Easter 2015 photo diary

 














Oh how time flies when you're having fun! Already a week has passed by since Easter... and I didn't even post any photos yet... Well here's a short impression of my Easter celebrations.

Of course we had lots of food... including italian "colomba" (typical Easter cake), deviled eggs, a cheese platter and loads of chocolate!

Easter table inspiration










Easter is only 2 weeks away from now! Have you started planning yet? In case you need some inspiration, take a look at my Easter table setting. I wanted to try something new, so instead of the usual yellow accessories, I used aqua blue, green and pink.
It turned out pretty nice don't you think?

Hello Spring









Hello spring, I'm so glad you're finally here. I can't think of a better way to start the week with a glance at this field of crocuses. Have a wonderful week everyone!

Happy International Women's Day!




Today, the 8th of march, is International Women's Day. I have to admit it's not really something I celebrate and I think neither does the majority of women (at least in my country). But in some countries it's really a big thing. In Italy for example, where practically every woman is given a bunch of mimosa in honour of "La Festa della Donna". So Ladies, this one's for you: Happy International Women's Day!

Antwerp... City of Art!





















In Antwerp... art is everywhere! From Gothic and Baroque churches to Art Déco and Neo Baroque buildings... And it's not "just" the architecture that draws your attention. It's graffiti and street art, it's fashion and it's fashionable people.

While I was in Antwerp for the "Inspirations" exhibition by Dries Van Noten, I also took a guided tour through the city. This so-called fashion walk took us through cute little side alleys, to delightful vintage stores (Rosier 41 among others) and to several fashion designers, including Anna Heylen. (The blue cocktail dress is hers.)

Guide Sophie took us to Saint Andrew's Church, to show us the dress Ann Demeulemeester designed for the Virgin Mary. Incredible! Baby Jesus got a curly wig along the way. What a forward-thinking priest to give Demeulemeester that assignment! (He wants to attract younger people to church.)

Another highlight was the visit we paid to glove store A. Boon. The only remaining glove shop in Antwerp was founded by two Italians in 1882. It was taken over by Arthur Boon in 1920 and has remained a family business ever since. The shopkeeper needed a "model" to try on the gloves, so I volunteered and got the royal treatment.

The perfect treat that I saved for the way home, was the "Boule de New York", also known as the Belgian version of the cronut... yummy! One more reason to visit Antwerp I would say.
