A common question for those who have a monochrome wardrobe or wear a lot of black. I used to answer with 'black is a colour' or 'my scarf has colour in it', but recently I just don't find myself looking for excuses as to why I don't wear a lot of colour. It's just my style and it's what I like.

It has taken me, well, all my life to find something that I feel a 100% comfortable with. Okay, 80%, let's not get cocky. And I do like colour, don't get me wrong. I loove colour, on other people. I admire people who have colourful wardrobes and always look stylish as f*ck. I'm not like that, I need to be able to pick up 2 items from my closet and have them work together.

So, after 3 years of morning stress I threw out practically my entire closet. I only kept the things I wear regularly, which were black jeans, black shirts and tops and jumpers... Needless to say, I was left with nothing. So I had to buy some new things, mostly layering items so I can use them in the Summer and Winter (because cheapskate, right here). But I did expand my colour palette; I now own black, white, grey and khaki items and everything matches. It's a dream come true for the anxious, indecisive souls...

I can now proudly say that I have a capsule wardrobe; everything matches, I can get dressed in 5 minutes and I can easily go from day to night with the addition of a little bit of sparkle or a blazer. Want to know how to build your own capsule wardrobe and live stress-free (at least when it comes to your clothes)? Leave a comment down below.

Being in my last year of university/college, we're expected to intern somewhere, either in Belgium or abroad. I chose the latter. I'm all for gaining new experiences and discovering new places, so this should be one hell of a ride.

I'm going to be doing my internship at the University of Buckingham. And I'm as giddy as a child on Christmas morning. Sadly, I still have some things to do before I can actually start my internship. But I have faith that it'll all work out wonderfully.

I will be sharing all of the steps I undertake. Like how I obtained my internship, finding housing, cost of living, living with roommates (note: I live alone now, it's going to be strange), discovering Buckingham and England in general. So if there's anything you would like to know or read about, let me know in the comments down below.

PS. There will be photo's in future posts
