When I was about 30 weeks pregnant I was contacted by the sweetest PR lady from Kidscomunicacion to see if I would be interested in coming to Paris in September and visit the opening of the brand new Bellerose shop for kids in the Rue de Courcelles. Say what?!?! Interested?!?! DELIGHTED!! Yes please, of course, bien sûr, merci beaucoup!! I LOVE Paris and I adore Bellerose, so I had to go.  So when Delphine was about 3 weeks, I found myself packing a little bag for her and for me, and we took off to visit the beautiful city of light, and more particularly the Bellerose shop for kids.  When I arrived, I had the honor to have diner with the entire design team of Bellerose Kids.  Now I already knew Bellerose was for the cool peeps, and after meeting these talented and most friendly designers, I know that a lot of hard work goes on behind the scenes to deliver these gorgeous collections.  We had diner in the beautiful restaurant Le Perchoir and although I was a bit worried that Delphine would be a bit fussy in the evening, she slept the entire night in the baby carrier. We stayed in the Mama Shelter hotel, which was of course perfect.  The next day, after breakfast, we walked around in the city, we visited the Bellerose Women store, we had lunch and we went to the opening of the new Bellerose Kids shop.  Everything was super nice: the clothes (of course!), the decor, the design, the people and the yummie drinks and bites. It was so fun to meet the Bellerose people and of course a lot of other bloggers (Bea from Con Botas de Agua and Sophie from Hiloalohablog a.o.), stylists, journalists, designers etc. Now to choose outfits for my kids… Can I have it all please?!?! When in Paris, make sure to visit this beautiful shop!(Bellerose, Rue de Courcelles 132, 75017 Paris, Tel +33 140 54 86 17)

Wanneer ik ongeveer 30 weken zwanger was, werd ik gecontacteerd door een super lieve PR dame van Kidscomunicacion om te zien of ik misschien interesse had om een paar dagen naar Parijs te komen in september,  naar de opening van de nieuwe Bellerose shop voor kids in de Rue de Courcelles.  Ok, wablieft? Interesse?!?! Euhm… UITERAARD, natuurlijk, ja graag, bien sûr, merci beaucoup!! Ik hou enorm van Parijs en ik vind Bellerose geweldig, dus ik moest gaan! Wanneer Delphine dan ongeveer 3 weken was, vond ik mezelf een koffertje maken voor haar en voor mezelf en we trokken met z’n tweetjes naar Parijs, naar de Bellerose shop voor kids.  Wanneer ik gearriveerd was, had ik de eer om samen te gaan eten met het ganse design team van Bellerose Kids.  Nu wist ik al dat Bellerose enkel voor de allercoolsten is onder ons, en nu ik deze getalenteerde en vriendelijke designers gesproken heb, weet ik dat er heel veel werk gebeurt achter de schermen om zulke prachtige collecties neer te zetten.  We hadden onze diner in het mooie Le Perchoir restaurant en hoewel ik me op voorhand een beetje zorgen maakte dat Delphine een beetje lastig zou zijn s’ avonds, heeft ze ganse avond in de draagzak geslapen. We verbleven in Mama Shelter, wat natuurlijk perfect was.  De volgende dag na het ontbijt, hebben we wat rondgewandeld in de stad, we hebben de Bellerose Women bezocht, geluncht en daarna zijn we naar de opening van de Bellerose Kids shop gegaan. Alles was er geweldig: de kleren (uiteraard!), de setting, het interieur, de mensen en de lekkere hapjes en drankjes.  Het was geweldig om de Bellerose mensen te leren kennen en natuurlijk ook vele andere bloggers (o.a. Bea van Con Botas de Agua en Sophie van Hiloalohablog), stylisten, journalisten, ontwerpers enz.  Nu nog outfits uitkiezen voor m’n kids… Kan ik het gewoon allemaal nemen aub??!! Wanneer je in Parijs bent, moet je zeker deze mooie winkel bezoeken! (Bellerose, Rue de Courcelles 132, 75017 Paris, Tel +33 140 54 86 17)

Liesbet | Bedroom-makeover with La Cerise sur le gateau and IKEA

Our bedroom is very small. I really don’t mind, a bed is all there is needed anyways. I like to keep things simple and clean, so I love our new bed from IKEA. It’s the BRIMNES bedframe, and I prefer it without a headboard. The drawers are easy to put away items like bedding, blankets, etc. And what about this duvet cover and pillows from La Cerise sur le gâteau? I adore this French brand, it is so quirky and cool! They shake up home linen and bedroom decorations: Jouy and Liberty prints wake up next to polka dots and neon touches, I love it! The hanging crib for our smallest addition is from Rock that Label.

 

Onze slaapkamer is heel klein. Dat vind ik helemaal ok, meer dan een bed is er niet nodig, toch? Ik hou het graag simpel en netjes, en ons nieuwe BRIMNES bed van IKEA is ideaal. Ik vind het het mooist zonder hoofdbord. De lades zijn ook makkelijk om spullen en dekens in op te bergen. Het beddengoed is van het fijne Franse merk La Cerise sur le gâteau. Dit label kenmerkt zich door bloemenprintjes of stippen gecombineerd met fluo accenten en speciale opdrukken, echt heel tof! De hangwieg van ons beebje is van Rock that Label.

Katleen | date with little niece

Last week, my sis and I went for some tea to Leontine, our favorite local coffee house.  The weather was amazing and it was so nice to enjoy the sun!  Wherever my sis goes, Florence, her baby girl and my sweet little niece, goes too, of course.  That little doll is so cute, you can’t do anything else than smother her with kisses (see pics below, ha!).  Florence happily responds with some wet open mouth baby kisses, yum!  I was wearing my favorite dress from Legoe, my new sunnies from Daan Optiek and the best lace shoes from Sacha.  The dress is amazing, so comfortable I actually live in it since I have it.  Because I always carry lots of stuff around with me due to my 3 kiddos, the Josefina diaper bag is a dream.  The felt bag inside is divided into several little pockets so I can easily find everything I need.

Vorige week hadden mijn zus en ik afgesproken voor thee bij Leontine, ons favoriete lokale koffiehuisje.  Het weer was geweldig en het was zo leuk om eindelijk van de zon te kunnen genieten.  Waar mijn zus gaat, gaat natuurlijk ook Florence, haar dochtertje en mijn lief nichtje.  Dat kleine popje is zo schattig, je kan niet anders dan haar overladen met kussen (bewijs: zie foto’s hieronder, ha!). Florence geeft dan van die natte zoenen terug met open mondje, yum!  Ik droeg mijn favoriete kleed van Legoe, mijn nieuwe zonnebril van Daan Optiek en de beste lace schoenen van Sacha.  De jurk is geweldig en zo comfortabel dat ik bijna niks anders meer draag.  En omdat ik altijd zo veel spullen met me meedraag (danku 3 kids!), is de Josefina luiertas handig meegenomen.  De vilten tas aan de binnenkant is verdeeld in verschillende kleine zakjes zodat ik alles kan terugvinden wat ik nodig heb.
