We’ve asked for it, we begged for it…And it finally happened! Two delicious brands can now be found in the centre of Brussels…The infamous Ladurée and Meert. Both will provide us with some well deserved sweet warmth during the winter :)
I must say I am quite happy to be able to buy macaroons with having to go to Lille. We do have other amazing delicacy makers here in Brussels but one more cannot hurt right? Same goes for Meert, their waffles filled with vanilla are heavenly and would go perfectly with a hot latte or cocoa…Can’t wait to go shop especially with Saint Nicolas and Christmas approaching!!
So if you are in Brussels reminder to go to the Sablon to buy macaroons from Ladurée and make a stop at the Galerie des Rois to load up on waffles and chocolates (7 Galeries du Roi ) :D
What have we done on Saturday…Mmmmmmh…We spent the afternoon and a good part of the evening at the IBTC 2014 and damn it was good :D Year after year the convention gets better and better with more artists and shows. If you like tattoos but you don’t know what you want or who will ink your skin forever, this is the place to be!
I got to meet the lovely Swedish Ellen Westhorn and other artists that were just amazing, very nice and inspiring. We left knowing that if we go to Barcelona, my boyfriend and I will probably not just be there on holiday visiting the city and sipping on cocktails (there is a lady tattooing there that is juuuuuuuuust incredible!!)…This year’s show were diversified, ranging from a one hour burlesque show starring Amber von Tassel and many more sexy ladies, to motorbikes show and concerts. It was a very nice way of spending a Saturday afternoon and meeting great people :)
In short the IBTC is totally worth it!
Do you know a better way to spend the last sunny Sunday of the year than going on a romantic trip to Bruges? If you do, please tell me :)
So as you understand, I spent my Sunday in Bruges with my darling and it was simply lovely! We decided to go the day before without really thinking it through but it was the right thing to do. We had been pondering for a while whether to go or not, for how long but in the end just going was the best option. We got to visit a beautiful city, discover its history and architecture and I must say I can’t get enough :) I just looooooooove Bruges and it would have been great to stay there a bit longer but hey I had to work on Monday …
Here are a few pics of the day, enjoy :)
On Friday, we celebrated Halloween with a few friends :) It took my boyfriend and I about a week to get all the decorations ready and by decoration I mean : cutting dozens of bats and sticking them on our walls, making spider webs, carving pumpkins, getting the menu ready, ordering food tags and more! This is the first year we host a Halloween party but we were successful and next year, we will start sooner to look for cool ideas to make a creepy night!
On Monday and Tuesday, we hosted our annual Forum and Award Ceremony, but this time we chose to stay in Brussels. The Forum took place at the Dolce la Hulpe and the Awards were celebrated at the Autoworld Museum. Those two days were exhausting but so exciting too!
You may have heard that a Belgian fashion brand is making its way to the top and bloggers are starting to spread the word! O’ren is a Belgium based, High end Prêt-a-porter clothing brand creating probably the best sweaters of the season! Have a look
How cool are these sweaters?! This particular line “Collection Capsule Olympus” is inspired by antic Greece and its gods! Personally, I love the design of this line and it looks nicely cut :) Will definitely buy one from the #TeamMedusa for 89€ :D
