Welcome to my blog, or as I like to call it: my online playground. I’m addicted to lovely things and strongly believe that there’s always more than meets the eye. So put on your magic goggles and take this trip with me.

Un coup de KOKO

'Please, can I live here?', was my first reaction when entering KOKO Coffee & Design, somewhere in the middle of the Red District in Amsterdam. For a coffee/fashion junkie like me this place is heaven with a capital H. The interior is just phenomenal, with magazines lying around, beautiful vintage chairs, and also some very practical build-it-yourself tables from a Dutch company called Fraaiheid. Before sitting down and ordering my flat white, I had already tried on this fabulous ochre blouse from the Dutch designer Femke Agema. Her signature style? Colorful and playful aesthetics. I'll tell you a bit more about her clothes in one of my next posts.

A little note about the coffee now: it was divine (and believe me, I've had my fair share of caffeine before). The lovely Caroline - one of the two enthusiastic KOKO owners - told me the daily fresh roasted coffee beans are made by Caffènation Antwerp. Cool uh, the fact that we Belgians are about everywhere? Oh by the way: can I suggest a slice of delicious banana cake to go with it?
