Lovers, adventure seekers, wine addicts and shopaholics! I found you the perfect place to visit in California. As well as the perfect hotel, which is always playing a big part of turning your weekend-getaway into a success! So if you love tasting wine, beautiful beaches, art, restaurants and shopping, you have to visit Carmel. Carmel is a wonderfully romantic town on the west coast of California. It is only 2 hours...

I secretly have a great weakness for cocktails. And the west-coast is facilitating this love very well! Now with the holidays coming up, I wanted to make sure that I can make an impression on my guests. I was therefore super excited to go to popular Hot Stove Society (click here) last Friday, which is located in the beautiful Hotel Andra in Downtown Seattle. It is a year-round cooking...

Fall is here and that is the season to refresh your wardrobe as well as your skin routine. We have to make sure that we slowly transition from the warm summer to the cold winter so that our skin is ready, as well as our closet...

Last weekend we experienced the most romantic getaway along the Californian Coast line! We escaped the everyday life by staying at the Inn at Schoolhouse Creek & Spa, just 5 minutes away from the historic town Mendocino. After we drove all the way up on Highway One and stopped for oysters along the coast, we arrived at this amazing scenic Oceanside hotel in the afternoon. The innkeeper most kindly...

A few weeks ago I was invited to the big birthday party of my friend who is living in San Francisco with her family. She is originally from Spain and had organised an amazing garden feast in the opportune theme, 'A Spanish night'! The entire party was set up with a lot of attention for detail as there was sangria, Spanish tapas and a big bowl of paella! And as she...

One of my favourite things to do in the weekends is to jump on my bike and explore San Francisco! From Hayes Valley to the Painted Ladies and via Fillmore Street to the Marina to enjoy a coffee with the beautiful view over the Golden Gate Bridge. On my way back I always stop at the Palace of Fine Arts, an extraordinary monumental building originally constructed for an art exposition in 1915....

You always want something you don't have, right? Something that you long for, and something that you admire from someone else. So when you have straight hair like me, you want to have wavy hair! I absolutely adore ladies with beautiful curls, including those of my best friend, Nathalie (remember the article she wrote about bags?). Yes, I even go sleeping hoping that I will wake up with...

Whether you have an office job or are a freelancer, whether it's full or part time and whether you are a banker or fashion editor, you'll need a workspace. And whether you have the corner office, a flexible workspace or work from home, you'll need a desk. I personally like a clean, personal and inspiring desk. If you are coffee-addict, your coffee cup will be on the table and...

When you are lucky to visit San Francisco, you must spend your time very well. It is quite a big city, with a lot to do and to discover. Most people visit this city for the weekend or spend 2 or 3 days here when they make a road trip through California. As I am a proud citizen of this city, I prepared this San Francisco Travel Guide...
