That Happy Despicable Song

Finally! Pharrel made a videoclip to his 'happy' song. We both love the Steve Carell movie as we can't stop laughing whilst watching the minions. Proud to still appreciate those animated movies I also was a little bit hesitate to post the song in the 'Despicable' version knowing some people would maybe think it's lame and childlike. Thanks to stylish Pharell it didn't took me five minutes to spread the word.




In my opinion it is a real instant happiness song that you just can't get tired of. And Pharell knows as he is the first artist to make a 24! hour song about this happiness.

Lot's of love,

cheap cheaper cheapest

As the student life is getting closer again, it’s time to reinvent my living situations! So of course I went to Ikea. Once there I couldn’t help but finish the pathway of cheap deco-heaven without noticing the many big frames with those little images in them. Last summer I saw them everywhere: from secondhand shops to the most expensive interior web shops. This is easy peasy, I thought, I can do this too! And so I tried. And I have to say that it really was very effortless! Besides everything that self-made feels way more personal!

The result:

colourful clutch


Totally hot this summer: carrying a clutch. These cute little purses aren’t simply fabulous for evening parties; nowadays we consider them perfectly suitable as handbags on a daily basis.

I love this one because of the pretty colours, the pearls and the sequins. Plus I like the mix of white with bright and neon colours.




Note: Not always easy for carrying but nevertheless truly elegant.






White top- H&M
White sweater- Sandro
Jeans- Maje
Clutch- Zara
Neon ring/ earrings- Six

Gold is old, rosegold is bold


The past few months I always wore some of my vintage watches but I got a bit tired of them. In the beginning they were really original but nowadays you can find these vintage watches everywhere. Though I still like them, I wanted to try out something different. I thought those metallic ones were pretty cool and I’ve never had one like that so I went for it. I absolutely adore the watch-collection of Michael Kors. The choice wasn’t easy! I finally chose this model because I think the colour rosegold is so cute and super trendy. Because of the bigger size, the watch becomes even more a statement accessory.




Denim shirt- Stradivarius
Chain necklace- Mango
Earrings- Forever New 
Watch- Michael Kors


I bought this chain necklace during the sales for only 12 euros. 
Score!

Guess what I found in today's newspaper?
Style icon Rihanna is getting bad critics again! I really feel sorry for her but you've got to admit: the headline is amazing!

Somebody got a present !




I got two presents of Chanel! If you're wondering what it is, scroll down a little further.





It is the classic flap bag in quilted lambskin(2.55) and some matching earrings. This is one of those bags that every woman who loves fashion has to own at some point of her life. It is so beautiful, elegant and timeless. I chose this kind of blue because it's still youthful and you can match it with a lot of other colours and it goes perfect with a jeans. The earrings are also quite iconic but the have a special touch, they are in fact made of leather. 




The Smokey Blue (158) nail polish by Mavala is great as a finishing touch.


Gabrielle Chanel once said: "Innovation! one cannot be forever innovating. I want to create classics." Well she succeeded. Since the launch of this iconic bag in 1955, women all over the world have been carrying this lovely bag around along with a feeling of elegance and confidence.

Brandy Melville


I recently went shopping in Brussels and I discovered a new brand called Brandy Melville. It’s an original Italian brand but inspired by the L.A. lifestyle. The clothes are casual and very original. They also have a lot of special accessories like really cool backpacks and lovely pieces of jewellery. The fun thing about the clothes is that most of them are a ‘one size’.
The decoration of the store is very nice and there is a relaxed atmosphere. I think I almost spent an hour in the store and I finally bought one dress, three tops, two bags and some jewellery.  Luckily the prices aren’t too high.
You even can find more on their online shop: http://www.brandymelvilleusa.com



I bet this is going to be one of my favourite bags for the summer <3

La Laque Couture Tie & Dye Top Coat By Yves Saint Laurent

Nowadays the tie & dye trend is totally hot again. You can find it in clothes, jewellery, make-up and hair. Another name for the trend is ombre which is mostly used for the specific hairstyle.

On the internet you can find a lot of video's on how to tie & dye things yourself. I once tried to do my nails in an ombre effect but it wasn't really a big success.(I'm not that handy ...) Luckily Yves Saint Laurent has now invented a nail-polish who does the tie & dye work for you. One bottle of nail-polish contains 3 colours. Apparently you just have to dip the brush in the nail-polish and paint your nail in one lenght. It sounds pretty easy but does it work?
Well I certainly can't wait to try it out!



Love those colours!


Lots of love,

So... I thought why not nominate 'La Petite Extravagence'? I know we just started out and others deserve it more. But hey, we're just trying to get noticed!

I nominated us in the category 'best blogging duo'. So please nominate us! Thanks in advance!

March favorites

This march it was still extremely cold in Belgium. You couldn’t go out without wearing several layers of clothing, a warm coat, some gloves and a scarf. Plus you had to be careful with your shoes because of all the snow.
We have to admit that it isn’t always easy and fun to go shopping in such conditions. It takes way longer to get to the stores, it’s cold when you walk outside and it takes like forever to undress yourself with all those layers. 
Well luckily modern technology has found a solution for this problem. Nowadays you can just snuggle up in your cosy sofa with your laptop and do some online shopping. 
While drinking a warm cup of tea and a hot chocolate we came across a lot of beautiful clothes on the Internet. We selected our favorite pieces and composed two outfits. What do you think about it?

Apparently the Hand (Khamsa)is a sign of protection that also represents blessings, power, and strength, and is seen as potent in deflecting the evil eye (source: Wikipedia) Well I actually only wear it because I think it's pretty and special but it's always nice to find out about the stories behind the symbols.
Hope you learned something new too ;).
