I must say I am a bit honoured as I was nominated for the Unique Blogger Award by the lovely and ever so beautiful Ingrid from the blog IngridMadisonAve which you can find here.

Now what is this Unique Blogger Award I hear you ask? Read on to find out!

What is the Unique Blogger Award?

Afbeeldingsresultaat voor the unique blogger award

I’ll tell it to you straight… I am not invited to some ceremony where I get 45 seconds to say thank you to the people I love and admire (45 seconds would be way too short anyway!) and I haven’t won an enormous amount of money (now that is a bit of a bummer of course…).

No, this Unique Blogger Award is actually a virtual award given by one blogger to another to show recognition and that is exactly why I find this Unique Blogger Award so important. It actually means that my blog is appreciated by a fellow blogger 🙂 So Ingrid, thank you for nominating me… I really and truly cherish this award!

Who nominated me for this Award?

Ingrid Levin from the blog IngridMadisonAve nominated me. Ingrid is a former model living in New York.

Now you do have to take a look at Ingrid’s blog as she’s set to empower, inspire and enlighten her followers to live their happiest life ever.  She gives so many tips on beauty, travel and how to have a healthier and happier life. As a former model she’ll certainly know the drill!

What are the rules?

  • Ingrid has asked me some questions I’ll have to answer… I’ll do so below!
  • Share the link of the blogger who nominated me.
  • Nominate 8-13 other bloggers for the same award.
  • Ask 3 questions to these bloggers.

The 3 questions Ingrid asked me:

What’s your favourite city, or country and where do you live now?


I have to say my favourite city definitely is Paris. I have visited the City of Lights many times and I just can’t get enough of  it! Recently I have visited Paris in winter. This was a first to me and I must say that I was enchanted by the Christmas decorations all over the city. Paris really lived up to it’s nickname ‘the city of lights’ as you could see in this post!

I live in Beveren, which is a town near Antwerp, Belgium… which is only a 3,5 hour drive to Paris 🙂

Recently I have started this new column on my blog ‘exploring my neighbourhood‘ in which you can read posts about must-visit places in Beveren and surrounding cities and villages.

What are some of your 2018 goals?


That’s an easy one as I have recently shared a post about the goals I set for 2018. You can read the full post here 🙂

In 2018 I intend to:

  • exercise more
  • eat and drink more wisely
  • start saving for a trip to Australia
  • read 12 books
  • invest in quality time with family and friends
  • keep posting good, fab and lovely stuff
  • keep watch over my stress levels

Since 2018 has just begun, I can’t tell you much about my progress to reach these goals. I will however do an update every two months to keep you informed (and to keep me on my toes actually!!).

What did you learn this year?


I have learned that saying ‘no’ to someone else, can really mean saying yes to yourself… I only have to learn to put this into practice a bit more 😀

Which bloggers do I nominate for the Unique Blogger Award?

Now if I nomated you, please don’t feel obligated to take part… It would just be fun to read your answers 🙂

And my three questions for the nominees are…

  • If you could drop everything right now… where would you be going and why?
  • If you could invite three people (alive or dead) over for diner, who would it be and why? (optional: what would you cook??)
  • Can you really be in both ‘team coffee’ and ‘team tea’ or is that not done?? Which team do you belong?? Or are you, as me, member of both teams?!

Have you ever been nominated for some blogger award? Let me know in the comments!

Love, Kathleen

    congratulations! Enjoy reading these posts as getting to know everyone a bit more. I am jealous you are 3.5 hours from Paris. Living in Canada I can’t even get out of the country in 3.5 hours! Although there are beautiful places to visit within that time frame. Great goals for 2018.

      Canada is such a beautiful place on its own… or so I’ve heard… never been there! In 3,5 hours I can travel to several countries 🙂 Thanks for your comment! Love, Kathleen
