Vielsalm - Ardennes

I used to dream about escaping my ordinary life, but my life was never ordinary. I had simply failed to notice how extraordinary it was.” ~ Ransom Riggs

A week ago I went to the Ardennes. It was a prefect break to calm myself and offer me some rest. Me and my family walked and enjoyed the nature. Swam because we stayed at Sunparks and that about sums it up. Nothing better then fresh air in the woods and a good walk or swim. What I especially adored about our little house, was that there was a fireplace. I adore the sound of the crackling wood and the flames. I somehow always want a fireplace when I go to the Ardennes. Here are some pictures I picked out to show to you.

Sometimes you just need to go through a door.”

Give Me Love

'I'll gently rise and I'll softly call, goodnight and joy be with you all'

Who doesn't get happy of good weather! I really love the sun! I've read that it is a natural antidepressant. A good excuse to spend your time in the sun. I would love to live in the south of France or Spain. The sun, the blue sea, it must be amazing. Me and my sister are planning to make a trip to a warm country where we can totally relax. If you have any advise, shoot!
I wish you a lot off sun and happiness mad readers!
I'm wearing a white laced dress and bohemian vest from Zara. I wear this outfit a lot for festivals, but today I decided to wear it on a normal day. Hope you like it.

This Is My Fight Song

'It's a better place since you came along' - Rachel Platten 

It's nice how an ordinary picture can create something weird, yet interesting. I love how the normality of a subject can change your feeling. Just like this picture. It's a pedestrian crossing. That's it, but when I took this picture it was more for me than just a pedestrian crossing.
This picture presents adventure for me. A new start, a new path or direction you can go to. Letting go of the past and looking forward to the future. Living today. Some of the stripes are so clear and white that it is almost a blank page you can fill in with your ideas. You can make your future!
Lately I've been thinking a lot. We're al just peoples with our dreams. We want it to come true. But after all, is that what we really want? Is that what our hearts desire?
I just want to be happy. Live from day to day. Breath the fresh air each morning when I go working. Closing my eyes and think 'this is gonna be another wonderful day'.

Dream on! Dream until your dreams come true!

The sun is alone too, but it still shines!

"When I let go of what I am, I become what I might be."

Last weekend, my sister and I spend the weekend together. It was just one of those weekends we end up doing nothing but spending time talking, watching series we really like and eat way to much unhealthy food. These times are the times I look forward to when I had a long day at work.

These pictures are taken at a park. The sun fell behind the horizon, painting the sky shades of red and pink. Both of us fell in love with how the sunrays touched this field and we just had to take a few pictures here. We were dressed casually for a foodtruck festival which was, unfortunatly, a little overpriced, so we ended eating elsewhere. X"D

The road to success is always under construction

“Some beautiful paths can't be discovered without getting lost.” ~ Erol Ozan

A few days ago we went to visit a cultural food market in Turnhout. It's a international market where people sell products from there country. It was a lot of fun to walk though the different stands. We visited a Italian foodstand because we though it was so adorable and we just love Italian food. They were selling bread with olives and tomatoes. It's just perfect as snack! We both also bought a bottle Prosecco for our father.

For that day I was wearing a lovely skirt from Romwe. The blossoms on them are prefect for spring. It's so whimsical and I regret I don't were this skirt more often. As top I'm wearing a shirt from Zara. it was only 15 euros and I just love grey lately. That makes it a prefect bargain in my opinion. The shoes are from Asos. They are easily my favorite sandals to wear at the moment.
Do you like international markets as well?

You don't drawn by falling in the water

"There comes a time when you have to chose between turning the page and closing the book" 

Hallo dear maddies, lately I've been thinking al lot about letting things go. The past is a haunting me and it is time accept and get on with my life. Sometimes I wish I finished my study in painting, but I can't change it. I don't want to have those flashbacks anymore. I have to close the book and start writing a new one. I want to do a lot of things now to clear my mind. I want to see my friends more often, start to get biking and walking. Traveling to a wonderful, peaceful place where I can give my head the time to work things out. Thinking of nothing and enjoying the landscape! The pictures you see are from the county 'Corsica'. It has a wonderful route the 'Gr20'. It was an amazing experience! My next goal is to walk trough the Pyrenees, but a good traveler has no fixed plans and is not intend on arriving!
Do you have troubles of letting things go?

I don't have time to be in love

"Maybe this revelry just wasn't meant for me." ~ Priscilla Ahn

When I look back a the day we took these pictures,.. I wish there were more days in Belgium when the sunrays brightened up the city. Everything looks so much more colorful. I don't dislike the monotone rainy days though, but I'm fascinated by how everything looks so much better when the sun is able to wake me up in the morning. I adore going out so much when the weather is good, and planning trips with my sister becomes my biggest hobby at that moment. I cherish those precious moments we are together.

Even though I adore color, that day I decided to go for a simple black and white outfit. I think it was because of my new hair color. The blouse is from Romwe. It very light and perfect for warm days! I can't recall where the skirt is from though, but I keep loving the asymmetric skirts. My sister was so kind to let me borrow her New Look shoes, which I absolutely adore. I might secretly borrow them for a while. The bag is from Forever 21, and it kind of became my daily bag for everything since it's so practical and beautiful at the same time. On my bag hangs a little keychain I purchased at Made in Asia. She is called "Hilde", since a college from work said the keychain had to be called like her and so I did. Now I have to get one for "Sabah" as well since she wanted a place on my bag as well. I thought it was so funny, so I agreed to get one for her as well.

How do you enjoy sunny days?

C'est La Vie

'They Furnished off an appartment with a two room Roebuck sale. The coolerator was crammed with Tv dinners and ginger ale, but when Pierre found work, the little money comin' worked out well. "C'est la vie", say the old folks, it goes to show you never can tell.' ~ Chuck Berry 

I already told you that I moved in a small apartment, so I decided to show you some pictures! I took some instagrams and made a collage. Here is the result. I inspired myself on the Scandinavian style. I really love the light atmosphere of it. My home turned out Scandinavian/vintage like.  My sister London helped me in finding nice accessories. The cushion covers from H&M Home fit perfectly with the plates. The store is really amazing! You have to visit it. You can find so many lovely things over there. I also bought a bronze fruit basket for accent. I wanted to buy more bronze accessories, but it's expensive. So I'm going to buy a spray to create some DIY's. Hope you like it. Stay Mad

I'm a believer

'I thought love was only true in fairytales, meant for someone else but not for me.' ~The Monkees 

I while ago we took this pictures. I was visiting my parents and was wearing a boyfriend jeans. I like this pants. It's comfortable and something different than a skinny jeans. I's always nice to meet your parents again and have a nice talk and a cup of coffee. They are always so nice to me when I come over. How is your relationship with your parents?
I'm wearing trousers from Forever21 and a top from urban outfitters. The hat is from a local store in France when I visited it when I was 18years. So that's five years ago, but I still have lovely memories of it! The shoes are from Asos. Have a lovely day!

This Time...

"We're just under the upper hand and go mad for a couple grams"

My sister went to visit me today. I, Paris, am a little sick so we decided to make some healthy food. We talked in the sun and enjoyed our free time. Just a simple relaxing day in the weekend! London showed me the first episode from season one from games of thrones. I didn't see it yet and it became time to start the series. The rest of my spare time I'm going to spend watching GOT. Did you saw GOT and how did you spend your weekend?

Paint splattered teardrops on my shirt,

"Give a little time to me or burn this out, we'll play hide and seek to turn this around"

Hello dear mad readers! I gave my hair a make-over. I always wanted give my hair a new color and last Friday it finally happened. It is so beautiful and I was really happy with the result! My hairdresser gave me a guaranty when the color wouldn't last since it was a difficult color and I think I need to go back since a lot of color already washed away unfortunately. I hope the new color will hold longer if I let it dye again, because I can't express how much I actually love this color. It's also the first time I've ever changed my hair color, so I think it should last longer than a week. I'll update you guys next week.

You can reclaim your crown

"You don't get what all this is about. You're too wrapped up in your self doubt!"

A while ago Paris and I went to Geel to have lunch. Geel has a wonderful park, so we took a little stol through it on our way to the city center. There were ducks with ducklings, birds flying everywhere and the sunlight was filtering through the sky magically!
I adore spring because things grow and everything becomes incredibly beautiful. It almost seemed like it was snowing, because the seeds of the willow catkins were soaring in the air. I can believe it isn't much fun for people with allergies, but to us it was breathtaking.
Our lunch was light, we ate croques at "De Post". It's a very good restaurant! They also sell the best iced coffees! We this time wisely waited to drink them after our lunch.
Later we just enjoyed the sun at Paris apartment.

What do you like to do in spring?
