Guyss!!!! My face is in the magazine of Flair!!! – Wow hold on for a sec, since when is this girl doing the magazines?! Just wait until she’s doing the covers too haahha, kidding (or not). =)

The day I got an email (and a text msg because this girls again was way too busy to check her mails) with the question if I wanted to model for the magazine, I was surprised and had a big smile on my face?! (I was at work, couldn’t resist my excitement and told my colleagues hahaha) And duuaahh, of course I had to say yes!!!

What you need to know about Flair is that it is a well-known Flemish women magazine that appears weekly in Belgium since 1980. Flair is aimed at women between the ages of 15 and 34 and the main themes of Flair are: fashion, beauty, health, sexuality, relationships and psychology.
Some readers ask questions about fashion like for example ‘my question’ was: How to wear a T-shirt on a creative/original way?  I was very happy when I got to know that I would model in my favorite fashion item – the T-shirt! And it is obvious that I was the perfect (hummn!) model for the fashion category. =)

So Catherine Kosters (the beautiful lady with the red fringe hairstyle) who works for Flair (fashion editor and columnist) contacted me to arrange an appointment. Fun to know is that Catherine is the sister of a friend/classmate of mine, Eveline (Hello gurl!). The shoot took place in Antwerp, at the Sanoma Studio.  When I arrived, two other models (for different questions) were busy doing their shoot and make up. I was blown away, thankful and all happy (damn I can’t describe this feeling!) because this was my first time doing this and live. I have always seen models getting ready for their shoots on tv or on the internet but this time it was me, playing model with her own MUA (Make Up Artist, for the ones that didn’t know what mua stands for, you’re welcome!), photographer and a personal STYLIST!!! That was the only person I was so excited about hahahaha, no but really, Iv always been my own personal stylist so this really was fun for me! (Continue reading for more about my thoughts about the looks).
Because the other girls were doing their shoot, I had to wait. In the meantime, I got asked if I wanted something to eat and I choose for yoghurt, was delicious by the way! I also took a before picture, where I looked all crusty and simple (please take a look of that face ahhaahaha). After that I tried on the three outfits that the stylist had picked for me. Catherine had told me that they were going to style me, and take into account my personal style and the stylist really did a great job!!  First look - love!  Idem for the second and last one! Want to know what my fave was? To be honest all of them were nice! But I think that the first one with the khaki trousers was my fave.  Ahhhh it’s hard to pick one – WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE LOOK (it's obvious that you have to buy the magazine to check those nice oufies out!) and which look would you go for? And HOW DO YOU LIKE TO WEAR YOUR T-SHIRT?

After the fittings it was time for make-up! You can read all what they used in the magazine for the simple look. And then – shoooot! It was really fun; I was comfortable and shy at the same time.  The photographer helped me with the poses and Catherine was watching and both were giving me compliments and all, so sweet! This is definitely an experience I want to do again in my life! Thank You God =)

I was at the studio for 3 hours, everything went well, and I had a nice day and I just want to thank everyone from that day (even the taxi driver that took a very long way to arrive at the studio while talking about how we’re supposed to support each other in our community, very interesting)! Thank you Catherine for being so kind, your welcoming and you professionalism, thank you Isolde Roels for your gentle hands that painted my face from a “???!!!-look”  into a sweet look, thank you Liza Babylon for the fun tshirt looks, for your help zipping my dress and thank you Leen Van den Meutter for the pictures! - The whole Flair team was just perfect! I also want to thank everyone who helped me with the backstage pictures hihi!  =)

Audition for Disney Channel

A day well spent and out of my comfort zone

Eliscoll

Hello my lovely Sunshines ! How are you ! Sorry, these last days weren’t that productive for me that’s why my blog was kinda empty lol. But here you have another outfit post for a chilling day, like the usual! A T, jeans and white sneakers. Nothing much.

These pictures are from two months ago, on a random Saturday well spent with my lovely friend Anna! Ohh guys, she is starting a blog and I’m so excited for her! Can’t wait to share the link with you when it’s finally ready aaahh! But guess what we did that Saturday …. Some of you are going to laugh, some are going to freak out and be hella of excited (what we were in the beginning as well haaha), or some just aren’t going to have a reaction (also possible) … :)
First of all we started our day with breakfast at our place where we love to hang aka Hema (Dear Hema, you better sponsor my next post when I will be talking about you again hahah).  And theeenn we AUDITIONED FOR DISNEY CHANNEL! Whaaaaa – I know right! Maybe that some of you were also there that day, 17/6? Well the dream was real, my first time auditioning for an acting role and it went good – that same evening I got a call saying “Jonathan Goldstein is very interested in you!”, which meant that I got accepted! But the programs I had to choose from weren’t suitable for me. And as you know I’m a person who overthink things, one day wasn’t enough for me to make a big decision (for such a huge thing). Even though I did the audition, which was fun and interesting for me and on top of that doing it with my friend, I didn’t lose anything, I had the time haha! No but really, I’m happy that I took a step out of my comfort zone to try/do something I never thought I would ever do (perform in front of a real American actor). Positive energy! =D

Later after our audition we went to a little restaurant for lunch (that turned into a weird experience: seeing naked people on their bikes while eating mmhhn not the best combination!). This little restaurant Bia Mara is in the city of Brussels, next to another favorite restaurant of mine, Peck 47. I forgot what food we exactly took but it was delicious fish and potato fries (that were a little too dry in my opinion) and sweet drinks! We had such a beautiful day. Have you ever been to that restaurant? If yes, did you like it? If no (not yet), I recommend it – cozy, nice service and employees! :)

Bonjour, mes adorables Sunshines! Comment allez-vous ! Désolé, ces derniers jours n'étaient pas  tellement productifs pour moi et c'est pourquoi mon blog était un peu vide. Mais enfin aujourd’hui  vous avez une autre tenue pour un jour assez simple, comme l'habitude! Un T, un jean et des baskets blancs. Rien de plus.

Ces images ont été prises il y a deux mois, à un samedi passé avec mon amie Anna! Ohh, elle va bientôt commencer un blog et je suis excitée pour elle! J'ai hâte de partager le lien avec vous quand le site sera enfin prêt aaahh! Mais devinez ce que nous avons fait ce samedi là ... Certains d'entre vous vont rire, certains vont peter les plombs et être excité (ce que nous étions aussi au début hahhaha), ou certains ne vont pas avoir de réaction du tout (c'est aussi possible) ... :)

Tout d'abord, nous avons commencé notre journée avec le petit-déjeuner à notre endroit où nous aimons passer du temps, au Hema (Cher Hema, vous feriez mieux de sponsoriser mon prochain article quand je parlerai de vous à nouveau) =P
Et puiiisss nous avons fait un CASTING POUR DISNEY CHANNEL! Whaaaaa - Je sais, un truc de dingue! Peut-être que certains d'entre vous étaient également présents ce jour-là, 17/6? Eh bien, le rêve était réel, ma première audition pour un rôle d’une série télévisé qui c’est bien passé car le même jour le soir, j'ai eu un appel: «Jonathan Goldstein est très intéressé pas votre talent!», ce qui signifie que j'ai bien été sectionné! =D Mais les programmes que je devais choisir n'étaient pas appropriés pour moi. Et comme vous le savez, je suis une personne qui repense trop les choses, un jour ne m'a pas suffi pour prendre une grande décision (pour une énorme chose qui pourrait changer ma vie). Bien que j’aie fait l'audition, ce qui était amusant et intéressant pour moi et en plus de ça que j’ai pu faire avec mon amie, je n'ai rien perdu, j'avais le temps haha! Non, mais sérieusement, je suis contente d'avoir franchi une étape de ma zone de confort pour essayer de faire quelque chose que je n'ai jamais pensé que je ferais (jouer un rôle devant un véritable acteur américain). Positive Energy! =D

Plus tard après notre audition, nous sommes allés à un petit restaurant pour un lunch (qui s'est transformé en une expérience étrange: voir des personnes se balader nues sur leurs vélos!). Ce petit restaurant Bia Mara se trouve dans la ville de Bruxelles, à côté d'un autre restaurant que j’aime beaucoup, Peck 47. J'ai oublié les plats que nous avons pris exactement mais c'était de délicieux poissons avec de pommes de terre frit (qui étaient un peu trop secs à mon gout) et des boissons très bonnes! Nous avons passé une si belle journée. Avez-vous déjà été mangé à ce restaurant? Si oui, l'avez-vous aimé? Si non (pas encore), je le recommande - un bon service et des employés agréable! :)

 

Bruxelles Les Bains

A mini day out w/ my siblings // Une petite sortie entre famille

Hello Sunnies! How is your summer going?
Like every summer Brussels has this event going on: Bruxelles les bains ! That is where I was last Sunday with my little niece and siblings! What a fun and chill afternoon we had?!! Bruxelles les bains has now not only one side but two sides; things are getting bigger ayyeee! You have to go there one day if you’re in Brussels! There are a lot of little restaurants and things to discover. There’s also a ‘Kids Corner’ that’s why this cutest little baby girl Aaliyah was with us. =)

This is what I looked like! It was 23 degrees so I went (again) for a simple look. A kinda boring one but my tshirt adds a little fun to it. My mustard tshirt was bought last year and is from Primark, jeans are like you can tell vintage and my shoes are from Nike. Bag is from H&M. =)

Bonjour Sunnies! Comment se passe votre été?
Comme chaque été, Bruxelles organise cet événement: Bruxelles les bains! C'est là que j'étais dimanche dernier avec ma petite nièce, mon frère et mes sœurs! C’était une journée amusante ! Bruxelles les bains a maintenant non seulement un côté mais deux côtés; les choses s’agrandissent a ce que je voie hein  ayyeee!  Vous devez y aller un jour si vous êtes à Bruxelles! Il y a beaucoup de petits restaurants et de nouvelles choses à découvrir. Il y a aussi un «Kids Corner», c'est pourquoi cette petite fille, la plus jolie, Aaliyah était avec nous. =)

Et voici a quoi je ressemblé! Il fessait 23 degrés donc j’ai (à nouveau) opté pour un look simple. Un peu ennuyeux, mais mon t-shirt à la moutarde  lui apporte un peu de fun. Je l’ai acheté l'année dernière et il est originaire de Primark.  Le jeans est vintage et mes chaussures sont de Nike. Le sac est de H&M. =)

“The color pink makes everything look pretty."

Hello my beautiful Sunnies ! I hope you’re having a great weekend! Right now am just chilling on my couch while watching Netflix (House of Card). I had family over and now they left so I thought that’s it’s time to make time for my blog as well :)

I had a great week, did you? As some of you know (through SnapChat) I got to spent time with family, we always have like a summer reunion during the summer – sooo nice! Love you fam! ♥
And oh, I became part of the Herbalife family héhé – independent distributor and coach to be haaa! More about this very soon! Also I got the chance to host Rwandas Leading Platforms Snapchat (@rwa_360)!  Friday I had a photoshoot so I showed you how it kinda goes for me. I got to shoot with this incredibly extra kind person who is not only my cousin but also a great photographer – Blessy (@blessy_g)! So happy and can’t wait to share the pictures with you!  How was your week? =D

Outfit: PINK! This is a very beautiful pink blouse/shirt. I can see myself wearing it to a wedding but with a white skirt or white pants. And casual I would go for a jeans (duuhhh); black, white, blue, grey, … So this kind of outfit is perfect for a baby shower! Even for church (but maybe that the skirt is too short?) or just for a girls night out.
Do you also wear pink? Or do you think naah that’s not for you? Well, you should try because once I have read that “The color pink makes everything look pretty.” :)


Bonjour mes Sunnies! J'espère que vous passerez un bon week-end! En ce moment, je me détends dans mon fauteuil en regardant Netflix (House of Cards). J'avais de la visite de la famille et maintenant ils sont partis, donc j'ai pensé que c'est l'heure de faire du temps pour mon blog :)

J'ai passé une excellente semaine ! Comme certains d'entre vous le savaient (grâce à et via SnapChat), j'ai passé du temps avec la famille. Souvent nous avons une réunion familiale pendant l'été – c’est tellement chouette! Love you fam! ♥
Ahh oui, je suis devenu membre de la famille Herbalife héhé - distributeur indépendant et bientôt coach haaa! Plus à propos de cela très bientôt! J'ai également eu la chance de « hoster » le snapchat du rwanda (@rwa_ 360). Vendredi, j'ai eu un shoot photo, alors je vous ai montré comment ça se passe un peu (pour moi). C’est cette personne incroyablement gentil et qui n'est pas seulement mon cousin, mais aussi un  photographe - Blessy (@blessy_g)! Je suis tellement contente et impatiente de partager les photos avec vous! Comment était votre semaine?

La tenue: LE ROSE! C'est une très belle blouse / chemise rose. Je peux me voir le porter à un mariage mais avec une jupe blanche ou un pantalon blanc. Pour un look plus décontracté je la porterais avec un jeans (duuhhh); noir, blanc, bleu, gris, ... Ce genre de tenue est parfait pour une baby shower! Même pour aller à l'église (mais peut-être que la jupe est trop courte?) Ou juste pour une soirée entre filles. :) Est-ce tu portes aussi du rose et comment ? Ou est-ce que tu penses que naah cette couleur n'est pas pour toi? Eh bien, peut être que tu devrais essayer parce qu'une fois que j'ai lu que "La couleur rose rend tout plus joli." :)
