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


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 #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 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

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


Lily goes Sicily Taormina

I could have easily stayed days in the Agrigento area, but there are so many awesome gems to explore in Sicily and we only had a short amount of time on this island. You definitely should rent a car while you are here. That is the quickest way to get the most out of this island. In this article I show you stunning Taormina on the west coast. Continue reading


January 2015

The year started good in 2015! Working hard on two projects for myself aside from this blog. One of them I hope to be success business one day ;) Promise to reveal more once I can! Furthermore, it was less hectic with events this month, but I guess Amsterdam Fashion Week was more than enough ;) I was able to attend one show before I flew to Sicily for a little road trip. Outfit wise you see a division of die hard winter looks or summer longing dresses. Which look is your favorite this month? Continue reading
