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!

Autumn Fashion
Posted on: 25 september 2013 Posted by: Madelon

As promised I would get back on the outfit that we had worn during the Raak Amsterdam High Wine fashion show. It was a pleasure to see the other women getting all excited with my skirt and the sleeveless cardigan that Pom worn, both bought at Raak. Many of them informed Jos of Raak if their size was still available at the store.

lucky shot
Posted on: 22 september 2013 Posted by: Kitty

I discovered the Belgian brand Essentiel Antwerp a few years ago, when I lived in Brussels. And although I don's like every collection, there are still some good items for me between. Two weeks ago, I began to flow a bit, when I saw this fabulous bag. Just the right beautiful red color I was looking for, made from nice and soft leather, and a very nice price.

This outfit is for the lucky ones who will still go on holidays to a sunny country this after-season.
Orange is a warm colour that makes your skin look more tanned. The dress accentuates your hips and buttocks and sits loosely around the tummy.

Today my eldest daughter and I were guests at the exclusive fashion show of Jos van Raak. This time Jos welcomed everyone at the Conservatorium Hotel for an autumn High Wine.

Once in a while you will see me wearing a dress, either a long or a short one, but most happy I do feel wearing trousers. Especially ones you are able to wear both casual as dressy. Take for instance these pants that I have bought this summer at Raak Amsterdam. It wears as pajamas’. Such an easy and comfortable fit.

a copper-bottomed plan

When thinking about using brass in your interior, you immediately picture grannie-style interiors with loads of copper kettles and pans or overcrowded pancake restaurants. This is absolutely not necessary. The usage of brass is very trendy nowadays in interior designing.   At home I had one large wall painted with brass looking surfaces, that makes you think the are large copper tiles.

The Netherlands keeps us captivated with tropical temperatures. With my partly Indonisian blood pumping through my vains, you make me more than happy with that.   That means we are able to carry on wearing our summer outfits. And with these pants with tropical print, I imagine myself on a tropical island.
