About me

Hi there! So obviously it is clear that I call myself ‘The Dutchess of London’.

I graduated in the summer of 2016 at Stenden University of Applied Sciences based in Leeuwarden. I studied International Hospitality Management with almost a decade of experience in the field and loving what I do. Even said this, I am ready to learn and develop more skills in the business world and start a new career elsewhere, my ambition is to get into Human Resources,. but who knows what will happen? Maybe I will roll back into the food industry, I would like to explore a bit more and find out where my heart truly lies.

I am born and raised in the East of The Netherlands in a lovely and warm family where food and music always brings us together. Every family photo you will come across; we sit around a table loaded with food or sit across the living room with a plate on our laps and making music together. I consider myself lucky to have such a loving and close family.

I moved to London after I graduated to build a career and be with my love.

I launched this blog after a long thought. I always liked to write stories since I was little, I used to make my own musical-scripts on our windows 98 when I was very young –Always kept these to myself, haha- or write a diary, but never kept that up. Couple of years ago I made a blog via blogspot, but never truly had the feeling that the blog was truly my own –obviously because of the .blogspot.com after the name of my blog back then-. So I gave it a long thought, talked about it with friends and family and decided to buy my own domaine and use WordPress.com as my host. And yes!  I am super happy with it now! Finally my own domain, my own blog!

There is still a lot that has to be changed before I am truly happy with this blog, need to customise it more and learn some design codes. More original ideas with subjects, writing skills… But that is the perfectionist in me. I hope that you will enjoy reading my blog and feel free to give me any feedback!
