Yesterday, I had a little rendez-vous with the 1950s again. I watched an episode of the I love Lucy show and it was hilarious. The I love Lucy show is a sitcom of the 50s starring Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz. The comedy serie is about Lucy Ricardo and her husband Ricky Ricardo. In every episode you can get a 25 minute peek in their marriage and (fictional) life. Thanks to our social media platform nowadays, that’s 25 minutes per episode – without ads. Thank you Youtube. Once again you make it possible to watch one (or two) season(s) in one night. Read more
We’re still in the celebration mood. Friday was the yearly Holi spring celebration where Hindus (and anyone else who likes to join) celebrate the arrival of spring. Yesterday spring was literally in the air and in my opinion a day that officially required sunglasses. So what do you do when you go outside?
Take Forget your sunglasses. Oh well, today is another sunny day. The forecast of warm sunny days for the next six months makes me really cheerful. First of all, I am the kind of person who embraces hibernation in January and February. Especially when we have really cold winters. Secondly: I love those spring (and summer) retro looks. So keep that sun coming! Read more
Ahh that special day of the year is coming again. It starts with a V, has eight other letters and you have a deadline of 24 hours for some (oh so) sincere love and romance and doing sweet (or spicy) things for your loved one(s), because well…that commercial tells you to. Cook a nice dinner, because love goes through the stomach. You can also have dinner in a nice restaurant like 80 percent of all the other couples on this day. Make sure that you buy her a red rose and chocolate like every other lady on this day. You can buy him…ehhh…beer. Yes, beer for him is always a good idea and once again incredible original. In Holland there is a special Valentine promotion related to Valentine postcards: send a free postcard with a trace of red lips in the stamp area. Men: if you do this, some eyebrows will rise so you should have some guts or…maybe it’s better for you to just buy a stamp.
