We are strong believers of celebrating life as much as possible. So when the day came the team was finally complete again since ages (which is a rare occasion as Roos is located in Cape Town) we decided to go all out and celebrate it with a team shoot. And so the Live Loud Girl team got in front of the camera.

Processed with VSCO with hb1 presetWe have had a lot of bunny’s this spring as a run up to this happy holiday. As the kids will be off school and able to enjoy the beach before it heats up again, we will be working on some amazing projects that you will see more of later on this blog and on Instagram.

We’re looking forward this weekend to the traditional egg-hunt, protein filled breakfast  and lots of chocolate.  As a true Dutchie and sister of a florist I could not resist to bring some seasonal flower decorations into the home.

Hello sunny weekend! Hello little, big brother!
It is so nice to have visitors, especially when it’s family. My brother just arrived to spend the weekend with us. As Holland is grey and freezing at the moment, we are out to get him his shot of vitamin D and the boys are happy to tag along.

Uncle L. knows the drill and brought us lots of Dutch goodies. (I never dare to tell my family that some of them are available here in Dubai as for some reason they seem to taste better from back home).

Has everyone started the year well with a green juice, a 10K run and a list of resolutions that will be kept for the next 12 months?
As we love to start our styling projects with a white base, we also love starting a new year with a clean sheet. So tell us 2016, what will this brand new year bring?
We have some exiting installations planned that we will share with you soon. In one of them we will be adding a touch of Paris and a beautiful wool knitted bean bag of the very inspiring April & May.
With the new H&M Home collection we can easily bring so more green into our home. We love the tropical feel of these cotton cushion covers.
One of my personal resolutions is to have a juice or smoothy a day (a banana milkshake unfortunately does not fall into this category). Some great recipes can be found in the cookbooks of fellow Dutchie (and NYC lover) Rens Kroes.
Does playing with these cute pillows might help to keep up with our resolutions too? Cuddling a vegetable is always a good idea, especially when they are made of soft, luxurious baby alpaca wool which is hypoallergenic and eco-friendly. We love this Oeuf NYC range of pretty produce.

Happy healthy new year everyone!
