Meeting blogger Nicolene in Amsterdam

Meeting blogger Nicolene in AmsterdamOne of the perks of blogging: you meet kindred souls. Like blogger Nicolene from South Africa. We got to “know” each other through Instagram (Stylecuratrix), when Nicolene showed great pieces from the H&M Conscious collection. I loved them and tried to track them down in Europe. So we mailed and we followed each other’s IG account and I got to like her. She is a laywer by profession and works full time. Which means her blog – Fifty Fabulous (Stylecuratrix) – sometimes has to suffer. View Post

Looking at vintage bags in Haarlem with Sylvia

Vintage bags in HaarlemThere is this lovely little shop selling vintage bags in Haarlem. Sylvia and I had a great time looking around there. In the past I have bought a few bags of the friendly lady owner, like the grey one in this post. It started with a hobby (of course) and now she buys and sells them. I can be in that shop for a long time, looking at all the gems. This time I came out with the bright green mini bag. View Post
