I’m looking forward THIS much to my next trip to Milano with Charlotte in May! It’s been a while since we diva city tripped together, so it will be a great opportunity to catch up. It’s hard to not talk every single day about what a beautiful country Italy actually is. Each two weeks, my Italian friend, Chiara, still sends me a text message to ask me how I’m doing. Talkin’ about a great friend!

Today, I came across this nice place in Milano on Pinterest (hey, follow me!) and I instantly cheered up when I saw the bright colours. This makes me want to visit Milano (although it will be my 7th time) even more!!


French bulldog

eddieI want a dog!

Lately, I’m considering the idea of taking a dog in the near future. The only problem is: I do not have a garden where the hairy quadruped can play in. Although there is a doggy-poop-park right in front of my door, which obviously is a nice bonus!

This weekend, my twin sister @jasminadekrem and I were cooking at @klijr’s homey home for @FlairBelgie. Her french bulldog ‘Eddie’ is the cutest dog I have EVER seen (except for Boo, of course ^^). Just look at his eyes!

Today, I found this video of Tillman, the skateboarding bulldog. Watch and be amazed!

Music Monday: Santigold

Don’t look ahead there’s stormy weather

This Music Monday goes out to my ‘bitchezz’ M & A. We went to Oslo together with three friends during the last week of June and had an amazing week. I will never forget the overdose of coffee (as our hotel was situated on top of a coffee bar), the delicious kanelboller (addicted much?), the salmon which we already had during the breakfast, the mini BBQ at the park, the most beautiful guy alive at Rodeløkken kafe at the peninsula of Bygdøy who served the perfect carrot cake (true story), our random swimming in lakes + being discoverd by the local policemen (funny true story, as we didn’t know we were swimming in Oslo drinking water, bitches be crazy!), our roadtrip  including singalong songs of Santigold and Kanye West, the proposal on top of the Oslo Opera House during Midsummernight, …  I wanna go back!

This weekend, my sister will visit Oslo together with her boyfriend. I’ll try to convince her to bring me some kanelboller. YUM! (:

Family moments

This friday, three of my nieces came to visit me in Ghent. We had such a great time ^^

Say Something

What would you like to do before you die?
Say Something is a new city-project by an anonymous Ghent based person. He or she wants to create an open discussion among the Ghent-population. The open questions are on the posters, the dialogue depends on the different responses of the participants.

How does it work?
When you see a poster of Say Something in the streets of Ghent, you can answer the question by SMS or email. The most remarkable answers are posted on the Facebook page. That’s where I found this picture (and the one of Budapest which I posted a few weeks ago). I’m love love loving these new creative projects in this vibrant city.

I think I’ll put coconut-pineapple bowling on my to-do-list for this summer.
What a wonderful waste of time ^^

Beautiful Budapest

Diva city trippin’: Budapest


My sister @jasminadekrem and I are going to Budapest to relax and to try out the huge amount of coffee bars they happen to have over there.

Looking forward! (:



Yesterday evening, I went to my second Twunch.
Uhm, scusi?
A what?

Actually, a Twunch is a lunch together with people which are on Twitter. There are people you know and, of course, people you don’t know or of which you only know their Twitter name. A fun part of the concept, besides the food that is.

Yesterday evening, I went to a Twunch organized by Sony Music Belgium at Bar Buro, a temporary hotspot situated in Ghent. It turned out to be an exclusive pre listening to Miike Snows new album: Happy To You. I really like the first single “Paddling Out”, but also the rest of the album sounds very promising. Check it out here

While listening, we got some gooood nomz (salmon with rucola and chocolate sprinkels and a delicious moelleux au chocolat, as Bar Buro serves Chocolate Bar Quetzals’ chocolate products) and drinks.

Looking forward to my next Twunch! (:

Support Kony 2012

2 days online and 23 million Youtube & 11 million Vimeo views…

KONY 2012 is a film and campaign by Invisible Children that aims to make Joseph Kony famous, not to celebrate him, but to raise support for his arrest and set a precedent for international justice. He is one of the world’s most wanted war criminals and we support the International effort to arrest him, disarm the LRA and bring the child soldiers home. You can also make the world a better place by donating only 10 USD (=about €8), or ordering your action kit.

A world in which a project like this succeeds is a world worth living in.

More info on Kony 2012 here.

Music Monday: Bonobo

Everytime I hear this song, it reminds me of my stay in Italy, where I met my amazing colleague Chiara.

This Lunedi Musicali is for her.

In this picture, Chiara stands between my nieces Tine & Anneleen.

A kiss for you

Che cos’è un bacio? 

 Un apostrofo rosa tra le parole “t’amo”.

Run bitch. Run!

I lately discovered that running is a very effective way to smooth the rough edges on my stress profile.
I also learned that I am a little ‘bitchier’ when I don’t exercise for more than a week. (Self-knowledge is the beginning of all wisdom, isn’t it?)

When I need some quiet time, I put on my Asics and walk out the door. I sometimes run with my iPod, but most of the times, I remove my ear buds and listen to the wind in the trees, while I think about my breathing. Gent, the city where I live, has a great culture and night life, but it also offers kilometers of quiet & smooth roads on which to run.

I can really enjoy the solitude of a run (:

Move Eat Learn

When it comes to homemade around-the-world video’s, I tend to lean towards the ones that are classic, simple and “awesome” (throw in a preppy monogram and I’m in heaven). We already saw Matt Harding dancing around the world, but when I saw this video from the Australian guy Rick Mereki, I was instantly smitten.

Rick made a 44-day trip with two friends (one of them is the actor). They visited 11 countries worldwide and came back with a huge amount of footage, all to turn 3 ambitious linear concepts based on movement, learning and food, into 3 beautiful compelling short films…

Here is one of them: Eat (of course).
