Belgium: Antwerp – press days

Posted on Updated on


Last Thursday I went to the press days in Antwerp… As this was my first time, I was pretty excited!

I met up with some lovely fellow bloggers (Ines, Merel, Paulien, Natasja, Jana, Nikki) and visited three press and communication agencies… I will let the pictures speak for themselves…

First stop : Yapado

Featured brands are :

  • Geldof confiserie : the best sweets ever… ‘neuzekes’… and to make them even better now also with a layer of fab Belgian chocolate 😛
  • Corine de Farme : budget beauty brand (can’t wait to test that micellar water that was in the goodie bag)
  • Paarl : lovely handbags which can be custom made (I fell in love with that pink/gold one)
  • Mistral : a large selection of beautiful, colourful textiles
  • Sothys : beauty brand which can be bought in beauty salons
  • koffie kàn : everything concerning coffee… coffee machines, accessories and of course the coffee itself!

Second stop : Savvy

Featured brands are :

  • the Rubz : jewellery and accessories which can be bought worldwide (so glad with that fab rubber bracelet!!)
  • Red Juliet : fashion with a nostalgic feel to it (I especially like all the dresses… check that site!)
  • DV Jewellery : beautiful geometric jewellery
  • Sébastien Vandekerckhove : minimalistic jewellery (I’ve got a crush on those long earrings)
  • Mooved : contemporary design with a twist

Final stop : Global Image

Featured brands :

  • Sweet Lemon : shoes, shoes, shoes… loved them all! Those sandals are already on my summer wishlist 🙂
  • Body & Bess : natural beauty products made from the oil of rasberry seeds
  • Nathalie d’Anvers : Antwerp fashion designer… prepare to fall in love when seeing her collection… I know I did!
  • Cavalier : chocolate in lots of different flavours… (made with stevia)
  • De Appelaere : pure and tasty fruit juices
  • Eva Garden : company specialized in functional cosmetic and treatments with essential oils
  • Tuureluure : instabarn/photobooth to make those real time photos at events. On the bottom picture you see me with my partners in crime 🙂 From left to right : Natasja, Paulien, Ines, Nikki, yours truly, Merel and Jana.
  • Louis trendy, colourful frames (don’t I look super smart in those Louis glasses 😀 photocredits Ines.)

I really had a fab time… meeting new people, getting to know new brands & new designs,… and isn’t that what those press days are all about?

Love, Kathleen

    Leuk artikeltje Kathleen!
    Het lijkt me echt geweldig om eens naar zo een evenement te gaan, maar waarschijnlijk ook wel spannend?
