As you probably know, we moved to Haarlem exactly one month ago! And even though this is our 4th move in 2 years, I still find it hard to decorate. Especially as this is the big thing: this is our own house & we are not planning on moving any time soon. So the home decoration is taken very seriously and needs to be perfect. In this regard...

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...

Whoaaa: we are having a baby boy! After the pregnancy announcement and the first bump date blog articles, I couldn't be more excited than telling you that we are expecting a son in September. We are over the blues about it as there are just so many great things about having a baby boy! Before I continue, I admit that we would have been equally happy with a baby girl, as long...

Skiing is the best feeling in the world. Especially in Verbier, Switzerland when the weather conditions are perfect, you have the greatest company and with the best equipment. And for that I went to Mountain Air (click here), a brand new ski shop next to the main lift in Verbier. As they have over 35 years of experience, this is the place to go to get everything you need for...

The first time I heart about jet skiing on the Hudson in winter, I thought I didn't understand it correctly. It seemed to be crazy and definitely very cold. So I assumed there was another Hudson river on our beautiful planet earth I didn't know about. But soon enough I checked the Sea the City website and I found out it was exactly what it sounds like: jet ski...

Close your eyes and think of the most charming American residence, surrounded by trees and ridges, where music is playing everywhere and more fireplaces are crisping than you can count. Imagine a mansion where the elegance and the kindness of the innkeepers match the beauty of the mountains. At the Yellow House Bed and Breakfast in Waynesville, North Carolina, this is reality.  It is a neo-classical house with a large history and history...

Every year you ask yourself, what to do on my birthday?! Shall I host a party or not?! And when you are turning 30, there is no doubt about it: YESSS, YOU DO!! And you do so in the biggest possible way! So when my sweet friend, Britt from The Hello Honey Blog, and I found out that we both turned 30 in July, we came up with the...

So yay..!! I turned 30 last month and I'm still in a very festive mood! As you can see from my smile, I'm very happy at this moment of my life! And as you might know from my birthday dress-article, this month I will share several articles with the theme of 30 things I love to...

I am slowly taking over the Texas casual cowboy style! The comfiest denim shorts, the coolest fringed boots and the perfect saddle bag! Not only is it very practical and versatile, but it is very beautiful and unique as well. The saddle bag's design elements are the curved shape at the bottom, flap detail at top, and a long strap so you can carry it on the shoulder like a shoulder bag,...

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.
