About me

So happy that you have found my website!

 

On Lifestyle2go.com I share through weekly blogs, all my personal findings in the field of Lifestyle, which are life-enriching.

 

For years people have been picking my brains for tips on travel, fashion, interior, recipes, beauty, events and much more.

 

My creativity is partly due to the many worldwide travels I've made and the different countries and places where I have lived as a child with my parents, alone and with my family.

 

My work as an interior designer is something I have inherited from home. My mother was always busy with decorating and changing our interior. Subconsciously, I took the habit on as a child and made sure my room was always contemporary with a personal warm touch.

 

Since then I have assisted many projects, or with complete renovations, or with the intervention of the whole device with my company: MOS interiors.

 

As an interior specialist and editor of a lifestyle magazine, all wonderful places in the world that I have visited as well as the many people I meet on my path, have inspired me in my sense of color, space and insights into trends.

 

I am also very privileged to be allowed to live in an inspiring piece of world heritage: our own capital 'Amsterdam'. 

 

Let me and my guest bloggers take you to the beautiful things in life and especially do not hesitate to provide us with your comments at the bottom of each blog-posts or on the Facebook page of Lifestyle2go.

 

Enjoy reading and viewing with pleasure!

Madelon Oudshoorn Spaargaren
Date of birth:   June 20, 1964
Place of residence: Amsterdam
Married to: PB
Children: Folkert (20), Jurriaan (19), Pomeline (18), Berine (16)
Education: “I spent most of my childhood abroad, because of my father’s job. Afterward my mother and I lived with my stepfather in Wassenaar and Driebergen, where I finished high school. I left for the United States for a year to work as an au pair. Back home I took an extended course in secretarial work and later on tried to study English and Commercial Economy in Amsterdam.”
Work: “As an au pair I learned to be a responsible person. That served me well, as from my 18th onward I had to fend for myself. As a result I had numerous jobs in my student years. In addition I played a very active part in my sorority, causing my studies to sometimes disappear into the background. I worked as a temp doing secretarial jobs and working at trade fairs, where I sold cars and any number of products. I was also a stewardess at Martinair and an intermediary at various employment agencies. In the late nineties my sister in law and I took over an Amsterdam-based casting agency where I worked for years. Due to health problems I decided to slow it down for a while and focus primarily on my family. In 2009 I started my own business, MOS Interiors (www.mosinteriors.nl).”
Life: “When I was young I lived abroad. Because of my study I ended up in Amsterdam and it immediately felt like home to me. My husband likes the country, so we lived in small towns and villages for quite a few years. But I’m glad to be back in good old Amsterdam. All in all I moved over thirty times. My last child left home to go studying last summer and the house feels empty now. I love a full house. Being together as a family on vacation or sharing a meal with my husband and children makes me very happy.”
Also: “I’m an eldest child and that turned me into kind of a busybody. My friends tease me by calling me ‘Mother Superior’. I travelled a lot, care for details and have developed a strong intuition. I suppose this is why people always ask me for tips and advice. Lifestyle2go.com expresses everything I have learned, which I so much like to share.”
Motto: Love all, trust few, paddle your own canoe.
