I often get the question where I get my inspiration from. The better question is: what does not inspire me! I am a walking (and talking) sponge. Of course travelling, museums, the usual suspects...but I also find inspiration daily just from biking around in my beautiful city, meeting up with friends for a coffee or dinner, people walking in the park, running along the Amstel river....simple daily life reallly...
Before I started my Flagship store in the historic centre I was bouncing all over the planet and I didn;t really know yet where I was heading to. Starting the store has given me a foundation, more structure and focus but it also keeps me more 'in town', but no worries I still do travel enough :).
Here are some snapshots of the last week or so which I hope will inspire you!

You can follow me on Facebook, Instagram and/or Twitter for more regular up-dates (oh yes and I do have Pinterest too :)) and for running I use the Nike app click here if you want to know more.


  1. Ohhh I love that city so much! I was just going thru bookings to plan a new years eve trip there. My 5th one. Allways love to go and next time I will visit your store! It looks amazing!

  2. Total crush on all that you do and the city you call home!



  3. Ahhhhh, all these beautiful snaps make me miss Amsterdam. Your city is beautiful! :)

  4. Sunrise is so gorgeous thing to admire at love it. And so as your storefront in the evening love the color. :) Got my eye on your next posts.
