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!

They were an instant hit at the annual designer exhibition Salone del Mobile in Milan: the outdoor furniture made out of recycled materials by Dedon. It’s never easy to find practical and elegant outdoor furniture, but ...

‘Skulls and vintage’ for the ‘older’ girl
Posted on: 29 july 2013 Posted by: Madelon

Each time I am in doubt if at my age you can follow every fashion trend, like with the skulls; they seem to rule the fashion industry for years. But because of the fact that I secretly, in my own way, adore many of the trends I search for combinations to combine ‘young’ and ‘old(er)’.

sturdy beach dudes

The popular surf brand Sundek is once again catching a big wave so to speak, since they had lost it’s popularity back in the nineteens’. The brand, which started in 1970 has returned with new designs with their two-ply nylon board shorts with its trademark multi-strip across the seat. Of course this summer they have the fluorescent colors for all the sturdy boys (and girls) and ours.

kitchen fun
Posted on: 25 july 2013 Posted by: Madelon

Because my style is far from standard and I just love to give every room and home a different atmosphere, I try to give a kitchen something idiosyncratic as well. Of course beautifully done, all those kitchens from famous designers, but very recognizable and impersonal. One way to give your kitchen that special touch is to use wall paper or wall stickers.

High summer High heels
Posted on: 24 july 2013 Posted by: Kitty


This summer shows lots of variation in wedges. That's totally cool with us, since nothing upgrades tiny shorts or a cute summer-dress better than this smashing pair of killer summer-heels. Wedges are so much easier to walk on, no more dead toes and painful and unflattering red welts or (even worse) blisters.

Bag in Black
Posted on: 22 july 2013 Posted by: Kitty


I don’t know what it is about women and their bags; no happy life without them, I’d almost say. I own a closet full of bags myself, ranging from It-bags to pieces by Zara and cute ones from the Valbonne market. But my absolute favourite is the black bag. I happen to bump into one of those must haves regularly.

lifestyle2go goes france
Posted on: 18 july 2013 Posted by: Madelon

Your Lifestyle2go team was in France for some unforgettable time to spend together with our husbands. In peace we had the time to discus the future of Lifestyle2go, thinks of new topics to blog about and make plans to surprise you with the coming year. And of course apart from work, enjoy the sun, typical French settings and good food.

Prints and colour
Posted on: 15 july 2013 Posted by: Berine

For an evening pizza eating in Valbonne, South of France, you don’t want to dress up too chique nor too simple. Something in between, like a nice blouse, comfortable trousers ( so that the pizza and ice cream as dessert will still fit in;) ) and wedges. Laidback, but thought about. Not too relaxed a la Ibiza, but still with a classy French hint.

They are sworn friends from high school. And what makes it so special is the fact that I have been to school with the parents of Maxime, Poms friend. It gives a special bonding. This summer you will find fashion blog posts from our younger girls regularly.   MAXIME: Shorts       ...

Ghanaian fabrics
Posted on: 12 july 2013 Posted by: Madelon

As promised a while ago, I would show you regularly what I have made from the fabrics that I brought back from my travels to Ghana. One of the most beautiful fabrics in Ghana is the brand fabricated in the Netherlands: Vlisco. This company is settled in the south of the Netherlands in Helmond and has a beautiful office just outside of Amsterdam as well.

In summertime I prefer wearing wider clothes made from flexible soft fabrics. In the heat wearing tight clothes is not an option for me. Unfortunately I do not have the age ( nor the legs!) anymore to wear the trendy hot pants/shorts. So I always wear long dresses and skirts and wide pants.   Dress ...

customized dream shirt
Posted on: 05 july 2013 Posted by: Madelon

Is it difficult for your love to find the right shirt in stores? Is he always looking for a high collar with two buttons or with a double cuff, or rather a button down in a flower print? I tend to be always looking for the perfect white women shirt with a grand collar. Well stop searching everyone.

Teenage fashionista’s
Posted on: 05 july 2013 Posted by: Anne-Marie

My daughter loves fashion. Of course this mummy loves to shop with her dearest daughter but there are (budget) boundaries. In the Netherlands the sale has already started a few weeks ago, but people like us, who live close to the Belgium border, prefer to wait for the “solden”. This is the offical sales period in Belgium.
