Amsterdam

Living abroad is a true dream! Especially in Houston, Texas, where I currently live. The weather is amazing, the food is delicious and the people are super friendly and fun. The only thing that is making it a little difficult, is being far away from my friends and family in Amsterdam. So when we go back, we try to see as many of them as we can. It...

After living in Amsterdam for 5 years, I found myself being a tourist in this city after all. Because these days I call San Francisco home so that means that when we visited Amsterdam for Christmas, we had to find ourselves a place to stay. We are the kind of couple who love the charm of fun boutique hotels and bed and breakfasts as we find it a personal,...

When it is cold, dark and dreary outside, it is easy to fall into a winter-depression. And even though I always try to ignore the fact that I'm less active and merry in winter, I can understand that others simply can't. Last week I published the article with 5 reasons why to love winter. And in addition to that article, I share this look which will let any girl love...

It was so much fun to be back in the Netherlands for Christmas and seeing all of my friends and family. I loved being on my bike again and crossing the canals of Amsterdam to visit my favourite shops and cafes. However, it was also a huge shock in terms of temperatures after I got used to the California weather. And that is why I show you this...

There are a few typical Dutch things I miss now that I live the expat life in San Francisco. So when we were back in Amsterdam for Christmas I made sure I feed those cravings. Like eating 'bitterballen' (kind of fried meatballs) and 'ontbijtkoek' (kind of honey cake) as well as visiting my favourite places. Like the Museum of Bags and Pursus (Tassenmuseum Hendrikje). As I am a big baglover,...

Last call!!! Our last day in the beautiful Amsterdam has come as we will fly to San Francisco tomorrow morning. I can tell you: I'm ready for a new adventure!! We moved out of our apartment last weekend, hugged our family and friends bye bye and I compiled the best outfit for our flight to San Francisco! My mother taught me to dress in style as you can only make a...

It's all over my face: I'm excited!! Very excited! Yesterday I told you all about our next big adventure, being our move the other side of the world. Yes, it is finally going to happen! On Wednesday we will get on the plane that will take us to San Francisco, The City by the Bay! So only 4 days left in the beautiful Amsterdam. As from 2011 I...

The festival of the year is kicking off this weekend and that means the festival season is on! I'm talking about Coachella, an annual music and arts festival in the City of Eternal Sunshine in California. Last year I showed you my favourite looks of Coachella 2015 as it an all-festival-long fashion show. You can expect that such a report will appear again on this blog this year with all the trends, do's...

Ohhhhh, how much I love the spring feeling. Not only because it's getting warmer and the days are getting brighter, but also because I can pull my favourite bright coloured items out of my closet again. Like the blue heeled boots that are definitely belonging to my top 3 of shoes. The dress is by Filippa K and I love to wear it as the whites always make you look...

After all the excitement, love and happiness that predominated the past few weeks because of our fabulous and magical wedding, it is time to get back to normal. Obviously with all the beautiful memories in mind and a little pain in my heart as it all went by so fast. But now that my husband and I are back from our perfect mini-honeymoon in Zermatt, it is time...
