Going for a ride

tulipbikes

Sport has always been part of my life and really helped me in many ways. But, lately I’ve been excessively lazy and I can feel I’m loosing balance a little bit I have to say. So as a good resolution for Spring, I thought I would start moving again, register to a yoga or pilates class (do you know any cool classes in Brussels btw?), go for walks more often and, why not, buy a new bike.

I came across TulipBikes some time ago and immediately loved the design and concept: Choose one of the models, then design your bike, from colors to accessories. Your bike is made on order in the Netherlands and delivered to you 2 weeks later. And, price looks alright. Take a look at their website to see by yourself and let me know if you end up ordering one, I’m curious ; ).

3 things to love for Spring

Simple things magazine

Can you feel it? This soft breeze announcing Spring, its flowers and sunny days? Can’t help but smile thinking of the days ahead.

Today is all about taking a fresh new start after the cold Winter days, little by little. First, I’m really excited to introduce you to a new magazine I discovered a couple of weeks ago. Simple Things is a French publication that celebrates the small pleasures in life, from gardening and cooking to travel and lifestyle. I now have several editions and it’s always a pure moment of relaxation to flick through the pages. And, the magazine refers to some of the online shops ELT already made you discover through posts or gift guides like the ones dedicated to Neëst, Bodie and Fou or La Maison d’Anna G (Woot woot!). Another plus: it’s ad free.

Second favorite of the past few weeks, La Minute Papillon is pretty nifty resource (in French) for eating healthy (my new ambition). Recipes, tips and information are all presented in a neat and engaging way.

Finally, I just fell in love with these little gold dotted mugs from the French boutique HOME scandinave. An idea to freshen up your interior.

Have a lovely week! xoxo.

Today I read this article about Etsy’s amazing headquarters in Brooklyn and felt this had to be my next career move. I mean what else to hope for in life really? Yes, Etsy, this is an official submission to you: Would you like to hire a smart, funny and decidedly curious woman? Pleeease say you do.

In the meantime dear readers (and in order to let the Etsy team think about my proposal a little bit), I’m leaving you with some of my latest finds for the home on the platform.  Enjoy and have a fantastic evening! xoxo.

Brussels Brunch – La Gazzetta

La Gazzetta Bruxelles

As you might have seen on Instagram, I tested a new brunch spot last Sunday: La Gazzetta. Indeed, not only this beautiful deli serves great food and wine during the week (one of my favorite place for an apero in the Louise area) but it also offers a pretty nifty brunch on Sundays.

For 16 euros you’ll get a warm beverage, orange juice, a fruit salad, yoghurt & muesli, viennoiseries or toasted bread and eggs & bacon or a (not so) mini burger. If you’re not in a breakfast/brunch mood, you can just try out one of their pasta dishes, they usually are really good. Last but not least advice: If you’re still hungry after that (or even if you’re not), order the “chocolate salami” to wrap up this feast, trust me!

So lovelies, what are you up to this weekend? Any brunch spot you fancy testing?
