forever mine.

During the last 5 years of blogging, I have shared a lot with you guys. I’ve taken you to restaurants, shared my daily looks, beauty rituals and parts of my fitness and diet. I have written about my travels, about being sick and about my family. As you may have noticed though, Mike’s picture has never made it on the blog (unless you count this post). I receive questions about him a lot, and have even been asked what’s wrong with him, that I never show him off. Nothing! He is the best thing that has ever happened to me, and hopefully that will never change. Which is exactly the reason that I don’t post pictures with him. I adore him beyond words (eww so cheesy… but true!) and I while I love sharing so many aspects of my life with you, he is one that I’ll keep to myself.

While you guys may not see him on the blog, you do see a lot of things that represent our love on a regular basis – maybe even without knowing. Almost every single piece of jewellery I wear is from him, with a special story and meaning behind it. All, except two pieces. One is a delicate ring that I had custom made for myself on my 25th birthday, and the other piece is a gorgeous necklace which I had just made about 3 weeks ago at ANNA Inspiring Jewellery. Both he and I travel a lot, and I wanted something that was always with me. Even though all pieces by ANNA have special symbolic meanings, their custom engraved pieces top it all. Two years ago for my birthday, Mike got me a bracelet from there that has our initials and date engraved on it, and I wanted a necklace to go with it. I know a lot of you have noticed the beautiful piece on my recent outfits and Instagram photos already, but today I wanted to share a closer look at my new favorite, and most personal piece of jewellery. Forever mine.

NEW IN: chanello #1

Oh Chanel! It seems that it is an endless lovestory for most girls – and I am definitely no exception! While the bags that are on my wishlist will have to wait (for now), I finally splurged on something I had been craving for a long time. Over the past few months and weeks, I repeatedly spotted a Chanel brooch on Caro and Anni’s Instagram feeds. Everytime I saw it, I fell in love a little more. I had been to Chanel a few times, but they only had brooches from the supermarket collection in store. Then, this Friday I finally got lucky. And now it is mine ♥ Chanello no.1 in my closet!

NEW IN: “mise en dior” tribal earrings

Some of you may have already spotted my new earrings in yesterday’s outfit post. I have been obsessed with the “mise en dior” tribal earrings ever since I saw Anna wear them – she was one of the first to have them and I’ve spotted them a ton since then. The more I saw them, the more I fell in love. I know they’re not everyone’s cup of tea, but I love the modern take on such a classic piece. Also, they can be worn as “normal” pearls as well, which I like. The tribal earrings have been sold out non-stop and I had basically given up on owning them any time soon. Then, this past Saturday I walked into Dior and they had one last pair left, because a girl on the waiting list never showed up to get them. Sometimes we have to get lucky, right?

OUTFIT: patterns & bling

While my style isn’t too wild usually, I still like the idea of mixing unexpected items, like fancy jewelry with super easy sneakers and a patterned top. As you know, I simply adore statement jewelry, whether it is big necklaces, stacked bracelets or sparkly earrings – they always work for me. Even paired with a casual mosaic top and converse. Currently, I am absolutely obsessed with Anton Heunis pieces. You may remember my first pair from my NYE look, but this gold and white version is simply too die for! Not to mention perfect for summer.
