happy friday

This morning I went for a morning-swim (at 7.20am). The water....hmmm.... quite chilly at first, but after a while it was divine. My weekend started with the appreciation for the Caribbean weather. I know it is cold and snowing in some places, so we need to appreciate the warmth wherever we can find it.....even if it is all the way in Morrocco for some people ;) So I decided to share some of this island beauty of Curacao with you (see images 2,4 and 6)

Tomorrow I will be starting my photography course, painting a Chichi (more on that to follow) and hopefully enjoy a few more swims. 
Have a splendid weekend. 
Enjoy. 
Smile loads. 
Look for the details.

happy friday



All so chic.

When you live in the Caribbean people somehow think you either live on the beach (ok, I have a view of the water in the morning), spend all your days eating coconuts (hmm, does coconut oil count) and go around wearing summer dresses (only in the weekend....I promise). In reality...we do tend to work here as well (with mandatory Caribbean vacations each weekend). So this weekend, to take a break from Curacao we are taking the yacht and heading to Aruba (yep....another island....cause really...who could get enough of this). On Sunday we'll be starting the engines early in the morning (I wrote "we" but in reality I have quite little to do with the whole process), making our way through the calm waters of "Spaanse Water" toward the Caribbean Sea and heading West to the happy island of Aruba (it takes about 5 hours at sea, enough time to simply enjoy the hundred shades of blue, the sound of the waves and the wind and a few magazines to entertain me). Ah, no worries....Tuesday I will be back at the office just like everyone else in the world.

As for my parents; they are enjoying a weekend in the Netherlands, soaking in the cool spring weather (recovery of the summer heat we have here), shopping a bit and lingering along cute Dutch cobblestone streets lined with delicious tiny restaurants and cafes. (ah yes.... I do miss that a bit as well actually.... thank goodness for travel).

Enjoy your weekend; wherever in the world you are.
Smile loads.

(gosh, I wish I could look this put-together and chic on the boat)

It's back to the office after a very windy and sunny weekend on the boat.
It's getting warmer on the island (yes it is possible) and we're looking forward to an activity filled month of April. Have a great one (day, week and month).

Smile loads

Good morning lovelies, I hope you woke up to a beautiful Friday morning (here there was a bit of rain storm....but it has calmed down now). This weekend there is carnival on the island. I must admit that I am not a avid carnival participant nor viewer. Thus I will spend the coming days lounging away on the boat and  having brunch with the girls on Sunday. Simply divine.
What fun are you up to this weekend?


Smile loads.
Enjoy every moment.
