Ship Ahoy!

Sperry Top Sider - Stijlmeisje

One of the weird ‘fashion’ phenomena in life is the boat shoe, that is… according to me. Before the 1980’s they were used by sailors, just as the name suggests.* The pattern on the back of the shoe provides grip on a wet deck and the leather repels water. But it’s since the 80’s that […]

Fra Lippo Lippie

Fra Lippo Lippie - Stijlmeisje

Sometimes you bump into products, which at first sight don’t look that special, but are beautiful in their simplicity AND because of the story behind the product. One of these things is Fra Lippo Lippie lip balm. Yep… a lip balm… A couple of years ago Monie Jagroe was tired of her office job. So […]

Talkin’ Glut..

Talkin' Gluten - Food - Stijlmeisje

When living in Cape Town for a while you’ll notice that all of Cape Town residents are pursuing a healthy lifestyle. That is… most of them. It’s also not a really difficult thing to pursue; sport facilities are cheap, sport possibilities are uncountable and the food culture is in general very healthy. The food bars […]

Con amore

In cucina con amore - Sophia Loren - Stijlmeisje

Maybe you already noticed I have a soft spot for all things Italian, and one of these things is Sophia Loren. I devoted an article to this special donna earlier but now there is a fresh reason for a new mention… That is: her famous recipe book In cucina con amore is being published again! The first edition […]

Once in a while it’s time for some good reflection… And in the case of my website (it now already celebrates it’s 2,5 year anniversary!) it’s also a good thing to ask you, yeah I mean you, what I can do better/different/less to improve the website. In the end it’s most important that the people who […]

Back to reality

Cape Town - MyStyleTour - Stijlmeisje

And that was the end… the end of my 3 month stay in Cape Town…. Wow, that went fast. Too fast! Last Saturday I arrived back on Dutch ground and well, that was a cold encounter. Miss the beautiful weather, nature and people I’ve met already. My 3 months in Cape Town consisted of a […]

First Dutch Coache..

Yay, Hollands first Coachella is… an April fool’s joke. Sorry guys, had to do it.

The official name of the festival is ‘Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival’ and it […]
