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!

Dreaming of springtime…
Posted on: 28 january 2013 Posted by: Kitty

Baby, it’s cold outside! Snow and temperatures below zero ask for warm sweaters and (fake) furs. Springtime seems far away, except for fashion. Shops get rid of their winter collections, to make room for pastels in graphic and flowery prints. Like this sunny dress from Erdem’s 2013 spring/summer collection.

Afternoon tea with love
Posted on: 28 january 2013 Posted by: Madelon

A real British afternoon tea is one of my favorite things to do during my visits in the UK. In Amsterdam we have a few spots of the Bakkeryshop, but the one at the Zeedijk is my favorite because of the atmosphere and the radiation. Their breakfasts and lunches are utterly delicious. You can ...

Zefi Walton Street London
Posted on: 23 january 2013 Posted by: Kitty

To me one of the nicest and most attractive streets of London is Walton Street. It's where you can find Zefi, a great place for lunch. Delicious freshly made salads and meals with an Italian and North African touch... A girl just doesn't know what to choose! They also serve wonderful shakes of fruits and veggies - pressed while you're waiting, of course ­ and yummy homemade pies.

Vintage fur
Posted on: 22 january 2013 Posted by: Madelon

Who would think of something like this: while your child is enjoying a haircut in the shop, you can nose around between many vintage fur coats from the Eastern Bloc, knitted dresses, capes and vintage kids clothes. Each time we are there we can not resist one of their fur coats. Now with the snow a ...

Little black jacket
Posted on: 08 january 2013 Posted by: Madelon

The black leather jacket will always be a musthave in your wardrobe. You can combine it with a sturdy outfit or wear it over feminine basics. These ones are from Maje, Rika and Don Vanquisher (this last one Via Raak Amsterdam)

The pot calls the cattle black
Posted on: 07 january 2013 Posted by: Madelon

How handy it is to have neat closets in your loo. This way you are able to hide all that is needed, like storage and cleaning equipment. Personally I would use American Barn-wood for these closets or have them painted glossy black.

Lyppens jewelery
Posted on: 07 january 2013 Posted by: Madelon

This is for sure the best 'candy' store for little and big girls. For more then 50 years jewelry store lyppens is situated in the heart of Amsterdam. A small narrow building which is crowded with customers every hour of the day. In all these years they did not change anything of the interior and that makes this very full store very approachable.

De Laatste Kruimel
Posted on: 07 january 2013 Posted by: Madelon

On the right side of the nicest jewelry shop in the heart of Amsterdam, Lyppens ( see our header '' ), you will find the delicious bakery, breakfast and lunch place . The counter is made of construction pallets and the stools of wooden crates. Everything is homemade and therefore fresh. The carrot cake and zucchini pie with lemon curd are a true treat.
