I love coffee houses! However, I often miss music in the background while I’m drinking my latte. Drinking coffee is just not the same without a soundtrack that makes you feel like you’re at a hipster coffee house in Portland, sipping from your flat white. A lot of coffee houses don’t play any music, or just bad music… So to help you out, I made a playlist that will go perfectly with your coffee. Just hand it to your coffee guy, sit back and relax.
This mix is filled with folk, indierock and alternative music. You can hear the cool sounds of Arcade Fire, the heavenly voice of Sufjan Stevens and the folky tunes of Gregory Alan Isakov. And for all you True Detective fans, I added the themesong by The Handsome Family. I could listen to that song over and over… I hope you enjoy this mix and feel free to share your favorite coffeehouse music!
Now I’m off to grab a coffee…Cheers!
This is what we’ve been up to last week….
Cosy wintery evenings. Last week I went to Leuven for a nice dinner with a friend. We went to one of my favorite restaurants, “De Wiering”. I studied in Leuven for 6 years, and when you live in a city you sometimes don’t see how beautiful it actually is. Just look at Leuven’s town hall, it’s a fairytale building right? After catching up with my friend I ended my night with a cup of tea in front of the fireplace!
Baby it’s cold outside! Last week was the moment where winter finally arrived in Belgium. I love going outside with the frosty crispy grass underneath my feet, a perfect way to clear your head.
Just do it! I have to admit it has taken me a while to be stronger than my excuses, but this week I decided it’s time to just do it! People always take a new start on the 1st of January, but why not start now, that way you already reached something amazing to start the new year with! So no more excuses for me, I braved the cold and went to the gym!
Last week I had my final lesson of a barista course I’ve been following in coffee bar Cuperus in Antwerp. Now I’m finally able to make you the perfect cappuccino, espresso or latte!! Although I’m really going to miss visiting Antwerp every week (shopping alert!)…
Almost every week, you can find me in Mechelen, my favorite city in the world (or maybe just in Belgium…). I explored new stores and indulged in the sweetest chocolate cake! This week, I finally took a look at the second hand book store, which was a really nice surprise!
On saturday night, we put our red lipstick on, got our hair done and partied like it’s 1955! Every month, Radio Modern throws one hell of a retro party, and this was my first time. But it won’t be my last. Let’s rock ‘n roll, baby!!
See you next time!!
