This year was the 1st time I visited the Woonbeurs (living fair) and I was fortunate to do so as press. I have to admit, it felt kinda cool having a press badge! :) It certainly made photographing at the fair a lot easier and less stressful. The Woonbeurs is an annual week long fair all about living and interior design, where companies & magazines show all the latest trends.
I attended the Bloggers Meet Up hosted by Sanoma Media on Tuesday where I met a bunch of incredibly talented fellow bloggers. I spent the rest of the day with Ilaria from Ida Interior LifeStyle. It’s always nice to meet & talk to the person behind the blog and I also discovered new blogs which I immediately added to my “favorites list”. I came to the conclusion that maybe I focus too much on international bloggers, while we have so many great bloggers in our own tiny little country as well.
I loved with how much enthusiasm & passion editor in chief - of three different magazines! - Aty Luitze told her story and how she instantly created a positive, bubbly vibe in the bloggers room. It really gave me a much needed spur of energy. And to think that I almost didn’t go because I was too tired after spending the previous weekend in Madrid! I would have regretted missing all of this.
Enough with the talking, let’s move on to the photos!

That’s all for today! Tomorrow I will post more photos from the Woonbeurs. ∗
