Infinite Variety

Ceesie finished reading a new great book.
After my favorite photographer Marcus Piggott recommended me to read the biography of Marchesa Luisa Casati I went to my favorite bookstore in NYC, located on 52 Prince street in Soho. I'd never heard of Luisa Casati before and I have to say that Marcus was correct, the book is A-mazing.
The Marchesa was a socialite in the first three decades of the Twentieth century. She was the most scandalous women of her time and wanted to be a living work of art.
Luisa was always dressed in the most crazy outfits and was covert from head to toe in leopard, lase and fur. She was infamous for her evening strolls, walking around with snakes and had all kinds of monkeys in her humongous houses.
She was obsessed with art and was a muse for many famous artists. Even today she is still an inspiration for many designers such as John Galliano, Tom Ford and Karl Lagerfeld and her life has been the subject of many movies and plays.
Ceesie loves reading biographies, you learn and read at the same time.

Peonies are my favorite kind.

Disposable camera

Ceesie has start with buying disposable cameras... When I was younger my parents use to take pics all the time and make photo albums from every holiday, but now... We barely do that. With a Digital camera you don't develop your pictures as much, they just stay on your computer, which is kind of stupid. I think a disposable camera is just so much more fun, you can't always remember what pictures you took or you can't look them up.
So when you develop them it's always one big surprise.
And ceesie LOVES surprises!

Life ball

Ceesie was asked to work on a charity event... And so I did!
The brand Dsquared was doing a big fashion show at the Life ball this year.
The life ball is the biggest charity event in Europe supporting people with HIV or AIDS.
So I flew this weekend from Belgium to the city of princess Sissi, Vienna.
To work on an unforgettable show, and I have to say that the show was totally over the top. Janet Jackson, Amanda Lepore, Anna Dello Russo and Bill Clinton were all there, together with more then 6000 people watching us, all dressed up in the craziest outfits you can imagine!
Ceesie loves charity and is happy he did something good for the people who are HIV positive.

Ceesie felt like a Victoria secret angel.
My sexy Dsquared outfit. ;-)

hats will roll

Ceesie just finished shooting the new Borsalino campaign in Milano.
For the ones who never heard of the brand, Borsalino is one of the oldest hat brands in the world. The brand was established in 1857 and is still well known for his great quality and chicness.
And I have to say that some of the hats are also amazingly beautiful.
I think they are just so classy and they give an extra touch to your outfit.
After the shoot I was walking to my hotel and I wondered what happened with people wearing hats? Back in the days men and women used to wear hats all the time... and now you barely see someone wearing a nice classic hat in the street. So, me, Ceesie has decided to make my white Borsalino hat my new summer item.
Ceesie just LOVES a hat on a head!

Coffee break

Ceesie just broke his own coffee break record!
I haven't had a coffee for over a month now...
I don't really know why I did this coffee break thing.
Maybe to be more "healthy"? or maybe just to challenge myself?
But being in Milan I just can't resist the best cappuccino's in the world.
How come that they are so good here? That's a question I'm asking myself for over 3 years now... I mean... I travel the world, but there is just no better place then Italy to drink cappuccino's.
Am I right or am I right?

Long Island Ice-Tea

My friend Erin invited me to spent the weekend at her parents house in Long Island and I have to admit, I was positive surprised!
After spending so much time in one of the biggest cities of the world it's sometimes nice to escape from the craziness. I mean... Is there anything better then waking up with the sound of birds and to breathe in some fresh ocean air?
So that's exactly what Ceesie and his friend did.
We went for a walk at the beach, went for seafood at an authentic clambar, went shopping at target (my favorite American store), discovered fluff, and had a real American BBQ. And I'm telling you there was A LOT of food involved.
Grilled shrimps, Buffalo wings, Ribs with BBQ sauce, Lamb chops and I'm not even telling you about the dessert. Oh Boy!
Ceesie just loves those little trips outside of Manhattan, gives me energy and peace.

cinco de mayo

Yesterday was one of Ceesie's favorite holidays: Cinco de Mayo!

The date is to commemorate the cause of freedom and democracy of Mexico during the first years of the American Civil War.

I never heard of cinco de mayo before I came to NYC. In Belgium we don't have that many Mexicans so no reason to celebrate I guess?

But I've decided that I gonna celebrate Cinco de mayo from now on every year.

I don't care where I'll be, I'll just gonna have fun, party and drink frozen margaritas till I don't remember my own name! HA!

And that's exactly what I did yesterday!! I celebrated it as it should be. ;-)

Ceesie was HAMMERED aka shit faced aka drunk as Hell!

After drinking 9 frozen margaritas, what do you expect??

up to the next one! a su salud!

Young Hollywood

Do you guys remember the days when Lindsay, Nicole, Paris, the Olsen twins and Mischa Barton all were friends?
Every week there were new gossips of them in the magazines... for driving under influence/ Caught on tape taking cocaine/ Going to jail (for a few hours)/ Rumors of anorexia/...
Well Ceesie honestly misses those days.
Since they're no longer friends, I'm no longer obsessed with young Hollywood.
I mean the Disney kids? Hannah Montana? Tyler Swift? Are NOT rock' n roll at all, and they don't have a great style either.
I just loved searching for paparazzi pictures of them when I was a teenager.
