ALONE THIS VALENTINE? TREAT YOURSELF!

February 14, 2011

I wrote a post for all of you in a commited relationship to find the best romantic spots to celebrate Valentine’s Day, but I forgot the single human beings – like myself. If nobody is treating you with love, cards or gifts, you have to buy yourself something very tempting. That is: a Diptyque Paris candle. Pictured is their Valentine’s edition, but you can only buy it in New York ($ 78). But they have a lot of other scents to choose from.

MAY I INTRODUCE TO YOU…

November 7, 2010

… my MINI who takes me to all those hotspots.

This weekend I’ve been to Maastricht. As much as I like travelling and going abroad, I also love to drive my beloved MINI. That’s why it’s great to live in Europe, because every city is reachable by car. In february I went to Paris (but I parked my MINI in a save parking lot nearby Mamashelter because the French have their own opinion of ‘how-to-park-a-car’) and I like to go to London, but you have to drive on the other side of the road and that scares me. My MINI is born in Oxford so I need to go someday to visit ‘her’ homeland again. And then Berlin: 6,5 hours away. In Germany they don’t have a speed limit, so I can go as fast as I like. During the week I visit a lot of places in the Netherlands so if you see the pink mirrors, say hello! 🙂

This week it’s all about Maastricht on Petite Passport.


LIKE TO HAVE: LINGERIE WITH STARS ON IT

November 3, 2010


If you’ve been to Paris, you know that you’ll find a Princess Tam Tam on every street corner. I love their lingerie. Because, sorry big breasted girls, they sell pretty bras in small sizes. And that’s a hard thing to find in the Netherlands. I like their new serie with stars on it. And in summer I want to have every bikini. Check it out when you’re in Paris.
