At the beginning of February it was that time of the year again. It was time to blow out 24 candles on my birthday! I sort of have a love/hate relationship with this day ever since I passed my 21years. At 21 I felt on top of the world. After this I didn’t look that much forward anymore to my special day. I can’t explain why. This year I also didn’t feel like celebrating big with a party as usual, took it easy and just ate cake with the family. As I’m not the complete boring grandma yet, I still decided to do something fun. Me, my bestie, and a weekend trip to Antwerp was the recipe for this years celebration.

For me, this wasn’t the first time in Antwerp but it had been such a long time and I didn’t remember a thing about the city. The weekend was meant for our favourite activities: eating, relaxing, shopping and having drinks 😉 My bestie brought as a surprise a bottle of Moët bubbles. No birthday without champagne right?

We stayed at the Radisson Blu, which is really close to the Central Station, perfect for people who travel with train. The hotel has a spa, so guess were we spend our lazy Sunday morning?

I enjoyed my weekend a lot! Thanks B. ❤

Lunch upon arrival at Le Pain Quotidien. Yummy avocado toast.

Shopping time! All I bought was glitter socks, moon shaped earrings and.. macarons.

These body scrubs at & Other Stories smelled all so lovely.


Cheers to me!

Dinnertime. We went to Mercado, which is an indoor food market.Love love love this concept! B. and I shared some seafood as a starter. Later on, she took something from the Thai stand and I went for some tacos.

Never skip dessert! I tried a bubble waffle as I always saw these on my Instagramfeed and got curious about it.

I had an amazing time in Antwerp and had an awesome birthday celebration. Totally unlike me, but I sort of am curious now what next years celebration will be like. Maybe I’ll stick to my new tradition of celebrating it elsewhere.
