How I pack

The countdown to my summer holiday is coming to an end - tomorrow I'll be taking a flight to Turkey. Thing to do: pack! What to take: a bikini and some sun screen. I always try to travel light and then fail miserably. If you love your clothes, it's hard to leave some of them behind - no? And I like to have options - what if I don't feel like wearing that one dress... Better pack another, or two - dresses don't take up much suitcase place. This is going to take all day... The people at Louis Vuitton share some packing tips in this little movie. Packing as an art form. See you soon!

Beach essentials


In a couple of days I'll be packing my bags for a little holiday. A whole week of sunshine, tasty food, siestas and swimming in the sea. The items above are going with me to Turkey: the September issue of Vogue and my favourite pair of sunglasses, great sun protection by Bioderma, a couple of books, my customized jeans shorts, a beach bag and my bright blue bikini from Petit Bateau. What are your holiday necessities?

Tiny Atlas Quarterly

A couple of times a year I get to pack my bags for a holiday. Whether it's a short trip to Paris, beach break in Turkey or visit to friends abroad, I always like to read up on my destination in advance. Looking for the perfect coffee bar, a cosy b&b or great restaurant, browsing the internet, flipping through books and asking fellow travellers for advice. 
Tiny Atlas Quarterly is a great place to get inspired. Finland, Santorini or California - the travel logs on this site are refreshing and the photos on this travel site are beautiful. You will start dreaming away of your next holiday within minutes...

tomboy - a girl who acts or dresses in a boyish way

Here's a secret... Some of my favourite clothes are bought in the men's department of some highstreet stores. Crisp shirts, cosy wool sweaters or t-shirts with a relaxed fit - sometimes menswear is just better. On my winter wishlist are a pair of black chelsea boots, a checked flannel shirt and a duffle coat. Need some inspiration to channel your inner tomboy? Check out my Pinterest-board, this blog and this fashion-site.

What I loved... in July

The past month flew by... before I knew it August was knocking on the door. Busy days at work + fun in the sun = one tired, but happy Miss E. The hot days resulted in an even hotter apartment, so no excuses were needed to spent most of my time outside. Drinking litres of ice tea at Homey. Lounging by the petit pool at my friend's house. BBQing to celebrate our new king and queen. Eating the most delicious burger ever, at this place. Watching the sun go down on the river Scheldt. Spending a day at the zoo with my family - love this cute little giraffe. Exploring Utrecht. One more month and I finally have a whole week off: let the countdown begin!
