U2 ieTour (Antwerp 1 + 2)

I don’t do heroes, but when it comes to a band like U2 it’s hard not to. This week I was lucky enough to attend my fourth tour, including my sixth and seventh concert, of the four most awesome Irish lads.

Over the weekend my mom and I finally made it to the Dries Van Noten expo at MoMu Antwerp. I had missed out on the original exposition at the Musée des Arts Décoratifs but was happy to hear the expo would also visit Antwerp.

a sparkling sunday

With our ten year anniversary approaching earlier this month, I hinted at my husband that my wedding band could use a bit of sparkle. He kept this in mind, I guess, ’cause on our anniversary he presented me with a small note that mentioned I could pick out a ring with him.

(online store/creative studio) and Sofie Claes (fashion designer) are involved. Let me introduce you to The Plantshop. Based in Antwerp,…

Apéros Bordeaux

If there’s one drink I won’t say no to, it’s a good glass of wine. So, when the lovely Stephanie Duval invited me to the latest edition of Apéros Bordeaux, I couldn’t say no. Apéros Bordeaux could best be described as an after work party hosted by Bordeaux wines at a cool location, for now…

online tour at the MAS

On May 17th, the MAS in Antwerp finally opened its doors. Finally as in after a project that stretched over more than ten years. I must say that I’m already impressed by just looking at the building, so I’m pretty psyched about the visit I’m planning this summer. If you don’t want to wait that…
