My BVA girlfriendsAs it is Christmas today, you probably have other things to do than look at my blogpost. Nevertheless, there is a post if you have a few minutes to spare. It is a post about friendship. Honestly, I wouldn’t know how to survive without friends, especially girlfriends. They are the salt of the earth. Of course I love my husband, his daughter, my mother, brother, etc etc. But friends are so special. I marvel at the fact there is no limit to the number of friends you can love. No matter how many new friends I gain, not a single bit of love is taken away from the others. Apparently our hearts are built that way. View Post

Weekend in Paris with SusanIt was so lovely to spend a weekend in Paris with Susan (Une femme d’un certain âge).  I had met Susan last year when she visited Amsterdam. That was a cold and rainy day and our plans to cruise through the canals of Amsterdam and have a picknick, were totally ruined. Nevertheless we had time to get to know each other. Susan is a wonderful woman with strength and power and a good sense of humour. When she planned her week in Paris this December, she contacted me to see whether I could join her. Yay, of course! Really the perks of blogging: meeting fellow bloggers. They are all so nice and my heart is big. I can love them all. View Post

Cream dress by SportmaxA cream dress by Sportmax. Yes, it is cream and not beige. There is a difference. I like this chic colour if there is a warm “undertone” in the cream, because then it is not too bad near my skin. Of course fuchsia is a far better colour for me, but when I see a beauty like this I cannot help myself. One BIG problem…. the dress is really too short. At least to my taste. The proportions aren’t right.  View Post

Poncho by Hope, brooch by the Citizen RosebudOne of those things… over the knee boots. Very “Pretty Woman”. Why? Because they are sexy. Why are they sexy? No idea. Most men find women in over the knee boots very attractive even though they cover up quite a bit. I have always liked them. Probably because there is a little bit of a common streak running through my character. Really only a little bit, but it is there and it sometimes wants needs to get out. Which resulted this time in knee high boots. (No, I do not say that every woman who buys over the knee boots is common.) View Post
