My colleagues have signed me up for auditions for “The Voice”.
You can imagine my surprise when I opened my mailbox last week to find I had an invitation for the first audition-round for the new season!
They invited me to the Medialaan headquarters. I had to be there may 20th at 6 pm and I had to prepare a song. (duration: 60 sec)

For me this instantly meant: STRESS! 🙂 Of course I love to sing, and I would really want to make it to the blind auditions but… am I good enough? To find me a song to sing didn’t take really long. Not only do I love to sing, I also love to rap! (yeah that’s right : RAP! 😉 )
So I chose to do Billionaire by Bruno Mars ft. Travie McCoy.
This is one of my all time favorites: the perfect combination of both singing and rapping. And it’s a fun and happy song! I’ve been singing this one for a while now, and I kinda made my own rendition of Travie’s rap.

Of course it also meant: what am I going to wear? It were only first auditions, but I knew they would be taped and I wanted to look nice! (you never know if it maybe affects my audition 😉 ) I put some thought into it, and I decided to wear all black. Not also is this always a good choice, it’s also slimming… that’s always good, right? 😉
(the camera always adds 10 pounds they say… I can’t really afford that haha!)
I found this beautiful top at ZEB by Astrid Black Label, sleeveless and with a leather collar.
Simple yet fashionable!
I combined it with my black skinny jeans and of course my Chucks. Continue reading

about saturday…

hello

This saturday was a very exciting day for me!
K3 is looking for the new K3, and I signed up and got invited tot the first audition-round!!
First of all, for those of you who are not from Belgium or The Netherlands: K3 is a girl band who make music for kids, have there own tv show and star in movies and musicals.
And me being someone who really loves kids, to sing and dance and K3… I couldn’t resist to apply!

This audition needed to be well prepared: act a one-minute-monologue and sing your favorite K3 song acapella was the assignment. I took a half day off on friday to rehearse! 🙂

But for me this didn’t only mean repeating my monologue and song (over and over again) but it also meant: what shall I wear?! K3 is all about the happy-colourful-vibe so I needed an outfit that said all that!

I dove into my closet and after some careful consideration this is what I chose:

top: h&m | jeans-shirt: Strawberry (NY) | pants: Zara | Sneakers: Dockers | headband: Suiteblanco |sunglasses: Primark

The blue and pink matches really well, and the flower-sneakers and headband where the details that made the outfit complete! 🙂

And then it was saturday! Continue reading
