Leather jogging trousers

These leather jogging trousers have been in my wardrobe for a few years now. I don't wear them much, which is a shame really as they make quite an impact and are pretty cool (as long as I cover my butt). Wearing pumps with them creates the image I like most; see the...

High tea at the Amstel Hotel

Yes, I know the title of this blog post is "High tea at the Amstel Hotel". And when you see Marijke and me like this, we don't exactly look like the clientele suitable for the Amstel (5 star) Hotel. They let anybody in these days  😆  Our group of friends, the BVA...

My blog is strictly a hobby. Nothing commercial on it as I haven't got the time nor need to deal with advertisements or sponsors. With this post I am going to make one exception. For my husband Ron, the man who takes the best pictures of me for this blog and finds the...
