Some days there isn’t an outfit, quote or recipe. Maybe not even shoes.

Betty Blue

To celebrate my good friend Gerrit’s birthday we went to Amsterdam for coffee and cake.
He knew that this place recently opened and thought it would be nice to have the celebration there. It has an urban vibe, it could have been us sitting in New York or Paris.
:-)
The pastry’s are very good so be sure to go and visit Betty Blue and indulge!

Going for a run

A while ago a colleague of mine was assembling a team to run at the Spieren for spieren run in Hilversum. She asked if I would join, of course I said YES, there was plenty of time to practice…

Last sunday was the big day. I did practice, once. But now there was no going back. Don’t ask me how I made it to the finish. Still, it was fun and next year I’ll probably say YES just as enthusiastically as this year.

After the run I went to see my friends who have the most adorable daughter! Still in the mood for a little race me and her went for it but unfortunately I lost :-). A really fun day and the two days after during which I could barely walk because of the muscle pain were worth it.

In the country part 2

While we were in Friesland we went hiking through the Woods. Really beautiful nature and different types of landscape and weather.  While we were hiking a little ice storm passed and I tried to seek shelter under a tree and in my coat. But minutes later the sun was shining. Which makes a beautiful sky.  When we got to the house we settled in front of the fireplace with bubbles and roasted some marshmallows. Yummm.

Me time

This week I have a few days off work. It’s time to relax, time for some me-time.

Sleeping in, drinking coffee, reading magazines, doing some shopping, meeting friends and making photos for the blog. Even going to the sauna for the first time. All good things that I am looking forward to. Wish you all a happy week!

Merry Christmas

The last couple of weeks have been very busy in our store. I have been working 6 days a week for a while now and haven’t had the time to make some new outfit posts for Christmas. So I’ll just post links to these two video’s of my favorite Christmas songs:

Wham – Last Christmas

Ella Fitzgerald – Have yourself a merry little Christmas

I must have heard this last song a million times and I still love it! Have yourself a merry little Christmas just says it all. I am spending first Christmas day with Twingo the cat and we are having ourselves a merry little Christmas! Tomorrow I will be visiting my family. I hope you are also having a great Christmas with your loved ones.

Merry Christmas
