It's Friday! Wonderful. 
Am so excited. Next week my friends and family are flying in for the annual Curacao North Sea Jazz Festival. 
It's going to be busy and so much fun. Thursday we have the first BBQ planned flowed by loads of beach days, amazing music and a ton of activities. 

So this weekend, it will still be a bit of relaxing and loads of preparations. 

Have a great weekend. 
Smile loads.

Good morning and welcome to yet another beautiful Friday morning. 
It is a bit cloudy on this paradise island, but at my parents home all is pink. 
My aunt will be arriving from Amsterdam today for a short visit and we are surprising her with a baby-shower in honor of her granddaughter that will be born in a few weeks. 
Beautiful pink candles, pink balloons and sweet colored plates.....with loads of delicious food of course. 

Have a splendid weekend. 
May it be filled with smiles, laughter and some pink.

Ahh summer, such a lovely season. 
When I lived in Amsterdam (where the weather is not a great as I would have liked it) I would love the idea that July was nearing. The anticipation of warm weather (hopefully), the sweet flowers, flying to Spain and France to enjoy the long lazy afternoon looking over the Mediterranean and the long evenings filled dinner and laughs with the girls. 

Have a splendid weekend. 
It will be a long one here, Monday we have off as well. 
Smile loads. 
Laugh much.

happy friday with paper passion


Paper Passion fragrance by Geza Schoen, Gerhard Steidl, and Wallpaper* magazine, with packaging by Karl Lagerfeld and Steidl.



“The smell of a freshly printed book is the best smell in the world.”

Karl Lagerfeld

This tells the story of a passion and a twisting plot to put the particular bouquet of freshly printed books in a bottle. Gerhard Steidl was first alerted to the importance of the smell of a book by Karl Lagerfeld, prompting a passion for paper and the composition of a scent on the pages of a book. To Wallpaper* magazine the pairing of the publisher with the perfumer seemed a natural partnership and so the idea for Paper Passion was born. Wallpaper* Magazine commissioned master perfumer Geza Schoen to create a fragrance based on the smell of books to be part of the Wallpaper* magazine Handmade exhibition in Milan.


This is an opportunity to celebrate all the glorious sensuality of books, at a time when many in the industry are turning against them. The idea is that is should relax you, like when you read a book, to a level of meditation and concentration. Paper passion has evolved into something quite beautiful and unique. To wear the smell of a book is something very chic. Books are players in the intellectual world, but also in the world of luxury.

Hidden inside the pages of a book, Paper Passion is accompanied by texts from Karl Lagerfeld, Günter Grass, Geza Schoen and Tony Chambers.


“You have a book, you open it, there’s a bottle inside and it smells of a book. It might be quirky, but the idea has a simplicity, a linearity.”

Geza Schoen


Have a wonderful weekend. 
Enjoy every moment. 
Smile loads. 
Laugh much. 
Read a book. 


Thank you for visiting.

We have a long weekend coming up, with Queens Day on Monday, followed by Labour day with many fun activities on the island. We'll spend the weekend at the races, enjoy all the orange one can handle in Willemstad to celebrate Queens Day and of course make some time for the beach. 

Have a beautiful weekend. 
May it be filled with loads of smiles and great laughter.
