A few weeks ago, I did a little interview on the Dutch lifestyle blog Dejlig.nl. One of the questions actually inspired me to write this blog. It was question number four: What is your life motto? My reply (the short version) was: Be yourself. For the long version: check the interview on Dejlig.nl.

Lucille Ball power we can do it

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

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.
