AWAY FROM KEYBOARD #18

Away from keyboard #18

Time for an other photo diary! In the mean time I have been to Belgium twice (which you will see in an other diary soon), attended some (blogger) events, created some new crazy flatlays (new hobby of mine ;)), had a lot of food porn moments and I have been snapping away on snapchat like a true addict! If you are interested to see some more behind the scenes videos at events or for more personal snaps, follow along username: hashtagbylily. Furthermore, if you are interested, there are two giveaways on Facebook right now, make sure to check out the last two pics!  Continue reading

PATIENCE IS NOT THE ABILITY TO WAIT BUT HOW YOU ACT WHILE YOU ARE WAITING

PATIENCE IS NOT THE ABILITY TO WAIT BUT HOW YOU ACT WHILE YOU ARE WAITING quote

After launching ‘Hashtag by Lily’ for over a year now, I am pleased to see that this blog has grown gradually. It wasn’t an overnight success. Patience and hard work are the magical words (hence the title ;)). It took some time to be here now where I am and yet I keep visualizing bigger and better. Don’t get me wrong, I am very satisfied with how things are going, it’s just not even close to the bigger picture I envision. Continue reading

HOTEL NOVOTEL BRUGGE CENTRUM

Novotel brugge centrum

Since I really enjoy making these hotel reviews (duh), I made a new category on the blog ‘hotels’ under the ‘travel’ tab, where I share my experiences of the hotels I have stayed in. Instead of showing you the pictures that you can find on the Internet already, I love to do these editorial shoots and have a little fun with it.
Last weekend I went to Brugge in Belgium and stayed at hotel Novotel Centrum. Continue reading

BOHEMIAN PONCHO

Last weekend Novotel invited me to stay at their hotel in Brugge. You will see this review in the next article this week. While we were there we got to explore this cultural heritage Belgium city for the weekend as well. To me there isn’t anything better than to combine fashion and travel for a living. I am so pleased to see how this is working out little by little for Hashtag by Lily. Continue reading

LILY GOES SICILY EPISODE 3: CATANIA

LilygoesSicily Catania

Our final stop in Sicily was in Catania. Here we stayed at the UNA hotel, which I dedicated a whole article to already, here. We started our day with a royal breakfast on their roof terrace. After check out we went to explore the streets of Catania. Catania has more of the city life than the previous places we’ve visited in Sicily with many shops and restaurants. Along our stroll we saw some beautiful architectures that must have been there for ages. Such strong character these (vibrant) buildings have. Continue reading

AWAY FROM KEYBOARD #17

Away from keyboard #16

I really enjoy making these “Away From Keyboard” articles. This way I can show you more ‘behind the scenes’ snaps of what is keeping me busy. Lately I have a new hobby of making flatlay photos. As you can see in this article, this is really getting out of hand haha. I attended two events, the River Island Salon show and the Livera Valentine to see the new collections. Furthermore, I got spoilt big time with surprises from Zalando & Livera on Valentines day!

For even more behind the scenes snaps and videos you can follow me on Snapchat (hashtagbylily). Happy Sunday everyone!! X      Continue reading

UNA HOTEL PALACE CATANIA

Una hotel Palace catania sicily

Choosing this path of mixing fashion with a whole lot more travel from now on is a dream I am chasing. It started good this year with my first trip to Sicily in January.
My vision is to share my experiences abroad with you through my perspective in the travel diaries. I wanted to dedicate a whole article about this awesome hotel we stayed in when we made our stop in Catania at the UNA Hotel Palace. They surely made me feel like a princess during my stay, making it even harder for me to leave Sicily. Continue reading

DIGITAL ADDICTION

Digital Addiction

In contrast to the summer photos on the first days in Sicily, it got much chillier on our last day. Perfect opportunity to shoot my new coat that I bought last minute at the Zara sale the day before. Happy to add this lovely blue coat in the colorless (winter)coat collection of mine. Continue reading
