The Last Events Of This Summer ~

Every weekend of September there's so much to do! Nearby or far away but it was impossible to be at home during the weekends in September. After a summer of events you've met a lot of photographers and sometimes they still recognize you so they come to talk a little bit, I can enjoy so much from those little moments. On times like those I'm able to say thank you to all those photographers because they are much more talented than I and it's great to have so photos from a whole different perspective.

These are photos from a weekend at St-Laureins, it was a very, very small event so we were only there on Saturday because it was not so far from home.  And I still had other work to do that weekend but it's always nice to go to an event, even if it's only for 1day.
I think it's very clear that we had a pretty good day if you look at the last photograph that we made in the jeep when we were going home. The first three photos are from the same photographer who also was at Wings and Wheels and I loved his photographs, I couldn't wait to see these on his website! More photos from St-Laureins you can find Here.

The next weekend there was an event in Beek in Holland. There are also a lot of events in Holland but it's just to far for me and the group to go with the vehicles to an event there. In April we drove 6h for 250km for that one time a year it's nice but not for every weekend. So sometimes we need to make choises and sometimes that means that we're just taking the jeep with us on the trailer. But for Beek I took all my suitcases and other material with me to school so I could take the train immediately after school so I could go to my boyfriend because for him Beek isn't that far. We were only going on Saturday but when they wanted to go home the others conviced us to stay so we stayed. We had nothing with us but that wasn't a problem! I had a great evening with some amazing people, so thank you for that weekend!

And than we're already at the last weekend of Super September! Again 2 events, both from friends so again one on Saturday and one on Sunday. But on Sunday I could only go in the morning because my dad had to go to work etc. Nikita and her husband still asked me if I wanted to stay but I returned home with my dad... You all have to admit that she looks great in her WAC summer uniform!

Now it's already October and I'm already missing all those events and people! But next week it's the militaria fair in Ciney and after that it will be waiting until December for the Nuts-weekend in Bastogne.

Happy Birthday To This Blog! ~

Can you believe it? Because I can't, I still think that my first post on this blog was just a week ago but tomorrow it's already a year ago, it's just an other proof that time flies! It's actually tomorrow but I don't think that will make a difference...
I have learned a lot about blogging from my own little blog but all those other amazing blogs about Vintage and a Vintage lifestyle. Also all those very nice and kind words in your comments have supported me a lot on this journey through the world of blogging.
It was not always easy to find some time for my blog or the other way: It was not always easy to find some time for my schoolwork because I was busy on this blog...
Cake for the first anniversairy of the WAVES in 1943.
What I'm still trying is to improve my English and writing skills so I can lift this blog to a new level, I'm also still searching for new Vintage things and stories where I can tell you all a lot about and I've still a lot that I want to show you all but the problems with my camera are still not solved and schoolwork is also still laying on my desk and the deadline for all those tasks and tests is coming closer and closer. My parents give me a lot of freedom in all those things I want to do but those numbers on that school report are still very important, yes the life of a student isn't easy but I'm trying everything I can so I can so what I love the most.

There are some things I would love to know from you.
First of all: what do you like about this blog? what would you love to see more here?
Second: are there thinks you would change if this was your blog?
And at last: what would you love to see more here?

Thank you all!

Who let the dogs out? ~

Some time ago I bought this cute dress with little, black dogs at I Love Vintage, I've used a few times to go to work because it's a very comfortable dress that you can wear with heels if you go to a party or with simple sandals if you're just at home during the summer. And I'm already missing that summer! Especially all those events, I was every weekend away, now I'm almost every weekend at home studying, pf... Yes, school has started again and teachers are giving us a lot of tasks and other work.

But I can already start planning my next event: Bastogne! I won't be easy because the weekend is during the exam period but I did it last year so it must be possible this year. 

I had been 15min in front of the mirror to get my hair like I wanted it. Before my mom could turn on the camera the wind came up and that was the end for my hairstory that day.

I had to go to a party when the Belgian soccer team was playing during the World Cup, so everyone had to be black/yellow/red. And I used this dress!
I was also wearing a black hat that I found at a fleamarket that weekend. That game was the only that I saw and it didn't really helped that I was wearing those 3colours and watching that game because they lost that evening. I'm sorry for all those who do love soccer...

My little brother was also ready!
