Last weekend, the 6th of December, was Sinterklaas here in Belgium, which is a non-official but very traditional holiday, where kids receive presents from a good old man who rides a beautiful white horse over roofs to drop presents in the chimney.

Heb je het ook gehoord?

Beyonce en Jay-Z gaan nu, de laatste weken voor Kerst, een veganistisch dieet volgen. Ze hopen op die manier ‘gezonder’ en fitter de feestdagen te kunnen beleven. Misschien een vreemd idee, maar op zich helemaal geen slecht plan. Vaak gaan we iets te veel reactief een oplossing zoeken voor een […]
