My name is Inge, I live in Antwerp and am a lucky duck because Belgium’s central location makes it the perfect base for exploring most European cities. For a city gal like myself, nothing beats a day of wandering around town, taking in the mix of street style and designer fashion, doing a spot of shopping and getting a taste of the local cuisine and culture.
I have a masters degree in Translation and 17 years of experience in the editorial, marketing and printing side of the publishing industry. In addition to my involvement in YLF I currently work as an independent writer and translator, specializing in travel, books, lifestyle and food. Playing with language until every last detail falls into place makes me happy. Helping people find things is my other passion. From a new good read, an evening bag in an unusual colour to a quaint Parisian B&B or gift and decorating ideas for a children’s party… researching every option out there and coming up with something a little unexpected and “very you” is my idea of a dream job.
In 2008 a style renewal was in order. While scouring the internet for advice on how to achieve a more professional and polished look, I found YLF. Angie’s style philosophy really resonated with me, I devoured the entire archives in a few sittings and never left. Since October 2011 I write for YLF, coordinate our competitions, run YLF Books (including the book club) and help with community support. Feel free to send me a private message any time you want to chat about books or need to have some sleuthing done.
