Hello Creative Sunday lovers,

After the Summer break, we came back with an Indian Summer edition at Yummy, a nice space close to the Ixelles cemetery (sounds like a weird reference but everyone living in Brussels knows this area). At the entrance, the place is full of small armchairs and little tables; the rest is all made of wood and cushions. The perfect place to get comfy and drink tea with friends!
That day, we closed the doors to gather with D.I.Y., cooking and beauty lovers. We did a headband with Evelyne, we made homemade beauty products with Annabel and we prepared energy balls with Tamara. Let’s dig into this edition…

*Cooking workshop with Only Live Once*

As this edition took place in early September, our guest Tamara from the blog Only Live Once got the idea to share her energy balls recipes, the perfect energy shot to put in your bag just in case you are down in this “back to school” times. She offered two different kinds of energy bites: the ones made of apricots and cashew nuts (click here for the recipe) and those made of dates, peanut butter and chia seeds (click here for the recipe). For more pictures of the cooking workshop, visit Fouettmagic.

Funny fact: Our official photographer of the day, Paul-François Gay, is Tamara’s husband. What a couple!

*Beauty workshop with Handmade*

Our guest Annabel discovered the natural way to take care of her skin through American blogs. She tried once and then got used to make her own products. After some time, she decided to create a brand of homemade products that she naturally called Handmade.
Annabel explained to us how to create skin care products with fruits and vegetables. The table was full of avocados, bananas, strawberries, etc. At first, we thought we had two cooking workshops instead of one. But then we listened to Annabel and we realised that it was a nice and natural way to have a soft skin.

*D.I.Y. workshop with MespetitsO*

Our D.I.Y. guest of the day was Evelyne, from the blog MespetitsO. As Evelyne loves doing things by herself, she got more and more talented. Sometime, she creates stuff with her daughter who got the virus too. That day, she showed us how to create a headband with fabric and ropes.

*CheeseBOX*

The photo booth was installed close to the cooking workshop. As usual, we took a lot of pictures but we were not the only ones… It was a real success. You can see all the pictures here.

*Goodies Bags*

Our goodies bag was in a “take care of yourself” mood with a candle, beauty products made of honey, a refreshing drink, a notebook, a postcard with a nice quote, organic beauty products and a magazine.
