Let the Games Begin

I finally got my hands on a Hunger Games edition!

I’ve been looking for these series for over a year, but they could not be found anywhere in Belgium. Thank god for the people who decided to make a movie out of it, otherwise I might have never found the book at all.
I finished this book in two days. It where busy days filled with classes and social ‘events’ but I just had to read every spare moment I had!

I can’t wait to see the movie but most of all I can’t wait to read the rest of the series. Locating them will be another problem I guess ;).

Now I’m off to study for a while,work on a paper and prepare dinner.
I’m taking another yoga class tonight as yesterday’s noon class was really invigorating and I’ve finally come to the point that I can walk down the stairs and not feel every muscle in my body aching the days after that type of yoga class. I am keeping it low key with an easy flow class though, one ashtanga class a week is plenty for now.

Love, M.

Hotspots for Cold Days

It’s getting colder and colder in Belgium, the wind is super icy and we even had our first snow yesterday evening.

This makes me sad and happy at the same time, I always have mixed feeling when it comes to snow: I adore it cause it’s so pretty and fluffy and I love to play in it ( six-year-old mentality, remember?) but I’m also not really ice proof and since I fell on my back and really hurt my tail bone last winter (we had snow and ice here for months and months without end) I’m even more scared.

Anyway, time for another episode of hotspot December: here are some more hotspots you just HAVE TO visit when you ever visit Leuven.


A Coffee and Bagel bar, this an sich is explanation enough for why you should go there 😉

They serve delicious coffee here, yummy hot cocoa with a thick cocoa cream in it and you always get a little cake and a piece of chocolate with your drinks.
It’s the only bagel bar I know around here (every girl likes  a good bagel now and then!) they also sell lovely cupcakes, brownies and croissants.

The Sushi Lounge

If you’re looking for a quick yet delicious lunch or dinner, this is the place to go.
You can put together your own menu and they even offer vegetarian friendly options with lots of veggies and tofu. They also have a sushi bar, but I haven’t tried the sushi there so I can’t recommend it (yet).

Another recommendation for cold days is watching a movie: you should really watch ‘The Edge of Love’, I watched it yesterday while drinking hot cocoa underneath a blanket and it was very impressive.
