TLC Launch in Belgium

TLC Launch Belgium

Did you know that TLC will finally be available in Belgium? From the 30th of March we can all watch the strangest, most fascinating tv-shows that give us an inside look into the lives of people you probably would not be hanging out with on a regular base. I don't know about you, but back in the Netherlands it was a bit of my guilty pleasure so....

... when I read it was coming to Belgium I was pretty excited. Now I can record all those shows that I like to see when I have some time on my hands! I have seen so many episodes of "Say Yes to the Dress", "Breaking Amish", "My Five Wives", "The Undateables" etc. It has to be the anthropologist in me, because I love observing how people from all walks of life behave and react to certain situations.

TLC cupcakes

TLC even had a launch party right here in Belgium to celebrate its shows! I attended this fun launch and upon arrival I was shown around the rooms and told what I could do. It was actually pretty funny. There was the possibility to dress up in a wedding gown (there were about five or six to choose from) and have your picture taken with the stand-in groom in front of a heart-shaped altar. The groom did a great job looking hopelessly in love with each bride he took a picture with. It was very entertaining! Oh, I did not wear a wedding dress btw.. I did not feel like changing. Yes, I know. I am such a party pooper.

GoldSin Body Jewelry

There was a lounge area where we could sit down, watch the different shows and snack on chocolate goodies by Choccywoccydoodah (a chocolate store, also a show on TLC). Now I am not much of a sweet tooth, but of course I had to try these chocolates! They were delicious. Then we could have our nails done by nail artist Elfi or get our bodies tattooed on with foil tattoos/body jewelry by Gold Sin. I chose a big butterfly on my wrist and a small one behind my ear. Check it out on my Instagram!

TLC the Fabulous Baker Brothers

The men from "The Fabulous Baker Brothers" also joined the launch and they taught us how to make scones. This was really cool, because I have seen lots of scones being prepared on the TV and heard about how hard it is.. so it was great I got the chance to try it out myself! The scones were yummy and my boyfriend ate them all within mere minutes. I also got to meet new bloggers, so that is always fun! And now... I am just waiting for TLC to appear on my television... soon I will have more things to watch other than "Komen Eten" or programs related to Jani! What about you? Do you have any guilty pleasures when it comes to tv?

    1. Hi Melissa! Yeah. I actually thought it was kind of pointless having a TV because I watch so little on it, but with TLC there'll be more interesting shows for me to record ^^ I enjoyed watching Say Yes to the Dress a lot too :D

  4. Sounds like fun.
    Just imagine to be the poor groom, looking longingly at giggling blogger girls all night long. I hope he is married already, because if not he will be traumatized and never want to have a wedding day in real life, I suppose.

    1. Haha, well he was pretty social. The girls were a bit hesitant about dressing up and taking a picture, but he convinced quite a few!

  8. Oh superleuk zeg! Leef ik nu helemaal onder een steen dat ik TLC nog niet echt ken?... Ik kijk de laatste jaren niet meer echt veel televisie wegens tijdsgebrek, dus ik ben niet meer echt mee. Het event zag er ook echt top uit!
    Mijn guilty pleasure? Anything Jani related zou ik zeggen :D en ook wel Geordie Shore, te erg voor woorden maar oh zo grappig
