Two-day vegetarian

Eating healthy is all the rage today. Scroll through Instagram’s explore page and you will see what appears to be a million and one voices shouting at you to be healthy.

Making small changes

While youth sometimes makes you feel as if you have all the time in the world, growing older forces you to contemplate certain aspects of your life.

Not an overnight thing

I never thought my interests would shift so drastically, but at my current stage in life the only things I want to spend huge sums of my money on are my home and my diet.

Living in a hyperconnected world

I have a love-hate relationship with living in a hyperconnected world. Despite it being free will when it comes to deciding on our level of connectivity, it sometimes seems as if we are pushed into being mapped in.

Hair rebellion

It is difficult to feel good about yourself when everything you like goes against what seems to be right.

Worn once vs multiple times

Despite the fact that I am very much for re-wearing items that I own, I must admit that at times it can prove quite difficult to do so.

As wedding season approaches…

I can’t believe April is already here. In this particular quarter you may have already started to receive wedding invitations for August/summer weddings, worry about the expense they will put you in (because even as a guest weddings are expensive), have a good solid fight with your partner to determine who should be there and who shouldn’t etc.

There are no shortcuts

I started working out about a year ago. Up until last November, I primarily worked from home and I found that because I was so stationary, being isolated also started to feel normal because I was still managing to be productive.

Two-faced style

It has been said that style is influenced by several factors. Disposable income and peer influence often overshadow the environmental factor.

Clean beauty

Somehow ageing has made me become more aware of what is going into my body.

Remembering Karl Lagerfeld

Why don’t people speak the truth about others when they die? It’s almost as if they are afraid that their spirits will come back to haunt them.

Dressing the mini-mes

If anyone looked at my saved basket on ASOS (the virtual equivalent to walking around with loads of items in your hand in an actual store) they wouldn’t have the slightest clue as to what is going on in my life.

Wellness: the new luxury

Luxury has a different meaning for everyone. For some it could be reflected in the types of purchases made and for others it could mean living completely organic lives.

Minimalism and pressure

In a world of excess that creates so much uncertainty, minimalism is becoming the new face of desirability as it relates to fashion and lifestyle. 

Christmas and tartan

The unwritten rule as it relates to colour co-ordination for certain special events has always baffled me.

Who gets respect?

Every time I come across a scandal in fashion that involves a racist or gesture, I note that there is a standardized processing pattern.

That silver lining

Global news overwhelms me, but not acknowledging the world’s state of affairs makes me feel even more miserable.

Edges need love

I have been overwhelmed with the responsibilities of life, so much so that I have started to neglect my hair.

Lifestyle and fashion: An integrated duo

It’s amazing how your interests and priorities shift as you grow older. Fashion month is passing through Milan as you read this and, believe it or not, I haven’t felt the urge to indulge in my usual swooning over the collections online.

A lesson from Nike

Our consumption patterns are directly linked to our value system. No matter how we try to alter our perception of fashion, each time we consume it is directly linked to personal choice and a clear reflection of our politics and disposable income among other things.

The Sunday fashion sermon

I haven’t been to Sunday mass in quite a while. Living in Belgium, I failed miserably when it came to finding a church that held services in English.

Pride is money

There are no words to express how it feels to move through a European city during Pride Week.
