What I’ve been up to lately: I worked my ass off. Remember how I planned this entire summer of fun? Bye bye, never happened, took on 20 jobs and that was it. Just consider it ‘as postponed’ for now. As I mentioned, I’ve been working a lot. For Glam*It (out on september 4th, go buy it or I will delete you from my facebook, just kidding, no I’m not.), and I’m also researching and writing for Tiany’s new tv-show that will go on air in september. (Girlfriend has her own show again, finally! Little known fact about me: I interned for her tv-show Alive.Style 6 years ago.). Alright back to business, I started making ‘a collage’ on Instagram, where I post pics of the fabrics and colours I’m wearing. So feel free to follow me, my name is elspethjenkinsnr1. I’m gonna finish watching the closing ceremony of the London Olympics. You did good London. Proud to be British! Ta taaaaa.
Did you see the shoot we did with skategirls Fenna, Marilyn, Céline and Evelyne in last week’s De Standaard Magazine? We had to make it work on the rainiest day of this year (and I know it hasn’t stopped raining since june 2011), so you can imagine how relieved I am with the result! Thanks for your good spirit, girls!

I’ve got news news news! From next week on: Els, Tiany and me will be working on your fave Belgian magazine again… and parfois more than twice a year – but that’s still off the record – so let’s just say we’re back. I’ll bring the fash back in fash, and Kirilove will be dealing with everything beauty related: so keep an eye out for the september issue, you know it’ll be worth it. And I promise I’ll make you laugh (hell, I’ve been waiting to quote P*trique for 6 months now!). So what happens to my announced summer of fun and friends? Oh, that’s still on! It’s just postponed until mid to late august, and anyway: I found the perfect scent to keep me dreaming about Portofino in the meantime! Watching a documentary about Lemmy now (I decided everyone should be more like Lemmy), and meeting the gang in Antwerp tonight. Stay cool!
Hiya, it’s been ages, I know. But life has been a tad crazy lately, so please forgive me. I arrived back from the UK a week ago, and of course everyone keeps asking me ‘what Vogue was like?’. Well, Vogue was like any other job really: I’ve had some good, bad and extremely amazing days. And in the end I got out of it what I wanted: it was amazing to start at the bottom again and not be part of the rumor mill for a month. And after years and years of brief visits, I got to hang properly with my besties again (there was the surprise visit of Silvana, that really really made my week). I also met some awesome peeps in and outside the Vogue offices, so that’s what it’s all about. SO, another shoot I did with Mous Lamrabat is out in DSM today, so off to the newsagents. I’m off to France now, so see you at the Antwerp Fashion Academy graduate show on saturday? xxx
