Healthy speed dates

Healthy speed dating? What a great idea. I have never done this before and I must say that I was really looking forward to that evening. Well I’m not talking about dating a guy (obviously, I have the sweetest boyfriend in the world). No, I’m talking about speed dating with the people behind different types of brands. In today’s post I like to tell you all about it.  The day started hectic and I had to go from Leuven to Antwerp by car which is like HELL. 2 long hours of annoyance and me swearing passed by… I finally arrived at Les Nuits,…

Meet Pascaud Beauty Innovations

Last Thursday I was invited to the opening of Pascaud beauty institute in Antwerp. Mardge Pascaud is the lady behind Pascaud beauty innovations. She started her search for the perfect balance between inner and outer beauty when she was 19 years old. The philosophy behind this brand can be defined as the beauty triangle: inside out beauty, outside in beauty and zen beauty. These 3 aspects have to be in balance. She knew it’s not possible to only treat your skin, the other 2 aspects are as important. She decided to go studying again (skin therapy and cosmetic chemistry) and developed her own range of products.…

This was Kiehl’s Birthday Bash

Last week Sofie from Philosofie and I attended the Kiehl’s birthday bash. My grandmother loves Kiehl’s and thanks to her I’m one of the Kiehl’s lovers too. I do remember those times when my grandmother came back from holidays and she brought a Kiehl’s lip balm with her for us. Unfortunately these lip balms are not available in Belgium. Well this is for certain: they do know how to organize amazing events @Kiehl’s. This brand  is celebrating its 165 birthday and the entire Kiehl’s team wants to share this hapiness with us. I’ll tell you all about this amazing event in today’s post.   …

Exhibition Rik Wouters @ Momu 17.09.16 > 26.2.17

A while ago I went to  the “Game Changers” exhibition @ the fashion museum in Antwerp, I had a great time and learned about Balenciaga and other well-known designers who wanted to ‘free’ women and give them more space in clothing.  I was of course pretty excited when I received an invitation for the latest exhibition: ” Rik Wouters & The Private Utopia”.  Momu partnered up with the Royal Museum of Fine Arts Antwerp to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the death of Rik Wouters this year. The result is a gathering of work by Rik Wouters and items by fashion designers/ artists.  Read on…

1 day in Leuven – De Langste Dag

In one of my previous posts I talked about De Langste Dag which took place in Leuven today. Unfortunately the weather wasn’t that great but that is normal in Belgium, we never know what to expect. 🙂  My sister had some spare time in the morning so we decided to go to this event. Despite the bad weather it was still a nice day! 31 years ago ‘De Langste Dag’ was created  to unify several small street markets. Right now it is the biggest ‘city street fair’ in Belgium. A lot of artists passed through the streets to ensure entertainment, it sure is an amazing…
