This is my catch for you this week dear followers..I knew he saw me but what a look!


Sunday style on Utrechtsestraat

This is one of my favorite streets for shopping, people watching, coffee drinking, and of course cycling. I never tire of watching the stylish peeps riding by. Boots, scarves, beards, berets, colorful bags. Eye candy galore!

Plus, everyone always slows down to look at the shop windows (which are always oh-so enticing). Some people see me taking photos and give a smile. Thanks guys!

Flea market chic

Last weekend I went to the Ij Hallen flea market over in Noord. Have you been? It’s fun to check out all the funky stuff people are selling–and of course to people watch. Hipster mania! But all types of people, too. Old and young, local and foreign, it doesn’t matter.

My favorite parts of the journey are waiting for the ferry to get there, and waiting for the ferry to go back. Then you get to see all the cool stuff people picked up — often tied to their bike in creative ways. I always end up saying to myself “What!? How did I not see that!” Ugh, next time. Next time.

Amsterdam Beret Chic

Amsterdam Cycle ChicHow nice that people cycling together often seem to have the same style, for example these 2 cycling beret-styled.. I tell you: New trends are easy to be spotted in Amsterdam!

These boots are made for biking

It’s winter, so bring on the boots! Low boots, tall boots, boots with heels, cowboy boots–no matter the size, color or shape, Amsterdammers love their boots. Check out these Sunday boots on bikes…

The Lightbattle

Happy 2014 to all of you, guys! In the Netherlands, a new year only properly kicks off with the New Year’s dive. This sportive tradition is the ideal way to accomplish (for one day..)  New Year’s resolution #1: losing weight! For those not able to make it to the North Sea, Amsterdam has it’s own alternative: the Lightbattle.
Amsterdam Cycle Chic
On the most beautiful bike lane in Amsterdam, right below the Rijksmuseum, the young design collective VENIVIDIMULTIPLEX created the Lightbattle-installation for the Amsterdam Light Festival. Jump on one of these ten fancy VANMOOF’s and cycle together with friends or complete strangers. Try to get as many lights illuminated as possible.
Amsterdam Cycle Chic
Go have a look, you can find the Lightbattle right below the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam, and it will be there until January 19th 2014. This saddle is waiting for you…

Museumplein

So it’s almost Christmas. Everyone is already talking about it although  temperatures are not at the usual X-mas low. Admitted, the weather is even still quite enjoyable but I would not lay down on the grass of the Museumplein like these 2 do next to their bikes. So I wonder:

or they are listening to a classical concert performed in the Concertgebouw right in front,

or they are trying to get a cold not to go to work,

or they are in love!


Punky Sunday

Loving. This. Hair.

Enough said!

Office views

I am lucky that the social enterprise JO Cadeau that I founded has its headquarters (and to be honest, only quarters) in this amazing building by Dutch architect Aldo van Eyck. It is an anti-squat arrangement; you pay very little and rent a space in a building that would otherwise be empty or occupied by squatters. It is great. It is in the city centre, in the old Jewish neighbourhood. The only disadvantage is that you can suddenly be ‘kicked out’ when the building is sold.

I want to show you some essential parts of my days at the office, the view at the Hollandsche Schouwburg, the building and my great businesspartner Josje.

For lunch I love to go out to get some bread and nice Dutch cheeses that we eat all together (interns, freelancers and ourselves) in our office. When outside, I look at the cyclists. It is a diverse scenery at the Plantage Middenlaan. Check it out:
