◈ Blog posts about our style. How we style our home, ourselves and everything around us.
An outfit is so much more than just a few pieces of clothing to cover yourself and keep warm… Fashion is a piece of self-expression.
We love beautiful objects and furniture. Preferably with a story behind it. We like to surround ourselves with beatifull objects and art that remind us of somewhere we’ve been, the people we love or something that inspires us.
Follow all our outfit inspiration posts and fashion related topics! View our house, garden, special furniture, art, and other style objects we would love to share with you.

Het eerste echte kinderpartijtje met klasgenootjes van je leven is meestal als je 4 of 5 word. En voor de jarige job een pretty big deal! Haley’s 1ste kinderfeestje thuis hadden we op haar verzoek compleet in Zeemeermin thema gevierd.

You are not the biggest sister, You are not the smallest sister
Somewhere in between. But in your eyes, you are a BIG sister AND a SMALL sister all at once.
In fact. You have everything!
Consciousness, Like mother like daughter +Twinning Lookbook
To have children is for me believing in tomorrow. Planting a garden with them and teaching them to treasure this planet is an essential part of the way we are raising our babies. I went Twinzies with my big girl Miley! Spring is here so a perfect outfit to get out into the garden and enjoy the first rays of sunshine!
This weekend was the summer solstice and we are feeling it in our bones! Summer is coming! I took all the summer clothing from the back of the closet to the front! Re-discovering all my summer favorites.
The only thing that was lacking was a fresh pair of summer loving specs. So Polette geared me up with some groovy round frames that makes me feel like I’m back in the ’60s
Chopping wood is Therapeutic
Chopping wood is Therapeutic for most men. I guess it’s a primal thing, making lumber to keep fires going has been a ritual for thousands of years. It’s in our DNA as humans. There is a fascination with creating fire with most men.
Throwback to my old model-portfolio!
Lets go way back to the time when I was studying Multi-Media Design and Audio Visual Design in Amsterdam and I did some modeling on the side!
I’m telling all about it and show you a little bit of my old portfolio!
Run wild my child
Little feet are making a wonderful crunchy sound as they touch the layered floor of the forest. Every step feels different, little sticks, rocks, bones, grass, and mosses are all hiding under a think mixed layer of old crispy and fresh soft fallen leaves. Making every step an exciting surprise.
Our Mindful Babycare routine +WIN a Babycare Sheepskin
Day in, day out you get in this automated rhythm of taking care of your babe. And it’s basically the same every single time. Being a parent of a baby is hard. Once in a while, I noticed it happened to us again. We’ve been overwhelmed and exhausted for a period, so we’ve slipped into this survival mode. And never came out.
Winter garden overview
We collected all Our garden adventures, routines, and preparation for winter and in wintertime. In the wintertime, our garden is in hibernation. We spent most of our time indoors. Now that spring has come we shake up the ground and welcome all the new life that is bursting out of the garden!
Living with Syndrome of Raynaud
Coping Syndrome of Raynaud and tips on preventing an episode. This is a thing, It’s not a huge thing, its not life-threatening, but it is something I have to live with. Overall there is no real cure. But there are some tips and advice that could prevent another big attack on your limbs.
When you explore, you tend to get dirty! But that doesn’t mean we necessarily want to get clean… Because whenever we get a bit crunchy of all the playing, we just play some more in the tub!
Dance all the way to South Africa
WE ARE GOING TO SOUTH AFRICA! Whuuut!? And we had a little taste from the African culture to get us in the mood!

Shoot us mom!
Never let children pose… let them be themselves! whenever I’m shooting kids (my one or any kids for that matter)
I let them play. I have a strict NO POSING rule.But… Tiny baby girls turn in to big baby girls! And then that day came, the day when Miley (8yrs) Came up to me dressed a bit much over the top and Asked me “Mom? Can you shoot me? I’ve made everything ready!”
VIDEO – Getting My MOM Tatoo

VLOG: June 2018 – sunshine and blackberries
Month VLOG june 2018 – Get ready for another monthly overview of 2018
This throwback monthly overview we look back at a month filled with sunshine and day’s in the garden.
Getting a greener home
Energy friendly home
Living in a small home of only 50 square meters (=538 square feet) is one of the choices we’ve made to be more sustainable as a family. But because this is a home build in 1952, the Insolation was not what we wanted it to be. So in the last couple of years, we made some big steps in improving the insolation of our home.
Getting my first tattoo
At first, it was a rather simple idea… a thin straight line from my elbow to my wrist within the middle the letters that spelled the name of my one and only baby girl. My ultimate Mom tattoo. But. I was still breastfeeding. And everyone strongly advised against it back then. Now 7 years and two kids later I finaly did it! And YES I’m still breastfeeding!
Going to Amsterdam
Let's go to Amsterdam! We will go and have a drink at the docs. (at Pllek) I will hold you close until you will feel secure enough to explore a bit. I will drink my tea, with some honey and we will sit by the fire... And then you will run through the cafe like you own...

About this Curveball…
Uncertainties are scary yet exciting... Normally we like to share our highs, but we do hit some low's along the way, just like everybody else. So let's get real. So here is one huge bump in the road we are dealing with right now. The beginning of 2018 brought us...

Like every year we made our traditional “best wishes video” With a little sparcle!
Upcoming months will be finding glitter everywhere… but it was SO worth it!

Opinions… Choose: Frozen canals or blazing hot sunshine!?
Opinions matter…and everyone is always having theirs. What’s your opinion on that? What would you choose? What do you think? What would you prefer? Who do you support? But I can switch my opinions and preferences or how I feel about something just like that. Because a preference or opinion isn’t like a birthmark… you aren’t born with opinions or preferences. Nothing is set in stone, once you’ve developed an opinion about something, It’s not a lifelong decision. I’m allowed to change my opinions or preferences. That’s ok!
Searching for fairies
When the sun goes down and al the "good well behaved kids" go to bed so all the "good and responsible parents" can go and tidy up the house (and then Netflix) But let's be honest... that's just boring! So just once in a while, we just get our lanterns and put on our...

The educational system and us
This girl is a dreamer. Always with her head in the clouds and living in her own reality. Sometimes if you carefully watch you can see it in her eyes. That moment... Her checking out of our reality and stepping into her own. And I love that about her. In class,...

I’m a creative! And by being a self-proclaimed artist I think I earned the right to always wair whatever I feel like. I do have to attend a business meeting sometimes so I do have a “working mode” style that works for me.

They are experts in experiencing and enjoying the present… They know best! Stop overthinking everything and start living in the “NOW”
It feels like there was the “me” before I had kids and the “me” after. Not only that but after each and every birth of one of my baby girls I totally felt had to find myself all over again.
Climbing trees and family dynamics
The last couple of months were hectic, getting to know Quinn. Including her in our routines, or better said… making new routines. But now after those first five months, the dust has settled, and we all have got used to our new lives. It is a joy to see these three wonderful brave little girls exploring this world, climbing every tree, jumping from adventure to adventure!
So lets be honest… from the 38th week in pregnancy I am not the charmyest person around. I only fit my biggest maternity joggers and I can walk (or actually wobble) around for a max of 10 minutes before crashing. And then it hit me… this will probably be the last time ever being pregnant. So we decided to celebrate this moment in this photoshoot.
Gezocht: Zwangerschap Bubbel #Timeout
Tijd voor een kleine time-out! Dat elke zwangerschap anders is dat weten we allemaal wel… maar iets weten of ervaren is toch iets anders. Ik mag gerust zeggen dat ik deze derde zwangerschap ietsje (boel) heb onderschat. Been there, done that… doe ik er wel gewoon even bij. Uuuuh, nope. Dus niet.
