New Year’s EveĀ 

The celebration old – new is already more then a week ago, but HEY 2016 is full of opportunities… 

  
 The last days of 2015 we travelled with my parents to Holland, more specifically to Arnhem. I know this area very well, the designers from the amazing brand “the people of the labyrinths” live here. 

  
Their house is more than amazing, full of art and colourful antique. I know them for more than 20 years now, they form the base for my ambition becoming a great designer. I think my mum is their bigest fan! She only wears “POTL” (and Tutu Chic of course). 

  
We stayed at the “Groot Warnsborn” hotel. A beautiful and cosy hotel run by family “De Vries”.

  
The 31st we went for a long walk in the park. The hotel is really in the middle of a monumental estate of nature. Amazing to calm down before the storm of parties! 

  
Me wearing Tutu Chic coat Glitz, mum wearing scarf and coat “The People Of The Labyrinths”. 

  
Haha we received the key of the bride suite and could spend the night in this crazy gold room! Fragile approved!! 

  
The night continued and I was wearing a black and silver Tutu Chic dress. 

Cheers to 2016 sweeties!! Xoxo

Bye 2015!

Hi guys,
Hope you all had a great end of 2015 and an even better start of 2016!

New beginnings always come with a sort of closure. So with this blogpost I would like to give you all an overview of my personal year in 2015 and its ups and downs. 

JANUARY 2015

  

On this picture you would say everything is more than fine, the truth is I went to a very hard time that moment. Nov, December 2014 and January 2015, I had an accumulation of negativity in life. A very bad car accident (thank god I’m still alive), 6 months I drove a big white van (not glamorous at all), because my cute pink Mini Cooper was totall loss. A bit later I got robbed in one of my stores, … These are just a few examples of what happened. I can tell you, things were not going how they were supposed to be. Appearances are deceptive. 

FEBRUARY 2015

  

Me and my boyfriend finally found a place of our own. Even today we are still very happy in our cosy love house. 
MARCH 2015

  
Paris fashion week with my friend Jill, wearing Tutu Chic collection. 
  

Opening of a new bedding store (yes one of my other businesses) Here with my girls, wearing Tutu Chic Little Black Jackets. I’m wearing the gold bloom dress. 
APRIL 2015

  
In April my sweet white horse Ocean got an accident while training. She hurt her leg very bad. Seeing her in so much pain and fighting against this tendon injury made me very sad. Even today she is still in rehabilitation for this. Seeing her so positive made me realising: What defines us is how well we rise after falling. 

MAY 2015

  

May is one of my favourite months of the year. We can already see summer through nature. This picture was taken while shooting some new collection. 

  

Opening of one of my new bedding stores. I think this shop at Waasland Shopping centre Sint-Niklaas is one of my favourite shops ever. How lovely is the interior?
JUNE 2015

  

Popping up at good goods knokke, amazing location between hermes and Gucci. 
JULY 2015

  

New car, new opportunities, new start. July was the beginning of concept store Jackie Jane. Having this brand new Porsche, wrapped in a handmade pink Tutu Chic knit, made it all just so fun. People will stare but ok let’s make it worth that while šŸ˜‰

AUGUST 2015

  

Parties, friends, fun and a lot of love. 

  

SEPTEMBER 2015

  
The new winter collection was available online and I was more than proud. 

 With the new summer collection we went to Paris fashion week and rented our own Tutu Chic showroom! Amazing opportunity and start of something big!

  
Walking on the streets of Paris showing the world Tutu Chic’s latest collection with this cutie: Ankatrien of the blog Teacups and dresses. Love her!
OCTOBER 2015

  
Tutu Chic HQ… A new workspace for us! Yayyyy! This was professionally one of my main goals for 2015. 
NOVEMBER 2015

  

A lot of love in November. Me and my boyfriend did some short trips. We just adore to visit amusement parks, so we made a little game of it and visited Efteling, Europapark, Phantasialand and Disneyland in a really short period. Sometimes it’s just amazing to forget all the serious things in life and feel like a little kid again.

  

This girl… She is so sweet and pure… Just Yentl, is the name of her new blog. And I’m so thankful we met. Thank you for the amazing Spain trip sweetie! 

DECEMBER 2015

 
Love and Family (with capital), that’s where it’s all about. How I love to work hard but come home to these people. 
 
Thanks for following me, hope you enjoyed this blogpost! Cheers to 2016! 

Love you all!
