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!

Belgian touch
Posted on: 27 february 2013 Posted by: Kitty

The elegant and original jewellery by Belgian ladies Wouters & Hendrix is gorgeous. Even The Netherlands fell for their designs and I know exactly why. Their presentation is one of a kind: designs displayed in cigar-boxes and on old pictures of former top-models. Especially for Belgian (bag)label Delvaux, Wouters & Hendrix designed a golden bracelet named ‘Embrace’.

Mood board
Posted on: 22 february 2013 Posted by: Kitty

Every creative mind needs a mood board. It’s so inspiring to collect one's ideas on a neat board. You can use your mood board in many different ways. I once had an antique frame covered with cork. It's been hanging in my kitchen for ages, peppered with dear pictures of family and friends; decorative and functional at the same time.

Green -­ greener - greenest
Posted on: 21 february 2013 Posted by: Kitty

What to say bout green, that most refined of colours? It rejuvenates, brightens up and flatters! And all those lovely shades of green make perfect combos. Green will be all the rage this upcoming spring... I can't wait!

Green

The color green stands for peace and hope. But is also the symbol of environmental movements. That is why in our society green is an important color. And, coincidentally, I do love clothes in all shades of green.   Jacket: Liu-Jo jeans Blouse: Zara Trousers: Current Elliott

Warm feet
Posted on: 15 february 2013 Posted by: Madelon

For years stylists, trend watchers, personal shoppers and other self-respected fashion guru's try to ban the Uggs to the pyre. And every year, as soon as it gets colder, you see the streets filled with these 'monstrous' Uggs in all sorts and colors. And unfortunately I can't do without them either, with my everlasting frozen feet.

Mademoiselle
Posted on: 15 february 2013 Posted by: Kitty

Moschino gave a fashionable twist to the Philippe Starck chairs by Kartell, resulting in the Mademoiselle. This furniture is like a breeze of fresh air and very feminine. It provides Kartell’s business line with a subtle touch.



Zebra
Posted on: 15 february 2013 Posted by: Madelon

Like my true love that I feel for India, I feel the same for a lot of African countries.  You can see that in my interiors. I always tend to drag along suitcases of local fabrics, (antique) jewelry and special sculptures. And I have an affection for the zebra. He belongs to the family of Equidae, like horses and donkeys, only the zebra is not to be tamed.

The red shoes

Dancing the night away at Valentines' night with your lover on these irresistible red shoes. All studies have repeatedly shown that men really get excited most by the color red on a woman. But watch out with little red dancing shoes....they take you places you might not want to end up! Shoes by Oscar de la Renta.

Classic beauty: Liberty
Posted on: 12 february 2013 Posted by: Kitty

I’m so glad I can still dress my little girl in those lovely flowery designs by Liberty London – without her making too much of a fuss about it! Founded in 1875, Liberty is still a popular brand. This must have something to do with the connection with famous designers and labels like Vivienne Westwood, Manolo Blahnik and Aigle.

Stock days Arnhem
Posted on: 01 february 2013 Posted by: Kitty

With the Amsterdam Fashion Week absorbing everybody’s attention you'd almost forget there’s more fashion going on in winter white Holland. I for one have every intention of visiting the Arnhem Stock Days (January 31-February 3). Located in the east of The Netherlands, not far from the German ...
