1 DAY HOLIDAY // ANTWERP

        


Technically it is our holiday, as in we have time off from work. But since we're not going anywhere this year and are spending almost all of our time in (the making of..) our garden, we decided to take the car and drive to Antwerp for the day for a tiny little holiday :)


What you're looking at :

  • Early in the morning on our way rocking our shades ;)
  • Mouth wattering window display from a tiny little bakery downtown Antwerp.
  • Okay so we couldn't resist to buy a few things and have ourself a tiny picnic in the town square.
  • Trying on (and buying ;) a low cut-out top from Urban Outfitters. LOVE that store btw!
  • Sitting down for a bit and cooling my feet at the well known fountain in the middle of Antwerp.
  • My boyfriend's Godiva white chocolate & raspberry drink. OMG it was SOOO GOOD!!
  • Putting all of our bags in the car before going out to dinner, took such a load off.. haha
  • Me making silly faces at my iphone while the boy is laughing and telling me something, sorry for not paying attention and making pictures again babe! ;)
  • Sitting down for some italian and filling up on bread and garlic butter, why do we do this??
  • Beautiful view from the restaurants terrace.
  • No dessert after dinner, but we went down the road for some icecream to take on our evening walk down the boulevard.
  • Looking back at the church while standing by the water, I love when it's 10PM and not all dark yet.



LOTS OF LOVE, DAPHNE


PS. Today I'm back in Eindhoven for the second part of my left arm tattoo, super excited!! :))

Hiiiiii sweeties!!! Back to blogging after 17 days (omg!) We've done a lot of things and made some nice progress in "project-backyard' ;) Last tuesday was my boyfriend's birthday, he turned 27 and we celebrated by having a nice big bbq that evening with our family and all of our new neighbours, so much fun!

I have a lot more photo's I wanna show you guys, but I'm starting off with what I wore that day and finally admitting I might actually be a peplum lover..

NEW IN // STUDDED SLINGBACKS







Two things I never thought I'd buy, a low heel & a slingback. Haha, guess it comes to show you never know what you might like/wear in the future. (Our moms know all about this, they've seen the bootcut denim, platform shoes and poppy dresses come in & out of style many times ;)

Never the less, something about them caught my eye when browsing through the online Zara sale and decided to click them home. They really surprised me in the best way, a very VERY comfortable heel-hight, the elegant pointy toe and let's not forget THEY'RE STUDDED <3


HAVE YOU EVER BOUGHT SOMETHING YOU NEVER THOUGHT YOU WOULD?

SHOPPING // INDOOR GOODIES

                  



Remember I told you guys about my Zara Home online discovery here? Well... it arrived a couple of days later and I LOVE IT!! Haven't given everything the perfect place yet, but I'm absolutely positive all of these babies will get a perfect spot in our home.


Have you ever ordered something from Zara Home?

SUNDAY SELECT


 
  • Delicious and fruity dessert with raspberry yoghurt, pomegranate and water melon :)
  • This is basically what we have been doing for the past 2 weeks, assembling garden screens screwing all the planks together, staining them and everything else that comes with making a garden fence) This was the first one we've finished so me and my sweet neighbours were very proud of ourselves (us girls can do something to!)
  • Some very well turned out blueberry muffins from earlier this week, they did perfect as a breakfast muffin I might add :)
  • After a hard day of work outdoors there's just something very awesome about making a fire and keeping it going till it's loooong dark.
  • My first Zara Home order arrived yaaaayyy!!! (will show you what I got tomorrow!)
  • I rarely drink alcohol but I kinda love the feeling of drinking beer out of a bottle, haha.. I know it's pretty silly right.. But these non alcoholic rosé beers are delicious if you ask me, and minus the headache the day after ;)
  • We also had a big BBQ this weekend after a long day of work with all our neighbours and my sweet next-next-next-door neighbour made this simple but VERY tasty strawberry/whipped cream/disco topping dessert, yummmm!!!

CRAZY BUSY


double breasted blazer & neon tank top - H&M // grey skinnies - Topshop // butterfly slippers (different print here) & sunnies - Asos


As I told you guys about last time, we're super crazy busy at the moment which explains my absence here on the blog for the last couple of dayzz.. On the bright hand side we almost finished our garden fence and we'll hopefully be ready to enjoy our backyard by the time our vacation starts, (which is in only 2 weeks so we'll better get cracking ;)

Yesterday I had the first tattoo session for expanding the sleeve on my left arm, everytime I get one more it seems to hurt less and those 3,5 hours just flewww by!! Only 7 hours to go ;) Pics will follow soon!

One more weekend of die-hard work with the boy and all our neighbours and let's hope the weather treats us well so we can get a lot of things done. (if you have a spare 5 minutes, please do a little sunshine-dance for me??)


Big kiss for now and I'm hoping to talk to you soon again!

LOVE, DAPHNE
