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!

My first introduction with fascinating Istanbul (now 4 years ago) was immediately a special and eventful one; 3 days of traversing the whole city with my Turkish friend Mufide. Since then, I have returned several times, many impressions gained. But what keeps on fascinating me is the atmosphere and above all the specials odors of the Grand Bazar.

Last april my brother, sister and I took my mum on a surprise trip to Istanbul for her 70th birthday. I had been there a few times, but for my mother it was her first experience.

Sequel Istanbul

Of course you have to visit the Grand Bazaar while in Istanbul. If you take the entrance at the Nuruosmaniye Mosque, you'll stand right in front of all the leather wear.   My favorite address for leather coats and jackets is: KOC   For leather bags and shoes: TONJI Kurkculer Carsisi ...

If you want to escape the hectic and have seen all the famous sights of the city, take a ferry or a private taxi boat to the Prince Islands. A marvelous trip takes you to these isles 20 km outside the coast, direction the Asian Sea. A lot of wealthy Istanbul residents own houses on the islands. That's why it is a lot busier in summertime then during winter.
