TRENDS | Lovely winter cocktails

According to a study published by Leopold Vienna, 82% of Dutch people prefer to drink a cocktail in the summer. This is reasonable, because the sun calls for a colourful drink. But are cocktails only meant for the summer? We don’t think so. In the summer, we drink colourful exotic cocktails, but in the winter, we can drink a lovely, delicious cocktail again, like one with a winter liqueur. And let’s not forget that cocktails are always fun at a party! As far as we’re concerned, cocktails can be enjoyed all year!

TRENDS | 10 things you didn’t know about tea

And how do you match tea with delicious appetizers? TALK ABOUT was there and we would like to share some useful tips about tea.

PR & communication | Printed media is alive!

Anyone who says that the role of printed media has disappeared, is wrong in our opinion.
You can hear these phrases every now and then. “The newspaper? That is like flogging a dead horse” or “nowadays nobody reads anymore, printed media has no future”. These are assumptions that are often being made casually and where such dismissing gesture is added. Because printed media is dead. “And otherwise in 10 years. Everybody knows that, right?”

TRENDS | The most beautiful porches

Summer is almost over, but that doesn’t mean that life outside the doors is over too. Even in September and October the weather can still be lovely for you to spend the day outside. For example, a porch or a roof deck is a great place to spend some quality time, nice with a hot drink, a good snack and a blanket to cover yourself. How more romantic could it even be? Or maybe you can enjoy the Sunday afternoon with a magazine and a cup of tea.

Destination PR | Relaxing in Bourgogne

Last week, I spent a week on a beautiful mansion in the heart of Burgundy. When it comes to me, Burgundy is one of the most beautiful regions in the outstanding country: France. Definitely recommended!

On Thursday March 22, we organized the TALK ABOUT EXPERIENCE in Amsterdam. A press event where we presented the latest products of different customers and brands. Experience was the key of the event.

Destination PR | Morocco

It’s January; the holidays are over and what’s the thing we do first? That’s right! Thinking about a holiday destination. It’s my favorite moment to spend my time on! Will it be a distant trip or a camping holiday this year, will I be active or will I just spend some lazy time at the beach? For those who really have no clue, there is the Holiday Fair from 13 to 17 January in Utrecht. Or maybe I can inspire you? Last year, I made a tour of Morocco with my beloved and my kids (6,9 and 12 years old). We slept in kasbahs and under the stars in the Sahara, we enjoyed fresh fish in beautiful fishing villages and wandered around on local fairs. Highly recommended!

Destination PR | 10 x to-do-with-kids in Hong Kong

This summer, we went to Indonesia with our family. We flew with Cathay Pacific and made a stop in Hong Kong. This seemed a very interesting city to me and our second kid also thought it would be nice to spend a few days in China. So eventually, we stayed in Hong Kong for five days. The city made a very special impression on us. Of course, it is a metropolis and therefore it is very crowded (at least in the centre part), but the crowds are organised. Hong Kong is truly a mix of Asia and Europe. Besides the huge skyscrapers, there are for example Asian temples and street markets. We have also discovered that there are many child-friendly sights and theme park rides. I’ve made a top ten of the most fun things we’ve done.
