Why Les 4 Maisons is my favourite Harry Potter/interiour design store.

Photo of the day: 4.8.2020 

Today I would like to talk about Les 4 Maisons
A Wizarding World store in Liège, Belgium. Well, it's a Wizarding World and steampunk + dieselpunk design store, really, so very dangerous for my bank account! When it comes to decor, the store is absolutely on point, I would love to put tons of things inside my home, no joke.

Let’s talk about wands

1 

A couple of months ago, I decided to buy a wand. A Harry Potter wand. 
As you may know, there are many, many MANY wands available, and I spent far more time than I care to admit staring at wands on the internet, eventually settling on Parvati Patil’s one. I’m not a particular fan of Parvati’s, but I liked how her wand looked, and by that time, I was just kinda fed up staring at wands and went with that one. 
Of course, since then, I have accumulated several other wands, and a book about wands, so let’s talk about wands. 
(If anyone wonders, that small tote is by Geek Gear).
I will continue to update this post whenever I (or Bert) acquire a new wand, so if you're into wands, check back regularly!

Fun with friends and Van Gogh

Expo Van Gogh 

A few weeks ago (I know, I am forever chronically behind, but the expo is still on ‘till November 8th so this time it’s totally irrelevant!) I went to the Antwerp edition of Van Gogh, the Immersive Experience with Claire and Bert.

Disneyland Paris during the summer, a photo post

and then there was the Phantom 

As this is a massively throwback post by this time, I'm going to make this a mostly photos post :) Basically for my birthday, we left for France on July the 23rd to go to Disneyland Paris the next day (my actual birthday) :)

Comic Con Brussels in photos

It has dawned on me that I have completely forgotten to write a piece about when I went to Comic Con Brussels. Which was probably the last convention in Belgium that happened for the forseeable future. Bert and I went on Sunday (February 23). So yeah, here be convention pictures! :)

Adventures of Salem, Kiwi-chan and Joop Destroyer of Worlds #5: random cat photos

Photo of the day: 20.2.2020

After yesterday's photo post featuring pretty much only Salem kitten (who is the master of making faces at the camera) here's another cat post!
Because the internet is made for cats and we can all do with some cat photos right about now.

The Adventures of Salem, Kiwi-chan and Joop Destroyer of Worlds #4: Salem and the faces he makes at the camera

Salem

Salem isn't afraid of a camera, not in the slightest.
He's not afraid of me either, he just hates pettings 99% of the time.
He will, however, make ALL THE FACES, at the camera.
99% of the time.
Because these days we can all do with a bit of a laugh, here's a compilation of Salem making stupid faces at the camera :).

Lockdown lookbook

April 2

Belgium has started requesting social distancing rules end of February, and has been in lockdown since March 21st. 
This post is basically my outfits from that time 'till well, today (April 20). 
Because why not make a lookbook.

The adventures of Salem, Kiwi-chan and Joop Destroyer of Worlds #3: of boxes and flamingos

boxed Joop

A little while ago Bert bought me a skirt on the Top Vintage website. 
Said skirt came in a box, and in that box was pretty purple paper and a flamingo keychain. Essentially a puff of fake fur with a fake leather head and dangly legs. I'm not a flamingo kind of person, but both one of my neighbours and one of my friends is, so whilst I was debating who to give this to, to make sure it would go to someone that would fully appreciate it, Kiwi came up to me, begging for the flamingo. Obviously, this left me with no choice but to take the hardware off (that I did save!) and give it to her. 
This was, of course, not taking Salem and Joop into account. 
And madness followed.

The Adventures of Salem, Kiwi-chan and Joop Destroyer of Worlds #2 - Little Mikey

Photo of the day: 31.1.2020

After more than a month since ship out date (because yes, it got stuck in customs and yes, it was a lot of misery to get it out and delivered. Luckily, I was not charged, huzzah!), our kind regular postie rang my doorbell to hand me a package from Japan full of Monsters Inc goodies.

Frozen Legends? Star Wars in Arendelle?

Frozen 2: an Enchanted Voyage

When I discovered that it would be the last year Legends of the Force was running at Disneyland Paris (no more Skywalker Saga movies to come out so no more Star Wars event?) I wanted to go an extra day to enjoy the event, at least just a little. 
It runs paralel to Frozen Celebration, as as Bert is a huge frozen fan, I knew full well I wouldn't be having a full day of Star Wars, alas! 
But anyway, I asked him if we could go down a Saturday to see Legends and Frozen stuff, and he was totally fine with that.
