When you fly to Maui, you will see nothing but sea when you look out of the airplane window. For 5,5 hours up in the sky, you can only see water which made me realise that the Pacific Ocean is so big. It looked so pretty from up above and I started wondering what would live beneath, in the deep - deep - waters. I was therefore very happy that...

Now that Spring is officially here, it is very important to prepare for the summer in style. Because we ladies want to shine on the beach, in the most elegant way. I'm very picky when it comes to swimwear as I want my swimwear to be unique, colorful, elegant and fun. And I finally found a designer that gives me all that I want. BOAMAR Swimwear is a fashion label that...

When I was packing for Maui I found it hard to decide what to bring. I had never been to Hawaii so I did not know exactly what to expect. So I needed to bring dresses that I could dress up and down and could wear day and night. And one of those dresses was this cute black embroidered dress by Shein. Because whether went for a walk on the...

'Just sit down, relax and in a few hours you will arrive in paradise', the captain said when we entered the plane that was going to take us to Maui. From San Francisco it is a 5,5 hours’ flight before you are able to set foot on one of the islands of Hawaii, which is the most secluded place on earth. We picked Maui to celebrate our one-year anniversary,...

The beach is my favourite place in the world! I love the waves, the feeling of the sand between my toes, and the wind blowing through my hair. I gives a certain feeling of freedom, endless possibilities and ultimate relaxation. So when Fima from Fima Photography asked me where I wanted to take the pictures in this cute summer dress, new Polette prescription sunglasses and one of favourite...

I never knew that trees could be so beautiful. And so incredibly impressive! Especially when they are ridiculously large and covered in fresh snow. Because a lot of white flakes fall down on the big trees in Sequoia National Park in winter. We decided to visit the park only three days before we drove up there, which is a 5,5 hours drive down south from San Francisco. Very random and...

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,...

We were truly lucky to spend two days in Lake Tahoe, a beautiful place at the border of California and Nevada. In summer you can go on the greatest outdoors activities like biking, hiking and sailing, but also in winter it is a great place to be as it turns into a true Winter Wonderland. There are several areas where you can ski while you are overlooking the sapphire-blue waters...

As I told you in this article last week, I don't set any new year resolutions. However, I do like to make a lot of new travel plans. As I live in the USA, I made a list of the most amazing places in this country that I would love to visit in 2017. As always, my list is quite extensive (a girl can dream right) but I limited...

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,...
