Show your style - Doutzen Kroes - Stijlmeisje

It’s hard to deny her presence in the streets of Amsterdam nowadays… and probably also in the rest of the world. Talkin’ (of course) about Doutzen Kroes. H&M, Mercedes Benz, L’Oreal and Calvin Klein are just a few of the big names with which miss Kroes works. Not to forget all the other things she […]

Sealed with a ring

Engagement ring - Stijlmeisje wedding

Marilyn Monroe once sang in the film Gentlemen Prefer Blondes: “Diamonds Are a Girl’s Best Friend”. Not a sentence that really applies to me. I almost never wear jewelry, except for a watch and a necklace. When I was a teenager this was quite different though. I wore two earrings in each ear, had a […]

At home photo muse..

Nederlands Fotomuseum - Stijlmeisje

I like photography… a lot. And since I’m myself not the best photgrapher (I do try my best), I like searching for, stumbling upon and collecting beautiful photos. One of the best places in the Netherlands for getting to see very swell photograpy is the Nederlands Fotomuseum, located in Rotterdam (at one of the most […]

tennis sport wimbledon - Stijlmeisje

The oldest and most prestigious tennis tournament in the world, Wimbledon, starts again next week. It’s one of the 4 Grand Slam tournaments, next to the Australian Open, the French Open (better known as Roland Garros) and the US Open. And the best feature is that it’s the only Grand Slam still played on grass. As […]

Keecie bags

Keecie - bags - Stijlmeisje

I’m the happy owner of a beautiful (and my favourite) black tote. But once in a while I’m in the mood for something more colourful… like the bags of Keecie. Klaartje de Hartog is the radiant person behind the Dutch bag label Keecie, which she started in 2009. The many different colours and vintage reference combined with […]

That dress

That dress - wedding dress - Stijlmeisje

Since I’m getting married in less than 3 months (!) you understand that one my most important quests of the moment is finding THAT dress! And… wow… it’s amazing how many hideous dresses you’ll get to see during such a quest. From over the top princess dresses to dresses in the most incredible colours (yes I’m quite traditional […]

3 must visit expositions - Stijlmeisje

Three expositions, just opened last week, which are more than worth the visit! 1) Swinging Sixties London Photography Museum Foam presents Swinging Sixties London – Photography in the Capital of Cool. The presentation let us see all of the remarkable developments in and around photography during the sixties: fashion, celebrities, music, magazines, design and social […]

SLA cookbook

SLA cookbook - Stijlmeisje

In 2013 the first SLA restaurant opened it’s doors (check my visit to SLA a year ago here). A place where you can find salads, juices, soups and snacks so full of flavour ‘you’d forget they’re hearty and healthy‘. And now, two years later, there are already 5 SLA restaurants on different locations in Amsterdam and… […]

My Style Tour #4

My Style Tour - Stijlmeisje

And there it is… the last and 4th video of the #MyStyleTour series in collaboration with Philips! In this final video you see me back in Amsterdam and I have to say it took me some time to get used to my ‘normal’ life again in the Netherlands… But my time in Cape Town gave me so much inspiration! The healthy lifestyle in particular […]

5 x Longboard Love

Longboard Love - Skateboard - Stijlmeisje

Since the beginning of this year I’m making my first skateboard ‘steps’. Cruisin’ through Cape Town was not a bad way to learn some skateboard skills… And now back in Amsterdam, I’m trying to keep these skills up and become an even beter skater on my longboard! Maybe it doesn’t look all slick and pretty […]

Babylonstoren

Babylonstoren - South Africa - Travel - Stiijlmeisje

I’m already two months back from my stay in Cape Town, but there are still some gems which I want to share with you. One of these gems is winelands farm Babylonstoren. Situated just a 45-minute drive east of Cape Town (between Franschhoek and Paarl), you will find this Old Dutch farm. Babylonstoren – named […]

Mumu Chocolate Vit..

Mumu - Chocolate Vitamins - Stijlmeisje

Exactly a year ago Murat and Laura began making their so-called Mumu’s – big chocolates made from raw chocolate without lactose and added sugars. The Mumu’s are filled with dates, vegan whipped cream with espresso, nuts or caramel-cream and are full of flavor. Creamy and sweet but not too sweet. And craft some first. Every […]
