Looking over the Mediterranean sea as every bit of worry in the world gets washed away in the foam of the breaking waves- that's how I like to spend my days off school, away from all the worksheets and hand-outs, with my only dilemma being which fruit to have freshly pressed into juice. Days like that are only a fantasy to me right now, since nowadays I keep finding myself drowning in indescribable amounts of procrastination- such a convenience right before my final exams. A week from now, I'll be waving goodbye to my school with a smile on my face and possibly tears streaming down my cheeks. I'm not gonna lie, that place has grown on me. No matter how much people complain about school and the overflow of 'hard work' that comes along with it, most of us will end up missing those grumpy teachers and hallways constantly flooded with rushing students. It's the end of an era, a raindrop in the ocean, as some may say. Right now I'm optimistic about what the future has planned, I'm on board for whatever adventures are ahead. I'm diving in.

There's something ever so enchanting about nature in spring. Of course, artificial beauty has its own charm. I'm an architecture junkie. Whatever defies the laws of physics or simply is glorious in its construction and structure- I love it. But the feeling I get from seeing all the blossoms appear every May is completely different and actually quite hard to put into words. It really does feel like the world is coming back to life and it's so empowering. In spring, I always feel the need to try new things- wear combinations of garments I usually wouldn't, experiment with colors and so on. So here I am, trying out the whole romper thing. I know rompers have been around for a long time; in fact, I've had this one from Casper&Pearl for over a year, but never wore it. Thus, when the time came for me to pack and leave to a warmer place, I realized that the amount of summer clothes I own is very limited-- half of my wardrobe consists of coats and faux fur-- which forced me to pull out some ensembles that never got to see the light outside of the house.
I'm currently in my couple of last weeks of school... ever. After these two weeks and then a relatively long period of exams, I will be done with school for good. Stress and excitement are both on the menu right now and I'm pretty certain that it will remain this way for a while. At least until I get my hands on that diploma.

Good morning! Reporting live from my queen size bed back in Brussels. I came back home last night at around five o'clock in the morning. The sun was almost rising by the time I was ready to get some of that much needed sleep. Right now, there's a huge suitcase and bags waiting to be unpacked, but knowing myself I will probably leave them there for a bit longer, just enough for me to settle down again. It almost feels surreal that just yesterday I was still enjoying the sun in that little part of paradise that is Turkey. Suddenly waking up in cloudy Belgium makes it feel as though it was all just a dream. A beautiful one, to say the least. I have a lot of pictures ready so bare with me while I 'unpack' them little by little and share moments from my getaway with you, starting with these shots taken in the hotel room we stayed in. The natural light shining through the soft white curtains was almost fairly, so pure and enchanting... made me want to dress in white the whole time (I didn't, though). Alright, it is now time for me to make some tea and maybe some toast with avocado. Perfect way to kick off this last day of holiday!

I think it's time for a quick update, what do you say? I'm currently on a little getaway in Turkey, where sunbathing by the pool, enjoying countless taste explosions (when I say 'countless' I truly mean it- I don't think I've ever seen, let alone ate, this much in my life... oops!) and wandering around on the rocky coast are some of my every day activities. Taking a break from the 'real world' and all the stress that comes with it is always a good idea. I've only got a few days left in this beautiful place before I go back to the ever so cloudy Brussels. Got to enjoy every moment left here, I am now going to hit the gym for a bit before dinner. For now I'm leaving you with some pictures from back when I was in London a couple of months ago. The Buckingham palace is everything.

River Island satchel bag
Trying to bring some color into my dark and gloomy wardrobe, one blueberry-milkshake- coloured satchel at a time. This one I bought back in August when I went to Tallinn... I have not taken any regret in purchasing yet another bag as a souvenir. It's not only perfect aesthetically, it's also more practical than one would think. It comes with a long strap that you can choose to either fix onto the sides of the bag to carry it on your shoulder as one would usually do, or you can fix that same strap in a way that'll convert the handbag into a beautiful little backpack. Genius, right?
For a couple of weeks now, the feeling of spring settling in has been growing stronger every day. My house is filled with flowers- some I received the other day during my school's annual fashion show (yes, I made another capsule collection), some were brought in by my mum who loves decorating with pastel bouquets. I'm definitely not complaining. My evenings are spent working on an architecture project of designing a concept store for art class while listening to Franky Valli and the Four Seasons. What's not to like!
