dr.brandt bloemen

A small tribute to Dr. Brandt!

I am using the DNA (Do Not Age) skincare line of Dr. Brandt since a couple weeks. He is a famous dermatologist and has clinics in New York and Miami.
The DNA line is developped for an older skin and gives more fullness and youth to the face.

      We are always looking for nice places to shoot some nice pictures. This time we chose for the area called Jordaan in Amsterdam. This is one of my favorite neighbourhoods because it has a lot of restaurants and stores.

Koningsdag in Amstelveen

Kingsday2Yesterday was the annual, typical Dutch holiday where everybody in Holland wears orange: Kingsday. This day is one big party for Dutch people and tourists; a lot of people go to Amsterdam to celebrate the king’s birthday. There are flea markets, festivals and bars with music on the street everywhere on this day through the whole city.

Despite that it is not really my thing to dress up in orange and walk through the city all day; I can imagine why a lot of people do love it. It is part of the Dutch culture and if you never been to Holland to celebrate it I would really recommend it. It is an experience!

american flag

I have bought my first piece of art from artist Peter de Vries a month ago.  He had an exposition in Amsterdam in a building on one of the canals which burned down on New Years eve a couple of years ago!
Peter makes these beautiful and original paintings and the American flag he made for me exists from layers of paint over an original American flag. Every time I see the painting, I am so happy that it is mine.
