Friends…. salt of the earth

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

A weekend in Paris with Susan

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

Flower dress from the Max Mara outlet

Flower dress by Max MaraYou are going to be so bored with me in dresses haha. This flower dress is another score from the Max Mara outlet. It is a very peculiar dress. The front is straight like a sheath dress and the back is all big and pleated. Furtermore the side seams aren’t going straight down but move to the front.  View Post

Cream dress by Sportmax

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
