Stellasport

Yes, I’m one of those women who draws motivation out of a fashionable sports outfit. I plead guilty. So when the new Adidas Stellasport collection popped-up in my inbox, I had my sights set on some new gear. I must admit that the allover animal print was bold, even for me, but from the second… More

Pigeon perfect!

I’ve got this thing with animals. No shit Sherlock! And I’ve got this thing with my new Levi’s Lot 700 High Rise Skinny. I fill it up nicely and it’s just that damn comfortable. It’s my new daily staple. Grab, slide, button, add a simple T or a white shirt, go for sneakers or heels,… More

Rose garden

Last week I got the chance to meet up with Dandan, the Chinese girl discovering our beautiful Province of Antwerp. Sometimes all you need is a story, this one’s about “the rose”, to learn a thing or two about universal humanity. We met up at the rose garden of Vrijbroekpark in Mechelen, the perfect setting… More

Traveling close to home

Photo series: Ibiza

When traveling we always go loco on the photo front. These pictures didn’t make the cut into our Rural Ibiza Guide, but we think they deserve a post of their own on Yayzine. Welcome to Ibiza through the eyes of Michiel.

Swedish melancholy at its driest

Sometimes you just feel connected to a brand. I had been seeing Stutterheim raincoats all over the place. They intrigued me and I decided to take a closer look at the product and the brand story that comes with it. I stumbled upon their poetic tagline, “Swedish melancholy at its driest”, and immediately knew what… More

Let’s go outside!

A few years ago we moved from a house with a big garden in the countryside around Ghent to an apartment in the outskirts of Antwerp. A whole adjustment for us outdoorsy types. But we fell head over heels for our prewar place with cute little terrace overlooking the communal garden of our building. You… More
