I love the colder months. It’s my favourite time of the year! I can’t wait for December, to eat all the Sinterklaas (Saint Nicholas) candy and to start decorating for Christmas. There’s plenty of festive blog content on its way. But let’s just hold on with the Christmas blog content for just a little bit longer. I thought I’d take you through all of the things that have made me smile lately, before I actually do a dedicated December related one!
As you may already know, I went to university in Ghent, Belgium. I have spent a good 4 years of my life living there and I absolutely loved it. If I had the opportunity to go back, I wouldn’t think twice about it. It’s such a vibrant city with beautiful buildings, friendly people and good food. Throughout the years I’ve gotten to know so many amazing places in Ghent so it wasn’t easy narrowing it down to a more or less reasonable number but hey, here are 44 things to do in Ghent, that I would recommend (see what I did there?).
I’ve said it before but there’s just something about autumn that makes me feel so cozy, all warm and fuzzy inside. I love the changing colours, the falling leaves, wearing cosy sweaters… Although the weather wasn’t great (it was raining. Again. Damn you Belgian weather!), we went on a little autumn walk in nature reserve De Teut, which is located in Zonhoven, Belgium.
I love introducing you to new home bits. As you probably know I love interior design and I couldn’t be happier with these 2 recent additions to my little apartment: the Xala led lights, Lilly and Olly! And what makes this even better; Xala is a Belgian brand and I love introducing you to Belgian design.
