Antwerp, Astrid Nieuwborg, The Next Closet, Iris DuvekotAbout

Hello, my name is Astrid. I’m a 25 year old architecture student living and studying in the fashion capital of Belgium, Antwerp.
Since my life is all about architecture most of the time, Thank God It’s is my much needed outlet for all the other things I do. Next to architecture, fashion is my second love. Writing and photography translate my vision and thoughts on this blog.

Since my previous blog, Thank God It’s Fashion, a lot changed. I grew out of the typical blogger format and felt like one of the thousands bloggers all over the world.

The need to stand out and create something for myself where I can be proud off resulted in this website. I don’t want to call it a blog anymore since I got rid of some of the typical elements defining blogs. Social media is not my priority anymore, if it ever was, nor is quantity above quality. Posting for posting is something I, from now on, refuse to take part in and hopefully you will understand that. So you can not expect regular posts but I will try to satisifie you, my readers, with enough reading material.

The biggest change on this blog is probably the different name, subtle but in my opinion a whole lot stronger. I decided to leave the fashion part out because I don’t want to talk about fashion only, I have a whole lot more to say.
This bunch of messy thoughts are organised according to five categories:

Hopefully these categories will satisfy my needs but it’s possible overtime as this site will grow, change will appear. In one year time, when I will be graduated and on the hunt for a job, I hope this blog will have helped me to decide what I want to do in life. I’m curious what this new chapter will bring me and I hope that you, my precious readers, enjoy this ride with me.

Have fun reading this blog and don’t be shy to react on my posts, write me an email or give suggestions.
