ROB PEETOOM BEAUTY MARKET

Rob Peetoom Beauty market

I got invited by Rob Peetoom to visit their beauty market this week to experience different treatments they offer. How can I turn down a day of indulgence like this right?! I have been a loyal Rob Peetoom customer for years now. Knowing that they work with the best of the best, I can always surrender myself to the experts and really enjoy the treatments there. I even made a video of the afternoon this time!! Continue reading

Fushimi Inari Shrine

Fushimi-Inari Kyoto
Another epic location for today’s article. Kyoto’s number one attraction according to many travel books and websites (I can understand why): Fushimi Inari. A hike on mountain Inari with seemingly endless arcades of vermilion torri gates dedicated to the gods of rice and sake. One of those impressive climbs you will always cherish in your memories.

ASOS DEEP PLUM SKIRT

Asos deep plum skirtThe best part of blogging is that you can run this business anywhere in the world. So of course I was delighted to incorporate this vacation in the blog. Especially because I could bring the Asos collaboration with me, knowing that I will look at my best with beautiful unique backdrops (–> the first & second Asos looks). That would make every blogger happy right?! ;) Continue reading

LILY GOES JAPAN EPISODE 2: TOKYO II

#LilygoesJapanI have still tons of photos to share with you from our getaway to Japan.

To stay in the Tokyo vibe, I am skipping the Hiroshima article for now, saving it for another time. Continue reading

AWAY FROM KEYBOARD #10

Away from keyboard #10Sorry for disappearing from the blog for almost a week now. The vacay has totally messed up my blog routine, but it will be back to normal this week, I promise! Working on the second Japan episode already (check here for the first one), so it shouldn’t take too long before it will appear online. In the mean time I kept myself busy with the offline blog activities and spending much time with family and friends. Here is a little diary from since the day I got back in town. Continue reading

CHECKERED BLEND

Checkered blend

Back to the Japan posts! I was (and still am) very excited about this shoot, because I know it is very rare to be able to shoot in the middle of a very busy road in Tokyo, where normally is a 24/7 traffic jam. So we were crossing this road when I noticed that it was closed down for cars due to constructions. I saw the perfect opportunity here to have a quick shoot (even though I just woke up, so don’t mind my sleepy face) and the rest is history ;)
