A Letter To My First Love,

To Brussels, I won’t even waste my words on the hateful people that have tried to take on the magical, eclectic little corner of the world that you are, because their mission to destroy everything that embodies beauty, love and light is in vain. Some are so entangled in their own darkness that they try to… Read more »

Inspired by: Jackson Pollock

This isn’t the first time I’ve splurged on an artsy item, and it probably won’t be the last. From home decor to accessories, I love owning unique, art-inspired conversation pieces that really up the ante of my wardrobe, and this Zadig & Voltaire XS Pollock bag is my latest purchase.  I was minding my business… Read more »

Dazzle me in gold | Brussels

One of my favourite places in the world, and probably the most magical little corner of Europe, is the Grand Place of Brussels. The central square of downtown Brussels is a hub for international tourists, storybook cafés, luxurious chocolate boutiques and is a downright dazzling must-see location by day. However, when you have the privilege of living here,… Read more »

lisa’s graduation party

  Last night was one of my best friends Lisa’s traditional Swedish graduation party, and to sum it up; I don’t think people even go this all-out for their weddings! She hosted it at the stunning Chalet Robinson, an upscale restaurant located on an island in the middle of Bois de la Cambre. There was… Read more »

lunch at: the kitchen

If you’re like me, your go-to lunch place in Stockel is Le Pain Quotidien, close enough to the town square and metro, making it a perfect rendez-vous point if you’re with friends and just need a quick bite. However, if you venture out to the right side of Baron d’Huart, you will come across a… Read more »
