Let me introduce myself: my name is Anaïs (30), Lou’s mom (21 months old) and I work at the sales department of fashion company Hop Agenturen. I have been living in beautiful Brabant for five years now, with Han. But as a true Antwerp girl, my heart still skips a beat for this beautiful city along the Schelde. That’s why you can find me there almost every week, cause it feels like coming home every time!
A while back, in Schuttershofstraat in Antwerp Ladurée opened. Now what was always my moment of ecstasy when we went to Paris, is now located in Antwerp yay!
Ladurée is thé macaroon specialist and that since 1862… Macarons are little airy cookies stuck to together with a soft filling. And at Laduree you’ll find the best ones!
Not only the interior but also the smell, colors of the macarons and the packaging you just want to go home with a beautiful box every time. My absolute favorites : Vanilla – Pistachio – Chocolat – Framboise .
And while you’re walking around in the Schuttershofstraat with such a box of Ladurée, then pop into Zadig & Voltaire. In the Netherlands you can’t find the French brand almost anywhere. A same, ’cause it always looks so good. The idea of Zadig & Voltaire was to create a new form of luxury for women, men and kids. They also have super cute accessories, each collection again. I must admit that there is quite a price tag adheres to, but with Christmas you’re allowed to pamper yourself right? Definitely worth a moment to enter.
Let the season be Merry and 2014 awesome!
