I'll post some pictures soon :)

I'm turning 23 today! I really think that number doesn't fit me. It's something i have every year. I think i'm mentally stuck at 19, haha :) I would normally be at university today, but we all got an e-mail yesterday that there would be no lessons at all! Pretty awesome birthday present from my university i would say :) So i'm happy that i can spend my birthday at home with my family. Every year i'm so gratefull to have had a year where i'm healthy, happy and loved. Now let me continue eating everything i want today (mostly cake), because the rule is: calories don't count on birthdays! Let's all have a virtual cupcake! xx, Annelies

Recipe: healthy chocolatemilk

It's getting colder and colder, hot drink season has arrived! :) I want to share with you my favourite drink i like to drink while watching a serie under a blancket (my daily ritual): a healthy chocolatemilk! It's super simple to make and tastes really good! Here is how you make it: 

You'll only need two ingredients for this: unsweetened soymilk and pure cocoa powder. It's important that the soymilk is unsweetened, so make sure you check to ingredients for sugar. There may not be any additives to the cocoa powder, just 100% pure cocoa powder.

Pour the amount of soymilk you want in a soucepan and heat it up, it doesn't have to boil. It's important to stir the milk regulary.

When your milk is heated up, you can add the cocoa powder. I use one big teaspoon for one big mug of chocolatemilk, but you can add more or less according to your taste :)

Keep on stirring until there are no chunks of cocoa powder left in the milk.

 Pour your concoction in your favourite mug...

...and enjoy! :) xx, Annelies
