Bye Bye Queen! Welcome King!

Bye Bye Queen! Welcome King!

Tomorrow (April 30) our beloved Queen Beatrix is abdicating from the throne, letting her son Willem Alexander become our King. Every year we have celebrated Queen’s Day and this will be the last Q-day for some time – next year we will have King’s Day a couple of days earlier – so I want to make this one count!
I bought myself “royal” lemonade: the King is orange flavoured (our national colour) and the Queen is strawberry-flavoured (in Dutch we call them summer kings). With the groceries I also got a special edition “wup” which was a promotion stunt with the World Championship Football. And as is traditional in my family, I am going to spend most of the day on a huge rummage sale.
To look all fancy for the day I did my nails up in the national colour (Catrice 560 Rusty but sexy) as well as our flag (Oriflame True Red, Etos pencil, Mavala 130 Aqua Blue) as an accent. All I need now is my orange hairclip and a bit of sunshine and I am good to go.
Have a good one this year!

Somehow I got lucky this week because on Friday my parents took us to a new concept restaurant that I would like to share with you. And while hubby and my dad were at the Fawlty Towers Dining Experience, my mom, my brother with his wife and myself went to the restaurant.

It’s my Birthday!

keep-calm-and-celebrate-my-b-day-15Well it was some time ago – January 5 – but I put so much work in it back then that I decided to use the pictures I made for a friend who couldn’t be present to create this series of blog posts. I would like to apologise straight away for some crappy photo work – They were taken the moment the first guests were ringing the door!
