Vif Weekend/Knack Weekend Fashion Awards
For the ones of you who haven’t heard, the « Vif Weekend/Knack Weekend » is organizing the first Blog awards in Belgium.
The nominees were announced last week, and I really wanted to share with you my favorites, and give you advice for who to vote. I have to say I was really pleased to see a few of my favorite blogs that I had entered, being selected.
As you might guess, there is a French and a Flamish selections of blogs. For the Flamish blogs, I may not be able to help you with every section, but will give you my favorites!
*you can vote until the 29th of April and the results will be out May 8th*
I know the style of Absolutely Mrs. K may not speak to everyone since it’s so particular. In that case, I also really like Dogsanddresses. Elien is such a cute girl, as much as her style is. I really like how she mixes her pieces, the prints, etc… Plus, she’s really sweet.
FL – Life is a box of Make-up:
FR – Pop it, Rock it, Art it:
I knew the blog before, since I know the owner, who is actually one of my reader!
She sent me her blog a few weeks ago, so I’ve been on it a few times. It’s not the kind of blog I will visit every day, but definitly when I’m in need of inspiration.
Plus, I really love Art, even though it’s not something I’m confronted with everyday, so it’s always nice to read about it once in a while. I think she chose her artist, pieces of art and pictures really well. Congrats!
FL – I love Belgium:
I have to admit, the owners of this blog are two people that I like a lot! Plus they are the cutiest couple on the planet. Plus I love their PR Agency. Plus they made me discover such amazing places, designing wise, through their blog (and much more!)
I hope you’ll make great discoveries as well, and that maybe you’ll get the chance to meet them some day
FR – Mon Bo petit Monde:
Because she’s super nice, because she’s really talented and her photos are more than great, and because she has two really great models, which are her kids, Themis and Ulysse.
FL – Made by Mamasha:
I love her picture, she makes great DIY
Sadly I can’t tell you much more, since it’s the “personnal category” and it’s all written in flamish. I can understand it, but not enough to be able to judge
FR – L’imperfection désirable:
Just because she’s really funny and her stories look crazy. Even if there is a lot of text, I’m not tired of reading it
FL – the.ego.tripper:
Love the presentation of the blog, different from the other. Really enjoyed the pictures and the fact that it’s in english
FR – Aime by em:
Lovely photos, really great shots from everything around us. The little things that we don’t see in our every day life but that look amazing through the eyes of the photographer…
FL – CoffeeKlatch:
Really love the fact that we meet someone, enter his universe thanks to the great pictures of the owner of the blog.
I think the concept is much more interesting than simply posting pictures on the blog (as pretty as they can be)
FR – Loftkitchen:
You may know now I much I love food (from my Instagram pictures, or simply with the different recipies I’ve shared with you), and I can tell you my friend Flo is a master in that category. I can not even tell you how excited I am that she got selected since I had subscribe her blog in the first place. This is just the blog of a food lover, who loves sharing her love for food with friends (by cooking them the best meals EVER) or with her readers through her blog.
FL – Princess Misia:
I already knew her blog because I follow her on Twitter since a while. I really love the fact that the pictures are beautiful. To me, that makes a lot for a blog. And even more for food. The « down » point of her blog, to me (and that is very personnal) there is too much about sweet dishes and desert. They are probably the prettier dishes to take in pictures, I admit… but I never bake, or make deserts. I like to find in a food blog dishes that I can/want to make.
FR – K-Web:
I liked the template of the blog, the design. It looked really professional.
FL – Defilmblog:
This blog doesn’t look « pretty », but looks very precise about each movie they talk about.
As you can see, I chose two blogs talking about movies and cinema, because they were the themes that interested me the most, but of course that is very personnal.
FR – Brussel’s Kitchen:
One of my favorite blogs! I’ve talked about it on my page, shared it a few times because this is definitly a blog that is worth knowing/reading. The owners are two young girls (one use to be my bestfriend when we were teenagers), that walk around the city of Brussels (but not only), find amazing cute little places that you’ve never heard about (at least I didn’t), and when you read their articles and look at their photo’s, you’re just dying to go to the places they talk about. As I said, it’s not only Brussels because they also share good tips about other cities (only cool cities of course), like Berlin. As if it wasn’t enough, they also share great ideas of recipies, with videos that makes you want to jump into your screen. Ass kicking job girls, you SO deserve this award! (Plus they started the blog just a few weeks ago, and to me they’re already on TOP!)
I just want to add that if I could, I would have also voted for Bxlblog, just because Yelyam is such a great writer.
FL – Antwerpen Streetstyle:
A blog about Fashion? Especially STREETSTYLE? Well, I’m sorry for the other blogs, but there was no competition here!
FR – Carogribouillis:
Her drawings are pretty great, and I find her pretty funny.
FL - Very Emily:
You know how I love doing my nails, manucures etc… Well that blog is SO awesome if you love manucure! She does amazing nail art, and post pictures of her wearing like a thousands different nailpolish colors. The photos are pretty good too. I just discovered it thanks to the Awards, but I can already tell you, I might spend a few hours going through that blog…
This is it guys, I went through all the categories! It was long indeed, but very fun to make great discoveries, or to discover that blogs I love were selected. To choose all these different blogs, I took in consideration: the design of the blog itself, easy to read or not, pretty or not, the quality of the writing, the pictures, the content. The fact that I knew people behind some blogs didn’t really change my point of vue, but of course the ones who are my friends are my friends for good reasons I guess, and we have the same kind of expectations about blogs. The blogs that I chose were my clear favorites, but that doesn’t mean that other ones were not as good.
Besides all of that, I’m just going to add, the blogs that I would of like to see as well…
Because she has a really great sense of style, always colorful. She manages to look always really put together even if she has funky touches! And because she’s so sweet and funny – AND BECAUSE ME MAKE THE BEST DUO haha
Because her style is different from what we see everyday in the streets of brussels. She’s really inspired by minimalist style, the kind of style we see much in Norway or Sweden. When she writes on her blog, it’s always good and pretty funny (always a good point to be funny on a fashion blog)
- Monsieur de Vos:
He’s probably too lasy, so he doesn’t post that often, but when he does, it’s SO good! Not only his drawings, that are kick ass good, but his writing is so great and so funny. Definitly a must
Stylewise, I think she has one of the best blog in the french part of Belgium. She often manage to have great pieces, or great accessories. And gosh her hair! It always looks like she just spent hours in a hairsalon
She is the sweetest girl, and always looks so cute. Always really well put together, without never going overboard. I also like the fact that she often gives either beauty tips, but also good ideas for recipies etc…
