New life. New love

A quick post that I really wanted to share with you.
Last week these 8 little beauties were born. They are the little pups of our male brown labrador Bazil, who is my biggest love on earth. They are so cute and I can't wait to hold them in my arms!

Nothing but love for these 8 sweeties...

Back on Track | Milano

So here we are again! I know I've been away for some time - two months to be exact - but I needed this little break for myself. I have been struggling for quite some time now with the question if I should continue blogging. Since I also have a full time job and a full time household to take care of, I have to admit that finding time for my blog was becoming more like an obligation than a hobby... And that is not really what I had in mind when starting my blog.

So with the beginning of the summer, I said to myself to take a little break and enjoy the sun, my friends and the holidays. And that's exactly what I did: here is a first recap of my city trip to Milan together with my sweet girl Consu. 

We drove all the way to Italy and made a first stop in Como were we also stayed the first night. Our lovely hotel - Avenue Hotel at Piazzolo Terragni - gave us the opportunity to discover the beautiful city on a joyful ride with the bike. Although Italian people don't really understand the usefulness of a bicycle bell - they just keep walking without even looking behind - it really was the perfect way to discover this amazing city at the Como Lake. I immediately fell in love with it: I'm definitely going back there!

 Our last day in Milan we spend sunbathing - duh!, we're in Italy! - at a public pool / beach. It was such an amazing weekend and I had the time of my life! Thank you, miss Consuela, for the best birthday present this year.

Soon I'll be telling you more about my other amazing vacation, but that's for another blog post.
See you!

Event | GAB Staff Party

Here is a little recap from our one and only GAB Staff Party.
GAB - or Group Alain Broekaert - is the company I'm working for and is the official distributor in the Belux of big brands like Tommy Hilfiger, Scotch & Soda, Pepe Jeans and many more. GAB has more than 70 stores and almost 500 employees. 

A couple of weeks ago we had our annual staff party, quite popular among the employees and topic of conversation for a while now. My sweet colleagues organized the whole evening and I have to admit, they did it pretty well (- my compliments ladies!). Dress code for the evening was 'Cocktail with a touch of fluo', so I had my nails done in neon pink and I painted the stars on my pumps in the same neon color. It looked pretty good!

First there was a recap from last year poured into a blissful movie and afterwards there was this surprise act from Cookies & Cream. This popular Belgian cover band really had the whole crowd in hand during their act. I haven't often experienced a party with such an atmosphere! After a lot of dancing, singing and posing for pictures; it was time to go home. Luckily they had hired a bus for all the people coming from Halle, so we were safely delivered at home.

I had so much fun, I can't wait until next year!

Event | Surf Shack by Tommy Hilfiger

A couple of weeks ago we had the launch of the Surf Shack collection by Tommy Hilfiger in our store in Antwerp. We organized a huge press event with VW vans, surfboards and cocktails.
We also invited the sun, but because of her busy planning she couldn't make it... :(

The collection is inspired by the surf lifestyle including easy silhouettes, bold patterns and pops of neon. When you see the collection, you immediately think of summer times at the beach: swimming, tanning and sipping of a refreshing cocktail. And that was exactly what we wanted to make the people feel at the event. I hope we succeeded... I definitely had a good time!
