You’ve seen my recent buys in this post already and well this is the ‘sweater jacket’ - really don’t know how to call it – in the last picture. I told you I bought it because of the cool details most of us know as the alphabetdun dun duuun! It was a sunny day, the day these pics were taken. I went to Brussels with Jilkewho made these pics, thank you honey boo boo – to look for some vintage goodies over at Episode. I bought the cute mouse grey bow tie and Jilke fell in love with some black 501 cut off shorts and a good old cardigan. Afterwards, we felt like we were in Paris after ordering cheese and salami, which we had to cut ourselves. What looked weird first, was actually something cosy and fun. The times with Jilke are definitely good times!

This place is definitely a hotspot! So many people have written about it already and I understand why: Mamma Roma is the place to be when you found yourself around Flagey, Kastelein, Jourdan or Boondael exhausted after some walking and shopping… or if you’re too tired too cook yourself and craving for some good pizza! You can buy the pizza per weight and that way the whole family can enjoy! Mamma Roma does it differently: no slices to be found in this place, only “tiles” or as the Italians call it taglio! What else? They’re fresh! The pizza you see in front of you is the only pizza you can choose from. Obviously, the chef is preparing some more in the background and so they switch the tasty pizzas from time to time. I took the simple Margherita and Salame Piccante, as you can see in the last picture. Delicious is the proper word to describe it!

Mamma Roma offers two kinds of menu’s and you can also drink some soup or enjoy some antipasti… It’s your choice! I honestly think that Mamma Roma would be very succesful and loved in the city of Antwerp too!

The 3 winners of the #FAA2012 giveaway…

h&m, fashion against aids, shana massy

I want you guys to know that I read every comment one by one without looking at the names and when I read Shana’s comment I was convinced she deserved a price with this giveaway! She chose Peru as her ultimate travel destination because she would want to help the people and especially the kids there. Obviously, Fashion Against Aids is all about helping people in one way or another: joining the battle against aids or providing fashion addicts with some pretty pieces! So that’s why you, Shana, will receive a pair of awesome sunnies and an iPhone case! Congrats ^^

fashion against aids, noressa souris, h&m

Ah the Philippines… Noressa hit a sensitive spot there! My boyfriend is half Filipino and I’ve been there once (the picture’s mine ^^) and I can assure you: this is where you want to be, as in right now! Beautiful landscapes, amazing blue waters, super friendly people and let’s not forget the colorful underwater world! I’m definitely going back there in a few years, with my diving license in the pocket! Then there’s Japan, the poor country that got hit by tsunami and is still struggling with the nuclear disaster. It doesn’t take away the magic of the city of Tokyo though… But I think there’s more to Japan then their capital. So I hope that both Noressa and I get there one day! Noressa gets a pair of feather earrings and an iPhone (or any smartphone will do) case!

fashion against aids, marijke peeters, h&m

Out of all the tropical and hot destinations, this one definitely stood out! Marijke chose the Eastern bloc countries as her ultimate travel destination and she wouldn’t go alone: she’d take a Volkswagen T1 together with some friends and drive all the way up to Eastern Europe to enjoy the nature – yes, it exists! – and the amazing history those countries have. Marijke’s entry earned her a beautiful bracelet and a black feather mask!

Oh and ladies: check you email!
