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.

To be hip or not to be hip?

For the latest issue of Kwintessens I wrote an article about the hipster subculture. A cool, progressive group of young people, yet nobody really wants to identify themselves with this movement. Being called a 'hipster' is for many a cheap insult, a name for shallow and insincere trend-followers. But is it really that bad? Don't hipsters have one authentic bone in their body? And also: are hipsters still hip in 2015?

To get my questions answered, I had a little chat with Ellen Anthoni from Trendwolves and with Toon from Broer Bretel, this amazing coffee place at 't Eilandje in Antwerp. You can read all about it in the new Kwintessens :-).
