Project // Shark Attack with Belmodo.TV & Philips PerfectCare

As you can tell from the picture above, I'm not a fan of ironing -- And I think I'm not the only one. ;) I must admit that I've never ironed in my life. Shame on me! So when Belmodo.tv contacted me for a project with them and Philips to promote their new PerfectCare iron, the first thing I thought was: "Wow, talk about major contradiction!".

But apparently, the PerfectCare is the new it-iron among all irons:
you can iron all fabrics with it at once - no need to sort your clothes out before ironing - and if you forget the PerfectCare on a blouse (or other item), don't worry. Somehow, the PerfectCare doesn't burn your clothes when you forget to turn it off. Being as clumsy as I am, that might be a plus. That's why I said 'yes', to see it all with my own eyes. And who knows, maybe I'll enjoy ironing after this. ;)

To promote the PerfectCare, Belmodo.tv and Philips are going on a Strijk A Pose-tour in Belgium, searching for 12 girls of which one will become the ultimate PerfectCare Lady. They will stop in 6 cities and each city is represented by a fashion blogger and a 'random' girl they'll spot on the streets. Both girls will get a Vero Moda-make over and will get a street style shoot where they'll have to pose with the PerfectCare. When the tour is over, there will be an online voting which will choose the ultimate PerfectCare Lady.

Guess what? On Saturday 8th October, I'll be the representing fashion blogger  of the PerfectCare / Strijk A Pose-tour in Hasselt! If you happen to pass by the Vero Moda-store in the Hoogstraat, beware, 'cause we might pick you to represent Hasselt with me.

If you're the chosen one, you will get some fabulous prizes:

* a Vero Moda-make over, including 200 euros shopping budget and getting your hair and make up done;
* a street style photo shoot with some professional people;
* some Philips goodies, but I'll leave that as a surprise;
* and a chance to be chosen as the ultimate PerfectCare Lady.

The online voting will go from 10th October 'till 17th October on the Strijk A Pose-website and they'll choose the PerfectCare Lady on 18th October.

Are you the PerfectCare Lady? Lucky you, 'cause you'll get:

* the PerfectCare iron, of course;
* a personal 'ironer' who'll come to your house and iron your clothes for two months;
* 4 tickets to the Weekend Fashion Awards in Brussels on Thursday 20th October -- Perfect for a girls night out!

I'm so excited for this project and who knows ... Maybe we will pick you!
See y'all there!

P.S.: The iron on the picture is NOT the PerfectCare!


Personal // Unpublished

There are a lot of pictures I take that somehow don't make it to the blog. I was going through them on my laptop and I thought it would be nice to share them with you. I'd also like to apologize for 'neglecting' the blog lately. School has started again, so I'm kind of busy with that.

As for the Clinique-contest, I'd like to already thank those who voted for me. For those who'd still like to vote, this is the last chance. You can click HERE to vote for Shark Attack.

I also have some exciting news concerning a project together with Belmodo.tv and Philips, but I'll tell you all about it in the next post!

Vote & Win // Clinique Beauty Coaching with Shark Attack

Hi everyone!

I'm glad to announce a collaboration between Clinique and Shark Attack.
I've been using Clinique products for quite some time now and was introduced by my sister who is a huge fan of Clinique. Thanks to her, I started using the products myself and I couldn't be happier with the results.

So when Clinique asked me to test the '3-step-plan', I immediately said 'yes'. My experiences were nothing but positive, and I advise you all to get your skin type tested at the beauty store, so that you can get the products appropriate for your skin type.

Now, for the best part:
Together with 3 other bloggers, we had to write a review on the products. The reviews are online now, and the blogger with the most votes can win a Beauty Coaching at the Clinique Head Quarters. But that's not all... The winning blogger is allowed to bring 7 Belgian readers with her!

So, do you live in Belgium and do you want a chance on spending a day with me getting pampered at Clinique? Go to the FACEBOOK-PAGE and click on 'STEMMEN'. You can vote 'till the 26th of September and the Beauty Coaching will take place on the 15th of November! 

I hope to win so that I can finally meet some of my Belgian readers!
I'm sorry for my readers who aren't living in Belgium, I wish you could all participate. :(

Outfit // Bling Bling

A little bit of sunshine and no rain was enough for me to finally wear these glitter wedges I got during my holiday in Crete. While they look like killer machines, they are actually pretty comfortable. The high-wasted pants are my latest purchase. I got them at COS a couple of days ago. I wasn't too sure about them, but my mom persuaded me to get them. They're slowly starting to grow on me...

I've been feeling a bit under the weather lately, which also shows on these pictures - sorry for that. Some people asked me why I always look down on most of my outfit pictures, and to be honest:I really don't know why I do it. I guess it's my signature pose or something? :D

Remember, it's the last day to enter the Chanel give away HERE and to vote for me on the Bloggers' Wardrobe-comeptition HEREGood luck and please help me out one last time!

New // Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty

If you follow me on Twitter, you may have read that I "bought an amazing fashion book at a ridiculously good price." Since it is a gift for my sister who just moved into her new apartment (hence the protection foil on the cover), I couldn't reveal the title on Twitter.
Well, now I finally can:

'Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty'.

The cover shows a picture of a skull which transforms into Alexander McQueen's face, depending on how you look at it. I think this book will look great on my sister's coffee table, don't you?

Not being able to go at the 'Savage Beauty'-exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum Of Art at New York, this book is a great option giving a close and detailed look at all the pieces which were displayed at the exhibition.

The photographs in the book were taken by the talented Sølve Sundsbøaccompanied by inspirational quotes from McQueen himself. The items displayed at the exhibition were taken from McQueen's Graduation Collection, from his time at Givenchy and from the Alexander McQueen Archive as well. At the end of the book, you'll also find an interview with Sarah Burton, who's the Creative Director of the brand Alexander McQueen today.

I still can't believe Lee Alexander McQueen is really gone, but with great initiatives like these, I'm positive he will never be forgotten. Below are just a couple of the many great photographs and items in the book. It's a must have for every fashion / Alexander McQueen-admirer out there. I'm sure you'll love it!

Event // Miele Catwalk 2011

Last Thursday, I had the honor to attend the Miele Catwalk 2011-event at Brussels.
It was as if the whole Belgian fashion 'world' came together to have a look at Belgium's famous, but also new and upcoming designers' collections.

This was probably one of the most fun events I attended in my blogging 'career':
I got the chance to talk with Edouard Vermeulen, designer of one of Belgium's most famous fashion houses Natan, who's a really charming and friendly fella. I even spotted Prince Laurent, a member of our royal family. As you may know, I'm not a big fan of anything close to royal families (and everything that comes with it), but it's always strange to bump into a Prince who blended into the crowd as if he weren't any royalty at all. Plus, I was in great and fun company, which is always a great ingredient to have a fun night.

I was sitting at the 3rd row, and it was kinda hard to take decent pictures, since the people in front of me kept moving all the time. Nonetheless, I did my very best and I hope you can appreciate the pictures.

Below's a 'selection' of my favorite items of my favorite collections.
Let me know which one's your favorite!

P.S.: Still 5 days left to enter the Chanel give away HERE.
P.P.S.: Also 5 days left to vote for me in the Bloggers' Wardrobe competition! I'm not a fan of shameless self promotion, but since it's a concept I actually like, I'm willing to make an exception. You can find all the info on how to vote for me HERE.


Outfit // Knitted

I finally got my hands on this knitted cardigan, designed by my friend and co-blogger Tiany Kiriloff. Some of you may remember Shark Attack attending the preview event of the Tiany Kirilove for Vero Moda-collection. This cardigan immediately caught my eye that day, and I'm glad to own it now. I'm usually not a big fan of winter clothes at all - and I don't own that many either - so this cardigan is a great addition to my winter closet.

The Aerosmith band shirt is one of my purchases during the Forever 21 store preview last week. I'm such a sucker for band shirts and every time I see one of my favorite bands, I must have it.

P.S.: Don't forget to enter the Chanel give away HERE.
P.P.S.: Please vote for me in the Bloggers' Wardrobe competition on Facebook, if you want. You can find out how HERE.
P.P.P.S.: And thank you to Lisa from Liesewiesje for writing a post about the competition, trying to help me win. That's so sweet of you!
P.P.P.P.S.: I have some serious issues when it comes to selecting pictures... Just so you know and you can't say I didn't warn you when you see another picture overload.
