Nordic Art

A few months ago I saw this beautiful poster somewhere in a train station. It really gave me a spring feeling in the middle of a cold winterday. Nordic art is an exposition in the very bright, colourful and modern Groninger Museum. And yesterday I finally took the train to the northern part ( really it isn't that far...) of the Netherlands to see it myself! In one word: beautiful!! A mix of splendid landscapes, portraits and scenes from everyday rural life. Next time I'll just go to see more of the building, even the stairs is art in itself.

Localilo Amsterdam #7

Haarlemmerstraat & Dijk, my hood. I'm sooo happy to be surrounded with the most beautiful shops and cafe's in town. This long street always surprises me. There's alwaaaaays something going on... New shops, pop-up stores, bars and restaurants. A good mix of fashion, living and coffee spots. A little update today!

* eat: Vinnies Deli on the Haarlemmerstraat! One of my favourite spots to stop and treat myself on a nice coffee, granola with fresh fruit, carrot cake... lunch, salads... actually on anything... it's lovely to be there and to enjoy their beautiful vintage furniture! Feels like home. Love it.

* dinner: Restaurant Lof. I really wonder why this restaurant is one of the best kept secrets in town. Before you know it you walk by and don't even see it. But, hidden behind the bright blue door and plants in the window is a lovely restaurant. They serve 3/4 course menu with beautiful, delicious and original food... yam!!


* pop-up: 24 Flower. A new online flower concept. Fresh flowers direct from the floriculturist ( nice word) But they pop-up too! This time on the Dijk. In the pop-up store you can choose between different qualities: First Class Fresh, then you can at least enjoy your tulips for 10 days. But if they are less fresh, you pay less as well. Different labels, different qualities. Like!

Lalala LOVE

LalalaLOVE! Wish you a happy Valentines day with lot's of lovely moments!

Styling fantastique!

I just like the way the styling of these photo's has been done. You can really see and feel that the stylist had so much fun while making it! The styling makes the products even better and nicer to look at and that's how it should be... Nice!

It's summer at HEMA!

When I received the pictures of the new HEMA summer collection a smile appeared on my face... Soooo proud on my styling buddies! They have done such a great job and designed a beautiful new collection. I was very pleased to see the new school stuff, because I helped designing on this collection too :) But the best part of it is that most of these products are already in store... and affordable yesss! My ultimate favourite: the inflatable tompouce!
