Breakfast at Leon°16

March 9, 2017

Good morning! Do you still remember the pictures and little movies I made last year of the wonderful Bed & Breakfast LEON°16 in Brussels (check it out here)? Well, here is the sequel! If you were not yet convinced by the bright interior and pastel green facade, there is one more reason why you should definitely book a night over here, the absolutely fabulous breakfast! For this stop motion video, our lovely models Janice and Daan were present again. They enjoyed the most delicious dishes, all homemade with love by owner Annelies. Bon Appetit!

Fuji Instax Mini 70

Some time ago my friend Merel, from Told You So, sent me a message from Fuji Instax that I would definitely like! And so it was… Fuji Belgium was looking for an Instax Ambassador 2017! To compete for the title, every participant had to present a creative project using an Instax Mini 70. Hereby I present my project to organize your shoes in an original en stylish way.

When organizing your wardrobe and dressing room, we all have the same challenge. How to realize a clean and minimal look when all your shoe boxes have different shapes and colors? In order to create harmony, I started to collect a lot of uniform white boxes to keep my shoes in. Afterwards I made these cool instax pictures to label the boxes. To create a white background I used a large sheet of white paper. If you don’t have that at home, you can use the bathtub as well as a white infinite background!
