With my blasted university dissertation and project taking over my life for the past week, poor Shiny Thoughts has been looking less than shiny. But I’m back on track and “Money Bags: How Heritage Made Mulberry Millions” is now bound and ready for hand-in!

Here are the last of my pictures from Antwerp in Belgium – do take a scroll own to see what it’s all about! We discovered this shop called the Chocolate Box near the Cathedral and, well, how could I not stop for photos?! The shop had just expanded to accommodate a seating area and I adored the colour scheme. A very sweet and helpful old lady helped me choose my choccies (I had to, I was in Belgium!)

The weather was lovely so I wore lots of airy, thin layers including my latest splurge, this H&M lace jacket and breezy New Look vest top which I wore as a “dress” to fashion week, much to all my friend’s disgust/bewilderment! My accessories of choice are also presents to myself, ASOS sunnies for a bit of fun and my New Look clutch in a colour I just can’t get enough of paired with pink! Below are some other cute places I discovered on my walks around the city. There was an adorable cupcake shop and a sweet cafe that we only got time to pose outside of! I can definitely advise visiting Antwerp, us Bloggers loved it!

    Great photos. Love your love of colour- you encourage me to move away from my love of all things dark (even on a dreary day like this!) xx

    We have the same glasses! And I love these photographs – you and Carrie are desperately making me want to visit Antwerp!
