3.2.14

Back to my roots


On Sunday I went back to the village where I grew up in. I accompanied my parents and one of their friends to a coffee & cake, raffles event organized by the Women and Mothers society. 

It was more something for older people but my mum had asked me to come along, in order to 'make an appearance' as I hadn't been to the village for many years. 


There were lots of nice cakes and tartines to choose from.


I only had a piece of cheesecake. I swear, I did not eat the following cakes. 


Another part of the event was the sale of home-made jams and handmade embroidered tablecloths. 


Outfit details: dress: DVF wrap dress / bag: Louis Vuitton / shoes: Christian Louboutin. 

Wishing you a great week!

  1. I have been loving what you are doing to yourself this year! What should I begin with? First, love your hair (and matching eyebrow colour). Colour is awesome and compliments your skin tone. Second, your make up. Eyeliner adds a bit of sultriness and playfulness to the look. Thirdly your self confidence and this is indeed priceless. Showing yourself more on blog is a big step forward and you have to believe that you are beautiful inside and outside. 2014 is looking up for you my friend :)

    1. Dear Yun, thanks for these kind words! Last year was so tough for me and I'm finally seeing the light at the end of the tunnel. Showing myself more is really outside my comfort zone but that's what you got to do if you want to evolve. Thanks again. xo

  26. Beautiful lady! How nice it is to visit your village, I think it is important to go back to our roots to better understand who we are. The cakes look delicious, you're so good to only have the cheesecake.

  27. The food looks so yummy and you look stunning here! Love your makeup. Sometimes we have to do things for our parents but it can turn out to be kind of enjoyable as well!

  30. ok just those cakes alone would get me to that old peoples' event, haha! and that's so nice you went to go revisit your village, it must have felt like a bit of a homecoming. my family is from a little village in poland and i've only been able to visit it once, but when i did there was such a lovely sense of community you don't get to experience in the city :)
