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!

New York Part 1 SLEEP
Posted on: 08 october 2014 Posted by: Madelon

It is still a wonderful city for me; The Big Apple. I love to go there again every year just to taste what it might feel like to live there. No not for life, but I would just be fine there for a few years. The city gives me loads of energy. Kilometres tracking by foot, you come through the different neighbourhoods with their totally different atmospheres.

New York Part 2 EAT
Posted on: 08 october 2014 Posted by: Madelon

What I love about New York is that there are so many restaurants where you can eat well. And especially so much where you will find Asian fusion dining. I often miss that in our own capital. This time we rolled, by chance, in the Asian hotspot of the moment; TAO (). Straight from the plane as it was on the corner of our Dream Hotel.

Best night out in Harlem, NYC
Posted on: 11 october 2013 Posted by: Madelon

New York my favorite city, which is by now no longer a secret. It radiates 24/7 and there is so much to do. Take for instance all shows on and off Broadway. So much to choose from, that it spins your head. But what do we think is the most fun event in The big Apple? I dare share our secret with you: Amateur Night At The Apollo Theatre.

New York Strip House
Posted on: 27 september 2013 Posted by: Anne-Marie

    As promised in my previous piece about the Crosby Street Hotel, a tip for a great steak restaurant in New York.   I’m really not such a meat lover but after a few nights of  having dinner in fushion cooking  restaurans  this was a welcome change.   On the advice of the hotel we went to the Strip House in Greenwich Village.

Crosby Street Hotel New York
Posted on: 20 september 2013 Posted by: Anne-Marie

Last week my husband and I visited my favorite city New York again. Every time we visit this city we stay in a different hotel. By now we’ve tried so many different hotels, we can make a really good comperison. This time we were looking for a hotel in the Soho district. We chose the Crosby Street Hotel.

Rooftop in NYC
Posted on: 11 july 2013 Posted by: Kitty

Rosemary’s in Greenwich is one of my all-time favourites. The restaurant is picturesque, with folding-doors, a ceiling illuminated by fairy lights and a huge rooftop terrace with a vegetable garden. Of course the visitors are just as fabulous as the restaurant. And on top of that there’s that divine, pure Italian food.

Saint Tropez in New York City
Posted on: 08 april 2013 Posted by: Madelon

Last year the Meatpacking District re-welcomed the highly esteemed restaurant Bagatelle New York. With locations in Los Angeles, St. Barth's, Las Vegas, the reopening of the flagship location was inevitable. You'll find yourself completely in the South of France with their Mediterranean menu and interior.

The James is one of our latest discovered favorite boutique hotels. Ideal for it's location in one of the nicest districts: Soho.
