Bathing suit 1MSpring is here again and many of us will go to the stores with a dangerous purpose: finding a swim suit. With our white bodies in these dreadful fitting rooms. Being over 40 makes matters worse.

The text you are about to read is a fun article which was sent to me by a friend. I have no idea who wrote it but it killed me laughing. I have published it twice before, but because it is so hilarious, I am posting it again. For those faithful readers who have read it before, sorry… but I hope it will make you laugh once more. Illustrations were kindly made by Anja (see her travel blog Curly Traveller). View Post

Behind the scenes of a photo shootOh guys, this was fun !!! Not only did I get the chance to take pictures behind the scenes of a photo shoot, I was in the photo shoot myself. I love these kind of things but I was never asked as a model. Probably because I haven’t got a face or body according to the golden ratio. Great joy when in December I found the invitation in my mail: “Would you like to participate in a photo shoot for spring fashion in a women’s magazine?” (For the Dutch: the magazine is Margriet.) Of course I would! No problem, just say where and when. The stylist (Inge Holkenborg) who arranged this (in the orange cardigan photo above), had no idea who suggested me to the magazine. When I received all the details I was pleasantly surprised to see that my friend Misja was one of the other models (see Misja’s street style blog). I assumed she had put my name forward but no, she didn’t even know I was going to be there. View Post
