Personal // Highlights Of 2014

New Year's Eve is taking place tonight, in which we will welcome the year of 2015. I can't believe how quickly 2014 passed by. It's feels as if I'm a couple of steps behind, not fully aware of the fact that a new year is upon us. It's like Yoko Ono once said: "Time is a concept humans created" (and I couldn't agree more). 

2014 has been a year of both ups and downs, both personal as blog wise. I had to fight against doubts and writer's blocks more than once, at which I would sit with my laptop on my lap and just stare blankly at the screen. But, on the other hand, I also had the chance to attend some great events, meet inspiring people, purchase some pretty items for my closet and go through some amazing experiences; things I never though would happen when I wrote my first blogpost way back in 2009.

I thought it would be fun to make a selection of my blog's highlights in 2014. 
Are you curious to see which ones made the cut? Here we go! 


New // Chanel Cruise '14 / '15 Sandals

First of all, I'd like to apologize for going MIA for the past couple of days. I decided to take a break from my computer, so I could spend the holidays with my family and friends and enjoy it to the fullest. That being said, I wish you all a belated merry Christmas, filled with joy, happiness and all things positive. I hope you all had a wonderful time with your beloved ones.

Secondly, I'd like to show you my latest purchase: these adorable sandals from the Chanel Cruise '14 / '15 collection, which I found at the Chanel boutique in Antwerp and were a Christmas present to myself. As you may (or may not) know, winter doesn't exist in my mind, nor does it exist in my wardrobe. I can't seem to find even one single piece of winter clothing that I like, which is why I usually skip that process. Instead, I focus on spring and summer. 

I can't wait to wear these beauties with a pair of shorts, dresses or a pair of skinny jeans. They also come in gold, but the color didn't really suit me well with my pale skin and all. Plus, I think the blue color is versatile enough to combine it with various items in my wardrobe.

What do you think of them?



Review // Giorgio Armani Sì Eau De Parfum Intense

"Accomplished. Audacious. Glamorous. An empathic "yes" to these emotions, to taking chances and to having it all. Sì Eau De Parfum Intense accentuates the sensual and elegant facets of the Armani woman. The duality of extremely seductive blackcurrant neo jungle essence, with just a hint of silky freesia, and a timeless chic intense chypre accord. A fragrance of passion, softly powerful, assertive and unmistakably feminine."
Armani Beauty

After wearing Miss Dior Chérie for years, my mom literally forced me to try a new fragrance. So, after spraying and sniffing - literally - a dozen of fragrances and almost passing out, I decided to go for the Giorgio Armani Sì Eau De Parfum Intense. This perfume is a reinterpretation of the Sì perfume that launched in 2013 and is represented by actress Cate Blanchett.

I thought it would be fun to close up on my new buy and to write a review about it. Christmas is just around the corner, so it's always to get inspired for some gifts just one last time, isn't it? 

Here we go!


Beauty // Shark Attack's Top 5 Wishlisted MAC Collaborations

If you follow my blog or my Instagram, I guess it's needless to say that I absolutely love MAC products and their collaborations. And even though MAC is one of the best when it comes to collabs, their are a couple that are still on my wish list. So, I thought it would be fun to put these together with and to enlighten you with my opinion. 

Which collaboration is on your MAC wish list?

Fashion News // Shark Attack & LabelCrush

LabelCrush is a Belgian website that specializes in selling top notch vintage and second hand designer items and is a very safe and trusted method to do so. I say 'safe' because my fellow bloggers and I were invited to the LabelCrush HQ / showroom (as in: designer items EVERYWHERE) last week, where we had the chance to get our own designer stuff professionally photographed and uploaded on the website for free. If you want to place one of your designer items on the website, you only have to pay a small fee for it; if you sell your item, you don't have to pay any commission (unlike other websites). All the profits go directly into your wallet! #score

Shark Attack Press // Various Features

Since I started blogging way back in 2009, I've been featured quite some times online and on paper. Some might say it is something you get used to along the way, but I would strongly disagree. Every time I see my blog or myself pop up on a website or in a magazine / newspaper, I feel extremely honored, proud of myself and my accomplishments and can't stop giggling for an entire day.

Of course, none of this would be possible if it wasn't for you: my readers who keep this me and this blog going. So this article is a nice opportunity for me to thank you all from the bottom of my heart. Thank you! 

Here are my latest features, with one holding an extra special place in my heart.
