I don't know if I've talked about my recent obsession with everything yellow on here before, but yeah, the obsession has been real ever since I saw how radiant Emma Stone looked in that one La La Land scene. It's generally not easy to find that type of clasically feminine dress at a lower price point in regular stores, so I have been stalking my favourite vintage store for yellow dresses over the past couple of months. When I stumbled upon this beauty for just €4, it was love at first sight for obvious reasons! Honestly, this is probably the most beautiful vintage dress I have scored over all of my years of thrifting. The colour, the print, the cut, the button through closure, it's all just exactly what I love in a garment. I can't wait to take this one with me to roadtrip through California in a couple of weeks!

We shot these pics when my boyfriend and I enjoyed a gorgeously sunny Thursday in Ghent, where we did some shopping and where I had the most sensational slice of rhubarb pie. Absolutely a gorgeous day to remember. It took a while before we found a photo backdrop and lighting I was happy with, but in the end a dress like this makes any setting look great.

We have a long weekend coming up, crossing my fingers for some sun! Hope you'll be having a lovely weekend :-) cheers!

Travel: a weekend in Paris

48 hours in Paris

If you follow my social media, you probably gathered that we spent a lovely weekend in Paris last week, thanks to Toyota! It was our first time fully experiencing the city (insane, I know, since it's only a short 3.5 hour drive away), so when Toyota reached out to me to test drive their C-HR car, taking along my boyfriend and two other bloggers on a little road trip to/through the city of love, I absolutely jumped for joy. I had just been neck-deep into PhD completion limbo, and some time to take my mind off things was just what the doctor ordered. This post is entirely too long, but what do you expect from a first time visit to an iconic city like Paris? Sit back and enjoy the ride!

Beauty: vitamin C Clinique Fresh Pressed review

Beauty: vitamin C Clinique Fresh Pressed review

While I used to think that a simple moisturizer was enough, skincare has become a passion of mine over the past few years. Of course, you shouldn't expect miracles from skincare (you're never going to get a result from a cream that you might get from fillers or botox, if that's what you're after), but as someone who spends quite some time staring at their face while playing with makeup and editing pictures, I've come to notice the small but significant changes made by particular types of skincare. 

Today, I'll be talking about Clinique's Fresh Pressed regime, which is basically a 7 day plan that uses vitamin C to clarify your skintone and increase your natural glow. I tried a vitamin C based skincare routine last year when I tested Auriga's Flavo C range, but I wasn't entirely convinced by the result. However, when I received this adorable mason jar filled with Clinique goodies, I was inspired to give the idea another go. Especially when reading the claims!

- cell renewal is boosted from the first use
- your complexion should look brighter after only one use, and after a week of daily application, your skin will be more even, smoother and firmer
- after four weeks, hyperpigmentation should be reduced by about 20% (no idea how they measure this though), and fine lines and wrinkles have reduced by 30%
- after 12 weeks of contnued use, hyperpigmentation has reduced by 30%, and wrinkles by 40%.

Sounds pretty impressive! I only used the product for 7 days, so let's see if we can see those claimed end results.
