here’s a trip-tip for the quick : today and tomorrow you can still admire the flower carpet at the Grote Markt in Antwerp. It was designed by Anne-Mie Van Kerckhoven. On Saturday 13th June, flowers and plants will be handed out to the visitors.
It is one of many events organized to celebrate the 450th anniversary of the town hall. I enclose the link for more details (link). Below you see a few images.
“Whoever is happy, will make others happy too” – Anne Frank
Today’s quote is from Anne Frank, a joyous teenager who had to live in miserable circumstances. I’m sure that due to her vivid character, she made life at “Het Achterhuis” (link), the hiding place in Amsterdam she lived in during the second world war, a bit more liveable for the other 7 inhabitants.
Anne Frank would’ve turned 86 today if it weren’t for Bergen-Belsen in 1945. Her diary was one of my favorite novels when I was a teenager. I read it several times and her strong character continued to amaze me. I recently bought the book for my children as I want them to read this piece of history that may never be forgotten !
A couple of weeks ago I went on a daytrip to the City of Lights… aka Paris !
Paris really is my favorite city. It oozes elegance and charm and I really like to stroll around and just soak up the atmosphere.
Now this last time, I went with my 2 daughters Charlotte (18) and Elizabeth (12). So it really was a girl’s day out ! The sun was shining so we took advantage of this beautiful weather and walked for miles and miles. We saw heaps of beautiful spots and places, but this time I will tell you about 2 things that really stood out for me that day and aren’t the typical tourist spots : afternoon tea at Hotel Daniel and a visit to Parc Monceau. Read more about our trip to beautiful Paris!
Yesterday I got to make some pictures for my first outfit-post that will be featured next Saturday… here is a sneak peek…
Bye for now !

“Paris is always a good idea” – Audrey Hepburn T
his is unmistakenly one of my favorite quotes. Probably for two reasons : one, it is a quote from Audrey Hepburn and wasn’t she one of the most iconic, stylish women on earth ? And two because it is a quote about Paris, definitely my favorite city. Do keep an eye on this blog as very soon I will give you some Paris tips, because frankly… isn’t Paris always a good idea ?!
“Today is your day your mountain is waiting so, get on your way” – Dr. Seuss
Here, on ‘The good, the fab and the lovely’, I will post quotes regularly and to start with, I think this quote from Theodor Seuss Geisel, otherwise known as Dr. Seuss, is the perfect one : “today is your day your mountain is waiting so, get on your way”… What is your mountain and what will you do to get on ? Read more about this quote!
This is my first post… well, not a proper post I must confess… more like a countdown until my first real “the good, the fab and the lovely” post… just a bit more patience !
