Mister Right?

So, how was your Valentine?

Mine was pretty nice. An intimite dinner, red wines, candles. Just a quiet evening at home. It proves again, you don't need to spend a whole lot of money to have a good time!
This guy is feeling right. Amazing..., I've never felt it like that before. I've been in love before. Mad love, young love. Some silly love affairs. But this is serious: Could it be the real deal?
Time will have to show me...


San Valentino...

Paris at night
Tre fiammiferi accesi uno per uno nella notte
Il primo per vederti tutto il viso
Il secondo per vederti gli occhi
L'ultimo per vedere la tua bocca
E tutto il buio per ricordarmi queste cose
Mentre ti stringo fra le braccia.

 Jacques Prevert da "Poesie d'Amore"


Gorgeous dinner!

I'm looking forward to a fabulous 6-course dinner at an expensive restaurant in the South of Holland, called Wolfslaar. Just friends and fun. A good start of the weekend. And then.... off to Antwerp!

Jazz on..

As a jazz singer in my spare time, this post by DustJacket Attic definitely made me smile. I immediately ran to my music collection to put on some good old jazz, and started this friday in a wonderfull jazzy way. Let's swing it, ...

Daring Classics

Who ever said classic was boring? I'm definitely loving these images from Massimo Dutti's lookbook featuring Jeisa Chiminazzo. Shot by talented photographers Hunter and Gatti.
Let's dare to go classic! And for the summer of 2011? Massimo Dutti pulls it off again. (Massimo Dutti, 2011)


So sometimes that feeling just creeps up on me: The need to get away! Of course I'm happy where I am. I wouldn't wish to be anywere else. But just spending time elsewhere gives you the space to clear your head. Put things in order. Or just enjoy something out of your ordinairy.

This weekend I will spend with my love in Antwerp, Belgium.
Yes, I would love to go shopping, even if he won't always enjoy those shopping sprees of mine. But I remember this tiny little jazz café. How we spent hours talking, listening to the music, getting to know eachother better. How we walked home, not straight, but in big curves, holding on to eachother, making sure we would get back to our hotelroom safe and sound. He made me feel young and pretty. We drank wine, and laughed together. We walked the tiniest streets together. Our fingers intertwined. Drops of rain didn't bother us. He kept me warm. He warmed my cold cold feet in the night.

Let's go back! I told him the other day. He could only agree.

Dreamy Bedroom

With this bedroom, one of my favorite interior style bloggers called Delight by Design,shows how dark and pastel colors can be a perfect match. Let's just enjoy the view, or rather dream of jumping in!

Go Green!




Winters in Holland are cold. And seeing I've catched some major flue, I'm actually shaking under my duvet. These are the days I wished I could just go to work in my wool cardigans and warm boots, just drink tea all day. Or at least stay home, and cover up. But no, vitising clients take thin and precious blazers...
Which ok, normally I don't mind. But now? Oh hell I do!
