New York.. New York.. Who doesn't love New York?! With its big and famous streets as Broadway, Wall Street and Fifth Avenue, the beautiful bridges (my favourite is the Brooklyn bridge), its beautiful buildings (hello Empire State and Flatiron) as well as its romantic Central park, its crazy Times Square, iconic Statue of Liberty, Rockefeller centre and Grand Central Terminal. But it is also the city that is famous...

Isn't this the perfect happy winter weekend attire? The casual multicolor casual sweater with the big sequins and the bishop sleeves is keeping me warm in the cold cold weather. I'm on my way to Terschelling, one of the Waddeneilanden in the north of The Netherlands. It is going to be sunny but crisp and I forsee long walks on the beach, a lot of hot chocolate, followed by red...

Pink has a special power. Because no matter how dark and short the days in winter are, pink has the power to brighten up any day. It is the passion and power of red softened with the purity, openness and completeness of white. The deeper the pink, the more passion and energy it has. I received this Chicwish cardigan per mail in the beginning of November and can't believe I...

Our stay at the Graduate Hotel in Charlottesville was fun, convenient, funky & elegant! We always wanted to visit a University town and Charlottesville is one of the greatest in the USA. Our stay at the Graduate Charlottesville turned out to be a great surprise on our road-trip from Houston to New York! Charlottesville is one of the biggest and fun university towns to visit and it was the home of two Presidents of the...

However, I do realise that I'm very lucky to celebrate Christmas is such a warm, rich and delicious way and I truly hope you can do the same way. I send a lot of love to all of you in...

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...

Memphis is the city of Elvis and Johny Cash; the city of blues, soul and rock & roll. It has a quirky charm, a cool history and is fairly romantic. Memphis is a city on the Mississippi river in southwest Tennessee and was named after the ancient capital of Egypt on the Nile River. It is also the town of bbq as well as ducks. Yes, you read it correctly,...

So last weekend we did it! We finally visited Charleston, the beautiful city in South Carolina, famous for its historic charm and well preserved architecture with its colourful houses. This town was on my bucket-list and the fifth stop on our road-trip, after Jefferson, Memphis, Nashville and Savannah. Charleston is the wedding capital of the USA as well as the city where the shot was fired that started...

What to wear for the holidays?! A question that you ask yourself every year again. Because it is the party season and we should dress accordingly! It is the season to spend with your family and friends, for gifts, for drinking and dining. For me it starts with Thanksgiving in November and I am so excited to tell you that we will be celebrating Turkey Day in New York! We are...
