Happy New Year!

Winter has crept up on me and I'm feeling a bit feverish. Time for some Tender Loving Care, aka me time in the bathroom. I've stocked up on some beauty essentials: body oil, soothing lip balm, captivating showergel, scented candles, perfumed shampoo etcetera. All that and a good night's sleep will get me in tip-top shape for New Year's eve.

Okay, so judging by the looks I get when I wear my new furry boots people don't get the Yeti look Chanel came up with for AW 10/11. I'm hooked however. It's the first winter I don't have cold feet and am now contemplating buying a fur coat, fur stole and fur hoodie. Faux fur, here I come!

Merry Christmas!


Fait main


Just received a package from the postman. The book I had ordered has finally arrived: Paris - made by hand. Talented stylist Pia Bijkerk has collected the adresses for more than 50 shops and ateliers where you can buy all things handmade. She guides you trough Paris on a treasure hunt for unique designer objects and vintage finds. Can't wait for my next visit, who knows what I'll find...

Back to black


Because black is, and will always be, one of my favourite colors for clothes.

Checks mate


Ever since I first saw the guys from William Lawson on screen in their tartan skirts, I've loved checked clothes. A checked shirt gives an instant fresh and young look, thus it's a staple in my wardrobe.

Gold fever


The holiday parties are around the corner and after searching the perfect party dress, it's time to figure out what make-up to wear. Inspired by the recent metallic mania on the runways and Hollywood diva Marlene Dietrich, who was rumoured to have gold dust sprinkled on her hair to gleam on film, I think gold is a good choice. Flirty lips with golden lipstick, luminescent skin,  shimmery eyes and to top off a warm, musky scent.

Winter is kicking in and it's getting colder every day. The first snow has fallen, time to get my warm winter coats out of storage. And maybe buy myself an extra one, because I felt inspired looking at the pictures below...

I'm dreaming of a white kitchen


Europe is covered in snow and apart from dreaming of a white Christmas, I also have visions of the beautiful white kitchen I want in my new place. I'm still looking for that dream-appartment, but already have a moodboard ready with pictures of thé kitchen. I hope to be making Christmas dinner in my brand spanking new kitchen next year...
