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!

Of course, I am a happy-go-lucky girl that just when it starts to get really cold, I fly off to Ghana where the temperature is 32 degrees. Nevertheless, I leave you guys behind a delicious warm Winter-Look for this week. How comfi those leather lined sweatpants are and they keep us so warm with the wind raging around your ears.

Zeggen vriendinnen ooit wel eens tegen je: “ wow, wat een mooie foundation heb jij op?” Met zulke vriendinnen heb je geen vijanden nodig. Laat je adviseren, het is gemakkelijker om een nieuwe foundation te vinden dan die nieuwe vriendin. We willen natuurlijk allemaal die flawless skin.

Wooden crates
Posted on: 29 january 2014 Posted by: Madelon

How cool it is to work with recyclable stuff in your interior. Earlier I showed you what you could achieve with building construction pallets. But how about working with wooden boxes and crates. Previously, my mother was always busy with painting and refurbishing old chicken crates and fortunately nowadays we think a lot more about fun solutions with used disposable stuff.

Flowing scroppino's and vita coco, the Dutch and famous... and as one of the lucky ones I was present at the closing day of the Amsterdam Fashion Week. There we sat, my dad and I, front row and right at the end, where the models pose, at Dennis Diem his show, he whom got famous for his corsets. Watching ...

A sensual en sensational collection of Dutch erotic stories
Posted on: 24 january 2014 Posted by: Mirjam

Elsbeth Etty did so to speak a hell of a job finding and publishing all these Dutch erotic stories. It’s kind of surprising how many well written and exiting ones she found in The Hagues Royal Library. There is so much to tell about this collection of literary works, but let’s stick to this one: it will change your way of.

A famous psychologist writes about love and loneliness
Posted on: 24 january 2014 Posted by: Mirjam

This book is more than one can expect from a famous (Belgian) professor in Psychology. It is beautiffully written and full of wisdom, nice stories and funny examples of nowadays lovelife. No wonder it was a bestseller, no wonder it still is. The most interesting question in this writing is: have we ...

Amsterdam Fashion Week-1
Posted on: 24 january 2014 Posted by: Berine

23 January, THE openings day of Amsterdam Fashion Week. A world famous event that bloggers simply cannot miss out on. Therefore, I was lucky enough to have been seated on the second row at Aziz Bekkaoui his show. It was already Aziz his twentieth time parading down the catwalk at AMF. With his ‘Images ...

what to expect in fashion for spring-summer 2014
Posted on: 24 january 2014 Posted by: Madelon

In Milan, New york and London, they have to wait until next month for their Fashion weeks, but in Paris and Amsterdam they are already in full swing. Our guest blogger Berine (who also happens to be my daughter) will get back on the one in Amsterdam more extensively, the coming days. Unfortunately ...

ceramic with emotion
Posted on: 22 january 2014 Posted by: Madelon

Perhaps my Dutch followers sometimes recognize blogs on this site that they have seen before in the magazine that I write for. However, the space I get there for each item is actually to small, if you want to thoroughly expose something. Therefore, I empathize with detailed information and photos on my site, of everything I find beautiful and precious in my life.

heh big spender
Posted on: 20 january 2014 Posted by: Madelon

Actually, I almost never wear nail polish on my hands in wintertime. In one way or another, I think it does not fit with my 'white' hands and it feels to ‘ladylike’. But waiting on a fine treatment in Soap Treatment store (which when I have the right before -and-after photos in my possession, ...

What will we have for dinner tonight? Mustard-salmon-spinach-soup!
Posted on: 16 january 2014 Posted by: Madelon

  Almost every day I try to conjure something new in my kitchen. This works out fine most of the time, but occasionally there is also a horrible dish. This may be due to the recipe, but also because I 've been using red peppers far too generous. That means you need to neutralize the whole thing with quite a lot of yogurt or coconut milk to calm down the blisters on your tongue.

Venezuela part 3
Posted on: 15 january 2014 Posted by: Madelon

An eight-hour trip in a van took us through different landscapes of the high Andes to Merida, one of the main cultural centres of the country. The excellent location in the mountains, mild daytime temperatures and cool nights, parks, lagoons, the old university, monumental buildings from the colonial ...

It's winter my dear
Posted on: 13 january 2014 Posted by: Berine

Ok well in The Netherlands it hasn't really been what one can call a strong winter... No snow, frozen canals, ten layers clothing, moonboots and so forth, but the rain and the wind great me in the mornings (I really do rather have snow). Anyways, walking to school in the morning and riding ...

Venezuela part 2
Posted on: 13 january 2014 Posted by: Madelon

After Caracas we flew to Maracaibo, known for the largest lake in South America and the natural spectacle of lightning above the lake in the colder months. Long ago I lived on this lake on a Shell campus. My old school, house, the pool where I learned to swim, the club where all the festivities and events took place, I found it all again.

Venezuela part 1
Posted on: 11 january 2014 Posted by: Madelon

Given the huge fuss about the murdered Miss Venezuela last week, I immediately feel compelled to blog about the beautiful country where I have lived quite comfortably in my childhood with my parents. Last Christmas I took our family on a quest for that part of my childhood. Before our departure, I ...

What a box!
Posted on: 09 january 2014 Posted by: Madelon

  Like many other girls, I'm a real crow. Meanwhile in my life I have collected a lot of jewellery junk, here and abroad. It's a pretty clever achievement (my husband definitely thinks otherwise) how I repeatedly set my eye onto something indispensable over and over again. Just take my necklaces.

Happy in my Lolita dress
Posted on: 08 january 2014 Posted by: Madelon

When booking a holiday in which you need to live from your suitcase, it is always pondering what you will wear. For a control freak like me, it requires advanced organisation and improvisation. For us these kind of trips usually take place to tropical countries, therefore the clothes we take with us need to be of a light material.

Christmas in the desert
Posted on: 07 january 2014 Posted by: Anne-Marie

Last Christmas we spend a few days at the legendary Liwa Desert, one of the largest uninterrupted sand deserts in the world. Perhaps not the first thing that pops up into your mind for a Christmas holiday, but an absolutley wonderful destination. Recline by the plunge pool outside your own private ...
