Life is to be celebrated, so the Lady & I made full use of our working day together playing absent and having a Ladies luncheon to celebrate our 44th Dutch Home Anniversary.
Realising our journey could have been substancially different, we are grateful for what has been granted to us, yet always curious over how it would have been...
Anyway, Cheers to Dad & @mamaflojo
for your authentic, adventurous, free spirited, crossing borders way of life, back in the early days. 🍾🥂💕
These suits are serving sophistication!
How about this for some powerful monday mood Ankara suit inspiration?!

So there was Uganda, Tanzania, Zambia, Malawi, Madagascar, Kenia, Ethiopia, Ghana, Eswatini, Botswana, Namibia and many more alluring African destinations on my miniworld tour the past few days at the #vakantiebeurs
(The biggest Annual Dutch Travel Expo). 🌍😘 And I was pleasantly surprised by the tremendous travel options of beautiful (new) destinations in Africa.
I am so looking forward to the follow-up talks with the various agencies in the tourism industry about fully-fledged sustainable tourism, which also benefits the local population / companies and bedazzles the traveller.
One thing is for sure. Africa is booming on so many levels and tourism is one of them.
Thanks so much for the invitation, talks & the great hospitality at the Africa Pavilion. Untill we meet on African Soil again... 🌱
Attract what you expect. Reflect what you desire. Become what you respect. Mirror what you admire
It is important that we make time for a little self-reflection once in a while.
Time spent in self-reflection is never wasted, it is an intimate date with yourself.
“Your vision will become clear only when you look into your own heart.
Who looks outside, dreams; who looks inside, awakes...” Carl Jung *
I experienced some awakening of myself recently, for which I am so grateful.
It reminds me where I came from and shows me where I need to go to.
2019 is beginning to unfold its magnificent pages and I am so looking forward to it’s 12 new chapters! Hope your first week has been fruitful as well.
We have just stepped into 2019 as a newly fitted dress, still finetuning what needs to be adjusted in our lifes. Hoping 2019 will all soon feel like your most Fabulous dress ever, one that makes you feel like the best you have ever worn.
Today I feel it is appropiate to flash back on what was my personal highlight in terms of handmade design of 2018.
Designing 1 of 3 bridal dresses with my loving mom @mamaflojo
, Senior Tailor at Lady Africa inspiration, teacher, mentor and my rock!
During this designing journey we got to spend so much time together and we have gotten to know eachother on a whole other level. Together with Master Tailor Leo she spent hours and hours sewing and altering untill we all felt it was👌🏾. Modern flowy Fabric mixed with antique lace. Representing something old yet something New. Truely grateful for these precious moments together and proud to have entered a new phase in life, in a #ladyafrica #custommade
by the loving hands of my dear mom!
I take this with me not only in 2019 but for ever and ever!

The year of joy, transitions, tears, (re)connections, life lessons, experiences, trips, weddings, love, strong family bonds & fantastic (new) friendships, valueable business relations, creating, developing, tweaking, designing, meeting passionate people and so much more.
2019 so glad to welcome you with open arms, more than ready to take you on!!! 💪🏾
Happy New Years Eve beloveds, life’s too short, make it count!
And may the New Year bring you everything you wish for and then some! 🖤🍾🥂💕🌟🍀🎉
There were far more glorious moments than the #topnine2018
shown here. Some highs did not make it to the gram simply because we intensly devoured every second of it without capturing them.
2018 had some bizar plot twists, most magical, some painfully unreal to all happen in one year, but still we rise.
And for all the lessons learned over the past year, we come back stronger, healthiest & wiser!
Grateful for all magnificent moments we shared with all of you last year, & looking forward to more of that awesomeness in 2019!
Untill next beloveds!
Wanted to make a perfect poetic post about how The Christmas aftermath leaves you with this somewhat melancholic ‘End of year*meets*coming full circle’ feeling.
Then got totally distracted by the sheer awesomeness of our New Brass Ring Collection!
Beloveds, in light of The Christmas spirit we would like to express our grattitude. Your love & support has been overwhelming and has meant so much to us! Meeting and connecting with all of you on and offline was a joy!
Throughout our trials and tribulations we truely feel blessed with all life has to offer us!
