Magnolia in Antwerp is just like AF VandeVorst with their Guerilla Aktion Stores going into a pop up business. Not only Antwerp, but also Gent, Brussels and Hasselt can expect a temporarily Magnolia store. Magnolia is all about beauty. They sell special brands which aren’t sold everywhere. Like Laura Mercier and Malin + Goetz.

Check out their site for dates:

Merci, the fantastic concept store in the Marais of Paris, often let creative brands run a part of their store. Now the turn is to Aesop, the minimalistic beauty brand from Down Under. I had a jawdroppin’ experience while looking at this pictures so I had to publish them on my site. Love it! You?

In every Bibou the ceiling is covered with paper lamps. This saturday the new Bibou opened her doors in Rotterdam. And yes, the ceiling is indeed made of several lamps. Love it! But this Bibou is much bigger than the one in Den Haag. You can ask for a feet treatment, a facial, massage or even a bye bye jetlag treatment. And even men are welcome! Prices? Massage from 40 euro, facial from 35 euro. And they sell natural beauty products as well (for reasonable prices).

According to Wallpaper Magazine the Dr Alkaitis Skin Food Facial is the best facial in the world. And I got one this friday. I must say I’m a beginner at spa treatments. Massages and hairdresser: yes, but facials and skin care: no. So it was all new to me. I loved getting to know a lot about my skin and have it taken care of. I especially loved the part where Olga brings on a combination of goat yoghurt and honey as a mask. Because Dr Alkaitis says: ‘if you can’t eat it, why would you put it on your skin’. So that’s where the natural ingredients come in. I will be back for more treatments, that’s for sure.

This treatment is 105 euro, but you can book a small treatment for 45 euro. Check out:

They give perfect massages and facials – and you can make your own skin products in here – but I was intrigued by the ceiling. How simple yet creative? Just buy a couple of IKEA lamps, cut them in halfs and stick them to the ceiling. The effect is amazing. Bibou is soon opening their third spa in Rotterdam. The other ones are located in Den Haag en Leiden.
