Post Card from Antwerp

As they say all work and no play makes jack a dull boy. So what we did at WuChi HQ after a big project was to pack our case and retire for some fresh air in a calmer atmosphere. We spent a few days in Brussels and then unto our loveliest and final destination - Antwerp in Belgium.  The kids loved it and so did we.

I personally feel in love with the old traditional bikes in Antwerp and the fact that people were not in such a haste as we always are here in London. Sometimes, going to calmer environments help you appreciate and enjoy life more. We walked, we relaxed, we shopped, we laughed and we eat.

One of my favourite places there was the champagne and snail soup stall served with a glass of white wine in the old market a few walks away from the buzzing shopping street in city central. Plus the sun was just right and we really had a great time. I will definitely go back even if it is just for the snail soup. I will try and blog more about what we are up to behind the scenes at WuChi because we are not all about lotions and potions we do love our food and some fresh air and a bit of a chat too.
Glad to have made it back to London safely  due to the travel delays caused by the Volcanic Ash.

Behind the Scenes @ WuChi by Maks - April

We have been very busy behind the scenes at WuChi HQ and lots of positive things have happened in the last couple of months, and I would like to share this with you.

Just before the Easter Holidays, I was commissioned by a perfume house and spent sometime working on a range of  hand lotions, liquid soaps and bar soap for their new range of natural products.
Here is a line up of job well done.
