Hello Creative Sunday lovers,

We celebrated the upcoming summer during our last edition of the year 2015-2016, in early June. We were at EsKape, a very nice canteen close to the Place du Luxembourg. As it was a sunny day, we installed the beauty workshop on the patio and took a sunbath while learning how to create a flower barrette. The D.I.Y. workshop was about customizing tableware and in the kitchen, we made a granola with a fruits coulis. This edition was all about flowers, fruits and colors!

We arrived on a Saturday morning and left on a Sunday afternoon and we felt like we had seen most of it (not to say everything). That’s ideal to get a change of atmosphere!

Now that you are convinced that Utrecht is your next destination, here are our addresses…

Hey hey DIY lovers,

It’s been a while since the last DIY post here. Marine and I needed a moment off to get inspiration and some time to work on other projects. But we are back now!
This year, we made the decision to make you discover more brands and products we love. So let start the year (better later than never, huh?) with an idea from the Villa Empain [a beautiful art deco house in Brussels] shop. Ok, I didn’t do it all by myself but I bought a kit so I still had to do something. The brand is German and if you are interested, I am sure you can find it online easily.

Curious to see how I did it? Discover the steps below…
