How to wear Maxi Skirts during Winter

Monday, February 20, 2017

"Orange? Like Effie's hair?' I say. "A bit more muted," he says. "More like a sunset kind of orange" ~ Suzanne Collins

I always loved maxi skirts. Mostly they are worn during summertime, but the trend this year made it possible for us to wear them in the winter period as well. You can combine it in different ways. I styled it with a comfy sweater, designed shorter in the front and longer in the back. A pair of comfortable ankle boots were the ideal fit, because of the long walks we had yet to do in Antwerp.

We went to the water to watch the sunset. It was beautiful. The colour was warm and made me disappear for a few seconds. It was a moment from pure intern happiness.
Orange is a colour that send out an enormous amount of energy. It gets his meaning out of the colours yellow and red. It stimulates you to think positive, be creative and helps you to get a good mood.

So if you are feeling down, go and search for a orange kind of sunset. Have a nice day maddies.

How I Lived On A Pound A Day

Tuesday, February 14, 2017

~“Don't think money does everything or you are going to end up doing everything for money.” - Voltaire


I'm reading a book (picture above) "How I lived on a pound a day written by Kath Kelly. It started as an impulsive idea, but then she wanted to test it for a whole year.
A friend of mine came over en gave me this book. 'It's something for you' He said. So I began this book with lots of curiosity and unbelief. How can you possible live on a pound a day?
I tried a couple of days to live on a pound a day, but it isn't easy. Kelly found washing-powder for 0,25 pound. The cheapest that I found here in Belgium was 2 euros. I could change my washing-powder in vinegar. It is available for less then 0,5 eurocent and you can use it for everything. Plus it's eco-friendly.

I will not test it for a whole year, but the book is inspiring and a little shocking to read.
I recommend this book to everyone. It gives you a new fresh view about how to spend your money.




Black and White

“Books bring alluring colors to our mundane black and white world.” ~ Caleb Reese


Black and white, good and bad, sun or shadow. It's never complete when one of them is missing, but isn't this what we call 'black and white" thinking. Nothing will ever be just black and white. Nothing will just be good or bad. Because we all know every color has different shades. "That is just a red wall". We all imagine the color, but it will never be the exact same in our minds. We might live in the shadows, but the shadow will vary, because the sun will never create the same shade twice. Dusk, dawn, twilight, there will always be an in between.

Do people sort subjects in boxes just to know what it means? Just to make sure they understand. Because, what would it feel like if they didn't figure out the answer. The unknowing dept off unquestioned answers. It might just frighten us.

Perhaps we ought to embrace the things we don't know. A dilemma always has two outcomes, but none of them will have a good or a bad ending. Because, in what context will it be good or bad. Making a decision was hard enough anyway.
