Amsterdam

Wow, what a week is ahead of us! While I write this blog, I'm sitting in our chaotic apartment as we are packing our things to get ready for our big move! Because we are moving from our apartment in Amsterdam to our house in Haarlem. This is my fourth time changing homes and cities in 2,5 years, so I should be used to it right now;). And even though I am super excited...

Happy Thursday! I'm beyond excited as I'm 25 weeks pregnant today! Yes, there is a tiny human being growing in me and I'm so thankful and happy to become a mom and to experience this beautiful pregnancy! I feel these nine months are flying by and have to admit I can’t wait to meet my baby boy. Especially now that we got our amazing Stokke Trailz Nordic Terrain Stroller; everything starts to...

Now that I'm almost 20 weeks pregnant, I'm full in bloom and want to show you these elegant and stylish Spring styles. Because I refuse to give in on style, even though my looks might get a little bit more effortless to wear. And what better place to pick for this shoot than these beautiful blossoming trees. My bag is more on the casual side but very elegant and stylish. Its...

First of all, thank you so much for all the amazing messages on my former blog post, the pregnancy announcement. We are over the moon to welcome this baby in the beginning of September and so happy that the word is out. Because now we can stop the lies and start sharing the joy and excitement. Everything is going super well and the baby is growing great according...

Happy Tuesday! A happy sweater for a bright sunny day in Amsterdam. Because I am so happy that the freezing cold, the icy air from Siberia, finally blew over. Even though Amsterdam looked more beautiful than ever before - have you seen all the people ice-skating on the frozen canals? - I literally catched the Siberian cold. And girl, I forgot how much it sucks to be sick and not be...

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,...
