November has been quite hectic, maybe it’s just me being a perfectionist but I had a lot of work for school. I’m a marketing student as you probably all already know and I had so much stuff going on. We did have a lot of deadlines the last couple of weeks. I even had no time to make videos, so sorry for that. Nevertheless, there were some amazing events last month. I like to give you an overview of the month November in pictures.
Tutu Chic Birthday Party
If you’ve ever been to one of Freya’s parties, you definitely know that these parties are fantastic. Think of pink and glitter everywhere. It was Freya’s birthday and she wanted to celebrate this with us. She welcomed us at her shop in Antwerp and we waited for everyone to arrive. At that time we didn’t know what to expect. She took us outside to a certain building. There was this huge table full of cupcakes, sweets. Congrats Freya, I loved it!
De Hovre PR
Press agencies open their doors for bloggers, journalists and other enthousiasts twice a year. It’s always nice to catch a glimpse of new collections. I was really looking forward to press days @ De Hovre PR. it was a rainy day, a nice cup of coffee was more than welcome. Tom and his coffee-truck Bar Barista welcomed us, isn’t this one of the coolest little coffee trucks you’ve ever seen? I’m a coffee lover, couldn’t survive a day without coffee.
I got to know Fin du Jour, a beauty concept store in Ghent. They offer a wide variety of brands such as Environ, Jane Iredale and Byredo. I discovered some brands I had never heard of before. These holiday candles from the Christmas collection of Diptyque are adorable. Beautiful packaging and a pleasant scent, the perfect Christmas gift if you ask me.
Susanne Kaufmann was my next discovery, she is known for her organic skin-care products. Every product is packed with organic oils and plant ingredients. This bottle of Hazel Bath really caught my attention. Lately I’ve been really into organic skincare, the cosmetic industry uses a lot of chemicals. I like to have some more information about the ingredients of the skincare products I use.
If you’re following me on Instagram, you’ve probably already seen some of these pictures. Clio Goldbrenner, Lolo, Twice as Nice, Nunu Activewear, Quinette and Tutu Chic are some of the brands I absolutely love so it was nice to have a little sneak peek of these new collections.
Maison PR is one of the 3 PR agencies we visited that Thursday. When we entered the building I discovered Hernö, a gin from Sweden which has been awarded quite some times. This gin contains eight botanicals from around the world such as Juniper berries from Hungary, coriander seeds from Bulgaria and black pepper from India. I loved the subtle taste.
Voya is one of the brands I had never heard of. It all started as a family business in Strandhill where the family runs seaweed baths. Hand-harvested seaweed is being used to deeply mositurise skin and promote healing.
The last PR agency on the agenda was Walkie Talkie. With brands such as Greenpan, Palladium, Neubau eyewear, Carrefour and Playmobil they do have a wide variety of brands. One of the brands I absolutely loved is We Are Labels . They recently opened a shop in Antwerp. We Are Labels offers exclusive and international brands that are very affordable. 80 % of the collection is priced between €40 – €80.
Nee makeup session
@ Room For Style
I had a great time with my mother @ Room For Style. This multibrand shop in Mechelen is the place to be for trendy brands such as Highly Preppy, Given, Denny Rose and Relish. In fact, most of my outfits are from this shop, I always find what I’m looking for over there. A professional makeup artist gave us tips and both my mother and I felt amazing.
Have a nice evening,
