I’ve always thought of Heerlen as a pretty dull place, and still think that way actually. But every now and then, a glimpse of coolness pops up in that grey area. One of those massive things that I simply DO adore about the city is their incredible possession of cool graffiti. I’ve seen lots of [...]
Don’t you just feel like we’ve been flooded with the amount of sushi restaurants in Eindhoven? It’s like a total out of control hype and on every corner, a new sushi guru is adapting the ‘all you can eat’ idea. But which one is the best sushi place? I’ve listed two of my favourites and [...]
Down at the Westside Stores in Eindhoven, there is one particular shop called MINT-TEA. Proud owners and best pals Ilze and Hedwig sat down with me in their lovely store to talk about this new concept of vintage, craft and tea in one store. Their future dreams and current cravings.

A GRAPHIC DESIGNER
Being a part-time online communications nerd and a freelance graphic designer is kind of a cool thing. Since you’re always on the look-out to know every corner of the internet. It keeps me edgy. And in between these non 9 to 5 jobs: I’m a real city girl, that enjoys 90’s hiphop, who’s madly in love with food (wake me up for sweet potato fries anytime), a blogger since ‘09 and known as a happy kid. Besides showcasing my work on this platform, I also love to talk about the stories behind my work. This website is a fun and fresh outlet for my creative ideas, quirky things I’m craving, and talks on style.
I celebrate creativity.

September 2014 is a special month for my city. In this month we celebrate 70 years of liberation of Eindhoven. And that freedom in 1944 has led to the open city of knowledge that Eindhoven is now. Yesterday, a hundred army vehicles drove through Eindhoven with a two hour break at the long Kennedylaan. I [...]
There’s just something to it, a bustling market, a friendly crowd, veggies, fish, meat, chocolate, waffles, fresh flowers, delicacies from many cultures, shoes, interior products and fashion. All of this comes together in the Albert Cuyp market in Amsterdam. I love this market very much for it’s fresh products in vegetables, nuts, superfoods and fresh [...]
This cute and engaged loveduo are going to tie the knot next year. (Remember my post of weddingbells and a happily ever after?) So in honour of this whole wedding bliss, they asked me to design their SAVE THE DATE card and to do a photo shoot together. How could I say no? Here it is!
