About Me

Antwerp, Belgium
Welcome to the new, and improved version of Heaven in Belgium. I am Jientje. "Jientje", like the boys name Gene, followed by "chu"? "Gene-chu", that's how you pronounce my name. Yes!!!!That's it!! So now you know huh? I am an addicted blogger. I was born and raised and am still living in Belgium. Yeah, the "this-is- Tuesday-so-this-must-be-Brussels" kind of Belgium .. There, you see? Maybe you couldn't find it on the map, but at least I'm trying to change that a little by sharing lots of pictures. I really love to cook and create new things, like this blog for instance. I am a mother,a grandmothe and a wife too! They say I'm a traveler, and a photographer. Well that's just what they say, I love to make pictures, but I am far from professional ... If my English is not perfect, that would be because it's my second language. I do hope you'll forgive me any possible misspellings or strange vocabulary ... Now, as a result of all of the above, I get way too little sleep and my days are always much too short!

Friday's Fave Five, The New Look

Another week has passed and it's time to join Susanne's Friday's Fave Five and share some of its highlights.

1. My new look. I wanted a new hair style, so I went to a different salon and not only got a haircut but also had my hair colored. My new hairdresser did a great job, I just love it !

2. I got together with my friend Annie to choose some new recipes for next week's cooking session.

3. On Sunday I visited my parents and we made a little trip to the coast. The nice weather had brought loads of people about and it was hard to find a space to have coffee, but we did!

4. Snuggle up on the couch with my favorite magazine. A little bit of "me" time that I love!

5. A sandwich I made with Parma ham, sundried tomatoes, mozzarella cheese and pomegranate seeds. It was delicious!

Love your haircut! And that sandwich looks yummy. All of your photos are so beautiful!

You don't know how tempted I am to get that type of haircut!! It looks so pretty, and so easy to care for. Love the colour too - a nice warm brown, perhaps hovering on the border of red. Lovely.

Sounds like you had a fun week - the coast and your parents, a get together with a friend, cosy couch time and great food!

Pat said...

Your haircut is adorable and I love the color! Your sandwich looks delish!

I love your new haircut! Short hair is just so easy to take care of, I have mine a little shorter now and I love it that way.
