Celebrate Tag

There is a big celebration going on this weekend as I'm turning 30 on the 30th of July! Should I be excited? Should I be scared? Should I be happy? Or thankful? Probably a little bit of all. Excited because as I'm climbing up to 30, life only gets better so it probably will continue now that I will be joining the "third floor". Scared of realising that my fear of turning old...

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,...

Glitters, glisters and sparkles..! The more the better at Christmas time. They assure the ultimate party spirit and blend so well with all the Christmas lights. Plus, you make a shiny entrée when you enter the venue where you will celebrate Christmas. There is no other piece as vibrant and fun as a sequin dress so it might not come as a surprise that I reached for this iconic holiday...

Pink is the new red! So this year we don't appear in our traditional red dress at the Christmas party, but we go for pink! With a little glister and glamour of course and a wink to red. Because even if we change things a little bit, we can not entirely let go of the traditions. So to inspire you on what to wear to a Christmas party this year,...

The Christmas lights are on, the trees are decorated and the carols are coming through the radio. Christmas is coming..! Are you excited?! Counting down the days? And did you move your bed next to the Christmas tree? Well, no matter to which degree your love for Christmas goes, we all love gifts! That is why the ultimate Christmas wish list was prepared with my favourite accessories and apparel that would...

Now that November is here, I'm getting in the holidays vibes. Not only because today I show you the first holiday party outfit of the year, but mainly because the Christmas lights are hanging throughout San Francisco. In California they actually decorate the palm trees with those little lights which is a whole new experience for a Dutch girl like me. It's magical, beautiful and very special. And every night...

Ohhhh, how I love roses, champagne and birthdays!! They all came together last Saturday at The Ivy restaurant in West Hollywood. It is the most colourful restaurant I have ever been. There were bright coloured roses everywhere and we were welcomed with a glass of champagne. And after we sat down at our romantic table on the beautiful flowery terrace, the scones arrived with fresh marmalade and butter. For a second I...

How to describe the most beautiful day of your life with the man of your dreams surrounded by all the people you love most while you are wearing the most gorgeous gown ever?!! I find it actually very hard to find the right words to tell you about our magnificent wedding day. I could never have imagined that one day could be filled with so much love, so much beauty and so...

The festival of the year is kicking off this weekend and that means the festival season is on! I'm talking about Coachella, an annual music and arts festival in the City of Eternal Sunshine in California. Last year I showed you my favourite looks of Coachella 2015 as it an all-festival-long fashion show. You can expect that such a report will appear again on this blog this year with all the trends, do's...
