BOXES OF HAPPINESS!

by admin on / BLOG, LIFESTYLE

You guys know what these mean! My little pieces of happiness! The grey Yeezy Boost 350’s, brand new in the box and yes, more “C’est Normal” by Jon Olsson. My hoodie that was missing in my previous order finally came in and I’m pretty happy about that! That box still satisfies me so hard – Branding on point!

This is just next level branding folks, never seen anything cool like this. I know it’s just a piece of paper hanging on a hoodie but admit… it’s cool.

These little details makes these C’est Normal clothes special. Not just a boring hoodie of T-shirt with a print on it.

Did I already mentioned I like all those details?

And the new grey Yeezy’s, we all know the 350’s already… They all look the same with a different color, collection is growing! Next ones which I will get are the green ones!

I’m saying sorry already… I’ll be rocking that hoodie every day now haha! Peace out!

C’EST NORMAL!

by admin on / BLOG, LIFESTYLE

“YOUR SHIPMENT HAS ARRIVED.” Finally! I ordered these “C’est Normal” products 2 weeks before Sema Show, around 23rd of October. Wanted to take these with me to Las Vegas as it would have been fantastic. But as the brand launch was such a great success, there were a few problems with the actual stock and sold stock. As I ordered pretty much I received an email that my order was delayed as they sold more products then they actually had. Not a problem in the end as I’m still getting what I wanted, just had to wait a bit longer as expected.

This amazingly branded box (sea container) showed up yesterday and excited as I always am for packages I couldn’t wait to open it. It’s hard to see on the photo but the branding is pretty cool. The tape shows a message “sorry for this annoying tape”. Next level branding! I like that!

Quickly opened the box and I’m seeing that I’m missing a lot of pieces. Ordered some hoodies and some other stuff. Hope it will show up soon!

As Jon is a man of details, I appreciate these details a lot! It makes the T-shirt just so much more then just a basic shirt with a print on. I had a t-shirt/hoodie brand 12 years ago and I know how much work and money goes into these details, you got my respect Mr. olsson!

Wondering why this “c’est normal” text stands for? If you follow Jon, Janni & Benji on their journey, you’ll see that their lifestyle is very crazy. From the daily travels, the insane car builds, supercars, villas around the world, yachts, … and the big load of daily work it takes to maintain, run and organize all this. It’s normal for them, “c’est normal” in French! For now, I’ll be rocking those T-shirts in the gym as it’s too cold outside now. Hurry up with my hoodies please! Winter kicked in in Belgium!

*Starts playing: The Candy Shop – 50 Cent* It’s not often you find a car rental shop which rents out all of your dreamcars! Going from a Lamborghini Huracan to a Rolls Royce Wraith to plenty of other rides!

This massive Rolls Royce Ghost is one of the sickest cars for me on the parking lot. Just the way this beast looks is amazing, it stands for luxury and the finer things in life – much like!

And then there was this Aventador SV, on a totally other level as all the other cars here. Coming in matte black with a big load of carbon fiber makes this also high on my ‘want’ list! They can drop it off like this please!

And of course LA wouldn’t be LA if there weren’t any G-wagons to rent! If you have a weakness for G-wagons like Margaux, you’re at the right place! I’ll go for the bright green yellow-ish one! Totally bad*ss!

And why not throw a regular Range Rover in there? Cause that’s sooo Beverly Hills, that’s why!

If all the above rides were not enough or good enough, you can always choose this Maybach, Baller status activated!

And yes, this Defender… you know how I think about Defenders… if not, scroll down a bit on this blog!

This Huracan reminds me of my rental car in Dubai, maybe I should rent a car at Platinum Motorsport next time I’m over in LA!

RDBLA VISIT!

by admin on / BLOG, CARS, LIFESTYLE, TRAVEL

As promised in a previous post, the RDBLA visit. We all got our favourite YouTube or Instagram channels, right? One of my favs is RDBLA, it’s one of the shops who create the sickets car builds out there! No half work, no kid stance but proper work and a perfect stance as it should be. They inspired me so much when it comes to modifying cars and work ethic.

If you were wondering where “RDBLA” stands for: Repair, Design, Build, Los Angeles. The name says it all!

My 7 series has probably the most RDB feeling over it as you can see, all black and slammed to the floor.

When we visited the shop, the guys were eating in the back as it was mid-day but they were so kind to come out and take a picture with us. I can imagine it gets bored going on picture every time some fans come over and getting out for a photo so I really appreciate it!

And for those who say their shop is not the cleanest, you’re totally right and that’s probably why they get so much work done and keep building cars. Did U ever built a project car or ripped a car in parts in just a few days and got it back together only a few days after? If not, you’ll probably never going to understand the “mess” in the workshop.

I bought another RDBLA T-shirt and we got going, thanks for having us and keep doing what you do Vic & Mano! Ps: have mercy with Moses!

Go and give them a follow on Youtube (they’re almost at 200.000 subs) & Instagram!

THE FORGOTTEN ONES!

by admin on / BLOG, LIFESTYLE, TRAVEL

Back in Belgium and back to work! While I was cleaning up my portable hard disk with all the images from the Las Vegas and LA trip, I encountered these photos, too good not to share – right? When you’re out with 6 people on a trip and doing a show report of Sema Show and shooting from everybody’s Instagram/blog, you’ll end up with shooting so much that you just forgot about some pictures.

I would be a fool not to grab some pictures of the Deckorate decks in Vegas!

Just a random jackpot in the Palazzo hotel! Win a Bmw 750i!

Beautiful scenery at the Mirago hotel! Those colors made me do it!

It was a white shoe day! We didn’t care!

Sunset in the Las Vegas desert, it doesn’t got much better then this folks, I can tell you that!

Hotels, hotels, hotels and some more hotels, here’s the MGM Grand!

An empty car parking, I took a picture of it, here it is.

Friday night after the Sema Show is always cool, you’ll see much show cars at the strip. This was one of them, sickest police car imitation you’ll ever see! High Mad Max feeling!

The Strip is always full of traffic and red lights, you think it would get bored after a week but I didn’t care, just enjoy the scenery!

Santa Monica pier! An amusement park on the beach, in the sea, because they can!

Fairfax Avenue, the place to be when you’re a hypebeast (which I’m not).

Supreme and palmtrees, works well together!

Overview at Griffith Park – Los Angeles, I like that!
