    I will be 37 in a few months. It sounds as surreal as 2016, which to me still sounds like a science-fiction date. Being 37 is just as sci-fi. My birthday has always been and stayed a very special day. For the last 36 years I have been waking up excited and happy, wearing a…

    A table that hides things, a pouf to put my feet up after a long day, a couple of matching pillows and a happy carpet: I am so happy with how a few purchases can make you feel as if you have moved house! Turning Table by Theresa Arns for Menu: the easiest way to…

    The thing I love about the internet (one of many things) is that it builds bridges. It connects people who otherwise would have probably never heard of each other.

    Our bodies are all shaped differently. That is why it’s important to know what looks good on you, and not what is in fashion.

    modepopje #3: Barbie

    Did you ever play with Barbie? I loved her. The stories my sister and I made up were all very similar but Barbie’s wardrobe changed by the minute. It would take us an hour to dress her up, one minute to let her do her Barbie life things and then we went back to changing…
