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!

Hotel de Schout in Denekamp/ Restaurant Oosth
Posted on: 22 december 2012 Posted by: Madelon

Totally unexpected we had a business meeting in hotel de Schout in Denekamp which lies in the east of Holland. What a great surprise this was for both of us. We were very hospitable retrieved by the Esther Hermelink, who runs the hotel with her boyfriend. And what a splendid and cosy interior. Seated at the open fire place we tasted a lot of their delicious small bites from their restaurant Oosth.

Anthropologie is such an inspiring shop. The atmosphere is basic and serene; it's really something else. So many lovely items to choose from, it makes one happy. I simply adore their collection of table ware. Currently they sell a line of china which is inspired by olden times, but with a modern twist.

Latest novel by Dutch author Arthur Japin
Posted on: 12 december 2012 Posted by: Kitty

The latest novel by Dutch author Arthur Japin is sure to cause some emotional reactions. Some of his books were translated, but I don’t know if or when that will happen in this case. The book is beautifully written though, heartrendingly cruel and striking at the same time. The vulnerable and touching tale about abuse is confronting.
