Summer of rain

Tomorrow is the 1st of september, wich means end of summer and time to go back to school.
I honestly think I've had my worst summer ever!
When I look back over the last 2 months I have the feeling it was fall and not at all summer. I haven't been to the Belgian coast once, haven't been swimming in the sea and I didn't tan.
And what about all the bbq's and summer drinks, where you can sit outside with just a T-shirt on till 1 am?
Except for the 2 holidays, Lisbon and Tuscany, I didn't had a summer feeling at all.
Normally I'm always so happy to spend my summer in Belgium together with my friends and family, but this time it was an all different experience for Ceesie.
Summer 2011 you SUCKED big time!

Bonsai tree

A few days ago I went to see the new Almodovar movie "La piel que habito" wich is , as always, amazing.
In the movie Antonio Banderas is growing Bonsai trees and I suddenly fell in love with the midget trees.
I think they are so cute and so cool. I mean a 100 year old tree and only 40 cm high??!! crazy no?
So maybe I'll buy myself a little Bonsai next week, so I can start growing my own Bonsai forest.

Bff?

Ceesie cant imagine a world without a best friend, but as I'm growing older I've become more and more realistic about the idea that friendship changes and evolves and your best friend today may not be your best friend tomorrow.
I guess it's just the way it goes... people change, your life changes and your intrests in life change.
When I was a teenager I always thought that the friends I had back then would stay my friends forever and ever. But time shows that's all just an illusion.
Not every friendship is forever.
Sad to say, but I guess that's the way it goes.

The cesar salad cookbook

"The cesar salad cookbook" is coming your way...
Soon after I posted on my blog that I wanted to write my own cookbook a publisher contacted me.
Ceesie all exited and happy went for a talk and discussed his future book plans.
I don't wanna say a lot about it, as it's all still a secret and only the beginning.
But I can tell that the book will be a mix of fashion, models, food and traveling.
And Ceesie might need your help!If you guys wanna send me an email with some tips, recipes or just some cool ideas that would make the book even more unique, you're more than welcome to send them to me. Email: thecesarsaladcookbook@hotmail.com

Fashion Victim

I sometimes wonder if people think of me as a fashion victim...

Am I?

For me fashion is something fun and I don't really think that I try to hard to be "Fashion".

Ceesie just loves to buy new clothes and to look good. I guess it's because I'm always surrounded by the new trends and styles.

But what is a fashion victim?

For me a fashion victim is a shopaholic who only purchases brand- name apparel and will only consider wearing an item that is "the latest trend," regardless of whether or not he can pull it off.

According to Versace a fashion victim is, "When a woman or a man alters their look too much from season to season, he/she becomes a fashion victim."

And I think he is right...

It's just sad to see people trying so desperately to look hip or to be up to date with the latest style. For example; Is there anything more shameful than seeing a women wearing the newest Louboutins heels that are way to high for her? Or a girl saving up all her money for that new It-Bag?

Anyway, remember readers, it's not about the clothes you wear it's about how you wear them! Don't let fashion fool you...

Cookie monster

Ceesie LOVES cookies, ever since I was a kid I'm obsessed with the crispy taste of the delicious delight. It was so bad that my babysitter often called me the cookie monster.
I'm not such a lover for the creamy, juicy and chocolate kind.
You can seduce me more with a dry and hard cookie.
So last week I made one of my favorite cookies, they are the ones I often made when I was a child: Super easy and oh so tasteful.

What do we need for 4 persons:
- 150 grams of flour
- 80 grams of sugar
- little bit of cinnamon
- 60 grams of butter
- a pinch of salt
- 1 egg

How to start:
- Preheat your oven at 180 °c.
- Put the egg, the salt and the sugar in one bowl and start mixing.
- Combine the flower and the cinnamon powder with the rest in the mixing bowl.
- Mix the butter under it as well.
- When you have a good smooth dough you let it rest for 15 minutes in the fridge.
- After 15 minutes you roll the dough out and you start cutting little figures out of it.
- After that you put the cookies for 10 minutes in the oven until edges are set and lightly browned.

Bon appetit! ;-)

Tell me what you don't like about yourself?

I sometimes wonder If I would consider plastic surgery when I grow older... and I don't think I would. I don't need plastic in my body to validate me as a man, at least for now.
Nowadays it's so easy and common to nip and tuck in your body. As a matter of fact I think that everybody knows at least 4 people who went under the knife.
I think it's a little scary... it's just so easy to walk in to a clinic and to fix something you don't like about yourself. I guess I would be afraid that it would turn in to an addiction, as it's just so available and fast.
Don't get me wrong; Ceesie has nothing against it, but I would like to grow old with my face moving.
