Comme Une Reine

Patience, patience. Entering March, it’s only a few weeks until spring! Meanwhile, the sun-splashed main porch of the Petit Palais serves as our shimmering golden backdrop today. Designed by Charles Girault, the gorgeous building in Beaux-Arts style shares quite some similarities with the Grand Palais across the street. Show Me More…

Warm Thoughts

In the midst of all the corona madness, after winter winds and snow besieged the city for two weeks, we suddenly felt some warm pre-spring sun rays on our faces. Staying home and holding onto warm thoughts is what got us through the season, besides one very brief walk a day to get some fresh air. Show Me More…

Better By Your Side

How long will the madness proceed? Social distancing, restrictions, and never ending lockdowns. Moreover, with a newly introduced curfew at 9PM in the Netherlands, we find ourselves with even less time to fit our daily lives into. Luckily, January and February are usually the least busy, and most dull months of the year for us. Show Me More…

Unrest

A new year has fallen upon us and our optimistic spirit is met with challenge right away. The fresh start full of hope for change has turned out to be just an extension of the lockdown we are so tired of. Comfortable athleisure wear has become our daily default outfit, as we are still mostly confined to our homes. An invigorating stroll around the city does wonders these days. Show Me More…

Winter Beach

There is nothing more invigorating than winter beach walks. A stroll through the dried reed banks down to the shore during daytime can be so heartening, even if its just a short walk to catch a fresh breeze. While temperatures are still mild, a layered look with woven and knitted garments will suffice. Show Me More…

Quiet Houses

Winter winds whirl around the city of Amsterdam, making us long for a December trip to a sunny destination. Yet, we appreciate the cozy atmosphere of our picturesque city during this season even more. The bizarre circumstances we all face today, make traveling quite a challenge. Show Me More…

Colibria

Since man set sail to discover worlds overseas, the trinkets and finery brought back from other cultures blended into modern trends. The bohemian look first developed in the 1960’s, aging very well while evolving into a myriad of sub-genre fashions. Show Me More…

Azul Oro

The Algarve in Portugal is often heralded as the undisputed paradise of the country. Charming villages and magical rocky bays scatter the gorgeous coastline. Reaching the cliffs around the shore of Portimão, a romantic walk brings us past areas of untouched nature, along craggy winding pathways up the hills. Show Me More…

Paradiso

Art Deco vibes all the way at @paradiso_ibiza and we are loving it. This lovely enclave drenched in a candy floss pink was modelled after the iconic hotels from the Old Miami Beach Historic District, more often referred to as the Miami Art Deco District. Show Me More…
