Work was busy in November, so I spent some quiet time at home to balance it out. Stayed indoors - cup of tea and a good book within reach. Painted my bathroom walls a beautiful greyish blue. Went to the FoMu for an exhibition. Drank some café latte at my local coffee bar - and then some. Travelled to Amsterdam for work. Had a couple of dinners with friends and family. Put some wallpaper up in my hallway - love the result!

Soft neutrals are my favourite colours these days. I just bought a soft pink sweater, painted my bathroom walls a greyish blue and want to buy an off-white Berber rug with diamant pattern as pictured above. For more inspiration for your home, take a look at my Pinterest account.
Last week I spent a couple of days in Amsterdam for work. I didn't have much time to explore the city, but I managed to squeeze in a visit to supermarket Marqt. Most people buy their food without any thought, but I love exploring a supermarket. On holiday, it's one of my favourite things to do.
Marqt sells all kinds of food - there's a cheese stand, fish counter, bakery, an array of meat, fruit&vegs are piled up and you can choose from aisles and aisles of fine groceries.
Real food that is produced with respect for nature, animals and humans. Can't argue with that...
Last weekend I went to the FoMu, here in Antwerp. The photography museum is located on 't Zuid, a neighbourhood with beautiful art nouveau buildings, fancy restaurants and trendy cafés. At the moment, there are four exhibitions on various themes. My favourite was definitely the Germaine Van Parys & Odette Dereze-expo. Germaine (1896-1983) was one of Belgian's finest photo journalists. Her sublime black-and-white pictures show important events of our cultural history, but always with a personal and human touch. Odette, her niece, followed in her footsteps and is safeguarding their precious archives until this day. If you're in the area, visit the museum and take some time to appreciate the work of these two extraordinary women. Girl power avant la lettre!
