Brand new site!

I can’t believe it!

I finally built myself a new website!

It cost me a lot of blood, sweat and tears, but it’s finally here. I feel like popping some prosecco…

The blog even includes a year full of new-old blogposts that my old site wouldn’t load (feel free to comment away ;)).



My city, Utrecht, is getting better and better everyday.


So many creative things are going on. Temporary stores and galleries are popping-up everywhere. The city is bubbling with energy this spring.


DepARTmentSTORE is already welcoming it’s fourth edition. Yesterday me and Mr Rockstar went to have a look and had to restrain ourselves from not buying every second thing we saw.

Do you see what this is? Little hint: it is called Dandlelight.

I have loved this little object ever since I saw Studio Drift’s amazing TEDtalk.

Let’s see if I can restrain myself from buying it…

The best artwork of all… Mr Rockstar’s huuuge cappucino!
