A meatball a day!

Hi lovely people,

Dorien and I were in Antwerp last week, to visit the different PR agencies were we could discover the new trends and brands for next fall and winter. After that long day we really needed some food to restore our powers! And what is a better place in Antwerp to enjoy a lovely meal then Balls & Glory?

Not only the exterior is pretty, but also the interior is lovely. The long wooden tables filled with grapes in a bowl, a bottle of water and napkins are really cozy looking. The nice reading corner is a lovely place to sit back, relax and enjoy a good lemonade. Another good thing to know is that Wim Ballieu, owner of Balls & Glory, also recently won a Golden Palm for this innovative restaurant concept.

Make sure you definitely try out one of their delicious meatballs the next time you’re in Antwerp, Bruges or Ghent. Because: ‘a meatball a day, keeps the doctor away’! Take a look on their site to check out the right address and opening hours. Big thumbs up for Wim, and I hope one day he would like to seduce Hasselt with his great Balls & Glory-conceptFW 14-008

Much love,

Keep an eye on Tom!

Hi lovely people,

I was spending another day behind my books today. But after a few exams now I’m really looking forward to spend some days in the sun without stress and a lot of fun! Apart from these thoughts, I want to show this great talent from Belgium to you all! Because what can make a person more happy in these dark days then a lovely fashion-post !

Let me introduce you to Tom Van Der Borght! I discovered this wonderful talent on the Fashionclash2013 blogger day. Tom lives and works in Ghent. He is a fashion designer and a graduate of the Stedelijke Academie voor Schone Kunsten at Sint Niklaas. He flawlessly combines modern technology, like digital knitting, with traditional handicrafts. I was immediately impressed by the great colors and awesome prints he used! They are a true stimulation for your senses. Here are some pictures I selected from his latest APONYCALYPSE AW 13/14 collection. The colorfull knitted sweaters are one of my favorites! I’m also a big fan of the video he made for this collection. I don’t think these pictures need further explanation, so watch and enjoy!
