i’m a sucker for good branding and packaging. let’s be honest here, how many of you have bought stuff they didn’t need (or even liked!) just because of the pretty box it came in? the grocery store is an especially dangerous place… i have the biggest tea collection, and i don’t even like tea that much. so whe your content and packaging are on the same level, you’ve pretty much made a fan for life out of me.

that’s what 0°SOUTH managed to do with their pretty men’s underwear, which i’ve secretly been hogging from my husband and using as pyjamas- who knew boxershorts could be so comfortable? they offer a subscription service, too – so for christmas, why not get your man a monthly delivery of fresh undies and socks? he’s happy with the contents, you’ll get a kick out of the nice packaging. it’s a win-win.

and i know there’s nothing surprising or innovative about kraft packaging for granola, but it still gets me every time. while i was at KRACHTVOER recently, i discovered belgian brand FLOOM, which sells home-roasted muesli and granola. they also organize regular brunches, which i’m dying to attend. more information can be found over on their FACEBOOK PAGE.

and just because it’s one of the prettiest books i’ve seen all year and i had the honor of signing my own HOW BLOGS WORK at the antwerp book fair next to its lovely authors, i wanted to give a little shout-out to THURSDAY DINNERS. if you love kinfolk, if you love stories, if you love photography, if you love food… or all of the above, you need this book in your life. it’s gorgeous and inspiring, just like louise and hannes. order the book via HERE, and you might even win a nice set of SERAX tableware (louise is an ambassador for the brand, too!)
