I felt really inspired after visiting ShowUp this weekend. After I saw all these creative people living their dream by ‘creating’ I thought more about my creative dreams and about finding a way to do something with them. The problem with me is that I like so many different things. I like photography and fashion, design and illustration to name just a few. And then there is this whole ‘spiritual’ side of me (which I […]

I had the best weekend! On Saturday I was one of the models for one of Holly’s gorgeous bridalshoots *blush* with the amazing photographer Anouschka Rokebrand (more on that soon) and today I went to the ShowUp trade fair with Nina from Paper Stories. We saw a lot of beautiful stuff and on top of that it was just really nice to be inspired together with a friend. I will pick some brands to blog about in the […]

So it isn’t Valentine’s day yet or Christmas, but still there’s always a good reason to light a candle or getting jewelry. Recently I was approached by JewelCandle company to blog about their scented candles. I liked the concept of lighting a candle and finding a piece of jewelry in it! I love jewelry (and scented candles)! The JewelCandles are made by hand of natural products and each candle holds a piece of jewelry like […]

I wrote earlier about Deyrolle in Paris and my wish to sometime go there. Well, this year, while we were crossing Paris by car in a rush to get to our hotel at the city’s airport, I looked to my left and saw the very shop of my dreams! It was the most luckiest of coincidences (but of course I don’t believe in chance). How absurd to be driving through that immense city without any plan […]

I love Scandinavian design don’t get me wrong, but there is something about French shops and their stuff that is just… well, comforting. Generally there is more color and the products are more arty and alive. I guess every country has its own unique flavor when it comes to decorating. I’m still not sure what my flavor exactly is.. One thing I am sure of is I love Mushkane, an eco-shop in France that sells […]

It’s been a while since I wrote a blogpost. A lot has happened in my little life, I left my job after six years and because it was a job I cherished it was all very emotional. However I do think it is for the best. I wasn’t happy for a while and didn’t feel it was the place for me anymore. Sometimes life gives you lemons and then you need to make lemonade. I […]

I definitely feel spring in the air, it’s getting lighter and warmer. I also feel a little bit more at ease. The dust of last year’s drama has somewhat settled and I’m looking towards the future again. I’m having more inspiration and ideas and feeling more like me again. One of my exciting ideas has come to live: I’m now blogging together with a friend at; a Dutch mind-body-spirit blog. If you’re Dutch (and […]

I love wallpaper. The only reason I don’t have any wallpaper at home is because I can’t choose one and because my taste doesn’t necessarily correspond with that of my mister. I do love how it brings life to a room and really sets a specific mood. The difficult thing with me though is that I’m actually very eclectic (although obviously pastel tones are a favorite) and love so many styles. One that would fit […]

Remember when I wrote about Minted? I’m really in love with this concept and couldn’t really wait to try to enter one of my designs. I know I know, it’s early and I’m not nearly good enough, but I tried anyway and entered the Minted West Elm competition with three designs. If you would like to vote for me you can do so here. I would really appreciate it, since the chance for me winning […]

I’m totally in love with these two ladies. I’m an avid reader of their blogs By Fryd and Hilde Mork where they do nothing less than making art (and making me feel like an absolute beginner in the process). They have an aesthetic that really resonates with me. They also have a shop where they sell beautiful quality pieces. If you are quick you can still join their giveaway! (I certainly am) {HYSJ 01 // AUGUST 2013 copyright HYSJ}
