Best Hot Chocolate in Bruges, Belgium

Old Chocolate House Brugges

How much do you love hot chocolate?

I'm not usually crazy about it, myself. When I think of it, I usually picture packets of powder with stale marshmallows swirled into some hot water... unappetizing to say the least.

However, I recently came across a place while traveling that was a whole other experience. I'm talking about The Old Chocolate House in Bruges, Belgium! It's a must if you're planning on passing through this quaint little town. So much so that I had to make sure it had its own blog post!

What's in My Suitcase- Travel Must-Haves!


Travel is a pretty much universally loved activity. Seriously, have you ever heard someone say they don't like to travel? It's like saying you don't like pizza or birthday cake. The feeling of hitting that road or stepping onto that plane to a destination unknown feels like freedom. Once you've been bitten by the travel bug, it's kind of hard to get un-bit 😊

The only thing is, traveling seems to involve more and more prep work the older you get. In college, for example, I used to literally haul my entire life around in a minivan- which consisted of about nine boxes of stuff. If I was going on a weekend trip, I'd just throw a couple clothes in a backpack and skedaddle!

Now things are a bit more... complicated. There are skincare routines to consider. My hair impossibly frizzy if I don't at least run a flat-iron through it. I NEED my eyeliner or there will be hell to pay. Etc.

What's been helping me in the past few years is having specific routines and an already typed-out list to follow, as well as keeping a separate cache of "travel stuff" all in one place. I'd like to share with you some of the things that have helped me feel less overwhelmed when packing!



Packing cubes


I finally tried out some packing cubes this year, and they're a game changer. See, I'm the kind of woman whose suitcase looks like a hurricane swirled through town the second I open it. And seriously, what do you do with all that dirty underwear anyway? In case you're wondering, I found the answer. They're called laundry pouches and they're wonderful.

Besides keeping your dirty laundry separate, packing cubes also keep all your other clothes separate, manageable, and easy to find. Blessed be!

Okay, folks so here it is.

My first style post in over three years.

And how do I feel about that... cool, I guess?


Actually, I do have a few thoughts on the matter that I'd like to share...
