Got the monday blues?
Suit up and get your groove on for a WORK-A-TONIC afterwork experience!
Every monday @ The Bar of The Hotel Brussels

This is Work-A-Tonic offers you on a weekly basis! I went for the first time last Monday and I must say I was impressed by the event! Usually the event is held in the bar of The Hotel Brussels (also known as the Hilton) but Monday, we invaded the 27th floor! It was an amazing venue with a great view on the city lights.

So if you are in Brussels, on a Monday and you want to chill –> that’s the place to be!

Happy New Year everybody!

You probably noticed that I’ve been away for quite some time now, well I’ve been buried under an extensive amount of work lately… But anyways, here I am, ready for 2015!

So after Bruges, the Tattoo Convention and my discovery of Ladurée and Meert opening a boutique in Brussels, what’s been going on? Well I lived a little and destroyed my iPhone (At that time I was glad to have my “work” phone).
First, I’ve made some nice fashion acquisitions, can’t stop this addiction I’m afraid. My latest purchases include a jacket from Maje (silver jacquard, absolutely perfect for Christmas and parties), some amazing boots from Vivienne Westwood (sand with straps), I fell in love with a ring from Thomas Sabo (again…) and finally a wonderful black jacket from Patrizia Pepe with some exquisite silver details…

Then, my wish list for 2015 is extending but only with pieces of choice: a good trench, leather pants, some carrés and scarfs, a Céline bag (who knows??). This year, I aim at timeless pieces that make the perfect look, those little things that bring your outfit to the next level effortlessly. Needless to say, Burberry and Vuitton are a must 
In terms of living, we finally have a kickass mattress that I love sleeping on because it is so comfy! Although it did cost a lot, I don’t regret the investment! Damn I sleep well now :D

I spent Christmas in Brussels but right after I went to Strasbourg to enjoy their Christmas markets! This city is so beautiful and charming, I think I could live there…Just not in winter as we experienced the -10 °C and believe me it was cold and I wasn’t that well prepared. On the way back we stopped in Luxembourg, another city we love and I think I found the perfect (sun)glasses. It was only a 3-day trip but it’s a dream come true as I’ve always wanted to see an authentic Christmas city. I wasn’t disappointed.

Finally on the 31st December I decided to visit the hairdresser, something I don’t do that often because I am never happy with the result. Last time, I went to Savagan and ended up with three blond streaks on both sides of my head…And with my hair colour it was visible and ugly. But I decided to get a new haircut, leaving at the door the idea of playing with my colour and it was a good choice. The result is rather good as you will see (I became a selfie maniac)…

I wish you a Happy New Year and stay tuned for more updates from Brussels!

Finally in Brussels!

20 Nov

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

International Brussels Tattoo Convention 2014

12 Nov

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!

From Bruges with love…

4 Nov

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 :)

Happy Halloween!

3 Nov

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!

My work

24 Oct

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!
