How I have gathered so many beautiful people around me over the years.

Oh, I don’t know… If I would have to think about something spontaneous: maybe DJ Isayapapaya? (grins)

It depends on my mood and surrounding. However, a black skinny jeans, white t-shirt and boots usually do the trick!

9. What are your plans for Sinterklaas?

10. When was the last time you had to laugh really hard?
I laugh a lot! I could tell you all the details, but it is always more fun if you were actually part of the moment.

11. What are your fashion essentials for coming winter?
A good pair of boots, my lammy’s and faux fur coats and a beautiful taupe colored lipstick.

12. City or beach?
I love to sunbath on the beach and to dive into the sea. However, I equally enjoy city life. A good mix of both would be perfect.
