Blue Skies + RIVER ISLAND STUDENT PARTY




I have a hell of a cold. Quite ironic with the lovely weather, isn't it? The thing I hate about having a cold is having a runny nose. Sniffling all the time, not being able to breathe through your nose and thus spending day and night with a sore throat and a dry mouth, I hate it. Every time I have a clogged up nose, I end up spending my nights restlessly rolling around in my bed because I'm dreaming about my very dry mouth and throat and how I'm trying to find some water to quench that thirst, very frustrating! 

Btw I am a supporter of Japanese etiquette, by which I mean that I prefer sniffling to blowing my nose every five seconds. Sniffling is considered rude by a lot of people, but I just don't see the point in blowing my nose if it makes the skin around my nose irritated. It doesn't even last long enough to make up for the EFFORT of blowing your nose! Haha yes, having a cold makes me even lazier than usual.

What are your stances on sniffling vs blowing?

(most random fashion blog post ever?)


dress: Zara
tights, bag: H&M
boots: ASOS
glasses: Pimkie, I think
ring: Alex Monroe
nails: Catrice (sweets for my sweet)

PS: YOU GUYS I have been notified of an AWESOME event coming up, it is sure to interest all my readers from Belgium and maybe even Holland! Prepare yourself for awesomeness: RIVER ISLAND IS HAVING A STUDENT PARTY, AND YOU'RE ALL INVITED!!! 31st of march is when it's happening, from 19 'til 21pm, and every student who shows a student card gets 20% off! There will also be possibilities to win gift vouchers: FREE STUFF! Flyers will be distributed starting next week, and you Antwerp ladies might find me handing out flyers for the event! Every flyer is supposed to be like a lottery ticket, it might win you awesome vouchers during the party, and there will be drinks and dj's and awesome people (including me HAHA) so be there or be square!

I know you don't need any more convincing, but in case you do: here are some of my current River Island faves!


I'LL TAKE ONE OF EACH PLEASE K THX

  1. What a sweet outfit! How I wish we had Zara here! And I'm more of a blower than a sniffer, but I try to do it as discreetly and lady-like as possible. Which mostly fails miserably.

  3. i am totally an obnoxious blower. i sort of have the idea that sniffling and sending things back down your throat will make you sicker. no idea if that's true or not. :S

  15. Haha, you are such a character. I don't mind sniffling since I hate my nose getting all sore and irritated from kleenex. No matter how soft they claim the tissue is it always ends up killing my nose! I love your bag in this post, such a gorgeous piece!

  20. Great RI choices. I'm really into dresses since I started to read blogs. I think it's a female blogger madness to wear dresses and skirts more often than pants!

  27. Love your RI picks! Having a cold is always a drag, hope you get better soon! I prefer blowing my nose, but I hate it anyway because my nose gets all red and dry and the skin around my nostrils and above my upper lip gets scraped and I can't wear lipstick because I always wipe it off with my handkerchief and it looks stupid with the red nose anyway. So...thinking about it... I'll probably start sniffling instead :-D
    Get well soon! <3

  29. Ik moet dringend eens teruggaan naar RI.
    Hopelijk kan 'k dit weekend gaan!

    Ik ben een die hard sniffer, tot ergernis van m'n mama die me telkens een preek geeft over 'sinusitis' en dergelijke. :D

  30. Apparantly, sniffing is better. But there's one (disgusting) disadvantage: you have to sniff really hard so the snot is totally gone. And most of the time that doesn't make very nice noises...

    Anyway, love the shoes and I hope you get well soon!

  31. I don't sniff because that's bad to get into your system and I gag a lot if that stuff gets in me. so i have to blow it out because I get infections. me and tissues have a pretty good relationship.

    Love your dress' details
