Mussels in Brussels

When you’ve been to one flea market you’ve been to them all. Piles of stuff everywhere and little hidden gems just waiting to be discovered. My husband and I were taking a walk about the city when we stumbled into this flea market by chance in the middle of the square. We decided to poke around and see if we could find anything that piqued our interest enough to lug around with us for the duration of our trip.

More so, it was cool just to hear Belgians haggle with each other on the value of old China sets and vintage publications of Tintin.

When it’s hot and humid out there’s only one thing to do in Brussels, and that’s to grab a beer! Le Chouffe for me, and Omer for moi mari. Seriously, I don’t think you can go wrong with any of the Trappist beers! They average about ‚ā¨3-4.50 at a bar and close to $10 back home. If you find yourself in Belgium one of these days, do yourself a favor and try some of the local brews. Of course, that’s why you went to Belgium in the first place, isn’t it? ūüėČ


For dinner we went to this little place called La Boussole and had ourselves some mussels and bouillabaisse all with a side of beer and pom frites, of course.


Full of seafood goodness and slightly buzzed, we slowly made our way home enjoying the scenery along the way.

On a side not, I noticed quite a few ladies overtly¬†checking out¬†my hair, which I was flattered by. As the days went on I noticed that most gals either had their hair up in a ponytail or down, so I thought I’d share with you the pull through braid I did. Maybe it’ll give you a little hair inspiration during these hot summer days.
