He has been on my favorite playlists for years and I saw a bunch of his 29 movies, but I had never seen him perform on the big screen. That’s why I was pleasantly surprised when local cinemas broadcasted the Elvis Presley comeback special of 1968. Last Thursday, it was exactly 41 years ago since Elvis passed away. It was also 50 years ago that he made his comeback special after several years of ‘live performance silence’. Enough reasons and a good time to show the Elvis comeback special in theatres on the 16th of August.

Travel blog: The Cuba effect I didn’t expect

July 25, 2018 | Retro life, Travel | 0 comments

It was around the 1st of January when my retro bestie and I decided that we needed to travel more. Now you should know that I am anti-New Year’s Resolutions, but I am definitely pro-travel! Things evolved quickly from there and the excitement really started when we hit the ‘book now’ button. Destination: Cuba. Cuba appealed to us for many reasons. Most and foremost the retro look & feel. Especially when you’re already a huge retro fan living the retro life!

A story to remember: The tattooist of Auschwitz

The tattooist of Auschwitz - De tatoeëerder van Auschwitz

It’s a random Monday evening when I decide to read a book that I’ve saved for this time of the year. 2 hours and 130 pages later, I put the book away. Reluctantly. This is the kind of book that I would like to read in one night, but there’s another workday coming up. The next Sunday I have no appointments and I finish the book in another 3 hours. When I am finished I have mixed feelings. On one hand it’s one of the most beautiful stories I have read in a long time and on the other hand, I’ve just had a detailed glimpse of some of the most black pages in history.

retro style winter coat

When winter time hits, I always get mixed feelings. I love Christmas time and the lovely decorations that cheer up the night in December and all the “top xxx hits of all time” programs. However, I dislike the absence of light that starts around 4PM in winter. But…what I dislike most is the cold, especially in combination with rain and wind.
