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.

As I am a big baglover,...

Ohhhhh, how much I love the spring feeling. Not only because it's getting warmer and the days are getting brighter, but also because I can pull my favourite bright coloured items out of my closet again. Like the blue heeled boots that are definitely belonging to my top 3 of shoes. The dress is by Filippa K and I love to wear it as the whites always make you look...
