Stripes, monsters, mice

Stripes, monsters, mice – it’s just a selection [read: my last week’s purchase] of the crazy cool things they sell at An Apple A Day, the kids concept store in Utrecht that is close to becoming my one-stop address for a special children’s gift or piece of clothing for my little ones. Go visit. Do. [And note Read more…

Letters to Shino

Last week I received another package from my friend Shino from Tokyo. I love it when I receive a card or letter by mail, especially when it’s from Shino, since everything from her is a joy for the eye + heart. I wanted to write her back and instead of sending her the usual series of Read more…

Happy New Focus!

Am I still on time? Oh, whatever. Happy New Year!!! I wish you all a year filled with love and happiness. And should life bother you with any difficulties, I wish you the courage to face and experience them, trusting that things will get better over time. As my grandmother used to say: ‘I’m sure Read more…

Merry Christmas wrapping!

Thanks to An Apple A Day – the kids concept store in Utrecht I should really do a blog post about some time, that was so kind (after continuous begging from my side) to sell me some of their nice decorating stickers – my presents are nicely wrapped again this year. :)

Nice | Let it shine

The sun, breaking its way through the streets of Nice, a weekend in October. Perhaps it was driven by the force of love (that of my brother-in-law Paul and his girlfriend Klaske who tied the knot that weekend, to be more precise). Who knows… What I do know is that no matter the forces, we had such Read more…

Pourquoi pas?

Excitement at somebody’s toilet – the art of interior decorating as far as toilets are concerned just got a whole new dimension to it. Note from the author: ceci n’est pas un pistolet. ;)

Djoeke – full of lig...

Last weekend we returned from a nice and relaxing holiday in France/Italy. A little summary for those who are interested: Part 1 / a week in a mobile home on a cute little camping site close to Lake of Aiguebelette, near the French Alps. Perfectly sky blue lake, crispy fresh mountain air and – most important – Read more…

My love affair with Adrian...

Why change a winning team? Yep, when I love something, I go all the way. I like to think of myself as the adventurous type, but unfortunately the opposite is true: I’m the boring type. I wear the same (crazy cool) (at least that’s what I like to think) outfit* over and over again, cook Read more…

Me, my family and I

So, talking about pumping… (yeah, I know, it’s been a while. This post has been waiting for months to be posted… Sorry!) Last year Oscar arrived to our little family. I said it before but I’am saying it again: the thankfulness and happiness – wow. This might be my own, sometimes (ok, since the birth Read more…

Dries van Noten

When in Antwerp, don’t forget to visit the Dries van Noten exhibition ‘Inspiration’ in the MoMu Fashion Museum. It’s the very first time the fashion designer discloses his oeuvre in any exhibition and reveals the singularity of his creative process, illustrated with numerous sources of inspiration. Worth a visit!

I Read You

Last weekend we were in Berlin (no kids involved) (thank you parents-in-law)! Unfortunately the usual suspects – our dear friends Lasse & Shino – weren’t there this time, but we had a great time with Lot & Pim (Daan’s sister + her boyfriend, who temporarily live in Berlin) and some good restaurants, shops, cycling and Read more…
