Image of Ornella Sacre

Hi! My name is Ornella

Dear visitor, welcome to The Sacred Closet. My name is Ornella Sacré, hence the name for my very own sacred space here on the Internet. I was born and raised in Brussels where, after some adventures abroad, I still reside to this day.

Professionally, I work as a Dermatology resident. What I love so much about my job, is that I’m able to devote myself every day to a mixture of complex pathology and aesthetics forming the path to healthy skin and soul, as well as to my love for mankind and the human psyche. I studied Medicine at the Catholic University of Leuven, and during these intense years of study this blog was a welcome creative outlet. I remember well how I used every spare moment to go out and create content, afterwards sharing every tiny bit with a wonderful audience.

Meanwhile, I'm 25 years old and I just love how I’m getting to know myself better with every day that passes. My friends and family describe me as a daring, entertaining and somewhat out of my mind go-getter. I feel the most energetic when interacting with people, when using my creative potential, when brainstorming on valuable content and when being a motivational, empowering speaker.

"SPF is your BFF" , a tag line you've certainly heard before. But what exactly is SPF, and does SPF alone protect you sufficiently against the sun? To be completely correct, we should use the word sunscreen instead of SPF. In my daily practice, I am routinely asked about what exactly to look out f...

A few weeks ago, my Mom and I spent the weekend at Antwerp's newest luxury hotel: Botanic Sanctuary Antwerp . This five-star superior hotel was created out of a re-established 15th century monastery, forming without a doubt a real asset for us Belgians, as one of the Leading Hotels of the world ! ...
