Even though I'm not officially married yet, you must allow me to give you one advice. If you are happily engaged, please consider to organise a pre wedding dinner (or rehearsal dinner) for your closest family and friends. Normally such a dinner is held the night before the wedding (which would be tonight in our situation), but we decided to do our pre wedding dinner last Saturday so there would be enough time to recover and...

I'm getting into the bridal mood! Only two weeks from now, 14 days or 344 hours. And no, I'm not obsessed nor stressed. I'm just extremely excited and ready for our big day! Besides the fact that I feel as a true bride-to-be, it occurred to me that I start wearing more and more white shirts and dresses, unconsciously and unintentional. I don't know, my eyes seem to...

As our big day is only 21 days away, I'm starting to get very excited. The final preparations for the wedding are being made like visiting the flower shop for the bouquets and the jeweler for the rings as well as making appointments with the hair dresser and visagist so I can truly make a smashing appearance on 12 March. But I noted that I'm definitely not the only one who wants...

For those who follow me on Snapchat already know that I escaped the Dutch winter and flew to Marbella: my second home, my happy place and my interpretation of an amazing cozy and welcoming family house. Whether I come here with friends or family and whether it is winter or summer, an amazing holiday is assured. At this location the flowers are more beautiful, the sun is brighter, the...

One of the best parts of a wedding is the cake! It is often 'the icing on the reception' and it should be a reflection of the style of the wedding and taste of the newly weds as they have to cut their wedding cake  in front of all your friends and family. Traditionally, wedding cakes were made to bring good luck to the bride and the groom as well as...

Some couples say Y A Y, others say N A Y when it comes to whether or not they appreciate guests wearing hats to their wedding. I can understand if the groom and bride-to-be rather don't want their guests wearing a hat on their big day. But from what you can expect from my style, I find hats super cheerful, festive, elegant and chic. One person who further enhanced my love for...

The way Aladdin takes Jasmine on a magic carpet ride is something I dreamt about since I was a little girl. And even though my boy didn't have a magic carpet, he did show me a whole new world: Marrakesh! Our hotel, Riad Tawargit, was our palace and has just so many romantic and beautiful little corners, which made this place the perfect location for this fashion shoot. It's true: this city,...

So tell me, which items are listed on your Sinterklaas wishlist? Yes I know, this event is traditionally a celebration for the little ones. But I simply dare to ask this question as this event is still loved by many of the grown ups. Like me; I just can't wait for 5 December! This year we meet my family in Friesland to celebrate 'pakjesavond' with poems and little presents while we meet...

I am just thrilled to publish this interview with a very dear and special friend! When we met in Leiden 10 years ago, I was immediately impressed by Charlotte. I thought of her as a hotshot, not only because she was very beautiful and stylish, but also because I saw her as a very ambitious person who knew exactly what she wanted, and - even more admirable - how to...

In about 133 days it is going to happen: our wedding day!! Yes, I admit I am counting down the days for this big day. Most people who are married are telling me that the 'anticipatory pleasure' is almost just as good fun as the wedding itself. So I am going it, like visiting at least 15 different wedding dresses stores with my 'say-yes-to-the-dress-crew', watching 13 different wedding...
