After being pregnant and delivering a baby 5 months ago, I really wanted to start working out again. As we recently moved to a new city as well, I didn't know yet which sport club I wanted to join. Then I learned about Stay All Fit, a membership that gives you unlimited access to the premium sports locations within Haarlem, Amsterdam, The Hague and Rotterdam. I live in Haarlem,...

'Investeer in een mooie jas' zei mijn oma vroeger altijd. Dit kledingstuk is namelijk het allerbelangrijkste in je kledingkast. Je draagt het elke dag en je maakt hiermee je eerste indruk als je iemand ontmoet. Dus zeker elke euro waard. Daarom vind ik het ook altijd het leukste om in een nieuwe jas te investeren. Soms kies ik voor een statement jas die helemaal on trend is en het jaar...

After Thanksgiving and 'Sinterklaas' the celebrations aren't over. Actually, I always feel like these holidays are a so-called 'starter' for the holiday of the holidays: Christmas! Finally, ‘Tis the season for tuxedos, candy cane magic and candle lights...

After we moved back from the USA in December, we knew we wanted to purchase a house. A dream since I was a little girl, to start a family with the man I love in the house we would raise our children. And after two months of searching, we found our perfect house. As from the minute I walked in, I knew it. I felt it. This is...

As you probably know, we moved to Haarlem exactly one month ago! And even though this is our 4th move in 2 years, I still find it hard to decorate. Especially as this is the big thing: this is our own house & we are not planning on moving any time soon. So the home decoration is taken very seriously and needs to be perfect. In this regard...

Wow, what a week is ahead of us! While I write this blog, I'm sitting in our chaotic apartment as we are packing our things to get ready for our big move! Because we are moving from our apartment in Amsterdam to our house in Haarlem. This is my fourth time changing homes and cities in 2,5 years, so I should be used to it right now;). And even though I am super excited...

Whoaaa: we are having a baby boy! After the pregnancy announcement and the first bump date blog articles, I couldn't be more excited than telling you that we are expecting a son in September. We are over the blues about it as there are just so many great things about having a baby boy! Before I continue, I admit that we would have been equally happy with a baby girl, as long...

Skiing is the best feeling in the world. Especially in Verbier, Switzerland when the weather conditions are perfect, you have the greatest company and with the best equipment. And for that I went to Mountain Air (click here), a brand new ski shop next to the main lift in Verbier. As they have over 35 years of experience, this is the place to go to get everything you need for...

The first time I heart about jet skiing on the Hudson in winter, I thought I didn't understand it correctly. It seemed to be crazy and definitely very cold. So I assumed there was another Hudson river on our beautiful planet earth I didn't know about. But soon enough I checked the Sea the City website and I found out it was exactly what it sounds like: jet ski...

Close your eyes and think of the most charming American residence, surrounded by trees and ridges, where music is playing everywhere and more fireplaces are crisping than you can count. Imagine a mansion where the elegance and the kindness of the innkeepers match the beauty of the mountains. At the Yellow House Bed and Breakfast in Waynesville, North Carolina, this is reality.  It is a neo-classical house with a large history and history...
