in the meantime

you can find me on Instagram

found out that Instagram is a very fast way of connecting with so many inspiring, talented and fun people.
meanwhile i am almost finished with my study so i am slowly picking up blogging as well on my other blog, please stop for a visit sometime. 


It's NOT a blog, really!

Discovered that without blogging my beloved camera
started collecting dust.
To give my hobby a bit of a boost
 I created some space online just for photo's &
decided it's NOT a blog, really!
If you want to take a look you're welcome over on:



Let's call the whole thing off

 My blog was never going to be a source of income or a way to start an onlineshop, I always blogged just for the fun of it.
And fun I had, thank you all so much for visiting & commenting, it really means a lot to me!

With my new job came an opportunity to study and to be honest I would be a complete idiot to let this chance pass!
Both my boys go to school and it's time for me to get back to my own career and development.
All in all it means I have less time in a day
and that made me decide to stop blogging.
My spare time I want to just be there for my boys, my husband,
my family & my friends.
I'll still be on Instagram & Twitter!

Remember to celebrate every day
just because it's brand new one!




Today 40 years ago my brother was born. Only once my brother was featured on my blog but 40 years is something that can't pass by unnoticed.

It may seem strange to some but even though he died when he was 12 years old, I celebrate his birthday by getting cake and a bunch of fresh springflowers.
And tonight I will raise my glass to celebrate his life & being.

To live in hearts we leave behind is
not to die.





Had a wonderful day at the IJhallen yesterday. Love the industrial building, great atmosphere, lots of happy people (some very trendy young ladies as well) & great sales.

My friend did some shopping but I was so in to the selling mode that I couldn't focus on all the bargains around. Thankfully she picked up a huge scarf for me (from Cos) & a beautiful blue/green purse.
And I bought the boots she was selling at our stall after looking at them for a few hours & just knew they had to be mine.
At the end of the day I picked up the hat, another hat, a leather clutch & a Dior purse all for just 4 euros!

If you are in the Amsterdam area the first weekend of the month do try & visit the IJhallen for some fleamarketfun!



Day in Instagram

Although Instagram has been saying rather stupid things (about selling peoples photo's & such) I have a lot of fun taking pictures this way.
My 4 Instagrams of this wednesday.
We visited the Museum voor Communicatie & Panorama Mesdag, bought a monkey & some hyacinths.



Count my blessings

getting real enthousiastic about my new work, it feels like a window in my head openend & ideas just fly in.
▲ working from home when T. got the flu.
▲ visiting & working on a convention where I got some time to buy J. a book from his favorite author & have it signed as well 
▲ had a nice converstation about Tony's Chocoloney & research a got these wonderful bars of chocolate as a gift
▲ last week J. had a hearing test & that proved that he is partially deaf, today the hospital called to schedule the operation to place tubes in his ears. The blessing here is the fact that 'the problem' was acknowledged & it's treatable! 
▲ on sunday we went to Nijmegen to visit friends, hopped in Het Valkhof to look at what remained of the Romans that once lived there.
▲ don't let the boys hear it but I am really happy the snow is gone! Sssst...
Hopefully this week Mr. Flu moves out! I am busy with gathering the last pieces to bring with me to the IJhallen (fleamarket) coming saturday! Hopefully I don't have to take everything back with me.
Have a beautiful new week!
