So far, I have spend most of this November inside. After a few days in Amsterdam, where I went to see The Lumineers (yay!), the flu got the best of me. Today I’m finally back working at some illustrations. Here are some of my favorite things of the moment, including my new Dali Katch speakers. They sound even better than they look! I take them into my work room when I’m working, into my kitchen when I’m cooking, and yes, into my bedroom when I’m sick in bed with the flu. After all, music heals, hopefully even flu 😉

So far this October I have been very busy working on a number of projects. But I also made time for some shopping! After all, one of the most fun things about the start of a new season is sorting your wardrobe and adding some new (or rediscovered old) favorites! I love to mix new with vintage and I’m especially happy with my “new” vintage coat, that will keep me warm all winter!

Drinking: lots of tea with honey

September so far: sunshine, some orange in my Dutch wardrobe, The Lumineers’ Cleopatra on repeat and finally reading The Catcher in the Rye.
Summer means festival season and this was the first dry one this year, so no rubber boots this time! In stead, I could finally wear my new favorite summer dress and sandals 🙂

We’ve finally had a few lovely sunny days here! It was almost too hot to draw but I still managed to finished another calender page.
The Dutch summer so far: rain, rain and more rain. Excellent summer weather to stay inside, read, drink tea and have an occasional sunny cocktail.
This is actually not exactly what I’ve been wearing most at the moment. We’ve had nothing but rain for the last weeks. But yesterday was sunny and today is looking good so far, so I thought this would be a good time to share my “June’ illustration for my upcoming birthday calender (which has been a little bit delayed because of work on other projects, but it’s coming soon!)
Finally a few sunny days and even the first pick nicks of 2016! Also very happy with my new Marc Johns book.
Wearing: t-shirt, Alternative Apparel – bracelet, A la – small purse, Solmode – cap & jeans, H&M – sandals, Birkenstock – straw bag, vintage.
Book: The Daily Artist by Marc Johns.
Yes! The sunny part of spring has finally started in my city and I’ll be off to the park soon. But these have been my spring favorites for the more wintry part of the Dutch spring.
Wearing: boyfriend blazer, Newyorker – dress and tights, H&M – bracelet, Ala – bag, vintage – berry liptint, Maybelline – nail polish, Catrice – shoes, Carmens.
I’m longing for summer and this is what I want to be wearing to a lovely picnic in the park. But, no such luck with the Dutch spring. It’s more wool sweaters, extra socks and staying inside to escape the rain, wind and even snow! Luckily, I can always draw a sunny scene!
